    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Donald Trump's job approval rating averaged 38.4% during his first year in office -- slightly more than 10 percentage points lower than any other elected president's first-year average. Bill Clinton is the only other president who was below 50% in his first year. All others were 57% or higher, with six of the 10 presidents elected since World War II averaging 60% or better in their first year.

    Why don't we wait and see what happens? The economy should be roaring by then. Unemployment will be statistically insignificant. Wages will be going up as the labor pool tightens. People will see the results of the booming economy in their paycheck and their retirement accounts. How soon people forget the lessons of 1984. Same thing was being said about Reagan and the Republicans and then people saw the impact of the tax cuts on their everyday life.

    By November the Wall should have progressed further. A DACA deal will be done. Infrastructure will at least be well into the talking/debate stage.

    Besides, most people don't connect Trump with being a strong Republican.

    Well, Jesus had worse numbers than that for approval, as evidenced by getting nailed on that Cross!
    Jeremiah had zero converts...

    You should ask what is God's approval rating for him, not what the Fake news media, abortion and gay marriage loving liberals and dems are!

    I wouldn't necessarily bet on any of those things happening. Wages going up? I seriously doubt it unless more states increase the minimum wage. Wages have been flat in real terms since Reagan. If Trump isn't connected to the GOP then why have so many GOP Congressmen decided to retire and not seek re-election?

    I suggest you consider the degree to which your religion is intertwined with your politics. Here are some who share your faith.
    Thank you Jesus for Trump.jpg

    It's basic economics. When the labor market is tight and there is demand for more workers, the cost of the workers, or wages, will increase. Not just the minimum wage but wages across the spectrum of jobs. Throw in the fact that corporate earnings will increase because of lower corporate tax rates and you have corporations with more cash than ever before. In order to attract the skilled workers they need they will pay more to get them. It's Econ 101.

    BTW, as a result of the tax cuts the internal minimum wage is going up at many, many companies. There is no minimum wage law driving these increases, just the marketplace being prompted by incentives.

    You're going to have to define "real terms" before I can comment. I would guess that wages have slightly outpaced inflation in the past 25-30 years. That would be my definition of "real terms". What's yours?

    You are implying that currently serving GOP congressmen are not going to seek election because Trump is President and they don't want to serve if he's the head of the party? Is that their stated reason? Or are you making an assumption?

    I think the reason some of these GOPers are not seeking reelection is because they know they are RINOs and will be "primaried". They don't want to run a primary campaign against a candidate that is a Trumpie because they know they will lose.

    It's too bad your property tax rates are so high and the rest of the country has been subsidizing your property tax deductions for so many years.

    I was not a Trump supporter. In the election, I voted AGAINST Hillary.
    That being said (or written, actually), I have to admit that Trump is doing a fairly good job.

    Allow me to add one: Trump got us out of that ridiculous TPP, which would have been disastrous (in my opinion).

    Regards, hope all is well,
    BiR
