Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

This whole thing gets weirder!

Quote:
U.S. Representative Devin Nunes, chairman of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, visited the White House the night before announcing on Wednesday that he had information that indicated some Trump associates may have been subjected to some level of intelligence activity before Trump took office on Jan. 20.

Nunes spokesman Jack Langer said in a statement that Nunes "met with his source at the White House grounds in order to have proximity to a secure location where he could view the information provided by the source."
Source

Quote:
A congressional source said congressional investigators have questioned agencies directly to try to find out what intelligence reports and intercepts Nunes is referring to, but that as of Monday the agencies were still saying they did not know what Nunes was talking about.
So the chairman of the Congressional Intelligence Committee met somebody with access to the White House to view what was claimed to be classified information which he later repeated to Trump and the Press.

On this basis the information has zero credibility.
I thought like many others Nunes came across the information that was provided by intelligence agencies as part of his Chairman role
It seems he may have been a victim of a Trump team scam?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

President Donald Trump’s approval rating slipped to a new low Monday (today) in the Gallup daily tracking poll, the first measure of Trump’s job performance following his administration’s failure to move a new health care law through Congress.

Only 36 percent of Americans approve of the way Trump is handling his job as president in interviews conducted last Friday through Sunday.

Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport noted that Trump has now scored lower than both Barack Obama, who never ticked below 38 percent, and Bill Clinton, whose lowest approval rating was 37 percent.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
The congressional Standing Committee of Correspondents on Monday delayed a decision on whether to grant permanent credentials to Breitbart News, saying members were not satisfied with the information provided thus far regarding the right-wing website’s connections to the White House and the Republican mega-donor family the Mercers.

Breitbart News, the site once run by President Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, began the process to secure permanent and official Capitol Hill credentials in November.

“We can’t even get an exact date Bannon resigned, even so, some officers and top editors at Breitbart may or may not have continued relations directly with Bannon and another organizations, even being paid,” said the standing committee chairman, Billy House. “Even if Bannon is no longer involved in GAI, top editors are involved in this other group, an advocacy group.”

A Russian bank under Western economic sanctions over Russia's incursion into Ukraine disclosed on Monday that its executives had met Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and a top White House adviser, during the 2016 election campaign.

A U.S. Senate committee investigating suspected Russian interference in the election wants to interview Trump associates, including Kushner, 36, who is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and has agreed to testify.

Strange but not only is this populist President one of the most unpopular Presidents ever according to Polls but also his policies are unpopular according to March 24, 2017 - Quinnipiac University National Poll
  • American voters oppose 55 - 43 percent Trump's revised executive order that temporarily bans people from certain countries from entering the U.S.
  • Voters also oppose 61 - 35 percent Trump's ban on all refugees entering the U.S.
  • Voters support 58 - 40 percent court decisions blocking the immigration ban
  • Voters disapprove 59 - 27 percent of the way Trump is handling U.S. policy toward Russia.
  • A total of 63 percent of American voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" about Trump's relationship with Russia.
  • A total of 65 percent of voters say alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election is a "very important" or "somewhat important" issue.
  • Starting to fund a wall along the Mexican border is a "bad idea," voters say 64 - 35 percent.

xD you still have faith in polls that include the trump xD Oh come on, surely there is a better way to have an idea, rather than "polls".

For example, look at the poll for this thread, it does not represent how popular Trump is, it just shows how popular he is within the confines of English Forum.

But there was also a mistake with this poll... you must always try to have a control group... a "undecided" or "i dont care" for it to be more accurate.

Just remember that polls showed that the trump had a 1% chance of winning.... that means Clinton had atleast 80 times bigger chance according to a huge plethora of polls....

Yet i say that you need to take these things with a grain of salt, and i earn the reputation of nutty right winger -_-

"polls showed that the trump had a 1% chance of winning" you should not continue living in the past?

Anyway it was 28.6% not 1% Source

It's not relevant. You don't need an undecided category if it's not a research based poll. Undecided or people who don't care won't click on the thread in the first place, will they..?

XD wow you should right a thesis about that discovery.
Put it on paper maybe you will get a noble price, but do try to tone down the sarcasm..... OH WAIT YOU ARE NOT BEING SERIOUS!!!

Of course a control group is incredibly important.... because if they are not sure they will just go straight for the easiest answer.... and dont forget that in order to view the results you have to vote... now in the topic of neuro science we have discovered that realizing "lack of knowledge" prrovokes a lot of brain activity.

Where did I say it "wasn't important"?

I said it wasn't relevant in this case because it is a forum which people dip in and out of. The tendency is that people only click on a thread if they are interested. Why do you think that someone who has no interest will click on this thread and then choose an option on the poll to then register that disinterest?

But yes, pilatus1 has a point. There's an ignore function and I think it's time to engage it.

You need to learn what a control group actually is. Nothing to do with having an "undecided" box btw.

Uh. It's a poll, not an experiment. In an experiment, you need a control group if you are exposing your "treatment" group to something you wish to study, and wish to observe changes that can be attributed to the treatment.

I'm not sure how that relates to what you've written above.
