THE POLITICAL RHETORIC IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL …
As per s CBS News poll, an overwhelming number of Americans believe the political debate in America is becoming increasing uncivil. Well, maybe that is because it is. But then again, hasn’t it been uncivil for quite some time? However, since Donald Trump has become president, the LEFT has completely become unhinged and their so-called leaders have said some shameful and hateful things. Last week we were witness to a far-Left individual who volunteered on the Bernie Sanders campaign attempt a mass assassination of Republicans. Sadly, Americans who are polled only seem to be creatures of the moment as reported at the Politico, a majority approve of Congress’ handling of shooting. Wake up America, talk is cheap. One week later, Democrats are back to their old ways. What is ironic is that 85% of Democrats polled said that the current tone if political debate is encouraging violence and yet it is that that are causing the violence.
Members of Congress are getting positive ratings for the way they responded to the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, last week. President Trump gets slightly lower — though still net positive — evaluations for his response to the attack, partly because Democrats are less likely to approve of his handling than of Congress’. Fifty-three percent of Americans approved of Congress’ response, and 29 percent disapproved, while 46 percent approved of President Trump’s response, and 36 percent disapproved.
And while Congress and many observers called for a more civil tone to political debate in the wake of the events, Americans of all political leanings overwhelmingly say that the tone and level of civility in our political debates has been getting worse in recent years.
These views are largely the same across ideologies, too, as about two-thirds of liberals, conservatives and even more moderates feel things have gotten worse.
Seriously America, take a good hard look to who is promoting and causing the violence.
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.
