    Does ANYONE poll well? Congress has been poorly received for at least a decade; President polls poorly; Dems AND GOP poll badly.
    Frankly, I'm not impressed by any argument that goes "I don't suck as badly as HE does".

    Democrats favorable 38%. Republicans 33%. Trump 38%. Congress 14%.

    Seriously, if you're EVER below 40, you don't have anything in the "I don't suck as bad as he does" line.
    It's like pigs deciding who stinks the least.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    Funny thing about that, Trumps approval ratings are low but they're still smoking the congressional approval numbers.

    My original question in post number 13

    Sure. All the polls CNN, MSNBC, CBS etal. took of the DNC Headquaters during the Obama administration said he was the greatest thing since sliced white bread.

    I'm asking GURPS in particular because, you know, he created the thread. I'm asking why create this thread in order to point out poll numbers that indicate low approval ratings for the Democrat party only to ignore poll numbers that indicate low approval numbers for Trump?

    But don't let that stop you from posting your bull####.
    It never stopped you from posting yours. LMAO

    So you post polls you don't trust to make a point.
    That certainly is an intelligent thing to do.




    Not.

    This thread was created to point out how low the Dem Party popularity is based on a poll by CNN. GURPS, the author of said thread, claims he's surprised that CNN would publish such a poll due to their left-wing bias.

    I pointed out that polls regarding Trump's approval are low, and published by Fox News, a right-wing biased news source. So it shouldn;t be surprising that CNN would publish this poll considering Fox published one showing low approval ratings for Trump.

    Not one time did I claim any trust in any polls. Have you ever been polled? I know I haven't. I don't trust any poll and think it's stupid to use them as some sort of metric for how one (or a party) is viewed in the eyes of the public.

    I hope stringin you along by your nose hairs helps you understand a bit more.

    about 4 months ago, on a host of items - none ID ' the poll I was answering questions for


    and it jumped from TV Shows to politics
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
