Ya know why Trump has most of his rallies at night or on weekends? His supporters are at work otherwise. When do these geniuses conduct their poles, during work hours. Calling land line, or street questioners. GIGO.

#2 If all of his supporters have jobs then why do we need to revive our coal industry, start trade wars, etc?

Orange Agent isn't worried. His Russian buddies will get to work and he'll win in a landslide. He'll start a war or two just to help things along.

#3 | Posted by JOE, Probity a good idea in the long run. These industries that are critical for strategic power, steel and aluminum, you can not make steel without coal. Protecting them are in our interest. China has not behaved well and has blatantly stolen intellectual property and counterfeited goods, including drugs, chips and even nuts and bolts. That might be a problem if the specs call for super titanium bolt for use in a control surface on an air craft or the landing gear.

Yeah ok. China and Mexico stole all our jobs but Trump supporters are all at work. You'll never reconcile that.

#6 | Posted by JOE Actually manufacturing has eclipsed previous records. The threat facing China and Mexico is not tariffs, it is tech. What happens when a robot can make a shoe or sew a pair of jeans? Do it 24 and 7 faster than a human? What happens when individual parts can be printed instead of machined?

#6 Are you saying the manufacturing jobs aren't coming back and people need to retrain for the future economy like Hillary said?

Polls show the orange sloth losing against every major Democrat contender. There is no reason to elevate Biden, which the mass media is determined to do, since Biden is a diehard neoliberal just like Reagan and Thatcher. People want change. The last three Presidential election cycles have been won by the most credible threat to the status quo. Unfortunately the orange sloth and Obama have failed to deliver change of benefit to working people. They have been effective place holders for different constituencies that permits elites to continue their fleecing of Americans. Biden is the least likely ever to deliver meaningful change, which is why the mass media favors him.

Just as he does with the news media every day, he attacks the source of the report that makes him look bad, rather than taking even one second to look at himself. He wants his base to think the only reason people consider him a jerk is because of the fake news. And the base swallows it whole. They all live in a fact-averse world.

Never seen anything like it.

Lucky for Trump that Biden won't be his opponent. Warren is not going away.

In recent polls Pres Trump is just not getting the good news he craves...


Trump Has Gone Too Far on Immigration, Voters Say in Fox Poll
www.bloomberg.com

...Half of American voters say the Trump administration has gone too far on immigration enforcement, and optimism about the U.S. economy, while still high, has slipped over the past quarter as trade tensions ramp up, a Fox News poll shows.

The 50% who say enforcement of immigration laws has "gone too far" is more than double, 24%, those who say actions haven't gone far enough. About one in five say the measures are about right.

By a wide majority -- 73% to 24% -- Americans favor giving legal status to young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children, so-called Dreamers. Allocating more agents to the border was a more popular choice than imposing tariffs on Mexican imports or building a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.

On tariffs, nearly eight in 10 of those polled had concerns that things they buy will be more expensive. More voters say tariffs hurt rather than help the U.S. economy, with 45% saying they hurt and 33% saying they help.

A majority, 57%, said they were optimistic about the U.S. economy. While still positive, that's down from 63% in February and 66% in January 2017, around the time of President Donald Trump's inauguration....

Posted by jdmeth

She actually matched the final polling numbers, beating Trump by 2+%

If not for 77k votes in 3 states, Trump would not be in the WH.

(Figure on right end of each state is net approval):

Since Trump took office, his net approval in Pennsylvania has decreased by 17 percentage points. -13
Since Trump took office, his net approval in Michigan has decreased by 20 percentage points. -12
Since Trump took office, his net approval in Wisconsin has decreased by 19 percentage points. -13
Since Trump took office, his net approval in Iowa has decreased by 21 percentage points. -12

Only solid red states like Trump. He's barely ahead in Texas!

Trump's only +1-3 net approval in North Dakota, Texas, Georgia, Utah, Kansas, Indiana, Montana ...

America does not like Donald Trump, now that we've gotten a load of his narcissism, lack of empathy for anyone, incompetence, and inability to tell the truth.

I'll say it now.

If the Democrats nominate Biden he wins.

If they nominate any of the other candidates this election is a toss-up.

Fox News poll (Released yesterday):

Approve 45%
Disapprove 53%

If the 2020 election were held today would you vote for:

Biden 49%
Trump 39

And that 35% Trump base? (which includes all you right wing amoral BOZOs)

Do you think a politician can have low moral and ethical standards and still be a good leader?
Yes 35%
No_ 60%

how reliable of an answer do you expect to get on a question that is 100% subjective in the first place? "low moral and ethical standards"? WTF does that mean? ask 10 people and get 10 different answers.

Ya, not a tough question to answer. Yes or No. You think leaders should be moral and ethical or not.

The Deplorables answered Yes. They're perfectly fine with one of their own being a complete douchebag as long as he has an R after his name.

Situational ethics mean they have no core values when it really comes down to it.
