    IBD/TIPP Poll ^ | October 06, 2020 | IBD Staff
    The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, a leading national poll on consumer confidence, revealed dramatic increases in positive sentiment this month, rising from 45.0 to 55.2 (22.7%) overall. This brings the index back into positive territory for the first time in seven months. For the IBD/TIPP indexes, a reading below 50.0 indicates pessimism. “We’ve seen some interesting swings in consumer sentiment throughout the pandemic, but October revealed the biggest gains by far,” said Ed Carson, IBD's news editor. The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index has established a strong track record of foreshadowing the confidence indicators issued later each month by the University...

    Joe Biden's lead over President Donald Trump has narrowed to 2.6 points among likely voters, a new IBD/TIPP 2020 election poll finds. Trump's rise comes despite registered voters seeing Biden as the winner of Tuesday's debate and coming across as more likable by double-digit margins.
  • Autoimmune Experiments Switch Immune Cells From Attacking The Body to Protecting It

    06/26/2020 6:09:48 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 1 replies ^ | 22 JUNE 2020 | PETER COCKERILL & DAVID C. WRAITH, THE CONVERSATION
    For most of us, the immune system works to protect us from bacteria, viruses, and other harmful pathogens. But for people with autoimmune conditions, the body's white blood cells instead perceive other cells and tissues in the body to be a threat and attacks them. While some immune disorders, like allergies, can sometimes be treated, autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS) remain incurable. Our research has shown that you can stop the immune system attacking the nerves – which is what happens in MS. We did this by giving the immune system ever-increasing doses of the same molecule that...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to lead the race for the Democratic nomination, the December IBD/TIPP Poll shows. Biden garnered 26% support, down slightly from 29% in November but the same reading as in October. And in head-to-head polls, only Biden among major Democratic candidates still leads President Trump, who moved ahead of Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, as the Dow Jones industrial average moved to record highs.

    Science Daily ^ | July 3, 2019 | Imperial College London
    The new early-stage research finding comes from a team of scientists led by Imperial College London, who investigated the effectiveness and side effects of three common blood pressure medications: ACE-inhibitors, beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers. The most common treatments for high blood pressure are lifestyle changes and medications. By investigating versions of genes that mimic the effects of these drugs, the team were able to study the drugs' effectiveness -- and their potential side effects. The team, who included researchers from LMU Munich, then studied whether these gene variants -- which cause increased production of these proteins -- were linked...

  • Bill O’Reilly Reveals Megyn Kelly’s “Nickname” at Fox News. She’s NOT Happy.

    (Angry Patriot) – During her tenure at Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly were constantly at each other’s throats — often over her selfish attitude and need to make everything about her. So, it makes perfect sense that O’Reilly revealed that her nickname was “Me-Again” Kelly, via Washington Feed. According to O’Reilly, it was “always about Megyn,” which is not hard to believe. All of the drama surrounding Kelly is coming out in the open after she tore up her contract with Fox News, with some months still remaining on it. Kelly was on a break from Fox News...

    Let's start with a basic fact. Contrary to news reports last week, President Trump is not eliminating funding for Meals on Wheels. He's not even cutting it. How do we know this? Meals on Wheels says so. A statement issued by Meals on Wheels America on Thursday notes that 35% of the revenues at the 5,000 or so local Meals on Wheels programs come via the Older Americans Act Nutrition Program. Trump's budget outline says nothing about this program whatsoever.

    ST. LOUIS, MO ( - If the poll that correctly predicted the outcome of the last three elections is correct this year, a victory for Donald Trump is imminent. The Investors Business Daily and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence poll has been the most accurate poll in recent presidential elections, correctly predicting the 2004, 2008 and 2012 election. In the last IDP/TIPP Presidential Election Tracking Poll before the 2016 election, Donald Trump holds a 2 point lead over Hillary Clinton.

    IBD ^ | November 7, 2016 | IBD
    With one day to go, Donald Trump extended his lead over Hillary Clinton, 43% to 41%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. That comes after a third bombshell from FBI Director James Comey, who announced Sunday he would not indict Clinton for her email scandal. Trump's two-point lead now matches his largest so far during the 20 days of polling. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson gets 6% of the vote, Green Party candidate Jill Stein just 2%. In a two-way matchup that excludes the two third-party candidates, however, Clinton still holds a 43% to 42% lead over Trump, with...

    Donald Trump has moved into the lead over Hillary Clinton, 44% to 43% with two days left before Election Day, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. And the number of states in play is expanding. The GOP and Democratic nominees had been tied for the prior four days. Libertarian Party pick Gary Johnson is at 5% while the Green Party's Jill Stein is at 2%. The readings for all candidates are the same in the unrounded IBD/TIPP poll data. A day earlier, Clinton led by 0.5 point. In a head-to-head matchup excluding third-party candidates, Clinton is ahead by...

    Hillary Clinton's lead has entirely vanished since Friday, with the race now deadlocked at 44% to 44%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson's support held steady 4%, as did Green Party candidate Jill Stein's at 2%. When asked to choose only between Trump and Clinton, voters are also equally divided, with both candidates now at 44%. The unrounded data show Trump with a slight lead in both the four-way and two-way matchups. In the four-way race, Trump gets 44.4%, Hillary 44.0%, Johnson 4.1%. and Stein 2.2%. In the two-way poll, Trump is at 44.2%...

    Hillary Clinton's edge over Donald Trump remained at 1 point – 45% to 44% – in a four-way race as Friday's latest revelations in the email scandal continued to shake the Clinton campaign, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. This continues a three-day slide in the IBD/TIPP Poll for Clinton after FBI Director James Comey announced Friday that he's reinstating the bureau's investigation into Clinton's homebrew email server while she was secretary of state. In just three days, Clinton has largely lost a 4-point lead. But not to third party candidates. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson gets just 4%...

    Investors Business Daily ^ | September 8, 2016 | VICTOR DAVIS HANSON
    In most presidential elections, the two candidates spar over issues. The president campaigns for his party's nominee in hopes of continuing his legacy. Democrats champion liberalism, Republicans conservatism. In numerous press conferences, journalists try to force newsworthy and embarrassing admissions from the two candidates. Not this year. Barack Obama, who less than two years ago dipped to 40% in approval rating, is nowhere to be seen. He seems to know that the more he is absent and quiet, the more the public likes the idea rather than the reality of him as president -- and his approval rating has risen...

    Riding on a string of big victories in the presidential primaries, Donald Trump has not only extended his lead against his GOP rivals, but also he has gained ground against Hillary Clinton, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. ------------------------------------------------ The poll finds that Trump now leads Ted Cruz by 19 points — 48% to 29% — which is more than double his lead last month. At the same time, Hillary’s lead over Trump is now just seven points (47% to 40%), down from 12 points last month. What’s more, 65% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents now pick Trump as either...
