According to a new Gallup poll, Hillary Clinton is still incredibly unpopular. Via Fox News: It’s been more than seven months since Election Day, but Americans’ opinions of Hillary Clinton remain the same. A new Gallup poll finds just 41 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the former presidential candidate, with 57 percent expressing an unfavorable view. […]


A new poll out in Virginia shows that tomorrow’s gubernatorial primary election may be a lot closer than many originally predicted. Previous polling showed establishment favorite, former RNC chairman and unsuccessful 2014 Senate candidate Ed Gillespie, with a comfortable double digit lead over Prince William County supervisor — and outspoken Trump supporter — Corey Stewart. However, […]


Gallup released the results of a new poll conducted from May 3-7 which surveyed American’s views on abortion. Here are five key takeaways. 1.) Believing abortion should be allowed under any circumstance is a very unpopular position to hold. Only 29 percent of those surveyed believe abortion should be legal in all circumstances. 2.) Nearly […]


As I’ve covered before, many media observers have pointed to ESPN’s increasing leftward tilt as a reason for their hemorrhage of viewers and subscribers. ESPN has taken notice of this criticism, and yesterday, the sports network came out with a survey on the matter that confirms their bias — though you wouldn’t know it based […]


Today the Keystone Report, a popular “Drudge-style” blog focused on Pennsylvania politics, published a new poll commissioned by American Principles Project suggesting that Gov. Tom Wolf (D-Pa.) will likely struggle to win re-election in 2018. Less than 35 percent of Pennsylvania voters approve of Gov. Tom Wolf’s job performance, while 43 percent disapprove. A majority of Democrats said they were less likely to support Wolf […]


If you have tuned into cable news or opened a newspaper recently, chances are you have come across a story highly critical of President Trump. However, despite the constant negative coverage trained on the President, its effect on Americans’ opinions appears to be muted. By comparing Trump’s approval rates with media coverage positivity rates, an […]


According to the results of a poll released Thursday, only 51 percent of U.S. adults actually think that new civil rights laws are needed to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. The Gallup poll conducted from May 3-7 asked participants, “Do you think new civil rights laws are needed to reduce discrimination against lesbian, […]


It should come as no surprise that Americans are now more divided than ever when it comes to the sources they rely on for their news. However, new polling shows that a frightening number of both Democrats and Republicans have lost their trust for news media as a whole. According to a Pew Research Center […]


New voter research from Priorities USA, a pro-Democrat super PAC, shows that among voters who switched from Barack Obama in 2012 to Donald Trump in 2016, and who were primarily responsible for delivering Trump a decisive electoral victory, many are struggling financially. The research also shows that a plurality (42 percent) view Democratic policies as […]


The Democrats, like moths to the flame, can’t help turning Hillary Clinton into a martyr-hero. In Manhattan, she gets rapturous applause every time she goes to the theater, which she has taken to doing surprisingly often. Unlike George W. Bush or John McCain, she barely waited a few weeks before plunging into criticism of the President […]


Morning Consult is out with a fresh batch of approval ratings for all 100 U.S. Senators. Check out the top three most popular senators, as rated by their constituents: 1.) Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) 75 percent approve 21 percent disapprove 2.) Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) 70 percent approve 22 percent disapprove 3.) Senator John Barrasso […]


As Dominic wrote earlier this week, the #FakeNews media has run with a ridiculous narrative that President Trump’s approval ratings have plummeted because of the GOP’s failure to pass the new health care replacement bill. However, polls demonstrate that this narrative is, in fact, misleading — voters are not blaming the failure of the health […]


Last Friday, the country learned House Republicans’ attempt to repeal Obamacare had been officially abandoned, at least for the time being. Paul Ryan later admitted their failure, declaring Obamacare to be “the law of the land” and that Republicans would have to live with the former president’s healthcare law “for the foreseeable future.” Since last […]


“President Trump’s approval rating hits a new low.” Thus proclaimed USA Today earlier this week, furthering the narrative popular in the mainstream media that Donald Trump’s presidency is off to a rocky start. It’s no secret that ever since Trump announced his candidacy for president in June 2015, his favorability ratings have been unusually bad — […]


The mainstream media set low expectations going into President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress on Tuesday evening. Since his inauguration, they have been in a sort of war with Trump, especially since the debut of his latest executive order on immigration. Ironically, however, these low expectations may have worked to Trump’s advantage, as polling […]


A new Rasmussen poll suggests that Frank Cannon is right: Donald Trump is winning his war with the media and the Democrats. The attempt to “de-normalize” the Trump administration is failing. Just 29 percent of likely U.S. voters think it’s better for the country if the Democrats oppose President Trump in every way possible. Sixty-three percent […]


President Donald Trump is beating the media, and it’s about damn time. For years, there’s been a real detriment to conservatives that’s never been confronted by any Republican leader, at least not to this extent. That’s including former President George W. Bush. And the great thing is, Trump is winning on it. In yesterday’s episode […]


Every year, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) concludes with a straw poll. In past years, during President George W. Bush’s second term and President Barack Obama’s two terms, the highlight of the poll was determining who the conference’s attendees thought the best Republican candidate would be to run for president. Past winners include: 2005: […]


Donald Trump’s personal approval ratings are all over the place, ranging from plus two points (Rasmussen) to down 12 points (Pew, Gallup) in Februrary polls. Maybe the polling chaos is due to different polling models, or maybe it’s because people aren’t telling pollsters the truth, but it could also be because personal approval varies a […]


Everyone got it wrong… well, almost everyone. Frank Cannon, president of American Principles Project, and a respected conservative political strategist with more than 30 years of experience, got it right consistently throughout the 2016 election cycle: Taking Trump Seriously (03-13-15) Jeb Bush Is Not A Convincing Frontrunner (04-16-15) Ted Cruz Will Be A Serious Contender (04-24-15) […]
