    This one has to sting for former President Donald Trump. A brand new poll of deep red Utah conducted by the Deseret News and Hinckley Institute of Politics shows the former president trailing not just one budding rival — Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). But also one of his most hated Republican foes, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). Yes, the new survey has Trump in third place — pulling in just 14.6 percent of the vote. DeSantis came out on top in the Deseret News/Hinckley survey — as he has in many recent state polls — with 24.2 percent. But the real surprise is Cheney. The defeated Wyoming congresswoman ranks second in the Deseret News/Hinckley survey with 16.4 percent support from Utah GOP primary voters. There has been no love lost between Trump and Cheney since the congresswoman accepted a seat on the House January 6 committee. Trump has repeatedly and loudly celebrated her defeat to Rep.-elect Harriet Hageman, while Cheney has missed nary an opportunity to place the blame for the Capitol riot squarely at the feet of Donald Trump....
    Joe Raedle/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump has hit the skids in a big way — and a new poll in the first-in-the-nation caucus state shows him trailing Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). A survey of 393 caucus-goers put out Neighborhood Research and Media Monday (via the Washington Examiner) shows DeSantis now leading Trump 32-30 among Iowa Republicans. That result represents a 23-point swing in the poll since June and a whopping 47-point swing since last November. What’s more, the undecided share of the Iowa vote also clocks in at 30 percent. And given the current trends, DeSantis seems a good bet to win the lion’s share of that category. Former Vice President Mike Pence was a distant third in the poll with 3 percent. No other candidate topped 1 percent. A breakdown of the numbers shows that Trump lost 7-9 points of ground with those who identify as very conservative, somewhat conservative, and moderate. DeSantis, meanwhile, gained double digits in all three of those categories. Neighborhood Research and Media pollster Rick Shaftan concluded that his findings make Trump a “severe...
    by Virginia Allen   Hispanic voters say the U.S. government should do more to enforce immigration laws, according to new polling data. An exit poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports and NumbersUSA found that more than half of Hispanics who voted in the 2022 midterm elections agree that the government isn’t doing enough to reduce illegal immigration. The survey asked Hispanic voters if the government is doing “too much” or “too little” to “reduce illegal border crossings and visitor overstays.” Among the 515 respondents, 57% said “too little,” while just 16% said “too much,” 17% said “about right,” and 11% said they weren’t sure. Specifically, even among Democratic Hispanic voters surveyed, 49% said they thought the government was doing “too little” to reduce illegal crossings at the border. “These results don’t surprise me,” Simon Hankinson, a senior research fellow in the Border Security and Immigration Center at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) “Wanting a secure border and an orderly, fair migration process with some limits is like asking for safe streets and lower crime—a...
    Former President Donald Trump is still Republicans' No. 1 pick for the 2024 GOP nomination, despite being blamed by a number of leaders for the party's disappointing performance in the midterms.  A Morning Consult/Politico survey released Tuesday found that 47 percent of potential Republican primary voters would back Trump, a change of just 1 percent, from the 48 percent who said they'd support the ex-president prior to the midterms.  But the poll also found growing enthusiasm for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who easily won releection over Democrat Charlie Crist, a former Florida governor and U.S. congressman, by nearly 20 points.  Thirty-three percent of potential GOP primary voters said they'd back DeSantis after the midterms, up from the 26 percent who said so before the November 8 elections.  Former President Donald Trump - who is expected to announce a 2024 presidential bid later Tuesday night - is still Republicans' No. 1 pick for the 2024 GOP nomination, despite being blamed by a number of leaders for the party's disappointing performance in the midterms   Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' (pictured) support among potential...
    With mere hours to go before the 2022 midterm election, polls are showing Ohio Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance blow past his Democratic rival Tim Ryan, even as Ryan still claims the race is a “dead heat.”  In a late Sunday night Twitter post, Ryan cited a survey result showing both candidates with 46 percent support among voters.  “Even with the GOP massively outspending us on the airwaves, we’re neck-and-neck in the polls,” Ryan wrote. “We’re going to win this, I can feel it.” The only survey publicized in recent weeks showing the result of which the 13th-district congressman spoke was a Siena College Research Institute Poll conducted between October 14 and October 19. Shortly thereafter, a Marist College survey undertaken between October 17 and October 20 showed the candidates tied at 47 percent among likely voters. But four polls conducted more recently all show Vance with a strong lead. Emerson College, the GOP-aligned firm Remington Research, and Cygnal’s tracking poll arrived at results putting Vance at between 5 and 10 points ahead of Ryan. And the most recent survey,...
    by Ben Whedon   Ohio Republican senatorial hopeful J.D. Vance has leaped to an impressive 8-point lead in Emerson College’s final pre-election survey. Vance led his Democratic rival, Rep. Tim Ryan by a 51%-43% margin, a significant jump from the previous month’s survey which showed Vance with 46% support to Ryan’s 45%, per The Hill. Just 4% of respondents were undecided in the November survey, and Vance’s lead increased to 9% when the survey asked them to choose. Conducted from Oct. 30-Nov.1, the poll surveyed 1,000 very likely voters and has a margin of error of +/- 3%. Vance’s lead well surpasses that threshold, and election forecaster RealClearPolitics rates the race as “leans GOP.” Vance enjoys a 5-point advantage in the site’s unadjusted polling average. Ryan and Vance clashed on the debate stage in late October, with each trying to tie the other to their respective party leader. Vance received the endorsement of former President Donald Trump. He endorsed the “Hillbilly Elegy” author despite Vance’s past criticisms, saying, “like some others, J.D. Vance may have said some not so great things about me in the past, but...
    by Arjun Singh   Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida is ahead of his Democratic opponent, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, by double digits in the state’s gubernatorial race, according to a new survey released on Wednesday. DeSantis led Crist by 14%, earning the support of 55% of respondents over Crist’s 41%, according to the University of North Florida’s Public Opinion Research Lab, which conducted the survey. The poll, if correct, would mean a landslide win for DeSantis and a marked increase from his 2018 margin of victory over Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, which was 0.4%. The survey was conducted between Oct. 17 and 24, the latter date being the day of the only debate between the candidates. During the debate, DeSantis called Crist a “worn-out old donkey” whom he was “looking to put out to pasture.” All this tells me is Democrats are aware how disastrous lockdowns are. pic.twitter.com/4HnuZuvPFn — Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) October 25, 2022 In response, Crist said that DeSantis “love[d] to bully people and the name-calling,” citing his criticism of children standing behind him at a press conference in March. “You...
    L: Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images R: Jeff Swensen/Getty Images President Joe Biden beats former President Donald Trump by four points in a new Federalist poll — but Vice President Kamala Harris crushes him by a gargantuan 15 points. After months underwater, the political fortunes of the president’s party underwent a reversal over the past few months — and with it President Biden experienced a rebound. Even after that rebound, the president’s approval rating remains in negative territory. But according to a new poll conducted by Susquehanna Polling & Research, the president still beats Trump in a head-to-head matchup by four points. You wouldn’t know that from the writeup of that poll, which was commissioned by the conservative Federalist. The Federalist’s Jordan Boyd instead focused on Biden’s approval ratings: As for President Joe Biden’s personal favorability ratings, the poll found that 45 percent of voters approve of the job Biden is doing as president while 49 percent say they disapprove. Regardless of their personal interpretation of Biden’s track record, voters decisively disapprove of how Biden has handled key issues such as inflation...
    For the first time in the 2022 race for U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, a poll shows Republican Mehmet Oz leading Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman.  The poll from Wick Insights indicates the celebrity surgeon has the support of 49.1 percent of likely voters while Fetterman garners the backing of 44.6 percent.  Participants in the survey, numbering 1,103, reflect the state’s moderate electorate. Forty-seven percent of respondents said they voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, whereas 48.5 percent said they voted for Joe Biden. Another 4.5 percent either chose another candidate or did not vote.  Wick’s poll brings the polling average in the race to a near-tie between the two candidates, with the data aggregator FiveThirtyEight indicating that Fetterman averages 46.6 percent support and that Oz has a mean of 44.4 percent.  The lieutenant governor’s popularity has suffered as a result of controversy around his handling of the stroke he suffered in May. Since that time, Fetterman has shown compromised ability to communicate verbally and has refused to release his medical records. He has only gone so far...
    by Arjun Singh   Democratic Lt. Gov. John Fetterman and Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz are statistically tied in a new survey of Pennsylvania voters, five days before they hold their first and only debate of the Pennsylvania Senate race and less than three weeks before voting begins, per a survey released on Thursday. Fetterman and Oz gained 46.3% and 45.5%, respectively, of the support of respondents, according to a poll conducted by Insider  for FOX29, Philadelphia’s Fox affiliate. Around 5% of voters remained undecided, according to the poll. However, the poll showed favorable metrics for Oz, with him having a 21.7% advantage among independent voters and an 8% advantage among voters between the ages of 40 and 64, the age demographic with among the highest propensities to vote, according to the U.S. News and World Report. Ahead of the Steelers-Buccaneers game, opinions generally fell along geographic lines: Pittsburghers said they would side with Democrats, while rural voters favored Republicans.

    by Debra Heine   Republican author and lawyer J.D. Vance leads Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan 46 percent to 44 percent in the U.S. Senate race in Ohio, according to GOP polling firm Cygnal. The survey of likely general election voters in Ohio also gave Republican Governor Mike DeWine a strong lead in the gubernatorial race, and Ohio Republicans leading in the races for Secretary of State, and Attorney General. Additionally, the poll showed that a near majority of Ohio voters (49.2) have a very unfavorably opinion of the job Joe Biden is doing. Overall, 57.2 percent of Ohioans disapproved of Biden’s job performance, the survey found. Vance did best among male voters, while Ryan performed best among female voters. Republican Governor Mike DeWine has a powerful +22 lead over Lt. Governor Jon Husted on the Gubernatorial ballot (56.9 percent to 34.6 percent) in the Cygnal poll. The survey also found that Republicans have a +6 advantage over Democrats (49.9 percent to 43.8 percent) on the generic congressional ballot in the state. Another 6.3 percent of likely voters were unsure...
    A new poll shows Rep. Lee Zeldin, the Republican nominee for New York governor, just two points behind incumbent Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul in what should be a blow-out race in the deep-blue state.  A Trafalgar Group survey released Thursday showed Hochul, who took over for disgraced Gov. Andrew Cuomo last August, with 44.5 percent support.  Zeldin, a Republican member of Congress and an ally of former President Donald Trump, received 42.6 percent support in the survey.  About 10 percent of the electorate remains undecided, while Libertarian Larry Sharpe hovered around 3 percent.  Incumbent Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul (left) is just two points ahead of her Republican challenger Lee Zeldin (right), currently a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, in a new Trafalgar Group poll  Republican Rep.

    Young adults in California experience mental health challenges at alarming rates, with more than three-quarters reporting anxiety in the last year, more than half reporting depression, 31% experiencing suicidal thinking and 16% self-harm, according to the results of a survey commissioned by the California Endowment. The numbers reflect a years-long trend of worsening mental health among young people that was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, experts say. The poll of nearly 800 Californians ages 18 to 24 also found young people facing significant barriers to getting help — with nearly half of those who wanted to speak to a mental health professional saying they had been unable to do so, and many saying cost or lack of access had stopped them. The challenges reported by the poll are “extremely concerning,” said Dr. Benjamin Maxwell, interim director of child and adolescent psychiatry at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, who was not involved in the survey. “As a society we’ve underfunded mental health support for people for decades, and some of that is coming out in this survey.” The poll reveals a generation...
    As inflation weighs on the public, 71% of workers claimed their salary and wage growth is being outpaced by a rise in the cost of living. According to the 12th annual Workplace Benefits Report from the Bank of America, workers said their compensation is falling behind as inflationary pressure mounts. COSTCO CFO SAYS STORE'S HOT DOG AND SODA COMBO 'FOREVER' $1.50 The report revealed 80% of workers are concerned about inflation and that 62% are worried about their personal finances. Half of workers reported taking action due to financial hardship in the past six months. Some are dipping into their savings, while others are working more hours or seeking higher-paying jobs, among other things. Aside from economic concerns, the survey also showed that half of companies report having diversity and inclusion programs for their employees. Nearly three-quarters of employers "believe that diversity and inclusion programs are important for retaining talent."

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) leads Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) 49% to 47% in the latest Civiqs survey of likely voters in the state’s November election for U.S. Senate. While polling in the key Florida race continues to show a close contest, the Civiqs poll of 617 likely voters in the state offered some bad news for Rubio despite his lead. “Rubio is viewed favorably by 41% of Florida likely voters, and unfavorably by 51%. Demings has a similar 40% favorable rating, with 47% unfavorable and 13% who are still unsure about her,” the polls’ survey noted. Rubio’s unfavorability rating being over 50% in the close race could spell trouble for the two-term incumbent – who after a presidential run is a very well-known commodity to Florida voters. The poll also surveyed the race for governor in the sunshine state. Incumbent Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) leads Democratic challenger and former governor, Charlie Crist, 52% to 45%. DeSantis scored a 51% favorability rating in the state, with 47% of likely voters viewing him unfavorably. Crist only has...
    A shocking poll revealed nearly half of San Franciscans have been robbed in the past five years as the city continues to attempt to clean up its act, while the city still debates the 'ethics' of sharing videos of the suffering.  The poll asked 1,653 people in the city by the bay how they felt about crime, policing and violence in San Francisco.  When asked, 'During the last five years, was any item you owned ever stolen from you, or did that not happen during that time?' a shocking 45 percent said yes. Even worse, while just 43 percent of white people reported being victims of theft, 54 percent of black San Franciscans and 55 percent of mixed race San Franciscans surveyed said they'd been robbed in recent years, according to SF Chronicle.  Crime is up 8.5 percent in San Francisco through September 11 compared to 2021, according to the city's data. While that's less than cities like New York (up 35 percent) and Chicago (up 37 percent), homicide is the only crime to see a decrease from last year. ...
    Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images President Joe Biden‘s approval rating has surged nine points in an Associated Press poll amid months of bombshell developments that have shifted the political terrain going into the midterms. The latest AP/NORC poll shows that Biden has jumped nine points since the last poll was taken — in  July. AP White House correspondent Josh Boak reported on the poll by noting it’s not all good news for the president: Support for Biden recovered from a low of 36% in July to 45%, driven in large part by a rebound in support from Democrats just two months before the November midterm elections. During a few bleak summer months when gasoline prices peaked and lawmakers appeared deadlocked, the Democrats faced the possibility of blowout losses against Republicans. … The president’s approval rating remains underwater, with 53% of U.S. adults disapproving of him, and the economy continues to be a weakness for Biden. Just 38% approve of his economic leadership as the country faces stubbornly high inflation and Republicans try to make household finances the axis of the upcoming vote....
    The latest Survey USA poll for KSTP television finds Gov. Tim Walz with a commanding 18-point lead over GOP challenger Scott Jensen – 51% to 33%. Walz in this survey prevails among three crucial groups of voters by huge margins – women (58% to 30%), independents (53% to 23%) and suburbanites (47% to 35%). This is a big change from MinnPost’s early June poll of likely voters by Change Research showing Walz with a narrow 42% to 40% lead over Jensen and an early May KSTP poll of likely voters showing Walz ahead by only 44% to 39%. This latest survey, conducted from April 30 through Sept. 4, is weighted by gender, age, education and home ownership to reflect the state population and has a margin of error of 4.9% among the 567 likely voters sampled. SurveyUSA’s methods receive an “A” grade from Nate Silver’s 538 analysis site. The site has found no detectable bias toward Democrats and Republicans in the pollster’s surveys. The partisan breakdown of the survey’s likely voters – 35% GOPers and Democrats and 26% independents, reveals no obvious partisan bias...
    George Frey/Getty Images The race for Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) Senate seat continues to heat up as the latest internal poll from independent challenger Evan McMullin shows him leading the incumbent by 1 point. McMullin, who ran for president in 2016 and won over 20 percent of the vote in Utah, is running a campaign aimed at tying Lee to Trump in a deep red state that has long been skeptical of Trumpism. Lee “quickly became a loyal sycophant for the aspiring authoritarian, trading away his oath to the Constitution to serve the unconstitutional ambitions of that one man,” McMullin charged at a campaign event on Wednesday. McMullin’s internal polling seems to show that the message is working. The poll conducted by Impact Research shows McMullin leading Lee 47 to 46 percent. The Democrats in Utah bowed out of the race in favor of Mullin’s bid. The McMullin poll also noted, “Lee’s job rating has dropped a net 11 points since June and it is now underwater by a 3-point margin (47% positive / 50% negative).” NBC News noted Thursday...
    Political consultant Ward Baker of Baker Group Strategies issued a memo calling Tennessee 5th Congressional District Democrat nominee Heidi Campbell’s internal poll “bogus.” Campbell’s campaign released on Monday what it called internal poll results that showed the Democrat TN-5 candidate with a 3 percent lead over Republican nominee Andy Ogles. “There are number of reasons why you should take this data with a grain of salt. The bottom line is Andy Ogles is NOT down 3% to Heidi Campbell. In fact, Andy Ogles is strongly positioned to defeat Heidi Campbell in November,” said Baker in the memo. The consultant for many elected officials, including U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), explained why the poll methodology was flawed. “First, in terms of methodology, the sample size for this survey was n=1,622 likely voters. Interviews were completed via internet and phone interviews. The polling memo did not specify if those phone interviews were completed via live calls or IVR. That sample size is unnecessarily high for a congressional survey. Such a high sample size for a congressional survey indicates that many of those...
    Only older men and voters without a college degree preferred Republican nominee Tudor Dixon, according to the survey. An AARP poll released Thursday found Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer leading her Republican challenger among older women, who will make up a crucial voting bloc in November's midterm elections. AARP, which represents nearly 38 million members, commissioned the bipartisan polling team of Fabrizio Ward and Impact Research to conduct the survey, contacting 1,365 likely voters. The survey estimated a margin of error of between 3.4% and 4.9% in different population segments. The poll found that Whitmer has a slim seven-point lead over Dixon among all likely voters (51%-46%).​​ Those surveyed were much more familiar with her than the relatively unknown Dixon. Just one in five likely voters had an impression of Dixon, and of those who did, 38% characterized her as favorable versus 41% unfavorable. Whitmer leads GOP gubernatorial nominee Tudor Dixon by 17 points (56%-39%) among female voters over 50, according to the survey. Black voters also preferred Whitmer by a 63-point margin. Only two groups showed a preference for...
    by Scott McClallen   A new poll shows the Michigan governor’s race is close between incumbent Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and Republican challenger Tudor Dixon less than three months before the 2022 election. AARP Michigan released a 2022 election survey that shows Whitmer leading Dixon 51% to 46% among all likely voters, with a similar split (50/46) among voters ages 50+. The poll showed Whitmer leads by 17% among women and women 50+, while Dixon leads by 7% among men overall and 10% among men 50+. “Michigan voters 50 and over are a critical voting demographic that all candidates are competing for in this midterm election,” AARP Michigan State Director Paula Cunningham said in a statement. “With the price of necessities like gas, groceries and prescription drugs so high, Michigan residents want their leaders to provide solutions to inflation and the rising cost of living. The message is clear, if candidates want to win, they should pay attention to the issues that matter to Michiganders 50-plus.” The survey also found A significant majority (71%) think the country is headed in the...
    Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes leads incumbent Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) in a new poll of the Wisconsin Senate race on the strength of the Democrat’s advantage with independent voters. The Marquette Law School survey showed Barnes leading Johnson among registered voters 51% to 44%, an advantage built on the lieutenant governor’s 52% to 38% edge with independents. Barnes, fresh off of his victory in the Democratic primary, also enjoyed better favorable ratings than Johnson, who is seeking a third term. In the poll, 37% had favorable impressions of the Democrat, and 22% viewed him negatively, compared to the incumbent’s 38% favorable and 47% unfavorable rating. The Marquette Law School poll was in the field Aug. 10-15 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points. REPUBLICAN DON BOLDUC RISING IN NEW HAMPSHIRE SENATE PRIMARY, ELICITING CHEERS FROM DEMOCRATS Barnes’s early lead was not the only good news for Democrats in the survey. Gov.

    For the most part, residents of Asia-Pacific can travel again. But some are more confident about packing their bags than others. Travel confidence is "diverse and nuanced" in the region, according to a new survey commissioned by the travel website Booking.com. Some 11,000 people in the region were polled about their comfort levels and concerns, as well as their willingness to tolerate the types of disruptions that have become common since the pandemic began. The rankingsThe survey results were published in Booking.com's inaugural "Travel Confidence Index," which ranked the places in order of most to least confident. Key findings from the study include: No. 1: IndiaAccording to the survey, Indians emerged as having the highest travel confidence. Some 86% of respondents indicated plans to travel within 12 months — a number surpassed only by those in China — though trips in both countries are expected to be largely domestic. Moreover, 70% of respondents indicated they would accept anticipated travel disruptions, the highest of the survey. Indians have faith in their country too — 85% indicated India can safely welcome international travelers...
    The majority of likely Democratic voters prefer any nominee other than President Joe Biden in 2024, according to a poll. The new data revealed that 75% of voters would like someone else to represent the Democratic Party on the 2024 ticket. The new CNN poll is a significant contrast from the same poll from January and February in which 45% of Democratic voters reported wanting Biden as their next presidential nominee. Of those who do not want Biden to be the nominee, 42% say it's because they don't want him to be reelected, while 32% don't believe he can beat Republicans. A recent survey of New Hampshire Democratic voters similarly found that Biden was only 16% of the Democratic voters' preference, while Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg garnered 17%. Vice President Kamala Harris only garnered 6% of support from voters as a preferred presidential nominee. TWO-THIRDS SUPPORT TERM LIMITS FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICES: POLL Meanwhile, 55% of likely Republican and Republican-leaning voters reported that they don't want former President Donald Trump as their nominee, either. This is...
    Mark Wilson/Getty Images The meteoric rise of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in the Republican party continues — with a new poll showing him closing the gap on former President Donald Trump in another battleground state. According to a new survey published Tuesday by the Detroit News and WDIV, Trump does still have a lead in the 2024 GOP presidential primary in the key state of Michigan — but that lead is extremely narrow. The former president is on top with 45.2 percent of the vote, while DeSantis lurks just behind with 41.6 percent. The governor’s 3.6 percent deficit falls within the poll’s 4.4. percent margin of error. This latest poll comes amid a wave of positive momentum for the Florida governor. New polls released within the last month have shown DeSantis closing in on Trump nationally — with one major survey putting him within single digits. DeSantis was also shown to be leading Trump in the all-important primary state of New Hampshire, according to a recent poll in the Granite State. Perhaps most eye-opening of all, in recent Trump-DeSantis developments,...
    A greater percentage of Americans believe former President Donald Trump should run again in 2024 than say the same of President Joe Biden, a Politico/Morning Consult survey released this week found. The survey asked respondents if they believe Trump should run for president in 2024. Thirty-five percent, overall, said he either “definitely” or “probably” should, while 61 percent said he either “definitely” or “probably” should not. However, the survey asked respondents the same of Biden and found that even fewer believe he should run for reelection in 2024. According to the survey, 28 percent believe Biden should either “definitely” or “probably” run again in 2024. Of those, 14 percent said he “definitely” should, compared to the 25 percent who said Trump “definitely” should. Further, slightly more — 64 percent — said Biden “definitely” or “probably” should not run again in 2024. Trump is seeing far more support among the Republican base than Biden is receiving from Democrats with respect to a potential 2024 presidential bid. Sixty-six percent of Republican voters want Trump to run again, compared to 51 percent of...
    Sean Rayford/Getty Images Despite a number of recent highly-scrutinized viral gaffes, and revelations that he fathered three children previously unknown to the public, Herschel Walker is very much in the hunt in the Georgia Senate race. A new poll published Thursday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows Walker trailing Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) by just three points. That’s within the poll’s 4.4 percent margin of error. According to recent reports from The Daily Beast, not only did Walker hide the existence of his three children, he actually lied to his own campaign staff in an attempt to cover up. The staff confronted Walker with documentation about one of the children, and the candidate fessed up to that child’s existence. But he falsely told them there were no other children, when in fact there were two others. Walker has also drawn headlines for a number of awkward comments about a variety of subjects. Earlier this week, he delivered an explainer on climate change which many regarded as bizarre. He has also delivered several puzzling responses to the Uvalde school shooting. Though the...

    Kari Lake, former Phoenix Fox 10 news anchor, is maintaining her lead in Arizona’s Republican primary even as early voting is underway, although challenger Karrin Taylor Robson has appeared to narrow the gap, a HighGround Public Affairs survey found. According to the survey, Lake leads with 39 percent support, followed by Robson with 35.3 percent. Nearly one in five, 19.2 percent, said they remain undecided.  This reflects a massive jump for Robson from the HighGround’s April poll, where Lake led with 30.3 percent of the vote and Robson trailed with 9.5 percent support.  File/Former Fox News Anchor Kari Lake speaks during the Rally To Protect Our Elections conference on July 24, 2021 in Phoenix, Arizona. (Brandon Bell/Getty Images) “Momentum appears to be building for Karrin Taylor Robson as early ballots drop,” Chuck Coughlin, President and CEO of HighGround said in a statement, although he noted that Lake has held a “fairly steady number” over the past few months: She has stayed true to the narrow constituency that made her a front-runner in the first place.  Robson, on the other hand, appears to be...
    U.S. President Joe Biden delivers the commencement address during the graduation and commissioning ceremony at the U.S. Naval Academy Memorial Stadium on May 27, 2022 in Annapolis, Maryland.Chip Somodevilla | Getty Images A large majority of Democrats want someone other than President Joe Biden to be their party's candidate for the White House in 2024, according to a new poll. Just 26% of Democrats said they would prefer Biden as their party's candidate, with 64% saying they want to see someone else head the ticket, according to The New York Times/Siena College Research Institute survey of registered voters. While that finding is potentially very bad news for the 79-year-old incumbent's re-election hopes, the poll has even worse news for Biden when it comes to younger Democratic voters, and to how all voters see the country's direction. A whopping 94% of Democrats who are less than 30 years old said they want someone besides Biden to be their nominee, the survey found.CNBC PoliticsRead more of CNBC's politics coverage: Russian rocket attack on Donetsk apartment block kills 24; Moscow temporarily halts...
    Most Americans expect already-exorbitant gas prices to continue rising over the next six months, a new Rasmussen Reports poll found. Eighty-nine percent of 1,000 U.S. adults polled say they are paying “more for a gallon of gas today compared to six months ago,” and 78 percent say those prices will most likely continue to increase over the next half of the year. Fifty-nine percent of those think it is “very likely” they will pay even more for a gallon of gas six months from now. Rasmussen Reports quoted the U.S. Energy Information Administration, which found that the retail price of a gallon of gasoline has increased roughly $1.60 since January, from $3.28 to $4.87. “Although it has declined from its mid-June peak of $5.01, the price of gasoline is now $2.76 more per gallon than it was on Election Day 2020,” the survey report states.  Republicans (93 percent) and independents (77 percent) are more likely than Democrats (67 percent) to believe gas prices will continue climbing, though strong majorities of each demographic agree. However, only 38 percent of Democrats believe...
    Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 presidential matchup, June’s Harvard Caps Harris Poll revealed. The survey, which happened to show Trump standing as the most popular politician in the country, pitted Trump against Biden in a hypothetical matchup. In that scenario, Trump led Biden by three percentage points — 43 percent to 40 percent. Another 17 percent remained unsure. Trump’s lead widened even further when matched against Vice President Kamala Harris, leading by six percent, or 45 percent to 39 percent. In that matchup, 16 percent remained undecided.  The survey, overall, found Trump led Biden on nearly every issue plaguing the country. For example, in January 2021, 56 percent approved of Trump’s handling of the economy. Currently, just 32 percent said the same of Biden.  A majority of voters, 71 percent, said Biden should not run for a second term, and a plurality, 45 percent say he should not because he is a “bad president.” Sixty percent also said they have “doubts about his fitness”: Is Joe Biden mentally fit to serve as President of the...
    According to the poll, 73% of Republicans say that "Democrats are generally bullies who want to impose their political beliefs on those who disagree." At nearly the same percentage (74%), Democrats view Republicans as bullies who want to impose their political beliefs on others. There were 49% of poll participants who "avoided political discussions with others because I don’t know where they stand." Politics has caused a quarter of Americans to lose friends and avoid friends or relatives for their political beliefs, according to the poll. There were 38% who "unfriended or stopped following someone on social media because of their political views." The survey found that 26% of people stopped doing business with a company or brand because of their politics. "While we've documented for years the partisan polarization in the country, these poll results are perhaps the starkest evidence of the deep divisions in partisan attitudes rippling through the country," said Republican pollster Neil Newhouse – who helped conduct the poll. Last month, a poll revealed that 44% of Americans believe the "U.S. seems headed toward...
    Seven in ten American voters say they do not want President Joe Biden to run for reelection in 2024, a recent survey from Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll found. The poll, which was shared with the Hill, revealed that 71 percent of voters do not want the president to run for a second term, whereas 29 percent believe he should. The poll also found that only 30 percent of Democrats are willing to vote for the president in a Democrat presidential primary for 2024, according to Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey. Among the reasons why respondents think Biden should not run again include 45 percent saying that “he is a bad president,” about one-third saying that “he is too old,” and about one-quarter saying that “it is time for a change.” The survey also found that the president is suffering from low approval numbers, currently polling with an overall approval rating of 38 percent. Respondents also disapprove of the way the president is handling certain key issues, including “inflation (28 percent), the economy (32 percent), [and] stimulating jobs (43 percent).” The...
    Former President Trump’s lead on President Joe Biden increased over the last month, an Emerson College Polling survey released Friday found. Biden’s approval rating is underwater, down 13 percent as 40 percent approve and 53 percent disapprove of his job performance. However, that reflects a two-point uptick in approval since last month. Despite that, the survey found former President Trump increasing his lead in a hypothetical match-up against Biden. According to the survey, 44 percent choose Trump in a hypothetical 2024 presidential matchup, compared to 39 percent who said the same for Biden. Another 12 percent indicated they would vote for someone else, and five percent remain unsure. Trump’s five-point lead reflects an increase from May’s results: BREAKING: Trump lead Biden by 5 points in 2024 Presidential Election.

    Half of Democrats say abortion should “never be banned,” even, presumably, up until the moment of birth, a YouGov/The Economist survey released this week found. The survey asked respondents to identify the point at which they believe abortion should be banned. Most, 54 percent, believe abortion should be banned by the end of the first trimester, but in the breakdown, 20 percent said it should be banned after conception, while 18 percent said it should be banned after 6 weeks (when a fetal heartbeat is detected). Another 16 percent said it should be banned after the first three months, or the end of the first trimester. Overall, 28 percent said abortion should “never be banned.” But perhaps more stunningly, 50 percent of Democrats hold the same view, asserting that abortion “should never be banned,” presumably up until the moment of birth — a view radical pro-abortion activists proudly uphold. That is not an exaggeration either, as former Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) in 2019 supported legislation in his state that would have allowed a woman to get an abortion even as...
    More than quarter of Americans - 28 per cent - said that it might 'soon be necessary to take up arms' against the US government, according to a new poll released Thursday.  Of those who felt that way, 37 per cent currently own guns, the poll found.   The poll also showed that a majority of Americans - liberal and conservative both - felt that their government was 'corrupt and rigged against everyday people like me.' The survey, which polled a pool of 1,000 US voters, was conducted by the University of Chicago's Institute of Politics in May. The poll revealed deep divides between Americans of differing viewpoints, with nearly identical percentages of Republicans and Democrats (73 and 74 per cent) saying that the other side 'are generally bullies who want to impose their political beliefs on those who disagree.' The poll comes as the US House Select Committee's investigation into President Trump's role in the violent January 6 insurrection against the Capitol is being publicly broadcast across the nation. The survey found that overall, 49 per cent of Americans agreed that...
    Gun violence and crime are the top concerns among Latino voters ahead of November's midterm elections and could erase gains Republican candidates have made campaigning on a sagging economy and soaring inflation costs, according to a new poll released by Axios and Ipsos on Thursday. Worries over gun violence and crime surged ahead of inflation for the first time and rose sharply following last month's massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, where an 18-year-old fatally shot 21 people and wounded 17 others. BIDEN 'DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED' WITH SUPREME COURT GUN RULING: 'LIVES ARE ON THE LINE' The mid-June survey was conducted two weeks after Uvalde and underscored how deeply that tragedy, as well as another mass shooting the week prior in Buffalo, New York, shook the public and forced lawmakers to take on the politically potent concern. Democrats' generic advantage over Republicans among Latino adults has dropped since March, with meteoric rises in inflation fueling the dissatisfaction, according to the survey. "Going into this poll, inflation and the economy was the dominant issue," Ipsos Senior Vice President Chris...
    L: Seth Herald/Getty Images; R: Joe Raedle/Getty Images Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is within single digits of ex-President Donald Trump in a new national poll, the closest he’s been in this or any other reputable poll — and that’s before Tuesday’s bombshell testimony. A sample of Republican and Republican-leaning respondents to a new Yahoo! News/YouGov poll were asked “Who would you rather see as the Republican nominee for President in 2024?” and given a choice between Trump and DeSantis. Among registered voters, 45 percent prefer Trump, while 36 percent prefer DeSantis — a nine-point difference that normally wouldn’t seem very close. But for Trump, in a reputable Republican primary poll, it’s the closest anyone has gotten. DeSantis came within about a point of Trump in a poll commissioned by never-Trumper John Bolton‘s SuperPAC, but Trump typically leads DeSantis by 20 or 30 points in GOP polls. He trailed Trump by 23 and 16 in the last two Yahoo! polls of registered voters, in January and February. DeSantis has dominated the non-Trump candidates for a very long time. And DeSantis’s support...
    Most New Hampshire residents do not want President Joe Biden to run for reelection in 2024, a University of New Hampshire/Granite State Poll released this week revealed. Overall, the survey found that 65 percent do not want Biden to run again in 2024. Of those, 52 percent “definitely” do not want him to run. This reflects a 12-point increase from the 53 percent who said the same nearly a year ago, in July 2021.  Currently, 29 percent say they want Biden to run, but of those, only 9 percent “definitely” want him to run. Again, that reflects an eight-point drop from the 37 percent who expressed support for Biden running for reelection in July 2021.  Further, the survey found that the number of Granite State Democrats wanting Biden to run has dropped, plummeting from 74 percent in July 2021 to 54 percent in June 2022. Just ten percent of Republicans and nine percent of independents want to see Biden run again in 2024. Coinciding with that is the fact that Biden remains widely unpopular in the state he won in 2020,...
    Confidence in the Supreme Court has hit a historic low among the public, according to poll findings reported Thursday. Twenty-five percent of citizens surveyed said they have a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of trust in the Supreme Court, which is down 11% since 2021, when the same survey showed 36% of survey takers trusted the court, according to Gallup. The previous overall confidence low was 30% in 2014. RETIRING BREYER AND ALITO SPAR OVER IDEOLOGICAL LINES IN SUPREME COURT GUN RULING The court, which boasts a 6-3 conservative majority, has experienced a loss of confidence support primarily among Democrats and independents in the past year, the Gallup survey showed. Confidence from Republicans increased by 2 percentage points, from 37% to 39%. The decrease in confidence from Democrats saw the biggest change, decreasing from 30% to 13% between 2021 and 2022. Confidence among independents dropped 15 percentage points from 40% to 25%. The latest survey was conducted between June 1-20 and polled 1,015 adults through cellphones and landlines, all aged 18 and older, living...
    Former President Trump leads President Biden in a hypothetical 2024 presidential matchup, a Redfield & Wilton Strategies survey released this week found. The survey asked respondents, “If the candidates for the Presidential Election on November 5, 2024 are as follows, for whom will you vote?” It gave respondents the choice between Biden, Trump, or a variety of generic “others.” Trump ultimately edges out Biden by three percentage points — 41 percent to Biden’s 38 percent. Overall, 13 percent remain undecided.  “Large majorities of 2020 Donald Trump voters (84%, -4) and Joe Biden voters (81%, +6) maintain that they would again vote for those respective candidates,” the survey found.  2024 Presidential Election Hypothetical Voting Intention (15 June): Donald Trump: 41% (-1)Joe Biden: 38% (–)Dont know: 13% (+1) Changes +/- 29 Mayhttps://t.co/TQ8fZvGjrP pic.twitter.com/ODCtm3ZNKE — Redfield & Wilton Strategies (@RedfieldWilton) June 17, 2022 While a majority of Democrats say they would vote for Biden and a majority of Republicans say they would vote for Trump, Trump enjoys more support from his base — 82 percent compared to Biden’s 75 percent.  Trump also edges...
    Belief in God among U.S. adults sank to an all-time low this year, according to recent data from a Gallup survey. According to the survey, most U.S. adults — 81 percent — believe in God. But while that figure seems high, it is actually the lowest percentage ever reported in this survey. Up until 2011, over 90 percent said they believed in God, but the number has continued to drop, now down eight points from the 89 percent who expressed belief in God in 2016. The previous low was set in 2014, when 86 percent said they believed in God. When Gallup asked the same question in 1953, 1954, 1965, and 1967, 98 percent said they believed in God.  Overall, 17 percent currently say they do not believe in God, and according to the survey’s findings, young people and leftists are the most likely not to believe: Belief in God has fallen the most in recent years among young adults and people on the left of the political spectrum (liberals and Democrats). These groups show drops of 10 or more percentage...
    Belief in God has reached a new low in the U.S., with only 81 percent saying they believe, according to a new Gallup poll.  The survey, released on Friday, asked 1,007 American adults in May if they believe in God, with 81 percent saying they do, a 6 percent decrease from the 87 percent who said yes in 2017, the last time the poll was conducted.  About 17 percent told Gallup they did not believe, while the remaining 2 percent said they were unsure.   Believe in God has been dropping since 1967, where faith was at an all-time high at 98 percent for more than a decade, with the previous low recorded in 2014 at 86 percent.  'Fewer Americans today than five years ago believe in God, and the percentage is down even more from the 1950s and 1960s when almost all Americans did,' Gallup said in a statement. Still', the vast majority of Americans believe in God, whether that means they believe a higher power hears prayers and can intervene or not.' A Gallup poll of 1,007 American adults...
    Inflation has emerged as a top concern among Americans heading into the midterm elections, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday found. The survey examined a range of issues facing the country and found that inflation topped the list, as 91 percent are concerned. That reflects a three-point jump from the 87 percent who said the same last month. This also coincides with the news of inflation soaring to 8.6 percent — a 41-year high, as Breitbart News detailed: Inflation hit a four-decade high of 8.557 percent in March and moved down to 8.3 percent in April. Economists had expected inflation to tick down to 8.2 percent in May. This is the twelfth straight month of inflation above 5 percent. Excluding food and energy, prices were up six percent compared with a year ago, more than the 5.9 percent anticipated. On the month, prices rose 0.6 percent, matching last month’s gain and beating the expectation for a slowdown to 0.5 percent. Among the 91 percent who said they are concerned about inflation, 69 percent are “very” concerned. There seems to be...
    Almost six in ten American manufacturers believe ongoing inflation will lead to a recession in the United States, a new survey from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) finds. Inflation under President Joe Biden soared to 8.6 percent last month — the highest in 41 years — and American manufacturers are expressing a gloomy outlook over the next year for the United States economy. In the latest NAM survey, more than 59 percent of American manufacturers said they believe inflation is likely to spur a recession in the United States. About 52 percent said they do not believe the Federal Reserve will be able to avert a recession. Likewise, American manufacturers expect raw material costs to rise 6.9 percent and prices for their products to go up 5.9 percent over the next year. About 75 percent said inflation was worse today than it was six months ago and more than 53 percent suggested the higher prices are making it harder for them to remain competitive and profitable. On United States–China free trade, more than 88 percent of American manufacturers said...
    Katie Britt led Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) by double digits in the race for the Republican nomination for Senate ahead of a June 21 runoff, according to a survey conducted by a GOP pollster not affiliated with either campaign. Britt, the former chief of staff to retiring Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), was outpacing Brooks 48% to 36%, with 7% undecided, in a poll from JMC Analytics and Polling. The survey was taken June 6 – 9, just prior to former President Donald Trump endorsing Britt. Even before the former president announced he was backing Britt, the data from the JMC poll was signaling that Brooks’s chances of upsetting her in the runoff were slim. “In short, the Senate runoff race has ‘upset potential’ if former President Trump were to re-endorse … Congressman Brooks,” John Couvillon, the pollster, wrote in his analysis of the survey. WARREN BACKS NADLER IN HEATED PRIMARY RACE WITH CAROLYN MALONEY Trump endorsed Brooks in June of last year but yanked his seal of approval this past March as the congressman’s prospects dimmed ahead of Alabama’s May...
    A plurality of Americans say economic issues will be the top set of problems on their minds when they cast their votes in the upcoming midterm elections, a Politico/Morning Consult poll released this week found. “Now, thinking about your vote, what would you say is the top set of issues on your mind when you cast your vote for federal offices such as U.S. Senate or Congress?” the survey asked. A plurality, 42 percent, said economic issues — including taxes, wages, jobs, unemployment, and spending — top the list. No other issue came close, as security issues — terrorism, foreign policy, and border security — came in a distant second with 12 percent.  Women’s issues, including birth control, abortion, and “equal pay,” came closely behind with ten percent identifying it as a top issue. Other topics, such as seniors’ issues, health care, education, and energy, garnered single-digit support.  The survey also found that nearly three-quarters, 73 percent, are at least somewhat enthusiastic to vote in the midterms, and of those, 29 percent are “extremely” enthusiastic.  The survey was taken June...
