President Barack Obama’s approval rating in Virginia is over 50 percent, and he would take the state in presidential voting if the election were held today, and by a comfortable margin. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee does the best of the expected Republican contenders and still trails Obama by a 52 percent-to-43 percent margin, according […]
Donald Trump would hold a healthy early lead over the Republican field in the 2012 presidential race if he were to throw his hat into the ring. That’s the finding of a new survey of likely GOP primary voters conducted by Public Policy Polling. Trump has the support of 26 percent of likely Republican primary […]
The good news for Republicans – Barack Obama is testing weak in the national polls. The good news for Barack Obama – Republicans are testing even weaker. “Obama’s numbers continue to tell the same story. Voters aren’t all that enamored with him right now, but when they look at him, and then they look at […]
Polling done last week in Virginia suggests that Barack Obama would do well in what has become a key swing state in the 2012 presidential election. Obama, who in 2008 became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win Virginia since the 1960s, leads his closest potential Republican challenger in the state by six points, according […]
Barack Obama is polling better in the first month of 2011 than he has since late 2009. A new Public Policy Polling survey of voter preferences looking way ahead to November 2012 buttresses recent gains in job approval in other surveys. Obama would beat Republican presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee by five-point margins, […]
Rampant speculation continues over what Sarah Palin’s plans regarding 2012 might be. The conventional wisdom: She’s running, no question about it, yep, she is, damn the torpedoes, or she’s not, because she’d rather be a conservative celebrity, because being a conservative celebrity pays more than being a presidential candidate. I’d like to throw in a […]
Edited by Chris Graham firstname.lastname@example.org A new Public Policy Polling survey released on Monday has former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leading the potential 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination field.
Are we about to reprise the pendulum swings of the Gingrich-Clinton era? Report by Chris Graham email@example.com Might we see a repeat of 1994 in 2010? The short answer: yes. Next question: Might we then see a repeat of 1996 in 2012? Well, maybe. “For all the trouble Barack Obama’s had lately voters still […]
A new poll has the seemingly quite politically vulnerable Barack Obama looking OK in a series of hypothetical matchups with possible 2012 GOP presidential hopefuls. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are at best within hailing distance, down seven and nine points, respectively, in the poll released this morning by […]
Let’s pretend for a minute that I’m a Republican Party strategist. So I’m musing on the news that somehow, some way, Sarah Palin is even more popular among the GOP base now that she’s up and quit her job as governor of Alaska barely halfway through her one term in office, that two-thirds of my […]
It wasn’t exactly Macaca. “You have two jobs,” former Republican Party presidential-nomination candidate Mike Huckabee told a gathering of GOP faithful in Tazewell County while campaigning for Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell this week. “One, get all those people who are going to vote for Bob out to the polls and vote. If they’re not […]
Column by Chris Graham firstname.lastname@example.org I wrote a piece yesterday about the growing sentiment among conservatives that it might be best for John McCain’s sinking campaign if Sarah Palin would volunteer to step aside as the GOP vice-presidential nominee in favor of another more seasoned candidate. Here’s what I think – that would be the […]
Analysis by Chris Graham email@example.com Don’t believe it when you read that John McCain hasn’t made up his mind on a running mate. That said, I’m willing to bet that McCain wishes he wouldn’t have to go public on this tomorrow, given that he’s pretty much damned whatever way he goes in his Veepstakes. The […]
