Support For Donald Trump's Impeachment Is Now Higher Than His Approval Rating

Mod: Pretty phenomenal polling information for Le Grande Orange. Not since the very darkest days of the Watergate Scandal have we seen numbers like these. And who really knows where this will all go? The damn fool is just getting started.

Support For Donald Trump's Impeachment Is Now Higher Than His Approval Rating (Newsweek link): Virtually every single poll tracking President Donald Trump's approval rating showed the figure plummeting Monday morning, well below the margin of error compared to the rising level of support for impeachment. The results follow Trump's controversial decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord; the ongoing investigation into his campaign’s possible ties to the Kremlin is also a factor.

The president's approval rating dipped from nearly 42 percent to just 36 percent over the weekend, according to a Gallup daily tracking poll published Monday. Trump's declining popularity is inching closer toward his all-time low of 35 percent as president in March, when Gallup had the president’s approval at just 35 percent. What's more, nearly 43 percent of American voters support the idea of beginning the official impeachment process for Trump, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll published Wednesday.

There are slight discrepancies between several leading polls as to where the president’s approval officially stands, though each tracking poll published Monday and over the weekend seemed to show a decline in popularity following Trump's decision on the Paris Agreement. Even right-leaning poll sites like Rasmussen Reports are indicating dips in support for the president's job performance, reporting that as of Monday, 54 percent of the nation disapproves of Trump’s tenure as commander in chief.

Bombshell intel leak reveals Russia cyber attack targeted voting software and election officials (Raw Story link): According to a report at The Intercept, an internal document at the NSA shows that Russian military intelligence “executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November’s presidential election.”

The Intercept notes the document is dated May 5, 2017, and states, “Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate actors … executed cyber espionage operations against a named U.S. company in August 2016, evidently to obtain information on elections-related software and hardware solutions. … The actors likely used data obtained from that operation to … launch a voter registration-themed spear-phishing campaign targeting U.S. local government organizations.”

According to The Intercept,  the Russian hackers “focused on parts of the system directly connected to the voter registration process, including a private sector manufacturer of devices that maintain and verify the voter rolls. Some of the company’s devices are advertised as having wireless internet and Bluetooth connectivity, which could have provided an ideal staging point for further malicious actions.”

The NSA notes that the attacks could have had an impact on voting tallies.

Melania Trump Affair Rumor: Novelist Accuses First Lady Of Cheating For ‘Many Years’ (Inquistr.com link): A rumor that Melania Trump is in an affair erupted on Twitter when a novelist claimed that the first lady is cheating on her husband with someone who works in Trump Tower. The strong allegation surfaced on June 1, after a woman by the name of Monica Byrne wrote a series of tweets about information she received from a source she views as reliable.

Perez Hilton picked up the story on Friday about the alleged Melania Trump affair, publishing the string of tweets written by Byrne — who’s profile on Twitter reads that she’s a “novelist, playwright, artist, activist, traveler, futurist, feminist, TED speaker.”

According to the report, Byrne shared information she received from a source she refuses to name so that she can “accelerate [Trump’s] rate of self-destruction.” She repeated a rumor that former White House staffer, Claude Taylor, tweeted a few weeks ago about getting information from well-known sources that Donald and Melania Trump signed divorce papers, but never filed because of the surprise win in the election. The White House has denounced all negative reports written about them, with a spokesperson insisting that the reports are false about Melania being “miserable” in her marriage.

Byrne’s tweets were posted on Thursday in which she claims Melania Trump has been having an affair with the head of security at Tiffany’s in the Trump Tower lobby for “many years.” The novelist began her introductions into the affair rumor by telling followers she was ready to “leak the gossip” that is probably more of a “tip.” She continued that she can’t reveal her source and that the Trumps will likely deny the rumors, citing it as “fake news.”

  1. Fake election. It's been known since Bush/Gore that many types of voting machines are easily hacked, including some made by a right wing company that somehow can't get voting machines right but makes some very secure ATMs.

    7. To limit fanfare and minimize the spectacle, I think Trump's resignation will come out of the blue. Heck, he might not even be the one to deliver the message. It might just be stated in a daily presser or a tweet. He's incredibly impulsive.

      He'll sign resignation papers in private with Pence, receive a blanket pardon From Pence before anyone has a chance to object, and then the nation will be notified in as brief a manner as possible. It will be nothing like Nixon's resignation.

  2. Maybe that is why Trump has his mitts on Ivanka all the time. He knows she isn't his daughter.

  3. Definitively states Russian General Staff Main Military Intelligence Directorate actors responsible, shooting down those who have been denying and downplaying the Russian involvement.

    Whole situation is very damning knowing how WH has been determined to rescind sanctions and give Russians back their diplomatic headquarters in spite of NSA having proof of Russian's attempts to interfere.

    The whistleblower must have been frustrated and concerned that with all the Repub right wing spin and denials, nothing would be done and Russians would be able to succeed in future elections, but instead they are focusing on leakers. Ironic that she would be the first leaker facing punishment but fact she got caught could bring more attention to the NSA info that she leaked.

  4. Just curious, please tell me what impeachable act President Trump committed?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Seriously? You're just curious? Haven't heard the news?

      Impeachable offenses so far include:

      violating his Oath of Office by not faithfully executing the laws of the United States, specifically by accusing former President Obama, without proof, of wiretapping him.

      routinely violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution by accepting money from foreign governments, particularly by steering diplomatic delegations to Trump properties.

      twice attempting to ban people from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., violating their First Amendment right to practice whatever religion they choose.
      Trump labeling the press an "enemy of the people.

      Mounting evidence that he or his campaign might have committed treason by colluding with Russia to win the 2016 election.

  5. Now that he has been sitting in the White house for more than three days Donald Trump is starting to stink real bad and it's time to remove him for the sake of the Nation and our security. All the warning signs were posted about him in the first place but the RNC hated Obama so bad they would have lynched him in public if they thought they could get away with it, now they are forced to throw a bald, loud mouthed bum out of the White House and lose face or have their elected positions taken away from them. "SNAFU"

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yep. I never did think that he really won, you know. Just my opinion. My opinion wasn't sour grapes. It was based on having been alive long enough to witness a number of Presidential elections, and as a political junkie who was reading everything, there were almost no indications he would, from reliable sources. It was possible. But not likely. I also knew it wouldn't take that much to rig it. Just a little hacking in key counties in certain states.

    I also got a feeling from something Trump said on the campaign stage in Pennsylvania. I remember thinking at the time, "That sounds as if Pennsylvania is fixed, because there is no data at all to indicate he'll win PA." He ended his speech by saying that if he didn't win Pennsylvania, then "THE ELECTION IS RIGGED!" Remember when he started saying that shortly before the election? I thought at the time that he was saying that so that the Democrats would be viewed suspiciously if they said it, if the election were in fact rigged for Trump. (That's also a known Russian trick...to rig an election, but claim throughout that the OTHER side is going to rig the election.)

    But we in the country weren't allowed to have the conversation and discuss it. That was all shut down. It's possible he legitimately won. But I didn't think likely. This also explains his obsession over trying to prove "the people" overwhelmingly voted for him, which they didn't.

  7. As Trump's Russia scandal continues to swirl, Vice President Mike Pence appears to be looking out for one politician and one politician only: Mike Pence.

    Since Inauguration Day, the VP has kept plenty busy at home and abroad, often attempting to distance himself from his embattled leader. On February 18, Pence spoke with NATO members in Munich while Trump spent another weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

  8. Mike Pence's views on the issues important to liberals are a nightmare. Keeping tRump in office while he weakens the GOP for the 2018 midterms is a strategy worth considering. With all the messiness of #45's discord in the office and worldwide, nothing GOP gets done. Think about it. And in the meanwhile the Left Coast--Washinton, Oregon, California and Mexico and Canada--forge ahead with green economies to lead the world.

  11. Saving Private RyanJune 6, 2017 at 8:18 AM

    This morning, the sixth of June, 1944, thousands of young American soldiers lost their lives on the beaches of France in an effort to defend the Constitution of the United States. I would like to point this out to all of the Republicans in this country that it is the right of every American to support impeachment of a servant of the people who we deem unworthy of holding office. The coming months will show whether our democracy is as strong as it was in 1944.
