    President Trump's approval ratings appear to be softening among members of his own party and independents, according to a series of polls conducted by The Hill and HarrisX since July.

    The president's approval rating among Republicans sat at 87 percent in July, but has slipped to 79 percent in the latest Hill-HarrisX survey conducted earlier this month.

    The president's approval rating among independents has also dropped.

    Of those that identified as independent, 44 percent surveyed said they approved of the job Trump was doing in July. That number has declined to 42 percent, according to the same poll conducted earlier this month.

    Trump received 46 percent of the independent vote in 2016, while Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton received 42 percent, according to CNN exit polling.

    Trump's low approval among Democrats has remained steady over the same time period, fluctuating between the late teens and low twenties range.

    The latest poll on Trump's approval rating found that 18 percent of Democratic respondents say they approve of Trump.

    The apparent decline in support from Republicans and independents could negatively impact Trump ahead of his 2020 reelection as he looks to galvanize his base while attempting to pull undecided voters to his side.

    'Absolute incompetence': GOP primary challenger Joe Walsh pounds Trump on immigration
    Joe Walsh is charging President Trump with fumbling border security, a move for the jugular as the conservative former Illinois congressman begins his long-shot bid to unseat the populist commander in chief in the 2020 Republican primary.

    As a concerned Trump moves urgently to deliver on his signature issue, Walsh told the Washington Examiner that he is an honest, effective alternative who is equipped to resolve the immigration crisis. Indeed, the ex-lawmaker, known for a sharp tongue that can be as acerbic as Trump’s, claims the president is making matters worse.

    Not only are the measures Trump favors exacerbating the challenge of securing the southern border, Walsh said, the president’s habit of demonizing immigrants from Mexico and Central America, both legal and illegal, is driving key voters into the arms of a Democratic Party that is far less committed to halting unauthorized entries into the U.S.

    “Absolute incompetence” is how Walsh describes Trump’s border security policies and attempts to reduce illegal immigration. “Trump’s a one-trick pony about the border. All he talked about was the wall, the wall, the wall, and Mexico’s going to pay for it. There was no nimbleness beyond the wall,” he said, adding that the president is ruining the reputations of true “border hawks” such as himself.

    “So many of the things that I believe in, Donald Trump has taken to dark, ugly places,” Walsh said. “Trump’s taken that whole issue of the border and he’s turned it into a kind of, ugly, bigoted, ‘go back to where you came from’ kind of a thing. So, I’m a conservative, and if there’s one area that I’ve changed on in the past couple of years, and it’s because of Trump, I’ve changed my tone.”

    You could be right. It's the independents who always tip the balance.

    Well, being that trump doesn't like the electoral college and if the bill the democrats introduced abolishing the electoral college gets to him to sign, he would sign it, pretty much means he needs to be voted out.
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    Even better, differentiating citizens from land mass:

    One dot = one vote.

    All things will be forgiven once Trump signs the "abolish the EC" legislation.

    he will become Anna's new hero.
