Surprise! President Trump Polling Better than Bill Clinton at This Stage of Presidency; Impact

June 7th, 2017 Comments off

TrumpSurpisesPollstersAgainPostedDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsAfter months of blistering media attacks, innuendo, protests, and allegations that have turned up no evidence, President Donald J. Trump, has neither resigned nor faced impeachment.  In fact, while polling is fairly low, it is higher – per the Real Clear Politics average – than President Bill Clinton had at this point in his first year of office.

The media’s approval rating is lower still, as is the Congress.

Special elections that many sources breathlessly predicted would yield a Democratic upset, have all so far been won by the GOP.  Another special election race looms later this month in Georgia, which is reportedly close in the polling.

Markets Roar

Perhaps the strongest indicator of President Trump’s job approval are the markets.  They’ve soared since his election.

National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) President and CEO, Juanita Duggan stated after the election – as they celebrated his win, which is widely welcomed among independent businesses – “What a difference a day makes.”

We haven’t seen numbers like this in a long time,” Duggan said.

Small business is ready for a breakout, and that can only mean very good things for the U.S. economy. Business owners are feeling better about taking risks and making investments,” as Duggan and NFIB are pushing for tax reform, which along with regulatory relief are among the market drivers.

October 22nd, 2012 Comments off

According to realclearpolitics, based on voting patterns since 1972 and polls by an extensive list of news and survey organizations going back to 2009, of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the U.S. presidency, 201 votes are likely for Obama/Biden, while 206 votes are likely in the Romney/Ryan camp. 131 votes are in toss-up states. The site also includes detailed information about current and historical Senate and House contests, as well as commentary by various political writers, the seats that will probably change hands, and ratings on Obama’s stewardship of the country. For more information, do click here. Meanwhile, in a Gallup Poll of 2,700 probable voters from a series of telephone surveys conducted Oct. 7 through Oct. 20, 2012, Gov. Romney is ahead of Pres. Obama 52% to 45%. As MHProNews has learned, undecided respondents were asked which way they were leaning, and those responses were incorporated in the results. Gov Romney began widening the gap the second week of Oct.

Republican’s Plan for Fannie and Freddie

August 13th, 2012 Comments off

HousingWire reports while Rep. Paul Ryan, (R-WI), Gov. Mitt Romney’s running mate for the White House has proposed privatizing “the business of government-owned housing giants, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, so they no longer expose taxpayers to trillions of dollars’ worth of risk,” and an end to the $188 billion in bail-outs, major lender and realtor organizations propose private capital in a first loss position but not without some form of government guarantee. Tom Cronin of the Collingwood Group said private capital would be slow to return to the marketplace until risk retention, qualified mortgage and new servicing standards are in place. He does not see that happening anytime soon. MHProNews has learned while Romney has not said what he may have in store for Fannie and Freddie if he wins the presidency, on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” he did say his platform will have its own budget plan he and Mr. Ryan will follow.
