    Two new polls, taken before President Donald Trump launched airstrikes on Syria Friday night, spell bad news for Trump and his political party. Both polls released Sunday morning show that Trump's approval rating is still below 40 percent. A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that Trump's 38% average approval rating at 15 months on the job is the lowest on record in polls that date back to the administration of President Harry Truman. The same poll also shows that 56% of Americans disapprove of the President's job performance, while 40% approve. Those who strongly disapprove of Trump outnumber those...
  • Consensus: New Poll Shows No One Really Cares About Trump’s Alleged

    Everyone in the news media is obsessed with the Stormy Daniels-Donald Trump soap opera. The porn star alleges that she had a tryst with the future president in 2006. In 2011, she alleges that someone threatened her to keep quiet. She was paid $130,000 in hush money, along with a non-disclosure agreement, which she appears to have violated. The situation reached fever pitch when FBI agents raided the office and residence of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, yesterday. He’s being investigated for bank fraud and FEC violations relating to the payments to Daniels. Is this a big deal?...

    Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) now has a 10-point lead over Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) in their race to replace the retiring Sen. Bob Corker (R), according to a poll released Thursday. The Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) poll found that 45 percent of respondents would vote for Bredesen if the race were held today, compared to 35 percent for Blackburn, as first reported by The Tennessean. Another 17 percent said they remain unsure. The survey indicates Bredesen, a former Nashville mayor, is gathering a wide coalition of support, with a plurality of self-identified independents, 45 percent, saying they...

    WASHINGTON TIMES ^ | 4/1/2018 | Larry Schweikart
    Anyone thinking President Donald Trump “won” the omnibus bill battle only had to watch his news conference as he prepared to sign it. This was the most resigned and deflated Mr. Trump we’ve seen in more than two years. Deflated, maybe. Not defeated. In a scene straight out of a boxing movie, Mr. Trump got tagged, wiped the blood off his mouth, then grimly waded in. The haymakers are coming: The Democrats just don’t realize it yet. Any defections from Mr. Trump’s base at present would return immediately with the next significant victory. In the past few months, despite hoopla...

    President Donald Trump’s approval rating hit 50 percent in Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll Monday, which puts him ahead of his predecessor at the same point in the presidency. The last time Trump hit 50 percent in the Rasmussen tracking poll was February 27. At the time, he was generally within the 47-50 percent range. The President’s approval rating outpaces that of former President Barack Obama, who sat at 46 percent in Rasmussen’s tracking poll on April 2, 2010.
  • New Poll: The Left is Losing the Argument on Gun Ownership

    Earlier in the week, I highlighted some polling data indicating that support for various gun control measures is on the rise -- and that public attitudes are shifting toward the general notion that guns, not mental health or beefed up security, should be the focus on public policy to prevent mass shootings. Well, let's look at another fresh data point in this larger national debate, via NBC News and the Wall Street Journal's pollster. Are Americans becoming more hostile to the idea that gun ownership makes people safer? They are not: Unlike the numbers I showcased a few days ago,...

    More Americans overall disapprove than approve of President Donald Trump's import tariffs on steel and aluminum, but Republicans back the president, and they believe the U.S. would come out ahead if a trade war were to ensue. A majority of Democrats and a plurality of independents disapprove of the new tariff measures, while two-thirds of Republicans approve.

    updated 2 hours ago Conor Lamb will win Western Pennsylvania's special election race for Congress on Tuesday if there is a surge in Democratic turnout similar to what has been seen in other special elections over the past year, according to a Monmouth University poll out Monday. The Monmouth poll's “Democratic surge” model shows Lamb collecting 51 percent of the vote compared with Saccone's 45 percent, while 1 percent of likely voters would opt for a third-party candidate and 3 percent remain undecided. The poll's margin of error is 5.1 percent. Monmouth said Lamb holds a slim advantage within the...
  • New Poll Shows Conor Lamb Leading Saccone In Race For 18th Congressional District

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – With just days to go before Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional special election, a new poll shows Democrat Conor Lamb leading Republican Rick Saccone. The Emerson College poll shows Lamb leading Saccone 48% to 45%, but it’s worth noting that is within the margin of error. The college says the data was collected between March 1-3 using an online and landline sample of nearly 500 likely voters. The survey shows that this special election has garnered a lot of voting excitement, with 56% saying they are very excited to vote. Lamb is leading 57% to 40% in Allegheny County...

    President Trump’s job approval rating is at 42 percent according to a new Marist poll, the highest it’s been in the poll since he took office more than a year ago. Trump's approval rating rose from the 38 percent he received in the poll last month. And the percentage of Americans who strongly approve of Trump held at 24 percent from last month’s survey, an all-time high for the president.
  • Swing State Polls Look Good for Trump in 2020

    RUSH: I mentioned the polls earlier about swing states and the reelection in 2020. Now, I’m gonna say again that polls to me are irrelevant this far out. They don’t really mean anything. They do, however, impact the way people feel. They can impact people’s moods, attitudes, and in some cases can cause certain people to act in certain ways. But terms having any real meaning, they don’t. A presidential poll today of Donald Trump and any of the other potential Democrats doesn’t mean anything, and let me prove it to you. Here we are on the 8th of March...

Seventy-five percent of attendees now believe America is going in the right direction, compared to just 44 percent of respondents last year. “The conservative movement has found a new leader,” said Jim McLaughlin, who organized the poll.

    American ^ | February 23, 2018 | Brian C. Joondeph
    Watch any cable or network news station or read the newspaper, and you will be told that President Trump is unpopular. That Americans don't like him. The Washington Post proclaims that "Trump is historically unpopular." Predicting big trouble ahead for Republicans, the Post tells readers, "There's never been a president who was as deeply unpopular for as long as he has been at this stage of his presidency." Newsweek goes further with its headline: "Trump's 2018 approval ratings show he's the most unpopular president in history and failing at his job." The Washington Examiner, not a far-left publication but firmly...

    Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate. Nearly a quarter of voters, 23 percent, are undecided. Voters are split almost evenly along party lines. Democratic voters break for their party, 85 percent to 5 percent, while Republicans similarly favor the GOP, 84 percent to 8 percent. Among independent voters, 26 percent would vote for the Democrat, 25 percent for the Republican and nearly half, 49 percent, are undecided. The GOP’s 1-point advantage comes after three months of tracking in which Democrats...

    Jim Messina, a former campaign manager for Barack Obama, apparently isn't one to mince words. During an appearance Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Messina spoke about the irrelevance of public polls so early in an election year, Mediaite reported. Then he underscored the point to host Joe Scarborough. "Joe, you know how I feel about public polls," he said. "I think all public pollsters should be shot.” Messina said there were other, more important yardsticks at this point to determine a candidate's viability. “What you care more about is passion and intensity,” he said. “When I ran President Obama’s campaign,...
