    Reality never campaigns for Democrats.However, judging from the total silence over Monday's Reuters/Ipsos generic ballot poll, the nation's media certainly does. How else could an objective observer explain an apparent decision by every single mainstream outlet to ignore such a clear opportunity for website traffic?On Monday at 2:49 p.m., Thomson Reuters' Polling Editor Chris Kahn tweeted this shocker: the Democratic Party has completely lost the double-digit edge it held just weeks ago: Say good-bye to the D-advantage in the generic ballot. Our latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that registered voters as likely to support Republicans as Democrats. @ReutersPolitics—...

    Nearly 2 in 3 Americans think the nation’s economy is in good shape, and most of them believe President’s Trump’s policies are at least somewhat responsible for that. More Republicans rate the economy positively than do Democrats. As Congressional primaries continue and Americans look ahead six months to their midterm votes, Mr. Trump looks like a positive factor among Republicans, 7 in 10 of whom say they’d prefer a candidate he backs — but the president’s influence is limited to his own party. More Independents say they’re less likely to support a candidate backed by Mr. Trump. Meanwhile on the...
  • Hunt: Voters miss Obama because they respect integrity [BARF]

    Greensboro News & Record ^ | 5/20/2018 | Albert Hunt
    A CNN poll last week showed that most Americans think Barack Obama was a better president than Donald Trump has been. The margin was huge: 19 percentage points. Trump supporters will yell “fake news,” but they’ll be wrong. Respondents to the same survey thought Hillary Clinton would have been a better president than Trump, but only by three percentage points. By comparison, she bested Trump in the 2016 popular vote by 2.1 percentage points. The wide preference for Obama over Trump (and Clinton) has little relationship to public attitudes toward policies on taxes, health care or Iran policy. (Obama and...
  • President Trump's Approval Ratings Keep Going Up (GOP can still retain House at -7 generic ballot)

    In fact, since the start of this year, the percentage of Americans looking on their nation’s leader favorably has risen steadily. This has caused liberals no small amount of consternation. But in a new analysis of voters’ attitudes toward Trump — derived from more than a million interviews with voters in all 50 states — SurveyMonkey offers the most satisfying explanation of the president’s improving fortunes to date, while also putting Trump’s rebound in edifying perspective. Here’s a quick rundown of the pollster’s findings: How Trump has really been performing: Trump’s approval numbers are more remarkable for their stability than...
  • Poll: Optimism in Direction of Country Hits 11-Year High Under Trump

    A poll released by the far-left CNN shows that optimism about the direction of the country under President Trump has hit an 11-year high of 57 percent. The last time this same poll registered a number that high was in January 2007. This includes 40 percent of Democrats, which is a leap of 15 points from just last month. Only 40 percent say things are going badly. Also of note is that CNN polled a random sample of adults. Polls that screen for registered or likely voters generally produce a more favorable result for Trump. This poll is a good...

    The old conventional wisdom: What if Democrats take back both chambers of Congress this fall? The new conventional wisdom: What if Republicans never lose another election? Seriously, it’s a cinch that the GOP will lose House seats this fall. The growing mystery is whether they’ll lose enough to actually return Nancy Pelosi to power. Yesterday CNN found the Democratic advantage on the generic ballot down to three points. Today Reuters finds it down to one. Given the feelgood spectacle this morning of Trump and Pence greeting American hostages on their return home from North Korea, it’s quite possible that a...

    United States presidential candidate John McCain now retains a lead over Barack Obama in several polls conducted in the past few days. Both Zogby International and Rasmussen Reports have McCain with a slight, but not statistically significant lead. The most recent Gallup tracking poll has McCain with a statistical lead of 5.0 percent. The Day to Day Politics Poll Average also has a slight, but not statistically significantly lead of 0.4% for McCain. Obama had a 6.0 percent lead in the Day to Day Politics Poll Average after the Democratic National Convention, but now is trailing after the Republican National...

    CNN had a midterm elections message on Wednesday for its own Chris Cillizza: Don't count your electoral chickens before they hatch. As recently as Tuesday, Cillizza was hailing that "all signs are pointing to a Democratic wave." The very next day, CNN had some rather sobering news for the giddy Cillizza in the form of their poll, Democrats' 2018 advantage is nearly gone:

    The Hill ^ | 5/8/2018 | LUIS SANCHEZ
    A majority of Americans say special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election is politically motivated, according to a new CBS News poll. The poll, which comes nearly a year after Mueller’s investigation began, found that 53 percent of people think there are political motives to the investigation, while 44 percent think the investigation is justified. Despite the perceived partisan motivations, 76 percent said President Trump should still cooperate with the investigation if he’s asked to be interviewed. That is a drop, however, from January, when 84 percent of respondents said Trump should cooperate with the...

    A poll shows that President Donald Trump’s approval rating has spiked since April 27 — prompting the Reuters/Ipsos polling team to quarantine their data. “Every series of polls has the occasional outlier and in our opinion this is one,” the pollster announced. “So, while we are reporting the findings in the interest of transparency, we will not be announcing the start of a new trend until we have more data to validate this pattern.” The spike shows Trump getting 50 percent support from swing-voting independents, 80 percent support from the GOP and 20 percent support from Democrats, with very few...

  • Six out of ten voters in Sweden want fewer refugees: poll

    Sixty percent of voters want Sweden to take in fewer refugees than it currently does, according to an opinion poll. Conversely, more people think immigration is an overall benefit to Sweden than those who think it is detrimental. Six out of ten people who participated in the poll, carried out by market research firm Ipsos on behalf of newspaper Dagens Nyheter, said that Sweden should accept fewer refugees than current numbers.

    A national poll conducted of 1,000 likely voters by McLaughlin & Associates and former Clinton pollster Dick Morris provided exclusively to Breitbart News shows support for President Trump and suspicion of the investigation of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. By a margin of 51 percent to 33 percent, voters do not believe Mueller has found “real evidence of corruption by the president.” More specifically, by a margin of 10 points, 43 percent to 33 percent, voters feel that Mueller has not uncovered any evidence that “President Trump colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.” A plurality of voters, 43 percent...

    Never Trumpers like Ohio Governor John Kasich and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) are hoping they can derail President Donald Trump in New Hampshire in 2020, but Trump’s approval ratings are on the rise in the Granite State. According to the University of New Hampshire’s Granite State poll that was released on Monday, approval of Trump’s “overall job performance, handling of the economy and foreign affairs, and his personal favorability have all increased since February,” primarily because of the state’s key independent voters. The poll found that 41% of New Hampshire residents approve of Trump’s job performance, up from 35% in...

    As the shock of early elections announced yesterday begins to recede, a sense of inevitability is seizing Turkey. No matter what, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will emerge victorious, or so groupthink has it. The presidential and parliamentary votes — moved forward to June 24 from their scheduled date of Nov. 3, 2019 — will be held under emergency rule, seemingly allowing Erdogan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) to retain their iron grip.With last month’s sale of Turkey’s last notionally independent media empire, the Dogan group, to a pro-government businessman, state control of public messaging is near absolute. Selahattin Demirtas — the charismatic...
