A few days ago I wrote about the latest Gallup polling as to whether Americans sympathized more with Israel or the Palestinians.

Consistent with prior years, Americans overwhelmingly favor Israel by more than a 3-1 margin, while Bibi Netanyahu’s popularity has soared, Gallup: Americans still LOVE Israel a lot, Netanyahu popularity soars.

Isreali Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is visiting the U.S. this week, and will meet President Trump.

At the same time, there is a slice of the population in which the support has...

According to a recent Gallup poll, D. C. gridlock and “do nothing Congress” accusations seem to have taken its toll on Americans’ preference for divided government.  Just 20% of Americans now prefer the presidency and Congress to be controlled by different parties…the lowest it’s been in 15 years.

Now, Gallup has released a poll confirming the fears that many of us had in 2008: Obama was the second coming of Jimmy Carter.

Donald Trump has a “favorability” problem. Poll after poll shows Trump doing poorly against Hillary Clinton head-to-head, perhaps reflecting Trump’s historically low levels of favorability (and high levels of unfavorability) for a leading major party candidate.

In response, a meme was created and spread far and wide earlier this month that Trump’s favorability is no...

According to Gallup, the percentage of people who identify with either the Democrat or Republican party is “nearing historic” lows.
