Is there some reason you folks believe polls now after the thrashing you took in 2016?

Not that I'm agreeing with you about obama because I'm not but it's about protecting our borders like the Constitution says.

A lot of the GOP is coming off like hypocrites. I wonder how they defend their vote when asked about why it's different in their mind.

I just realize that the pollsters know more about what they're doing than you and other Trumplings.

OK, better get back to that business of "winning."

So now is he going to bomb Al Qaeda?

The civilians in their buses, mostly elderly, women and children, were guarded by "rebels" of Ahrar al Sham. They were hungry. Someone appeared on the scene and distributed crisps. When children flocked around the food distribution a blue car drove up and a very large explosion occurred. Four buses full of people and a number of cars were totally destroyed

127 of the civilians, only a mile or two from the safe government area, were killed in the suicide attack including 95 children. Many more were wounded. An unknown number of Ahrar al Sham "rebel" guards were also killed. There is no serious disagreement about what happened.

It is obvious that the suicide attack was committed by al-Qaeda in Syria. No government aligned element could have crossed into rebel held territory. The government aligned forces have not committed any suicide attacks while al-Qaeda as well as Ahrar al Sham have committed hundreds. This was a "rebel" suicide attack, likely by al-Qaeda, against government aligned civilian refugees.

I've asked over and over what is it that we have accomplished and what is the end game. There has been no answer.

I indeed do believe what I said.

Republicans opposed Obama for being black, but since Trump is White and Rich, he's obviously the good guy and can be supported.

As much as the GOP refuses to admit it, racism and discrimination are the driving force in why people vote Republican. Has nothing to do with economics like they claim.

You and tRump's hardcore dead enders are welcome to ignore the polls.

Because it doesn't matter what your opinion of them is.

The ones who REALLY pay attention to those same polls include:

1) tRump (more than anyone else)
2) Every Pub in congress
3) All Pub governors
4) All GOP officials from the RNC down to your local precinct
5) All foreign leaders, especially in Russia, China, N Korea, ISIS, etc. They all know what his numbers mean.

It's clear that tRump is the weakest US prez since Herbert Hoover. And everyone on that list is acutely aware of it and will be watching those poll numbers closely because they're the indicator of how much power he wields.

Currently, it's not much. He isn't even in control of his own party. For that matter, he can't even take charge of his own White House staff.

You know, the ones he appointed himself. Supposedly.

Very amusing.

Who do you trust to make the final shot of the game? I don't trust the ball boy. That's the difference.
