They're the same pollsters who have been conducting the same polls on past Presidents and presidential candidates. It's an apples to apples comparison. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were the candidates with the second lowest and lowest favorability ratings as determined by polls. Also keep in mind that polling for something like favorability isn't an attempt at prediction of an outcome.

If you want to attack pollsters, don't leave Kellyanne Conway out as she is a professional pollster and her company, The Polling Company was paid in excess of a million dollars for polling by the pro-Trump Robert Mercer PAC. Trump campaign internal polling tracked the polling reported by the media and that includes showing him behind on the morning of election day.

Love the guy all you want. Hell, maybe he'll surprise the rest of us and not be a horrible President. Then again, maybe he'll manage to Putinize the US and then he can do whatever he wants and manage to be popular as he's offing reporters. imprisoning dissidents and building an unimaginable fortune through cronyism. Look at how many Putin fanboys there are on ATS. They can't all be working from Kremlin-sponsored troll farms (I assume).

All I am saying is that he's not popular at the moment and they have been having trouble getting people to perform at his inauguration because a majority of entertainers either disapprove of Trump/his campaign, don't want to be seen as supporting Trump or simply don't want any parts of it.

Maybe Tom Brady can throw some deflated footballs around or someting though I'm not sure Gisele will allow it. Clint Eastwood could do the chair bit from 2012. Who else we got? James Woods, actor turned Twitter troll? D-listers Antonio Sabato Jr (who blames his b-lister status on blacklisting because of his politics and not his horribly wooden acting) and Scott Baio? Stacy Dash?

And let's not forget Ted Nugent.

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.


The primary schedule. The total population of the first three primary states nearly equals the number of Republican registered voters in my state. Although my state wasn't the caboose (darn near) by the time the primary rolled around, only three Republican candidates appeared on the ballot. By then, the momentum was behind Trump. A reversal of state primary dates would have delivered a different Republican candidate.

Oh it's silly now? Your guy literally has late night Twitter meltdowns and social media beefs with beauty pageant contestants and Vanity Fair Magazine. And he's made it mainstream to say "grab them by the __ssy" (check the memes). But now you want to talk about "being grownups"? LOL!

ETA: And obviously your guy cares about celebrities. Or am I supposed to forget about his recent photo op meetings with DiCaprio and Kanye? LOL Either he really met with them to discuss policy, or he met with them because he thinks they're important enough to meet with for publicity's sake. Either way, his actions seem to contradict your stance.

Have you ever read his transcripts?

I mean seriously, his word for word transcripts?


That's the most amazing thing. If you read what he says it's just a mess.
You can't deny it's effectiveness however.

I think he's as scripted and planned as Hillary is. The only difference is that he has a better understanding of manipulation and gives the impression of spontaneity.

If the rich celebrities don't agree with the guy who said he will secure our boarders, bring back manufacturing and remove illegal immigrants.


He also said he would release his tax returns..... turns out Trump likes telling lies!

Yes, as I understand he's been perfecting this Marketing technique for something like 20 years.

It was about 20 years ago he first thought about being president. He started asking crowds what they thought. Then he systematically gauged their responses. He calculated what worked and what didn't. Marketing.

I don't think he made his mind up until the whole birther thing started (I'm sure he never doubted Obama was American), although Oprah asked him in the 80's and wasn't the first.

He's a smart guy and he ran the most impressive campaign ever.

But now he's won he can start lying FOR us, rather than TO us.

It's just a shame that the artists feel so much pressure to stick to the company line. This isn't an ethical consideration for these artists, it's a financial one.

I don't think he ran a good campaign.

He played people and they ate it up.

Same people who believe the carnival barkers on FOX.

A good campaign wins, you could argue that he didn't win the popular vote but that wasn't the competition.
Playing people is part of campaigning. Hillary has her private and public persona which indicates she isn't above it.

There's a lot of things you can say about Trump.
But to say he didn't run a good campaign isn't one of them.

You don't beat the most qualified candidate ever without a good campaign.
If it interests you I would suggest looking into some of Scott Adams' stuff on youtube. He goes into detail with how Trump manipulated people breaking down the various techniques.

You don't "luck" into the most powerful position.

I'm reading lots of delusion in this thread.
Trump didn't just beat the gop and clinton, he beat THE WORLD that stacked up against him for months straight.
Name anyone in political history that could've pulled that off. I'll wait.....

The reason singers HAVE to turn him down is because he is "unpopular" in hollywood, to put it mildly. Its a big club where you will rarely, if ever, see celebrities go against the liberal grain and not have a hive mind.
Great example, Tom Brady, who was always friends with the Don yet can't publicly say he voted for Trump. When you're that popular you can't stand alone like that. The liberal mind is too small to see their peers have a different outlook or belief.
The media echo chamber that you all are in love with is what keeps the people mindless.

Trump was asked some time back if he was going to redecorate the entire white house.
He stated he's looking to get to work, no time for redecorating.
As usual he is still saying the same thing here.
I'm sure many of you have no problem spending millions on balls because who cares, right? 10 balls, that sounds necessary, right?
But if Trump planned on 12 or 15 balls you hypocrites would be shouting from your digital rooftops.
You people make me sick.

The best part in all this is now that Hillary lost, it's because she was so unpopular.
Holy canolis you people are delusional at best.

This was the champion of women , the gays, she was going to carry the torch of Obama and the liberals until that fly landed on her rotten face, that fly found sh#t and loved it! It was like a divine fly, the summary of the last 8 years of disgust that anyone with a brain had to endure.
Anyone who turned down Trumps invitation is no American patriot and is a wonderful example of what's wrong with this country.
Media echo chamber hive mind of people so out of touch with reality that a glance at a real president has them scurrying for a safespace inventing reasons their disaster of a candidate failed so epicly.

How about we all agree that he was the best candidate available? No more, no less.
I voted for Trump yet I will judge him in 4 years, not before inauguration day.
It's only fair at this point.

For the liberal crazies amongst us,, I hear Canada is nice this time of year. In sure they wouldn't mind upping their population.

For the respectable liberals amongst us, let's just see if there's improvement, shall we?
Then in 4 years I will tear his head off with you.

I'm very optimistic.

Yeah right. Stein and Johnson were both better available candidates than Trump and Clinton.

The problem here is what qualifies as improvements for Trump don't qualify as improvements for me. So many of his campaign promises/pledges are exact opposites of my policy positions, so there's no way we'll see eye to eye on them. Not to mention, Republicans will also have full control of Congress and the Supreme Court, so they'll also be able to follow through on their numerous pledges which go against my political priorities.

Fair enough but to say Stein or Johnson were better??
Come on, man, Johnson never heard of Aleppo despite the little conflict there that slightly weighs in the rest of the world. I mean since we may end up starting ww3 over it, as president, maybe you should at least be familiar.
And Stein, um no, I will take my chances with the big guy.

Not just financial but popularity. You would be shunned to stand with Trump. Same with Obama, if you were famous you couldn't publically hate Obama. Same with Bush for that matter.
I remember Michael Moore getting booed at the mtv awards I believe. Now I'm not a big fan but only because he spoke out about invading Iraq and suddenly he was a terrible guy.
Hive mind.
The media empire knows just how powerful their persuasion is and despite alt news outlets, msm is still king of the block.
It's why people who always liked Trump now hate him.

No, terrible campaign. He only beat the biggest odds in modern day presidential races. Not only beat, landslides.
What we're the electoral numbers again, I forgot?
It hurts you to see those numbers, I'm sure.
But reality is reality now, isn't it?

You base that on an unknown premise.


LOL.......unknown premise......

How about the fact that scores of entertainers have turned down the opportunity to perform at his inauguration events.

Trump is the most hated man in America right now, maybe the world.

I can't agree with that. When you know your stances you can speak off the cuff.
Examples: Hillary had obvious foreknowledge
Of her debate questions.
Trump was asked many questions where his body language clearly showed he was not expecting them.
Also, his answer on his stance on abortion, come on. If we are being honest with ourselves, despite our own beliefs, you have to give the guy credit. He did not squirm his way out or deflect. He gave an extremely unpopular answer to an extremely divisive question an stated his exact stance.
Now, even if you hate him and totally disagree, how could you not admit that was one of the most honest answers to ever come out of a presidents mouth? There was no spin. He answered as plainly and unpopular as popular and STILL won. Incredible!
