Gallup Poll

Jun 4, 2014 — The survey finds that nearly a third believe the Bible is the literal word of God, while nearly half said a supreme being inspired the text.

Jan 15, 2014 — In a monthly Gallup poll of American attitudes, dissatisfaction with the political leadership topped all other issues among Democrats, Republicans and Independents. But dissatisfaction with the government was down from a peak of 33 percent last October.

Oct 2, 2012 — In another demonstration of how different the partisan lenses are through which voters view the political landscape, a new poll finds most Democrats dismiss the notion of pollster bias in surveys showing President Obama ahead of Mitt Romney. Republicans, by and large, believe it.
Comments |
Jan 18, 2012 — Why do some many people have issues with evolution? Does it really need to threaten belief or are there ways of disentangling the two?

It would likely cause higher interest rates not just for the federal government but throughout the economy.

Jun 21, 2011 — A fifth of the respondents said "no," which closely tracks the responses to the same question in annual polling since 1967. The only significant blip in that survey question occurred four years ago, when former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney staged his first presidential campaign. The resistance to a Mormon candidate dipped slightly then after Romney addressed his faith in a speech aimed at evangelicals who don't consider Mormons Christian.
Comments |
Jun 13, 2011 — A new Gallup poll provided more evidence of Romney's growing strength as frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination, boosting the chance that other GOP White House hopefuls will seek to raise doubts about him in voters' minds at their New Hampshire debate Monday evening and beyond.
Comments |
Apr 21, 2011 — Viewed quarterly, his current rating is above those of Reagan, Carter and Clinton at the same points in their presidencies. It's below those of Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon and both Bushes
