  • CNN Poll: Clinton Blows Double Digit Lead, Trails Trump By Two Points Nationally

    09/06/2016 5:59:26 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 86 replies ^ | September 6, 2016 | Katie Pavlich
    A new CNN poll shows Republican Donald Trump has closed an 11-point gap with Democrat Hillary Clinton and leads her nationally in the race for the White House by two points. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton start the race to November 8 on essentially even ground, with Trump edging Clinton by a scant two points among likely voters, and the contest sparking sharp divisions along demographic lines in a new CNN/ORC Poll. Trump tops Clinton 45% to 43% in the new survey, with Libertarian Gary Johnson standing at 7% among likely voters in this poll and the Green Party's Jill...

    For viewers, a whopping 57 percent said they had a “very positive” reaction to the speech, while only 24 percent said the speech had a “negative effect.” Even more incredible for Trump was that 73 percent of viewers said the policies proposed in the speech would move the country in the “right direction,” with only 24 percent saying otherwise. The speech left 56 percent of viewers saying they are “more likely” to vote for Trump.

    Ted Cruz speaks during his presidential campaign rally at the Fort Worth Stockyards on Sept. 3, 2015. (Photo by Laura Buckman) Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has taken his first-ever lead in an early state poll, surging past billionaire Donald Trump to the no. 1 spot in Iowa. In a Monmouth University poll released Monday, the Texas senator leads Trump 24 percent to 19 percent among likely caucus-goers. His support in the survey has spiked 14 percentage points since October. Monmouth pollster Patrick Murray partly attributed Cruz's rise to a collapse in support for retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, whose numbers have...
  • CNN Poll: Hillary Clinton's lead over Bernie Sanders grows [Biden is the fly in the ointment]

    Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton's lead in the Democratic presidential primary race has grown -- and if Vice President Joe Biden decides to stay out of the race, her numbers would rise even higher, a new CNN/ORC poll shows. Clinton is backed by 42% of Democratic primary voters nationally, compared to 24% for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, 22% for Biden and 1% for former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. That's a marked improvement over an early September CNN/ORC poll that found Clinton leading Sanders, 37% to 27%, with Biden at 20%. And Biden's support comes almost entirely from Clinton's camp. Without the vice...

    This is, I believe, the first poll of the GOP race since the debate conducted by a major news network using traditional phone calls instead of the Internet, so if you’re looking for reasons to give this one extra credence, there you go.What’s the biggest story here? Trump’s rise? Ben Carson’s surprising surge, given his low-key debate performance? Or the decline of Scott Walker?CNN hasn’t polled Iowa recently so there’s no yardstick to measure if Trump gained or lost points since the debate, but most of the other pollsters who’ve surveyed the state lately had him between 17 and...

    It’s the first post-ruling poll I’ve seen in either case. There wasn’t much mystery about where the public was on ObamaCare subsidies — “free” money! — but there was a little suspense around the SSM decision in light of this YouGov poll last week showing a plurality of the public opposed to having the Court decide the issue. That raised the question of whether a backlash might be brewing around process. Sure, Americans support gay marriage in principle, but what happens when the judiciary wrests that issue out of the states’ hands and settles it as a matter of...

You know, Obama's approval numbers have been in the mid-to-low forties before, around 2012, 2013, maybe even 2014. But the media wouldn't go there. They acknowledged it, but they didn't really promote it, not like Wolf Blitzer did by reporting George Bush at 39% something like 25 times in a three-hour show on CNN. Practically coming out of every commercial break: "Breaking news alert: Bush approval lower than ever!" We've played the sound bite for...

The poll found that 63% of Americans believe it was a bad move for congressional leadership to extend the invitation without giving President Barack Obama a heads up that it was coming. Only 33% said the Republican move was the right thing to do. The speech has become a point of contention between Republicans and Democrats. Obama’s allies fear the trip could be used by...

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday also indicates that most Americans predict that the Affordable Care Act will actually result in higher prices for their own medical care. Only 35% of those questioned in the poll say they support the health care law, a 5-point drop in less than a month. Sixty-two percent say they oppose the law, up four points from November.

According to a CNN/ORC International Poll released Monday, 24% of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say Romney is their most likely choice for their party's presidential nominee with Gingrich at 22%. Romney's two-point advantage is well within the survey's sampling error. While the level...

In fact, his electability quotient has risen since the last debate (via Gabriel Malor at AoSHQ): The survey, released Monday morning, indicates that 30 percent of Republicans and independents who lean toward the GOP support Perry for their party’s nomination, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney at 18 percent. Romney, who’s making his second bid for...

Of all the candidates who are either running or still considering a run for the presidency, Sarah Palin most reminds voters of conservative hero and former President Ronald Reagan. (Well, technically, “No GOP candidate” tops the list, but Sarah Palin receives the next-highest proportion, a respectable 16 percent.) Unfortunately for Palinistas, at the moment, Palin’s not even really among those “considering a run for the presidency.”But Palin’s popularity wasn’t the...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) – America can win the war in Iraq, but most Americans think that, in the end, the country won’t succeed, according to a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released Thursday. “Most Americans think that the war is winnable — and that’s a notable change since March — but a majority still doesn’t think that the U.S. will win,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “Back in 2004, just 37 percent thought the U.S. would not win in Iraq, but by 2006, that number had grown to 56 percent, essentially where it is today.” According to the poll, 54...

    Excerpt - Matt Sheffield's post over at Ace's place ("The Attempted Crucifixion of Frank Luntz") noted the heat PBS had received for having GOP pollster Frank Luntz participate as an analyst at last Thursday's Democrat debate: The blog left's puppet master, David Brock, sends out an "alert" informing them that someone who might possibly be conservative is going to be allowed to report as a "mainstream" journalist. ..... Thankfully, PBS has not backed down. Luntz, who is a respected pollster and is often quoted in liberal publications is not getting the shaft, making him one of the very few Republicans...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton’s ties to InfoUSA Chairman Vinod Gupta have raised conflict-of-interest concerns over the firm’s links to CNN. In December, database company InfoUSA acquired the polling firm Opinion Research Corp., which provides CNN with polling services for its coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign. Gupta is actively campaigning for Hillary, and as a result the polling firm’s findings "could be perceived as being colored by Gupta’s connections to the Clintons,” observed. "In May, for example, CNN cited results of an Opinion Research poll that showed Hillary Clinton gaining momentum among liberal voters, without disclosing that the...

    Excerpt - In the Democratic competition for campaign cash, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton continues to turn to every friend she has – even controversial ones. An invitation to a million-dollar Clinton presidential fundraiser next Thursday night in Manhattan lists Vinod Gupta, chief executive of InfoUSA Inc., as a “vice chair” of the event, which means he has committed to raise $50,000 from ticket sales. Mr. Gupta, a friend and benefactor of Mrs. Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, faces a lawsuit from company shareholders accusing him of excessively spending millions of dollars, including $900,000 worth of travel on the Clintons....

    Democrat Jim Webb is slightly ahead of Republican incumbent Sen. George Allen with a week to go in a key race that could determine control of the Senate, according to a poll released Tuesday. The poll by Opinion Research Corp. is the first to show Webb with an advantage in the bruising and expensive contest in once reliably Republican Virginia. "Virginians are a lot smarter than that, and he insulted their intelligence," said Webb spokeswoman Kristian Denny Todd. "It was a baseless attack on Jim that didn't make sense." On Oct. 23, a statewide survey by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research...
