President Trump and other Republicans across America received some good news from the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll of 900 registered voters. The poll, which was conducted between October 14-17, has found Trump’s approval rating hovering around 47 percent.

That’s the highest it’s been on this poll, which means that more and more Americans are getting on board with the president’s agenda and will more than likely vote for GOP candidates in November.

Since the beginning of the year, the president’s approval rating has fluctuated, jumping between 39% and 46%, only reaching 47% this month. His disapproval rating has also fluctuated, but dropped significantly in recent months, landing at a low of 49% in this most recent survey.

Voter enthusiasm is up 15% and 7% from the 2014 and 2010 midterms, respectively, indicating that this year’s elections could show larger than average voter turnout.

Among likely voters, Democrats have the overall edge, with 50% saying they would prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress, and 41% saying they would prefer that Republicans retain control. Prior to the “Red Wave” in 2010 in which Republicans made historic gains in the House of Representatives, the same survey had Republicans holding a 7% lead over Democrats.

When participants in the poll were asked about which issues facing the country were the most important to them, 21 percent stated the economy and jobs, making it the number one answer. A follow up question was asked about which political party would do the best job handling the economy, to which 43 percent chose the Republican Party, while 28 percent chose the Democratic Party.

The second and third most important issues according to those polled is health care and immigration. When asked who would handle this issue best, the Democrats came out on top.

While the vast majority of the poll’s results are mixed, the takeaway here is that President Trump’s approval rating has gone up and the GOP leads on the most important issue, which bodes well for the midterms.

Enormous Confederate Carving Subject of Renewed Debate

Will Stone Mountain be vanquished by an army of virtue signalers?

Published

Over the course of the last several years, and with a vast acceleration in 2020, municipalities around the nation have been removing, renaming, and re-dedicating a number of Confederate monuments now deemed offensive in the wake of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Not everyone is a fan of the move, however, with opponents often suggesting that this is a revision of history, and that these men were also American soldiers, in a way. Now, one of the largest Confederate monuments in the world, the carving on the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia, is facing renewed calls for removal. Crowds are growing larger at the monthly meetings of the Georgia board considering what to do about the giant carving of Confederacy leaders in Stone Mountain. But officials seem no closer to an answer. The Stone Mountain Memorial Association decided to make a few changes last month, but they weren’t enough to placate people who want the monument removed. A museum exhibit will tell the story of the carving, as well as the site’s ties to the Ku Klux Klan. But having to make those decisions could increase the volume and the pressure on the board, NPR reports. Critics have pointed out that the carving is a modern piece, and not a relic of a bygone era. “Where we go from there?” asked the board’s chairman, the Rev. Abraham Mosley. “I don’t know.” Putting the site in a Georgia context seems like a challenge. None of the three men—Confederate Gens. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, and Confederacy President Jefferson Davis—was from the area, and no battles were fought there. As a piece of history, it’s not that historic, having been completed in 1972. The monument sits within Stone Mountain Park, an amusement park of sorts, that has lost a number…

Russia Continues Harassment of American Military Just 35 Miles Off US Coast

That’s a little too close for comfort.

Published

When it comes to dealing with Russia, much of the US policy is straightforward, and likely on account of the fact that the Kremlin has been pulling the same, silly stunts for decades now. In fact, it’s getting a little stale. Russia loves to use her military as a nuisance to the United States, posing danger at times, certainly, but most often just being undeniably annoying. This week was no exception. Russia’s defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US. At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises – the biggest since the Cold War. Russia says that they are 300 miles off the coast of Hawaii, yet unconfirmed satellite images from June 19 appear to show them much closer – within 35 miles of the U.S. state. The moves have forced the US military into action. Twice this month – on June 14 and 18 – the U.S. scrambled F-22s from Hawaii in response to Russian bomber flights. Neither time did the bombers enter the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) perimeter, and so they were not intercepted. On June 17 the Navy admitted that the USS Carl Vinson and her strike group were operating near Hawaii, without revealing when they had arrived, or why. It has been only a few days since Russian President Vladimir Putin met with US President Joe Biden in Geneva, in a meeting that both men seemed to suggest was a success. This latest Kremlin aggression begs to differ.
