    Not by one or two points either. The lead in Tennessee is five while the lead in Arizona is seven.Both states are supposed to be gimmes for the GOP, but CNN notes that each happens to be the home of a vocal Trump critic in the Senate who’s now retiring. Tennessee is Bob Corker country whereas Arizona is the home of Jeff Flake. I wonder how many Trump-skeptic Republican voters in each state have taken the senators’ criticisms of POTUS to heart and concluded that the best message they can send to the White House is to cross over...

    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) The prognosis for President Donald Trump and his party was grim.</p> <p>In a post-Labor Day briefing at the White House, a top Republican pollster told senior staff that the determining factor in the election wouldnt be the improving economy or the steady increase in job creation. It would be how voters feel about Trump. And the majority of the electorate, including a sizable percentage of Republican-leaning voters, doesnt feel good about the president, according to a presentation from pollster Neil Newhouse that spanned dozens of pages.</p>

    Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) has taken a narrow lead over Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) in the Senate race to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) according to a new ABC15OH Predictive Insights poll released Wednesday. It is McSally's first lead in the poll that comes just under eight weeks before the midterm elections. The poll shows McSally overtaking Sinema with 49 percent of the likely vote compared to Sinemas 46 percent, a difference that falls within the margin of error. Sinema had led by 6 points in the poll earlier this year. Both candidates enjoy positive favorability ratings by similar...

    Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport said on Tuesday that Americans have come to reject the idea that President Trump did anything criminal with regards to Russian interference in the 2016 election. "A lot of Americans have dismissed the idea that he [Trump] colluded to the extent that he did something illegal," Newport told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." "A lot more Americans would say he did something wrong, but it wasn't illegal," he continued. Newport was referring to a Gallup poll released last week that found that only 29 percent of Americans said they believed Trump acted illegally in...

    WASHINGTON (AP) The rallying cry from some liberals to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement isnt a likely winner this election year, as a new poll finds only a quarter of Democrats support eliminating the agency that carried out the Trump administrations policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. Some potential Democratic presidential contenders, such as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, backed getting rid of ICE in response to the separations. Others, including Sen. Kamala Harris of California, urged a rethinking of the agency, but stopped short of calling for its abolition. President Donald Trump has seized on...

    After a week that saw President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman convicted on eight counts of fraud and his former lawyer plead guilty to felony campaign finance charges, the president's job approval rating remains virtually unchanged, new polling from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal shows. But the stability in Trump's approval rating also comes as more than half of voters say he has not been honest and truthful regarding the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. And fewer than three-in-ten voters are convinced that Trump himself is not implicated in the wrongdoing of the six of his...

    Pennsylvania, a state that helped put President Donald Trump in the White House, isnt too keen on the presidents tariff push, a new NBC News/Marist poll finds, as a near majority fears that the ongoing trade war will ultimately damage the U.S. economy. Forty-five percent of Pennsylvania adults believe that tariffs and other import barriers will raise costs of consumer goods and hurt the countrys economy. By comparison, 27 percent believe they will protect American jobs and help the economy. The administrations trade policy is unpopular across virtually all demographic groups in the NBC/Marist poll the only groups where...

    The Hill ^ | 08/24/18 | Megan Keller
    A vast majority 70 percent of Americans in a new poll supports "Medicare for all," also known as a single-payer health-care system. The ReutersIpsos survey found 85 percent of Democrats said they support the policy along with 52 percent of Republicans. Medicare for all has been in the headlines after a study by the libertarian-leaning Mercatus Center at George Mason University found it would lead to $32.6 trillion increase in federal spending over a 10-year period. The studys author, Charles Blahous, wrote in The Wall Street Journal earlier this month that even doubling taxes would not cover the...

    On August 20, Emerson Polls released a poll for the New Mexico U.S. Senate race. The results: incumbent Democrat Martin Heinrich 39%, Libertarian Gary Johnson 21%, Mick Rich 11%, undecided 30%.

In 1970 in New York, the Republican nominee, Charles Goodell, placed third behind the Conservative and the Democrat. Also in 1970 in Virginia, the Republican nominee, Ray Garland, placed third behind independent Harry F. Byrd, Jr., and Democrat George Rawlings....

    We are still all Americans, no matter what the liberal left tries to tell us in order to divvy us up into malleable, moldable little voters. For democrats, its one of the only ways in which they can galvanize support for their doomed party. They infiltrate the youth, push progressive ideals and tribalism among the fringes, and then go after those newly created segments of voters in order to shore up the support they need to remain in power. The adverse side effects are obvious: A rapidly radicalizing liberal base that is looking to tear apart the Constitutional fabric of...

The poll also weighted heavily for a significant Democrat turnout that outpaces previous Democratic waves. The poll suggested that Democrats will have a five-point turnout advantage over...
