Polls show Trump is growing stronger
« on: May 08, 2018, 07:54:19 AM »
CBS let this go to print? :biggrin:


To all the #NeverTrump Republicans hoping to dump the Donald in 2020, an update:

You're not going to do it in New Hampshire.

In the past, the Granite State's "First In The Nation" primary has proved troublesome for incumbent presidents. Some have performed so poorly they either dropped out of the race (LBJ) or went on to lose the general election (George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter).  But a new poll from Suffolk University's Political Research Center finds that, for the moment, President Trump has nothing to worry about.

If the New Hampshire primary were held today, Trump would trounce the field. He beats Ohio governor and "No Labels" heartthrob John Kasich 68-23 percent, and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake by an eye-popping 72-15 percent.

(Both Kasich and Flake have made recent high-profile appearances in New Hampshire, by the way.)


My mischievous pal David Paleologos, Suffolk's polling director, also threw in the name of soon-to-be-Utah-Senator Mitt Romney. Once again, it's not even close: Trump wins, 63-28 percent.

This is welcome news at the White House. In another New Hampshire poll just two months ago, President Trump couldn't break 50 percent against these same candidates. He had a narrow 48-42 percent lead over Gov. Kasich and 49-33 over Sen. Flake, which was hardly impressive.

Now he's crushing them by 50 points.
  Why this shift from "a horse race" to "Bambi vs. Godzilla?" To quote a favorite pollster cliché, his base has come home. And not just in New Hampshire.

Six months ago in the Gallup weekly tracking poll, President Trump's approval was under water by 25 points: 35-60 percent. Last week, he hit an 11-month high. And it's almost entirely thanks to the GOP.

As the data experts at FiveThirtyEight.com and others have noted, most presidents maintain overwhelming support from their own parties. Neither George W. Bush nor Obama's approval rating ever fell below 85 percent among the party faithful during their first year in office.

The same was not true for Trump. As recently as December, his approval among Republican voters was down in the 70s. But in the newest Gallup tracking poll, that support is up to 89 percent. (Among Democrats? Nine.)

And what are the Democrats giving him? Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Oh, and Nancy Pelosi just promised "I'm not going anywhere," while Congressional Democrats are debating what they want to do first once they take back the House: Impeach Donald Trump, or pass new gun control laws?

So I take it Nancy Pelosi does not need the Senate or Trump for passing laws now.   :lol:

Also, we should remember the history that Trump consistently under polls. This is especially true with the general electorate.

The Left, especially the NY and California elite still don't understand Mainstream America. Americans have ALWAYS supported the underdog in any fight. And as Rich, as powerful as DJT is, he is clearly the underdog. Its like a pack of rabid jackals trying to corner a lion who is kicking ass with ever swipe of the paw but they still keep circling and nipping.  Even some leftists are having an Ephiphany and urging the other more rabid leftists to tone it down. If he shitcans the Iran deal today, he'll move Up another few notches.

I have the feeling there are fewer "never Trump" Republicans every time Trump manages to meet one of his campaign promises.  Even the most adamant of "never Trumpers" are having fun watching progs and demoncraps implode on their own nefarious plans.  I see it on this site, as well as elsewhere.

The democrats and the establishment have absolutely no idea how to handle Trump. The Russia thing is one of the most ham handed strategies in modern times. And their plan to simply oppose everything he does is back firing. Today all the democrats trashed Trump for pulling out of the Iran deal. The problem is they themselves are on record opposing it in 2015 so they are criticizing Trump for tearing up a deal they didn't like. And my favorite bit is they accuse the president of having too much power when it was Obama that did the deal with congressional approval.
