Still hovering at 79% approval of Republicans in Gallup polls.

That's the only number that matters.  The Republicans cannot abandon him or the party (in both senses) ends.   Thus, they'll make all the tut-tutting noises they can while doing nothing whatsoever to actually endanger him.

Meanwhile the moderates who voted for Trump will turn on anyone that aligns with him in 2018.

So, hope the Republicans realize that when they become the minority party.

It's a little more complicated than that. Look at the latest from Quinnipiac (I selected the questions that had real outliers in the responses and have bolded them):

1. Do you approve or disapprove of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as President?

That's the only number that matters.  The Republicans cannot abandon him or the party (in both senses) ends.


But they already are abandoning him, somewhat. He had 90%+ approval from Republicans just a few months ago. It may not drop to the sub-30% level he's going to have nationwide before much longer, but I'd bet that before this is all over, there will be a poll, on the record, showing him with less than 50% support of his own party.
 
2017-08-25 06:47:41 PM  
Every time I see a poll thread it's at 34%.  This isn't a "new low" worthy of headlines anymore.  I want sub-30 dammit.
 
2017-08-25 06:47:50 PM  
I thought Truman was in the 20% range at one point.
 
2017-08-25 06:49:15 PM  
I really want to see reporters ask Trump questions and lead with this opener. Like, "Mr. President, poll after poll shows you to be the least popular president ever - do you feel you're doing the right thing for America?" or some such.

I really want to see that. Just to see the narcissist flip.
 
2017-08-25 06:49:33 PM

Republicans have all three branches and they don't want to squander this opportunity until they get 4 things:

1) SCOTUS appointment
2) Obamacare repeal
3) Tax cuts
4) (if there's time) some social policies (ie: defunding NPR/PP, religious freedom, immigration, etc.)

They already got the first one, the second one blew up in their faces, and they're going to try for the third one next month (the fourth is optional. Those are things they'd pursue if they got the first three done quickly which doesn't seem likely anymore).

So the key thing here are the tax cuts. If they can't pass the tax cuts, or it blows up in their faces like Obamacare did, THEN they'll turn on Trump. But not until they get their goodies first.
 
2017-08-25 07:02:29 PM  
Ohhh, I think we can do worse.. We are talking about the american voters here... i foresee a future president soo horrible that we all opt to just go back to rule under the crown because we obviously can't be trusted with self rule...

Wait a minute, I've just been handed some polling results...

And I'd like to officially submit for congressional review a resolution to dissolve the union and submit once again to crown rule.. all in favor?

Obama's average Strongly Approve/Disapprove number at Rasmussen over both terms was -11.4%.
Rasmussen has Trump bouncing along at ~-20% lately.

Trump has already matched Obama's low of -26%, which took Obama years to hit.

Ok, I can kinda understand old white guys hanging on with him, in a weird way. But what has me baffled is why on God's Green Earth would any female support him? Why?

Ladies, he objectifies you and he wants you subjugated. You think once he and those old white guys are done with the blacks, messicans and joos, they're all going to give you women a free pass? Really? You best get back in the kitchen and stay there if you support Trump. Jeez ladies. What this guy is doing, what he stands for is very wrong. And you need to stand up for yourselves.

Trump can still win reelection if he can rally his base and the idiots who reliably don't vote or vote third party continue to do so.

Baloney.  This is fake news and the real news is the opposite of the fake news.

Donald J. Trump therefore is obviously the most popular President.  Ever.

"It's worth noting that Ford's popularity plummeted after he pardoned his predecessor, Richard Nixon, who resigned in disgrace following the Watergate scandal. It was a widely condemned move at the time, but perceptions have since shifted and it is now largely seen as a brave decision that helped the country heal."

More than 40 years later and still farking that chicken. It's dead, sicko, it's dead, let it go.

Or if Kasich and hickenlooper decide to run as Independents.  That will guarantee 4 more years of Trump since exactly none of his base will ever desert him while hordes of Russian trollbots work to split the votes of everyone else.
