Trump’s poll numbers sink into death spiral on the one-year anniversary of his campaign’s start

Published

on

It’s been one year since Donald Trump took that fateful ride down the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for President of the United States — and his poll numbers are absolutely tanking despite the fact that he’s seemingly locked down the Republican nomination for the presidency.

Here is a chart from Real Clear Politics that shows what’s happened to Trump’s polling averages ever since he got a brief boost after clinching his status as the presumptive Republican nominee:

What’s particularly devastating about this from Trump’s perspective is that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton hasn’t gained all that much in the past three weeks — instead, it’s mostly been about Trump spiraling downward.

How bad are Trump’s poll numbers right now? This bad: None of the last seven polls released have him even cracking the 40% support barrier. In fact, the last poll that had him at 40% or higher was an Economist/YouGov poll that came out on June 5th — and even then, Trump only garnered 41% of the vote.

Another thing to consider is that Hillary Clinton’s top rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders, hasn’t even conceded or endorsed her yet. If he does that at the Democratic National Convention in July, that might give her a further boost over Trump in the polls.

Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats

Published

on

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
