    Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) is maintaining his lead over Republican challenger Joe O’Dea in a fresh poll as he looks to survive a building red electoral wave ahead of the midterm elections. The Emerson College poll showed Bennet leading O’Dea, a construction company owner, 49% to 42%, with just 5% undecided. Even better for the incumbent Democrat, his lead over O’Dea jumps to 51% to 43% when undecided voters are pushed to pick from the two candidates. The results are not necessarily surprising: Colorado has evolved into a blue state since 2004, the last time Republicans won a presidential election there. “Men are evenly split between Bennet and O’Dea with 45% apiece. However, women voters drive Bennet’s lead, they break for the Senator over O’Dea 53% to 39%,” Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, said in a statement, explaining the results of the survey. REPUBLICANS ON A ROLL Emerson College polled 1,000 “very likely” voters Wednesday through Saturday. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.02 percentage points. Republican insiders are high on O’Dea. He has staked...
    With just over a week until New Yorkers choose their next governor, incumbent Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul is maintaining her lead over Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin, new polling shows. Hochul garnered 50 percent support to Zeldin’s 44 percent in an Emerson College poll released Friday, Oct. 28. Earlier Report: New Poll Reveals Who NYers Favor In Governor's Race Based On Inflation, Crime, Abortion Four percent of respondents were undecided, while 2 percent said they plan to vote for someone else, pollsters said. Zeldin, who represents the state’s 1st Congressional District covering eastern Long Island and has the backing of former President Donald Trump, has seen his support grow nine percentage points since the last Emerson College poll in September 2022. “In September, Hochul was winning independent voters 47 percent to 35 percent,” said Spencer Kimball, Executive Director of Emerson College Polling. “Over a month later, a 52 percent majority of independent voters now support Zeldin, and 41 percent support Hochul.” The most recent Emerson College poll was taken between Oct. 20 and 24, before the candidates faced off in their only...
    by Justine Brooke Murray   Republican J.D. Vance’s lead over Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan grew up to 4 points in Ohio’s Senate race 53 days out from Election Day, according to a new survey from Emerson College Polling and The Hill released Friday, in a bad sign for Democrats’ hopes of taking the Senate. Vance held a 44% to 40% lead in polling conducted by Emerson College and The Hill in Ohio’s race for U.S. Senate. He previously led Ryan by three points, 45% to 42%, according to Emerson College’s polling in August. Vance is now leading Ryan by 2.3 points in average polling conducted by RealClearPolitics. Given that Ohio leans red, Republican candidates were always expected to have a slight advantage, according to The Hill. The Cook Political Report rates the senatorial race as “lean Republican.” “Independent voters favor J.D. Vance by a two-point margin, 51% of which name the economy as their most important issue,” Spencer Kimball, Executive Director of Emerson College Polling, said in the report. “Additionally, a stark gender divide exists on the Senate ballot, reflective of other Senate polling this cycle....
    Less than half of Texas Latino voters have a positive view of the Democrats in their state, according to a recently released poll from Emerson College. This could be a bad sign for Democrats, who depend highly on their vote in midterm elections. The poll found that only 49 percent of Latino voters in Texas surveyed said that they have a very or somewhat positive view of the Democrat Party. While only 25 percent said the same thing about the Republican Party, this could still be a bad sign for the Democrats. The poll was conducted as a part of Emerson College’s new nationwide initiative on Latinos to gather information about their attitudes and beliefs. The number of Hispanic eligible voters continues to rise in the United States. Republican Monica De La Cruz, running in the next general election for the 15th House congressional district, talks in her office in Alamo, Texas, Thursday, July 8, 2021. In Republicans’ bid to retake control of Congress, this traditionally Democratic stretch of south Texas has quietly become a top battleground. After making unexpected gains last November, the...
    Rep. Ted Budd has bounced back into the lead in the race for the Republican nomination for Senate in North Carolina, according to a fresh poll. Budd, endorsed by former President Donald Trump, topped former Gov. Pat McCrory 38% to 22%, with 9% supporting former Rep. Mark Walker and a whopping 23% undecided, per an Emerson College survey sponsored by The Hill. Budd had struggled lately, and some polls had shown McCrory with an advantage. This data set suggests the congressman has regained his footing in a GOP primary that serves as a key test of Trump’s influence inside the GOP. “Budd and McCrory are evenly split with 31% apiece among suburban voters,” Emerson College Polling executive director Spencer Kimball said in a statement. “However, rural voters break for Budd 42% to McCrory’s 11%.” DAVID MCCORMICK TOPS MEHMET OZ IN PENNSYLVANIA SENATE RACE: POLL Indeed, the Emerson College poll reveals splits among key voter demographics that have increasingly characterized American politics in the Trump era. For instance, President Joe Biden’s overall approval rating in North Carolina in this survey was...
    Boston's Emerson College has instructed students living in halls of residence on campus to stay in their rooms apart from eating, collecting mail or to get tested for covid-19. The new rules come into force on January 3rd and apply to all students even if they have been fully vaccinated including receiving their booster shots.  The college hopes that the 'stay in room directive' will help curb the spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus.   'The campus will operate in a 'stay in room directive' through January 18.

    Emerson College in Boston has issued a "stay in room directive" for students living in residential halls on-campus from Jan. 3-17 due to the new omicron variant of the coronavirus. According to the Emerson College website, under the "stay in room directive" issued by the university, students living on-campus are asked to only leave their room in limited situations. "The campus will operate in a ‘stay in room directive’ through January 18. This means students are asked to only leave their residence halls or place of residence for testing, meals, medical appointments, necessary employment, or to get mail.  Students should avoid any large gatherings and not leave campus or their residence except for those situations listed above," the announcement states.

    A Boston-based professor, who once wrote that white and black women cannot have “true friendships,” was promoted to a leadership position at her liberal arts college, according to a report from The Federalist. Professor Kim McLarin was promoted from her position as a creative writing professor at Emerson College to the interim dean of graduate and professional studies, according to a press release from the school’s interim president William Gilligan. The announcement was made on Nov. 1 that McLarin would begin her graduate dean position in Jan. 2022. The Federalist highlighted a handful of McLarin’s writings, including a 2019 op-ed for the Washington Post titled, “Can black women and white women be friends?” “Generally speaking, it’s not that I dislike white women. Generally speaking, it’s that I do not trust them. Generally speaking, most black women don’t,” McLarin wrote. The professor went on to admit that such observances were “highly unscientific” and based on a survey she conducted of her friends and friends of friends. “Put simply, white women have power they will not share and to which they mostly...
              moreby Robert Schmad   Emerson College is appointing Kim McLarin, an associate professor of creative writing, to serve as the institution’s interim Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies. McLarin has written a number of essays and opinion pieces in which she denigrates White people, particularly White women. In an article she wrote for the Washington Post, McLarin expressed doubt as to whether Black women and White women could be “true friends”. A New York Times piece she authored details her experience briefly dating a White man in which she ultimately decides to end the relationship because of the man’s race. She also wrote an essay for The Morning News in which she, among other things, argues that Morgan Freeman films are part of an effort by “White America” to “remain at the center of black consciousness.” McLarin has written seven novels about feminism, race and family, alongside other topics. As a girl she attended highschool at the Philip Exeter Academy, one of the most prestigious prep schools in the nation. McLarin then went on to attend Duke University. Prior to being promoted to an interim dean, she headed Emerson...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Former President Donald Trump is leading President Joe Biden in a potential election rematch, according to a new poll from Emerson College. The survey asked voters who they’d support if the 2024 presidential election were held today. Biden won the popular vote over Trump 51%-47% in 2020, but the poll conducted exactly one year after Election Day found Trump ahead 45% to 43%, which is within the margin of error. Eleven percent of voters surveyed said they would choose someone else. “With over a tenth of voters voicing support for someone else in another Trump-Biden match-up, 2024 could perhaps witness a third party candidate reaching the required 15% support to get on the debate stage,” Emerson College polling director Spencer Kimball said.

                      by Harold Hutchison  Turning Point USA’s chapter at Emerson College has been suspended pending an investigation into alleged violations of the college’s Code of Community Standards. “Effective immediately your organization cannot hold events on campus, this includes but is not limited to hosting programs, meetings and/or tabling,” an Oct. 1 letter signed by Julie Rothhaar-Sanders, the college’s director of Community Standards said. The letter accused the group of being involved in “Bias Related Behavior” and “Invasion of Privacy.” The TPUSA chapter denied the charges, claiming in an Oct. 1 Twitter post featuring a video by the chapter’s vice president that they were criticizing the Chinese government when they had stickers saying, “China Kinda Sus.” The chapter vice president described herself as a Singaporean of Chinese descent.

                        A new Nexstar/Emerson College poll conducted at the beginning of October has GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin one point behind Democrat Terry McAuliffe, 48 percent to 49 percent. A Fox News poll conducted at the end of September found 48 percent support for McAuliffe and 44 percent support for Youngkin. “The new poll by Emerson demonstrates clearly that all the momentum is on Glenn Youngkin’s side and he is poised to win this race in Virginia on November 2,” said John Fredricks, The Virginia Star’s publisher and radio talk show host. Fredericks served as the 2016 and 2019 Trump Virginia chairman. Although Youngkin has pivoted to appeal to moderates, he hasn’t alienated the Trump base, leaving Youngkin’s coalition intact. Republicans are testing post-Trump messaging in the Virginia races to prepare to target vulnerable House of Representatives Democrats in 2022. CNalysis Director Chaz Nuttycombe said that the Emerson poll is an outlier, and he still rates the race Lean Democratic — if Youngkin does win, it will be by a...

    UXBRIDGE (CBS) — Family and friends linked up in the rain on Monday at a special golf tournament to honor 19-year-old Daniel Hollis. The Emerson College student died from a severe brain injury in September 2019 after his family said he was attacked while leaving a party in Allston. “It’s a family of 144 people here today,” Daniel’s mom Jennifer Hollis said.

The student fell and hit his head on the concrete.  He suffered severe brain damage and died four days later at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.    London has been sentenced to 65 months in prison.

    A Marine Corps reservist has been charged with murder in the death of an Emerson College student who succumbed to brain damage sustained during a fight in Boston last year, military officials said. Lance Cpl. Samuel Boris London is also facing military charges of manslaughter, assault and battery and wrongful use of a controlled substance in the October 2019 death of Daniel Hollis, a 19-year-old sophomore who died at a hospital four days after the beating, the Boston Globe reported. Police found a bloodied Hollis unconscious with severe head trauma in the city’s Allston section on Sept. 28, 2019. London, who was visiting Boston while on pre-deployment leave, was allegedly linked to the altercation, but a Massachusetts grand jury in February declined to issue indictments in the case, the newspaper reported. Hollis, a marketing communications major set to graduate in 2022, died from blunt force head injuries, a coroner found. Relatives said they believe Hollis struck his head on cement during a confrontation between he and his friend and another group of “college-aged” young men outside of a pal’s apartment....

    Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) leads Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) in the heated Montana Senate race, according to a poll released Wednesday. An Emerson College survey found Daines (pictured) leads Bullock by nine points or 52 to 43 percent. Five percent of voters remain undecided. Daines has expanded his lead since the last Emerson Montana poll; Daines led by six points when Emerson released the poll in August. Spencer Kimball, the director of Emerson College polling, said, “Montana looks about the same as it did at this time in the 2016 race, we will be looking to see if there is a late break in the state which last time went for Trump giving him a 20 point win.” The Emerson College poll shows more support for Daines compared to a Data for Progress survey released on Wednesday. The Data for Progress poll had Bullock leading Daines by one point over Daines. A Siena College/New York Times poll released in September had Daines leading Bullock by one point. An AARP survey released in September also had Daines leading Bullock by three...
    BOSTON (CBS) – TikTok, the Chinese video sharing app has more than 100 million users in the US For many, it is addicting. “It grabs your attention makes you stay there and want to watch it and keep coming back,” said Cayleigh Pine, an Emerson student. Students at Emerson College are worried about restrictions put on the app on Friday by the Trump Administration. “I’m happy that I have it. I knew there was a possibility a few weeks ago, so I’m not super surprised. I figured something like this would happen, but I am upset,” said Alyssa Frey, another Emerson student. Starting September 20, Chinese owned TikTok and WeChat will no longer be available for download from app stores. The Commerce Department, citing national security and privacy, says, “Today’s actions prove once again that President Trump will do everything in his power to guarantee our national security and protect Americans from the threats of the Chinese Communist Party.” TikTok will still work for those who already have it until early November.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Towering over the corner of Stuart and Tremont is the W Hotel. By the entrance, luggage carts sit empty and the valet is quiet. But stand outside long enough and you’ll notice college students, donning backpacks and buzzing in and out of its doors. The hotel is housing nearly 200 Emerson College students for the fall semester. “My freshman year at Emerson I was in an eight-person suite. It was much different than having my own single in the hotel,” said Emerson senior Hanna El-Mohandess. “We were all sharing one bathroom.” El-Mohandess is a resident assistant, and by many standards, her housing experience is the definition of luxury. Floor to ceiling windows give way to world-class views, her king-sized bed is nestled up against elaborate trim molding, and her bathroom shower is set in lavish stone. She even has an espresso machine. The accommodations are a byproduct of the pandemic. As Emerson efforts a plan to “de-densify” its campus, hotels have found new ways to bring back business. Emerson is one of several Boston...
    An Emerson College Poll conducted the last two days of August found that President Trump has narrowed the gap with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to a near-tie, with Biden garnering 49% of respondents’ votes and Trump getting 47%. That margin has closed since the July national poll, when Biden led 50% to 46%. Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling, stated that “the Republican convention gave Trump his most positive week of news coverage which likely attributes to his bounce in this month’s poll and increasing job approval.” Trump has been steadily gaining ground for weeks; the Hill-HarrisX poll surveying respondents between August 2-5 found Biden garnering 47% of the national vote versus 43% for Trump, a lead of four percentage points. The previous Hill-HarrisX poll, conducted between July 17-20, found Biden farther ahead with a seven-point lead, with 45% of the vote while Trump got 38%. At the beginning of June in the Hill-Harris poll, Biden led Trump by 10 points; 47% of respondents chose Biden while 37% chose Trump. At the time, Terrance Woodbury, Democratic pollster and founding partner...

TheWrap reported on Davis' suspension from the progressive media outlet after Twitter users came forward with claims against him when a tweet highlighting Rep.

    BOSTON (CBS) – “I’m often asked if this is the moment,” Emerson College President Lee Pelton said during a Zoom interview from his home. “And what I’ve come to understand is, no this is not the moment, this is a movement.” “It’s not the kind of civil rights movement we saw in the 1960s with distinguished leaders, adult leaders, but this is a movement that’s being fueled by young people,” he said. “They bring to this issue a fierce urgency and idealism. Young people are always prospective, looking forward, and they want it done now.” Emerson College President Lee Felton. (WBZ-TV) Pelton also talked about how young people are using the power of social media to not only have their voices heard but also to organize marches and bring people together. Pelton said the racial injustices in this country are not something that are easily fixed and that moving the needle will take a lot of work. “We have all these gaps,” he said, talking about the lack of opportunities in communities of color. “We have a wealth gap in...
