  • Europeans harden views towards US and EU after pandemic

    “Trust in Trump’s America is gone.” The coronavirus crisis has caused a dramatic deterioration in the European public perception of the US and left many believing the EU had become “irrelevant”, new polling finds. The new survey by the European Council for Foreign Relations (ECFR) says the pandemic has traumatized Europeans and left them “feeling alone and vulnerable”. The survey studied the views of Europeans towards the EU and notably its response to the coronavirus crisis and the results did not make for positive reading. “There is a powerful sense among citizens of almost all surveyed member states that their...

    In a trial heat for the 1984 presidential election, former Vice President Walter Mondale is now leading President Ronald Reagan by a 53-44 percent margin. This is the first time in modern political history that an incumbent president has run behind his potential opponent so early in his term.

    Polling guru Nate Silver sees "a lot of issues" with President Trump's quest for reelection in November. So much so that a "landslide" for Joe Biden is possible. Silver appeared on ABC over the weekend to share the "big news" that FiveThirtyEight released its presidential polling averages last week.

    A Gallup poll published Monday found that only 20 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 are "extremely proud to be an American." This is the lowest percentage of any demographic, falling 23 percent since 2017. According to the poll, this is the sixth consecutive year of decline in American pride across all demographics, and the first time "extreme pride" among whites fell below 50 percent. American pride among nonwhites is 24 percent. The partisan gap in American pride also fell to 43 percent from 54 percent a year ago. This year, 67 percent of Republicans—a 9...

  • Biden Leads Trump in New Polls, But He May Face an Enthusiasm Gap

    PRESIDENT Donald Trump has a dramatically more enthusiastic voter fan base than Joe Biden, according to a new poll. But the presumptive Democratic nominee still leads, nationally, benefiting from a deep desire among his supporters to get Trump out of office. The national survey, conducted by SSRS for CNN, found that 7 in 10 Trump voters are voting to reelect the president primarily because they support Trump, with 27% saying their decision is a vote against Biden. The former vice president, meanwhile, has a less-devoted following, with 37% of Biden voters saying they plan to cast a pro-Biden vote, and...

    A fascinating result considering how he was polling after his fateful impeachment vote. I’ll give you three theories to explain it. A new 2News survey shows 56 percent of Utah voters either “strongly” or “somewhat” approve of Romney’s job performance. 42 percent say they disapprove. Romney is in a strong political position right now with a net positive approval of +14.That’s a massive reversal from our previous survey in March when just 36 percent of Utahns approved of Romney’s job performance, while 49 percent disapproved…69 percent of “strong” Republicans disapprove of how Romney is handling his job, but...

    As the coronavirus pandemic rips through the world, the uncertainty is so great that it’s sillier than ever to read so much into polls this far out from the election. First, polls were ineffective in predicting Trump’s 2016 victory. In 25 polls of Pennsylvania, Hillary was ahead in all but one of them. Trump led in only one Michigan poll in all of 2016. He never led in one poll in Wisconsin, a state in which Clinton was up by 6.5 points in the RealClearPolitics average ahead of Election Day yet Trump ended up winning all three states. Second, there's...
  • Trump’s poor handling of the crisis may lose him the GOP’s most reliable voters (fake news makes predictions)

    05/25/2020 7:11:56 PM PDT · by Libloather · 94 replies
    One of the most durable political assets that Republicans have enjoyed throughout the 21st century is their edge among Americans 65 and older, who tend to turn out at the polls more reliably any other group. But with President Trump’s inept and erratic handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic, he is rapidly losing support among the age group most vulnerable to its ravages - which is a big warning sign to Republicans as they look to the fall. Trump has also been showing slippage in support among the next-oldest cohort, those 55 and older. The shift has been showing up...

    If you believe a new survey, Germans are turning to China in the wake of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. “Germans view the United States less positively since the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis while their attitudes toward China have improved,” the German public broadcaster DW News reported citing the survey. The broadcaster added that “73% stated that their opinion about the United States had deteriorated due to the current health crisis caused by the novel coronavirus,” compared to only 36 percent who looked more unfavorably towards China since the outbreak. “Coronavirus turns Germans more critical of US,” the DW News...
  • Trump will lose in a landslide because of the economy, new election model predicts

    The economy has gone from President Donald Trump's greatest political asset to perhaps his biggest weakness. Unemployment is spiking at an unprecedented rate. Consumer spending is vanishing. And GDP is collapsing. History shows that dreadful economic trends like these spell doom for sitting presidents seeking reelection. The coronavirus recession will cause Trump to suffer a "historic defeat" in November, a national election model released Wednesday by Oxford Economics predicted. The model, which uses unemployment, disposable income and inflation to forecast election results, predicts that Trump will lose in a landslide, capturing just 35% of the popular vote. That's a sharp...

    Barack Obama would beat Donald Trump if he could run for president again by more than 10 per cent if an election were held today, a poll revealed Wednesday, as tensions between the former president and successor spiked this month. The survey, taken May 18-19, shows that there is still significant public support for the former president over the current White House resident by a margin of 54 per cent to 43 per cent. Progressive public relations consultant, Eric Schmeltzer, took $4,500 out of his own pocket to personally commission the poll with Public Policy Polling to see who would...
  • SHOCK CNN POLL: Trump Leads Biden By 7 Points in the Battleground States, Despite Trailing By 5 Overall

    A new poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump in a standoff over their national support and their momentum in battleground states. A CNN study conducted by SRSS found that 51 percent of national registered voters back Biden, while 46 percent are behind Trump. This is a 2 percent drop for Biden since the poll had him at 53 percent in April while the president has jumped up 4 percent from his previous rating of 42. The poll featured an oversampling of registered voters living in battleground states, and the findings among that subset indicate that...

    While the White House looks ahead to reopening houses of worship, most Americans think in-person religious services should be barred or allowed only with limits during the coronavirus pandemic — and only about a third say that prohibiting in-person services violates religious freedom, a new poll finds. States have taken different approaches to resuming gatherings as the coronavirus continues to spread, raising tough questions for religious leaders and the faithful about the appropriate time to return. But the findings of the new poll by The University of Chicago Divinity School and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research suggest...

    A broad majority of Georgia voters support a statewide shelter-in-place to combat the spread of the coronavirus, according to a University of Georgia survey released as Gov. Brian Kemp debates whether to extend stay-at-home orders set to expire Thursday night. The survey found about one-half of registered Georgia voters support the mandate that took effect April 3, and an additional one-quarter of voters “somewhat back it.” Only about 10% of Georgians oppose the idea; the rest are neutral or undecided. And roughly 62% of Georgia voters disapprove of Kemp’s decision to ease restrictions on restaurants, theaters and close-contact businesses such...
