  • Could ‘Secret’ Trump Voters Be His Key to Success in 2020?

    Trump voters who kept silent about their support for him outnumbered those who did the same for Hillary Clinton by a 2-to-1 margin. Nearly every poll predicted Hillary Clinton would defeat Donald Trump on Election Day 2016. Trump proved all those polls wrong, thanks in part to thousands of “secret” voters who silently supported his campaign. These aren’t the folks attending his rallies or wearing the red “Make America Great Again” hats. But they supported Trump nonetheless, and they could be invaluable to his reelection efforts in 2020. Given how divisive Trump remains, the same effect could repeat itself in...

    Professional pollsters say the old way of conducting surveys is fading fast, but new methods might not be trusted and ready for next year. TORONTO — When veteran pollster Scott Keeter appeared at a recent gathering of industry professionals, he began his presentation with a somber caveat about the methods at the center of his life’s work. Telephone polling — for decades the backbone of efforts to measure public opinion and the subject of his new study — are in “wheezing condition,” Keeter told a roomful of colleagues. And experiments to prolong their use are akin to putting on “a...

    The Liberal Australian government pulls out a surprise win Down Under!! WTF!? Australia Election Results: Prime Minister Scott Morrison Seizes a Stunning Win. Scott Morrison, Australia’s conservative prime minister, scored a surprise victory in federal elections on Saturday, propelled by a populist wave — the “quiet Australians,” he termed it — resembling the force that has upended politics in the United States, Britain and beyond.The win stunned Australian election analysts — polls had pointed to a loss for Mr. Morrison’s coalition for months. But in the end, the prime minister confounded expectations suggesting that the country was ready for a...

    It’s the second poll in three days to show Trump trailing Biden by 11 points, which is mega-landslide territory by the standards of presidential elections. But there are two differences between Wednesday’s poll and today’s. Wednesday’s was a poll of Pennsylvania. Today’s is a poll of the entire country. And Wednesday’s poll came from Quinnipiac. Today’s comes from … Fox News.Have we had any presidential tweets yet accusing Fox of being “fake news”? If anything’s going to do it, this will.It’s actually not the head-to-head number with Biden that’s most ominous for Trump here. Biden also performs best in...

    The events in the above headline are not unrelated. Once the literally “no news” two-year news cycle of Trump-Russia collusion ended with the thump of the Mueller report finding no collusion and not recommending any obstruction of justice charges, it turns out Americans are OK with President Trump. More than OK. The Zogby Poll has Trump’s job approval at 51%, 3 points above Obama’s in the same poll at the same point in his first term. Again, it cannot be said enough, this is after two years of media hyperventilating over something that did not happen. Maybe more interesting: A...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) has expanded his comfortable lead over the 2020 Democratic primary field since his presidential campaign announcement last month, according to a new poll. The Reuters/Ipsos survey released Wednesday found that Biden's support among Democratic voters has increased 5 percentage points, up to 29 percent. He now leads his only close challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), by 16 points in the poll. Sanders, at 13 percent, is the only other candidate to register more than 6 percent support among Democratic voters.

    I know that everyone is going to see the headline of the latest Zogby Analytics poll of President Trump’s approval ratings and think “outlier.” And perhaps that will prove to be the case, but their numbers still definitely have a lot of good news for the Trump administration and their background hints that this could be real. First, let’s get to the toplines. They’ve got the President above water at 51/48, largely based on confidence in the economy among likely voters. A new Zogby Poll® of 852 likely voters nationwide in the U.S., conducted from 5/2/19-5/9/19, with a margin of...

    The latest polling of six key battleground states shows President Trump holding on to his working-class base against former Vice President Joe Biden. After Biden announced his presidential bid, WPA Intelligence conducted a poll of Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Texas, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and found Trump leading overall in those six states by a margin of 46 to 44 percent, reports the Washington Examiner. In the individual states, Trump leads in four: Wisconsin (46 to 42 percent), Florida (48 to 44 percent), Iowa (49 to 44 percent), and Texas (49 to 42 percent). In Pennsylvania, Trump is down only by a...

    On Friday he touched 45.1 percent in the RCP poll of polls. Today he’s up a tick to 45.3. The last time he had seen 45 percent in RCP was February 21, 2017.It’s remarkable, and maybe not coincidental, that he’s hitting new heights in approval at a moment when House Democrats are closer to impeaching him than they’ve ever been. The past month has been consumed with chatter about the Mueller report’s evidence of obstruction of justice, about Bill Barr misleading Congress by concealing Mueller’s concerns about his summary, and about a so-called “constitutional crisis” triggered by the White...

    Joe Biden holds a 30-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic presidential field, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill, further signaling that the former vice president is cementing his place as the primary contest’s front-runner.

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) places third with just 9 percent, the poll found.

  • Morning Consult/Politico Poll Showing Biden +8 Over Trump Is Suspect, Just Look At Who Responded

    The poll released yesterday by Morning Consult/Politico shows former Vice President Joe Biden with an 8 point lead over Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. To many that is shocking because the president’s approval rating and numbers have been quite high at this point in his presidency, even higher than Barack Obamas during the first 2 years. However, if you dig below the surface of the polling data, the reason for this anomoly becomes starkly clear. The poll shows this big of a lead because most polled were Democrats. See the data below taken from the Morning Consult polling...

A new Morning Consult/Politico poll conducted April 19-21 among 1,992 registered voters found Biden leading the president by 8 percentage points in a hypothetical matchup, 42 percent to 34 percent. Biden has a significant edge over Trump among women (17 points), millennials...

After someone in her entourage apparently forgot to lock up the LSD pantry, Cher went on the attack, but her target wasn’t President Donald Trump – instead, she went after The Commie and his desire to give the Boston Bombers and other terrorists and felons their voting rights...

    Pollster Dritan Nesho said in an interview that aired Friday on Hill.TV's "What America's Thinking" that there is a shift in independent voters' views of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. "Who you see shifting in terms of their opinions are independents," Nesho, the CEO of HarrisX, told host Jamal Simmons on Wednesday. "Republicans have largely been consistent in their view of the investigation, considering it to be biased or in many cases, baseless," he continued. "Democrats have been very consistent in their view of the investigation, considering it to be absolutely necessary and believing that there was evidence of...
