From Rasmussen Reports: Voters strongly believe the United States is a more divided nation these days, and they think both sides are to blame. Most are also ready to do something about it at the ballot box in November. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it […]
Fox News: Majority Thinks Obama Better at Campaigning Than Governing
I didn’t need a poll to tell me this, but here it is anyway: The consensus among American voters is Barack Obama is better at campaigning for the job than at doing the job, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. In addition, half of voters say the Obama administration doesn’t “get it.” As […]
Train Wreck: Only 10% of Voters Say Congress is doing a Good Job
Ouch, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have lead Congress to a new high… in lows: Voter unhappiness with Congress has reached the highest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports as 71% now say the legislature is doing a poor job.

Poll Question: If the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary were being held today who would you vote for?
[poll id=”16″] 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 […]
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 […]
Poll Question: Is the U.S. Economy Headed for a Recovery or a ‘Dead Cat Bounce’?

In the […]
Poll Question: How Would You Rate Barack Obama’s First 100 Days?
Poll Question: Who Do You Want As RNC Chair?
[poll id=”11″] 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 […]
Pollster: Media Polls Biased Against Republicans
I don’t put a lot faith in polls and this is why: Political polls conducted for most media organizations often are biased against Republicans, says Kellyanne Conway, one of the most respected GOP pollsters. As a result, Barack Obama’s lead over John McCain probably is exaggerated and is contributing unfairly to his momentum, says Conway, […]
Analyzing the Polls
AJ Strata has an interesting analysis of recent polls. Note the D-R-I split on “all voters” is 43-36-28. Most polls are weighting their sample by party affiliation, not policy preference. With the Democrat Presidential Primary drawing huge crowds and lots of GOP cross-overs to fight off Obama I would not want to put my reputation […]
