Goudie.....I would suggest the same goes for those afflicted with TDS.

If they could have an out of body experience somehow and read what they are posting....I wonder how many would continue as they do?

He's only been President for 23 days, give him a little time ...

A more likely scenario, in my opinion, is a discredited "lame duck" Presidency that leaves ample room for other "actors" to assert their claims on this brave new world.

I admire your persistance SASless. Even empathise. I follow a football team that are perennial losers. It's hard to keep up a public face of support when you know deep down, no matter how much you try to suppress it, that you're onto a loser.

Loser....please do document your assertation by listing credible evidence?

Not Progressive Taking Points you wish to proffer as proof.

Trump took the proverbial wood to both political parties....won the Office....and now is taking the wood to the media and the Democrats.

You do understand his Popularity Rating is at 55%?

Independents favor him 70% and Republicans 90% and Democrats 30%.

The way I see it...you and those like you are in the minority.

Wrong.

Keep drinking Comrade Trumputin's kool-aid. Or maybe those figures were 'just what you were told', like the 306 electoral votes.

Check a credible polling organization....Rasmussen Reports.

Using NBC for such a Poll sure seems risky knowing they had Hillary winning by a landslide as you recall.

Just as you...they are wearing bloody diapers they are so butt hurt over being so far off on that forecast.

One must check for bias and sampling errors before giving any credence to a Poll.

It's NBC reporting on a Gallup poll. But let me guess, Gallup's not credible.


Trump Job Approval 21 Points Below Average at One-Month Mark | Gallup


Keep on drinking buddy.

Do they report the MOE and sampling data as does Rasmussen?

Even FOX missed the Trump win but was closer than NBC/Pew.

As to the attempted insult....wrong again....not a drop consumed in months and that was a Beer with dinner.

Why is it Progressives think insults and personal attacks can win every debate or sway someone to embrace their point of view?

Care to take a swing at that?

Why the assumption that because you think Trump is dangerous, you must be from the left/progressive? Seems to be common amongst Trumpets.

A good number of our resident Trumpophobics here live out of the country -- all you can learn about what is going on is what you see on the media.

But I can tell you, hanging out with real people, talking face-to-face, there is a real sea-change going on. Initially there were the "supporters" of Trump. They still are. And there were the Anyone-but-Trumpers. They're still around, as the national supply of Pampers has not been exhausted.

But there were also a boatload of people who didn't like Trump, but voted for him mainly because they couldn't bring themselves to vote for Clinton. The vast majority of those people have now turned into supporters.

It's a tremendous change, folks, Tremendous. Believe me.

Trump's approval rating sits at 40 percent 21 points lower than the average for presidents in the February of their first term, according to a Gallup poll comparison. It is also 11 points lower than Bill Clinton's, who had held the previous low after one month in office with an approval rating of 51 percent, Gallup said.


Petition status:
State visit Yes 311,470
State visit No 1,858,184
Ratio approx. 6:1

As I said earlier....Polls differ and for many reasons.

Rasmussen differs from Pew and Gallup.

We saw how Polling Agencies got it completely wrong when compared to the only Polling that matters and that is the actual Election.

Even FOX News....the media outlet that was the friendliest to Trump got it wrong as they too called it for Clinton.

The fact Trump won handsomely, and despite the whining by the Butt Hurt here, it is the Electoral College Result that elects the President and not the popular vote.

Our Founding Fathers for very good reasons, crafted that system to ensure our elections fairly represented the small states and prevented a few large states from holding sway. Even with their vision, we still see how a few States...California and New York primarily, can swing an election towards a Candidate despite many other States going the other way.

Obama promised within his first Year to fix the Immigration System in order to get the Hispanic Vote....he did not try instead he devoted most of his political capital to ensure we got Obamacare, his signature legacy claim to fame. (And we see how that turned out after the Democrats refused to bring the Republicans into the crafting of that Law.)

Trump is actually carrying out the Promises made during the Election which very much upsets a great many Apple Carts of both the Democrats and the Republican Establishment and the established Bureaucrats within the Executive Branch.

He is a threat to them by doing so.

The Media, we all know are not independent anymore, are embarrassed over their lack of trust and credibility due to their patent display of bias.

So....with all that in mind....Trump Haters are going to tell us about his being a loser...disliked....and having poor Favorability Numbers?

Well go figure!

The American People definitely are seeing him in a positive way...and no matter how the Media and the Democrats try (actually one and the same)....the truth is they are wrong again just as they were during the campaign and election.

I don't like every thing he does or says....or how he says it....but he is saying what needs to be said.

Does he make mistakes....sure....but at least he is doing something and that is what this country needs and wants.

Congress has an approval rating of about 14% and the Media ranks lower than Congress.

What does that tell us.....as by Rasmussen Trump is at 55%, Pew and Gallup at 40% or better.

Sorry....I will go with the winner.....and that is Trump no matter his Warts.

Politicians of all sides have got us to where we are today, none of them give a rats ass about any of the little people, and that's us folks.

Europe, hell of a job.

US, quite a mess.

Now, for better or worse, we have a businessman in charge, agree with him or not, doesn't matter.

All along he stated repeatedly what his prioritys were.

He won, not the Democrats or the Republicans, the vote was for him, his ideas.

Did he piss off both Popes on the way, absolutely, and the knives are out on both sides.

This country has never been so divided, and it's not because of Trump. Politicians know how to obtain and maintain (i.e. Share) the power and spoils amongst themselves, where we are today has been a very carefully laid out roadmap.
Unfortunately Trump just ripped it up and threw it out the window.

The issues this country has had for years need to be fixed, the politicians have ignored them for far too long.

Maybe, just maybe there is now a disruptor in the right place, again like him or not.

But for this country to heal itself in the many ways needed, sinking to verbal civil war and physical resistance is not the way to do it.

We all can either be part of a solution or be the problem.

A couple of playboys, cowboys and a community organizer didn't make any headway, perhaps a businessman can?

BTW, for all the rhetoric on these boards, in the press, etc., etc., none of our names were on any of the parties tickets.

If Trump does go to the UK on a State Visit....I shall link this Thread to the USSS for use in their Threat Assessment. That should make for some interesting commentary in the Pre-Trip Advance Party's Briefing Book.












Just kidding of course....I would not want all those Black Vans showing up in the middle of the night and dragging folks away in their PJ's, Robe, and Slippers.

Spin it all you want, SASless, that Rasmussen poll interviewed likely voters, not a random survey of adults. There's a difference and it is a well known difference amongst professional pollsters - the results nearly always favor Republican candidates and their issues. In addition, Rasmussen has been caught numerous times using a nefarious technique called 'push polling', where language is pointed to elicit a certain (slanted) response.

Indeed, why I cannot think of a more leftist group of folks as Faux News' Shep Smith, Republican Senator John McCain, or Bill Kristol, David Boaz, Ed Meese, or Glenn Beck.

Ar what approval rating does Trumpet have his pen confiscated and his Twitter accounts closed?

Do they actually take away his key to the White House rest rooms?

Lomapaseo, we can go on down to 0% with nothing actionable to show for it unless Congress decides to impeach. Perhaps the Federal government should adopt California's gubernatorial recall statute. Soon.

Did any poster in this thread happen to mention the fact that during the reign of ER, out of 109 total, only two out of a dozen US presidents have had the honor of an official state visit? They were Presidents Obama and his immediate predecessor, George W Bush.

The Trumpet will go on a state visit to the UK, that's a certainty. Whether he will get to meet and greet with the Queen is another thing. I would love to be a fly on the wall at Buckingham Palace. Would also love to hear the Duke of Edinburgh's thoughts on said Prez!
