  • What Should Trump Supporters Make Of The Latest Impeachment Polling?

    11/04/2019 12:09:02 PM PST · by Kaslin · 39 replies ^ | November 4, 2019 | Scott Morefield
    As polling on impeachment again dominates the news cycle, itís worth revisiting the issue from the perspective of those who support President Trump. As Iíve noted here before, itís important not to get too wrapped up in these polls. However, it would also be unwise to take the position that thereís no validity to any of them or the patterns they represent. Statistical sampling, done properly, IS a thing, and political types should indeed take polling seriously. However, such polls merely represent public opinion during a very specific window. Right now, a complicit, Trump-hating media is pushing impeachment like candy-flavored...

    President Trumpís job approval rating is the highest itís been in two years, boosted by voter optimism about the economy, according to the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey. The survey found that 48 percent approve of the job Trump is doing, compared to 52 percent who said they disapprove. Thatís up from 45 percent approval in March. The last time the presidentís job approval rating reached 48 percent in the Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey was in June of 2017.
  • Trumpís kick-butt economy driving his approval ratings sky-high: Zogby

    Polling firm Zogby just released a new survey gauging POTUS Donald Trumpís popularity and overall job approval rating and, letís just say, it isnít going to make former President Obama or Democrats smile. The survey found that the presidentís job approval has climbed to 51 percent, the highest of his tenure thus far and higher than Obamaís (48 percent) was at the same time in his failed, scandal-ridden presidency. Whatís really noteworthy about the latest Zogby findings, however, is where the president is drawing a lot of his support.

    I know that everyone is going to see the headline of the latest Zogby Analytics poll of President Trump‚Äôs approval ratings and think ‚Äúoutlier.‚ÄĚ And perhaps that will prove to be the case, but their numbers still definitely have a lot of good news for the Trump administration and their background hints that this could be real. First, let‚Äôs get to the toplines. They‚Äôve got the President above water at 51/48, largely based on confidence in the economy among likely voters. A new Zogby Poll¬ģ of 852 likely voters nationwide in the U.S., conducted from 5/2/19-5/9/19, with a margin of...

    If President Donald Trump has one gift it is that he can command a room ó and a national audience when he needs to. The president gave his second State of the Union Address before a packed Congress and gallery Tuesday night, hitting a theme of political unity hard as he reached out to hostile Democrats who, at several junctures during his speech, stood and applauded. Overall, more than three-quarters of Americans ó 76 percent ó approved of the presidentís speech, according to a CNN poll taken right after he finished. CBS News, in a similar survey, found that 72...

    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 Trumpís job performance as of Sunday, while 50 percent disapprove. The approval number matches Trumpís highest to date from Gallup. He previously received the same rating for the week ending on Jan. 29, 2017. Trumpís 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 Trumpís 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 presidentís improving standing is tied to the economy and the Republican tax overhaul, which offers a glimmer of...

    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...

    Itís been two weeks since Donald Trumpís inauguration, and the new President's work so far hasnít 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. [Ö] Trumpís high disapproval most clearly differentiates his ratings from those of his predecessors. While Ronald Reaganís 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). Ö
