Trump vs. Obama in poll.


Poll respondents can answer Much Worse, Much Better, Don’t know/Can’t tell, Slightly Better, Slightly Worse or About the same.

So far, two thirds of respondents have voted that Trump is doing Much Worse than Obama.


Voting details follow:

Much Worse: 66%

Much Better: 12%

Don’t know/Can’t tell: 9%

Slightly better: 5%

Slightly worse: 4%

About the same: 4%


Here’s a sample of poll respondents’ comments:

“This man is a disgrace to your country, an example of pretty much everything that’s wrong in this world and should not even be compared to his predecessors. Him and Obama should not even be put in the same category.” –Alba

“…Trump; absolute dregs as a human being. BUT Obama had many flaws too. In fact I’d be grateful if you could remind me of THREE things he enacted to help ALL US citizens. Please don’t say ObamaCare; half measures avail us nothing and ObamaCare when compared to almost every other Western Public Health Care System sucks. Still 30,000,000 Americans with no access to Health Care and around 200,000,000 underinsured.” –BELLAMc.

“Trump can’t be compared to ANY president in history, let alone Obama. He’s unprecedently terrible and incredibly unqualified to be an adult, let alone a president. Anyone who thinks he’s doing better than Obama or even remotely the same needs to have their head examined.” –Marat

“Trump’s concept of public relations is just awful. But I voted “don’t know” because I am not sure what he has actually done, as opposed to tweeted.” –Ian

“This man has so many skeletons in his closet.” –Jason

“…Trump is a shell without a soul. He’s psycho, and a danger to humanity. Period…People can complain about president Obama all they want but he -in my opinion- at least was a progressive president not to mention a real man who didn’t have to have his news filtered because someone didn’t write something nice about him. I think Obama’s a good man…” –Miss

“Was it not Obama that took down Libya and attempted a coup in Egypt, all with a false narrative, a movie no less. Or how about the war in Syria raising up ISIS, training them in order to overthrow a legitimate government. I don’t think it is about who is better as I really think both were hand picked puppets doing the globalists bidding.” –Laurette

“When I talk to his supporters, the main point that they cling to is who he isn’t (Hillary Clinton). Eventually, they will have to judge him for who he is. It just seems to be taking a long time to get to that point.” –Robert

“Asking educated people how they feel about Trump. Haha…” –Brandon

“Being an intuitive, I see their massive egos are almost on a par. For me; repulsive, seriously counter-productive and off balance. Hierarchy produces such characters and we seriously need another option at this stage of the game. I’d like to suggest Democracy as an obvious alternative. It’s been waiting in the wings for a very long time.” –Linda

“Another puppet of corporate world.” –Salman

“No. 45 ( I don’t speak/write his name) is a child in a man’s body. He lacks communication skills, social skills and the list goes on. He is a proud racist! Shall I go on? Everywhere this president goes he leaves a stain, he offends and disrespect the people.” –Seymone

“He does not act with dignity, professionalism or behave like a president. He acts like a spoiled, rich, over-indulged, vulgar child. (And will someone PLEASE take his Twitter account away from him!!!!! The real lesson here is that the American public was willing to elect a vulgar twit because they were SO unhappy with the political arena in our country. That should send a damn message to the powers that be to clean up their act.” –Juli

“All politicians are equally worthless.” –R.S.

“Trump is proof that corporate CEOs make bad leaders…But Trump out trumps all other incompetent CEOs. He inherited all his wealth, lost much of it in multiple bankruptcies, and is well-known in the finance community as a bad risk. How could anyone think he’d be a good president? Add on to that his mental instability, lack of moral sense, and his treasonous behavior, what other answer could you give but “Much Worse.” –Martin

“Barack Obama has a Nobel Peace Prize. Of course it is a travesty. But Trump deserves a war prize. Trump is our most bellicose president since Theodore Roosevelt.” –P.J.

“Donald Trump is horribly unqualified for such an important position. He behaves as though the country should serve him, when his role ought to be serving the people of the nation.” –Jeff

“I am amazed that this man is still your president. Well, this is democracy at its worst. Good luck to you guys. Maybe you know better than I do. God bless.” –Practitioner

Do you believe the world as a whole is overpopulated and therefore at or close to the absolute limit of what it can support? That’s the question we put to our Underground Knowledge group members in our latest poll on


Interim poll results show that 57% of respondents believe planet Earth is not overpopulated, some 37% insist it is, and the balance (6%) are unsure.

Poll respondents’ comments make for interesting reading. Sample abridged comments (names withheld) follow:

I do not believe the world is overpopulated and believe the problem is actually a lack of fair distribution of resources, lack of priority given toward environmentalism and various other issues I’ve outlined in these two discussion threads:…  and…


If you enjoy living in a world with no wild animals, no wild spaces, not open frontiers but enjoy snuggling up in cramped conditions with billions of people like you eating mass produced food and if you do not care that we are facing a massive decline in variety of specis of flora and fauna, the big species extinction wave, then with all those “if”s accepted, the world is not overpopulated for you.


The world is not overpopulated, the problem is such a wretched distribution of food, of wealth, of the basic necessities of life. Much too much is concentrated in the hands of the few, of the horridly corrupt. What if we stopped these insane endless wars and used that money to put in a well, a roof over the heads of families, food on their tables, medical care? Would we not all sleep better?


The world is not Close to the Limit, it has past it.


If the world had past its limit to support life you and every other human being on the planet would already be dead…  


The population of the planet has more than doubled in my lifetime. Clearly this is not sustainable. Already there are many signs of strain, in species extinctions, widespread homelessness and hunger, pollution, climate change, wars over resources, etc. There are other factors involved but overpopulation fuels them all. By any standard the planet is grossly overpopulated now. It is not just a matter of space.


There’s loads of space. That’s not a problem. We could build islands, extend coastlines, utilize currently uninhabitable spaces…We’re not overpopulated but we sure as hell need to sort out our distribution and use of resources.

In our ‘Underground Knowledge’ discussion group on Goodreads we ask: Do you believe the 2000 U.S. Presidential Election in which George W. Bush defeated Al Gore was a fair election or a fraudulent election?

Gore and Bush…on campaign trail.

Almost two thirds of those polled to date believe the election was fraudulent with the balance evenly split between a fair election and undecided.


Here’s a sample of poll responses received (names withheld):


Fraudulent, but wouldn’t have mattered either way. We’d still be in the thick of it in the middle east and would have international banksters/multinational corporations calling the shots.


Fraudulent- definitely. See this concise article for how:… (And, as an aside, here in England, it was a similar state of affairs when Cameron got in -although different tactics used. The Lib Dems won the majority, and they held the power as to whether there was to be a coalition and who with etc. Where are we now? Everyone’s forgotten that. Cameron is the big man P.M, and the Lib Dems will soon be a non-existent party.)


I think it was definitely not a fair eection. there were so many votes un-counted or unaknowledged…after the election, here were so many unanswered questions about what votes were couted and those that were not, and then there is the queston of whether votes were “lost” I think George W. just had more money……


Hanging chads and cutting short aside there were also serious reports of “technical” poll problems in Florida minority neighborhoods. Remember who was the Governor? It just goes to show that if the bastards are to be beaten (assuming a possibly naïve hope that there is a difference between Republicans and Democrats) it has to be by a wide margin. Imagine if the US Treasury had not been depleted by sending vast sums to the middle east in return for no oil.


Don’t think it was a fair election back then, and with Citizens United allowing millions being poured into negative PR against candidates we`have more elections that are not fair. (Historian).


I also believe that you cannot get anywhere near the Presidency position without shaking the right hands (the hands of bankers and military men especially) and kissing the right asses. Therefore… the same or very similar war/corruption scenarios still would have occurred. Gore was possibly the lesser of two evils, but still a complete puppet I’d say. Democrat or Republican, Left or Right, Liberal or Conservative – the global elite have all these so-called different groups or different voting options under their thumbs. However, with all the voting fraud rumors and investigations during and after that election, the suspicious Florida recount(s) at least showed many common citizens that tampering with votes is not only something that occurs in little banana republics of Third World …

Our ‘Underground Knowledge’ discussion group is open to everyone! All you need is an enquiring mind, an interest in the world we live in and a desire to learn or to uncover “underground knowledge” on important issues of our times.

This group is also for like-minded people to discuss the controversial topics explored in The Underground Knowledge series – of which the first book in that series is The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy. This non-fiction title was written by James Morcan & Lance Morcan with a foreword by leading scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha and an afterword by renowned historian Professor Richard Spence.

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy

To visit or join our Underground Knowledge group go to:—a-discussion-group


THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy  delivers a balanced exposé of some of the most important conspiracy theories of our time.

Whistleblowing revelations include corrupt officials, racists, secret society members, warmongers, compromised journalists, economic hitmen, modern-day Doctor Frankensteins and mysterious individuals rumored to have wealth that would dwarf the net worth of Bill Gates and others on Forbes’ so-called Rich Lists.


A book for the common people…the 99%.

This book is written for the lower classes and the homeless, the outcasts and the marginalized, the abused and the victimized, the unpaid and the underpaid, the overworked and the out-of-work, the refugees and the poor, the uneducated and the undereducated, the forgotten and the lonely, the misunderstood and all the other underdogs of society who together, collectively, form the majority – or the 99%, if you will.

As Director of Japan’s Advanced-Science Technology Research Organization, Dr. Takaaki Musha, states in the book’s Foreword, “This book discloses exactly what is happening right now…in the corridors of power, in prime banks and meetings of the global elite.”

Dr. Takaaki Musha…a contributor to The Orphan Conspiracies.

A former senior research scientist at the Technical Research and Development Institute of Japan’s Ministry of Defense, Dr. Musha also describes The Orphan Conspiracies as “The secret history of the 20th Century and the early 21st Century.”

And as Professor of History at the University of Idaho, Dr. Richard Spence, reminds us in the book’s Afterword, “Out there, in the dark, all things are possible.”

Richard B Spence

Dr. Richard Spence…”All things are possible.”

The renowned historian also points out that the multitude of “conspiracy theories” we present in the book is “a prime example that we (humankind) do possess a tremendous capacity for deluding ourselves—and others.”
