Russia better not interfere in the election but the US Media is more than welcome to.  Good times

Still not one peep from the Democrats here about this or in the debate thread. 

 

Tim is giving the predictable response in his thread.  It's no big deal find something else to be outraged about while still screaming about Russia.

He sounds amazing. This show is incredible and being broadcast to an audience 20 times bigger than CNN or MSDNC.

So a majority of Americans feel we are better off today than when Obama left office.   Kind of destroys the talking points in the PSF.

These polls and questions always interest.  Curious what most people's definition of "better off" is?

Gallup is pretty credible.  If you factor in the reality that many people keep positive Trump comments on the down-low, the real percentage is probably pushing 70%.

I didn't say it wasn't credible, just pondering on the question and how people define it.  

I would probably say yes to the question, but also would question how much of that has to do with any POTUS.

That Gallup poll doesn't say what Donald Trump thinks it does

[...]

What the Gallup numbers suggest is that even though people feel better off than they were at this time in 2016 -- a somewhat remarkable finding given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic -- they don't ascribe that better feeling to Trump and his policies. Or even if they do give Trump credit for feeling "better off" -- usually a measure of economic stability, optimism and well-being -- there are other things they prioritize when it comes to choosing the next president.

Consider Gallup's other findings as they relate to Trump. His job approval for the month of September in Gallup polling is 44%. (That compares to 49% for Barack Obama in September 2012, 53% for George w. Bush in September 2004 and 60% for Bill Clinton in September 1996.) His personal favorability rating is 41% in Gallup's September data; at this time in 2012, Obama's personal favorable rating was 55%.

The message voters are sending is pretty clear: Many of them just don't like Trump personally.

That should be extremely worrisome for the President and his team. A majority of people feel better about their own lives than they did four years ago. With any past president, that would be a near-guarantee of a second term. Voters who feel like their own lives -- typically judged by their economic successes (or failures) -- are getting better have little interest in changing out the president.

But that's not the case here. A majority of voters are satisfied with where they are and, according to all swing state and national polling, want to replace Trump with former Vice President Joe Biden. (Biden leads Trump 53% to 42% in CNN's poll of polls.)

That's a very, very tough nut for Trump to crack -- even if he had two years to do it. But he doesn't have two years. He has 25 days. Essentially he has to figure out a way to get credit for voters' positive feelings about their personal status while also somehow convincing them to prioritize that feeling over their personal dislike for him and the way he conducts himself in office.

What that Gallup poll that Trump and his campaign have touted actually tells us is that if Trump had been, well, a whole lot less Trump-y, he might be in a strong position to win a second term. But because Trump is Trump, he has managed to separate out voters' positive feelings about their lives from their feelings about him. People feel good about their situations, and Trump doesn't benefit.

Rather than pumping up that poll as proof of his successes, Trump should see the Gallup numbers for what they actually are: A blaring warning sign that he is headed toward a loss on November 3.

CNN spin.  

There is a disconnect between the Gallup 56% finding and Trump's dismal approval ratings and how he is polling nationally and in swing states against Biden.

One would think that either Gallup's 56% of respondents feeling better off than in 2016 is out of whack, or Trumps approval ratings and presidential polling numbers are. They shouldn't both be true...unless they do feel better but don't attribute it to Trump's policies or even like him.

As we have all known the approval ratings are junk.

Like I said I would vote better off.  0 chance Trump gets my vote though.

I have to question whether the author who wrote that piece for CNN even bothered to look at the poll.  The very first sentence of the poll says, "Results are based on telephone interviews conducted January 16-29, 2020..."  So at that point in time, COVID wasn't an issues in the United States.  

Then his position that they don't ascribe their better feelings to Trump's policies, seems like a bit of cherry picking on the authors part.  There are two questions, "Please indicate how much credit, if any, [RANDOM ORDER] deserves for the improvement in the state of the economy in the past few years - -"

Donald Trump - Great deal: 37%; Fair amount: 25%; Not much: 19%; None at all: 18%

Then there is a question, "Thinking about improvements  in the U.S. economy OVER THE PAST YEAR, how much credit do you give [RANDOM ORDER]..."

Donald Trump - Great deal: 22%; Fair amount: 27%; Not much: 26%; None at all: 24%; No opinion: 2%

So over the past few years, 62% of respondents gave Trump credit for the economy.  Over the past year only 49% gave him credit.

I am not sure what you are looking at, I edited the article, signified by [...] it the omitted part it says (you can find at link)

That was amazing and Trump sounded great. Listened to the entire thing going up 151 to Madison and every field is loaded with Trump signs, again. 👍

I almost forgot how great of a life Trump had before this before Rush brought it up. One of the biggest shows on tv, filthy rich, adored by the liberal media and Hollywood. Sometimes I think as a country we truly don’t deserve President Trump.

Imagine President Trump giving this answer. 

Reporter: "Don't the voters deserve to know [your position on packing the courts?]"

@JoeBiden: "No, they don't deserve"

Almost as bad as Mike Pence refusing to say whether Trump would accept election outcome.

I love how angry he got at the reporter as well. Notice that was a local affiliate reporter finally pressing him on this. The MSM would never press him like this. Not like it’s an important issue or anything.
