Trump Approval Edges Up As Financial
Stress Hits New Low: IBD/TIPP Poll

Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 3/6/2018 7:34:12 AM

President Trump´s approval rating gained two points in March, bringing his approval rating to 37%, the highest approval rating for Trump since last September. The March poll also found that the level of financial stress in the country has reached a new low. While Trump´s approval rating edged up, his disapproval rating remained unchanged from last month at 58%. His favorability rating was unchanged from February at -19 (38% viewing his leadership favorably vs. 57% who view him unfavorably). The IBD/TIPP Presidential Leadership Index remained essentially unchanged at 39.9. This index combines survey questions on the president´s leadership, favorability and job approval. Trump

What´s the difference between "favorability" ratings and "approval" ratings? Seems to me Trump´s favorability was a good bit higher in another poll. I don´t get this and frankly, don´t believe it.

I only know that President Donald J. Trump is the one who so-generously dedicated his time, effort, and fortune to stopping the decline of America... and has given us hope.

The Worst Part Of The GOP´s Massive $1.3
Trillion Spending Bill Is What´s Not In It

Big Spenders: Some Republicans are complaining that they don´t know what´s in the massive $1.3 trillion "omnibus" spending bill they will be voting on this week. But it´s what´s not in the bill that´s the most troubling. Republicans used to love to tout around copies of ObamaCare, pointing out how its massive size — around 2,300 pages — was a sign of runaway government. The spending bill Congress will approve this week is nearly as big, weighing in at 2,232 pages. And, like ObamaCare, no one who votes on it will have read the bill before casting their ballots. Then there´s the amount

Trade: President Trump´s decision to slap tariffs of $50 billion of imports from China for that nation´s routine theft of American intellectual property may well be a political masterstroke that results in U.S. companies getting fairer treatment from China. But, as a long-term answer to our economic differences, it comes up far short. China didn´t wait long. It immediately imposed trade restrictions on 128 U.S. goods, including "wine, fresh frutit dried fruit and nuts, steel pipes, modified ethanol and ginseng," according to CNBC. While just $3 billion in U.S. sales are affected, a Chinese government statement said it would hit other U.S.

Heath Reform: After promising voters for eight years that they´d get rid of ObamaCare at their first opportunity, why would Republicans even consider dumping tens of billions of taxpayer dollars to bail it out? This week, Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander and Democratic Sen. Patty Murray made another attempt to get their bipartisan ObamaCare "stability" bill tacked on to a massive spending bill Congress must approve by the end of the week to keep government operating. The details of the bill are shocking, given that they amount to a wholesale surrender on ObamaCare. Among them: It would resuscitate ObamaCare´s temporary "reinsurance" program for at

Obama Scandal: Former President Obama and his political supporters have repeatedly stated that his administration was scandal-free, unlike administrations before and after. "We´re probably the first administration in modern history that hasn´t had a major scandal in the White House," Obama himself said. A new book puts the lie to that statement. Never mind that the left-leaning big media basically ignored major scandals during the Obama years, ranging from the IRS targeting scandal and the VA´s deadly waiting lists for veterans to Hillary Clinton´s illegal use of an unsecured, hackable home-brew server for her official duties as secretary of state and

The Center for American Progress, one of the nation´s most influential left-wing think tanks, just released a plan to repeal Obamacare. Unfortunately, the proposal would replace the law with something even worse — single-payer health care. CAP´s plan would impose single-payer gradually, over a period of at least eight years. But the end result is clear — doctors and hospitals would end up having to ration care. The progressive ideologues at CAP tacitly admit that Obamacare´s exchanges haven´t delivered affordable insurance. So they propose to close them. In their place, the government would automatically enroll everyone who previously had individual

Welfare Reform: Thanks to a revived economy spinning out jobs, the number of people on food stamps dropped by 2 million people last year, according to a new report. That´s great news, both for those who are leaving food stamps and for taxpayers. And more can — and should — be done. Those who get Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits declined from 44.219 million in 2016 to 42.182 million by the end of last year, a drop of just over 2 million or about 4.6% in one year, the Washington Free Beacon reports. In a back of the envelope calculation,

Is James Comey A Serial Liar?

Scandal: When President Trump accused former FBI director James Comey of lying under oath in a tweet on Saturday, defenders rushed to Comey´s aid. But Comey has been saying a lot of things that are decidedly fact challenged. Trump´s tweet was sparked by a statement made by Comey´s deputy, Andrew McCabe, after he was fired at the recommendation of the FBI´s Office of Professional Responsibility. McCabe had been accused of misleading an inspector general investigation about leaking information to the press about the Hillary Clinton investigation. In his statement, McCabe forcefully defended his contact with the media, denying that it could even be

FBI Scandal: The outrage and self-righteous posturing over the fact that fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe might lose his FBI pension is misplaced. What´s truly outrageous is how large and lavish government benefits have become. McCabe´s lucky: At least three congressional Democrats have already stepped up to offer the disgraced former No. 2 FBI official jobs in their offices — hey, it´s not their money, right? — so he can qualify for a full pension. This is being sold as an act of compassion for someone left destitute after 22 years of loyal service. But the fact is, McCabe isn´t

Privacy: Facebook faces what some are calling an "existential crisis" over revelations that its user data fell into the hands of the Trump campaign. Whether or not the attacks on the social media giant are justified, the fact is that the Obama campaign used Facebook (FB) data in the same way in 2012. But the reaction from the pundits and press back then was, shall we say, somewhat different. According to various news accounts, a professor at Cambridge University built a Facebook app around 2014 that involved a personality quiz. About 270,000 users of the app agreed to share some

Coverage Of Political Protests

The leftist-organized wave of school walkouts on March 14 to protest gun violence is a classic example of the way protests are categorized by our news and entertainment media. 1. Liberal protests are authentic cries from the grass roots; conservative protests are "AstroTurf." How homegrown were these liberal walkouts? They were organized weeks ago by the Women´s March on Washington leftists. Liberal parents forced school administrators to knuckle under and allow the walkouts without punishment. They were supported by passionate media coverage and media conglomerates like Viacom, which dedicated 17 minutes of airtime to show solidarity. So, was this organized political activism?

Cold War 2.0? To anyone with any sense, it´s now painfully obvious that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin isn´t merely a pest, but a menace. His government´s recent nerve gas attacks on former Russian citizens in Britain and threats over Syria underscore a growing threat. For years, Democrats in the U.S. have refused to take the old USSR or Putin and the "New Russia" seriously. From the late Sen. Ted Kennedy´s treasonous overture to the former Soviet Union to help undercut and defeat Ronald Reagan, to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s inane "reset button," to President Obama signaling he would be

Markets: The morning after President Trump´s economic adviser Gary Cohn resigned in early March, stocks dropped amid concern that Trump was losing a free-market advisor. So, it´s worth noting that they jumped the morning after Trump announced he´d hired Larry Kudlow as Cohn´s replacement. Anyone who has followed Kudlow — whose columns have appeared in IBD for many years — already knows why he´s a smart choice. With a pedigree as a private-sector economist — he was chief economist at Bear Sterns — Kudlow understands the real-world impact of economic policies better than most ivory tower, prize-winning academics. For decades, Kuldow has been

Hillary Clinton continues to attack President Trump while abroad, this time during an interview with a Dutch news network. During the interview, which took place on March 13, Clinton alleged that Trump is undermining the presidency in exchange for personal and familial gain. “He has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family,” Clinton said. “Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” “He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic, that are undermining the stability of the global order,” she continued. Clinton came under fire last week during a trip to India when she

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

Fully half of registered voters surveyed in a new poll say they´re ´embarrassed´ to have Donald Trump as president. Just three in 10 are ´proud.´ Fifty-five per cent believe the commander-in-chief does not have ´a sense of decency.´ Fifty-seven percent told pollsters the president is ´not honest.´ And a whopping 67 per cent – more than 2 out of every 3 voters – feel he´s a poor role model for children.

Actors and athletes increasingly using their forums for political activism are turning off viewers, according to a newly released poll. A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

One of my liberal friends admitted to me recently that there is a certain virtue to losing gracefully. She was referencing her disappointment with the mean-spirited salvos Hillary Clinton delivered during her recent visit to India, an outburst closer to being disgraceful than full of grace. I’ve been trying to figure Hillary out for almost a half century, ever since I found myself part of an alumnae audience listening to the Wellesley Class of 1969’s graduation spokesperson -- known then as Hillary Rodham -- erupt in condescending anger at the commencement’s guest speaker. Even all those years ago, it was

Based on the latest U.S. Census Bureau statistics from July 2016 to July 2017, Californians are leaving the state in droves. As Jed Kolko, chief economist with employment website Indeed.com, pointed out regarding the data, "The rate at which California has been losing people to other states has accelerated in the past couple of years, in part because of rising housing costs … more people moved out of California to other states than moved in from other states. In other words, California lost people due to domestic migration."There are apparently three prime destinations for the migrating Californians: Texas, Arizona, and

A couple years ago, salmon passed tuna as the most popular fish in the United States. Our doctors have told us to eat more of it; our fitness and diet regimens have put it in heavy menu rotation. The problem is not all salmon is created equal. More than 90 percent of the fresh salmon eaten in this country comes from giant fish farms, and those farms have problems. Big ones. Here are the facts about America’s favorite fish that you should know but perhaps wish you didn’t. • Large-scale salmon farms in the United States, Canada, Scotland, Norway and Chile have

Chief of Staff John Kelly is reportedly furious after someone in President Trump´s national security inner circle leaked sensitive information to the press yesterday. The leak, which came Tuesday afternoon, revealed that President Trump was advised not to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on his re-election campaign. That information came out in media reports after Trump revealed during a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House that he had congratulated Putin during a phone call. "I had a call with President Putin and congratulated him on the victory -- his electoral victory. The call had to do,

White House officials said Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign a hotly contested budget bill when lawmakers send it to him, despite the fact that it provides for only 33 miles of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump vowed in April 2017 that his long-promised border wall would be finished by the end of his first term in office. ´It´s certainly going to – yeah,´ he told reporters then, answering a specific question about a four-year timeline and adding that ´we have plenty of time.´ But at the rate the White House has agreed to, the project could stretch through more
