On the same day that President Trumps´ favoribility rating sank to an all-time low, a new poll found that a majority of young Americans view his presidency as illegitimate. Fifty-seven percent of adults age 18 to 30 believe that President Trump is an ´illegitimate´ leader according to a GenForward poll conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Among young adults of color, 74 percent of African Americans and 71 percent of Latinos/as view Trump´s presidency as ´illegitimate´, while a majority of whites (53 percent) view Trump as a ´legitimate´
Who cares? The pot smoking dancing hippies at Woodstock hated the war and Richard Nixon. Most of the dipwads questioned probably didn´t vote or register to vote so this is a stupid poll. If they knew what a great country this was in the fifties and early sixties they would know the difference between then and now and what Trump is doing.
Propaganda works. Clinton lied to Congress and the American people so Bush had to become a liar. Obama with multiple ssn´s and his own marketing brochure proclaiming his Kenyan origins, sealed records, brought about very real questions regarding his legitimacy to hold the office. Therefore Trump must also become illegitimate.
Call Me Irresponsible, but I don´t give a rip what 3/4 of any population thinks about ANY election--including the 44th or the 45th presidential election. Live by the ratings; die by the ratings. That is all Lo-Fos care about. Also, that is what public school education and college/university attendance gives us. A nation of neuts. (Like newts but slimier).
All the Democrat talk of being a democracy (America is a republic) and they violently oppose our 2016 vote... they do not respect the vote of citizens who want our country back from the brink of Marxism-into-Islamism... brought about by a truly illegitimate (in more ways than one) "president."
These days, 19 to 30 year olds were once known as ´´early teenagers.´´ Bunch of basement living, thumb sucking twits that have never had a real job nor have shown any responsibility towards anything except where the next freebie comes from.
Get back to me with your stupid polls once they´ve grown up. Of course, many of them NEVER will.
So I went online to find the methodology used. This is not a sample of young American adults. The authors do not claim it to be. It oversamples non-whites and grossly undersamples whites and they do not claim it is a poll of the total population in the study. Now looking at their methodology, I think it has many of the same problems that other polls have- mainly that people self-select for polls. By far most people say no and who says no is not at all clear to be the same sample as the people who say yes to a survey. So more fake news. As to my family, all three children view Trump as legitimate president- one voted for him and two didn´t. OUt of the two that didn´t, one is willing to give him a chance and actually likes lots of parts of his actions so far and even the one who doesn´t like most of his actions, likes some of them.
Just a testament to the power of the MediaCrats and the EntertainmentCrats. It´s been nonstop abuse of Trump since the election. He´ll probably hit 10% approval among the ignorant unless he can deliver a sucker punch.
For five decades, Democrat political leaders have been pumping poisonous disinformation into the heads of Black Americans in our inner cities. Dems are now telling them that Republicans´ efforts to promote school choice (which 2/3 of inner city parents support) is an attempt to "re-segregate" schools. (The last thing Democrats want is well educated inner city residents.)
I do believe that it is past time that Republicans begin a multi-pronged and well organized effort to work to pump truth into our inner city communities.
#36 the liberal Democrats have to do that to maintain their political power as if the racial divide in the country ever closed the vast majority of Black folks would stop voting for the liberal Democrats. As once those Black folks all had jobs and were earning their own money they would no longer vote for the Democrats who propose higher taxes at every turn. The leftist Democrats know that and it is a big reason who the Democrats are now pandering to the identifiable Hispanic minority group along with a new emerging foreign origin Muslim identifiable minority group to ensure that they can maintain big enough needy minority voter constitutencies to keep them in political power.
"The GenForward Survey is the first of its kind—a nationally representative survey of over 1750 young adults ages 18-30 conducted monthly that pays special attention to how race and ethnicity shape how respondents experience and think about the world."
I´m pretty sure this poll doesn´t tap any of my Sa´ami ethnicity relatives, nor the Galicians, nor the Somalians, nor even ~ most likely, not a one of the Aragonese.
But it purports to be a vehicle for examining how "race and ethnicity" shape experience?
They have an elemental problem ~ they do not know what race nor ethnicity is, but likely they are really down on 57 gender stuff.
A recent feature story there is titled "Why I’m tired of white gay men telling q---r stories"
Don´t think there´s more to be said about this crowd......
An estimated 20 cats have died after allegedly eating toxic cat food with dozens more understood to be critically ill. Cat owners have been showing up at vet clinics with their animals suffering from ´neurological damage´ which they claim was caused by Best Feline Friend canned food. The Australian Veterinary Association confirmed a series of complaints had been laid about the product and are investigating. Spokeswoman Rena Richmond said the neurological damage is possibly linked to the toxicity of pet food or deficiency. ´If your cat is exhibiting signs such as strange head or eye movements, wobbling, repeated circling or
Native American soldiers speaking in their own tongue helped the Allies win World War I. The original code talkers, the Choctaw and Cherokee, used their languages as indecipherable codes that the Germans could not solve. Their linguistic heroism came at a time when the United States government tried to eradicate their languages as part of a forced assimilation. And only by chance did an unidentified captain overhear two men in the 142nd Infantry Regiment speaking in their mother tongue, around the time of the Meuse-Argonne Offensive on the Western Front. At first the two men – identified in some accounts as Solomon Lewis
President Donald Trump is condemning the fatal stabbing of two good Samaritans trying to aid two young Muslim women as an avowed white supremacist harassed them in Portland, Oregon. Trump tweeted Monday: ´The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. Our prayers are w/ them.´ The attacks came on a light rail train last Friday, the first day of Ramadan, the holiest time of year for Muslims. Police identified the dead as 53-year-old Ricky John Best of Happy Valley, Oregon, and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche of Portland. Mayor Ted Wheeler said Best
MI5 has reportedly launched two urgent inquiries into how it missed the danger posed by the Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi. It comes amid claims he was repeatedly reported to the authorities. One review was started last week, which will aim to quickly identify any glaring errors, while the other will be more in depth, the Guardian has learned. The home secretary refused to comment on Sunday on whether opportunities were missed to spot the 22-year-old´s deadly terrorist intentions. Abedi, whose parents come from Libya, is thought to have received terror training in the country before returning to the UK just days before
A crowd of Muslims gathered on an Australian street to condemn terrorism in the wake of the Manchester attack. The group of Islamic men stood on a path in the middle of the Perth CBD in Western Australia wearing t-shirts that read: ´I am a Muslim, ask me anything´. Imam Kamran Tahir - who is an Ahmadiyya Muslim - stood alongside other Islam adherents while wearing the shirts in a bid to ease the fear surrounding the Islamic faith after the suicide bombing in Manchester. isconceptions about the faith The Perth man shared images of himself and fellow Muslims outside of the Murray
A memorial dedicated to soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan and Iraq is using 7000 boots to honor their legacy and service. The display - in its third year of existence - covers the recreation field at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and was created by Survivor Outreach Services (SOS). Retired Army veteran and Fort Bragg employee, Mike Thomas, has made it his mission to connect families unable to see the memorial with their loved ones. Last year, the former servicemen made a post offering to take a photo of any boot and send it to that soldier´s family and while the
FORMER SAS soldiers and ex-special forces troops are being shipped out to Spain’s tourist hot spots amid fears Islamic State could attack British holidaymakers. The former elite soldiers are set to patrol beaches as well as hotel grounds disguised as tourists in a bid to protect British sun seekers as they holiday in the Iberian country. Intelligence reports have indicated ISIS could be planning a repeat of the 2015 attack in Tunisia when 30 British holidaymakers were gunned down on a beach in north Africa. Areas of mainland Spain as well as the Canary Islands and the Balearic islands, which includes popular
A free-thinking group of eighth grades refused to pose with House Speaker Paul Ryan during a field trip to Washington DC on Thursday. Half of the students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey stood on the other side of the street as their classmates had their photo taken with Ryan outside the United States Capitol. When he uploaded the image to Instagram, the ones who had refused to be in it flooded the comments section with insults and complaints. ´Half of us stood across the street including me because we hate you,´ said one. Another spoke to DailyMail.com
Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists said. That’s because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Saturday that he would make his “final decision” this coming week on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged Trump
After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her
Angela Merkel has stunningly claimed Europe can no longer rely on the US, just one day Donald Trump frustrated world leaders at the G7 meeting in Italy. The German Chancellor urged the European Union to stick together in the face of new uncertainty stemming from the US and other challenges. Merkel said Sunday at a campaign event in Bavaria: ´The times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days.´ The comments came after the G7 countries were unable to agree to a deal that would see the 2015
(Video) Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said the public was “getting weary” that Democrats have not done enough to begin the process of impeaching President Donald Trump. Partial transcript as follows: REID: Congresswoman, on the subject of being more aggressive, you have openly talked about the fact that this president has put himself in a position where impeachment is on the table but your party, the Democratic party is very reluctant, The New York Times has an article out last week about how hesitant Democratic leadership, in particular, are to call for Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Hillary Clinton’s inner circle is concerned that the “resistance” that cropped up in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral win isn’t embracing the failed Democratic Presidential candidate as their de facto leader. As of late, Hillary has taken to marketing herself as the leader of the anti-Trump resistance, Tweeting about her defeat, haranguing Trump in public appearances and “persisting” despite her loss. It’s clear from Clinton’s Twitter feed, paid speeches, and comments that she wants to lead the mostly female opposition to Trump’s policy agenda. But according to sources close to Clinton’s inner circle, she’s yet again failing in
