Re: Bernie's popularity, GWB had a 90% popularity rating once too.

Argumentum ad populum is a logical fallacy for a reason.

1. Again I will say the media wants him to be

 

popular so they can use him to cause discord then when they are done with him they will tear him down just like everyone else in the past. HRC 65% approval and looked what they did to her.

15. DU is teeming with a bunch of hypocrites.

I'm not surprised someone alerted. The Bernie sheeple will not tolerate facts or other people's opinions. You would think they might have learned that ignoring other people's opinions leads to an echo chamber where life is peachy, when in reality it is much different.

4. I guess I'm confused

 

I came to DU thinking this was a place to support the left. Seems that is not the case.

Isn't it good that Bernie has high approval? Don't we want that rather than Trump having high approval?

9. Classic what?

 

Awesomeness? Thank you.
Intellectual prowess? Thank you, again.
Something else? I need more explanation I guess.

Seems weird to gang up on a progressive when we have a lunatic in the White House. Especially when said progressive is fighting against said lunatic.

11. I agree with that.

 

But it's going to be hard to please everyone, I would guess. Seems there would need to be some level of "putting up with" (not the best phrase, but all I've got right now) the things you don't agree with in order to fight the bigger enemy.

13. You've Put Your Finger On The Problem

Women are tired of going along to get along, haveing their issues secondized and there is a feeling that is exactly where BS stands. And there are other issues. In addition, there is resentment that he wants to lead a group he says he doesn't want to be a part of and with whom he won't share his lists and people wonder why. Especially now that he and WEaver have set up a 501c/3.

5. What's The Breakdown Of His Popularity

Are we talking subset popularity, like mostly white men filling out the numbers, or is it more equitable

8. What was FDR's approval rating right after Pearl Harbor?

When Bush was getting those ratings the entire U.S. Congress was standing arm in arm on the steps of the Capital singing patriotic songs together. No doubt you have a point to make but that factoid isn't a useful way, IMO, to make it.

19. In W's case it was because of the 9-11 attacks.

Bernie's is just from doing his job well and articulating goals that help people.
