    It’s not just crazy places like the University of California at Berkeley where surprisingly large numbers of U.S. college students believe that violence and shouting are acceptable methods to prevent people from saying things. Fifty-one percent of all U.S. college students believe shouting is an acceptable response to free speech, and one in five (19 percent) believe violence is an acceptable response, according to results from a national survey of 1,500 students in 49 states and DC. Fifty-three percent of survey respondents said colleges should “create a positive learning environment for all students by prohibiting certain speech or expression of...

    YouGov, Rasmussen, and NBC all put him at 43 percent now and Monmouth has him just six points underwater at 42/48. What’s driving it? A good job by him and the feds on handling hurricanes, almost certainly Sixty-four percent told CNN that they approve of how the administration has handled the recent storms, including 66 percent of independents. Democrats were split evenly at 44 percent, which is all but unheard of on anything Trump-related. Morning Consult has also picked up an uptick among indies Wisely, he’s going to try to keep the good nonpartisan vibes going by visiting Puerto Rico...

    While still historically low, President Donald Trump's approval rating is on the upswing, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll. After a lowest-ever showing of 39% in last month's poll, the most recent survey finds his overall approval rating up at 43%. Among Republicans, 80% gave their approval, up from 73% in the previous poll. Among Democrats 40% approve of his performance, up from 35% last month. The improvement likely has to do with Trump's recent signals he is willing to compromise with Democrats on a successor program to DACA, the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "Trump's post-Charlottesville...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | September 18, 2017 | Staff
    Voters are following the actions of the so-called “antifa” protesters and aren’t impressed with what they see. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 24% of Likely U.S. Voters have a favorable opinion of the antifa protesters, with eight percent (8%) who view them Very Favorably. Fifty-eight percent (58%) share an unfavorable opinion of these protesters, including 40% who have a Very Unfavorable one. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Fifty percent (50%) see the antifa protesters as primarily troublemakers looking to cause a public disturbance. Thirty percent (30%)...

    Nearly half of Russian citizens approve of 1939's Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, a Levada Center poll released on Wednesday has found. Thirteen percent of Levada’s respondents said they “definitely approve” of the pact, while 32 percent they “somewhat approve” of it. A combined 17 percent said they “definitely” or “somewhat” disapprove of the treaty that the USSR and Nazi Germany signed on Aug. 23, 1939. Two-fifths of the 1,600 people polled said they had “heard of” the pact and “think that it happened in real life,” the survey revealed. One-third said they’ve never heard of...

    Despite their failure to advance President Trump’s agenda, congressional Republicans aren’t happy about his outreach to Democrats in the House and Senate, but most voters think it’s a great idea. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters say it is good for the country if Trump works with congressional Democrats to advance his agenda. Just 13% think the bipartisan cooperation is bad for the country, while 21% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Only 19% believe the president should continue to rely on congressional Republicans to pass his...
  • Is Angela Merkel's huge lead in German pre-election polls accurate?

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 09.12.2017 | Jefferson Chase
    The German election has two faces. Most observers consider the race at the top over, with conservative Chancellor Angela Merkel running around 15 percent ahead of her Social Democratic (SPD) rival Martin Schulz. Yet skepticism remains about the accuracy of pre-election opinion surveys. After all, the overwhelming majority of pollsters failed to predict victories for the pro-Brexit camp in the UK and Donald Trump in the US. The methodologies used by German pollsters range from the telephone interviews employed by established organizations like Infratest dimap and Forsa, which have standing contracts with major news outlets, and online surveys used by...
  • Poll’s Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018

    You dance with the one who brung you to the dance.”The wisdom of that old political adage might seem outdated in this age of expensive consultants, focus groups with instantaneous tracking of reactions, and micro-targeting of voters.  But the McLaughlin & Associates poll released this week reinforces the wisdom of that adage for any Republican who wants to avoid defeat in the 2018 primary season and in the general election that follows.  The message of that McLaughlin poll could not be clearer or simpler for Republicans as they choose in the coming weeks between the agenda of President Trump and...
  • Why GOP leaders should be scared (Trump has 98% approval with Republicans who voted for him)

    09/08/2017 6:34:42 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 54 replies
    Only one poll number to remember this week: WSJ/NBC finds that Trump has 98% approval with Republicans who voted for him in both the primary and the general. Be smart: Don't underestimate Trump's power to do whatever the hell he wants and still keep his base voters. If they stayed with him through Charlottesville and "Access Hollywood," they're not going anywhere over a Beltway deal. Trump has an almost magical hold on his voters. He makes regular deposits in the Bank of Base, and has a nice balance.

    The Gainesville Sun ^ | September 5, 2017 | Russell Mercer, Special to the Sun
    I am shaking with frustration at the lack of a coherent, national strategy to defeat Donald Trump. I’m surrounded by liberal and progressive echo chambers that are deaf to the reality that we’re facing. If you think Trump is seconds away from impeachment or implosion, let me ask you this: When is the last time you watched Fox News? Try Sean Hannity or Fox & Friends, not Shepard Smith or Chris Wallace. Or when is the last time you looked at Breitbart News? How about the last time you watched Trump or somebody from his administration speaking more than five...

    Musings upon a sultry August. Earlier this week, I spoke to a local Republican women’s group, and one topic of conversation which came up is something often discussed in this space; namely, the Left’s tone-deaf insistence on cultural aggression as a form of power politics. In my speech I described the effect of this thusly: it makes little difference what Trump’s approval rating is, because the Democrats’ rating is a lot lower. That might be hard to poll, because the Democrat Party might poll better than Trump and at the moment none of the potential candidates of that party are...
  • Donald Trump’s Base Gives Zero F*&#s That Steve Bannon Is Gone

    08/23/2017 3:44:50 PM PDT · by Rockitz · 69 replies ^ | 23 August 2017 | Asawin Suebsaeng and Gideon Resnick
    Steve Bannon, the figure most frequently touted as the Machiavellian mastermind behind President Donald Trump’s connection with his populist base, left the White House late last week. But his absence has shown no signs of hampering the support Trump enjoys among those core supporters. All indication in the past five days has been that those voters like Trump for Trump and it makes little to no difference who stands beside him inside the White House. Rhetorically speaking, the president’s marathon address in Phoenix yesterday—in which he bashed the media, coyly suggested he’d pardon Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and threatened...

    NBC News ^ | August 22, 2017 | Steve Kornacki
    Diagnosing the state of President Donald Trump’s political health should be a simple matter. The story that the traditional metrics tell is straightforward. On a good day for him, Trump’s approval rating might crack 40 percent. But a more typical day lately will put him in the mid- to high-30s, while the worst day, so far, had him plunging to 33 percent. Since his inauguration, Trump’s approval in Gallup’s daily tracker has never exceeded 46 percent, and he only hit that number once — during his first week on the job. By any historical standard, these numbers are politically catastrophic....
  • Trump's favorable ratings in the Rust Belt are basically the same as on Election Day

    A new poll in Rust Belt states over the weekend had some stark news for President Donald Trump: His job approval was under 40%. Only about a quarter said they were proud of him. Broad majorities said they were embarrassed. But his favorable ratings? They are basically the same as what they were on Election Day. The new numbers from a NBC/Marist survey show that the President's favorable numbers look very, very similar to where they were almost 10 months ago when he was elected.....

    Voters tend to agree with President Trump’s defense of historical statues, and few think getting rid of Confederate monuments will lessen racial tensions in America. Despite widespread media condemnation of the president’s response following the recent incident in Charlottesville, Virginia, 50% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with Trump’s Twitter tweet that it is “sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.” The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 37% disagree, while 12% are undecided.

    A new poll shows former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore with a commanding lead over Luther Strange, the Washington establishment backed candidate, heading into the GOP primary runoff for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat left open this year. The poll from JMC Analytics provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release shows Moore with 51 percent, a majority, supporting him, while Strange trails nearly 20 points behind with just 32 percent—and 17 percent are undecided. Moore’s commanding lead comes after he outperformed polls to finish around 39 percent in a multi-way primary this past Tuesday. Strange finished...
