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......
Jeremy Corbyn has a lower approval rating among Britons than Donald Trump, according to a poll. Just 17 per cent of the public believe the Labour leader is performing well, the research by GfK found. By contrast 18 per cent think the US president is doing a good job. There was a crumb of comfort in that his disapproval rating was marginally lower than Mr Trump´s, at 58 per cent to 60 per cent. But the result underlines the scale of the task Mr Corbyn faces in order to turn around Labour´s fortunes.
Sixty one per cent of French people believe Islam is incompatible with their society, according to a new poll. That figure had been falling sharply until the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January 2015, and has been steadily growing ever since, an Ipsos survey found. That is compared with six per cent of people who believe Catholicism is incompatible and 17 per cent who believe Judaism is incompatible. A further 79 per cent of French people supported banning headscarves on university campuses, while another 77 per cent want to see the burkini banned. France already has a nationwide law banning anyone from wearing a full-face
What can be done about Iran? In Israel, a dispute is reportedly raging between the IDF and the Mossad about the greatest threat facing Israel. IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot thinks that Hezbollah is the greatest threat facing Israel. Mossad Director Yossi Cohen thinks Iran’s nuclear program is the greatest danger facing the Jewish state. While the media highlight the two men’s disagreement, the underlying truth about their concerns has been ignored. Hezbollah and Iran’s nuclear program are two aspects of the same threat: the regime in Tehran. Hezbollah is a wholly owned subsidiary of the regime.
FEARS over Donald Trump´s presidency has gripped global markets amid signs a huge stock bubble is about to burst and wreak financial chaos. Britain´s top share index the FTSE 100 shed billions of pounds of value on Monday morning, to sit at its lowest level in almost a month after adding to last week´s losses. It follows overnight sell-offs in Asia, while US stock indices the Dow Jones and S&P 500 are also tipped to tumble when they open later today. The panic has been triggered by US lawmakers´ rejection of Mr Trump´s healthcare bill on Friday. Investors are now concerned the President
DONALD Trump allegedly handed over a £300billion bill to Angela Merkel for unpaid defence contributions to Nato. The billionaire is said to have instructed his aides to work out Germany’s debt to the organisation following their meeting earlier this month. With member countries pledging to contribute two per cent of their GDP to defence in 2014, something only a handful do, Mr Trump has been critical of those who he deems are not paying their fair share. The bill is said to take into account how much Germany underspent by since 2002, when Chancellor Merkel’s predecessor, Gerhard Schröder, pledged to
THE EUROPEAN Union “shafted” Ireland and will pay the price with a shock ‘Irexit’, a think tank has warned. Dublin-based Hibernia Forum said the Republic could leave the bloc as revenge for its treatment by Brussels during the financial crisis. Co-founder Keith Redmond said the country had been “quarantined” and forced to take on “toxic banking debt”. Mr Redmond, who is also a councillor on the Fingal County Council, told Express.co.uk other factors, such as a growing loss of sovereignty, could lead to an Irish EU exit. When asked whether euroscepticism was growing on the island, he said: “For sure.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday that the defeat of the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare was ´a victory for all Americans.´ The Democrat, who lost to President Donald Trump in the November 8 election, tweeted: ´Today was a victory for the 24,000,000 people at risk of losing their health insurance, for seniors, for families battling the quiet epidemic of addiction, for new moms and women everywhere.´ ´Most of all, it´s a victory for anyone who believes affordable health care is a human right.´ ´We cannot forget: This victory happened because people in every corner of our country committed their
Relatives of the Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood´s first wife have said he was a ´psychopath´ and they divorced after only three months of marriage. Masood married Muslim Farzana Malik in 2004 after his second release from jail, following his frenzied knife attack on scaffolder Danny Smith, 35, in Eastbourne. However he was ´controlling´ and ´violent´ towards her and she ended up fleeing to friends in Middlesbrough from their home in Crawley, West Sussex, to escape him. On her Facebook page ´Soul Searchers´, she describes Islamic fanaticism as ´nonsensical´, in a lengthy tirade which calls on her fellow Muslims to heed their true faith,
Don´t look now but a cyclone could be spinning off the Bahamas by Sunday. Yep, a tropical system two months before the official start of the hurricane season. Computer model runs and National Hurricane Center forecasters called Friday for the storm to develop cyclonic winds and travel out to sea to the northeast. But it could bring swells and surf to the South Carolina coast, meteorologist Shea Gibson of WeatherFlow said. More importantly, it has meteorologists shifting forward in their seats to begin actively watching for storms to develop in a year when unusually warm waters off South Carolina, as well as in
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
Former President Barack Obama´s journey to French Polynesia was undertaken so he could write his memoir. Obama arrived at a luxury resort frequented by Hollywood stars in mid-March, though it was unknown at the time what he was doing there. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Obama is writing his White House memoir during his extended stay at the eco-friendly resort in French Polynesia´s atoll of Tetiaroa. Bidding for the former president and first lady Michelle Obama´s book rights surpassed $60 million.
President Obama’s oldest daughter can’t control her temper like daddy taught her to. (Photos) Saturday, March 25, 2017, found Malia Obama, the 44th President’s oldest daughter, at the Parlor, an exclusive Soho club, for a 21-and-over event. Martina Markota was with Lucian Wintrich and was the first to make note of Malia Obama being there: (Tweet) The minor had been rubbing shoulders with other guests all night until she spotted the Gateway Pundit’s own White House correspondent Lucian Wintrich. She was quick to confront him: (Tweet) Multiple witnesses watched as Malia Obama, Obama’s oldest daughter, ran up to Wintrich with
With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "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. He later
Ted Koppel had some harsh words for Fox News host Sean Hannity this morning. In a CBS ´Sunday Morning´ segment, the veteran news journalist said he thinks Hannity, a Fox News commentator, is ´bad for America´. (Snip) Hannity then called Koppel ´cynical,´ which Koppel affirmed. Hannity asked: ´Do you think we´re bad for America? You think I´m bad for America?´ Koppel said ´yes´ and that ´in the long haul´ such ´influential´ talk shows as Hannity´s hurt the American people. Koppel added: ´You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts.´ Hannity said that Koppel´s rebuke
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
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. 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. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,
Barack Obama’s former press secretary is now a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, the network announced Monday. “Josh recently completed a ten-year run with President Obama, most recently serving as White House Press Secretary from 2014-2017,” NBC New President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin said in a joint statement. “A native of Kansas City, Josh graduated from Rice University with a degree in political science and policy studies. With his wealth of experience and insight, Josh will be a great addition to our roster of contributors and will be an asset for our two networks as
Mental genius Chelsea Clinton made a complete a** of herself once again this past weekend. Someone really needs to keep her away from the computers without supervision. Via Newsbusters— The Republican Party of Palm Beach County put President Lincoln in a #MAGA hat this year for its Lincoln Day Dinner. (Snip) An alarmed Chelsea Clinton, a graduate of Oxford University, asked her followers if the image was photoshopped! What a dunce. The responses to Chelsea’s tweets were EPIC! “No, this is the exact hat Lincoln was wearing when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. People forget that.” “Nope, Lincoln was wearing that exact hat at the Theater.” “Nope,
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Sunday that Democrats are ready to work with President Trump to fix Obamacare if Republicans abandon their drive to repeal the law. The New York Democrat made the offer in the wake of Friday’s decision by Mr. Trump and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan to pull the GOP bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act or ACA. The bill lacked enough Republican support to pass, including many defectors among conservatives. Democrats formed a united front against the effort. “We Democrats, provided our Republican colleagues drop [repeal and
The first cocktail party at Barack Obama’s new office last month was certainly more casual than any he had hosted in recent years. The wine bore a random assortment of labels, as if assembled potluck-style. The self-serve appetizers were set out in the narrow hallway. The host, tieless, eschewed formal remarks, as a few dozen of his old administration officials — Joe Biden and former chief of staff Denis McDonough, as well as more junior ones — mingled in a minimalist wood-paneled suite that could be mistaken for a boutique law firm. “It was a bit of a shock to
The Washington Post detailed the House GOP’s fight over the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan this week, rounding up the dramatic details of leadership’s fight to win support for the measure. 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. But they also show the fierce support
