Why Are Trump´s Approval
Numbers Low? Ask The Haters

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 2/17/2017 7:03:54 AM

Polls: There several conflicting polls out about President Trump´s approval rating. But one thing is clear in all of them: The only reason his numbers are low is because Democrats despise him. The latest approval numbers come from the Pew Research Center, which found that Trump´s overall approval rating in his first month in office is just 39%. That´s far below every other president since Reagan. His approval rating was 55% at this point. Obama´s was 64%, Clinton´s 56%, Bush I´s 63% and Bush II´s 53%. Pew´s number is lower than the IBD/TIPP poll, which has Trump´s approval rating at

A 16 point difference between Rasmussen and Pew tells the whole story. What questions is Pew asking and to whom? Do you think he stopped beating his wife?

When only leftist progressives are polled of course Trump´s numbers will be in the tank.
If you polled the same group about Obama it would be 100% approval.

If Lucianne going to start allowing #fakenews, as well?
What, exactly, do we have to do to ignore polls as news? It´s nothing more than marketing to shape an opinion, as has been proven over and over again.

If Trump´s real numbers were low, you would see Paul Ryan grandstanding and snatching the party back. He´s hiding.

I polled everyone here in my house and it´s 100% approval for Donald Trump...and that´s all that matters. We won! He was elected. He´s leading, we´re winning.

The fact that the alt-left doesn´t like it isn´t "news"....it´s TREASON!

They lose with such "grace", don´t they?

I can´t understand why anyone would even go to the chore of doing polls now. Trump is already president and won´t be up for re-election for nearly 4yrs. And all of the caterwauling from the dims is going to force him out of office so why go to the trouble?

Economics: For those not in the know, this weekend marks the gala 60th anniversary of the formation of what eventually became the European Union. Celebrate while you can, because it might not make it to 61. The European Union will "celebrate" its 60th birthday officially on Saturday in a sad effort to make itself look still relevant. We don´t mean to be snide, but it has precious little to celebrate. Starting small, the 1957 Treaty of Rome created what was then called the European Economic Community from just six countries. It should have stayed small. From those modest beginnings, it has turned into

We know there are compelling arguments for a complete repeal of Obamacare, as senators such as Rand Paul have urged. We also know that President Trump is right to urge Congress to take half a loaf on reform for now, in what´s called Obamacare Lite, rather than nothing at all. But has anyone taken a look at the activities of the left, which favors a full preservation of the nightmarish Obamacare status quo? The ‘Next 48 hours will be all hands on deck,’ bellowed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, describing the left´s cavalcade of protests, phone banking, ads and this being the

Russia’s Putin Picks Le Pen to Rule France

MOSCOW — Russian interference in the American elections last year was downright subtle compared to what we’ve seen this week in the run-up to French presidential elections. The two-round vote on April 23 and May 7 could change politics, defense, and the economy in Europe more radically—and more in Russia’s favor—even than the chaos spawned by Donald Trump’s iffy triumph in the United States. And on Friday, Putin endorsed his candidate: far-right-wing, anti-European-Union, anti-NATO, anti-immigrant, anti-American, pro-Trump candidate Marine Le Pen. Of course, Putin said, “We don´t want to influence in any way the events going on [in France],” but his government received

House Republicans scrapped a vote on their health care replacement plan on Friday after defections from both the right and center that made it clear the bill would not pass. President Trump tried to spin the setback as a defeat for Democrats who wouldn´t cross the aisle to support the bill — despite not making any entreaties to the minority party. Trump — who is the first president to enter office without any political or legislative experience — did seem to admit there was a bit of a learning curve when it came to such a complex issue.

Democrats took a victory lap Friday after President Donald Trump requested that House Speaker Paul Ryan pull the Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act, effectively ending the party´s quest to replace what is known as "Obamacare." The GOP-backed bill, the American Health Care Act, did not have enough Republican votes to pass the House. An agreement could not be met between Trump and House leadership, and moderate and more conservative representatives on what the bill should contain. In a statement shortly after the bill was pulled, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said, "So much for the ´Art of the Deal,´

Health Reform: Friday´s decision to pull the American Health Care Act from the House floor because it lacked enough votes to pass was a culmination of months of bad decisions, poor planning, and terrible messaging by the GOP leadership in the House. This failure undermines not only the party´s credibility, but President Trump´s purported ability to "make great deals." Worse, it emboldens the left-wing "resistance." Back in early December, we warned in this space that the Republican´s ObamaCare repeal effort was "off to a bad start." That was when House Speaker Paul Ryan was talking up a "repeal and delay" plan that

One of the strangest turns in the story of Russia and the Trump campaign has been the recent outrage from Democrats over politicization of the investigation. This all centers on Chairman Devin Nunes, the Republican who is leading the House Intelligence Committee´s investigation. He was an adviser to the Trump presidential transition. The White House asked him last month to talk to a reporter to rebut news stories that alleged Trump associates had many contacts with Russian intelligence officers. On Wednesday, Nunes briefed the president about new information he had regarding dozens of widely disseminated intelligence reports on the Trump transition.

Rep. Louis Gohmert´s calls for a new investigation on the Russian ties of John Podesta may just shed light on why the former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman´s emails were hacked at all. Far from being an effort to take down Clinton, it looks as though Podesta may have been a pawn in a Kremlin power struggle. As there´s little political hay to be made from that, it´s not the most convenient "narrative" for Podesta. To hear Podesta and the rest of the Democrats tell it, Russians hacked the U.S. election and released his emails via Wikileaks because they were in cahoots

Domestic Spying: Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, says that the Obama administration surveilled Donald Trump´s transition aides and possibly Trump himself following November´s election. If true, it warrants a major investigation. "I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions the intelligence community ... collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition," Nunes told reporters. Nunes immediately came under intense criticism from congressional Democrats for his revelations. What´s both hilarious and sad is that these are the very same Democrats who have been nearly silent as a series of illegal leaks from the intelligence bureaucracy have made their

Supreme Court: After Judge Neil Gorsuch spent 20 hours demonstrating that he is abundantly qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice, Democrats announced plans to filibuster his nomination. Good luck with that. By all accounts, Gorsuch put in a stellar performance in his confirmation hearing. Even the New York Times conceded that "if Democrats harbored any hope of raising doubts about Judge Gorsuch among Republicans, they came nowhere close." But as soon as the hearing ended, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that he was going to filibuster the nomination anyway. Gorsuch, Schumer said, "was groomed by the Federalist Society and has shown

"Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members.

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said.

At one point, the paper said, House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) got down on one knee to plead with Rep. Don Young of Alaska – the longest-serving Republican in Congress -- to support the bill. (He was unsuccessful.) The moments highlighted by the Post during the Republican conference negotiations show what a tough battle Ryan and his deputies faced in whipping the vote.

As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states. Determining what exactly happened is one of the most pressing problems facing
