    I think someone should start a new thread to address the chaotic state of this administration.

    His approval rating will probably go up in the next couple of weeks. From USA Today:

    "President Trump, already under fire for spending so many weekends at his resorts in Florida, Virginia, and New Jersey, is scheduled to leave Friday for what aides are calling a 17-day "working vacation" based at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J."

    Out of sight...out of mind!

    I'm glad I did not bet on that!! ha ha.

    Low point, three-day average 34% Aug 11-13, 2017GALLUP

    President Trump's Gallup daily approval rating on Sunday was just 36 percent, even worse than former President Richard Nixon'srating of 39 percent in July 1973, when he refused to turn over the infamous White House tapes. Nixon's approval rating didn't hit a low of 36 percent until mid-August, as the Watergate scandal heightened, and at that point he only had a net differential of minus-18, The New

    Presidential national approval ratings are worthless because our electoral system doesn't give a damn what the majority of Americans think. If it did then Hillary Clinton would be our President because the people overwhelmingly chose her over Donald. If it did then Al Gore would have been President because the people chose him over W.

    It's been nice to see a handful of swing states starting to sour on Donald, but those polls are as worthless as a $3 bill right now. Let's see what those angry white Donald voters in the swing states do when they are faced with the choice of voting for Donald or the Democratic candidate come 2020.

    Republicans vote straight party line no matter what in Federal elections. Democrats vote with their feelings and would rather lose an election than vote for someone who doesn't agree with 100% of everything they believe.

    That purity test has worked out so well for us, hasn't it?

    Well, my feelings are republicans are doing everything wrong, and that is why I will never vote for even one, no matter if a democrat failed the Vietnam litmus test (John Kerry) or committed adultery (Bill Clinton) or didn't produce a birth certificate quickly enough (Barak Obama).

    Swing state voter remorse, disapproval ratings in the higher 50 percentile range, so sad, too bad. But Ryan will get reelected, he created jobs in Wisconsin, even though $3B in tax incentives won't be paid for in 22 years-to break even, and Walker will be elected because he busted the teachers union which saved (really not) taxpayers oodles of money, Wisconsinites are officially dumbed down less than high school educated morons.

    Was there anything Hillary could have done to have won the 2016 election?

    Jared, It wasn't a last second bait and switch

    Trick. Every Dem hates the electoral system

    Guess what. We knew the rules going in and lost.

    Wanna be frustrated ? Ask your party why

    They don't reach out. 40 states need more attention.

    Sadly they're not states where Dems leave with bags of money. Talk about your conflicts of interest. Lmao.

    Probably very little. Sure she could have spent more time in the rust belt states, but Trump was promising them jobs by reopening factories and blasting trade agreements. She was too honest in that regard. She listened, did her homework, consulted with many, many experts and came up with a comprehensive set of proposals on every issue of the day. However, the con artist and entertainer won the day by controlling the media and the messaging. It is more of an indictment against American voters and the "for profit media" than an indictment against her.

    I'll add a reference to what Trump wrote about the media in his book, The Art of the Deal.

    “One thing I’ve learned about the press is they’re always hungry for a good story, and the more sensational, the better. It’s in the nature of the job, and I understand that. The point is that if you are a little different, or a little outrageous, or if you do things that are bold or controversial, the press is going to write about you.”

    “I don’t mind controversy, and my deals tend to be somewhat ambitious,” he added. “The result is that the press has always wanted to write about me.”

    And, the more outrageous he can sound when he talks, and how absurd he can get, the media will give him every second of attention, that's how he did during the campaign, it was free, free, free, and to him, at the time, there wasn't any fake news, they gave him hours upon hours of free media airtime, just as they're doing today.

    If the media could, (they will not though) they should totally ignore anything and everything he says, treat him like a child in a grocery store screaming and shouting, just ignore him, eventually, the kid shuts his mouth because nobody is listening.

    Again Jared right on ; yes Democrats are way too nice and want the best for the people; but the "stupid" part of the people here want "sensation" instead of common sense as well facts and reality of life.

    100% percent correct. Nice and polite minority.

    (10 times a day) that Democrats are reaching

    Out to dissatisfied citizens and doing massive

    Voter registration ? Yeah, didn't hear about it.

    They are! Just because 24/7 media outlets don't report on it doesn't mean it's not happening. If you rely on cable news for all your information about the Democratic Party then you are never going to be happy.

    The cable "news" business is about shock journalism trying to get as many clicks and TV viewership as humanly possible because it is a profit driven industry that thrives on conflict.

    The problem in this country, as Schmidt has often pointed out, is voter apathy. Millions more people watch "Dancing With the Stars" than the nightly news. At some point we have to look in the mirror and admit that we, the American people are the problem.
