  • Anyone Notice That Trump Is Now Tied With 'Popular' Obama On Job Approval?

    Popularity: President Trump can't get a break from negative press coverage, but somehow his approval rating continues to edge upward. In fact, it's now tied with where the "extremely popular" President Obama was at this point in his first term. The latest Gallup poll puts Trump's job approval at 45%. That's the highest it's been since he took office, and it's up from 37% at the start of the year. Although you'd barely know it from the press Trump gets, his approval number has been on a slow but relatively steady rise all year. Not only that, but Trump's approval...

    A Gallup Poll released Monday showed President Trump earning his highest approval rating since shortly after he took office, even as his administration faces growing criticism over its immigration policies. The Gallup Poll found 45 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance as of Sunday, while 50 percent disapprove. The approval number matches Trump’s highest to date from Gallup. He previously received the same rating for the week ending on Jan. 29, 2017. Trump’s current approval rating rose 3 percentage points since June 10. ETC...

    The good news for President Donald Trump? His approval rating is up 7 points since last month, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The bad news? That only lifts Trump’s approval to 42 percent, low for a president at this point in his tenure. Still, the trajectory is a welcome shift for a White House that has been battered by chaos, controversies and internal upheaval. The poll suggests that at least some of the president’s improving standing is tied to the economy and the Republican tax overhaul, which offers a glimmer of...

What about Obama at same exact date first year in presidency?? 46% APPROVE, 53% DISAPPROVE! So, what do we have here? As per the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday, 46% of Americans approve of the job Donald Trump was doing during his first year in office. Why is that relevant? Well, the mainstream media made a...

    About a year into President Donald Trump's first term, the jury for much of the country and for most of the major media has returned its verdict: Trump is a failure. Trump is incompetent. Trump cannot lead. Trump has no legislative victories. Even former President Jimmy Carter said he had never seen a president so maligned in the media. Meanwhile former President Barack Obama all but compared Trump to Hitler. Trump endures a nightly beating from the cast of late-night comedians who take turns calling Trump racist, sexist, dumb, inarticulate, overweight, overwrought and, of course, clueless. His reported consumption of...

    President Trump's approval rating dropped to 38 percent in October, the lowest recorded amount of support from voters since he took office in January, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday. [Snip] Voters are most unhappy with Trump's handling of the NFL players' protests, recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and the healthcare battle in Congress. Between 54 percent and 59 percent of people disapprove of Trump's work in those areas. [Snip] Currently, 48 percent of voters want a Democratic-controlled Congress and 41 percent want Republicans to maintain control of both chambers. The 2018 Senate...

    Considering former FBI Director James Comey testified last Thursday that the president was a liar, last week wasn't particularly great for Donald Trump. And this week isn't off to a great start for the president, either. Trump's approval rating sunk to just 36 percent in the latest Gallup daily tracking poll released Monday. That's nearly the lowest point for Trump in the Gallup survey. Trump previously hit 35 percent approval on March 28 shortly after the Republican Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, failed before the House of Representatives could even take a vote. Trump's disapproval rating, meanwhile, has...

    Clinton News Network ^ | 4:21 PM ET, Fri February 3, 2017 | Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director
    It’s been two weeks since Donald Trump’s inauguration, and the new President's work so far hasn’t impressed the American people. A majority, 53%, disapprove of the way the President is handling his job, according to a new CNN/ORC poll, marking the highest disapproval for a new elected president since polls began tracking those results. Trump is the only President to hold a net-negative rating this early in his tenure. […] Trump’s high disapproval most clearly differentiates his ratings from those of his predecessors. While Ronald Reagan’s first approval rating measure of 51% from Gallup in 1981 was not that far...

    President Barack Obama had an average approval rating of 47.9 percent during his time in office, according to the Gallup poll. That puts him behind Richard Nixon, who resigned, and George W. Bush, who saw his approval rating drop as low as 25 percent near the end of his term. It puts him ahead of only Gerald Ford (47.2 percent), Jimmy Carter (45.5 percent) and Harry Truman (45.4 percent). …

    The problem for the MSM--just like the career politicians--is that Joe Six-pack finally woke up--and good 'ol Joe, has said to hell with you With public opinion indicating that the mainstream press has an even lower approval rating than congress critters, why does the MSM keep shooting themselves in the foot? The latest self-inflicted left-wing casualty is NBC owned BuzzFeed—which chose to publish the unsubstantiated and badly tainted “dossier” on Donald Trump and his “Russian connections”. Their rush to put out what the intelligence community has now referred to as “unvetted information”, has led to a worse than embarrassing moment...

    As of July 2015, President Obama’s public approval rating was 44%, down significantly from his starting approval of 62%. To be fair, Obama still has around a year left in office, so his approval rating is far from final. But few presidents leave the White House more popular than when they entered. So how does Obama stack up to the modern presidents when it comes to popularity? Using data from Real Clear Politics and the Roper Center, InsideGov found the average approval ratings for the modern U.S. presidents (FDR onward). We also provide an overall breakdown of each president’s approval...

    Other than her last name and big donors, the only advantage Hillary has is her gender. Some Americans will vote for her only because they want to see the first woman President in our history It is now crystal clear to any objective observer; Hillary Clinton is a horrible candidate. As Americans get to know Hillary, they like her less. In the latest Associated Press-GFK poll, Hillary scores an abysmal 39% approval rating, compared to an unfavorable rating of 49%. In the three months since Hillary launched her campaign, her numbers have dropped dramatically. Back in April, Clinton had a...

    President Obama often blames Republicans for taking America from crisis to crisis. Fiscal cliff! Government shutdown! Near default! But self-inflicted wounds can be the most painful of all. And in the spirit of President Harry “Buck Stops Here” Truman, Mr. Obama may have no one but himself to blame for the botched rollout of, the website whose proper functioning is key to the success of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the signature initiative of Obama’s presidency. Presidential scholars are baffled that someone whose legacy rests on the success of the ACA – reinforced by a nickname, "Obamacare," that includes...

    After the federal government shutdown for 21 days from mid-December 1995 to early January 1996, the percentage of Americans who said they approved of the job Congress was doing increased, according to the Gallup poll. At the same time, the percentage of Americans who said they approved of the job then-President Bill Clinton was doing remained the same, and the percentage who said they approved of the job then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich was doing dropped by only two points. The government shutdown from Dec. 16, 1995 to Jan. 6, 1996, occurred when the Republican-controlled House of Representatives was trying to...

    Last week was a pretty good one for Mitt Romney. He moved ahead of Rick Santorum in the polls in Wisconsin. His lead in national polls of Republicans increased as well. And he continued to get prominent endorsements from star conservatives like Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, indicating a party moving in his direction. But despite all this encouraging news, there was a cloud on Romney’s horizon: his terrible approval ratings. How terrible? According to a new ABC News-Washington Post survey, only 34 percent of Americans view Romney favorably (“the lowest for any leading presidential candidate in ABC/Post polls in...
