    Big Ideas with Ben Weingarten ^ | 2018-06-29 | Ben Weingarten
    Democrat pollster and political consultant par excellence Doug Schoen has spent over 30 years advising presidents and prime ministers. Unlike most such political animals, he also has a deep understanding of political philosophy, which has moved further "right" the more he has seen government in action. Last but not least, Doug's one of those rare few remaining JFK Democrats who has always believed in defending capitalism and America's national interest. I had Doug on the Big Ideas podcast to draw out some of his lessons from a life well-spent as a master practitioner and student of politics, to share his...
  • Attacking Trump is now a losing strategy in BOTH parties

    Fox News ^ | 13 June 2018 | Douglas E. Schoen
    Tuesday’s primaries in Virginia, North Dakota, Nevada, South Carolina, and Maine indicated that in many congressional races, vehemently attacking President Trump will not be a winning strategy for either Democrats or Republicans in the Nov. 6 general election. As we’ve seen in earlier primaries this year, it was clear Tuesday that while strongly resisting President Trump is certainly damaging to Democrats, doing so is nothing short of catastrophic for Republicans. GOP voters in several races showed once again that they are rejecting lawmakers who decisively break with the president. Instead of building their campaigns on being anti-Trump, candidates in both...
  • Democrat Strategist: 'Entire Democratic Party Stinks From the Head Down, Need a 'Special Prosecutor'

    Democratic strateist Doug Schoen, who worked on Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign and Hillary clinton's 2008 campaign, said that, given the allegations of "rigging" the primaries against Bernie Sanders by the DNC and new revelations about the Clinton email and Uranium One scandals, it is time for a "special prosecutor" to look into the entire mess. Schoen, a Harvard Law School and Oxford University graduate, added that "the entire Democratic Party stinks from the head down, the whole process," and "everyone really has a stain on their hand." Schoen made his remarks on the Nov. 6 edition of Hannity, where he...

    Steyn On-line ^ | Nov. 1, 2016 | Mark Steyn
    A year and a half ago I bumped into Democrat pollster and longtime Clinton aide Doug Schoen in the green room in London just ahead of our respective Fox News appearances. I went first: Steyn appeared via remote from London on Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity." He pointed to Big Ben over his shoulder, saying, "The only reason the House of Parliament exists is that 800 years ago King John was forced to sign the Magna Carta that said even a king has to bow to the law. Eight-hundred years later, Queen Hillary says no, no, no, the laws...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Grab sound bite number eight. This is Doug Schoen. Doug Schoen is a longtime Clinton strategist, pollster, ally, supporter. He was on the Fox Report last night talking to Harris Faulkner, and she said, "What's your reaction to the FBI reopening this case?" SCHOEN: I have been a supporter of Secretary Clinton. But -- and the "but" is a big deal, at least to me -- given that this investigation is gonna go on for many months, if the secretary of state wins, we will have a president under criminal investigation with Huma Abedin under investigation --...

    Original Title:Fox News Analyst and Clinton Operative, Douglas E. Schoen, Accepted Millions of Dollars to Agitate for War with Russia In a remarkable conflict-of-interest, Fox News analyst and former Clinton operative Douglas E. Schoen has failed to disclosed to readers that he’s been paid millions of dollars from Ukrainian agents to incite a war between the United States and Russia. Before inciting war with Russia, Schoen worked for Bill Clinton and brokered meeting (for $40,000 a month) between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and billionaire oligarchs. This shocking story reveals an entangled web of foreign money, propaganda, and a complete...

    PJ Media ^ | June 1, 2016 | Michael Walsh
    The Dowager Empress of Chappaqua's doomed campaign begins to creak to a close. Veteran Democrat strategist Doug Schoen has the gory details: There is now more than a theoretical chance that Hillary Clinton may not be the Democratic nominee for president. How could that happen, given that her nomination has been considered a sure thing by virtually everyone in the media and in the party itself? Consider the possibilities. The inevitability behind Mrs. Clinton’s nomination will be in large measure eviscerated if she loses the June 7 California primary to Bernie Sanders. That could well happen...A Sanders win in California...
  • Dem Pollster: HILLARY IS TERRIFIED – She Blew $4 Million and Still Doesn’t Know How to Beat Trump

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 05/05/2016 | Jim Hoft
    Democrat pollster Doug Schoen told America’s Newsroom that Hillary Clinton blew $4 million to study how to defeat Donald Trump. She still has no clue on how to handle Trump and is terrified. Doug Schoen: Bill, you reported before that she spent $4 million on research. That’s what I do for a living. I don’t have a sense that she’s figured out with all that money spent how to approach and how to handle Donald Trump. And I think Trump is right, low road, high road Trump can win… If you spent four million dollars to try to figure out...

    Less than a month after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton distanced herself from President Obama by ridiculing his foreign policy, a key member of the Clinton kitchen cabinet is out with a new book that slams U.S. policy as “muddled, irresolute, and even feckless.” Doug Schoen’s double-barreled blast at Obama in the new book, The Russia-China Axis: The New Cold War and America’s Crisis of Leadership, is the latest sign that Clinton’s team will throw Obama under the bus if that’s what it takes to get her into the White House. “President Obama’s America is a passive, confused and...
  • Hillary Clinton Fans Pat Caddell And Doug Schoen Are Living In A Fantasy World

    Mediaite ^ | November 23, 2011 | Tommy Christopher
    In a recent op-ed for The Wall Street Journal, Fox News contributors Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen urged President Obama to “abandon his candidacy for re-election” in favor of “the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.” Their premise is that Sec. Clinton not only has a better chance to win, but “is the only leader capable of uniting the country around a bipartisan economic and foreign policy.” Now, most liberals will take one look at that byline and say “Who cares what a couple of ‘Fox News Democrats’...
  • One and done: To be a great president, Obama should not seek reelection in 2012

    One and done: To be a great president, Obama should not seek reelection in 2012 This is a critical moment for the country. From the faltering economy to the burdensome deficit to our foreign policy struggles, America is suffering a widespread sense of crisis and anxiety about the future. Under these circumstances, Obama has the opportunity to seize the high ground and the imagination of the nation once again, and to galvanize the public for the hard decisions that must be made. The only way he can do so, though, is by putting national interests ahead of personal or political...
  • OBAMA's poll numbers LOWER than BUSH's?

    There is much more to the fact that President Obama now polls lower than President Bush did at fifty days into his presidency than merely what bi-partisan pollsters Schoen and Rasmussen were able to point out this week. In nearly every category of performance, President Obama has adeptly demonstrated that he is in over his head, and sinking fast. "We the people" sense his inability to make sound decisions and thusly, the President has wiped out nearly all of the Republican support he enjoyed not long ago, and Independents are not far behind. When you consider the sector of the...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | March 13, 2009 | Douglas Schoen & Scott Rasmussen
    It is simply wrong for commentators to continue to focus on President Barack Obama's high levels of popularity, and to conclude that these are indicative of high levels of public confidence in the work of his administration. Indeed, a detailed look at recent survey data shows that the opposite is most likely true. The American people are coming to express increasingly significant doubts about his initiatives, and most likely support a different agenda and different policies from those that the Obama administration has advanced. Polling data show that Mr. Obama's approval rating is dropping and is below where George W....
