The CNBC First Quarter All-America Economic survey conducted earlier this month found 34{09f965da52dc6ab4c1643a77bd40d1f729d807040cd8db540234bb981a782222} of Americans think keeping U.S. jobs from going overseas should be a top priority for the administration.

The April NBC/WSJ survey finds voters prefer a Democrat controlled Congress to a Republican controlled Congress by a margin of 47{09f965da52dc6ab4c1643a77bd40d1f729d807040cd8db540234bb981a782222} to 43{09f965da52dc6ab4c1643a77bd40d1f729d807040cd8db540234bb981a782222}. That’s no different than where we left off in late October 2016 when all registered voters preferred Democrat over GOP control of Congress by 46{09f965da52dc6ab4c1643a77bd40d1f729d807040cd8db540234bb981a782222} to 44{09f965da52dc6ab4c1643a77bd40d1f729d807040cd8db540234bb981a782222}.

Tell me if you’ve heard this one…America elects a president based more on celebrity than on credentials and more on his promises than on his actions. He is the unlikely candidate that vanquishes the opposition’s establishment candidate, one with decades of experience in government and in foreign relations. He has a captivating presence, is an […]

A recent national survey conducted by Quinnipiac University asked respondents who they considered as the best president of the past 70 years.  Two presidents rose to the top of the heap – Ronald Reagan (30{09f965da52dc6ab4c1643a77bd40d1f729d807040cd8db540234bb981a782222}) and Barack Obama (29{09f965da52dc6ab4c1643a77bd40d1f729d807040cd8db540234bb981a782222}). Both Reagan’s and Obama’s support is buoyed by respondents from their respective political party.  In addition, […]
