Monmouth Poll: Trump approval rating jumps 10 points

President Trump’s job approval rating has spiked 10 points over the last month and Republicans have erased a double-digit deficit in the generic ballot for the House, according to a new poll.

The survey, conducted by Monmouth University, finds that 42 percent approve of the job Trump is doing, against 50 percent who say they disapprove. The same poll from December found Trump’s job approval at 32 percent, against 56 percent who said they disapproved. ...

The jump in the Monmouth survey appears to be driven by voter attitudes toward the GOP’s tax reform overhaul.

Forty-four percent say they approve of the new law and 44 percent say they disapprove. That’s up big from December, when only 26 percent said they approved and disapproval was at 47 percent. ...

Most voters still believe their taxes will go up under the new plan — 36 percent say they believe their taxes will rise, 32 percent said they expect their taxes will stay the same and only 24 percent believe their taxes will go down.

But that is a big improvement over December, when 50 percent believed their taxes would go up.
And the tax cuts for the middle class don't expire until sometime after the 2020 election. Imagine that.

Poll: 82 percent think Trump should testify under oath to Mueller

A vast majority of Americans say President Trump should agree to be interviewed under oath by special counsel Robert Mueller.

More than seven in 10 say Trump should agree to an interview, and if he does, 82 percent say it should be under oath, according to a new Monmouth University poll.

Seventy-one percent of respondents said that Trumps should agree to an interview, including 85 percent of Democrats, 74 percent of Independents and 51 percent of Republicans.

A majority of respondents from both parties agreed that an interview with Mueller should be under oath, with 93 percent of Democrats, 85 percent of Independents and 67 percent of Republicans agreeing.

"Democrats and Republicans alike say the president should sit down with Mueller, although they probably have very different reasons for wanting Trump to do this," Monmouth Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray said in a release.

Quinnipiac University
February 6, 2018 - Trump Trying To Derail Russia Probe, U.S. Voters Tell Quinnipiac University National Poll; Don't Shut Government Over Immigration, Voters Say 2-1

President Donald Trump has attempted to "derail or obstruct" the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, American voters say 53 - 41 percent in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

Voters are divided on whether Republicans in Congress are trying to derail or obstruct Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible links between President Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russian government as 46 percent say there is GOP obstruction and 44 percent say there is no obstruction, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Mueller's investigation is legitimate, 50 percent of voters say, as 42 percent say it is a "political witch hunt." In a separate question, voters say 56 - 28 percent the probe is "fair."

While there is an obvious partisan divide on these questions, independent voters say:
56 - 37 percent that Trump is attempting to derail the Russian investigation;
49 - 42 percent that Republicans in Congress are trying to derail the Russian probe;
54 - 39 percent that the investigation is legitimate rather than a witch hunt.
American voters approve 48 - 36 percent of the way the FBI is handling its job, compared to 46 - 38 percent in a January 13, 2017, Quinnipiac University Poll.

Poll: Most say they believe FBI over Trump

Two-thirds of Americans say they would side with the FBI in a disagreement with President Trump, according to a Marist poll released Friday.

Sixty-six percent of Americans surveyed said they would take the side of the FBI if a schism were to arise between the bureau and Trump, while only 24 percent said they would side with the president.

Seventy-one percent of respondents say they believe the FBI is trying to do its job and is not biased against the president, and 23 percent said they thought the bureau was biased against Trump.

UVA Center for Politics
Public Rates Presidents: Kennedy, Reagan, Obama at Top, Nixon, Johnson, Trump at Bottom

Ipsos/UVA Center for Politics poll measures views of recent chief executives at Presidents’ Day

As Americans prepare to celebrate Presidents’ Day, they rate John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan the best of recent chief executives, according to a new poll conducted by Ipsos in conjunction with the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

The Center for Politics and Ipsos collaborated to survey Americans’ views of modern presidents and asked them to rate the dozen presidents who have served since the early 1950s. The strong showings by Kennedy and Reagan reaffirm a previous Ipsos/Center for Politics survey from May 2017 that found them both with similarly high marks.

Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, the two most recent Democratic presidents, round out the top four, while the current president, Donald Trump, finds himself near the bottom of the ratings.

Obama, Reagan, and Kennedy received the most support from respondents when asked which recent president they wish was serving in the White House right now.
Adding:
Independent: Trump one of least popular presidents since polls began, while Obama one of the most liked, new survey finds ...

Voters also said Mr Obama was the president they would choose to be in the White House today, with nearly a third (31 per cent) wishing he was there ahead of Mr Reagan (22 per cent) and Mr Kennedy (16 per cent). Mr Trump rated fourth (9 per cent).

Trump takes last spot in experts' presidential rankings survey
President Trump has placed last among U.S. commanders in chief in a recent survey of experts.

The 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey asks respondents, each of them current and recent members of the Presidents and Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association, to rate each president on a scale of 0-100 for overall greatness.

Abraham Lincoln topped the list with an average score of 95.03, followed by George Washington with 92.59. The top seven slots remained unchanged from when the survey was conducted last in 2014.

Former President Obama placed eighth on the list, with an average score of 71.13, jumping 10 places from the previous survey.

Trump took the bottom slot with an average score of 12.34. Among those who identified as Republicans and conservatives, Trump ranked 40th.
...................
The survey was conducted from Dec. 22, 2017, to Jan. 16. It was based on responses from 170 experts.

And beneath a circular memorial in Marion, Ohio, the desiccated corpse of Warren G. Harding manages to crack the faintest smile.

Also, too, 40th out of 44 (remember, Cleveland counts for two slots) from the friendly part of the audience is just really pathetic.

Quinnipiac University
February 21, 2018 - American Voters Still Want To See Trump's Tax Returns, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Approval Dips Back Below 40 Percent

With tax season under way, American voters say 67 - 24 percent that President Donald Trump should publicly release his tax returns, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Every listed party, gender, education, age and racial group, except Republicans, says Trump should release his tax returns.

President Trump has not released his tax returns because he has something to hide, 52 percent of voters tell the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll. Another 19 percent say it's because he is being audited by the IRS and 14 percent don't believe either reason.

American voters give Trump a negative 37 - 58 percent approval rating, compared to a 40 - 55 percent rating February 7, in the wake of his State of the Union address. Republicans and white men are the only groups who approve. White voters with no college degree are divided at 47 percent approve and 45 percent disapprove.

Trump has not been loyal to his spouse throughout his marriage, American voters say 56 - 18 percent, with 26 percent undecided. Republicans are the only group to say Trump has been loyal.

Voters also say 66 - 30 percent, including 58 - 37 percent among men, that Trump does not respect women as much as he respects men. Again, Republicans are the only group taking Trump's side.

CBS News
Poll: Support for stricter gun laws rises; divisions on arming teachers

Nearly two-thirds of Americans support stricter laws on gun sales, including an increasing number of Republicans, but the public divides on the idea of allowing more teachers and school officials to carry guns. Arming teachers draws partisan splits, with Republicans in favor and Democrats opposed, a CBS News poll reveals. ...

Sixty-five percent of Americans now say laws covering the sale of guns should be stricter - an eight-point increase from December. It is the highest number recorded in this poll for stricter gun sale laws. The rise has been primarily among Republicans and independents, with a large increase among Republicans from last December. Democrats remain in favor.

Most Americans who are currently opposed to stricter gun sale laws say they'd be unpersuaded if President Trump decides to back stricter measures. Sixty-one percent say the president's stance would not make them more likely to back stricter laws if he took such a step. Seventeen percent say it would make them more likely to support stricter laws.

Forty-one percent of Republicans say they would follow Mr. Trump if he supported stricter laws, but most of these Republicans already favor stricter gun sale laws to begin with.

However, most Americans who support such stricter gun laws (59 percent) are pessimistic about the prospect of the president and Congress enacting them in the near future. A third are optimistic.

Mr. Trump gets mostly negative - and heavily partisan - marks for his handling of the Florida school shooting. Seven-in-ten Republicans approve while Democrats, and a plurality of Independents, do not.
Adding:

Business Insider
New poll shows majority of Americans want Congress to investigate Trump's contact with Russia

A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found 53% of Americans agreed Congress should investigate contact between Russia and President Donald Trump's inner circle believed to have happened before the election.

Only 25% of people who responded to the NBC/WSJ poll believed Congress should stay out of it, and 21% did not have an opinion, the poll found.

When broken down into different political parties, 80% of Democrats thought the Russia ties should be investigated, while 25% of Republicans believed the same.

When asked whether Congress should investigate Russia's attempts to interfere in the election generally, 54% of Americans agreed and 29% did not. Along party lines, the numbers nearly mirrored those of the first question. Eighty-four percent of Democrats said Congress should investigate election interference while only 25% of Republicans agreed.

USA Today
Poll: Americans support tougher gun laws, don't expect Congress to act

WASHINGTON — Americans overwhelmingly support tougher gun laws, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds, but they also overwhelmingly agree on this: Congress isn't likely to act anytime soon. ...

As President Trump sends mixed signals about what he'll support when it comes to gun legislation, his approval rating has fallen to its lowest level in the USA TODAY survey since he was inaugurated last year. Just 38% now approve of the job he's doing as president; 60% disapprove.

That's a steep drop from the president's standing one year ago, in March 2017, soon after his first address to Congress had received good reviews. Then, 47% expressed approval, a high-water mark for him in the poll; 44% expressed disapproval.

What's more, the intensity of feeling is hardening against the president. Now, the percentage who "strongly disapprove" of him is more than double the percentage who "strongly approve," 39% compared with 16%.
Adding:
FiveThirtyEight Poll Tracker today: 55.6% Disapprove; 39.1% Approve

CNN Poll: 6 in 10 concerned Trump isn't doing enough to protect US elections

Washington (CNN) About 6 in 10 Americans say Donald Trump is not taking seriously enough the investigation into Russian efforts to influence the US presidential election, and about the same share lack confidence the president is doing enough to prevent foreign interference in future elections, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.

Almost three-quarters (72%) say they are concerned about foreign government interference in US elections generally, including 90% of Democrats, 68% of independents and 53% of Republicans, and 60% say they are not confident the president is doing enough to prevent foreign countries from influencing future American elections.

The poll followed a stretch in which special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, including spreading false information on social media, organizing political events, and communicating with "unwitting" people tied to the Trump campaign and others in order to coordinate political activities. ...

Overall, 60% said they were not too or not at all confident in the President's efforts to keep foreign countries from influencing future US elections; 37% were very or somewhat confident. Beyond the president's efforts, few in the poll expressed confidence that Congress (37% confident) or tech companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter (32% confident) are doing enough to prevent future meddling.

Poll: Americans trust Mueller more than Trump on Russia

More Americans say they have trust in special counsel Robert Mueller than President Trump when it comes to the investigation into Russia election meddling, according to a survey released Monday.

The USA Today poll — which questioned 1,000 registered voters earlier this month after Mueller indicted 12 Russian nationals and three Russian groups over their alleged 2016 interference — found that 58 percent of voters have some or a lot of trust in Mueller’s investigation and 57 percent have little to no trust in Trump’s denials of Russian collusion.

However, neither Trump nor Mueller got high favorable ratings. Trump was at 34 percent favorable while Mueller got 37 percent.

Nearly 70 percent of those polled said they believe Moscow made serious effort to meddle in the 2016 elections but are fairly split on whether it had any effect on the outcome, with 44 percent saying it did not and 42 percent saying it did.

Three-fourths of respondents said the Kremlin will likely try to influence future American elections, and the same amount also said they take Mueller’s charges seriously. Only 20 percent said they do not view the charges as serious.

Some 60 percent said Trump is not doing enough to address the threat of future interference.

CNN poll: 8 in 10 back DACA, supporters hold Trump, GOP responsible for not extending program

Washington (CNN)Support for continuing the DACA program remains high and bipartisan, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, and about six in 10 Americans say it is likely that it will wind up continuing.

The poll, conducted before the Supreme Court declined Monday to immediately consider a case on the program, found that those who back continuing the program hold President Donald Trump (33%) and the Republicans in Congress (31%) responsible for it not yet having been extended more than they do the Democrats in Congress (17%).

A broad majority, 83%, favor continuing the Obama-era program, while 12% say it should be ended. Those figures have held roughly steady in CNN polling back to mid-September. The program has support from 94% of Democrats, 83% of independents and 67% of Republicans.

Overall, 61% say it's very or somewhat likely that the program will ultimately be continued. Republicans are more inclined to think the program will live on than are Democrats: 71% of Republicans say it's very or somewhat likely to continue, compared with 66% of independents and just 51% of Democrats.

Associated Press
AP-NORC Poll: Most Americans say Trump is racist

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than half of Americans, including large majorities of blacks and Hispanics, think President Donald Trump is a racist. More than half think his policies have made things worse for Hispanics and Muslims, and nearly half say they've made things worse for African Americans.

According to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 57 percent of Americans think Trump's policies have been bad for Muslims, and 56 percent think they've been bad for Hispanics. Forty-seven percent, including three-quarters of blacks, think they've been bad for African Americans.

Fifty-seven percent of all adults, including more than 8 in 10 blacks, three-quarters of Hispanics and nearly half of whites, said they think Trump is racist. Eighty-five percent of Democrats consider Trump racist, but just 21 percent of Republicans agree.

The results show a stark divide on racial issues gripping the country during the presidency of Trump, who has made divisive comments after a white nationalist rally, called African nations "shitholes," and promised to build a wall along the Mexican border to prevent immigrants from entering the country illegally. ...

Just over half of all Americans surveyed in the poll — 51 percent, including 79 percent of blacks and 44 percent of whites — think African Americans continue to face disadvantages to getting ahead in the U.S. That's compared with 22 percent who think blacks actually have advantages and 26 percent who think race makes no difference in getting ahead. Majorities also think Muslims (60 percent), immigrants (59 percent), LGBT people (52 percent) and Hispanics (51 percent) face disadvantages in American society, while close to half (45 percent) think women face similar hurdles. About 6 in 10 think whites and men have advantages over other groups.

Pew Research Center
Public Confidence in Mueller’s Investigation Remains Steady ...

A majority of Americans (61%) say they are very or somewhat confident Mueller will conduct a fair investigation; these views have changed only modestly since December.

While opinions about Mueller’s probe – and other issues related to Russia’s alleged election meddling – are divided along partisan lines, nearly half of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (46%) are very or somewhat confident Mueller will conduct a fair investigation. Democrats and Democratic leaners are overwhelmingly confident Mueller’s investigation will be fair (75% very or somewhat confident).

The latest national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted March 7-14 among 1,466 adults, finds the public is skeptical that the Trump administration will make a “serious effort” to prevent Russia from influencing future U.S. elections. (The survey was conducted before the administration’s March 15 announcement it was imposing sanctions on Russia in response to its interference in the 2016 campaign.)

About four-in-ten Americans (42%) are very or somewhat confident that the administration will make a serious effort to thwart Russian efforts to influence future elections. Most are not too confident (19%) or not at all confident (36%) the Trump administration will take serious action to prevent Russia from influencing future elections in this country.

The survey finds that the public is divided in opinions about the ultimate impact of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election: 48% say these efforts did not benefit either Trump or Hillary Clinton, while 43% say they benefited Trump. Very few Americans (4%) think Russian actions benefited Clinton.

Trump’s job approval has changed little in recent months. Currently, 39% approve of the way Trump is handling his job as president, while 54% disapprove. ...

HuffPo: Only Half Of Trump Voters Say Affair With Porn Actress Would Be Immoral:
The other half say it would not be or they are not sure.

Only about half of the people who voted for President Donald Trump say it would be immoral if he had an affair with pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels. The other half say it is not immoral, or they are not sure, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov survey published Tuesday.

Three-quarters of Trump voters also contend that, even if Daniels’ allegations are true, they are not relevant to Trump’s presidency. In fact, they claim to be barely concerned about a president’s private life at all: Seventy percent say an elected official who has committed an “immoral act” in his or her personal life can still behave ethically and fulfill duties in the public and professional sphere.
No word on what percentage of the president's supporters would be unconcerned if the president was an imaginary Muslim.

Only 30 percent are proud to have Trump as commander in chief; 50 percent are embarrassed.
