With the disasters Harvey and Irma, and his meetings with Pelosi and Schumer, I expected his numbers to go up. But Trump will always be Trump. I suspect they'll start falling again with this past week's debacles.

New theory: someone told Drumpf how impressive it was to have all-time record net disapproval numbers. So every time he sees that number drop he tries to do something to make it more bigly again.

Politico
Poll: Majority disapprove of Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill

A majority of Americans reached by a new poll released Monday said they disapprove of Republican legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, while less than 10 percent said they believed the GOP proposal would help them.

Fifty-two percent of respondents to the CBS poll released Monday morning said they disapprove of the repeal-and-replace legislation authored by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.). Just 20 percent of those polled said they approve of Republican efforts overall to undo former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law. ...

While Republicans are scrambling to make good on their long-held campaign promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, most respondents to the CBS poll said they would rather see the law remain in place or improved. Seventy-four percent of those polled said either that Obamacare should be left as-is or that it has some good provisions but is in need of some changes, while roughly one-in-four said Obamacare has so much wrong with it that it should be done away with entirely.

Of the 32 percent of those polled who said they believe the Graham-Cassidy bill would affect them personally, 25 percent said they believe it would hurt them. Just 7 percent responded that they believe the GOP proposal would help them.

ABC News
Americans back DACA by a huge margin (POLL)

A vast 86 percent of Americans support a right to residency for undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children, with support crossing the political spectrum. Two-thirds back a deal to enact such legislation in tandem with higher funding for border control.

Possibly in light of President Donald Trump’s decision to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, disapproval of his handling of immigration overall reaches 62 percent in this ABC News/Washington Post poll. Just 35 percent approve.

Additional hurdles for Trump are his demand for a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico -- again 62 percent oppose it -- and substantial concerns about his immigration enforcement policies.

Americans were asked whether they support “a program that allows undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States if they arrived here as a child, completed high school or military service and have not been convicted of a serious crime,” all elements of DACA, established by Barack Obama by executive order in 2012. Support spans demographic groups, including three-quarters of Republicans and conservatives, 86 and 87 percent of independents and moderates, and 97 and 96 percent of Democrats and liberals.

Support reaches 94 percent among Hispanics, 93 percent among blacks and 84 percent among whites. Strong support, 87 percent among Hispanics and 85 percent among blacks, declines among whites to 61 percent.

ABC News
Two-thirds say large corporations pay too little in federal taxes (POLL)

Cutting corporate taxes looks like a hard sell for Donald Trump and Republican Party leaders -- a new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 65 percent of Americans feel large corporations pay too little in taxes.

Given what the public knows about it, they opposes Trump’s tax plan by 44-28 percent, with a substantial 28 percent undecided. Half of those polled expect the administration’s plan to reduce taxes on the wealthy, while just 10 percent think it’ll reduce taxes on the middle class. A quarter expect equal treatment.

See PDF with full results here.

A tax break for the wealthy would be out of step with public opinion. Overall, a broad 78 percent favor trimming income taxes on middle-and lower-income Americans, while just 33 percent support reducing taxes on higher-income individuals. The public splits when it comes to cutting taxes paid by businesses in general -- 45-48 percent, support-oppose. ...

Seventy-three percent in this poll, produced for ABC News by Langer Research Associates, also say the current tax system favors the wealthy, up 5 points since 2012; 55 percent feel that way strongly. Just 5 percent say the tax system favors the middle class, down 4 points. Seventeen percent say it treats both groups about equally.

Shocker! NBC Poll on Trump's Approval Rating With Millennials is Absolutely Brutal

The latest NBC polling on President Donald Trump’s approval rating amongst millennials is out — and, unsurprisingly, the president is not doing so hot.

Overall, Trump has a 64% disapproval and 21% approval amongst all millennials. He fares even worse with African Americans (79% disapproval, 13% approval), Asian Americans (78%-11%) and Latinos (77%-11%).

He does somewhat better amongst whites, with 53% disapproval and 30% approval.

The poll surveys adults age 18-34 in various demographics, and was previewed on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Wednesday.

September 27, 2017 - Trump Is Not Fit To Be President, American Voters Say, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Voters Disapprove 2-1 Of His Handling Of Race Relations

President Donald Trump is not "fit to serve as president," American voters say 56 - 42 percent, and voters disapprove 57 - 36 percent of the job he is doing as president, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

There are deep party, gender and racial divisions on whether President Trump is fit to serve, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds:
Trump is not fit, Democrats say 94 - 5 percent and independent voters say 57 - 40 percent. Republicans say 84 - 14 percent that he is fit.

Men are divided 49 - 49 percent, as women say 63 - 35 percent he is not fit.

White voters are divided as 50 percent say he is fit and 48 percent say he is not fit. Trump is not fit, black voters say 94 - 4 percent and Hispanic voters say 60 - 40 percent.
American voters disapprove 62 - 32 percent of the way President Trump is handling race relations. Disapproval is 55 - 39 percent among white voters, 95 - 3 percent among black voters and 66 - 28 percent among Hispanic voters. President Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite the country, American voters say 60 - 35 percent.

The anti-Twitter sentiment remains high as voters say 69 - 26 percent that Trump should stop tweeting. No party, gender, education, age or racial group wants to follow the Tweeter-in- Chief. Voters say 51 - 27 percent they are embarrassed to have Trump as president.

Fox News Poll: Voters say Trump talk not helpful on Iran, North Korea

By more than two-to-one, voters think the best way to stop North Korea from continuing work on nuclear weapons is through diplomacy rather than threats of military action, and most say the way President Trump talks about North Korea isn’t helpful. ...

A new Fox News poll finds voters don’t think this helps the situation: 70 percent say the way Trump talks about North Korea is not helpful. Just 23 percent think it helps. ...

On the best way to stop North Korea from continuing its nuclear program, more than twice as many voters opt for diplomacy and sanctions (61 percent) over threats of U.S. force (27 percent). Majorities of nearly every demographic group prefer the diplomatic route, although Republicans split on the issue (46-46 percent). ...

The poll shows that 35 percent of voters support the Iran deal, 38 percent oppose it, and 26 percent are unable to offer an opinion. When the agreement was made two years ago, 28 percent supported it, 56 percent were opposed, and 16 percent were unsure (September 2015).

On handling Iran, 39 percent approve of the job Trump is doing, while 45 percent disapprove.

Newsweek
Wish Obama Was Still President? Polls Show You're Not Alone

With every early morning tweet about North Korea, every new scoop related to the Russia scandal and every businessman who gets hired (then fired) from the White House, Barack Obama looks just a little bit better than President Donald Trump.

Fifty-two percent of respondents to a Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday said they wished Obama was still leading the U.S., compared to 41 percent who said they preferred having Trump in office. The Obama fandom was dominated by voters who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, but they weren't alone.

Some 7 percent of Trump voters—and 14 percent of self-identified Republicans—also chose Obama over the current commander in chief.

The Obama nostalgia is real, especially because Trump's approval ratings are so low—about 39 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight. The poll was also full of Trump criticisms: 54 percent of people said he was dishonest, 47 percent said he was mentally unstable and 48 percent said he should be impeached.

"We’re really not seeing any path to Donald Trump achieving a positive approval rating," the polling group's president, Dean Debnam, said in a news release. "Voters are unhappy with him about a lot of ongoing issues, and new ones seem to creep up in our polling every month as well."

WaPo
Trump foreign policy pronouncements split the Republican Party

President Trump’s often-controversial foreign policy pronouncements, which have generated criticism abroad, have produced sharp divisions within the Republican coalition, with the party badly split on the issues of trade, immigration, climate change and the value of U.S. alliances, according to a new poll by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. ...

Compared with a year ago, Americans are more positive about the value of trade and see immigration and refugees as less of a threat to the country. More people than a year ago, although not a majority, describe climate change as a critical threat to the country, though fewer are positive in their view of the Paris climate agreement.

Trump’s most controversial views have yet to find widespread support. As the council notes in its report, “The results [of the survey] suggest their attraction remains limited . . . Aside from the president’s core supporters, most Americans prefer the type of foreign policy that has been typical of U.S. administrations, be they Republican or Democrat, since World War II.”

Associated Press
AP-NORC poll: Americans want local leaders to fight warming

Americans want their local officials to take on the challenge of battling global warming now that President Donald Trump is withdrawing the nation an international climate change agreement.

That's according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago. The poll finds 57 percent of Americans say they favor local governments picking up the slack to try and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on their own, with only 10 percent opposing it. About 55 percent of Americans say their own local and state governments should be doing more to address global warming, with only 10 percent saying they should be doing less.

And more Americans oppose than favor Trump's effort to pull the U.S. out of the 2015 Paris accord, in which nearly 200 nations agreed to self-imposed cuts or limits on emissions of heat-trapping gas pollution. Forty-two percent of those surveyed said they oppose getting out of the Paris agreement, while 28 percent favored the withdrawal and 28 percent had no strong opinion. Among Democrats 64 percent want to stay in the Paris agreement and 17 percent don't. More Republicans favored withdrawing, 46 percent, than staying in, 22 percent. ...

Overall, 72 percent of Americans say they believe climate change is happening and 63 percent think human activity is at least partially responsible. Eighty-two percent of Democrats and 43 percent of Republicans say they believe in at least partially human-caused climate change. The poll was conducted before a spate of hurricanes battered Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

Eighty percent of Democrats and 43 percent of Republicans think it's a problem the U.S. government should be addressing.

USA Today
Most older Americans don't trust Trump to save Social Security

Most older Americans don’t trust President Trump or Congress to safeguard Social Security and Medicare but about half say the administration’s policies will promote economic growth, according to an Ipsos/USA TODAY survey.

The results largely split along party lines, with most Republicans remaining confident in the president and the vast majority of Democrats voicing doubts. But independents, who tipped the 2016 election to Trump, also are skeptics. And the tally appears to point to some erosion in support for Trump’s agenda among older Americans, a majority of whom backed the president in November. ...

Fifty-nine percent of those surveyed don’t trust the Trump administration to protect Social Security and Medicare, which face insolvency by 2034, and just 22% say the programs are more secure now than they were a year ago.

While only 21% of Democrats and 28% of independents say they trust the White House to shield the entitlements, 57% of Republicans hold that view. Still, 77% of Democrats, 60% of Republicans and 72% of independents don’t think the programs are more secure now than they were a year ago.

Even fewer older Americans have faith in the Republican-majority Congress. Seventy-percent of the 45- to 65-year-olds don’t trust the lawmakers to preserve Social Security and Medicare, including 74% of Democrats, 62% of Republicans and 78% of independents.

PBS
Poll: Most Americans don’t think Trump can lead during global crisis

Most Americans have an unfavorable impression of President Donald Trump and don’t approve of his job performance while in office so far, according to a new poll from PBS NewsHour and Marist Poll.

Fifty-four percent of U.S. adults disapprove of Mr. Trump’s work so far, while just more than a third of Americans — 37 percent — said they approved of the president’s performance. His approval ratings have hovered in the mid to upper 30s since his inauguration, according to previous Marist polls.

A majority of U.S. adults also don’t think highly of the president: 57 percent of respondents said they have an unfavorable impression of him. Still, that unfavorability rating has decreased since last November’s contentious presidential election when two-thirds of respondents — 64 percent — said they did not view him favorably, according to previous Marist polls.

And two-thirds of Americans — 65 percent — say the country is going in the wrong direction, a long-term trend of American pessimism that stems back to the years after the Great Recession.

When it comes to international affairs, 58 percent of Americans have little to no confidence in Trump’s ability to lead during a crisis. This lack of confidence has remained virtually unchanged since August and comes amid reported conflicts between Trump and members of his cabinet in managing ongoing tension between the United States and North Korea. On Tuesday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis played down reports that he split from Trump in showing support for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s decision to pursue diplomacy with North Korea. The president had told Tillerson he was “wasting his time.”

AP Poll: Just 24 percent say US heading in right direction

Just 24 percent of Americans believe the country is heading in the right direction after a tumultuous stretch for President Donald Trump that included the threat of war with North Korea, stormy complaints about hurricane relief and Trump's equivocating about white supremacists. That's a 10-point drop since June, according to a poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The decline in optimism about the nation's trajectory is particularly pronounced among Republicans. In June, 60 percent of Republicans said the country was headed in the right direction; now it's just 44 percent.

The broader picture for the president is grim, too. Nearly 70 percent of Americans say Trump isn't level-headed, and majorities say he's not honest or a strong leader. More than 60 percent disapprove of how he is handling race relations, foreign policy and immigration, among other issues.

Overall, 67 percent of Americans disapprove of the job Trump is doing in office, including about one-third of Republicans. ...

Ninety-two percent of Democrats and 69 percent of independents say Trump understands the problems of people like them not very or not at all well. Even among Republicans, only 42 percent say he understands them very well, while 32 percent say he does moderately well.

Trump's popularity is slipping in rural America: poll

According to the Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll, the Republican president’s popularity is eroding in small towns and rural communities where 15 percent of the country’s population lives. The poll of more than 15,000 adults in “non-metro” areas shows that they are now as likely to disapprove of Trump as they are to approve of him.

In September, 47 percent of people in non-metro areas approved of Trump while 47 percent disapproved. That is down from Trump’s first four weeks in office, when 55 percent said they approved of the president while 39 percent disapproved.

The poll found that Trump has lost support in rural areas among men, whites and people who never went to college. He lost support with rural Republicans and rural voters who supported him on Election Day.

And while Trump still gets relatively high marks in the poll for his handling of the economy and national security, rural Americans are increasingly unhappy with Trump’s record on immigration, a central part of his presidential campaign.

Forty-seven percent of rural Americans said in September they approved of the president’s handling of immigration, down from 56 percent during his first month in office.

I'm becoming increasingly certain that Trump could start a nuclear war, sell the statue of liberty, put a tacky Trump hotel in the Grand Canyon, and threaten to take away everyone's health care, and the republicans will continue to support him. But if the economy stumbles (which its bound to do, sooner or later) then they'll do something about him. If a republican (and some democrats and independents) has a job and a reasonably healthy stock portfolio, they don't give a damn if we're threatening to kill millions of people on the Korean peninsula. But if the stock market dives, or they lose their job, they'll finally go, "okay, NOW Trump has gone too far!"

This is not going to turn into votes for a Democrat for President. These people are unhappy because he's not accomplishing the worst of his promises. A Democrat is not what they are going to want. They are going to want someone more extreme than DOTUS or they will settle for him again, but they won't vote for a sensible person with sane and humane policies. I only have seen one person in any interview express that they no longer support him because of his actual bad policies - particularly his destructive Cabinet choices. Everyone else is mad because he's not blowing up the country and deporting everyone who is not white bread.

Forty-seven percent of rural Americans said in September they approved of the president’s handling of immigration, down from 56 percent during his first month in office.
I'd love to see the results of some focus groups to help explain this. Polls don't tell us why, they just tell us what.

Why are rural Americans "increasingly unhappy with Trump's record on immigration"? Is that he's not cracking down hard enough, or that they're belatedly realizing what happens when they get what they wanted?

Too, also - why are they giving him high marks for the economy and national security? I have a strong sense that many of these people have little knowledge and understanding of those issues to begin with. It's frustrating to think that the country should be influenced by the opinions of people who actually have little familiarity with the issues they're being asked about.
