    Surely you are familiar with the old cliché, “Politics is a blood sport” — but now I suggest an update, “Politics is a betting sport” — due to the growing popularity of political prediction betting.Of course, through the lens of the media, politics is already covered as a “game” with winners and losers, while the presidential Election Day equates to the “Super Bowl.” Thus, with campaigns costing millions and daily lives affected by policy decisions, it is logical that prediction betting has become an armchair sport with odds that may foretell the outcome of an election or political event.If you want to play along,...

  • 43% of Republicans say Trump should be allowed to shut down media

    NYPost ^ | August 7, 2018
    President Trump’s repeated cries of “fake news” and attacks on journalists as “enemies of the American people” have resonated with his base, with 43 percent of Republicans saying he “should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” The results — suggesting that a plurality of Republicans would have no problem trashing the First Amendment — came from a stunning new poll conducted by Ipsos and reported Tuesday by the Daily Beast. The survey also showed that just 36 percent of GOP voters disagreed with that statement. When asked if Trump should close down specific news organizations,...

    HILLSBORO, Ohio — After President Trump’s less-than-stellar performance side by side with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, many Trump critics may have hoped, reasonably, that Trump’s approval ratings — already historically low compared with other presidents — would take a nose-dive. Instead, his numbers remained basically steady. A July NBC/Wall Street Journal sampling even found that Trump’s approval rating climbed one point from the previous month, to 45 percent, and, most notably, his 88 percent approval among Republicans is the highest of his presidency. Republican pollster Bill McInturff, part of the team that conducted the poll, said the stability...

    President Trump's public approval numbers have hit 50% among likely voters, according to a new Rasmussen poll, which is good news for midterms. And who should be pushing those ratings to el norte? No kidding: Hispanic voters. You know, the ones who are supposed to hate Trump with a passion. After all, doesn't the press dutifully report that Trump is an enemy of illegals, and aren't illegals in the same conventional wisdom simply synonymous with Hispanics, and with Hispanics and illegals all the same thing, isn't it all just proof that Trump is racist? Here's what the Washington Times, now...

    Are Hispanics shifting their allegiances to President Trump? A recent Harvard/Harris poll recorded a 10-point spike in Hispanic support for Mr. Trump.... Republican Gov. Rick Scott is besting his Democratic opponent among Hispanics, according to a Mason-Dixon poll. Unemployment among Hispanics has fallen to its lowest level in decades, and there’s little doubt that Mr. Trump’s pro-business policies are the reason. There’s even more cause for optimism looking ahead. Mr. Trump’s $1 billion infrastructure plan will benefit the country as a whole, of course, but there’s a silver lining for Hispanics, who constitute nearly 30 percent of the U.S. construction...

    A plurality of registered voters, 44 percent, said they’d choose Biden in the 2020 presidential election, while 37 percent of voters said they would vote for Trump. The percentage of Democrats who would choose Biden — 80 percent — was slightly higher than the 78 percent of Republicans who would vote for the president‘s reelection. The former vice president, who ran for the White House in 1988 and 2008, has been floated as a 2020 contender, and Biden himself has said he’s not ruling out a third try. Morning Consult surveyed 1,993 registered voters from July 26 to July 30...

    When the 4.1 GDP came out last week the Democrats were already dead. The 4.1 just helped make the arrangements for their funeral. Like the wounded animals they are, the left cried out in pain when the reliably left leaning Gallup and Harvard Harris polls joined the rolling left Rasmussen poll in delivering what for Democrats is terrible news: American voters love Donald Trump’s economy. Immediately, Democrat controlled polls started to churn out fake polls. These fake polls were designed solely to generate dispiriting headlines; but they won’t work. As always, the Democrats are overplaying the situation. They are telling...

    Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) is trailing Democratic challenger Tony Evers by 13 points in the upcoming Wisconsin gubernatorial race, according to a new poll released Thursday. Of the registered voters surveyed in the NBC News/Marist poll, 41 percent backed Walker in the race, compared to the 54 percent who supported Evers. When asked if Walker deserves to be reelected, 34 percent of the voters agreed with the statement. Sixty-one percent said a new person should be given a chance, and 5 percent were unsure.
  • Poll: Americans overwhelmingly reject voting rights for undocumented immigrants

    San Francisco's Department of Elections last week made the move to start allowing non-U.S. citizens to vote in the city's school board elections, sparking a national debate. The idea is unlikely to be copied in many localities, at least if the latest American Barometer poll is any indication. According to the survey, which is a joint project of Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company, 71 percent of respondents opposed San Francisco's decision, while only 29 percent said they supported the move. Ninety-one percent of Republicans polled said they opposed giving the right to vote to noncitizens, as did 54 percent...

    New polling shows Missouri Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley with a slight lead over Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in what promises to be one of the country’s tightest and most consequential races. The new head-to-head survey, which was conducted last week by GOP pollster Remington Research, shows Hawley two points up on McCaskill, 48-46. The poll provides the first glimpse into Missouri voters’ thinking on the race since Republican governor Eric Greitens resigned in May over allegations of sexual misconduct and violations of campaign finance law, bringing an abrupt end to a months-long scandal that was widely seen as a...

    President Trump's approval rating among Americans stands at 48 percent, a new poll shows. The poll from American Barometer, a new joint project by Hill.TV and HarrisX, showed that among those who approve of Trump's job performance, 23 percent did so "strongly" while 25 percent did so "somewhat." The survey also showed 52 percent disapproved of Trump's performance, with 38 percent doing so "strongly" and 14 percent disapproving "somewhat.” The poll was released on Wednesday's edition of the new online video show "What America's Thinking" with Joe Concha. Dritan Nesho, a pollster and CEO of HarrisX, said the new findings...

    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — A political analysis organization changed its ratings of multiple congressional races Tuesday, including West Virginia’s U.S. Senate and 3rd Congressional District contests. Sabato’s Crystal Ball, part of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, changed its ratings of the two races from “toss up” to “leans Democrat,” which is good news for U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and state Sen. Richard Ojeda. Manchin is running against Republican candidate and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey for his second full term in the Senate. Ojeda, D-Logan, who caught the attention of national news organizations prior to and following the...

    Conservative: Liberals Still Don’t Get Trump Support Progressives are forever predicting President Trump’s political demise, but his support has risen by 6 percentage points since late 2017. Asks Henry Olsen at The Guardian: How do they keep getting it so wrong? For one thing, they don’t understand that “the often virulent behavior of anti-Trump partisans” has made Republicans “especially unwilling to abandon their leader, even when he stumbles.” For another, Trump’s base is far more conventional than they realize. Indeed, more than 80 percent of his vote came from people who’d voted for Mitt Romney four years earlier. And, like...

    When I wrote last week that President Trump's capitulatory press conference with Vladimir Putin was a low moment in his tenure thus far, I wasn't out on a limb. Trump's equivocations prompted rebukes from scores of Congressional Republicans, as well as critiques from a number of national figures who are typically supporters and allies. Trump's secret sauce, however, is that the more he's attacked, the more Republican voters feel compelled to circle the wagons and rally to his defense -- hence the polling released last week in which super-majorities of GOP-leaning voters said they approved of his performance with Putin,...
