The daily Presidential Tracking Poll commissioned by Rasmussen Reports shows that 48 percent of “likely U.S. voters” approve of the President’s job performance. Fifty-one percent disapprove.

TRUMP GETS STANDING O FROM DEMS?
Calls on divided Congress to end political stalemate...
Takes swipe at Mueller...
'Trump is divisive. He splits his opposition perfectly'...

Reporters Stunned by Appeal to Both Sides...
NBCNEWS Chuck Todd Blasts 'Theater of the Absurd'...
Ocasio-Cortez refuses applause for 'cooperation, compromise, common good'...
NOT SORRY...
CNN: 59% Had 'Very Positive' View of Speech...
TV Ratings Rise Over 2018, Obama... Developing...

Several veteran White House reporters noted — to their surprise — that President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday evening won applause from Democrats as well as Republicans.

John Roberts, the chief White House correspondent for Fox News, who is often skeptical of the president, was stunned at the reaction Trump evoked from Democrats despite the confrontational mood in Washington:

Well, THAT was an interesting series of moments.

Pelosi politely claps as @realDonaldTrump proclaims "America will NEVER be a socialist country.

There were clearly differences of opinion on some issues, but I have not seen a SOTU in recent years when the opposition applauded to the degree it did tonight.

Well, I can honestly say I have never heard "Happy Birthday" sung at a State Of The Union....

>@realDonaldTrump was wise to accept the postponement and give the SOTU in Congress.

===

The president and his speechwriters have accomplished something remarkable here tonight — striking several themes that have drawn applause from both sides of the chamber. That is not unusual for a state of the union, but it is unusual for this President. #SOTU

Trump even managed to win a series of standing ovations from Democrat women wearing white in protest.

Though arguably he gave little ground on policy, Trump honored national heroes, and pitched his speech to national themes and priorities shared in common by most Americans — including the opposition.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) applauded President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech, saying the speech was “strong” and appealed to “our patriotism and common values as Americans.”

 

“The president’s speech was strong, well-delivered, and appealed to our patriotism and common values as Americans,” a statement from Romney reads, per Fox 13 Salt Lake City. “He highlighted several critical policy areas where there are opportunities for both parties to work together — including lowering health care costs, reforming trade policies to better protect American workers, and strengthening border security and immigration enforcement.”

WSJ: Who's Afraid of Socialism?

Now that Donald Trump has criticized the “new calls to adopt socialism in this country,” Democrats and the media are already protesting that the socialist label doesn’t apply to them. But what are they afraid of—the label or their own ideas?...


The Longest Day for Trump's Adversaries...

Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was a masterpiece—for his purposes. Two chaotic years into his term, Mr. Trump appeared presidential for seemingly the first time and dramatically advanced his chances for re-election in 2020.

Speech: A "Masterpiece"? ...

SATIRE: ‘Republicans Are Brainwashed,’ Democrats Dutifully Chant While Clad In Identical White Uniforms

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In remarks leading up to the State of the Union address Tuesday evening, Democratic lawmakers accused Republicans of being brainwashed and following Trump no matter what he does, all while wearing matching white uniforms and only clapping when their party leaders signaled it was OK to do so.

"Republicans are all brainwashed to agree with whatever Trump says," one congresswoman said after the address as she stood in solidarity with her fellow Democrats all in matching, identical uniforms. "It's really sad that half our nation can't think for themselves and only do whatever the Republican Party tells them to do."

"When we can't think for ourselves, we've lost what made this nation great," she added, reading off a script prepared for her by party leaders.

Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez-Lunatic-300x157: Would a male this stupid have been elected?

Communist Subversive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Trump Attacked Socialism Using Venezuela to ‘Confuse The Public,’

Argues Socialism Should be Implemented in America Because Its ‘Popular’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to President Trump denouncing socialism in his State of the Union address on Tuesday night. In an appearance on MSNBC shortly after, Ocasio-Cortez said Trump is "losing on the issues" and that is why he made an "ad hominem" attack on socialism. She said he attacked socialism and tied it to Venezuela as a way to "confuse the public."

"What did you make of the president's aggressive statement about Venezuela tonight, and he talked about being a socialist country and how we're never going to be a socialist country. It was pretty truculent but it tied the notion of socialism to that particular regime. What do you think about the president, why he did that?" MSNBC's Chris Matthews asked.

"I think that he needs to do it because he feels like -- he feels himself losing on the issues," Ocasio-Cortez said. "Every single policy proposal that we have adopted and presented to the American public has been overwhelmingly popular, even some with a majority of Republican voters supporting what we're talking about."
"I think he sees himself losing on the issues, he sees himself losing on the wall in the southern border, and he needs to grasp at an ad hominem attack and this is his way of doing it," the Congresswoman said. "What we need to realize is happening is this is an issue of authoritarian regime versus democracy. In order for him to try to dissuade or throw people off the scent of the trail, he has to really make and confuse the public. And I think that that's exactly what he's trying to do."

TRUMP at 52% - Best poll since Inaugural

Major Poll Shows Trump’s Approval Rating Keeps Getting Higher and Higher

After President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, he got a boost when Rasmussen Reports showed that the President’s approval rating had jumped to 50 percent.

Now that the American people have had a week to think about his speech, he’s going even higher.

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance,” Rasmussen reported Monday. “Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.”

“Trump’s highest level of approval since shortly after his inauguration,” Rasmussen noted. “The latest figures include 39% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove.”

51%! (-2% Net Strong)

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 37% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -2. (see trends).

Hillary Clinton last week urged Democrats not to be civil with Republicans over political issues, prompting rare disagreement from former First Lady Michelle Obama. Voters, too, disagree with Clinton but, unlike her, don’t expect things to improve even if Democrats return to power in Congress.

Three weeks from the election, though, voters see Trump as more of a positive than they did a year ago.

Voters are more confident now than they have been in over six years that U.S. elections are fair to them, though more than one-in-four still think it’s too easy to vote in this country today

TRUMP 2020 - Is he a shoo-in ?

Trump Just Might Have Won the 2020 Election Today

The president's speech at CPAC was a bedazzling mix of bravado, B.S., humor, and positive vision no Democrat will be able to top.

It's way too early to be thinking this, much less saying it, but what the hell: If Donald Trump is able to deliver the sort of performance he gave today at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the annual meeting of right-wingers held near Washington, D.C., his reelection is a foregone conclusion.

There is simply no potential candidate in the Democratic Party who wouldn't be absolutely blown off the stage by him. I say this as someone who is neither a Trump fanboy nor a Never Trumper. But he was not simply good, he was Prince-at-the-Super-Bowl great, deftly flinging juvenile taunts at everyone who has ever crossed him, tossing red meat to the Republican faithful, and going sotto voce serious to talk about justice being done for working-class Americans screwed over by global corporations.

In a heavily improvised speech that lasted over two hours, the 72-year-old former (future?) reality TV star hit every greatest hit in his repertoire ("Crooked Hillary," "build the wall," "America is winning again," and more all made appearances) while riffing on everything from the Green New Deal to his own advanced age and weird hair to the wisdom of soldiers over generals. At times, it was like listening to Robin Williams' genie in the Disney movie Aladdin, Howard Stern in his peak years as a radio shock jock, or Don Rickles as an insult comic. When he started making asides, Trump observed, "This is how I got elected, by going off script." Two years into his presidency and he's just getting warmed up.

First and foremost, Trump was frequently funny and outre in the casually mean way that New Yorkers exude like nobody else in America. "You put the wrong people in a couple of positions," he said, lamenting the appointment of Robert Mueller as a special prosecutor, "and all of a sudden they're trying to take you out with bullshit." He voiced Jeff Sessions in a mock-Southern accent, recusing "muhself" and asked the adoring crowd why the former attorney generally hadn't told him he was going to do that before he was appointed.

Democrats backing the Green New Deal (GND) "are talking about trains to Hawaii," he said. "They haven't figured out how to get to Europe yet." He begged the Democrats not to abandon the GND because he recognizes that the more its details and costs are discussed, the more absurd it will become. "When the wind stops blowing, that's the end of your energy," he said at one point. "Did the wind stop blowing, I'd like to watch television today, guys?" "We'll go back to boats," he said, drawing huge laughs when he added, "I don't want to talk [the Democrats] out of [the GND], I just want to be the Republican who runs against it."

He railed against Never-Trump Republicans: "They're on mouth-to-mouth resuscitation," he said, adding "they're basically dishonest people" that no one cares about. He joked about being in the White House all alone on New Year's because of the government shutdown. "I was in the White House and I was lonely, so I went to Iraq," he said, recounting that when his plane was approaching the U.S. airstrip in Iraq, all lights had to be extinguished for landing. "We spend trillions of dollars in the Middle East and we can't land planes [in Iraq] with the lights on," he said, shaking his head in disbelief. "We gotta get out." He then riffed on the generals he met there who, contrary to the Pentagon brass he dealt with, said they could vanquish ISIS in a week. He claimed to have talked with a general named "Raising Cane," which might be Brigadier Gen. J. Daniel Caine, but Trump is the farthest thing from a details guy, right? "Sometimes I learn more from soldiers than I do generals," he said, deftly moving from jokes to more-substantive discussions of policies or issues.

You can cover a huge amount of material in two-hours-plus, and Trump certainly did that. After speaking sympathetically of immigrants who want to come to the United States and saying that we need more people because the economy (well, his economy, as he takes credit for it) is doing so well, he immediately dismissed the Guatemalans, Salvadorans, and Hondurans traveling north in caravans across Mexico. In a bizarre display of simultaneous empathy and contempt, he talked at length about how female migrants are being systematically "raped" but also how the caravans were filled with criminals and drug dealers. It was "sad to see how stupid we've become" to think that the caravans are filled with good people. As he has been doing since his State of the Union address, he has been laying out a partial, inchoate case for a skills-based immigration program. He explained walking away from the table with North Korea even as he noted yet again that he has a great relationship with the dictator Kim Jong Un. In a long riff on trade policy, he invoked the "Great Tariff Debate of 1888" and how China "and everyone else" had been taking advantage of us until he started pushing back. He took time to talk about how no, really, the crowd at his inauguration was in fact historically large despite all publicly available evidence.

All in all, it was, in the words of Daniel Dale, the Washington correspondent for the Toronto Star, "one of the least-hinged speeches Trump has given in a long time." It was indeed all over the place but like the weirdly wide-ranging and digressive speech in which he declared a national emergency, it was also an absolute tour de force, laying out every major point of disagreement between Republicans and Democrats (abortion, the Second Amendment, and taxes, among other things) while tagging the latter aggressively as socialists who will not only end the private provision of health care but take over the energy sector too. Those charges take on new life in the wake of the announcement of the GND and comments, however short-lived, by Democrats such as Kamala Harris, who at one point recently called for an end to private health care. And over 100 House Democrats have signed on to a plan that would end private health insurance in two years. For all the biting criticism and dark humor in today's speech, Trump has mostly ditched the "American Carnage" rhetoric that marked his first Inaugural Address, pushing onto liberals and Democrats all the negativity and anger that used to surround him like the dust cloud surrounds Pigpen in the old Peanuts cartoons. "We have people in Congress right now who hate our country," he said. "We can name every one of them. Sad, very, very sad."

At moments, he seemed to be workshopping his themes and slogans for 2020. "We believe in the American Dream, not the socialist nightmare," he averred at one point. "Now you have a president who finally standing up for America." The future, he said "does not belong to those who believe in socialism. The future belongs to those who believe in freedom. I've said it before and will say it again: America will never be a socialist country." That's a line that may not work forever, but it will almost certainly get the job done in 2020.
