Trump-bashing by political enemies aside, the country is ‘well-pleased’ with his impact on the economy, says AMAC

Trump impeachment projection

WASHINGTON, DC, Jan 17 — For the most part the American people expect a happy new year, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey.  The poll found that 72% of 1,000 respondents feel good about 2020 compared to just 54% a year ago.

Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], says that one of the interesting aspects of the survey is that “more than half of those who have a positive view of the coming year believe the new year will be exceptional.  In a breakdown of its poll, Rasmussen found that 22% of those who participated said they expect an ‘excellent year’ and another 20% ‘predict it will be one of the best years ever’.”

Weber notes that the stock markets made an “impressive” start in the new year, continuing to post record gains.  “Unemployment is at an historically low point and the job market and consumer spending is strong.  In general there is widespread optimism that America’s economic growth will continue in the first year of the new decade.”

Meanwhile, another study by Rasmussen pollsters shows that the economy is strong.  As the study put it:  “The economy continues to wow this month with the Rasmussen Reports Economic Index hitting 147.8  in January, up 3.5 points from last month and smashing through the five-year high.”

Weber points out that the index President Obama’s was at a high of 121.5 at the beginning of 2015 and in the last month of his tenure it stood at 108.1.

“Despite the political Trump-bashing that the president has been taking leading up to the next Presidential Election in November, American citizens — in general — seem well-pleased with the impact Mr. Trump has had on their financial well-being,” Weber added.

So tired of hearing our President bashed. They have never shown him respect. I wish they would “impeach” Nancy Pelosi!

And why not be pleased?
A booming economy coupled with historical low unemployment?
It’s the left’s worst nightmare.
Yes, I admit I voted for Hillary in 2016, but every Senior is allowed one hallucinatory moment.
My penance is owning up to what I did in 2016.
I know that Amac members are forgiving.
If Mr. Trump can cut a deal with the Chinese (he is a deal maker after all), things can only get better.

The economy, engaging with friendly and adversary countries (bringing about change), strong on his convictions, addressing the illegal immigration issues in the face of opposition (for votes, how sickening are the dems?), and all other engaged Presidential work – three cheers for President Trump.

Morbious

The help wanted signs dont lie and they’re everywhere. But, bernie would say, ‘those are entry level jobs’. Maybe, but when i talk to contractors i hear the same tune: they cant find help at twice minimum wage. A marble and granite contractor told me hes hiring 45 yr olds away from other fields. Once, winston churchill stood astride history and made all the difference in the world. Later, ronnie did what the swamp said couldnt be done and shouldnt be done if it could be done because reducing the soviet union would be destabilizing. Detante was shown to be the sham it always was. Now we have trump the great lifting up this country after eight yrs of humiliation. As the musicians sang it ‘God works in mysterious ways’. Keep praying.

The difference between now and last June in my 401K would be enough to buy a new car with! Thank you Mr. President!

But what cracks me up is all the dems running for president claim that the economy is terrible and that raising taxes and implementing socialism will “fix” it! LOL! Especially Bloomberg. He should know better, being a businessman himself. I’m surprised he even has two nickles to rub together, with economic savvy like that.

President Trump will likely be in the history books as our all time best President despite constant resistance from All Democrats and some so called Republicans.
Imagine if the Democrats were not constantly aggressively dividing our country in an effort to retain and appease their party under such impressive results from our President.
Pelosi should be impeached for this coup attempt and dividing our country causing unwarranted panic and causing an environment where uninformed society is violating laws thinking that Pelosi is speaking the truth.

Patriot Will

Before President Trump was elected, Obama assured us that the days of significant economic growth were behind us. After President Trump was elected, Obama assured us that his policies were actually growing our economy. Amazing, how Obama and the likes of Schumer and Pelosi keep on telling us bold, shameless lies — so sad that so many partisan Americans still believe in the Wizard of Oz, Obama. Thank you President Trump for being the real deal!

Susan

Continuing in praying, standing and supporting President Trump. Never in all of my life has any president of either side or in between, motivated the people, improved and repaired so many things and expressed the love of this country more than President Donald Trump! Do I need to include no president has ever had the tenacity and fortitude to continue pressing on regardless of what fires at him!
❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸

I am sure that the majority of Democrat/socialists are wondering just how in the world they can convert America to socialism when things are going so well. I guess just more lies and hatred as well as convincing the weak minded that everything that is seen, just isn’t so. Hey, it’s worked in the past!

Why is it “President Obama” and “Mr. Trump”? It should read President Trump, and former-president 0bama.

Joann M Longton

I am happy the stock market is doing well. I LOVE this President, however there is a LARGE majority of Americans who do not have extra money to invest in the stock market so are being left out of the so-called Boom. I am a nurse (LPN) and make a decent (but not huge ) income–but because I am single I have to pay through the nose in taxes and only have 1 income to cover all my bills. So I do not ever even have money to put into a retirement fund–and I am only 4 years from retirement. The President needs to cut the taxes on those of us who are in a single income household to 15%. Mitt Romney pays only 15% in taxes–why should the rest of us who struggle to make ends meet have to pay more than he does????I have no debt (except my… Read more »

Trump and Pence Team 2020
Awesome, Leadership.

Our legally elected PRESIDENT has more to make this country better in his short term than barry,hitlery and cult would do in fifty years.So why don’t you dense oc RATS give it up and move to southern kalifornia,you would fit right in !!!!

I’ve never seen a situation where any entity (country, company, family) wants to bash someone that has provided a major upgrade. But, alas, it seems, to many, that is who we are. Our president is a super-star. The “swamp” , apparently, cannot stand the fact that someone (Trump) shows us all that in less than 3 years we can solve our major problems very quickly. The key , to me , is that the swamp needs to understand that the real talent of the US is in the private sector ( where Trump came from) and not from “swamp” creatures who really have not solved any of our problems and consists of people of limited ability. The most feared revelation of the Trump presidency is that the theift of the swamp is now exposed naked under a spotlight. Trump, thankfully, has exposed that our government cannot be trusted. The swamp… Read more »

I would add my name to the group of people seeing and improvement in the country. I did not think he could do it, but his hard work has proved so many people wrong. I love the fact that he truly has faith in America and its possibilites. That Americans are truly a great country.

Joe

Why can’t they leave my president alone are they that jealous. The ones who have spent there term tying to fire the president needs to be voted out They haven’t did there states any good. Was there wrong doing by Biden?

I am all for President Trump and his handling of our nation as our leader and things are better since he came on the picture. I will vote again for Pres. Trump because he is not a democrat communist. Ever since he arrived , the dems have wasted several hours, days and months trying to get rid of him as he does not want to give America away in the incorrect manner the dems seem to want to do. So get right all you democrats and become real Americans again …go with the Republican flow to make our country even better than ever in time…and remember
