Trump’s approval numbers hold @ around 40% of American’s…

Six months into his Presidency his numbers hover around 35% to 40% approval ( 55% to 60% Disapproval)  and  at 70% Approval  with his adopted parties Republicans….

FiveThirtyEight: “Trump’s early-term unpopularity is unusual. In the decades since World War II, the average first-term president before Trump had an approval rating of 62 percent on his 175th day in office, 23 percentage points higher than Trump’s. Only two other presidents have had an approval rating south of 50 percent at this point in their terms, and only Gerald Ford, at 35 percent, had an approval rating lower than Trump’s; Ford’s rating tumbled following his decision to pardon Richard Nixon.”

“Trump’s disapproval rating, however, is much higher than Ford’s, and Trump is the only president of whom a majority of Americans have said they disapprove of the job he is doing this soon after his inauguration. His net approval rating is 54 points below average and remains by far the lowest in the period for which we have data.”…..


A new Monmouth poll finds President Trump’s approval rating has held fairly steady, 39% to 52%, despite recent revelations that family members and campaign aids met with Russian operatives during the 2016 campaign.

Said pollster Patrick Murray: “Trump’s job rating has basically held steady amid another round of supposedly damaging news. Most Americans disapprove of his son and other advisers meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, but that hasn’t really moved the needle on any other public opinion metric related to the president.”

Also interesting: “About 4-in-10 Americans currently support impeaching Trump six months into his term, which is significantly higher than the number who called for Richard Nixon’s impeachment six months into that president’s second term.”….

  1. He never stops amusing though…his tweet about the ABC/NBC Poll was pure Trumpism…he said (paraphrasing)…40% aint bad for right now, but the poll was done by ABC/NBC and how did their election polls work for them…I loved it…Always on the attack never any other method of dealing with issues.

  2. This is simply the Republican base that hates Obama, Clinton, the media, Hollywood,etc.
    And sure, as CG points out they also hate the GOP establishment. But they can always be counted on to vote Republican.

    Trump won his narrow Electoral College victory by taking the “what the he’ll, why not?” vote. A lot of them thought he’d be either independent or a “different kind” of Republican. Most of these voters have now abandoned him, leaving him with the partisan base that can’t win an election for him. Trump however seems not to care.
