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.
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.
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.
- 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.
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.
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 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.
Larry Sabato predicted Clinton 322 – Trump 216 and a 50-50 Senate
