  • President Trump’s First 100 Days in Office

    Epoch Times ^ | April 27, 2017 | Stephen Gregory
    President Donald Trump recently tweeted that evaluating a president after the first 100 days in office was a “ridiculous standard.” In fact, there is widespread agreement that looking back at the accomplishments of a president from the vantage point of the first 100 days is arbitrary. But there are reasons for the nation to want to take stock of this new administration early and often. Trump’s election was a response to a silent crisis in our country—silent because our political and media establishments failed to address it.

  • Poll: Democrats More Out of Touch Than GOP, Trump

    More Americans say the Democratic Party is "out of touch with the concerns of most Americans" than either the Republican Party or President Trump, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. According to the survey, 67 percent of those polled said the Democratic Party was "out of touch" with common American concerns, and only 28 percent said the party is "in touch." Six percent said they had no opinion. These numbers are similar to but worse than those for the Republican Party: 62 percent of those polled said they thought Republicans were out of touch, while 32 percent said...
  • Poll: Trump would beat Clinton in a rematch among 2016 voters

    Good lord. It’s one thing to blow an election once, but to lose hypothetically to a guy with a 42 percent approval rating again? Is there no limit to the humiliation the Clintons will suffer at Trump’s hands? We’ll have our answer when Ivanka and Chelsea inevitably square off in 2024. The same ABC/WaPo poll found that when 2016 voters were asked who they actually did vote for last November, 46 percent said Clinton versus 43 percent who said Trump — the same number he gets in this hypothetical rematch. In other words, given the option of a do-over, virtually...

    The Toronto Sun ^ | April 23, 2017 | Aaron Blake, The Washington Post
    Anecdotal stories about disillusioned supporters of Donald Trump are overdone. The fact is that, on a broad scale, Trump supporters say they aren't disappointed. In fact, a poll showed they were more pleased than disappointed, by about 5 to 1: "...The Pew Research Center released a poll showing very little buyer's remorse among Trump voters. The poll showed just 7% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say Trump has performed worse than they expected him to. Fully 38% - five times as many - say he has performed better." A new Washington Post-ABC News poll confirms this - in spades. And,...

    A new Washington Post poll that declares President Trump as "the least popular president in modern times," waits until the second to last paragraph to reveal another tidbit: He'd still beat Hillary Rodham Clinton if the election were held today and in the popular vote, not just Electoral College.The poll found that Trump's polls continue to be upside down, with a 42 percent approval and 53 percent disapproval. Also unchanged: His base still likes him.It's not until the second to last paragraph of the long story that it's shown Clinton would still lose to the president, despite the high disapproval...

    You’d think the leading voices in the media and among pollsters would have learned their lesson after being so off the mark in their coverage of Donald Trump. They’re losing their grasp on both reality and their readers. But instead of correcting course, many of them are doubling down in the sanity. Just last week we saw this in play in the pages of – where else? – The New York Times. As if not content to let their November election night prediction that Hillary Clinton had a 92% chance of winning the presidency, the English-speaking world’s liberal paper of...

    So guess what? In the last weeks before the election, the Hillary Clinton campaign did no polling. No. Polling. Whatsoever. Oh, it had data. Lots and lots of data. Analytics, even. Data analytics! But it had no independent information on the overall field of battle in states like Florida, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. So when the election began to turn Donald Trump’s way, the Clinton campaign had no idea. This is one of the thousand revelations in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” the new book by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes that, for political junkies, redefines the...

    New data shows that Ryan's job approval rating has dropped below 50% among both Republicans and Trump voters The American Health Care Act, the GOP replacement for Obamacare, is — at least for now — just a memory. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan himself has admitted that "Obamacare is the law of the land … for the foreseeable future." The latest Economist/YouGov Poll suggests that opinions of Ryan and the House Republicans, but not President Trump, have diminished after the GOP-majority House of Representatives failed to vote on the proposed health care legislation. And that loss of support comes...
  • 1 in 3 voters give President Trump a grade F

    After more than two months in office, America’s new president, Republican Donald Trump, got a grade of F from 1 in 3 voters, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll. By contrast, the same number graded predecessor Democrat Barack Obama’s performance a B as he approached his 100th day in office. “Every time he speaks . . . it is so negative,” said Whitni Milton, 31, a professional singer from Atlanta who participated in the poll. “I have never seen someone who has riled up so many people.”

    The Politico ^ | March 27, 2017 | Steven Shepard
    As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states. . . Determining what exactly happened is one of the...

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — While pundits breathlessly reported this week that President Trump’s Gallup approval rating has plummeted to a historic low (dipping to 37 points), not all approval ratings are created equal. Because in American politics, geography is everything. Live in an urban, minority or college setting, and Donald J. Trump is underwater in the polls in a big way; he gets a frosty 29 percent approval rating in the cities, 35 percent approval in the urban suburbs, in the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal survey. But, live in the second ring of suburbs outside the cities, or the exurbs or...

    The Hill ^ | March 23, 2017 | Olivia Beavers
    Some of President Trump's supporters expressed a more favorable view of him following a number of recent controversies surrounding his administration, according to an online poll released Thursday. In a handful of cases, while most registered voters expressed a negative view of Trump after the controversies, a plurality of Trump voters felt more favorably toward him, according to the Politico/Morning Consult poll. Nearly 20 percent of respondents said the polled controversies did not change their opinions of the president. Some of the controversies in the poll include the resignation of Trump's first national security adviser Michael Flynn last month, Attorney...

    US News & World Report ^ | March 22, 2017 | Kenneth T. Walsh
    President Donald Trump's core supporters are staying with him in his hour of need. Polls by Gallup and other survey researchers indicate that at least 80 percent of fellow Republicans approve of his job performance, even though the latest Gallup tracking survey finds that Trump has poor ratings with the general electorate. Only 39 percent of Americans approve of his job performance and 55 percent disapprove. But because his core supporters remain committed to him, it's unlikely that his overall job approval rating will decline much more, political strategists of both major parties say. This is particularly important now because...

    A new game: It’s called Things You Should Never Believe. And why can you never believe them? Because they are always bogus, which is to say, they lie.1. CBO - The Congressional Budget Office; they lie regardless of which party is in power and cannot be trusted to be anything remotely close to accurate. Remember when they scored the Affordable Care Act? Health Reform: Remember when Democrats were promising that ObamaCare would cut the deficit by $1 trillion in its second decade? Turns out they were off by, well, about $1 trillion. And even that’s assuming that: ObamaCare's extraordinarily deep...

    At 7:36 pm Tuesday night, Rachel Maddow tweeted “BREAKING: We've got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously),” sending the internet into a frenzy of theorizing. Did Maddow have Donald Trump’s tax returns or just one of the Trumps’ tax returns? Could this be it, the tax return that would bring down the Donald? If this was it, why wasn't MSNBC cutting into its programming, instead of running a countdown clock to Maddow’s show? By 8:24, Maddow was tweeting that the tax return in question was Donald Trump’s 1040 from 2005. By 8:30, still half an hour before Maddow...

    The latest poll by USA Today and Suffolk University carried some eye-opening numbers about public disapproval of the media's aggressive attempts to run the country. It found that President Trump has a 47 percent approval rating and that 44 percent disapprove of him. That's not surprising. The media talk about his unpopularity all the time. But here's what they don't talk about: their own numbers. Only 37 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of their job performance. A whopping 50 percent have an unfavorable opinion. Look at the numbers by party identification. Republican unfavorable opinion of the media? It's...
