And then there are those who say "I don't watch the news" in an effort to avoid discussion about the disaster they helped create with their vote. Then they will sometimes slip and say "I saw the story about that murder nearby on the news" so they really do watch the news and since most of it is all about the Dotard, they are basically FOS. Some of these people are my relatives and friends. :brickwallsmall:

Those figures make one wonder what percentage of the American electorate still identify as 'Republican'.

I just spent a weekend with three of my cousins. All are white college grads over the age of 65. One is a US citizen domiciled in Germany. That makes four white college grads, all of the opinion that Thump is unfit for office. Kindly change that statistic to 100% unfit for office. :thumbs:

There’s people up here who only watch the local news and/or read the local paper. There’s rarely any national news on the TV local news, and only 3-4 political stories in the paper. We joke that you can tell how slow a newsday is by how many New Hampshire or Massachusetts stories make it in.

The "never any news on the TV" is a good thing, in my opinion. No TV at all is better still ;)

It's shocking that one group can see things so differently. But if you spend 15 minutes watching Fox "news", it all starts to make sense. They really are living in a different reality and it has nothing to do with spin or news with a conservative view.

What irritates me about these pols is that one data point is consistently not reported.

Only 25% of the 1,000 people surveyed self identified as Republican.

WaPo - Greg Sargent
The anti-Trump backlash is gathering force. These new polls confirm it.

The anti-Trump backlash is about to collide violently with the GOP’s structural, counter-majoritarian advantages in this election — and the winner of the clash will decide whether President Trump will be subjected to genuine oversight or will effectively be given even freer reign to unleash more corruption and more authoritarianism, while expanding his cruel, ethnonationalist and plutocratic agenda.

Three new polls this morning confirm that this anti-Trump backlash is running strong, with less than two months to go until the midterm elections:
A new Quinnipiac University poll finds that Democrats have opened up a 14-point lead in the battle for the House, 52-38. Voters want Congress to be more of a check on Trump by 58 percent to 27 percent.

A new CNN poll finds that Americans approve of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation by 50-38, a new high in CNN polling. By 61-33, Americans say it is examining a “serious matter that should be fully investigated,” as opposed to the “witch hunt” that Trump rage-tweeted about again this morning.

A new NPR/Marist poll finds that Democrats lead by 12 points in the battle for the House, 50-38. Trump’s approval is at 39-52, making this the fifth recent poll to put Trump below 40 percent.

Daily Beast
Trump Says His Accomplishments Are Great. The Public Isn’t Buying It.

As he gears up for a difficult midterm election, President Donald Trump has campaigned on a record of massive accomplishments: a nuke deal with North Korea, the death of Obamacare and a sweeping tax reform package that has benefited America’s middle class.

Much of it is Trumpian embellishment. And a new Ipsos poll conducted for The Daily Beast shows that the public, simply put, isn’t buying it.

In the poll, only 6 percent of respondents said they believe North Korea had “destroyed its stockpile of nuclear weapons in the last year;” 68 percent said the country had not; and 26 percent said they don’t know. Trump has claimed that North Korea is “no longer a nuclear threat” though international inspectors say it is still building its arsenal. Those who have not bought the president’s line include his fellow Republicans, 66 percent of whom said that North Korea had, in fact, not destroyed its stockpile.

The survey also asked whether the Affordable Care Act had “been fully repealed.” Just 6 percent of respondents believed—erroneously—that that was the case while 70 percent said that was false and 23 percent said they did not know. Among Democrats, 76 percent said that the law known as Obamacare had not been fully repealed and among Republicans, 75 percent said the same. President Trump has oscillated in his approach to the subject at campaign rallies. More often than not, he criticizes the deceased Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) whose last-minute “no” vote sunk the Senate’s repeal effort. But because the individual mandate was repealed as part of the Republican tax reform package, he often concludes that the ACA was “essentially dead.”

The Ipsos survey also asked voters whether the aftermath of Hurricane Maria was “handled well by the government.” Just 18 percent said that it was while 60 percent said it was not and 22 percent said they did not know. Trump has said his administration has done a “fantastic job” in Puerto Rico and cast doubt on the number of people killed in the storm. Only 39 percent of Republicans said his government did a good job in the storm’s aftermath.

Poll: Americans worry U.S. is losing allies, support for global engagement rises

Americans reject key elements of President Trump’s “America First” agenda, expressing near-record support for global engagement amid widespread worries that the United States is losing allies around the world, according to a poll from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

The newly released survey shows majorities offering positive attitudes about the value of international trade, the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear agreement. A majority also agrees the United States should make concessions to other U.N. countries in the conduct of foreign affairs. Notably, support for these views has increased since a similar poll taken a year ago, with several attitudes changing among Republicans and independents as well as Democrats. ...

The survey, conducted in July among 2,046 U.S. adults, found that 70 percent of Americans say it is best for the United States to take an active part in world affairs, up from 63 percent in 2017 and 58 percent in 2014. At the same time, 57 percent say that this country has been losing allies over the past year, while 56 percent say relations between the United States and other countries have been worsening in general.

On Monday, Trump touted Mexico and Canada’s agreement to modify the North American Free Trade Agreement, which he had labeled one of the worst trade deals in U.S. history. The survey found support for the original deal rising from 53 percent last year to 63 percent this summer, the highest level in Chicago Council surveys since 2004.

Taken together, the two polls point to a troubling trend: The president is leading a foreign policy strategy that few people on Earth want him to pursue.

Newsweek
Majority of Americans Disagree with Trump's 'America First' Message: Poll

President Donald Trump has made his “America First” platform the centerpiece of his administration's policy efforts and his campaign for reelection, but a new poll shows that the majority of Americans don’t quite agree with the sentiment.

A new Pew poll found that 55 percent of Americans believe that “the U.S. should take into account the interests of its allies in foreign policy, even if it means making compromises with them.” About 38 percent of respondents believed that the U.S. should follow its own national interests, “even when its allies strongly disagree.” ...

The Pew survey found that a slight majority of adults, 51 percent, in the U.S. do believe that other countries treat America unfairly while 42 percent say that “other countries treat the U.S. about as fairly as we treat them." But that number has shifted dramatically from where it was in the 1990s, when 70 percent of adults said they believed that other countries were taking advantage of the U.S.

“These changes are largely attributable to a shift in views among Democrats and Democratic leaners,” said Pew. “In 1999, about two-thirds of Democrats (68 percent) said other countries often take unfair advantage of the U.S.; just 28 percent say that today.”

The national survey was conducted by the Pew Research Center on September 18-24 among 1,754 adults, including 1,439 registered voters.
