The latest Gallup poll is bad news for Democrats

The latest Gallup poll is bad news for Democrats

As I mentioned earlier, the latest Gallup poll released this morning shows President Trump with a 49% approval number – which is Gallup’s highest approval of his presidency.

But that’s only part of the bad news for Democrats coming out of the latest Gallup poll.

When you look deeper, things only look grimmer.

But first, one last thing on Iowa because it does relate to the details from Gallup.

One thing that has gotten overshadowed (pun intended) by the abysmal mishandling of the Democrat caucus is the low turnout from yesterday.

Just last week, Politico reported that Democrats were anticipating very high voter turnout in Iowa.

The Iowa Democratic Party has been preparing for record-breaking turnout for more than a year, driven both by Democrats’ angst about President Donald Trump and by an unusually large field of candidates — many of them with their own significant, independent turnout operations. The state party chairman, Troy Price, said the party is anticipating more caucus-goers than in 2008, which set a record when 239,000 Democratic voters participated, lifting Obama to victory. [Emphasis Dianny’s]

Yeah.  They were wrong.

The Washington Post reported this morning that now the Iowa Democratic Party is saying that last night’s caucus is “on pace” with what they had in 2016.

Huh.

And with such an enormous field of candidates too.

Say, what happened to all that “Democrats are going to turn out in droves because Orange Man Bad” wishful thinking, guys?

Well, perhaps we get a little peek into why from the latest Gallup poll:

As Trump’s job approval rating has improved, so has the image of the Republican Party. Now, 51% of Americans view the Republican Party favorably, up from 43% in September. It is the first time GOP favorability has exceeded 50% since 2005. [Emphasis Dianny’s]

Huh.

But wait!  There’s more!!!

Meanwhile, 45% of Americans have a positive opinion of the Democratic Party, a slight dip from 48% in September.

Gosh.  I wonder what happened between September and now that would cause the Republican approval to climb by eight points to its highest percentage in fifteen years while the Democrat approval went down?

Hmmmmm…

Oh, yeah! Now I remember.

Thanks Adam Schiff!

The Democrats put all their 2020 eggs in the impeachment basket and, boy, was it is an aggressively bad idea.

I’ve been saying for a year now that voters who gave the Democrats the House in 2018 weren’t voting for this garbage.

They weren’t voting Democrat so that shrill, angry little socialists could run the show.  And they weren’t voting Democrat so that Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler could spend the first year gunning for Trump.

As stupid as it might be, they actually thought the Democrats meant what they said when they promised to work on the things that mattered to these voters.

Rookie mistake, to be sure.  But it is what it is.

And now the pendulum is swinging back.

Iowa didn’t have that “record-breaking turnout” inspired by “Orange Man Bad.” And Impeachment, while wholly satisfying to the Media Handmaids and the Twitter ResistanceLOL, doesn’t play well among actual living, breathing voters.

Speaking of the Twitter ResistanceLOL.

In addition to the news from this latest Gallup poll, yesterday NBC News offered this nugget of information:

Yet this small percentage of Twitter users are dictating news cycles. More than that, they’re also dictating the entire Democrat agenda.

And therein lies the Democrats’ problem going into 2020.

They have stupidly spent the last three years believing that the raging hysterics on Twitter typified the average voter.

That’s why they blundered ahead with Impeachment.

That’s why they’re gob-smacked over the lack of enthusiasm and support among actual voters.

At this rate, I just do not see the Democrats learning from their mistakes.

And I admit. That gives me a happy.

    I’m guessing that it is something entirely different when a girl “gets a happy.” Unless there’s something you want to tell us? 🙂

    The bean counters of the DNC Iowa caucuses should not have taken that last bong hit before tallying the totals from last night. It is obvious to most stoners that someone new to coding hit the delete key instead of the compile totals key and erased all of the data, and were giggling too hard to realize all they had to do was hit esc back to recoup error, laughter ensued as they called out for anchovie with pineapple pizzas, instead of the headquarters of DNC Des Moines and then put them on hold, then hung up when no one answered them. Hours later they were taking a nap when someone started beating on the front door and they thought they were busted, and threw everything in the garbage disposal, not realizing the circus was in town with all of the flashing lights and people yelling. Oh well, another night in stupidville finally came to a close.

          All the democraps in the above photo just realized that schiffty just had a swallowswell movement from the anchovie/pineapple pizza left over, and it was a wet one, full of robust flavor they are all accustomed to in the house committees they share.

    That picture of Schiff & Co. provides a better explanation than any scholarly document on why we have an Electoral College — just look at all those useless Californians and New Yorkers. Thank God for flyover-country!

    The Cantrelates vying for the Demoncratic Party nomination have problems. The love affair between Hillary and Bernie plus AOC as the third wheel! Threesomes very seldom work out..
