  • Voters Say Job Creation More Important Than Fighting Global Warming

    Voters continue to think global warming is a serious issue, but when given the choice, they believe job creation is more important than fighting global warming.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters consider global warming at least a somewhat serious problem, down slightly from April.  This finding includes 33% who believe it is a Very Serious problem. Thirty-seven percent (37%) don’t think global warming is a serious problem, up four points from the previous survey and the highest finding since April 2012. This finding includes 19% who believe it is Not At All Serious. Five percent (5%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Why the House Will Stay Republican by Michael Barone

    You probably haven't read much commentary about this year's elections to the House of Representatives. There's a good reason for that: The majority in the Senate is up for grabs, but it's clear to everyone who follows these things that Republicans will continue to control the House. But there are lessons to be learned from this year's House races, some of them relevant beyond this election cycle.

    The House math is fairly simple. Republicans won 234 House seats in 2012 and Democrats 201. There are three vacant seats now, but neither party has gained a seat in a special election or by a party switch.
