  • Trump approval rating

    Posted by btomba_77 on November 21, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    I figure we’ll be talking about it soon enough.  Whoever won the election was likely to come in with the lowest approval rating ever for a new President.  Given the popular/EV split Trump will start pretty darned low.  

    I also figure that his honeymoon period will be shorter than most prior Presidents.
    On the up side, he does have the benefit of low expectations, so if GDP is moderate, he doesn’t make awful stumbles, and we don’t have a black swan event he might have some fair up side.

    But …. he’s certainly getting a post-election bump

    [url=http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/donald-trump-popular-poll-231694]Poll: Trump’s popularity soars after election[/url]

    Forty-six percent of voters now have a very favorable or somewhat favorable opinion of the president-elect. Twelve percent have a somewhat unfavorable opinion and 34 percent have a very unfavorable opinion of him.

    Its a dramatic uptick since the election. Trumps favorability has grown 9 points, 37 percent to 46 percent, compared to a Morning Consult poll right before the election — while his unfavorability has dropped 15 points, from 61 percent to 46 percent.

    “Trumps favorability among voters has reached new highs since he became president-elect, said Morning Consult cofounder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. “This honeymoon phase is common for new presidents. For example, Obama saw about a 20 point swing in his favor following the 2008 election.”

    Gallup doesn’t seem to be tracking Trump yet.  I’ll post back if I find it.

      Will be interesting.
       
      Another excuse to beat the press like he just did for CNN & NBC for not being cheerleaders. We need more American Pravdas. Wait, forgot we already have Fox, we just need more. All of them.

        Trump will show just how incompetent and anti-American the previous admins have been. The thing was, you guys got so used to it you just assumed because everyone was so incompetent and careless it couldn’t change. It’s gonna change in a big way. A very pro-American one.

          Interesting. All the previous Administrations have been “anti-American” and Trump is the first ever really real American Administration.
           
          Even George Washington is suspect. We already know Lincoln deliberately started the Civil War just in order to incorporate and concentrate Federal Executive power so we know he was not American.

            PPP’s newest national poll finds Donald Trump’s approval rating falling to its lowest level yet in our polling. Only 40% of voters approve of the job he’s doing, to 53% who disapprove.

            Within the GOP though it looks like Ryan is taking the bigger hit.

    Former Heritage Foundation guy and Bush inaugural writer Michael Gerson: [url=https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/trumps-failing-presidency-has-the-gop-in-a-free-fall/2017/03/30/e0882d62-1581-11e7-ada0-1489b735b3a3_story.html?utm_term=.c31bc445ca59]Trumps failing presidency has the GOP in a free fall [/url]

    This is a pretty bad combination: empty, easily distracted, vindictive, shallow, impatient, incompetent and morally small. This is not the profile of a governing party.

    It is now dawning on Republicans what they have done to themselves. They thought they could somehow get away with Trump. That he could be contained. That the adults could provide guidance. That the economy might come to the rescue. That the damage could be limited.

    Instead, they are seeing a downward spiral of incompetence and public contempt a collapse that is yet to reach a floor. A presidency is failing. A party unable to govern is becoming unfit to govern. ..And what, in the short term, can be done about it? Nothing. Nothing at all.

      Most corrupt administration I’ve ever seen

      Quite possibly most corrupt ever after all is said and done

      Trump Also took the credibility of any moral high ground that the religious right and evangelicals tried to claim effectively castrated them in the future as a political force

        I’m trying to remember where I heard this but it was something along the lines of if Trump said ‘North Korea launched a missile that landed within 50 miles of Hawaii, would you believe him?’.  
         
        That’s the problem when you have a person with ever diminishing credibility, and is more or less lying all the time.

            I know it’s hard for you being such a staunch trump supporter but…. this Russian stuff is pure bad

            They are effectively destabilizing Europe and the US through media manipulation

            It’s an incredible strategy and we are dumb enough as a country to let it happen

            This is what happens when facts don’t matter…. you get a fake president who is essentially selling the country out

            But again what do you expect

            3 marriages

            Cheated on all 3

            Kids to 3 different women

            Multiple bankruptcies

            Multiple draft deferments despite criticism of those who served

              It’s everything about this Administration that screams amateur hour and incompetence. Where is our Secretary of State? His own department’s diplomats don’t know & are worried; Steve Bannon wants to burn down the world & is looking for a match; The Rump family making the Kardashians look really good by comparison; Reince who?; someone in charge of Justice who knows what they’re doing & is not tainted by corruption themselves?; someone in charge of EPA who is competent & not in bed with energy industry?; Speaking of Energy, who is in charge of the Department of Energy? Oh yeah, the guy who thought he was going to get felted by energy industry but instead is in charge of nuclear. Who feels safe with THAT guy in charge? Flynn begging to talk & only asking for immunity! Our POTUS actually under FBI investigation for colluding with the Russians against the national interest! (& you were upset about Hillary’s email!)
               
              A major spokesperson defending Trump’s numerous falsies by arguing “alternate facts!” AKA, “lies.” (BTW Where is Conway these days anyway?)
               
              And the list goes on down starting with the head Rump.
               
              Any Trump fans going to tell me how wrong I am about Trump & his Administration’s competency?

                Perhaps we should not be surprised by the flurry of unforced errors. President Trump has little relevant experience, zero curiosity in policy and a rotten temperament that suggests he is divorced from reality. His staff is a mix of ideological extremists and party hacks, none with White House experience. His 30-something daughter and son-in-law have no public experience, either. How did you [i]think[/i] this was going to work?
                 
                On Thursday, the administration was dealt a body blow when former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn let it be known that he was seeking immunity in exchange for testifying. One wonders: Immunity from what crime? And what has he got to tell us?
                 
                What Congress[i] did[/i] manage to pass and now heads to the presidents desk is [link=http://thehill.com/policy/technology/326631-gop-faces-backlash-over-attack-on-internet-privacy-rules]horrifically unpopular[/link]:
                [blockquote] Congressional Republicans are facing widespread outrage after advancing a bill that will overturn privacy protections for internet users.
                [/blockquote] Trump most definitely is not winning. Hes failing and flailing, shedding support from voters and alienating allies he desperately needs. An outbreak of backstabbing and skin-saving seems about to begin. (Trumps lack of loyalty to underlings suggests that they will be equally unwilling to protect their boss.)
                No wonder Trump has always worked in a family business. His dependents never cross him and can never resign and he never has to tell shareholders or the public how badly he flopped.

                A new Reuters/IPSOS tracking poll, released Friday afternoon, showed the president with a job approval rating of 75 percent among Republicans. 

                Political professionals generally view it as worrying for any commander-in-chief if his approval ratings with his own party dip below 85 percent and downright alarming if they go below 80 percent.

                Seventy-five [percent] is certainly a new number and I would want to see something that would either back that up or refute it, said GOP pollster David Winston, whose resumé includes work for former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.). Certainly, if it were true, that is not where you would want to be.

                    Trump falls to 39% in the Rasmussen survey.
                     
                    This has been by far the most favorable to Trump, often coming in around 50% while others had him at 40.   It has helped keep his RCP average up a lot too.
                     
                    This is the first time he has fallen into the 30s with  Rasmussen.

                      Trump’s anti-Midas touch. Except his personal fortunes do seem to continue to grow at taxpayer’s expense so he is successful for himself, just at our expense, his M.O.

                      A comment on Kathleens piece in WashPost.

                      I’m reminded of the occasion on which a woman approached Adlai Stevenson during one of his presidential campaigns. “You are supported by all thinking people,” she said (or words to that effect). “Yes, madame,” Stevenson replied, “but I need a majority.”

                      The most effective administration ever will only get more effective, you guys again are totally out of touch, as Scott Adams points out.

                      Trump has accomplished more in a half a year already than Obama ever even dreamed of. And he’s actually made good on many promises. I can list them, which will be funny when you try to deny all of them. And there are a lot.

                      The poll was regarding Trump, not the Republican party.
                       
                      The best assessment for how people feel party is the “generic ballot” :

                      Correct I don’t, but you support Trump.
                       
                      I don’t, never have & can’t imagine him changing so that I would. He’s the same crude man I read about since the 1980’s, at least.

                      Trump has accomplished more in 6 months than any president in my lifetime’s even 8 years
                       
                      Let me count the ways. He’s doing precisely what we voted him in for.

                      [url=https://politicalwire.com/2017/08/02/trump-approval-plunges-new-low/]Trump Approval Plunges to New Low in  new Quinnipiac poll , 33% to 61%.; Majority of Americans despise Trump[/url]

                       

                      But a deeper look into Quinnipiac numbers shows something even more striking: 55% of Americans strongly disapprove of Trump. The intensity of negative feelings towards the president are not like anything weve seen for recent presidents. Its not that voters dislike Trump, they despise him.

                      By a 54% to 26%, American voters say that they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president and by 57% to 40%, they say he is abusing the powers of his office.

                      Said pollster Tim Malloy: Its hard to pick what is the most alarming number in the troubling trail of new lows for President Trump. Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his level-headedness have to raise the biggest red flags. The daily drip drip of missteps and firings and discord are generating a tidal wave of bad polling numbers.

                      Also of note in the QU poll, Republican support drops to 76%.  (80% often consider the Mendoza line for same party support)

    Only 38 percent of registered voters said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, compared with 51 percent who disapproved. Thats down 3 percentage points since mid-February, and is considerably lower than other presidents at comparable times in their presidencies.

    Independents approve of the job Trump is doing by 34-52 percent, while Democrats approve by 9-84 percent. Republicans approve by 79-10 percent, which are strong numbers, though they have gone down 3 points since February.

    Trump’s approval rating slips to  near record low[/url][/h1]  

    President Trump’s approval rating has reached near-record lows, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.
     
    [link=https://poll.qu.edu/national/release-detail?ReleaseID=2456]The survey[/link] of registered voters found that 36 percent say they approve of Trump’s job performance, compared to 58 percent who disapprove. Trump’s approval has fallen from the 40 percent recorded in the same poll released in mid-April.
     
    “There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “[These] are red flags that the administration simply can’t brush away.”

      so as an aside I recall how Celebrity Apprentice tanked in the rating due to boycott that started on the internet–many stories were like are people really boycotting the show and I actively encourage people to boycott or look at the Bachelor
      -one of the reason the Apprentice did so well in the past was a lot of African Americans watched it and Trump was viewed positively–after the election that changed and the show tanked–I wonder if some of the viewers did turn to ABC The bachelor which was in that time slot–ABC saw that uptake and ta dah we get a black female bachelorette

          I wonder if main stream media coverage of Trump may have any influence on his approval rating. Read an interesting report about negative vs positive reporting. Study looked at coverage first 100 days of Trumps presidency. CNN/NBC 93% Neg 7%Pos stories. CBS was fairer 91% Neg 9% positive. Washington post even fairer 87% Neg 13%Pos. Fox News even leaned negative on Trump 52% Neg 48% Pos. Just for yuks they looked at reporting during first 100 days of Obama administration and found that Fox reported 57% Pos stories about Obama vs 43% Neg stories about Obama.

            President Obama did not tweet he was wiretapping someone–he did not have a Spicer tried to sell a lie from day 1 with and out control period–he did not have a staff member like Kelly anne with alternative facts–he did not have a Flynn be fired immediately/Russia–he did not have a manafort–he did not have a failed travel ban–he did not want to take people’s health care away from them and make the old and sick pay more–he did not a don jr son –he did not have a jared son-in-law- he did not have a daughter get license deals in china–the list is quite long

                Trump feeds off of media coverage and if there is nothing to report he deliberately does something to stoke the fire. At some point exaustion will set in.

                Omitting events because you don’t like them (like all of the campaign promises Trump has already fulfilled — the list is actually really long) is the point.

                As if 90% of the journalists are going to say, “Yeah, DT is doing great!”
                 
                You can’t even be honest about the fact that journalists are 89% lefty/Dem, and historically this is the case with newsrooms until the internet.

                    Stop claiming the list of trump accomplishments is long if you can’t list more than 1. Someone else wrote Neil G confirmation, and even that’s hard to see as an accomplishment. We’ve been without a 9th scotus for a while. It had to happen.

                      Gorsuch was McConnell’s big.  He deserves the credit (blame) for that.   He put all the chips on the table in 2016 and got it.   If an R took the Presidency Gorsuch was in.
                       
                      You need to compare Trump to “Other Republican President”…. by that measuring stick he is a net detriment to the GOP agenda …. which is fine with me.

                      At least in medical field I’d say that the cloud of the ACA repeal, messing with Medicare, threading to not make payments is detrimental to all of us. There needs to be some degree of certainty and that’s not coming from the GOP or Trump who changes with the wind.

                      Trumps base of support has shrunk from 35.3% of voters who have a strongly favorable view of him in April to only 28.6% today. Notably, much of that erosion is among Republicans: Strongly favorable views among GOP voters dropped from 54.1% to 44.9%, while unfavorable views increased from 20.5% to 27.9%.
                      [b]KEY POINT:[/b] Trumps base is shrinking. He cannot take continued GOP support for granted in swing states. 

                      Nearly half of voters (48.3%) believe Trump lies intentionally to mislead people, up from 43.4% in April. For Congressional Republicans, 51.8% now believe the same about them, up from 45.7% in April. Only 14.6% now believe Trump never lies, and only 9.1% believe the same about GOP congressmen/women. Today, only 5% of Republicans we surveyed believe Trump never lies, down from 31.3% in April.
                      [b]KEY POINT[/b]: Trumps false statements are eroding his credibility with voters, including Republicans. 

                      In April, one third of voters (33.8%) said President Trump had been successful, 35.8% said unsuccessful, and 30.6% said it was too soon to tell. Now, 27.4% say he has been successful, 44.9% say unsuccessful, and 27.7% say it is too soon to tell. Republicans still overwhelmingly believe he has been successful (43.9%) or that it is too soon to tell (35.8%). However, the percentage willing to say he has been unsuccessful has increased from 13.1% to 20.4%.
                      [b]KEY POINT: [/b]Voters are losing faith in Trumps ability to deliver on his big campaign promises.[/QUOTE]

                      Quote from Ben Casey

                      Can derg and Frumi tell us how their lives have deteriorated since Trump became president?

                      Like dergon, I’m caucasian and do not whine about “white discrimination” that doesn’t exist. But I have seen plenty of minority discrimination in my long lifetime, against black friends, hispanics, indians & other asian friends including muslims, LGBT friends, etc. Their discrimination is real not imaginary. Trump pumps up the inferiority complex of his supporters by telling them their fears and failures are real & due to “those others” who are taking away what is rightfully theirs.  
                       
                      “It’s all about the base (fears).” It’s all about fear of “the other.” It’s about entitlement.

                      So lots of fears and concerns……what has specifically happened to your lgbtq friends, black friends, etc since Trump became president? Was there no discrimination to any of these groups prior to Trump? Were any blacks mistreated by law enforcement prior to Trump? Again I would ask you what has changed since Trump became president?

                      The point is Ben, is that nothing much has happened simply because Trump & his Administration are so far incompetent & have not been able to do much of anything. Its not from lack of wanting, its just that hes a grandiose fool who happens to be POTUS. And the Republican Congress have proven that they cant govern. So the damage all these parties wanted to do has been minimized solely because they are all incompetent idiots. Trumpss skills are confined to his ability to tweet and create media distractions.

                      The question to you is what has he accomplished that is actually of any substance other than making gathering crowds of fawning supporters to boost his ego.

                      It’s not only me who worries about Trump and Trumpism. There are an awful lot of Republicans who are reconsidering their support snd pumping up of extremists and extremism and white resentment on racial terms, anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-Hispanic, etc. Jeff Flake just wrote a book, “The conscience of a Conservative,” mirroring Goldwater’s book in the 1960’s; George Will just wrote a piece on  the GOP being the party of the grotesque, he is joined by many other Republican editorial writers who are aghast that he is their candidate and is President; etc. Republicans are looking at 2018 and 2020 without Trump and are looking at the present without Trump since he has been of no help at all moving their agenda. Trump’s base is growing ever smaller as his only skill seems twiting and creating rallies to declare what a wonderful guy he is to adoring crowds, except what has he done? Outside of the rallies everyone else is scratching their heads.
                       
                      That said his whole campaign is about resentment and hatred. Fortunately for all of us and the country, he is the most incompetent president ever in modern history.
                       
                      [link=https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/05/opinion/sunday/white-resentment-affirmative-action.html]https://www.nytimes.com/2…ffirmative-action.html[/link]
                       

                      White resentment put Donald Trump in the White House. And there is every indication that it will keep him there, especially as he continues to transform that seething, irrational fear about an increasingly diverse America into policies that feed his supporters worst racial anxieties.
                       
                      If there is one consistent thread through Mr. Trumps political career, it is his overt connection to white resentment and white nationalism. Mr. Trumps fixation on Barack Obamas birth certificate gave him the white nationalist street cred that no other Republican candidate could match, and that credibility has sustained him in office no amount of scandal or evidence of incompetence will undermine his followers belief that he, and he alone, could Make America White Again.
                      The guiding principle in Mr. Trumps government is to turn the politics of white resentment into the policies of white rage that calculated mechanism of executive orders, laws and agency directives that undermines and punishes minority achievement and aspiration. No wonder that, even while his White House sinks deeper into chaos, scandal and legislative mismanagement, Mr. Trumps approval rating among whites (and only whites) has remained unnaturally high. Washington may obsess over Obamacare repeal, Russian sanctions and the debt ceiling, but Mr. Trumps base sees something different and, to them, inspiring.
                       
                      Like on Christmas morning, every day brings his supporters presents: travel bans against Muslims, Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in Hispanic communities and brutal, family-gutting deportations, a crackdown on sanctuary cities, an Election Integrity Commission stacked with notorious vote suppressors, announcements of a ban on transgender personnel in the military, approval of police brutality against thugs, a denial of citizenship to immigrants who serve in the armed forces and a renewed war on drugs that, if it is anything like the last one, will single out African-Americans and Latinos although they are not the primary drug users in this country. Last week, Mr. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions put the latest package under the tree: a staffing call for a case on reverse discrimination in college admissions, likely the first step in a federal assault on affirmative action and a determination to hunt for colleges and universities that discriminate against white applicants.
                       
                      That so many of these policies are based on perception and lies rather than reality is nothing new.
                       
                      In the end, white resentment is so myopic and selfish that it cannot see that when the larger nation is thriving, whites are, too. Instead, it favors policies and politicians that may make America white again, but also hobbled and weakened, a nation that has squandered its greatest assets its people and its democracy.

    IBD: [url=http://www.investors.com/politics/trump-approval-hits-new-low-of-32-as-support-from-his-base-slips-ibdtipp-poll/]Trump Approval Hits New Low Of 32% As Support From His Base Slips IBD/TIPP Poll[/url]

    President Trump’s approval rating dropped 5 percentage points in August to a new low of 32%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll, with 59% saying they disapprove of the job he’s doing as president.

    Trump lost significant support across the board, but saw big declines among areas of core support, including Republicans, Midwesterners, middle-income families, white men and the high-school educated. The results come in the wake of the Senate’s failure to repeal ObamaCare, upheavals in the White House staff, the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the election, and the daily beatings administered by the mainstream press.

    Among Republicans, for example, Trump’s approval rating fell from 83% in July to 71% in August. Trump’s already low approval ratings remained relatively unchanged among Democrats (4%) and independents (30%).[/QUOTE]

      he will continue to fail–why–because of his own incompetence–he is so inappropriate for the job–he could not let a day go by without firing off a nasty tweet at a black CEO who left due to disgust of Trump’s poor response to Charlottesville
      -now other CEOs are leaving–why–because Trump is toxic to your brand–he turns to crap everything he touches( 4 failed casinos)
      he is another Imus/Bill O Reilly–Boycotts have started with respect to the Trump brand–like the winery in Charlottesville that he needs non-Americans to work it
      -he said nothing on how those haters desecrated President Jefferson’s University with the torch lit display on Friday–but he has no concept of history–he doesn’t get the job–he can’t give empathy because he just does not have it in him–empty–tone death-gives a speech like he is constipated–could not go a day without tweeting about Chicago-like see I am right–the next guy will be Muslim and I will be right—He does not get it and the people who voted for him are the losers
      as an aside went to Ronald Reagan Library today in Simi Valley–what a spectacular view–Reagan had a calming voice–Trump is always screaming
      people are saying heh heh ho hO #45 has got to go

            The look on Kelly’s face while Trump was running off at the mouth was priceless.  Absolutely priceless.  Though, in the absence of an event, or series of event a la 2007/08,  I don’t see his poll numbers going a whole lot lower.  The rabid Trumpsters will stay with him, and those people are enough to keep him above 30%.
             
            And, the reality is, I don’t want to see his numbers go a lot lower than they are now…because nothing raises poll numbers faster than manufactured war- see George W. Bush’s numbers shortly before Iraq needed some “freedom.”

    President Donald Trumps job approval rating is at its lowest point since taking office with only 35% of Americans giving him a positive score.  55% disapprove of the job he is doing which is his highest negative rating as president.  Although still popular among his key constituency, notably, his job performance rating has dropped among strong Republicans from 91% in June to 79% now. In addition, by more than two to one, Americans who strongly disapprove of his job performance, 42%, outnumber those who strongly approve, 20%.  In June, his overall approval rating stood at 37%, and 51% disapproved.  At a similar time in President Obamas tenure, 55% of registered voters approved of the job he was doing, and 35% disapproved.

    More Americans also have a negative impression of the president. 60% of residents, including one in five Republicans, view Trump unfavorably, representing his most unpopular standing since assuming office.  Only 34% have a favorable view of him.  When this question was last reported in June, Trumps negative score was 56%, and his positive rating was 37%.  There has been a drop in the proportion of strong Republicans who have a positive view of the president from 94% in June to 80% this time.[/QUOTE]

      So much for a businessman “leading” the country. Down the tubes we go.
       
      More CEOs resign from Trump’s business committees in protest over Trump’s non leadership about Charlottesville. So his solution? Dissolve the committees.

                      Trump really looked unhinged in that press conference–he looked like he was about to blow–when he turned to Acosta and said “we just had a press conference”–I swear he reminded me of Robert de Niro’s crazy Travis character in taxi driver when he looks into the mirror and says U talkin’ to me–I dare a network to both those images side by side–the eyes of both men looked empty and unhinged
                      but Acosta did not back down–he said well sir u spread a lot of fake news yourself

                      Much of the decline in Trumps approval rating appears to have come from self-identified Republican voters 73%, down from 81% last week.

                      Time for Pence. He’s even adversarial to his own party. He’s attacking both sides of congressional GOP leadership. Don’t bite the hand that feeds. I’m sure these numbers keep going down as he doesn’t get jack done.

    [b]Trump approval hits new low:[/b]

    A new [link=https://www.monmouth.edu/polling-institute/reports/MonmouthPoll_US_121317/]Monmouth poll[/link] finds President Trumps job approval at 32% to 56%, the lowest since hes taken office.

    The decline in Trumps job rating has come much more from women, currently 24% to 68%, than from men, which is 40% to 44%.

    Democrats lead the generic congressional ballot by 15 percentage points, 51% to 36%.

    ____________

    RCP average approval at 37.0%, also hitting a new all-time low.

    Trump approval at 37% with 53% disapprove.

    40% approval if you go with registered voters.

    85% Republican approval.

      None of that will matter if the other 2/3’s of the voters don’t turn out to vote as they did not turn out the last election. Or if they split their votes as they did the last election. And that goes especially for the minority voters, blacks, hispanics, asian, etc. (all the non-European-looking voters) who didn’t turn out. Look at Alabama to see what can happen if they all turn out to vote. Alabama is THE reason Republicans have worked so hard all these past years to suppress the minority vote. 
       
      Dalai & Jan are involved in their navel-gazing conspiracy theories about brown illegal immigrants voting Democratic; 1st thing is illegals can’t vote & even Dalai isn’t capable of proving they have ever voted and 2nd, illegals were never needed, citizens will do perfectly fine so long as they actually turn out to vote like they did in 2008.

        Yeah. His solid GOP approval doesn’t do much for him in the midterms.  He’s not on the ballot for his own supporters. but he is certainly on the ballot in the mind of the opposition.
         
         
        But … and it’s a big but …. 85% approval among Republicans means that we are nowhere near GOP elected officials abandoning him.  That matters for investigations, impeachment etc.

              If only 4 in 10 people like you I’m not sure he’s got that much to brag about.  I actually think he’s sweating the mid-terms.  I might even end up having to vote for Rich Cordray in OH.

                  On 538 the aggregate of the polling shows DJT compared to BO.  BO was 20 points higher than Donald at the beginning of his presidency.

                    Rasmussen leans right …. would put Obama down by a few and Trump up by a few.
                     
                     
                    Trump is certainly at present at a lower point than Obama was at this point.
                     
                    But, at the same time, Trump has absolutely come up by a few points in the last couple of months (From average around 40% to now more around 43%).
                     
                    Good economy continues and he is for now getting some credit on the foreign policy front.

                      Here is a good take on the changing recent dynamics from Charlie Cook. (Non-partisan election watcher)
                       
                      Cook Political Report: [link=http://cookpolitical.com/analysis/national/national-politics/glimmers-hope-gop]Glimmers of hope for the GOP[/link]

                      Over the past 90 days, the presidents approval ratings have ticked up to the low-to-mid 40sstill extremely low for elected incumbent presidents in their second year in office, but certainly better from where they had been. In the April 30-May 6 Gallup poll, Trumps approval rating stood at 42 percent. That is the same as the previous week, and his disapproval rating of 52 percent was a point lower than the week of April 23-29.

                      In the generic-ballot test, the GOP is now typically behind by mid-to-high single digits. As with Trumps approval rating, Republicans are still in an alarming position on that front, but better than they were.

                      The improvement late last year seemed very clearly to be related to the tax cut, something almost universally supported by Republican and GOP-leaning independents, if few others. The recent uptick seems more likely to have been triggered by good economic numbers and promising developments on the Korean peninsula. For all of Trumps ill-advised statements and actions, the wheels have not completely come off of the bus. Whats not clear is whether that dynamicif it lastsis enough for Republicans to retain their House and Senate majorities.

                      Whether the Trump base will turn out when his name is not on the ballot is still uncertain. There were quite a few 2008 and 2012 Obama voters who did not deign to vote in 2010 and 2014; will Trump voters behave the same way? And will congressional Republicans provide a rationale for voters who are not part of the Trump base to throw a non-Trump Republican a midterm vote? So far, congressional Republicans are doing little to win over those who are not firmly in the Trump camp. They are allowing this election to frame up simply as for or against Trumpa decidedly risky strategy.[/QUOTE]

                      “Popularity” numbers need to be taken with a tablespoon of salt since Clinton won the popular vote by a significant margin. She lost because she lost significant votes in specific states and therefore the College which may be all that matters in an election but which again underlines the fact that popularity is not so important.
                       
                      Basically the exit polls and predictions were correct as they all made conclusions of Clinton’s victory on the popular vote.

                      Yep.  The statewide polling is what really matters.
                       
                       
                      That is *especially* true for the Senate.  Trump might be only 42-43% nationally, but in West Virgina he’s in the mid sixties… and around 50% in Indiana and Missouri.

                      “The Core,” the 33% for whom nothing Trump could do would be unacceptable. Including encouraging the end of American democracy to become a Russian or Chinese or Venezuelan democracy, where the election outcome is already known and the election is a formality to install the “right” candidate.

                      Yep. It finally happened.  The “normal” Republicans finally left Trump.  All it took was losing the Presidential election, costing Republicans the Senate, and attempting to overthrow the government.

      So exactly the rate at which they voted for him in 2020 and handed out their 6 EVs.
