  • Trump Will Win Again in 2020

    07/13/2020 12:16:08 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 73 replies ^ | July 13, 2020 | Bruce Eberle
    <p>The conventional wisdom is that Donald Trump is finished. He is behind in the polls, way behind. He’s losing the swing states. He’s off message. He is destined to go down to defeat in 2020.</p> <p>Baloney. Frankly, we really don’t even know if he is behind at this point because we have yet to see a poll of likely voters that shows him losing to Joe Biden. Polls of registered voters are less than worthless; they are always misleading as they were in 2016. As of July 2, 2020, a Rasmussen daily tracking poll shows that 46% of likely voters approve of the performance of Donald Trump. At this very same point in 2012 that same Rasmussen Poll showed Barack Obama with 48% likely voter support. In fact, these daily tracking polls have shown Trump and Obama at the same point in the year running a little ahead or a little behind each other in day-to-day tracking. But polls don’t elect a president, actual voters do.</p>

    Michael S. Dukakis is capitalizing on deep public doubts about Vice President Bush and the Reagan Administration's handling of key issues and has emerged as the early favorite for the Presidential election in November, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll. Mr. Dukakis, the probable Democratic nominee, ran ahead of Mr. Bush, the almost certain Republican candidate, by 49 percent to 39 percent among 1,056 registered voters. The survey, conducted May 9-12, represented a significant advance for Mr. Dukakis since a Times/CBS News Poll in March when Mr. Bush had 46 percent and Mr. Dukakis had 45 percent....

    The Global Times ^ | 2 June 2020 | Liu Caiyu and Wan Lin
    While the anti-racism protests continue to spread in the US, polls for the 2020 presidential election has cast a shadow on President Donald Trump as he trails his presumptive opponent former vice president Joe Biden in more than 40 national polls. Based on the results, some Chinese experts predict a defeat for Trump, but others noted that uncertainty still exists, given Trump's base and his vigorous reactions to the worsening street violence, which may win him more support later from people affected by the violence. Biden led in every single one of those more than 40 national polls in May,...

    After a bumpy few weeks, the Trump administration has found a firm footing in its response to Chinese Virus.After a bumpy couple of weeks, approval of President Trumps handling of the Chinese Virus has been on the rise according to two new polls. A new Ipsos/ABC poll released Friday shows 55 percent of Americans approve of the presidents response with 43 percent disapproving. A similar Harris poll found 56 percent approval and 44 percent disapproval.Just a week ago the Ipsos numbers were essentially reversed with approval hovering in the low 40s. In the early days of the Chinese Virus...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden has amassed a staggering 49-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Florida ahead of the states March 17 Democratic presidential primary, according to a survey released on Thursday by St. Pete Polls. The poll shows Biden leading the pack of candidates with about 61 percent support in the Sunshine State. His nearest rival in the poll, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, registered at 13.5 percent. Bloomberg ended his campaign on Wednesday after a poor showing on Super Tuesday and has since endorsed Biden. Sanders notched only 12 percent in the poll, just...

    We refer, of course, to Atlanta, Georgia-based strategist Robert Cahaly who landed on the national radar in 2016 after he was one of the only pollsters to correctly predict U.S. president Donald Trumps upset victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Cahaly has continued to hit the nail on the head ever since (especially in South Carolina), constantly refining his methodology as he generates incisively accurate results year after year, election after election. We have been bombarded in recent days with readers asking us if we had seen any Cahaly polling for the Democratic primary. Or whether any Cahaly numbers...
  • Contrary to popular belief, Many U.S. Jews support Trump

    Algemeiner ^ | January 12, 2020 | Yossie Hollander
    In the 2016 US presidential elections, most polls declared that 70% of American Jews voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. In my opinion, American Jewish support for Trump is far higher than commonly thought. Before you recommend sending me to a mental health clinic, please read my reasoning in the article below. The first question is, of course, who is a Jew? In the United States, voter registration does not indicate voter religion. Polls are conducted by companies that specialize in the Jewish population. The problem is that these companies are actually surveying a partial and unrepresentative group of the...

    President Donald Trump is enjoying a positive approval rating for the first time since his inauguration, according to a poll released Thursday. 49% of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing, compared to 48% who disapprove of Trumps performance, according to a Gallup poll published Thursday. The poll also found that the president is enjoying his highest approval ratings among Independents since taking office at 43%. The poll suggests that the current state of the economy could help the presidents re-election efforts this Fall, finding that 61% of Americans believe the economy is getting better compared to 33% of...

    Democrat presidential hopeful and billionaire Tom Steyer has requested a polling window extension in a letter to Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez ahead of the next Democrat presidential debate. When my campaign received the debate criteria for the next DNC debate in Nevada on January 31st, I was extremely disappointed to see that the Committee has narrowed the polling window significantly. The previous two polling windows have been 56-58 days and this recent period window has been cut to 35 days.

Donald Trump wins re-election or A giant meteor strikes the earth, extinguishing all human life." Sixty-two percent of Democrats picked the meteor, while 38 percent chose a second term for Trump.

    Women favor global death far more strongly than men. Hes been in the 2020 Democratic race for president from the start. Now the Sweet Meteor ODeath is finding a receptive audience: New Hampshire Democrats. The University of Massachusetts-Lowell Center for Public Opinion surveyed Democratic primary voters at the end of January and found nearly two-thirds would rather a meteor hit the earth, extinguishing all human life, than President Trump win re-election on Nov. 3. Thats a serious poll result. Results:

    The Boston Globe ^ | February 7, 2020 | Jeremy C. Fox
    Former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg, building on his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses, continued his surge among likely Democratic New Hampshire presidential primary voters, putting him and Senator Bernie Sanders in a statistical dead heat in a Boston Globe/WBZ-TV/Suffolk University poll released Thursday night. Former vice president Joe Biden, whose campaign is stumbling after a disappointing fourth-place finish in Iowa, saw another modest dip in his numbers. That put him in fourth place behind Senator Elizabeth Warren in Thursdays poll, the fourth of seven the Suffolk University Political Research Center is conducting in the run-up to the...

    Joe Scarborough knows the results of the spiked Des Moines Register poll on the Iowa caucuses. And they apparently show Bernie Sanders with a big lead. So why is Scarborough refusing to disclose them? Yes, the newspaper decided to spike the results because it was concerned about a possible problem with its methodology. But that surely doesn't bind Scarborough. Aren't reporters supposed to report? Let Scarborough release the results, and let people decided for themselves how reliable they are. Scarborough can explain the possible problem with the polling to put the results in context. So why are Joe and other...

    NBC News ^ | 2/3/2020 | Ben Collins
    Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Andrew Yang pushed false conspiracy theories on Twitter over the weekend tied to the canceled Des Moines Register poll, effectively commandeering a trending hashtag to convey the idea that their candidates are more successful than the public has been led to believe. The Des Moines Register poll, a closely watched indicator of the Iowa race, was canceled after at least one interviewer apparently omitted Pete Buttigiegs name from the randomized list of candidates the surveyor read. The political website Axios reported that the reason for the error was that an interviewer increased the...

    CNN and the Des Moines Register have scrapped the planned release of a key poll on Saturday, less than two days before the Iowa caucuses after concerns that an apparent coding error left one of the leading contenders out of at least one survey. The media outlets decided to nix a planned live televised release of the survey after a supporter of former Mayor Pete Buttigieg received a call from the pollsters and Buttigiegs name was not one of the options offered. The New York Times first reported the networks decision to cancel the polls release. The Des Moines...
