    11/25/2014 10:26:44 AM PST · by SeekAndFind · 8 replies
    American voters are divided on whether President Barack Obama should take action to address the immigration issue if Congress fails to act, as 45 percent say the president should issue an executive order while 48 percent say he should not, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today. At the same time, support for immigrants is at its lowest level ever measured by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll. Offered three choices on what to do about illegal immigrants: 48 percent of American voters say they should be allowed to stay, with a path to citizenship, down from 57...

    In a Quinnipiac University poll released today, Americans rated Ronald Reagan as the best US President since World War II, while the current White House occupant, Barack Obama, was listed as the worst. The same revealed that for the first time since his term began, Americans consider former President George W Bush to have done a better job than President Obama. The poll also provided Obama with some of the worst approval ratings of his presidency, and an overwhelming number of Americans believe the nation would be better off had Mitt Romney won the election of 2012. Only 40 percent...

    President Obama is the worst president since World War II, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday. The poll finds that 33 percent of voters say Obama is the worst since the war, with George W. Bush trailing in second place at 28 percent. The only other president in double digits, at 13 percent, is Richard Nixon, who resigned from office after the Watergate scandal. The results raise the possibility that voters are choosing the presidents who are freshest in their memory. Or they could just think that this century has produced historically bad presidents. Obama ran in 2008 as...

    President Obama’s approval rating has sunk to a new low yet again. A new Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday shows that Obama’s approval rating is only 38%. That’s down one percent from a poll released last month. The new low comes as women and young people, who once vehemently supported Obama, turn their backs on the president. Only 44% of women and 41% of young people (aged 18-29) now say they support Obama. The Quinnipiac poll also revealed that the public has lost trust in Obama. His approval rating on trustworthiness is 44-52 — this is bad news for the president,...

    The worst state poll of his presidency? It’s his worst Quinnipiac state poll for sure, by their own admission, which is significant for two reasons. One: Colorado is, of course, a famously purple state and bellwether, one which helped Bush to the presidency in 2000 and 2004 and then broke for Obama in 2008 and 2012. The One is used to seeing his job approval 20 points underwater or more in red states, but Colorado hasn’t been a red state at the presidential level in nearly a decade. Lots of rehab work to be done by Democrats before the midterms.Two:...

Eliot Spitzer had a 17-point lead over Scott Stringer in the New York City Democratic primary race for comptroller and presumably a clear path to a political comeback. In just three weeks, though, his nineteen-point lead over Stringer (56/37) in the Quinnipiac poll series has flipped to a 45/47 deficit — a change of 21 points in the gap in nearly as many days: The Democratic primary for New York City Comptroller is too close to call, with 47 percent of likely primary voters for Manhattan...

    MILWAUKEE — If Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) is worried about his reelection odds, he’s not showing it publicly. “It seemed like I really had an unfair advantage,” Hickenlooper quipped after a Democratic Governors Association briefing here Friday afternoon. “The approval ratings were so high — it really didn’t seem even fair. So, we made a few strategic decisions to try to move ourselves back into play, forcing us to be on our game, a little more focused.” A June Quinnipiac University poll showed the first-term Democrat running neck and neck with Republican Tom Tancredo, a failed 2010 gubernatorial candidate...

If I was not the first media personality to interview Rick, I was one of the first. I had Rick as a guest at the request of my friend, Mark Rogers, who was running Rick’s campaign. Over the years I interviewed Rick at least a dozen times and debated him several times as...

    The next presidential election is more than three years away, but early polling shows Hillary Rodham Clinton leading the Democratic pack by a landslide margin, with a whopping 63 per cent of Democrats telling pollsters that they would vote for the former first lady and Secretary of State. Vice President Joe Biden came in second with 13 per cent support - barely one-fifth of Clinton's showing. The GOP field is anyone's game, however, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie only garnering 15 per cent support among Republicans to narrowly lead the pack. He's followed by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, Florida...

She would also win by double digits over Rep. Paul Ryan 50%-38. The Republican that would give her the most trouble is the one that the conservative base likes the least. Clinton would defeat...

Unfortunately, these polls are relying on sample sizes which are skewed tremendously leftward with far more Democrats than Republicans and as such, they are unlikely to be good predictors of actual Election Day turnout. Do the pollsters themselves actually believe in their own sample sizes though?...

While Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney have been near the top, neither has been dominant. Donald Trump was able to surge last month, although where his polls go now is unclear. With much of the attention reverting away from him, he may see a dip in his vote share. And it appears that may have already happened-- and Sarah Palin has picked up the slack.

Just 42 percent of those polled approve of the job Obama is doing, compared to 48 percent who disapprove, according to Quinnipiac. And in a bad sign for his upcoming 2012 re-election campaign, 50 percent of those polled say he doesn't deserve another term in the White House. In January,...

    Wasn’t that the message of the midterms, especially after Barack Obama went out of his way to defend Democrats by warning voters that his agenda was at risk? In this case, it was the same as waving a red cape in front of a bull — or a whole Pamplona village of them. Quinnipiac’s latest survey shows that only 43% of voters say Obama deserves a second term, but that number changes a bit when specific alternatives are mentioned: President Barack Obama does not deserve a second term, American voters say 49 – 43 percent, and he is in a...

    New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie gets decent grades from voters as he nears the end of his first year in office, with a 51 - 38 percent approval rating, higher than President Barack Obama or any other statewide leader, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Assigning letter grades to the governor's performance, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds: •17 percent of New Jersey voters give Christie an A; •31 percent give him a B; •20 percent give him a C; •16 percent give him a D; •15 percent give him an F. Christie is more of a...

    Every election cycle has its winners and losers: not just the among the candidates, but also the pollsters. On Tuesday, polls conducted by the firm Rasmussen Reports — which released more than 100 surveys in the final three weeks of the campaign, including some commissioned under a subsidiary on behalf of Fox News — badly missed the margin in many states, and also exhibited a considerable bias toward Republican candidates. Other polling firms, like SurveyUSA and Quinnipiac University, produced more reliable results in Senate and gubernatorial races. A firm that conducts surveys by Internet, YouGov, also performed relatively well. What...

    The Federalist Society, a student organization at the School of Law, is hosting a lecture by the Honorable James L. Buckley at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10, in the Grand Courtroom in the School of Law Center. In his lecture, "Overloading the Federal Horse," Buckley will discuss what he sees as the disastrous consequences for law and policy caused by the federal government's abandonment of concepts of federalism. His particular focus will be on the consequences for good law-making in Congress. Buckley served as a U.S. senator from New York State from 1970 to 1977. He had many legislative...

    For those who are worried about Pat Toomey’s sudden slip in the polls in Pennsylvania — and I was among them — you’ll want to read this analysis from “Number Cruncher,” a finance/political junkie who spends even more time breaking down polls than I do. Your readers should calm down. This race isn’t that close, or even closing. The only thing closing is the pollsters’ prediction of who to consider a likely voter. Looking at the Quinnipiac results, I find them very encouraging for Toomey, specifically among Independents. Taking the Quinnipiac crosstabs and applying 2004, 2006, 2008, and my predicted...

    Quinnipiac Poll ^ | 09/28/2010
    Propelled by Connecticut likely voters who say they are "angry" with government, former wrestling executive Linda McMahon, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate, is closing in on Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, the Democrat, and now trails just 49 - 46 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. This compares to a 51 - 45 percent Blumenthal lead in a September 14 likely voter survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll, conducted by live interviewers. In today's survey, 4 percent are undecided and 9 percent of voters who name a candidate say they could change their mind by Election...

    As the president’s approval rating continues to plummet nearly as fast as BP’s stock, he is fortunate that it is not lower than it is. In the new Quinnipiac he has -4 spread in his approval rating and would loose to any republican in the 2012 if the election were held today. You would think this would be front page news because we were bombarded by the mainstream media with how poorly President Bush was doing in his second term. Of course a quick search of all the mainstream media’s web sites (CNN, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC) resulted in not...
  • Poll: Majority Supports Gays in Military

    A large majority of U.S. voters believe that homosexual men and women should be allowed to serve openly in the US military, according to a poll out Wednesday. The independent Quinnipiac University poll asked Americans about their views on the law that requires gay service members to keep quiet about their sexual orientation or face expulsion from the military, known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." The survey was conducted after President Barack Obama last month renewed his vow to change the law and allow gays to serve openly in uniform. The poll found that 57 percent of US voters believe...

    No one in the White House is celebrating over the latest polls. President Obama’s job approval rating has dipped below 50 percent in a flurry of recent surveys. Rasmussen has him at 46 percent; Quinnipiac at 45; in Gallup he’s clinging to 50. The Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll released Thursday had some heart-stopping numbers for Democrats: The president’s job approval was at 47 percent, down from 61 percent in April. Only 26 percent of respondents said they strongly approved of the president’s performance, compared to 38 percent in April. Just 39 percent said they would probably vote to reelect...

    American voters are split 45 - 45 percent on whether Barack Obama's first year in office is a success or failure and split 35 - 37 percent on whether the U.S. would be better off if John McCain had won the 2008 election, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released today. As he marks the first anniversary of his inauguration, President Obama's approval has slipped slightly into an even 45 - 45 percent split for the first time.

    The second leg of Quinnipiac's big national poll dropped this morning -- and it shows a serious erosion of support for Congressional health reform efforts and the president's performance on the issue -- along with an all-time low 46 percent approval rating for the POTUS. Most ominously for Dems: Nearly two-thirds of registered voters polled said extending coverage to 30 million-plus people will result in a decline in the quality of their own health care. That gives plenty of room to the GOP to personalize attacks on the plan, Obama and Congress. The lowlights for Dems: --O approval/disapproval: 46/44 percent....

    (snip) The jump in public support for Obama's war policy comes as voters say 66 - 26 percent he does not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize he will be awarded this week, and 41 percent say the Nobel committee's choice of Obama for the award causes them to think less of it, while 6 percent say it makes them think better of the prize and 49 percent say it makes no difference. (snip) "It's probably a good thing for President Obama that the time difference from Norway means the Nobel presentation will occur while most Americans are sleeping and might...
