There will be no independent thinking. None of that allowed. He doesn't want his supporters thinking for themselves because using one's own brain might expose him as a phony and charlatan. If any one person took just a second to stop and question themselves how this individual congresswoman, even if only one of the lies were true, was going to hurt and harm them personally and bring about the downfall of America it might be eye-opening.

Donald Trump needs his supporters to hate the United States and turn their backs on the founding principles and core values of the nation. As evidenced by this thread, and so many astonishing others over the years, it seems hate and lies and fear are contagious and effectively being used to annihilate the very America he pretends to make great again.

The only approval rating that matters are those of her constituents. Who thought up this latest talking point and to convince whom?

Trump's campaign machine wants us to keep focused on this latest "enemy of the people" while they and he go about the business of destroying all that we once stood for. We are losing democracy and America.

This is how its done folks.
Excellent post! In other threads about AOC, or Ilhan Omar I've asked "how can one congress member out of 435 impact your life"? I have never gotten a response, but I hope maybe one or two people read it and will think about it next time President Potty Mouth starts ranting about one of these women.

Your politics certainly are very closely aligned with those of "Trump Republicans", so while you might be registered as an independent, I doubt if you would ever cross over and vote for anyone other than Trump or someone he supports.

The poll was conducted on the behest of the Democratic National Committee. I suggest you read the OP again. Clearly you don't understand what bad news this is for the Democrats and how Trump is flogging them rentlessly.

And now he has these clowns too.

What is her approval rating in her district?


That is the only number that matters regardless of who agrees or disagrees nationally. We know this to be true as most congressman with national notoriety are mostly negative in National polls, regardless of party.

Yes, very good post. Bullied and scapegoated "enemy of the month." This is our democracy and what we've come to w/ him at the helm. He can't achieve too much in policy and practice for the US so distract the people. Find an enemy, harp on that, get everyone riled up, lather, rinse and repeat. Meanwhile, we have difficult problems that must be solved and should be addressed. He is not there to create chaos, but to make order. He is supposed to be serving us. We are not supposed to be part of his vendettas and agendas which are childish and dysfunctional to the country.

Who cares? Steve King says outrageously crazy crap every day, no one takes him seriously, not even Republicans. When people continue to talk about four female house members they simply give them more power. Ignore them and they will probably not get re-elected.

There is no evidence that the DNC commissioned it, or even that such a poll exists. It makes no sense that the DNC would pay to find out what white males with lousy educations think of those four.

In regards to this topic, it's irrelevant. Trump is running a national election, not one focused on her district.

Then still this Axios posted survey is irrelevant. I know it helps Trump but first of all, Axios is a known centerist leaning left publication. The MSM even CNN have attacked progressive Democrats whether you talk AOC or Sanders, as much as they do Trump. Well except for the race-baiting rants of Trump...
