And We Haven’ Even Got to The Trial Part Yet…The Chumph’s Approval Number Tank To a New Low

We haven’t even go to the part where one or more Chumph collaborators and fellow traitors has gone down yet!

I can’t think of any President who has been on the wrong side of so many issues, and who has created issues de jour to be on the wrong side of so consistently.

Trump’s Approval Rating Drops to Lowest Level Yet in New NBC News/WSJ Poll

 President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has declined to the lowest point of his presidency, and nearly half of voters want their vote in the 2018 midterms to be a message for more Democrats in Congress to check Trump and congressional Republicans, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Thirty eight percent of Americans say they approve of Trump’s job performance — down five points since September — while 58 percent disapprove.

Trump’s previous low in approval in the national NBC/WSJ poll was 39 percent back in May.

Trump Job Approval, Oct. 2017

“This is his worst showing of his young presidency so far,” said Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff and his team at Public Opinion Strategies.

The drop for Trump has come from independents (who shifted from 41 percent approval in September to 34 percent now), whites (who went from 51 percent to 47 percent) and whites without a college degree (from 58 percent to 51 percent).

“Are we starting to see the fraying of the Trump base … after this week of [Republican] infighting?” Yang asked.

Trump’s job approval rating of 38 percent is the lowest in modern times for a president at this stage of his presidency. The NBC/WSJ poll had George W. Bush at 88 percent, Barack Obama at 51 percent and Bill Clinton at 47 percent in the fall of their first year as president.

In this new survey, Trump also has seen a decline in his personal rating, with 36 percent viewing him positively and 54 percent negatively.

Back in September — when the political headlines were focused more on the president’s handling of the hurricanes that hit Texas and Florida, as well as Trump’s spending deal with congressional Democrats — his score was 39 percent positive, 49 percent negative.

But this current poll, conducted October 23-26, comes on the heels of a tumultuous two weeks in American politics, which included:

  • Trump charging that his predecessors didn’t make calls to the families of fallen U.S. soldiers;
  • Trump upsetting the family and friends of Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in Niger, by allegedly telling them that Johnson “must’ve known what he signed up for”;
  • Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., criticizing their party’s own president.

Additionally, the NBC/WSJ poll measures some of Trump’s recent actions over the past couple of months. The most popular: By a 48 percent to 27 percent margin, Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

And by a 42 percent-to-37 percent margin, they give a thumbs-up to the president’s handling of the economy.

But Trump is underwater on almost every other issue. Just 35 percent approve of his handling of his role as commander in chief; 34 percent approve of his handling of North Korea; 33 percent approve of his handling of the mass shooting in Las Vegas; and 30 percent approve of Trump’s handling of NFL players protesting during the National Anthem.

At the bottom: 29 percent agree with his handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico; 27 percent approve of his handling of health care; and 24 percent approve of his handling of the Iran nuclear deal…

And there is no bottom in sight!

Worst Approval Rating in History – The Chumph

How much does America hate the Chumph?

Poll: 70 percent say Trump acts unpresidential

President Donald Trump’s behavior as commander-in-chief has unnerved respondents to a Washington Post/ABC News poll, 70 percent of which said he has acted in an unpresidential manner since assuming office last January.

Trump’s overall approval rating in the poll, portions of which were first releasedSunday, dipped to 36 percent, a low-water mark for any president at this early stage of an administration.

But the president fared even worse when respondents were asked about his personal behavior: In addition to the 70 percent who said Trump has been unpresidential since moving into the White House, 68 percent said they do not see him as a positive role model and 56 percent said his conduct is “damaging to the presidency overall.”

Fifty-seven percent of respondents said that the more they hear about the president, the less they like him.

Trump’s Twitter habit earned an especially strong rebuke from those polled, with 67 percent responding that they disapprove of his use of the social media platform. Fifty-two percent said Trump’s Twitter usage was “dangerous,” while 65 percent said it was “insulting” and 68 percent said it was “inappropriate.” Other respondents used more positive word-associations, including 41 percent who said the president’s tweets were “interesting” and 21 percent who called them “refreshing.”

Among Republicans, 38 percent of those polled said Trump’s conduct has been unpresidential, a view shared by 48 percent of white evangelical protestants reached by the poll and 55 percent of white men without a college degree who responded to it.

Gallup: Trump hits new low after health care flop

President Donald Trump’s approval rating slipped to a new low Monday in the Gallup daily tracking poll, the first measure of Trump’s job performance following his administration’s failure to move a new health care law through Congress.

Only 36 percent of Americans approve of the way Trump is handling his job as president in interviews conducted last Friday through Sunday, a time period entirely after Republicans abandoned their bill to replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act.

Trump’s approval rating is down from 41 percent in the prior three-day period. His previous low-water mark in the Gallup poll came earlier this month, when interviews conducted March 16-18 showed his approval rating at just 37 percent.

In the new survey, the percentage of Americans who disapprove of Trump’s performance is 57 percent, up from 54 percent in the previous three-day rolling sample. That’s one point shy of Trump’s highest disapproval rating: 58 percent in the March 16-18 sample.

Tavis Smiley and Sheila Jackson Lee on Obama’s CBC Speech

No surprise here with Tavis having heartburn with the speech President Obama made before the Congressional Black Caucus. What is interesting is Sheila Jackson Lee’s response…

With 40 members in the House – seems to me the CBC could be quite effective at taking out some of the trash, in terms of tying the Tea Party Rethugs in knots. Why won’t they do that?

Is Obama Another Jimmy Carter?

The base is getting restless – and frustrated by repeat failures by President Obama to grab the Bull by the Horns – folding up his tent and running away at the first sign of Republican resistance…

The real key to Obama’s election chances are in his support by minority groups. Among Hispanics, his approval rating is falling rapidly. While Hispanics are unlikely to vote in the republican Lynch Mob – that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t embrace a Democrat Primary challenger or a Third Party.

Black folks also are growing weary of President Obama’s “punking out” on issue after issue.  The Republican talking point is that it is the economy and jobs. Black folks know full well who is going to be last in line for those jobs should Republicans gain control. So – even though President Obama isn’t seen as making much progress, there is a big difference in being goverened by the well meaning but weak willed and ineffective…

And the strong willed who are out to kill you.

Democrats doubt Barack Obama’s reelection chances

President Barack Obama is facing mounting doubts within his own party about his re-election prospects, with fellow Democrats beginning to ask if Hillary Clinton would have made a better president.

Mr Obama’s capitulation to Republicans in the recent tussle over deficit reduction is being seen as the lowest point of his presidency and the latest in a series of blows to the liberal agenda.

Faced with the staunch opposition of the Tea Party contingent of the Republican Party, he agreed to widespread cuts in government spending without winning any revenue increases in exchange.

Finding it hard to defend his often listless and repetitive performances, Democratic strategists and commentators are privately agreeing with Republicans and comparing Mr Obama to Jimmy Carter, another Democrat who remains the post-war benchmark for a failed president.

“He is a do-gooder at heart,” said Morris Reid, a Washington consultant and former Clinton official. “He thinks everyone has the same agenda to do the right thing, but other people don’t have the same agenda. Their agenda is to score points and get their party re-elected.

“This is the downside of him not being terribly political like Bill Clinton was. Bill Clinton woke up every day relishing this kind of fight, and Hillary is just a tougher person. The Clintons are much more combative, they are always ready to go to Defcon 1 (‘war is imminent’ state).”

Mr Reid added that the president remained a formidable campaigner and fund-raiser and should not be ruled out of the fight in 2012. But he said some Democrats were feeling “buyer’s remorse” for selecting the president in his epic battle with Mrs Clinton for the 2008 Democratic nomination.

“The notion everyone is talking about is ‘is he Jimmy Carter or will he be a one-term president’,” he said.

Gary Pearce, a Democratic strategist in North Carolina, a swing state Mr Obama is likely to struggle to retain in 2012, said: “Democrats are worried. He looks weak, he doesn’t say anything that grabs you, and people are looking for some kind of magic.”

He said some activists were asking “do we need someone tougher to fight the tea party?” “You see a yearning for a Bill Clinton-type approach and Hillary would reflect that. Obama is just a different political animal, he is a low-key guy,” he added.

Mr Obama’s approval rating has fallen dramatically since the killing of Osama bin Laden in early May, and he has failed to outline a vision for how he will improve chronic unemployment and a housing market in which one if five mortgage holders are in negative equity.

A 2012 primary challenge by Mrs Clinton is currently regarded as unlikely, but growing number of party activists and old hands are hoping that she changes her mind.

On his nightly television show, liberal host Bill Maher dismissed Mr Obama as a Republican, and asked his panel if Mrs Clinton would have made a better president.

“Yes,” replied astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, an African American astrophysicist and broadcaster, adding that the Secretary of State would have been “a more effective negotiator in the halls of Congress”.

Hey Cantor! Know When to Fold ‘Em!

Some 71% of Americans disapprove of Congressional Republicans’ handling of the debt crisis, while just 21% support the GOP’s efforts, a CBS News poll finds. Congressional Democrats fare better, but only slightly so: 58% disapprove of their work on the issue; 31% approve. President Obama gets the best poll numbers of all the players, but his 48% disapproval figure remains larger than his approval rating, at 43%.

Lowest Congress Approval in History?

How LOW can you go?

Republicans like to cheer at every real or perceived drop in President Obama’s “Approval” ratings…

In truth, it’s nothing more than trying to bring the President down to their level.

Congress’ Job Approval Rating Worst in Gallup History

Americans’ assessment of Congress has hit a new low, with 13% saying they approve of the way Congress is handling its job. The 83% disapproval rating is also the worst Gallup has measured in more than 30 years of tracking congressional job performance.

And approval of Republicans in Congress…

Is lower than the temperature in Buffalo, which just got 6-8 feet of snow!

7%?

And Gallup tends to lean slightly in Republican’s favor!
