As Trump's World Turns: G7 Images (In Brief) And A Bit Of Polling


You might ask yourself, why do people poke disparaging cartoons and comments towards Trump?  Example...

No photo description available.

Well, for the most part, the criticism is deserving. Notice the clear nonverbal regarding his interest.

Do you believe for one second if Putin was at the table, Trump would adopt such a childish aura.

Telling, eh?

Well, let's take a parting peep at a bit of polling data regarding 45. If you wish to view the MSNBC segment I have linked it below.

Polls, Polls, And More Polling Data

Image result for TRUMP

On A busy Sunday morning, there is little time to devote to promulgating information. We thought a set of Trump approval rating graphics would tide you over for a few hours.

Chuck Todd's, Meet The Press, and early morning Trump.

Trump low marks for first 100 days: NBC News/WSJ poll

While NBC is reporting on Trump as the worse president in modern times, we wouldn;t be fair if we did not mention Trump is doing very well in one category on the poll. It seems Americans love the dropping of bombs and explosive ordinance. Trump has a 62% approval rating among the respondent group when asked their opinion of Trump's Syrian fireworks display over and across and empty airport. 

The following set of graphics is not meant as a form of snark. The data shows we are heading down a path which gave us George W. Bush and an international crisis (when coupled with poor banking decisions from the Clinton administration).

We do asset it is impossible to view the previous two graphics without contemplation of a couple of points. Non-whites vote moderately fewer than whites and whites seems to vote very much down the lines of social voting. Republican economic data is well published as a reliable flop after a period of good fortune. People who avoid such data while keeping their eyes and ears open to GOP political mantra (nationalism, militarism and in the case of 2016, celebrity worship) doom us to reliving our past. The current president, his cabal, and the GOP are so very administratively deranged, we may not escape the next Republican national abyss.

Presidential Polling: Trump Headed South

Image result for polls polls and polls

Poll numbers anyone?  Do you Trump's most spoken word as he rolled over his sad cadre of GOP opponents: "polls." He hasn't mentioned the "polls" since assume the Oval Office. And, actually, his poll numbers are slipping badly.

Last week Public Policy Polling (PPP)  published piece regarding the first three weeks of Trump in the White House. The findings were stark and revealing. Of more significance, the polling data (without specificity) has to include results from people who voted for Trump.

Americans Now Evenly Divided on Impeaching Trump
PPP's new national poll finds that Donald Trump's popularity as President has declined precipitously just over the last two weeks. On our first poll of his Presidency voters were evenly divided on Trump, with 44% approving of him and 44% also disapproving. Now his approval rating is 43%, while his disapproval has gone all the way up to 53%. If voters could choose they'd rather have both Barack Obama (52/44) or Hillary Clinton (49/45) instead of Trump. 
Just three weeks into his administration, voters are already evenly divided on the issue of impeaching Trump with 46% in favor and 46% opposed. Support for impeaching Trump has crept up from 35% 2 weeks ago, to 40% last week, to its 46% standing this week. While Clinton voters initially only supported Trump's impeachment 65/14, after seeing him in office over the last few weeks that's gone up already to 83/6. Read more, here.
Gallup also performed its standard weekly review of presidential polling. The numbers looked equally bleak. Gallup also performs a running review of approval ratings for past presidents. Trump is also losing that review

Why are the pool numbers as such? The answer isn't clear, but a couple of points are irrefutable. First, the numbers indicate a significant number of Trump voters have (albeit temporarily) soured on their reality show entertainer.  It makes one wonder if Nielsen shouldn't run a month to month review of American viewing of Trump. The nation's 45th President also has scored a number of geopolitical FUBARs since taking office: cabinet nominees, the failed mission in Yemen, and frequent weekend jaunts to his Florida mansion.  We shouldn't, however, overlook day to day fact checking which has yet to lean in his favor. One other damaging factor: a set of public presstitutes who couldn't effectively represent the Pope.

In addition to notable cases of ineptitude in political governance, Trump has managed some really horrific decision on the nation. His go ahead on the failed Yemen Seal mission offered insight into his decision-making. Reports are President Obama did not authorize the mission on several occasions based on discomfort with the prospect of a successful mission. Trumps go ahead resulted in the death of two Americans (one a Navy Seal). The failed mission also was reported to have resulted in the death of 30 plus citizen non-combatants.

Take a look at how modern US Presidents have polled in Mid-February after taking office in late January.

Can the nation actually wait to see if the nation's 45th President actually possess any competency at running the free world? Or, will we settle for four years of entertainment while the GOP takes the nation back to the 1940s and Trump deploys thousands of our kids and grand kids to the Middle East?
