  • Why Are Trump's Approval Numbers Low? Ask The Haters

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 2/16/2017 | Staff
    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...

    They like me, they really like me! A poll released by the Pew Research Center on February 15 reveals that Americans' attitudes toward people of faith have improved in just three years – and that Jews and Catholics are especially well regarded by people of all faiths. Pew's survey of U.S. adults – titled “Americans Express Increasingly Warm Feelings Toward Religious Groups” – was conducted on January 9-23, 2017. The American Trends Panel's survey participants included both Republicans and Democrats, men and women, younger and older Americans. The respondents were asked to rate various religious groups on a “feeling thermometer,”...

    President Trump would beat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-.Mass) in a hypothetical presidential election matchup but would lose to a generic Democrat, a new poll out Wednesday showed. Trump would defeat Warren, a darling of the left-wing of the Democratic Party, 42%-36%, the latest Morning Consult / Politico poll showed. But Trump would lose to a "generic Democratic candidate" 43%-35%, indicating substantial vulnerability amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the relationship top Trump aides have had with Russian operatives....

    Japanese polling firms found solid support for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Florida this past weekend to spend time with his American counterpart, President Donald Trump, though far-left politicians condemned expanding U.S.-Japan ties. The newswire service Kyodo published a poll following Abe’s return to Japan finding that 70 percent of Japanese respondents were “satisfied” with Abe’s visit to the White House and Trump’s estate in Florida, Mar-a-Lago. The New York Times adds that the Kyodo poll found approval of Abe’s work as prime minister generally to be 62 percent, a slight uptick from a month earlier. The Japanese broadcaster...

    President Trump's shocking victory in November and the tumultuous beginning of his presidency have shattered many assumptions about American politics. For many liberals and progressives, the weeks since Donald Trump’s inauguration have been filled with soul-searching and even confusion about their place in American politics. Trump’s flurry of executive orders, coming in quick succession on matters ranging from federal employment and immigration to reorganizing the National Security Council, have driven deep division within the Democratic party. The reaction to Trump’s action have pitted pragmatic, center-left politicians against protesting activists forming “The Resistance.” Many Democratic disagreements with Trump’s executive orders are...

    President Trump is still popular in core Republican strongholds, even though he has suffered a dip in the national public opinion polls. Trump's approval rating is 45 percent, an underwater mark previously unseen for a president this early in his first term. But Trump's image and his policies are holding up just fine among voters in Republican districts and states key to the president's ability to drive his agenda through Congress, and his party's success in 2018.

    Most people thought the Falcons had beaten the Patriots. Including the leading newspaper in Boston. Via Field Yates of ESPN.com, an early edition of the Boston Globe declared victory for the Falcons with a headline that proclaimed: A Bitter End. Appearing under that was a photo of Falcons defensive back Robert Alford returning an interception from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to the end zone for a touchdown that put Atlanta ahead 21-0 in the first half. New England eventually would trail 28-3 in the third quarter. Inevitably a collector’s item, the erroneous conclusion proves the danger of declaring any sporting...

The trusting attitude towards Islam is revealed in the February 2017 poll follows 17 tumultuous years of attacks against Americans motivated or shaped by Islamic ideology throughout the United States—from the 9/11 atrocity to the Pulse nightclub attack in Florida committed by an observant, orthodox Muslim man from a Muslim family.

    President Donald Trump, who entered the White House with historically low approval ratings, continues to receive record high disapproval ratings compared to his predecessors. Two weeks into Trump’s presidency, a majority of people (53%) disapprove of how he is handling the job, while just 44% approve, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Friday. Those numbers reflect the highest disapproval rating for a newly elected president since such figures were first tracked, according to CNN. By comparison, former President Ronald Reagan’s initial approval rating of 51% was only slightly higher than Trump’s, but his disapproval rating (13%) was not nearly as...

Do you favor or oppose such a ban?” A majority, 52 percent, favored the move, while 43 percent opposed it, and six percent were unsure. Men strongly approved of the...

    It’s up against some stiff competition, but there’s a runaway front-runner in the “wrongest idea of 2016” derby. It’s the aphorism, once fashionable on the morning-talk show circuit, that the media mistakenly took Donald Trump “literally but not seriously,” when they should have taken him “seriously but not literally,” as Trump’s supporters did. If the idea is that the media should have taken Trump more seriously, then I’d emphatically agree. But it turns out that they probably ought to have taken him literally too. It’s been an exceptionally busy first 10 days in office for President Trump, culminating in an...

The Forum Poll™, a public opinion firm, released their numbers while Trudeau was visiting western Calgary.

Yet despite the media's fixation with polls, the press completely buried one of the more newsworthy poll findings — a Gallup report that came out last Friday, which took a final look at the President Obama's popularity over his eight years in office. That poll found that Obama's overall average approval rating was a dismal 47.9%. Only three presidents scored worse than Obama since Gallup started doing these surveys...

    In case you'd missed it last week, prior to the press shifting its collective attention to suddenly caring about crowd sizes again, there was a New Narrative a-brewin'. Namely, that Obamacare's popularity is suddenly on the rise, and that Republican efforts to uproot it have become a political liability. It's undoubtedly true that implementing a complex operation that again scrambles the healthcare status quo will be a challenging lift, especially with Democrats digging in their heels against any viable alternative proposal. Some of the power dynamics will be tricky, and will require unity of purpose and strong messaging from the GOP...

People tend to put their hopes and dreams into the idea of hope a new president represents, even if they did not vote for him. It's a reminder of our fundamental optimism as a people. Donald Trump, as we are reminded every day, is not “most presidents.” And, according to new numbers from Gallup, he never had anything close to a honeymoon period.

    The victory of Donald Trump at US presidential election demonstrates the weakness of "classical" sociology in the face of the Internet because Hillary Clinton was leading in most sociological polls ahead of the vote, Russian presidential advisor for developing Internet German Klimenko told Life Zvuk radio station.

That’s how we saw for the first time that old sociology turned out to be weaker that the internet, and Clinton lost," Klimenko said. Clinton’s defeat was due to the...

I like them both.'” The data from the Exit Polls conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool show Mr. Che to be correct – an extremely small portion of the voting public (only 2%) told our exit pollsters they had a favorable view of both. While most voters did have a favorable view of one of the two major candidates...
