Gallup Shows How Much Americans Really Care About The “Situation With Russia”

Do you LOVE America?


    This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

    While ever-hope-filled expectations among the left are for a ‘blue wave’ in the Mid-term elections, we suspect things may not turn out quite as planned given the last week’s “crisis”. Even before President Trump had set foot in Helsinki, the left and the media were banging the drums of war against “the thug” Putin and how he would trump Trump, and once the press conference furor was over, all hell broke loose as the left-leaning world attempted to out-signal one another’s virtue as to the “treasonous”, “surrender” that had occurred.

    So much so – in fact – that the internet became ‘full’ of “Trump” and “Treason” chatter – more so even than when he joked in July 2016 about Russia having Hillary’s missing 30,000 emails.

    Once again – the “Russia, Russia, Russia” cries drowned out any sane discussion of the end of cold war 2.0.

    There’s just one problem with the Democrats’ unending focus on Russia and the media’s constant collusion chatter: few Americans care, because – drumroll – they have real lives in the real economy to worry about.

    As the latest survey from Gallup shows: when asked what the most important problem facing the nation is, Russia did not even warrant a 1% – and worse still, it is declining in importance from there.

    Source: Gallup

    As David Sirota noted“Gallup recently did a poll of what Americans say is the most important problem facing the country. One finding: the percentage of Americans saying “Situation with Russia” is the most important problem is literally too small to represent with a number. “

    So with all that energy expended on pinning the Russia collusion tail on Trump’s campaign donkey, let alone former FBI Director Comey’s insistence that ‘anyone voting Republican is anti-American’, we are reminded of the blinkered view of the world so many suffer from and what Steve Bannon said yesterday at CNBC’s “Delivering Alpha” conference: The Democrats abandoned the American worker.

    The meddling was on the margin, and the Democrats need to accept this. The collusion – they haven’t found one shred of evidence.

    The Democrats have yet to embrace why they lost[they] have wanted a do-over since 2:30 am on Nov. 9 – and they’ve lied and they’ve bitched and in November they’ll get their do-over…but on November 6, the deplorables will be plenty jacked up.

    But in November, voters will render their decision, and whatever they decide it’ll be on Trump’s platform of economic nationalism, which has boosted economic growth and created jobs.

    “It’s an up or down vote, the economy, the tax cuts the whole package. I think the Fed’s going to say in the second quarter it’s at 4%…because of economic nationalism.”

    So, will The Left find policies to run on that are not “socialism”? and are not “not Trump”?

      1. Americans largely care about food and circus and little more. Some identity politics encompasses gays, blacks and the like but for the most part they couldn’t care less about Russia or find it on a map. If told that Stalin was from Georgia they wouldn’t know who he was, what he did and would think Atlanta Braves.

        Several of us disagree on this BB but we’re far ahead of the common person who is too ignorant to even attempt to hold conversations like this with. How people can go through life with so much information around them and know so little defies logic.

        • 7000 people put in to draw 1 of 22 tags to hunt a Grizzly in Wyoming, and of those 7000 people 2000 are Anti-Hunters. Why would anyone want to hunt a Grizzly? Because there’s no open season on Liberals! So sad. Trekker Out

        • Kevin2, they’ve all been indoctrinated by the public schools, govt., MSM etc. No critical thinking skills. They don’t know how to even make decisions for themselves. They accept whatever they’re told hook, line, and sinker without ever questioning anything. I’d rather be dead than to live like that.

          • The Deplorable Braveheart

            I think the top reason is intellectual laziness. They care about what effects them right now. The likelihood of WWIII next year or the big game this weekend; no doubt what gets their attention. I test people that I meet in a social setting that might develop into conversation above the superficial. Mention any of the following, fiat currency, oil peg, reserve currency and see if you get a coherent reply or a blank stare. Most people aren’t worth talking to for more than the weather or food.

            They vote, they reproduce.

            • Kevin2, I have to agree. You sound more like me. I’ve also tested people I’ve met in social settings and get the same results. The only times I find people that are really worth talking to are on this blog, my family when I’m at the BOL, or people at the gun shows. The rest of the time I just avoid people all I can. There’s nothing but air between their ears, LOL.

            • I thought I was the only one who did tests in conversations.

              Around here in Northern Virginia, most people aren’t even good on the weather. They can, however, extol the virtues of great restaurants which I cannot do since I prefer my own cooking. (I like cooking even over a campfire.)

        • Obama met Putin, it’s all good.
          Obama told Medvdev, Tell Vlad, when I get re-elected, I’ll have more latitude to deal with nuclear weapons, no mention that it was a very real act of TREASON.

          Hillary met Putin, even said she wanted “a strong Russia”, no mention of TREASON.

          Bill Clinton met Putin, to suck up ,get a photo-op, and launder some money, no conflict of interest, etc.

          Shumer met with Putin, all smiles, no wrong-doing here.

          The Bushes met with Putin, and of course, it was just “respectful”.

          Trump met Putin, and it becomes the treasonous end of the world…

          Nothing like hypocrisy…




          • Read the linked article. That sounds like a really sick school. Glad the guy graduated and left them behind.

        • Should I join Sons of the American Revolution?

          Their website says they are open to people of all races colors creeds illegitimate births non americans etc. Sounds like it was infiltrated by the Saturday People.


          • I thought the article was about that group preserving history. Did I miss something as I scanned through it?

        • What really Pisses me off are all these Traitors still on the Government dole collecting paychecks. Mueller to Schummer. All a bunch of planted shill traitors. Hang every one of these lefties.

          Factoid: 9% of US Congress Reps are Dual Citizens with no allegence or loyalty to America. WTF? No dual citizen should hold any Govnt offices or positions. Thats why our foreign policy does not benefit Americans. Its a costly disaster. Trump is bringing this up in their faces. Trump: “We spend a lot of money protecting Germany from Rusdia and then Germany goes behind our back and is buying Billions in oil and energy from Russia.” damn right and why we need to pull out of Germany amd let them defend themselves. Close all US Bases in Germany. F-em!!

      2. Don’t hear much about a “blue wave” lately.

        • southside, that blue wave supposedly petered out at some point.

      3. We’re doomed!! no mention at all about catastrophic climate change (“Hell and High water”)…

        These are my main concerns:

        1)I’m VERY worried about an economic meltdown, though I try not to think about it as I try to undo personal tangles in my life. 🙁

        2)Catastrophic climate chaos due to the melting of arctic ice and the subsequent release of 50 G. of methane that will ensue, destroying the ability of crops to adapt in time to the abrupt rise in global temperatures (STARVATION).

        3)Nuclear War. This is worst of all but I don’t really think about it much as there is very little we can do about it…either it happens or it doesn’t. (This is why I voted for trump even though I can’t stand the guy!)

      4. No numbers after the Trump-Putin meeting. Most people are too busy or too broke to pay attention but they know much is rotten out of D.C., they know their standard of living has declined and they know the deck is stacked against them overall just like in a casino. Sort of like the blind leading the blind. Throw it against the wall and see what sticks, a sticky situation.

      5. President Trump and Putin met in HELLsinki FINland for a Summit meeting. BEWARE! Do NOT trust these stories of “Peace and Safety” because sudden destruction may be on the way! For example, take a look at this Israeli News Live video. I was wondering what the NWO and their puppets Trump and Putin and this whole “Russian Vote Tampering” news story is all about. They want to roll out a “Global REAL ID Card” – a NWO Identification Card. The deadline is 2020.

        • Anything coming out of Israehell is lies. Anything from the US MSM is lies. Why even watch it of fill your head with lies. If you took a poll most Americans would think IRAQ and Saddam Hussein attacked America on 9-11. Americans IQ is that low as they have no focus on reality.

          The MIC mafia needs a big boogieman like Russia to justify $700 Billion Budgets for war toys. Time to slash defense budgets in half, then half again. Bring the 30,000 Troops in Germany home. Big waste of money. Dissolve NATO, and the UN, its all a Fraud.

          I like Russia. They are White people just like us. We need to join together to fight the Darkies and Z-I-O-N-I-S-T-S. The real Enemy of America and who also owns the lying MSM. Know who the real enemy is and call them out for their evil and lies. Thats Patriotic. MAGA!!

      6. Make it “reality” tv… 99%

      7. I care about Russia. But I don’t give any credence to the Russia interference story when I know perfectly well that the interference in American government comes from Televive, NY, Las Vegas, and the underground City of London, Switzerland, and perhaps from that big crime boss in Russia who just happens to be a (((rhymes with ‘crew’))). Just like Putin said.


      8. The biggest joke is that Blue Mad Maxine is stupid enough to think that one of us would waste a bullet on her ignorant ass.

        She’s already in a coma. She so wants to be a martyr for Satan.

      9. Russia meddles in politics all over the planet…has for years. so does the US and any other country out there. No Trump collusion with Russia,no evidence,none. The public in general knows it and ignores the news. Its all about getting rid of Trump. It ain’t happening,the air is out of that balloon.

        • Yep, B of CA is correct. Kick AIPAC out of the US. They blackmail 30% of Congress elected officials. Its that bad, and AIPAC gets a pass not having to register as a foreign agent who meddling in US politics and our elections. That is treason. And you sure dont hear about that fact in the MSM news do ya, or even here on SHTF-Plan. Mac nerds to write an article on How Israehell hijacked America. That is Treason to allow foreign agents using fake dual citizen passports to work in our Government to undermine it. Its time for the US to void out ALL Dual citizen passports and force then to leave our soil. They are enemies to the US Constitution and our security.

          • I have an Idea. Load up all the Israeli Dual Citizens up on a cruise ship. Then once it is out to sea, attack it with Military aircraft and blow it up. Just like Israehell did to the USS Liberty. Paybacks a 3ew.

      10. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Just need to get rid of that pesky “freedom”.

      11. Does anybody care that mooselims are MORE dangerous than
        any Russians? Afterall, they have wormed their way into every
        facit of our government. But CRICKETS ABOUT THEM.

        Example of International crime…with-held from public.
        the assassination attempts Oct, 1, 2017 at the Tropicana of Prince
        Salmon….by ISIS (hired by the Prince Alwaleed…Mandalay Bay Co-Owner) still not
        not made public by FBI..CIA..HSA… or police…or .news media???
        The fact that there were numerous shooters killing people….(by ISIS) That
        Paddock was the FIRST VICTIM SHOT. That victums reported shooting
        on the Country Music crowd from the roof top and helicopters shooting down
        on them. The helipad on Mandalay Bay was the escape route for
        Paddocks killers….through secret back stairway to roof ….
        ..and security and police waited until “they” staged the crime scene before they entered
        so as to frame Paddock to fit their narrative, “Paddock was the ONLY SHOOTER””…
        “lie” they were going to SPIN for the public.

        Remember the Demoncrap motto??
        ” Never let a disaster go to waste.”

        The FBI, and POLICE were already there BEFORE THE FIRST SHOT
        was FIRED….as there were shots fired at the Tropicana….and Casino
        customers were hiding there while police and FBI lined
        up on the street near the Tropicana, just as the first shots were fired…
        at the Mandalay Bay to snuff out Paddock….(by ISIS, CIA, FBI, Security, or
        Police) ???
        Why were they there??? Who set this up?

        I smell a Clintonwitch and Obumhole trying to help get
        Prince Salmon snuffed out.
        Prince Alwaleed was thick with globalists Obumhole, Clintnwich.
        They were partners in crime….with deep pockets….billionaire
        Alwaleed…..who is now in royal prison for corruption. ….along with
        others who were criminals.
        “They” executed a coverup….””GUN CONTROL”.
        for the ring leaders of “FAST AND FURIOUS FAME””
        Paddock was the patsy.

        Is this the “investigation ” the CIA, FBI and DOJ, is covering up, obstructing,
        with the TRUMP INVESTIGATION??

        Clintnwich and Obumhole, owe Alwaleed favors big time!!! Could this fiasco
        be payback??? Or corroboration by all three.

        This is how they cover up crap. Denial…lie…blame… lie…
        until it is old news and forgotten by gullible,
        narrow minded public.

      12. Remember the good ol days when one candidate won and the other conceded ?
        Back before the endless mudslinging?
        Maybe Putin is right … Maybe it’s easier to just have em whacked..

      13. Just can’t understand why Trump lets these damn commies get away with the crap they are pulling.Doesn’t he understand the power he has to put a stop to a lot of it? Brannan should be locked up in GITMO with some of his Mus-Slime buds where they could play “hide the sausage” with him.

        • I think Trump is just giving them enough rope…

      14. Face the facts. The media, the jounalists, and Congress have their priorities as wealthy globalists and satanist technocrats AND the average Joe is trying to survive due to massive inflation for the last forty years.

        Fix the economy and most of the other issues go away.

        People want to easily have $2,000 in savings, accumulate 100,000 in assets that are fairly liquid, and pay off the mortgage, and maintain property.

        They want a summer vacation worth $2,000 every other year and food security so that they can take their family out to dinner twice a month and take their sweet wife out to the movies or dancing twice a month.

        They want to provide a college education for their kids IF there is a reasonable chance to recoup this with a decent job and benefits.

        They want to ensure their kids have at least one set of formal clothes for an event and decent clothes for church on Wednesday and Sunday.

        Fix that.

        We’ll know more after the mid-term elections. Stay tuned and keep your powder dry!

      17. The Russians are the only nation welcoming the white Refugees from south Africa. Its pretty bad when the Russians have now become the good guys. Talk is cheap. Pay attention to what they actually do. Actions speak louder than words.

        • Old Guy

          Certainly the world has turned upside down. Catholic Church overtly pro gay, Russia has a Christian revival. The self described “party of peace” democrats have become rainbow flagged (or fagged) hawks. There was a movie with Christopher Walker titled “Blast From The Past”. Using that as a format I think it would be interesting to awaken a non aged coma patient from 1958 and see their interaction with the modern world. I can just hear it, “Take me back, Take me back, Take me back”.

        • September 24, 1863, the squadron of Lesovsky entered the raid of New York, and three days later the squadron of Popov arrived to San Francisco. This was the first friendly visit of the Russian Navy warships to the United States. The Russian fleet, in the event of war with Great Britain and France, was to guard the coast of the United States against a possible enemy attack, prevent the landing of an assault, and strike at its distant communications and colonies. In the case of the landing of Anglo-French troops, the victory of the South would have been sealed. And, most likely, America would have been returned to the colonial state, at best it would have become a British protectorate.

          Thus, it was the Russian fleet that was the decisive factor that tipped the scales in the direction of the victory of the northerners and the preservation of US sovereignty and independence.

      18. There is no Russian situation.

      19. Reminds me of that movie from long time back (1966) called, “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming.”

      20. The real enemy to America are Democrats, Communists, Socialists, and Bigots. And the bigots come in all colors.

        America is NOT a democracy. It is a republic. Just to be a Democrat today is treasonous. Why? Because to claim a love for democracy is bad enough, buy in fact the DNC harbors avowed communists and agitators and pinkos, as well as misguided socialists and morons, as well as anarchists who want the system to fall apart.

        To be a globalist means you want to violate American sovereignity and therefore you are a TRAITOR.

        I do not see anything in the Bible that allows bigotry. I do see the bible condemning evil immoral behavior over and over and the party most indicative of systemic malevolance is the DNC that historically was full of avowed BIGOTS and then maintained barbarous bigoted EUGENICS through Abortion advocacy.
