    A new poll released Thursday from Quinnipiac University shows President Donald Trump leading Democrat presidential hopefuls in Wisconsin while trailing those same candidates in Pennsylvania and Michigan. According to the poll, President Trump beat all Democrat candidates by between seven and eleven percentage points among registered Wisconsin voters. The closest matchups highlighted in the poll are between former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Those surveyed in the poll favored Trump over both Biden and Sanders by seven percentage points. The largest marginal difference between Trump and a Democrat challenger was that of Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN),...

    President Donald Trump is enjoying a positive approval rating for the first time since his inauguration, according to a poll released Thursday. 49% of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing, compared to 48% who disapprove of Trump’s performance, according to a Gallup poll published Thursday. The poll also found that the president is enjoying his highest approval ratings among Independents since taking office at 43%. The poll suggests that the current state of the economy could help the president’s re-election efforts this Fall, finding that 61% of Americans believe the economy is getting better compared to 33% of...

  • Tom Steyer Hits 10% Debate Threshold in Four Polls, but None of Them Counts

    RENO, Nevada — Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer would have qualified for Wednesday’s Democrat debate by Monday evening, but the arcane rules of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) may keep him from the stage. With barely 24 hours to go before the 11:59 p.m. ET deadline on Tuesday, Steyer has yet to meet the minimum criteria of receiving “10% or more support in at least four polls (which may be national polls, or single-state polls of South Carolina, and/or Nevada) ” or “12% or more support in two single-state polls in South Carolina and/or Nevada.”

    29% of Democratic primary voters back Sen. Bernie Sanders, up 4 points since before the N.H. primary. 17% say Joe Biden has the best chance of beating President Trump in 2020, down 12 points from before Tuesday’s result. Following his narrow victory in New Hampshire’s Democratic presidential primary — his second successive strong showing in the party’s first nominating contests — Sen. Bernie Sanders opened up a double-digit lead over former Vice President Joe Biden and entrenched himself as the best-positioned candidate heading into next week’s Nevada caucuses.
  • Why the 2020 presidential campaign polls are misleading

    NY Post ^ | February 13 2020 | John Ziegler
    One of the biggest mistakes that political analysts, especially those who spend a lot of time on Twitter, often make is they assume voters are as engaged in the process as they, or their audiences, are. The reality is that, largely due to media fragmentation, the “average” (more accurately, “median”) voter is even less educated in comparison to us news junkies, who have never had more information instantly available than what we can easily ­access today. Consequently, at least half of the massive electorate for a presidential general election has been, whether we like it or not, paying very little,...

    SALT LAKE CITY — Reaction to Sen. Mitt Romney’s vote to remove President Donald Trump from office has ranged from outrage to praise across the country and in Utah. Those mixed emotions are reflected in a new Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll with KSL showing 22% of Utahns are disappointed and 21% are proud to have Romney as their senator in light of his vote to convict Trump. The poll also found that 14% are encouraged, 13% are pleased, 11% are embarrassed and 8% are angry. Another 11% weren’t sure. Given those results, Utah voters overall reaction to Romney’s...

    Women favor global death far more strongly than men. He’s been in the 2020 Democratic race for president from the start. Now the Sweet Meteor O’Death is finding a receptive audience: New Hampshire Democrats. The University of Massachusetts-Lowell Center for Public Opinion surveyed Democratic primary voters at the end of January and found nearly two-thirds would rather a meteor hit the earth, “extinguishing all human life,” than President Trump win re-election on Nov. 3. That’s a serious poll result. Results:

    The Boston Globe ^ | February 7, 2020 | Jeremy C. Fox
    Former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg, building on his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses, continued his surge among likely Democratic New Hampshire presidential primary voters, putting him and Senator Bernie Sanders in a statistical dead heat in a Boston Globe/WBZ-TV/Suffolk University poll released Thursday night. Former vice president Joe Biden, whose campaign is stumbling after a disappointing fourth-place finish in Iowa, saw another modest dip in his numbers. That put him in fourth place behind Senator Elizabeth Warren in Thursday’s poll, the fourth of seven the Suffolk University Political Research Center is conducting in the run-up to the...

    The politics of Utah Sen. Mitt Romney’s 11th-hour mystery on how he will vote on President Trump’s impeachment has become sticky now that a new survey finds that the president is more popular in Utah. The Utah Policy survey showed that for the first time since his election, a majority of Utah voters approve of Trump’s job performance, echoing his surge in national surveys. According to the poll analysis, “The survey, conducted for and 2 News by Y2 Analytics shows 52% of likely voters approve of President Trump, while 45% disapprove, giving the president a net-positive approval rating of...
  • Why Won't Scarborough Release Spiked Iowa Poll Results Showing Strong Sanders Lead?

    Joe Scarborough knows the results of the spiked Des Moines Register poll on the Iowa caucuses. And they apparently show Bernie Sanders with a big lead. So why is Scarborough refusing to disclose them? Yes, the newspaper decided to spike the results because it was concerned about a possible problem with its methodology. But that surely doesn't bind Scarborough. Aren't reporters supposed to report? Let Scarborough release the results, and let people decided for themselves how reliable they are. Scarborough can explain the possible problem with the polling to put the results in context. So why are Joe and other...

    NBC News ^ | 2/3/2020 | Ben Collins
    Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Andrew Yang pushed false conspiracy theories on Twitter over the weekend tied to the canceled Des Moines Register poll, effectively commandeering a trending hashtag to convey the idea that their candidates are more successful than the public has been led to believe. The Des Moines Register poll, a closely watched indicator of the Iowa race, was canceled after at least one interviewer apparently omitted Pete Buttigieg’s name from the randomized list of candidates the surveyor read. The political website Axios reported that the reason for the error was that an interviewer increased the...

    President Trump is emerging from the four-month impeachment process with little sign of damage to his political standing, even though a majority of voters believes he carried out the acts that House Democrats charge in their articles of impeachment, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. Some 46% of voters in the survey said the Senate should remove Mr. Trump from office at the end of the impeachment trial, while 49% said he should serve out his term. snip Mr. Trump’s job approval in the January poll stood at 46%, with 51% disapproving, in line with results throughout the...

    Joe Biden may have just received the worst news of his campaign, as a new poll shows his support in his firewall state of South Carolina collapsing along with his once dominant support among black voters, with Sen. Berine Sanders and Tom Steyer closing the gap. . . . While the poll shows Biden still in the lead, he's at just 25%, with Sanders at 20%, and Steyer (who has carpet bombed the state with TV ads) at 18%. Biden once led in the poll by as high as 31 points.

    CNN and the Des Moines Register have scrapped the planned release of a key poll on Saturday, less than two days before the Iowa caucuses after concerns that an apparent coding error left one of the leading contenders out of at least one survey. The media outlets decided to nix a planned live televised release of the survey after a supporter of former Mayor Pete Buttigieg received a call from the pollsters — and Buttigieg’s name was not one of the options offered. The New York Times first reported the network’s decision to cancel the poll’s release. The Des Moines...

    Dear Fellow FReepers, I have a few polls and graphs in my arsenal to show libs that Trump's support among Blacks has increased since 2016, when he only obtained 8% of the Black vote. But Liberals are morons. I'm in a discussion with one of them on Facebook, and I mentioned the recent Rassmussen, NPR/Marist and Emerson polls indicating a 33% to 34% approval rate amongst Blacks who support Trump. The liberal says that those polls are incorrect because they 'throw in' Non-Whites are one group -- both Blacks and Hispanics. Are there any graphs or polls that show an...

    According to Real Clear Politics, in spite of the economy and everything else going well in the United States of America, almost every current national poll has President Trump trailing a hypothetical Democrat opponent. Whether Biden; Sanders; Warren; or even Buttigieg, Bloomberg, or Klobuchar, President Trump trails them all in nearly every poll. As of this writing, the latest general election national poll by CNN, IBD/TIPP, Emerson, Fox News, Quinnipiac, and SurveyUSA has President Trump behind almost every possible Democrat candidate. In 32 different matchups from the six polling agencies previously mentioned, President Trump leads in only two scenarios. The...
