May's Political Report examines American public opinion on a variety of topics now in the news:
  • The military is the top institution in American life. Three quarters give it high marks; 11 percent give Congress high marks.
  • The Bin Laden Bump: Obama’s ratings are up. His handling of the economy isn’t.
  • Gas prices continue to drive negative assessments of the economy.
  • Does Obama deserve re-election? We examine four major pollsters’ questions.
  • Americans on the move: Geographically, the U.S. population is moving south and west. Most Americans live close to where they were born, and 42 percent have a valid passport.
