    Fox News put its credibility on the line when it released a new poll on Monday that shows liberal Democrat Doug Jones leads conservative Republican Roy Moore by 10 points, 50 percent to 40 percent, in tomorrow’s special election for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. The contrast between the results reported by Fox News and every other recent major poll could not be sharper. Earlier on Monday, an Emerson Poll was released that shows Moore up by nine points, 53 percent to 44 percent. The five other most recent polls featured in the Real Clear Politics Average of Polls all...

    Republicans head into the holiday season with a daunting number hanging over their heads - 10.7 percent. Democrats lead their Republican rivals by 10.7 percent on the generic congressional ballot, according to the most recent RealClearPolitics average of available polling data. That mark is the highest the RCP's average has gone since just before the 2010 elections, where Republicans netted 63 House seats. It's a gloomy sign for Republicans, and one that dovetails with President Trump's sagging approval rating to boost Democratic optimism about taking the House and raises questions about whether Republicans will be able to take advantage of Democratic weakness on the Senate map. "It's always stupid to make firm predictions in anything,...

    Alabama GOP nominee Roy Moore is polling 12 points behind his Democratic opponent Doug Jones in the wake of allegations that Moore had initiated a sexual encounter with a minor, according to a poll from the Senate GOP’s campaign arm. The National Republican Senatorial Committee’s (NRSC) poll, which was obtained by The Hill, found that Jones was leading Moore by a double-digit margin, 51 to 39 percent. The polling was conducted the day after The Washington Post reported on the allegations. The survey also found that Moore’s favorability has dropped to 35 percent, compared to an NRSC poll from October...

    A recent poll found that fifty percent of millennials say they would rather live in a communist or socialist country than in a capitalist democracy. These numbers can’t be laughed off -- they should frighten you. Maybe they don’t know what communism means. I do. I lived in Communist Poland. Perhaps those fifty percent of millennials were not properly taught about communism in school. That’s too bad, and dangerous. So here are some examples for those misguided millennials to ponder, all of which I experienced in communist Poland.

    MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Two new polls demonstrate that GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore remains unaffected entirely by smears in the Washington Post against him, and his lead before the Post piece on Thursday afternoon remains intact. One of the polls, which were both provided by the pollster to Breitbart News exclusively on Saturday evening, was conducted on Thursday morning before the publication of the Post piece that afternoon. The second one was conducted on Sunday evening. Together, they show Judge Moore’s lead over Democrat Doug Jones has been virtually unaffected since the Post story came out.

    Favorable views of the Democratic Party have dropped to their lowest mark in more than a quarter century of polling, according to new numbers from a CNN poll conducted by SSRS. Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992. The rating includes low favorable ratings from some core Democratic groups, including nonwhites (48%) and people under 35 years old (33%).

    Nearly all senators saw a drop in their popularity during the third quarter of 2017, but GOP lawmakers took the biggest hit, according to a new Morning Consult poll.  Of the 25 senators whose approval ratings fell the most, 18 are Republicans and seven are Democrats. And of the 10 most unpopular senators, just two are Democrats, one of whom, New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, is facing federal corruption charges.    Maine Sen. Susan Collins, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, all Republicans, saw their net approval ratings among GOP voters fall 40 points, 31 points, and 25 points, respectively. All...

    Democratic candidates lead by 15 points in a hypothetical match-up for the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new Fox News poll. In the survey, 50 percent of respondents said that if the election for Congress were held today, they would vote for the Democratic candidate. Only 35 percent said they would vote for a Republican. A year ago, the same question showed voters evenly split, with 45 percent saying they would vote for a Democrat, and 45 percent saying they would vote Republican.

    ATLANTA (AP) — The slaying of five dozen people in Las Vegas did little to change Americans’ opinions about gun laws. The nation is closely divided on whether restricting firearms would reduce such mass shootings or homicides, though a majority favor tighter laws as they have for several years, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The massive divide on stricter limits remains firmly in place.

    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. "Polls...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Cygnal polling, a Montgomery based polling firm, has released the results of a new poll that puts GOP candidate Roy Moore ahead of Democrat Doug Jones by 8 points, with 9% of respondents undecided. The poll also found higher interest levels than from either of the previous two rounds of primary voting. More than 90% of respondents said they were “definitely likely” to show up to vote, which is 5-7% higher than surveys from the first round of primary voting and the GOP runoff. Cygnal President Brent Buchanan said in a news release, “This race between Moore...

    (Reuters) - Outside the Morgan County fair in McConnelsville, in a rural swath of Ohio that fervently backed U.S. President Donald Trump in last year’s election, ticket seller John Wilson quietly counts off a handful of disappointments with the man he helped elect. The 70-year-old retired banker said he is unhappy with infighting and turnover in the White House. He does not like Trump’s penchant for traveling to his personal golf resorts. He wishes the president would do more to fix the healthcare system, and he worries that Trump might back down from his promise to force illegal immigrants out...
