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......
TOULOUSE – Under tight security, the people of France will begin voting for a new president on Sunday after debating for more than a year what the future of their country should look like. The options before them offer starkly different visions and reveal deep fault lines within French society over issues of race, nationalism and their country’s role in forging an inclusive and united Europe. Four candidates lead the pack – a democratic socialist, a far-right nativist, an establishment republican and a young, independent newcomer. Those candidates – Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Marine Le Pen, François Fillon and Emmanuel Macron, respectively –
MARINE Le Pen’s surging campaign will cause chaos among the EU 27 even if she loses the French Presidential election, a German pundit has claimed. Ms Le Pen looks set to take the lead in the first round of voting as polls place her slightly ahead of rivals Macron, Fillon and Melenchon. But Die Welt’s Klaus Gieger claims the far right firebrand will send shockwaves through the bloc even if she loses the election. Mr Gieger said: “After a victory of Macron or Fillon, France, Germany and Europe in general will win nothing at all. "They will be given five
ONE in seven of those who voted Labour at the last General Election will switch to the Conservatives because of Jeremy Corbyn, a Sunday Express poll reveals. in seven Labour voters from the last General Election will vote Tory, according to a poll Party leadership was the main reason for defection on June 8 as the survey put Prime Minister Theresa May 16 points ahead of Labour on 42 per cent, giving the Conservatives a thumping majority of more than 100. Twenty-six per cent of those questioned by polling company Norstat said they would vote Labour, while 10 per cent opted for
FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch because he believed she helped play down the investigation into Hillary Clinton´s private server, according to a new report. Comey ended up plunging the FBI into the center of the 2016 presidential election when he reopened the investigation into Clinton´s emails just weeks before the election. The New York Times revealed that Comey handled the investigations into Clinton and the president-elect at the time, Donald Trump, very differently. According to several government officials, Comey rewrote the script when it came down to the Clinton case, mainly because the FBI believed she would win
e-mail View comments Marine Le Pen was today poised for a historic breakthrough in France’s nail-biting presidential race. The far-Right leader is confident her chances of winning the election’s first round have been strengthened by last week’s terrorist murder of a police officer on the Champs-Élysées. But with the country on high alert as voters head to the polls, 48-year-old Le Pen – dubbed ‘Madame Frexit’ for threatening to follow Britain out of the EU – was accused of using the shooting for her own ends.
The Surgeon General appointed by President Obama stepped down Friday after he was asked to resign by the Trump administration. Dr Vivek Murthy will still serve on the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service. He was confirmed as Surgeon General in December of 2014. He has famously called gun violence a public health issue. Murthy has also said he believes marijuana can be helpful for some medical conditions. He is being replaced temporarily by Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams, a nurse and the Deputy Surgeon General. She has a doctoral degree in philosophy and a master of science in nursing
Paris (CNN)French police are hunting a man identified by Belgian security services in connection with an attack on police officers in Paris Thursday, a French interior ministry spokesman said. A gunman, who shot three police officers on the Champs-Elysee, killing one, was later claimed by ISIS through its media wing Amaq as an Islamic State "fighter" they dubbed "the Belgian." French Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told France´s Europe 1 radio Friday that it´s too early to tell what role the second suspect played, if any, in the attack. "There are probably, possible accomplices that need to be arrested which
Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr
The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia? Last September, my husband and I had a chance run-in with Barack and Michelle, who were in New York City for their last visit as
Tucker Carlson is moving to the much-coveted 8 pm time slot on Fox News on Monday, and with it comes news from Fox today that his first big interview will be with none other than Caitlyn Jenner. Per Fox News, Carlson and Jenner will speak on issues including “President Donald Trump’s administration, the current political climate and divide in America, as well as her thoughts on how to bring Americans together.” Jenner is returning to 20/20 tonight to speak once again with Diane Sawyer, and her appearance on Fox News Monday comes after Jenner’s comments to Sawyer about how while
Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist
A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"
Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers
A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a
