New Poll: Women Really Don’t Like Trump
It’s no surprise that women don’t like Trump. The past few weeks have shown his campaign’s disregard for women with its response to employed thug Lewandowski’s behavior, and recently, Trump’s own statements on punishing women who have abortions. According to a new Gallup poll released Friday: …Trump’s image among U.S. women tilts strongly negative, with 70% of women holding an unfavorable opinion and 23% a favorable opinion of | Read More »

Gallup exposes pro-abort GOP politicians for what they are
Over the past years we social conservatives have heard time and again about abortion being a loser at the polls. Just a few weeks ago a caucus of Quisling women Republicans sold out babies who will be killed by late term abortion. They did this by posturing as some kind of latter-day Machiavellis whose intimate knowledge of the uterus would save the GOP from folly. | Read More »
Barack Obama cannot, in any way, be said to have white working class support.
Gallup is being a bit, ah, antiseptic on this story: “President Barack Obama’s job approval rating among white non-college graduates is at 27% so far in 2014, 14 percentage points lower than among white college graduates. This is the largest yearly gap between these two groups since Obama took office.” I say ‘antiseptic’ because it should be spelled out more that Obama’s popularity with college educated | Read More »
American Voters Apparently Too Stupid to Understand that Obamacare is Working
As the second enrollment period for Obamacare opens, Americans continue to display their reticent stupidity (HT Jonathan Gruber) about all the amazing things that Obamacare has brought into their lives, as Gallup reports that Obamacare’s unfavorability is at an all time high, and favorability is also at an all time low. As Gallup graphically demonstrates, the trend lines are incredibly getting even worse, which is | Read More »
Gallup: Rating The Living Presidents, Clinton on Top (no pun intended)
At the time of this writing, there are five Presidents of the United States currently breathing. I assume Jimmy Carter is actually alive and not the victim of a sick Weekend at Bernie’s prank simply to avoid all of the pomp and circumstance surrounding the death of a president. Imagine being one of the unlucky chosen who will have to speak at his memorial, showering the former | Read More »
New Gallup numbers pour cold water all over one of the Democrats’ remaining defenses of ObamaCare

A quick look at the trends will show you that percentage is almost the same as what it was when President Obama took office in January 2009, and nearly identical to the rate of uninsured in March 2010, when the Democrats jammed | Read More »
Gallup: most parents don’t want their kids in politics.
I understand this sentiment. PRINCETON, NJ — By a 2-to-1 margin, 64% to 31%, Americans would not like their child to go into politics as a career. The results are the same whether the question is asked about a “child,” a “son,” or a “daughter.” There has been little change in the percentage of Americans who would favor a political career for their son or | Read More »

Swingometer: Gallup Party ID figures predict solid Romney win
We always talk about the independent, swing vote in elections because those tend to be the persuadables. But party ID numbers matter as well, because those partisan voters tend to split better than 90/10 for their party.
It is for that reason that Gallup’s new partisan ID split, one that mimics what Rasmussen has been saying all along, predicts nothing less than doom for the Democrats, and a solid, national win for Mitt Romney this year.

Notice what’s missing from that subtitle? As in, what rather important category? For an election? You know… political affiliation? Yeah, well, there’s a reason for that.
