    A plurality of Americans think the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. A majority think Trump should resign if evidence is found supporting that growing conclusion.

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    1 In 3 Americans Give Donald Trump An 'F' | The Huffington Post

    Seems low to me ... what has Trump accomplished during his term to unite the United States?
    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.

    The most reliable way to generate group cohesion isn't through shared interests; it's through shared *hatred.* Maybe he's a genius?

    But 1 out of 3 giving him an F means that 2/3 of the country thinks he's doing a passable job...... That does sound odd.

    Yes those numbers are bad.

    New Polls Show Trump’s Approval Slumping, Despite Economy | Fortune

    The critical new number from today's poll is the steep decline of approval amongst independent voters, i.e., swing voters.

    "But independent support took a cliff dive, with approval dropping from 47% to 31%. "

    Yikes. The base isn't big enough to offset that.

    The wonder is that the numbers are that high with the 24/7 media blitz.

    YMMV.

    Yeah, with Trump on Twitter spewing nonsense 24/7 you would think it would be lower. But deplorables don't care, they just love that he makes "Librul heads assplode"

    In the latest average, Trump's approval rating is about 38% in eight polls from ABC News/Washington Post, CNN, Gallup, IBD/TIPP, the Kaiser Family Foundation, Quinnipiac University, Selzer & Co. and Suffolk University.

    The swing voter in November and 2020 will not be the Republican to Democrat or Democrat to Republican It will be the non-voter to voter.

    The Trump train wreck is motivating millions.

    Not Republican to Democrat. But Republican to Independent.
    Trump's support is high among the GOP base. But that's because Republicans are leaving the party in droves, causing the base to be small and concentrated. So poll numbers are deceiving. A high percentage of a small number still leaves you with a small number.

    The Republican Party Is Shrinking
    But there’s a catch to this overwhelming support from Republican voters. One of the biggest reasons why it’s so high is because the party itself has been shrinking to Trump’s most loyal and devoted followers. Rather than commanding the close to unanimous support of half the nation, his base accounts for slightly more than one-fifth of the electorate. Other presidents who saw similar displays of absolute devotion from a shrinking number of voters? Nixon as Watergate was reaching a fever pitch, and George W. Bush towards the end of his second term as the Great Recession was revving up. However, the situation with Trump is even worse. Nixon and Bush The Lesser merely lost the party’s support. Trump is actively making it smaller and more extreme.

    I don't think it's news to anyone that young folks tend not to be big on Trump. Among the 25-35 crowd living in urban areas, I'm guessing it's more like 15/85% for/against. I'm in that demographic, and I can think of only one of my peers who is a strong Trump supporter, and dozens who are against him with various levels of vehemence from distaste to extreme revulsion.

    Some conservative strategists have suggested that California may be a harbringer of what's to come with national politics. Back in the 1990s, anti-immigrant policies still played well to a significant portion of the electorate there (mostly older). The California GOP went all in on an anti-immigrant platform. Now, the California GOP is nearly defunct.

    https://www.latimes.com/local/politi...123-story.html

    The question for the GOP is: what happens in 20 years when a significant portion of Trump's voter base is dead? I don't see today's 30 year olds suddenly changing their minds on immigration.

    I look at the 538.com aggregator daily, and I've been surprised that his approval has not rebounded despite the end of the shutdown.

    Their model takes a while to move, as a general rule. They use a lot of polls, and weightings, so it tends to be pretty stable in the short term. Pretty much every aggregator moves slowly as each new poll is just a fraction of the total, and they tend to keep older polls in for a while.

    It has stopped dropping, and absent any big news is likely to regress towards the long term average. Trump's long term average is pretty stable, for a pol.

    For comparison, Reagan was a 35% approval entering his 3rd year as Prez.

    OTOH when that crook Nixon was run out of office, he still had 30% approval IIRC.
