    I think that would depend on what you mean by "approximately the same."

    For November 2010, Obama's approval rating was 45%.

    For November 2018, Trump's approval rating was 38%.

    Gallup
    Well, both numbers have two digits....

    And that Trump is a horrible monster not fit for furnished rooms while Obama is a distinguished gentleman. There's no fake news in the world that can fix that

    So what? The money you paid in tax is long gone. Now you're bludging a "free lunch" from a socialist welfare system.

    Without socialism, you'd die in poverty because you didn't live within your means and save for retirement. And without our socialist healthcare system, you'd probably die in painful misery, as well.
    Do pray tell. How's all the wealth produced by a " Capitalist" system would have come about under a Marxism/socialist system in order to pay for pensions, healthcare, infrastructure etc, etc?

    Did you miss the word " approx? By the way the Trumpets attacked in these pages and the left leaning media, one would think the difference was more like 20-30%

    Then there's this inconvenient fact...............................https://www.newsweek.com/trump-appro...higher-1054927

    Yes, a distinguished " gentleman " who turned his back on the only democracy in the Middle East and embraced terrorist Islamic states like Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood instead!

    The age pension and Medicare are socialist programs. It's not difficult to understand.

    "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs." It seems your needs have exceeded your ability, else you wouldn't need a taxpayer-funded pension.

    Rasmussen?
    So the Obama's rating in 11/2010 was "only" 16% higher than Cheato's - Trump is so tremendously great that a mere 16% doesn't even put a dent in his support, right?

    I'll bet you love the socialist dole payments collected every fortnight by the dole bludgers and some people who think the world owes them a living without themselves lifting a finger to help themselves. By all means the unfortunate and disabled who through no fault of their own can't help themselves should be and are assisted by the safety net, introduced long ago by a Liberal government by the way. What my needs or assets are no ones business but my own thank you very much!

    How the fuck did 7% become 16% all of a sudden?
