America to Sarah Palin: Enough!

(CNN) - A majority of voters say they've heard enough from Sarah Palin, according to a new national poll.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania survey indicates that 54% of voters say they've heard enough from Palin and would prefer that the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate be less outspoken in political discourse. That includes nearly two-thirds of Democrats, a majority of independents, and nearly four in 10 Republicans.

(CNN) – House Republicans are making it clear there won't be a speedy vote on President Barack Obama's $3.7 billion emergency proposal to address the immigration crisis on the southern border.

They believe less money is needed and more should be done to strengthen enforcement along the border, which has experienced an unexpected surge of children from Central America. Many of them are unaccompanied.

Democratic senator skips fundraiser with Obama

(CNN) - President Barack Obama says keeping the Democrats in control of the Senate is one of his top priorities this year.

But his trip to Colorado is a vivid illustration of just how much the President – who is the party's top fundraiser but who is also saddled with low approval ratings – can, and can't, help.

Poll: Obama gets thumbs up and thumbs down on Iraq

(CNN) - Former President George W. Bush gets more blame than his successor in the White House for the situation in Iraq, according to a new national poll which also indicates that majority of voters nationwide say President Barack Obama's move to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011 was the right thing to do.

But a Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday also indicates voters give Obama negative grades on how he's handling the current unrest in war torn Iraq.
