If it's in the News, it's in our Polls. Public opinion polling since 2003.

 

COMMENTARY BY JOHN STOSSEL

  • The Next President By John Stossel

    It's not smart to get too enthusiastic about any politician. I've been disappointed often. I believed Bill Clinton when he said, "the era of big government is over." I thought George W. Bush was a "small government guy." And Barack Obama ...   

  • Freedom of and from Religion by John Stossel

    Religious oppression was one reason many of our ancestors came to America. They wanted to escape rulers who demanded that everyone worship their way. In Ireland, Catholics couldn't vote or own a gun.

  • A Right to Discriminate by John Stossel

    Bake me a cake, or go to jail!

  • The Next Bubble By John Stossel

    They're doing it again!

    When the last housing bubble burst, politicians blamed "greedy banks." They said mortgage companies lent money recklessly, making loans to people with dubious credit, for down payments as low as 3 percent.

  • Gentrify! by John Stossel

    No matter what you do, modern liberals will tell you you're wrong.

  • Chicago Fray By John Stossel

    Rahm Emanuel, current mayor of my old hometown, Chicago, is not a gentle soul. But he's smarter than his big-spending predecessor, Richard M. Daley, and the union pawn, Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, who becomes the new mayor if he beats Emanuel in a run-off election April 7.

    Emanuel was the tough Obama chief of staff who reportedly stabbed a table with a steak knife as he listed political enemies.

  • What's Fair? By John Stossel

    Donald Trump's kids and Paris Hilton's siblings were born rich. That gave them a big advantage in life. Unfair!

    Inequality in wealth has grown. Today the richest 1 percent of Americans own a third of the assets. That's not fair!

    But wherever people are free, that's what happens.

  • Raping Culture By John Stossel

    A new documentary calls colleges like Harvard and Notre Dame "The Hunting Ground," where rapists prey on women. A bipartisan group of senators demand new rules to "curb campus sexual assaults."

    Apparently, new laws are needed because at colleges, sexual assault is "epidemic." Rape is so common that there is a "rape culture."

  • Kochs and Unions by John Stossel

    Lots of people sure hate the Koch brothers.

  • No Gatekeepers by John Stossel

    For years, people assumed encyclopedias had to be created by professionals. Then Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales attempted to create an encyclopedia without central planners.
