The Trump Train is losing steam! From November 2016 to November 2017, 5% of Republicans left the party. I was not able to find any recent statistics but most of the "good stuff" that Trump has done came in the first year, suggesting that if a poll was taken now, it would be much higher.

https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/trumps-victory-1-year-later/data-republican-party-id-drops-after-trump-election-n828141

On another article, it is said that in 2014, white college educated women favored a Democratic Congress by 2% but on a recent poll that number has gone up to 22%.

These statistics were certainly proved to be right in the mid-term elections.

Simply stated, Trump is losing support and therefore is likely too lose the 2020 election.

Not only is the Trump train losing steam, the Trump family is looking at the likely indictment of everyone in it except maybe Baron.

ROTFLOL...

His approval numbers are as high as Obama’s at this point in his presidency...

... and he has a Democrat House and their idiocies to expose for 2-years.

The fun has only begun.

PS. Remember... Trump isn’t lame like a Bush, McCain or Romney... he fights back... and does so skillfully and successfully. It’s why he is POTUS and Criminal Hillary is not.

Boy, for someone who hates Obama you talk about him a lot; you even have an avatar with his face on it. It's a bit weird to be that obsessed with someone who isn't president anymore. Now back to "Criminal Hillary": what exactly has Trump done to lock her up like he said he would? He said he would, and based on how much he talked about her criminality it should have been simple to "lock her up" yet she's still free. So tell us zimmer, why is that?

You could just draw a name at random and you'd almost certainly end up with a better person.


I'm more interested in having an efective leader with a clear vision of what needs to be done and a strong sense of what's best for the USA.

The "better person" is not always an effective leader. Churchill was pretty much reviled by his opposition, but he was the essential man in Britain in 1941.

In the real world, ignoring the butt hurt lefties still smarting from their darling booting the election, Trump is doing/has done a very respectable job judging him on actual results instead of the butt hurt.

Even the Russians have stopped paying Bill a half million dollars per speech. Oh, how the mighty have fallen...

You really need to get some English classes!

Lose steam means go slower and likely not get to where you are going, which in Trump's case it would mean "lose the 2020 election"

The newest investigation ordered by a District Court was started on December 6, 2018.

I don’t “hate” Obama... I find his love of Socialism and trying to foist it on the country and in doing so trying to “fundamentally change” the greatest country in the world... fully moronic.

Obama obviously failed to study history, for if he had, he would have learned his ideas are destructive to the human spirit, to liberty, and to the long term success of any nation.

You see, I have a reason why I oppose Obama. It’s not his skin color, or his status in life, or his history... it’s his anti-American political ideas.

If you love something, you do not want to fundamentally/radically change it.

Do you?

Investigations are going on related to Hillary... and you are right...

The press has failed to inform the people, to dig into the Hillary matter, to expose her extensive criminalities and how the process is going with her investigations. There are few leaks too. Why is that?

PS. Did they teach you how to use paragraphs in school? Let me assist you. Each new topic should find its own home.

PSPS. Weren’t you the one complaining about Trump’s misspelling a couple words? (Facepalm)

The Latest on Criminal Hillary. (Now let’s watch you complain about “the source”... ROTFLOL).

This "data" says that African American republican ID increased by 1% from when Trump was elected to 2017, the year of the Charlottesville attack. How can this be when everything Trump has done, according to the 'news', has been racist against blacks?

The poll is garbage, just like the "Hillary is awesome" polls leading up to the election. There is no way black republicans could have increased under Trump, given the purpose of the poll: Don't show up for Trump at the polls in 2020 because people just don't like Trump, and we shouldn't either.

1. We have zero idea who the nominee of the Socialists of America Partei is (SAP).

2. Democrats just took the House. Democrats, by all indications are going to **** on their shoes.

3. Trump is a fearless fighter... unlike a Bush, McCain or Romney.

4. We heard the same drivel from the media from the day Trump announced. Final result: 306 - 232... Hillary is not, president.

5. Trump has righted the economy after Obama’s Reign-of-Error.

Good Luck!!!

ROTFLOL...

So what specifically do you mean by "his love of socialism"? Are there particular policies which you're referring to?

This is an interesting position to take from someone who supports Trump because one of the things he's changed is how he communicates with the public. Do you think he needs the media to investigate Hillary Clinton the way he professed he would while on the campaign trail? It's not a media investigation that matters, it's a legal one which does. He stated he would have his AG investigate her when he won, but then in an interview he stated he didn't want to hurt the Clintons anymore and that they've gone through enough. Why? One would think if there was as much criminality as he claimed it would be an open and shut case.

That post is such bull****. I have no idea where to even begin ripping it to shreds. Let's just go for the bold.

You do realize that your Boi Trump ran on the theme of fundamentally changing America. Right? He called it making America great again, a vague slogan that very stupid people gravitated toward but a slogan which clearly stated his aim to fundamentally/radically change the country.

Hmmm...you probably do not get that. Which explains so very much about your post.

ROTFLOL... “fundamentally change America” was Obama’s calling.

Trump wanted to restore America. Make Her Great Again. Of course, to Leftists, individual Liberty and looking out for the country and its citizens first is “radical”. Thank you for making that point crystal clear to all.*

The Great Divider in his own words:

* What is it about LIBERTY from government, and the greatness of America Leftists so despise?

Tell me, what was Obama “fundamentally changing” America too? More individual liberty? No. More state control.

The media passed on reporting Hillary’s criminalities, and it is often reporting that:

1. Shapes public opinion.

2. Causes investigations to occur. You OBVIOUSLY did not watch the video, for that salient point was made clearly and concisely in said video.

“Rest on your (my) laurels” when Hillary is locked up? I don’t think you understand that quoted phrase means... for your usage is odd to say the least.

Since it has been shown time and time again that there are two bubbles and NBC has no clue what's happen in Trumps. As one who actually connects to the Trump side, yes there is some truth to a statement that Trump would have trouble with a demotivated base if an election were held today. A lot of that has to do with a general feeling of fatigue with TDS, the aftermath of a vicious campaign against Trump allies and a president in need of making compromises with a republican establishment to govern that many in his base despise.

I would not draw too many conclusions for 2020, Trump would be more than capable of turning this around with some wins and efforts to fire up the base. With the way things are looking, you can almost guarantee the swamp, democrats, media & big tech are their own worst enemy and make no mistake 2020 is theirs to lose. The people are passive and demands modest.

Trump for any shortcoming exposed something so insidious I don’t think most people even openly suspicious were expecting it to be this rotten. I also think we actually thought him more corrupt than he was based on what we seeing out of the investigations, but lots still to come.
