By Randy Hall Reporting on poll results might seem like an easy task, especially during a midterm election. However, Politico’s chief polling analyst Steven Shepard would benefit from revisiting the old adage that “there are lies, damn lies and statistics.” While reporting on the latest Politico/Morning Consult survey, Shepard stated that “one key demographic group …Continue reading "Politico Calls Dem Women ‘Turbocharged’ to Vote, But GOP Women Are Almost the Same"
By Dave Andrusko For the last post of the week (as I often do), a few thoughts about President Trump’s approval rating and what is known as the “generic ballot“ where pollsters ask people which party they would support in a congressional election without tying the question to specific candidates. Why? The November mid-term elections …Continue reading "Don’t buy the narrative, it’s just intended to help pro-abortion Democrats"
By Dave Andrusko What a coincidence. I was just about to write a post in which I had begun by thanking people for their kind responses to “The deceitful three-pronged pro-abortion attack on Judge Brett Kavanaugh” that I wrote yesterday when I ran across a story that reinforced my argument many times over. You may recall …Continue reading "Media loathing for President Trump leads them astray just as it did in 2016"
By Dave Andrusko When outlets such as CNN figure out that “Support for abortion rights depends on how you ask the question,” you can’t help but wonder what discovery is next? Perhaps that the sun rises in the east? But enough of that. Grace Sparks should be given credit for acknowledging what we’ve been saying …Continue reading "Of all places, CNN writes comprehensively about abortion polling"
Pro-life work in 2016 elections paying dividends for unborn babies By Karen Cross, National Right to Life political director Pro-life Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has been overwhelmingly reelected as Speaker of the House. Pro-life Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was unanimously reelected Senate Majority Leader on November 16. Today’s vote count for the Speaker position was …Continue reading "Pro-Life Rep. Paul Ryan Re-elected Speaker of the House"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. This appears on page one of the November digital “Election Issue” of National Right to Life News. PLEASE immediately forward the entire issue to pro-life friends and family. If there’s anything we can say for certain–besides that pro-life Donald Trump is closing fast on pro-abortion Hillary Clinton–it is that whatever …Continue reading "Donald Trump’s numbers continue to rise in key “swing state” four days out from Election Day"
By Dave Andrusko In six days the most topsy turvy election of my lifetime will end, culminating in the election of our 45th President. Naturally, we will continue to post daily updates on the electoral lay of the land. Here is an overview of the latest numbers–not all, but the most important. I’ll then fill …Continue reading "Trump and Clinton tied, but Clinton losing battle of enthusiasm and honesty/trustworthiness"
By Dave Andrusko For today’s installment of “Do they honestly think we’re THAT stupid?,” I offer you a new poll commissioned by the National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH), another pro-abortion front group. To be clear, this is a free country. Anyone can commission a poll– as National Right to Life has at times. But, …Continue reading "More pro-abortion push-polling to get the “right” answer"
By Dave Andrusko All polls on abortion must be read carefully, but that is especially true for one released November 19: “US opinion torn on Texas abortion law as Supreme Court readies to hear arguments.” I strongly suspect the objective of the Reuters/Ipsos poll is to reach the conclusion that the public strongly disagrees with …Continue reading "Digging beneath the surface of new poll reveals many extremely encouraging nuggets"
By Dave Andrusko Last week, when NRL Political Director Karen Cross wrote about the November 3 victory of pro-lifer Matt Bevin in the Kentucky gubernatorial contest, she mentioned that, once again, the polls were way off. Those off-by-a-mile polls were, unfortunately, not an anomaly. Author and political analyst Michael Barone wrote about that today for …Continue reading "Why are political polls increasingly so inaccurate?"
By Dave Andrusko Talk about a clash of cultures. There I was Sunday afternoon, waiting in my car for my son to arrive from work, listening with rapt attention to coverage of Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia on the radio. Out of curiosity I switched channels to see what National Public Radio was doing. As …Continue reading "Pro-abortionist grasps that polls are moving, but miss they are moving in the direction of life"
By Dave Andrusko Sometimes what appears to be almost a throwaway line in a news story is important, not because it tells us something new (although it might) but because it acknowledges a truth which rarely sees the light of day. First the backdrop for the results of a CNN poll released today. The hook …Continue reading "CNN poll finds that 58% believes abortion should be illegal in most circumstances"
