  • In the key 2018 battlegrounds, Trump's support is as high as ever

    Why Democrats can’t really crow about the president’s declining approval numbers. Ever since Inauguration Day, the public’s faith in the president has been eroding. According to the latest Gallup surveys, only about 38 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s performance, which is down roughly 5 points from February. Vox’s own polling, conducted in partnership with SurveyMonkey, shows a similar drop — from 46 percent at the outset of his term to 41 percent in July. For the president’s critics, these slipping approval numbers seem like vindication. They show that Americans aren’t blind to the disorder in the White House —...
  • Colorado Democrats may benefit from gerrymandering

    Colorado Republicans cried foul when, after the last U.S. Census in 2010, the state Supreme Court approved a Democratic-drawn map reapportioning the state's 65 House seats. GOP leaders, including then-party chair Ryan Call, argued the new map packed Republican legislators into individual districts, diminishing their clout, especially in the metropolitan Denver area. .... "Democrats are absolutely benefiting from the current maps, and there's no question they won't continue if the process doesn't change," Call said. "Republicans have not shown themselves to be good at legal challenges. Hats off to the Democratic litigators." Colorado was one of just eight U.S. states...

    As many of you know, I've been tracking voter registration changes since November in 11 battleground states. In some rust belt states, the population is decreasing, so both parties may see a decline, but the numbers represented below, whether actual increase or decline are the NET gains of Republicans over Democrats since November. PA Rs +104,000 (this is one of the states in decline, but Ds are falling much faster. This represents an additional net R gain of 2k in just a month. NM Rs +11,218 NC (these numbers only came up recently) Rs +61k AZ Rs +9,200 (this is...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that he knew a month before the 2016 election that Hillary Clinton would lose key battleground states. Biden made the comment during a closed-door appearance with Mitt Romney at the annual Romney-hosted E2 Summit, reports Politico. Based on his assessment of campaigning in those key battleground states, he said, he knew a month before the election that Clinton would lose them. Biden also stepped on Hillary just last month, saying he never thought she was a “great candidate” during a conference in Las Vegas. …

    Illegal interference in the battleground states. There is already evidence that voter fraud is being perpetrated in critical battleground states like Virginia and Colorado a month before Election Day. Voter fraud is commonplace. Completely eliminating it is impossible. The most policymakers can do is create laws and policies that attempt to minimize it. Voter fraud is unlawful interference with the electoral process in an effort to bring about a desired result. Voter fraud is also called vote fraud, election fraud, and electoral fraud. It refers to fraudulent voting, impersonation, intimidation, perjury, voter registration fraud, forgery, counterfeiting, bribery, destroying already cast...

    Hillary Clinton took the lead in five key battleground states following the first presidential debate, giving her a solid boost with just over five weeks until Election Day, according to a poll released Thursday. Voters in the five states — Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia — also declared Clinton the winner of the much-anticipated slugfest with Donald Trump, according to Public Policy Polling.

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is surging in battleground states Iowa and Virginia in newly released polls, consistent with the national trend reported this week by Reuters-Ipsos and other major polling operations. A handful of swing states—experts always mention at least five, and no more than eleven—will determine the winner of the presidential race, mainly concentrated in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Southwest. Polling numbers from two of those states seem to fit a larger trend over the past two weeks of improving chances for Donald Trump to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton....

    Hillary Clinton may be surging in national polls, but in the key swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, Donald J. Trump remains in striking distance. According to a group of surveys of likely voters released on Tuesday by Quinnipiac University, Mrs. Clinton holds a one percentage point lead in Florida, a four-point lead in Ohio and a 10-point lead in Pennsylvania over Mr. Trump. The polls, which had a margin of error of plus-or-minus three percentage points, are slightly closer when Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, the Libertarian and Green Party nominees, are included.

    Support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump ticked up across battleground states following the Republican National Convention last week, according to the new CBS News Battleground Tracker Poll. Trump now has 42 percent support across the 11 battleground states surveyed — up from the 40 percent he had last week before the convention. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has 41 percent support, unchanged from last week's poll. According to the poll, 55 percent of Republicans said Trump's message at the convention made them feel hopeful, and about 40 percent said it made them feel enthusiastic. Among independents, 32 percent...

    On November 6, 2012, 3.2 million fewer Americans voted for Mitt Romney than President Obama. 61.8 million Americans voted for Obama, while only 58.6 million voted for Romney. Despite losing the popular vote 51% to 48%--not a landslide for Obama by any means, but on the other hand not the “neck and neck” outcome many predicted--Mitt Romney would be President today if he had secured 333,908 more votes in four key swing states. The final electoral college count gave President Obama a wide 332 to 206 margin over Romney. 270 electoral college votes are needed to win the Presidency. Romney...

    In the aftermath of the conventions, two trends are conspiring to raise the presidential stakes in Wisconsin: the polling bounce Mitt Romney got in this state after picking Paul Ryan as his running mate, and Romney’s struggles elsewhere on the map, which make winning Wisconsin more important than ever to the GOP. And yes, things are heating up here

    America is at a crucial tipping point in its illustrious history. The socialist minded presidential principles of Obama have joined with millions of illegal aliens who have been given a presidential pass to demand entry through your gates to rights and privileges given citizens. They can ignore federal and state citizenship laws, and walk openly into your cities to demand housing in your neighborhoods. Illegal aliens can insist upon free health care at your hospitals and soon sue for the right to the keys to your child’s college education. This is not the future in America…This is America today, this...

    Swing States, Battlegrounds and the 2012 Map Stuart Rothenberg June 19, 2012 · 3:37 PM EDT Everyone has an opinion about swing states. I figured it was time to explain how I see the presidential map. My approach isn’t based solely on statistics, though numbers matter a great deal. (I suppose this means that while I admire Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s approach to baseball, I also think that non-quantifiable considerations are part of the analytical mix.) When I use the term “swing states,” I am referring to those states that in a “neutral” landscape are likely to be...

    President Obama's reelection team has spun multiple pathways to an electoral vote majority, but a glance at his state-by-state approval ratings throughout 2011 suggests the campaign has been doing a lot of bluffing. First, the good news for Team Obama: His political standing is in respectable shape in traditionally Democratic Midwestern battlegrounds, like Wisconsin, Michigan and the more Republican heartland state of Iowa (46 approval/46 disapproval). Obama's numbers in Virginia are better than in other battleground states - 45 percent approve, 49 percent disapprove.  And his numbers in North Carolina (44/49 approve/disapprove) and Florida (44/48 approve/disapprove) and even Georgia (45/48...

    President Obama and his re-election team have prided themselves on their well-oiled get-out-the-vote effort.  But a new study from the centrist think tank Third Way suggests Democrats are losing ground organizationally in nearly all of the key battleground states in the general election. The group's analysis found that, in the eight politically-pivotal states that register voters by party, a significant number have left the Democratic party since 2008, with many choosing to register as independents.  Over 825,000 registered Democrats in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina and Pennsylvania have departed the party rolls since President Obama's...

Unlike other polls, the PurplePoll focuses exclusively on the 12 states that have decided presidential elections for the past dozen years, and will do so again in 2012: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. Eight of these states won by President Obama in 2008 have swung between Republican and Democratic candidates since 1996. The four others (NH, MN, PA, and...
