    Rasmussen Reports ^ | September 6, 2018 | Brian C. Joondeph
    Election season is upon us again, two years after one of the wildest roller coaster political campaigns in recent memory. This time it’s Congress on the ballot, not Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton. Yet President Trump is still on the ballot – his agenda, his policies, his future. If Democrats win the House, we can expect Trump’s economic plans to be put on hold. Aside from the unlikely prospect of impeachment, Democrats will use every congressional committee under their control to investigate the president and his officials. Endless hearings, subpoenas and media coverage will have the Trump administration spending every...

    Three-in-10 Americans say they believe that President Donald Trump did something illegal regarding Russian involvement with his presidential campaign and 31% say he did something illegal regarding payments to two women to keep them from publicizing their alleged affairs before the 2016 election according to a new poll out by Gallup. A quarter of people say President Trump did something unethical when it comes to Russian meddling in the election. While those who believe he has done something illegal increased since August 2017 (up four percentage points), those who say he's done something unethical has gone down by 10 percentage...
  • 'Deaths of despair' in rural America helped Trump win presidency, study finds

    Ever since Donald Trump's improbable political rise, many have attributed his appeal among the white, male voter base to economic anxiety. Faced with unemployment and wage stagnation, these voters elected a president who promised to fight for jobs. A study published on Wednesday in the Journal of General Internal Medicine offers an additional explanation: declining health and rising death rates in rural Republican bastions helped tilt the presidential election toward Trump. "Changes in life expectancy were an independent factor in voting choices. Reduced health prospects are an important marker of dissatisfaction, discouragement, hopelessness, and fear — sentiments that may have...

    Welcome to Pollapalooza, our weekly polling roundup. Poll of the week A new Texas Senate poll came out this week showing Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke within 1 point of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. It gave new life to a familiar question: Could Texas finally flip blue? Normally, this would be the point where we lecture everyone about the dangers of putting too much stock in one poll. But this poll wasn’t even much of an outlier — it came on the heels of a few others that also show O’Rourke within a few points of Cruz. That’s an awfully close...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | August 29, 2018 | Salena Zito
    A new Harris Poll released this morning of more than 1,000 blue-collar Americans undermines the conventional wisdom that such workers are unsatisfied with their job and their future in their fields. A majority of the workers said they would recommend their jobs to friends and family members as something that has value and virtue in their lives and in their communities. The survey also shows 70 percent of blue-collar workers maintain a deep distrust of elected officials. The pattern: positivity for their lives and livelihoods and negativity toward national politics. The poll was commissioned by Express Employment, an Oklahoma City...

    This president is not going to be forced out of office because of infidelity. Congress has been down that road before — and it led nowhere. Last week was widely held to be the darkest of President Donald Trump’s presidency. His longtime former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to a campaign finance violation — paying off Trump mistresses in what amounted to an illegal campaign contribution — and indicated Trump put him up to it. It was, some said, the beginning of the end. Well, the end may come. But this is not the beginning of it. Trump is not...
  • NBC/WSJ poll: Trump approval 'remarkably stable' after a stormy week of bad news

    NBC News ^ | August 26, 2018 | Carrie Dann and Mark Murray
    After a week that saw President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman convicted on eight counts of fraud and his former lawyer plead guilty to felony campaign finance charges, the president's job approval rating remains virtually unchanged, new polling from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal shows. But the stability in Trump's approval rating also comes as more than half of voters say he has not been honest and truthful regarding the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. And fewer than three-in-ten voters are convinced that Trump himself is not implicated in the wrongdoing of the six of his...

    U.S. president Donald Trump is receiving higher-than-expected support from black Americans, according to new polling. But a vigorous debate is underway as to exactly how much black support he is receiving. According to a new Rasmussen survey, Trump is backed by a whopping 36 percent of black voters. Wait … what? If that sounds too high, it’s because it probably is. We aren’t convinced that number is accurate, although Rasmussen – along with the Trafalgar Group – was one of the few national firms to correctly predict Trump’s upset victory in 2016. They clearly knew something the other pollsters didn’t...

    The big difference in President Donald Trump's re-election campaign in 2020 could be the level of support he receives from the black community. And, the man most despised by the black community could become the most pro-black president of the modern era. A Rasmussen poll released last week indicates growing support for Trump among blacks. A big part of that is economics. For the first time ever, black unemployment has fallen below six percent. That means record numbers of black men, women, and youth are employed. Trump has created opportunities where for decades, the Democrats have offered only unfulfilled promises....

    The Hutchinson Report ^ | August 17, 2018 | Earl Ofari Hutchinson
    The first inkling I got that a lot more blacks liked Trump than they dared let on was during a dinner table discussion with a relative a couple of days before the 2016 presidential election. He flatly said that he was voting for Trump. There was dead silence, shock, and then loud outbursts of “no” followed by non-stop pillorying of him. He stuck to his guns and said Trump appealed to him because he represented change and he thought he’d be good for small business and would cut taxes. It was a textbook Horatio Alger, laissez faire rationalization that would...

    WaPo Opinion ^ | 8-3-2018 | Greg Sargent.
    It has become an article of faith among Republicans and some pundits: If only President Trump would stop with the racism and cruelty (as with family separations), the authoritarian assaults on the press and on the Mueller probe, and the panting embraces of Vladimir Putin, Republicans could bask in the glorious “Trump economy” and stave off big losses this fall. In this telling, if the election were about only the economy, Republicans would still face stiff headwinds but might at least weather them to the degree needed to hold the House. Friday morning, the monthly jobs report showed the unemployment...

    The Washington Post just with a story with this headline: “ impeachment odds hit record after Helsinki, says Irish bookmaker.” Seriously now? This is where the all-courts-press from the left to impeach President has headed — to a bookie operation in Ireland named Paddy Power that operates as the biggest phone-in betting outlet for both the Emerald Isle and the United Kingdom? Wow. That’s some reach. “The odds is impeached are now 2 to 1, or 33 percent, [Paddy Power spokesman Lee] Price told The Post, compared with 4 to 1, or 20 percent, on Monday before the news conference,”...

    President Trump targeted his 2016 election opponent during a manufacturing tour of the midwest Thursday afternoon. Trump attacked the number of women who voted for Hillary Clinton in a speech to the recently reopened Granite City Works Steel Coil Warehouse in Granite City, Illinois. The wide-ranging speech focused on trade and economic policies but Trump veered off to recall why some Americans voted for him in the underdog election. “They said manufacturing is obsolete,” Trump said of his Democrat opponents, “I said let’s figure this out. How do you make things if you don’t manufacture?” Trump then pressed his economic...

    Conservative: Liberals Still Don’t Get Trump Support Progressives are forever predicting President Trump’s political demise, but his support has risen by 6 percentage points since late 2017. Asks Henry Olsen at The Guardian: How do they keep getting it so wrong? For one thing, they don’t understand that “the often virulent behavior of anti-Trump partisans” has made Republicans “especially unwilling to abandon their leader, even when he stumbles.” For another, Trump’s base is far more conventional than they realize. Indeed, more than 80 percent of his vote came from people who’d voted for Mitt Romney four years earlier. And, like...

    Townhall ^ | July 23, 2018 | Guy Benson
    When I wrote last week that President Trump's capitulatory press conference with Vladimir Putin was a low moment in his tenure thus far, I wasn't out on a limb. Trump's equivocations prompted rebukes from scores of Congressional Republicans, as well as critiques from a number of national figures who are typically supporters and allies. Trump's secret sauce, however, is that the more he's attacked, the more Republican voters feel compelled to circle the wagons and rally to his defense -- hence the polling released last week in which super-majorities of GOP-leaning voters said they approved of his performance with Putin,...

    President Trump’s approval rating jumped up to 45 percent, the highest it has been throughout his presidency, according to a new poll released by the Wall Street Journal and NBC. The poll left an MSNBC panel shocked Sunday night by the improvement. WATCH: (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “President Trump has shown throughout his campaign and polling what I took away from the 2016 election is the American people authenticity,” said Kevin McLaughlin of Cogent Strategies Principle. “May not like what authenticity is, what he’s saying or how he’s doing it, but he doesn’t back down from it. When he goes out and does...
  • Poll Finds 70 Percent of Republicans Approve of Trump’s Handling of Russia, Even After Helsinki

    A new tracking poll from Reuters/ Ipsos Tuesday showed that rank-and-file Republicans not only continue to support President Trump, but refuse to believe he’s doing anything wrong. The most galling number from the survey is: 71 percent of Republicans approve of Trump’s handling of Russia. That support runs counter to much of the leadership of their own party, at minimum during the Helsinki summit. The poll was put into the field following the summit, so it should pick up any quiver of movement, but there still has not been a dip in GOP support for Trump’s Putin-loving approach. Overall, more...
