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.”
BARACK OBAMA, THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER!!!
According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.
- U.S. Economy added a pathetic 142,000 jobs in August, 2014
- The July payroll number was revised up from plus 209,000 jobs to plus 212,000 but June’s count was revised down from 298,000 jobs added to 267,000. Total employment gains those months were therefore 28,000 lower than what BLS originally reported.
- Black unemployment at 11.4%
- Labor Force; Participation Rate Matches 36-Year Low, 92,269,000 not in work force.
- IRS Scandal Continues … Benghazi-gate scandal continues.
- ISIS on the move creating a caliphate, murdering innocents and beheading two Americans with a muddled, dithering and weak response from Obama.
- Obama, a disastrous conclusion that ISIS was the Jayvee, turns out it was Obama who is the rank amateur.
- Putin on the move … China on the move … ISIS on the move … Iran’s nuclear capability on the move Thanks to a weak Ditherer in Chief and the world no longer fears the US because of Obama.
- Obamacare is to a costly joke.
- Afghanistan and Iraq all but lost after the loss of so many brave American military souls.
- Amnesty for illegals.
