Beware Networks Skipping Their Own Polls

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

No one expects these networks to report all of their polling results. But consumers should beware that these "facts first" networks have a tendency to pass over the results they don't like and heavily emphasize the ones they do. Whether they are reporting on polls or policies or scandals or gaffes, everything the networks report sounds like dark clouds and stormy seas for Trump and the GOP. Disaster is always around the corner. The wishful thinking is palpable and incessant.

New Polls Undermine Forecast Of Blue Wave In Midterms

Julie Kelly, The Federalist

Seven months is still a long way off and anything can happen, especially when the head of one’s party is impulsive and erratic. If Trump can hold it together, the Robert Mueller probe continues to lose support among Americans, the economy chugs along, and we look tough abroad, Republicans can keep control of the House until the next presidential election. At least for now, it appears that the hundreds of political influencers who bet Trump would “ruin” the GOP and cause massive losses this November were dead flat wrong.

Showdown in November: Fearsome Blue Wave or Flaccid Democrat Failure?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

November is more than just a political scuffle. It’s existential. When you have Democrat tech titans squealing over the thought of a “civil war” on Republicans and a leftist cultural campaign designed to drive half of the population out of the public sphere, you know it’s important. We either win in November or the most dire hypotheticals of our country being split apart or even in conflict might well migrate from the “Fiction” stacks to the “Non-Fiction” section.

New Poll: Conservatives Expect Tax Cut to Aid GOP Candidates

More than 93% of those responding to a recent FedUp PAC poll say that the across-the-board tax cut will help Republicans in next year’s elections, while less than 4% disagree. This contrasts strongly with a recent poll from CBS News.

Despicable Anti-Gillespie Ad Backfires After NYC Truck Attack

After an Uzbek Muslim, who apparently entered the United States on a so-called “diversity visa,” ran over and killed at least eight innocent New Yorkers the Latino Victory Fund pulled their sickening ad that featured an Ed Gillespie supporter attempting to run down minority children with a pick-up truck.

Gillespie Gets Pence and CHQ Nod in VA Governor Race

The MAGA agenda is on the line in the Virginia Governor's race, and it is time for conservatives to own the vote. We urge you to talk to your friends, neighbors, family, church members and others in your social circle and ask them to vote for Ed Gillespie for Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Stand with Trump on Climate Agreement Withdrawal

Conservatives stand firmly behind President Trump’s decision to withdraw from Obama’s Paris Climate Agreement, according to a new poll by FedUp PAC.

Trump Surges in Polls During First Foreign Trip

Ken Klukowski, Breitbart

While polls taken before his multinational tour showed the president’s polls numbers dropping several points in the wake of news developments cast in a negative light by many establishment media outlets, Rasmussen may be the first daily tracker to reflect the positive news emerging from Trump’s meetings and summits, in which the American president looks commanding, decisive, gracious, and very much belonging on the world stage alongside other leaders, many of whom are praising him and looking for U.S. support.

The Reason For President Trump’s Approval Problem

There are many issues plumbed in these polls, but what comes through loud and clear is that, by hitching his popularity to Paul Ryan and Ryancare, President Trump has suffered a devastating drop in approval among the staunchest of his core constituents.

Why the Polls Failed

Milton Rosenberg, The American Spectator

It would advance political journalism if some of its practitioners were able to acquire a more detailed understanding of the art (science it never was and can never be) of public opinion polling. If they had actually achieved some working sophistication, adepts like Chris Matthews would not so readily turn from awarding pleasure credits (“I felt this thrill going up my leg” while contemplating Obama) to exhorting vigilante justice as he urged, late on election night, that “we should tar and feather all of the pollsters.”

As Polls Tighten, There’s Panic in the Clinton Camp

Michael Barone, National Review

Polls still show Clinton ahead — but by margins similar to the British polls showing Brexit losing and smaller than those in 2015 polls showing Conservatives wouldn’t win a majority in Parliament. Those elections came out the other way. So maybe we’re in my pretend world. If so, a Clinton loss would validate my old rule that nothing is free in politics; there is just some question about when you pay the price.
