The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6. (see tre

So these numbers translate nicely to 31 percent of all Blacks? Doesn't say but why not paste your findings please
Of course Rasmussen did a much better job then most polls in predicting the 2016 results.

As for the poll numbers for African Americans you need to go to the Rasmussen page to see how they got them. One thing I can say for sure is that they did not extrapolate those numbers from any other numbers - they are measured data.

And one final note, the key to the African American Trump approval numbers isn't so much the exact number - 31% is high and may or may not be correct. But the upward movement of Trump's approval among Blacks over the last year is REAL and has been seen in several polls.

Maybe just like that black woman in Cleveland that because she felt Obama gave her a phone she voted for him, there are now black people that will vote for Trump because they feel Trump gave them a chance to have a job that is more than min. wage and part-time. What is that unemployment rate at now?

Looks like the military parade is running slightly over budget

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/16/trum...estimated.html

Quote:
The parade, slated for Nov. 10, is estimated to cost $92 million, the official said. The figure consists of $50 million from the Pentagon and $42 million from interagency partners such as the Department of Homeland Security. An initial estimate last month pegged the prospective cost for the parade at $12 million.

Party pooping deficit hawks want to spoil the parade.

On the list of expenses where we need to tighten our belts the "parade" is at # 1,007,452 - just after cancelling a study on the sex lives of cicadas!

Well in his defense he has to have an ever changed opinion on things, it's the only way to be able to always support Trump at a given moment. It's also why he invented the who gotcha thing.

Rasmussen was the MOST accurate polling firm with respect to the 2016 presidential election.

Please make a note of this.

Gee NEO you're losing your touch a bit. Those three quotes you dug up are not inconsistent.

* This whole parade thing IS a Trump troll of left wing moon bats AND never Trump deficit hawk Fredo-cons! At the same time he obviously likes a bit of pomp & circumstance and why not celebrate our wonderful military!

* I'm sure private money is involved to some extent. But my guess is that the cost overruns are Trump making sure this is down right and is a spectacular salute to our armed forces. You deficit hawk Grinch's can whine all you want but we're having a PARADE!

* You guys are party poopers!

Great, so you stole the concept from someone else that didn't want to be held accountable. Kudos.

Nah, the GOTCHA concept seemed to arise spontaneously across the message board universe in response to overly anal posters who delighted in going back and regurgitating (often out of context) old posts in a weirdly obsessive effort to show inconsistencies in another posters positions.

Which is odd because you're the only one who plays that card out of the hundreds of posters I've come across on here. It takes a special kind of mindset to place the blame at the person pointing out the contradiction and not the one contradicting themselves. That's like saying you're playing gotcha every time you post about liberal hypocrisy.

This is all about Donald stroking his own fragile ego. As for why not celebrate our military? They don't want it, most former military members don't want it, and it's a yuge waste of money. Remember those South Korean war games that Trump said were a waste of money? That saved us about $14m. I guess in the world of the Donald fan club $14m is a waste but $92m is not.

On the bright side it looks like tanks are going to be involved now so we can really look like a 3rd world dictatorship parade! Bring the mobile ICBM prototypes out of mothballs and the look will be complete.

Midterms are coming up. The only better time to pay lip service to the term is when Democrats are in charge.

Hold the fake news presses!

Looks like the Trump military parade got a deferral (I can't take credit for that one) until 2019.

You will have to explain this one a tad further? Trump's parade is a "left" thing? Do not understand?

It is always the biggest puzzy that wants to act really tough with military parades and crazy tough guy tweets and such.

With the leaders in the Pentagon humiliating the President I fully anticipate him tweeting orders to move up the $92 M military parade to honor him. 3,2,1....

@EricTrump I truly hate disloyal people

The twitter response to Eric Trump (aka the dumbest Trump) is awesome. He is whining about loyalty...while his father barebacked a pornstar and cheated on his mother and all three of his wives.

To be clear what I meant is the whole attack on Trump for wanting to throw a military parade is being driven by the left & never Trumper's. At least on the left the opposition is based on an ideological difference and their view that it's unseemly to parade around military assets. I don't agree with it but it's a legit reason to oppose the parade. But the never Trump looser's hide behind deficit reduction to throw stones at Trump. I just can't stand that.

As an aside throughout history military parades have been used to demonstrate the power of a nation. It goes at least as far back as the Roman Empire - who were decidedly NOT puzzy's!

Sounds like the right move to me. You don't want to do it until you can do it right.

We might be winning the "tariff war" with China, at least according to Chinese media:

https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2018/....html?spref=tw

To find the news, I read the South China Morning Post, which is worried spitless that the Red Chinese economy will tank like its stock market has.

The newspaper is running a series of columns by panicked investors and experts.

Aidan Yao is senior emerging Asia economist at AXA Investment Managers.

Yao wrote, "China needs to put its house in order as the trade war goes from bad to worse."

He pointed out, "In contrast with the progress seen in United States-European Union negotiations, there are no signs of trade talks resuming between the US and China since the breakdown of negotiations in June."

Xu Yimiao is an independent China-based researcher.

Xu wrote, "China should cut its losses in the trade war by conceding defeat to Donald Trump."

He spared not Chairman Xi's regime.

"Beijing’s strategy of a tit-for-tat retaliation over tariffs has clearly failed. In fact, this strategy escalated the conflict. The direct retaliation after the US announced the first batch of 25 per cent tariffs on US$50 billion in Chinese goods (with the increase from US$34 billion just finalised and coming into effect on August 23) brought few benefits for China. If anything, it gave the US an excuse to plan for a new batch of tariffs covering US$200 billion in Chinese goods. To be fair, it is possible that the US would have escalated the conflict even if China had not retaliated, but whatever the case may be, China’s strategy did not work," Xu wrote.



To be fair the reality on the ground always favored Trump taking on China:

Here's the problem, we buy roughly $500 billion of their stuff. They buy only $125 billion or so of our stuff. We have four times as much to tariff as they do.

When was our last military parade? Do you think it’s a good thing to spend money on? How do we benefit from it ? We don’t already know we have the strongest military?
