New Poll: 4 In 10 Support Impeaching Trump

Mod: I guess we could start calling it Trexit. I mean, why wouldn't you? 

Poll: 4 in 10 support impeaching Trump (The Hill link): Forty percent of registered voters support impeaching President Trump, according to a poll released Thursday by Public Policy Polling (PPP). Nearly half of voters, 48 percent, are opposed to impeaching Trump, and 12 percent remain unsure, according to the poll.

Pollsters also found that a majority of voters, 52 percent, would prefer former President Obama in his old role rather than Trump; 43 percent prefer Trump, and 5 percent are uncertain.

“Usually a newly elected president is at the peak of their popularity and enjoying their honeymoon after taking office,” PPP President Dean Debnam said in a statement. “But Donald Trump’s making history once again with a sizable share of voters already wanting to impeach him, and a majority of voters wishing they could have Barack Obama back.”

PPP polling found that 49 percent of voters disapprove of Trump’s performance since his inauguration on Jan. 20 and 47 percent approve.

Overall impressions of Trump remain negative, according to the poll, with 52 percent viewing him unfavorably and 45 percent viewing him favorably.

Mod: I am sure there are some who are ideologically opposed to Donald Trump. But from conversations I've had with people over the last couple of weeks it looks like a large portion of that 40% supporting impeachment just find Trump to be really scary. Plus some of the people he has surrounded himself with are just not quite on the level. Or even sane. The following being a good example of that.

Kellyanne Conway made up a fake terrorist attack to justify Trump’s “Muslim ban” (Vox link): In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews that aired on Thursday night, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway managed to get two huge things wrong in a short, 19-second answer. First, she said that the Obama administration banned Iraqi refugees from entering in the United States for six months in 2011 — which is flatly untrue.

Second, and more significantly, she made up a terrorist attack committed by Iraqi refugees that never happened — the “Bowling Green Massacre.”


Joe Sonka is, to be clear, 100 percent correct about this. There has never been a terrorist attack in Bowling Green, Kentucky committed by Iraqi refugees.

Conway claims that “most people don't know that because it didn't get covered.” Most people don’t know about it because it didn’t happen.

Mod: Outside of this blog's famous "Trump Guy," I am not sure people are all that impressed by wholesale lying like that. You have to wonder why people like Kellyanne Conway believe they can just make up imaginary terrorist attacks out of thin air, and then use those fantasies to justify controversial policy positions that involve the lives of millions of people. It just doesn't make a lot of sense. Kind of nuts, actually.

Short and sweet. Here is how one commenter described it:

"The Planning Commission continues its excellent work in bring the codes into line with the General Plan. Thanks, Commissioners! Director of Planning announced that the Mira Monte Mess was to come before them again in Feb., but that rascal Kefalas has asked for another postponement, until March."

  1. "It just doesn't make a lot of sense. Kind of nuts, actually." But that's exactly what politicians at her level do" That's how they get that far up the silly chain, ego's and all. By the time they are that high, they believe everything they think and say is right because that's what lead them to where they are. Not normal, but it's their reality. But the universe doesn't care.

  2. Kefalas is all lawyered up now. Same law firm as the one CETT hired for their One Carter McMannies. This will now drag on for months, even years. Maybe even beyond the two year ban on doing anything with that house that would have been imposed if he had just accepted his punishment and shut up about it. Obviously he now believes he is entitled to a chunk of our tax money.

    1. What about Salesian? Did that whole fiasco just go away? When I drive by that place they have three mailboxes out front. Did he ever have to get a business license for the rentals at least? Apparently you just do what you want in Sierra Madre now and hope you don't get caught. When you do get caught, just plead ignorance and postpone until everyone forgets or gives up.

    1. Good grief! We've given him "a chance" and now we have the alt-right Bannon running the country, Trump pissing off our friends - who annoys Australia? The doomsday clock has moved up 30 seconds. He can only harm us even more! Look at his spokesperson Kellyann Conway who was called out on her "massacre in Bowling Green by two Iraqis that Obama's administration let in." When questioned by the press that this was an absolute lie (again), she said it was an "error." Give Trump a chance???? What is his vision? Starting WW3 is his vision!

  12. The Sierra Madre Planning Department gives dates uncertain or within a time period, for individuals coming before them, when a plan or condition requires reworking.
    Not sure why Mr. Kefalas hired that Attorney. Could be he doesn't want to take a chance on another tongue lashing.
    If the spec's are up to code, the rebuild will continue.

  15. WASHINGTON ― One of the Donald Trump administration’s first orders of business on the economy will scuttle a rule protecting retirees from being scammed out of $17 billion a year by their own financial advisers.

    The Obama administration approved the regulation last year. The rule established a “fiduciary duty” for money managers, requiring them to operate retirement accounts in the best interests of their clients. The Trump team’s repeal will allow financial professionals to steer retirees into expensive or poor-performing products that carry economic benefits and perks for the advisers and their firms, without disclosing such conflicts of interest.
