    Morning Consult ^ | April 26, 2017 | Cameron Easley
    Public support for the Iranian nuclear agreement continues to grow after the Trump administration confirmed last week that the country was complying with the deal, a new Morning Consult/POLITICO survey shows. In the poll, conducted in the days after the administration said it would extend sanctions relief to Iran in exchange for the country curbing its atomic program, 56 percent of registered voters said they supported the deal, up from 49 percent who backed it in August 2016 and 27 percent who OK’d it in August 2015. Roughly 3 in 10 (29 percent) remain opposed the deal. Republicans registered the...

    The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University, found that 66% of voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that climate change will harm them or their family personally. And voters said they want those views reflected in policy. More than three fifths of voters — 62% — opposed Trump's targeting of regulations intended to fight climate change. A total of 72% of respondents said the government should not cut funding for scientific research—something proposed by the White House.

  • Legislation seeks to eliminate $1 Federal Reserve note, Lincoln cent

    Coin World ^ | March 31, 2017 | Bill McAllister
    Advocates of abolishing the $1 Federal Reserve note are at it again, this time hoping that President Donald Trump and conservative Republicans will finally side with their three-pronged approach to revamping the nation’s currency system. Under S. 759, introduced March 29 by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., the government would end production of the $1 Federal Reserve note, revise the composition of the 5-cent coin, and suspend production of 1-cent coins. While the draft legislation calls for an end to paper dollar notes and the cent, it is silent on dollar coin production. Backers of the legislation...
  • Bill O’Reilly Reveals Megyn Kelly’s “Nickname” at Fox News. She’s NOT Happy.

    (Angry Patriot) – During her tenure at Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly were constantly at each other’s throats — often over her selfish attitude and need to make everything about her. So, it makes perfect sense that O’Reilly revealed that her nickname was “Me-Again” Kelly, via Washington Feed. According to O’Reilly, it was “always about Megyn,” which is not hard to believe. All of the drama surrounding Kelly is coming out in the open after she tore up her contract with Fox News, with some months still remaining on it. Kelly was on a break from Fox News...

    Remember last June how shocked almost everyone was when Britons voted to leave the European Union?By the usual measurements of economic growth (2%), unemployment (down to 4.9%) and standard poll questions on intent, professionals and many others were pretty certain the United Kingdom would decide to remain in the EU that it fought so long and hard to enter.Oops.Turns out, if media had measured “Happiness,” they’d have recognized the historic looming Brexit upheaval. Same for anticipating the Arab Spring.In the 24 months preceding last June’s vote, Gallup found the number of British people who rated themselves happy, thriving, satisfied...

    The Associated Press on Monday released a news making story with a glaring headline claiming that "Most young Americans don’t see Trump as a legitimate leader." A closer look at the survey finds it was conducted by a group financed by billionaire George Soros whose activist arm demands reparations for slavery and "mass incarceration," and has engaged in anti-police activism. In addition, the survey was not representative of the racial and ethnic profiles of young adults. Instead it focused heavily on demographic samples of populations that voted overwhelmingly against Donald Trump.

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 20, 2017 | Madeleine Weast
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has changed her media strategy amid low poll numbers in her home state by making herself more available to the press in Massachusetts. Warren's "creative media-dodging habits are a running joke among her home-state press corps," Politico reported over the weekend. "Whenever the senator makes a public appearance, Massachusetts reporters know to keep one eye fixed on the exit doors." Last week, however, the Massachusetts Democrat held three open-to-media events in her home state. Each event was followed by lengthy huddles with reporters. [Snip] Terry MacCormack, the Massachusetts Republican Party's communication director, does not find...

NORC interviews participants over the phone if they don’t have internet access. With a probability basis and...

    A majority of Americans believe the establishment media is acting as the primary political opponent to President Donald Trump, according to a new poll by TIPP. Fifty-five percent of the public told TIPP that they are “weary from the media’s persistently negative coverage of President Trump,” and 54 percent say the news media “has assumed the role of the opposition party, constantly opposing the president and his policies at every turn,” according to an article in Investors Business Daily, which sponsored the TIPP poll. The result supports the argument by Steve Bannon, Trump’s strategist, who described the establishment media in...

Sixty-five percent hope at least part of the Affordable Care Act's current form remains intact in a McClatchy/Marist survey released Monday. Twenty percent say lawmakers should let the healthcare law stand as is, while 38 percent want any changes to enable it to do more and 7 percent hope alterations make it capable of less.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — An exclusive new Survey USA poll offered a stunning snapshot of where the Bay Area stands on immigration Monday, with the new numbers revealing that more local residents are backing President Trump’s policies than you might think. The KPIX 5 Survey USA Poll showed more than half of people support a key element of the President’s immigration policy. 53 percent said local law enforcement should always contact federal authorities about illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes. The even bigger surprise was the number of Bay Area Hispanics who supported notifying the feds. While the mayors...
  • CPAC straw poll shows conservatives with Trump, think he's 'realigning' movement

    Fox News ^ | Feb. 25, 20117 | Fox News
    Conservatives appear fully behind new Republican President Trump, based on a straw poll Saturday at the annual CPAC summit in which attendees gave him an 86 percent approval rating and overwhelmingly agreed that he was “realigning” the movement. Trump, whose views do not always align with those of fiscal or social conservatives, received high marks in the poll’s 12 questions. Perhaps the most applause came when the event organizers announced that 33 percent of respondents said “reforming the tax code” was the biggest Trump campaign promise they wanted him to fulfill. “Donald Trump is actually doing things the conservative movement...

    Guest Essay By Larry Kummer. Posted at the Fabius Maximus website. Summary: To boost our fear, activists and journalists report the weather with amnesia about the past. Ten year records become astonishing events; weather catastrophes of 50 or 100 years ago are forgotten. It makes for good clickbait but cripples our ability to prepare for the inevitable. California’s history of floods and droughts gives a fine example — if we listen to the US Geological Survey’s reminder of past megafloods, and their warning of the coming ARkStorm. ” A 43-day storm that began in December 1861 put central and southern...
