No America

Data Point – Young Liberals DO want to transform America

This is what three generations of “Hate America” New Leftists have wrought by taking over our Culture and Education systems. Emphasis mine, reformatted: Kaufmann polled American liberals to gauge their willingness “to jettison the country’s cultural identity.” … He consciously removed conservatives and centrists to focus only on self-described liberals. He presented them with 16 “outlandish” statements …

Data Point – Approval for Republicans > Democrats in Congress?

More Americans approve of the job congressional Republicans are doing than of congressional Democrats’ performance — 40% vs. 35%. The rating for Republicans in Congress has risen six percentage points since late October, before the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives. Over the same period, congressional Democrats’ approval rating has …
