Default Trump tried to run an approval poll...

Trump tried to run an approval poll with no negative options.

"The joint fundraising committee that is spearheading Trump's 2020 re-election campaign has started an approval survey in conjunction with the Republican National Committee. The "Inaugural Year Approval Poll" appears to be a pretty standard set of questions, albeit to a probably not nationally representative sample - but when you really study it you will realise that there is something afoot."


Headline is a bit misleading. There is one question with a negative option. I would think this was a joke if it wasn't hosted on a site supported by the RNC.

And if you actually give them a response, they then ask you for a donation! It's a freaking fundraiser, nothing more.

I was too weirded out to click through it. Doesn't surprise me, though.

Those that like him, like him. (truth be told? I cant figure out why)
And those who despise him, well.....they do.
I fall into the latter category.

I try to avoid seeing any mention of him.

Anyone making an issue out of a poll on an obvious and targeted fundraising site is looking to make an issue of something that simply does not exist. This was never designed to be a 'public opinion' poll in the sense of being statistically valid.

Personally, I LOVE where the economy sits as concerns my retirement account. I am very frustrated that Obummercare was not gutted as it would have been nice to have insurance commensurate with what I had BEFORE that POS came into being.

Sadly, the hubris that goes with the mid-terms is going to put us back into gridlock. Saving grace there is it makes it far more difficult for the libs to gut the tax bill and to attempt to further their handout agenda...

Sorry, have had to reframe my response after you edited out the offensive phrase.

Of course it isn't statistically valid. It's still utterly ridiculous.

Congrats on your retirement fund.

I suspect CenTex's retirement fund would be looking just as rosy had Hillary made it in there.

The economy was already on a tear at the close of the Obama Administration, the current president inherited a great economy, no doubt.

We'll just have to see what sort of mess is left for us at the end of the current term... trillions more in debt, for one thing, since the latest tax cut wasn't paid for and will adding that much more to our yearly budget deficits.

Ah well. For those of us who don't have kids, who cares right? Not our problem... kick it off to the next generation.

...who will be super prepared to cope with it after reaching the stellar education goals set by Ms. DeVos and the access to healthcare they'll have after the extension to CHIP runs out.

I remember a New Yorker cartoon with the caption "It's not enough that I ride in first class...My friends must ride in coach!"

It's nice that you're up there in first class, Lyn, but what about those of us who never even get to peek behind the curtain? It's not that I didn't work 60 or 70 hour weeks, but horses aren't a tremendously financially rewarding line of work if you're honest.

Had I realized back in college I had to earn a living I might have tried to get a degree I could use!!! I wasted years of time and tons of money I'm not sitting pretty but I won't blame anyone but myself. So really if I have to cut coupons and budget who's fault is it not the presidents that's for sure. My choices got me where I am not TRUMP!!!!
