    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...
  • Former Obama campaign manager says 'all public pollsters should be shot'

    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,...

    Despite all of this bad news President Trump holds a 48% approval rating today in the Rasmussen daily tracking. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove. The latest figures include 34% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8. President Trump has a stronger approval rating today than media darling Barack Obama did back in 2010 on this same day. Back on February 7,...

    Republicans are feeling better about their prospects in the midterm elections, buoyed by recent polls that show their numbers improving. An ebullient President Trump touted the shift in public sentiment reflected in recent polls during a joint Senate-House Republican retreat in West Virginia this week. “I just looked at some numbers, you’ve even done better than you thought,” Trump told lawmakers, citing poll numbers he discussed Thursday with National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Steve Stivers (R-Ohio).

    “There is no political opposition in Russia. Parties like the Liberal Democratic Party and the Communist Party are, in effect, sub-departments of United Russia, the ruling party. There is only one power vertical and everyone in politics is in it: some as a back-up plan, just in case, some because they expect preferential treatment. I don’t call myself an opposition. I am just a person of common sense. No one appointed me to my post, I was chosen by the majority in competitive elections. That is why I have more scope to act than government-backed officials. But where I can’t...

    Nearly half the Russian public currently want the operation conducted by the country’s Air Force in Syria wrapped up, with only a third of respondents saying that the strikes on terrorists ought to be continued, an independent pollster reports. According to public opinion research conducted by the Levada Center--49 per cent of Russians think that the government should end the counter-terrorist operation that the Russian Air Force is conducting in Syria. 30 per cent of respondents said that they support the continuation of the strikes and 22 per cent said they did not have a solid opinion on the issue....

    On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to reach out directly to the American people, informing them about a new Rasmussen poll released Friday showing his approval rating jumped to 49 percent: “Rasmussen just announced that my approval rating jumped to 49%, a far better number than I had in winning the Election, and higher than certain 'sacred cows.'” The poll shows Trump going from a 45 percent approval rating on Feb. 1 to 49 percent. This is especially significant because former President Barack Obama had a 50 percent approval rating in the same poll at the same...

    Monmouth University is out with a fresh poll that is likely to cause heartburn among Democrats who may already be anxious about how well President Trump's State of the Union Address was received among the vast majority of viewers, including roughly 70 percent of political independents.  We'll dive into the new survey's findings below, but here's a key top line result that will boost Republican morale.  We've seen this pattern developing in other polling, and the trend is now undeniable.  Tax reform is becoming popular:  NATIONAL POLL: Support for #TaxReform plan increases 44% approve (26% in Dec)44% disapprove (47% in...
  • CNN poll grudgingly admits most viewers liked Trump’s SOTU speech

    The web is drowning in reactions to the State of the Union speech at the moment, so there’s no need for a lengthy analysis here. What may be far more interesting is the reaction of the media, not so much to the speech itself, but how it was received. CNN conducted an instant reaction poll among viewers who had previously indicated that they planned to watch and agreed to be contacted afterward and share their opinions. Rather than dancing around the bottom line, let’s just start with the numbers up front. Given options of Very Positive, Somewhat Positive or...

    They scowled as President Trump touted soaring jobs numbers, sat stone-faced when he honored veterans, and one even walked out after becoming triggered by a patriotic chant. Democrats at President Trump's first State of the Union, after a year of partisan rancor, showed they were in no mood to accept his call for bipartisanship. "Why are @TheDemocrats not applauding job growth, higher wages and the drop in Latino and African-American unemployment?" pollster Frank Luntz asked in a tweet. "I thought economic success is good for everyone regardless of party." Rep. Luis Gutierrez walked out after chants of "USA, USA!" erupted...

    You already knew that both parties are trading hypocritical barbs over the current 'Schumer Shutdown,' but this clip from the archives is really quite special and simply too delicious not to share immediately.  Back when Republicans pushed a flawed shutdown strategy over Obamacare in 2013, a certain Senator from New York pronounced himself aghast.  The GOP's disgraceful 'hostage taking' was nothing short of "governmental chaos," he said during an ABC News appearance.  His own party would never go to such radical extremes, even over an issue in which they were deeply emotionally invested, he assured viewers.  Guess which issue he...

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny said Thursday that police were raiding his campaign headquarters in Saint Petersburg as he pressed ahead with a call for a boycott of presidential polls. "Right now a search is going on in our Saint Petersburg headquarters," Navalny wrote on Twitter, posting a video of uniformed police and non-uniformed officials with his staff. The charismatic politician, who has called a major protest on January 28, is urging voters to boycott the March election in which President Vladimir Putin is expected to win a fourth Kremlin term. Navalny himself has been barred from standing in the...

    CBS "News" ^ | January 18, 2018 | By Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus, Kabir Khanna and Anthony Salvanto
    A year after President Donald Trump was sworn into office, he continues to receive historically low and highly partisan approval ratings, despite widely positive views of the economy. He gets at least some credit for the economy, but most Americans don't feel they've personally benefitted from his policies – only 22 percent think they've been directly helped. Americans overall are feeling upbeat about the economy and the President gets some credit for that. Sixty-seven percent say the economy is very or fair good – a figure that has been at the 60 percent level or higher since Mr. Trump became...

    Oprah running for president may sound like a good idea to some, but Americans aren’t buying it. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll found that just 24 percent of the nearly 2,000 registered voters surveyed actually want her to compete for the White House in 2020. Fifty-nine percent think she shouldn’t run — and 17 percent said they weren’t sure or had no opinion on the matter. “If you were watching cable news the Monday after the Golden Globes, you would have thought the numbers would say 99 percent of Americans want her to run,” explained Robert Thompson, director of the...

    Russia’s health minister has said that Russians consume 80 percent less alcohol than they did five years ago, amid a decrease in smoking levels and an increase in the number of people who do sports. The latest World Health Organization figures put Russia’s alcohol consumption below that of France and Germany. “We have managed to reduce the consumption of alcoholic beverages per capita by 80 percent [in 5 years],” the Kommersant business daily cited Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova as saying Tuesday. Official statistics show average alcohol consumption in Russia plummeting by a third between 2009 and 2016. Consumer rights watchdog...

    The question of who will be the next senator from Arizona, replacing Jeff Flake, is looking less clear than ever this week. For quite a while now it had been looking like Dr. Kelli Ward might have a fairly clear shot at it. She’s the same Tea Party candidate who had been trying to replace John McCain and has quite a following in conservative circles. But now two new flies have dropped into the ointment. In only a week, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Congresswoman Martha McSally have entered the fray. And the initial polling of this new alignment shows that...

    While Stalin is a widely reviled figure in the West, he has a more complicated legacy in Russia, where many remember him as being a strong figure in the country, especially during World War II. In recent years, Russian President Vladimir Putin has pushed for a revised view of Stalin’s legacy that downplays his role in mass purges as simply mistakes made by a great leader. A total of 46 percent of Russians expressed some kind of positive view of Stalin in Levada’s poll, the highest percentage of positive answers since Levada began asking the question in 2001. Thirty-two percent...
