    "The Affordable Care Act's political position has deteriorated dramatically over the last week." That, coming from longtime Obamacare cheerleader and Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein, was pretty strong language. And it was only Wednesday. That was the day after the release of a devastating Quinnipiac national poll. It showed Barack Obama's approval rating at 39 percent, with his disapproval rating at 54 percent -- sharply down from 45 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval on Oct. 1, the day the government shutdown began and healthcare.gov went into (limited) operation. Democrats hoped that Republicans would take a shellacking in public opinion...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) narrowly leads the pack of potential GOP contenders in 2016, according to a new poll. If the GOP presidential primary were held today, 17 percent of GOP voters would elect Paul, according to a new Quinnipiac Poll released Wednesday. He leads among Tea Party Republicans as well, with 22 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie rates second with 13 percent, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) with 12 percent and Jeb Bush with 11 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) garner 10 percent. Nineteen percent of Republicans are undecided. Rubio’s numbers have...

    After a few weeks spent tracking down and questioning pollsters and the reporters of polls, I can assure the reader that pollsters are the modern-day alchemists. They promise to turn numbers into predictive gold. We'd all like to believe these magical powers exist, but we shouldn't. The pollsters of 2012 just don't know who is going to win in November any more than did the pollsters of 1980 know that Ronald Reagan was headed towards a landslide in that late-breaking year. I'd like to believe Scott Rasmussen that the race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama is tied. Democrats would...

    Bad news comes out of the must-carry state of Pennsylvania today for Barack Obama and his re-election hopes. Not only has Obama fallen far below water in his approval rating in the latest Quinnipiac poll, he has now dropped into a tie against a potential Republican nominee. No, this isn’t a generic Republican, either: The protracted slugfest over raising the national debt limit leaves President Barack Obama with a 54 – 43 percent disapproval among Pennsylvania voters, but he scores better than Republicans or Democrats in Congress, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. …Pennsylvania voters say 52 –...

    How low can President Obama's approval rating go? Pretty low, it appears. The president's approval rating reached a new all-time low, according to a national Quinnipiac survey released today. The survey finds that just 44 percent of registered voters approve of the job he has done as president -- his worst score ever -- with 48 percent disapproving. “It was a year ago, during the summer of 2009, that America’s love affair with President Barack Obama began to wane. In July of 2009, the president had a 57 to 33 percent approval rating," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the...

    Newly-minted Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter would whip old Republican rival Pat Toomey 53 - 33 percent if the 2010 Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race were held today, but if popular former Gov. Tom Ridge becomes the Republican candidate, he trails Specter by just 46 - 43 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Independent voters, who back Sen. Specter over Toomey 45 - 36 percent, switch to Ridge 47 - 37 percent if he becomes a candidate. The former Republican Governor also gets 14 percent of the Democratic vote, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. In the Specter-Toomey...

    FLORIDA: Obama 51 – McCain 43 post-debate OHIO: Obama 50 – McCain 42 post-debate PENNSYLVANIA: Obama 54 – McCain 39 post-debate McCain pushback on Florida polls: “Our polling shows us up 7. My guess is they over sampled blacks and under sampled Cubans. McCain pushback on Q-polls: “These polls are laughable. We hope Obama thinks they’re true. The national tracking is clear: Some polls have us down 2 percent, some 4, some as high as 6. How could you have national numbers like that, but have those kinds of numbers in three of the largest, most competitive states in the...
  • Thompson's Tenn. roots could bear fruit

    If the early primaries and caucuses don’t decide the Republican presidential nomination, former Sen. Fred Thompson may enjoy an edge in any drawn-out delegate slugfest due to his Sun Belt roots and “red state” strength. That’s because the way delegates are allocated to the Republican National Convention, which picks the White House nominee, gives disproportionate clout to states that President Bush carried in 2004 above what their population would otherwise dictate. Thompson, of Tennessee, is currently polling best against his rivals in many of those “red states,” those that have voted Republican for president in recent years and have GOP...

    ...Even though the Democrats will probably nominate two of the most controversial people in American politics, Hillary Clinton for senator and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer for governor, they will probably face no serious challenge. Hillary and Spitzer got lucky. The two Republicans who might have given them fits — Rudy Giuliani and George Pataki — both have their eyes on the presidency and neither wants to go through a bruising, no-win battle in New York two years before making the big play for the White House. Pataki knows he is living on borrowed time. When 500,000 whites left New York...
  • Kerry Closes Gap To Make Florida Too Close To Call, Quinnipiac Poll Finds; Senate Race A Dead Heat

    Democratic challenger John Kerry has nearly closed a seven-point gap among Florida likely voters and now trails President George W. Bush 48 - 47 percent, a statistical tie, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Independent candidate Ralph Nader gets 1 percent. This compares to President Bush's 51 - 44 percent likely voter lead over Sen. Kerry in an October 7 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN uh-pe-ack) University. Among registered voters backing Bush, 80 percent say they are voting mainly for the President. Among Kerry supporters, 56 percent are voting mainly for the Democrat and 39 percent voting...

    Despite embarrassing losses on Election Day in races where she and her husband campaigned for Democratic candidates, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton stands a better chance of defeating President Bush in the 2004 election than almost any other potential presidential candidate in her party - a Quinnipiac College survey released Wednesday shows. Riding high from his recent victories, Bush would still defeat the former first lady by double digits - 55 to 38 percent, Quinnipiac found. But the only candidate who does better against Bush is former Vice President Al Gore. Still, if Democrats tap Gore for a rematch, he...
