And We Haven’ Even Got to The Trial Part Yet…The Chumph’s Approval Number Tank To a New Low

We haven’t even go to the part where one or more Chumph collaborators and fellow traitors has gone down yet!

I can’t think of any President who has been on the wrong side of so many issues, and who has created issues de jour to be on the wrong side of so consistently.

Trump’s Approval Rating Drops to Lowest Level Yet in New NBC News/WSJ Poll

 President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has declined to the lowest point of his presidency, and nearly half of voters want their vote in the 2018 midterms to be a message for more Democrats in Congress to check Trump and congressional Republicans, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Thirty eight percent of Americans say they approve of Trump’s job performance — down five points since September — while 58 percent disapprove.

Trump’s previous low in approval in the national NBC/WSJ poll was 39 percent back in May.

Trump Job Approval, Oct. 2017

“This is his worst showing of his young presidency so far,” said Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff and his team at Public Opinion Strategies.

The drop for Trump has come from independents (who shifted from 41 percent approval in September to 34 percent now), whites (who went from 51 percent to 47 percent) and whites without a college degree (from 58 percent to 51 percent).

“Are we starting to see the fraying of the Trump base … after this week of [Republican] infighting?” Yang asked.

Trump’s job approval rating of 38 percent is the lowest in modern times for a president at this stage of his presidency. The NBC/WSJ poll had George W. Bush at 88 percent, Barack Obama at 51 percent and Bill Clinton at 47 percent in the fall of their first year as president.

In this new survey, Trump also has seen a decline in his personal rating, with 36 percent viewing him positively and 54 percent negatively.

Back in September — when the political headlines were focused more on the president’s handling of the hurricanes that hit Texas and Florida, as well as Trump’s spending deal with congressional Democrats — his score was 39 percent positive, 49 percent negative.

But this current poll, conducted October 23-26, comes on the heels of a tumultuous two weeks in American politics, which included:

  • Trump charging that his predecessors didn’t make calls to the families of fallen U.S. soldiers;
  • Trump upsetting the family and friends of Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in Niger, by allegedly telling them that Johnson “must’ve known what he signed up for”;
  • Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., criticizing their party’s own president.

Additionally, the NBC/WSJ poll measures some of Trump’s recent actions over the past couple of months. The most popular: By a 48 percent to 27 percent margin, Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

And by a 42 percent-to-37 percent margin, they give a thumbs-up to the president’s handling of the economy.

Trump approval rating, Oct. 2017

But Trump is underwater on almost every other issue. Just 35 percent approve of his handling of his role as commander in chief; 34 percent approve of his handling of North Korea; 33 percent approve of his handling of the mass shooting in Las Vegas; and 30 percent approve of Trump’s handling of NFL players protesting during the National Anthem.

At the bottom: 29 percent agree with his handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico; 27 percent approve of his handling of health care; and 24 percent approve of his handling of the Iran nuclear deal…

And there is no bottom in sight!

Worst Approval Rating in History – The Chumph

How much does America hate the Chumph?

Poll: 70 percent say Trump acts unpresidential

President Donald Trump’s behavior as commander-in-chief has unnerved respondents to a Washington Post/ABC News poll, 70 percent of which said he has acted in an unpresidential manner since assuming office last January.

Trump’s overall approval rating in the poll, portions of which were first releasedSunday, dipped to 36 percent, a low-water mark for any president at this early stage of an administration.

But the president fared even worse when respondents were asked about his personal behavior: In addition to the 70 percent who said Trump has been unpresidential since moving into the White House, 68 percent said they do not see him as a positive role model and 56 percent said his conduct is “damaging to the presidency overall.”

Fifty-seven percent of respondents said that the more they hear about the president, the less they like him.

Trump’s Twitter habit earned an especially strong rebuke from those polled, with 67 percent responding that they disapprove of his use of the social media platform. Fifty-two percent said Trump’s Twitter usage was “dangerous,” while 65 percent said it was “insulting” and 68 percent said it was “inappropriate.” Other respondents used more positive word-associations, including 41 percent who said the president’s tweets were “interesting” and 21 percent who called them “refreshing.”

Among Republicans, 38 percent of those polled said Trump’s conduct has been unpresidential, a view shared by 48 percent of white evangelical protestants reached by the poll and 55 percent of white men without a college degree who responded to it.

Illigitimate – 83% of Black People, 76% of Hispanics, 79% of Other Nonwhites…Find Trump Dispicable

And that doesn’t even get into the LGBT community.

The ONLY group in America which rates the Chumph positively (by a very small margin) is white folks.

Making him the White People’s President…No one else’s.

The most despised “president” in history.

Illegitimate to the core.

Fascinating poll findings: Only white Americans like Trump

Trump will take office as the most unliked president in four decades, but there’s more to the story

Most of the attention given to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll has centered on the finding that Donald Trump will take office as the most unliked president of the last four decades, making him historically unpopular. The survey finds 54 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Trump, while 40 percent view him favorably. Just a day earlier, Gallupreleased almost identical numbers, with Trump’s unfavorable/favorable split at 55/40. Compared to Gallup’s November numbers, Trump’s favorables are on the decline since his election. CNN also found that Trump’s numbers have dropped by 6 points since he beat Hillary Clinton in November, and that his favorables are less than half those of incoming president Obama, which stood at 84 percent at around this time in 2009…

1. White people are the only group that have a favorable view of Trump at anything near 50 percent.

…It follows that just 17 percent of African Americans, 24 percent of Hispanics and 21 percent non-whites polled overall rated Trump favorably. In contrast, a whole 50 percent of whites polled think Trump is pretty cool…

2. Most Americans think Trump is unqualified to be president.

Fifty-two percent of respondents to the WaPo-ABC poll responded in the negative to the question, “Do you think Donald Trump is qualified to serve as president, or not?”…

4. Most Americans believe Russia hacked Democratic emails.

Most Americans, 65 percent, believe the 17 intelligence agencies that report Russia hacked the DNC. No one reason got a majority of votes, but the largest of respondents, 45 percent, believe the cyberespionage was undertaken to help Trump beat Hillary Clinton…

Military Supports Clinton 3-1 in Donations

In a reversal of a long standing difference, the active Military are donating near 3 – 1 in favor of Clinton.

Members of the military giving three times as much to Clinton as to Trump

Image result for veterans for clinton

Active and retired members of the military have been showing far more support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton than for her Republican rival, at least as measured by the checks they’ve written to her campaign.

Individuals who listed their employers as the U.S. Department of Defense or major branches of the military, or who say they’re retired from one of those, have contributed a total of $972,709 to both nominees so far this year. Clinton has claimed $771,471 of the contributions, or nearly 80 percent.

All major branches of the armed forces – including the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard – have favored Clinton to a much greater degree than GOP nominee Donald Trump. Members of the Army have contributed more than other branches of the service this cycle, giving a total of $191,712 to the two presidential hopefuls, 72 percent of which went to Clinton.

Meanwhile, it’s the Air Force that has given the largest portion of its contributions to Trump, though it still favors Clinton by a lot. Trump received 39 percent of the $110,711 given to the two candidates by people connected to the Air Force.

(Our analysis includes donors giving more than $200; candidates don’t have to provide identifying information about smaller donors to the public.)

If this seems surprising, consider this: Up until the primaries were over, the military favorite was Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), who received $374,600. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) came in a close third after Clinton.

“People assume the military leans Republican, but I think that has fundamentally changed in the 21st century,” retired Rear Adm. Jamie Barnett said.

Barnett, who has contributed $600 to Clinton campaign so far this cycle, also said that since a single person in the Oval Office can commit the country to war, those in uniform are certainly willing to put some money on the line to help elect a leader they believe has the right skill set. “The last thing we want to see is our men and women in uniform going into a war we don’t need” due to ego, lack of judgment or some other personal flaw, Barnett added.

The donation numbers are in stark contrast to the Military Times poll of preferences.

Retired members of the military seem particularly aghast at the thought of a Trump presidency, based on their contributions this cycle. Of the $135,392 that came from former service members so far, only 2 percent has gone to the brash businessman’s campaign.

Of course, history has shown that campaign contributions don’t necessarily reflect the results at the polls. Despite Obama’s victory in contributions from the military, 2012 Gallup data showed that veterans preferred Romney by 24 points over Obama.

Ramapo College Professor Jeremy Teigen, who studies military and politics, warned that while Clinton — and before her Obama — may be more popular with members of the military who donate to candidates, “that does not mirror the partisan voting tendencies of the military overall. We know, for instance, that the officer ranks trend substantially toward the GOP while the enlisted ranks trend less so but still toward Republicans.”

That Republican leaning has become more pronounced since the draft ended in the 1970s, Teigen said. “Now that the military is entirely self-selected, mostly male, and somewhat more likely to come from conservative social contexts, the men in the armed forces vote for Republican candidates and identify with the Republican Party more than not,” he said. (Teigen noted that less is known about the political leanings of women in the military.)

The New York Times reported on Thursday that veterans are turning to Trump, feeling abandoned by establishment politicians. Veterans featured in the story have called the nominee, “genuine,” and “a breath of fresh air.”

But University of Maryland Professor Emeritus David Segal said he’s seen more veterans against Trump than for him.

“Honestly, there’s not much enthusiasm for Clinton either, but veterans around me seem to have far less distaste for [Clinton] than Trump,” Segal said. “Trump does not value veterans, and in fact, insults families of veterans who have died in combat,” a reference to Trump’s tirades against the Khan family, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in July.

Segal, who directs the Center for Research on Military Organization, said there are also concerns among military members that Trump is likely to get the U.S. into another war. He said Clinton, though somewhat hawkish herself, has a good understanding of working diplomacy, having served as secretary of state,

Earlier this year, Trump showed strong support for the use of nuclear weapons during a television interview, saying, “Somebody hits us within ISIS, you wouldn’t fight back with a nuke?” He continued, “Then why are we making them? Why do we make them?”

The Chumph in Free Fall

The Chumph certainly did not do himself any favors in this last debate. He came off…again…as a High School bully.  That and his crude remarks are having a major impact.

Poll: Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 14 points nationally

Hillary Clinton has opened up a 14-percentage-point lead against Donald Trump nationally, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday.

The survey found that in a two-way race between the two nominees, Clinton leads Trump 52 percent to 38 percent, up from a 7-percentage-point lead last month.

In a four-way race involving third-party candidates, Clinton leads Trump by 11 percentage points — 46 percent to 35 percent, up from Clinton’s 6-percentage-point lead in last month’s poll.

A majority of voters, 52 percent, said the videotape of Trump making lewd comments about women in 2005 that surfaced Friday should be an issue in the campaign while 42 percent said it shouldn’t be an issue.

Fourteen percent said the videotapes should prompt House and Senate Republicans to call on Trump to drop out of the presidential race and 9 percent said those Republicans should drop their endorsements of Trump.

On the question of congressional preference, Democrats have a 7-percentage-point lead — 49 percent to 42 percent. According to NBC, that’s the Democrats’ biggest advantage since the same question was posed in Oct. 2013, amid the 16-day government shutdown.

The poll comes out on the heels of a House Republican Conference call Monday morning in which Speaker Paul Ryan told his members that he won’t defend Trump anymore and won’t campaign with him and will focus over the next 30 days on keeping the House majority, according to a Republican on the conference call.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is convening a separate conference call Monday, according to Politico.

Since the 11-year-old video of Trump surfaced Friday, 29 Republicans have called for Trump to drop out of the presidential race and 44 Republicans have condemned his remarks, according to a running count by CBS News.

The poll surveyed 500 registered voters between Oct. 8 and 9 with a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points and 4.6 percentage points for all likely voters.

How Much to Hispanics and Black Folks Despise the Chumph?

Hispanics and Black Folks have taken a real disliking to the Chumpf. I suspect Asians aren’t far behind, as well as Gay people, and women.

Here’s More Proof That Black And Latino Voters Really Don’t Like Donald Trump

It turns out antagonizing Americans of every stripe, as Donald Trump has done continually with his bombastic rhetoric, has actual consequences.

A Washington Post/ABC survey released Wednesday shows seven in 10 Americans view the presumptive GOP nominee unfavorably, up 10 points since he announced his candidacy for president. (Hillary Clinton reached a new high in the unfavorable stakes as well — 55 percent.)

Yet even more striking is Trump’s standing with people who are black and Latino — growing voting blocks whose support is crucial to cobbling together a winning coalition. A staggering 94 percent of black voters view the real estate mogul negatively, as do 89 percent of Latinos, despite his predictions that he will “win the Hispanic vote” in November.

It’s not hard to see why.

Trump wants to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and deport millions of undocumented immigrants. He’s gone on a racist tirade against a federal judge of Mexican heritage, and his outreach to Latinos entails posing for a picture on Cinco de Mayo with a taco salad bowl. He initially refused to disavow former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke, before later doing so. And he has significant backing from white supremacists, especially online, where they harass his critics with vile and racist attacks.

The reality TV personality has taken the 2012 GOP “autopsy” — a set of recommendations the Republican National Committee released meant to broaden the party to minorities — and completely blown it up. With five months to go until November, and no sign their presumptive nominee is willing to change his approach, it’s difficult to see whether the Republican Party can repair its already low standing with non-white voters.

The Manhattan businessman’s only play may be over-performing with whites and independents. Clinton’s unfavorable with 75 percent of white people, 73 percent of whites with no college degree and 63 percent of independent voters, according to the Post/ABC poll. However, current polls show Trump isn’t in a stronger position than Mitt Romney was in 2012 to pull in enough white voters to win.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar,rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Could be why several periodicals have begun saying the “L” word…

Now, I have problems with Clinton being too far to the right, and having too close ties with the big banks. However I believe she is a savvy enough leader, with a powerful style that she isn’t going to be stupid enough to hamstring her Administration, or Democrat majority Congress with the dumb arsed self defeating “bipartisanship”, and spineless timidity in speaking out about issues. She will take a sharp knife to the sort of BS extremist Republicans have been pulling and getting away with from day 1.

HILLARY CLINTON COULD BE HEADED FOR A LANDSLIDE

A slate of new polls shows Clinton on pace to decimate Trump.
After several weeks of polls that showed Hillary Clinton only a few points ahead of Trump, and two that put her lead within the margin of error, Bloomberg on Tuesday released a pollgiving the former secretary of state a whopping 12-point lead on Trump in a head-to-head matchup. A popular vote with results in that range would lead to an electoral landslide, too: according to a Frontloading HQ analysis, released Monday, Clinton destroys Trump in the electoral college, 358 to 180. Last week, an ABC poll showed her winning the national map with 262 to 191, assuming Trump takes all the Republican-leaning states.

Hillary Clinton Will Win by a Landslide Against Donald Trump

Americans want a president, not a bitterly divisive performer

Hillary Clinton will win by a landslide against Donald Trump. I expect her to win 46 states, and if I am wrong, it is equally likely she will win more than 46 states in November, rather than less…

Another huge advantage Clinton and Democrats possess is the mathematics of the electoral college. Usually Republicans have the advantage in midterm elections because they are likely to achieve a stronger turnout than Democrats, while Democrats have the advantage in presidential elections because their turnout will be higher and, even more, because the state-by-state breakdown of electoral college math gives Democrats the edge.

Because of the insulting and divisive style of the Trump campaign, the Democratic electoral advantage will be even greater than previous presidential elections. The prospect of a Trump presidency will galvanize Democratic voters to come out in huge numbers, generate a wave of anti-Trump Hispanic voters that could win key states for Democrats in both the presidential and senate elections and alienate and alarm many female, independent and younger voters…

Anything is possible in presidential politics, but things are shaping up to produce a Democratic landslide for Hillary Clinton similar to the landslide of Lyndon Johnson over Barry Goldwater in 1964.

Uncle Ben …Going Down

Th anticipated implosion of Uncle Ben Carson is accelerating…The rats, they are deserting the sinking ship.

Ben Carson campaign manager, communications director quit

Ben Carson campaign manager Barry Bennett and communications director Doug Watts have resigned.

Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, has struggled in the polls since October when he was rivaling Donald Trump for the lead in the Republican presidential race.

“Barry Bennett and I have resigned from the Carson campaign effective immediately,” Watts said in a statement. “We respect the candidate and we have enjoyed helping him go from far back in the field to top tier status.”

Watts added: “We are proud of our efforts for Dr Carson and we wish him and his campaign the best of luck.”

Carson’s campaign has raised more than $23 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, his campaign said Wednesday, although it would not say how much cash it has on hand.

The resignations were first reported by the Des Moines Register.
