CBS News

Republicans blame bill, not Trump, for health care defeat ...

Republicans surveyed by CBS News pointed to an unpopular bill -- or the Democrats -- as the reason the Republican health care effort to repeal and replace Obamacare failed in Congress, not the president’s approach to meeting one his hallmark campaign promises.

In all, 49 percent of those surveyed said the Republican bill failed because it “just wasn’t popular,” while 41 percent of Republicans gave that response. Thirty-percent of Republicans said it didn’t pass because “Democrats didn’t compromise,” but only 14 percent of the entire group gave that response. ...

While 40 percent of respondents said they believed Russia had interfered in the election process with the intention of helping Mr. Trump win, only 13 percent of Republicans agreed with that assessment. Among Democrats, 67 percent said the Russian meddling was aimed at helping Mr. Trump.

Most Democrats and independents feel it is at least somewhat likely that Trump associates had improper contact with the Russian government. Three-quarters of Republicans, however, say they don’t see that as likely.

Almost two-thirds of the Americans surveyed by CBS News say the FBI should investigate the claimed links between the Trump campaign and Russia. Most Democrats and Independents say so, and just over one-third of Republicans do as well.

Monmouth University Polling Institute

POTUS Less Trusted Than Media, “Fake News” Comes From All Sources ...

A number of polls have compared public trust of the president and the media. The Monmouth University Poll took a different approach by pitting Pres. Trump directly against three individual outlets that received the highest and lowest credibility ratings among television news sources in a recent Morning Consult poll. Trump is trusted less than each of these three outlets, from the one seen as most credible - ABC News - to those perceived as least credible - Fox News and MSNBC.

Only 28% of Americans are more likely trust Trump as an information source compared to ABC news while most (53%) say they would tend to trust ABC more, with 15% saying they would trust both sides equally. When pitted against MSNBC, 33% trust Trump more while 47% trust the liberal leaning cable channel more, with 15% trusting both about equally. When pitted against Fox News, only 17% trust Trump more while 37% trust the politically conservative news outlet more, with 36% trusting both about equally.

The story is different, though, when isolating the views of Republicans. Americans who identify as GOP partisans are more likely to have confidence in Trump over any of the news sources tested in the poll. This is especially true for MSNBC - Trump is more trusted by a 66% to 16% margin - and ABC News - Trump is more trusted by a 56% to 22% margin. The president even has a slight, although statistically insignificant, 29% to 26% trust advantage over Fox News among his fellow partisans, with 44% of Republicans saying they trust both equally as an information source. ...

The poll also tested the three media sources against one another and found that ABC is more trusted than either Fox (44% to 32%) or MSNBC (36% to 18%). Fox and MSNBC are tied (39% to 39%) when they are pitted against one another on the trust metric. Not surprisingly, Republicans trust Fox (67%) more than MSNBC (10%) while Democrats trust MSNBC (67%) more than Fox (19%) by a similar margin. However, while Republicans put more credence in information they get from Fox (65%) over ABC (16%), Democrats actually give ABC (41%) the edge over MSNBC (25%) when it comes to trust in the information each news outlet provides.

"Trust in the media is really dependent on the source. It is interesting that Democrats are more likely to give a credibility edge to an outlet that is seen as more mainstream over one whose political perspective is more in line with their own. Most Republicans, on the other hand, seem to assume that every source that isn't conservative must, by definition, have a liberal bias and is therefore less trustworthy. There doesn't seem to be a middle ground for them," said Murray.

What's funny is that's kind of where I would have guessed the trust would fall out -- and I'm surprised to be right. I think I thought I was biased against the conservative mindset in my evaluating of where they* stood.

*Obviously they are individuals and it is nuanced.

Talking Points Memo

Donald Trump's Approval Rating Continues To Nosedive

President Donald Trump’s approval rating continued to drop Wednesday in Gallup’s daily presidential poll.

According to the polling company, 35 percent of respondents approved of Trump’s performance in office, down from the 36 percent approval published on Monday and Tuesday. Fifty-nine percent of respondents disapproved of his performance, beating the previous high of 57 percent on March 18.

Trump’s net approval is now at negative 24 percent, down from record of negative 21 percent set on March 18.

Gallup arrives at its numbers by averaging its previous three days of polling. Wednesday’s numbers reflect polling conducted since Sunday, two days after House Republican leadership pulled a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, citing lack of support within their own caucus.

Poll: Americans dislike GOP's, Trump's plan on health care

WASHINGTON (AP) — Note to President Donald Trump and House Republicans: People really don't like your approach to overhauling America's health care. If you're hoping to revive the effort, you may want to try something different.

Sixty-two percent of Americans turned thumbs down on Trump's handling of health care during the initial weeks of his presidency, according to a poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research released Wednesday. It was his worst rating among seven issues the poll tested, including the economy, foreign policy and immigration.

Of six changes the failed House GOP bill would have made to President Barack Obama's law, five drew more negative than positive reviews.

An overwhelming 8 in 10 opposed the Republican proposal to let insurers boost premiums on older people. Seven in 10 disapproved of premium surcharges for people whose coverage lapses.

By wide margins, people also disliked proposed cuts in Medicaid, which helps lower-earning people cover medical costs, a halt in federal payments to Planned Parenthood and a transformation of the Obama law's subsidies — based on income and premium costs — into aid linked to age.

CNBC

Majority of Americans think Trump's doing a poor job and the country is headed in the wrong direction: Poll

President Donald Trump's job approval ratings are taking a hit this week, on the heels of the Republicans' inability to pass a health-care reform bill.

Trump's job approval stands at just 42 percent, according to an NBC News|SurveyMonkey Poll. A majority of individuals polled — 56 percent — said they disapprove of the job he is doing in the White House. Trump's net approval rating is now negative 14, down 3 points from negative 11 last month.



The poll also found that most of the respondents, or 61 percent, feel the country is headed in the wrong direction. That's up from 57 percent of respondents polled a month ago.

The poll began gathering data on Friday — just after the GOP's health-care bill was yanked from a scheduled House vote — through Tuesday. The decision to withdraw the bill, which was backed by Speaker Paul Ryan, delays one of Trump's main campaign promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

Thirty-eight percent said they were paying "very close" attention to the health-care news, and another 38 percent said they were watching "somewhat closely."

Salon

Something in common: Donald Trump, Paul Ryan’s approval ratings are both sinking

President Donald Trump is known to tweet through his failures as a way to reassure the American people. “Do not worry, we are in very good shape!” Trump wrote on Monday after withdrawing the American Health Care Act last week for a lack of congressional support. But according to a new poll, approval for both Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan are not in good shape, and in fact, have hit record lows since Trump’s election to office.

As reported by Public Policy Polling, Trump has an approval rate of 40 percent, while 53 percent disapprove of his performance.

But the numbers are even worse for Ryan, who currently has a 21 percent approval rate, and 61 percent disapproval rate.

But something did see a spike in its approval rate. Support for the Affordable Care Act rose to 52 percent, thanks to the long debate over the law’s merits. The American Health Care Act has an approval rate of only 23 percent.

McClatchy

Americans’ opposition to repealing Obamacare grows, particularly among Republicans

WASHINGTON

A growing majority of Americans – including a sharply increasing number of Republicans – oppose an outright repeal of Obamacare, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll, signaling trouble for Republicans still hoping to dismantle the 2010 health care law.

Efforts to repeal and replace the law collapsed last week, after GOP lawmakers couldn’t agree on an alternative health care system.

Sixty-five percent of registered voters either want to see the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, maintained as is or strengthened, a seven-point uptick over a February McClatchy-Marist poll that asked the same question. The new poll was conducted between March 22 and 27. Republicans ended last week’s effort to pass a health care plan on March 24.

Among Republicans, support for repeal plunged. Fifty-seven percent said Obamacare should be completely repealed, but that’s an 11 point drop since the February McClatchy-Marist Poll. ...

The numbers against repeal dwarfed those who support weakening or completely doing away with the law. Twenty-six percent of registered voters responded they wanted Obamacare repealed all together, with another 7 percent saying they want it amended to do less.

Business Insider

Survey finds nearly a third of voters give Trump an 'F' for his job performance so far ...

A McClatchy-Marist poll published on Friday found one in three respondents gave Trump an "F" for his performance thus far as commander-in-chief. ...

So far, 38% of registered voters said they approved of Trump's performance, while 51% said they disapproved, McClatchy reported. Trump is down 3 percentage points since mid-February — which equates to a substantially lower approval rating than other presidents in the past.

Republican voters, Trump's primary base, approved of his performance by 79-10%, while independent voters approved by 34-52%. Only 9% of surveyed Democrats approved of Trump's job performance, with 84% disapproving.

Trump's job performance and policies were not the only trait that was viewed unfavorably. The poll found that 59% of voters surveyed were embarrassed by Trump's conduct as president. About 31% said his conduct made them proud, while 9% said they were unsure.

Additionally, 70% viewed Trump's habitual use of Twitter as problematic — which includes 45% of Republicans and 75% of surveyed independents. About 19% found his tweets effective and informative.

AP-NORC Poll: Majority of Americans favor Russia probe

NEW YORK (AP) — A slim majority of Americans favor an independent investigation into the Trump campaign's ties with the Russian government, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research that showed public views about the controversy driving congressional investigations are sharply divided along party lines.

Amid questions swirling in Washington that have forced the resignation of one top Trump official and the scrutiny of several others, most Americans say they're at least somewhat concerned about the possibility that the Republican businessman's campaign had inappropriate contacts with the Russian government, but less than half say they're very concerned.

More than three-quarters of Democrats favor an independent investigation into Trump's Russian ties while only one-quarter of Republicans do. Overall, 52 percent of Americans favor such a probe, while 23 percent are opposed. Another 22 percent say they neither favor nor oppose an investigation. Asked if they favor an independent investigation into the issue of Moscow's meddling in the 2016 campaign, Americans broke along similar margins. ...

According to the poll, 44 percent of Americans say they're very or extremely concerned that Trump or others involved in his campaign had inappropriate contacts with the Russian government. Another 18 percent say they're somewhat concerned, and 36 percent say they're not very concerned or not concerned at all. ...

On the whole, Americans are far less likely to see a need for an investigation into Trump's wiretapping accusations — 35 percent in favor to 38 percent opposed. But that again was starkly divided along party lines. Nearly half of Republicans but less than a third of Democrats or independents, favor an investigation.

Trump Approval Plunges Amid Russia Inquiry, ObamaCare Repeal Failure

Just 34% of the public approve of the job President Trump is doing, as his support among Republicans and independents tumbles, according to the April IBD/TIPP poll. Fifty six percent disapprove of the job he's doing. Approval ratings for a president haven't been this low since President Bush's last months in office.

Last month, 40% of independents approved of the job Trump is doing; just 29% approve today. Among Republicans, Trump's job approval is 74%, which represents a 14-point decline from last month. ...

He lost significant support among his strongest backers: white men (which dropped from 58% in March to 49% today), and rural America, which went from 56% to 41% today.

Just over a third (37%) rate Trump's handling of the economy as "good" or "excellent," which is down from 43% last month. Only a quarter of those polled give him top marks on his handling of health care.

And 35% now say that Trump is providing strong leadership for the country, compared with 49% who say it is weak.

Politico

Poll: 55 percent of Americans approve of Obamacare

A majority of Americans approve of the Affordable Care Act, former President Barack Obama’s health care law, for the first time since the polling firm Gallup began asking the question in November 2012.

Fifty-five percent of people surveyed by Gallup said they support the law, while 41 percent disapprove of it, according to poll results released Tuesday. That’s an uptick from the 42 percent of Americans who supported it last November, after President Donald Trump was elected.

And asked about the law’s future, a plurality, 40 percent, told Gallup they would like to keep the law but make “significant changes” to it; 30 percent would like it to be repealed, and 26 percent want to keep it as is.

The survey was conducted on April 1 and 2, after House Republicans tried and failed to repeal Obamacare and replace it with an alternative. The proposal, which Trump has publicly supported, was pulled from the House floor after GOP leaders realized they did not have the support to pass it.

I don't think we have any evidence that that has ever occurred to him or that he is capable of thinking along those lines. What we do have evidence (his words and actions over forty years) is that he wants to make as many people as possible fear him and pay for what he perceives they've done to him (which includes being born).

Agreed I think the idea of sending people to war and knowing that he is sending a certain number of men and women to their deaths appeals to him. Maximum chaos and pain. Absolute power and all that.
