  • Wendy Davis Losing In Texas Is A Win, Or Something

    Today on Slate’s feminist XX blog, there was a headline that read: Even if She Loses in Texas, Wendy Davis Is a Win for America. Seriously? So, a Texas State Senator, who filibustered a bill that would ban abortions twenty-weeks into a pregnancy last summer, is a “win for America?” Jessica Grose, who wrote the article, added: Now, for all the support Davis’ campaign has received from fellow Democrats in Washington and elsewhere—former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm called her “Joan of Arc, standing up there for women all across the country”—she’s still running for governor of a deeply red state....
  • This Conservative Icon (George Will) Isn’t Apologizing for the Column that Has ‘the Rabble’ Furious

    George Will isn’t backing down, even as critics are “calling for [his] head.” Will’s Washington Post column on sexual assault stirred up a great deal of controversy, as he acknowledged in an interview with C-SPAN published Friday. “Today, for some reason … indignation is the default position of certain people in civic discourse,” he said. “They go from a standing start to fury in about 30 seconds.” The internet has “erased the barriers of entry to public discourse,” Will said, which is good because more people can be involved in conversations, but it’s bad because a lot of those people...
  • Medical pot measure could boost Fla. Democrats

    Tied to an unpopular president and his signature health care law, Democrats in the nation’s largest swing state see medical marijuana as a potential antidote to political malaise in this year’s midterm elections. Party operatives are pushing a constitutional amendment that would make Florida the first state in the South to legalize some pot use. Polls show the measure has widespread public support, and it’s particularly popular among young voters—a critical part of the Democratic coalition with historically weak turnout in non-presidential election years. “I wish that it didn’t take medical marijuana on the ballot to motivate our young voters,”...

  • Gallup: Most Americans for Raising Minimum Wage

    Gallup ^ | 11/12/2013 | Andrew Dugan
    With momentum building at the federal and state level to increase hourly base pay, more than three-quarters of Americans (76%) say they would vote for raising the minimum wage to $9 per hour (it is currently $7.25) in a hypothetical national referendum, a five-percentage-point increase since March. About one-fifth (22%) would vote against this. Voters in New Jersey amended the state constitution last week to raise the minimum wage $1 to $8.25, by 61% to 39%. Yet a Gallup poll conducted Nov. 5-6 shows that an even greater percentage of Americans would vote for an even higher minimum wage. Of...

  • All in a name: Jimmy Kimmel quizzes Americans on ‘Obamacare’ vs. Affordable Care Act

    In most polls, a majority of Americans say they oppose “Obamacare.” But a number of recent polls suggest that many of those same people are more supportive of the Affordable Care Act. There’s just one problem: They’re the same thing. A recent CNBC poll found 46 percent of respondents said they are opposed to Obamacare. But only 37 percent of the same people taking part in the poll say they oppose the Affordable Care Act. So, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel decided to take the seeming contradiction to the next level by filming a video in which he asked people to...

    One evening last autumn, I sat long hours with a European acquaintance while he expounded a political-economic doctrine which seemed sound as a nut and in which I could find no defect. At the end, he said with great earnestness: "I have a mission to the masses. I feel that I am called to get the ear of the people. I shall devote the rest of my life to spreading my doctrine far and wide among the population. What do you think?" An embarrassing question in any case, and doubly so under the circumstances, because my acquaintance is a very...
  • Gallup: Americans' Attention to IRS, Benghazi Stories Below Average

    Gallup ^ | 05/16/2013 | Frank Newport
    Slim majorities of Americans are very or somewhat closely following the situations involving the Internal Revenue Service (54%) and the congressional hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and its aftermath (53%) -- comparatively low based on historical measures of other news stories over the last two decades. These results are based on a May 14-15 Gallup poll. Despite extensive news coverage of these stories in recent days, the level of attention being paid to each is below the average 60% of Americans who have closely followed more than 200 news stories Gallup has measured over...

    Jimmy Kimmel did some on-the-street interviews on Hollywood Blvd. with people about the “Sequester.”These aren’t low-information voters; they are no-information voters. They are clueless. They vote in terms of race, feelings, and what other people are telling them. Actually, it’s worse.The most frightening part of what you’ll see in this three-minute video is how they go on even after admitting that they don’t know anything about what the Sequester is.One day these people will have children. The gene pool is beginning to grow algae.We are witnessing a world that is depicted in the 2006 film Idiocracy where “advertising, commercialism, and...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Less than two months into his second term, President Barack Obama's approval rating has dropped and Americans blame him and his fellow Democrats almost as much as his Republican opponents for a fiscal mess. A Reuters/Ipsos online poll released on Wednesday showed 43 percent of people approve of Obama's handling of his job, down 7 percentage points from February 19.

    Hi Folks, This is a quick blog from the road. I am on the west coast promoting our first national TV ad confronting Obama's tyranny. Since the election, Obama's fundamental transformation of America has accelerated to warp speed. Every day we are hit with a new crisis, equaling a new excuse to attack and eliminate another one of our God given freedoms. Low-info voters swallow Obama and the Democrat's lies hook, line and sinker. So, I got this text from my brother David who lives on the east coast early this morning at 6am. Early morning and late night calls...
