The New York Times must have needed a pallet of paper bags in which to hyperventilate after running this poll. After decades of proclaiming tax cuts would literally starve people, seems Americans like tax cuts.
Forty-six percent of Americans strongly or somewhat approved of the law in early January, up from 37 percent when the bill was nearing passage in December.
We’ll get to the numbers faster than Nancy Pelosi runs a software upgrade. First, an explanation:
At the same time, falling unemployment, accelerating economic growth and a surging stock market have made Americans increasingly positive about both their own finances and the overall economy. That could be good news for Republicans hoping to overcome Mr. Trump’s unpopularity in the midterm elections.
Over all, 42 percent of Americans believe the national economy is better than it was a year ago, according to the Times survey, which polled 10,509 adults in the first week of January. Only 23 percent believe the economy has gotten worse. And a broader measure of consumer confidence, which combines five questions on economic and financial conditions into a single index, rose significantly in January after remaining flat for most of 2017.
We’re just over two weeks into January. Stories of tax reform successes are legion. While the economy is rebounding, and people caress their faces with their dolla dolla bills, Democrats prepare to shut down the government over illegal immigrants (see Democrats Okay with Government Shutdown Over 800k Illegal Immigrants and Democrats Threaten Government Shutdown to Save DACA Program).
We see you, Democrats. We appreciate your honest approach to treachery.
Back to the numbers in this poll. Only 38% give Trump credit for the tax cuts. Sure, we can blame the “fake news” press. But we might also blame the Orange One himself for his constant self-inflicted distractions. Some of which have been funnier than watching Maxine Waters solve a quadratic equation. I speak of the nuclear desk button.
Remember when Crowder watched CNN for 16 hours straight? Of course you do. It’s burned into your mind like a naked tranny. POTUS was relatively silent in that 16 hour period. When he keeps his lips — and shitposting fingers — silent, the media goes “silent.” By repeating the same seven mediocre stories more often than a traveling toddler asks “Are we there yet?”
Good economic news is delivered naturally in people’s pocketbooks. They don’t need CNN to tell them “Hey, you have more of your own money now.” They just know. Making it difficult for Democrats to lie about the dangers of tax cuts.
