  • Poll: Almost Half Of White Southerners Feel Like They're Under Attack

    This is something that fell on the backburner, but a bit interesting. A poll showed that a significant amount of white southerners feel they’re under attack. I can see how. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, but the fact remains that Confederate statues, the flag, etc. are all cornerstones of southern culture. It’s part of American history as well. Not one of our best moments, but a part of it nonetheless. Here’s the breakdown of the survey (via The Hill): Nearly half of white American poll respondents living in the South feel like they’re under attack, a new Winthrop...

    Even though most millennials voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. election, about a third supported Donald Trump for president. Now, more than a year later, a new report is shedding light on what motivated them to support the Republican candidate — and how they feel about the job he is doing in the White House. Spoiler alert: The results might surprise you. About 35% of millennials who voted cast a ballot for Trump in 2016, according to the 2017 Millennial Impact Report. (About 51% voted for Hillary Clinton, 12% for a third-party candidate, and 2% didn't vote for...
  • At Least Republicans Are Controlled By Their Voters

    The Post-Journal ^ | November 20, 2017 | The Editors
    Turmoil has been the order of the day among leaders of both the Republican and Democratic parties. Listing all the many concerns of millions of voters who have been loyalists of either party would require a book. But a book by Donna Brazile, formerly chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, makes one difference between the two parties crystal clear. It is that Democrat leaders, who frequently present themselves as the real voice of the people of America, are no such thing. It was made clear more than a year ago that, despite the best efforts of many in the Republican...
  • EX-VP Biden leads Trump by 11 points in potential 2020 matchup: Poll

    Business Recorder ^ | November 16, 2017 | Fawad Maqsood, The Associated Press of Pakistan
    Only 35 percent of voters would choose to reelect Trump in 2020, the Politico/Morning Consult poll shows substantially fewer than the 46 percent who would vote instead for Biden, who has said that he is not closing the door on a third attempt at the presidency in 2020. One in 5 voters are undecided. Biden made the statement that he may challenge Trump in 2020 in an interview with NBC News while promoting his new book, Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose.“I honest-to-God haven’t made up my mind about that,”ť Biden, who is turning 75 later...
  • Trump’s Approval Rating Rises to 46 Percent

    The Epoch Times ^ | November 14, 2017 | Jasper Fakkert
    A daily presidential tracking poll shows that Trump’s approval rating has grown to 46 percent. The ranking, measured by right-leaning Rasmussen reports, is the highest since Oct. 17, when Trump was at 46 percent as well. The increase in Trump’s approval rating comes as the president is wrapping up a 12-day tour in Asia. During his trip, Trump secured wide support for countering North Korea’s nuclear threat. Several countries, including China, Vietnam, the Philippines, South Korea, and Japan, have vowed to help address the crisis. Trump told Indo-Pacific nations gathered at APEC in Vietnam, that the United States will no...

  • Trump's low approval rating masks his support among likely voters

    AOL News ^ | November 8, 2017 | Chris Kahn, Reuters
    President Donald Trump is more popular with likely voters than he is with the general public, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll that underscores why Republican lawmakers have largely stuck with the polarizing president despite his plunging approval ratings. The poll, released on Wednesday, shows he polls better among people who voted in the 2016 presidential election than with the overall U.S. adult population – a group that includes both voters and non-voters. Only about 60 percent of the voting-age public took part in last year’s election. In October, for example, 44 percent of 2016 voters said they approved of Trump’s...
  • Donald Trump Will Get Crushed by Any Democrat in the 2020 Election, Poll Indicates

    Newsweek ^ | November 9, 2017 | Jason Le Miere
    President Donald Trump will get crushed by any Democrat running against him in the 2020 presidential election, a poll released Thursday indicated. Asked whether they would vote for Trump or a hypothetical Democratic candidate in the next election, just 36 percent in the Politico/Morning Consult poll said they would vote to give the president a second term. That compared with 46 percent who indicated they would vote for Trump’s Democratic opponent, whoever that may be. A further 18 percent said they remained undecided.

  • Michelle Obama For President: If 2020 Dem Primaries Were Today, Ex-First Lady Wins, Poll Shows

    The Inquisitr ^ | November 1, 2017 | Bradley Ryder
    If a woman is to finally serve as President of the United States, Michelle Obama has the best chance to make a strong run and win. What is more, according to a new poll, the former first lady would win the Democratic nomination out of a crowded field of possible candidates — even against former Vice President Joe Biden. Michelle Obama for president in 2020 is not confirmed, but according to a Zogby Analytics survey of 682 participants via telephone, Democratic primary voters favor the ex-FLOTUS. Michelle Obama leads with 22 percent among candidates whose names have been floated about...
  • Donald J. Trump And The Slow Arrival Of Buyers’ Remorse (Democrats still scratching their heads)

    The Huffington Post ^ | November 1, 2017 | David Coates and Lauren Tarde
    You might be forgiven for thinking ― given all that has happened since Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton for the U.S. presidency in November 2016 ― that buyers’ remorse would be rampant in contemporary America. But it is not. It is true that Donald J. Trump started his presidency capturing only a minority of the popular vote; and that he is significantly less popular in polls taken today than he was on election day. But very substantial pockets of support remain. They remain among members of his electoral base. They remain among life-long Republicans, not all of whom greeted...

    Has the ground shifted in the biggest election of this off-year with less than two weeks to go? Until this month, Republican candidate Ed Gillespie consistently trailed in polls for the Virginia gubernatorial election to Democrat Ralph Northam. Gillespie scored a one-point edge in a mid-month Monmouth poll, but now shows a commanding eight-point lead in a Hampton University survey:

    Duane Miller realized at the “very last minute” last November that he was going to vote for a candidate he didn’t much like, Donald Trump. He did not even really vote for Trump, to hear him describe it. Instead, he voted against Washington fecklessness and corruption, which he saw as embodied by Hillary Clinton, in his eyes the ultimate establishment candidate, who was doubtlessly going to win anyway, he thought. “I thought there was no way that Trump could beat Hillary, right up till the end,” said Miller. “Right up to the night before.” That was almost a year ago,...
  • Nearly a year after Trump's election, both sides think they're losing

    MSN ^ | October 24, 2017 | David Lauter, Tribune Washington Bureau
    Nearly a year after the election of a president who promised Americans would win so much they would grow "tired of winning," a funny thing has happened in American politics — both sides think they're losing. That lose-lose mood, which is on display daily on Capitol Hill, is strongly reinforced by a study of public opinion released Tuesday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. More than 6 in 10 Americans say they believe their side is losing more than it's winning on the issues that matter most; only about 1 in 4 think their side is mostly winning. That attitude...

    FairVote, a nonpartisan think tank that analyzes elections and proposes electoral reforms, has issued its new Monopoly Politics 2018 report on U.S. House elections. Using its proven model, the organization projects that Republicans are likely to maintain a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives absent an historic partisan wave in 2018. FairVote’s model has missed only one high-confidence projection in more than a 1,000 congressional races in the 2012, 2014 and 2016 cycles. This year we have made high-confidence projections in 374 of 435 U.S. House races, including 208 sure wins for Republicans and 166 for Democrats. That means...

    Republican Roy Moore leads Democrat Doug Jones by 11 percentage points in a new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research. The survey of 3,000 likely Alabama voters finds Moore receiving 51% support to 40% for Jones. Nine percent remain undecided in the exclusive poll conducted on Monday. "The value of a poll depends on a range of circumstances. A number of recent polls have shown us with a strong lead, but at the end of the day, the one poll that matters above all others is taken on Election Day," Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead said....
  • Trump Support Underrated in Surveys, says Ex-Clinton Pollster

    Newsmax ^ | October 12, 2017 | James Morrison
    A top Democrat pollster warned Thursday that surveys showing President Donald Trump with low approval ratings make the same mistakes as those last year that predicted a massive victory for Hillary Clinton. "The polls that failed to detect the full strength of President Trump on Election Day continue to underestimate the president's support for the job he is doing, paying way too much attention to the Twitter wars and ignoring the public support for many of the actions he is undertaking," wrote Mark Penn, a pollster for former President Bill Clinton and chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

    Only yesterday we looked at a new law in California which could impose fines or even jail time for healthcare workers who refuse to refer to transgender patients using the pronouns which are opposite of their actual gender. At the time I wondered if that could possibly withstand a legal challenge, but that may not be their biggest problem. A new poll from the Cato Institute and YouGov examines a number of different speech issues in our country, and among others it finds that folks are not at all in favor of punishing people for refusing to indulge in unscientific...

    If you are upset about President Donald Trump's position on NFL players who kneel during the national anthem -- an opinion he colorfully expressed in a speech in Alabama and in a series of follow-up tweets -- take a deep breath and listen. There's good reason to believe that public opinion is on his side. Understanding this doesn't mean that you are wrong or that your feelings are not valid; it just means that the President has again found a winning cultural issue with which to solidify his standing in Middle America. Last September, Reuters conducted a survey in the...
  • Poll: More GOP Voters See Themselves As ‘Trump Supporters’ Rather Than Republicans

    The Daily Caller ^ | September 22, 2017 | Liam Clancy
    An NBC/WSJ poll released Thursday reveals that more Republican voters consider themselves a “supporter of Donald Trump” rather than a “supporter of the Republican Party.” A whopping 58 percent of respondents indicated they considered themselves Trump supporters, while only 38 percent indicated they considered themselves supporters of the Republican party. 2 percent see themselves as both, while 1 percent said they were neither. The poll further reveals a split within the Republican party, as Trump supporters hold a far less positive opinions of many GOP politicians. For example, only 13 percent of Trump supporters view Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell...

    A primary win by "Ray" Moore would open Alabama's U.S. Senate seat to Democrats, President Donald Trump told radio-hosts "Rick and Bubba" this morning. Trump called the popular syndicated radio show on Monday, just days after appearing at a Huntsville, Alabama rally for Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange. "Luther Strange is going to be a great Senator," Trump said. "He loves Alabama, he loves the state and he loves the country. He will absolutely win against the Democrat. Ray will have a hard time. If Luther wins, the Democrats will hardly fight. If Ray wins (Democrats) will pour in $30...
