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......
Former President Bill Clinton was spotted having a night out on the town in Dublin with a couple of wealthy Irish businessmen hours after speaking at Martin McGuinness´s funeral. Clinton, dressed casually in jeans, sweater and a blazer, was photographed leaving Peploe´s Wine Bistro on St Stephen´s Green on Thursday night with Irish billionaire businessman Denis O´Brien and well-known hotelier and philanthropist John Fitzpatrick. The group appeared to be in high spirits as they spoke with a passerby as they left the restaurant, a known hotspot for celebrities and politicians. Fitzpatrick, an Irish-born, Manhattan based hotelier, is a longtime friend of the Clintons,
A terrorist rams his car into a crowd. Then he steps out and starts knifing civilians. That was Wednesday in London, but in Israel it can be any day of the week. So the terrorist attack at Westminster outside Parliament, which killed four, would surprise no Israeli, particularly as to this pattern of terrorism. In Israel it’s been going on for years…deadly car rammings and indiscriminate knifings as a method to strike fear into the heart of an entire population. Now the entire world knows how it feels, but it all begins in Israel, where Islamic terrorists try out new tactics to
THERESA MAY today revealed a British-born man who had previously been probed by MI5 was the terrorist who killed three in a Islamic State-claimed attack yesterday. Following the horror scenes in Westminster yesterday afternoon, which left four dead - including the attacker - and 40 injured, Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists have published a claim of responsibility for the attack. The group´s propaganda outlet, the Amaq News agency, claimed the attacker was a "soldier of the Islamic State" who had responded to recent ISIS calls to target citizens in Western nations. The man mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in a car before
ISIS has today claimed responsibility for the Westminster attack which left four dead and dozens injured. The terror group said a ´soldier of the Islamic State´ carried out the atrocity in which a British-born man ploughed his car through crowds near Parliament yesterday afternoon. A statement by the ISIS news agency Amaq said: ´The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an Islamic State soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition.´ ISIS has frequently called on its supporters to carry out attacks against citizens of the
The Home Front Command has a contingency plan to evacuate hundreds of thousands of residents who live on the border with Lebanon, a senior IDF officer in the command told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday. Close to a million Israelis live in the North; an estimated quarter of a million could be evacuated in case a war breaks out with Hezbollah. “In the past we didn’t think of needing to evacuate whole communities, but now we understand that we will have to evacuate hundreds of thousands of people,” the senior officer said. Hezbollah’s technological abilities and battlefield experience have grown as it fights
THE terrorist attack in London has prompted New York city police to ramp up the security of British sites, in a bid to deter “copycat attacks”. Heavily armed officers, explosives and detecting dogs have been deployed in locations including the British Consulate and the British Mission to the United Nations in Manhattan, senior New York Police Department officials have confirmed. James Waters, the Police Department’s Counter-Terrorism Chief, said: "You´ll see a larger presence of the dogs at these locations, as well as (officers) armed with the long guns.” The assailant drove across Westminster Bridge ploughing into a crowd of people
Armed police have been involved in a raid at a residential property near to a curry house in Birmingham this evening, closing off part of the city for more than two hours. Dozens of officers, some response and some with weapons, were seen swooping an address near to the Bearwood part of the city this evening. Hagley Road was closed for a period of time and then reopened. BBC Newsnight has claimed the vehicle used in the London terror attacks could have been rented from the same road. The road is said to have closed at 11pm and reopened by 2am, with witnesses
Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,
Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car. Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
