    Substance and style -- it's easy to get them confused or mistake one for the other. And they're never entirely unconnected, though exactly how much so is a matter of debate.

  • Most Favor Trump's Litmus Test for Potential Immigrants

    Most Americans favor screening out immigrants to this country who don’t share our values or a belief in our basic constitutional freedoms.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of American Adults favor a proposal to keep out “those who do not support the U.S. Constitution or who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States would not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred for reasons of religion, race, gender or sexual orientation.” Just 19% oppose such a ban, while 21% are not sure.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 63% of American Adults believe most major news organizations are more concerned with getting a story first than with getting it right, although that's down noticeably from 84% in September 2013 when we first asked this question. Twenty-nine percent (29%) think getting it right is the priority for most major media groups, up from just 10% in the earlier survey.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • 2018 Governors: The Battle Lines for Drawing the Lines By Geoffrey Skelley and Kyle Kondik

    Given the Democrats’ poor down-ballot performances in the Obama years, and the Republican dominance of redistricting following the GOP’s success in the 2010 midterm, it’s somewhat fitting that arguably the Democrats’ most marquee victory in 2016 will not help them in the redistricting battles to come after the 2020 census.
