obama-frown-white-background

President Obama reportedly phoned home tonight to brief federal officials on the security protocols for resettling Syrian refugees in the United States and assured them that American citizens are safe; however, he took a moment to express his anger with those opposed to accepting refugees, calling them “scared of widows and 3-year-old orphans.”

Here’s a few examples of social media blowback. Read more here.

OH YES THEY DO: Polls Say Americans Prefer to Live Around Armed People

whiskey-ad-suburbia

Just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters would feel safer living in a neighborhood where nobody was allowed to own a gun over one where they could have a gun for their own protection

Charles C.W. Cooke writes: Today, Rasmussen finds that the vast majority of Americans also want to live around other armed people:

The question Rasmussen asked was, ”Would you feel safer moving to a cookeneighborhood where nobody was allowed to own a gun or a neighborhood where you could have a gun for your own protection?” From this, outfit drew the conclusion that ”Americans prefer living in neighborhoods with guns. This seems fair to me. After all, if you have the right to own a gun, everyone else does too. At the very least, though, one can take from this inquiry that the vast majority of Americans want the capacity to own a firearm for their protection, and that they would not want to move somewhere where it was prohibited….(read more)

U.S. Headed in the Right Direction! (Say 29%)

Obama-zzz

Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey for the week ending March 5.

This finding is down one point from the previous week.  The week ending January 25, the percentage of voters who felt the country was heading in the right direction hit 35%, the highest level of confidence in nearly two years,  but has been trending down since then. The number of voters who think the country is heading in the right direction had been 30% or higher since mid-December after being in the mid- to high 20s most weeks since mid-June 2013.

Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters now believe the nation is headed down the wrong track, up two points from the week before.

A year ago at this time, voters held an identical view of the country’s trajectory.

The national telephone survey of 2,500 Likely Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports from March 1-5, 2015. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 2 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

The older the voter, the more likely he or she is to believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Fifty-one percent (51%) of Democrats say the country is headed in the right direction. Eighty-three percent (83%) of Republicans and 71% of voters not affiliated with either major political party disagree.

Black voters by 50% to 42% margin think the country is headed in the right direction. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of whites and 57% of other minority voters say it’s headed down he wrong track.

The more money one earns, the more likely he or she is to think the country is heading in the right direction, but even among those who earn $100,000 or more a year, roughly 60% say the country is headed down the wrong track. Read the rest of this entry »


Bitter Fruit: The True Legacy of the Obama Era

obama-hopeless

Of all the bitter fruit of the Barack Obama disaster, the most bitter may be the sense of hopelessness that has descended on Americans, especially the young. Has there ever been anything like it in our history? Even on the eve of the Civil War, was there this much pessimism about our future? Gallup wasn’t around in those days, but I wonder.

For a simple measure of how the Obama administration has crushed any sense of hopefulness in the American people, take a look at the survey that Rasmussen Reports does periodically on whether America’s best days are behind her, or still in the future. It’s a great question that tells a lot about how Americans are feeling.

Rasmussen last asked the question before Barack Obama took office in August 2008, while the presidential campaign that resulted in Obama’s election was in progress. The result:

45% of voters think America’s best days lie ahead, while 37% think they have come and gone.

That was after nearly eight years of the supposedly disastrous Bush administration–which, by the way, looks more like a golden age every day, compared with what has followed. Read the rest of this entry »


REPORT: 9% Have Considered Quitting Their U.S. Citizenship

Citizenship For Sale (Garage Sale 2012)  ... F...

Few Americans have ever thought about giving up their U.S. citizenship, but nearly half think U.S. citizens should be able to be citizens of more than one country.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only nine percent (9%) of U.S. citizens have considered giving up their American citizenship. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Perhaps in part that’s because 93% consider it at least somewhat important to be a U.S. citizen, including 79% who think it is Very Important. Read the rest of this entry »


47% Think a Randomly Selected Group Could Do a Better Job Than Congress

More voters than ever now believe a group of people randomly selected from the phone book could do a better job addressing the nation’s problems than the current Congress. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters think such a randomly selected group could do a better job than Congress, up two points from May and matching the highest finding in regular surveying for nearly five years. One-in-three 33% disagree and do not think a randomly selected group could do a better job. Twenty percent 20% are not sure.

Obama’s Approval Rating Mirrors 2010

“For all of the wishful thinking in the mainstream press about President Obama’s positioning 40 days before this election, Obama’s approval rating looks remarkably similar to what it was on this date in 2010 — shortly before his party lost a historic 63 House seats and 6 Senate seats. On September 27, 2010 — exactly two years ago — Rasmussen Reports showed Obama’s net approval rating among likely voters to be minus-3 percentage points with 48 percent approving and 51 percent disapproving…”
