These Tickets Are Way Easier to Get Than You Thought

posted by Jim Curtis - 

With just a few days left until President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, there's one group of people who are having an especially tough time - ticket scalpers! Those desperate to sell the remainder of their inauguration tickets are apparently having no luck. One example is Yossi Rosenberg, a 36-year-old Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton, who got his hands on a pair for $700 thinking he could easily sell them for double the price. Now he says, "Nobody wants to buy them. It looks like I'm stuck with them, I might even have to go." Rosenberg says he even stooped to advertising the tickets on white supremacist websites but still got no takers. There could be two factors at work. First - the inauguration is to be met with mass protests, including the Women's March on Washington on Jan. 21, which is expected to be one of the largest protests ever in the history of the United States. Also, Trump's approval ratings at this point aren't exactly stellar. A few days before his inauguration, George W. Bush's approval ratings were at 61%. President Obama's were at 83%. Trump currently stands at 44% according to the latest Gallup poll. (New York Daily News)
