Watching the Polls


WATCHING THE POLLS….I sometimes feel a little guilty for not posting poll results more often, but I figure you hardly need me for that, do you? Still, we’re down to the wire and it’s worth seeing the big picture of public opinion as the race careens to its end. And the big picture is….no change. In the RCP poll of polls, Barack Obama is still way ahead of John McCain.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
