President Donald Trump is accused of closing the government, as a new poll shows.
The president's popularity has fallen below 40 percent, while the government has now closed the financing of Trump's southern boundary wall for six days. A survey by Morning Consult, which took place from December 21 to 23, saw the lows of Trump last when he refused to sentence neo-Nazis to the White Nationalist rally in August 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia
Only 39 percent of registered voters endorse the president's work during that closure, while 56 Percent reject this. However, Trump's approval is split into party lines. 80 percent of the Republicans approve of Trump; According to a survey of nearly 2,000 registered voters, 90 percent of Democrats and 57 percent of independents reject its performance. Another poll by HuffPost and YouGov found that only 36 percent of Americans approved Trump's approval to shut down the government.
The Americans disapprove of how Congress overcame the fight for expenditure as a whole; The Republicans, however, see more fallout. According to the HuffPost poll, only 26 percent of Americans agree to deal with the closure of Congress Republicans, compared to 36 percent approval by Democrats.
Trump and Congress remain deadlocked on state funding. About 25 percent of the federal government was closed on Friday evening, including authorities such as the Ministry of Justice, the Interior Ministry and especially the Department of Homeland Security, which controls the construction work on the southern border.
Trump, who had previously said was "proud" to have closed the government because of the financing of the border walls, has since repeated his blame to the Democrats for having demanded $ 5 billion The border wall had rejected border security and a wall on the southern border. We must prevent drugs, trafficking, gang members and criminals from coming to our country. Do the Dems know that the majority of people who are not paid are Democrats?
History shows that the public usually does not have a long hiccup about downtime (this is the third shutdown this year). And due to the lack of negotiations, it is obvious that both Trump and the Democrats are resting on this assumption.
An end to the stalemate is not in sight – and Trump just doubles up.
Legislators, most of whom have gone home on holiday, do not seem to be close to an agreement with Trump. Republican leaders say the Democrats must negotiate with Trump to end the closure. However, Trump has continued to seek advice from conservative hardliners.
He told reporters that workers in the state "understand what's going on. They want the border security. People in this country want security on the border.
But at least one union leader, Tony Reardon, president of the National Treasury Employees Union-one of the largest unions representing government employees-disagrees.
I was dismayed and genuinely angry at the suggestion that they should have no financial concerns about reporting disruptions in their lives, "Reardon told reporters.
Government shutdowns play a role, though they usually do not that seniors renounce their social security checks or the military does not work anymore, but they still affect a large part of the government's functions, and the Office of Management and Budget estimated the closure in 2013, which took 16 days 120,000 fewer jobs and reduced economic growth by 0.2 to 0.6 percent in the last quarter of this year.
But who gets the blame for that? How long is less clear that of then-President Bill Clinton. During the middle of 2013, the Republicans in the Ko ngress was again blamed for it, the approval of President Barack Obama remained relatively unchanged. According to the HuffPost / YouGov poll, Republicans seem to be more guilty than Democrats this time – though both parties have very low approval ratings.
We know that the public does not hold these feelings for long – and it is unlikely that this will have much of an impact on the 2020 election.
When this fight for Trump's border continues, the president must tell the Border Patrol or TSA officers that their payrolls have to wait a little longer.
