  • Trump's approval rating just entered a league of its own

    President Donald Trump's approval rating sank to a new low in CNN polling on Tuesday, earning the approval of just 35% of Americans less than a year into his first term. That's a significant drop from the 45% approval rating that Trump had in March, shortly after taking office. It marks the worst approval rating in a December of any elected president's first year in the White House by a wide margin — and only the second time since the dawn of modern polling that a president's approval rating sank under 50% at this point. A broad 59% of Americans...

    CNN’s brand continues to go in a downward spiral, according to a poll. A YouGov poll shows that CNN falls behind MSNBC and Fox News in brand perception, the Daily Caller reports. The poll asked respondents, “If you’ve heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?” Of the three cable networks, Fox News was the only network to score a neutral brand perception. CNN and MSNBC both scored negative on brand perception. “CNN’s negative acceleration point happened in mid-October 2016, around the time Anderson Cooper interviewed...
  • Another Poll Found President Trump’s Approval Rating Is Historically Low

    President Donald Trump, who entered the White House with historically low approval ratings, continues to receive record high disapproval ratings compared to his predecessors. Two weeks into Trump’s presidency, a majority of people (53%) disapprove of how he is handling the job, while just 44% approve, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Friday. Those numbers reflect the highest disapproval rating for a newly elected president since such figures were first tracked, according to CNN. By comparison, former President Ronald Reagan’s initial approval rating of 51% was only slightly higher than Trump’s, but his disapproval rating (13%) was not nearly as...
  • CNN Poll: Americans Overwhelmingly Support Obamacare Repeal

    In case you'd missed it last week, prior to the press shifting its collective attention to suddenly caring about crowd sizes again, there was a New Narrative a-brewin'. Namely, that Obamacare's popularity is suddenly on the rise, and that Republican efforts to uproot it have become a political liability. It's undoubtedly true that implementing a complex operation that again scrambles the healthcare status quo will be a challenging lift, especially with Democrats digging in their heels against any viable alternative proposal. Some of the power dynamics will be tricky, and will require unity of purpose and strong messaging from the GOP...
  • CNN Poll: Clinton Blows Double Digit Lead, Trails Trump By Two Points Nationally

    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...

    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...
  • CNN poll: 63% support Supreme Court’s ObamaCare ruling, 59% support gay-marriage ruling

    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...

    RUSH: CNN. This is not a new thing, but it's the first time I've seen this headline, and it's at CNN. "Obama Approval Heads Downhill." 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...

    A large majority of Americans believe that Republican congressional leaders should not have invited Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress without consulting the White House, a new CNN/ORC survey release on Tuesday found. 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...

    Support for the country's new health care law has dropped to a record low, according to a new national poll. 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. The poll was conducted for CNN by ORC International December 16-19, with 1,035 adults nationwide questioned...

    Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse. Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012. Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from...

    Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way. According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested...

That's up 20 points since 2001. Seventy-nine percent favor using facial-recognition technology to search for suspected terrorists at public events. …

    RUSH: You know, that CNN poll yesterday that had it tied 49-49 with a Democrat-plus-11 sample? I looked at that poll. And there is a piece of information in that poll that, if it is accurate, makes Dick Morris right on the money. It is a stunning, in fact, little-bitty piece of information that's tucked away in a chart that nine-out-of-ten, 99-out-of-a-hundred, 999-out-of-a-thousand people would gloss over and it is not even see. But if it's right? Whew! If it's right, folks, we're whistling Dixie here. I'll get to that in just a moment. Again the questions: Do you think...

    Washington (CNN) – A new national survey of Republicans indicates that it's basically all tied up between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich in the race for the GOP presidential nomination, with Gingrich on the rise and businessman Herman Cain falling due to the sexual harassment allegations he's been facing the past two weeks. 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...
