    Trump is Bankrupting his Base.

    The breakeven price for growing soybeans is about $10.00/bushel

    https://farmdocdaily.illinois.edu/20...en-prices.html


    Thanks to the loss of Chinese sales, the price of soybeans as of this date is $8.775/bushel.

    http://www.macrotrends.net/2531/soyb...cal-chart-data

    Do the math. Soybean farmers are getting hammered. Some of them are even figuring out that voting for Trump was a really bad idea.

    Almost 67 percent of the survey participants said they voted for Trump, versus only 24 percent for Hillary Clinton.
    But when all respondents were asked if they would support Trump's reelection, only 45 percent said they would do so, representing an almost 20 percent drop in support from both Trump and Clinton voters.
    ---

    Wow. A 20% drop in support for Trump among farmers. Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa just went solid blue. No wonder the Trump cultists are in such a hysterical meltdown state.

    Hey if the Chinese don't want to purchase our agricultural products they can all just go ahead and starve.

    Can solely purchasing from other nations meet China's demands, or are they going to come crawling back to us "little red books" in hand begging for food?

    Pretty funny post. It doesn’t really make sense. He is bankrupting them. Some have even figured it out.


    If he were bankrupting them them they would all figure it out immediately. So the stupidity of the comments forced me to read his BS.


    I like like how you didn’t post everything only what you wanted to make a fake news point.

    Right after and in the same paragraph continuing it says:

    However, many may be reserving judgement to see how some of his actions play out: Another 18 percent said they did not know how they will vote in 2020.

    "The farmers I talk to are very concerned about trade, and while they are willing to give the President the benefit of the doubt in the hope that his actions will result in better deals, folks are getting pretty nervous," says Blake Hurst, a Tarkio, Missouri, farmer who leads the Missouri Farm Bureau. Plus, Hurst says there may be a delayed reaction on the benefits of the tax cuts. "Unlike wage earners who are seeing an increased paycheck because of lower withholding, farmers won't see the actual benefits of the tax cut until next year, as they prepare for March 1 tax deadline."



    They know something needs to be done and will wait and see. Hoping he can fight this battle and it pays off for them. Thanks for playing nimrod. Nobody is panicked that is supporting him. Now crawl back into your hole. This is a business as usual post for hack democrats.

    Not a problem, they'll blame Obama. Or it's Hillary's fault, lock her up!
    News: Rich people paying rich people to tell middle class people to blame poor people.

    They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

    I try not to think about Bathhouse Barry or Hillary and have noticed I spend less time being depressed.

    Maybe they will follow the lead of the Obama worshipers and blame Bush for the entire Trump term.
