  • Sorry, Bernie and AOC: Socialism has very few fans among voters, according to new poll

    Socialism may be the chic belief among some progressive Democrats and independents. American voters, however, give a very tepid review of socialism according to new Fox News poll. It found that only a quarter of registered U.S. voters them gave thumbs up to socialism — the economic ideology praised by Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vermont independent, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat. “Capitalism buries socialism,” said Fox News polling director Dana Blanton. “Despite the prominence of socialistic ideas and policy proposals in recent weeks, Americans are favorable toward the merits of the capitalistic system. And they’re bullish on the...

    One year after the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., the urgency for new gun restrictions has declined, but roughly half the country is concerned a mass shooting could happen at a school in their community, a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds. In the immediate aftermath of the mass shooting that killed 17 people on Valentine's Day, 71 percent of Americans said laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. Now, it's 51 percent. When it comes to whether stricter gun legislation should be an immediate priority for Congress, 42 percent say it should...

    Seventy-six percent of Americans who tuned in to President Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night approved of the speech he gave. Just 24 percent disapproved. As is often the case in State of the Union addresses, the people who watched tonight's speech leaned more towards the president's own party, at least compared to Americans overall. In the latest CBS national poll released last month, 25 percent of Americans identified themselves as Republicans. Among those who watched Tuesday night's address, that figure was 43 percent, and Republicans helped bolster the overall approval of the address. And while 97 percent...

    This is sad. Politico reports this morning that "polling suggests that when it comes to soaking the rich, the American public is increasingly on board." According to a poll they conducted along with Morning Consult, "76 percent of registered voters believe the wealthiest Americans should pay more in taxes." The story by Ben White also notes that a "recent Fox News survey showed that 70 percent of Americans favor raising taxes on those earning over $10 million — including 54 percent of Republicans." Even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's plan "to slap a 70 percent marginal rate on income earned over $10 million...

    By comparison, notes WaPo, the worst number Obama pulled during his first term when people were asked if they definitely wouldn’t vote for him for reelection was 46 percent. Coincidentally, or not coincidentally, his opponent in 2012 went on to win 47 percent of the national vote.So maybe this is a data point worth paying attention to.Some of the usual excuses for grim polls don’t apply in this case either. “It’s just one poll!” Actually, it’s not. Two weeks ago a PBS/NPR poll found nearly the same number, 57 percent, vowing they wouldn’t vote for Trump again. “It’s fake...

    I trust the president will receive this data dispassionately, coolly assessing the arguments for and against proceeding with a new shutdown to try to advance his border agenda.He’s never struck me as the type of guy to lunge at news just because it tells him what he wants to hear.And yet, some worry: Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale commissioned a survey taken during the final days of the shutdown which was conducted by respected GOP pollsters Neil Newhouse and Robert Blizzard. The poll, taken in 10 GOP-leaning House districts that Democrats won in the 2018 midterms, found that a...
  • Fake News Declares Kamala Harris a Front Runner Despite Polling in the Single Digits

    If loudly announcing that you're running makes you a "front runner", then the 2020 Dem field has a dozen front runners already. But that doesn't stop the Los Angeles Times from running a fake news article touting Senator Kamala Harris as a front runner. "Kamala Harris emerges as a 2020 front-runner, but is that a good thing?" is a typical media headline in that it assumes facts not in evidence and then jumps to the next hot take as a way of making it seem that the thing it's assuming must be true. Problem is that Harris tends to...

    Crowdpac, a nonpartisan firm dedicated to political data analysis, used federal campaign-contribution records dating to 1980 to estimate where various officials and donors fall on the political spectrum. It scored individual donors as being more liberal or conservative based on which candidates they gave to. Crowdpac CEO and cofounder Steve Hilton told Business Insider this donation data "is the heart of the Crowdpac data model" because its "research shows that campaign contributions are the best predictor of how a candidate will behave in office." Hilton explained that Crowdpac's main goal is to provide people "good objective, nonpartisan information about the...
  • Emerson Poll: Americans Want Better Border Enforcement By More Than 2:1; 66% Oppose Amnesty

    What if opposition among Americans to Donald Trump’s shutdown proposal isn’t about the border-wall funding? A new poll out from Emerson shows that 55% oppose the wall-for-DACA-extension made by the president on Saturday. What would they think if Trump offered full citizenship instead? Here’s your surprising Chart of the Day:Given the tenor of media coverage of “dreamers” and this standoff over the wall, this seems a little counter-intuitive. Looking at the polling results from Emerson, however, it makes sense. As it turns out, most voters want tougher enforcement, and Democrats find themselves on the fringe on this issue.Respondents overall...

    The good news: Americans agree that there is a national-security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac. The bad news: pretty much everything else in the poll. Not only do respondents approve of a Democratic plan to re-open most of the shuttered agencies in the government, a solid majority puts the blame for the standoff on Donald Trump, not Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer: American voters support 63 – 30 percent a Democratic proposal to reopen parts of the government that do not involve border security while negotiating funding for the Wall,...

    By a wide margin, more Americans blame President Trump and Republicans in Congress than congressional Democrats for the now record-breaking government shutdown, and most reject the president’s assertion that there is an illegal-immigration crisis on the southern border, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll. Support for building a wall on the border, which is the principal sticking point in the stalemate between the president and Democrats, has increased over the past year. Today, 42 percent say they support a wall, up from 34 percent last January. A slight majority of Americans (54 percent) oppose the idea, down from 63...

    President Trump's public support appears to be holding steady despite the partial government shutdown dragging on amid a stalemate over his demand for border wall funding. Trump's approval rating in the Hill-HarrisX polls has been relatively steady since September, remaining between 45 percent and 48 percent. "Despite a couple of polls being a little bit outside or perhaps a little bit of outliers, we've seen the president's approval rating generally consistent and in the low- to mid-forties," Mallory Newall, research director at Ipsos Public Affairs, said Friday during a panel discussion featured on Hill.TV's "What America's Thinking."

    Well, it’s Christmas Eve. For those of who are traveling today, hope you get to your respective family gatherings safely. In the meantime, on the political front, the Democrats have decided to shut down the government. They do not support border security. President Trump wants $5 billion for part of his wall. The Senate has adjourned and we could be in for a long showdown over this part of the spending package. Armageddon won’t come I assure you, but for those on the Left hoping that Trump’s approval ratings could take a hit—there are a few reason why it won’t...
