THE PROSPECTS FOR TRUMP, 18 MONTHS OUT
Powerline ^ | May 15,2019 | Stephen Hayward

IRasmussen has often been right in its election calls), but today there is a survey out from Zogby—an outfit by no means sympathetic to Trump—that shows Trump’s general approval rating topping 50 percent. And some of the internals of the polls are very striking, especially majority support for Trump among millennials, and rising support among Hispanics and blacks:

At the moment President Trump’s approval rating is higher than Obama’s at the same point in his presidency—Zogby Analytics had President Obama at 48% approve/52% disapprove on 05/09/2011. . .

President Trump scored well with younger Millennial voters aged 18-29 (51% approve/46% disapprove) and Generation Z voters aged 18-24 (49% approve/51% disapprove). The President also received a good approval rating with voters aged 25-54; he received a majority job approval rating from older Millennial voters aged 25-34 (53% approve/43% disapprove) and middle aged voters aged 35-54 (59% approve/38% disapprove). Among the oldest voters surveyed-aged 65+, Trump’s disapproval rating was the strongest (59% disapprove/41% approve). As per usual, the president did well with men (58% approve/40% disapprove) and he improved his support with women (44% approve/54% disapprove). . .

Another group the president is doing better with is Independents, who have recently changed their tune about Trump’s job performance. . . The president also made strides with college educated voters (55% approve/45% disapprove), and saw support increase slightly with non-college educated voters (47% approve/50% disapprove). . .

Trump’s approval rating has improved with minorities—27% of African Americans and 45% of Hispanics approve of the president—both very good numbers historically for Trump.

If these last two numbers are reflected at the ballot box next year, it is curtains for Democrats. But here’s the key chart from the survey:

No wonder Democrats are in panic mode

I don't believe this part of the poll.

I do. If it was just WHITE people in that group it would be something like a 65% approval rating.

Imagine the President’s approval ratings would top 70% with a fawning, Obama style state media.

Just ignore all polls, good or bad, and be sure to get out and VOTE on election day, the only poll that counts.

To your point, it really isn’t important how Trump Does in the dozen or so liberal states or the conservative belt. Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, New Hampshire and perhaps a few others are all that is important. If Trump flips Minnesota and New Hampshire or Nevada and holds Wisconsin it is over for the liberals.
