Latest poll of presidential scholars: Lincoln 1, Biden 14, Rgn 16 & Trump last

Sunday, February 25, 2024 7:39 PM
[view link] I'm sure all the MAGA fanboys will be convinced by this.😂 But a wide range of scholars were sampled. Biden's biggest accomplishments so far IMO are (1) beating Trump and stopping the decline of America's global standing that Trump started, and (2) resuming the fight against global warming that was urgently needed after four lost years under Trump. Trump was basically the most unamerican president ever--he was and is, against democracy and believes rich and powerful people like him are special and above the law. Both of these positions are contrary to what has made America special and great. But in fairness I will say that there were a couple of things I liked about his administration. He hit China with some tariffs, but didn't start the trade war that many had feared. And he did seem to deter illegal immigration--though his tactics were inhumane. (Biden administration has actually sent back more illegals than Trump's, but that is partly because more have been trying to get in.) I wish Biden hadn't run again because of his age; but he is 100 times better than a second term of the narcissist-in-chief.

It's not Biden's age, it's his cognition that is collapsing. Look at news footage from 4 years ago compared to today.

I'd flip Lincoln and Washington. Reagan over Biden when Biden is declining mentally even earlier than Reagan did and has only been in office 4 years is madness. Biden shouldn't have even been in the poll he's not done yet. I'd push up Kennedy because he had to navigate a crazy time and he actually grew as a politician while in office. Trump should definitely be last.

Wow, you poll a bunch of Democrats and surprisingly they conclude Democrats are awesome. Under Biden, things are less affordable, the country is more divided, the world is less peaceful, and neighborhoods are less safe than they were under Trump. Anyone who ranks Trump, whose legacy is still being defined, after Buchanan who split the country and Andrew Johnson who botched Reconstruction, has an agenda and is not to be taken seriously. Not like there's an agenda to trash Trump before an election, or anything...

Raegan: he defeated and destroyed the USSR without firing a bullet. Real history will not be kind at all to Biden, Woke historians will continue to adore him until at some point Historians will say, "What the Hell was all this Woke SHIT, and why was he sniffing little girls hair?" There was a 1970s Honda motorcycle commercial based a few 100 years in the future. A guy in the museum looking at a Honda, the signed reads "50 Miles Per Gallon". The guy asks the historian, "50 Gallons of what?" The historian responds, "We don't know." This is how history will look at the Democrats and Woke crowd, just as we do today with 1800s Slavery. Like in "The Blues Brothers" putting the band back together, the Democrats, the Party of Plantations, Slavery and Segregation, are trying to put the Plantations back together. When Biden says, 'You ain't Black if you don't vote Democrat" is just as racist as it gets.

The woke shit especially on gender and just a general lack of patriotism is going to be horrific to look back on. But I don’t think the country is divided because of Trump or Biden it’s divided because neither party is talking what they need to talk economically for the middle class. The idea that Trump with rhetoric and disrespect for the basics of democracy is less divisive is really pushing it logically.

Mogul you spelled Reagan wrong. Reagan's trickle down economics was a miserable failure. Look at the explosion in the wealth gap from 1981 and on. Reagan lowered taxes for the super rich. Trump also lowered taxes for the super rich and raised taxes for everyone else. The largest factor in inflation has been extreme corporate greed which was greatly helped by Reagan and Trump. What does Trump do for the middle class? Nothing. Biden went to help striking union workers. Does Trump do that? Absolutely not.

"2023 was the hottest year on record ever for our planet. Being too stupid to believe in climate change doesn't make it not real." I believe 100% in climate change. And I believe in treating our planet well. Some things I don't believe in: (*) the ability to accurately measure global temperatures more than 150 or so years ago within one degree celsius, thus making it impossible to truly know the historical record for temperatures (*) shutting down clean, safe nuclear plants which would have run for decades longer, to meet a bullshit "low carbon" agenda (Germany) (*) using slave labor to mine for lithium so that entitled rich leftists who are insulated from the peons can post on their petroleum- and mineral-derived iPhones (also made with a lot of slave labor) how righteous they are for driving electric vehicles, which only actually reduce carbon footprint if they're driven about 200K miles (due to the upfront carbon cost to make the car) We need to care for our planet because it's all we've got. But ironically, the failed predictions in the article I referenced are counterproductive. When you've got idiots like Al Gore predicting that there will be no more polar ice caps in 10 years time, any sane person knows he's either being dishonest, or is an absolute moron, or both. This takes a very serious issue and caricaturizes it. I also don't believe in calling someone "stupid" for having a different perspective. But in this case I'll make an exception, you pseudointellectual stupid ass.

Trans people and drag shows are way down the list of importance for me while Republicans waste time arguing about irrelevant nonsense like that as the sea levels get higher and we have more wildfires every year as the planet gets hotter and hotter. Do I care about being Mr nicey nice and not offending people arguing whether climate change is real? Absolutely not. It's ridiculously obvious that climate change will affect all of us if ignored.

Dustyj: [view link] This is a good book on the history of taxation in America, printed 2022 so it is current: [view link] Liberals have used "Trickle Down" excuse for over 100 years, now called Supply Side Economics. I've yet to see any society tax itself to prosperity. The highest taxed states/cities are disasters with crime, homelessness, education, welfare. CA is now running a $73B deficit when I few years back they had a nice surplus. Keep in mind, when the wealthy buy a big house, like let's say Obama or the Bidens or to be fair Trump, they employ people to take care of it, the Hollywood "elites" do too. They employ people to take care of their property, homes (do you think Oprah mops her floors or changes her sheets or does her laundry?), planes, yachts, make their dinners, on and on and on. Swag Bags at Hollywood events can be over $100K. Anyway... Reagan & Trump: (thanks to whoever the spelling fuck cop is, I can't edit once posted and I have a bit of dyslexia - like no ever misspells here) Lowering marginal tax rates actually increased collections on the Top 5%. Per the IRS 2020 data (most recent): The Top 5% pay 63% of all Income Taxes. 63%! NOTE: This is just Federal, not State. Places like NJ. IL, NY, CA nail the wealthy, and NYC has it's own City Income Tax, not to mention the Cost of Living in these big liberal cities is wicked expensive: Top 1%, over $550K, account for 42% of Personal Federal Income Taxes Collected Top 5%, over $220K, account for 63% of Personal Federal Income Taxes Collected Top 10%, over $152K, account for 74% of Personal Federal Income Taxes Collected Top 25%, over $86K, account for 89% of Personal Federal Income Taxes Collected Top 50%, over 42K, account for 98% of Personal Federal Income Taxes Collected Bottom 50%, making less than $42K account of 2% of personal Federal Income Taxes Collected I'm quoting real data from gov't sources, not CNN, The View, MSNBC or Harvard. America is collecting more taxes year over year, and yet we continue to spend way more than we collect rather than tempering spending to pay down the debt and reduce deficit spending.

@mogul Supply Side works, but it's like watering a plant. Too much and the plant dies. It worked under JFK, but it failed under Reagan. It only "succeeded" under Reagan, it the sense that politicians found out they could run a structural deficit with no real plans to fix it, and still get reelected.

Yes climate change is real. But, if we make it priority #1 to stop it, that's likely to make the government too powerful, making us poor and unfree. And, dubious it will work anyways. Environmentalists have a long track record of not knowing the difference between gestures and effective action. For example, shipping plastic waste to Asia (thus releasing a lot of CO2), where it's burned in the open air, in places that already have deadly air pollution.

The only way past climate change is innovation, not repenting of western civilization. We tell China, India, Southeast Asia, and Africa not to modernize via fossil fuels, they're going to (rightfully) tell us to go fuck ourselves in the ass. Not to mention enviro doomsayers have a long and distinguished track record...of failure. If they were right, Miami would be a coral reef, the ice caps would be gone, and the coasts would have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish. I'm a climate change believer, but I'm not willing to go back 200 years to end it, and definitely not to placate Mother Gaia.

If you want to learn more about the survey (instead of making false claims that the respondents were only democrats), look at the PDF linked to in the second paragraph of the article. Respondents included those who identified as democrats, republicans, and independents. There was not a strong partisan divide in rating Trump--even among Republican respondents he was ranked only 41 on average (45 is the bottom). Not a big partisan divide with Biden either--even among republican respondents he was rated #30 and #19 among independents.

Distyj is stupid even for a progressive. The climate has been changing since the earth was created. We've had the ice age, the little ice age and on and on and on chicken little. By the way 2023 being the hottest year ever, means most likely the hottest year in the last 150 years for which there are some weather records. The coldest year for which there are records was 1816, which means it was getting colder back then, which of course meant it was warmer before, because it couldn't be colder then than the ice age, which means as much as it getting hotter now, because as we all know taking a 20 year period out of an 800 million year history is just the best way to do things. Luckily socialism will save us. Look what the Socialist Nazis did for Germany. The climate is changing. Oh well. Even if this country killed itself by doing what the lameoid morons known as progressives want, it would have no effect on climate change. Zip. Zero. Nada. Every country would have to do the same and in a world we still kill each other over nothing, that ain't happening. Progressives seem to skew younger, which is why I look at climate change and think: maybe soak some firewood in used motor oil and burn it all weekend......

@dustyj: a lot of cities are paved and have gazillon of tons of concrete that retains heat, and measurements are taken there. While, yes it is heat, the number of people dying from heat and cold has been greatly reduced over the past 50 years. North America up into Alaska was once tropical. How do we know? Plant fossils of tropical trees have been found. Humans havea very small affect on "Climate Change" compared to one good volcano blast.

There are zero Trump signs. Only democrat signs in front of those beautiful homes. Then I go to rural areas where the homes are in poor condition needing many repairs and a far less educated area. That is where the Trump signs are in front of Goober's shack. Why do you think that is?

There are a lot of bad assumptions on this thread about "what liberals want," and liberal beliefs on mitigating climate change. Also, I think some of the liberals on this thread wrongly assume that the conservatives are all climate deniers, etc. I think it is fair to say that people of both persuasions would like to slow climate change and maintain a high standard of living. It would be nice if we could debate policy options rather than demonizing each other, but whatevs. As an example, all liberals that I know (and given that I'm in the North East I know a lot) want increased nuclear power generation. Most are aware of the shortcomings of recycling and do what they can to mitigate it. I'd suggest to my fellow PLs that happen to consume a lot of talk radio or cable news, it might be worth you while to seek out a little bit of the other side's media to see what liberals actually want. I think you'll find that it is quite different than what you currently think. Also, MSNBC and CNN suck, don't start there.

Because under the Democrats we're hurtling towards the abyss. Divided by demographic characteristic and played against each other. The border is being overrun with not just criminals (literally released from jail) but young, military-age males from terrorist or enemy nations including Russia, Iran, and China. Inflation has hiked prices and there's no putting that genie back in the bottle--Dems love to talk about GDP, unemployment, and other stats that have more relevant to the securities-owning class than the working class.

Somehow under Trump it didn't lead to inflation. The world under Biden is more expensive and less safe.

^ Actually, Trump voters are less religious than Republicans on the whole. I think Trump chose Pence because the known womanizer and bon vivant needed credibility with the religious right. He focused a lot less on "morality" issues than say, DeSantis and his 6 week abortion ban (suicidal for his chances). The "book bans" are a nothingburger except among radical activists. We know what to expect from Trump, since he was already president for 4 years. The Trump = Armageddon scare doesn't fly anymore. Especially when second term presidents start as lame ducks and have less capital to work with than in the first. I would have loved someone to take a hatchet to the government and the permanent bureaucracy, the surveillance state, the censorship state, the military bureaucracies (we have more generals and admirals than we did during WW2), slash spending, and simplify the tax system (not necessarily cut, but simplify). I know that under Trump, he will probably attempt most of these without great effect. Under Biden, I would expect all this to get worse. Biden can't run as "not Trump" anymore. He has a record and Americans don't approve of it.

We are not going to drop out of NATO. The Dems are masters of spreading fear with this, and saying “Republicans want to push granny off the cliff by cutting Medicare”. Medicare and SS needs serious tuning for sure as they are facing serious financial challenges in the next 8 years. Lest we forget all the Anchor Babies that are coming as the Illegal Aliens roll in and then Chain Migration can go to Ramming Speed too. Congress, all of them are cowards to deal with this. SS and Medicare can be adjusted for those 50 and under giving them 10-20 years to plan and prepare. SS was never designed to be a retirement program as so many use it as. They need to create an IRA and push for 401k programs to allow more tax deferred saving; Roth IRAs for those under 30 is a HUGE GIFT for tax exempt income when they retire. Schools need to educate on how to retire, plan and save rather than Trans and Woke bullshit.

Trump says he’ll build a wall, comes in, wants to build a Wall and other security and enforcement policies yet Congress and the “Deep State” do all they can to block it. In 1987, the Dems promised Raegan if he signed Amnesty, they’d secure the border. He signed, they lied, CA went socialist and now we have Biden’s Immigration disaster that is a real threat to national security and individuals. Biden signed over 90 ExOs to neuter Trump’s Border Policies – 90 can all be reversed. The House passed HR 2 last May, and Chuck Schumer refuses to even touch it; that’s 9 months. So, they blame Republicans/MAGA for not dealing with the Senate Bill which actually: 1) is not needed as POTUS already has tools he refuses to use and ExOs he can reverese; 2) this Bill allows over 2M Illegals to cross annually; 3) it has verbiage to prevent whoever is POTUS in 2025 to not veto or neuter it – they strongly suspect Trump, or the GOP, will win so they added a Poison Pill. The Dems definition of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” is just amnesty, again. Worked in 1987, rinse, lather, repeat.

No, the Democrats aren’t Nazis, they adopt the same methods just as the Jesuits did in the late 1700s, “Give us your children until they are 7 and we’ll have them for life.” So, the Dems control K-College when Carter created the Department of Education in 1978/79 - perfect.

Health care for those who had major medical issues needed help, however, the entire industry didn’t need to be over-hauled. Millions had great coverage, and few didn’t. Those few who really needed help could have been covered with Medicaid, but no, Obama had to take over the industry with bureaucratic controls. At the same time, student loans were taken over, and interest from them is used to fund Obamacare. They couldn’t even do a website for $1B with outsourcing to a Canadian company; Founder could have done one for $50M. Insurance premiums and deductibles blew-up. To add, Biden has YET to even try to bring back antibiotic pharmaceutical manufacturing from China that we found out in 2020 during COVID-19 account for 90% we use today – Made In China. What if China decides to cut back on supply? 90% is a big nut.

@dustyj: Robert (not so) Reich Tik Tok blathering his political dogma. Spending - That is a huge problem for Trump for sure and it needs to be dealt with. Democrats have done NOTHING to reduce deficit spending, they’ve increased it. We bring in more tax revenue than ever yet we don’t have a plan to temper spending to reduce these $1.5T annual deficits since 2020, and unused COVID-19 money is NOT being clawed back.

@dustyj: Robert (not so) Reich Tik Tok blathering his political dogma. The only thing China, Russia, Iran, North Korea understands is force. China has serious economic issues today that can be leveraged to our benefit. “That’s not fair”, a Democrat would say. Horseshit – China does it globally ALL THE TIME. And Climate Change – China and India are building dirty, real dirty, coal plants as fast as possible and yet the USA needs EVs and no gas stoves. Iran was economically decimated under Trump’s sanctions. Today, Iran doing $80B in oil sales to India, North Korea and China, and Biden’s buddy Putin is too. Iran can be defeated economically as can Russia. Good job Biden stopping LNG facilities so we can sell Europe NatGas – the cleanest fuel next to nuclear. When we had Arab Spring during Obama, he did NOTHING to offer support, and those protesters were crushed.

@dustyj: Robert (not so) Reich Tik Tok blathering his political dogma. Jamie Dimon spouting lies. Hilarious! Sure, he is supporting Trump and that is his right. He is seen as a traditor to the Democrats. I’m really surprised Reich didn’t say Dimon is just a Putin Puppet. Guess that will come later.

@dustyj: Robert (not so) Reich Tik Tok blathering his political dogma. Influential leaders in America need to stand up - like who? Reich doesn’t say who. Al Sharpton? Al Gore – The Earth has a Fever dude? Claudine “Plagiarizer” Gay? These people work in the background and use the MSM and schools to spread their idea of what AMERIKA will look like in the next 30 years. It’s all about the Long Game with the RINOs, Democrats and Globalists. Show Me The Money, and I’ll do whatever you want.

@dustyj: Women's rights and all - they support ONLY when they have leverage it for power and control. Obama had a solid Congressional Majority when he did ObamaCare, and destroyed healthcare costs. The one thing he said he'd do would be to codify Roe v. Wade, and he didn't. And what did we get? NY, CA and CO allowing partial birth abortions under any condition. Even SCJ RBG said Roe was a shit decision, and she was hardcore Left as the SC ever had. To be clear - I do support a woman's right to abortion to 12-16 weeks or in the event of her life. If the child is viable, it should be saved. And Planned Parenthood was a creation of Margaret Sanger in 1916 to help reduce the Black population in America - yeah, she was a genocidal racist. But then the Democrats are OK with that. The Democrats, the Party of Plantations, Slavery and Segregation are doing all they can to bring back the Plantation forever this time. And all the Wokesters just support it. And you are concerned about Trump? I've heard Trump interviews dating back over 30 years, and what he said then is the same today. Biden is just a parroting tool who says what he thinks people want to hear.

Here is a study by one of the most renown Economist in the world, the youngest Black tenured professor in history at Harvard at 30. He did a study about racial bias in police shootings. He was told “this doesn’t fit the narrative” by many and of all people then-Harvard Chancellor Claudine “Plagiarizer” Gay. The narrative was more important than the truth. Imagine that. There is an hour plus YouTube you can watch: [view link] The one from Gutfeld! is only a few minutes and takes clips from the YouTube highlighting important points. Now, the Democrats here will freak out this is on Gutfeld!/Fox – OMG! I’ve watch the YouTube interview and Gutfeld!, and Gutfeld! is a good, accurate abridged segment. [view link]

One of the stupidest surveys ever. They hand-picked over 550 people, stated without proof it was a bipartisan group and then only 33% responded. The idea Biden is a top 14 President is pablum for the impotent. Anyone taking this poll as accurate is stupid and should never breed.

@dustyj - "Do you really think Trump would do better?" Trump HAS done better, despite his faults and ego. Better running in place than dashing towards the abyss. We can't take another term of being played against each other, or of this many million more unassimilated illegals.

Trump said to Black voters: "Vote for me, you have nothing to lose." Trump's record on Black employment was the best ever. WSJ, Jan-2022, "The Trump Boom Lifted Black Americans Before the pandemic, the economy grew in ways that mostly benefited low-income and middle-class households." [view link]

Trump has done remarkable things, he’s built a wall across the southern border and gotten Mexico to pay for it, he’s increased Tariffs on Chinese manufactured goods and forced the Chinese to pay those fees, he’s gone bankrupt on five separate occasions while owning a casino. The correct word to use when describing Donald J. Trump is truly unbelievable.

^ Trump has never ever declared personal bankruptcy. Not once. Let's look at how Biden has fared: China blockading the Philippines; China threatening Taiwan Dail; Chinese Navy in the Red Sea; Russia committing genocide in the Ukraine; Houthis attacking us; Syrian attacking us; Iraqis attacking us, all paid for by Iran, whom Biden bends over for daily; open border; democrat-controlled cities going bankrupt... yeah, a great guy. Biden, being a democrat is sadly all too believable from the party of foreigners, deviants and traitors.

I never claimed that he declared personal bankruptcy but since you seem to be all in on the distinction, take note that I pointed out what a great businessman he is, while I praise his many attributes let’s take note of how many people he owes money to, if being a debt dodger, isn’t praiseworthy what about being a draft dodger, and let’s not forget Trump University, what a great institution of higher learning he founded.

@skibum You should also give Trump credit for how many new Biden voters he continues to create, just the thought of another Trump term is the only way that Biden will get re-elected.

^ Ahem - 10:1 Biden will not run by saying "I've decided not to run for office. I need to spend more time with my family, Barrack and Michelle who have taken care of me while I was POTUS," My longshot guess will be the Super Delegates, between riots and mayhem, will put-up Newsom/Whitmer, not Harris/Biden.

^ Biden polls better against Trump than any challenger. [view link] Trump beats Harris, who came in 5th in her home state and hasn't distinguished herself as VP. Trump beats Newsom. Go figure, Make America Great Again beats Make America California. Trump thrashes Whitmer and her COVID baggage.
