President Trump Is Delivering
"Are you better off than you were four years ago?" How do we measure this? I use my three criteria: the Constitution, Christianity and Capitalism. On all three fronts, Donald Trump is making America great again.

According to news stories, the Trump campaign fired pollsters who allegedly leaked polling results that show President Trump performing poorly against Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in battleground states.




Regardless of the accuracy of the story, what can polling really tell us now?

At this time in 2015, polls were showing Hillary Clinton 17 points ahead of Donald Trump.

According to Gallup, Ronald Reagan's approval rating was about the same as President Trump's at the same time into his presidency.

In November 1984, a year and a half later, Reagan won a historic landslide victory, winning 49 of 50 states, losing only Walter Mondale's home state of Minnesota.

Turning around the ship of state is not an easy affair, and it takes time.

What happens in November 2020 will reflect three things: the skill with which respective candidates run their campaigns; the extent to which their message resonates; and what actually happens between now and then on the economic, social and international fronts.

Consider Reagan's famous question that propelled him to an upset victory in 1980 and a landslide victory in 1984.

"Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

How do we measure this?

I use my three criteria: the Constitution, Christianity and Capitalism.

On all three fronts, Donald Trump is making America great again.

The Supreme Court now has a solid conservative majority with the addition of Trump nominees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Overall, 107 Trump court nominees have been confirmed, including 40 appeals court nominees.

As a result of a more solidly conservative judicial front, President Trump has improved the environment friendly to the Christian values that we need to restore our respect for life and family.




Aggressive moves in the states to enact anti-abortion laws increase the chances of this vital issue being revisited in the nation's now more conservative high court.

Most recently, new Trump administration rules bring major new constraints on conducting research on fetal tissue using federal funds.

And regarding the third "C," capitalism, Harvard economist Robert Barro estimates that the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act "added 1.1% per year to United States' GDP growth rate for 2018-19." This is a boost in growth almost a third over the average growth rate in the Obama years.

Optimism among the nation's small businesses is surging, according to the most recent National Federation of Independent Business Small Business Optimism Index.

Record-low unemployment among Hispanics and blacks could be paying political dividends for this president.

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows President Trump's approval at 32 percent among Hispanics and 17 percent among blacks. Compared with 29 percent of Hispanics and 8 percent of blacks who voted for Trump in 2016, this could be a game changer favoring President Trump in 2020.

President Trump's courage to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has changed the face of the Middle East, and potentially the world, for the better.

Now a historic U.S.-sponsored meeting is scheduled in Bahrain, where Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar will join with the U.S. to focus on capitalism and prosperity as the keys to Middle East peace rather than the political dead ends of the past.




None of these achievements would be imaginable without Donald Trump's conviction that American greatness is unique and based in key principles rooted in my three Cs -- the Constitution, Christianity and Capitalism.

Even the market-opening trade demands toward China, which have elicited criticism in some circles, are driven by these principles. Success will make everyone, including China, better off.

Donald Trump, the most unconventional president in American history, is delivering, and the dividends are starting to flow.

Americans will face a clear choice in 2020 between individual responsibility and freedom or, alternatively, collectivism and tyranny.

I anticipate a Donald Trump landslide in 2020 not seen since Ronald Reagan.

American greatness.  A great economy.  Great judges.  A strong national defense.  Renewal of optimism.  Energy independence.  A promise to never be socialist.

American greatness.

Our standing and influence is weakening under Trump.

A great economy.

Which is now stalling under tariffs and welfare for farmers.

Great judges.

We'll see how great they are, or are not.

A strong national defense.

We are neither stronger nor weaker than we have been in the last 3 decades.

Renewal of optimism.

Yes, alt+right bigots have been optimistic under the neo-nazi sympathizer in chief.

Energy independence.

Again we are no more of less energy independent than we have been under the last 2 Presidents.

A promise to never be socialist.

A boogeyman trotted out to scare conservatives that can't think past the end of their own noses.

So are you stating that Trump will be eliminating Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security?

Actually he promised to not weaken either social security or Medicare for seniors.

Ok, prove that Trump lied when he said he would preserve social security and seniors Medicare from cuts or age increases for eligibility. And I mean where actual real cuts happened and not just some projected slowdown in someone’s projection of the rate of increases in funding.

One thing we can all be certain of is that Trumps critics and haters are an even bigger collection of sore losers than the supporters of Sore-Loserman 2000.

President Trump Is Delivering

What, did he take a second job at Dominos?

Really true to script, like the coal industry human delivery is a dying industry ( soon to be replaced by driverless vehicles ) bad career choice, figures he would buy in now.

 He has delivered a strong, optimistic, and positive America complete with a powerful economy, strong national defense, awesome judges, energy independence.  We love America and Trump has made us proud.  We categorically despise and dislike the prior regime and the transformation it tried to impose and we flat out rejected.  We Made America Great Again intend to Keep America Great.

No, 45+ rural men are.

65 and older with 32.3 deaths per 100,000

45 to 54 with 29.2 deaths per 100,000

Montana has the highest rates and all but one of the top 15 states is in Trump country.

Maybe you should recognize that Forbes bases it's ratings on the financial information given the them by the 'billionaires'. Trump is a LIAR, everyone KNOWS he lies about his net worth, the value of his assets and his debt.
