President Trump’s Poll Numbers Are Surging

  The latest poll from Zogby Analytics showed Trump with a 45 percent approval rating—his highest in their poll since February.

According to Zogby, Trump’s numbers increased due to rising rates of approval among a number of smaller subgroups.

Among Hispanics, Trump’s approval rating increased from 31 percent to 42 percent since July. Among union householders, Trump’s approval was up to 51 percent from 43 percent, and among voters in the West, Trump’s approval was up from 33 percent to 43 percent.

Except for the far left, most people I know are pleased with Trump's actions. Some have bought into the far left's characterizations of the man, but still like what he has done. This approaches Goofus logic.

If Trump were a fictional character, the writer would have to give him more humanity to make him a believable villain or jerk.

It doesn't speak well for the people you know.

I know a pretty wide range of people, Goofus. They are fairly representative of the public at large. It is not surprising that you do not think well of them as you are always 100% incorrect.

The fact Donald Trump spoke against BOTH sides of Charlottsville protests will further gain him support. The usual talking heads, especially Fox News, only speak against the folks protesting removal of the Confederate statue, not the black lives matter fascists bused in by the thousands who actually started violence. Trump's poll numbers will shoot up dramatically because he spoke the truth yesterday despite the establishment's emphatic agreement with extremist liberals.

I agree that Trump needed to say what he did until we find out what really happened. For example, I have seen nothing in the fake news media telling us which side started it. Did the white supremacists come to protest tearing down Lee's statue which was their right? Then they were attacked by the left, who did not have any business even being there. Because of past history of the left starting all the riots, I want to wait and see. However given the total lying in the fake news, we may never know the truth?

I think we all like seeing a KKK'er getting his ass kicked in public. It used to be where most KKK rallies or White Supremacist rallies went totally ignored by everyone except the MSM. It's like they called for a riot and no one showed. Now, there is a professional group of Leftist rioters who are paid to agitate all political rallies. In a case where there are KKK'ers and Leftist thugs clubbing each other.. I enjoy seeing it. Hopefully it will end in a draw by attrition.
The sad thing is the innocent by-standers who thought they were actually doing something important and are killed or injured through violence in the process.

I find it telling that the white element was forcefully expunged from their own protest while Black Lives Matter agitators were allowed to remain around the Robert E. Lee statue all day. The idiot carl rove (notice lower case) appeared on Fox News and heavily criticized Trump today. That fat "architect" needs to go. Why he's even got anything to say about anything is beyond me. Fox News was fake news on the Charlottesville protests. If white KKK members are such a horror, then why not revisit Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia who was a Grand Dragon in the KKK. Why does he get a pass.

The white element didn't start violence in Charlottesville, the Black Lives Matter, George Soros funded, agitators did. Yet the masses are only allowed to hear a specific narrative carefully crafted by the establishment and media in careful collusion with each other. Notice that many folks were armed with modern sporting rifles in Charlottesville - if they were so violent and detestable, then one would think they would resort to shooting. They didn't, but BLM sure seemed ready to engage in violence at every turn.

Fox News seemed very upset that Virginia has open carry. They were sure to interview former police commissioners from New York and Boston, two anti-gun, anti-liberty cities who agreed that open carry was definitely a problem. Fox News is an establishment shill, and it's evident they have an anti-gun disposition 70% of the time. Judging from blogs on the Charlottsville protests, most Americans aren't buying the fake news narrative of Fox, MSNBC, CNN, etc. 70% of commenters ask why the reporting is so one sided.

Sarkazein said...

Listening to the MSM coverage of the Virginia KKK rally you would think the Klan went around looking for people to beat up. There is a rarely a mention of the paid Leftist thugs sent to agitate and will be proven to be the instigators.

Whatya know, Hitler said the same thing. Congratulations!!

Sarkazein wants to deflect the violence and murder in Charlottesville by Nazis, KKK and Alt Right Conservatives by attacking BLM. BLM is a legitimate non violent movement calling for people of Color to be treated fairly when interacting with police. People of Color are 4 times more likely to be killed by police than a white person. The Conservative propaganda machine has slandered BLM because conservatives are mostly racist. Trump is a Fascist Nazi.
Conservatives do not like freedom, liberty and justice.

Foscoe Phoenix said...

A Black Lives Matter supporter killed 5 cops in Dallas before being killed by police last year. Doesn't sound too non violent to me. People of color are 4 times more likely to COMMIT violence, against both whites and blacks, as is proven every day in places like Charlotte, Chicago, and Memphis. Conservatives push through liberal sponsored political correctness to expose this inconvenient truth. The truth always seems anathema to the liberal mindset.

Looking forward to the next Trump approval ratings

Sarkazein said...

Hey StupitPOV show me where I wrote anything about BLM in my comments about Charlottesville. Are you saying BLM are paid Leftist thugs? You could be right, but that's not what I wrote. I was blind-sighted by your comment.

Sarkazein said...

SEOUL—North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday... WSJ

Does anyone think President Trump will get any credit from the deranged for this?

Sarkazein said...

Little Kim probably thinks he's the winner of this bout. After all, he has the whole American Democrat Party on his side now.

Still higher than Pelosi's, or Congress for that matter.

Sarkazein said...

In real life, people should be amazed at how high President Trump's ratings are. He has 90+% of the MSM against him in a deranged way all while the Democrat Party is choosing politics over democracy (their words). A lesser man would have been defeated by these forces of evil by now.

Anonymous said...

Highest approval ratings among white nationalists for sure. You would call them the forces of good.

guy faulkes said...

Goofus, give us your definition of white nationalists, the difference between them and Black Lives Matter , and affirmative action.

As I watched them tear down the statue of the Confederate soldier, I thought of the people I grew up with. Today, escaping the cold up north and the rude people, a lot of Northerners now live in the South. So the South is no longer the South. However, if these statues were being torn down in my youth, it would have started the War Against the Northern Invasion all over again

USS Rodger Young said...

As our nation's ethics and morals continue to erode, we see statues being torn down. Not a bit of difference between the leftist movement and the Russian Communist Revolution. The question is whether the Great Purge will occur. Folks, are you really ready to stand behind your conservative beliefs? Most will say yes, but few are. Group think is very powerful in American society today. Standing against group thinkers like noneymouse coward and the BLM movement may seem like a no brainer now, but it will become progressively more difficult to stand for anything remotely conservative. Let's think of some things you will have to make the decision on in the future:
1. gun ownership - the left has already tried publishing the names of concealed carry license holders in newspapers in much the same manner as peaceful protestors in Charlottesville are being "Doxed" on social media
2. What clothes you wear- overalls might be an indication of individualism
3. What music you listen to - don't get caught listening to bluegrass or country music
4. What TV shows you watch - don't get caught watching the Dukes of Hazard
5. What history you are interested in. Do you like the Founding Fathers? You're a racist

Everything will be within limits. It will all go according to group think. The concept of rugged individualism is a mere relic of a racist age. Conservatives on this site have been warning of these events for years now. More than Rebel Statues will fall. Are you ready for your family to live under collectivism?
