FOX NEWS POLL: Bernie Sanders remains the most popular politician in the US

A Fox News poll released Wednesday indicated some Americans have unfavorable opinions about the Trump administration, as well as some congressional Democrats and Republicans.

Trump's overall job approval rating has dropped five points compared to a February poll from the network. As of March 15, 43% of surveyed voters approve of Trump's performance, while 51% disapprove.

Of the 43% of voters who approved, 30% said they "strongly approve," while 13% said they "somewhat approve."

Of the 51% who disapproved, 7% "somewhat disapproved" while 45% "strongly disapproved," the Fox News poll found.


In the February survey, 48% of people surveyed by Fox News said they approved of Trump's job performance and 47% disapproved.

Fox News poll: Heavy opposition to Trump on health care, travel ban

A top heavy majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump's handling of health care, with a similar majority opposing the president's revised ban on travel from six Muslim nations and temporary barring of Syrian refugees. ...

The Republicans' health care plan appears to be dragging down the party and its president.

Only 35 percent of those surveyed approve Trump's handling of health care: 55 percent disapprove.

More than half of voters, 54 percent, oppose the Republican health care plan, approved Thursday by a narrow 19-17 vote in the House Budget Committee. Just 34 percent favor the GOP's plan. A surprising 72 percent said they are at least somewhat familiar with the Republicans' plan.

The Affordable Care Act, as known as Obamacare, has seen a surge of support as Republicans plot how to dismantle it. Fifty percent have a favorable opinion of Obamacare, up from 38 percent two years ago. Forty-seven percent have a negative opinion.

The poll found a majority of voters, 54 percent, disapprove of Trump's revised travel crackdown, dubbed the "Muslim ban" by critics. No. 2, while 34 percent believe the new Executive Order would make America safer.

The Hill

Poll: Most support path to legal status for illegal immigrants

Nearly two-thirds of Americans say there should be a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants, according to a new poll, and only 26 percent think stopping border crossings should be the top immigration priority.

Sixty percent say a pathway for legal residency should be the government’s immigration priortiy in the CNN/ORC survey released Friday.

Thirteen percent said deporting illegal immigrants should instead be immigration priority No. 1. One percent had no opinion.

Pollsters report 58 percent worry deportation efforts will go too far by deporting people who have not committed serious crimes, compared to 40 percent who fear deportation efforts would be too lenient, letting dangerous criminals remain the U.S. untouched. Two percent had no response.

Twenty-seven percent said the government should deport all illegal immigrants, while by 71 percent disagree.


Adding:

Politico: Asked what should be done with undocumented immigrants who speak English, have jobs, are willing to pay back taxes and have been in the U.S. “for a number of years,” 90 percent of respondents said they would support legislation that allowed them to remain in the country and offered a path to U.S. citizenship. Support for such a policy had broad bipartisan support, backed by 96 percent of Democrats, 87 percent of Republicans and 89 percent of independents.

Young Americans: Most see Trump as illegitimate president

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jermaine Anderson keeps going back to the same memory of Donald Trump, then a candidate for president of the United States, referring to some Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers.

"You can't be saying that (if) you're the president," says Anderson, a 21-year-old student from Coconut Creek, Florida.

That Trump is undeniably the nation's 45th president doesn't sit easily with young Americans like Anderson who are the nation's increasingly diverse electorate of the future, according to a new poll. A majority of young adults — 57 percent — see Trump's presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of blacks and large majorities of Latinos and Asians, the GenForward poll found.

GenForward is a poll of adults age 18 to 30 conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

A slim majority of young whites in the poll, 53 percent, consider Trump a legitimate president, but even among that group 55 percent disapprove of the job he's doing, according to the survey.

Not a presidential approval poll per se, but significant nonetheless:

Germans who believe US is a trustworthy ally

November, 2016: 59%
February, 2017*: 22%

(Infratest Dimap)


* What would that percentage be if the poll were taken after yesterday's visit and this morning tweets? :yikes:

I don't think that Teh Donalds insistance on having been "tapped" on has improved his image, more that his head has been taking a tapping. Depending when the questions were asked, the vanishing Obamacare may already leave scars.

As you can see in the figure from 538 linked above, his approval rating hasn't really gotten below 40% and his disapproval rating hasn't gotten much above 50%. The media has really done some shitty reporting of Trump's approval numbers in my opinion --- yes, he was lower than any preceding incoming president, but there's still a lot lower for him to go (theoretically) and a sizable portion of Americans still approve of him. If this downward trend continues or intensifies then it might be significant, but I think Trump's approval ratings are mostly just another data-driven narrative being reported in a sensational rather than substantive way right now.

We need to be very careful of how we consume data if we wish to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. Right now this is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike something. Yes, Trump's approval is low, but not that low and there is no evidence that many people have changed their mind since the election. The more noise that is made out of relatively insignificant information, the less impact a truly important change will have (like, say, a 10% drop in a month).

I think this type of data analysis is really great at corroborating a narrative (hypothesis), but it has shown itself to be an unreliable vehicle to drive a narrative. If you want the data to produce valuable intelligence, then you need to look at simulations of bottom-up systems level modeling rather than top-down methods. In other words, you need to model the causes instead of the correlation. But that's not nearly as helpful if your goal is to get page hits.

I agree completely with this. My right wing friends show no sign of backing away from Despotus. They all spew back the current FOX/Breitbart/fill in the blank rebuttal for whatever has made the news.

Right now I am seeing a link to a Forbes article about how Obama cut Meals on Wheels (hint--he didn't, and it was a proposed freeze, not a cut). This is apparently proof that Despotus isn't as bad as President Obama.

It is actually slightly lower now. Use the top edge of a window to compare.

Newsweek

It's Not Just Trump: Poll Says His Cabinet and Other Republican Leaders Are Unpopular Too

Donald Trump has set record low approval ratings at this early stage of his presidency. But in the White House and the Republican leadership, Trump is far from alone in his unpopularity, a poll conducted by the Saint Leo University Polling Institute earlier this month has indicated. ...

Trump’s advisers have proven similarly unfavorable with Americans. Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, a controversial figure from the outset as a result of his time as publisher for Breitbart News, had an approval rating of 36 percent. Meanwhile, Kellyanne Conway, who has often been the public face of the campaign, had an approval rating of 37.2 percent, just marginally less than Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

The lowest approval rating, though, belonged to Betsy DeVos. Only 34.5 percent indicated that they approved of the Michigan billionaire, who required an unprecedented tiebreaking vote from Pence to confirm her as education secretary last month.

Despite controversy over his remarks about conversations with Russia’s ambassador during the election campaign, Attorney General Jeff Sessions had a higher rating, at 38 percent.

Only Defense Secretary Jim Mattis had a positive approval rating, standing at 53.9 percent. Perhaps that reflected the fact that a higher percentage of people approve of Trump’s handling of troops and the military than they do any other issue.

President Donald Trump is losing support among Republicans, white voters and men, leaving him with a negative 37 - 56 percent job approval rating from American voters, his worst score ever, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Republicans approve 81 - 14 percent, compared to 91 - 5 percent two weeks ago;
White voters disapprove 44 - 50 percent, compared to a narrow 49 - 45 percent approval March 7.
Disapproval is 60 - 31 percent among women, 90 - 6 percent among Democrats, 60 - 31 percent among independent voters and 75 - 16 percent among non-white voters.

American voters' opinions of some of Trump's personal qualities hit new lows:
60 - 35 percent that he is not honest, compared to 55 - 39 not honest March 7;
55 - 40 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
57 - 40 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
66 - 30 percent that he is not level-headed;
66 - 30 percent that he is a strong person;
59 - 36 percent that he is intelligent;

Poll: Most favor an independent commission to probe Trump-Russia ties

A majority of registered voters are in favor of an independent commission to investigate the potential ties between President Trump's campaign and the Russian government, a new poll finds.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey released on Friday, 66 percent of those polled favor an independent commission, and 29 percent do not.

Similarly, 65 percent consider Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election "very important" or "somewhat important."

The poll also found that 63 percent of registered voters are "somewhat" or "very" concerned about the president's relationship with Moscow.

According to the survey, a majority disapproves of the way Trump is handling Washington's policy toward Russia, 59 percent to 27 percent.

Gallup

Trump's Approval Rating Drops to New Low of 36%

President Donald Trump's job approval rating fell to 36% for the three-day period of March 24-26, following Republican House leaders' failed effort to pass a new healthcare bill that would have replaced the Affordable Care Act.

Trump's three-day reading prior to Friday's events was 41%. His previous low point was 37%, recorded March 16-18. His highest reading was 46% in the week following his Jan. 20 inauguration, and he has averaged 42% for his term to date.

Trump's current 36% is two percentage points below Barack Obama's low point of 38%, recorded in 2011 and 2014. Trump has also edged below Bill Clinton's all-time low of 37%, recorded in the summer of 1993, his first year in office, as well as Gerald Ford's 37% low point in January and March 1975. John F. Kennedy's lowest approval rating was 56%; Dwight Eisenhower's was 48%.

Presidents George W. Bush (lowest approval rating: 25%), George H.W. Bush (29%), Ronald Reagan (35%), Jimmy Carter (28%), Richard Nixon (24%), Lyndon Johnson (35%) and Harry Truman (22%) all had job approval ratings lower than 36% at least once during their administrations.
