  • Governors 2017-2018: The Democrats’ Complicated Path to Big Gains By Kyle Kondik

    A couple of weeks ago, Crystal Ball senior columnist Alan Abramowitz unveiled a model for predicting party change in next year’s gubernatorial elections. The results were rosy for Democrats: The model suggested Democrats should gain somewhere between six to nine governorships depending on the Democratic lead in House generic ballot polling. The Democratic advantage is in large part simply because: 1.) There is a Republican in the White House, and the presidential party often loses ground in midterm elections up and down the ballot; and 2.) Republicans are defending 26 of the 36 governorships up for election next year, meaning that they have a lot of ground to defend while the Democrats have relatively little.

  • Most Still Say Newcomers Should Adopt American Culture

    The majority of voters still say newcomers to America should adopt our culture, language and heritage, but that number is down from surveys over the past few years. More than ever now say they should keep their own customs.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters say that when people move to America from other parts of the world, they should adopt America’s culture. That’s down from 72% in December and the lowest finding since late 2012. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters Think China Should Be Doing More to Reduce North Korean Threat

    China announced late last week that it will not intervene if North Korea initiates an attack against the United States, but will step in to prevent an attack on North Korea if the United States initiates. Few Americans consider China an ally, and most think Beijing should be making more of an effort to curb the nuclear threat from North Korea. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
