  • Latest Harvard-Harris poll holds Maalox Moments for Dems: Here’s what the media slipped by us

    The latest Harvard-Harris poll has nothing but bad news for Democrats. The chances are you didn’t hear about this because you and I were not supposed to know what the results were. In spite non-stop attacks, Donald Trump’s approvals is up to 47% which is +2 in a month. Trump is proving that, whatever doesn’t kill him (and there doesn’t seem to be anything that can) has made him stronger. By 69/ 31 Americans see the economy as strong. By 68/26 Americans are saying their personal financial situation is strong and improving. Trump’s approval on creating jobs is much higher...

    President Trump on Thursday expressed optimism about the Republican Party's poll numbers as the GOP erases deficits in a number of generic ballot surveys. "The Republican Party is starting to show very big numbers. People are starting to see what is being done. Results are speaking loudly. North Korea and our greatest ever economy are leading the way!" Trump tweeted. ETC...

    United States presidential candidate John McCain now retains a lead over Barack Obama in several polls conducted in the past few days. Both Zogby International and Rasmussen Reports have McCain with a slight, but not statistically significant lead. The most recent Gallup tracking poll has McCain with a statistical lead of 5.0 percent. The Day to Day Politics Poll Average also has a slight, but not statistically significantly lead of 0.4% for McCain. Obama had a 6.0 percent lead in the Day to Day Politics Poll Average after the Democratic National Convention, but now is trailing after the Republican National...

    There has been much talk lately of a huge blue wave coming our way in November. One of those talking points is that Democrats keep winning special elections, and that part is true as since Jan 2017 to today the Democrats have won over many key special elections nationwide. However it looks like we might buck that trend in Massachusetts, check out this local State Representative Race happening in Attleboro. The election is on April 3rd and the GOP candidate is up slightly. The point is, if the GOP can win in Massachusetts - this blue trend might not really...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 14, 2018 | Brent Scher
    Republicans are citing numerous problems at polling sites in Tuesday's special election in Pennsylvania, which remains too close to officially call but appears to be trending toward an extremely narrow victory for Democrat Conor Lamb. [Snip] Among the listed concerns are "miscalibrated" voting machines in Allegheny County, the only county of four in the district that went for Lamb, according to the source, who said there have been many reports of voters who intended to vote for Saccone ending up casting a ballot for Lamb. Furthermore, Republicans say their attorneys were ejected from polling sites as the absentee ballots were...

    If liberals would quit acting so crazy, maybe they would have a chance of making significant gains in Congress in the upcoming midterm elections and achieve their goal of eroding support for President Donald Trump. But it's not gonna happen. Liberals' extremism and outrageousness and conservatives' failure to stop them created the conditions leading to Trump's election. Now the left's unrepentant persistence is sustaining and even increasing Trump's support. Please let liberals' learning disability continue. They freak out over everything Trump does, apparently not realizing that their over-the-top reactions are way more unreasonable than anything Trump is doing. At a...

    Nearly half of those who watched President Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday reacted "very" positively to the speech, according to a snap CNN/SSRS poll. According to that survey, the results of which were announced on-air on CNN, 48 percent of respondents said they had a "very positive" reaction to the speech — Trump's first since taking office. Only 22 percent said they had a "somewhat positive" reaction to the speech, while 29 percent reacted negatively. The results of that poll came less than two hours after Trump finished delivering his speech, in which he touted the tax...

    “If I pack up my toys and go home, there are people in red MAGA hats who would be saying, ‘Don’t let the door hit you on your way out.’” Kristen Soltis Anderson is losing faith in her party. And that should trigger alarms for Republican leaders concerned about the GOP’s long-term health. Anderson is a smart and telegenic young Republican pollster. She has specialized in studying how the party can improve its anemic performance among the Millennial generation, which will pass the right-leaning baby boomers to become the largest generation of eligible voters in 2018. Now she is wondering...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 2017 | Scott Rasmussen
    Four Confederate monuments were removed from New Orleans earlier this month following complaints that they celebrate racism, and now the city of Baltimore has plans to follow suit. But most voters oppose taking away these remnants of the past even if they are unpopular with some. While proposals have been made to get rid of monuments such as the Jefferson Memorial and the carving on Stone Mountain in Georgia because they honor men who practiced or defended slavery, just 19% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States should erase symbols of its past history that are out of line...

    One of the most common items of “disinformation” in the media these days is the assertion that Donald Trump’s presidency is drawing negative reviews from the American voter. The Guardian, for example, reports that Trump’s approval ratings “fall off a cliff” and goes on to wonder why he “sees no reason to course-correct.” But, the fact is that Trump’s poll numbers are steady, fluctuating in a narrow range, and are higher than Obama’s were during most of his tenure. Rasmussen, the only pollster who surveys “likely voters” shows the marks of a successful presidency:Rasmussen: Trump’s Job Approval JULY 2 =...

    Steve Scalise suffered a physical assault on June 14 as a result of being shot by a liberal Bernie Sanders supporter. However, few know that three years ago Scalise politely endured a verbal assault by enraged Hollywood liberals in the entertainment business. It was an example of the increasing rejection of civil discourse by the left leading ultimately to the recent baseball field violence we saw a few days ago. A June 16 Hollywood Reporter article by Paul Bond reveals the incident at the Los Angeles home of pollster Frank Luntz who held a soiree in the hopes of bringing together...

    The Washington Times ^ | June 17, 2017 | Stephen Dinan and Seth McLaughlin
    Pollsters had major trouble spotting the surge of support for Corey Stewart in Virginia’s Republican governor’s primary this week, suggesting they still can’t figure out how to successfully survey Trump supporters. Mr. Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors and onetime Trump campaign chairman in Virginia, ran as the Trump figure in the race, pursuing an anti-establishment message that centered around a tough approach to illegal immigration. Polling — which was strikingly infrequent — showed Mr. Stewart failing to crack 20 percent support, trailing Ed Gillespie, the putative front-runner, by as much as 27 percent. In the...

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove. This is the first time the president’s overall approval rating has hit the 50% mark since late April. His approval rating has ranged from a high of 59% in late January shortly after he took office to a low of 42% in early April. The latest figures include 31% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11. (see...

    A telephone survey seeking opinions about the expansion of I-70 through east Denver is generating irate protests from some respondents, who say the survey seems designed to elicit positive responses about the purported benefits of the $1.8 billion project."It was one of the most one-sided push polls I ever listened to," Larry Patchett, a production technician for public television, wrote in a complaint to CDOT. "The entire thing was just a series of opportunities to validate your suppositions and PR spin on the I-70 Ditch project." The project, which would replace a crumbling six-lane viaduct with a below-grade, partially covered...
