REPORT: Trump Approval Rating Much Higher Than Media Wants You To Believe

It’s another fake news moment by the Establishment Media. They know it. You know it. Certainly, the Trump White House knows it. Remember all of those polls in 2016 declaring Hillary Clinton the winner? They were repeatedly slanted, skewed, a sham of an attempt to convince Trump supporters to stay home and assure Clinton voters of certain victory.

Since Donald Trump’s stunning Election Day victory, this same Establishment Media continues to try and convince Americans he’s a far less popular president than he actually is, once again setting themselves up for some major eating crow moments in the coming weeks.

Via Investors Business Daily:

Trump’s Approval Rating Is Better Than You Think

Despite the overwhelmingly negative coverage of his administration, President Donald Trump’s approval rating is as high or higher than half of the previous six presidents at this point in their first terms. You won’t believe who scored better.

Trump has been enjoying a rare string of good news. The economy is humming and the jobless rate just hit a 49-year low. Trump won an intense battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. He secured a replacement for Nafta. His poll numbers are edging up. And Republican prospects in the midterm elections appear to have improved.

But according to the Gallup Poll, Trump’s approval rating as of his 632nd day in office was 44%.

Is that good or bad? That depends on the context. Trump has never polled well. Gallup had his approval rating at 45% the day he took office.

The mainstream press focused intensely on Trump’s initial rating, which was well below those of any president since Gallup first started tracking this in 1945.

Even Gerald Ford’s approval rating 90 weeks into his accidental presidency was 71%.

But the press lost interest in such comparisons as time went by.

Perhaps one reason is that, by this point in their first terms, approval ratings for most presidents had declined. Sometimes sharply.

As a matter of fact, Trump’s approval rating is now higher than, or tied with, three of the past six presidents at this point in their first terms.

He’s currently tied with Obama (at 44%), and above both Clinton (41%) and Reagan (42%).

Obama’s approval rating on day one was 67%, but steadily declined as his economic policies failed to re-energize the economy, despite the massive stimulus, while he forced through the highly unpopular ObamaCare.

Clinton’s eroded after he broke his promise on tax hikes.

At this point in Reagan’s first term, the economy was in a painful recession, and unemployment was above 10%.

Needless to say, each went on to win re-election handily.

But look at who scored higher than Trump: George W. Bush (67%), George H.W. Bush (56%), and Jimmy Carter (49%). W. was coming off his sky-high approval rating in the wake of 9/11, which peaked at 90%. He ended his second term at 34% approval. George H.W. had just started building up troops in preparation for liberating Kuwait in Operation Desert Storm. Carter had recently signed the Camp David Accords.

What does all this mean?

First, it means that anyone who thinks Trump’s low approval ratings today are a problem for his re-election prospects is mistaken. There’s no correlation. Three presidents with ratings as low or lower than Trump’s served two terms. Two with much higher approval ratings at this point ended up as one-term losers.

But there’s a broader point here.

Democrats and the press keep describing Trump as a hugely divisive figure. But the polls show that his approval is starting to line up with previous presidents.

What’s more, Trump’s low numbers are almost entirely because Democrats are universally opposed to him.

To see this effect, look at the IBD/TIPP polls from the same month in the Trump and Obama administrations.

In October 2010, Obama had an approval rating of 42%. Trump’s approval in the October 2018 IBD/TIPP poll is 40%.

Naturally, Democrats gave Obama a sky-high approval ratings, as do Republicans for Trump.

Among independents, there’s almost no difference — Trump’s approval is 33%, Obama’s was 34%.

But there’s a huge gap in how Democrats and Republicans viewed their political opponents.

At this point in Obama’s presidency, 10% of Republicans approved of the job Obama was doing. And that was after his massive failed stimulus, his signing of ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank, and other policies highly antagonistic to Republicans.

Trump, on the other hand, gets approval from a mere 5% of Democrats. That’s where it’s been throughout Trump’s presidency.

Republicans, in other words, were more forgiving of Obama than Democrats have been of Trump.

So, who’s being divisive here? Trump and the GOP? Or the Democrats who will hate Trump no matter what he does?


 

President Trump Really Does Play 4D Chess. Example # 347

Here’s the thing. Donald Trump spent decades surviving and thriving in the rough-and-tumble business of New York City real estate. He’s tough. He’s smart. And yes, at times he is brutally honest in a way that often does not fit in this age of political correctness and fake personalities. 

Oh, and in case you didn’t notice, he wins. A LOT. Just ask Stormy Daniels and her 3rd rate lawyer…


 

BOOM! POTUS Trump Lays Down The Law With Honduras – Stop Illegal Caravan Or No Aid For You!

Globalist puppet master George Soros thinks himself a rather clever sort in how he has manufactured yet another immigrant caravan ‘crisis’ to unfold days before the November 2018 Midterms. Thousands of men, women, and children are marching along Mexican roads on their way to the U.S. border where they are to seek asylum and be joined by thousands more open border protesters/advocates in a made for television pre-election extravaganza that Mr. Soros believes will help Democrats to take the House and Senate. 

President Trump has just engaged the Soros plan directly with the full weight and power of his Executive Authority behind him.

Look for the Trump administration to also put significant pressure on the Mexican government to stop allowing these human caravans to enter their country illegally as well. This game of using human beings as political sideshow pawns must end. Trump is attempting to make that happen even as the liberal political and media elite continue to clap their hands thinking they’ve finally created an issue that can harm the Trump presidency.

BUSTED: Elizabeth Warren Reffered To As “Woman Of Color” In 1995 Fordham Law Review

She knew it was a lie yet was willing to use that lie to further her academic career. Senator Elizabeth Warren, aka “Pocahauntus” is not even close to being Native American. In fact, she’s less Native American than the vast majority of Americans who consider themselves white. 

The question now is if the media and the Democrat Party will be willing to admit the same. 

We shall see…


 

How Elizabeth Warren Just Stepped In It BIG TIME Over Her Fake Native American Claim

The jokes of “Pocahontas” have been plaguing Senator Elizabeth Warren since it became more widely known about seven years ago that she had categorized her ethnicity as Native American while working at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard University Law School, where she was a tenured faculty member starting in 1995. In an attempt to discredit the controversy by finally releasing a DNA test, what Senator Warren has actually done is confirm the lie she told.

She isn’t anywhere close to being Native American.

The test conducted privately via the services of Carlos D. Bustamante of Stanford University places Warren’s Native American heritage at somewhere between 1/32 – 1/1024th.

And get this – Warren is so desperate to convince people she hasn’t been lying by proclaiming herself as ‘Native American’ that she is now attempting to use the above results as evidence.

Since when does a 1/32 – 1/1024 result allow someone to declare themselves Native American?

It doesn’t.

Senator Warren has been undeniably caught in her own lie. She declared herself Native American while working at federally funded universities. She classified herself as a minority professor. She used that lie to further her standing in the academic community.

Most tribes in the United States require 25% provable Native American heritage to qualify as a member of that tribe. A smaller number of tribes require as little as 1/16th. So, by even the most accommodating standards, Elizabeth Warren falls well short of being ‘Native American.’ In fact, it’s likely the vast majority of Americans with European heritage have as much if not more Native American in their DNA than she does.

Warren is an educated woman. She’s a United States senator. One has to assume she knew this.

That means she purposely lied and has now been caught in that lie.

Shameful.

REPORT: Republicans Surging As Democrats Scramble To Maintain Midterms Lead

It appears America was repulsed by the slime tactics of Democrats that were unleashed during the Judge Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings earlier this month and that has resulted in a Midterm battle that is increasingly close as just 24 days remain until voters will settle the matter in November. 

Image result for 2018 midterms

Via RealClearPolitics:

With the election less than 24 days away, Republicans are seeing momentum in polls after the Kavanaugh hearings and a new path to holding their majority in the House. To do this, they need to stop Democrats from reaching a net pickup of 23 seats, which will likely require raising more last-minute money. Currently, many election watchers believe Democrats will gain anywhere from 20 to 40 seats. However, if their loss of momentum persists, the lower end of that range becomes more likely and Republicans would maintain a slender majority.

——————-

A ‘slender’ Republican majority in the House and Senate would equate to a HUGE win for the Trump White House as historically the party in power loses significant seats during a Midterm Election cycle. It would also be yet another slap against the faces of the media elite who have been chirping about a Democrat-driven, anti-Trump ‘Blue Wave’ since last year.

If Republicans hold both the House and Senate after the Midterms, President Trump’s 2020 reelection chances look to be very good—should he choose to run. (whispers persist that Mr. Trump is still considering the possibility of stepping away, declaring “Mission Accomplished’, and riding off into a much-deserved public service retirement.

ABC Execs Now Regret Firing Roseanne

As the Roseanne reboot ‘The Connors’ is set to launch this week, ABC executives are now admitting they might have made a terrible mistake in firing the iconic sitcom star and then attempting to revise the show without her even as millions of Roseanne fans say NO WAY to the new show that is absent the star who created it in the first place.

ABC Regrets Firing Roseanne; “We Didn’t Think It Through Properly”

ABC executives regret their “knee-jerk” decision to fire Roseanne Barr, and now believe that the network’s spin-off series The Conners will fail under the weight of its own politically correct hubris, reports the Daily Mail, citing two anonymous execs.

“We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation,” said one insider, who added, “This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.”

The Roseanne reboot – which quickly became ABC’s #1 top-rated series in April, was quickly derailed after the network suddenly fired star Roseanne Barr after she compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to if the “Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a bay,” comments which were condemned by Dungey as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”

Barr, 65, was fired before a single advertiser pulled out, just three months into the show’s return. Her co-stars immediately turned on her, publicly shunning Roseanne for her tweet.

…”In the end, the ratings are all that matter – and there are many people at Disney and ABC who are worried that firing Roseanne will see their Tuesday night ratings drop substantially. And should The Conners flop, Channing and her team will have many questions to answer.”

“The whisper across ABC is that they will not even be a quarter of what Roseanne achieved last season.”

An ABC spokesperson told the Mail denied that the network is concerned about the success of the Connors.

“One President. One Country. One Love.”

It’s the pic from today’s White House gathering that has the far left seething. One of the most important and influential musicians/entertainers of this generation, Kanye West, is seen embracing President Trump while wearing the now-iconic Make America Great Again cap. So much good is being done every day of the Trump administration but the Establishment Media and its Democrat Party cohorts would have us believe otherwise. (They even went so far as to call Mr. West a “dumb negro” earlier this week for his support of the president.)

Ignore the negativity and embrace the positive. America truly is growing stronger and more unified once again.


 

“No Civility Until We Have Power” -Hillary Clinton

Branco’s take on Hillary Clinton’s most recent declaration in support of nationwide violence in order to restore Democrats to power is sadly right on point.

The question now is if enough voters are paying attention and are rightfully disgusted by the far left’s constant enthusiasm for violence in the streets and will then vote accordingly this November and punish them by voting Republican. Mrs. Clinton is speaking words of outright fascism in which a select few elitists will hold absolute power over the words and thoughts of the masses—and many among the Establishment Media are applauding her message. It is once again up to YOU, the voter, to set this right. Any and all Democrats running today should be a resounding NO vote. 


 

Is The Fed Attempting To Damage The Trump Economy? A Market Expert Says YES…

Charles Payne is a highly successful and respected market expert whose life remains an example of self-made hard work whether it was during his time serving in the military, his years at E.F. Hutton, or running his own financial analyst business since 1991. 

When it comes to market manipulations the man knows his stuff and right now he’s calling out the Federal Reserve for politicizing its current monetary policy trend that he thinks is intended to put a damper on the remarkable Trump economy.

WTF? Fed gave money to Obama at 0% interest rate. With Trump they are charging and increasing the interest rates ridiculously. Is this the new political warfare zone?

The Fed is on pace to raise interest rates for the fourth time this year. That is in stark contrast to the Obama years when interest rates were set artificially at zero which allowed a shadow economy that primarily benefitted the very rich to thrive while Main Street continued to suffer. In less than two years the Trump administration has reversed that emphasis back to the Middle Class and the results have been astonishingly good but now more and more are questioning whether the Federal Reserve is trying hard to put some brakes on President Trump’s economic success. Some interest rate hikes, especially after so many years of a zero rate, are in order, but four rate hikes in one year? That is unusual and, according to experts like Charles Payne, quite possibly politically motivated to turn the economy into a negative for President Trump heading into the 2018 Midterms and the 2020 re-election cycle. 

President Trump Calls Out Eric Holder Statement As “Disgusting.”

President Trump, in an interview Thursday with “Fox & Friends,” rebuked Eric Holder for his call to “kick” Republicans and spurn civility, saying the Obama attorney general’s comments were “disgusting” and “dangerous.”

“He better be careful what he’s wishing for,” Trump told Fox News. “That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.”

APPALLING: CNN Giggles At ‘Kanye West Is A Dumb Negro’ Commentary. (VIDEO)

Just when you think CNN can go no lower it manages to do just that. Here is a panel this week hosted by Don Lemon giggling at open racism – calling entertainer Kanye West a dumb negro for Mr. West’s ongoing support of President Trump—the same President Trump who has overseen a dramatic improvement in black unemployment, business investment, etc. Mr. West recognizes how the president’s policies have benefitted minority communities all across America, and yet, these liberal elites demean and taunt Kanye West, throwing out racial slurs, calling him crazy, and then laughing as they do so. 

This is what happens when intelligent minorities in America #walkaway from the liberal plantation—they crack the whip and attempt to destroy you for having the courage to do so. Don Lemon is a media slave merchant of the worst kind.

As bad as tensions already are in America between the left and the right Hillary Clinton demanded this week that they get much worse.

$23 Billion Bill To “Fully Fund” Border Wall To Be Introduced This Week

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (who wants badly to become the next Speaker of the House) is set to introduce a full funding border wall bill this week to the tune of $23 million. McCarty is no doubt hoping the gesture will put him on President Trump’s good side. Given it’s coming from the Majority Leader, the bill’s chances of success in the House are high. If voters would like to see it succeed in the Senate as well so it can reach the president’s desk and be signed into law, those same voters will likely have to give Republicans a few more Trump-positive Senate votes during the 2018 Midterm elections.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and President Donald Trump

————-

Via ZERO HEDGE:

The forthcoming bill will not address Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) cases – which will give Democrats significantly less ammunition to derail the effort.

McCarthy will travel on Wednesday to the US border with Mexico to meet with Border Patrol agents, where he will also receive a briefing from Border Patrol officials on operations and threat assessments.

While the bill will probably pass through the House with little trouble, the Senate should prove to be a bit more daunting – as Republicans only have a 51-49 majority, and would need 60 votes to clear a filibuster hurdle on a cloture vote – unless Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell changed the Senate rules – which he has been thus far hesitant to do amid enormous pressure.

But that’s where things get interesting, as Republicans could pick up as many as five or more extra Senate seats in the midterm elections depending on how a variety of races shake out–meaning they would be much closer to that 60-vote threshold making it easier to roll the necessary Democrats and get the votes required to clear the cloture hurdle of 60 votes and get a bill like this to the president’s desk so he can sign it. -Breitbart

That said, Republicans wouldn’t have those key votes until January, 2019 – and that’s assuming the Democrats’ “blue wave” crashes on the rocks. “that means whatever the House passes in late 2018 for it to become law unless the Senate goes for it this year would need to be passed again in early 2019,” writes Boyle.

Red wave?

With a variety of post-midterm threats levied by Democrats – including launching investigations and impeachment proceedings against both President Trump and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Republicans who want to see the wall go up will have an additional incentive to head to the polls.

BREAKING: FBI Agent Confirms The Plot To Remove Trump Is Real

The Deep State Media Complex is working hard to bury this report.

Don’t let them.

READ. SHARE. EDUCATE.

October 09, 2018 – 05:59 AM EDT
Former FBI lawyer: Plot to record, remove Trump not a joke

Don’t tell former FBI general counsel James Baker that those now-infamous discussions about secretly recording President Donald Trump and using the tapes to remove him from office were a joke.

He apparently doesn’t believe it. And he held quite the vantage point – he was on the inside of the bureau’s leadership in May 2017, when the discussions occurred.
Baker told Congress last week that his boss – then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe – was dead serious about the idea of surreptitiously recording the 45th president and using the evidence to make the case that Trump should be removed from office, according to my sources.

Baker told lawmakers he wasn’t in the meeting that McCabe had with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in which the subject came up. But he did have firsthand conversations with McCabe and the FBI lawyer assigned to McCabe, Lisa Page, about the issue.

“As far as Baker was concerned, this was a real plan being discussed,” said a source directly familiar with the congressional investigation. “It was no laughing matter for the FBI.”
Word of Baker’s testimony surfaces just days before Rosenstein is set to be interviewed in private on Thursday by House Judiciary Committee lawmakers.

Since The New York Times first reported the allegations, Rosenstein, the No. 2 Department of Justice (DOJ) official, has tried to downplay his role in them. His office has suggested that he thought the discussions were a joke, that Rosenstein never gave an order to carry out such a plot, and that he does not believe Trump should be removed from office.
But making those statements through a spokesperson is a bit different than having Rosenstein himself face Congress and answer the questions under penalty of felony if lawmakers think he is lying

Baker’s account to lawmakers this month clearly complicates an already complicated picture for Rosenstein before Congress, assuming he shows up for Thursday’s interview.
But even more so, Baker’s story lays bare an extraordinary conversation in which at least some senior FBI officials thought it within their purview to try to capture the president on tape and then go to the president’s own Cabinet secretaries, hoping to persuade the senior leaders of the administration to remove the president from power.
Even more extraordinary is the timing of such discussions: They occurred, according to Baker’s account, in the window around FBI Director James Comey’s firing. Could it be that the leaders of a wounded, stunned FBI were seeking retribution for their boss’ firing with a secret recording operation?

I doubt this is the power that Congress intended to be exercised when it created the FBI a century ago or the circumstances in which the authors of the 25th Amendment imagined a president’s removal could be engineered.

This wasn’t a president who was incapacitated at the time. He was fully exercising his powers – but in a way the FBI leadership did not like.
And that makes the FBI’s involvement in the tape-record-then-dump-Trump conversations overtly political – even if Rosenstein believed the whole idea was farcical.

Keep in mind, this is the same FBI that, a few months earlier during the 2016 election, had its top counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok talking to Page – his lover and the top lawyer to McCabe – about using their official powers to “stop” Trump in the election and having an “insurance policy” against the GOP nominee. That insurance policy increasingly looks like an unverified dossier created by British intelligence operative Christopher Steele – a Trump hater himself – that was bought and paid for by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign through their mutual law firm.

“You walk away from the Baker interview with little doubt that the FBI leadership in that 2016-17 time-frame saw itself as far more than a neutral investigative agency but actually as a force to stop Trump’s election before it happened and then maybe reversing it after the election was over,” said a source directly familiar with the congressional investigation.
Baker provided some other valuable insights in his congressional interview. As I reported last week, he revealed that he accepted information in the Russia investigation from a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee.

And my sources also confirm Baker admitted he received a version of Steele’s dossier from left-leaning reporter David Corn of Mother Jones magazine, and then forwarded it to Strzok’s team. Corn says that occurred in November 2016, right after the election.

That transaction is significant for two reasons. First, at the time Steele had just been fired from the FBI probe for leaking to the media and he wasn’t supposed to be further assisting the probe. So Corn essentially acted as a back door to allow information to continue to flow.

Secondly, the FBI was using the news media as an investigative source outside the normal chain of evidence.
Whatever you think of Rosenstein or the Russia probe, the statements Baker made to Congress have implications for all Americans.

The FBI was created to investigate crimes and stop foreign intelligence and terrorism threats. It was never designed to be a broker in the political process of elections or the execution of the 25th Amendment.
