    So Trump has a higher rating by 1 point while enjoying a robust economy than O bam had while trying to recover from the great recession...Golly.

    So you supported a tyrant like Saddam who gassed and murdered his own citizens and therefore switched over to voting for Democrats.

    Very strange.

    Voting for Trump is vote for the American people.

    Your words indicate you lean hard left. You constantly criticize Trump and conservatives but defend Muslims when they behave badly.

    You're out of luck because the Dem Party nominee is going to be Rich, Old, White and Senile Joe Biden or Rich, Old, White and Marxist Bernie Sanders or Rich, Old, White and one millionth part Native American Elizabeth Warren. Senile or Marxist or Fake Indian. The Left DOES promote diversity, eh?

    Obama also enjoyed the full support of the media who fawned over his every move and speech as if he could do no wrong. They did the same to Hillary Clinton in the election and yet almost every single poll had her crushing Trump.

    I think Trump would have far greater numbers of approval if the media were not so biased and tainted.

    So many conservatives claimed that the real test of a bad President was one that didn't have a GDP number over 3.0% for a year in office. Carter could. Trump can't. He's not that special.

    Now if you took Obama's starting point of 9% unemployment and compared to the 4.8% unemployment when he left office - that would be beating Trump's rate which is down 3.8% (1%). Violent crime rate, down 16% during Obama's term. Real Weekly earning up 4% while Obama was in office - up 2.6 percent as of April this year for Trump. The S&P 500 went up 166% while Obama was in office - it's gone up 28.6% under Trump.

    Obama didn't seem better educated or having more integrity.

    Trump makes him look like an amateur-and dems are still very sensitive about this because its so obvious.

    How about this for a test of a president:

    Do you remember that under Obama companies went overseas and took their jobs with them?
    Do you remember that under Obama he said those jobs were never coming back?
    Do you remember Obama saying Trump would need a magic wand to bring those jobs back?
    Do you remember that under Obama the nightmare known as Obamacare went into effect and instead of saving us money, it turned out to be so expensive that Obama himself told us that in order to afford it we might have to cut down on our cell phone bills?
    Do you remember that under Obama his nightmare known as Obamacare caused many companies to lay off people or move them to part time jobs?
    Do you remember that under Obama his nightmare known as Obamacare caused cities, counties, states and school districts to lay off people or move them to part time jobs so they could avoid the burden of Obamacare?
    Do you remember the economy sucking so bad and with Obama not having a solution he told us this was the new economy and to get used to it?

    Bonus:

    Do you remember when people were losing their jobs due to Obamacare that Nancy Pelosi practically said it was a good thing because now people can spend more time with their families?

    I opposed the war. I sided with historians, diplomats, Arabs and oilmen. I knew it would be a disaster.

    Meanwhile, Congress has kicked Trump's trade deal in the teeth.

    I'VE GOT IT! I discovered the dream candidate for democrats, this person has demonstrated a consistent history of promoting women and minorities in to positions of authority long before it was cool. This person cares about poor people and thinks taxes are too high, this person believes in a strong military to protect all we have built. IT is TRUMP , the only president in history that has actually done something for minorities instead of just talking about it, the perfect democrat party candidate. they really should nominate him, what would we conservatives do then? Damn.

    Alas . . . the chances are excellent that no leftist or liberal or progressive remembers ANY of that. Selective amnesia is why they CAN sleep peacefully at night . . . after first checking to make certain that there are no Russians or Ukrainians under their bed.

    No, unlike the left Trump just brought more public awareness to the violence which forced those democratically run cities to toughen up. Just like he brought attention to the record number of minorities on welfare and food stamps during the Obama years and poof, 7 million less on food stamps, record number of minorities with a job. Just like he brought awareness to the filth in the streets of Baltimore and poof a conservative group went to Baltimore one Saturday and removed over 21 tons of street garbage. Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings had 23 years and Obama had 8 years to try and clean up the streets of Baltimore but the city just became one of the country’s most violent and filthiest during that time.

    How about the mayor of Chicago firing the police chief? This is the same chief that refused to attend the National Chief of Police Convention held in his own city because President Trump was the host. The bad part about this is that ex police Chief Eddie Johnson is now an unemployment statistic, but hopefully a typical Chicago weekend won’t include another 40 minorities shot with 8 fatalities anymore. Do you know the number 1 cause of death for a 15-25 year old black male is murder by another black male? Murder is the number 54th cause of death for the rest of the country. Do you know that 6% of the population is responsible for 52% of the murders in this country? Do you know that nearly 8 out of 10 African Americans born in the US are born into single mother households on gov’t assistance. All of the above statistics peaked during the Obama years. Can we conclude that Obama is racist against his own race?

    I'm very conservative and I think Trump is a moron. As for Muslims.. I know a bit about Islam and the Arab world.

    Crushing, how does one define crushing? RCP averages had Hillary winning the popular vote by three points. She won it by two. Bloomberg had Clinton by 3, IBD/TIPP Clinton by 1, Economist/YouGov had Clinton by 4, LA Times Trump by 1, ABC Clinton by 3 and so on.

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/e...s/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html

    Being all polls usually have a margin of error of plus or minus 3 points, they all seem to be right on. I see nothing there that says Clinton was going to crush Trump. What I see is a very close race. I don't see where a poll predicts a Clinton win by 1, 2, 3 points is having Clinton crush Trump.

    I'm afraid that story of all the polls predicting Hillary would trounce Trump is nothing more than an old wives tale. The numbers show different.

    What keeps Trump's approval numbers low is his schoolyard bully personality. His very unpresidential behavior. Whether or not one agrees with his policies, it is the man himself, Trump the individual that people don't like. His persona, Trump is a very easy man to dislike. There's quite a lot of folks who believe the president of the United States shouldn't go around throwing temper tantrums via twitter and call other names like a five year old kid who's parents forgot to teach him any manners. Those personality traits are more befitting of a wrestler in the WWE than the occupant of the Oval Office.

    Trump has six hours a day for executive time. He doesn't take briefings.. Do you actually think he could find Ukraine on a map?
