  • Trump Job Approval Rating Now at 34%, New Low [Gutless Gallup Wouldn't Do Prez Race in 2016]

    President Donald Trump's job approval rating in Gallup Daily tracking is at 34% for the three-day period from Friday through Sunday -- by one point the lowest of his administration so far. It is difficult to pinpoint the precise cause of the new low rating, but the changes were apparent on Friday, with his day-by-day ratings near 34% across Saturday and Sunday as well. Trump has consistently been in the news over the past week, including the continued focus on North Korea, even while taking a working vacation at one of his golf properties in New Jersey. The events in...

    According to Gallup polling done between June 2016 and June 2017, “LGBT” Americans are more likely to be married to a spouse of the opposite sex than one of the same sex. […] “LGBT Americans are still more likely to be married to an opposite-sex spouse (13.1%) than a same-sex spouse (10.2%), but the gap is narrowing,” said Gallup. …

    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...

    A former FBI agent and an Internet penny stock adviser were convicted Monday of mining government computers for confidential information they used to manipulate the stock market. Former agent Jeffrey Royer was convicted of racketeering, securities fraud, obstruction of justice and witness tampering for leaking details of FBI investigations and executives' criminal histories to San Diego stock picker Anthony Elgindy. Elgindy was convicted of racketeering, securities fraud and extortion for his role in the scheme. He dropped his face into his hands and sobbed uncontrollably as the jury foreman read the verdict; U.S. marshals led him weeping from the courtroom....

    It’s easy to get depressed that we’ve all but lost the battle for fiscal conservatism, but look on the bright side. The battle for social conservatism is … no, looks like that one’s pretty much a rout too.One of the Internet’s recent misfortunes is the explosion of overheated liberal takes about the resemblance of modern American culture to “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the series on Hulu about a Christian theocratic takeover of the country in which women are enslaved by the patriarchy. Behold the state of the looming theocracy, via Gallup:Of the 19 issues tested, not a single one has...

    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...

    Remember last June how shocked almost everyone was when Britons voted to leave the European Union?By the usual measurements of economic growth (2%), unemployment (down to 4.9%) and standard poll questions on intent, professionals and many others were pretty certain the United Kingdom would decide to remain in the EU that it fought so long and hard to enter.Oops.Turns out, if media had measured “Happiness,” they’d have recognized the historic looming Brexit upheaval. Same for anticipating the Arab Spring.In the 24 months preceding last June’s vote, Gallup found the number of British people who rated themselves happy, thriving, satisfied...
  • 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...

    Monday marks the end of US President Donald Trump's first month in office. US mainstream media spared no efforts in satirizing and criticizing him. The latest Gallup poll released Saturday local time shows that Trump only had a 40 percent approval rating, 21 percentage points below the average rating for presidents in their first month in office. Trump said that "any negative poll is fake news," but analysts believe he does care about the results. Trump's first month in the Oval Office can only be described as bumpy. He is now losing his offensive momentum and is entering the stalemate...

    A majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump's work during his first week in the White House - breaking a record of how long it generally takes the majority of Americans to disapprove of a president. On Saturday, 51 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump, a Gallup poll found. The poll tracks daily approval ratings for Trump by surveying 1,500 Americans. It took just eight days to reach these ratings. It took at least several hundred days for the majority of Americans to disapprove of past presidents.

    More Americans identify themselves as conservative than as liberal or moderate, a new Gallup poll says. While the percentage of conservatives has stayed about the same since the early 1990s, the percentage of liberals has increased and the percentage of moderates has fallen. The poll found that in 2016, 36 percent of Americans said they are conservative, compared with 25 percent who identified as liberal (up from 17 percent in the 1990s); and 34 percent who identified as moderate (down from 43 percent in the early 1990s). Since Gallup started to routinely measure Americans’ political ideology in 1992, conservative identification...

Twenty-two percent mentioned Obama in response to the open-ended question. President-elect Donald Trump was second at 15%. It is Obama's ninth consecutive win, but the seven-percentage-point margin this year is his narrowest victory yet. The results are based on a Dec. 7-11 poll. Since 1946, Gallup has asked Americans to name the...

    In the wake of an election in which Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but Donald Trump was elected president by winning the Electoral College, a survey showed the lowest percentage of people ever in a Gallup poll saying they would support amending the Constitution to eliminate the Electoral College and decide presidential elections by the popular vote. “This year, for the first time in the 49 years Gallup has asked about it, less than half of Americans want to replace the Electoral College with a popular vote system,” Gallup said in an analysis of its poll results. Gallup’s latest...

    A little over half — 51 percent — of Americans are “more confident” in President-elect Donald Trump’s ability to serve as president based on his actions in the past few days post-election, according to a national Gallup poll released Wednesday. Forty percent of those surveyed described themselves as “less confident” in the president-elect in the November 9th to 13th poll, while nine percent had no opinion on it or were indifferent. Gallup noted that the percentage who are “more confident” in Trump days after his election is similar to the percentage more confident in Bill Clinton (53%) and in George...
  • Gallup: Economic Confidence Surges After Trump Beats Hillary for White House

    Gallup’s Economic Confidence Index soared 13 points last week to turn positive for the first time since March 2015 in the wake of Donald Trump’s White House victory. Republicans' economic outlook also improved drastically. Gallup's Economic Confidence Index moved from a slightly negative evaluation (-10) to a slightly positive one (+3). The index had been consistently negative throughout the year leading up to the election. The increase in economic confidence mostly stems from Republicans' more positive views after Republican Donald Trump won the election. Gallup has previously noted that Americans view the economy through a political lens. Republicans have had...

    The 2016 election is over—and Donald J. Trump is the winner. Period. There are no recounts. There are no electoral irregularities. No Russian hacking occurred. And no—signing a petition to get electors to cast their ballots for Clinton isn’t going to happen. Also, rioting in the streets isn’t going to wash away Hillary Clinton’s shocking loss to Trump. It’s the ultimate triggering. Progressive snowflakes are losing their minds, but their violent temper tantrums are mostly centered in the most liberal parts of the country. These nonsensical antics are in Portland, Baltimore, Los Angeles, San Francisco bay area, and Philadelphia....

A few obvious trends emerged in the word clouds published by Gallup in September and formed from 30,000 interviews. .....

    Gallop released results of a poll taken on the 5-9 of October, 2016.  The last time they had asked the question was in 2012.   Support for a ban is the lowest it has ever been, since the question was first asked.I am not surprised at the drop.  It indicates that the population is becoming more educated about crime and “assault rifles”.  Gallup notes that the drop in support for an “assault rifle” ban correlates with a general decline in trust in the government. Historically, people who own guns have been far, far less in favor of placing more infringements...
