According to Gallup, Three States Where Trump’s Approval Rating is 20% Higher than His Disapproval, What are they Smoking? Where Could I get Some?

in Uncategorized by

According to Gallup polling, North Dakota, West Virginia and Wyoming are the only three states with Trump approval rating 20% higher than his disapproval.

Trump promised his voters the sun and the moon. Trump promised each, their most coveted dreams. In these three states, people wanted to close the borders, to kick out all immigrants, and to make English the only language in America.

Perhaps the more hopeful one is, the longer the hopefulness subsidies. Trump targeted the most desolate and poverty stricken regions of the country. People in these regions were uneducated and tragically desperate, the easiest demographics to fool. These people, in fact, WANTED to be fooled. I’d rather be hopeful for a week out of a year, than a year of lonesomeness.

North Dakota, West Virginia and Wyoming are three states with the highest Trump approval ratings right now, according to Gallup. During the election, Trump captured more than 60% of the vote in each state.

Highest Trump Approval Rates

  1. West Virginia – 60%
  2. North Dakota – 59%
  3. South Dakota  – 57%
  4. Montana –  56%
  5. Wyoming – 56% Gallup article

Other similarities between these three states are more alarming, and perhaps more indicative of why they are so enamored with a president who ran on kicking out religions and ethnic races from our country. The three states are 84% white. NBCNews article

After such a brutal week, nothing boosts Trump’s ego more than a large rally in West Virginia. They love him there. Trump walks across the Potomac River. As a result, Trump planned one for next week. Ironically, Trump’s most loyal state is also the state with the highest number of drug overdoses PewTrusts article.

Why would a state of drug addicts support a president who depletes funding for drug addiction? Sadly, the answer is more of the same Trump deception.

Months into Trump’s presidency, though, Canterbury and a host of other opioid advocates in New Hampshire feel duped by the President, not only shocked that his administration has done little to combat an issue he promised to address, but worried that he has done the opposite and is now risking gains advocates have worked hard to make.

“I expected him to do something,” Canterbury said. “I didn’t expect it to be fixed, but I expected something.” CNN article

But why does West Virginia, still overwhelmingly support Trump after his proposed budget shows Trump was lying. Trump’s budget proposal, would reduce funding for addiction treatment and prevention. The budget also will shrink Medicaid, which provides coverage to three in ten opioid addicts. Why would anyone still support someone who had backed on previous promises? All I can say is a lack of education.

Wyoming is the number one state in terms of coal production. When Trump axed a federal coal leasing moratorium and ordered a review of greenhouse gas regulations, many Wyoming workers who depend on fossil fuels for their livelihood were ecstatic.

All that climate change noise and all of those “environmental” quacks had really put a damper on Wyoming. Years of layoffs and corporate bankruptcies had convinced Wyoming that the future was bleak. But then came Trump. Now they are optimistic that jobs and a better economy will soon return. ABCNews article

“It’s not all rosy right now. But anytime you can see the future and know that the United States, you know, is working with you rather than against you, that alone is nice,” Gillette Mayor Louise Carter-King said. She predicts the community will “come out of this bigger and better than ever” thanks to clean-coal technology and overseas exports.  USNews article

Lastly, North Dakota is a staunchly Republican state. Republicans hold a supermajority in the Legislature and all but one statewide office in North Dakota.

State Republican Party Chairman Kelly Armstrong, a state senator from Dickinson, said the rollback of federal regulations is keeping Trump popular in the oil, coal and agriculture industries. He emphasized though that failure to kill Obamacare will hurt him in the state.

The bait for them North Dakotians was the Dakota Pipeline. Hook, pipeline, and sinker! Trump won 80% of the vote in North Dakota on his promise to get that pipeline going.

It has been a rocky road with that pipeline. After the US Army Corps of Engineers approved it, the Obama administration blocked it. Meanwhile, environmentalists were saying how bad fracking is. According to the fracking contaminates drinking water and causes cancer.

But to the unemployed North Dakotian, fracking means work. That pipeline would employ a lot of people. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook even said of the subject, that “these are good jobs where people with a high school diploma can make $100,000 a year.” DailyCaller article

Another interesting point is that in these three states, Trump is much more popular than Republicans. Another similarity between these three states is that Trump fooled all of them. Republicans did not. Trump did. Don’t assume that just because citizens of these states have been hypnotized by Trump, that they will blindly march to the right. But Trump is a Republican. When all of Trump’s promises are broken, Republicans will have a near impossible wound to heal.

Trump has already massacred that old and feeble Republican elephant.

  1. I’ve actually lived in two of those states, Wyoming and North Dakota. Both are isolated enough from the world and international issues that sometimes it seems as if time has stood still for many decades there. So they see the world a little differently there.

  2. They are smoking the racist pipe. If you do not know yet, the reason by which so many people -including plenty so called evangelicals- chose the chubby Trump for president, was that they thought he would be able to obliterate all non-white people from the US soil. They don’t mind anything; except their stupids racial prejudices. We have millions of racists living among us and infiltrated everywhere: FBI, cops, mayors, judges, politics, hospitals, churches, any place, and right now, also they are on the White House. The chubby Donald bet for the racist side, and he won. Perhaps unbeknown it, or maybe deliberately, I can’t be sure, I’m not able to go deep into the mind of this so unhinged guy, the chubby Donald just wanted to shake up the snakes nest in his efforts to get elected. But be on purpose or not, he did it, and now these vermin are spreading through the nation as an epidemic malady. The blacks Americans have been suffering a centennial martyrdom due to racial prejudices, but now, we all are living one of the most perilous times in the modern US history. Since the Donald’s emergence in the US political arena, the lowest and most disturbing Americans racial prejudices has been swarming out through the nation as an unstoppable expansive wave. Just wait a while ’till they can’t be able to get so many people to be deported through their present methods. All us, like it or not, believe it or not, must be ready to cope with it. Including those naive, blacks and hispanics, who stood up for Trump. Also including every and each other minorities groups of those who have usually been discriminated: hispanics, gays, Muslims, other religious groups, you name it. All efforts that Obama made to get an inclusive country have been lost, who knows for how long. Thus, it’s time to wake up and put the feet on the ground. These vermin are like a medieval barbarians. Unbeknownst, we have been living for a long time among a lot of people who hate us. That’s a fretting discovering. The worst is that henceforth the law and order agencies will be chiefly on the hands of white supremacists. Don’t lose your faith, To survive in Trump’s land just be extremely careful with anything you do, and go warily to any place you move. We must be all the time on guard to fend off them. Even when I recognize that not all whites are racists, since is quite difficult to tell apart each other, hereafter the best we can do is to keep all of them aloof until, as far as possible, we could be able to know what they are thinking about. Please, don’t bite the lure of the honky-racists. You can’t fight fire with fire. Inasmuch violence begets violence, and the submission perpetuate bigotry and the racial discrimination; our struggle should be bring to pass through the pacific protests and civil non-compliance which have shown to be the most effective weapons against bigotry and racism. The racism is wrong, no matter who harasses or who’s the victim. The racists are people who suffer of such abysmal brain retardment where, intolerance, the skin color prejudices and superiority complexes, obliterate any kind of common sense and humanness. Perhaps, a good psychiatrist can be helpful to them, but meanwhile we have to take some precautions. Both, religion and science, agree that we all proceed from a common stock, different explaining ways, but same conclusion. Hence, we must start to be more inclusive. Now is our bounden duty to set aside our differences and go ahead as a united strong community. The problem maybe it’s not Trump, but his followers. All that we have achieved along the time trying to get over the racism pestilence, it’s at stake right now. After years of apparent racial peace, now we have Trump and his followers, and frankly my buddy, inasmuch the American greatness rely on its diversity, it will take a pretty long time to be recovered after Trump.

  3. North Dakota is too close to Canada to give a shit.
    Wyoming needs those guns to shoot those bears that wanna go to school.
    West Virginia is still waiting for the coal mine to open back up.
    And to think only 17% of the population voted for this ass wipe.

  4. West Virginia is further distinguished by having the highest rate of drug overdose deaths in the country. I can’t understand why dumpster isn’t sending ‘the feds’ in to rectify this. One reason for the epidemic there is no jobs.

  5. They have been like that for decades. When I was a kid, I would spend 3 weeks of every year, for about a decade, in rural Wyoming. I’ll never forget the cowboy I met back then. In almost every metric, he was a great guy, salt of the earth. But, he let everyone know that he hated them damn n*gg*rs. The thing was, I don’t think there was a black person within 100 miles of him. Best to remember that the America everyone loves was built on slavery and genocide,

  6. I am from ND and we are not all trump supporters, sadly this is a republican state. I don’t think half of them don’t even pay attention to who is running. If it says republican they vote. They just voted in a republican governor and the first thing he did was allow carry and conceal for EVERYONE. This is the shit we deal with………………………

  7. Ther WAITING FOR JOBS. HARD WORKING PEOPLE WHO ONLY WANT TO HAVE JOBS FEED THEIR FAMILIES. PRAYERS. NOT ANGER OR DEGRADATION. THAU HOW WE GOT HERE. VOTING EMOTIONALLY .OUT OF FEAR +HOPE. LOST LOOKING FOR TRUTHS GETTING LIES.

  8. I have lived and worked in WV my entire life. I have 30 years at my job and need about 5 more. I hope to make it but it’s becoming more unbearable by the day. People love tRump here he has a cult like following. It is almost like Hitler’s Germany. I don’t think there is anything this man can say or do to hurt his image here. I have never been more ashamed of my state than I am now. I used to feel the state was unfairly ridiculed by the national media but not anymore. West Virginia is well on its way to proving all those stereotypes were correct. And I for one, can’t wait to leave and not return.

  9. Because, for them it isn’t about issues or policies. It is about entertainment and the feeling they are a part of it. It is like having a ringside seat to WWE, The Apprentice, Honey Booboo and The Real Wives of…all rolled into one. It makes their dull lives more interesting and they defend it like a cult.

  10. They graduated high school with the equivalence of an eighth grade education and were given adult hats and sent off to the real world… thats when the church plucks them and finish off the brain washing

    • you know that about the evangelic church is really true. They begin with 5 years old sunday school teaching them about THE BIBLE and taka all that is in it is reality. Well if you believe stories not to trace going back 3000 years that’q the beginning of the end.

  11. Wyoming is most likely getting theirs from Colorado. 😀 Don’t spend much time worrying about the folks out there. Wyoming and North Dakota have about 200 people between them—-(I know that isn’t a true statistic, I am just presenting it as an ALTERNATE fact. LMAO)

  12. Tammy Green Wright — Keep in mind that one of the new points of attack against the Progressive Movement is the attack on higher education. I’m sure you’ve seen postings on various Facebook sites. It is the above states where that insanity will find its most fertile ground, along with the deep South. I’ve created a MEME to help organize and motivate the Resistance. Please share broadly.

  13. Listen…I do not like Trump, did not vote for him…but most..who remain in the Dem party (i am in a progressive 3rd party) have left the Dem party due to its corruption and lack of concern ,to put it mildly, for the middle class/working class who are suffering unemployment foreclosure no health insurance and to put it mildly anxiety and depression
