    Which is actually up from the 36% he polled at on November 2, 2016 with Gallup just a few days before he won.

    Trump and Clinton Finish With Historically Poor Images

    Nationalists being elected all over the globe (along with a sharp rise in local nationalist/separatist movements) isn't enough evidence for them......they have to rely on gallup polling and what the corporate globalist media tells them is reality.

    Sad really

    Again, just anecdotal so it doesn't mean much, but the folks I've talked with are Swiss, German, Austrian, British, and Spanish. And yeah, I'm with @intimagotar1, they all pretty much just made fun of the US for electing him.

    All that being said, what foreign folk think of our president is very far down the list of things I care about. A President's job is to put country first. Unfortunately, Trump isnt very good at that either.

    Give me a freaking break. My post citing the Gallup poll was in direct response to flgator2's comment about the approval ratings of other leaders, who I compared to trump's, not to opine whether or not there was or wasn't a worldwide nationalist movement.

    Some of us who despise Trump personally and politically actually understand why he won the election and may not have even voted for Hillary. Yet, on the other hand, most of Trump's supporters have become seemingly unable to admit he was an equally poor candidate as Hillary, and a simply wretched human being.

    To me that's actually sadder, really, to turn your phrase.

    Can we talk about what a disaster your thread titles are?

    Read More?

    Take two seconds and craft a thread title instead of just copying and pasting the title of whatever crap you're reading on the internet. Pretty please?

    Trump might be a poor candidate but he is the only one selling a different message.....so what are we left with?

    With all the democrat candidates it's all the same s..t just a different face/race/sex in which to relate it to


    same thing with Bush, Kasich, Rubio, etc. All the same

    Yup. Ciccolina or something like that, or that was her porn name, not that I know about stuff. :)

    Actually, she was really popular when I lived there in the late 80s.

    He sho 'nuff is selling the idea that lying, cheating and stealing is the way to the top because there are so many fools ERRR voters that fall for ERRRR relate to it.

    If I'm wanting to build a mid-high rise, casino, or some other phony real estate fraud fest, he's definitely the man. For anything else, well, watch your wallet.

    Couldn't agree more. And its the difference in his messaging that makes his support more loyal than others. Otherwise he's just the next flavor of the day. But he's certainly not a flavor that suits my taste buds.

    This poll was released weeks before the riots in France started. Solid timing. Lol. How about since then? I bet the view of Macron is quite a bit different in the last 5 months. And what about May since the Brexit fiasco? I mean really what's PDT done worse than those two and Merkel's catastrophic immigration policy?

    Macron's approval is disastrously low, but I don't know what that would tell you about what they think about Trump.

    What gives you the idea that you're voting for anything better?

    Because there's been actual videos......mind you that the social media chiefs were having blocked like crazy almost as soon as they got posted. Then the mainstream media and the "factcheckers" say it didn't happen and call it a lie.

    See how that works????? Real news becomes "fake news"

    But I've seen the videos when they were posted a few months ago. They most certainly are real and also happened in the UK

    The video posted by @jackwhite? You realize that French people don't generally chant in English, right? What language would you guess they chant in? And what countries would you guess do chant in English in Europe?

    Apparently, the scam worked though, as they really convinced you.

    Edit: Was it this video? Because that isn't France:
