    The Birmingham News ^ | October 18, 2018 | Leada Gore
    President Donald Trump's approval rating among members of the military has slipped slightly since he took office two years ago, according to a poll by Military Times. Trump's most recent overall approval rating was 43.8 percent, down from 46.1 percent in 2016. His disapproval rating was 43.1 percent, up from 37 percent two years ago. Troops overwhelmingly support Trump's handling of military issues over that of former President Barack Obama, however. More than 60 percent said they believe the military is in better shape now than under Obama and nearly the same number have a favorable view of Trump's handling...
  • Prominent Electoral Prognosticator: The GOP's Chances Are Suddenly Looking Better

    If you're a regular reader, this trend doesn't come as a surprise.  We've been tracking and flagging it since the Kavanaugh ordeal, which galvanized legions of previously-disengaged or underwhelmed GOP-leaning voters.  We've demonstrated how that impact has continued to reverberate, particularly in Senate races.  And now, the mainstream conventional wisdom appears to be catching up.  Charlie Cook, who leads the vaunted Cook Political Report, is out with a new detailed analysis pointing to a clear uptick in Republicans' fortunes: Charlie Cook: “One question that keeps coming back up is whether those who led the out-of-control demonstrations on Capitol Hill against...
  • CNN Poll: More see Trump win likely as Biden leads crowded Democratic field

    MSN News ^ | October 14, 2018 | Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director
    Americans are becoming more likely to think President Donald Trump will win a second term in office, while Joe Biden stands atop a crowded field of Democrats perhaps looking to replace him, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS. The public is split over whether they think the President will win a second term -- 46% say he will and 47% say he won't. But that's a steep improvement for him since March, when 54% of adults said they thought he'd lose his bid for a second term. The share seeing a second Trump win in the offing...

    Lonely Democrat media (NY TIMES, CNN) still hoping Bredesen can pull it off. In the NY Times poll, it literally says "Its just one poll, though." Where was that attitude when they were predicting Trump to lose in 2016? 28,607 CALLS on this poll. 593 responses. Marsha Blackburn, the Republican candidate, leads our poll.
  • What I Learned From Watching New York Times Live Polls

    Self | October 13, 2018 | PJ-Comix
    The BIG TAKEAWAY I got from watching their live polling is that ONLY about 1 in every 40 or 50 people bother to even answer their calls. I was surprised because I thought it would be more like at least 1 in 10. So isn't there something unusual about people who actually do answer their phones and respond to the polling questions? Most likely people with lots of time on their hands. I rarely answer my phone if I don't recognize who is calling me or the phone number. And those rare times I do answer and realize the stranger...
  • New poll shows Democrat Shalala trailing GOP opponent in a district Trump lost badly

    Miami Herald ^ | Oct 11, 2018 | ALEX DAUGHERTY AND DAVID SMILEY
    Donna Shalala may be in trouble. Shalala, a Democrat running in a district that President Donald Trump lost by nearly 20 percentage points in 2016, is trailing Republican TV journalist Maria Elvira Salazar by 2 percentage points in a Mason Dixon-Telemundo 51 poll. The independent polls margin of error was 4 percentage points and included a pro-Trump non-party candidate who could siphon votes from Salazar. ... Shalalas campaign noted that Trumps approval ratings in the district in the poll are much higher than expected ... Its difficult for our campaign to accept that this is the only congressional district...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 10-9-18 | Alex Griswold
    Here's a sampling of headlines today from what are generally respected outlets: Buzzfeed: "Taylor Swift's Instagram Post Has Caused A Massive Spike In Voter Registration" Daily Beast: "Taylor Swift: Voter Registration Spike Follows Stars Political Awakening" Washington Post: "Taylor Swifts endorsement of Democrats causes spike in voter registrations" Variety: "Taylor Swifts Political Comments Lead to Spike in Voter Registration" I'd give theDaily Beasta little credit for hedging some, but then there's the lede: "Taylor Swifts first foray into politics appears to have produced impressive results." All the outlets made the same argument: that, a.) there was an increase in voter...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/8/2018 | Philip Klein
    After a blistering confirmation battle, Justice Brett Kavanaugh will take his seat for oral arguments on the U.S. Supreme Court with a skeptical public, a majority of which opposed his nomination. However, Democrats may not be able to exploit this fact in the upcoming elections as much as they hope, because the independent voters overwhelmingly disapprove of their own handling of the nomination by a 28-point margin, a new CNN/SSRS poll finds. Overall, just 41 percent of those polled said they wanted to see Kavanaugh confirmed, compared to 51 percent who said they opposed his confirmation. In previous CNN polls...

    SIREN: Pollsters Say Democrats Might Fall Short In Retaking the House...Which Could Trigger Another Meltdown (FULL TITLE) So, with Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court after a hellacious confirmation battle, its no shocker that liberals are angry. They lost. We won. Regardless, Democrats losing means it was a great day in America. Still, weve heard about the blue wave, the hyper-Democratic voter enthusiasm, and how some revolution will begin now that Kavanaugh has been seated, undoubtedly constrained to the most liberal parts of the country. The generic ballot advantage has favored the Democratic Party all year, though, in...

    Rasmussen ^ | October 08, 2018 | Rasmussen
    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trumps job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove. The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 38% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of zero (0). (see trends). This is Trumps highest Presidential Approval Index rating since early February of last year, shortly after he first took office. By comparison, Barack Obama earned a presidential approval index rating of -12 on October 8, 2010, in the second year of his...

    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz leads Democrat challenger Beto ORourke 50 to 44 in a CBS YouGov poll conducted October 2-5. The survey of 1,031 registered and likely Texas voters released Sunday showed Cruz with a six point lead over ORourke in the more recent CBS battleground tracker poll. Democrat voters were motivated to vote out of opposition to President Donald Trump while Republican voters indicated their vote for U.S. Senate is motivated out of support for President Trump, according to CBS. Respondents supporting Cruz indicated a greater draw to his issue stances than personal qualities while ORourke supporters relatively...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/08/2016 | By Brian C. Joondeph
    It’s been a tough few weeks for Democrats and the media. Grasping at straws and serial gang rapes, Democrats have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, only to have everything bounce off him, hitting them back squarely in the chops. Saturday afternoon, Kavanaugh was confirmed to the high court despite wailing and howling from snowflakes in the Senate gallery. Democrat hopes for a last-minute surprise fell flat. CNN wished for creepy porn star lawyer, Michael Avenatti, to pull a rabbit, or a pole dancer, out of his pocket at the last minute so...

    The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation ^ | October 3, 2018 | Les MacPherson
    'The deeper the swamp, the more popular the bulldozer' Do not be reassured by the apparent unpopularity in Saskatchewan of Donald Trump. A provincial poll commissioned by the CBC from the University of Saskatchewan Social Science Research Lab suggests a fraction less than 20 per cent of respondents are on side with Trump. Those on the other side are nearer to 75 per cent. Some will be horrified to learn Trump has any support here at all, but these are landslide numbers. If Trump were to run in Saskatchewan for public office, the poll says he'd get creamed. But wait...

    A new poll has bad news for Democrat Andrew Janz, who is running against Republican Rep. Devin Nunes in the November election. Pollsters at the University of California, Berkeley, Institute for Governmental Studies surveyed more than 5,000 likely voters in eight California congressional districts and found that Democrats were well positioned to capture a number of GOP-held seats considered by neutral observers to be in play in this years congressional elections. But in the 22nd District, the trend doesnt hold: Incumbent Nunes, a Tulare Republican, had the support of 53 percent of likely voters, while Democratic challenger Janz had 45...
