    Republican Roy Moore leads Democrat Doug Jones by 11 percentage points in a new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research. The survey of 3,000 likely Alabama voters finds Moore receiving 51% support to 40% for Jones. Nine percent remain undecided in the exclusive poll conducted on Monday. "The value of a poll depends on a range of circumstances. A number of recent polls have shown us with a strong lead, but at the end of the day, the one poll that matters above all others is taken on Election Day," Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead said....
  • Failed Prognosticator Chris Cillizza Predicts 2018 Republican Doom

    That great political genius Chris Cillizza of CNN has made a prediction that appears to spell doom for Republicans in the 2018 congressional elections. Okay, perhaps Cillizza did hilariously flop on his prediction of Donald Trump having near zero chance winning the presidency but this time he is armed with polls. Lots of polls to back up his contention that Here's why Republicans are in deep trouble in 2018:

    We’ve all read the stories, heard anecdotes, and seen it spewed over the media—that Trump voters are all the same. They all have the same motivations, right? Not really. In fact, the Trump coalition’s views on economics and government are quite diverse. You notice GOP consternation about Trump bashing congressional Republicans from time to time—that’s not by accident. Most voters view Trump as an independent rather than the head of a major party. In fact, new polling shows that Trump is actually more popular than the GOP leadership in some key counties for the 2018 midterms. Not really a shocker...
  • Republicans Want Trump to Go to War With North Korea Before Kim Attacks the U.S., New Poll Shows

    Yahoo! News ^ | October 12, 2017 | Christianna Silva, Newsweek
    An increasingly hostile relationship between the U.S. and North Korea has Americans considering a preemptive strike on the country—and many Republicans are all for it. About 46 percent of Republicans support a preemptive strike on North Korea today—compare that with just 42 percent of Republicans who say they don't support it, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. When members of both major parties are surveyed, that question changes a lot. Only 16 percent of Democrats favor the idea of the U.S. making a preemptive strike on North Korea, while a whopping 77 percent of Democrats oppose it. Across both...
  • Trump Support Underrated in Surveys, says Ex-Clinton Pollster

    A top Democrat pollster warned Thursday that surveys showing President Donald Trump with low approval ratings make the same mistakes as those last year that predicted a massive victory for Hillary Clinton. "The polls that failed to detect the full strength of President Trump on Election Day continue to underestimate the president's support for the job he is doing, paying way too much attention to the Twitter wars and ignoring the public support for many of the actions he is undertaking," wrote Mark Penn, a pollster for former President Bill Clinton and chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

    Only yesterday we looked at a new law in California which could impose fines or even jail time for healthcare workers who refuse to refer to transgender patients using the pronouns which are opposite of their actual gender. At the time I wondered if that could possibly withstand a legal challenge, but that may not be their biggest problem. A new poll from the Cato Institute and YouGov examines a number of different speech issues in our country, and among others it finds that folks are not at all in favor of punishing people for refusing to indulge in unscientific...
  • Trump is on track to win reelection

    The Washington Post ^ | October 6, 2017 | Doug Sosnik
    More than half of Americans don’t think Donald Trump is fit to serve as president, yet he has a clear path to winning reelection. If Trump isn’t removed from office and doesn’t lead the country into some form of global catastrophe, he could secure a second term simply by maintaining his current level of support with his political base. We have entered a new era in American politics. The 2016 election exposed how economic, social and cultural issues have splintered the country and increasingly divided voters by age, race, education and geography. This isn’t going to change. What have changed...
  • ESPN Misrepresents Results from Their Own Poll Which Shows That Fans Are Sick of Anthem Protests

    Breitbart ^ | 09/29/2017 | Warner Todd Huston
    The basic math of this story is easy to follow: ESPN conducts a poll on anthem protests, ESPN doesn’t like results of the poll on anthem protests, therefore ESPN deliberately misrepresents the results from the poll on anthem protests. With its new Global Strategy Group poll, ESPN states that Americans “are divided in their attitudes” about the NFL’s protests during the playing of the national anthem. However, far from “divided,” many of the results find Americans far more united in their negative feelings about the protests. The poll found that a lopsided majority disapprove of the anthem protests, with 51...

The latest figures include 29% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 46% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17. (see trends).

    The Daily Caller ^ | September 22, 2017 | Liam Clancy
    An NBC/WSJ poll released Thursday reveals that more Republican voters consider themselves a “supporter of Donald Trump” rather than a “supporter of the Republican Party.” A whopping 58 percent of respondents indicated they considered themselves Trump supporters, while only 38 percent indicated they considered themselves supporters of the Republican party. 2 percent see themselves as both, while 1 percent said they were neither. The poll further reveals a split within the Republican party, as Trump supporters hold a far less positive opinions of many GOP politicians. For example, only 13 percent of Trump supporters view Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell...

  • 'Fraud': Mainstream polls use 29% more Democrats than Republicans

    Washington Examiner ^ | 09/22/2017 | Paul Bedard
    Most of the top political polls that got the 2016 presidential race dead wrong are continuing to use a flawed methodology in rating President Trump's approval ratings that favors Democrats, women and younger voters, according to a new analysis. The report shows that the mainstream polls oversample an average of 29 percent more Democrats than Republicans and the results skew anti-Trump. The result is that it robs Trump of about 8 points in his approval ratings, from 46 percent to 38 percent, it said. And, said the report from Bombthrowers.com, one outfit, the Economist, used 58 percent more Democrats than...

    It’s not just crazy places like the University of California at Berkeley where surprisingly large numbers of U.S. college students believe that violence and shouting are acceptable methods to prevent people from saying things. Fifty-one percent of all U.S. college students believe shouting is an acceptable response to free speech, and one in five (19 percent) believe violence is an acceptable response, according to results from a national survey of 1,500 students in 49 states and DC. Fifty-three percent of survey respondents said colleges should “create a positive learning environment for all students by prohibiting certain speech or expression of...

  • Trump Approval Rating Rises

    Multichannel News ^ | September 20, 2017 | John Eggerton
    While still historically low, President Donald Trump's approval rating is on the upswing, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll. After a lowest-ever showing of 39% in last month's poll, the most recent survey finds his overall approval rating up at 43%. Among Republicans, 80% gave their approval, up from 73% in the previous poll. Among Democrats 40% approve of his performance, up from 35% last month. The improvement likely has to do with Trump's recent signals he is willing to compromise with Democrats on a successor program to DACA, the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "Trump's post-Charlottesville...

    Nearly half of Russian citizens approve of 1939's Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, a Levada Center poll released on Wednesday has found. Thirteen percent of Levada’s respondents said they “definitely approve” of the pact, while 32 percent they “somewhat approve” of it. A combined 17 percent said they “definitely” or “somewhat” disapprove of the treaty that the USSR and Nazi Germany signed on Aug. 23, 1939. Two-fifths of the 1,600 people polled said they had “heard of” the pact and “think that it happened in real life,” the survey revealed. One-third said they’ve never heard of...

    Despite their failure to advance President Trump’s agenda, congressional Republicans aren’t happy about his outreach to Democrats in the House and Senate, but most voters think it’s a great idea. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters say it is good for the country if Trump works with congressional Democrats to advance his agenda. Just 13% think the bipartisan cooperation is bad for the country, while 21% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 09.12.2017 | Jefferson Chase
    The German election has two faces. Most observers consider the race at the top over, with conservative Chancellor Angela Merkel running around 15 percent ahead of her Social Democratic (SPD) rival Martin Schulz. Yet skepticism remains about the accuracy of pre-election opinion surveys. After all, the overwhelming majority of pollsters failed to predict victories for the pro-Brexit camp in the UK and Donald Trump in the US. The methodologies used by German pollsters range from the telephone interviews employed by established organizations like Infratest dimap and Forsa, which have standing contracts with major news outlets, and online surveys used by...

    You dance with the one who brung you to the dance.”The wisdom of that old political adage might seem outdated in this age of expensive consultants, focus groups with instantaneous tracking of reactions, and micro-targeting of voters.  But the McLaughlin & Associates poll released this week reinforces the wisdom of that adage for any Republican who wants to avoid defeat in the 2018 primary season and in the general election that follows.  The message of that McLaughlin poll could not be clearer or simpler for Republicans as they choose in the coming weeks between the agenda of President Trump and...
