Every time Trump sends a tweet about how "important" his day is going to be, he's golfing.

Poll: President Trump's approval rating surges after August slump

According to the latest Rasmussen daily tracking poll, Trump's approval rating currently hit 44 percent on Monday after cresting to 46 percent late last week. That's the highest approval rating he's seen in that survey since early June, and up about eight points from his low of 36 percent in early August when his approval dropped below former President Barack Obama's threshold.  

The latest poll also shows 55 percent of likely U.S. voters disapprove of Trump's job performance, with 45 percent strongly disapproving and 27 percent strongly approving.

 

Trump is now in the throes of the fall legislative calendar, with a list of campaign promises he has yet to make good on during his first eight months in office. Tax reform, health care and now the scraping of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy -- each of these Trump has signaled Congress must get done, and how he postures himself at the head of the helm could define his approval ratings moving forward.

*********************************************************

If the middle class tax cuts and the wall happen, he will win re-election.

Not as dimwitted as Trump eliminating Obama regulations that were to make federally funded infrastructure less vulnerable to flooding.  Trump did this 10 days before Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas.

Thanks to Obama, Puerto Rico might never recover from Irma

 

n June 2016, Congress and President Obama passed a bill supposedly to address the economic crisis in Puerto Rico, by imposing external dictatorship on the island. Called the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (or PROMESA), it placed an unelected seven-member board in total control of all important policy.

The supposed justification was to give the island some way to get through bankruptcy. In reality it has set the island up for a decade of mass unemployment and crisis — without remotely fixing the debt problem. It's no accident the locals call the board "La Junta."

And now Puerto Rico has suffered serious damage from Hurricane Irma, adding yet another problem to the pile.

 

The other thing that must be remembered is that the austerity always demanded by creditors during a debt crisis is straightforwardly self-defeating. As many countries have demonstrated since the 2008 financial crisis, austerity during a depression makes a debt problem worse, by strangling the economy and reducing tax revenue.

***************************************************************

Obama even left Puerto Rico in a disaster thanks to his policies.

George Clooney: 'I cry four times a day with tiredness'

New dad George Clooney has revealed that while his three-month-old twins "don't cry", he does "four times a day" because he is so tired.

Oscar-winner Clooney and his wife Amal welcomed their son and daughter, Alexander and Ella, on June 6 this year and while they have brought an incredible amount of "joy and love" to their lives, the actor is as knackered, like any other parent with a newborn.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said: "They don’t cry. I cry more than they do. I cry four times a day right now, because I’m so tired.

*******************************************************

He forgot to add in how many times he still cries over Donald Trump being elected President.

What has he done exactly to "handle" the economy but to stay the course that Obama put in place to recover from the miserable job the GOP did?

 

More fake news.  The President doesn't 'handle' the economy therefor the question is bogus.

 

But people will answer a bogus, meritless polling question and the MSM will report the result.

Majority Approves of Trump's Handling of the Economy

A majority of Americans, 51%, now say they approve of the way Donald Trump is handling the economy. That is up from 45% in June and is his best rating among four issues tested in the latest Gallup poll.

 

Trump's economic approval rating in the Sept. 6-10 survey marks the first time he has earned majority approval on any issue Gallup has asked about, including four issues measured in February and 10 in June.

The September poll also finds that 45% of Americans approve of Trump's handling of North Korea, 41% rate his handling of foreign affairs positively and 39% give him favorable reviews on immigration. His rating on immigration has changed little in recent months, while his foreign affairs rating is up slightly.

********************************************************

Once the tax cuts for the middle class happen, it will go up much further.

What's with all the broken poems and double posts? Some still can't learn the internet.

And even if they learn the internet, some folks still sound like fools.

I won't mention any names or initials.

 

The upcoming 2016 GOP presidential is Jeb Bush's to lose.


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

“Half (49 percent) of voters believe Clinton’s continued presence on the national stage is bad for the Democratic Party,” a statement by the group notes. “Forty-four percent (44 percent) say the weakness of her candidacy was the most likely reason for Clinton’s loss last November.”

 

I think with every appearance, every interview, every word she speaks, another one percent of the population starts to dislike her and those who already dislike her start to hate her.

 

It's pretty bad when the polls rate you below Donald Trump in popularity and approval. That guy is not admired much - but he still ranks above her.

2020: Sanders has big lead, Zuckerberg the dark horse, McAuliffe dead last

The upcoming 2020 Democratic presidential is Sen. Bernie Sanders' to lose, according to a new election poll.

Sanders has a huge lead over rivals Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden, both of whom are eyeing a bid.

 

The dark horse appears to be Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a media and Clinton favorite, is dead last with just 1 percent supporting his candidacy in the Zogby Analytics survey of likely Democratic primary voters provided exclusively to Secrets.

Sanders, who was edged out by Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016, is her heir apparent. Some 28 percent back Sanders, nearly twice that of Biden at 17 percent and nearly three times Warren's 12 percent.

"Democratic primary voters are still excited about the prospect of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders winning the nomination," said the survey analysis, provided to Secrets.

*************************************************

I would go to church every Sunday if it meant either Bernie or Zuckerberg was the nominee. That would mean 4 more years of Trump in a landslide.

Poll: Majority say Hillary Clinton should retire

A new poll by Rasmussen Reports has found that more than half, 61 percent, of the 1,000 likely voters surveyed say Hillary Clinton should retire.

Those respondents may get their wish. The former Democratic presidential candidate recently told CBS Sunday Morning’s Jane Pauley that her career as an active politician is “over.”

 “I am done with being a candidate, but I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake," Clinton explained.

 

“Half (49 percent) of voters believe Clinton’s continued presence on the national stage is bad for the Democratic Party,” a statement by the group notes. “Forty-four percent (44 percent) say the weakness of her candidacy was the most likely reason for Clinton’s loss last November.”

*********************************************

Please stick around, you're the Democratic gift that keeps giving. lol

Trump has already had a national bestselling book on business, something the Democrats know nothing about.

 

He had a ghost writer who has said that Trump can barely read.  Boy you really walked right into that one. :)

Well, was a best seller. That was months ago. Donny MAGA's

secret plan to save America. Didn't Nixon have a secret plan

too? And for the last thirty years, Horowitz has had a secret

plan to sound like a rational person instead of a loony toon.

That plan ain't working either.

Big Woo--Amazon has done that before, with Simon R. Green's books and Laurell K. Hamilton's books (those are just the two authors I can think of immediately)--a pity, because reading some of the reviews was more entertaining than reading the book.

 

YouTube and Sony tried the same tactic in 2016 with the "Ghostbusters" remake;  They couldn't keep up with the bad reviews, and were swamped.

 

It's all about selling more books/movie tickets and making more money; a concept Donald Trump can't say he doesn't understand.  Anyone expressing outrage over a common corporate practice is naive; Amazon.com is a corporation.

What was the title of Trump's tome? "How to Crash the Economy while Pursuing Trickle-Down Economics and Hiring Predatory Wall Street Lenders to Advise/Run National Financial Team"?
