We shall know him by his actions
Update: even Rasmussen has him sub-50%:http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administra...
Oh... gosh... he'll never get elected at this rate...
... wait a minute.....
He needs public support to get stuff passed. Power is fleeting, if everyone hates him the midterms will be brutal for the GOP.
Ugh. Don't believe anything the MSM is telling you about Trump.
Midterms will be AWESOME.
Midterms are rarely good for the sitting president's party. Historically, they lose 30 seats in the house, and 4 in the senate.
O'ding dong picked up seats, it let him pass Odumbocare.
That worked out great.
No, he had the seats, shoved ObamaCare down everyone's throats, and then lost the house (63 seats!) and almost lost the senate in 2010.
Sound familiar? Well, it will in 2018.

FOX NEWS Trump Approval Rating Gets Big Bounce Thanks to Millennials and Minorities
"According to a polling report by Quinnipiac University, Trump’s approval rating has enjoyed a slight bounce from 38 percent on Feb. 22 to 41 percent on Tuesday. Meanwhile, his disapproval rating dropped from 55 percent to 52 percent over the same period."
Notice I quoted 4 different polls including the pro-Trump Rasmussen and Fox polls.
You need to start listening to something other than alternate fact news.
Yeah, I remember the polls before the election.
But, but, but, but.....the polls!!!
At this rate he'll NEVER get elected.
Like Christmas EVERY day.
Just gotta love happiness !
Trump approval ratings at an all time low:https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/
Ras has him at 48% (43% adjusted for bias). Gallup has him at 37% (38% adjusted).
I guess it turns out that people don't actually like a President to act like a spoiled teenager after all?
It's like - I can't think of the term - Christmas every day?
Tom C., any reason you’ve stopped updating us on the Rasmussen Trump approval polling data?
s'Has anybody taken a poll on jackstraw ,,,like ability?
Bruce, I think it was informally tried but no one cared enough to respond.
It's like Christmas every day:
Rass: 44% approve/ 56% disapprove (39/56 adjusted)
At this rate, he'll never get anything done! I mean get elected. Wait, what was it?
I have to admit, I liked it better when he played fast and loose on the Saturday twitter feed.
So if half the people are receiving tangible goods from the ‘system’ and somebody gets elected and says I want to change the system….(like maybe reduce what YOU are receiving); what in hell do you expect from polling data?
How about…like 48% disapprove the new somebody….are you not expecting that grasshopper? Are you prepared to celebrate that?
48% of Americans Live in Homes Receiving Government Benefits
Families were more dependent on government programs than ever last year. Nearly half, 48.5%, of the population lived in a household that received some type of government benefit in the first quarter of 2010, according to Census data. Those numbers have risen since the middle of the recession when 44.4% lived households receiving benefits in the third quarter of 2008.
Census: 49% of Americans Get Gov’t Benefits; 82M in Households on Medicaid

Trump is rockin da howse!
As I've posted before, this is the best site:https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/
It has all the polls, and adjusts for systematic bias (in both directions).
It's worth noting that his recent jump corresponds with Trump attacking Syria. Everybody loves a good war!

Nate Silver laid a big goose-egg in November.
"Nate Silver laid a big goose-egg in November."
Wrong... did you even read the election post mortem on fivethirtyeight?
He had Trump's odds the highest of all models (35% or so, while other public models were putting him at 2%) and the result was *well within the polling margin of error* - particularly when you consider that the swing states move in unison (in other words, the swing states are not independent variables - they are covariant so you can't multiply the probabilities together).
There is a multi-part series covering everything:https://fivethirtyeight.com/tag/the-real-story-of-2016/
As I pointed out right before the election, considering that the gambling sites put Trump's odds at 5-1 against and Nate Silver had it at 2-1, you would have made money if you followed his model and bet on Trump.
Pretty much everyone got the election wrong, but 538 got it the *least* wrong, and did a hard post-election analysis of every aspect of the model.
But surely they have it right THIS time. Heck, sooner or later they're bound to get it right.... aren't they?
