    Seems you're talking political pundits, not polls. Two entirely different things. The polls I showed you, I don't pay any attention to what political pundits, forecasters say. I pay attention to the polls. If you said some political pundits said Clinton would trounce or crush Trump, fine. Some certainly did. But not the polls. The polls showed a very close race.

    How anyone in their right mind could look at those polls I showed you and say Hillary had an 85% chance of winning is plain loco. That make me think that particular pundit went with his heart and not by the numbers.

    No poll showed Hillary crushing Trump, period. Political pundits are another matter.

    Your post is agreeable but most people pay attention to the pundits and take it as the news of the day.

    Obama was a two term president who is respected by ALL previous US presidents and admired world wide. Trump is a force but he's never prepared, talks too much and stirs up chaos... and socially he's a boor without regard for others. He's a narcissist .. He can't negotiate because he never listens to the other guy.

    A "Snapshot" that means very little.

    That said, it will only mean SOMETHING if Trump wins in 2020.

    But, with Trump getting EVISCERATED on a Daily Basis (from being humiliated on the world stage) to facing Impeachment, I can't really blame Trumpies playing up "any bit" of (apparent) "good news".

    Even if it is from a discredited Poll (like Rasmussen).

    Is this what happens when there's nothing left? No Russia, P-grabbing has worn thin, rayyyyyycist is tired as hell, etc. Fall back on education .. because 'gosh darn it feels like we're still okay as long as we cling to that tiny piece of the sinking ship' :p

    I can't tell you how much I admire any leader who donates the entirety of their salary. It's incredibly rare, sadly. If you can't even do that, you're not in the least serious about giving back to your country.

    Obama inherited an economy that was a mess and was deeply in debt. Did you expect a quick fix after 8 years of Bush, 9-11, 2 wars and Hurricane Katrina? I thought it would be a long slog back but Obama did turn things around.

    Presidents play the hand they're dealt .. and its full of surprises.

    Why are you blaming Bush for 9/11 when it was your Saudis that did it?

    Odd argument.

    This is true:

    Americans need to get wise about their priorities and what they are investigating. It's why I think Trump wins again and starts a 8-12 year run in keeping leftsist far left Democrats out of office. Hopefully, permanently.

    He's run up six times his salary a year in playing golf games at his resorts and made big money on each 3.5 million golf trips. Trump is a consumer .. a big one. He's an eating machine... Remember how he bragged that he didn't pay taxes.. only stupid people paid taxes, he's the king of debt, loves debt and loves the uneducated.. He said that we knew he was a snake when we took him in. He told us who he was and he would bite the hands that fed him. He will betray the American people just as he has betrayed everyone in his past.. just as he betrayed his wives, friends, investors and bankers.

    Read Art of the Deal.. Trump states that if your borrow enough money you OWN the lender.

    Obama left with a 53% approval rating; the same percent of the popular vote that elected him. Trump has never even seen that number.

    I seem to recall every news station, every poll, every late night TV "comedian" laughing and piling on about how Hillary was going to easily defeat Trump, even to the point of being unbelievably crude, rude and dismissive. Then Trump won and the tears have never stopped falling.

    I for one hate polls and I refuse to take part in most of the political ones so when they call, I hang up or give them false information. I am not alone because I know a lot of people who do it.

    Something to ponder:

    LOL - Bush Jr. had an approval rate of over 90% at one point. His father was over 59% during the Gulf War.

    The media lied repeatedly and manipulated the Obama polls to make him look more popular than he ever was.

    But in the end, trump only won by a matter of 100,000 votes in three States combined.

    And Hillary won the national popular vote as predicted. The most pathetic Democratic candidate in memory and trump couldn't even beat her. What a loser!
