    A strong majority of U.S. adults believe religion is losing its influence in public life, a new Pew Research Center survey found. Overall, 80 percent of U.S. adults say religion’s role in American life is shrinking, “a percentage that’s as high as it’s ever been,” according to the poll report. Nearly half (49 percent) say the decline of religious influence in public life is a “bad thing.” Eight percent say religious influence is “growing and this is good.” Only 6 percent say religious influence is “growing and this is bad,” and 13 percent say religious influence is “shrinking and this...

    Former President Donald Trump is trouncing President Joe Biden in Maine, a Pan Atlantic Research survey found. Maine is different than the vast majority of states in awarding electoral votes, utilizing the congressional district method. Maine has two congressional districts and awards electoral votes to the popular winner across the state. However, it also awards electoral college votes to the popular vote winner in each district. Overall, the state has four electoral votes up for grabs, but it could, hypothetically, result in split electoral votes, given the way the state does this. The Pan Atlantic Research survey found Trump leading...

    President Biden is narrowly leading former President Trump by 4 points in a new survey of young voters — a key demographic Biden carried in 2020.

The survey noted that 70 percent of respondents said they were definitely planning or likely going to vote, while 30 percent said they were unlikely or not planning on voting. It is the latest of numerous polls showing a close race between Biden and...

    Former President Trump is narrowly leading President Biden in a hypothetical 2024 general election match-up among Michigan voters, according to a new poll. The Fox News survey, released Wednesday, shows Trump leading Biden 47 percent to 45 percent in a head-to-head hypothetical rematch. Trump’s lead grows when respondents are asked to select between a larger array of candidates, a group that includes independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Cornel West, as well as Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

    Voters appear convinced Trump will reclaim the White House in November if he faces his successor in a rematch.A new YouGov survey shows that President Joe Biden would lose by a slim margin in a hypothetical rematch against former President Donald Trump if the presidential election were held today.

But if the race were between President Biden and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, the president would win 39-38 percent.As for who respondents...

His ratings are even worse among independent voters, as 62 percent disapprove of him compared to 35 percent who approve. Further, one in five — 22 percent — of Democrats disapprove of Biden’s job performance.

    The profound disconnect between the attitudes shared by the ‘top’ 1% elites in American society and the rest of the population is laid bare by the results of an illuminating new poll. Nearly six in 10 elite members believe there is too much individual freedom in America, more than two-thirds favor rationing of food and energy to combat climate change, somewhere between a half and two-thirds favor banning things like SUVs, gas stoves, air conditioning and non-essential air travel, while two-thirds believe teachers should decide what children are taught. Meanwhile, 70% of those polled trust Government to “do the right...

Sticky-fingered customers have swiped detergent, coffee, and other sundries from 93% of supermarkets in the five boroughs this year, members of the National Supermarkets Association reported in a September survey, whose results were shared with The Post. In all, 60% said their stores are burglarized seven days a week.

    Former President Trump widened his lead against President Biden by four points in a hypothetical 2024 presidential match-up, according to a new poll. The Emerson College Polling survey, released Wednesday, shows Trump’ holding on to his 47 percent support, while Biden’s fell from 45 to 43 percent. About 10 percent of voters in the poll were undecided. The survey also found that if a third-party candidate were added to the hypothetical situation — such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cornel West or Jill Stein — support for both Trump and Biden fell and the amount of undecided voters increased.

    Nearly half of Americans opine in a recent survey that they would avoid a store — any store, apparently — that doesn’t have a drive-thru. The finding comes from Dutch Bros, a beloved drive-thru coffee chain based in Oregon. The Bros commissioned a random survey of 2,000 Americans in July by the market researcher OnePoll. Americans love a drive-thru, and the pandemic seems to have sweetened their taste for takeout. Much of the nation migrated to pickup and delivery in the peak months of COVID-19, and surveys suggest the preference endures. The Dutch Bros poll found that customers favor the...

    Over a third of the population of the UK are not aware that so-called “transgender women” are in fact biological males, as campaigners accuse the LGBT movement and the legacy media of adopting “intentionally” confusing lingo to muddy the debate around transgenderism. A survey conducted by the policy analysis firm Murray Blackburn Mackenzie (MBM) found that 35 per cent of Britons incorrectly believe a “transgender woman” was someone who was born as a biological woman or were unclear about what the term meant. The poll went on to find that there was even more confusion over the term “trans woman”,...

    Asurge in “quiet gun owners,” much like the so-called “silent majority” in political circles, is leading firearms analysts to believe that far more Americans own weapons than the accepted 30% cited in polls. At the highest end, it’s possible that up to 60% of Americans own guns, especially with the pandemic-era rise in gun buying among women and minorities, especially in suburban and urban areas. At the lowest end, it’s likely that at least 40% of Americans own guns, according to a groundbreaking study of those who lie to pollsters about firearms. The study from Rutgers University's New Jersey Gun...

    Academic researchers condemned students’ irreverent and offensive responses to an LGBTQ survey, claiming the pushback indicates "fascist ideologues" are "living ‘inside the house’ of engineering and computer science." In an article for the Bulletin of Applied Transgender Studies, academics from Oregon State University wrote about their shock at receiving sarcasm and mockery in response to their research into undergraduate LGBTQ students studying in STEM fields. The team claimed 50 of 349 responses to their questionnaire on the topic contained "slurs, hate speech, or direct targeting of the research team." Labeling them "malicious respondents," they adapted their project to examine how...

    Almost half of millennials believe using the incorrect pronouns for a transgender person should be considered a criminal offense. A survey, conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies for Newsweek suggested that among those aged between 25-34, 44 percent were in favor of the idea while just 31 percent disagreed. The remaining 25 percent of those responding to the survey either expressed no clear opinion or simply stated that they didn't know. Similar sentiments were found among those aged 35-44. In that group, 38 percent appeared to be in favor of criminalizing misgendering someone while 35 percent were against. About one...

    I’ll first repeat the question in the headline: Are the results of a recent Gallup survey showing the biggest swing to social conservatism in nearly a decade shocking, inevitable, or somewhere in the middle?Whatever one calls it, it’s a major development — particularly with the 2024 election looming ever closer.Before we dig into the details of the survey, let’s revisit a football field metaphor I’ve long used to illustrate the U.S. political landscape. The largest portion of the field — say, between the 30-yard lines, for illustrative purposes — is comprised of decent, reasonable people, regardless of political affiliation. The...
