  • US Support for Same-Sex Marriage Soars; Most Catholics Approve

    06/29/2017 7:43:12 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 90 replies
    Public approval for same-sex marriage has skyrocketed in the US, with nearly two-thirds of respondents favoring legal recognition of homosexual unions in a new survey. The Pew Research study found that 62% of Americans favored same-sex marriage, with only 32% opposed. The result represents a stunning change from 2010, when only a minority (42%) supported same-sex marriage—and even from last year, when the figure stood at 55%. Self-identified Catholics were even more likely than the overall sample to favor same-sex unions. Roughly two-thirds of Catholics (67%) and mainline Protestants (68%) supported legal recognition of same-sex unions. Among religious groups, only...

    Most voters don’t trust political polls and tend to think pollsters are out to stop President Trump’s agenda. Just 26% of Likely U.S. Voters say they trust most political polls. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% do not trust most political polls. Nineteen percent (19%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Thirty-seven percent (37%) rate the current polling on political issues and events as worse than it has been in the past. Only 11% say polling is better now. Forty-six percent (46%) think it’s about the same. Just one-out-of-three voters (35%)...

    A majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump's work during his first week in the White House - breaking a record of how long it generally takes the majority of Americans to disapprove of a president. On Saturday, 51 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump, a Gallup poll found. The poll tracks daily approval ratings for Trump by surveying 1,500 Americans. It took just eight days to reach these ratings. It took at least several hundred days for the majority of Americans to disapprove of past presidents.

    When President-elect Donald Trump takes the oath of office Friday, he'll be the most unpopular man to do so in decades, two new polls showed. A majority of Americans - 54% - have an unfavorable opinion of the incoming president, a Tuesday Washington Post/ABC News poll showed. A second survey, conducted by CNN and ORC, reported that 52% of people do not approve of the way the president-elect has been handling the transition. In each poll, just 40% of respondents said they view Trump and his transition team favorably.

    MSNBC had an awkward moment while trying to conduct a post-debate interview Sunday night, as reporter Kristen Welker appeared not to know she was live and told a Hillary Clinton aide what she would be asking her during their segment. She then interrupted the guest, Jen Palmieri, when she heard a delayed prompt from the studio. Ari Melber threw to Welker to speak with Palmieri, a flack for Hillary Clinton, but Welker was in mid-conversation with Palmieri and was telling her she would ask a question about Flint, Michigan, the site of Sunday night’s debate, because of the water crisis...

    I have been listening off and on to the "John & Leah" show tonight on AM 970, starring John Ziegler and Leah Brandon. This Ziegler strikes me as sort of a loose cannon. He spent most of the program tonight talking about why Trump was unelectable and how Trump actually LOST to Hillary in a couple of recent polls. Does anyone know anything about this guy? Is he blowing smoke?

    Veteran pollster John Zogby is continuing to stick to his longstanding prediction that Republican front-runner Donald Trump's run for president will not last. "I'm in a margin-of-error business, so plus or minus a couple of weeks … I do think he'll fizzle out, I really do," Zogby, senior analyst at Zogby Analytics, tells "Newsmax Prime" with J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV. "He's starting to, he's peaked a little bit and I think his numbers are coming down … he'll fizzle out shortly." Zogby said he is not surprised that Trump supporters say if the billionaire developer ends up dropping out,...

    In his weekly presidential report card, pollster John Zogby found that President Obama's legacy was greatly improved by two key Supreme Court decisions, endorsing same sex marriage and Obamacare, and passage of controversial trade agreements. "There have been some bad weeks and some less than stellar ones. This one was the kind of week that most presidents can only dream about." A GOP Congress passed the largest free trade pact with the largest market in the world. "The Supreme Court voted 6-3 to uphold 'state' subsidies under Obamacare." "A combination of major southern states and retailers vowed to stop manufacturing, selling,...

    EVERY talking head in the United States has spent the last week prattling on about Hillary Clinton’s emails.Fair enough. The former Secretary of State violated government rules in an apparent effort to keep her correspondence safe from scrutiny. That’s no small matter. But in the meantime, another politician has come from nowhere to dethrone Jeb Bush as the frontrunner for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. His name’s Scott Walker.A few months ago, Walker was an obscure underdog with little more than an outside chance of becoming the nominee. Now he’s being seriously considered for the most important job on the...

    At Iowa's "Ag Summit" on Saturday, Jeb Bush had an auspicious debut, while Dems skipped town and others struck out. There’s a new player in the game at the Iowa caucuses this season, and the competition has just been elevated. That new player is Jeb Bush, and his debut at Saturday’s Iowa Agriculture Summit in Des Moines could be a game changer — for both Republicans and Democrats. Even though they were invited, Democrats were missing in action at the Summit. Republican hopefuls took full advantage of the opportunity to appeal to Iowa’s core industry, as entrepreneur and President of...

    Nothing makes a diehard eeyore like me happier than a depressing poll, but even I’ve got to call BS on this one. C’mon, Politico.That 71 percent includes 90 percent of Latinos, 78 percent of Democrats, and 64 percent of Republicans — and frankly, I’m surprised the totals for each aren’t higher. Except to the small minority of the population that follows immigration news closely, the phrase “comprehensive immigration reform” is almost totally meaningless. News junkies recognize it as a term of art to describe a compromise on border security and legalization; to everyone else, which is pretty much everyone,...

    In 2009, the gap between the share of Republicans and Democrats who believed in evolution was just 10 percentage points, 54 percent and 64 percent, respectively. Last year, that gap widened to a whopping 24 points because as the percentage of Democrats who believed in evolution inched up to 67 percent, the percentage of Republicans believing so plummeted to 43 percent. Now, more Republicans believe that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time” than believe in evolution. This sad news comes via a survey released this week by the Pew Research...

    The White House insisted Wednesday that President Obama’s credibility had not been damaged by the botched rollout of Obamacare, despite a series of recent polls showing his diminished standing with the American public."I don't think I agree with that conclusion,” White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said of the assertion that fewer Americans trust the president because of broken promises over his signature domestic achievement.However, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 54 percent of respondents disapproved of the president’s job performance, driven mainly by the problem-plagued rollout of Obamacare.Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed said Obamacare was...

    "Trust is like virginity: once you lose it it's hard to get it back." So spoke pollster John Zogby, commenting on his latest poll on President Obama's handling of his office. Quoted by Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner: "Most ominous for Mr. Obama is that 57 percent now disapprove of his job. That is his worst number yet. This includes 57 percent of men and 55 percent of women; 51 percent of moderates, 24 percent of liberals and 24 percent of Democrats; 66 percent of independents and 40 percent of Hispanics. Meanwhile, a separate poll by CNN/ORC International...

    President Obama's poll numbers have hit just about the lowest point of his presidency. They started sinking after the Obamacare website's miserable debut last month. Now, only around 40 percent of Americans think Obama is doing a good job. More thanhalf disapprove of his performance. (A year ago, the numbers were the opposite.) It seems obvious to say that a high approval rating helps a president, while a low approval rating hurts him. But here are five reasons Obama's numbers might not be as troublesome as they sound. He Was Never Popular With Congress Anyway A high approval rating can...

    HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Following the pledge of allegiance, a group of conservative Marylanders take their seats and listen to Delegate Neil Parrott, R-Washington County, who earnestly urges them to vote in the upcoming state elections. “One thing we know is that elections have consequences and what we’re seeing at a national level is that Barack Obama has a total different worldview than we do here in this room,” Parrott said before the group of nearly 60 attendees of a Hagerstown T.E.A. Party meeting. “He wants Obamacare - socialism. This is part of his new America,” Parrott said to the group,...
  • The Tea Party's Unspoken Political, Economic and Financial Ramifications

    Reuters is carrying an editorial today on how the DC "government has failed us – again." Knowing Reuters's record on articles like this, you might wonder why I stopped to read it. It was the title of the article, "The Sanity Caucus," that caught my eye. Surprised by the title, I scanned down, wondering if the article would make the point that the Tea Party folks, despite their methods, had the right ideas: Stop the expansion of the US government by any means possible, at least long enough to make a serious point about a serious issue. This wasn't...
