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.

President Trump Didn´t Sign G7´s
Leftist Agenda — Smart Move

G7: President Trump created a quite a stir among the other Western leaders by refusing to sign the "communique" that capped the G7 summit. But he was right to do so. This is once again being styled as the crude, unnuanced American president refusing to accommodate himself to the much wiser leaders of Europe. In fact, he wisely refrained from signing what was an empty, far-left political document, which is typical of the G7 "consensus" that American presidents have gone along with for decades. We´re indebted to Susan Jones of CNSNews.com who pored over the entire tedious document from the Charlevoix G7 Summit

Politics: Rather than rooting on the strong economy, Democrats have taken to ignoring it, belittling it or, like Bill Maher did over the weekend, rooting for a recession. The extent to which Trump critics will go is truly mind-boggling. The unemployment rate is at 49-year lows overall, and lower than ever for African-Americans. Household incomes are at record highs. The U.S. reclaimed its No. 1 rank in competitiveness. Economists are revising their growth forecasts upward. Optimism is at levels not seen in more than a decade. Clearly the economy is doing well. And what´s more, the public is increasingly crediting President Trump

´Gig Economy´ Everybody Predicted?

Work: For decades experts proclaimed that technology was reshaping the workplace, and a "gig economy" was taking over. But a funny thing happened in the years since. Nothing. Along with the advent of personal computers, broadband internet and smartphones came predictions that the traditional employer-worker relationship would soon be a thing of past. Workers would increasingly become freelancers, and companies virtual. Telecommuting would be routine. In 1999, the Department of Labor predicted that the "traditional work arrangement (is) giving way to something fundamentally different" as companies shift to "just in time" workers. Kiplinger predicted in 2000 that 100 million U.S. workers would be

Entitlements: Social Security is like the classic children´s tale, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." So many warnings have been made, no one listens anymore. Well guess what? The wolf´s now at the door. Are you listening now? For the first time in 36 years, Social Security will take money out of its "trust fund" — an accounting fiction that would get you jailed for fraud in the private sector — to pay retirees. The truth is, Social Security is for all intents and purposes bankrupt. Since 2010, Social Security has been spending more than it took in, making up the difference by




´Sanctuary Cities´ Get A Big Thumbs Down,

Nearly two-thirds of the public oppose "sanctuary cities." Less than a third say they back the policy, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. The IBD/TIPP poll asked about support for a policy in which "some cities in the U.S. do not report illegal immigrants who commit crimes to federal immigration authorities." It found that 64% oppose the policy, with just 31% supporting it. More interesting, while just 16% strongly support sanctuary cities, 45% strongly oppose the policy. Every one of the 41 demographic groups broken out by the IBD/TIPP poll opposes this policy, except for Democrats (only 44% oppose) it, liberals (38% oppose) and

Politics: As soon as Howard Schultz announced his retirement from Starbucks on Monday, speculation began about his running for president in 2020 as a Democrat. But any hopes of his getting the party´s nomination likely died the very next day. During an interview on CNBC´s "Squawk Box" Tuesday, Schultz had this to say: "It concerns me that so many voices within the Democratic Party are going so far to the left. I say to myself, ´How are we going to pay for these things,´ in terms of things like single payer (and) people espousing the fact that the government is going to

Iran: One of the linchpins of former President Obama´s nuclear deal with Iran was that it would be accompanied by a near-ban on Iran having any access to the U.S. banking system. A new congressional report says that, too, was a lie. Obama and his officials at the Treasury Department and State Department were clear: They would work assiduously to freeze out Iran from getting dollars to fund its mischief and mayhem around the world. The Associated Press, puts it this way: "As the Treasury and State Department worked behind the scenes to help Iran access the dollar, the message to Congress

"Are you on the take?" When I tried to get Edgewater, New Jersey, politicians to answer that question, the mayor wouldn´t discuss it, ultimately telling me, "You may sit down." The town of Edgewater is right across the Hudson River from Manhattan. Anyone fortunate enough to live there gets a spectacular view of New York City´s skyline. But the Edgewater city government wants to seize a choice piece of waterfront land for itself. The spot in question is owned by a developer, the Maxal Group. Maxal bought the property for about $26 million and then spent millions more to clean it up. They planned to build apartments and, to please

Medicare Is On Death´s Door ... After
ObamaCare Supposedly Saved It

Health Care: The latest official report on Medicare´s financial status says it will be insolvent in 2026 — just eight years from now. So much for the promise that ObamaCare had fixed that program for the long term. When he signed ObamaCare into law in 2010, President Obama bragged repeatedly that ObamaCare´s combination of slowing down overall health spending, payment cuts to providers, improved productivity and quality, as well as less waste, fraud, and abuse would vastly extend Medicare´s solvency. He promised ObamaCare would guarantee that Medicare´s "sacred trust between America and its seniors … is never

The original slogan of Google was "Don´t be evil." When Google changed its corporate name to Alphabet (GOOGL) in 2015, it changed the slogan to "Do the right thing." If it were to be true to its values, Google should have changed its slogan from "Don´t be evil" to "Don´t fight evil." Here is The New York Times report from this past Friday: "Google, hoping to head off a rebellion by employees upset that the technology they were working on could be used for lethal purposes, will not renew a contract with the Pentagon for artificial intelligence work ...

Remember ObamaCare? The fight is far from over on the future of the Obama-era health insurance overhaul. Republicans are making a last-ditch effort this year to turn the program and the money over to the state. This isn´t full Obamacare repeal, but it would make a world of sense. States would be free to experiment and find ways to reduce costs and provide better services. Democrats are adopting a new political spin, which is that everything is fine with ObamaCare. They claim that the only reason premium and deductible costs keep exploding is because President Donald Trump repealed the individual mandate

Business and Politics: Costco Wholesale Corp. announced late last week that it´s giving raises to 130,000 employees, thanks to the Trump tax cuts. This is the company, mind you, whose founders openly backed tax-hiking Hillary Clinton for president. Why not admit that they picked the wrong horse? Costco (COST) boosted its minimum wage $1 an hour — to $14 — and gave its other hourly employee wages raises of up to 50 cents an hour. That´s an annual increase of up to $2,000. Crumbs to Nancy Pelosi, but real money to a middle-class family on a budget. The company said it was

Actor Robert De Niro repeatedly declared “F— Trump” while speaking onstage at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, and promptly received a standing ovation. The profanity was bleeped out in the live broadcast, but tweets from attendees and reporters confirmed De Niro’s remarks. “I’m going to say one thing: ‘F— Trump,’” said the actor, who was presenting an award at the ceremony. “It’s no longer ‘down with Trump,´ it’s ‘f— Trump.’” The audience then erupted in cheers and stood clapping. DeNiro has been one of Trump’s harshest critics in the entertainment industry.

Mitt Romney is preparing to become a major figure in the Republican Party next year, laying the groundwork to become spokesman of the Republican Party establishment that´s been steamrolled since the election of President Donald Trump. The former presidential candidate is widely expected to win Utah´s Senate election in November and has already let party leaders know he intends to make a splash upon his taking of the oath of office in January, Politico reported. He´s expressed an interest in joining the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee and wants to work on spending issues. But the most delicate issue he´s likely to deal with

Poor John McCain. The Arizona senator, who’s battling terminal brain cancer, thinks someone died and made him the leader of the free world. Proving that he’s determined to be a thorn in President Trump’s side even on his deathbed, McCain once again tried to undermine the billionaire by slamming the tariffs Trump slapped on China and Canada (you know, like the ones they charge on American goods).(Snip)For the record, a senator does not make U.S. trade policy, nor does he speak for all Americans. McCain was reacting to President Trump’s controversial announcement that the U.S. will impose tariffs on some imports from

Los Angeles Times contributor Virginia Heffernan believes Robert De Niro deserve a Pulitzer prize for dropping an F-bomb at the Tony Awards Sunday night, adding that the outburst from the aging Hollywood heavyweight was just what the ceremony needed. “I can’t stop thinking about that swift, incisive editorial last night.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday expressed regret over eating at Chick-fil-A, because of the chicken company’s CEO’s personal views on gay marriage. Dorsey tweeted a screenshot from his phone that showed a purchase he had made at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. After a liberal backlash, however, Dorsey apologized for eating at the popular fast food restaurant. At issue was Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s 2012 support for defining marriage as between a man and a woman, which he described as “the biblical definition of a family.”(Snip for angry graphics) Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien was among those to call out Dorsey

President Obama has reportedly met with 2020 hopefuls and is advising members of the Democratic Party about how to run against President Trump. A source close to Mr. Obama told CNN he has met with Sen. Bernard Sanders, Vermont independent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and former Attorney General Eric Holder. According to the unnamed source, Mr. Obama spends time during the meetings “on how to respond to the president, positioning and broader challenges with the party.” A few others who have met with Mr. Obama,

On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ripped the Supreme Court’s decision to rule in favor of the “Use it or Lose it” voter registration process, saying it would “disenfranchise” voters. (Tweets) But as Dan McLaughlin pointed out in a comprehensive piece at National Review, the court’s narrow 5-4 decision in Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute only resolved a narrow point of federal statutory law: The Court was not asked to decide if states are allowed to purge names from the voter rolls. Federal law requires them to do so. That law, the National Voter Registration Act of 1993,

At the G7 summit in Quebec this weekend, President Trump said that Russia should be readmitted into the international group of leaders and blamed the Obama administration for its response to Russia´s invasion of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. On Sunday, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice called his comments a "disgraceful statement." Russia was expelled from the then-G8 in 2014 as punishment for its aggression. "The fact of the matter is Russia had invaded Georgia. It then invaded Ukraine. We rallied the entire EU and many other partners to impose tough sanctions on Russia for its annexation," Rice told CBS´

As President Donald Trump prepares to meet Kim Jong Un of North Korea to negotiate denuclearization, a challenge that has bedeviled the world for years, he is doing so without the help of a White House science adviser or senior counselor trained in nuclear physics. Trump is the first president since 1941 not to name a science adviser, a position created during World War II to guide the Oval Office on technical matters ranging from nuclear warfare to global pandemics. As a businessman and president, Trump has proudly been guided by his instincts. Nevertheless, people who have participated in past nuclear

If your household is anything like the American average, your diet generates lots of greenhouse gas emissions: roughly the same amount in a single week, a new study finds, as a drive from D.C. to Trenton. Food requires huge amounts of energy to grow. It must be transported from farms in rail cars or semi trucks. Then it is processed, packaged, stored, shelved, cooked and delivered - a complex industrial supply chain that generates an estimated 16 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, according to a study in the journal Food Policy. But consumers can make small daily changes to

IHOP said on Monday that it´s temporarily changing its branding because the B stands for burgers. It´s only a marketing campaign. IHOP isn´t changing its name. But the chain of breakfast diners took social media by storm last week with the cryptic announcement that it was flipping the lowercase "p" in its logo and making it a "b." IHOP, of course, stands for International House of Pancakes. But IHOP — sorry, IHOb — wants to be known as a place to get lunch and dinner, not just breakfast and brunch. It´s adding several burgers to its menu, including a Big Brunch burger with bacon, a fried egg and browned potato on top.
