Jon McHenry's comments on the political effect of President Obama's Ebola response in the Washington Times:
"It's pretty clear that the best politics is to do a travel ban," said Jon McHenry, vice president of North Star Opinion Research in Alexandria, Virginia. "In that sense, the president, regardless of what's going on behind scenes, seems to be detached and inactive on another situation that people care about. This is yet another case that seems to show a lack of leadership on his part." ... The Ebola infections and the CDC's missteps are keeping the news story alive and making it difficult for Democratic candidates to talk about topics other than the administration's apparent incompetence, Mr. McHenry said.
"It's another issue on which Democrats are having to defend the president or turn around and attack the country's response on this," he said. "At a time when they want to be talking about almost anything else, they're talking about the administration again."
He added, "It reinforces a pattern of what people believe that they're seeing - a lack of leadership, a lack of engagement. Whether it's being slow to react in Ukraine, slow to react in Syria with [the Islamic State], he charitably has a very deliberate approach but, being less charitable, seems to not put the sense of urgency on issues that voters want him to have."
How the crisis plays out politically might well depend on whether any more cases of Ebola surface in the U.S., Mr. McHenry said.
"If someone in Ohio winds up getting this, then it's going to look like a pandemic to the public," he said.

Jon McHenry's comments in Huffington Post about polling the Kansas Senate race:
-Jon McHenry (R), North Star Opinion Research: "I would ask a three-way ballot first: 'If the election for U.S. Senate were being held today and the candidates were (ROTATE: Pat Roberts, the Republican, Chad Taylor, the Democrat, and Greg Orman, an Independent) for which candidate would you vote?' Then I would ask: 'If the election for U.S. Senate were being held today and the candidates were just (ROTATE: Pat Roberts, the Republican, and Greg Orman, an Independent), for which candidate would you vote?' I think you have to take into account that Taylor will be on the ballot, but you also want to see where the ballot might be heading.

Jon McHenry, a vice president at North Star Opinion Research who specializes in quantitative and qualitative public opinion polling, agreed.
"This is the equivalent of a national political committee fundraising letter. They've stated in the cover letter their position on the issue, and proceed to ask respondents if they agree with them," he said.
