This article was posted originally at The Hill. “Is Trump finished?” one of his savviest conservative supporters asked me recently. In other words, will restless Republicans, unable to achieve any legislative victories, turn on the president of the United States? Abandon hope all ye who succumb to this temptation. Turning on Trump is not the first, difficult step to GOP survival; instead, it would be a death blow to conservative resistance and revival in America. The full shock and awe fury of the Left and its media dogs has been unleashed on Trump for one reason: Trump has uncovered the specific
According to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, President Trump’s approval rating has dropped in the wake of the Charlottesville controversy and hit a new low during the first year of his presidency. Thirty-nine percent of voters approve of the President’s job performance, while 56 percent disapprove. Much of this can be attributed to a slight decline in approval from Republican voters, with just 73 percent of Republicans expressing approval, down from 81 percent a week earlier. This dip should come as no surprise after the mainstream media spent more than a week spreading #FakeNews about President Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville.
From the moment he launched his presidential campaign two summers ago, Donald Trump has been a magnet for bad press. It started with those infamous lines on immigration from his announcement speech: “When Mexico sends their people, they’re not sending their best…” Those comments earned Trump a tsunami of negative media attention as well as seemingly endless criticism from political leaders, both Democrats and Republicans.

Bloomberg is out with a new shock poll: just 39 percent of Americans view failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton favorably. Meanwhile, according to the same poll, 41 percent of Americans view President Donald Trump favorably. Hillary Clinton is in a league of her own when it comes to failed presidential candidates. Typically, as Gallup explains, failed presidential candidates see a boost in popularity post-election: This was especially true for 2008 runner-up John McCain, who saw an enormous 14-point bump after losing his race against President Obama. But it has not been so true for Hillary Clinton, who has publicly blamed everyone from
I had the opportunity to sit down this week with Jack Posobiec, author of Citizens for Trump: The Inside Story of the People’s Movement to Take Back America. Posobiec is a firestarter, activist, Christian, veteran, citizen journalist, and die-hard Trump supporter from Pennsylvania who gained notoriety in 2016 and 2017 for being an outspoken conservative with a pretty significant Twitter following. Recently, Posobiec made national news when he, along with another pro-Trump protester, Laura Loomer, disrupted a Shakespearean production of Julius Caesar in New York City where the actors had controversially been staging an assassination of President Trump. Posobiec joined
After several long walks in the woods and months of sober self-reflection, Hillary Clinton thinks she has figured out why she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump. Clinton sat down with Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times at the Women in the World Summit to talk about the election. She listed off four primary reasons for losing, according to NBC News: Russia. “A foreign power meddled with our election,” she said, labeling it “an act of aggression.” She called for an independent, bipartisan investigation into the Kremlin’s involvement and said the probe should examine whether there was collusion with the Trump
