2.  the percentage of the U.S. population living in poverty rose<<
The real question is.... out of that percentage... how many of them are susceptible enough to the rhetoric and misrepresentations being so shamelessly displayed on the mind control box to vote for the "person" who is bringing them this wonderful state???




"24.9 percent of American children live in poverty, while the proportions in Germany, France and Italy are 8.6, 7.4 and 10.5 percent. And once born on the wrong side of the tracks, Americans are more likely to stay there than their counterparts in Europe. Those born to better-off families are more likely to stay better off. America is developing an aristocracy of the rich and a serfdom of the poor - the inevitable result of a twenty-year erosion of its social contract."
