US Census may start asking sexual orientation questions

Posted by

The U.S. Census, always seeking ways to go above and beyond its constitutional role of counting the number of people in the United States, may be planning to ask questions regarding sexual orientation in the 2020 Census community survey. A national advisory committee has been tasked with the question of how to…

There are a number of flip opportunities, just check out the Operation Counterweight Final List. But this one would be special, getting rid of David Cicilline in my home District in favor of Brendan Doherty: The latest polling showed Cicilline with a single digit lead within the margin of error and a vote…

Gallup’s Daily Tracking Poll today shows Romney leading among likely voters 51-45% and 48%-46% among registered voters. I wonder whether the people in this video are part of the 51% or the 45%. I’m guessing the 45%.

Heading into last night’s debate, I didn’t believe Candy Crowley would be an honest broker or that the room would be filled with “undecided” voters.  Both doubts were proved true at the same moment. Of all the statements that Crowley decided to fact check, why that particular one about what Obama said…

A reader writes: Good morning! Any guesses as to what this referencing???? http://octsurprise.com/ The tweets for the website (private to protect their sources) say the campaign knows about it and is scared. “It has the potential to change the election into a landslide.” This will come out right before the last debate on Monday…

My initial impressions of the Town Hall debate were reflected in my guest post at USA Today, Obama needed debate blowout but didn’t get it: The question as far as the election goes is who drove the narrative which matters. While Obama landed many class envy and “war on women” punches, Obama…

Best Tweets of the Presidential Town Hall Debate

Obama was much more animated, and I’m sure liberals on Twitter and elsewhere were happy much as during the Biden-Ryan debate. But I don’t think it helped Obama much. I’ll be interested to see the focus groups and polling. Obama got in some one liners, but Romney completely nailed it…

Starts at 9 p.m. Eastern. It’s hard to imagine that Romney will crush Obama as badly as in the first debate.  It just has to be more even, which will be enough for the MSM’s “comeback kid” narrative which already has been written.  Maybe there was a time the media could drive…

The standing of the media may be what is most at stake in tonight’s debate, as moderator CNN’s Candy Crowley comes under intense scrutiny after perceived “fails” by Jim Lehrer and Martha Raddatz in the two past debates. Both the Romney and Obama campaigns have jointly agreed that questions should only come…

The much demonized kulaks (a/k/a the top 5%, 2%, 0r 1% depending upon the speech) were the first to rise up against Obama. Now the kulaks have been joined by the common peasantry, via NPR: As Mitt Romney and President Obama get ready for their second debate, a new bipartisan survey shows a surge…

Obama’s Progressivism: the Least Good for the Smallest Number

The guiding principle of the then-new Progressive Movement more than a century ago was: The greatest good for the greatest number of people.  Which was verbatim the rationale invoked by President Teddy Roosevelt when, in 1905, he approved construction of the aqueduct that would steal divert water from the Owens Valley…
