    Gallup: Trump job approval drops to 37%

    As discussed here last week, Donald Trump's approval ratings continue to fall.

    http://forums.roadbikereview.com/pol...es-359768.html

    Last week at 39% and this week Gallup is report a further decline now down to 37%. Many experts believe at rating in the low 30% range prior to the 2018 mid-term election will cause havoc for the GOP with the prospect of losing the House and perhaps even the Senate.

    Of course there s a long ways to go before the 2018 election, What could happen? No suitable replacement for Obamacare? Or even a recession? Maybe another tweet-storm or two?
    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.

    Dropping the Department of Agriculture budget 21% is NOT going to help him retain his socialist-conservative base.

    Same for cutting airline routes to rural airports....that are only kept around due to subsidies.

    I haven't looked, but it came up WRT that idiot in Montana who proposed the law banning cyclists from highways....Montana for example gets 90% of its DOR budget from the federal government. Montana's gass and wheel taxes in no way pay for roads, and instead of making like other states and resorting to property taxes—they choose to be deadbeats on the fed government dole. I'm guessing that Trump's budget proposal cuts Montana's roads budget.

    The EPA and cutting federal funds to protect the Great Lakes are HUGE issues for me. I'm a pretty avid sportsman and enjoy having things like clean water to fish, swim, and boat in. Maybe I'm a dirty hippy, but I also like to know that the deer I hunt will have woods to run around in as well. I find a zen-like peace when I'm in the woods, not unlike savanasa after a good yoga practice.

    wait until rural doctors (who are often foreign MDs) leave rural county hospitals after the ACA is repealed or they're turned away at U.S. borders...Trump supporters are going to blow a gasket. It'll be amazing to watch their tiny heads explode when their quality of life is reduced even further. being gullible has consequences...

    [QUOTE=Marc;5135721] Montana's gass and wheel taxes in no way pay for roads, and instead of making like other states and resorting to property taxes

    Off topic but, as someone living in one of the fastest growing cities in the US, which also happens to be in MT...

    When the relatively low wages paid in MT are considered, my property taxes are already high enough and about to increase by 9% to cover new schools and other local infrastructure.

    I personally would like to see an increased gas tax and even a statewide sales tax (we have none) implemented so that the FLOOD of tourists that visit each winter and summer would start paying for upkeep of roads etc. that they use.

    Oddly enough, our democratic governor is pushing for a bill to enshrine our lack of sales tax in perpetuity and a proposed increase in the gas tax is being met with resistance as both of these are seen as regressive.

    That guy proposing to ban bikes from roads was ridiculed pretty much immediately and from every corner of the state and withdrew his proposal within a couple days of it being reported on.

    LOL, now Schwarzenegger is publicly dogging Donnie over the abysmal approval ratings. Just shoulda gone further with it.

    oh, just wait...Trump isn't even warmed up yet.

    give him a few more months to come up with more of his brain-dead ideas, insipid comments, and unethical/criminal actions.

    once the public is constantly confronted with his blatant disregard for normal people and the amount of sleaze his administration contains, his current numbers will probably look pretty good.

    Doesn't mean much as long as the extreme right base can primary anyone who opposes him. Twitter has pretty much enabled Trump and his most ardent fans are just like their idol, unable to admit when they have made a mistake. Health issues maybe the best hope for his removal, are the vaginas of America prepared for Pence getting in their way of health care?

    That only works if El Presidente is seen as viable... if Trump's numbers go low enough, you'll see the rats depart the sinking ship en masse.

    FWIW, I think this is gonna be more of a long-term process. It took America five or six years to get well and truly sick of Dubya, for instance.

    But if anyone can speed that process up, it's Donnie.

    Yep. Without a President Obama, there's no President Trump. I shudder to think about what we'd have now if Hillary won in 08...

    Even then... it wouldn't have happened without the SCOTUS game, a late upswing in healthcare costs due to two insurers pulling out this year, Comey's week before election announcement, a concerted effort by Wikileaks to keep the word "email" in the news daily, a disliked Bill Clinton to help cancel out Trump's own misogyny... to name a bunch of things that Hillary had zero control over.

    I will blame her for a few, more realistic things: mishandling classified information and not taking the issues seriously after the fact, pandering for about two decades and earning a reputation as a politician's politician, running in an anti-establishment year and most likely the actual reason that Biden didn't run.

    She did win the popular vote by almost 3 million votes.

    It doesn't appear that those issues you mentioned had much effect.

    What did have a big effect, at least in terms of electoral college totals, was a few old fools in the mid west believing Trump would bring back manufacturing jobs.

    The biggest mistake Hillary made was no telling these people she would bring back twice as many good paying jobs as Trump.

    But then she's not a con man.

    Wait till the next poll. This one was taken pre-FBI hearing. He's gonna lose a few points just over that.
    And if TRyancare fails to pass on Thursday, he's gonna lose a few points over that. Actually, if it passes, he still might lose a few points over it.

    Trump just approved funding for NASA. Sounds like good news, but I'm convinced that it's merely to distract from something supremely awful.

    Has he finally repealed the Johnson Amendment as promised? I'm certain he's doing something for the christian lobby, and is doing this to appear science-friendly.

    I'm very cynical and pessimistic to begin with.

    A return to U.S.-launched manned missions is an easy propaganda tool. He can say he's making America "great" again and hearken back to the "glory" days of the 20th century that he seems to pine for. Fortunately for him, the hardware to enable this has been in the pipeline for years and is almost ready. SpaceX and the Nasa-developed Orion program are all getting very close to ready. I think he'd LOVE the proposed manned lunar orbit in 2018 that is being talked about for Orion.

    Too bad Trump's wall funding budget is easily going to eat into and devour his manned-exploration budget.


    Who gives a crap about penis measuring manned flight anyway. Hopefully, the finished-and-being-tested James Webb Telescope doesn't get screwed by all of this. The damn thing is built, and is in testing before launch. Hopefully Trump doesn't screw that up.

    Regardless of whether you care, it will be big news if the lunar orbit mission happens next year. There will be glowing headlines about man's return to the moon. I agree that the hard science is much more important, but new satellites don't make headlines.

    Perhaps it's a good thing that Trump wants to send people to Mars.

    He DOES seem quite intent on doing everything possible to make this planet uninhabitable.

    Yup.There's headlines...and then there's science.


    Granted it'll be a great time to have stock in Lockheed.
