Politico's Polling Results Showing Approval Rating on Each Executive Order >>>

From what I understand, Politico tends to be left leaning. Their polls from this week show that every single executive order has more support than opposition in the USA. Possible?

Hey as long as his half of the voters approve of his EO, he does not care. He is President of "Half the Country"

Tim, but that's not true is it?

If only his half approved of the EO, those approval ratings wouldn't be so one sided.

She won the popular vote after all.

This just further confirms my suspicions that a lot of people like what he's doing, but they aren't out advertising their support for fear of professional or social backlash.

So his Executive orders are of populist nature. Take for example TPP. Advertised as a job saving tool ( wrongly) . Job losses have largely been due to automation and less due to trade.

1. Leaves the entire Asia to be dominated by China. China is going to be a thorn in our side, now sooner than later.

2. Goes protectionist against all the "Republican" principal.

3. Save a few low paying job against getting a few high paying jobs.

4. Reduces American influence in the entire world.

Poltico is generally considered center. Feels left if you are right. Feels real left if you are alt-right. ;)
A poll conducted by an outlet doesn't take on the leanings or characteristic of that outlet in result.

What confirms this?

His EO's are more populist, poorly executed and in the end may bring grief to th ecountry. Remember 72% of the country supported Iraq war

I was one of the few who opposed it

Does that mean you want a trophy?

No but it implies that I do not mind to be in the less populist side if that is good for the country

I'm still astounded that GW Bush got away with such treason.

Looks very much like Bush's Saudi buddy Bandar bin Sultan actually did plan and execute 9/11.

And then after what was clearly a Saudi attack on the US, Bush goes and does a favor for the Saudis by taking out Iraq.

I just cannot get over the fact that Bush is still not in jail for this.

That, and how much in love the Democrats fell with the Bush Family last year.

All of a sudden they went from pariahs that elicited a knee-jerk response as warmongering morons, into dignified Elder Statesmen who ought to be listened to.

Dignified elder statesmen is quite a stretch. People liked the fact that, at the end of the day, there was a bond between the first families despite differences. It's something badly lacking in current America, unifying commonality, across the political divide. (I cannot but help love the Bush daughters letters to the Obama girls.)

Bush was a total disaster, but he had far more sense of service and gravity than Trump, and that is a low bar to start at. Character is destiny, and an idiot who knew he didn't really know what he was doing but meant well, versus an idiot who thinks only he can save you ... well, the difference is going to be stark at the end of the day.

I think an alpha male is refreshing to lying neoliberal Managerial types speaking in glittering generalties about aspiration and togetherness while stabbing the working class in the back.

~326,000,000 minus ~ 80,000,000 younger than 18.
How did they have time to poll all of these?

if the poll is not done by ABC, NBC, CNN, WaPo and other Jewish/liberal news outlets then I can't be bothered to take it seriously.

in my mind, brave Hillary is still the 45th president of the United States. she won the popular vote.
