Fox News Trump Poll

Image result for fox news trumpWhile I find myself frequently less than impressed with national surveys with a respondent group of around 1,000 people, it seems there is little choice. Since, I am no expert survey purveyor or analyst, I am much more believing of surveys with a respondent pool of around 12,000 people. Nonetheless, we persevere.

Fox News has released a poll regarding Donald Trump's first 100 Days in the White House (see below). Since we expend page space to the results of other less conservative pooling authorities, we feel compelled to give one documented conservative source a run at a report. No we will not post regarding Rasmussen as it is a conservative shill polling authority with questionable methodology. We have posted results from a Fox News survey taken between April 23 and April 25th.

As for reporting results? Fox News is masterful at shaving and trimming the central messages of their surveys, so let's start with a copy of the methodology (and survey) Fox survey.

As is the case with Trump his sycophant supporters are not about to admit their choice of president was to put it mildly a poor choice.  He is also the most dishonest of all US Presidents with a Politifact Truth-o-Meter of 398 statements skewered with indisputable "Untruth" lean.

As stated above, it seems many Trump supporters do not care about his total aura of dishonesty; they support him. A recent WaPO/ABC Poll reported 96% of Trump voters would cast the same vote if an election were held tomorrow. 

The ABC Poll with 96% of Trump supporters indicating they would again vote for Trump, doesn't track along with the Fox News respondent group.

lIt seems Trump supporters would carry the GOP flag and again vote for Trump, but even many of those survey respondents recognize a candidate with much to do beyond golfing at Mar-A-Lago.

100 Days Of An American Occupation

Image result for 100 days

When hypocrisy is so embarrassing it oozes into shameful. 

When lying is revealed as not just an inclination to cover something the person wishes to hide, the viewer has to surmise it is a "first thought" obsession which is more appropriately called an indication of pathology. Simply stated: a pathological liar. The Independent UK recently published a piece regarding comments from psychiatric experts and Trump's pathology. Nonetheless, his supporters do not seem to have interest. 

When supporters chose to overlook Trump's abnormal behavior and continue to support Trump at the 96% level, it doesn't say much about large swaths of the American public. 

Also in his first 100 days, Trump committed yet another egregious personal exhibition. Let's first take a peep at a campaign fumble from the man who really does seem to have entered early stages of mental diminution.

"7/11" VS "9/11"?  

Speaking of 9/11, what sort of human being would take their personal narcissism to a low level of comparing a TV appearance to the tragedy laid upon the nation in 2001? During an interview with the AP Trump reached to that very lowest of levels. Doesn't Trump also realize millions who despise him may also have watched viewed the appearance?

Trump mentioned an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer which garnered according to Trump, 9.2 million viewers.
It had 9.2 million people. It’s the highest they’ve ever had. On any, on air, [CBS’s John] Dickerson had 5.2 million people.
“It’s the highest for ‘Face the Nation’ or as I call it, ‘Deface the Nation’. It’s the highest for ‘Deface the Nation’ since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. It’s a tremendous advantage. embarrassing it oozes into shameful. 

How did we get here? We traveled a path of political operatives, accommodating (and facilitating) media, a bit of Russian tampering, and FBI Director who obviously had a stake in the outcome and gullible "social voters."

And then there were the "social voters." and a flawed electoral (college) system which doesn't allow for any consideration of the popular vote.
