CNN Poll: 53% Say They Think Donald Trump Will Do a Very or 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.

Read full poll here.

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.

Skewed Polls Show that Hillary Clinton Won 2nd Debate … Trump Nailed Her on Email Scandal & Dusasterous Foreign Policy


What else would one expect after watching media debate bias, but more polling bias.

YouGov polls shows that Hillary barely beat Trump, however, one again there is a questionable skewing of the data. They claim the party affiliation was equal; however, 6% more of respondents voted for Obama rather than Romney in 2012. Hmm? It would appear that the second presidential debate was harder to call a winner.

According to YouGov’s post-debate poll, which interviewed 812 registered voters who watched the debate, Hillary Clinton won the debate against Donald Trump by 47% to 42%. Clinton narrowly won undecideds 44% to 41%. She was also considered “more Presidential” by a 57% to 31% margin. There was a gender gap, however: women thought Clinton won by 50-38%, while men thought Trump won by 46-43%.

In a so-called CNN scientific survey where the liberal network over-sampled Democrats to Republicans, Clinton won with 57%. There is a reason why they call CNN the Clinton News Network. There was some good news for the Republican nominee, 63% of those surveyed said Trump performed better than they expected.  Among those surveyed, 58% said they supported Clinton before the debate. Hmm, so the sampling started at 58& of Hillary supports. Are you kidding?

They will do anything to give Hillary a perceived advantage. Clinton should be ahead by 40 points with the MSM carrying her water, Trump having to debate her and the moderators and polling that is skewed to the Democrat.

CNN Poll: Pence Won VP Debate … Kaine was not Able to not Interrupt

Hillary’s choice for VP loses CNN poll that was stacked with more Democrats than Republicans …

Just how bad and annoying was Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Hillary Clinton’s choice for VP last night during the one and only Vice Presidential debate? As reported at The Hill, Kaine lost a CNN poll 48% to 42% to his GOP rival Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN). Making it worse for Clinton and Kaine, the Democrat VP lost in a poll that had many more Democrat respondents than Republicans.  Which means the poll should have been more like 55% to 35%. Mike Pence looked like the adult at the table as Democrat Kaine appeared to be nothing more than an annoying bully interrupting both Pence and the CBS moderator all night long. Think about that America, if something was ever to happen to Clinton, as her health ha been in question, this lunatic Tim Kaine could be your president. Meanwhile, Mike Pence was even, steady and presidential.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) was the winner of Tuesday’s vice presidential debate with Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), according to a CNN/ORC instant poll taken immediately after.

The poll found 48 percent saying Pence performed better and 42 percent saying they thought Kaine won.

Forty-three percent of respondents thought Kaine did worse than they expected. Pence’s performance exceeded 67 percent of viewers’ expectations.

CNN said slightly more Democrats were watching the debate than Republicans, which was reflected in the respondents.

CNN Poll: Donald Trump Leads Hillary Clinton 45% to 43% … Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7%, Jill Stein 2%


According to the most recent CNN poll of likely voters, Donald Trump has taken the lead over Hillary Clinton 45% to 43%.  In other important polling data, Libertarian Gary Johnson is at 7% among likely voters in this poll and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at just 2%. It appears Hillary Clinton’s lying and questionable ethical behavior as Secretary of State under Barack Obama, her emails and the incestuous relationship between the Clinton Foundation and her position as Sec. of State is coming home to roost. It would appear that Trump has come all the way back and gone ahead of Hillary Clinton. Independents give Trump an edge over Clinton by a 49% to 29% margin.

We have now hit post Labor Day politics and the time in which most Americans begin to pay attention to the presidential race. What does this mean? Everything that the liberal bias media has done and all the money that Hillary Clinton has spent has been for naught. It is an even race heading into the home stretch with Trump having the trending momentum. Hot Air makes a very important point about other polls in comparison, “look at the NBC Surveymonkey poll which also just dropped. They’ve still got Clinton with the same six point lead she enjoyed one week earlier, but NBC is still polling registered voters.” Look for this poll to drip significantly the next go around toward Trump.


Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton start the race to November 8 on essentially even ground, with Trump edging Clinton by a scant two points among likely voters, and the contest sparking sharp divisions along demographic lines in a new CNN/ORC Poll.

Trump tops Clinton 45% to 43% in the new survey, with Libertarian Gary Johnson standing at 7% among likely voters in this poll and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at just 2%.

The topsy-turvy campaign for the presidency has seen both Clinton and Trump holding a significant lead at some point in the last two months, though Clinton has topped Trump more often than not. Most recently, Clinton’s convention propelled her to an 8-point lead among registered voters in an early-August CNN/ORC Poll. Clinton’s lead has largely evaporated despite a challenging month for Trump, which saw an overhaul of his campaign staff, announcements of support for Clinton from several high-profile Republicans and criticism of his campaign strategy. But most voters say they still expect to see Clinton prevail in November, and 59% think she will be the one to get to 270 electoral votes vs. 34% who think Trump has the better shot at winning.

Among those likely to turn out in the fall, both candidates have secured about the same share of their own partisans (92% of Democrats back Clinton, 90% of Republicans are behind Trump) but independents give Trump an edge, 49% say they’d vote for him while just 29% of independent voters back Clinton. Another 16% back Johnson, 6% Stein.

CNN/ORC Poll: Donald Trump Gets RNC Bouce, Trump Leads Hillary 44% to 39% in a Four-Way Matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) & Jill Stein (3%)

Trump gets Republican National Convention Bounce

One would have thought in a polarized America that the days of convention bounced were over. Well, not so fast. According to the most recent CNN/ORC poll, Donald Trump now leads Hillary Clinton 44% to 39% in a four way natch up. That’s a 6 point bounce from Cleveland. Trump has taken a commanding lead with independents and the CNN poll found that Hillary Clinton is struggling with perceptions she is dishonest and untrustworthy as 68% said she is not honest or trustworthy. The latest DNC email scandal will only increase that perception.

CNN poll_bounce

Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.

There hasn’t been a significant post-convention bounce in CNN’s polling since 2000. That year Al Gore and George W. Bush both boosted their numbers by an identical 8 points post-convention before ultimately battling all the way to the Supreme Court.

The new findings mark Trump’s best showing in a CNN/ORC Poll against Clinton since September 2015. Trump’s new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that Trump’s convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41% were dissuaded. Pre-convention, independents split 34% Clinton to 31% Trump, with sizable numbers behind Johnson (22%) and Stein (10%). Now, 46% say they back Trump, 28% Clinton, 15% Johnson and 4% Stein.
