    Real News:  “According to the findings of a new Hill-HarrisX poll, a shocking 32 percent of black male voters would prefer to vote for Donald Trump over a generic Democrat opponent in the 2020 presidential election.” - Big League PoliticsFake News:Poll: Overwhelming majority of black voters back any 2020 Democrat over Trump – The Hill Shift and insert as needed Note that the entire Hill-HarrisX survey consisted of just 210 black voters which places the margin of error at plus or minus 6.8 percentage points.

    The “poll results” that you see are never, I repeat, never intended to reflect the voting plans, thinking, preferences, or views of any segment of the population.  “Polls” are intended to “push” you into voting, thinking, preferring or holding the view endorsed by the pollster - ipso fatso they are “push polls”.At one time the stock market put the “capital” in capitalism, now it serves as more of a slot machine in what has become Wall Street’s giant casino. And like every other gambling establishment it attracts more than its share of shady characters looking to manipulate, control and benefit...
  • GOP heading for midterm wipeout as Blue Wave scenario gives Democrats 12-point generic ballot lead

    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.

    With their supporters energized in opposition to Donald Trump, Democrats hold their widest advantage in midterm election vote preferences since 2006, when they seized control of both houses of Congress. Rebounding from a tighter contest in the spring, Democratic House candidates now lead their Republican opponents nationally by 52-38 percent among registered voters in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll – a lead that holds up across a range of likely voter models.

    Politico ^ | August 1, 2018
    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...

    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...

    [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...

    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...
