  • Reuters Tracking Poll: GOP Now In The Lead In Our Congressional Ballot Tracking Poll

    For the first time in at least two years, a major pollster has Democrats trailing in the midterms — at least for a day. When last we looked at the Reuters tracking poll, Democrats’ lead in the generic congressional ballot question had dwindled down to a single point. Yesterday, their five-day rolling average finally crossed the red Rubicon, as this graphic from polling editor Chris Kahn demonstrates, following up with another look at the same data today: Not just “as likely,” but slightly more likely, 38.1% to 36.7%. According to RealClearPolitics aggregation, it would be the first time that any...

    Nearly 2 in 3 Americans think the nation’s economy is in good shape, and most of them believe President’s Trump’s policies are at least somewhat responsible for that. More Republicans rate the economy positively than do Democrats. As Congressional primaries continue and Americans look ahead six months to their midterm votes, Mr. Trump looks like a positive factor among Republicans, 7 in 10 of whom say they’d prefer a candidate he backs — but the president’s influence is limited to his own party. More Independents say they’re less likely to support a candidate backed by Mr. Trump. Meanwhile on the...

    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...

    In fact, since the start of this year, the percentage of Americans looking on their nation’s leader favorably has risen steadily. This has caused liberals no small amount of consternation. But in a new analysis of voters’ attitudes toward Trump — derived from more than a million interviews with voters in all 50 states — SurveyMonkey offers the most satisfying explanation of the president’s improving fortunes to date, while also putting Trump’s rebound in edifying perspective. Here’s a quick rundown of the pollster’s findings: How Trump has really been performing: Trump’s approval numbers are more remarkable for their stability than...

    Democrats stand to make gains in the upcoming midterm elections -- but their cockiness about winning sweeping victories has reportedly become more restrained in recent days, thanks to tightening generic ballot polling and improved presidential approval numbers.  CNN's newest national survey shows most Americans are pleased with the general state of the country, with Democrats' 2018 advantage down to just three points (as opposed to 16 points in the same series several months ago).  Reuters' national data shows Democrats' lead whittled down to one measly point, well within the margin of error.  At the beginning of the year, 'Chuck and...

    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...

    After Tuesday's West Virginia primary, red-state Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin is now trailing Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey by two points in his re-election race, according to a new poll conducted by WPA intelligence. Why it matters: That's within the margin of error, but the poll is a sign that the GOP has improved its chances of defeating Manchin since Don Blankenship lost the primary this week. Manchin is in an especially vulnerable position given that President Trump won West Virginia by 42 points 2016. Meanwhile, several Republican leaders and outside groups are looking to West Virginia as a sign...

    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....

    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...

    Actually the "Trumpies" did fine last evening producing three strong Trump/Conservative senate candidates to run against Democrats losers, Joe Manchin, Sherrod Brown & Joe Donnelley. Brown & Donnelley will lose their seats and Joe Manchin is hanging on the edge of defeat. As for Fake News & Polls...it was getting their egg in face time last, as they once again lied to West Virginia voters, in an attempt to get Blankenship elected as the primary winner. Poor Blanky finished in the basement, dead last. Folks...you can toss all mainstream polls into your garbage bin..period. As for the hyped, oncoming Democrat...

    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...

    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...

    President Donald Trump said Friday that polls showing him trailing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election were a form of voter suppression. Trump spoke at the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, Texas, and he again recounted his upset victory over Clinton as a way to rev up the crowd. "You weren't sure that Trump was going to win, but you all went out there. You all went out there and you voted," Trump said. "I remember they came out with a lot of phony polls. You know what that's called? Suppression," he added. "They convince you that you're wasting...

    President Donald Trump’s approval rating hit a one-year high this week, rising to 43.3% according to an average of polls collected by RealClearPolitics. While Trump’s approval rating was mired in the high 30s for much of late 2017, his polling numbers have been on the rise since December, when the Republican-controlled congress passed a comprehensive tax reform bill, lowering rates for most taxpayers and simplifying the tax code. Since then, Trump has also benefited from the sudden willingness of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to negotiate with South Korea and the US. South Korean President Moon Jae-in attributed the...

    "Instead of open minds and lively debate, I found dogmatic progressive ideology and groupthink. One attendee told me that I, a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer, am “no better than Roger Ailes” because my company aggregates both liberal and conservative commentaries and thereby is “pushing a right-wing agenda.” Someone else said: “Trump supporters are so stupid . . . they think the tax bill was a good deal because they got back—what, a few thousand a year?” I don’t claim to have the answers. I am, after all, a card-carrying member of the liberal elite. I went to high school...

    Two new polls, taken before President Donald Trump launched airstrikes on Syria Friday night, spell bad news for Trump and his political party. Both polls released Sunday morning show that Trump's approval rating is still below 40 percent. A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that Trump's 38% average approval rating at 15 months on the job is the lowest on record in polls that date back to the administration of President Harry Truman. The same poll also shows that 56% of Americans disapprove of the President's job performance, while 40% approve. Those who strongly disapprove of Trump outnumber those...
