Republican Main Street Partnership and Women2Women Unveil New Polling

RNC debate qualifying poll conducted by Echelon Insights shows Trump maintaining considerable lead (59%); Vivek Ramaswamy and Ron DeSantis tie for second place (11%); mental health crisis a major concern, especially among parents.

The Republican Main Street Partnership (RMSP) and Women2Women have released a new national poll with nationally recognized research firm Echelon Insights. With nationwide polling of 1,026 likely Republican primary voters, the data reveals some surprising new insights about top primary voter concerns following the first GOP presidential debate. The poll was conducted with a sample and methodology that is in accordance with the RNC's criteria for debate-qualifying polls.

"Donald Trump is still polling well, and his absence at last month's debate seemed to do him no harm. Even with a clear second tier occupied by DeSantis and Ramaswamy, the only other candidates in double digits, this is a divided field that only advantages the man with the highest name ID in the world," notes Sarah Chamberlain, RMSP President and CEO. "In order for hopefuls to narrow this gap to Trump, they need to make serious headway among voters, promoting clear agendas that will actually address the problems like cost of living and mental health that voters really care about."

The poll was conducted August 31 - September 4, 2023. Some key findings include:

  • Donald Trump is still the clear frontrunner for the GOP, garnering a majority of support among respondents (59%). He performed most strongly among non-college educated individuals (64%), within the 18-39 age range (64%), among mothers (67%), and the most conservative voters (68%).
  • Voters are split on a runner-up candidate, with both Vivek Ramaswamy and Ron DeSantis tying for second at 11%. The third tier of candidates includes Mike Pence and Nikki Haley, both rising to 6% following the August GOP presidential debate. The only other candidates to gain the support of at least 1% of respondents are Tim Scott, Chris Christie, and Will Hurd, all at 1%. 
  • Top voter issues include cost of living (27%), immigration (17%), jobs and the economy (16%), and political corruption (13%). Cost of living is a particularly acute issue for voters, with parents naming it as their top concern (40% of mothers and 32% of fathers). 
  • Mental health is a critical topic of concern among voters, with an overwhelming majority of respondents considering both children / teen mental health (76%) and adult mental health (69%) to be a crisis. For adult mental health, drugs and addiction is seen as the top contributor to this crisis (37%), followed by lack of mental health resources (22%). For children / teen mental health, social media is the biggest cause for concern (32%).
  • Parents and younger generations are especially concerned about the mental health of children and teens, with the issue polling highest among the 18-39 age range (85%). Nearly every mother (93%) and two-thirds of fathers (68%) consider mental health to be a major problem among children and teens.
  • Nearly one-in-three (30%) of likely Republican primary voters believe that climate change is a crisis, with the sentiment strongest among younger voters aged 18-39 (38%). Regarding how to tackle climate change in Congress, 39% of respondents want their members to support policies producing more natural gas, 31% of respondents want to promote American innovation and develop more clean energy technology, 27% support an increase in clean nuclear energy production, and 22% support placing pressure on China to reduce its carbon pollution.

METHODOLOGY: This survey was fielded from August 31 - September 4, 2023, among a sample of N=1,026 likely 2024 Republican primary voters nationwide. Respondents were contacted through web sample providers and completed the survey online. The sample was matched to the L2 voter file to verify respondents' voter registration status, and was weighted to population benchmarks for likely Republican primary voters nationwide on gender, age, race/ethnicity, education, and Census region. Calculated the way it would be for a random sample and adjusted to incorporate the effect of weighting, the margin of sampling error is ± 3.8 percentage points. This survey was conducted by Echelon Insights on behalf of the Republican Main Street Partnership.

Non-Profit Ministry Hits Major Milestone in Bible Video Game Development

Non-Profit Ministry Hits Major Milestone in Bible Video Game Development
The Anointed

Video Game Image of David in the Shepherd's Field

Alabama-based non-profit video game publisher Intelligent Media & Design (IMD Interactive) recently announced that its free-to-play Bible video game The Anointed: David Saves Keilah (DSK) recently hit a major milestone in development.

The Anointed franchise is now one step closer to beta with it's latest development update on Steam. The update includes basic training and shepherd levels, enhanced combat, stealth, cinematics, tutorials and platforming. 

DSK is a smaller version of The Anointed: Heart of David (HOD), which follows the life of biblical hero David from shepherd to king of Judah. The Anointed: HOD references multiple books in the Bible, primarily beginning in 1 Samuel 16 and ending in 2 Samuel 2. 

IMD also announced that in the last 12 months, with over 2.2 million impressions, DSK has been installed on computers in over 130 countries with a very small marketing budget.

IMD Interactive President Drayton Cosby stated that the latest Steam update is a big leap for IMD and puts The Anointed in position to move away from proof of concept (POC) to the minimum viable product (MVP) stage of its launch phase.

“With this update, we are now ready to test our small group curriculum with churches,” said Cosby. “This is an exciting time for those that have been praying to reach Generation Z and youth leaders searching for innovative methods to bring more students to God’s Word.”

IMD Interactive Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Head of Interactive Carlo Romano stated that IMD works diligently to shift expectations, which have historically been low for Christian media and video games. 

“We have accomplished much with a fraction of the resources that secular and popular games have,” said Romano. “Our hearts drive us, and support is building, as people begin to recognize our games are more than just entertainment.”

IMD Interactive Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Matt Clark said there is no more interactive and engaging way to tell a story than video games, and he thinks that the best stories for every generation are the ones in the Bible. 

“We are striving to bring the ancient world to life for our players in a fun and entertaining way, so players get a feel for what David and his time was really like," said Clark. “We hope this leads players to be curious for what else is in the Bible, especially the stories about the son of David, King Jesus.”

To access the The Anointed: DSK Steam store page, players must be 13 years of age or older. For parents who are considering allowing younger children to play, please visit IMD’s YouTube videos and FAQs for more information.
