Skip to comments.Fake Poll News: Public Says Trump Can't Handle Being President?
Posted on 01/04/2017 3:33:09 AM PST by IBD editorial writer
allup poll seemed to put a damper on Donald Trump's presidency before he's even sworn in, with fewer than half the public saying he's up to the job of being president.
At least, that's how the results are being reported. But a closer look at the data tells a much different story.
The Gallup results got huge pickup in the press, with most running headlines along the lines of "Most Americans Don't Think Donald Trump Can Handle Being President."
Gallup asked a series of questions to gauge the public's confidence in Trump's ability to handle the economy, prevent major scandals, use military force wisely and other presidential duties.
The results look pretty dismal. Just 46%, for example, are confident that Trump can handle an international crisis, and only 47% are confident that he will use military force wisely. Both were far lower than Trump's two predecessors.

The American People CHOSE Mr. Trump.
It is time to tar, feather, and indict the reporters
for lying, sedition, and treason.
That is rather worrisome. This shows that something like greater than 50% of those polled pay very little attention to the candidates.
How anyone could have been confidant that Obama could handle an international crisis or use the military force wisely is a great mystery. Not only did Obama have no experience going into the presidency, he never learned a thing while president. His foreign policy has left the world in a very dangerous situation. He has only misused the military.
Trump, on the other hand, has already shown that he has a keen grasp of the issues and knows our current precarious position. I expect he will do far more to stabilize the world than even the most wishful thinker could give Obama (undeserved) credit for.
Next story from Gallup,Hillary to be sworn in January 20th 2017
A poll of adults. That's why it doesn't match with the recent election results.
Ahhh polls. I remember those things.
Seeing the words “fake news” will be to 2017 that “amish” once was.
Conclusion: Democrats hate Trump.
That's not a bad thing. After 8 years of a "Kinder, Gentler" George W. Bush and after nominating one gentleman who was a war hero and nominating another gentleman who was an accomplished businessman and watching them get their clocks cleaned -- I've wondered if we needed a savage fighter who takes no prisoners.
(Trump did not win the popular vote -- but 5th Grade Civics should have taught everyone that's not how anyone ever won the White House. Trump spent 1/2 as much money as Hillary's campaign -- and I can't believe that if Trump had doubled his spending that he would not have received more votes. But what would the point have been? Except to waste money on campaign consultants and media outlets?)
“Ahhh polls. I remember those things.”........
He will do a better job at it than the lazy nappy haired imposter living in the WH for the past 8 years. Trump hasn’t even been sworn in and he is light years ahead of what odumbo has failed to do. Hang on folks, its going to be a ride to remember.
President Trump has an IQ at least 40 points above the African Muslim , Trump has double the work ethic, Trump has integrity, and he loves American citizens. Fact is, there are at least 20 million American citizens who would have made far superior Presidents to Hussein Obama made and he know it.

Sorry for the lack of editing in previous posts.
He’ll have the MSM running scared for years. He doesn’t need them and they know it.
Looky!!!!!! It’s Fake News!
All he needs to do is tweet to us that it’s Fake News! Then send Spucer out with facts!
Poll this: Do you believe the media (NYT,WAPO,PBS,NPR,CNN,MSNBC,CBS,ABC)will give Trump a fair shake?
Yes, I remember the Fake Polls that said Hillary is going to win & that Obama has a high approval rating!!!!! LOL!
I have some Drama Queens friends on Facebook who are terrified of Trump and deactivating their pages as they cannot stand the “vitriol” from the republicans (sic) while the world is crumbling around them.....the media has done a good job in brainwashing them....if you express an opinion contrary to theirs you are seen as an idiot who better benefit from their superior intellect and judgement instead of following such a moron and dangerous new President....Go, Trump, go!!!!!!!!!!
Even more amusing - “Obama is the smartest man to ever be elected President.”
Yes, indeed I have read that in various publications. They say it as if it is established fact rather than their own fantasy.
Spucer needs a mustache.
