BREAKING: President Trump’s Latest Approval Rating…

(LINK)

“In the absence of a near-term recession trigger, current stretched equity valuations do yet not instill enough fear to change overall market direction.  Thus, the positive stock market momentum could be sustained in 2018, increasingly driven by earnings growth.”(link)

MAGAnomics Predicted

In essence, the Trump economic patriotism platform takes shape with the introduction of a few more key members for the domestic economy dream team.

mnuchin-1ross-1

If you have followed the Trump economic mindset from the beginning, you’ll know exactly what the purpose of each of these players are into the larger scope of domestic capital infusion. Remember, one of the essential elements Trump needs is to create the environment where the best play is domestic, ie. Main Street, investment.

To reverse three decades of economic outsourcing, the investment scales (best return) must tip from Wall Street (global investment) to Main Street (domestic investment), that’s where Mnuchin, Ross and Ricketts come into play. Economic patriotism is leveraged by steering capital investment much like well constructed levies can steer the flow of water. (read full outline)

    But where is Gallop coming up with this 62% disapproval? It looks so foolish when matched up with the economic indicators. People just don’t hate Presidents with good economic numbers. Not possible. The economy matters. If they think the economic numbers are fake then why was Obama popular with his numbers.

        Contrary to what Fle stated in a previous post, GALLUP numbers are NOT fake. And… if you ever look through their raw data, even if they slightly oversample DIMS, there’s a YUGE disapproval of POTUS. Again, I maintain its the result of the media painting POTUS as dumb, braggadocios, arrogant, dishonest, and draped in Russia, Russia, Russia criminality! (FALSE, FALSE, FALSE but we know the TRUTH!) Remember how many could not find A SINGLE ADULT that loved Obama, despite his 54% approval? The high approval occurred because the media painted pictures of Obama as a saint, hero, icon, Einstein etc. The identical scenario is happening in reverse now and unfortunately the low information voters don’t pay attention to facts–only the media’s sick and non-factual portrayal.

          Gallup got out of the business of polling the presidential election because their reputation is so bad! That is a fact! The same way their poll is complete BS! They are still using the 2012 Election model.

          From the article linked above:

          (Politico) – Gallup has been the country’s gold standard for horse-race election polling ever since its legendary founder, George Gallup, predicted Franklin Roosevelt’s landslide reelection in 1936.

          But after a bruising 2012 cycle, in which its polls were farther off than most of its competitors, Gallup told POLITICO it isn’t planning any polls for the presidential primary horse race this cycle. And, even following an internal probe into what went wrong last time around, Gallup won’t commit to tracking the general election next year.

          It’s a stunning move for an organization that built its reputation on predicting the winners of presidential elections. But it comes at a time of unusual tumult in the polling world. Other top-level brands like the nonprofit Pew Research Center have yet to poll the horse race, and still others have expressed concern about the accuracy of polling at a time when fewer people are reachable or willing to talk to pollsters.

          As stated in a previous post, No, Gallup numbers are not fake, just thoroughly cooked. Designer survey structured to get the designed results from the designated target sampling group. Real numbers, predetermined results. Don’t trust polls.

          That said, I also believe Trump’s approval to be below 50%, not based on his successes or failures, but on media influence and preexisting prejudice. However, being a true leader isn’t a popularity contest, it’s about results.

          a week ago so ago, I saw on The_Donald that Melania’s Christmas Decoration of the WH was trending #1 on YouTube.
          People who get their news from TV probably were not even aware that such coverage was available (YouTube offering was 27 minutes), yet this was #1 on YouTube. (it was)
          I am fond of pointing out that The_Donald, according to advertising calcs, has 6.5M followers, whereas a few wks ago, Nielsen had cnn at ab 900,000 in the 9PM slot.
          Its all rather relative.
          It does seem to me that concern for these vermin who after all, ALL say the same thing, yes, it is tiring…but they are self-immolating.

Whether it works or not matters not. All they have is lies and fraud. The real approval rating of President Trump by the dirt people is probably 95% or better.

        A lot of it has to do with the fact that Trump cant be controlled, bought or bribed. The inability to assert leverage on him removes the control that these morally corrupt snakes have had for decades. No matter who rose to power, the ball kept moving down the field, and the corruption deepened.
        Trump exposes them all for the frauds that they are for fun with his twitter account, and there is nothing they can do about.
        This exposure can change the American landscape for a generation, and the msm is being shown to be the main purveyor of propaganda, and as such, they have become nothing more than a joke.
        Their free ride is coming to an end, and the people are gradually reclaiming their own destiny, free from the corrupt influence of these rats, whose only goal is to pillage America and divy up the proceeds.
        Trump is the only one who could do this, and he won an election that was systematically rigged for his opponents..,both GOPe and Hillary. Thats the rage. They have no idea how he pulled it off, and will never come to terms with it.

      This probably won’t appease you either, but people like Joy(less) DO have a different agenda, and the reason why Trump’s agenda angers her is because he is taking the power and money away from her and others like her and putting both back in the hands of regular ol’ everyday Americans.

      Plus, if Trump succeeds in winning over more and more people, then the losers’ hopes of regaining back their power and money become even less likely.

    • Are you asking why emotions aren’t logical, NCP? People neither love nor hate for entirely rational reasons. Some emotions are evolutionary adaptations, like the fight/flee/freeze response to negative stress. Some are supported by group context (If most of your friends and loved ones share a political orientation, it’s more likely you will too.) Some people like being contrarians. Whatever the majority opinion is, they tend to oppose it because it helps them stand out from the crowd. Others consciously desire to fit in and gain the approval of the big group, whatever it is.

      To put it another way, “Donald Trump the President” is mostly a construct we react to. It’s not the same construct as “Donald Trump the Real Estate Tycoon”, or “Donald Trump the Reality TV Star”. Each one is a limited, managed persona, an image, a stereotype. Most of us have never met and will never know “Donald Trump the Human Being”. So each of us brings our own set of baggage when interpreting “Donald Trump the President”, based on our own life experiences. We see things reflected in our own glass, darkly.

      If I had to pick a single, simple reason for why PDJT engenders hate from some I would guess it’s because he doesn’t outwardly behave like other presidents in our lifetime. He acts more like Andrew Jackson and other earlier ones. Many people react very negatively to changes they consider too extreme. That behavior increases as we age.

      You can read ridiculously over-the-top negative reactions to President Obama in here every day, as if he somehow single-handedly nearly ruined the entire past record of American progress. That is just as irrational as the kind of hate for President Trump you are trying to figure out. No president directs the course of history all by themselves. I personally believe that parents and teachers shape events far more than any president, because they do more to influence what kind of individuals we grow up to become.

      We’re talking about men, not gods. They all have strengths, all have flaws, and since we do too we will sometimes perceive them through the eyes of wisdom, and sometimes not. Presidents get re-evaluated over time. Some who were very unsuccessful when they were in office gain stature, and others lose favor. We vacillate as a nation, going through alternating periods of imperialism and isolationism. Opinions about presidents depend on how closely those persons are in sync with the current mood of the country, whatever it may be.

      I agree especially with your last paragraph. All life is cyclical. We have to be flexible enough to determine our own individual futures no matter who’s president. If you lose your cool every time someone you didn’t vote for gets elected, you’re not going to have a very happy life. Whatever parties constitute the two main ones at a given time tend to alternate holding the balance of power, and the majorities are rarely lopsided ones.

      There are two reasons that I see, Patrick. One is that most people still have a high school mentality, and they want to be like the “popular” kids, so they repeat all these inane statements made by the “popular kids”; it makes them feel “with it”! Yeesh. The other, and more important reason, is that this is a major part of the war between good and evil — a line is being drawn which has nothing to do with right or left, but everything to do with up or down.

      Because people become Leftwingers because of actual mental imbalance. They’re 1) depressed, 2) self-hating, 3) lazy, 4) crazy and 5) hate filled. They really, really hate their country, hate their parents, hate themselves and on and on. Look at Jon Stewarts eyes some day. He’s supposed to be a comedien but his eyes are always pools of sadness. He looks like he’s going to cry even when he’s making his “hilarious” clown faces. Scott Adams has started calling them the Party of Hate. I wonder where he’s been and why he hasn’t noticed hate is their main emotion early on? I’ve never met a Leftwinger that didn’t have these issues. Craziness, imbalance, self hate, hate of country and hate of humanity itself. They literally believe humanity itself is killing the planet, there should be less of us and that abortions save the world from more humans. It’s a full on disease.
      –I saw this on a website once and it helped me realize I was on the Right. The poster said “If a Rightwinger falls down, he dusts himself off and gets up again to try again. If a Leftwinger falls down he stays there and screams THE SYSTEM IS AGAINST ME!”
      –And that’s the truth.

      Don’t forget that Obama and Hillary both ascribe to Saul Alinsky’s Rule for Radicals, and have corrupted social interaction and discourse according to the following “rules” (see specifically ridicule, pressure, threatening, pushing the negative and polarizing, all of which is intellectually manipulative to the weak-minded, self-interested or uninformed):

      3.”Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
      4.”Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

      6.”A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”
      7.”A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
      8.”Keep the pressure on,”
      9.”The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
      10.”The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
      11.”If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside”

    I do not need any polls to tell me how the president is doing. He is doing great. The media and the ignorant peoples they have polled will not change the reality. It is ironic that the President is trying to make it better even for some of these ignorant peoples, and they do not even realize it by having listened the garbage that the fake news media have fed them all day long and they have absorbed it as a gospel truth.

    To the poster who asked why there’s so much hatred towards the President, especially with economic indicators pointing up & going sky high, I say this,, manipulation of the stupid, & an intense desire to keep the gravy train rolling

    The actors & actresses who play journalists for the fake MS Media. along with a huge number of this country’s college graduates, have been brainwashed & manipulated

    Our Marxist controlled school system, along with our leftist compliant media & business climate, have done an excellent job in removing the critical thinking skills & rational thought process of young minds, who then go on to college to become the “stupid people” via brainwashing techniques

    Feeble minded & weak willed people are easy to control & easy to manipulate, & once common sense is replaced with stringent all or nothing ideology, you get the Trump haters & the Hillary voters, ie, the stupid people

    The stupid people don’t see a flourishing economy as a good thing if it was brought about by a Republican. No matter if said economy is helping everyone, the poor included, it’s a bad thing because a Republican is in charge

    It’s that simple. No rational thought, no critical thinking, & no common sense. Again, the stupid people

    The hatred on the professional politician & government employee side stems from nothing but self interest, to continue the gravy train, ie, donor money, government paychecks & power

    There’s very few ideologically pure or racially loyal politicians. It’s almost always about money & the power that brings that money in

    The smart people were able to fend off the stupid people in the last election, but if we continue to allow the Marxist left to control our school system, it’s going to get much harder for common sense to win out

    You can see President Trump’s approval rating in the number of Christmas shoppers and Main Street sales. From Sundance

    “…U.S. retailers raked in a record $7.9 billion in online sales on Black Friday and Thanksgiving, up 17.9 percent from a year ago, according to Adobe Analytics, which measures transactions at the largest 100 U.S. web retailers, on Saturday.

    Black Friday and Thanksgiving online sales in the United States surged to record highs

    The National Retail Federation (NRF), which had predicted strong holiday sales helped by rising consumer confidence, said on Friday that fair weather across much of the nation had also helped draw shoppers into stores.

    The NRF, whose overall industry sales data is closely watched each year, is scheduled to release Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales numbers on Tuesday.

    U.S. consumer confidence has been strengthening over this past year, due to a labor market that is churning out jobs, rising home prices and stock markets that are hovering at record highs….”

    Yeah, sure people really hate President Trump, that is why the 8 years of Obummer Depression suddenly ended after he took office.

    Ground Report on economy improving and consumer confidence higher:
    Last year, 8 days before Christmas, we bought our Christmas tree at 1/2 price from the Lowes. I saw the big trees but stayed with a 6′ tree last year, happy about 1/2 price.

    This year I planned on splurging for one of the big trees. It was the “extra” I wanted this year and I wanted before 1/2 price time so we could enjoy it longer. (We almost always wait for the 1/2 off sale a week before Christmas).

    We went to Lowe’s tonight and the big trees were almost completely sold out. I figured they must have another shipment coming in. After last year, 1 wk before Christmas they had more than this left and they were even marked down 1/2! Nope, no more shipments coming in and they are almost completely sold out of all of the big trees.

    They said that Thanksgiving weekend they sold more trees than they sold all of Christmas season last year! So glad we didn’t wait! And we got a Beautiful tree.

    I know this is just one example for one small TN town in middle TN but I think it is part of the Trump Economy.

Drudge keeps linking to negative Trump polls, linking to bad news for Roy Moore, and following the lead of total con artists like ABC news, the station that made Bill Clinton’s Karl Rove (George Snuffalufogas) their main anchor.
    –Not only is the economy booming, but when everyone reports Trump’s negative numbers NOTICE THIS
    1) EVERYONE, EVEN HIS ENEMIES ARE ADDICTED TO HIM AND CAN’T THINK OF ANYONE ELSE. THE NEWS IS ALL ABOUT ONE MAN.
    2) Trump wrote about how to use negative news to your benefit in the Art of the Deal in the 1980’s, so he knows what he’s doing and has been at it for 40 years. So he’d prefer positive news, but he KNOWS how to make negative news into good results. Again, he literally wrote about it in his very first book.
    3) He’s not running against anyone else. The Dems don’t even have a single alternative to him. And when they get some feeble, boring Identity Politics poster child like Kamala Harris Trump will defeat that person in Round 2.
    –So if we fight like hell every day, donate to the Trump website directly as often as possible, and support every MAGA candidate we can including Roy Moore we’re going to bring on the “Golden Age” Scott Adams (Dilbert creator and self-described persuasion expert) is predicting.

            We can only hope though the economic ‘recovery’ in New Orleans didn’t cause a sudden emptying of the projects. One of the problems is education, and education is not highly valued – unless you’re talking street education.
            We’re not finding shovel-ready folks just vibrating in anticipation of employment, and unless their earnings are in excess of what they get now there’s not much interest in doing that 9-to-5 thing.
            We’ve had numerous programs that provide free education for specific skills needed for a specific job. Example: Some years back a local shipyard received a huge contract from the Government for new Navy ships. Skills like pipefitters, electricians and welders were needed for union-salary jobs. Training was free at courses set up by a local junior college tech school and trainees could get stipends while getting the free training. There were so few takers that the shipyard, with union approval, that the yards ended up flying in planes full of Indian workers to meet the deadlines. There are some severe problems with the country’s work ethic.

                It’s going to be tough. I worked in the projects, one of our jobs was repossessing cars on court order. We’re not talking rinky-dink old heaps but NEW cars, nice ones. So how does someone living in public housing, supposedly on the cusp of destitution, get financing for a high-end brand new car?
                Many residents had tax free, cash only jobs that paid over minimum wage, employers are glad to pay cash and avoid paying benefits and taxes so they pay a bit more. Then there are the residents doing lawn services, they do your lawn for less than a ‘pro’ service and take cash. A hundred bucks a day in earnings ain’t bad when you consider the state pays your rent, buys your food and pays for your medical care.
                Then we have the illegal stuff we all see but when the housing authority moved to have felons excluded from public housing politicians rose to defend mommas and wives housing felon sons, daughters and hubbies. All to no avail though as no one goes out and checks who lives in the apartments, there was no reliable listing.

    The responses to my question about “why the anger towards Donald Trump” are so appreciated and the more answers I read, the more light bulbs started flashing. I went down the list of those people I know who have remained snarky and butt hurt since last November and guess what their #1 occupation is? Women teachers. Yes, good people I have met and worked with in a dog rescue group for over ten years who are still tied closely to colleges. They live their lives on Facebook and keep their car radios tuned to NPR. They watch TV shows I’ve never heard of. One recommended I get the Trump bumper stickers off my car lest the car be damaged … Ha! That will be the day!

    . I do not live on the west coast; I live in the capital city of formerly solid red North Carolina. I noticed the blue creeping in during Obama’s campaign which focused on the cities and colleges. Everyone I meet is from somewhere else, mostly northern states or other countries. Hmmm. I just realized that the happy and vocal Trump supporters I know are men and many of these men confide that their wives will not allow any Trump talk at home. That needs to change.

      Your question addresses a complicated issue, and it’s interesting that you identified women teachers as a core segment of Trump haters. Academia is rife with ‘groupthink’. Consensual validation has replaced reality testing and individual critical thinking. Throw in self-censorship and pressure on anyone who dares to step outside the echo chamber and it becomes clear that there’s a lot of ‘go along to get along’ involved.

      In groupthink we see group members (and those on the periphery who crave admission to the group) striving to out do one another with outrageous statements or behaviors enforcing the approved views. This causes the group’s beliefs to become more defective, resulting in more intolerance to any deviance from the groupthink.

      Groupthink is certainly not limited to academia, but since that community is insulated we can easily see how this works. At the same time, the groupthink that is incubated in academia also spreads through society, like ripples from a stone thrown in a pond. It wasn’t by chance that the communists and the left made taking over academia a priority. Your comment that many men who are Trump supporters have wives that won’t allow Trump talk at home may reflect that, historically, most interaction with schools and teachers is by women with school age children.

      I highly recommend the movie ‘Mean Girls’ for examples of the symptoms of groupthink. (Another insulated community steeped in groupthink is Hollywood.))

      The problem remains how to combat this. We on the right tend to be more questioning, use critical thinking skills and reasoned debate. We prize individuality and don’t easily group up. Maybe most of us had mothers who encouraged us to ignore peer pressure (mine used that jumping off a cliff bit a lot). Maybe our left-brains (logic) are dominant while the leftists seem to be dependent on the right-brain (emotion).

      I think the law of diminishing returns is already in play. The less payoff for the left, the more group members will drift away. I’ve seen this recently in what was supposed to be a big rally protesting President Trump, racism and deportation in Denver (a sanctuary city, and CO is also a sanctuary state). About 100 people showed up. We also saw what happened with antics on 11/4/17. The more successful the President and his policies are, the more he (and we) ridicule and marginalize them, the quicker the left will lose supporters.
