Quick Post I felt you all needed to see. President Danilo averages 83% positive approval rating. When’s the last time you’ve seen such an overwhelming positive approval rating for an elected official? I thought so… you haven’t. In recent history the best that’s ever been isn’t much over half that number. Still I bet you wish your nation’s President had such popularity with the people of the nation and in a POSITIVE aspect. Sure other nations numbers are close except for one crucial point their NEGATIVE ratings not positive approval!!! Right now America’s running a close race with near equal numbers but for disapproval ratings of their elected officials. Almost all of Europe shares the same percentages or near same but again for disapproval! Their all running around the 80% range of disapproval within the latest Gallup poles. I feel this is an important fact to share. What’s your take on this latest polling news?
Just a few short months ago I had the sincere pleasure of meeting Danilo and being with him for several minutes. I really do admire his guts to stand up for his people and face the largest of foes with courage. Whether it’s a mega corporation like Barack Gold or another country’s elected officials bad mouthing this nation or it’s people he deals with is straight up… no BS! After I met Danilo I walked away with a feeling of sincere caring and felt comfortable inside knowing that this President is real and stands for the people he was elected to represent. Once again proving it’s not the size of the man but the fight in his heart.
So let me ask you can you say the same for your elected officials? Most folks I talk with mention that they feel sick to their stomachs after just listening to them let alone actually meeting them. From what my take is after chatting with so many good folks is the following. I fear most would actually be making sea pizzas (throwing up) if they ever came within ten feet of almost any elected official (excluding Ron P) that’s currently representing your nations so called best interests. please don’t shoot the messenger as It’s all coming from you good folks talking with me. I copied the short article from the DR1 daily news one of the countries English E-NEWS web sites. Oh Yea the nations tourism numbers are running up about 10% over same time last year. In this economic nightmare that’s no small statement since last year was darn good.
Please consider the following thought when the article mentions over 900 protests nation wide took place in 2013 . In America you’ve been somewhat brainwashed to view this a a negative thing. In actuality its most positive WHY? Because it’s the PEOPLE BANDING TOGETHER.
Banding together and standing up for what in their minds is best for the people and not some elected officials. Perhaps… just perhaps if the people of the western nations did a bit more standing up for themselves and actually protested against tyranny you the informed wouldn’t be wondering as much… wondering why you feel you’ve lost your nation most of your rights and just about all of your freedoms. Just something you might want to ponder a bit should you decide to relocate to another country… any other country. Until next time this is Barry in DR.
Popularity high for President Medina

“The latest Gallup-Hoy poll, conducted from 24-28 January with 1,200 people polled reveals that President Danilo Medina is the highest rated Dominican President since these polls started. A year and a half into his first term of government, 82% of respondents spoke highly of Medina’s performance.
People trust Medina. The poll says that on average 84.7% of those polled trust the President. This includes a high of 92% in his home region of the southwest and a low of 85.5% in Greater Santo Domingo, with the largest population concentration.
The President enjoys this high level of popularity despite complaints about the tough economic situation, the increasing prices of basic products and the fact that there were more than 900 protests nationwide in 2013, most calling for improvements in public services. President Medina introduced strong economic measures to tackle the RD$187 billion financial deficit inherited from his predecessor, Leonel Fernandez. ”
