Gallup says his approval rating is the highest it's ever been. Quinnipiac says it's taken a dip.
The two are consistent, as Gallup said the president just had his best quarter, i.e., from April 20 to July 19. (May in June in particular were good months, relatively speaking, for the president.)

The latest Quinnipiac poll was conducted July 18-23.

The Hill
Poll: Majority says they will hold Trump accountable for ObamaCare failings

A majority of the public says they hold the Trump administration and Congress accountable for any problems with ObamaCare because they have made changes to the law, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll found that a majority of those surveyed — 58 percent — said they hold the administration and Republican members of Congress responsible for any problems with the ACA since they have made a number of changes to the law.

According to the survey, most of the public also say they think President Trump and his administration are trying to make the Affordable Care Act fail.

Fifty-six percent of respondents believe the administration is trying to make the law fail, while 32 percent say they think it's trying to make it work.

Of those who say the administration is trying to make the law fail, 47 say that it’s a "bad thing" while 7 percent say it is a "good thing."

The Hill
Poll: Majority backs ObamaCare, disapprove of Trump on health care

A majority of Americans support the continuation of the Affordable Care Act and disapprove of President Trump’s handling of health care, according to a poll released Tuesday.

An Axios/SurveyMonkey poll shows that 59 percent of adults surveyed would like to see the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, stand or be bolstered. Meanwhile, 57 percent of adults do not approve of Trump’s policies on health care, where he has made gutting ObamaCare an administration priority.

The poll found that several subsets of voters largely support ObamaCare. The majority of suburban white women and adults ages 18-34 both indicated they want to see ObamaCare remain in place, the poll found.

Among African-American women, 86 percent said they want ObamaCare to stand or see Congress do more with the existing law, according to the poll.

Sixty-three percent of voters described in the poll as “Never Hillary” independents also back keeping ObamaCare.

CNN
Poll: Trump is as strongly disliked now as Nixon was before he resigned ...

Poll of the week: A new Marist College poll finds that 20% of Americans rate President Donald Trump's job performance as excellent, 20% as pretty good, 13% as only fair and 45% as poor.

There is, not surprisingly, a large gap between how members of the two parties view Trump. Although only 2% of Democrats say Trump is doing an excellent job, 49% of Republicans do. Democrats are far more likely to give a poor rating at 80% compared to 6% of Republicans.

What's the big idea: Trump has, throughout his first term, maintained a low but fairly steady approval rating. He's also had a high disapproval rating. Because Trump's ratings have remained in stasis relative to other presidents, a number have "caught up" to Trump's unpopularity at this point in their presidency. Put another way: Trump is no longer clearly the least popular president at this point in his presidency.

What still makes Trump unique though is the amount of intensity his detractors have for him. You might say many strongly dislike him. The excellent, pretty good, only fair and poor scale allows us to get at that because it's been asked for every president since President John Kennedy.

Trump is as strongly disliked as President Richard Nixon was when he resigned the presidency 44 years ago this week. Back then, 45% of people said Nixon was doing a poor job as president in a Harris poll.

Poll: Majority says Trump has emboldened racists to speak out

More than half of American voters believe President Trump has helped encouraged people with racist beliefs to express them, according to a new survey.

A Quinnipiac University poll published Tuesday found that 54 percent of voters believe Trump “has emboldened people who hold racist beliefs to express those beliefs publicly.”

The results of the survey closely mirror the results from another Quinnipiac University poll published July 3. That poll found that 55 percent of voters believed Trump had encouraged people with racist beliefs to be more open with them.

Seventy-eight percent of Democrats in Tuesday's poll said Trump has emboldened people with racist beliefs, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans who said the same. ...

On Tuesday, Trump took heat for the language he used in a tweet against former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, who recently published a tell-all memoir about her time in the administration.
When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!

Politico
Poll: Most Americans think Trump doesn't 'hire the best people'

President Donald Trump repeatedly said during the 2016 election that he would “hire the best people” for his administration, but a new poll Monday shows that most Americans don't think he delivered on that promise.

The new Monmouth University Poll found that only 30 percent of respondents believe that Trump has hired the "best people," with 58 percent saying he has not. Twelve percent of those polled responded either that the president’s hiring record was mixed or that they didn’t know about his hiring record.

Trump's White House has experienced higher-than-usual turnover. And several of his hires for his 2016 campaign and White House have made news in recent weeks. ...

The Monmouth poll found that about three-quarters of respondents were aware of Manafort’s trial and Manigault Newman’s book release.

Respondents held a dim view of how the Trump White House operates in general — just 19 percent said that they were “very confident” in the way that the president’s advisers and staff are handling their jobs, with 23 percent saying they were “somewhat confident” in White House personnel. More than half said they were "not too confident" or "not at all confident."

USA Today
Poll: Michael Cohen's guilty plea raises serious questions about Donald Trump's behavior

WASHINGTON – The guilty plea by Donald Trump's former lawyer to campaign finance and other charges raises serious questions about the president's own behavior, an overwhelming majority of Americans say in a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll.

Nearly two-thirds say the president should voluntarily agree to be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller. ...

Fifty-five percent say they have a lot or some trust in Mueller's investigation to be fair and accurate. Just 35 percent say they have a lot or some trust in Trump's denials of collusion. The telephone survey has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points. ...

The president's approval rating has edged down to 40 percent, three points lower than in the USA TODAY/Suffolk survey taken in June. But he retains the approval of a solid 89 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters. Fifty-six percent overall disapprove of the job he is doing as president. ...

However, most Americans are prepared to be patient: 55 percent say the special counsel should take all the time he needs to finish the investigation, even if it continues into next year; 40 percent say he should wrap it up within weeks, as Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has argued.

By 63 percent to 27 percent, those polled say Trump should agree to be interviewed by Mueller. That includes nearly a third of Republicans.

ABC News
Trouble for Trump: Disapproval at a high, 63% back Mueller, half favor impeachment

Disapproval of Donald Trump is at a new high, support for the Mueller investigation is broad and half of Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll favor Congress initiating impeachment proceedings against the president.

Sixty percent in the national survey disapprove of Trump’s performance in office, numerically the highest of his presidency, albeit by a single point; that includes 53 percent who disapprove strongly, more than half for the first time. Thirty-six percent approve, matching his low.

See PDF for full results, charts and tables. ...

Trump’s average approval rating since taking office is the lowest for any president in modern polling since the 1940s. One factor: Contrary to his “drain the swamp” rhetoric, 45 percent say corruption in Washington has increased under Trump, while just 13 percent say it’s declined.

Suspicions of the president relating to the Mueller investigation are substantial. Sixty-one percent say that if assertions by Cohen are true, Trump broke the law. Fifty-three percent also think Trump obstructed special counsel Robert Mueller’s work.

The national survey, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, finds that half the public supports Congress initiating impeachment proceedings against Trump, 49-46 percent; support rises to 57 percent among women. And support for the investigation running its course is broader: Americans overall back Mueller’s probe by 63-29 percent. Fifty-two percent support it strongly, a high level of strong sentiment. ...

The single biggest shift is among college-educated white women – just 23 percent now approve of Trump, down 17 points from the peak in April 2017, with disapproval up 20 points, from 55 percent then to 75 percent now. Still, even among non-college white men, a core Trump group, his approval is down 15 points, from 70 percent just this spring to 55 percent today.

Emerson College
Emerson e-Poll: Voters Better Off Financially, Country Worse Off Overall Under Trump -- Consider Third Party Option for 2020

A new Emerson e-Poll finds President Trump comes out of the summer with a lower approval rating despite voters doing well financially. The president has a 38% approval and 53% disapproval in the survey -- down from his early July numbers of 43%A/ 50%D. The e-Poll was conducted August 29-31, n=1,000 +/- 3.2%.

39% of those polled say they are doing better financially, with 25% opting that they are doing worse than they were two years ago. Of those that said they were doing better financially, 57% credit the president, while of those who said they were doing worse, 41% blamed the president.

Despite an improved financial situation, 47% think the country overall is worse off than it was two years ago; 35% said it was better off. This breaks along party lines, as only 13% of Democrats and 29% of Independents say the country is better off; 65% of Republicans say the country is better off now than two years ago.

Trump’s struggle with female voters continues: 57% of females disapprove of the president while 34% approve. Trump’s approval rating increases with older voters, however, and is above water with those over 75 years old, with a 47% approval and 45% disapproval. Trump also is popular among those with a high school degree or less, with a 47% approval and 42% disapproval.

The Generic ballot test for Congress has the Democrats leading the Republicans 52% to 39%.Independent voters are breaking for the Democratic candidate 46% to 32%. In a Generic ballot test for President, the generic Democrat leads the generic Republican 49% to 39%.In this generic ballot test, Independents slightly break for the Democrat 40% to 35%.

I have the flue and I'm tired, but isn't that headline specious? ??? "Despite Voters Doing Well" ???? It jarred me enough to go read the article specifically to find out who these voters are that are doing well. Because in the English language, "Voters Doing Well" implies at the very least "most voters doing well," yes?

Here's what I found: "39% of those polled say they are doing better financially, with 25% opting that they are doing worse than they were two years ago. Of those that said they were doing better financially, 57% credit the president, while of those who said they were doing worse, 41% blamed the president."

So 57 percent of 39 percent of [people or voters; it's unclear] say they credit 45 for doing "better" financially. What a mish-mash. And, having been taught to round up in the fourth grade, I note that 50 percent of 40 is 20. And who gives a fuck?

Okay, more Tylenol now.

WaPo - Greg Sargent
Voters want a check on this lawless, raging president. This new poll confirms it. ...

What’s more, the new Post-ABC poll suggests that the anti-Trump backlash we’ve seen throughout this cycle among suburban, college-educated and independent voters is running strong: According to the cross-tabs, college-educated whites want a Democratic-led Congress as a check on Trump by 62-34, and suburban voters want the same by 58-37. Independents want a check by 63-27.

This could loom large, because many of the GOP-held districts that are key to a Democratic takeover are suburban and college-educated ones. The Post-ABC poll finds that Democrats lead in the generic ballot match-up among suburban voters by 52-40, and among college-educated whites by 53-39.

... Trump remains deeply unpopular, particularly among the independents and college-educated whites who could matter this fall: The new Post-ABC poll finds his approval at 38-60 among overall registered voters, at 35-59 among independents, and at 33-64 among college-educated whites. Plus, the tax-cut plan is a total political bust. So all that’s left is to energize GOP voters with race-baiting appeals about immigration and authoritarian attacks on Mueller and the “fake news” media.

But all that actually helps build a very good case for voting Republicans out. The Post-ABC poll also finds that majorities support the Mueller investigation and believe Trump is guilty of wrongdoing, including engaging (in the process of interfering with the Russia probe) in obstruction of justice. And as noted above, large majorities — including among college-educated whites and independents — want a Congress that will check the president.

The more Trump rages against the mechanisms of accountability to motivate his own voters to rally to his defense against them, the more he reminds everyone else precisely why we urgently need a Democratic-controlled Congress — that is, real accountability — more than ever.

Gallup
Three in 10 Say Trump Acted Illegally During 2016 Campaign

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Three in 10 U.S. adults believe Donald Trump acted illegally in separate incidents during the 2016 campaign. Twenty-nine percent believe he broke the law for his campaign's alleged involvement with Russian officials, the focus of independent counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Meanwhile, 31% say Trump acted illegally in making payments to two women in the fall of 2016 who alleged having affairs with him.

Americans are more inclined to believe Trump acted unethically, but not illegally, in the hush-money payments matter (37%) than to say he did nothing seriously wrong (23%). On the other hand, more, 35%, believe Trump did nothing wrong in the Russia matter than say he acted unethically (27%). ...

Americans are paying significantly more attention to the Russian investigation than to the hush-money story. Nearly two-thirds say they are following news about Russian officials' involvement in the presidential election story very (33%) or somewhat (32%) closely, while about half are following the story about the payments very (18%) or somewhat (31%) closely.

Those closely following the story about the hush-money payments are much more inclined than those paying less attention to think Trump acted illegally. Sixty-one percent following the story very closely say he acted illegally, compared with 37% following it somewhat closely and 16% who are not following it closely.

The Economist
Donald Trump’s approval ratings are pulled down by college-educated whites

His current numbers are only just above the low point of December 2017


ANYONE wondering how long it takes Americans to digest the news that their president has been implicated in a conspiracy to commit federal campaign-finance violations now has an answer: about two weeks. In late August Michael Cohen, Mr Trump’s longtime fixer, pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges, directly implicating the president in several. Since Mr Cohen filed his guilty plea and Paul Manafort, Mr Trump’s former campaign chairman, was convicted on eight counts of tax and bank fraud, Mr Trump’s approval rating has sunk to its lowest level since April 2018. Mr Trump’s handling of Senator John McCain’s death may also be contributing to the slump in support; the president played golf last weekend while the nation mourned the loss of Mr McCain. Though it is hard to be sure, this looks like a case of the (not-fake) news cycle doing its work.

According to The Economist’s weekly survey of 1,500 Americans by YouGov, a polling firm, 53% of voters disapprove of the president’s job performance while 38% approve, just two points above his all-time low in December. Other pollsters have found similar numbers: a survey released by Emerson College pegs the president’s support at 38%, while polls from ABC News and Investors Business Daily both find a modestly lower 36%. What is more, the share of voters who say they “strongly disapprove” of Mr Trump has increased by five points, from 37% to 42%, over the past few weeks. These numbers approach an all-time low for Mr Trump, when he polled consistently around 36% in our survey.

Quinnipiac University
September 10, 2018 - U.S. Voters Believe Anonymous Trump Charges 2-1, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Voters Are High On Economy, Split On Kavanaugh

American voters believe 55 - 28 percent anonymous allegations that senior aides to President Donald Trump work behind his back to keep him from making what the aides believe are bad decisions, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

Republicans don't believe these accounts 52 - 27 percent, the only listed party, gender, education, age or racial group which does not believe that aides are working behind the president's back, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll finds.

But American voters say 51 - 39 percent that the person who wrote the allegations did the wrong thing by submitting them to the media to be published anonymously.

American voters disapprove 54 - 38 percent of the job President Trump is doing, compared to a 54 - 41 percent disapproval August 14. ...

"American voters believe those tales of intrigue coming from the Trump White House, but they think it's wrong to tell those tales anonymously," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"The economy booms, but President Donald Trump's numbers are a bust. An anemic 38 percent approval rating is compounded by lows on honesty, strength and intelligence.

I’m not sure if Trump is completely in denial about who he is or just doesn’t care, but what kind of needy, arrogant, dumbass runs for president with a personality like his? The entire world, minus a few reprobates, thinks he’s a disaster, dishonest, weak, much stupider than he needs to be for this job, and they aren’t shy about shouting it to the skies. He’ll have no legacy, no presidential* library, no speeches worth scholarly dissection. How’s he going to live the rest of his life?

I'm counting on Trump voters, some of whom I've met, who believed that "Candidate Trump" was an act, and the phantom "Powerful Business Genius Trump" would emerge after inauguration day... only to gradually realize that what they had seen was who he really is.

Will some of them vote for him again? Perhaps, but I am certain that some won't.

In denial. Same as he has all along.

That is classic narcissistic behavior. They think they're great even when everyone else thinks otherwise. Completely lacking self-insight, they never learn from criticism, they just fly into rages when criticized.

I maintain people vote for persons whose qualities resemble their own. Which is why I have no respect for Trump supporters, nor any hope that they can be persuaded. Trump is proud of not being persuadable, and that's one of the things they admire about him: he doesn't change his mind, and he never admits he's wrong. They don't, either.

CNN Poll: Trump approval down 6 points in a month, hits low among independents

WASHINGTON (CNN)President Donald Trump's approval rating has fallen 6 points in the last month and stands at a new low among political independents, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS.

Overall, just 36% approve of the way the President is handling his job, down from 42% in August. Among independents, the drop has been sharper, from 47% approval last month to 31% now. That's 4 points below his previous 2018 low of 35% approval among political independents in CNN polling, and 1 point below his previous all-time low among independents in CNN polling, reached in November 2017. ...

A scant 13% of Americans think most administration officials are working against Trump in the ways described in the op-ed, while 59% say that at least some are acting that way. Just 17% say it's not happening at all, as the White House has claimed in response to the op-ed (that figure rises to 27% among Republicans).

The President's favorability rating -- a measure of whether people like him, rather than approve of his job performance -- has also taken a hit in this poll, with 61% saying they have unfavorable views of Trump, up from 55% in June. That unfavorable number is the worst since he won the presidency, and it matches the worst level seen during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump has also lost ground on several personal attributes, most notably perceptions of his honesty: Just 32% say they see the President as honest and trustworthy, the worst read in CNN polling. About a third, 32%, say he's someone they are proud to have as President, down 6 points since March and the lowest since Trump took office. Only 36% say he "cares about people like you," another new low. Just 30% say he'll unite the country and not divide it, matching his previous low on that measure from November 2017. Four in 10 say the President can bring the kind of change the country needs, down 5 points from March and matching a November 2017 low. And 60% say the President does not respect the rule of law, not significantly changed since March.

That's still a fucking THIRD of the country. Jeazess H. Kreist! One of every three people in this great land of ours thinks the bastard is honest, trustworthy, and someone they're proud to have as President? That's insane. That's completely, irredeemably, thoroughly INSANE.

Holy Manole. That's depressing. I can't trust people any more. I can't trust the Constitution to prevent this kind of sociopathic crook from being in office. I can't trust Congress to do the right thing. How did we get here from 2008?

Simple: Faith-Based Politics. As in, "I believe what I want to believe, and nothing can change my mind."

Simply explained; still scary as hell. :shock:

Just 32% say they see the President as honest and trustworthy, the worst read in CNN polling. About a third, 32%, say he's someone they are proud to have as President, down 6 points since March and the lowest since Trump took office.

A fucking third of the country, roughly, has always been insane. I worry when it goes above a fucking third.

IMO about 20 percent of the country says ("says" being the operative word) they believe that 45 is honest/trustworthy because they are brain-dead haters, nazis and racists; with some percentage of that 20 percent outright lying. Another 10 to 15 percent do not follow politics at all, have no idea how the government runs, and are simply adopting a party line rather than admit they have no clue to whoever is asking the question. Any further lowering of that 32 percent is going to come from this group.

This is me spitballing; no data to back it up. I know a lot of people who have no clue.


No matter where you go, there you are! :towel:
