Only 5% of Americans in Survey Say Things Are Going Very Well

Mod: I'm not sure there has been as much winning as Donald had originally promised.

Only 5% of Americans in Survey Say Things Are Going Very Well (MSN link):  Americans are downbeat as coronavirus cases spike in many states and the economy is mired in recession, a new CBS poll shows. Only 5% said things in America are going “very well,” against 40% who said they’re going “very badly,” according to the survey, taken June 23-26. Another 19% said things were “somewhat well” and 36% said “somewhat badly.”

Most Americans said that, as they look back a few months, the Trump administration wasn’t ready to deal with the coronavirus outbreak when it started in early 2020, according to a CBS News poll. Some 72% judged the administration “unprepared” against 28% who said it was “prepared.”

The poll results were released on a day when U.S. virus cases have exceeded 2.5 million, and deaths are over 125,000, in both cases the world’s highest. The U.S. has set records this week for daily cases, a contrast to European countries that have almost stamped out Covid-19 for now. Administration officials tie rising cases to increased testing. Health experts disagree.

Almost half, 49%, said the virus outbreak would get worse over the summer. The remainder was split between those who think it will get better and those who expect it to stay about the same. The CBS poll said assessments of how President Donald Trump has handled the virus outbreak continue to slip, to 41% now from 47% in mid-April and 53% in late March.

It also showed that wearing a face mask in public, recommended by most public health officials as a way to slow the spread of Covid-19, has become partisan, with Republicans less inclined to don a mask. The people surveyed said they trusted their gut on the mask issue more than anything: Of those who use masks, 86% said they were guided by “their own assessments.” Of those, 78% also said they took the word of medical and health professionals and 24% said they followed Trump’s guidance.

Trump knew about Russian bounties on US military much earlier than he’s letting on: Ex-RNC head (Raw Story link): Appearing on MSNBC on Monday morning, former Republican National Committee head Michael Steele claimed he had no doubt that Donald Trump was aware that Russia was paying out bounties for the killings of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

Speaking with “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the former RNC head was asked if Donald Trump thinks Americans are “stupid” for telling them he was out of the loop on the intelligence reports. “I will take up that challenge and say they did brief him,” Steele replied. “I do not believe that something as important and severe as this was left untold to the President of the United States.”

    1. Surely poster has the wrong group of treasonous people poster 8:42AM, the Republican controlled Senate is to blame and that creeping crud (djt). All the Republican controlled Senate had to do was impeach the treasonous (djt) and all this C-19 would have been avoided in 2019.

    2. You need to close that hole of yours. Time is running out while everyone is playing politics on C19. The House needs to act and pass the bill and force the Senate to vote...

  2. How much of the US currency destined for bounties on the lives of American military personnel that was captured with Taliban fighters was cleaned by the Trump Org for the Russian oligarchs? Just wondering.

  5. Obvious that not many on this site are well versed in current news but opt to remain in a position of controlled brainwash.
    The polls beg to differ from what is posted here on the gotcha page of the Tattler post.
    FYI the facial coverings are not good enough for keeping the Coronavirus from happening, the facts on face masks are for you to keep spreading any sprays of possible bacteria onto others if you have been infected and are a carrier; not the other way around.

      President Donald Trump engaged in an unprecedented – and previously unknown – “flurry of communication” with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a three-week period earlier this year, according to a sister-network of Voice of America.

      “On March 30, Russian leader Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump spoke by telephone, the first of five calls between the two over a period of three weeks, a flurry of communication unprecedented during Trump’s 3 1/2 years in office,”

      Only one of those five calls, according to research from NCRM, was shared with the press. None were posted to the White House website, a serious deviation from prior practice.

      “For many Russia watchers, the flurry of behind-the-scenes phone calls and other communications is a clear indication that something’s going on,” RFERL’s Mike Eckel adds. He notes, “the two countries’ diplomats have spoken at least three times over that same period, which also coincided with an unusual shipment of Russian coronavirus-related humanitarian aid to the United States.”

    2. Trump's Russia Bounty Story Falls Apart As Military Tried To Protect Troops

      As more outlets have confirmed the initial report that the Russians placed a bounty on the heads of US troops in Afghanistan, Trump’s claims of fake news are collapsing. The White House tried to claim that Trump wasn’t briefed, but the Office of the Director of National Intelligence won’t say whether or not Trump was given a written briefing that he ignored.

      If the Russian bounty on US troops was “fake news” as the President claimed on Twitter, why did the military take steps to try to protect US forces in Afghanistan?

      Trump has lied over 20,000 times, and the lies are collapsing under the weight of reality. Except, of course, for the 37% of Trump true believers.

      The Pentagon Was “Pounding Down the Door” to Get Trump To Respond to Russian Bounties on U.S. Soldiers

      Pentagon officials tried desperately to get President Donald Trump to do something about Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers. That’s according to The Washington Post‘s David Ignatius.

      Ignatius spoke to MSNBC’s Morning Joe program on Monday. He said the Pentagon had tried to get the President to act but he had failed to do so,

      “Based on my reporting trying to confirm The New York Times’ excellent story it’s clear in late March you had senior U.S commanders, senior civilian intelligence officials, in effect pounding on the door of the White House saying we need to do something about this,” Ignatius said.

      “We need to come to a conclusion about what damage the Russian program is doing, we need to reassess our programs in Afghanistan and they couldn’t get an answer.”

      “To this day there’s not an answer, there’s not a real response” he said.

      “Was this because the President was briefed and did nothing or because he wasn’t briefed because people were afraid to give him bad news and kept it to themselves? I don’t know.”

      “But it almost doesn’t matter in terms of the breakdown in terms of the way the government is supposed to work.”

      “In some ways, it’s almost worse the department didn’t tell him, ‘Mr. President while you’re encouraging Russia to rejoin the G8, we should mention Russia is putting bounties on the heads of American soldiers.’ If they didn’t tell him that, it’s a stunner.”

    4. Trump Denies Russia Bounty Claim as Bipartisan Outrage Grows on Capitol Hill

      Reports that Moscow paid the Taliban to kill Americans in Afghanistan have prompted growing concern that the commander in chief did not do enough to protect U.S. forces.

      The Washington Post reported Sunday night that militants linked to the Taliban killed dozens of U.S. forces in 2018 and 2019 as a part of the Russian scheme.
