  • Trump has huge closet support that spans gender, race, and age, despite what the media says. His rallies often fill complete stadiums with excess overflow crowds outside watching on monitors.

    Other politicians can barely fill a high school auditorium.

    What is remaining of the Democrats is a very vocal small minority of people that are extreme left. They are the shirl voices you hear on Twitter, Facebook, and other places posting political rants. It's easy to see this and assume the anti-Trump point of view represents the majority. It does not.

    Keep in mind that the 52% is from the Rausemmen poll which was the only poll in 2016 that was anywhere close to showing a Trump victory. Some other pollsters believe 52% is understated and it's closer to 60-70%.

    • fivethirtyeight. com had him with a 20% chance of winning. Easier than rolling a 6.

    • 7d

      @goaded he got %19 of votes and fivethirtyeight clearly says his approval is at %39. Not %50.

    • 7d

      @John_Doesnt I know, Rasmussen tends to give answers to the right of every other polling organisation. I was talking about the 2016 polls; a four-in-five chance of Clinton winning is far from certain, fivethirtyeight had it right.

  • People are tired of being told what to think by the media. Trump says what he thinks and does what he wants and pretty much no one can control him.

    He's the bad boy president that America asked for. It's a rebellion against mainstream media and do as I say tactics.

    Maybe I don't know.

  • People trust him and his motives. Being new to Washington he doesn’t owe any body anything and his rants prove he can’t keep secrets.

  • Imagine how much more could have been happening if the media was actually fair and balanced? If Atrump was treated as most presidents were treated, with even a small amount of respect and fairness, this nation would be much better off. But there are still liberals who think the election was not legitimate. It’s not possible, they reason, that Hillary lost. Inconceivable. No way. Fake news. Trump is not the president, according to them.

  • The median age in the US is 38.1 right now, and Trumps support increases with age, especially when you get above 40 years old. If a majority (70-80%) of the 40+ population sides with Trump, and half of the 30+ population sides with Trump, that pretty much explains it.

      That is a good point, the socialist Democrats must have 25 and under votes , but they don't have enough to win. My nieces left college liberals , then they got a job in the real world and saw what really goes on , not what the media says and now they sound like me.

      Two peeves in one message.

      1. They're not. They're separate. Democrats are closer to socialist ideas than Republicans are, but they're still not the same thing.
      2. Stating that an opinion is fact.

      I am perfectly fine leaving this conversation as it is right now if you will continue to insist that opinions are facts.

  • Most media outlets are bias against Trump, nevertheless the tax break he gave the middle class has people with a bit more money in their pockets which translates to happy people and decent approval ratings.

      Most polls are liberals asking other liberals to hate Trump, so if they said 1% approval it wouldn't surprise me. Media had him at 30% approval before election , right after Hillary called him crying she lost to him , and the day after election. Fake News = Fake Poll Numbers. The numbers I like was the election numbers , the real numbers and the News headline , Trump Wins! Trump Wins! I can't wait until Dumbacrats put up a socialist against him in 2020 , even with all the cheating and fraud DNC , Trump is going to win. Then when election laws gets changed and Trump runs in 2024 against Barack Insane Obama and beats him , I will really let everyone know it.

      @Poormanscomedian no, that's an independent poll. They are non-partisan, but according to you anyone who hates Trump is fake news.

  • Lol because most of America with a brain support him.. 76% of Americans approved of his state of the union address.

  • The media obviously isn't showing accurate information. Oligarchy/monopoly another term I'm missing but you get the point. What people want you to believe pays well just like we are told we have a free market last I check these big name companies keep buying out smaller ones? We don't have a free market! Just found out Microsoft bought github which if I'm correct was developed by Linus Torvalds himself and the list goes on.

    • Popularity and integrity are uniquely intertwined. I don’t know any douchebags that are popular. Everyone knows they’re a douchebag and dislike them. But douchebags are not necessarily well thought of, and integrity may be part of the reason.

  • Maybe because sane people look at what he is doing and what he is saying, instead of listening to whiny libtards complain about him. By the way, I think libtards are the most hated group nowadays among any normal people regardless of skin color, gender, nationality or anything else. So the fact he triggers them alone would make me want to vote for him if I was an USA citizen.
