He's touting the right-leaning Quinnipiac Poll this morning.

He's right in that the poll reports 66% of Americans feel the economy is excellent or good.

But it's obvious he didn't actually read the report.

https://poll.qu.edu/national/release-de ... aseID=2511

Because the poll ALSO says the overwhelming majority of Americans attribute that economy to BARACK OBAMA. Not Trump.

AND the percentage of Americans giving Obama credit for the state of the economy has INCREASED since November.

The poll literally says that. Great economy, because of Obama.

The poll ALSO says the majority of Americans rate the Trump presidency as a D or an F. With a 59% disapproval rate.

69% of Americans think Trump is not sane
57% say he's not fit to serve as president
63% say that he is not honest
59% say that he does not have good leadership skills
59% say that he does not care about average Americans
65% believe he does not share their values

Words used by a majority of poll respondents to describe Trump's first year in office include "disaster," "chaotic," "horrible," "terrible," and "embarrassing."

The Quinnipiac assistant director said, and I quote, "No one’s been this low at this point"

So in your mind there is no improvement unless there are ZERO layoffs? Even if there is a net increase in employment? Businesses change. Positions come and go, in good economies as well as bad.

In their minds, nothing is any good unless it can be tied to some democrat or liberal.

Net increases in employment were ongoing for the last six or seven years before Trump took office, and we didn't need the tax cut to continue that trend. But what this does show is that, other than a couple of publicity stunt bonuses by companies with major reason to suck up to Trump at the time, the "benefits" of this tax cut aren't going to be going to everyday workers in any meaningful way. Job losses, however, are going to hit everyday workers in a meaningful way.

Because in most cases nothing tied to a republican or conservative is any good for average people.

Employment grew at a lower rate last year than in any of the previous seven.

For the same reason there are so many poor Republicans in Republican-controlled areas. In fact, the red states are the poorest.

I couldn't help noticing, Billy Bob, that you appear to be a victim of harassment. It's a little outside my professional expertise, but if you'd like me to set you up with someone from the Michigan Bar Association, I'd be happy to help. --Bob
