  • 31% – The reason the media is pushing Omarosa

    According to Rasmussen, President Trump’s approval rating among black voters is 31%. And that my friends is exactly why the media is hopping on the Omarosa bandwagon. Sure, they know her book is about as credible as an email from a Nigerian prince. But they don’t care. They need to ratchet up the “Trump is a racist” meme because the Democrat Party is hemorrhaging black voters. Dianny 🇺🇸 @DiannyRants And here, right here, is why the “Trump is a racist” narrative is back in the news. It’s shameless and craven damage control on behalf of the Democrats. Rasmussen Reports ✔...
  • Democrats favor socialism over capitalism for the first time, poll shows

    Democrats now view socialism more positively than capitalism, according to a new Gallup poll that comes as self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist politicians capture the party’s attention. The poll could add to a growing debate about the trajectory of the Democratic Party, which has seen increased energy around socialist movements and more candidates willing to step out on that economic platform, according to Frank Newport of Gallup: “Socialist Bernie Sanders competitively challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, and more recently, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a candidate with similar policy views and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, won...
  • Poll: Three-quarters of Americans say Nancy Pelosi should be replaced, including half of Democrats

    The Hill ^ | August 9, 2018 | Matthew Sheffield
    Only 27 percent of people surveyed in a new poll think Democrats should keep Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as their leader in the House, with nearly half of Democrats surveyed saying the caucus should pick a new chief. The new American Barometer poll released Thursday by Hill.TV and HarrisX found that just 51 percent of Democrats surveyed think that House Democrats should keep Pelosi as their leader. Forty-nine percent said the caucus should pick a new leader. Seventy-nine percent of independents said that Pelosi should be replaced, while 91 percent of Republicans said House Democrats should pick a new leader....
  • NAACP's own poll reveals surge in black support for Trump – and they react badly

    American Thinker ^ | 08/09/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Dependence on 90% voting support from African-Americans for electoral success is the jugular vein of the Democratic Party.  President Trump's rising support among black voters is correctly seen as an existential threat to the party's – and progressivism's – ability to win national elections.  That's why I thought it was big news last Saturday when Rasmussen proclaimed that black approval of Trump had hit 29%, even though most of the media ignored it for reasons AT readers well understand. But the surge in black support for President Trump is real – so real that even the far-left NAACP discovered it in a poll,...

    President Trump's public approval numbers have hit 50% among likely voters, according to a new Rasmussen poll, which is good news for midterms. And who should be pushing those ratings to el norte? No kidding: Hispanic voters. You know, the ones who are supposed to hate Trump with a passion. After all, doesn't the press dutifully report that Trump is an enemy of illegals, and aren't illegals in the same conventional wisdom simply synonymous with Hispanics, and with Hispanics and illegals all the same thing, isn't it all just proof that Trump is racist? Here's what the Washington Times, now...

    An Emerson College e-Poll released on Monday shows that Tuesday’s special election in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District is a dead heat between Democrat Danny O’Connor and Republican Troy Balderson. The Emerson College Polling Society said in a statement accompanying the release of the poll: The final US Congressional special election before the November midterm elections will be held on August 7 in Ohio’s 12th district and it shows a neck and neck race: The Democrat, Franklin County Recorder Danny O’Connor has 47% of the vote and Republican, State Senator Troy Balderson is at 46%, 7% of very likely voters were...

    Are Hispanics shifting their allegiances to President Trump? A recent Harvard/Harris poll recorded a 10-point spike in Hispanic support for Mr. Trump.... Republican Gov. Rick Scott is besting his Democratic opponent among Hispanics, according to a Mason-Dixon poll. Unemployment among Hispanics has fallen to its lowest level in decades, and there’s little doubt that Mr. Trump’s pro-business policies are the reason. There’s even more cause for optimism looking ahead. Mr. Trump’s $1 billion infrastructure plan will benefit the country as a whole, of course, but there’s a silver lining for Hispanics, who constitute nearly 30 percent of the U.S. construction...

    Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) is trailing Democratic challenger Tony Evers by 13 points in the upcoming Wisconsin gubernatorial race, according to a new poll released Thursday. Of the registered voters surveyed in the NBC News/Marist poll, 41 percent backed Walker in the race, compared to the 54 percent who supported Evers. When asked if Walker deserves to be reelected, 34 percent of the voters agreed with the statement. Sixty-one percent said a new person should be given a chance, and 5 percent were unsure.
  • Poll: Americans overwhelmingly reject voting rights for undocumented immigrants

    San Francisco's Department of Elections last week made the move to start allowing non-U.S. citizens to vote in the city's school board elections, sparking a national debate. The idea is unlikely to be copied in many localities, at least if the latest American Barometer poll is any indication. According to the survey, which is a joint project of Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, 71 percent of respondents opposed San Francisco's decision, while only 29 percent said they supported the move. Ninety-one percent of Republicans polled said they opposed giving the right to vote to noncitizens, as did 54 percent...

    New polling shows Missouri Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley with a slight lead over Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in what promises to be one of the country’s tightest and most consequential races. The new head-to-head survey, which was conducted last week by GOP pollster Remington Research, shows Hawley two points up on McCaskill, 48-46. The poll provides the first glimpse into Missouri voters’ thinking on the race since Republican governor Eric Greitens resigned in May over allegations of sexual misconduct and violations of campaign finance law, bringing an abrupt end to a months-long scandal that was widely seen as a...

    President Trump's approval rating among Americans stands at 48 percent, a new poll shows. The poll from American Barometer, a new joint project by Hill.TV and HarrisX, showed that among those who approve of Trump's job performance, 23 percent did so "strongly" while 25 percent did so "somewhat." The survey also showed 52 percent disapproved of Trump's performance, with 38 percent doing so "strongly" and 14 percent disapproving "somewhat.” The poll was released on Wednesday's edition of the new online video show "What America's Thinking" with Joe Concha. Dritan Nesho, a pollster and CEO of HarrisX, said the new findings...

    FULL TITLE: Gallup says women slightly more pro-choice than men but veteran pro-abortion pollster says women are “less likely to be pro-choice” We’ve previously discussed three of Gallup’s promised six-part series on abortion and public opinion (see here; here and here). Among other conclusions, we can say * More people still consider abortion morally wrong (49%) than morally acceptable (43%); * Unlike so many other “social issues,” where Americans’ views “have been growing more liberal, the 2018 survey results confirm that abortion continues to be an exception to the trend, with generally stable attitudes”; * 48% of Americans said they’re...

    While Democrats attack Trump at every turn, here are 13 sure-fire ways Democrats can continue to alienate an electorate months before the midterm elections: 1. Demonize your opponents—call them ignorant, racists, xenophobes, sexists, and Islamophobes. Resist dealing with real issues or your own positions. Stay on attack and foster hysteria at every opportunity! 2. Let the immigrants waiting years in line to come to America legally wait longer. Establish sanctuary for illegal aliens keeping them in the shadows dependent on your support. 3. Keep claiming that the rich don’t pay their fair share! They do, but transferring their wealth to...
  • Public Support For Mueller Investigation Waning

    07/23/2018 9:31:21 AM PDT · by blam · 11 replies
    Americans are losing support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mueller oversees the investigation into Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and he also examines whether the Russian government worked with Trump during the election. The special counsel investigation began when President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey. Mueller’s inquiry has been going on for over a year now. At the start of the investigation, almost three-quarters of Americans believed the Russia investigation should continue. Now, that same support is down to a near even split: 52 support-45 against.

    American Thinker ^ | 07/23/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    I suppose that when NBC News commissioned its latest poll on President Trump's popularity in the wake of Helsinki, the network's people were not expecting it to rise to the highest level ever of his presidency. After all, the nearly unanimous media and "expert" reaction, including among many Republicans, was that something unspeakable happened in the press conference following the meeting with Putin. That was gospel. But the American people failed to react as their media masters would have them do. MSNBC host Kasie Hunt complained, "We are living in a different space-time continuum, where even gravity works differently." Well,...
