Obama’s Fade Into History

The President is in serious danger of becoming invisible as the GOP race begins to produce sparks – primarily  because the GOP side is lining up to be a battle between Tea Party Libertarians/Independents and the Establishment GOP. Obama is not only a known quantity, but his inability to rethink his positions and explore outside […]

Gallup Maintains GOP Tsunami, Rasmussen Comes Back To Reality

Last week was interesting because, just as Rasmussen was detecting a bizarre shift to the Democrats in his ‘likely voter’ generic congressional ballot question (down to a +3% for the GOP), Gallup finally released its ‘likely voter‘ generic poll (two actually) showing a +13-18% GOP tsunami. It was doubly interesting since Rasmussen had been showing […]

Gallup Stunner Coming!?!?

OK, this election year could be more than a once-in-a-lifetime kind of year. It could be a once-in-forever, if what Jay Cost is reporting about Gallup’s ‘likely voter‘ version of its congressional generic question is accurate: Our latest measure for the week of Sept. 20-26 shows Republicans with a 20-percentage-point lead over Democrats in terms […]

It’s Shaping Up Like 1994

Gallup has some stunning polls out today, which underline once again why 2010 is going to be as bad or worse than 1994 for the Democrat Party. When the nation says it aligns with the GOP on the role of government, you know the ‘Big Government Party” Dems are in serious trouble (click to enlarge): […]

77% Disapprove Of Democrat Congress

This is why you don’t want your political party to alienate the center of the country (click to enlarge): I would say it makes complete sense that the small liberal/progressive minority – 18% – are the only ones happy with DC and the Dems right now. Everyone else is fed up with them. And this […]

Gallup’s Generic Stunner – A November For The History Books

Never has Gallup’s congressional generic poll shown such a large lead for the GOP: Republicans lead by 51% to 41% among registered voters in Gallup weekly tracking of 2010 congressional voting preferences. The 10-percentage-point lead is the GOP’s largest so far this year and is its largest in Gallup’s history of tracking the midterm generic […]

How Low Can “O” Go?

I have been expecting for days now for President Obama’s drop in Gallup’s approval to slow or stop, but I have been surprised by the fact his free-fall continues.  Today’s Gallup numbers are stunning, with President Obama down -9% (click to zoom): Even more important is the fact this is a poll of Adults! What […]

Dem’s Poll Crash Continues

Published by under 2010 Elections,Obamacare

We are witnessing history in the making folks. We are watching how a major political party becomes extinct by totally disconnecting from We The People and deciding the party will control the nation regardless of what the voters want. As noted in my previous posts, the country wants to throw Congress out – and I […]

Oh Democrat Congress, How Do We Hate Thee …

Let Gallup count the ways. President Obama and his liberal cohorts in Congress have made history this year, and I am not talking about that wreck called Obamacare. The liberals in DC have made this Congress the most despised in modern times: A record-low percentage of U.S. voters — 28% — say most members of […]

About Those Polls & Turnout Models

I really want to applaud Gallup for providing two turnout model projections in their polls. It allows mathematically astute and experienced person to look inside the data and determine the state of the race. Today’s tracking poll is a great example of how the turnout models can really screw up the results: What the data […]
