Townhall – Veterans Shaping America: Reflections on Memorial Day’s Political Impact

While Memorial Day is for cookouts, gallivanting on the beach, and spending time away from work and with our family and friends, we forget exactly what this day means to our country and to countless families nationwide. This year, I find myself reflecting more about the deep impact on the psyche of the generation that fought in the era of the "forever wars" from the turn of the century to today.

Statewide Poll: Oklahomans Say Education is a Top Priority, Support Career Pathways, and Oppose Minimum Wage Hikes and Foreign Land Ownership 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 17, 2024) – Cygnal, the nation's fastest-growing and most accurate private polling firm, released the following national poll (conducted Apr. 9-10) of 1,500 likely general election voters.  “This latest national poll shows a new key voter group emerging. They are young, ticked-off, diverse, working-class, and trending toward Republicans. These voters also skew more female, tend to be younger than 45, and a majority voted for Trump in 2020,” said Cygnal Pollster Mitch Brown. “Despite aligning well with the GOP base, these voters are more moderate and slightly more likely to view the Republican Party as more extreme. And while both Trump and Biden are underwater, with Trump just a tad more than Biden, the main difference is that this group is much more inflation focused. At the same time, illegal immigration and tertiary issues like healthcare are distant priorities. This is both an opportunity and a challenge for Republicans. They will need to speak to those top issues while not appearing extreme on fronts that don’t appeal to those issues if they want to maintain the advantage with 18 percent of the electorate that could swing the outcome of the election.”

National Poll: A New Group of Young, Ticked-off, and Working Class Voters Has Emerged + New Impacts of Inflation

Statewide Texas Poll: Trump, Cruz, Abbott Remain Strong While Democrats Struggle on the Top Issues; Voters Support E-Verify for All Businesses, Reject Woke Corporate Activism

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 11, 2024) – Cygnal, the nation's fastest growing and most accurate private polling firm, released the following statewide poll of (conducted Apr. 4-6) of 1,000 likely general election voters in Texas.  “Despite some national narratives about Texas turning blue, this latest survey shows good news for Republicans. Governor Abbott’s leadership in the state has helped to create a favorable political environment for Republicans up and down the ballot this November, while President Biden is a millstone around the neck of Texas Democrats,” said Cygnal Pollster John Rogers. “Democrats are losing ground with critical voting groups on major issues like securing the border—which has now become the top political issue for Texas voters both in state and federal elections. This is one among many reasons why Trump is leading statewide by nine points and by five points in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston media markets. Couple that with Allred’s slow start and poor name ID in the Senate race and it’s easy to see how Republicans remain well-positioned to keep Texas red.”
