Hell with these numbers, Hillary could beat his ass.

Low favorables are one thing. Low approvals are horrible.
Yeah but if we had a Presidential Election in 2010 Obama would have never won as his party took a beating in a mid-term and the economy sucked.

Trump plummets to 37/58 in Gallup. A new low.

It's probably just noise, but wow!  I don't think Obama ever dropped that low, and we're less than two months into Trump's administration.

Maybe. But what's different is that Trump is now (50+ days later) pushing for policy with health care and his budget. It's unpopular and maybe some "give him a chance" people are bailing.
I did not vote for him in 2016 because of his comments about Mexicans and will not vote for him in 2020 for the same reason. However I did want to "give him a chance" on his policies but if he can't this Healthcare Bill right I am at least "on the line" on bailing. I bailed on Obama after the Healthcare Bill I think or "The Stimulus"(can't remember which one.)

His budget will never see the light of day even with Republicans controlling both legislative chambers.

It's going to get worse from this point on. His whole appeal is "DEALS", and he's done a really pathetic job on that barometer.

But for we know, he might try to engineer a another mid size or bigger war to make him a hero or "the horse in midstream" or creates a bubble to postpone the downturn until 21 or 22.

Considering how "competently" he has run things so far, he'll probably lose any war he starts.
"Mister President, you started the war in North Korea with a 30% approval rating. Today's Gallup has you at 12%. Meanwhile 30,000 US troops have been killed and over 200,000 South Korean civilians are dead too. What do you have to say to the American people?"

"You know what? I gave the orders to do the job, and do it right, to the generals, and they screwed up. They didn't take out Kim Jong Un. It's all on them, believe me, it really is."

"But the CIA claims they told you there was a lack of reliable intelligence on Kim's location, and you simply told the military to strike wherever they guess he was. And that was like a cat in the pigeons, so to speak. The North Koreans then responded by firebombing Seoul."

"And because they yuugely screwed up, I fired the generals live on TV. It's all on them. Not on me. And if you excuse me I have another round of golf to play."

Continuation:

The generals fire him in a coup, using the 25th Amendment as a pretext. He is arrested for war crimes, and given a choice to either vacate America or stand trial as a war criminal. Transported to Reagan International Airport, he awaits a scheduled flight of Aeroflot  to Moscow. A dacha near Moscow is better than a prison cell in the Disciplinary Barracks in Leavenworth.

Quote
Most North Carolinians continue to disapprove of President Donald Trumpís job performance, according to a poll released late last month by High Point University following his address to a joint session of Congress.

The survey says 55 percent disapprove of Trumpís work so far; 36 percent approve. This is similar to a survey done in early February, when 36 percent approved, but 52 disapproved of his performance.

It is an old poll, but it does replicate an earlier finding. Ouch!

Also telling:

Quote
The survey said 61 percent of residents disapproved of Congress.

Typical of a throw-the-bums-out scenario. A midterm election in which the President and a Congressional majority of the same Party as the President are both unpopular? Republicans obviously can't lose their Congressional majority in a midterm election because President Trump and the GOP majority in Congress are somehow charmed.  Right?

It's already much worse than for Obama and his Congressional majority in 2009.

Favorability:




Probably our best approximation until about March.


Approval:






Even -- white



Blue, positive and 40-43%  20% saturation
............................ 44-47%  40%  
............................ 48-50%  50%
............................ 51-55%  70%
............................ 56%+     90%

Red, negative and  48-50%  20% (raw approval or favorability)
..........................  44-47%  30%
..........................  40-43%  50%
..........................  35-39%  70%
.......................under  35%  90%

White - tie.
 
Colors chosen for partisan affiliation.  

*National poll, and not a state poll -- the national poll is much more flattering to the President, who is shown in deep trouble in that state, and is likely closer to reality.

I voted for Clinton because I liked her political philosophy over the piece of sh*t alternative. I wasn't out here defending Schulz or Brazile.

I may not be a 'moderate hero, FF Smiley' but I'm not a Democrat either.

Here's news that can blow up against Republicans in one state that the Republican party practically owns. Don't be surprised if Republican support implodes in South Carolina:

Quote
An investigation into corruption at the Statehouse has taken aim at South Carolinaís command-and-control center Ė a network of power brokers and lawmakers who, if the allegations are true, milked the system of hundreds of thousands of dollars by skirting the stateís loose ethic laws.

The probe, led by special prosecutor David Pascoe, has the potential to challenge the stateís political power structure in ways even deeper than the Lost Trust sting in the 1990s.

Though scandalous, the Lost Trust cases targeted lawmakers who could be bought with small amounts of money Ė lawmakers who held relatively little power in the General Assembly.

Now now everybody lets not get too excited over polls after what we saw last election. The entire 2016 election was suppose to calm down everybody including myself with polls but instead I felt more like I had been violated by a huge poll when all was said and done.

Donald Trump and other Republicans may have had a late-season surge that was not captured in polls. We shall see whether this surge has persisted in Wisconsin. A recent poll of Iowa showed Donald Trump underwater in neighboring Iowa, which has traditionally been very similar to Wisconsin in demographics and voting patterns. A hint: Senator Joni Ernst is unpopular in Iowa and will likely be fighting for her political life in 2020.

I am saying nothing about the results of  this poll until I see it.
