  • What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls

    Americans continue to rank Independence Day second only to Christmas as the nation’s most important holiday but also express increasing frustration with the government born that day.

    The Declaration of Independence, the foundational document that Americans honor on the Fourth of July, says that governments derive their authority from the consent of the governed, but just 25% believe that to be true of the federal government today.

  • Welcome to the Machine, President Sanders By Ted Rall

    Rising in the polls, Bernie Sanders is already posing a credible threat to Hillary in the key primary state of New Hampshire. Having gone in one month from left-wing curiosity to serious contender, his confidence is soaring.

  • Americans Are Staying Put This 4th of July Weekend

  • Support Grows for States to Ignore the Federal Courts

    Following last week’s controversial U.S. Supreme Court rulings on Obamacare and gay marriage, voters believe more strongly that individual states should have the right to turn their backs on the federal courts.

That’s up nine points from 24% when we first asked this question in February.  Just over half (52%) disagree, down from 58% in the earlier survey. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.
