    Just when the public needed the media to play it straight, the growing bias in the press let them down and made the coronavirus crisis “worse than it needed to be,” according to a new analysis. Already facing a substantial trust gap, the latest Gallup/Knight Foundation survey found that people in the United States were concerned about the media exaggerating the illness or downplaying how the crisis caused substantial harm.

    ...The New York based Zogby Poll and pollster Jonathan Zogby spelled out the problems Biden faces. In his analysis, he said, “On the national front, presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden received a 52% favorable/40% unfavorable rating. What's worrisome for Biden is he did not receive a majority favorable rating from younger voters aged 18-29 (45% favorable/47% unfavorable), white voters (48% favorable/45% unfavorable), suburban voters (48% favorable/45% unfavorable) and suburban women (49% favorable/42% unfavorable).”...

    Despite a wave of critical news coverage and Democratic catcalls, President Trump sits at his “highest” approval in the latest Gallup survey, and above where four of the last six presidents, including Barack Obama and George W. Bush, were at this point of the first term.After two weeks of bad news on the coronavirus and economic front, Trump maintained his 49% approval rating, and his disapproval crept up just 1 point, to 48% in the Gallup survey of adults, a broad test.Gallup said that Trump’s approval is “tied for the best of his presidency.” From the Gallup Presidential Job...

    A CNN poll published Wednesday shows President Trump with a seven-point lead over Joe Biden in several battleground states – but the network was accused of burying its own findings. A review of transcripts found that only one CNN program on Wednesday mentioned the poll of registered voters that indicating 52 percent favor Trump, as opposed to 45 percent for Biden, in key battleground states.

    CNN put out a new poll on Thursday that shows President Trump is crushing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee in key battleground states — but the liberal “news” network downplayed that finding to the point of hilarity. “CNN Poll: Biden tops Trump nationwide, but battlegrounds tilt Trump,” said the headline.“Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s lead over President Donald Trump now stands at five points, but Trump has an edge in the critical battleground states that could decide the electoral college, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.“Could”? Uh, does. The popular vote across the country doesn’t matter. What decides...
  • SHOCK CNN POLL: Trump Leads Biden By 7 Points in the Battleground States, Despite Trailing By 5 Overall

    05/13/2020 2:59:01 PM PDT · by Conserv · 67 replies
    A new poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump in a standoff over their national support and their momentum in battleground states. A CNN study conducted by SRSS found that 51 percent of national registered voters back Biden, while 46 percent are behind Trump. This is a 2 percent drop for Biden since the poll had him at 53 percent in April while the president has jumped up 4 percent from his previous rating of 42. The poll featured an oversampling of registered voters living in battleground states, and the findings among that subset indicate that...
  • US Senate state of play: Dems favored to win control now?

    05/13/2020 5:28:35 AM PDT · by St. Louis Conservative · 66 replies
    Senate forecast is out and right now Dems have a (somewhat) clear advantage to take control. Here goes: Arizona: McSally hasn’t led a single poll. Trump trails Biden in most polls too so she can’t count on coattails. Dem gain. Colorado: Gardner is down double digits and Trump will Lose CO by double digits. This one is off the board. Dem gain. Maine: Collins is struggling in polling but she knows how to win in Maine. We’ll see. Currently a toss up. Georgia: Internal GOP polling just released shows Biden in the LEAD, albeit within the margin of error. Perdue...

    Fewer than half of Americans plan to go to concerts, movies, sports events and amusement parks when they reopen to the public until there is a proven coronavirus vaccine, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday. The Reuters/Ipsos poll surveyed 4,429 American adults from April 15 to 21, asking about their previous attendance at sports events and live concerts and their interest in attending if they reopened before a coronavirus vaccine is available. The poll questions noted a vaccine might not be available for more than a year. About four in 10 people who follow sports avidly and...
  • Trump hits 49 percent approval rating in Gallup poll (tied personal best)

    The Hill ^ | 5/01/20 | Max Greenwood
    President Trump’s job approval soared to 49 percent in a new Gallup poll released Thursday, making up a 6-point loss from a similar survey released just two weeks ago. The new approval number is tied for Trump’s personal best in Gallup’s polling data. A survey conducted by Gallup in mid-March similarly found his approval ticking up to 49 percent before it took a 6-point dive in the first half of April. The poll released on Thursday marked a rare instance in Gallup’s polling history in which Trump’s overall approval is above water. Only 47 percent of respondents said they disapprove...

    An internal poll conducted for the Georgia House GOP Caucus points to troubling signs for Republican leaders: President Donald Trump is deadlocked with Joe Biden and voters aren’t giving the White House, Gov. Brian Kemp or the Legislature high marks for the coronavirus response. The poll also suggests trouble for U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, showing the former financial executive with 11% of the vote and essentially tied with Democrats Matt Lieberman and Raphael Warnock. U.S. Rep. Doug Collins leads the November field with 29% of the vote, and outdoes Loeffler among Republicans by a 62-18 margin. ... -Voters are evenly...
  • Trump Supporters: Fear Not Those Discouraging Polls

    What are we to make of the dire predictions of President Donald Trump's political doom -- that he doesn't stand a chance for reelection in November? I've read numerous mainstream media reports gloating over polls that show presumed Democratic nominee Joe Biden surging and Trump plummeting. I'm not one to casually dismiss polls, but I view them skeptically, especially given their poor track record in more recent elections, and pollsters' brazen manipulation of them to sway public opinion. Don't the wildly failed polls forecasting a Hillary Clinton victory in 2016 warrant our skepticism? Preelection polling was uniformly wrong, but so...
  • Rasmussen Report: Trump-Biden Matchup Fires Voter Enthusiasm, Especially for Republicans

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | 04/30/2020
    There’s a lot more voter excitement about a Trump-Biden matchup compared to the last two presidential elections, especially among Republicans. Sixty percent (60%) of Likely U.S. Voters say a choice this November between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden is one they are excited about. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 34% will simply be voting for the lesser of two evils instead. (To see survey question wording, click here.) By comparison, however, just 41% were excited by a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton in March 2016. Only 44% were excited about a...

    It's nothing short of a scandal that 53 percent of Americans believe that this completely discredited document 'was real in its findings of Trump colluding with the Russians.' The media’s approval and credibility ratings may be low, but they still have a tremendous amount of political power. Whether they are attempting to destroy the life and reputation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, working overtime to protect the reputation of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, pushing the impeachment of a sitting president, attempting to control the outcomes of elections, or spending years peddling a false tale of treasonous collusion with...

    Most Americans would rather see former Vice President Joe Biden in charge of both the U.S. coronavirus response and the economy than current President Donald Trump, according to data from a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll. However, while Biden may have the upper hand in polling in those areas, the results fall strongly along party lines. Out of those surveyed, 55 percent of those surveyed chose Biden over Trump to handle the coronavirus pandemic. While 40 percent of those polled said they would rather see Trump handling coronavirus issues in the U.S., 87 percent of those who supported Trump in that...

    Polls appear to show that Mr Trump is losing ground to Democrat rival Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election. Amid the reports, the president is alleged to have shouted down the phone at his campaign manager Brad Parscale, three sources “close to the matter” told CNN. Mr Trump is said to have criticised Mr Parscale for the recent spate in falling poll numbers, and at one point threatened to take legal action. One Republican told CNN that: “He’s p** because he knows he messed up in those briefings.” Both the Trump campaign and the White House have not issued...
  • Fox News Poll: Biden leads Trump in battleground Pennsylvania

    With most Pennsylvania voters concerned about catching coronavirus and nearly six-in-ten believing the Trump administration was too slow to act, Joe Biden leads Donald Trump in that battleground state. Biden is preferred over Trump by 8 percentage points (50-42 percent), according to a Fox News Poll of Pennsylvania registered voters. That is slightly larger than the poll’s margin of sampling error. Eight percent are undecided.
