NBC News
NBC/WSJ Poll: Just 29 Percent Approve of Trump’s Firing of James Comey

Just 29 percent of Americans say they approve of President Donald Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, while 38 percent disapprove, according to results from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Another 32 percent of respondents don't have enough to say on the matter.

Yet among those who say they have read, seen or heard "a lot" about the firing, 53 percent say they disapprove, versus 33 percent who approve. ...

Trump's job-approval rating stands at 39 percent, which is one point lower than last month's NBC/WSJ survey — well within the poll's margin of error. ...

A combined 65 percent say they have a "great deal" of confidence or "some" confidence in the FBI's ability to conduct a fair and impartial investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election, versus a combined 40 percent who say the same of Congress.

And asked if they prefer Congress or an independent commission or special prosecutor to investigate Russia's involvement, just 15 percent pick Congress, while 78 percent support an independent commission or special prosecutor.

Voters Describe Trump As ‘Idiot’ and ‘Liar’ in Disastrous New Poll
By Adam K. Raymond

Over the last week, Quinnipiac University asked Americans for the first word that comes to mind when they think of President Trump. The answer given more times than any other was “idiot,” followed by “incompetent” and “liar.”

Image

Given the above sentiment, there’s little surprise that Trump is down to a 36 percent approval rating in the university’s latest national poll. The mark sits just one percentage point above the 35 percent approval rating he got on April 4, his lowest since taking office.

It’s not [/img]just[/img] the approval rating. Every number in this poll is bad. The majority of Americans say Trump is “not honest,” lacks leadership skills, doesn’t care about average Americans, is not “level-headed,” and does not share their values. On the economy, immigration, foreign policy, and terrorism, more Americans disapprove than approve of the job he’s doing.

Same question in the Quinnipiac poll in August 2015 about the candidates. First word people came up with about Jeb Bush was... "Bush." :rotflmao:

I've seen purported responses for Presidents Obama and Bush 43, but not official ones.

The Hill
Poll: Most want ‘independent’ probe of Trump, Russia

Most U.S. adults want an “independent investigation” of possible ties between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia, according to a new poll.

Sixty percent agree that Congress should launch such a probe in a Reuters/Ipsos survey released Monday.

Forty percent of that total “strongly” agree that the investigation should focus on “communications between the Russian government and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.” ...

Pollsters found that 36 percent think “a combination of reasons” was behind Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey last week.

Thirty-four percent said Trump was concerned with Comey’s investigation of his administration’s ties to Russia.

The Hill
Poll: 48 percent want Trump impeached

More Americans want President Trump impeached than don't, according to a new survey by Public Policy Polling released Tuesday.

Forty-eight percent of respondents said they would support Trump's impeachment, while only 41 percent would oppose such charges. ...

The results align closely with Trump's current approval rating. The poll found 40 percent approve of the job the president is doing, and 54 percent disapprove.

Trump is not currently facing impeachment charges.

Still, only 43 percent said Trump will end up serving his full four-year term in office. Slightly more — 45 percent — said his presidency won't make it that long. ...

The poll found that more than three quarters of voters — 77 percent — expect the president's spokespeople to tell the truth at all times. By comparison, only 14 percent expect otherwise.

Politico
Poll: Trump approval rating hits new low

Donald Trump’s approval rating is at a new low — and that's before claims that he disclosed sensitive information to Russian officials in the Oval Office and tried to shut down an FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, conducted after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey but before the two latest blockbuster revelations, shows Trump’s approval rating at 42 percent, with half of registered voters disapproving of the job Trump is doing as president. In the previous poll, conducted last Tuesday through Thursday, 46 percent of voters approved of Trump’s job performance, and 47 percent disapproved.

Even more strikingly, twice as many voters “strongly disapprove” of Trump (38 percent) compared to those who strongly approve (19 percent). A 64-percent majority of Democrats strongly disapprove of Trump, but only 43 percent of Republicans strongly approve. Just 42 percent of self-identified Trump voters in last year's election strongly approve of his job performance, while 70 percent of those who said they voted for Hillary Clinton last fall strongly disapprove of Trump.

Trump’s approval rating overall remains high with Republicans, however, despite the dampened enthusiasm. Seventy-nine percent of GOP voters approve of the job he is doing, while only 16 percent disapprove. That’s a mirror image of Trump’s approval rating among Democratic voters: 15 percent approve, versus 79 percent who disapprove.

Independent voters tilt against Trump, however: Only 39 percent approve of the job Trump is doing, compared with 50 percent who disapprove. ...

The percentage of voters who said Trump was right to remove Comey as FBI director, 34 percent, is virtually unchanged from the 35 percent who previously said Trump did the right thing. But the percentage who said Trump should have allowed Comey to continue leading the FBI increased from 33 percent in the initial survey to 40 percent now. Around a quarter, 26 percent, are undecided, down from 32 percent in the previous poll.

http://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz ... -to-betray?
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—House Speaker Paul Ryan has set a Google News alert to notify him of the instant that Donald Trump becomes unpopular enough to turn against, Ryan revealed on Thursday.

The news alert, which Ryan said was set to the phrase “Trump approval rating falls below fifty per cent among Republican voters,” will inform the House Speaker of the precise moment “that I can bail on President Trump at no political cost to me,” Ryan explained.

“There’s this sense out there in the media that Washington is consumed by drama and nothing is getting done,” Ryan told reporters. “I think it’s important for people to know that important things are, in fact, getting done, and setting this Google News alert is one of those things.”

Asked by a reporter when he anticipated turning on Trump, Ryan dismissed that as a hypothetical question, adding, “There is no timetable for my inevitable betrayal of him. Once I receive that Google News alert, it will most likely happen a split second after that.”

Ryan ended his press conference by reassuring the American people that he is hard at work for them. “I am checking my phone every ten—and sometimes every five—minutes,” he said.

538 (remember that site?) has a daily approval tracker.

This president had his highest approval rating on day 6, at 47.8%; he has never had 50% (or more) approval rating.

The last day this president had a positive net approval (approval less disapproval) was day 13.


In contrast, Obama's worst approval rating (40.9%) was on day 1771 of his presidency (November 2013). This president was already below that point this last Monday, and has since dropped even further.

CNN
Poll: Most Americans think Trump fired Comey over Russia investigation

Washington (CNN)A majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week in an effort to slow down or stop the investigation into the Trump campaign's ties with Russia, according to a new Monmouth University Poll out Thursday.

Nearly six in 10 Americans think it's likely that Trump dismissed Comey to hinder the investigation, the poll found. Just 20% believe the Trump administration's initial explanation that the firing was due to the way Comey handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. The poll finds 50% disapprove of Trump's firing of Comey while 36% approve.

The findings come on the heels of slipping approval ratings for the president. The president's job rating currently stands at 39% approval. Just two months ago, Trump's approval was 43%. ...

Trump's biggest decline came among people in swing counties -- 300 total where the winning margin between Clinton and Trump was in the single digits. In those counties, Trump's rating dropped from 41% approval and 46% disapproval in March to 34% approval and 54% disapproval now.

A big majority of those polled -- 73% -- say the investigation into connections between Trump and Russia should continue.

Morning Consult
Trump’s Approval Sinks Further Amid Avalanche of Bad Headlines

Political observers have said it’s been a very bad week for President Donald Trump, and that notion is underscored by a new Morning Consult/POLITICO survey that shows his support continues to decline as many voters expressed concern about his fitness for office. ...

Trump’s approval among voters reached a new low for the third time this month, with 41 percent saying they still approve of his job performance and 53 percent disapproving — a 4-point drop in his net approval rating from the previous poll. About two in five said they strongly disapproved of the president, while 42 percent of the voters who helped elect Trump in November said they still strongly approve of him.

Reports that Trump disclosed very sensitive classified material obtained from a Middle East ally regarding the threat of a terrorist attack was widely seen by voters: 84 percent said they’d heard “a lot” or “some” about the disclosure. A majority of voters (58 percent) called the disclosure inappropriate, including 85 percent of Democrats, 59 percent of independents and 27 percent of Republicans.

White House officials have denied the story, accusing those who leaked the information of compromising national security interests. But a plurality of voters (44 percent) said those officials were right to leak the information to the media, arguing that it was necessary to alert our international allies and the public about major breaches in national security protocol.

Half of voters also said that Trump’s reported request that Comey end the Flynn investigation was inappropriate, compared with 28 percent who said it was appropriate. While 77 percent of Democrats and 49 percent of independents said it was inappropriate, 54 percent of Republicans thought it was fine for Trump to make such a request.

A majority of Americans also appear to have concerns about Trump’s fitness for office. Most voters (52 percent) said they weren’t confident in President Trump’s ability to keep the country safe from terrorism and 50 percent said he wasn’t “able to serve as commander-in-chief.” The president also scored poorly on issues of trust, character and other considerations for his aptitude to lead the country.

Reuters
Approval of President Trump drops to lowest since inauguration: Reuters/Ipsos poll

(Reuters) - Public approval of President Donald Trump has dropped to its lowest level since his inauguration, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday, after Trump was accused of mishandling classified information and meddling with an FBI investigation.

The May 14-18 opinion poll found that 38 percent of adults approved of Trump while 56 percent disapproved. The remaining 6 percent had "mixed feelings."

Americans appear to have soured on Trump after a tumultuous week in the White House during which the president fought back a steady drumbeat of critical news reports that ramped up concerns about his administration’s ties to Russia. ...

While Trump remains popular with members of his own party, many rank-and-file Republicans appear to have backed off their support for the president during the past week.

Among Republicans, 23 percent expressed disapproval of Trump in the latest poll, up from 16 percent in the same poll last week. The decline in support from Republicans appears to be a primary reason why Trump's overall approval rating is now at the lowest level since he took office.

W and Tricky Dick set the disapproval bar pretty high, though it took them a while to do so. Trump might not be able to beat that in the hyper-partisan era.

Someone or several someones must be keeping a very tight rein on Trump on this trip, not even allowing him the odd malignant tweet to let off steam. All that fake adulation in Saudi Arabia helps, of course, but other countries aren't going to provide that billowy pillow of lies and aren't going to give Ivanka $100 million bucks. I think it's early days, especially if more damning news from home filters through to him.

New York Times OpEd - David Leonhardt
The Young Flee the G.O.P. ...

Ross Douthat has mentioned that Donald Trump may be a “disjunctive” president, much as Jimmy Carter was. A disjunctive president straddles political eras. He can often diagnose a core affliction in his political party, but can’t fully fix it — which means that his presidency ends up looking like a failed pause before a new era.

A fascinating series of polls from the Pew Research Center offers support for the Theory of Disjunction (originated by the political scientist Stephen Skowronek). After surveying Americans periodically over the 15 months since the 2016 campaign began, Pew has found that one demographic group has been much more likely than any other to switch its party identification: Republicans under the age of 30.

“Among those under 30 who initially identified as Republicans or leaned Republican in December 2015, 23% shifted to the Democratic Party,” Pew reported this week. The average switch rate for other groups was just above 10 percent. Not surprisingly, many of the people who stopped identifying as Republicans also held negative views about Trump.

These millenials are the flip side of Trump’s success in attracting white working-class voters who’d previously stayed home or voted Democratic. He has done so in part by aligning the Republican Party more closely with white nationalism, which played a role in his huge victory margins in older, less metropolitan America.

Quinnipiac University National Poll
May 24, 2017 - American Voters Believe Trump Is Abusing His Powers, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Job Approval Remains At Historic Low

American voters believe 54 - 43 percent that President Donald Trump is abusing the powers of his office, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

President Trump gets a negative 37 - 55 percent job approval rating, compared to a negative 36 - 58 percent approval in a May 10 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University. Today, voters over 65 years old, divided in earlier surveys, now disapprove 53 - 42 percent. Trump has a negative 36 - 54 percent approval among independent voters, an improvement from his negative 29 - 63 percent two weeks ago.

The president is under water among every party, gender, educational, age and racial group except Republicans, who approve 84 - 13 percent; white voters with no college degree, who approve 52 - 40 percent, and white men who are split 47 - 46 percent. ...

"But by far the most alarming determination is that President Trump is abusing his office."

Voters do believe 55 - 27 percent that Trump asked Comey to drop the FBI investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

The matter should be investigated by the U.S. House of Representatives, voters say 62 - 33 percent.

American voters support 66 - 30 percent the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into possible ties between Trump campaign advisors and the Russian government.

A total of 68 percent of voters say alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election is a "very important" or "somewhat important" issue.

The Hill
Trump and Pence hit new lows in Fox poll

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are facing the lowest approval ratings since the inauguration, according to a new Fox News poll.

More than half of voters, 53 percent, disapprove of the job Trump is doing, compared to just 40 percent who approve. Pence's numbers are slightly higher, with a 42 percent approval rating and 43 percent disapproving.

Those numbers are a significant drop from their ratings in a similar Fox News poll last month. It found that 45 percent of voters approved of President Trump's job performance, and 50 percent approved of Pence's.

The approval numbers mirror how voters feel about the House GOP's latest effort to repeal ObamaCare, the poll shows. Forty percent of Americans approve of the Republican effort to replace the Affordable Care Act, while 53 percent are opposed. More than half of all voters, 53 percent, also said ObamaCare has so far been a net benefit for the country.

Pollsters also found that despite the news media's focus on the investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, voters are most strongly concerned about government spending, with 80 percent saying they were very concerned. Other top issues included infrastructure repair, North Korea, and the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

FiveThirtyEight
Donald Trump's Base Is Shrinking

A widely held tenet of the current conventional wisdom is that while President Trump might not be popular overall, he has a high floor on his support. Trump’s sizable and enthusiastic base — perhaps 35 to 40 percent of the country — won’t abandon him any time soon, the theory goes, and they don’t necessarily care about some of the controversies that the “mainstream media” treats as game-changing developments.

It’s an entirely reasonable theory. We live in a highly partisan epoch, and voters are usually loyal to politicians from their party. Trump endured a lot of turbulence in the general election but stuck it out to win the Electoral College. The media doesn’t always guess right about which stories will resonate with voters.

But the theory isn’t supported by the evidence. To the contrary, Trump’s base seems to be eroding. There’s been a considerable decline in the number of Americans who strongly approve of Trump, from a peak of around 30 percent in February to just 21 or 22 percent of the electorate now. (The decline in Trump’s strong approval ratings is larger than the overall decline in his approval ratings, in fact.) Far from having unconditional love from his base, Trump has already lost almost a third of his strong support. And voters who strongly disapprove of Trump outnumber those who strongly approve of him by about a 2-to-1 ratio, which could presage an “enthusiasm gap” that works against Trump at the midterms. The data suggests, in particular, that the GOP’s initial attempt (and failure) in March to pass its unpopular health care bill may have cost Trump with his core supporters.

These estimates come from the collection of polls we use for FiveThirtyEight’s approval ratings tracker. Many approval-rating polls give respondents four options: strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove and strongly disapprove. Ordinarily, we only estimate Trump’s overall approval and disapproval. But we went back and collected this more detailed data for all polls for which it was available, and then we reran our approval ratings program to output numbers for all four approval categories instead of the usual two.1 Here are Trump’s strongly approve and somewhat approve ratings from shortly after the start of his term2 through this Tuesday.

I guess the failure to pass a healthcare bill (referred to in the five-thirty-eigh piece in Addie's post) could be a real downer. Because we're not f***ing stupid here, we know that any Trump/Republican healthcare bill would be a pile of raccoon feces, but put yourself in the position of a Trump supporter* who loathes Obamacare for whatever reason. The Trump supporter was promised change, and any change that hasn't actually happened can be imagined to be great, fantastic, wonderful (just like the cake you haven't baked would have been sooo tasty). We know it would have been crap, but that's not the point.

So no healthcare bill is a huge failure of delivery, it looks massively incompetent. And with Republicans in power everywhere, even a Trump supporter can understand which party is to blame. Even a Trump supporter can see that a Republican president with a Republican majority cannot reasonably expect Democrats to support the overturn of keynote legislation. Yeah, it's that simple.

Well, Ann Coulter is waiting for her wall.

Her vitriol shocks and alarms me. Maybe I have some of the Southern Belle "stab them in the back when they aren't looking but smile to their face" operating at a ssubconscious level even after 30+years of law practice and more years than that trying to rid myself of its hypocrisy.
