    After the recent shooting on campus in Florida, Florida Carry quickly made the case that the campus was a "gun free" or "defenseless victim" zone, and that removing the prohibition on legal guns would make campus safer. From new4jax.com: Friday said several lawsuits are pending against Florida universities that refuse to allow students the right to carry weapons in class. In states like Idaho, Colorado, Utah, Oregon and Kansas, Friday said, school shooting statistics are remarkably lower than the rest of the nation. "Every state that allows law-abiding students to carry guns on campus, every one of those schools...

    California Poll: Do you think self-defense is good enough cause to be issued a concealed weapons permit? This is a straight yes or no question, and it is getting a clear response. It is about 6-1 in favor of second amendment supporters at this time. The question is based on the resolution of the Peruta decision, which says, in a straightforward way, that the second amendment protects the right of a person to carry arms outside of the home for self defense. The result of the decision is that California permit applicants will not be denied a permit at...

Democrats are battling to try and save the Senate majority, while hoping to prevent more losses in the House, which the GOP controls by a 234 to 201 margin.

    The midterm elections will take place one week from today, and so far the arc of the sixth-year midterm has provided few surprises in national polling, including today’s from the Washington Post and ABC News. Driven by a strong sense of disgruntlement, a majority of likely voters want a Republican Congress to deal with an ineffectual President Barack Obama. Mainly, they want competence to return to the federal government: Driving attitudes is a pervasive sense of a country in trouble. Overwhelming majorities say the country is badly off-track and give the economy negative ratings. Economic expectations are little better...

    Every national poll by every recognized polling organization shows that conservatives dramatically outnumber liberals in America. For a covertly leftist establishment media, complete with organs of subtle propaganda and selective misinformation, the best strategy for handling the uncomfortable fact of a conservative majority in America is to hide or at least contort it. Treating conservatives like a despised minority is the very heart of leftist demonology. The left purports to represent America and claims vast powers because it is the champion of ordinary people. Terms like radical right wing and extreme conservative are the essence of leftist rhetoric. It is...

He authorized the call-up of National Guard members and reservists for possible duty in West Africa. However, he has so far rejected a call for a ban on incoming flights from countries with Ebola outbreaks, as called for by some Republicans. He said a ban could result in people trying to hide where they were coming from and thus becoming less likely to be screened.

But this one was considered unusual, because it revealed a truth that scared the American Left to their very core: Americans dont appear to trust government to solve their problems anymore. As with every poll, interpretation is dependent on whether we trust the questions to have been asked objectively (we dont), whether the respondents were given a comprehensive and clear array of possible answers to choose (they never...
