Donald Trump tangerer Barack Obamas popularitet etter ett år ved makten, viser en måling fra Rasmussen Reports. Det var Rasmussen som kom nærmest valgresultatet 8. november.

On Dec. 29, 2009, 46% of voters approved of the job Obama was doing, while 53% disapproved. For Trump the numbers are 45-53, according to the Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll.

Mediene rapporterer ikke positive nyheter for Trump, men utelukkende negative. De er redd han skal få medvind.

Men den voldsomme anti-Trump-dekningen har bidratt til å svinge velgerne. De orker ikke mer Trump-bashing.

Det er en diskrepans i forhold til snittet som Realclearpolitics opererer med. Det var det også før valget. Valget ga Rasmussen rett. Oppslutningen om Trump ble undervurdert. Det er ikke urimelig å anta at det samme gjelder nå.

Når man tenker på den voldsomme kampanjen Trump er blitt utsatt for er det ganske utrolig at han har 45 % av velgerne. Og han har ennå ikke høstet fruktene av skattereformen. Det er meget mulig at Trump er ved å plassere seg i i favorabel utgangsposisjon for valget til Kongressen neste høst. Demokratene kan få en psykisk knekk.

Megan Fox beskriver hvordan det er å bevege seg ute blant folk. Anti-Trumperne føler de har rett til å utbrodere sin antipati og avkreve andre bekjennelse. Men forstår de virkelig ikke hvor opinionen går? USA er ved å bli Trump-country. Det er bare på kystene at det er liberal dominans.

 

If you are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) so acute that you have forgotten how to behave in public, you need to seek help. Get a grip. No one cares what you think about the president. Especially if you don’t like him! Look at that map again, please, and soak in the reality. You are outnumbered and surrounded by us. If you have to purge your bile somewhere, find some friends who agree with you and go to town denouncing the president and evil Republicans in your living room. But if you’re out to get a cup of coffee or to get your hair done, it’s best to stick to cheerful small talk about the weather or the recent harvest or piano recitals. Stop taking your anger out on everyone around you. It’s weird.

Det samme sinne finnes i Europa hos en smakselite som mener de har rett til å irettesette andre. Det er en ny utvikling i demokratiet og det tegner ikke godt.

Mye tyder på at Trump vil vinne kampen om amerikanernes hearts and minus. I Europa ser det mørkere ut.

Megan Fox beskriver en reaksjon som er utbredt i Europa: Folk trekker seg tilbake. De orker ikke all fiendtligheten og velger heller kattebilder på Facebook fremfor å tone flagg. Det får venstreorienterte til å tro at de er flere enn de er.

I stopped posting political things on my Facebook page, including links to my own articles, which for years I had done with no issues. I belong to one of those secret Facebook groups where we discuss issues like adults without having to put up with the unhinged comments by friends who have TDS. It began as a courtesy to our Never Trump friends so as not to upset them, and it continues now because we realize life is more pleasant without their unbalanced and raving interjections. Imagine! We cared enough about them to take our Trump support out of their view for their sanity, but we don’t rate the same consideration. My personal page is now filled with photos of my kids and my dog and that’s it. No one needs the kind of harassment the TDS folks are dishing out, and the only way to avoid it is to become completely silent about politics. Contrary to popular belief, we have no interest in fighting with people all the time. We miss the days when we could disagree and still like one another.

Unfortunately, this forced silence is just breeding more contempt between countrymen and ensuring the Trump haters are going to be taken by surprise again when he is reelected by people who won’t talk about it but heartily support him. Get ready for more therapy, folks. You’re going to need it. #TrumpIsYourPresident
