    Never Trumpers like Ohio Governor John Kasich and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) are hoping they can derail President Donald Trump in New Hampshire in 2020, but Trump’s approval ratings are on the rise in the Granite State. According to the University of New Hampshire’s Granite State poll that was released on Monday, approval of Trump’s “overall job performance, handling of the economy and foreign affairs, and his personal favorability have all increased since February,” primarily because of the state’s key independent voters. The poll found that 41% of New Hampshire residents approve of Trump’s job performance, up from 35% in...

  • Trump's approval tops 50%, left still shilling tax cuts bad for us

    You've got to be incorrigibly in opposition to reality if you want the American people to somehow believe that tax cuts are bad for us, Obamacare bends the cost of health care downward, and higher salaries and more jobs are just terrible. A new Rasmussen tracking poll shows that President Trump's approval has risen to 50%, with 49% stating some degree of disapproval, meaning that more Americans approve of President Trump than disapprove. This is a first, and it knocks another leg out from under the argument that President Trump is disastrous. So all the Beltway chatter about "chaos" in...

    A new SurveyUSA poll reveals most voters aren't big fans of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, including her constituents in the wildly liberal state of California. "Democrat Nancy Pelosi has a Minus 9 Net Job Approval today - 36% of voters statewide approve of the job the House Minority Leader is doing; 45% disapprove," according to the results released Tuesday. "Even in Pelosi's backyard, the Bay Area, she is under water: 39% of voters there approve of the job she is doing, 42% disapprove."

    President Donald Trump’s approval rating is climbing, even as critics continue to predict the imminent unraveling of his presidency. A new CNN poll reveals his favorable rating, which had fallen in recent months, is now back to where it was at the 100-day milestone following his election on Nov. 8, 2016. Among Republicans, support has increased from 80 percent to 86 percent and Independents’ approval has grown from 35 percent to 41 percent. Trump’s overall support in this poll stands at 42 percent and disapproval at 54 percent.
  • Note To 'Experts': Obama Is Not a Top 10 President

    When "presidential politics experts" ranked all presidents, past and current, the headlines typically focused on Trump’s position at the bottom of the list. After one year—a year with a booming economy, increased business and consumer confidence, and significant gains on the foreign policy front—they have concluded that Trump is the worst president of all time. There’s no chance of any partisan bias there, right?Trump's record is certainly up for debate, but even famed liberal pollster Nate Silver wrote off the rankings as partisan garbage in a tweet. "It speaks poorly to the field of presidential scholarship that political scientists have Trump...
  • In Which State Is Trump’s Approval Highest And Lowest

    Assuming President Trump's State of the Union address goes as well as last year's speech to a joint session of Congress, Trump's approval rating, which lingered below 40% for much of last year, will likely see a bump tomorrow, along with stocks, which today are seeing their worst daily drop since the Brexit vote. But Trump's low national approval rating masks something that's important when evaluating Trump's popularity: His approval varies dramatically from state to state. Indeed, in many of the states that he carried on election night, his approval rating is in excess of 60%. According to a recent...

    Don’t look now my lefty friends, but President Trump’s approval ratings are on the rise after his successful trip through East Asia. According to a respected tracking poll, Trump is edging closer to that 50% mark, one that would certainly ensure a successful reelection in 2020, if accurate. The Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll revealed on Monday that Trump’s approval rating hit 46% among likely American voters with 53% disapproving. While this poll does tend to tilt to the right a bit, it was the most accurate among the major polling institutions during last year’s unpredictable presidential election. The...

    President Trump’s favorite poll isn’t giving him a boost anymore. The President’s approval rating in Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning and oft-criticized polling firm beloved by Trump, dipped below 40% for the first time ever Monday. That new low reflects Trump’s plunge in nearly every mainstream opinion poll, which have shown him scoring record-low approval ratings through his first months in office. It also comes just a month after Trump hand-picked a Rasmussen poll as proof that he was performing better than his predecessor, former President Barack Obama. Monday’s Rasmussen survey showed Trump getting overall approval from only 39% of likely...

    Different polling firms peg Trump at varying levels of approval, but the RealClearPolitics average had him at 39.8 percent Tuesday while the weighted average from FiveThirtyEight had him at exactly 39 percent. Not great numbers, but still better than Clinton. On day 138 of his presidency, just 37.8 percent of Americans approved of the job he was doing, according to FiveThirtyEight.

    President Donald Trump is by no means popular—compared with his predecessors, his approval rating has been remarkably low during his time in the White House. But there's some small solace for the president this week: His approval rating is, at least for the moment, a hair better then where President Bill Clinton stood at the same point in his first term. Different polling outfits put Trump at varying levels of approval, but the RealClearPolitics average had him at 39.8 percent Tuesday, while the weighted average from FiveThirtyEight had him at exactly 39 percent. Not great numbers, but still better than Clinton. On Day 138 of...

    It’s also lower than Trump’s, notes WaPo’s Amber Phillips. Trump is at 39 percent in this poll, a dismal number for a president at any stage but especially during what’s supposed to be his “honeymoon period” with voters. And still, he’s fully 10 points better than Ryan.How many different contributing factors are there for Ryan’s garbage numbers? I can think of at least four.His approval rating isn’t wildly different from Boehner’s or Pelosi’s. His disapproval rating, though? Hoo boy. Contributing factor one: He was, of course, the quarterback for the GOP’s much-hated health-care bill, which was polling at a...

    President Donald Trump's job approval rating fell to 36% for the three-day period of March 24-26, following Republican House leaders' failed effort to pass a new healthcare bill that would have replaced the Affordable Care Act. Trump's three-day reading prior to Friday's events was 41%. His previous low point was 37%, recorded March 16-18. His highest reading was 46% in the week following his Jan. 20 inauguration, and he has averaged 42% for his term to date. Trump's current 36% is two percentage points below Barack Obama's low point of 38%, recorded in 2011 and 2014. Trump has also edged...
  • Trump’s approval rating is in a free fall

    President Trump’s approval rating has taken a nosedive, according to the latest Gallup poll. Only 37 percent of respondents approve the job the president is doing — the lowest level since he took office — while 58 percent disapprove, the poll found. Trump’s approval rating was 45 percent a week earlier. Other presidents have experienced even lower ratings, but Trump is the first commander-in-chief in at least 70 years to have dropped this low by March of his first term, according to Gallup. His plummeting numbers come as the GOP seeks to push through the proposal to repeal and replace...

    President Trump’s approval rating went up on Wednesday despite the continued onslaught of criticism by the liberal American media. This comes one day after General Flynn resigned as National Security Adviser to the president.

    Japanese polling firms found solid support for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Florida this past weekend to spend time with his American counterpart, President Donald Trump, though far-left politicians condemned expanding U.S.-Japan ties. The newswire service Kyodo published a poll following Abe’s return to Japan finding that 70 percent of Japanese respondents were “satisfied” with Abe’s visit to the White House and Trump’s estate in Florida, Mar-a-Lago. The New York Times adds that the Kyodo poll found approval of Abe’s work as prime minister generally to be 62 percent, a slight uptick from a month earlier. The Japanese broadcaster...
