    Thanks to the improving economy, something very unusual is going on in American politics. American voters are separating the personal from the political in perhaps the most significant way ever. President Donald Trump's overall approval rating in most polls is creeping up lately, yet it remains at historically weak levels for a president at this stage in his first term. But at the same time, voters are starting to become more positive about the economy and more willing to give Trump the credit for it. Several polls are noting this trend, but it's most clear in the latest Quinnipiac College...
  • New Public Policy Poll is great news for Trump, terrible news for Clinton

    Last week Public Policy Polling, an acknowledged Democrat supporting firm, released the results of its latest poll measuring the relative support for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton with some references to Gary Johnson who might win his hometown. The news could not have been better for Trump. It showed him trailing Clinton 45/41 at a point in this race where Hillary Clinton is supposed to be pulling away. It cavalierly compares the current race to the 2012 election as if there is no difference between Donald Trump and the hapless stumblebum Mitt Romney or between Black male Barack Obama and...

    Well OK I'm not sure about the source. The link says "New York Quinnipiac Poll" with the headline, mentioning Trump and Clinton. But the article is basically a summary of what has been happening in the democrat race. So I'm posting it, with this notice that it seems to not match. :D

    Donald Trump would lead either Ted Cruz or John Kasich in a two-way race, according to the results of a Quinnipiac University national poll released Wednesday. Asked whom they would like to win the GOP nomination, 43 percent of the 652 Republicans surveyed said they wanted Trump to emerge as the party's choice in Cleveland, followed by 29 percent for Cruz and just 16 percent for Kasich, with 9 percent undecided.

John Kasich can stop the Donald Trump steamroller as Kasich falls behind the Republican front-runner 31-26 percent among Ohio likely Republican primary voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is at 21 percent with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 13 percent and Dr. Ben Carson at 5 percent.

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a candidate for president of the United States, celebrates his birthday on Tuesday. The Quinnipiac Poll has given Cruz the sort of birthday present that any man with aspirations for high office would want. The poll indicates that Cruz has surged to within four points, inside the margin of error, of the frontrunner Donald Trump in a national survey of registered Republicans. Trump comes in as 28 percent, with Cruz nipping at his heals at 24 percent. Sen Marco Rubio, R-Florida and Dr. Ben Carson follow at 12 and 10 percent respectively.Cruz's surge can be explained...

Sen. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) beats Clinton 46 percent to 41 percent, as does Gov. Chris Christie. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) beats her 46 percent to 43 percent.

    Pennsylvania? The last time a Republican won the Keystone State, the Berlin Wall was still in place. Yet Hillary Clinton trails both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio in Quinnipiac’s head-to-head matchups in today’s swing-state polling. She only trails Rubio in Ohio, the must-win state for Republicans, and loses to all three in Florida if the race were held today.And watch out for … Joe Biden. Or not: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are clear winners in the Democratic and Republican primaries in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, but Vice President Joseph Biden runs as well as...

    The more that the American people get a chance to look at the nuclear deal with Iran, the less they like it. Prior to the announcement of a deal (and the details of its commitments), public opinion favored a deal while remaining skeptical that it would stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. A week after the deal, a Pew poll showed a plurality opposed, 38/48; two weeks out, a CNN poll showed a majority opposed at 44/52.A new Quinnipiac poll shows a stronger majority opposed, but the worst aspect for the Obama administration is the collapse in support. Only...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush may be the most popular Republican presidential hopeful nationwide, but he trails his rivals badly in the critical state of Iowa, according to a new poll released Wednesday.... The top Republican in Iowa is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who garnered support from 21% of those surveyed. Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Marco Rubio of Florida, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are tightly packed for second place, each earned between 13% and 11% support. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who unveiled his campaign on Monday, tallied 7% of the vote....

    Most New Yorkers didnt approve of police officers turning their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio at the funerals of two officers shot to death in their patrol car, or of the comment by a union leader that the mayor had blood on his hands, according to a poll released Thursday. The Quinnipiac University poll found that 69 percent disapproved of the silent protest among police at the funerals of officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu and 77 percent considered union leader Patrick Lynchs comment too extreme.
  • A Devastating Poll on Obama -- and Obamacare

    "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 went into (limited) operation. Democrats hoped that Republicans would take a shellacking in public opinion...

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.

    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 Americas 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...
