    Likely voters favor Republicans over Democrats by 13 points on a generic congressional ballot, up ten points in one week, a Rasmussen poll revealed Tuesday. If the 2022 midterm elections were held today, 51 percent of likely voters would support the Republican candidate while 38 percent would vote for the Democrat candidate. Tuesday’s numbers are a massive increase for Republicans’ hopes of winning a historic amount of seats in the 2022 midterms.

    Most voters view President Biden as a “weak” commander in chief, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday found. The survey asked, “Compared to most recent presidents, is President Biden a stronger commander in chief for the military or a weaker one? Or is his performance as commander in chief about the same?” Overall, a majority, 54 percent, said Biden is a “weaker” leader, followed by 24 percent who said he is stronger and 15 percent who said “about the same.” Biden, 2-1, seen as weakest of recent presidents https://t.co/o3jZWjvhE7 — Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) November 1, 2021 In comparison, “in June 2018, 40% of voters, and a majority of those with military experience, said President Donald Trump was a stronger commander-in-chief for the military than most recent presidents,” according to Rasmussen Reports.

    Former President Donald Trump is touting the political acumen of podcaster Joe Rogan and a poll from notorious Republican-leaning pollster Rasmussen Reports to suggest he would earn a massive victory over President Joe Biden, or Vice President Kamala Harris were she to be the nominee in 2024. On Monday, Trump issued one of his non-Twitter statements that read “ICYMI: ‘Joe Rogan predicts Trump will run in 2024 and is ‘probably gonna win’ against Biden, Harris would also lose’.” The statement contained a link to an article about a recent Rogan podcast in which he told Amanda Knox that Trump will “100 percent” run again and is “probably gonna win,” and added that the VP “would lose just as badly.” And in another statement, Trump wrote “ICYMI: ‘2024: Trump over Biden by 10 points, Harris by 13’.” The statement links to an article that cites the Rasmussen poll showing a 51%-41% Trump victory over Biden and a 52%-39% victory over VP Harris. But Rasmussen is a notorious outlier that, as Mediaite’s Rudy Takala explains, “samples a greater number of Republicans...
    Democrats believe Trump supporters are a more serious threat to America than the Taliban, China or Russia, according to a new poll by Scott Rasmussen.

    He said that the crisis at the border, and a loss in economic confidence added to the anxiety over the Afghanistan debacle. "The last month has been pretty horrible for the Biden administration and it's beginning to show up in these numbers," added Rasmussen.

    (CNN)"Stunning Poll Reveals Trump Would Win Election Held Today"That's the headline of an article published Wednesday in the National Pulse, a pro-Trump "news" site. It refers to a Rasmussen Research poll that, among other things, asked people who they would vote for today between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Trump took 43% to Biden's 37%.The conclusion, at least according to the National Pulse, is simple: Voters are having buyer's remorse on Biden -- and wish they had given Trump a second term.It is, of course, not that simple. Let's start with the pollster: Rasmussen Research.Read MoreCNN doesn't report results from Rasmussen because they conduct automated polls incorporating interactive voice response (IVR) that don't meet our polling standards. (IVR just means an automated voice conducts the poll rather than a human being.)The main issue with IVR polling is who is being called, who responds and whether the overall sample is actually representative of the district, state or country being polled.As the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) notes of the issues with IVR polling:"First, there are specific state and federal...
    U.S. voters’ performance rating of Congress is in the dumps, according to a poll released by Rasmussen on Friday. When asked “how do you rate the way that Congress is doing its job?” only 17 percent of voters said “good” or “excellent.” More than half — 54 percent — said Congress is doing a poor job. “Those numbers are worse than in April, when 21 percent gave Congress excellent or good ratings. Historically, positive ratings for Congress have only reached 25 percent once (in February 2017) in regular surveying by Rasmussen Reports since 2007,” according to the poll. As far as problem solving goes, just 29 percent of voters said Congress is likely to seriously address the most pressing issues facing the nation. Sixty-eight percent said it is unlikely lawmakers will get their act together. Democrat voters tended to believe in Democrat-dominated Congress more than Republicans, but unaffiliated voters were not at all impressed, according to the poll. “Twenty-seven percent of Democrats rate the way Congress is doing its job as good or excellent, compared to just 12 percent of Republicans...
    Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights July 4, 2001 (Alex Wong, Getty Images) A new finds that only about 1 in 3 Americans believe the Founding Fathers would consider the nation they founded to be a success on this Fourth of July weekend, 245 year later. In fact, 41% believe the Founders would consider the nation a failure. In the annual Fourth of July poll from Rasmussen, asked whether the Founding Fathers would consider the United States as it is today to be a success or failure, only 34% of adults answered that it would be considered a success by the likes of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson. Exact Question polled: If the Founding Fathers came back today, would they consider the United States a success or a failure? A year ago, during President Donald Trump‘s last year in office and as a pandemic was underway, the result was 6 points higher, at 40% who said the Founders would consider the nation a success. This year, the forty find failure, as 41% of...
    A majority of voters do not agree with Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) statement equating the Unites States and Israel with terrorist organizations like Hamas and the Taliban, a Rasmussen poll released Wednesday found. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” wrote Omar in a tweet. “I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice.” According to the poll, 61 percent of voters reject Omar’s “anti-American rhetoric,” and half support censuring her. Only 24 percent of voters agree with Omar’s comparison and 15 percent are not sure. Eighty percent of Republicans, 41 percent of Democrats, and 57 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party disagree with the comparison as well. Since her statement last week, 12 Jewish Democrats in the House have condemned her remarks, and a coalition of more than 200 rabbis sent a letter, first obtained by Fox News, to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) criticizing her for not removing Omar (MN) from her from the Foreign Affairs Committee. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) promised during...
    President Joe Biden’s approval rating is at 49 percent, according to the latest Rasmussen poll released Friday. Biden’s approval rating has hovered around 50 percent in June, according to Rasmussen’s tracking poll, down from a high of 55 percent in late May. Other June polls showed Biden slightly higher, including a Politico/Morning Consult poll showing Biden at 52 percent and a Reuters/Ipsos poll showing his approval rating at 55 percent.

Biden is now in Europe for his first international trip as president at the G-7 summit before a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    Liberal media viewers are misinformed about crime in the U.S., a new survey found. Fewer than 50 unarmed black suspects were killed by police last year, and more people were killed with knives than with assault weapons. Viewers of MSNBC and CNN are far more likely than Fox News viewers to get those facts wrong. Half of likely U.S. voters who said CNN or MSNBC was their favorite cable news outlet believe more than 100 unarmed African Americans were fatally shot by police in 2020, according to a new Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports survey. Only 22% of Fox News viewers believe police shot more than 100 unarmed black people last year. One survey question asked: "Approximately how many unarmed African Americans were fatally shot by police in 2020? Less than 50, 50 to 100, 500 to 1,000, 1,000 to 5,000, 5,000 to 10,000, or more than 10,000?" Twenty-four percent of CNN viewers and 19% of MSNBC viewers thought cops fatally shot more than 500 unarmed black suspects last year. Only 9% percent of Fox News viewers thought so.

    Andrew Jose, The Western Journal May 7, 2021 0 Comments A new poll found that a majority of Americans eligible to vote do not see President Joe Biden as competent enough to deal with terrorism. According to the Rasmussen poll, released Monday, only 30 percent of likely U.S. voters expressed that they were very confident in Biden’s ability to deal with terrorist threats to the United States. Roughly 16 percent said they were somewhat confident in the president’s ability to deal with such threats.

The results, which had a 95 percent level of confidence and a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 points, were from a survey Rasmussen Reports conducted between April 29 and May 2 among 1,000 likely voters in the country. The five questions asked were: • “How closely have...
    A Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 likely voters shows that a majority — 51 percent — have a negative impression of Vice President Kamala Harris and 43 percent have a “very unfavorable impression” of her. The poll found 46 percent of likely voters have a positive impression of Harris and 28 percent have a very favorable impression of the vice president. Tasnim New Agency reported on the poll, which requires a subscription to access all of the details: A Rasmussen Reports poll released on Monday showed that 41 percent of likely U.S. voters see Harris as “not at all qualified” to take over the responsibilities of the presidency, and 9 precent believe she is “not very qualified.”  The survey on Harris’ readiness for the role of president is especially relevant because Biden is seen by many Americans as unlikely to be physically and mentally able to complete his four-year term. A Rasmussen poll last August showed that 59 percent of voters, including 49 percent of Democrats, didn’t expect Biden to serve his full term if elected in November. Despite being...
                        Coca-Cola officials who criticized Georgia’s new voter integrity law may have ended up hurting their company’s bottom line, according to a new poll from Rasmussen. “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 37 percent of American Adults [say] the company’s stand against the new Georgia law makes them less likely to purchase Coca-Cola products. Twenty-five percent say they are more likely to buy Coke, but 30 percent say the company’s political stance doesn’t make much difference,” Rasmussen Report said. “The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on April 15 and 18, 2021 by Rasmussen Reports.

    A new poll found that a plurality of American voters believe Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis Police Officer charged with the murder of George Floyd, should be found guilty. Rasmussen surveyed 1,000 likely U.S voters from March 30-31 over the phone and online across the country. The poll found that 48% of respondents believe Chauvin should be found guilty in the George Floyd case. On the other hand, 21% of respondents said they disagreed with the assertion that Chauvin should be found guilty, according to Rasmussen Reports.

    Fewer than half of likely voters consider a vaccine passport a “good idea,” a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday found. White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed this week the White House is working with private companies to “make some recommendations” for the development of vaccine passports in the United States. However, less than half of likely voters view this as a “good idea.” Rasmussen asked respondents, “Is requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination to return to pre-pandemic activities a good idea or a bad idea?” Forty-four percent of likely voters said it is a “good idea,” 41 percent said it is a “bad idea,” and 15 percent said they are not sure. Notably, the divide between those who believe it is a good and bad idea is within the survey’s +/- 3 percent margin of error. Democrats are far more likely than Republicans to view vaccine passports as a “good idea,” 57 percent to the GOP’s 33 percent. A plurality of those outside of either major party, 45 percent, view it as a “bad idea.” Fifty-four percent of Republicans and...
    A poll by YouGov shows that 69 percent of political independents are blaming President Joe Biden for the spiraling migration surge at the southern border and that only 35 percent of Biden’s 2020 voters excuse him from blame. The March 23-25 poll of 1,606 adults was conducted for Yahoo! News, and it asked: “Who do you think bears most of the blame for the situation at the border?” Overall, 66 percent of adults give most, some, or a little blame to Biden, while just 19 percent say he serves no blame. Sixteen percent said they were not sure. However, the numbers are worse for Biden among the swing-voting independents who decide elections. Thirty-two percent of swing-voting independents give Biden “most of the blame,” while 16 percent give him “some blame” and 21 percent give him a “little blame.” Just 17 percent of independents say Biden does not deserve any blame. Worse, Biden’s base is divided, even before the bulk of the expected migrants arrive in the spring. Twenty-two percent of Biden’s 2020 voters give him “most of the blame”...
    A majority of swing-voting Americans blame President Joe Biden for the post-Trump border rush, according to a Rasmussen poll of 1,000 likely voters. Fifty-seven percent of non-GOP, non-Democrat respondents, agreed with the statement, “President Biden himself … has caused the [border] crisis with both his rhetoric and his policies,” a Rasmussen release reports. Just 30 percent of swing voters did not blame Biden, and 12 percent said they were “not sure.” The poll was taken from March 18 to March 21, before border officials admitted they have begun releasing migrants at the border without even registering them in immigration courts. Rasmussen showed a wide partisan gap. Seventy-four percent of Republicans and 30 percent of Democrats blame Biden. Nineteen percent of Republicans and 60 percent of the Democrats do not blame Biden. But the poll showed other warning signs for Biden and his pro-migration deputies. Among likely black voters, 44 percent blamed Biden and 40 percent did not. Rassmussen reported 55 percent of non-white, non-black likely voters — a mix of Latinos and Asians — blame Biden. Young voters tilted against Biden, with 47 percent...
    A Rasmussen poll released Wednesday found that 75% of likely U.S. voters believe voters should be required to show photo identification before being allowed to cast a ballot. “Should voters be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote?” was the question posed. Of those polled, 89% of Republicans, 60% of Democrats and 77% of voters not affiliated with either of the parties responded “yes” to this question, according to the polling company’s report.

    The vast majority of Americans want Biden administration officials to stop the migrant caravan making its way through Central America when it reaches the southern border, a sentiment that comes as President Biden seeks to make amnesty for over 11 million illegal aliens a reality, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Friday found. A caravan of Honduran migrants is reportedly making its way to the southern border as the Biden administration begins to undo many of former President Trump’s policies, making immigration reform a top priority. Biden has been pushing an amnesty plan in his first days in office, aiming to grant U.S. citizenship to anyone who can prove they were in the United States illegally on or before January 1. While a Biden transition team member told NBC News that “now is not the time to make the journey” to the U.S., the official did say that help is “on the way.” A Rasmussen Reports survey released Friday showed that 60 percent of likely U.S. voters want officials to halt the caravan at the border. “That’s double the 30% of voters...
    Two of every three Americans want the federal government to block the caravans of migrant workers from Central America, says a Rasmussen Reports poll. The opposition among likely voters is deep and broad — except among liberals and people who earn above $200,000 per year. The poll asked: “Should the U.S. government stop all of the migrants in the Honduras caravan from entering, or should it allow them to enter this country temporarily until each of their cases can be individually reviewed?” The sample of 880 likely voters opposed the entry of the migrants by 60 percent to 30 percent. Conservatives oppose the entry by 82 percent to 13 percent, while “moderate” respondents oppose it by 55 percent to 34 percent. But liberals overwhelmingly favored entry for the migrants, with 63 percent saying the government “should allow them to enter this country temporarily until each of their cases can be individually reviewed.” Psychological studies show people who strongly oppose inequality tend to become liberals. In contrast, people who emphasize solidarity tend to become Republicans. Just 24 percent of liberals aligned...
    On January 5, President Trump’s job approval rating with Rasmussen was 47 percent. Today, the president’s job approval is 48 percent. The attack on Capitol Hill took place on January 6. Since then, there has been more than a week of 24/7, highly-coordinated media hysteria attacking the president as a traitor, as guilty of sedition, of being criminally liable for leading a violent coup against the United States of America … and his job approval rating is up a point. Don’t pay any attention to media pollsters. Please don’t. They’re all crap. All liars. All proven liars who have been deceiving and lying to you for at least three election cycles. Rasmussen is one of the few pollsters you can trust, so when Rasmussen tells us Trump’s support has not slipped, you can not only believe it, you are offered the opportunity to wonder why. The main reason why is that corporate media no longer have the power to sway public opinion. Look at what’s going on out there right now. You not only have the fake media accusing Trump...
    A daily tracking poll from Rasmussen Reports claims that 48 percent of likely U.S. voters approve of Donald Trump’s job performance as of Friday, while 52 percent disapprove. The rating is one percent higher than the president’s approval on January 5 — 47 percent — just one day before the riots at the U.S. Capitol that sparked the Democrat-led House of Representatives to impeach him for the second time in his term. In a piece for Breitbart, columnist John Nolte argued that the results of the survey reveal that the high-profile criticism of Trump’s role in the riots in the media is not representative of the population. “In other words, the media and Democrats and Hollywood are only talking amongst themselves. No one else is even listening. These institutions have turned it up to 11 for the past ten or so days, and have persuaded no one NO ONE to drop their support for Trump.” Nolte accused the Democratic Party of ignoring the violence of that stemmed from the summer protests and falsely accusing Trump of leading an insurrection. “These...
    A Rasmussen poll released Monday shows that President Donald Trump holds a 48 percent approval rating despite receiving widespread blame for his supporters storming and rioting on Capitol Hill last week. Forty-eight percent approve of Trump’s job performance, while 51 percent disapprove. Trump’s approval numbers have ticked up and down since the Christmas holidays when he received a 45-47 percent rating. Rasmussen poll In the new year, Trump’s approval rose to 49 percent on January 7 after his rally to “Stop the Steal” to contest the presidential election. Democrats moved to impeach the president again since the rally, citing the political “insurrection” on Capitol Hill that killed five people including one Capitol Police officer. Trump’s approval ratings could dip after suffering sustained criticism for the rally, but the Rasmussen survey does not reflect any polling dip so far.
    The Rasmussen poll, one of the most accurate polls of the 2020 election, finds President Trump’s approval is actually rising after Wednesday‘s protests. As Democrats move to impeachment and some establishment  Republicans call for the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, the poll finds 48% approve of the President’s job performance. A source close to the polling firm tells Newsmax that the rolling survey saw Trump’s approval soar to 51% on Thursday night. Trump’s approval has been up overall, jumping from 45% just before Christmas. “Americans are disgusted that cities burned for months and Washington and the media did nothing,” our source says, “But they still like Trump.” © 2021 Newsmax.

    Over one-third of Americans believe the media exaggerated the threat of the Chinese coronavirus, although 50 percent approve of the media’s overall coverage, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday found. Rasmussen Reports conducted the survey December 28-29, among 1,000 American adults, asking them to rate the media’s overall coverage of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

The question in the poll of 1,000 likely voters offered room for still-mourning Republicans to show support for a 2024 candidate younger than departing President Donald Trump, who would turn 78 during the 2024 race, and turn 82 in 2028. The “fresh face” option was picked by 52 percent of Republicans and 49 percent of conservatives. The “run in the past” candidate was picked by 33 percent of Republicans and 36 percent of Conservatives, likely indicating strong personal support for President Trump. Fifteen percent of both groups said they were unsure. The shift towards a “fresh face,” however, is accompanied by the overwhelming support for a Trump-like populist politician. For example, the same Rasmussen poll asked, “As the Republican Party reorganizes itself next year, should it be more like President Trump or more like the average GOP...
    A large majority of likely Republican voters want the party to be more like President Donald Trump than the average GOP member of Congress, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll. Just 24% of likely GOP voters see the average congressional Republican as a better model for the party than Trump, while 72% say the GOP should be more like the outgoing president. Still, according to the poll, a slight majority (52%) would like a new Republican on the 2024 presidential ticket while 63% among Democrats and unaffiliated likely voters want a fresh face. That data point is significant, because in a similar Rasmussen survey 6 years ago, 60% of likely GOP voters wanted a new face to be their presidential nominee, leading to the rise of Trump. Just 33% of this recent polls likely GOP voters would like a familiar face to lead the party, while 15% remain unsure. Among all likely voters: 40% say GOP should be like Trump. 45% say GOP should be like average congressional Republican. 14% were undecided. Among Democrat likely voters, 62% say GOP...
    Three of four GOP supporters want their legislators to “be more like President [Donald] Trump” in 2021, according to a Rasmussen survey of likely voters. The poll of 1,000 likely voters was taken December 21-22, as GOP legislators debate how to counter or cooperate with President-elect Joe Biden and how to regain the House majority in the 2022 midterm elections. The poll asked: “As the Republican Party reorganizes itself next year, should it be more like President Trump or more like the average GOP member of Congress?” Republicans picked the “more like President Trump” option by 72 percent to 24 percent, while conservatives split 67 percent to 28 percent. But the overall poll of 1,000 likely voters gave “average member of Congress” 45 percent, above the 40 percent for Trump. The poll said 14 percent were “unsure.” Women leaned against a Trump future, with just 35 percent picking the “more like Trump” option. So too did the “moderates” between liberals and conservatives, who picked Congress over Trump by 58 percent to 21 percent. Twenty-four percent of blacks favor a Trump-like...
    More than half of likely voters believe news media outlets ignored a report in October that Hunter Bidens laptop computer was found to have emails incriminating him and his father in illicit foreign business deals and potential influence peddling to help the elder Bidens presidential campaign, a Rasmussen poll released Tuesday found. Fifty-two percent believed the story was buried so as to not damage Joe Bidens presidential aspirations, 32% say it was ignored because it was a "partisan hit job," and 17% were not sure. Fifty-six percent believe it is likely the elder Biden was consulted and perhaps profited from his sons business dealings in Ukraine and China, including 43% who believe it is very likely. That outnumbers the people surveyed who believe the connection is unlikely 38%, and 22% who consider it very unlikely. The poll was taken Monday and Tuesday among a national survey of 1,000 likely voters, less than a week after Hunter Biden acknowledged the U.S. Attorneys Office in Delaware was investigating is tax filings. That admission came nearly two months after the New York Post...
    I’m leery of the Rasmussen Poll in some ways. In horserace polling they seem to produce results that favor Republican candidates compared to other polls with more solid reputation. But I can’t help passing along a poll they released recently that underscores the degree to which powerful biases, on both sides of the partisan divide, threaten the American experiment in democratic-republican self-government. To cut to the chase, when Rasmussen asked last weekend: Who is America’s biggest enemy as 2020 draws to a close — Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Trump voters or Biden voters? The most common answers were: Biden voters: 24 percent. China: also 24 percent. Trump voters: 22 percent. It’s a dumb question. But the answers are alarming. China, you could say, makes at least some non-partisan sense as the current candidate for America’s biggest enemy. Article continues after advertisement But the idea that Biden voters and Trump voters make up two of the top three bodes ill. And it’s actually much worse. As you can imagine, almost everyone who answered “Biden voters” was a Trump...
    A Rasmussen poll shows that Democrats are moving towards pro-American migration policies as Joe Biden prepares to implement pro-migrant, pro-business labor policies. A May 2020 question asked respondents if they favored admitting more foreign workers for blue collar jobs, just 54 percent of Democrats agreed that it is “better for businesses to raise the pay and try harder to recruit non-working Americans even if it causes prices to rise.” But that score jumped 10 points, to 64 percent, in the post-election November 15-19 poll of 1,250 likely voters. Similarly, in the May poll, 33 percent of Democrats said they preferred government to “bring in new foreign workers to help keep business costs and prices down.” In November, the response dropped 1o points to 23 percent, and the share of Democrats favoring cheap labor migration dropped from one-third to one-quarter. A smaller shift was seen among self-described liberals. Their preference for Americans rose from just from 58 percent before the election up to 61 percent after the election. Their support for extra foreign workers slumped from a pre-election share of 30...
    President Donald Trump’s job approval remained steady at 52 percent on Monday, according to Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Presidential Tracking Poll. A majority, or 52 percent, of likely voters stated they approve of Trump’s job performance, up three points from November 4, 2020. Of those who took part in the survey, 47 percent said they disapprove of Trump’s job performance. #Trumps daily job approval ratings are in!… https://t.co/mazBCW77nY #BreakingPoll @POTUS pic.twitter.com/QuxUzkKXrr — Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) November 16, 2020 At the same point in his presidency in 2012, former President Barack Obama saw a similar approval rating of 53 percent among likely voters. Since November 6, Trump’s job approval has remained steady above 50 percent, with Trump reaching 53 percent on November 11. The data from the poll also included 41 percent of voters who stated they “strongly approve” of Trump’s job performance, while 41 percent also said they “strongly disapprove,” giving him a presidential approval index rating of zero. The news comes as Trump pursues legal challenges in certain states regarding election fraud and as the country continues to recover from the economic impact...
    Rasmussen Reports, one of the most accurate pollsters of the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections, found 59 percent of likely voters are concerned “increased use of voting by mail will lead to more vote fraud.” A plurality of 44 percent are “very concerned,” while 15 percent are “somewhat concerned.” Only 27 percent are “not at all concerned, while 13 percent are “not very concerned.” Let me just stop now to make something clear… After the polling debacles of 2016, 2018, and 2020, it’s time for everyone to stop taking media polls and media-approved polls seriously. Any poll released by Fox News, the Washington Post, ABC News, Reuters, Quinnipiac, NBC, etc… these are fraud polls. These are polls put together by propagandists and liars. We have now had three — three! — election cycles where these pollsters have been exposed as shameless liars, and anyone who pays attention to them is a fool looking to be lied to. The pollsters who have proven themselves over the past few election cycles are Rasmussen, IBD/TIPP, Susquehanna, and Trafalgar. The rest are all proven...
    The presidential race in battleground Arizona is tightening in the final days leading to Election Day, as President Trump is diminishing Joe Biden’s (D) edge in the state, a Trafalgar Group survey released Friday revealed.

    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany hailed a RealClearPolitics polling average flip to President Donald Trump in the final week before before Tuesdays Election Day. McEnany tweeted Saturday: "President @realDonaldTrump officially takes the LEAD in ARIZONA." The most recent poll in the RealClearPolitics to turn the average into Trumps favor is the Rasmussen Reports poll Thursday that gives Trump a 4 percentage point edge over Democrat Joe Biden (49% to 45%). Also, the Trafalgar Group poll gives Trump a 2.5 percentage point lead, 48.9%-46.5%. Both the Rasmussen Reports and Trafalgar Group polls are generally regarded as more favorable to Republicans and both were the most accurate in the 2016 presidential election surprise. Trump leads by 0.6% in the RealClearPolitics polling average and all of the recent polls favoring Biden are vitual ties within the polling margin of error.

    The daily Rasmussen Reports poll that tracks black support for President Donald Trump shows the president sitting at 31 percent as of Thursday, just five days before the election.

So if Rasmussen is wrong, let’s say by a factor of two, if support from likely black voters ends up being just half of what the pollster found, just 15 or 16 percent, Trump would still end up doubling his 2016 share of the black vote, which would mean he won more black support than any modern Republican presidential contender. Bob Dole won 12 percent of the black vote in 1996 and...
    Almost one-third of black voters would vote for President Trump "if the presidential election was held today," according to a new survey. On Thursday, Rasmussen Reports, which typically produces Trump's preferred surveys, showed the number steadily increased from 27% to 31% since Monday. The company has boasted of accurately predicting the results of the 2016 election. According to Rasmussen's White House Watch poll, also released Thursday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds a 1 point lead over Trump among likely voters, with only 2% answering they were undecided. The poll was conducted Oct. 26-28 among 1,500 people with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. Trump had an identical lead ahead of Biden one day earlier.

    Most likely voters think social media platforms will censor information that may damage the Biden campaign leading up to the presidential election next week, according to a new poll. According to the survey, about 57% of likely voters say the censorship of negative news surrounding Joe Biden or his son, Hunter Biden will occur, compared to 29% who disagree. Among Democrats, 46% said Facebook and Twitter will censor information for Biden. That includes 50% of black voters and 69% of Latino voters who think social media companies will block unfavorable news about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden before next Tuesday.  Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen conducted the poll from Oct. 23 to Oct. 24 that included 1,842 likely voters and used a mixed-mode method.

    Drew Angerer, Getty Images With 7 days to go until Election Day, the national averages show a slight narrowing between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump. But Biden gained on Trump in the president’s favorite poll, and scored big in a few swing state surveys. Here’s what’s happening in the polls today: The National Picture It’s important to understand that the FiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics polling averages, the leading aggregates of polls, are very different from each other. You can read about those differences here. As of this writing, the RCP average has Biden at 50.7 percent to Trump’s 43.3, a 7.4-point gap that’s a few ticks narrower than it was yesterday, and within half a point of where it was when we began doing these updates last week. The FiveThirtyEight average similarly narrowed by three tenths of a point — and a full point closer together than last week. Even with the steady yet glacial narrowing trend, Biden remains above fifty percent in both averages. After a cup of coffee in the lead, Trump has again...
    President Donald Trump is narrowly leading Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Monday’s Rasmussen Reports’ daily White House Watch poll. Trump, with 48%, snuck past Biden, who garnered 47%, in the latest poll among likely U.S. voters. Monday’s poll marks a difference from just last week, where Wednesday saw Biden ahead 49% to 46%, Rasmussen reported. Monday marks the first time Trump has notched a lead since mid-September, according to the report. The president has 84% support with Republicans and Biden has 77% of support from Democrats. The president is also ahead by seven points with voters who don’t identify as Republican or Democrat, according to the survey.

    A daily tracking poll of President Donald Trump's job approval released Friday showed an eye-popping surge in approval for Trump among black voters. According to Rasmussen Reports, Trump's approval among black likely voters surged this week from 25% on Monday to 46% by the end of the week on Friday.

To say that the Rasmussen poll stands in contrast to other polling on President Trump's job performance is a gross understatement. According to the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Trump's job performance is an average 9.5 points underwater, 44.4% approve to 53.9% disapprove. Recent polls on Trump's approval other than Rasmussen have Trump at minus 9 points (Economist/YouGov), minus 16 points (Reuters/Ipsos), minus 14 points (Quinnipiac), and minus 12 points (Politico/Morning Consult).

    Morry Gash/POOL/AFP/Getty Images With 11 days to go until Election Day, former Vice President Joe Biden got some favorable polls in key battleground states, while President Donald Trump ticked up a few approval points in the pro-Trump Rasmussen poll. Here’s what’s happening in the polls today: The National Picture It’s important to understand that the FiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics polling averages, the leading aggregates of polls, are very different from each other. You can read about those differences here. As of this writing, the RCP average is unchanged since yesterday, and the FiveThirtyEight average narrowed by a barely-perceptible tenth of a point. In the coming days, Thursday night’s debate could have some impact on the race, and since post-debate polls showed Biden winning handily, there may be an expectation he will get a bump. But in a race this stable, that expectation may be unrealistic. Trump also gained 4 net approval points in the Rasmussen poll since Tuesday, putting him at 51 percent approval vs. 49 percent disapproval in a poll whose sampling and methodology generally favors Trump significantly.

    Two polls from Rasmussen are all good news for President Trump, who is surging, both in his overall job approval numbers and against Joe Biden. The president currently holds a 52 percent job approval rating, compared to 48 percent who disapprove. This is Trump’s first lift over 50 in this poll since late last month, since his first debate with Biden and trip to Walter Reed hospital with the coronavirus. At this same time in the first term of his failed presidency, Barry Obama sat at 50 percent in this same poll. Obama was reelected, and right now Trump is polling two points higher. In a head-to-head match-up with Biden, Rasmussen’s weekly poll shows Trump surging. Biden is still up 49 to 46 percent, but at this same time last week, Biden was up a whopping 12 points. The week before that, he was up eight points. Rasmussen also points out that this is the “first time in a month that Biden’s support has fallen below 50%.” This isn’t the only polling to show Trump on the move. Along with Rasmussen,...
