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.

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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Last week, we began our preview of the 2020 presidential primaries by looking at the front runners for the Democratic nomination. In this next part of our series, we’re looking at the middle tier of candidates who are reaching more than 1 percent in early polls. These are the candidates who would have a decent […]


The 2020 Democrat presidential primaries are taking shape as the first real round of polls comes out. In five national polls released since the midterm elections on November 6th, former Vice President Joe Biden is the clear front runner, leading in four polls and trailing Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) by just two points in the fifth. Most […]


The Kavanaugh confirmation fight may be over. But the larger battle is still raging. For months, polls have showed an “intensity gap” between Republicans and Democrats for the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats have been much more excited to vote in the elections, and enthusiasm is critical for turnout. But polls taken in the aftermath of […]


With just over 100 days to go before election day, what’s the state of the battleground Senate races? The party which controls the White House usually loses seats in Congress in the first midterm after the presidential election. This year is unique in that Republicans could be poised to lose seats in the House while […]


A common narrative Americans typically get from the media has been that women are vehemently more pro-abortion than men. However, Democrat pollster Celinda Lake has recently come forward to suggest this line of thinking may not be true. Lake, president of Lake Research, spoke with Joe Concha on Hill TV’s “What America’s Thinking” earlier this […]


Newly released poll data should give pause to those who doubted Trump’s tax cut and regulatory reform agenda. It’s now official: the Trump economy is doing so well that the mainstream media is forced to acknowledge it. From CNBC: For the first time since President Donald Trump took office, the CNBC All-America Economic Survey shows […]


Results from Gallup’s annual Values and Beliefs poll released this week reveal that the majority of Americans are in favor of placing legal restrictions on abortion.

Is this year going to look like 2010 or 1998? It’s the end of May, and this week came with the stunning news that the generic ballot gap has narrowed to almost zero. The “generic ballot” is a type of poll which asks voters if they would be more likely to vote for the Republican […]


Before the start of this month, the prevailing narrative in the media (even among many conservative commentators) was that the millennial generation was an army of socialists-in-training. Pundits pointed to the rise of Bernie Sanders as evidence that millennials detested capitalism and would bring our economy to ruin if ever empowered. I attacked this “Communist […]


This article was originally posted at The Hill. Over the past several months, political pundits and media elites alike have decided we are headed toward a “blue wave” in this year’s midterm elections. This narrative is spoken as if it is an absolute certainty, reminiscent of the “Hillary Clinton is unbeatable” conventional wisdom in 2016 — and […]


A poll was released earlier this week that provided a little bit of a shock for Republicans: according to Quinnipiac, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) holds only a 3-point lead over Democrat challenger Beto O’Rourke. The release of the poll immediately caused some panic on the Right as well as some frothing at the mouth on the Left […]


With midterm primary battles now heating up nationwide, one race conservatives should pay close attention to is in Pennsylvania, where three Republicans are vying to take on the incumbent Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf. The vote seems likely to be a close one. According to a recent poll of 800 GOP likely voters in Pennsylvania released […]


This article was originally posted at The Stream. Dems are chortling with glee about the election on Tuesday night: They snatched another victory in deep red territory. Trump won Pennsylvania 18th congressional district by 20 points. On Tuesday, the Democrat Conor Lamb eked out a win over GOP’s Rick Saccone. Dems are smacking their lips: They […]


In today’s Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard discusses a fascinating new Harvard study on the political attitudes of the Millennial generation. For me, a Millennial, Harvard’s research amounts to the single-most revealing study ever undertaken on our generation. Tragically, the Washington Examiner‘s headline — “Millennials now biggest voting group in U.S., 2-1 Democratic” — buried the […]
