    In Iowa, when J. Ann Selzer talks, people listen.Many surprising findings in a new survey by Ms. Selzer, Iowa’s most respected pollster, are sure to be topics of elated or anxious conversations on campaign conference calls on Monday morning.Among the findings, released Saturday night: Hillary Rodham Clinton’s lead over Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has shrunk to just 7 percentage points; Donald J. Trump’s favorability with Republicans has sharply increased, suggesting he has room to increase his lead; and Democrats are largely untroubled about Mrs. Clinton’s email controversy – suggesting her vulnerabilities are deeper.With both parties’ nominating races entering a...

    Political correctness is one of the biggest arguments in favor of–and against–the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump. How do Americans feel about it? A new Rasmussen poll shows a clear majority opposed. From Rasmussen Reports: Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump during the first pre-primary debate reiterated a point he’s made throughout his campaign that “the big problem this country has is being politically correct.” Most Americans strongly agree with that sentiment.

    A little comments food-fight starter for a slow Friday news cycle. Even your friendly neighborhood atheist blogger is surprised by this result: My memory of youthful Christian lessons is rusty but I do vaguely recall something about rich men and heaven and camels and the eye of a needle. Then again, there’s a difference between praying for a Lamborghini and praying for a pay raise to help make ends meet. Wanting more wealth doesn’t necessarily make you greedy.The question: Why are born-again Christians more likely than those who don’t describe themselves as born again to tie wealth to faith?...

    We noted early this month that Donald Trump's lead in the polling emerged quickly and ferociously — but that it was hardly unprecedented. In the 2012 cycle, both Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich saw similar surges into the lead, only to watch those leads recede just as rapidly a few weeks later. When we looked at this a few weeks ago, the comparison looked like this: Trump, like Perry and Gingrich, topped out at a bit above a 10-percentage-point lead. But then that lead held. Here's what that graph looks like now: We've increased the scale, because we wanted to...

    It's been a long-standing tradition at the Iowa State Fair, but now you can cast your kernels for presidential candidates at the Minnesota State Fair. The early front runners in the unscientific poll at the Minnesota Republican Party booth are Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. "Anybody can stop by our booth and and cast a vote for whoever their favorite candidate is," GOP Party Chair Keith Downey said. If you make a donation or sign up to support the GOP, voters get a small cup full of corn kernels they can distribute among as many of the candidates...

    The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul's closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%. Just 7% said they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a record low since November 2013. Those results show just how far both Trump -- now the Republican front-runner -- and Bush -- the old one -- have come. Bush led national polls for much of the first half of 2015, but was quickly dislodged by Trump, after...

What was really startling, though, was the results of the “open ended” questions about several of the candidates. Most specifically, the massively leading, top of the list responses for Hillary Clinton have to be giving her team nightmares. (Connecticut Post… emphasis added) Clinton leads the Democratic field with 45 percent, down from 55 percent July 30, with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 22 percent...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Donald Trump is pulling away from the pack in the race for the party's U.S. presidential nomination, widening his lead over his closest rivals in the past week, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Friday. Republican voters show no signs they are growing weary of the brash real estate mogul, who has dominated political headlines and the 17-strong Republican presidential field with his tough talk about immigration and insults directed at his political rivals. The candidates are vying to be nominated to represent their party in the November 2016 general election. Nearly 32 percent of Republicans surveyed...

And now, for the first time in CNN/ORC polling, his gains among the Republican Party have boosted him enough to be competitive in the general election. The poll finds Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by just 6 points, a dramatic tightening since July. Trump is the one of three Republican candidates who have been matched against Clinton multiple times in CNN/ORC polling to significantly whittle the gap between...

Eighty percent (80%) support the deportation of all illegal immigrants convicted of a felony; only 11% are opposed. [Snip] Just 34% favor President Obama’s plan to protect up to five million illegal immigrants from deportation. Most voters continue to think instead that the United States is not aggressive enough in deporting those who are here illegally.

Of fair goers, 46.85 percent were most excited about food, compared to livestock (16.63 percent), the butter cow (14.29 percent) and political speeches (8.73 percent).
