Bernie is running a grassroots, people-funded campaign and is therefore only beholden to us. The polls are telling the underlying truth: the more people hear Bernie, the more people like Bernie.
The Super Bowl is a 21st Century American spectacle echoing the ancient, Roman tradition of combat games in the Coliseum or annual sporting events in ...
President Obama just had a very good month in the polls. Not spectacular, mind you, but still better than any month since January of 2015. Essentially, Obama regained the job approval polling ground he lost over the previous two or three months.
Although the polls failed to predict Ted Cruz's Iowa win on Tuesday night, it isn't because they were dead wrong. They just ended too early. Consider this: SurveyMonkey data from Iowa showed a seismic shift among GOP caucus goers in the final week -- with Donald J. Trump losing six percentage points and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz gaining six in the last six days.
The historical data used to assign weights in polling surveys come from 2008, an anomalous year with unprecedented turnout in the Democratic primary.
I've been noticing that Democrats -- all the way up to and including Hillary Clinton herself -- seem to be awfully complacent about the possible outcomes of next year's presidential race. This could be dangerous, because nothing in politics is ever written in stone.
CNN recently released the results of a CNN/Kaiser Family Foundation poll asking "How big of a problem is racism in our society today?" It is probably ...
I've had the opportunity to conduct public opinion polls across the Middle East in order to provide content for policy discussions at the UAE's annual Sir Bani Yas Forum. We surveyed over 7,400 adults in six Arab countries (Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE), Turkey, and Iran.
It's been a month since I last took a look at the Republican presidential horserace, and there have been a number of dramatic developments in the meantime. So it's time once again to cast an eye over the Republican field.
Twitter polls have become all the rage and I am continuing to take full advantage of them each week by boldy engaging the public on current events and some of the greater dilemmas of our time.
After the Paris attacks happened, Carson wrote an editorial on what to do about the Islamic State for the Washington Post which was borderline incoherent. Now it looks like this floundering on foreign policy is beginning to hurt his standing in the polls.
When push comes to shove, people don't always do what they say they intend to do. They don't vote for the candidate or issue that they indicated they would.
Ever since JFK, aided by the first nationally televised debate, won the 1960 U.S. presidential election over rival Richard Nixon, television has owned the political discourse. The revenue bonanza from each election season is proof enough that no other medium can compete.
It's been a few weeks since I surveyed the Republican presidential field, but recent developments seem to indicate it's time to take another look. While much attention has been paid to Fox's reshuffling of who will appear on which debate stage, virtually nobody's talking about the complete collapse of Carly Fiorina's polling.
Politics and numbers make for strange bedfellows. This seems counter-intuitive as modern politics is actually loaded with numbers from polling to policy analysis. To illustrate, I ask you to consider the case of the humble denominator.
From emails to weapons deals and foreign donors, Bernie Sanders should address every concern pertaining to controversy and ethical issues related to Hillary Clinton. If the email scandal reminds Bob Woodward of Watergate, voters should be informed of the similarities.
