Crunching the July 2011 Rasmussen trust numbers.
I stopped doing this in the middle of 2010, once it became clear that the real question of 2010 was how many hits to the head with the snake the Democrats were going to take before it was all over. As the answer was “a lot,” I feel that this was a wise prioritization of my time. But it’s a new cycle, so let’s look | Read More »
Gallup: Big Media’s underwater trust numbers.
Add me to the list (Ed Morrissey and Andrew Malcolm) of people unsurprised at the Gallup report that trust in the media is at its lowest in… forever. 57/43 distrust/trust, for those keeping track: and it’s only been in the last few years that the media’s been underwater. It’s interesting to compare the two reactions to it represented in the above links. Ed, who is | Read More »
The August Rasmussen Trust Numbers.
The latest Rasmussen trust numbers are out, after what was an odd formatting thing that made me decide to stop reporting them until things settled down. Short version: Rasmussen has replaced Abortion with Afghanistan in the top ten category; the GOP won all ten, including that perennial heartbreaker Government Ethics; and the numbers nonetheless show a shift away from July’s numbers, mostly because July’s numbers | Read More »
The May Rasmussen trust numbers.
There’s no article up on them yet, but the raw numbers are available here.

The April Rasmussen Trust numbers.
I’ve been trying to do this post for a few days (Rasmussen usually puts these numbers up before it does a formal article). Short version: eight out of ten for the GOP, but the Democrats made up lost territory across the board.

The March Rasmussen Trust Numbers.
Short version: nine out of ten, and the word ‘Pyrrhic’ seems ever-more appropriate when discussing the Democrats’ health care monstrosity.

The February Rasmussen Trust Numbers.
I missed this when it came out last week, not that anybody was waiting for this with bated breath. Short version: eight for ten, and the Democrats made up a good bit of lost ground more or less across the board.

The January Rasmussen Trust Numbers.
These I still see the point of putting up. It’s not like the USSC is about to rule to strike down restrictions… OK, that joke is simply not going to work this early in the (snowed-in) day. Short version: nine of ten, the Democrats managed to make up some of their deficit in the economy category (hey, that joke worked!), and I conclude that Government | Read More »
The December Rasmussen Public Trust Numbers.

The November Rasmussen Public Trust Numbers.
I had actually put this together on Sunday, but: well, new baby. Rasmussen’s new trust numbers are out. The short version is: eight for ten for the GOP, and the Democrats’ free-fall from last month have been mostly reset back to September’s numbers… Nov-09 Oct-09 Issue Dem GOP Diff Dem GOP Diff Shift Health Care 42% 44% (2) 40% 46% (6) 4 Education 41% 39% | Read More »
The October Rasmussen Trust numbers. (Ten for ten)
Rasmussen hasn’t written the article yet – but they put the new numbers on their BY THE NUMBERS page. And it’s not pretty for Democrats: October 2009 September 2009 Issue Dem GOP Diff Dem GOP Diff Shift Health Care 40% 46% (6) 44% 44% – (6) Education 38% 43% (5) 45% 40% 5 (10) Social Security 37% 45% (8) 43% 41% 2 (10) Abortion 35% | Read More »
