So when you listen to Beyonce you agree with her political beliefs?

So a good indication of average Americans "liking" a president is to ask Bon Jovi or Common?

Source for the most unpopular pres. please.

All the people that has turned him down for performing at the inauguration is a good indicator he isn't liked very much.
I do give them credit for the excuse though that he wants to get down to work.



If Hollywood types don't like him that reassures me we made a good choice.

If it saves taxpayers dollars then I'm all for it. Whether it because he's unpopular or because he wants to get to work, I'd say having 3 balls instead of 10 is probably cheaper.

Highly doubt it.... other than photo opportunities and being twitter fingers, and making a mess of his cabinet selections ya I'd say he's got an F before even being sworn in.

LOL If they really didn't matter, then why did his team try to get them in the first place? It's like the guy who tries to flirt with a woman, gets turned down, and then claims he didn't want her in the first place. Besides, I said nothing in my posts about subscribing to cults of personalities or anything to that effect. Sounds like you're deflecting from the obvious spin his camp is doing because he got rejected so many times.

And are you really trying to make that "he gets things done" argument? Because the last time I checked, his business record is full of crappy stuff he "got done" too.

I think that equating the American people "liking" someone to entertainers preforming for Trump is an apples and oranges comparison and frankly silly. Are we not grown up?

And if you subscribe to the entertainer/American public have the same outlook, sensibilities or even morals, you are fooling yourself.

LOL, it is because most celebrity acts the Trump team tried to book, via offering promoters even ambassadorships...declined. It was after all the Trump team's failure, that Trump tweeted something about it being for the people and celebs were not needed.

This was gone over in a prior thread.


Ya..he wants to get RIGHT to work. But instead of taking security briefings and learning what a President actually does he is on his Thankyou Tour and tweeting the US into a nuclear war and most likely consumer prices going up by at least twice.

You people were afraid of Hillary.

He is already shirking PDB's and has talked seriously about working from NYC like being POTUS is a part-time job.

He never wanted to be President. This is going to make him tens of billions. OF COURSE he will treat it like a part time job.

Trump out worked all of the other candidates for Presidency. This news does not surprise me. He does work a lot.


With who he was up against and how they performed, I could have won.

I am not sure how that happened, some of the Republican nominees were intelligent and well spoken and very good debaters. There is a conspiracy theory right there. They seemed to just give up and barely try. Most of them on their worst day could have out debated Trump with little effort.

That is something that makes my tinfoil hat light up.

He certainly did not out-debate Clinton. As he had not debated better in Republican debates. Something happened in the entire process that is very off. It would be worth looking at this from the beginning.

USA Today - Poll: Clinton, Trump most unfavorable candidates ever (August 31, 2016)


An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Wednesday found that Clinton’s unfavorability rating with U.S. adults has gone up 6 points in three weeks. The shift comes as more questions have been raised about her private email server and the relationship with her family’s charity while she was secretary of State.

Among U.S. adults, Clinton now has a 56% unfavorability rating, while Trump had 63%.

And with registered voters, the two are basically tied: Clinton has 59% unfavorability and Trump has 60%.


FiveThirtyEight - Trump Is More Unpopular Than Clinton Is — And That Matters (Sep 30, 2016)


A few things stick out. First, as I said at the outset, Clinton and Trump remain very much disliked relative to previous candidates. Jimmy Carter in 1980 was the only candidate before 2016 who had a net favorability of -10 percentage points or worse. Now, both Clinton and Trump fall into that category, and Trump’s is below -20 points.


Fox News - Fox News Poll: Majority feels hopeful, yet low expectations for Trump (December 14, 2016)


More than one-third of voters have a positive outlook for Trump: 25 percent expect him to be an “above average” president and 11 percent say he’ll be one of the country’s “greatest.”

Voters are about three times as likely to say he’ll be “one of the worst” presidents (31 percent) as one of the greatest, while 12 percent say “below average.” Sixteen percent peg Trump for “average.”

One-quarter of Republicans expect Trump will be one of the greatest presidents (24 percent). More than twice as many Democrats think he’ll be one of the worst (58 percent).


There's a large and vocal group who are in love with Trump (about a quarter of GOP voters). There are a lot of people who are not. Don't let ATS fool you. Probably a quarter of his most vocal fans on ATS aren't American and the ATS political forums have had a distinct right lean as long as I've been around.

I know I hear the dems say that he had great things he wanted to get done, but the repubs stopped him cold. I don't know how much truth there is to that statement.





13:39 for the part relevant to what you are asking. It is also a good listen to see all the bull# the GOP has talk these past 6 years. Notice how it is a speech to the Heritage Foundation and not the American people.

Stop thinking about polls. Look at the debates and what people actually said.

There is something to be found here. Republican candidates softly debating and then just failing? Pretty much backing off. People who have debated in government for years and years and suddenly were like deer in the headlights while Trump said little of note to counter them.

Something was off from day 1.

I plan to start there. I have seen you, seasonal, look into something even if it is anti Trump. Maybe you can look too.

It all looks awful funny to me.

And I see it as a problem for Dems and Repubs.

Trump wants to get to work, and he plans less balls and celebrations than Obama so he can get to work for the American people.

And I hope not spending 90% of time on vacation or golf courses

Trump did not debate them he destroyed them. This was no polite tea and crumpets event. He called them out, something that isn't supposed to happen, not to them.
