    Dignitas News Service ^ | July 7, 2014 | Paul M Winters
    In its recently released report titled Beyond Red vs. Blue: The Political Typology, the Pew Research Center has provided conservatives an excellent opportunity to utilize their findings to specifically target our message and utilize resources wisely to capture disaffected Democratic Party voters. The report is one of the most comprehensive analysis of the trends and attitudes which drive the voting decisions of various subsets of the American public. In what will be the first of a running series, Dignitas News Service will provide an overview of the report as well as detailed explanation of the classifications of voter which Pew...
  • Republicans Need to Get to Know Their Enemies on Income Inequality

    “Know thine enemy.” Uttered most famously a millennia and a half ago by famed warrior/philosopher Sun Tzu, the advice holds up well, even, and especially, when the battles are ideological. So what is the thinking behind the right’s utter refusal to actually engage with the left’s actual position on inequality? The Federalist’s Ben Domenech wants us to know that in reality, inequality doesn’t matter. Of course what “matters” is entirely subjective. It would make more sense for Ben to try to persuade those who think it does why they shouldn’t. But that would require that Ben understood why inequality matters...

    The Pew Research Center just released a report this week based on 2012 data which details the use of religious police to enforce what Pew calls “religious norms” and, in one case, “social restrictions.” The data, and the graphic that accompanies the introductory article, show that 17 nations employ religious police. What the article does not mention is that 15 of those 17 nations are Islamic.

    When it comes to increasing partisanship in the United States, it seems no issue is immune. And that includes evolution. A new Pew Research Center poll shows a widening political gap over theories about how humans came to be, with Republicans growing increasingly skeptical about the idea that humans evolved over time. …

    <p>Public’s Views on Human Evolution evolution2013-1According to a new Pew Research Center analysis, six-in-ten Americans (60%) say that “humans and other living things have evolved over time,” while a third (33%) reject the idea of evolution, saying that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.” The share of the general public that says that humans have evolved over time is about the same as it was in 2009, when Pew Research last asked the question.</p>

    In 2009, the gap between the share of Republicans and Democrats who believed in evolution was just 10 percentage points, 54 percent and 64 percent, respectively. Last year, that gap widened to a whopping 24 points because as the percentage of Democrats who believed in evolution inched up to 67 percent, the percentage of Republicans believing so plummeted to 43 percent. Now, more Republicans believe that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time” than believe in evolution. This sad news comes via a survey released this week by the Pew Research...

    NY Times' Terrorist Tip Sheet ^ | August 25, 2006 | LAURIE GOODSTEIN
    A new poll shows that fewer Americans view the Republican Party as “friendly to religion” than a year ago, with the decline particularly steep among Catholics and white evangelical Protestants — constituencies at the core of the Republicans’ conservative Christian voting bloc. The survey found that the proportion of Americans who say the Republican Party is friendly to religion fell 8 percentage points in the last year, to 47 percent from 55 percent. Among Catholics and white evangelical Protestants, the decline was 14 percentage points. The Democratic Party suffers from the perception of an even more drastic religion deficit, but...

    WASHINGTON, June 13 — As the war in Iraq continues for a fourth year, the global image of America has slipped further, even among people in some countries closely allied with the United States, a new opinion poll has found. Favorable views of the United States dropped sharply over the past year in Spain, where only 23 percent said they had a positive opinion, down from 41 percent last year, according to the survey. It was done in 15 nations, including the United States, this spring by the Washington-based Pew Research Center. Other countries where positive views dropped significantly include...
  • Most U.S. Residents Support Abortion Rights With Some Restrictions

    About 65% of US residents support the Supreme Court's decision in... Roe v. Wade -- the 1973 decision in which the court struck down state bans on abortion -- but 73% support some restrictions on abortion rights, according to the results of a study released on Wednesday by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, the Long Island Newsday reports (Eisenberg, Long Island Newsday, 8/4). According to the study, which was based on the responses to a July 13-17 survey of 1,502 U.S. adults and a July 7-17 survey of 2,000 adults, 35% of respondents believe abortion...

    Last week the Pew Research Center came out with a study of the American electorate that crystallized something I've been sensing for a long time: rich people are boring, but poor people are interesting. The Pew data demonstrated that people at the top of the income scale are divided into stable, polar camps. There are the educated-class liberals - antiwar, pro-choice, anti-tax cuts - who make up about 19 percent of the electorate, according to Pew. And there are business-class conservatives - pro-war, pro-life, pro-tax cut - who make up 11 percent of voters. These affluent people are pretty well...

    President George W. Bush holds a slight edge over Senator John Kerry in the final days of Campaign 2004. The Pew Research Center's final pre-election poll of 1,925 likely voters, conducted Oct. 27-30, finds Bush with a three-point edge (48% to 45% for Kerry); Ralph Nader draws 1%, and 6% are undecided. The poll finds indications that turnout will be significantly higher than in the two previous presidential elections, especially among younger people. Yet Bush gets the boost Republican candidates typically receive when the sample is narrowed from the base of 2,408 registered voters to those most likely to vote....

    Organization Will Rely More on Polls Than on Expert Opinions The Pew Charitable Trusts is getting into the think tank business. The group, which has become increasingly influential in public policy debates, will announce a major reorganization today that will bring seven of its public information projects under one roof and a new name: the Pew Research Center. The center will host various ongoing Pew projects examining, among other topics, the significance of the Internet, the role of religion in public life, the growing Hispanic population, the news media and the way in which the rest of the world views...

    AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN ^ | Sunday, April 4, 2004 (In Apr 8 print edition) | By Bill Bishop
    Growing gaps found from county to county in presidential race By Bill Bishop AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Sunday, April 4, 2004 The assumption since the 2000 election has been that the United States is evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats. Nationally, this is still true. At the local level, however, that 50-50 split disappears. In its place is a country so out of balance, so politically divided, that there is little competition in presidential contests between the parties in most U.S. counties, according to an Austin American-Statesman study of election returns since 1948. American democracy is based on the continuous exchange of...
  • Jews blamed more for death of Christ after Passion

    The percentage of Americans who say Jews were responsible for Christ's death is rising according to a poll taken since the release of Mel Gibson's film "The Passion of the Christ." The poll released by the Pew Research Center in Washington is the first statistical evidence that the film's box-office success may be associated with an increase in anti-Jewish feeling, although social scientists cautioned that cause and effect are not clear. As Christians prepare to celebrate Easter week and the Jewish holiday of Passover also approaches, the poll could sharpen the focus on what some perceive as the film's anti-Semitism....

    Every great enterprise has a natural competitor. Hertz has Avis. Coke has Pepsi. GM has Ford. And the Gallup Poll has ... well, we’re not sure. But last week, a potential competitor staked its claim to being the rightful alternative to Gallup. Once, the Harris Poll constituted the requisite competition for Gallup in the field of public polling. But Lou Harris’s organization has gone headlong into Internet-based polling and lost its competitive edge. The major news-organization polls, such as those by The New York Times, offer an alternative perspective, but other media don’t like to give them widespread coverage, limiting...

    THE MEDIA Americans want facts and flagsBy Mark Jurkowitz, Globe Staff, 7/14/2003 The American public may want its coverage of the war on terror straight down the middle, but it wants it delivered by people who share its patriotism. That's the finding of a new Pew Research Center survey of 1,200 Americans and their media habits and views. It comes amid an ongoing debate within journalism circles about whether embedded reporters, flag logos on TV screens, and the undiscovered weapons of mass destruction in Iraq suggest American news organizations were too jingoistic or complacent in their coverage of the war...
