    Poll after poll shows dissatisfaction with President Bush and an "enthusiasm gap" working against Republicans heading into next year's elections, yet the top Republican presidential candidates are running even with or ahead of the top Democrats in head-to-head matchups. "A major cautionary note for the Democrats at this point in the election cycle is the disparity between Americans' partisan preferences for the next president in the abstract and their preferences between specific candidates being offered up to the voters," the Gallup Poll said in a analysis. In a Quinnipiac University Poll released last week, former New York Mayor Rudolph W....

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., may have lost the primary, but he leads in the polls and has some sharp words for his fellow Democrats. Running as an independent, Lieberman has 53 percent of the vote in a new Quinnipiac University survey over 41-percent for Ned Lamont, the winner of Democratic primary, and a mere 4 percent for Republican challenger Alan Schlesinger. The incumbent used that cushion Sunday to stick to his position that the United States should not be heading for the exits in Iraq, and to chide other party leaders for criticizing his...

    During the Iraq war, much was made about how different France and the United States had become. There is no better example than the recent political eruptions in the two nations.In France, they apparently are able to make law in the streets.Here in the United States, it's still done in the halls of Congress.That's the only conclusion available after the French political system caved to political pressure from massive demonstrations and shelved a plan to attack the nation's 20-plus percent youth unemployment rate.Meanwhile, as advocates for immigration changes here that would legalize and perhaps grant citizenship to illegal immigrants continue...

    A slim 51% majority of New Yorkers support the opening of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. in the city, according to a poll released Friday. A new Quinnipiac University poll found that 74% of city voters agree that Wal-Mart’s lower prices hurt smaller businesses. Yet 70% agreed that the low prices benefit people who shop there.

Still, 65% -- including 63% among voters from union households -- said that they would shop at Wal-Mart if one opened near them. “New Yorkers sympathize with the plight of...

    Governor's approval rating is 78 percent Hartford - Gov. M. Jodi Rell maintains her commanding lead over potential Democratic opponents John DeStefano and Dan Malloy in a new poll released this morning by Quinnipiac University.

That is virtually unchanged since July, when 79 percent of voters said they approved of the governor's performance.

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Most Americans think going to war was the wrong thing to do and want to see troops pulled out of Iraq, according to a new poll. A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows that 60 percent of voters favor withdrawing from Iraq and 54 percent believe going to war was wrong. Americans are split over whether President Bush deliberately misled Americans in making the case for war. Bush posted his lowest Quinnipiac poll rating since taking office, with 40 percent of voters saying they approve of the job he is doing.
  • McCain Tops Clinton in Quinnipiac Poll

    McCain Tops Clinton in Quinnipiac Poll They both voted for the war in Iraq. Both have angered key wings of their own political parties and both seem to be overhyped "media darlings.” So, perhaps it’s no surprise that a Quinnipiac University poll has Senators John McCain (R-Ariz) and Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) in a statistical tie for the 2008 presidency with a large disclaimer – if the election were held today. In a head-to-head contest, McCain tops Clinton 44-40 percent, according to the poll. The telephone poll of 1,230 voters surveyed from Nov. 28 to Dec. 4, which had a margin...

    From Washington, DC The race for '08 has begun. Assuming Vice President Cheney doesn't declare his candidacy, 2006 will be, by my reckoning, the first time since 1952 (Dwight Eisenhower v. Adlai Stevenson) that there hasn't been in sitting President or Vice President on the ballot on either side. A poll by Quinnipiac College has Hillary Rodham Clinton Rodham running just behind both Rudy Giuliani (43-44) and John McCain (41-43). Headlines proclaimed Rodham Clinton Rodham "competitive" against both Giuliani and McCain because she was a statistically insignificant distance behind.

As my kids would say, “duh.” In the same story, published December 21st, NewsMax says that neither John McCain nor Rudy Giuliani’s names were included in the poll. In an even bigger stunner, a Fox News poll was said to have shown that if the election were held tomorrow, Hillary Clinton would handily defeat presidential brother, Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida, 46 to 35 per cent.

    President Bush has begun to narrow the gap in Connecticut on his Democratic opponent, John Kerry, according to a recent poll. And with the Republican National Convention just days away, local Republicans are hopeful that Bush can tighten the race even further and perhaps carry the state in November.

But, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, conducted Aug. 11-17 among 1,079 registered voters, Kerry leads Bush by seven points -- 45 percent to 38 percent -- with independent candidate Ralph Nader, a Connecticut...
