HOW PATHETICALLY SAD AND UNINFORMED HAS AMERICA BECOME?
As reported at The Hill, according to a recent C-SPAN survey only 43% of likely U.S voters could name “A” Supreme Court Justice. Wow, not all of them, not a majority of them, not even two. What a sad state of affairs. It really makes one wonder just how uninformed of an electorate we rally have in this country that less than half could not name one justice. Making matters worse, probably more than that percentage could name the judges from the final tear of American Idol. Take a good looks below folks, these would be the Justices of the Supreme Court, including the late, great Antonin Gregory Scalia.
What makes matters even more puzzling is that although the majority of respondents were unable to identify a member of the court, 90% of all respondents indicated they felt the Supreme Court had a key impact on their daily life. Let’s understand this, you have no idea the names of the people who impact your lives? HEAVEN HELP US!!!
Only 43 percent of likely U.S. voters can name a Supreme Court justice, according to a C-SPAN survey released Sunday.
The survey comes as President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, began confirmation hearings on Monday.
According to the survey, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was named more than her fellow justices, with 16 percent of those surveyed giving her name.
Chief Justice John Roberts followed behind, at 12 percent, and Justice Clarence Thomas was named by 10 percent of people surveyed.
The numbers drop off precipitously from there, with just 3 percent naming Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan were named by 1 percent, while no one among the 1,032 likely voters surveyed named Justice Stephen Breyer, who was confirmed more than 20 years ago under President Clinton.
OH CANADA … SO YOU THINK ITS JUST THE USA THAT WANTS ILLEGALS DEPORTED, EH?
According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, nearly half of Canadians want to deport those individuals who have entered Canada illegally. Well how do you like that, Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as Americans, as 48% said they wanted illegals deported. I guess that makes Canadians bigoted too? It would seem that Canadians do not like those who come to their country without following the rules. Sound familiar?
Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.
A significant minority, four out of 10 respondents, said the border crossers could make Canada “less safe,” underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau’s Liberal government.
The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months is becoming a contentious issue in Canada.
Although there has been broad bipartisan support for high levels of legal immigration for decades in Canada, Trudeau is under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants.
FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMPS FAVORABILITY RATINGS ARE WAY UP!!!
According to new CNN/ORC poll, First lady Melania Trump’s favorability ratings are up 16 points from pre-inauguration ones. Imagine that? As people get to know her, see her conduct herself and speak, she is winning them over. Her popularity is soaring and will continue to rise as she further fits into the role as first lady and does an amazing job.
The more Americans learn about first lady Melania Trump, the more they like her.
Her favorability rating is up 16 points since her husband was sworn-in as President, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday in CNN’s COVER/LINE newsletter.
About 52% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Melania Trump, an increase from 36% pre-inauguration. In February 2016, the former model’s favorable rating was a paltry 24%, her unfavorable was 31% and 23% had never even heard of her. Now, just 3% say they don’t know who the first lady is, and her unfavorable rate has held steady at 32%.
Most of the recent uptick in favorable results are due to those undecided Americans, or those who had yet to form an opinion. Pre-inauguration, 23% had no opinion about the first lady, compared with 12% now.
If the rolls were reversed and the GOP gave a first lady such low ratings they would be called anti-woman.
CBS Poll: 76% of Viewers Nationwide Approved of President Trump’s Address to to Congress Speech (VIDEO)
THE MSM AND DEMOCRATS ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE AS THE JOINT OPPOSITION PARTIES TO TRUMP AND HIS MESSAGE ARE ALSO IN OPPOSITION TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …
First a CNN poll and now a CBS one, Americans nationwide who viewed President Donald Trump’s joint Address to Congress overwhelmingly approved of his speech. An amazing 76% of viewers stated they approved of his speech, while only 24% disapproved. While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” more importantly, about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”. No one expected Democrats to side with President Trump, as they have opposed all of his ideas, even the one’s they would normally agree with, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency. Democrats and the MSM find themselves on the wrong side of the American people as Trump called for unity and for Republicans and Democrats to work together to provide real healthcare reform for the American people.
Viewers nationwide strongly approved of President Trump’s speech Tuesday night, with many Democrats joining Republicans in calling it “presidential” and positive in tone. Republicans and Independents found it “unifying,” though Democrats were slower to come around on that measure.
The President gained support for his policy plans among viewers: Interviewed before and after the address, they came away from it more positive on his ideas for the economy, immigration, terrorism, crime and Obamacare.
As is often the case in addresses to Congress, those who watched were more likely to be from the president’s party – in this case, Republicans. And they described a president they felt was keeping campaign promises and offering an “inspiring” message.
While half of Democrats found the speech “divisive,” about one-third of them also said Mr. Trump was “specific” and “knowledgeable”; neither label drew a majority, but nonetheless sizeable numbers compared to the more negative reactions Democrats have had to other aspects of his presidency.
And viewers of all stripes described the speech as at least somewhat positive in tone.
Overall, most watchers approved of the speech. Republicans did tune in to watch it in much greater numbers than Democrats (as a president’s party typically does) which bolstered those approval numbers. Forty percent of Democrats at least somewhat approved; 18 percent strongly approved.
CNN/ORC Poll: 7 in 10 Speech-Watchers Say Trump Boosted Optimism & Policies Would Move Country in Right Direct and 57% Saying They Had a Very Positive Reaction to Trump’s Speech (VIDEO)
DON’T LOOK NOW DEMOCRATS, BUT PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP JUST HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, SO SAYS CNN …
RUT-ROH, Democrats and the liberal MSM find themselves in a pickle after President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress last night. It was a resounding success! According to a new CNN/ORC poll of speech-watchers stated that 57% of them said that they had a very positive reaction to President Trump’s speech and 7 in 10 said the speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country. Trump scored high marks on his economic proposed policies at 72%, 70% on terrorism and 64% with taxes. Don’t look now Democrats, but you have a major problem if you think you are going to just obstruct this president. That is not the will of the people. Of course CNN tried to down play Trump’s amazing CNN poll results, because that is what the bias MSM does, by stating that people who choose to watch a political speech such as this one tend to be more supportive of the speaker. Really, Trump supporters are watching CNN?
President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress received largely positive reviews from viewers, with 57% who tuned in saying they had a very positive reaction to the speech, according to a new CNN/ORC poll of speech-watchers.
Nearly 7-in-10 who watched said the President’s proposed policies would move the country in the right direction and almost two-thirds said the president has the right priorities for the country. Overall, about 7-in-10 said the speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country.
The survey, conducted among a group of Americans who said in interviews conducted before the speech that they planned to watch and agreed to be re-contacted, only reflects the views of those who watched the speech, not of all Americans.
On specific issues, Trump scored the highest marks for his proposed policies on the economy, with 72% saying those went in the right direction. Almost as many, 70%, said the same about his terrorism proposals. Slightly fewer, but still a majority, felt his policies on taxes (64%), immigration (62%) or health care (61%) were heading in the right direction.
Ideologically, about two-thirds saw Trump’s speech as about right, while roughly on-quarter (26%) pegged it as too conservative. Just 8% said it wasn’t conservative enough.
Let’s correct something that CNN some what under reported above in their story. They stated that 57% of Trump speech watchers were very positive, which is correct, but what they forget to head line is that another 21% were some what positive. This means that an astounding 78% of those who watched this speech came away with a positive message from the president that the MSM, including CNN have continually bashed and acted like they were the opposition party in their bias reporting.
And making matters even worse for liberals, Democrats and the MSM, the Trump momentum increased as the speech went on as President Donald J. Trump won over many that had pause for alarm prior to his speech. Prior to the speech, 58% thought his policies would move in the right direction and by the speeches end, that was up to 69%. WOW. Democrats best be very careful. Americans want America to be great again, they want well paying jobs, they want real affordable healthcare that they can use, they want better education and they want illegal immigration to stop. If Democrats are seen as being nothing more than an obstruction at every turn to a president, even on issues that are Democrat one’s, they will pay an even deeper price in the 2018 elections and will be in the wilderness for a generation.
