  • Poll Finds 70 Percent of Republicans Approve of Trump’s Handling of Russia, Even After Helsinki

    Slate ^ | July 17, 2018 | Elliot Hannon
    A new tracking poll from Reuters/ Ipsos Tuesday showed that rank-and-file Republicans not only continue to support President Trump, but refuse to believe he’s doing anything wrong. The most galling number from the survey is: 71 percent of Republicans approve of Trump’s handling of Russia. That support runs counter to much of the leadership of their own party, at minimum during the Helsinki summit. The poll was put into the field following the summit, so it should pick up any quiver of movement, but there still has not been a dip in GOP support for Trump’s Putin-loving approach. Overall, more...

    The Bristol Herald Courier ^ | July 11, 2018 | Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post
    President Donald Trump, more than any modern president, freely expresses his racist views — whether it is calling Mexican immigrants rapists, asserting that immigrants “infest” America, saying neo-Nazis include some “very fine people,” preferring Norwegian immigrants to those from “sh--hole” countries or associating immigrants with crime in public and in private. (In May, The Post reported on an episode in April 2017: “Trump reminded them the crowds loved his rhetoric on immigrants along the campaign trail. Acting as if he were at a rally, he recited a few made-up Hispanic names and described potential crimes they could have committed, such...
  • Dem pollster: Clinton showed that being against Trump is not enough to win

    The Hill ^ | July 11, 2018 | Julia Manchester
    Democratic pollster Carly Cooperman on Wednesday pointed to Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential bid to argue that opposing President Trump alone is not enough to win an election. "With Hillary Clinton, we saw that just being against Trump isn't enough," Cooperman, who is a partner at Schoen Consulting, told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." “There is so much anger and passion in the Democratic Party right now to come out against Trump, but I do not think that will be enough," she continued. “The Democrats need more than just that, and they need to have ideas that they're articulating...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton underperformed relative to Barack Obama in 2012 among most demographic groups, according to new research published in the Journal of Political Marketing. “People have long been interested in how different demographic groups vote in elections. The role of demographics in 2016 received a lot of attention from the campaigns, media outlets, etc,” said study author Aaron C. Weinschenk of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. “In part, I think the fascination stemmed from the fact that the electorate in 2016 was the most diverse U.S. electorate in history and many people thought this would be...

    Vox ^ | July 5, 2018 | Ezra Klein
    On June 25, Axios’s Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei took readers inside Donald Trump’s “winning, cynical plan.” They argued that “the more President Trump does, says and tweets outrageous things, the more his critics go bananas and the better he does in the polls.” The evidence for this was that Trump had hit 45 percent in Gallup’s presidential approval tracker — a personal high for him, though he’s since slipped back to 42 percent. More impressively, Trump’s approval among Republicans is hovering around 90 percent, and special counsel Robert Mueller’s disapproval among Republicans was up to 53 percent. “It’s arguably...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 25, 2018
    The economy’s booming, but America remains sorely divided. Would we all be better off with a second President Clinton in the White House instead? Voters don’t think so. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 40% of Likely U.S. Voters believe America would be better off today if Hillary Clinton had been elected president instead of Donald Trump. A plurality (47%) disagrees and says the country would not be better off. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Predictably, 74% of Democrats think the country would be better off under...

    The president’s economic approval rating has hit an all-time high since he took office, a new survey shows. According to the CNBC All America Economic Survey, the majority of Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the economy. The economic approval rating went up 6 points, placing it at 51 percent with 36 percent of the public disapproving. Fifty-four percent said the economy is good or excellent, the highest recorded by CNBC in the 10 years of the survey....
  • Rick Scott vs Bill Nelson for Senate

    06/23/2018 12:18:12 AM PDT · by Doreener · 24 replies
    Rick Scott is the current Republican Governor of Florida. He was first elected governor in 2010 and was re-elected in 2014. Governor Scott has led the charge to get Florida back to work over the past eight years. Scott was ranked as the 20th most conservative of the country's 30 Republican governors in an April 2013 analysis by Nate Silver of the New York Times. Prevented by term limits from running for governor again, Scott is seeking election to the U.S. Senate as a FL US senate republican candidate. Gov. Scott entered the race on April 9, 2018, posing the...

    KHSL-TV ^ | June 15, 2018 | CNN Wire
    Most American adults say that the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un was a good idea, according to a Monmouth poll released Thursday. The seven-in-10 who say it's a good idea is up from 63% in late April, including 93% of Republicans, 74% of independents, and 49% of Democrats. Only 20% say it was a bad idea. The recent poll also shows 46% disapprove of the job Trump is doing as President, perhaps a side effect of the good feelings people have about his efforts on North Korea. The last time Trump's number for...

    The Republican Party is Donald Trump's party. If there were any doubts about this, recent polling - which shows the president with near record levels of backing from Republican voters - confirms the fact. According to a recent Gallup Poll, Mr Trump's support among members of his own party at the 500-day mark of his presidency sits at 87%, second only to George W Bush's 96%, which came nine months after the September 11 World Trade Center attacks. A handful of other presidents since the survey started after World War II - George HW Bush, John F Kennedy, Dwight D...

    Monday, the Washington Post surveyed a new book, a memo, and a detailed report for the Post itself, all of which take a look at swing voting patterns in parts of the country that went for President Obama in 2008 and 2012 and then shifted to President Trump in 2016. The Post attempts to synthesize the findings of all three items and concludes that people in these parts of the country feel a lack of respect both for themselves and for the president they voted for: Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg, who helped orchestrate Bill Clinton’s 1992 victory, has obsessively studied...

    The Trump administration on Monday celebrated moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the capital city of Jerusalem. But ever since the move was announced in December, it has been condemned in the Middle East and around the world. The Arab League called the embassy relocation a “blatant attack on the feelings of Arabs and Muslims” and a “grave violation of the rules of international law” that could destabilize the region. British Prime Minister Theresa May said, “We disagree with the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital before...
  • Black Support For Trump Is Rising Into The Danger Zone For Democrats

    The Federalist ^ | May 11, 2018 | M. Joseph Sheppard
    If black support for Trump gets into double figures, the Democratic Party will have to look for different themes than Russia, Stormy Daniels, and other such nonsense. The latest YouGov/Economist poll (May 6-8), one of a few that comprehensively breaks down support by ethnicity, has some frightening news for the Democratic Party. While President Trump’s approval holds steady among registered voters at 41 percent, his support among blacks in this poll is striking. If it holds for 2020, it could be devastating for Democrats. Among African-Americans, 16 percent approve of Trump, 10 percent are not sure, and 75 percent disapprove....

    MSN ^ | May 8, 2018 | Grace Sparks, CNN
    A Gallup poll released on Monday has President Donald Trump's approval rating at 42%. He has not had an approval rating above 40% in Gallup's poll since it hit 41% in late May 2017, which was immediately after he fired James Comey as FBI director. CNN's recent polling has the President's job approval at 41%, no different than CNN's previous polling in March. However, his approval on specific issues like the economy, foreign trade and immigration have all increased since March by several points. While the President's approval ratings have remained stagnant in Gallup polling and the uptick could be...

    CNN Politics ^ | May 7, 2018 | Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director
    President Donald Trump's approval rating is holding steady in a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, but his numbers on handling several key issues are climbing, as almost 6 in 10 say things in the country are going well. Overall, 41% approve of the President's work, and 53% disapprove. Those numbers are about the same as at the end of March. On the issues, however, Trump's numbers are climbing. Approval is up 4 points on the economy to 52%, the first time it's topped 50% since March 2017; up 5 points on foreign trade to 43% approval; and his numbers...

    The political future of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party over the next two years really comes down to one question: Do traditional measures of popularity mean anything when it comes to Trump? If they do, the Republican Party and Trump could be in major trouble. Usually, we wouldn't even think to ask whether a president with around a 40% approval rating would end up hurting his political party. Yet Trump did something that was seemingly impossible in 2016: He won the presidency, despite being the most unpopular candidate since at least 1952 and with Americans seeming to like...

    .Two polls - one internal and another independent - released on Monday show a tight race in the marquee match-up between Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and her likely GOP opponent Josh Hawley. Hawley's campaign is touting a memo with an internal poll showing Missouri's Senate race in a dead heat. The poll finds the state's attorney general ahead of McCaskill by a razor-thin margin, 47 percent to 46 percent. Seven percent of voters are undecided.

    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...

    The former chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee cautioned today that his party is "whistling past the political graveyard" if not concerned about midterm elections. So far, 27 House GOP incumbents have declared that they're not seeking re-election, compared to 15 Democrats. "When the American people give you a majority, the control of the House, the Senate and the presidency, they expect you to do something with it," Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) told CNN, saying the party racked up "minor" wins until a major score with tax reform. "And I think over time that will help us a great...
