How many of the laws of history can Donald Trump repeal? I don’t claim to know. And history doesn’t really have “laws” that can be enforced, just precedents and patterns formed by the accumulation of those precedents. One such pattern, which has held in every election that involved an incumbent president since the emergence of the political polling industry, is this: If the president’s approval rating is “above water,” meaning more approvers than disapprovers, he wins a second term. If the president has a negative approval rating, he loses. This has been true in 10 out of 10 instances in the era of modern polling, dating back to the 1950s, the era that includes the last 16 presidential elections — including the 10 that involved an incumbent president.

If more disapprover than approvers, he was defeated. … [Read more...] about Can Trump break this six-decade U.S. election pattern?

"I think China would probably say: 'Let's wait. Let's wait. Maybe Trump will lose and we can deal with another dope, or another stiff.'" … [Read more...] about China Could Wait Until U.S. Election for Trade Deal
Melissa Nann Burke The Detroit News Published 6:00 AM EDT Apr 4, 2019 Washington — A new bipartisan bill in Congress aims to close loopholes that allow foreign actors and governments to purchase digital, television or radio ads to influence U.S. elections. The bill, introduced Wednesday by Reps. Elissa Slotkin, D-Holly, and Elise Stefanik, R-New York, comes days after special counsel Robert Mueller's probe said Russia clearly interfered in the 2016 presidential election. The legislation responds to concerns specifically about Russian influence in social media ads, some containing anti-Muslim messages, that were intended to sow discord and disproportionately targeted Michigan in 2016, among other states. Slotkin said that "in an ideal world," lawmakers would have taken immediate steps to close the loopholes after U.S. intelligence agencies declared a year and a half ago that Russian attempted to … [Read more...] about Slotkin bill blocks foreign entities from buying ads in U.S. elections
Stocks marched higher on Wall Street Monday after President Donald Trump agreed to hold off on raising tariffs on Chinese goods, which would have escalated a damaging trade war between the world's two largest economies. Investors had been growing increasingly optimistic over the last two weeks that the U.S. and China were moving closer to a resolution of their dispute. The fight is over U.S. complaints that Beijing steals technology or pressures companies to hand it over.Although Wall Street ended the day off its earlier highs, the Dow Jones industrials average rose 60 points, or 0.2 percent, to close at 26,092.

It’s going to be a long two years. But hopefully, at the end of it, Democrats will have shown enough Americans just why they cannot — and should never again — be in charge. As the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border worsens and the agencies charged with defending it against illegal immigrants are not being paid, thanks to Democratic refusal to work with POTUS Trump on a solution to reopen shuttered government agencies, the party of … [Read more...] about CHEATING Dems push new law to REPEAL voter ID laws nationwide, allowing illegals to dominate the future of U.S. elections
