GfK poll shows voter distaste for Putin-style leadership

There are 19 comments on the Brandon Sun story from Sep 25, 2016, titled GfK poll shows voter distaste for Putin-style leadership. In it, Brandon Sun reports that:

But most Americans don't agree with Trump's assessment of Putin's leadership skills, a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows. Only 24 per cent of registered voters say Putin has leadership qualities that would be good for an American president to share, while 71 per cent say he does not.

And Comrade tRump consistently speaks in glowing terms of Putin's leadership style.

Comrade tRump is an admirer and would-be emulator of Putin's increasingly autocratic and illiberal rule.
At a minimum, tRump appears to have a deep financial dependence on Russian money from persons close to Putin.
And this is matched to a conspicuous solicitousness to Russian foreign policy interests where they come into conflict with US policies which go back decades through administrations of both parties. There is also something between a non-trivial and a substantial amount of evidence suggesting Putin-backed financial support for tRump or a non-tacit alliance between the two men.

And yet, the United States is defined by the three way power split:

1. Executive Branch (leadership)
2. Legislative Branch (law makers)
3. Judicial Branch (interpret/uphold law)

We have seen the decline of US sentiment around the world due to insufficient strong leadership here at home.(leading from behind)

No need to panic or be afraid. Trump cannot be a Putin in this country because of our precious Constitution ... and yet having a strong leader who RESPECTS the Constitution (rather than someone who would dilute the Constitution) would be welcome improvement.

The absurd opinions of many are guided solely by US Media depictions of Putin and the Russian form of government. It is noteworthy, that the same people in and out of the current Administration foster these negative appraisals with no evidence whatsoever, while actually funding, arming and supporting the extremist elements in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, that Russia is almost solely standing against with success. The fomenting of war and civilian targeting air strikes became the element forever defining the last years of the Bill Clinton Administration. They do this jingoistic crap every time they are in trouble domestically. Notice the most recent absurd accusations from the Muslim terrorist funder in chief, claiming that Russia represents the highest level of foreign meddling. The US support of neo-Nazi elements in Kiev, Ukraine should put a hole in that logic, as should the targeting, murder and maiming of Syrian troops in Obama's support of ISIS recently. Russia becomes an effective opponent of some of the most vicious people ever on Earth, but Democrats and George Soros fund and arm those monsters out of jealousy and a desire to belay the facts from settling on domestic voter's minds.

The only chance we have of defeating Muslim Terrorist is with the help and cooperation of Russia yet Hillary is insulting and making unsubstantiated claims against Putin and Russia in an effort to distract the American voters. One has to ask why she is afraid of insulting Muslim Terrorists yet she is more than willing to do the same to Russia and its people.
She claims Trump spoke too soon by saying that a bomb that exploded in N.Y. was a bomb yet without evidence she is publicly claiming that Putin and Russia are attempting to manipulate our elections by hacking and releasing emails that prove the DNC was manipulating the Democratic primary.

U.S. intel officials probe ties between Trump adviser and Kremlin

U.S. intelligence officials are seeking to determine whether an American businessman identified by Donald Trump as one of his foreign policy advisers has opened up private communications with senior Russian officials — including talks about the possible lifting of economic sanctions if the Republican nominee becomes president, according to multiple sources who have been briefed on the issue.

What a surprise! The Obama administration is using a government agency to go after a political opponent.
Again top Democrats are making unsubstantiated allegations against the Russian government that will further strain relations with Russia.

"two senior Democrats — Sen. Dianne Feinstein, ranking minority member on the Senate Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Adam Schiff, ranking minority member on the House Intelligence Committee — released a joint statement that went further then what U.S. officials had publicly said about the matter.

“Based on briefings we have received, WE HAVE CONCLUDED that the Russian intelligence agencies are making a serious and concerted effort to influence the U.S. election,” they said.“At the least, this effort is intended to sow doubt about the security of our election and may well be intended to influence the outcomes of the election.” They added that “orders for the Russian intelligence agencies to conduct such actions could come only from very senior levels of the Russian government.”

It seems they are not concerned that the leaders of the DNC were caught red handed illegally influencing the Democratic primary.

Funny how Hillary thought opening trade with Russia was a good thing when she was SS but now it is bad. Flip Flop Flip Flop.

Hillary Clinton: Trade With Russia Is a Win-Win
By making Moscow a normal trading partner, Congress would create American jobs and advance human rights.

Everybody keeps nailing Hillary for having a common cold. Like everybody doesn't get sick sometimes. Is that the only argument you will ever have to combat the Clinton policies she's advocating?
