PRESIDENT TRUMP’S JOB APPROVAL TRENDING UPWARD IN GALLUP …
According to the most recent Gallup poll, President Donald Trump’s job approval rating averaged 45% in Gallup polling last week, tying his personal high. Trump has been on a roll lately with positive jobs reports, low unemployment and a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in order to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. Trump’s current approval rating rose 3 percentage points since June 10.
President Donald Trump’s job approval rating averaged 45% in Gallup polling last week, tying his personal high. His previous 45% rating occurred in the first week after he was inaugurated as president.
Improved views of Trump last week may stem from his high-profile meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un held early in the week.
While high for Trump, his 45% job approval rating last week is below the historical average of 53% for all presidents in Gallup polling since 1945. Throughout his term, Trump’s job approval ratings have ranked well below those of other presidents at similar points in their presidencies.
Independents’ Job Approval Eclipses 40%
This past week saw an increase in approval among independents to 42% — up from 35% the prior week — which tied for the highest Trump has registered among this group to date. It is only the fourth week in Trump’s presidency in which 40% or more of independents have approved of the job he is doing.
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.
NBC/WSJ Poll: Terror Fears Cause Obama’s Poll Numbers to Fall as Americans Realize He is Weak on Terrorism
AFTER 7 YEARS AMERICANS FINALLY REALIZE OBAMA IS ALL TALK AND NO ACTION ON TERRORISM …
According to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, Barack Obama’s job approval rating is down to 43%, while 51% disapprove. Making matters worse for Obama, Democrats and Hillary Clinton is that seven-in-10 Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, the highest percentage here since Aug. 2014. Gee America, you are just figuring this out now?
Americans have been rattled by the recent terrorist act in San Bernardino, California and are suddenly realizing that Obama has been all talk and no action when it comes to terrorism. One might call him the JV Commander in chief. Well America, you have no one to blame but yourselves. Obama promised to transform America and he has transformed it into a less safe place thanks to his moronic and weak policies in dealing with terrorism. How’s that ISIS JV team working out for you Mr. President?
The recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., have vaulted terrorism and national security to become the American public’s top concern, and they’ve helped drive President Barack Obama’s job rating to 43 percent — its lowest level in more than a year, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
What’s more, seven-in-10 Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction — the highest percentage here since Aug. 2014.
And 71 percent say the shootings and random acts of violence that have taken place this year — from Charleston, S.C., Oregon and Colorado, to the terrorist shootings in San Bernardino, Calif. — are now are now a permanent part of American life.
“For most of 2015, the country’s mood, and thus the presidential election, was defined by anger and the unevenness of the economic recovery,” says Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates, which conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies. “Now that has abruptly changed to fear.”
That kind focus on security and terrorism “is a very different campaign than the one we thought we’d be running,” McInturff adds, referring to the 2016 presidential race.
US Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) wants a Congressional living wage …
You wonder why Congress has a 15% approval rating? Not only does Congress not do anything, only seem interested in maintaining their own power and when you count up the days work only about 1/2 a year … now US Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) wants a pay raise. Watch the VIDEO below of Hasting whining about his pay and saying that he thinks that Congress deserves a raise. Really? Congress makes $174,000 a year for working far less days than your average American. He thinks that this is not being paid properly. These people have helped destroy this country and now they want to be rewarded? This previously disgraced and impeached judge should be tossed out of office and make to work in the private sector, one he helped ruin. CONGRESS DOES NOT DESERVE A RAISE, THEY DESERVE TO BE THROWN OUT OF OFFICE.
Rep. Alcee L. Hastings made the politically tone-deaf case for raising salaries for members of Congress Monday, pointing to the high cost of living in the District of Columbia.
“Members deserve to be paid, staff deserves to be paid and the cost of living here is causing serious problems for people who are not wealthy to serve in this institution,” the Florida Democrat said at a Rules Committee meeting, referring to the average member’s $174,000 annual salary. “We aren’t being paid properly,” he later added.
The committee was considering the fiscal 2016 Legislative Branch appropriations bill, which sets the spending levels for Congress and legislative branch agencies. The bill includes a freeze on member pay, continuing one that has been in place since 2010 — and last year drew the ire of then-Rep. James P. Moran.
Pay raise? You know these people are getting monies that are not apart of their actual salary. They can write books, do speeches, etc. Sorry Alcee, HOW ABOUT YOU GET A REAL JOB IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR!!! PAY RAISE MY BUTT!!!
Maybe Hastings should go back to taking bribes?
CNN – State of the Union: Former White House Press Secretary & CNN Commentator Jay Carney says “It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats”
Former White House Press Secretary, now CNN commentator appeared on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ with Candy Crowley and stated, ”It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition.” The majority of the panel agreed that the GOP had the advantage in this upcoming 2014 midterm of taking control in the US Senate.
The Republicans need a net pick up of 6 seats in order to gain control. My person opinion is that because of the nature of the seats held by Democrats in red states being up for election and Obama’s poor job approval polling in those states, the GOP will most likely get to a +6, but it will not be a wave election. Too many establishment Republicans are nothing but Democrat light and the establishment still attacks its base as they run on ideas that are no part of the GOP platform.
“It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition,” Carney said. “The sixth year is always particularly bad for a president’s party. You couple that with the fact so many seats are defended by Democrats in red states where Mitt Romney did very well against the president, double-digits in most cases, and there’s no outcome in November that anybody could say would be great for Democrats, except for barely holding onto the Senate.”
Carney added that this by no means meant the GOP was in the clear. “The problem for Republicans if they win is Americans begin to think that ‘we hate Congress’ and it is now clear that one party is in control of Congress.”
