        The mainstream media is so disgustingly negative in its reporting on Trump. Could you imagine what Trump's approval rating would be if CNN, MSNBC-13, et. al. were fawning all over Trump like they did Obama?

          Absolutely. I think the majority of the American public has awakened to the fact that the media cannot be trusted.

            That’s hysterical. If he pulls off a meaningful deal with the PRK and officially ends that war we may see an historic mid-term win for Republicans.

              11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.

              People are tired of the lies by #FakeNews which has managed to look so insane and make Trump look like the underdog who is fighting both the radical left democrat party and their accomplices in the media and the establishment big govt big biz republicans.

                  Im not sure it matters. Have you seen their ratings?

                  No one watches that trash anymore.

                  It's true. You're welcome to look it up yourself or you can just remain ignorant.

                  Its even more amazing considering Trump's caustic personality and the hourly negative barrage coming from CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, PBS, every late night talk show, SNL, just about every daytime talk show, the NYT, WAPO, LA Times and literally dozens and dozens of other newspapers, at least a dozen online "news" sites like Vox, Huffpo, Newsweek and Business Insider, and college professors and any number of other bastions of leftist propaganda promoting mouthpieces.

                  Now, take all those listed above and reverse the way they all treated Obama with all of their knob slobbering coverage and you can see why it's so unbelievably amazing that Trump is beating Obama's numbers.

                        I being retired have time to actually see the president in some meetings with normal people. He goes around the table and gets input from everyone, generally he appears to be paying close attention and responding. I have seen the same in political meetings as well.

                        Sure if you get in his face he comes back strongly, as do many people.

                          Her see I'm neither it's stupid playing in the uniparty system

                          Let's see some other sites #s

                          On the other hand, a majority of voters don’t think Trump cares about average Americans (55 percent), has good leadership skills (56 percent) or shares their values (61 percent). They don’t believe he is honest (59 percent), level-headed (64 percent) or a good role model for children (69 percent). They disapprove of his handling of foreign policy (52 percent) and immigration issues (58 percent).

                          Overall, 40 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance in this survey, compared with 51 percent who disapprove — fairly similar to other polls of the president’s standing.

                          https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/trump-might-be-more-popular-if-he-werent-so-trumpy/amp/

                          Here's an actual breakdown of his rating:

                          Even FNC has him at 45% approval
                          https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/


                          Now let's compare Obama who had to deal with a recession and being the first black president in a predominantly white country and Reagan who also had to deal with a terrible disaster of an economy left by Jimmy Carter. That isn't good at all. Especially considering how the last midterms played out in Obama and Reagan first terms. I expect the democrats to win back Congress and then to impeachment proceedings for Russian Collusion to begin. When you piss everyone off dont be surprised when no one is there to bail you out.
