The fact that President Trump is given low popularity numbers by Left wing pols is partisan politics. No, he probably wouldn’t win the warm and fuzzy vote needed to be America’s Homecoming King, but he did win the Presidency. For that reason alone those who love America should give him our full and undivided support and allow him to make America great again!I’m fascinated by this current societal focus on popularity and approval in U.S. politics, I first noticed this phenomenon during the Bush presidency. My observation was, Bush’s opponents both in politics and in the media went to great lengths to make President Bush a social pariah. They used social popularity as a weapon to attack President Bush both personally and his presidency in general. They are using these same attack methods this time attacking President Trump. Based on this observation, I noted in a previous posting that Barack Obama was elected as if America was electing a Homecoming King, purely on Popularity. (see post) It is evident that using the shallow rubric of popularity as the measure for, determining a person’s qualifications to hold a public office is, problematic because proper vetting of a person’s essential or fundamental qualifications and fitness to hold office will not occur if a person is well liked and approved of. In President Obama’s case proper vetting did not occur. Understanding this, the current polling on President Trump’s popularity or his job approval is not what it seems. Here’s why, The Associated Press’, “Trump’s Low Approval Ratings Set An Unwanted Record” written by Emily Swanson. is an unsophisticated attempt to label the President with unpopularity based on polling numbers. She does this without reasoning-out the causal effects of the numbers she employs. (see story)
Though Ms. Swanson alludes to the fact that the president’s approvals numbers are anomalous Ms. Swanson lazily makes no effort to explain why.
Yet, just a cursory examination of the political atmosphere in the United States, one can not but notice the negative and partisan media treatment that candidate and now president Trump receives. This negatively started long before President Trump served one day as president and continues to this day. Juxtaposition Mr. Trump’s treatment with the royal treatment that President Obama and his family received. One can only come to the realization that President Trump’s negative poll numbers may be influenced if not manufactured by the media and by those who previously controlled the government in the previous administration.
The fact that President Trump was never allowed the consideration to enter into the presidency with a period of calm speaks to the unwillingness for some in our country to accept a duly elected president, which they do not like because he is not of their choosing.
If this is the case, negative polls are a reflection of the negative views of those who were polled rather than showing anything about the president. In other words, if President Trump has low popularity and job performance numbers that phenomena is very well a measure of the biases and prejudices of the people polled rather than a showing of the president’s actual job performance. Never before has a President come into office with a paid political and social organized resistance against him. President Trump did. Never before has a President’s own Party worked openly to prevent him from becoming president. The GOP did. Never before has the out going administrative attempted to sabotage the incoming administration so openly and so comprehensively. The Obama administration did. If President Trump’s poll numbers are low it is plain to see that it has nothing to do with him. Instead, it has everything to do with the Resistance, with Antifa, with Never-Trump, with Anti-Trump, with the Democrat Party, with the Media, with the GOP, with Democrats, and with the Deep State. Again the current negative poll numbers attributed to President Trump has nothing to do with him. To the contrary, the low poll numbers attributed to the president have everything to do with the Left wing pollsters who take them and the people whom they poll. In other words, the low negative polling attributed to the president says more about the portion of America from which these numbers come rather than what they say about the president. Quite frankly America you don’t want another Homecoming King presidency! Obama was that president. His administration was that presidency. Obama was Homecoming King President. Obama was elected on popularity, not on qualifications. Obama wasn’t vetted on the essential or fundamental qualifications of the presidency nor was he fit to be president. Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden both warned us of his unfitness during the 2008 primary. Have you forgotten? Nevertheless, his anti-American and incompetent presidency proved they were right. The fact that President Trump is given low popularity numbers by Left wing pols in their polling is partisan politics. No, he probably wouldn’t win the warm and fuzzy vote needed to be America’s Homecoming King, but President Trump did win the Presidency. For that reason alone those who love America should give him our full and undivided support and allow him to make America great again!
