    A telephone survey seeking opinions about the expansion of I-70 through east Denver is generating irate protests from some respondents, who say the survey seems designed to elicit positive responses about the purported benefits of the $1.8 billion project."It was one of the most one-sided push polls I ever listened to," Larry Patchett, a production technician for public television, wrote in a complaint to CDOT. "The entire thing was just a series of opportunities to validate your suppositions and PR spin on the I-70 Ditch project." The project, which would replace a crumbling six-lane viaduct with a below-grade, partially covered...

    Gallup ^ | 7/7/16
    [As the man child's occupancy of the Oval Office] enters its final months, more Americans still blame George W. Bush than Obama for the nation's economic ills. When asked how much they blame each president for current economic problems, 64% of Americans say Bush deserves a "great deal" or "moderate amount" of blame, compared with 50% for Obama.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s popularity has rebounded after the British vote to leave the EU, an opinion poll showed Saturday, reversing a fall in her appeal caused by the refugee crisis. The poll was the second in a few days to suggest a popularity boost for the German leader. Saturday’s poll, commissioned jointly by Stern magazine and Die Welt newspaper and carried out by the Forsa market research institute, showed Ms. Merkel’s appeal up two points to 48 percent. “What’s more, three quarters of CSU supporters now back Merkel,” said Forsa director Manfred Gullner, referring to the southern German affiliate...

  • Wisconsin exit poll: More than 1/3 of Republicans won't vote GOP if Trump — or Cruz — is nominee

    A leftover from last night. In case you thought there’s even a whisper of a chance that the GOP will win this November, disabuse yourself of that now. It’s not just #NeverTrump that threatens to sink the party. It’s #NeverCruz too. When asked what they would do if Cruz were the GOP nominee in November, only 65 percent of Wisconsin Republicans said they’d vote for him. The remainder instead would vote for a third-party candidate (18 percent), vote for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton (7 percent) or not vote at all (6 percent).The numbers got slightly worse for the Republican...

    Muslim citizens are as American as apple pie, a new poll says. The survey, from the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, shows that though Muslims living in America are facing more violence than ever, they are actually among America's most model citizens. What exactly does that mean? Well, in a land founded on religious freedom, Muslims are among the most religious and patriotic citizens: 42% of Muslims attend services regularly compared to 45% of Protestants. And 87% of Muslims say religion is important to their lives, compared to 94% of Protestants.

    Soros Shadow Party Stalks DeLayBy Richard PoeFrontPageMagazine.com | April 12, 2005 On the day that Terri Schiavo died — victim of a court order condemning the brain-damaged woman to death by thirst and starvation — Representative Tom DeLay of Texas did what few politicians have the courage to do these days. He spoke his mind."This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most," DeLay told Fox News on March 31. "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior." DeLay’s strong language worried some Republicans. They pointed...

    A day away from the South Carolina Republican Primary and things are looking interesting. Donald Trump holds a 6 point lead, but Marco Rubio seems to be nipping at his heels, trailing 31-25%. Donald Trump leads in support among most demographics, with some fluctuation among income levels. Rubio and Ted Cruz are well within striking distance, but it appears as though Donald Trump will win the South Carolina primary. He may not win by much, but the state awards 29 delegates to the statewide winner, while each Congressional district winner receives 3 votes per district. A Trump win by a...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the woman whom the largest percentage of Americans admired most in 2015, according to a Gallup poll. That marks a record 20 years that she has garnered that honor, including the last 14 years in a row. Americans named President Barack Obama their most admired man. This is the eighth time that Obama has taken that honor. In the history of Gallup's most-admired surveys, no one has appeared in the Top Ten more often than the Rev. Billy Graham, who has enjoyed that distinction 59 times. ...

    Hard on the heels of yesterday’s Quinnipiac poll comes a survey from the Des Moines Register that confirms Ben Carson is now the leading Republican candidate in Iowa, with Donald Trump slipping into second place, and Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 96% nudging ahead of Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 80% for third. The Des Moines Register’s results are very similar to Quinnipiac: Carson 28, Trump 19, Cruz 10, Rubio 9. That’s a 10 point jump for Carson since the last poll in August, and a four-point slide for Trump. The second tier is a tie for fifth place, with...

    Donald J. Trump may have lost his grip on Iowa, as the second poll in two days shows the billionaire Republican presidential candidate trailing Ben Carson in the state that kicks off the nominating process. A new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll shows Mr. Carson with support of 28 percent of the likely participants in Iowa’s Republican caucuses, with Mr. Trump at 19 percent. In August, Mr. Trump was leading Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, by a margin of 23 to 18. The poll has a margin of error of five percentage points. Mr. Trump frequently parades his strong poll...

    Sixty-three percent of registered voters oppose cutting off federal funds to Planned Parenthood, according to a new poll commissioned by the organization. The poll, conducted by the Democratic firm Hart Research Associates, finds that along with 63 percent of voters overall who oppose defunding Planned Parenthood, 68 percent of independents also oppose the move. The poll finds that a “bare majority” of 53 percent of Republicans favor defunding, while 34 percent oppose the move. The survey finds that voters are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports funding Planned Parenthood over one calling to end funding, by a...

    In 2009, the gap between the share of Republicans and Democrats who believed in evolution was just 10 percentage points, 54 percent and 64 percent, respectively. Last year, that gap widened to a whopping 24 points because as the percentage of Democrats who believed in evolution inched up to 67 percent, the percentage of Republicans believing so plummeted to 43 percent. Now, more Republicans believe that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time” than believe in evolution. This sad news comes via a survey released this week by the Pew Research...

    She’s reportedly waiting until 2014 before she starts thinking about 2016, but Hillary Clinton, according to one national poll, is your frontrunner for the White House — by a wide margin.And Elizabeth Warren is your fastest rising star.The former secretary of state and first lady dominated last week’s new Quinnipiac University survey, which showed her gobbling up 61 percent of support and beating any Republican challenger — be it New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul or Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz — by anywhere from 13 to 23 points.

    Americans support a wide range of new measures to combat gun violence, including majority support for background checks, an assault weapons ban, and placing armed police in schools according to a pair of new polls released Monday. The surveys, preformed by Pew Research and the Washington Post/ABC News, both find that Americans generally support a broad array of efforts in the aftermath of the Newtown, Conn. elementary school shooting that left 20 children and 6 school employees dead. Among the most popular proposal in either survey was closing the so-called "gun show" loophole, which allows the private sale of guns...
