Rasmussen Poll shows President Trump has a 46% approval rating today, with a 53% disapproval...

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_ ... rack_dec28

On the exact same day, during President Obama's first year, the statistics showed: 47% approved, and 52% disapproved, on "28-Dec-09"...

P.S. Notice, the statistics for President Obama on "29-Dec-09".

fivethirtyeight.com has it 41 - 53 once the results are adjusted for inherent variations. Too abstruse to f=go into here - read their website explanation here.

VIDEO: President Trump has record disapproval ratings

Poll results change with the time of day...

Let's face it, the media loved President Obama. He walked on water and could do no wrong. When he blooped and said something like, "America invented the automobile" they didn't bat an eyelash, BUT if President Trump uses a wrong word, they're all over him--for ever.

What terrible things do you think he's done in the last 342 days?

Quote:
...As December winds down, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to look back at what has been, by any measure, a historic year.

Nearly 1.7 million new jobs have been created, and the unemployment rate has fallen to 4.1 percent, the lowest rate in 17 years. The stock market reached a record high more than 60 times and closed above 24,000 for the first time in history.

We’ve rolled back twenty-two regulations for every one new regulation, saving taxpayers over $8 billion and liberating America’s economy from the grip of bloated government.

We’ve withdrawn from, or began renegotiating the trade deals that once threatened to destroy American industry and shipped our jobs around the world.

We finally set up our nation on a path to not only energy independence, but energy dominance. We approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, directed the EPA to end the job-killing war on coal, and upon the tax bill’s passage, will have opened up ANWR to responsible energy exploration.

The President has protected America’s communities. We’ve seen the lowest level of illegal border crossings on record. We ended the Obama administration’s dangerous catch-and-release policies, restoring law and order both on the border and in the interior. And we’ve designed and built eight wall prototypes for the border wall.

We’ve taken unprecedented steps to tackle America’s opioids epidemic by directing the declaration of a nationwide public health emergency.

And we’ve promoted peace through strength. Under the President’s leadership, ISIS has lost nearly all of its territory and its most important strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

We’ve restored old alliances, forged new ones, begun rebuilding our military, and made it clear to the world that there is no greater ally, no more fearsome adversary than the United States of America.

We’ve reshaped the American judiciary for generations. Justice Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court, and 22 judges have been confirmed, including a record-setting 12 circuit judges. We protected life by reinstating and expanding the Mexico City Policy that protects $9 billion in U.S.-taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions.

And this evening, hopefully upon passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the President will have delivered the most significant tax cut in the history of the nation and repealed the Obamacare individual mandate.

The President has delivered on promise after promise, issue after issue, time after time, and we’re just getting started...

Thankyou Stormy, my views exactly. I believe that some months ago, I requested a "Trump "only thread so those who were disinterested could avoid this man. Some fell on stony ground!

I started this thread to spare you the pain. :D You have no interest in this subject, right?

Happy New Year!

From another thread, Whipiquick wrote President Trump reminded him of Mussolini sometimes, which reminded me of something I saw on Sky News...

Peter Collett examines the tell-tale body language signs of some of the key personalities of 2017 including Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and Vladimir Putin.
Peter Collett was refreshingly polite.

P.S. This is a joke:

"Quarterly growth of the real GDP in the United States from 2011 to 2017"

https://www.statista.com/statistics/188 ... in-the-us/

According to Politifact, the first quarter can be credited to President Obama: 1.2%, but the rest of the year is given to the new President: 3.1% and (3.3 or) 3.2%. The 4th quarter should be well over 3%.

http://www.politifact.com/illinois/stat ... wth-obama/

The stock market is presently at "24,855.11", up "25.72% Year-to-Date"...

That's good news for most Americans who own 401(k) plans and stocks--like everyone I know. :D

Then the whole world should be happy about Trump's economic policies.

You could be in Vienna today enjoying dinner and a grand concert at the famous Schoenbrunn Imperial Palace. Oh the Joys of life if you want to lift your eyes from the gloom. :wave:

Sounds great!

We're having a ball here, with the usual sunshine and a high of 24°C/76°F. The bougainvillea and roses are in full bloom, and the very friendly hummingbirds are hovering around us (They love the nectar; it's 50-50) next to our divingpool, in the garden of our lovely 'detached' home, Dowlander, ah Downlander! :wave:

Excellent, live New Year's entertainment will be 5 blocks (5/8's of a mile) away. 'Oh, Happy Day!'

If only Winston Churchill had avoided all that unpleasantness back in the 1940's.

He could have been in the Caribbean enjoying the sun and the whiskey.

Instead, he dwealt on and brooded over the Axis powers.

What a killjoy, he was, wasn't he.

Remember, Canada...

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." ~ Winston Churchill

We're doing fine. So are Sweden, Denmark, Germany, etc.

The socialist countries are in fact leading the pack; socialism today is not like the socialism/communism of the 1930's.

We have good economic growth. We mix socialism with capitalism and entrepreneurship. We put an emphasis on education, especially STEM education. The result is a very high quality of life. We don't have to lie awake at night worrying about losing our house, if we get ill from cancer. We have some of the longest lifespans in the world.

What's not to like?

A recipe for mutton.

According to John A. Macdonald, the "special genius" of Canadian identity was that "it asks but one thing of its adherents: complete and total submission to the will of the state. Once that has been accepted, everything else Canadian follows." Pierre Trudeau largely agreed, saying that "To a Canadian, the only virtue is loyalty; the only sin, disobedience.

We've seen that post already, Major.

When was that...150 years ago now? Times change. I'm not my great-great-great-great grandfather.

Nor are you.

No, Pierre Trudeau was a contemporary of Ronald Reagan. You know, Pierre, the father of Justin, the substitute drama teacher--who is presently your Prime Minister.

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it.” ~ Ronald Reagan

How comes Toronto cop James Forcillo, pumps 8 bullets into Sammy Yetim, killing him, and yet only gets done for attempted murder.

I happen to agree with you, but wonder what does this have to do with President Trump (trois)?
