Poll Shocker: Trump Ties With ‘Unnamed Socialist’

Original Article

Posted By: PageTurner, 7/10/2019 6:16:50 AM

The headline out of the recent Washington Post/ABC News poll was that President Trump’s approval ratings had hit an all-time high. Trump and his supporters were happy about that. But the real news was buried in the poll and went largely overlooked by the press. And it should terrify everyone. The poll found that Trump’s approval rating climbed five points to 44%, his best showing ever in that poll. Most polls have, in fact, shown Trump’s approval edging up. The Real Clear Politics average has him at 44.6%. It was below 43% a month ago. Gallup’s tracking poll has Trump within a few points of where President Obama was

Has anyone yet come out publicly to describe what socialism really is? Don’t you think it would be wise to ask socialists and others what they are talking about when they advocate socialism? How many people think that socialism means that everybody is nice, social, as it were, to each other and that everybody is equal? How many people know the horrors of socialism? Why don’t media ask this question of everybody who claims to be a socialist and those who advocate for it?

“Here’s an even better idea. Start insisting that reporters and educators tell the truth about socialism. Namely, that no matter how it’s dressed up, socialism always produces the same result: Widespread, grinding misery and oppression.” How are we supposed to make them tell the truth? Victorious war is the only fix for this social malady. We’re too far gone for persuasive dialoging.

Very much of this has to do with the media promoting these socialist ideas. The free press in this nation has become a clear and ever present danger to the survival of America. Little wonder they "worry" about a strong President. They truly need to be taken down "a few notches."

Yesterday, I heard on a radio station in Connecticut that - in a recent poll - a number of those called thought that socialism meant that the people who practice it were sociable people. Many of those polled also believe that socialism would make everything fair for everyone. I think they believe it would be The Government that would make everything fair for all. And if it is a Washington Post/ABC poll, I totally distrust it.

This does not surprise me on bit. The 'unnamed' socialist represents an ideal, however flawed it may be. When it comes to putting a real person as the face of that ideal, the cracks will appear. For now, the 'unnamed' socialist has no background issues, no off-putting social traits, does not grate on the nerves and ears, and has not been found unable to answer the question 'WHO is going to pay for all of this?'. I am shocked it is not HIGHER than 50% to be frank.

"But the real news was buried in the poll and went largely overlooked by the press. And it should terrify everyone." Ahhh more objective unbiased reporting by the MSM. Why should news that a very popular, at least by a fairly large part of the population, which is never how it is reported, president has climbed in the biased polls, "Should Terrify Everyone". I always look to the fruit and see how well the children of other folks have grown up. So far as I can tell, and of course the majority of us including the press, really don't know the Trump family personally, the Trump kids, by all of his wives and he is far from the only man of power and wealth who indulge their ability to sample the delights of physical sexuality available to them, but back to the kids, what one sees and hears seems to find the children of all of the wives largely respecting and working with their father well. They are not little carbon copies and some hold more liberal social views than I do but that in and of itself is not a problem. They all seem to respect and honor their dad and support his attempts to straighten out the problems that have arisen from decades of Liberal rule.

Socialism: A political system/scam based on greed and envy wherein the political 'leadership' takes the money of people who have actually worked for it in order to give it those who haven't, after they've skimmed their 90% off the top. Don't think that isn't the case or it's an exaggeration, because it isn't.

In a nation like our great Republic this should never be a poll question. If Socialism is so wonderful the likes of Bernie Sanders et al would be in Venezuela fixing or basking in the utopian dream. That goes for all socialist leaning liberals who enjoy their capitalism like Bernie Sanders.

Obama's polls were either all fiction or they interviewed only blacks or old white women who thought he was cute. Any real American with common sense knew that he was a half-wit who was more interested in hitting golf balls and spending our money on vacations and campaigning for himself. His teleprompter was smarter than he was. Paying attention to hostile MSM-backed polling for President Trump is a complete waste of time because they fudge the data worse than the global warming cult does. The 2016 election was the prime example of the uselessness of polls and the Harpy they were attempting to help learned that lesson the hard way. The snowflakes who support socialism are as stupid as the candidates who are fraudulently or naively promoting it. Nobody wins in a socialist country except the dictator who controls the money and the military. If one of those clowns wins the election it will be - Bienvenida a Venezuela Norte!

The plan to deport about one million illegal aliens announced by Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli is not a matter of discretion. Cuccinelli is just following the law, and already issued court orders. Those subject to deportation under the plan have already had their cases adjudicated in the United States, with immigration judges ruling they have lost their cases, and ordering them deported. Cuccinelli is just the first federal official, besides President Trump, brave enough to follow and implement the law. That is what President Trump pledged to do

House Democrats, resistant to reason, continue to press for a minimum-wage hike even though a government report says it could cost as many as 3.7 million jobs. The party of the “working man” seems to have no problem throwing low-wage workers out on the streets. The bill, which is headed to a floor vote, would increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour over five years. The Congressional Budget Office says it could kill as many as 3.7 million jobs, with a median estimate of 1.3 million, should it become law. (To be fair, the low estimate is roughly zero job losses,

The leftist women's World Cup team has made a lot of noise about wanting more pay, or pay that's equal to the men's teams, yet already the economics of the picture shows that they're actually overpaid. This isn't something unfixable - more ticket sales, more team memorabilia revenue, more television watchers, more public interest would correct that easily, and it's clear that star players such as Megan Rapinoe know it.

With its monopoly on the legitimate use of force, government gets its way. Just as gangsters do – with the ever-present knowledge that non-compliance will be met by people ready to use force if necessary. The purported difference between governments and gangsters is that the former are supposed to be subject to the rule of law and operating “in the public interest,” while the latter are only out to enrich themselves. But in California’s state government, one party control and the lack of media scrutiny and public attention has led to the capture of control over tax revenues by so-called “public servants.”

Venezuela is in a stalemate. Ruled as a colony by its Cuban masters with a little puppet leader in the persona of Nicolás Maduro, it's as bad an economic shambles as Cuba is, and as with Cuba, millions of its people are fleeing. The United Nations declared it a death-squad regime, with 7,000 documented killings of dissidents. There's a legitimate leader in the legislative declaration of Juan Guaidó as president, but the man is powerless without an army to command and sadly fading to irrelevance. But there's not nothing going on. Francisco Toro at the Washington Post has a powerful warning that the Venezuelan vacuum

I suppose I should be thrilled that the U.S. Women's soccer team won its second world title but I confess to rooting for all their opponents during the games. I don't particularly care for soccer anyway but it was the purple-haired star player Megan Rapinoe who turned me off by spouting her disdain for any White House visit before she was even asked. Did she do that for publicity or was her Trump derangement too deeply entrenched? Stomping on the American flag even accidentally during the World Cup celebration was more proof of her unworthiness to represent our great country.
