8. Not a chance

OT: I've got a step son I've been hoping to help fix his stupidity for 26 or so years now.

Oh he wants to be a member of society but just can't see what his problem is. Like I've told him time and time again, Joey there is nothing wrong with copping a buzz from time to time but when thats all you live for there's something wrong with that. Good worker, smart as a whip and has no problem with getting a job and is well liked up until he gets enough money in his pocket to score some drugs then all bets are off until he's picked up for stupid shit and is put away for a while. They'll get him dried out and as soon as he gets the opportunity he's right in the thick of things again. The court system is about had it with him and his next step is the big house. And I promise him he will not like that one bit. I feel for him. I came into his life when he was 15 YO and its been a battle every since. When he's straight he can't think me enough for my ability to convey his problem to him in a manner he can see but like I said as soon as he's got a penny or two its back to the drugs.
This last time he went into an open attached garage and stole a car and that makes it a aggravated felony so he's in serious lock up drug rehab. He has his mom convinced they're simply housing him in a nursing home. The kids 42 or soon to be years old. He was sentenced to drug rehab here in ok about 10 years ago but as soon as he got a chance to run he took off like a rabbit. Now he's in Missouri and I feel sorry for him but theres nothing or his mother or I can do anymore
As I said he's one of those guys who aced all his test in High School because he's smart as a whip but stupid as the day is long

It breaks my Wife and my self's heart

He'll steal from us everything not nailed down and half of what is so that complicated things even more.

4. Rank and file GOP voters are for the most part sticking with him.

Pretty embarrassing, actually. I have two close repub friends and been friends with them since childhood. They both started out as anyone but Trump. One ended up voting Libertarian and the other reluctantly voted for Trump. The Libertarian voter still hates Trump and the other guy is now defending him even saying there must be something to the Obama wire tapping thing. I just say 'fucking listen to yourself. You saw quite clearly what Trump was when Marco Rubio was running against him."

5. I have a hard time believing that number. I would be interested in seeing the

methodology of the poll. NOBODY I know likes or approves of him and that includes republicans here. Of course, I live in a very blue area (Charlie Baker republicans) but still, 43%? That just seems way too high.

21. I live in a very red area and they support him

He got 75 percent of the vote in my county and would again today. This is a very evangelical area and they will put up with anything to keep Dems from appointing pro choice judges.

22. Even if people in their family start dying off because of lack of insurance and

benefits? They will really place the value of the unborn over the value of those they love most? That is what is going to happen under this administration. It is going to happen and if they don't change their tune, then I honestly have no hope for them.

23. shit yeah. they have been voting against their own economic

interests since Reagan. Voting GOP is a cultural ritual like church attendance here, not an economic decision.

7. Devil is in the details. 538 relies upon Rasmussen and Morning Consult polls. The

 

former has Trump with a 48% approval rating and the latter shows Trump with a 52% approval rating! The former got a C+ grade while the latter isn't even graded.

Since 538 is a 'poll of polls,' much depends on how it weighs the various polls to find its composite score. Last week, however, Gallup showed Trump's approval at only 39%. Hard to imagine his budget improving that number, but Gallup this week shows his approval rating is now 41%.

It's hardly comforting knowing that some 40% of the country are psychopaths.

10. never understate the number of americans that hate their country, the media and democrats and

 

all the programs in place that assist americans...even those who rail against them...a couple decades of breeding the hate has payed off and lackluster democratic voters who didn't get off their asses to vote or the ones that voted 3rd party gave us this mess..we outnumber the conservatives but somehow find a way to sit on out butts...and then whine about what happens when conservatives take power....

2018 2018 2018

that is what we all have to stay focus on

12. We know for a fact that there are least 62 million psychopaths

 

in this country based on the popular vote in 2016. In a room randomly filled with 100 Americans today, roughly 40 of them will be psychopaths. Doesn't that just warm your heart?

14. I'd say the 62 million has some wiggle room as some people voted for trump to a

 

shake up in govt and others voted for trump as being against hillary more than being for trump...buyers remorse can and will set in on this segment of trump voters. I think the base of trump is 32-35%...the hardcore of the hardcore and when we see consistent polling of approval ratings in mid 30's, conservatives in Congress will be soon cornered with a decision on what to do about trump who will remain deep in graft, lies and deceit of all kinds. 2018 is looking to be a disaster year for conservatives, they know it now...and their choice will be on how disastrous do they want the election to be.

16. 1%ers who voted for Trump made a rational choice, so they may not be

 

psychopaths. Everyone else saw how he treated disabled people and women and still voted for him. I don't really give a shit what they say their reasons for voting for him were. No way you could watch him mock that disabled reporter or brag about sexually assaulting women, vote for him and not harbor deeply psychopathic tendencies.

While agreeing with you about what 2018 portends, there's a part of me that worries that Trump will find some means by which to suspend elections, maybe using a manufactured crisis to allow for suspension of the Constitution.

I've said since early 2016 that all leftists must hope for the best but plan for the worst.

17. lots of truth here....a significant portion of trump/conservative voters/supporters

 

will be negatively impacted....why repeal of ACA and conservative healthcare law wont go into effect until after 2018 or 2020 elections but that still keeps a campaign point that is a loser for them....

not even talking about all the program cuts that will happen beginning THIS year that effect these same voting blocks.....

18. None of my usual friends can defend him

And they could defend GWB. This guy, they can't defend. They're conservative, they have different values but even they can see the man is a dangerous idiot.

We're probably going into North Korea. Best of luck with that. China is the one that should go in there, but China has been more peaceful than we have. The United States is the war machine and we have a prison state based on percentage.

Trump is going to want a war. Just because he's bored and watching tv.

20. I'm attributing it to Stockholm syndrome.

Also, to polls that insist there's always an even split in attitudes and viewpoints. They really must be running out of rocks to look under for Trump scum.
