Gallup vs. Pew

The Washington Examiner has a story out suggesting Democrats are “poised for huge election wins” based on Party Affiliation.  Of course the Examiner bases their story on a recent Gallup Poll showing---ready for this---a four-point drop in overall Republican Party affiliation, since December 16th.  Of course, Gallup only polls Republicans and Democrats, leaving out unaffiliated independents who voted for Trump.  In the poll, Gallup does point out the Democrats “affiliation” has not grown, only that Republicans have dropped. 

Given the plethora of the Mainstream Media’s all out assault on the President, and the non-stop drumbeat of the Fake Trump/Russian/Collusion bullshit, it’s no wonder Gallup found their desired narrative, or that the Examiner regurgitated it.

But, take heart.  Justin Haskins at the Blaze reported a Pew Research Poll that completely conflicts with Gallup’s “summation”:

Study suggests Democrats could be in big trouble in 2018 ~ Justin Haskins Jun 4, 2017 5:50 pm

“A new study produced by the Pew Research Center has found that from December 2015 to March 2017, voters in a key voting demographic were more likely to remain loyal to the Republican Party than people who identified as Democrats were.

According to the study, released on May 17, 86 percent of Americans in the 50-64 demographic continuously identified themselves as Republican from December 2015 to March 2017. Only 72 percent of Democrats in the same demographic continuously remained tied to that party. According to the study, 10 percent of Democrats aged 50-64 stopped identifying as part of the Democratic Party at some point but returned, while 14 percent switched to the Republican Party and did not return. The results showed nearly identical results for Democrats and Republicans in the 30-49 demographic and the 65 and older demographic.”

So, there you have it---two polls, two different narratives/perspectives.  It’s not really difficult to admit Trump’s numbers have fallen since his victory---4-6 points, depending on who’s polling---nor is it difficult to understand who’s driving his numbers down.  The GOP-E (ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS) are frightened to death to hitch their wagons to the President, his agenda, or his policies, and most of us know they’re directly responsible for hindering the progress, specifically, the "do nothing" Republican-controlled U.S. Senate.  

Yes, I'm talking to you, Mitch!  You and your directionless "leadership" are becoming a joke.  And, the people are not blind to your feckless leadership and cowardly resolve to NOT PASS LEGISLATION.

And, make no mistake, the Ryan-controlled House is just as complicit as the Senate in not moving Trump's---AND THE PEOPLE'S---agenda forward.

It's bad enough that we, THE PEOPLE, have to put up with the Liberal Media's, and the Democrat's daily assaults on our President---that was expected.  But, for Republicans and Conservatives to watch their own representatives turn their backs on Mr. Trump is reprehensible.  

I'd wager if faithful Donald Trump supporters were polled with the simple question: "How do you feel your Party is doing in accomplishing the goals and agenda of President Trump's campaign promises?", the overwhelming result would be "severely disappointed". 
I'll post the results and percentages as soon as they develop.
