The Democratic National Committee’s first Democratic debate of the election year on 14 January launches a new phase of the 2020 Democratic presidential contest - the primary voting season, with Iowa’s caucus-goers set to make the nation's first picks in early February.
Americans narrowly oppose President Donald Trump's impeachment and removal from office, the January IBD/TIPP Poll finds. The public backs President Trump's decision to kill a key Iranian military leader and applauds his handling of the economy. For a president who has never polled particularly well — and whose job approval rating remains 8 points under water — this is the equivalent of being on a roll.
The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index hit a 10-month high in January, as low interest rates and a China trade deal lifted the Dow Jones and broader stock market to new record highs. All the good news for the Trump economy boosted support for federal economic policies to a 16-year high.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is holding on to his lead in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is closing in on him while regaining her momentum, according to a new poll by Investor's Business Daily/TIPP.
LOS ANGELES -- January 14, 2020 -- The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, a leading national poll on consumer confidence, continued to reflect positivity in January, rising 0.7% to 57.4. Despite a slight decline on the Six-Month Economic Outlook component, the index maintained its record run in positive territory, remaining above 50.0 for 40 consecutive months. An index reading below 50.0 for the IBD/TIPP indexes indicates pessimism.
Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a steady, though hardly comfortable lead in the Democratic nomination battle, the January IBD/TIPP Poll finds. Yet Biden's biggest selling point since he entered the race — his electability vs. President Donald Trump — is at its lowest ebb of the 2020 election. Meanwhile, left wing support remains divided, with Elizabeth Warren overtaking Bernie Sanders for second place.
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.
