No one except the left cares about approval ratings. But keep using that as you're compass and see how it works out this time.

At this point, Trump could rape every child of one of his supporters followed by a ritual sacrifice to Satan, then slowly dissect the parents of that supporter while they were alive, dancing in their pooled blood so he could get a colorful groove on with his daughter Ivanka while Jared claps happily as his wife is molested by Trump,

and EVERY Trump supporter would cheer happily,
and EVERY Republican would support him because they are just rancid chunks of meat who mouth agreement with other Republican.

Am I far from wrong or do I need to go farther?

I'm thinking the response to Hurricane Harvey is going to determine his short-term approval trajectory very quickly.

If you're not a weather buff... hoooo boy it is going to be an interesting week.  Media hasn't caught onto what looks like is about to happen.

I'm part of the left and don't care about approval numbers, per se.

What I do care about is that anyone thought voting for a sexual assaulting, racist, xenophobic narcissist was ever a good idea.

Seeing his public support eroding is less about Trump for me and more an indication that maybe, just maybe, America can learn from its truly stupid mistakes.
 
2017-08-24 06:55:19 PM  
Except that's not what TFA says, subby. It's a slow decline, a little over one percent a month...

One a month. Oh. Versus six since November?

I see what you did there...

That's actually really as far as you have to go. There's no limit for those people. They will still "be right" while Trump is shiatting on their graves. They are officially a cult at this point and should be treated as such.

And Trump. You somehow forgot Trump, who tweets approval of every poll which shows him up slightly, even when they are way below 50. Trump cares a lot. Like, 13 year old little girl cares a lot.  It's pathetic how much he cares, really.

True.  Just drawing a line and watching Trump and his minions cross it every time.
I just like drawing lines.  I've given up trying to constrain Trump's behaviors and the depths that his cult members will happily plumb.

The polling average showed Clinton winning by 3 points nationally.  She won by 2.

I don't it.  It's time to revisit the way the Federal Government taxes and redistributes funds.  There's no reason people in California should be buying text books in Kansas.  Fixing that injustice would go a long way towards healing the country.

As a fan of well-crafted hyperbole, please, go farther. I mean, we get the idea, but necessity lends craft to art.

FTA: But a 34-55 approval-to-disapproval ratio is not all that different from Trump's overall approval-disapproval rating. In fact, it's pretty darn similar good enough to win the Presidency when dumb people don't vote or vote third party.

Fixed that. He is sticking with what won him the election because there's no evidence yet that tells him it won't win him reelection.

As has been noted many times before, all of Trump's problems so far have been of his own making.  It's absolutely crazy that a new president could get his approval rating into the mid-30s after inheriting a solid economy.  It's been remarkably smooth sailing since the election; the biggest problems we've had are from the racists the president has encouraged.

Given how much self-inflicted damage he's done, what's going to happen when something really bad happens?  How's he going to handle a hurricane or a terrorist attack?  Sure, he just ignored the domestic terror attack at the Sikh temple because he's a racist, but at some point something is going to happen that will be too big for him to wave off as fake news.

Yes, thank God you didn't vote for the competent professional and instead went with the petty monster capable of literally anything and his staff of white nationalists.  Really dodged a bullet there.

As the article points out, polls numbers this early in a president's term mean nothing. Both Carter and GHWBush were riding high at this point.

I totally get the wishful thinking--I have it too. But the reality is that it's still going to be a very uphill fight to win the White House from the Repugs.

She was barely leading national polls on Election Day.  She won by a few million votes.

Can we stop with the 'polls wrong' garbage.

Plus the farking election was hacked.

Not to nit pick, but he isn't capable of doing his current job, telling the truth, not spewing gibberish on Twitter, and a host of other things i won't go on to list. So, technically,  he is not literallycapable of anything.
