    Trump's terrible approval is not so terrible. He has been neck and neck with Obama on the same day of office since Jul 2 2019. He is well approved of relative to other international leaders. He is polling up 7 points on election day 2016.

    I don't predict a landslide, but depending on the Dem nominee he has a very realistic chance.

    The smart money is on Trump. The Democratic field is joke. But there is no sure thing. Literally anything could happen in the next nine months.

    People like jokes. It’s why Minnesota elected a wrestler and America elected a game show host.

    upload_2020-1-21_9-45-19.jpeg vs upload_2020-1-21_9-46-25.jpeg

    Polling aggregates show trump down by about 4-6 points in approval ratings and up 6-8 points in disapproval ratings during the same period vs Obama. His approval ratings are down in all areas he won by less than 5% — he carried three states necessary for his reelection by less than 80,000 voters in 2016.

    If I may ask, where are you getting your numbers from?

    Since the dems can’t run on anything they have accomplished they are running on free stuff. Since the dems want power they have to resort to personal destruction like they did with Kavanaugh and now Trump.

    Their real goal is the Judiciary. Trump is putting in constitutional originalists and not progressive activist judges which is the real threat to their progressive ideology. They need the Senate so expect the dems during this trial to act as badly as the dem clown show in the House. They need the Presidency so hope to weaken Trump even by passing very weak impeachment articles and a process that could bite them down the road just like the nuclear option on judges have.

    There are two sure things.
    When CNN starts claiming that 50% of newly employed people who just got a raise want to see it all ended and that they are happily draining their bank accounts before Sanders drains it for them and packing to move out of their homes that Liz Warren wants to confiscate ,,, and gleefully pouring their cokes in the street before Bloomberg does it for them, you know the real polling is bad for Democrats.

    When Democrats ramp up the Racist, Sexist, Homophobe, Xenophobe, Transphobe, you REALLY know the Dems are about to be shellacked.

    of course he isn't a shoo-IN. That is more LEFTIST corruption because they want Trump supporters to get cocky, complacent, overconfident and not show up to vote while in the mean time, they democrats are gearing up MILLIONS of illegals to vote illegally on their behalf. What a bunch of sick you know whats!

    And a community organizer named Obama. Ross Perot was once a paper boy. I'm sure all of us have held menial jobs sometimes in our lives. Makes for great training. I picked tobacco, set pins at a bowling alley, delivered newspapers on a bicycle, and others of less importance. But I was financially able to retire at age 55. Now look at the success and great performance of the game show host once he entered the Oval Office. Some folks just don't recognize the intelligence of Trump. They just hate his personality, his looks, the way he talks, or because he's a republican. Some even hate his success at MAGA.

    If you have to wait in Valley Forge all this winter, and spring, and summer and into the fall, you got to show up to vote for Trump.

    All hands on deck, 286 days 20 hours 43 minutes.

    People hate big government and political correctness. That’s why Trump was elected.

    It'd be pretty hard for Trump to lose at this point.

    He'd have to really screw something up for that to happen. People are willing to put up with him for four more years because he is producing results, that's what it boils down to.

    I don't see voters risking a great economy on the likes of a Warren or Sanders and their insane policies no matter how much they may dislike Trump. Biden will probably be the nominee but there again, why risk a good thing on a chance? There is no way in hell that Biden will be able to outperform Trump on the economy and face it, people like working and making money.

    Face it, no matter how the race is spun, it is currently unpredictable. The DNC is working overtime to undo the 2016 elections. Win or lose, they plan to use the Impeachment Process to attack the President. The thing that the DNC is not understanding is that the average American either does not care, or is not buying their story. Those that do not care, believe that all politicians are already corrupt, and this is a much milder form of corruption then most have done. They do not see it as a reason to change their vote. At the same time, Trump has turned the economy working on a cylinders. Unemployment is down. The unemployment rate for African Americans is lower then anytime in history. The incomes for blue collar workers is rising faster then those of supervisors. The average household income has risen by $10,000 a month since Trump took office. Despite having to fight open border Democrats and Judicial Activist Judges, Trump won a decisive victory on the wall, and stemmed the flow of illegals across the border. It is not going unnoticed that these caravans only happen during election years. Add in Trump's getting trade agreements, and you have a lot of positives for the President to run on.

    At the same time, the DNC candidates are playing the "who can be more left then the others". Your collection of Candidates include a self-avowed Communist, a woman with the propensity of lying every time she opens her mouth, a former VP that is admittedly guilty of the very thing the DNC is trying to impeach the President for, and a nanny-stater. All they have is fake promises of free handouts that no one could afford to keep, and more socialist/communist policies. Such as open borders, confiscating guns, and ruining the US economy. They are even trying to move the markers again, and alter reality. One Democrat (not a candidate) claimed that the DNC is a centrist Conservative party, and that there is no left-wing party in the US. It is this type of moronic behavior that will cost the DNC (no matter which candidate) the elections. That may seem contradictory to my opening statement, but it really isn't. There is always a chance that the DNC will change things up, but I seriously doubt it. Especially, since the President's Administration is set to have an October surprise of indicting key members of the Obama's Administration.

    Trump beat the odds starting back around 2016. This time around Trump is in a much better position. He should easily win. Face the facts folks.

    Trouble is that Trump's accomplishments are not getting out by the bias news. If it was he would be way ahead of anyone the Democrats put up.
