    updated 2 hours ago Conor Lamb will win Western Pennsylvania's special election race for Congress on Tuesday if there is a surge in Democratic turnout similar to what has been seen in other special elections over the past year, according to a Monmouth University poll out Monday. The Monmouth poll's “Democratic surge” model shows Lamb collecting 51 percent of the vote compared with Saccone's 45 percent, while 1 percent of likely voters would opt for a third-party candidate and 3 percent remain undecided. The poll's margin of error is 5.1 percent. Monmouth said Lamb holds a slim advantage within the...
  • New Poll Shows Conor Lamb Leading Saccone In Race For 18th Congressional District

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – With just days to go before Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional special election, a new poll shows Democrat Conor Lamb leading Republican Rick Saccone. The Emerson College poll shows Lamb leading Saccone 48% to 45%, but it’s worth noting that is within the margin of error. The college says the data was collected between March 1-3 using an online and landline sample of nearly 500 likely voters. The survey shows that this special election has garnered a lot of voting excitement, with 56% saying they are very excited to vote. Lamb is leading 57% to 40% in Allegheny County...

    President Trump’s job approval rating is at 42 percent according to a new Marist poll, the highest it’s been in the poll since he took office more than a year ago. Trump's approval rating rose from the 38 percent he received in the poll last month. And the percentage of Americans who strongly approve of Trump held at 24 percent from last month’s survey, an all-time high for the president.
  • Swing State Polls Look Good for Trump in 2020

    RUSH: I mentioned the polls earlier about swing states and the reelection in 2020. Now, I’m gonna say again that polls to me are irrelevant this far out. They don’t really mean anything. They do, however, impact the way people feel. They can impact people’s moods, attitudes, and in some cases can cause certain people to act in certain ways. But terms having any real meaning, they don’t. A presidential poll today of Donald Trump and any of the other potential Democrats doesn’t mean anything, and let me prove it to you. Here we are on the 8th of March...

Donnelly has 45 percent of votes, with 51 percent voting Republican. McCaskill is down 44 percent to Hawley's 52 percent. The polling was closer for Heitkamp. The survey said she would garner 47 percent, versus 49 percent for a generic Republican challenger.

    Democrats hold a 15 percentage point lead over Republicans in a generic House ballot, according to a new Quinnipiac University Poll released Tuesday. A majority of those polled, 53 percent, said they would like Democrats to win control of the House in this year's midterm election. Thirty-eight percent said they would like the GOP to keep control of the lower chamber, while nine percent said they did not know or did not provide an answer. The 53 percent is up from the 49 percent who said earlier this month they would like the Democrats to take control of the House....
  • New poll shows Saccone holds slight edge over Lamb in congressional race

    A new independent poll shows Republican Rick Saccone leading Democrat Conor Lamb by just a few percentage points a month ahead of a congressional special election in a Republican-leaning district in Southwestern Pennsylvania. If voter turnout resembles other special elections this year, Saccone would get 49 percent of the vote to Lamb's 46 percent, with the remainder undecided or voting for a third party, according to the poll from Monmouth University Polling Institute. Turnout models based on 2014 midterm elections and presidential elections give Saccone an advantage of 4 percent to 5 percent, according to a news release with the...

    Hot Air ^ | 14 Feb 2018
    Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate. Nearly a quarter of voters, 23 percent, are undecided. Voters are split almost evenly along party lines. Democratic voters break for their party, 85 percent to 5 percent, while Republicans similarly favor the GOP, 84 percent to 8 percent. Among independent voters, 26 percent would vote for the Democrat, 25 percent for the Republican and nearly half, 49 percent, are undecided. The GOP’s 1-point advantage comes after three months of tracking in which Democrats...

    In my post yesterday about freshly-announced benefits from tax reform -- here's another bummer for Pelosi and friends -- I warned that in spite of Americans' positivity on the economy and growing support for the GOP-passed law, outsized Democratic enthusiasm threatens to make a 'blue wave' inevitable.  I stand by that analysis, but figured I'd keep you posted on data points and trends that push back against the 'doomed GOP' narrative.  One was the Monmouth poll we covered last week.  The latest national survey from Politico is another.  The president's approval rating is up to a respectable level, Republicans have...
  • Trump Destroys Narrative: Approval Rating Highest in Almost a Year, 1 Point Lower Than Obama

    On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to reach out directly to the American people, informing them about a new Rasmussen poll released Friday showing his approval rating jumped to 49 percent: “Rasmussen just announced that my approval rating jumped to 49%, a far better number than I had in winning the Election, and higher than certain 'sacred cows.'” The poll shows Trump going from a 45 percent approval rating on Feb. 1 to 49 percent. This is especially significant because former President Barack Obama had a 50 percent approval rating in the same poll at the same...

    Rasmussen ^ | 2 Feb 2018
    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Trump making substantial gains after Tuesday’s State of the Union speech, and achieving his highest voter approval since March 7, 2017. Likely U.S. Voters are evenly split at 49% in their approval or disapproval of President Trump’s job performance. The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 38% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -3. (see trends). These findings include the first two full nights of surveying following Tuesday’s speech.

    Super Bowl 52 is just a few days away, and after NFL regular season TV ratings fell by nearly 10% this season on average, one of the biggest questions pundits and sports media have is: Will the Super Bowl ratings be good? If the results of a new survey from Seton Hall University are to be believed, the answer might be no. Seton Hall surveyed 706 Americans across the country, via landlines and cellphones, from Jan. 29 to Jan. 31. The first question asked people how closely they follow the NFL. Of those who said they follow it "very closely,"...

    It’s just one poll from one polling outlet (albeit one given an A+ rating for accuracy and sound methodology by FiveThirtyEight). But for Democrats already concerned about the love shown the president in snap polls following last night’s State of the Union Address, the first 2018 national survey from Monmouth University lands like a punch in the mouth. Compared to its December poll, the new results (taken from interviews between January 28 and January 30) show big gains for both Trump and his party among registered voters. His December job approval rating, at 32 percent, was his lowest since taking...

    President Trump’s job approval rating has spiked 10 points over the last month and Republicans have erased a double-digit deficit in the generic ballot for the House, according to a new poll. The survey, conducted by Monmouth University, finds that 42 percent approve of the job Trump is doing, against 50 percent who say they disapprove. The same poll from December found Trump’s job approval at 32 percent, against 56 percent who said they disapproved.

    Nearly half of those who watched President Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday reacted "very" positively to the speech, according to a snap CNN/SSRS poll.

Only 22 percent said they had a "somewhat positive" reaction to the speech, while 29 percent reacted negatively. The results of that poll came less than two hours after Trump finished delivering his speech, in which he touted the tax...

    Americans blame President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats about equally for the three-day government shutdown that ended Monday with another stopgap spending measure, according to a new NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll. About 4 in 10 people, or 39 percent, think Democrats in Congress are responsible for the shutdown, which began early Saturday morning after Senate Democrats, citing insufficient progress on negotiations over the fate of young immigrants covered by the DACA program, withheld their support for a deal. A similar share, 38 percent, blamed Trump for the shutdown. Just under 2 in 10 (18 percent) said Republicans in Congress were to...
