  • Crybaby Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Blames Unpopularity on Fox News, Breitbart

    03/30/2019 2:31:20 AM PDT · by a little elbow grease · 51 replies ^ | 3/29/19 | John Nolte
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has entered week two of her crybaby meltdown over disastrous poll numbers and now she’s blaming Fox News and Breitbart News for her unpopularity. Quinnipiac is one of the most unreliable left-wing pollsters out there (not named Marist or CNN), so when the Q-poll has bad news for America’s Socialist “It Girl,” it is worth taking notice. Quinnipiac found Ocasio-Crazy’s national favorability rating sits at a pathetic 23 percent; her unfavorable is 36 percent, which means she is upside down by double digits — 13 whole points. But here is sweetest part of the song …...
  • Now that Dems have taken over House, most Americans think country heading in the wrong direction

    The National Sentinel ^ | 1/28/19 | Jon Dougherty
    A newly released NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll reveals that a sizeable majority of Americans now feel like the country is headed in the wrong direction. According to the survey, “six-in-10 Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, and nearly 70 percent of them have negative opinions on the state of the nation today,” NBC News reported. Some of the terms used to describe the state of the nation were “wrong track,” “disarray,” “turmoil,” “polarized,” “concerned,” “shambles” and “declining.” “Times are grim,” said Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who conducted the survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff. “The...

    Though just one-in-three voters have a favorable opinion of freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, if she were old enough to run for president in 2020, she’d give President Trump a run for his money. [...] The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on January 10 and 13, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
  • Chuck Todd Giddy Over Dems ‘Embracing’ Liberal Label

    01/14/2019 3:13:59 PM PST · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | January 14, 2019 | Kyle Drennen
    On Sunday’s Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd eagerly touted the latest Gallup poll showing 51% of Democrats and 26% of Americans overall identifying themselves as “liberal.” He excitedly told viewers that “Democrats are embracing the label” and that it was “no longer a dirty word” in politics. “Not long ago, Republicans loved calling Democrats liberal. They didn’t mean it as a compliment. And for a while, it was effective. Today, Democrats are embracing the label,” Todd proclaimed as he teased the upcoming segment. Minutes later, during the show’s Data Download segment, the NBC moderator hyped the new Gallup survey...
  • Manafort filing reveals alleged campaign communications with Russian operative

    CBS News ^ | January 8, 2019 | Grace Segers
    Attorneys for Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign chairman, submitted a poorly redacted filing on Tuesday revealing that Manafort shared polling data with a Russian operative during the campaign. Special counsel Robert Mueller submitted a filing in November accusing Manafort of breaching his plea agreement with the special counsel's office by lying to federal investigators. The special counsel said in a memo describing Manafort's alleged wrongdoing in December that Manafort's lies to federal investigators were not simply "memory lapses." According to that memo, Manafort lied about several things in breach of his plea deal, including his contact with Konstantin Kilimnik, who...
  • Most Americans want action on climate change. Republicans are the exception: Poll

    CNBC ^ | December 17, 2018 | by John Harwood (D-NBC)
    Americans have reached consensus on the need to act in response to climate change with one conspicuous exception: Republicans. A new NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll identifies that sharp break in the evolving pattern of public opinion as scientists have amplified their warnings of rising global temperatures and linked them to a range of natural disasters. Overall, 66 percent of Americans now say they've seen enough evidence to justify action, up from 51 percent two decades ago. That figure incorporates 85 percent of Democrats, 79 percent of independents, 71 percent of women, 61 percent of men and strong majorities...
  • 2018 polling recapitulates the pattern of 2016: Dem triumph predicted (except by Rasmussen)

    American Thinker ^ | November 6, 2018 | Jared Peterson
    As in 2016, the divergence between Rasmussen and all the other polling outfits is striking: Rasmussen's last pre-election poll published Monday has an astonishing +1 advantage for Republicans on the generic congressional ballot (46-45). If Rasmussen's results are a remotely accurate prediction of today's outcome, it would be time to hide the razor blades and other sharp instruments in liberal households, because the disproportionate concentration of Democratic voters in urban centers means that normally Democrats must be up around +7 on the generic congressional ballot to win the House even narrowly.
  • We Gave Four Good Pollsters the Same Raw Data. They Had Four Different Results.

    NY Times ^ | SEPT. 20, 2016 | NATE COHN
    You’ve heard of the “margin of error” in polling. Just about every article on a new poll dutifully notes that the margin of error due to sampling is plus or minus three or four percentage points. But in truth, the “margin of sampling error” – basically, the chance that polling different people would have produced a different result – doesn't even come close to capturing the potential for error in surveys. Polling results rely as much on the judgments of pollsters as on the science of survey methodology. Two good pollsters, both looking at the same underlying data, could come...
  • ABC Anchor: ‘Trump Is So Unpopular’, ‘Why Is This Not a Blowout?'

    With just two days to go until the polls closed on the midterm elections, Republicans were working hard to get out their base and liberal media were working hard to get out the Democratic Party’s base. During the Sunday edition of ABC’s Good Morning America, they touted President Trump’s job approval rating slipping to 40 percent. Despite that good news to them, co-anchor Dan Harris was seemingly dismayed as he turned to Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos, asking: “why is this not a blowout?” Stephanopoulos gave Harris a couple of reasons for why Republicans were still in the game this close...

    Three days before the election in 2016 every major pollster in the nation predicted Hillary Clinton would be the next President of the United States. Three days before the election in 2016 President Trump was at that time as risky a bet for conservatives & Republicans as he was for working class Democrats. They had all been let down by an establishment system that claimed to put them first but had seldom delivered in the previous number of years. Three days before the election in 2016 nearly every major media pundit believed the never-Trump split in the Republican Party would...

    Portland Press Herald October 25, 2018 Data company predicts Brakey will win U.S. Senate seat – but makes a King-sized mistake The firm projects winners based on Google searches for candidates. A global data company is trying to make a splash with a study that predicts the outcome of next month’s U.S. Senate elections based on Google searches for each candidate’s name. When it comes to Maine’s Senate race, the marketing data firm, SEMrush, makes a bold prediction: that Republican Eric Brakey will win, with 54 percent of the vote. But SEMrush forgot something important: the incumbent, Sen. Angus King....

    The Hill ^ | October 9, 2018
    Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) holds a slim but statistically insignificant lead over Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) in the Nevada Senate race with a month left until Election Day, a poll released Tuesday found. An NBC News/Marist poll shows Heller leading 46-44 percent among likely voters. The difference falls within the poll's margin of error of 5.5 points. Heller is considered one of the most vulnerable Republican senators up for reelection next month. The poll found that independents favor Heller, 42-39 percent. The incumbent is also the preferred candidate among likely male voters by a 16-point margin. Rosen holds an 11-point...
