Gallup Poll: Reaches Highest Level of Small Business Confidence in Decade…

The latest quarterly poll of small business owners shows an overall confidence index of +106, the highest level in a decade.  This 3rd quarter results is a full 11 points higher than the Quarter 2 confidence level that was also high.

This indicates growing optimism in the most important economic index for MAGAnomics, Main Street.  President Trump continues to focus economic policy away from Wall Street and toward Main Street, with removal of burdensome regulations and improvements to capital access and national economic interests.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Small-business owners’ optimism about their business situation has edged up in the past quarter to a new 10-year high. The Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index for the third quarter is at +106, up 11 points since Quarter 2 and the highest since +113 measured in the second quarter of 2007. Index scores between the first and third quarters of 2016 ranged between 64 and 68.

These results are based on July 10-14 interviewing with a random sample of small-business owners nationwide. Owners are asked to evaluate both their present business situation and expectations about their business going forward.

Small business owners are more positive about the future than about their current circumstances, a pattern that has generally been the case historically. But, the overall increase in the index this quarter is mainly the result of an uptick in present situation ratings, rather than expectations about the future. The present situation score rose from +36 in the second quarter to +45 in the third quarter, while the future expectations score this quarter remained essentially constant — +61 compared to +59 last quarter. Both of these measures are as high as they have been since 2007.  (read more)

      Folks, the Alabama primary on Tuesday, August 15th is truly Anti Establishment candidates (Pro Trump) versus Establishment candidate (Pro Mitch McConnell). The ramifications of the final results will send a massive tsunami throughout D.C. The top two candidates move on to a runoff in September. Mitch McConnell has gone all in on Luther Strange. Karl Rove’s PAC will spend anywhere from 6 to 8 million dollars on the race that ends next Tuesday. Luther Strange is a McConnell puppet.

      Mo Brooks and Roy Moore are anti Mitch McConnell candidates. Both have stated that if elected, they will not vote for Mitch McConnell to continue to be the GOP Leader in the Senate. McConnell is extremely pissed off that the RNC has refused to spend a single dollar on Luther Strange. Our President has sat this race out. He will not back any of the candidates. Mitch McConnell and his cronies will see that as a slap in Mitch’s face.

      Breitbart just came out with an article today showing the latest poll results. They don’t look that good for ole Luther. If Luther Strange fails to make the runoff with the financial backing of McConnell and his PAC, Establishment Republicans will realize that their jobs are all in extreme jeopardy because money and a splitter strategy don’t work in this day and age. You will see the Establishment put up their white flag and will begin to back the President to preserve their own political lives. It will seem awkward to outsiders but we at CTH will know why. No Election to date will have more importance than this one!

      From the article linked above:

      He has to protect incumbent Republican members, prevent rogue elements from infiltrating his caucus, and keep the president at bay. And all of these challenges are coming to a head right now.

      Having narrowly failed to pass the “skinny repeal,” the leader of the fractured majority can ill afford to lose a single ally. However, that’s just what could happen on Aug. 15, when a McConnell loyalist, Sen. Luther Strange, will try to fend off conservative challenges from Rep. Mo Brooks and former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore.

      Just as McConnell did in 2014, when he helped endangered incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran fend off a nasty and crazy primary challenge in Mississippi (a bizarre one that ultimately resulted in a suicide), he’s again going all-in on protecting his guy, with his Senate Leadership Fund pledging to spend upwards of $8 million to ensure Strange stays in the U.S. Senate.

      http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/08/07/exclusive-poll-mcconnell-backed-candidate-slumps-alabama-pro-trump-mo-brooks-surges-final-days/

      From the article linked above:

      About a week out from the all-important GOP primary for the U.S. Senate seat in Alabama vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Washington, DC, establishment candidate is slumping as two pro-President Trump conservatives surge. A new poll provided exclusively to Breitbart News by JMC Analytics, a Louisiana-based polling firm, shows Luther Strange tapering off in the polls as Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) surges behind him and former state Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore remains steady in first place.

      The poll shows Moore at 30 percent, Strange at 22 percent, and Brooks at 19 percent. Others combine for a total of 12 percent, while 17 percent are undecided. The poll of 500 Alabamians likely to vote in next Tuesday’s primary was conducted from August 5 to August 6—during the weekend—with a 95 percent confidence interval and a margin of error of 4.4 percent. Assuming these numbers are accurate, they show Brooks surging behind Strange inside the margin of error in the final days—a silent majority similar to the one that elected President Donald Trump—while Moore maintains a solid lead at the top.

      The top-two vote-getters in next Tuesday’s primary will head to a runoff in September, and if Alabamians send Strange—who was appointed into the seat under questionable circumstances—packing, it would send a major message to Washington, DC. The GOP establishment, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, has aligned behind Strange, running millions of dollars of falsified attack ads inaccurately accusing Brooks of being anti-Trump. The attack ads have backfired, poll shows.

      Both Brooks and Moore have condemned the phony ads from the Senate Leadership Fund in Alabama, which is run by anti-Trump Karl Rove acolyte Steven Law. Brooks was a supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the GOP primary for president, but then strongly backed Trump in the general election.

      What’s more, as pollster John Couvillon told Breitbart News when providing the poll, it would show that despite the incumbency he was provided when appointed into Sessions’ seat and the millions of dollars spent on his behalf, Strange’s lack of support of the Trump agenda has made it hard for him to connect to voters in Alabama.

      “Despite his incumbency and up to $8 million dollars being spent on his behalf (appointed) Senator Luther Strange is struggling to connect with GOP primary voters in Alabama,” Couvillon said in an email.

In the end the only thing that will change things is a massive demonstration by Trump supporters; coordinated phone call blitz, email blitz, and peaceful physical protest in Washington.

    • Yes. And here is something for the thread to muse upon.

      Did you know that JFK was more conservative than any Republican Neo-Con we have in government today, IMHO? My grandfather, who partially raised me, was a staunch Democrat. I was a young Republican, and then as an adult, attended every Lincoln Day celebration my local Republican party held until I got fed up with them in my 50s. Yet, my grandfather was much more conservative than I was in certain areas.

      Today, just like Bannon, Trump, Miller and many others, I am an American Civic Nationalist….. and guess what, we are neither Democrat, or Republican. In fact, I believe those 2 party days are over.

      So, the bottom line is this: What if all the Republicans get kicked out in 2018 and 2020? Do I care?

      Nope….I welcome this because I believe it will be easier to work with the Democrats than it is these self-serving Republicans! Trump is not going to change one iota because what you see with Trump is exactly what you will get.

      And have you seen the new platform that Chuckie the Clown released and that SD reported on a day or two ago? They are trying to climb on the Trump Train…..

      I say to hades with Ryan and McConnell…….Bring it.

        Emmanuel had not sold his home while in DC, they rented it while out of town.
        When it was decided he would be Chicago’s next mayor, Emmanuel presented his wife’s wedding dress, which had remained in the basement of the chicago home, to the favorable judge as evidence that he’d never truly left chicago

        The favorable judge ruled that the dress in the basement maintained Emmanuel’s residency – he was good to run for mayor – aaaaaaaaaand, the rest is history.

      Redtreesquirrel I am always the optimist! I actually think this will happen for multiple reasons.

      1) Three Democrats told Crying Chuck that they would not sign his pledge. The pledge has certain conditions that Democrats want in order to vote yes. Those three Democrats that refused are Joe Manchin of WV, Heidi Heitkamp of ND and Joe Donnelly of IN. This increases the number of possible Yes votes to 55 rather than 52. That allows us to lose five rather than two Yes votes.

      http://www.winknews.com/2017/08/01/senate-dems-spell-out-conditions-on-bipartisan-tax-reform/

      From the article linked above:

      In a letter to Republican leaders, including President Donald Trump, 45 of the 48 Senate Democratic caucus members said they won’t support any upcoming GOP effort to overhaul the tax system that delivers cuts to the top 1 percent or adds to the government’s $20 trillion debt.

      Three Democrats from states easily carried by President Donald Trump – Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota – did not sign the letter. Each of the three is up for re-election.

      2) Even the Uniparty Republicans realize they need at least one major victory in order to persevere their asses in 18′, 20′ and 22′ (speaking only about the Senate). The economy is booming. Our President is the single reason for that. There is a great chance that the third and fourth quarter GDP percentages may be 3.0% or higher. This raises the bar on them even further. Our President’s platform becomes completely unstoppable. He can destroy the Republican Senators at will. These RATS want to remain in power.

Thank God he has his own security that he has groomed over the years.

        He is not going down without a fight and neither are we. If they try something in the realm of impeachment over some BS charge like obstruction this nation is going to boil over. I think that was conveyed quite well in W. Virginia. The nature in which he needs to be removed in order to keep their precious infrastructure intact leaves them with much few options. They can’t afford to appear to be the ones stoking mob violence over a perjury charge. It will only gain him martyr status and their goals impossible.

      red trees there are so many ways to look at what’s going on. If as it appears to be the case the Republicans have quite a bit of money while the Dems are nearly broke then it would make no sense to continue to attack our President. People are fed up with the daily attacks and want to hear what the parties are going to do about Healthcare and Taxes. If people feel good about their own chances for The American Dream they will not want to see this President replaced. Perhaps its becoming obvious that Democrats are hurting their chances to win by being so negative about this country and its future. Trump’s rallies are drawing huge crowds because our side senses that he is being treated badly and the people who go to those rallies want to show their support.

      When we consider this and the fact that the Lawyers put in place by Mueller and have been strongly leaning toward the Dems are worried that they might be sued by Trump it seems that the side planning a coup haven’t thought out the ramifications of all this and could be greatly disappointed.

Helps explain why the investigators chosen are so close to the DNC/Clinton/GOPe.

        Just as the Russian scam was started in 2015, meaning those doing the setup were will aware ahead of time thinking Trump was not going to be stopped. They now must also be aware it is only a “matter” of time before the real criminal investigations start to unfold with a wide group including MSM’s and print outlets for crimes against the American electorate.

        Agreed here as well. We’ll have 8 years of Trump if you look through a Biblical perspective. However…and not sure where I saw this.. but a former Navy SEAL stated that if anyone would try to remove Trump that there would be a “massacre.” Think of it. Look what Trump has done with the VA so far and how much all military branches love him! Then look at the Special Forces and SEALS, and our national law enforcement agencies admiration of Trump! So we have 65 to 70 million voters FOR Trump at least (millions could be armed), and including Vets, existing military personnel, law enforcement, bikers for Trump and other groups. Good luck Deep State! A good site for detail is http://www.theduran.com. Site explains how Muellers efforts are weakening due to disheartened personnel because they have found virtually nothing negative to Trump campaign. Many agents with Mueller are taking out liability insurance with additional coverage above what their agency provides them! They are bulking up in case of lawsuits coming! Trump-MAGA!

        We are abundantly better off than before January, despite obstacles.

        Amen!

        Hillary is not President. And never will be.

        Jeb! is not President. And never will be.

        Donald Trump IS President. And will remain so for many, many years.

        Everything that has happened since Trump’s inauguration is gravy.

      Scientist, you keep posting this “game over” thing in various threads completely unrelated to the subject. I begin to question your motives.
      Not many people here are blind to what’s going on but the game is over when the game is over. Until then, the fight continues.

      Say “Scientist”, what is a “soft coup” anyway? I mean, “scientifically” speaking…..Oh wait, you must be that typing Parrot I heard about. Yeah, the one that listens to nothing but Cernovich self-hug videos, and then repeats verbatim on the keyboard !! Remarkable.

    I cannot believe how well the economy is doing. It is really firing up despite all the drag on things thanks to the Congress hoping to derail the President’s agenda.

    I am pleased to see Help Wanted signs again on occasion and empty commercial space filling up, houses selling, and my 401k statement brings a smile to my face instead of being thrown in a drawer, unopened.

    It may be a lot harder to take away our President than imagined if anyone is so foolish to try. Meanwhile, pray for our President’s safety and the success of his MAGA agenda.

    Folks this tells the TRUE story! Every BS approval poll is such a disgrace. We all know it here at CTH but the majority of Americans don’t. I am so happy that our President has been tweeting his numbers every single day for the past week. What makes these numbers from the Gallup poll so AWESOME is that it is based on the current reality for small business owners versus future expectations. That is not the norm when it comes to this poll.

    Folks we aren’t just winning but actually kicking ass and taking names! This is truly incredible! A gift from God!

    From the article linked above:

    Small business owners are more positive about the future than about their current circumstances, a pattern that has generally been the case historically. But, the overall increase in the index this quarter is mainly the result of an uptick in present situation ratings, rather than expectations about the future. The present situation score rose from +36 in the second quarter to +45 in the third quarter, while the future expectations score this quarter remained essentially constant — +61 compared to +59 last quarter. Both of these measures are as high as they have been since 2007.

    Breaking News:
    CNN say’s ignore this poll because they now have found proof positive that the Russian story is true and that an anonymous source saw Trump eating popcorn while receiving his directions from the Kremlin.

    McCain stated he opposed the skinny bill because it would never be law.

    Duh! First version of Obamacare was scuttled. Second version never became law as is.

    McConnell made a good observation, at least Hillary is not President after McCain scuttled the bill.

    Thing is, she might be next go around or someone similar.

    Soon, Gallup will be rigging these polls too. Like only taking samples from big coastal city business owners or heavily minority areas. This is how they skew the Pres. approval rating polls.

    • Marc,
      to be honest….I think they already have and have been doing far longer than we realize. I think this last presidential election proved that. While they had results that were different than other news source outlets, they pretty much were in line with those very news agencies who posted false polling data. Rassmusen is the same in my book.

  18. Expect the progressives to start talking down the economy like they did with both Bushes. They will try scare enough people to cause a recession. The articles have already started.

    These people are pure evil.

    I stand with Trump and Flepo — slaughter coming up in 2018. Trump gets Health, Tax Reform and Budget. The pressure for the GOPe incumbents to keep their jobs will be enormous as the months fly by. If Dems do not absolutely disintegrate after losing 10 more Senate seats, they just might have to fire the Commies, and get some AMERICANS in their leadership.

    Oh, and by the way — As the Monster MONSTER Vote rises again in 2018 and 2020, the average hayseed, flyover AMERICAN will be snickering at the “useless” geniuses that pretend to influence Trump and his TEAM from the comfort of their keyboards.

    All the more reason to investigate, indict, impeach. Trump’s success is their terror. The democrat party reviles success and wants to scrub the very notion of it from the memory banks of all Americans. Trump is a mortal threat to their empire of hopelessness and dependency.

    I still believe POTUS needs to take some action against the RINOS to make sure they understand who is boss. Like taking away their healthcare subsidies. And taking away insurance company reimbursements would toast congress and be the final nail in the Obamacare coffin. What will they do, pass a law to give it back to themselves while Obamacare sizzles on the spit? That’d go over well in ’18. They swamp would have to come to the table to replace it then as well.

    “Small-business owners’ optimism about their business situation has edged up in the past quarter to a new 10-year high. The Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index for the third quarter is at +106, up 11 points since Quarter 2 …”

    How in the hell is an 11 point gain characterized as “edged up?”

    I will be surprised Trump does not take away their health care subsidies (If he can). It would be one of the more popular things Trump has ever done. Why would anyone think our elected officials should get something better than what they force down our throats?
