  • CBS poll: GOP lead in generic Congressional ballot similar to final 2010 poll

    Hotair ^ | 10/30/2014 | Ed Morrissey
    It takes a while to get to this data in the CBS News report, as the Washington Examiner and Twitchy point out, but it’s real — and perhaps spectacular. One has to read to the ninth paragraph for CBS to get to the point of its latest and last national midterm poll, which takes burying the lede to a new and amusing level. What other data would a national media outlet survey five days before the midterms? The headline reads, “What Americans think of Congress and the President,” which is as generic a headline for a national political poll...
  • CNN poll: Voters are angry

    10/28/2014 3:42:50 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 35 replies
    Washington (CNN) -- Nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama's job performance, two troubling signs for Democrats one week before the midterm elections, a new CNN/ORC International Poll shows. Democrats are battling to try and save the Senate majority, while hoping to prevent more losses in the House, which the GOP controls by a 234 to 201 margin. In the Senate, Republicans need a net gain of six seats, and several state polls in the past month of contested races show that Democrats are...

    The midterm elections will take place one week from today, and so far the arc of the sixth-year midterm has provided few surprises in national polling, including today’s from the Washington Post and ABC News. Driven by a strong sense of disgruntlement, a majority of likely voters want a Republican Congress to deal with an ineffectual President Barack Obama. Mainly, they want competence to return to the federal government: Driving attitudes is a pervasive sense of a country in trouble. Overwhelming majorities say the country is badly off-track and give the economy negative ratings. Economic expectations are little better...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/23/2014 | Bruce Walker
    Every national poll by every recognized polling organization shows that conservatives dramatically outnumber liberals in America. For a covertly leftist establishment media, complete with organs of subtle propaganda and selective misinformation, the best strategy for handling the uncomfortable fact of a conservative majority in America is to hide or at least contort it. Treating conservatives like a despised minority is the very heart of leftist demonology. The left purports to represent America and claims vast powers because it is the champion of ordinary people. Terms like radical right wing and extreme conservative are the essence of leftist rhetoric. It is...

    President Obama is taking the Ebola threat seriously. For the second day in a row, he cancelled planned trips to meet with advisers. He authorized the call-up of National Guard members and reservists for possible duty in West Africa. However, he has so far rejected a call for a ban on incoming flights from countries with Ebola outbreaks, as called for by some Republicans. He said a ban could result in people trying to hide where they were coming from and thus becoming less likely to be screened.

Overall approval of the center-left president slipped 2 percentage points from August to 47 percent, said pollster Gfk Adimark, Bachelet's lowest rating in the monthly survey since returning to power in March. As well as flagging economic growth, there was a spate of bombings in capital Santiago in September, including one that left 14 people injured and another that left a man dead. Ahead of her second non-consecutive term, Bachelet promised an...

    The Associated Press, in partnership with GfK, a German market research firm, jointly released a poll. No big deal there, as people release polls every hour or two, especially in election season. But this one was considered unusual, because it revealed a truth that scared the American Left to their very core: Americans dont appear to trust government to solve their problems anymore. As with every poll, interpretation is dependent on whether we trust the questions to have been asked objectively (we dont), whether the respondents were given a comprehensive and clear array of possible answers to choose (they never...

In one area they had a poll, taken by the museum visitors (how many thousands would that be?), voting for the greatest president in history. George Washington came in first, Abraham Lincoln second, Barak Obama third. I always thought "my jaw dropped" was just a fanciful expression, but my jaw DID drop. Reagan, by the way was 4th.
