I regret not voting for him, does that count? I know your poll is extremely biased and doesn't show that option, but I figured I would mention it here.

Why do you regret not voting for him? He won without your vote, so it's not like it really mattered.

Why would you regret not voting for him? He won anyway so you not voting for him never made any difference whatsoever...

Your vote doesn't really make a difference anyways, it's more of on a personal level.

Yeah but even then, if the guy you now want to win is the guy that did win... what's there to regret?

Shit, I didn't realize that you had already posted this.

Personal level, that's all.

They'll be voting for this tomorrow before a CBO score can be made.

So far he is looking good for a second term. More jobs, better economy, and the dems are still stuck in Russia did it, and the media hasn't changed their tunes either. I considered them fake news long before Trump ever said anything, as do soo many people. That why drudge gets such wide readership. No one trusts the news any more, it too one sided and biased to trust any more, and the lack of trust in the news will only hurt the dems as they rely on it so much. Since their veiws are counter to common sense they need the news and media to constantly shove ideas down our throats until people give up and accept them as fact. Like this war on drugs and poverty, its going no where and both are getting worse. Same with immigration, allowing everyone in from everywere only makes the source countries of immigration worse off as there is no point in fixing their problems if people just leave, and it amkes America worse as they bring their crime and problems with them.



The re-elections are certainly going to be... um... interesting. >.>;;

Some of Trump's more aggressive or outlandish moves have been blunted by the establishment surrounding him, which could actually end up helping him in the long run. The 'skinny budget' his administration released would have impacted a lot of his own voting base with reduced services for education, the elderly, even some coal communities iirc with the cut of the Appalachian Regional Commission, but not all of these cuts would make it through Congress, especially those that have impacts in regions the Republicans want to retain. Same with the new health bill; the Senate has indicated pretty clearly that it wouldn't be passing it without some substantial changes, and blasted it for being slammed through the House in a manner that made Obamacare's passing downright leisurely by comparison. (Also worth noting that the Republican majority in the Senate is pretty thin, so I think even three or four moderate Republicans refusing to back the bill would be enough to kill it.) So the health bill and budget that gets through won't likely screw over as many people as the ones Trump are supporting would. This benefits him in two different ways; first, obviously, he doesn't shaft as many of his own voters as he originally would have, and second, he gets to blame any lingering cuts left in the bill on everyone else, even if the cuts were in his bill as well. "The Appalachian Regional Commission got cut?! NOT OUR COAL WORKERS! CLEARLY THE WORK OF THE EVIL DEMOCRATS!" "But Mr. President, your original bill also cut the-" "That sounds like Fake News I'm hearing!"

And it's kind of hard to tell how many of the other things that would personally irritate me even really matters to the average Trump voter. =P The clear intention to put big business interests above any environmental or regulatory concerns, (not just climate change,) for the sake of easy money is alarmingly short-sighted to me, but hard to tell how many people who voted for the guy give much of a shit about the environment in the first place. Trump's administration actually having less transparency than Obama's in some respects is, again, not encouraging in the slightest, but folks who just trust Trump unconditionally aren't going to care that he's hiding things from the public. The Commander In Chief's willingness to make decisive statements on subjects he doesn't actually know anything about is potentially disasterous, (NATO, China/North Korea, etc,) but again, a certain subset seem opposed to the very notion that it happens, or that it matters that the President makes decisions or statements without first educating himself on the subject.

If nothing else, be interesting to see him transition back into full Campaign Mode. I mean, he's already holding rallies of course, (his favorite part of the whole experience this past year or two, no doubt,) but when the Presidential race hits full swing, look forward to hearing the man who only recently admitted the job was 'not as easy as he expected' go right back to telling his supporters 'Imma make everything better, it'll be so EASY!'



Zanten, Doer Of The Things

Unless He Forgets In Which Case Zanten, Forgetter Of The Things

Or He Procrascinates, In Which Case Zanten, Doer Of The Things Later

Or It Involves Moving Furniture, in Which Case Zanten, F*** You.

99.9% of these regret claims are fake leftist activism.

I can't say I'm entirely happy with Trump, although there are numerous I do like he has done.

You should only regret voting for Trump if you think Hillary would have been better. Those were our options, Hillary and Trump. We knew Hilary would have been bad, so we had to take a chance on Trump.

But didn't Hilary get more votes? So really the people didn't choose trump.

I'm not terribly up to speed on the electorial process in the USA though. But I assume people actually vote for electors, which can deviate from the peoples vote, certainly not the most elegant way to make democracy work, that's for sure.

Its done that way because the United States of America is a Union of like minded States. Each state gets proportional voting for the president based on their populations. The USA federal government is similar to the EU, just with more authority over member states than the EU and more control over spending.

Since only 3 people chose 'other' in the poll, it don't really think it's biased.
