New CNN/ORC poll finds President's approval rating to be 53 percent, with 45 percent disapproval

In a new CNN/ORC poll, despite this week’s challenges, President Barack Obama’s approval rating is now at 53 percent, with 45 percent disapproving of the job that he is doing as president.  However, most Americans also take very seriously all three concerns that were raised last week - Benghazi, the IRS, and the AP subpoenas - and  most say that Republicans in Congress are not overreacting to these issues.

Nearly 60,000 Latinos turn 18 each month in the United States and many pollsters predict the collective impact of Latino votes will be a deciding factor in several of the most contested “battleground states” for the 2012 presidential election.  CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien reports on how Democrats and Republicans are reaching out to the swing voter demographic of Latinos, with a lens on the pivotal state of Nevada, a state with both the fastest-growing Latino community in the nation, and a state that has voted for the last 24 of the last 25 U.S. presidents.

CNN Poll: Romney tops GOP field

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) – Hours before a major showdown in the battle for the GOP presidential nomination, a new national poll indicates that nearly one in four Republicans say they would most likely support Mitt Romney as their party's nominee.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, the former Massachusetts governor, who's making his second bid for his party's presidential nomination, grabbed the support of 24 percent of Republicans and independent voters who lean toward the GOP, with former Alaska governor Sarah Palin at 20 percent, ahead of the rest of the field.

CNN/ORC Poll: Republicans want a winner

One day before a CNN/WMUR/New Hampshire Union Leader Republican presidential debate, a new national poll suggests that when it comes to the next election for the White House, Republicans put winning over ideological purity.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Sunday morning, three-quarters of Republicans and GOP leaning independent voters say they want a party nominee who can defeat President Barack Obama in 2012, even if that person doesn't agree with them on every issue. That's up seven percentage points from January.

CNN/OPINION RESEARCH CORPORATION POLL: Trump tied for first in GOP horserace

Washington (CNN) – Donald Trump is now tied with Mike Huckabee for first place when Republicans are asked who they support for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, according to a new national poll.

But while a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday indicates that the real estate mogul and reality TV star has nearly doubled his support since mid-March, it doesn't mean he has smooth sailing ahead.

"More than four in ten Republicans say they would not like to see Trump toss his hat in the ring," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

Nineteen percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents questioned in the poll say that as of now, they'd be most likely to support Trump for next year's GOP presidential nomination. Trump says he'll decide by June whether he runs for the White House. An equal amount say they'd back Huckabee. The former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate says he'll decide by later this year if he'll make another bid for the White House.

CNN Poll: Americans flunk budget IQ test

If you think cutting the government's budget is as easy as taking the ax to some unpopular federal programs, a new national poll suggests that you should think again.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday, most Americans think that the government spends a lot more money than it actually does on such unpopular programs as foreign aid and public broadcasting.
