Trump Favorability at 50% and Climbing

http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/ar...ses-poll-shows

Bloomberg, which at best has been lukewarm toward Trump, ran a poll with a series of questions about Trump. One of the questions was view of Trump now, and it is up to 50% favorable, which is a number many said he could never reach. He will likely exceed it early in his term, as the American people generally rally behind a new POTUS and give them the benefit of the doubt. I have no idea what he will do, but he already doesn't seem like a POTUS who is willing to wait around for things to happen. It seems he is going to try to spur things to happen. It will be fascinating to watch, because if he is successful he might just very well re-write the definition of politics and government in this nation. He is an elite and a business world insider, with many dealings with politicos during his time, BUT he is a true outsider in DC and is not a professional politician. Might have to go back to Ike for the last POTUS who was not a trained politician, though Ike certainly had a military job that exposed him deeply to the political world.

Frankly this is amazing especially considering that the media is still doing a hatchet job on Trump EVERY day!

And if Trump keeps creating JOBS, he may be pushing 60% before to long!

He does a pretty decent job of trying to destroy his own influence but that's besides the question. It sells. It sells to those of like mind, it sells to those opposed. Non-controversy, doesn't sell. It's not journalism anymore than any of the pundits are journalists. Theyre in the entertainment business.

Seems rather obvious as I look at it. WE ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU COULD NOT WIN A BATTLE AGAINST THOSE WHO BOUGHT INK BY THE BARREL. At least that is what Mark Twain believed and evidence bore out time after time that to pick a fight with the press meant doom for any politician.

Now Trump arrives on stage and a media who believes they control who America will select by the mere indorsement of their favorite candidate proves them wrong. He not only survives their backing of the other candidate, he attacks them and his ratings go Up!

Then the total bomb explodes on the media when they realize Trump has figured out he can get his own message out to the masses using social media. That one hurt the most, it places media elites in a tenuous position of unneeded in political discussions, and will undoubtedly lead to a further decline of media related jobs. Hitting them in their pocket is the surest way to make enemies, not to mention the personal embarrassment he brought to their fragile egos.

In addition to the reasons sited above, Trump is a PC fanatics worst nightmare. The man is a living, breathing, walking, talking & tweeting destroyer of ALL things politically correct. Much of the media infrastructure, from reporters to news readers to editors to producers, has been educated in the smothering bosom of PC. They actually believe in the PC nonsense that has been drilled into their heads. Hell, half of the modern media are full blown Social Justice Warriors! To them Trump is the anti-christ!

Oh please. Did it ever occur to you guys on the left that you throw around words like "bigot" & "racist" so much they no longer have any meaning. Not to long ago simply charging someone with "bigotry" or "racism" was enough to destroy their professional life. Not anymore.

If someone is a bigot, or a racist, or a sexist, then I will call them one. The resulting number of times, whether it has to be one time or one hundred times is irrelevant to me.

Donald Trump is a bigot, a racist, and a sexist.

I'm not going to back off of that just because people think that they can try to deflect from it under the pathetic and flimsy cover of "political correctness gone rampant".

I disagree.

I'll state it again : Donald Trump is a bigot, a racist, and a sexist.

I'll even go one further : Many of the people who voted for him are also bigots, racists, and sexists.

Some views are not to be tolerated, and I make no apology for that. That's not bigotry. That's standing up to people who must to be stopped.

In contrast to the weak statements from Democratic "leadership" about giving these monsters "a chance", I have absolutely zero interest in giving any quarter.

There are just as many bigots and racist who voted for Hillary. Trump isn't a bigot, racist or sexist. He employs plenty of blacks or other races. He employs plenty of women. He likes women like 97% of all males. He isn't a bigot because he is actually interviewing people who disagree with him on some issues. I know you guys like to use those terms to shut down real conversations. But it is overplayed and it just simply don't work anymore.

Nonsense.

I'll say it again : Trump is a bigot, a racist, and a sexist. I'll say it as many times as I need to.

You can try to deflect, wriggle, go off on tangents about Hillary Clinton, move the goalposts, try to redefine words, or whatever else you want to do, but I am completely unmoved.

The barbarians have breached the gate. Time for scorched earth.

Mud has difficulty with basic definitions of words and stuff...which makes the smug pseudo-intellectual shtick difficult to pull of successfully.

My statement stands.

Donald Trump is a bigot, a racist, and a sexist.

Your failure to recognize this makes me wonder about you.

I am a realist not a wishy washy socialist. Trump is also a realist who loves trolling the weak minded like yourself.

Attempt to "reframe" it any way that you want.

I think the incredible rise in the stock market since the election may play a role in the uptick of Trump's favorabilty ratinngs.

Give them enough time, and the bigots reveal themselves. I guess Uncle Ted settled any question about his own problems.

I'm not "accepting" anything. I will be doing everything that I can to contribute to protesting, stalling, thwarting, whatever, Trump's four years (or less) of being President. I am not the only one who feels this way. Get ready for a massive attempt to grind the clown show to a standstill.

No, it really doesn't. Donald Trump has many problems but you ain't hit him yet.

Doesn't matter how many times you say it, it's not true.
