  • Trump averages highest approval rating of his presidency in second quarter: Gallup

    The Hill ^ | 07/18/19 | Jonathan Easley
    President Trump’s job approval rating is near its all-time high and his second-quarter average is the best of his presidency, according to the latest data from Gallup. From mid-April to mid-July, Trump’s 10th quarter in office, the president had an average approval rating of 42.7 percent. That topped his previous best quarter of 41.9 percent, which came during his sixth quarter in office. Gallup noted, however, that Trump’s job approval rating has fluctuated between a very narrow range of 36.8 percent to 42.7 percent, giving him a strong floor of support but a low ceiling. And Trump’s current job approval...

    Although U.S. adults think LGBT persons make up nearly 24% of the U.S. population, this is a dramatic overestimation, according to Gallup, which asserts that the LGBT population is in reality closer to 4.5%. Gallup also reports that the percentage of Americans identifying as LGBT is most prevalent among millennials. […] In May 2015, Gallup found that Americans thought LGBTs were 23.2% of the population, and in May 2011, they thought the percentage was 24.6%. […] Overestimations of the LGBT population may be due to their “outsized visibility” in the culture, especially through the media, said Gallup. …

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' confidence in the U.S. job market is the highest in Gallup's trend originating in 2001, with 71% in May saying now is a good time to find a quality job. This represents a significant improvement from March and April, when 65% each month rated the job market favorably. Today's level is similar to February's 69% reading. The latest survey was conducted May 1-12, with most of the interviews collected after the May 3 Labor Department report announcing that unemployment in April had fallen to 3.6%, the lowest in nearly 50 years. Gallup's national adult trend on...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Donald Trump's job approval rating increased relatively sharply over the past month to 45% in an April 1-9 Gallup poll, up from 39% in March. This marks the third time the 45th president has reached a 45% job approval rating in Gallup trends -- his highest in the series. Line graph.

  • Judicial Watch Uncovers More Classified Emails in Hillary Clinton’s Unsecure Email System

    (Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch today announced it received 756 pages of newly uncovered emails that were among the materials former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified and were transmitted over her unsecure, non-“state.gov” email system. Hillary Clinton repeatedly stated that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails. In response to a court order in another Judicial Watch case, she declared under penalty of perjury in 2015 that she had “directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com...

    Strong circumstantial evidence that, for the moment, she looms larger in the righty imagination than the lefty one.It’s also circumstantial evidence, albeit not as strong, that the Green New Deal isn’t the political winner its fans think it is.By no means is 31/41 a disaster, but Philip Klein notes that a different Gallup poll taken during the shutdown battle over ObamaCare in October 2013 found Ted Cruz’s favorable rating at 26/36 — identical to AOC’s in net favorability and actually slightly better in terms of lower unfavorability. To rephrase that, the obnoxious right-wing populist ringleader in a bright media...

    The first two years of Donald Trump's presidency haven't exactly been filled with stellar ratings from the public. Trump's approval rating in Gallup has never -- not one time -- been above 50% since he was sworn into office. His overall job approval number in the Real Clear Politics' average is below 44%. Almost six in 10 people disapproved of how Trump has handled the Russia investigation in a CNN-SSRS poll last month. On and on it goes -- bad numbers following bad numbers, leaving the poll-obsessed Trump to cherry-pick a piece of data here and there that suggests he...

    The latest Gallup Poll on February 22, 2019 has news that ought to be happy for conservatives.  In 43 states, conservatives outnumber liberals and in 6 states — Hawaii, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, and Washington — liberals outnumber conservatives.  California is evenly split.  The title of this article was actually better than most: "Conservatives Greatly Outnumber Liberals in 19 U.S. States." Those who have followed my articles over the last ten years know that every single polling organization — and practically all of these are leftist in tilt — show a conservative majority in America, and it has been the...

    You could be forgiven if you thought that the media onslaught against conservatives the last few years would have an effect on how most of the country views the right. That media campaign - directed against Donald Trump but also against conservatives - has been unprecedented in its scope and intensity. Conservatives are routinely portrayed as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Muslim, and paranoid xenophobes.  But Gallup found some remarkable conservative strength all across the country. Their latest survey shows that liberals outnumber conservatives in only 6 states and that there are 25 states where conservatives are polling above their national average....

    “It’s a heck of a turnaround,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said at the start of “Morning Joe” on Thursday, as he cited President Donald Trump’s rising poll numbers — despite the government shutdown. A Gallup poll conducted Feb. 1-10 shows Trump with 44 percent approval — up from 37 percent in mid-January. “The latest increase in approval is mainly the result of political independents’ improved opinions of Trump,” Gallup noted. Scarborough blamed Democrat “overreach” for boosting Trump, and he urged Democrats to be guided by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who “knows how to beat Donald Trump.” “Democrats can’t afford any more...

    In late 2017, someone online offered 25-year-old Jehan a maid-service job in a town six hours from her home outside Gallup, New Mexico. She was skeptical. She’d have to leave her two children behind temporarily, but she needed the income, so she and her sister Marissa, both Navajo Nation citizens, drove to a town near the New Mexico-Texas border. (Both sisters’ names have been changed to protect their identities.) Upon their arrival, the sisters were kidnapped and physically abused, and coerced by threats against their family. For months, they were forced into sexual acts and labor, with their earnings funneled...

    As the new 116th Congress is sworn in today, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) — who likely will be elected Speaker of the House by her colleagues — is viewed favorably by 38% of Americans and unfavorably by 48% of Americans, according to a recent Gallup survey. For comparison, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is viewed favorably by 30% of Americans and unfavorably by 48% of Americans. Congress overall — House and Senate — has an approval rating of 18% and a disapproval rating of 75%, according to Gallup. In the survey, Gallup asked Americans’ views of U.S. congressional leaders....

    Well, it’s Christmas Eve. For those of who are traveling today, hope you get to your respective family gatherings safely. In the meantime, on the political front, the Democrats have decided to shut down the government. They do not support border security. President Trump wants $5 billion for part of his wall. The Senate has adjourned and we could be in for a long showdown over this part of the spending package. Armageddon won’t come I assure you, but for those on the Left hoping that Trump’s approval ratings could take a hit—there are a few reason why it won’t...
  • Gallup: Americans Say No. 1 Problem is 'Government,' No. 2 is 'Immigration'

    CNS News ^ | December 18, 2018 | Michael W. Chapman
    A new survey shows that the "top problem" cited by Americans is "government," and the second top problem is "immigration." For contrast, among the issues seen as least problematic for Americans are "unemployment-jobs" and "gun control/guns." In the survey, conducted by Gallup after the midterm elections, the polling firm asked Americans about the country's top problems and then listed those issues that were "mentioned by at least 3% of respondents." Nineteen percent of respondents cited "government" as the problem, making it the top issue of concern. In second place came "immigration," cited by 16% of the respondents. However, when broken...

    Six-in-10 Americans disapprove of President Trump’s job performance, matching an all-time high for his disapproval rating in the Gallup Poll. A weekly presidential job approval tracker released Monday found that 60 percent of Americans disapprove of Trump’s performance, while 38 percent said they approve as of the week ending Nov. 25. The president’s disapproval rating has largely hovered in the mid-50 percent range in the Gallup poll, but this week marks the fourth time it has hit 60 percent.

    Five million Central American residents want to migrate into the United States, according to Gallup survey published right after the midterm elections. The caravans of economic migrants moving northwards to the U.S. border “actually represent a relatively small fragment of a much larger group of people in their own region — and around the world — who say they would like to move to the U.S. if they could,” said Gallup. The five million number is one-in-three adults in Central America, the survey firm said. But average birth rate and family size in Central America are roughly twice as large...
