Bipartisan momentum is growing against big tech companies as state attorneys general come together to challenge big tech companies. Last month a coalition of 48 state attorneys general, led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, announced a joint antitrust investigation into Google. Paxton charged that Google “dominates all aspects of advertising on the Internet and searching on the Internet.” The attorneys general are in close contact with the federal government, which has taken steps of its own to investigate Google and other tech companies. Only two state attorneys general declined to join the probe: California — home to Google and thousands
A new poll released last week by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal contains surprising information that could have a profound cultural impact in the years to come. It is interesting to note that the article releasing the results of the poll buries the lede. The NBC News’ headline reads, “‘A deep and boiling anger’: NBC/WSJ poll finds a pessimistic America despite current economic satisfaction.” Carrie Dann writes, “The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that — despite Americans’ overall satisfaction with the state of the U.S. economy and their own personal finances — a majority say they
As this nation continues to contend with major social and political discord and violence, perhaps the education world is turning to the roots of faith present before and since America’s founding. For the first time, the 51st annual Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) poll on public education issues included questions on teaching Bible classes in public schools. Given that PDK is a secular organization, the results were surprising: Specifically, among all adults, 58% say schools should offer Bible studies as an elective, and 6% say Bible studies should be required, totaling 64% who favor Bible classes in one of these formats.
Gallup recently released a 2019 public opinion poll that revealed rising pro-life support in certain areas. The poll surveyed public attitudes about abortion. There was a lot of information given in the survey results, but here are five key takeaways: 1. Pro-life identification is at its highest level since 2013. In 2013, the number of people who identified as pro-life dropped to roughly 44 percent. This 2019 poll showed that the number has increased to 49 percent. 2. Those who want to see Roe v. Wade overturned are still in the minority. While the number of people who identify as
As we get closer to Election Day 2019, an important race to pay attention to for conservatives, especially social conservatives, is Governor Matt Bevin’s re-election bid in Kentucky. Bevin’s race is significant because he has aggressively pursued a robust pro-family agenda and has drawn significant criticism from the Left because of it. Bevin is in a tough race, but his ideas have strong support. According to a poll commissioned by American Principles Project (the parent organization of The National Pulse) taken in January, 722 respondents answered the following question: How would you rate the job Matt Bevin has been doing
After months of speculation, former Vice President Joe Biden has finally jumped into the presidential race. It’s early, but Biden leads the polls by a huge margin. The RealClearPolitics average of Democrat primary polls has him with a 13-point lead over the dozen-plus other candidates in the race. Biden also outperforms the rest of the field in hypothetical general election polls against President Trump. While most hypothetical national polls pitting Trump against the Democrat field show Trump with a lead of a few points, the RCP average of national Biden vs. Trump polls shows Biden with a staggering 8-point lead. Again,
For the first time in a long time, Democrat candidates for president are being seriously challenged — by both sides — about their positions on abortion. Abortion has long been a sacred cow of the Left. There has not been a serious pro-life Democrat to run for president in decades, so support for abortion has been a given for the party’s presidential contenders. The extent of the debate has mostly been relegated to clichés like “safe, legal, and rare” and “between a woman and her doctor,” and Democrats have generally not gone into detail on their positions, unwilling to call
President Donald Trump, during his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, criticized New York’s expansive new abortion law and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s (D) recent comments defending infanticide: There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our Nation saw in recent days. Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love
