    Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.), an ObamaCare voter running for re-election in a conservative state, has to this point shown remarkable political resilience. But a new Fox News poll suggests that her days in the Senate may be drawing to a close. The survey of 617 likely voters in Louisiana shows Rep. Bill Cassidy (R., La.) leading Ms. Landrieu by 13 percentage points. The telephone poll, conducted Sept. 14-16, finds that 51% of Louisiana voters prefer Mr. Cassidy as their next senator, versus 38% who favor the incumbent. This may be the result of blistering recent television ads showing the...

    Immigration: Three in five Americans say the tens of thousands of minors who have crossed the border "should be ordered to leave the U.S." What about that do the Congress and president not understand? The latest IBD/TIPP Poll, conducted June 24 to 29, asked those Americans who are following the story what to do about the influx of unaccompanied minors. Those saying that the government should order them to leave totaled 60%. Breaking that sizeable majority down, 64% of independents wanted the minors sent home, as did 40% of Democrats and 80% of Republicans. There were 879 Americans surveyed in...
  • Poll: 65 Percent Disapprove Of Obama's Immigration Policies

    Two in three Americans are displeased with President Barack Obama’s handling of immigration, according to a recent Gallup poll. While 65 percent disapprove, only 31 percent are pleased with the president’s immigration policies. This brings his overall approval to the one of the lowest ratings since the survey's inception in 2010. Both Democratic and Independent approval ratings have dropped by eight percentage points since August 2013. Additionally, Republican angst has reached an all time high. Ninety percent of the GOP disapprove of Obama’s immigration tactics. Every political party seems to be acknowledging the fact that the Obama Administraiton has failed...

    HATTIESBURG, Mississippi — A new poll from WPA Research shows conservative Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel has shot up to an eight-point lead, outside the margin of error, over Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) a little over a week from the runoff election. The poll of 500 likely GOP primary runoff voters has McDaniel leading Cochran 49 percent to 41 percent, with 10 percent undecided. McDaniel beat Cochran in the primary about two weeks ago, getting 1,300 more votes. The poll was conducted June 9 to June 10 and has a margin of error of 4.4 percent. Now, heading into the...
  • Poll: Even as Obama’s Approval Recovers, Democrats Are Doomed

    The NBC/WSJ poll is the first in a little while that's found any glimmer of optimism for the Obama administration. Unlike this week's Washington Post poll, it finds a marginal improvement in the president's approval rating (to 44 percent) and slightly less anger at the ACA (down to 46 percent disapproval). But like every poll, it finds the largely white, somewhat older Republican vote far more likely to turn out this year. Among all voters, there's a 45/45 split on which party is preferred to win the election. Among likely voters, there's a 53–38 advantage for the Republicans. It gets...
  • Rasmussen Poll Shows Bevin Outperforming McConnell Against Democratic Challenger

    Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell still maintains a comfortable lead over his primary opponent, businessman Matt Bevin. But while most polls show McConnell leading Bevin by a wide margin, the latest Rasmussen survey shows him doing better than McConnell would in a general-election matchup against Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes. (Previous polls have showed them performing similarly against her.) In a head-to-head race, Bevin leads Grimes by four points, 40 to 36 percent; McConnell is running even with Grimes, with each commanding 42 percent of the vote. Republicans will select their nominee in a May 20 primary. McConnell remains the...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell runs dead even with Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at the 2014 U.S. Senate race in Kentucky. But McConnell’s GOP primary rival Matt Bevin leads Grimes by six points. (snip)
