1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: Today at 10:07:48 am
Granted, it's only been about a month....but say his approval is the same or worse throughout the 2020 election.

Has there ever been an incumbent president with similar approval ratings who won reelection?

His supporters are monsters too.
3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Democrats just accept a second Trump term in 2020 on: February 17, 2017, 03:23:08 am
He already lost one election, but won on a technicality.

At the rate he's going, 2020 won't be as friendly to him.
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Democrats just accept a second Trump term in 2020 on: February 16, 2017, 05:31:47 pm
His approval rating is 39%.

It's not even been one month.

We should NOT just accept he'll win a second term.

Eharding,

I'm just curious. What, if anything, would cause you to stop supporting Trump?

If the now known repeated communication with Russia during the campaign doesn't bother you, what will? What if it came out that his team was directly involved in the Russian hacks, which we also know occurred? Would you not consider it treasonous?
And what do you suppose his campaigns frequent contact with Russia during the course of the election was about, if not something to do with hacking our system? They weren't just exchanging recipes. What else would it be? Please humor me.

Will he have to be accused of rape and sexual misconduct before your support wavers?
Against an underage child?
Those accusations exist.

Would appointing under qualified cabinet officials do anything for you?
.Betsy DeVos.

Or him using his position to further his own, and his children's, brands? Because that is happening.

There has to be something that would even make you vote against him in the next election. I refuse to believe an educated voter in this country would have no moral reservations considering any of the above.

Wonder what level of Russian interference this poll is considering.

No surprise. Her husband didn't even really want to be president.

Any Republican who still supports Trump and wishes him to remain president is doing so only for partisan reasons.

To continue to support a man with reported Russian collaboration during the election is nothing short of anti-Americanism. You are unpatriotic if you like Trump. There is absolutely nothing about him that is in line with the things we pride ourselves on as a nation.

I want whatever you have been smoking.

Living in fantasy land.

Just reacting patriotically to the news. But I suppose you think it's fake.

The last four posts aren't even worthy of a response, other than to say I'm incredibly sad at the state of our country and its voters.

-Same. I'm sad that more people voted for HRC than for Trump.

Hypothetical: Hillary Clinton was elected president. Less than a month into her administration it is revealed that her campaign had been in constant contact with Russian intelligence officials during the course of the campaign. This, on top of prior revelations that the Russian government hacked the RNC and leaked damaging information about Trump.

And also the FBI broke policy one week before the election with a very vague yet unsettling announcement that they were investigating Trump.

What is your reaction at this point in Clinton's presidency?

They know exactly how they would respond. But they would never admit it.

-Neither is true. I was disgusted by Romney and supported Obama over him; I'm not some kind of blind partisan. The key matter in 2016 that made it different from 2012 was Scalia's death.

The blatant fascism and Russian dealings (which were known before Election Day) didn't do anything for you huh?

-You are unpatriotic if you desire senseless Russian-American confrontation.

This binary is basically a Kremlin talking point, BTW. I don't think you're a Putinbot (English too good) but you're regurgitating Kremlin propaganda

That's modern Republicans for you. Almost all of them don't care that everything we stand for is at stake with Trump. They're perfectly willing to let the country go, all in the name of party loyalty. Before 2016, I had never voted for a Democrat for president. But when Trump is a leading candidate, any sensible person who does not want to see what America would be like under Nazi rule would not have been able to support him.

Even Reagan would've despised what his party has sunk to with the likes of Putin's buddy in charge.

I have no desire for a confrontation with Russia or any other country.

What I take issue with is Russia hacking our election, calling into question the very results IMO. I don't want a Russian puppet as our leader.  Why do you?

Trump is done v100.0

What does it say about the state our country is in when 3 weeks into a presidency the opposing party wants the president removed from power.

The last 3 presidents have caused derangement illness in the opposing party.

The derangement is with those who make idiotic comments like this. 

Do you honestly believe that Trump or his senior campaign aides weren't fully in league with Putin?

-I'd have believed it had they removed all of O's sanctions on Russia, Belarus', and Syria on T's first day in office.

So, General Flynn was just freelancing?

-I'm not entirely sure why he resigned.

......you're not entirely sure....?

Really?
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Breaking News: Michael Flynn resigns on: February 14, 2017, 07:28:30 am
If one of Hillary's cabinet picks resigned less than a month in, every Trump voter would be screaming right now.

Just think of all the housewives who would rush to the polls to cast their vote for him.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will John Kasich primary Trump? on: February 13, 2017, 09:33:07 am
I'd vote for him.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What if the presidential election were redone? on: February 11, 2017, 10:05:27 am
-The mainstream polls all showed Her up four over Trump on election day.

What exactly is your point though?

She won by a smidgen over 2%, which would be within the MoE for pretty much any national poll showing 4%. The topic's question was presumably for factoring in any buyer's remorse.

-I suspect buyer's remorse on both sides is almost exactly equal, so Trump would win by the same margin if the election was redone (with maybe a New Hampshire win).

You can't have buyers remorse for something you didn't buy.

-There were lots of people voting for HRC expecting something much worse under DJT than what has actually happened.

If anything, more people would vote against Trump if they had the chance. I can't tell you how many Trump voters I know who, before the election, said he wouldn't actually do all the bad stuff he was campaigning around.

Trump: 261

His supporters are a cult, and they won't budge in their blind love of the man.  They see him as a good, moral, strong leader who will MAGA, but they don't really even know what all that means or entails.  They also don't really know at what point America will be "great again."  So pretty much just having him in office, that alone, is what made the country great again for them.  Ya know, as soon as the black man left.

I voted 20-30%, but that gives too much faith in the American electorate, of which around half are racist, stupid and racist, or just stupid.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Are white evangelicals the biggest hypocrites? on: January 27, 2017, 08:01:46 pm
I feel like if this thread involved black evangelicals instead of white evangelicals, it would be taken down.

Yay, let's call an entire group of people stupid because they don't like the same candidates we do.

There was only one candidate who supported policies opposite of what Christ taught.

Oddly enough that is who evangelicals flocked to in droves.
