Even so, Barack Obama's advantages among women voters over his GOP rivals are striking. One of the consistent tenets in public opinion on the ACA is this: while the law as a whole has never gained majority support, many of its component parts -- from the relatively narrow to the core and comprehensive -- have been consistently popular over the past two years, with the glaring exception of the individual mandate. Americans do not reject healthcare reform en masse.
However, his approval rating on the economy is up from 30% in November after descending to a term-low 26% in August. A plurality of the public (41%) believes young adults, rather than middle-aged or older adults, are having the toughest time in today's economy.
But twice as many blacks (40%) as whites (20%) say it is very divided. In reality, presidential election outcomes can almost never be attributed to a shift in a single demographic group.
And just 19 percent of whites say that racism is a big problem in America, vs. Likewise, most campaigns are decided by the popular vote, not the details of the Electoral College.
First, Richard Lugar decided to seek reelection, and second, Richard Mourdock emerged as his ONLY challenger. President Obama leads former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney in Virginia, but voters in the commonwealth are evenly divided on the White House's major policies, a new Washington Post poll shows. New research by a team of psychologists from Canada, Italy and Switzerland shows that undecideds are not impartial, but instead reveal a preference for information that confirms their gut reactions. Let's look closer at this key demographic and debunk some of the biggest whoppers. Majorities of Americans say that global warming and clean energy should be among the nation's priorities, want more action by elected officials, corporations, and citizens themselves, and support a variety of climate change and energy policies, including holding fossil fuel companies responsible for all the "hidden costs" of their products. Opinions about a pair of contentious social issues, gun control and gay marriage, have changed substantially since previous presidential campaigns. Majorities of both Democrats and independents favor the policy, while a majority of Republicans oppose it. A majority of Republicans say for the first time that the war in Afghanistan has not been worth fighting, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll that comes as the continuing U. presence in that country is emerging as a key point of contention in the presidential race. With Rick Santorum's exit from the presidential race, Mitt Romney can at last turn his attention to the general election.
On gun control, Americans have become more conservative; on gay marriage, they have become more liberal. Approximately four months since Harvard IOP polling indicated that Barack Obama's approval ratings among 18- to 29- year olds reached new lows, there is evidence to suggest that the President and Democrats more broadly are beginning to regain the approval of this important segment of the electorate. A month of intense media focus on the Affordable Care Act, spurred by the three days of oral arguments in the Supreme Court over a case challenging the law, did little to change Americans' basic view on the health reform law. Americans are fed up with Congress and a federal government perpetually frozen in conflict, but voters remain sharply split over how to ease the gridlock in the nation's capital, according to a new United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll. In 2008 less than one-third of Hispanic voters supported the Republican nominee for President. Compared to 2008, President Obama is underperforming among this critically important voting bloc in battleground states where Hispanic voters will be the determining factor. He'll have to start by convincing his own party that his candidacy isn't a lost cause. [A] review of what Americans know about the political parties shows that the public is better informed about the partisan affiliations of two popular recent presidents -- Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton -- than it is about the positions of the parties on key issues that dominate the current national debate. More Americans think Supreme Court justices will be acting mainly on their partisan political views than on a neutral reading of the law when they decide the constitutionality of President Obama's health-care law, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. With the general-election campaign beginning to take shape, President Obama holds clear advantages over Mitt Romney on personal attributes and a number of key issues, but remains vulnerable to discontent with the pace of the economic recovery, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Afghans express a growing sense that the Taliban have become more moderate, and the public broadly supports a negotiated settlement with them -- even if that means ceding government control of some provinces, the latest Afghan Futures survey has found. We find that Swing Independents are "opportunity" voters -- preferring an optimistic, opportunity framework on the economy over one based on fairness. Opportunity addresses their anxieties about the future, concerns that America is slipping, doubts about how the next generation will succeed, and questions over how we will strengthen our economy. President Barack Obama's job approval rating averaged 46% in March, up from 45% in January and February, and significantly improved over his term-low 41% monthly averages recorded last summer and fall. Majorities of both whites (72%) and blacks (89%) believe the country is divided by race, the poll finds.
