  • Fmr Clinton Pollster Mark Penn: Conor Lamb Came Out Against Nancy Pelosi and Won

    03/19/2018 7:15:12 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 36 replies
    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Pennsylvania’s 16th congressional district special election result, crediting Rep.-elect Conor Lamb’s (D-PA) victory to the candidate going against the far left like Nancy Pelosi. “[A]fter so much talk that the party was moving to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders [the special Pennsylvania congressional election] really reaffirms the power of a centrist Democrat,” Penn told New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis. “I mean, Conor Lamb really took a lot of centrist positions. He backed a lot of what President Trump was saying. And he came out explicitly against...

    In this video, Democratic pollster Celinda Lake encourages union workers to lie to voters on specific issues because the Democrats are behind the Republicans at the moment and are "in trouble." Lake was a general consultant for Bill Clinton and has since worked with the DNC, AFL-CIO, Planned Parenthood, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi.

    Donald Trump is all but accusing a top Republican pollster of trying to shake him down. After the presidential debate on Thursday night, Fox News featured a focus group conducted by Frank Luntz that utterly slammed Trump. On Monday, Trump told Business Insider that he thought he was panned by Luntz's group because he declined to hire Luntz's research firm. "This has been going on, he's putting the arm on me all the time, and then he does these polls that are totally in violation of every other poll that was done," Trump said of Luntz. Trump said post-debate polls...
  • Eric Cantor's Pollster Gave A Laughably Bad Excuse For Why He Was So Wrong [A 45 Point Miss!]

    Business Insider ^ | 06/11/2014 | Brett LoGiurato
    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's pollster is blaming Democrats for meddling in Cantor's race and pushing Tea Party-affiliated opponent Dave Brat to victory. He's wrong, according to political observers and interpretations drawn from turnout results. John McLaughlin, Cantor's pollster, released a survey days before the primary indicating Cantor had the election in the bag. The poll showed Cantor leading Brat by 34 points. Since Brat ended up winning by 11 points, that's a 45-point miss. This is not the first time McLaughlin's data has been off in recent elections, but he took advantage of comments from "Dukes of Hazard" actor...

    Barack Obama’s leading polling expert is also a member of an elite, invitation-only collection of liberal moneymen. Paul Harstad is a member of the Democracy Alliance, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The Alliance steers tens of millions of dollars to campaigns and groups backed by the White House, including the president’s Super PAC, Priorities USA, as well as to liberal nonprofits such as the Center for American Progress and Media Matters for America. Harstad is the closest direct tie between the administration and the secretive group, which does not disclose its members or donors. He has...

Nonetheless, that list grew recently as Frank Luntz, formerly considered to be an objective pollster whose reports could be...

    Should CNN be using President Obama's pollster as a paid contributor to its network? A Washington insider says dapper data guru Cornell Belcher represents a potential conflict of interest for the cable network, now that he's reportedly going to work for Obama's reelection effort. In February, CNN announced that Belcher - who did polling for the Democratic National Committee from 2005 to 2008, including Obama's presidential campaign - was joining its team of on-air political contributors.

Scott Rasmussen, author, independent pollster and founder/president of Rasmussen Reports, the electronic media company that specializes in the collection and distribution of public opinion data, ranks 15th on the list. That positions him as a more desirable interview ahead of such notable personalities as actor Johnny Depp, Kiss frontman Gene Simmons and presidents Barack...

    I remember a time when polling sites such as were more independent, so why is it that Huffington Post appears to have taken the reigns of such a great independent polling site and turn it into a liberal slanting POS? First thing I see on the front page is slams toward the tea party, GOP, and Michael Moore ranting about how the Democrats can stay in power this November. Not only that, but the comments have been disabled for polls that show Obama's negative approval ratings but no where else. One can easily read a slam towards the right...

    If Democrats want to convince anyone not already firmly in their own camp to support their candidates, they need a better argument than BushBushBushBushBush. National Journal reports the results of a poll commissioned by a Democrat-leaning think tank that shows voters don’t consider today’s GOP as watercarriers for Barack Obama’s predecessor. Almost two-thirds of respondents see Republican control of Congress as, well, Hope and Change: Dems have tried repeatedly to tie the GOP to Bush’s economic policies, which remain highly unpopular. But so far, that hasn’t worked, according to officials at the Dem-leaning Third Way think tank.“Just eighteen months after...

    The liberal website has chosen to terminate its relationship with MD-based pollster Research 2000, according to DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas. "I have decided to part ways with our current pollster, and will be looking for a new polling partner to finish out this election cycle," Moulitsas wrote in a statement posted on his site. Research 2000 Pres. Del Ali confirmed the split in an interview with Hotline OnCall. Moulitsas' decision comes in the wake of last night's AR SEN Dem primary runoff, in which Sen. Blanche Lincoln held off LG Bill Halter, Daily Kos' preferred candidate. The website promoted...

    Attacks on Scott Rasmussen and Fox News show a disturbing attitude toward dissent. Polling is both an art and a science, but recently it's also become a subject of political intimidation. One shot was fired by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Dec. 8, when he dismissed Gallup's daily tracking of President Obama's job approval. It had hit a record low of 47%, and Mr. Gibbs called the results meaningless: "If I was a heart patient and Gallup was my EKG I'd visit my doctor. If you look back I think five days ago. . . there was an...

He's talking to Tom Jensen, the director of Public Policy Polling communications, and he says, "How important are your polls to a political party, whether Republican or Democrat?

    I wasn’t going to talk about presidential politics for a long while, especially since my prediction last year ago of a Giuliani / Hillary Clinton race, with America’s Mayor winning narrowly. Wow, did I miss the mark on that one. Wednesday of this week I got a call from a young woman who said she was a pollster for the Democratic Party of North Carolina. After a little back and forth, I was satisfied that this was a real poll, and I answered her questions. The fact that she didn’t ask any demographic questions at the end raised doubts about...

    Recently I spent two back-to-back days interviewing voters the old-fashioned way — in person, face to face, and one by one. These short, confidential, and relatively unstructured interviews were primarily devoted to exploration of a ballot measure that Florida voters may decide in November 2008. But as a warm-up to each dialogue, I asked about the forthcoming presidential contest. The interviews — conducted in two Democratic-leaning counties — initially seemed to suggest that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is a shoo-in. Even most of the Republicans whom I spoke with seemed inclined to vote for her. But on further reflection,...
