Trump backs down on guns

Trump is showing no presidential leadership on this issue.  His word is worthless because he changes his mind frequently.

I will give Trump credit for standing up to the NRA for one day.  That’s one more day than Ryan and McConnell ever will.  Sad!

Quinnipiac poll results (1/10/18)

Trump tweeted that 66% of the public think the economy is good or excellent in a new Quinnipiac poll which is the highest mark ever.  That’s true but there’s lots of bad news in the poll which he ignored.  While the economy mark is high, 49% give credit to Obama while 40% give credit to Trump.

The complete poll is here. The results are mostly bad for Trump.  The summary includes:

 “President Trump’s grades on most character traits are down significantly since his first post-inaugural poll January 26, 2017, as voters say:

  • 63 – 34 percent that he is not honest;
  • 59 – 39 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
  • 59 – 38 percent, that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 59 – 39 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 65 – 32 percent that he does not share their values.”
