A new poll reveals that failed presidential candidate and Utah Senator Mitt Romney is widely disliked by the American people.
The poll conducted by NBC and released on Sunday reveals just how unpopular the old guard Republican really is. Romney is seen as ‘very positively’ by 2% of Americans, and ‘somewhat positively’ by 16%.
As such, only 18% of Americans see the staunch political elitist in a positive light.
The poll surveyed 900 Americans across the country, providing a considerable sample size. It also revealed a 45% approval rating for Donald Trump’s job performance in office, far outpacing Romney’s favorability and running to par with most presidents in recent memory.
Romney’s unpopularity dates back further than his ongoing feud with Donald Trump, that began when the populist businessman became a Presidential candidate. Romney lost the 2012 Presidential election in great part because of his career making millions of dollars from outsourcing American jobs and displacing middle class workers for the benefit of wealthy corporations and shareholders.
Romney has rebranded as a liberal Republican as a U.S. Senator, initially making headways with liberals through frequent denunciations of President Trump. However, it appears his liberal cheerleaders are fair-weather fans, as they’ve been quick to turn on him for voting with other Senate Republicans on judges and other mainstream conservative issues.
Romney has been the only Republican senator to entertain the prospect of impeaching President Trump, although it’s unclear if he’s serious about removing Trump from office or is simply dancing around the notion in order to rake in more liberal applause.
More polling also reveals that Utah citizens may be souring on their junior Senator’s incessant moral preening and infighting.
A Utah Policy poll shows that a majority of the state’s residents disapprove of Romney’s job performance. Romney won’t be up for re-election until 2024, but it probably couldn’t hurt for the freshman senator to focus on policy that will benefit his constituents as opposed to endless, repetitive feuds.
President Donald Trump Urges House Republicans to Vote Against Re-Authorizing FISA Secret Courts
Trump has learned the right lesson from the Russian collusion madness.
President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.
He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.
I hope all Republican House Members vote NO on FISA until such time as our Country is able to determine how and why the greatest political, criminal, and subversive scandal in USA history took place!

The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.
The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…
Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.
Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”
“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.
“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.
President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.
“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.
The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.
