Republican Odds For Taking Over The Senate Drop 10 Points In Two Weeks

Watching the polls over the past six months, I can’t help but to wonder whether presidential terms should be limited to one six-year term. Frankly, in the internet age, I don’t think voters have the patience or an attention span long enough to carry through two four-year terms. We’ve re-elected all but three presidents in [...]

Sam Wang of Princeton isn’t following the conventional wisdom. Linda Killian at The Daily Beast reports: Wang says he thinks the Democrats have a 70 percent chance of holding control of the Senate. As of Monday afternoon, Nate Silver thinks the Republicans have a 58 percent chance of winning, and The Upshot gives Republicans a 52 [...]

Poll after poll shows how much people hate the Republican Party, but when they go to the polls, voters still pull their levers. Poll after poll shows President Obama is unpopular and the Democratic Party is a little more unpopular. Neither, though, can touch the GOP, whose congressional contingent has a whopping 72 percent disapproval [...]

Congressional Approval At 14%

It’s one of the lowest measurements ever for congressional ratings before a midterm election by Gallup. Most observers believe the Republicans are in little jeopardy of losing control of the House this year, so more of the focus has been on the states with Senate races. Given the idiosyncratic nature of the particular senators and [...]

34% Say Remove God From Pledge

The American Humanist Association says 34% of Americans don’t want God in the Pledge of Allegiance, and 66% want it to stay. Respondents were told that the words “under God” were added by the U.S. government. “There’s a lot more we could have said,” said Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association. “We [...]

Apparently, our Liberaland community was not surveyed. In a report released Tuesday, the Pew Research Center found that most people who regularly use social media sites were actually less likely to share their opinions, even offline. The findings run counter to how many people view social media. But a survey that asked some 1,800 adults [...]

If you’re a Republican, you’re probably over-confident in your party’s chances in the forthcoming midterms. Of course you are. The common wisdom online and on cable news is that the Democrats are headed toward another 2010-style shellacking due to President Obama’s responsibility for everything that’s wrong in the world, not to mention the (non)reality that [...]

Alaskans Cold To Palin

The results of a Public Policy Polling survey show Sarah Palin’s decreasing popularity in Alaska. Just 36 percent said they have a favorable view of Palin and 55 percent do not, a poll released Tuesday from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling showed. Only 20 percent of Alaska voters would like to see the 2008 GOP [...]

9 Out Of 10 Disapprove

While 6 out of 10 disapprove of how President Obama is doing his job, 9 out of 10 disapprove of Congress according to an Associated Press-GfK poll. More than half of Americans, 54 percent, disapprove of both. Among this group, 94 percent say the nation is heading in the wrong direction. About 7 in 10 say someone [...]

Almost 70% of Americans believe children from Central America shouldn’t be forced back. According to a poll released Tuesday by the Public Religion Research Institute, 69 percent of those surveyed believe U.S. authorities should treat the children as refugees and allow them to stay in the country if it is determined it is not safe [...]
