This should be rather easy for you right?
It would fill pages. You're being obtuse. Just listen to the radio, the pundits, any reputable news source (except FOX). One would have to be in a pretty thick-headed state of denial to not see it. (No personal offense intended)

Trump voters saved America from that disaster. But then you are stuck on the fake news eating away what little gray cells you have remaining.

The 92% negative news since November 9, 2016, and much of it fake news so often retracted afterwards. Add in the Hillary/DNC/Obama orchestrated Russia collusion lie. You know, Hillary and the DNC, and likely Obama as well, who bought and paid for the dossier, a dossier straight out of Russian intelligence agencies in Moscow, collated by a Brit.
Where did you get that 92 percent figure, and truly the rest of that horseshit?

You're quick to criticize others for not answering. However, in your long history here you are one to never answer questions. Answer the one above, please.
Thanks from Camelot

guy39 seems to have been living in the upside down Alice in Wonderland world too long.

from the Alice in Wonderland novel:
Quote:
`Not the same thing a bit!' said the Hatter. `You might just as well say that "I see what I eat" is the same thing as "I eat what I see"!'
`You might just as well say,' added the March Hare, `that "I like what I get" is the same thing as "I get what I like"!'
`You might just as well say,' added the Dormouse, who seemed to be talking in his sleep, `that "I breathe when I sleep" is the same thing as "I sleep when I breathe"!'
Saying that "some of the people on the Nazi side were nice people" is NOT the same thing as saying "Nazis are nice people."

...furthermore, I think you know it - which is EXACTLY why I stated I refused to be baited into this absurd defense of my words, which I stand by 100% - and which is the reason you refuse to acknowledge my statement in the context of the question to which it was replied.

BTW, Reuters says Trump's support among likely voters is strong. So the polls being pushed are once again missing facts, as they missed facts in 2016, including facts about likely voters.

Trump's low approval rating masks his support among likely voters: Reuters/Ipsos poll
Well Excalibur, Sabcat, and guy:
The poll, released on Wednesday, shows he polls better among people who voted in the 2016 presidential election than with the overall U.S. adult population – a group that includes both voters and non-voters. Only about 60 percent of the voting-age public took part in last year’s election.

In October, for example, 44 percent of 2016 voters said they approved of Trump’s performance in office, compared with 37 percent of the general population. Among Republicans, 82 percent of voters approved of Trump in October, compared with 75 percent of all Republicans. (Graphic: tmsnrt.rs/2zoIC1A)

Some 85 percent of those who voted for Trump in 2016 said they would do so again, the poll found.
37 percent. Not too impressive. But wait, there's more:
Gillespie’s loss sparked debate among Republicans on the way forward on Wednesday. Trump suggested in a tweet that the outcome could have been different had Gillespie fully embraced him, but critics pointed out that exit polls showed that a third of Virginian voters had turned out to signal displeasure with Trump, double the number who cast ballots to express support for the president.

Tuesday’s results clearly signal that opposition to Trump has grown, even though he remains popular among 2016 Republican voters, said Elaine Kamarck, an expert in presidential politics at the Brookings Institution.

For Republicans, “the hurdle won’t be with getting out the base,” Kamarck said. “It will be in getting anyone else to vote for you” in elections where Republican voters are outnumbered.
Good luck with that. However, count on a large D turnout as long as DJ is in office. DJ is the D's most powerful tool to get out the vote.

Thanks for linking the article.

Trump's base will never leave him, but Independents (who gave him the oval office) will. Trumpsters can brag all they want about Dotards win, but we all know how the popular vote went down. This is NOT a likable president by any stretch of the imagination.

If Trump's approval rate stagnates at under 40%, he'll meet his Waterloo in 2020--if he makes it that far.
AND yes, IT. You are right. If ever there was a reason for Dems to get to the polls....it's now. AND shame on them for not voting in 2016. More than likely they are all singing the same tune: "Who's Sorry Now". LOL

Well here is your “Blue” State showing the break down of Virginia House of Delegates by district represented by party.

A state where Republicans have controlled the state House of Representatives for the last 16 years?

And, again, IF the Democrats take control of the House it will be the single largest change of party control in at least the last 100 years!
It's easy how Virginia can be a blue state. That is the current party line lie to try and explain away the butt-kicking they got.

I have never thought Dotard would run in 2020. First, he'll be a bit long in the tooth. For all the shit the right hurled at Hillary about her health and stamina, who was the only world leader that took a golf cart ride a short distance at the recent meetings in Sicily?

But more importantly, I think he is getting more and more frustrated about not being the dictator I suspect he thought he would be able to be before he got the job. He is starting to ask himself "Who knew being president would be so limited."

I think that's why he kisses the asses of Putin, Xi and I suspect is about to with Duterte. He envies them.

I sincerely hope you are right, R. Surely, the GOP can find a better candidate than Trump or Pence. Have you noticed how strangely silent Pence has become?? Is he waiting for another shoe to drop? OR has he been part of the "secrets" from the beginning?

He is in "watchful waiting" mode, the way President Wilson was during the Mexican Revolution. Just stay back with the hope to come and pick up the shards of the Republican party after it hits the fan. Then he can be the new squeaky clean icon of the conservative right.
