Skip to comments.Trumpís dipping approval is putting Republicans in dangerous territory (LOL LOL LOL)

Were doing a great job, said President Trump yesterday in a surprise endorsement of his own success. The poll numbers are through the roof. Our poll numbers are great. And guess what? Nobody is going to come close to beating me in 2020 because of what weve done.
Though Trump can always be counted on to testify to his unblemished record of winning, it was odd he chose to focus on poll numbers right at the moment, because one place they are not going is through the roof.
In fact, Trumps numbers are dropping to near the lowest point of his presidency. In the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, Trumps approval rating is at 36 percent, and a majority of respondents strongly disapprove of his performance. An IBD/TIPP poll also puts the president at 36 percent, while the Economist shows him at 38 percent. Some others have him above 40 percent (Gallups latest is 41 percent), but not by much.
This isnt a dramatic swing, but it is an identifiable downturn, especially since Trumps approval ratings have been so stable over the course of his presidency. And if there was ever a moment when a small change could make a big difference, this is it.
Precisely locating the cause of incremental movements in presidential approval polls is next to impossible, particularly when were talking about Trump. There are so many cataclysmic things happening in any given week, there is no way to say with certainty what caused the change. But there are some likely suspects from the last few weeks including the multiple former Trump aides who were either convicted or pleaded guilty to crimes, as well as the death of John McCain which led to extensive media ruminations on Trumps character flaws.

and yet another schmoe with his 2 cents

they conveniently leave out Rasmussen...how odd...
It’s this the approval poll that had him holding steady at 48% for the longest time?
Don’t the MAGGOTS eating in the COMPOST pile ever get tired of not only serving, but also eating SH!T?
Trump is in such dangerous territory - why is a huge crowd hearing him tonight in Billings, MT?
More fake news gaslighting...
“dipping”? Trump’s approval went over a cliff before the Russian collusion that got him elected.
the commie/Nazi conspirators keep trying to disrupt, demonize, delegitimize, defame, and if they can depose
our elected government
SorozNazi using some of the very same tactics his fellow Nazi bff’s used to (successfully) depose the Weimar Republic’s government
the same playbook....it worked then, and it looks like it just may work now...?
30 Aug: SBS: AAP: Hockey says ‘formidable’ Trump will be re-elected
Australia’s ambassador to the US, Joe Hockey, says Donald Trump is one of the most formidable politicians he’s seen in his life and is backing him for re-election.
Australia’s ambassador to the United States says Trump is authentic, not as aggressive in person as he is on Twitter, and is underestimated by many people.
“He is one of the most formidable politicians I’ve ever seen in my life,” he told Sydney’s 2GB radio...
The former Liberal treasurer felt there was a lot of momentum behind him in the US, and lauded him for fulfilling his promises to cut taxes, boosting the American economy, tearing up the Trans-Pacific Partnership, pulling out of the Paris climate agreement and moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
“When is the last time you had a president like that?
“If I was a betting man I would say you would bet that he’d be re-elected.”...
The author ....creepy
If Trump is so unpopular, why are his rallies packed with lines out the door?
These people dont get it...
Hell, in 2020, when President Trump is elected overwhelmingly for his 2nd term, ABC News/Washington Post poll will have him at 5% approval....ROFL
Gaslighting at its best.
And him’s got him a wiki page!
“These people dont get it...”
They cannot get it. They are mentally impaired. Getting it would cause such cognitive dissonance, well, think of the movie Scanners.
In future shouldn’t we be referring to the Amazon Compost? Isn’t that more fitting?
Great idea! I am stealing it!
