CNN Poll: 53% Say They Think Donald Trump Will Do a Very or Fairly Good Job as President

MAJORITY OF AMERICANS THING TRUMP WILL DO A VERY/FAIRLY GOOD JOB AS PRESIDENT

According to the most recent CNN poll, even before president-elect Donald Trump as been sworn into office, 53% of Americans say that they think Trump will do a very or fairly good job as president, while 40% say he will not. Considering Donald Trump won the presidency in a landslide in the electoral college, but lost the national vote, 48% to 46.6%, this would mean that 5% of those who did not vote for Trump think he will do a good job as president. At least they are willing to give him a chance, unlike the liberal MSM and pouting liberals who still cannot cope with the fact they lost. Many on the Left cannot seem to be able to take Tom Hanks pearls of wisdom and hope. Take a look at the CNN poll below and see in comparison the blind faith that Americans gave Barack Obama when he came into office. Hey America, how did that “hopey-changey” stuff work out for you? Hmm … so well that Donald Trump president was born.

CNN poll Trump as President 112216

Two weeks after Election Day, most Americans say President-elect Donald Trump will ultimately do a good job as president, though fewer approve of the way he’s handled the transition so far, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

A narrow majority (53%), say they think Trump will do a very or fairly good job as president, and 40% say they have a lot of confidence in Trump to deal with the economy, a share that outpaces the percentage who had that much confidence in Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan ahead of their first inaugurations.

The fact of the matter is that many on the Left and the MSM cannot have a successful presidency other wise it means their doom, even though it benefits the United States and its citizens. A better US economy, safer from terrorism, energy independence, creation of real paying jobs, reduction in regulations, combating the flood of illegal immigration, school choice and employment empowerment zones for minorities … these are all great things that would benefit America, yet destroy the Democrat party for a lifetime.

MRC/YouGov Poll: 69% Think Media is Dishonest … 78% of Voters Say News Coverage of the Presidential Campaign was Bias

THE MEDIA HAS FINALLY BEEN EXPOSED TO BE BIAS, DISHONEST AND UNTRUSTWORTHY ...

One of the biggest losers of the 2016 presidential elections was the news media, from top to bottom. A recent MRC/YouGov poll showed that 69% of voters believe the media to be dishonest and untrustworthy, while another 78% stated that the new coverage of the presidential campaign was biased. Of those who believe the media was bias, nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%). Maybe one of the most telling and disastrous finding of this poll for the media was that 97% of voters said that they did not let the MSM affect or influence their vote. Can you say, the MSM is now irrelevant?

The Media Research Center (MRC) announces the findings of a new post-election poll on what actual voters thought about the media’s influence on the 2016 presidential race. The MRC/YouGov poll was conducted on November 9 and 10.

Key findings:

  • 7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
  • 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
  • Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
  • 8% of Trump voters said they would have voted for Clinton if they had believed what the media were saying about Trump.
  • 97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.

This should be a wake up call for the liberal media, but it is most likely not. They still appear to be spewing their liberal bias agenda in their news as pointed out by Legal Insurrection. However, one thing is for certain, the American voters rejected their bias and was able to see through the lies.

The Confrontation Between Megyn Kelly and Newt Gingrich Revisited … In Retrospect Newt was 100% Correct & Megyn Has Some Apologizing to Do

REMEMBER WHEN SNARK FILLED MEGYN KELLY SAID TO NEWT … YOU THINK HE IS GOING TO WIN PENNSYLVANIA?!?

We will be discussing the winners and losers of the 2016 elections in the near future, and there were many on both sides. One such loser of the presidential campaign cycle was Megyn Kelly. Remember the VIDEO below and the interview between Megyn and Newt Gingrich that turned into a free-for-all? Gingrich was amazed at the media bias that only cared about sex and not the treasure trove of WikiLeaks emails that shows Clinton, Democrat and MSM collusion ans scandal.

In the heated discussion know-it-all Megyn Kelly could not get her head around the fact that Newt Gingrich was suggesting that there were two alternate universes in play with the electorate in America. One, all the so-called independence pollsters and two, what they were seeing on the ground and their own internal Trump polling. Whether you like Newt or not, he is a brilliant mind and knows his stuff. He has experienced it, he reads, sees and breaths it. Megyn Kelly, not so much. She is fed her information by producers. I have to look back and watch this VIDEO as Megyn Kelly was 100% incorrect in all of her analysis, comments and opinions. She was so jaded in her opinion of Trump that she could never admit to the possibility. The one thing one first learns in the world of politics is you never say never.  Megyn Kelly acts all snarky and like she is the most intelligent person in the room with the discussion of whether Trump could win Pennsylvania. Because all the polls said he couldn’t, Megyn jumped on the band wagon. Guess what America, Donald Trump won the state of Pennsylvania and the keystone to his presidential victory.

I think Megyn owes Newt an apology and just curious .. how do you like your crow prepared?

Megyn Kelly transcripts: “The Kelly File,” October 25, 2016.

KELLY: So, I mean, with Cook and many other non-partisan Independent pollsters now saying that the Senate is likely lost to the Republicans, what does that say? I mean if Donald Trump loses this White House race and the Republicans lose the Senate, does that suggest that the Republicans nominated the wrong candidate at the top of their ticket?

GINGRICH: Well, look. The next two weeks are a contest of two parallel universes. I just listened to that report. First of all, I used to hang out with Charlie Cook when he would explain that Donald Trump was hopeless and would not get the nomination. I like Charlie. That doesn’t mean he’s infallible. But let’s take the report we just got. Republicans are actually outvoting Democrats in Florida, they’re outvoting Democrats in Pennsylvania, that’s unprecedented. They’ve cut the Democratic leads —  

KELLY: You predict a win in Pennsylvania.  

GINGRICH: I think they might.

KELLY: Really? You think Trump is going to win Pennsylvania? (post election added: Pennsylvania: Clinton 47.6%    Trump 48.8%)

GINGRICH: Look, all I can report you right now is they’re outvoting the Democrats in early voting which is also true in Florida which is unprecedented.

KELLY: But all of the polls in Pennsylvania have her winning.

GINGRICH: What?

KELLY: All of the polls in Pennsylvania have her ahead.

GINGRICH: I know. I just told you, we have two alternative universes right now. In Iowa, for example, the Democrats are 50,000 votes behind where they were with Barack Obama in turnout. The governor is very confident we’re going to carry Iowa which Obama carried last time. I think this carries through case after case like this. In Minnesota, we’re almost certainly going to win the Congressional seat — Duluth which is a very Democratic area but it deeply dislikes Hillary Clinton.

KELLY: But let me just ask you, let me just ask you because you say it’s two alternate universes.

GINGRICH: Yes.

KELLY: I mean, these are sort of small examples of how he might be ahead in early voting and so on. But I’m telling you that the Fox News Decision Desk just moved Iowa that you just mentioned, Indiana, second Congressional district in Maine, all of them moved left, moved more likely to vote for Hillary Clinton. And in fact, all of the moves that have been on this map over the past three weeks by Larry Sabato, by Cook, by the Fox News Decision Desk. These are nonpartisan outlets that are just trying to call the electoral scoreboard --

(Added post election: Iowa (6)    Clinton 42.2%    Trump 51.8% … good call Fox News)  

GINGRICH: Non-partisan outlets. Every outlet you described is part of the establishment.

KELLY: FOX News? Really? Are we? I don’t think so.

GINGRICH: Come on!

KELLY: And every state they’ve moved, they’ve moved it to the left, towards Hillary. And you tell me whether that’s all made up.

GINGRICH: No, I mean, there are two alternative universes. You have a poll which suggests that she’s going to get a Barack Obama turnout among African-Americans. I don’t think that’s going to happen. You have a Washington Post, ABC News poll where they took out eight percent of the vote because they didn’t like the way it voted. Look, I’ve been around long enough. I remember when the Detroit liberal newspaper on the Sunday before the election said John Angler would lose by 14 points. He won the governorship that year. I don’t take polls as seriously as people who have never run for office. I can tell you.

KELLY: But your candidate loves them and has touted them from the beginning. And he’s been behind in virtually every one, out of the last 40 polls that we’ve seen over the past month. That is the reality.

GINGRICH: If you want to assume the election is over, skip the next two weeks.

KELLY: I’m not assuming anything. I’m asking you whether you believe your candidate is behind based on these numbers and what it says about the down ballot races.

GINGRICH: I believe the odds are at least one in three and maybe better than that. But the difference in intensity and the difference in determination and the degree to which Hillary Clinton is clearly the most corrupt dishonest person ever nominated by a party. All mean that the odds are pretty good she’s not going to win. And I actually believe that. This is not just because I’m for Donald Trump. I actually believe the American people are sickened by this.

Larry Sabato Apologizes … Presidential pollsters Got it So Wrong (VIDEO)

LARRY SABATO NEEDS A NEW CRYSTAL BALL …

The morning after Donald Trump pulled off the presidential upset victory of a lifetime, pollster Larry Sabato apologizes for his total miss on the election and for all pollsters and pundits who got it wrong. Larry Sabato had predicted an electoral college won Clinton 322 – Trump 216 and a 50-50 Senate. The reality is when all votes are counted and states certify the vote, a landslide victory for Trump 306  and Clinton 232.

ELECTION DAY 2016 … With Many Polls & Pundits Saying Otherwise … Trump Does have a Plausible Path to 270 and Victory or What If a Tie?

TRUMP HAS A PATH TO VICTORY … CAN HE GET THERE TODAY, ELECTION DAY 2016

Even though many of the poll as seen at RCP have Hillary Clinton ahead in the national polls. The averaging of polls have Clinton ahead by 3.2%. However, national polls mean little to nothing, its about the states and enthusiasm.  Donald Trump does have a pathway to victory and its not that far-fetched. I am not going to lie, will it be easy, no. Is he the underdog right now, the answer is yes and maybe. Many polls are within the margin of error, which means they could go either way. One thing is for certain in a political season where there have been no certainties … no political pundits have been correct on Trump yet, why should they be now?

Here is the current RCP Map of the electoral college of states between Clinton and Trump with 203 for Clinton/Kaine, Toss Ups 171 and Trump/Pence with 164. 270 is the magical number. The toss up states are as follows”: Florida (29), Ohio (18), Michigan (16), Pennsylvania (20), New Hampshire (4), Maine CD2 (1), Maine (2), North Carolina (15), Virginia (13), Georgia (16), Colorado (9), Nevada (6), New Mexico (5), Arizona (11) and Iowa (6).

RCP 110716 electoral college map

Now check this out and see if this is not a plausible possibility of what could happen today? According to may of the average of polls, this is highly possible. If this happens, the race is 269 – 269, a tie!!! It is possible the election could be a tie and its not that far out of the realm of possibility.

We will put the following states in the Trump camp: Florida (29), Ohio (18), New Hampshire (4), North Carolina (15),  Georgia (16), Nevada (6), Arizona (11) and Iowa (6).

The following states go to Clinton: Michigan (16), Pennsylvania (20), Colorado (9), Maine CD2 (1), Maine (2), New Mexico (5), Virginia (13),

RCP my map

What happens if it is a tie, what is the Tiebreaker? In the event that neither candidate gets the majority of the vote, the House of Representatives would decide the president, Congress is still bound by the electoral vote.

According to Article II, Section 1, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution, “[t]he Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chose by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chose the President.”

So basically this means the following, if Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump each have 269 electoral votes, then the current House of Representatives must choose one of them. Because Republicans hold a majority in “current” Congress, Donald Trump would very likely be chosen. If neither candidate gets a majority of votes, then third-party candidates come into play, if they can earn electoral votes. The 12th Amendment subsequently limited Congress to choosing among the top three candidates.

But if we move the map by just one state race where in Maine CD2 (1) swings to Donald Trump, he wins 270 to 268. The point that I am trying to make is, its possible. Is there a pathway to victory for Trump, of course there is. Is there would for Hillary, yes there is as well and it is much easier. In a year in which the Chicago Cubs finally won a World Series and ended a 108-year wait, anything is possible. We will know early on as to how the races are going in New Hampshire, Maine, Georgia and Pennsylvania as to what the election day trend is, will America put up with another 4 years of Obama and a corrupt candidate like Hillary Clinton, or will Donald Trump shock the world?
