In August, it seemed that the China trade war could only get worse. Yet suddenly the prospects for a China trade deal this fall have brightened. Late Wednesday, President Trump pushed back the tariff hike set for Oct. 1 by two weeks.
As the 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidates battle it out for the nomination, politicos must also pay close attention to President Donald Trump's approval rating across the 50 states. While Trump's national approval rating has been hovering below 50% for his entire presidency, it was on the upswing for the beginning of the summer before only beginning to falter a bit toward the end of July.

While Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., continues to generate buzz, she has not been able to secure the second place poll position against Bernie Sanders, D/I-Vt., in 2020 Democratic presidential nomination polls. Despite his repeated gaffes and growing speculation over health concerns, Joe Biden continues to maintain his front-runner status.
Vienna, VA – In a new report released by the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council), based on the findings of a mid-August 2019 TechnoMetrica survey of small businesses, the authors found that online advertising has become a critical strategy for entrepreneurs and startups to grow and launch their businesses, and they are saving significant time and resources through their digital efforts.
Pundits’ predictions of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s political demise, so frequently heard over the past year, have proved not only premature but dead wrong. Prognosticators declared her presidential candidacy dead on arrival even before her introductory campaign video intended to explain her Native American ancestry was widely panned as the political equivalent of the Hindenburg disaster. Warren has been belittled as Hillary Clinton-Redux, a shrill — read: female — Ivy League liberal certain to trigger the same misogyny that made Clinton Kryptonite to too many Americans. Her soak-the-rich policies have been derided as the worst of both worlds — not socialist enough to dislodge Sen. Bernie Sanders’ lock on the left-most quadrant of the Democratic party but too threatening to moderate Democrats to gain traction in the party’s middle.

Try as they might, Joe Biden’s contenders for the presidency can’t seem to dent his firm lead in the polls, which means that rank-and-file voters aren’t, apparently, as worried about his becoming the nominee as political pundits are.
Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang said he is sure he can prevail over polling frontrunner Joe Biden, declaring that a vote for the former vice president is a regressive step back in time.
Investor’s Business Daily reports, “President Donald Trump’s job approval rating fell to 39% in the September IBD/TIPP Poll, matching February’s reading for the lowest in a year. The erosion in the Trump approval rating comes as Americans registered greater disapproval of the escalating China trade war.”
LOS ANGELES -- September 4, 2019 -- The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, a leading national poll on consumer confidence, dropped by 7.8% to 50.8 in September. This marks the second consecutive month optimism has declined. The index remains above 50.0 overall however, pushing its record run in positive territory to 36 consecutive months. An index reading below 50.0 for the IBD/TIPP indexes indicates pessimism.
Investor’s Business Daily with a poll — and, by the way, I need to repeatedly remind you that the IBD poll remains one of the most accurate polls in recent years in predicting the outcome of various elections, including presidential. What they have determined in this latest poll is: “Public Turned Off by Media’s Relentlessly Negative Coverage of Trump — 55% of the public says they’ve grown ‘weary from the media’s persistently negative coverage of President Trump.’
In the cornucopia of pro-Clinton polling that preceded the 2016 presidential election, two polls stood out as outliers: the USC/LA Times tracking poll and the Investor's Business Daily/TIPP tracking poll.

All night long, we heard the news networks talk about how "all" the polls and pundits were wrong. They were saying that Clinton is underperforming expectations, and voters were coming out for Trump in numbers no one had expected.
With the 2016 election nearly upon us, the political world is once again awash with presidential polls. Many of them show very different things, with some showing Hillary Clinton ahead and others Donald Trump. They can't all be right. How can you tell which polls to trust?
The venerated Gallup Poll took a beating this year for being such an outlier in its predictions of who would win the presidency, and the New York Times's Nate Silver has now served up further evidence that the firm has lost its mojo. Silver analyzed the results obtained by about two dozen top polling firms that ran multiple surveys in the last three weeks of the campaign and then ranked the pollsters based on their accuracy: Gallup came in dead last, with an average error of 7.2 points compared to the actual results.
