    A new Gallup poll shines a spotlight on the deep political divide in America and surely points to what the upcoming presidential election will be about. Gallup asked, "How proud are you to be an American?" Seventy-six percent of Republicans said "extremely proud" compared with 22 percent of Democrats. Broken down by age, 63% of those over 65 said "extremely proud," and only 24% of those 18 to 29. This tells us something about Nike's recent move to pull its Betsy Ross flag sneakers from the marketplace, having taken guidance from its ex-football star anti-hero, now-Nike corporate spokesman, Colin Kaepernick....

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.

    President Donald Trump’s approval rating has climbed to 45%, a new Gallup poll reveals. It is up from the 39% approval rating he received in March. It marks the third time Trump has achieved a 45% job approval rating in the Gallup trends poll. His other 45 percent ratings were recorded in his first week in office and again after his first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Fifty-one percent of those polled disapprove of his job performance. Here is how the poll breaks down: 89% of Republicans approve of the job Trump is doing. 8% of Democrats...

The poll also found that a majority of voters approve of Trump's handling of unemployment and of the situation with North Korea, with 54 percent approving of Trump's job with...
  • Top Gallup editor: Faulty polling led to inaccurate 2016 data models

    Frank Newport, editor-in-chief at the Gallup Poll, on Monday said that data analyst websites, not national polls, were the ones incorrect in their 2016 presidential election predictions. “The national polling was actually one of the more accurate years where they correctly predicted the popular vote,” Newport said to Hill.TV's Joe Concha, referring to national polls. “But one of the things that happened was an overreliance on these models where various individuals and various companies put together these scientific-sounding probabilistic models,” he continued.

    Three-quarters of U.S. investors with more than $10,000 in stocks, bonds and mutual funds think bitcoin is a "very risky" investment, a new survey revealed Monday. A poll conducted by Gallup and Wells Fargo asked U.S.-based investors about their views on bitcoin, finding that just 2 percent currently own any and more than 70 percent "have no interest in ever buying bitcoin." A further 26 percent are "intrigued" but do not plan to purchase any in the near future, the poll found. The poll surveyed nearly 2,000 adults in the U.S. who have invested either in a retirement savings account...
  • Anyone Notice That Trump Is Now Tied With 'Popular' Obama On Job Approval?

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 6/20/2018 | IBD Editorial Board
    Popularity: President Trump can't get a break from negative press coverage, but somehow his approval rating continues to edge upward. In fact, it's now tied with where the "extremely popular" President Obama was at this point in his first term. The latest Gallup poll puts Trump's job approval at 45%. That's the highest it's been since he took office, and it's up from 37% at the start of the year. Although you'd barely know it from the press Trump gets, his approval number has been on a slow but relatively steady rise all year. Not only that, but Trump's approval...

    And church attendance by Roman Catholics is on the decline again. So, in fact, is the religious affiliation among Americans at large.The drop continues a long trend of declining attendance at mass. In the last three years, an average of only 39 percent of Catholics reported attending church in the past week. That’s down from an average of 45 percent just 10 years ago. And severely off from the mid-1900’s. In 1955, for instance, 75 percent of Catholics reported attending mass during the previous week.On the other side of the aisle, the new Gallup survey found that church attendance...

  • First Lady Melania Trump Lets Her Light Shine Despite Her Detractors

    A Gallup Poll released this past Friday found that First Lady Melania Trump is viewed favorably by 54 percent of Americans. That amounts to a remarkable 17 percent improvement since January, which the pollster attributes to Mrs. Trump becoming “better known in her role as first lady.” But I think there’s another factor Gallup has completely overlooked – the grace with which the First Lady, a committed Christ follower, has evinced in the face of unrelenting attacks from haters, many of whom are members of the so-called Fourth Estate, who think no attack too vile or too petty. Indeed, at...

    A recent Gallup poll found bipartisan support for federal funding of school choice programs. "The other two Trump proposals that generate more agreement than disagreement from Americans are cutting taxes for the middle class and providing federal funding for school-choice programs that allow students to attend any private or public school," Gallup reported. "Republicans strongly support both of these proposals, and Democrats are more likely to agree than disagree with them, although by slim margins." In its "National School Choice Poll" the American Federation for Children (AFC) found that 68% of likely voters support school choice, and 72% supported the...

    <p>We told you in September that the public’s trust in the news media is at an all-time low of 31 percent, according to a Gallup poll. I suspect that if you took another one today it would be even lower. And while it may be true that Donald Trump has had something to do with that, it’s only because he’s brought out the fullness of the behavior that proves just how untrustworthy they are.</p>

    A majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump's work during his first week in the White House - breaking a record of how long it generally takes the majority of Americans to disapprove of a president. On Saturday, 51 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump, a Gallup poll found. The poll tracks daily approval ratings for Trump by surveying 1,500 Americans. It took just eight days to reach these ratings. It took at least several hundred days for the majority of Americans to disapprove of past presidents.
  • Americans Still See Big Government as Top Threat

    Gallup ^ | January 5, 2017 | By Noam Fishman and Alyssa Davis
    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- As businessman Donald Trump prepares to become the nation's 45th president, Americans continue to express more concern about the threat big government poses to the U.S. than big business or big labor. Two in three Americans (67%) identify big government as the country's biggest threat. That is below the record high of 72% in 2013 but still on the higher end of the range since the mid-1960s. Meanwhile, the 26% of Americans who name big business as the biggest threat remains down from 32% in 2009 amid the economic recession, but it is near the average since...

    allup poll seemed to put a damper on Donald Trump's presidency before he's even sworn in, with fewer than half the public saying he's up to the job of being president. At least, that's how the results are being reported. But a closer look at the data tells a much different story. The Gallup results got huge pickup in the press, with most running headlines along the lines of "Most Americans Don't Think Donald Trump Can Handle Being President." Gallup asked a series of questions to gauge the public's confidence in Trump's ability to handle the economy, prevent major scandals,...

    In the wake of an election in which Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but Donald Trump was elected president by winning the Electoral College, a survey showed the lowest percentage of people ever in a Gallup poll saying they would support amending the Constitution to eliminate the Electoral College and decide presidential elections by the popular vote. “This year, for the first time in the 49 years Gallup has asked about it, less than half of Americans want to replace the Electoral College with a popular vote system,” Gallup said in an analysis of its poll results. Gallup’s latest...

    But still way too high... It doesn’t matter who you are. If you’re awake, if you’re paying attention to what’s going on in the world around you, there’s a good chance you don’t trust the press. Considering the inarguable fact that most mainstream media outlets are little more than regurgitators for Democrat talking points, this is hardly surprising. If they ever really existed, the days of non-partisan journalistic curiosity and integrity are long gone. We know this, and we cite examples every day. Now we have some polling that shows just how far the mighty fourth estate has fallen. According...

    In 2016, a majority of Americans (60%) have a positive image of capitalism, while only 35 percent have a positive image of socialism, a recent Gallup poll shows. According to Gallup, “Americans’ image of socialism is no better now than it was six years ago.” Indeed, it is slightly worse. Back in 2010, a greater percentage (36%) of Americans had a positive view of socialism than do today (35%), and in 2012, 39 percent of Americans had a positive view of socialism, denoting a four percent drop between then and now. Meanwhile, capitalism saw only a marginal drop over the...
