If President Trump is "doing a bad job so far" then why are his approval numbers rising?
Despite the partisan climate we're seeing since the election - Americans are starting to warm up to this president and his approval rating climbed to 55%
Ralph - I have asked numerous times on negative comments for a single fact on how the persons life is worse since Trump became President. Perhaps you have even see some of these comments I made on your hubs.
Strangely enough I have never received even one response on that question.
The only ones complaining seem to be those depending on the bureaucracy for money
To my knowledge the entitlement trucks are still rolling. I have not heard of anyone who have lost their freebies.
Interesting opinion considering you are in Idaho - Ralph. Idaho gets more than $2 in every $1 paid in federal taxes. Seems like states like Idaho are the ones with dependency problems.
Norine - What has my Jesus got to do with my comment? The point was that to my knowledge nothing has been taken away from anyone so far so why all the protests?
"Whatever you do to the LEAST of them, you do unto ME"(Matt25:31-46)!
Now get up off of those taxes $'s of yours & "help the needy" if you do according to THE JESUS!
If they squander w/o repentance, they're only "digging their ditch" in hell!
Norine that is an odd comment to make when you don't even know me. I would bet I have "given" far more than you in my lifetime.
I bet! I'm only "rich" in Spirit!
You see Mike, I prayed before voting cuz I know both evil! I asked myself "Which 1 is more Christ-like"(judging)? Hillary "gives choice"(Josh24:15) exp,etc vsTrump"Self centered!" No brainer!
I pray for our Pres
RC: "depending on the bureaucracy for money" is that a racist dog whistle? StopDogWhistleRacism.com
Are you kidding me? You know exactly what it means - people living off the gov't - making $200k for do nothing jobs
I agree, president Trump is doing the job and working on the goals that got him elected. The "bad job" is the bias of the still MSM that worshiped president Obama and Hillary Clinton. And basically any liberal or democrat.
I just listened to president Trump's press conference today. I thought he did a great job and he fielded the tough questions with honest believable answers. He had to go through some of them two or more times because the different members of the press kept asking the same questions.
Like the one about him and Russia, especially with Putin. He stated that he had two conversations with Putin on the phone. The 1st when Putin called to congratulate him winning the election, and the 2nd for the Inauguration, which he said was a good and lengthy one. Other than that he has no ties whatsoever with Russia or Putin. He did say that was unlike Sec of State HRC who gave 1/5 of the US production of Uranium. The stuff that can make a Nuclear Holocaust. And he pointed out that the MSM ignored that.
He also took the ?s on firing Gen Flynn. I thought he was very honest, & gracious with the press. He did point out those media that he said were publishing fake news.
After the press conference, NBC pundits started their venom spitting. It was clear they were defending ex presBarack Obama instead of reporting on the Trump good things.
That was really my answer for this ?. It is liberal extreme MSM spewing doom &gloom where none exists. It is MSM social reengineering.
His press conf worthwhile listening, but make sure it is unedited raw.
liberals & their minions the protester/rioters must be taking their view from MSM. Although, they say they don't, but they couldn't possibly be listening to Trump unedited. They all use the same sound bites, and misinformation. and as Trump said about CNN and the rest they do their reports with so much anger and rage. This is what I see here on hp.
I don't believe polls, good or bad. So I like the fact that president Trump uses Twitter to put out the raw stuff, as well as his press conferences and then the only view that is important to me, is my view from what I have seen & heard.
Every person in a poll can represent 1000, 10000 or more people, I don't believe that one person can represent all those humans.
Trump is just getting BAD press fabricated to make it appear Trump is in trouble.
You should listen to what Trump says about Russia.
del if u wish.
By what poll? Do you represent "Fake News?" Just needed conversation? Used outdated polls which were before presidency? Where did you get your info? I can't find on internet!
Have you read the "Gallup Poll?"
This world doesn't need any more LIES! That's why we're in the predicament we're in!
As I've stated before on HP, You ask a Q of three diff men (polls) u get 3 diff opinions! Not like Holy Spirit guidance Who has One Mind, is it?
Did you hear Mr. Deeds?
Norine, what lies and from whom. This situation took almost 50 years to happen. What could Trump do in less than a month?
Brad, we're talking about his rating in 'a poll' not how the country was placed in this predicament!
I'd have no problem w/Trump IF he'd be quite & do as promised. HP took down my HUB stating that!
GOD placed him there so WHATEVER! I'm READY!
What placed us in "this situation" has NOTHING to do w/his current rating in a poll! Anyway, it all depends on what poll you are looking at!
Trump seems to be trying if not succeeding at getting things done. Despite a constant barrage of negative media distractment, rioting by criminals and the tantrums of lefties, he seems to be forging ahead. The DJIA keeps setting records. He seems to have a rapport with Netanyahu etc. An outsider that has never been a politician seems to be getting more done despite the nonsense than any politician I have ever seen.
Trump needs to wrote legislation on both the border tax and the immigration problem. He should submit this legislation to Congress. This is what every President does in order to lead Congress in a given direction. All Trump has done is complain that
President Trump’s approval rating is at 39 percent, according to a new poll.
The latest Pew Research Center poll released Thursday shows Trump at a historic low compared with prior presidents in their first weeks in office.
The poll found just 39 percent approve of his job performance while 56 percent disapprove.
By comparison, President Barack Obama’s approval was at 64 percent in the February after he began his first term. President George W. Bush had a 53 percent approval rating in his first month in office. His father, President George H.W. Bush, had a 63 percent approval rating, while President Bill Clinton had a 56 percent approval rating. President Ronald Reagan had a 55 percent approval rating.
The poll found opinion on Trump is sharply polarized — 75 percent either strongly approve or strongly disapprove of the president.
So it shows that the polls don't correlate with accomplishments. President Obama had zero, maybe negative accomplishments, while Trump has been accomplishing things since he was pres elect. Didn't we learn anything about polls last year?
"Didn't we learn anything about polls last year?"
I hate people who put negative feedback on people's opinions so they get hidden - thanks for your input Ralph
Obama was the opposite of Trump. Obama did not feel the need to constantly be in the spotlight. Obama worked quietly with his Democratic Congress.
So how to make it unhidden? Give it thumbs Up?
His approval ratings aren't rising. I'm down in Texas, any people are furious with him over all this talk about a wall and invoking a trade war with Mexico.
Depends on who polled the voters in order to get those approval ratings. One article I read places Trump's approval rating at 40%. However, we must remember that approval rating are not a constant.
My major concern is not the approval ratings. I read recently that a group of Republican Congress members are traveling to the leaders of the various nations Trump has talked to. Their purpose is damage control. Pence has been practicing damage control since he was given the VP position on the Republican ticket.
Trump needs to second source his information.. The perfect example is Sweden. Sweden officials claim that they are not experiencing increased crime rates due to Asylum seekers.
Why isn't Trump using our intelligence people to gather this information? Why would any President use MSNBC or FOX news as their sole source?
They doing damage not control.State Dept does this job, they are in Exec Branch not Congress. VP Pence is explaining Trump policy. The Nat Intel Agencies have a pathetic record. WTC 1993, 2001. Iraq 2004. CIA leaking secret WH info. 2016,17
BM : Yup that's why - Harward turned down NSC job bc the WH seems so chaotic; Harward called the offer a "shit sandwich.".
He has high approval ratings only with Rasmussem Reports, which does polling for Fox News and Republican candidates.
All other polls show him trending down with more unfavorable than favorable.

"Make America Great Again" in Russian and Baldwin wears it.
сделать = Make
Америка = America
здорово снова = healthy again
One poll does not make a rising trend. Overall, his numbers are still in the tank, and painfully low for a President who should be in his honeymoon period.

So President Obama's approval rating after one month is...only 68%. Our expectations of him on Inauguration night were too high. His approval rating back on Jan. 20 was around 80%.

when I went to a private club/restaurant that we belong to. All of them voted for Obama, but none are happy with him. One wants Hillary to challenge him in 2012, two said they'd vote dem in 2012 if someone other than BO is running, one is definitely voting Republican in 2012, and two have...
