Politico/Morning Consult Poll: 67% Give Favorable View of Donald Trump’s Carrier Deal to Save Nearly 1000 American Jobs from Moving to Mexico
THIS SHOULD COME AS A NO DAH POLL, BUT SADLY THERE ARE THOSE WHO DISAGREE WITH SAVING AMERICAN JOBS ..
A recent Politico/Morning Consult poll shows that president-elect Donald Trump is getting very high marks for his negotiating with Carrier to save nearly 1000 American jobs from being sent to Mexico. 67% polled had a favorable onion of the action, which includes 87% of self-identified Republicans, 54% of independents and even 40% of Democrats. While many on the Left whine about the deal and some on the right in the “never Trump” crowd, an overwhelming majority approve. Saving jobs is always a good thing, especially with the manner is how this was done. With all due respect to Sarah Palin and those on the right, this was not crony capitalism. Carrier keeps some 800 jobs in Indiana that had been slated to go to Mexico in return for $7 million in state financial incentives. $7 million? That’s a piddence in the grand scope of things. Carrier looked to save $70-80 million with the move to Mexico. They did this deal because they know there is going to be a business man in the White House who is going to make America great again for business.
Donald Trump’s first major action as president-elect — the deal he and Vice President-elect Mike Pence struck last week with Carrier Corp. — is earning high marks from American voters, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll shows.
Voters surveyed overwhelmingly view Trump’s negotiations with Carrier — which resulted in about 1,000 manufacturing jobs at the heating, ventilation and air conditioning company remaining in Indiana rather than moving to Mexico — as an appropriate use of presidential prerogative. And a majority of voters say the Carrier deal gives them a more favorable view of Trump, though his overall favorability ratings were virtually unchanged from mid-November.
While some conservatives and conservative groups — including The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board and former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin — have decried the Carrier deal as “crony capitalism,” the Politico/Morning Consult poll shows it’s a political winner for Trump. Sixty percent of voters say Carrier’s decision to keep some manufacturing jobs in Indiana, where Pence is still serving as governor, gives them a more favorable view of Trump. That includes not only 87 percent of self-identified Republicans, but also 54 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats.
Only 9 percent say it makes them view Trump less favorably, while 22 percent say it doesn’t have an impact either way.
At some point, some of you are going to have to stop whining about every thing this man does. I, especially mean those of you on the right. Its getting old and you sould like the Left. I am all for capitalism and free markets, but do not begin to tell me that this was a bad deal.
Barack Obama Eating Crow Over Donald Trump Carrier Deal … Obama Previously Mocked Trump, “Well, how — what — how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have?” (VIDEO)
AMERICA, THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DO NOTHING FAILURE PRESIDENT AND ONE THAT DOES WHAT HE SAYS …
Barack Obama and Democrats are eating some major league crow after president-elect Donald Trump came true on his election promise to help keep Carrier and nearly one thousand American jobs from going to Mexico. FLASHBACK … it was not that long ago that Obama was asked about, then GOP presidential candidate Trump, the promise to help Carrier workers keep their jobs at a Town Hall meeting. Obama was quick to be sarcastic and mock Trump. Guess what Obama, Trump does have a magic wand after all. Its called knowing business and the art of the deal. Obama has nothing but egg on his face as Trump came through on his promise. This is my Obama was an epic failure and Trump is already a success.
“ … when somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back, well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do?”
“There’s — there’s no answer to it,” Obama said.
“He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, how — what — how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually, the answer is he doesn’t have an answer,” he continued.
Now we have Democrats whining that jobs were saved over a $7 million tax incentive. Seriously, $7 million? After Obama wasted billions of dollars on a BS stimulus plan? In the grand scheme of things, $7 million to save 1000 jobs is quite an accomplishment. See Obama’s failed porkulous plan and his cash give aways to Solyndra and the other failed green energy companies to see what a bad deal looks like. Keep hating on deals like this Democrats, the American workers, many of these folks union employees, are very thankful to Trump and will vote for him again. Unlike how Obama did nothing and allowed these companies and the jobs to leave for third world countries. Note to Democrats, this is what Making America Great Again looks like.
A NOTE TO MSM AND OBAMA … HOW CAN SAVING JOBS FOR AMERICAN WORKERS BE A BAD THING?
President-elect Donald Trump has not even taken the oath of office yet and he has delivered on campaign promises (video). Not only has he saved Ford workers jobs, an act that went under-reported bt the MSM, he has also now saved 1000′s of jobs for American workers that were slated to move to Mexico by Carrier. Donald Trump and Mike Pence are supposed to travel to the Carrier plant and meet with the workers. This is a huge boost to the incoming president-elect’s presidency as he shows not only can he talk the talk, but he also delivers.
This is called a good start America!!!
This is how you gain credibility … doing what you say and promise
Donald Trump staked his credibility as a negotiator — the underpinning of his grand entrance to politics — on a very specific claim.
He wouldn’t just stop the trend of globalization and outsourcing. He’d convince Carrier — an Indianapolis-based air-conditioning manufacturer — to abandon its plans to eliminate more than 2,000 Hoosier jobs and shift its production to Mexico.
Well before even taking office, he’s delivered — Tuesday night the company announced it would keep about 1,000 of those jobs in Indiana.
A note to the MSM and to Democrats, the people who’s jobs were saved and those who will have their jobs saved in the future do not care how Trump got this deal done. They care that they have a job, they care they can feed their family, they care they can put gifts under the Christmas tree for their children and they care they will not be unemployed. DON’T YOU PEOPLE GET THIS? This is why Democrats, the Left, liberals and the MSM lost the last election. They do not connect, nor understand the American working people.
From Fox & Friends, take a good look at how real Americans feel about their job being saved, and they were a life-long Democrat
How sad, this is how a bitter and failure of a presidency reacts to success that they could not do in 8 years … they try and downplay the news
Pathetic May 2016 Jobs Report … Obama Economy Only Added 38,000 as Obama Touted the Economy is Great
WTF … 38,000 JOBS ADDED IN MAY … WAY TO GO BARACK!!!
The amazing economy that Barack Obama touted this past week in Indiana created a pathetic 38,000 jobs in May. And as the NY Post reports, it was even worse than that, if possible. 38,000 JOBS!!! This is a beyond unreal bad number as the experts predicted a modest gain of 150,000 jobs. OOPS! But do to the BS way the government calculates the unemployment rate, the unemployment rate fell to 4.7% from 5%. So for the uninformed, they think things are just grand. Even they they are unemployed and on welfare and food stamps. The fact of the matter is that the labor participation rate is at a record low, as a 94,708,000 Americans were not in the labor force in May, 664,000 more than in April. The labor force participation rate dropped two-tenths of a point to 62.6 percent.
The job market went ker-plop in May, which should send new college graduates to the beaches instead of gainful employment, and their tuition-paying parents to psychiatrists.
Let me get right to the bad news. And then I’ll give you even worse news, so you’d better pull up a beach chair.
The Labor Department reported on Friday that the nation’s economy added only 38,000 jobs in May.The experts expected a modest gain of 150,000 jobs, so the actual figure is like setting off a bomb at a gas station.
May’s gain was not only well below the consensus but much lower than the previous two months, whose figures were revised sharply downward. In total, there were actually 59,000 fewer new jobs in March and April than previously estimated.
But it gets even worse than that.
Of those 38,000 new jobs the government said were created in May, only 25,000 were in the private sector, which means that if it weren’t for the fact that governments somewhere found money to hire people, then growth would have been reduced by nearly a third.
When President Obama took office in January 2009, 80,529,000 Americans were not participating in the labor force; since then, 14,179,000 Americans have left the workforce — some of them retiring and some just quitting because they can’t find work.
“By almost every economic measure, America is better off than when I came here at the beginning of my presidency,” President Obama told the people of Elkhart, Indiana three days ago. “We cut unemployment in half, years before a lot of economists thought we would.”
The unemployment rate in May dropped to 4.7 percent, BLS reported, less than half of its Obama-era high of 10 percent in October 2009.
But the labor force participation rate has deteriorated over Obama’s two terms.
When Obama took office in January 2009, shortly before the recession ended, the labor force participation rate was 65.7 percent. The following month, it reached an Obama-era high of 65.8 percent, and then it began its seven-year downward spiral, hitting 62.4 percent in September 2015, its lowest point since 1977.
The 62.6 percent participation rate in May 2015 compares with 62.8 in April and 63.0 in March. (BLS noted that the rate has declined by 0.4 percentage point over the past two months, offsetting gains in the first quarter.)
In May, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nation’s civilian noninstitutional population, consisting of all people 16 or older who were not in the military or an institution, reached 253,174,000. Of those, 158,466,000 participated in the labor force by either holding a job or actively seeking one.
The 158,466,000 who participated in the labor force equaled 62.6 percent of the 253,174,000 civilian noninstitutional population.
I HAVE BEEN SAYING IT FOR QUITE A WHILE WITH THESE $15 MINIMUM WAGE WHINERS, DON’T ASK FOR THINGS, THEY MIGHT JUST COME TRUE …
Workers at McDonald’s and other fast food industries have been whining lately that they deserve a $15/hr minimum wage. Now it appears that if that happens, the human workers might get replaced by robots. It would seem that that at McDonald’s, a robot staffer is cheaper than a malcontent human one. I bet the robots can make change as well and have a better attitude. Who would have thought they were cheaper? Hmm, I did. For years I have been saying, the more folks whine about getting a “living wage” of $15 per hour, they more they would be replaced by machine.
A former McDonald’s CEO is warning that robots will take over jobs at the huge enterprise – because it’s cheaper than employing humans.
He said that buying highly skilled robotics is cheaper than employing people at the fast food restaurant.
The worrying forecast comes as he warns huge job losses are imminent, and that it’s ‘common sense’ to replace humans in the workplace.
This comes as a study into the future of human employment has predicted a surge in machine-led work such as robotic counsellors, body part makers and virtual lawyers.
The worrying research, by professor of management practice at London Business School, Lynda Gratton, and futurologist David A. Smith, suggests that humans will be replaced because robots are able to produce better results.
I think the exact words of warning to those complaining about wanting their pay to be doubled for doing a job that required little to no skill level was the following. By the way, minimum was meant to be a starter job, not your destination and to afford a home and children.
A note to the “Fight for 15? crowd … DON’T ASK FOR THINGS THEY MIGHT COME TRUE. If this BS is actually passed, all of you making $7.25 will most likely be fired and more competent people worthy of $15/hr will be taking your place. Or, if it were me I would automate the system and completely eliminate your position. How difficult would it be to replace order takers with kiosks both inside and outside to go? And sliding your credit or debit card into a machine to pay like at a gas station? Actually, I am surprised this has not been completely done already.
