Some will vote for Trump.  Some will vote for others.  Probably most haven’t made up their minds yet, or may change their mind in the next two years.

i don’t understand the purpose of this question.

You never answered my question about Trump poll numbers vs specific candidates.  Talk about bobbing and weaving.  But, I expected that.  No big deal.

I have no idea what your are referring to.

But you often make up things, so I don't know if this is a serious question or not.

You have stated that I have said things that I haven't, and distorted my words.

No surprise.

DJT does the same thing, all the time.

Well, perhaps your wish will come true. Democrats will roll in 2020 and there will be enough poor people for Dollar General to flourish.

Presidents and the US Economy

Quote

During the 64 years that make up the core 16 terms, real GDP growth averaged 3.33 percent at an annual rate. But the average growth rates under Democratic and Republican presidents were starkly different: 4.33 percent and 2.54 percent, respec- tively. This 1.79 percentage point gap (henceforth, the D-R gap) is astoundingly large relative to the sample mean.4 It implies that over a typical four-year presidency the US economy grew by 18.5 percent when the president was a Democrat, but only by 10.6 percent when he was a Republican. And since the standard deviations of quarterly growth rates are roughly equal (3.8 percent for Democrats, 3.9 percent for Republicans, annualized), Democratic presidents have presided over growth that was faster but not more volatile.

We have spoken about the myth of fiscal conservatism before.

I didn’t know that.

Please educate me some more, with specifics.

How does Donald Trump being president directly effect employees being laid off at the GM plant that makes Chevy’s best selling cars?  And, whatever explanation you come up with, educate me on why that isn’t causing other automakers to lay off workers?

Ohio GM Workers Voted for Trump. Now They Want Him to ‘Step Up’

President Donald Trump said he expects General Motors to keep an Ohio assembly complex open after its production of the Chevrolet Cruze ends early next year. Bryan Keeley said he wants to believe it, but he’s heard talk like that before.

Keeley is one of the thousands of workers at GM’s Lordstown factory near Youngstown who learned that the plant is being idled in March, with no new production promised. He said he voted for Trump two years ago because of the Republican’s vow to help American workers.

“I thought he was going to do miracles for us, so did a lot of other autoworkers,’’ Keeley, 46, said outside Ross’ Eatery and Pub near the plant. Keeley has worked for GM for 26 years but has been laid off since June. “He needs to step up to the plate and do what he said.’’

United Auto Workers Remember Trump's Promise to Keep Their Jobs

President Trump’s 2016 campaign pledge to bring back U.S manufacturing jobs suffered a big setback this week when General Motors announced it will close five factories and lay off nearly 15,000 workers.

It was a devastating blow to the president’s repeated promises to rebuild the nation’s Midwestern Rust Belt factories in what he said would be a renaissance of new economic growth and job creation.

“If I’m elected, you won’t lose one plant, you’ll have plants coming into this country, you’re going to have jobs again, you won’t lose one plant, I promise you that,” Trump said in October 2016 at a campaign rally in Warren, Mich.

Laid-off GM workers and their supporters gather for a vigil—and vow to fight.

If workers laid off at the GM Lordstown plant this week wondered whether anyone in their community cared about their fate, they don’t have any doubts now. On Tuesday, Youngstown teachers showed up in the school district parking lot in their GM vehicles and held signs in solidarity with the GM workers.

Then on Wednesday, right around closing time, a cluster of GM workers punched out for the last time. Instead of going straight home or to a restaurant or local bar, they joined a vigil across the divided highway with union leaders, friends who were laid off in earlier cutbacks, retirees. A Bernie Sanders delegate who had no connection to the plant beyond being a member of the community was there, too. He had been protesting the plant’s closure for the past 40 days, standing out in the cold, usually alone...

Thanks for sharing, herring.

I do not pretend to understand the cavalier attitude some towards the newly unemployed.

So again, thank you for sharing.

Honest question to Christians: isn't it just a little weird to have the President autograph your bible? And on the cover with a sharpie?

It is the weirdest thing after evangelicals believing that God elevated a lying, cheating, amoral, and corrupt womanizer to make them wealthy.

Isn't just a particular sect of Christianity that you are referring to?

Evangelicals.

Like Sarah Sanders, who believes God wanted Trump in the WH.

Hard to believe Trump would even accept the offer to autograph a Bible.

He isn't a prophet or saint or clergy member.

It seems pretty lame and sacrilegious to me, but I am not a Christian.

Actually no, I am just asking Christians in general, that I think view the Bible as a sacred text.

Selling presidential access at Mara Lago

Quote

Further down on the webpage, however, they described providing access to Trump and Mar-a-Lago.

Services they offered, according to an archived version of the website, included " Presidential Roundtable and Presidential Dinner," "taking photos with the President," v arious VIP activities at Trump Lake," "the opportunity to interact with the president," " White House and Capitol Hill Dinner," "First Lady Charity Ball," and "meet President Trump."

Shameless.

Curious to know if he would have done the same if he was visiting a mosque?
