A new Quinnipiac University Poll released this morning shows Connecticut voters aren’t happy with Gov. Dan Malloy or his proposed $1.5 billion in tax increases: Connecticut’s new governor, Dannel Malloy, gets no honeymoon as voters disapprove 40 – 35 percent of the job he is doing, with 25 percent undecided, according to a Quinnipiac University [...]

Tom Jenson, writing on Public Policy Polling’s blog notes that Congressional Republicans aren’t terribly popular Americans… or even their own base: Our last national generic ballot poll found the Republicans ahead 45-42 despite the fact that Congressional Republicans had a 24/61 approval rating. Even among respondents who said they were going to vote Republican the [...]
Poll Question: If the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary were being held today who would you vote for?
I’m not crazy about Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee so they’re not even on my short list. I love Sarah Palin but I think she’s been to damaged by partisan attacks to be viable candidate… Ditto for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, he’s to much of a lighting rod. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana [...]
Cassandra posted these questions from John Hawkins survey of rightwing bloggers at Villainous Company earlier and though I’d add my two cents. 1) Do you think the GOP will gain or lose seats in the House in 2010? They’ll pick up a handful of seats. 2) Do you think the GOP will gain or lose [...]
Ok folks, here’s the 64 trillion dollar question for you… I’m leaning toward dead cat bounce for various reasons… In short all the money the Federal Reserve and the Federal Government are pumping into the economy will have a positive effect and we will see GDP rebound in the short term. In the longer term [...]
It’s Masters time! I’m going with Phil Mickelson, yes I know he missed the cut at the Shell Houston open but we’re talking about Phil Mickelson here… I can’t think of another player for whom a previous week’s results predict a following week’s results less than they do for Phil Mickelson. Sure Tiger Woods may [...]
My initial gut reaction is Newt Gingrich, though, the more I think about it the more I’m leaning towards Michael Steele or Fred Thompson. As much as I like Newt he may be to polarizing for the job. The choice between Steele and Thompson is tough one, I don’t think we could go wrong with [...]
It’s a slow news day, and like Allahpundit I’m a blogger strapped for content so here comes a poll question:
Overall I thought this was John McCain’s best debate. Unfortunately, I don’t think it was a game changer. In fact I think the plumber, Joe Wurzelbacher, was the only real winner. A couple of quick points: 1) The Secret Service says they have yet to find anyone who can backup that Scranton ‘Kill Him’ Report. [...]
I’m calling it a draw… I though Sen. McCain did much better on the economy and health care than he did in the first debate. He slammed Sen. Obama on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and challenged the assumption that is was deregulation caused the financial crisis. He completely lost me with mortgage buy up [...]
On points I’d score it as a narrow win for Gov. Palin, overall on style and substance it was a landslide… She wiped the floor with both Senator Biden and moderator Gwen Ifill. Best line: “I may not answer the questions the way that the moderator or the Senator may want me to but I [...]
