President Donald Trump’s approval ratings have dropped precipitously in eight major polls, hitting their lowest point in six months. Trump’s declining popularity with voters outside of the Republican Party may put Republicans’ hopes of holding the House in jeopardy.

Eight polling entities — ABC News/Washington Post, CNN, Gallup, IBD/TIPP, the Kaiser Family Foundation, Quinnipiac University, Grinnell College/Selzer & Co, and Suffolk University — give the president an average approval rating of 38 percent, a drop of 3 points from Trump’s previous approval polling average, 41 percent.

Only Rasmussen gives the president a total approval rating above 45 percent. Unlike other polling services, Rasmussen polls likely voters using automated calls made to landlines, which means those polled tend to be older and more likely to vote for the GOP.

Rasmussen always gives higher poll numbers to Republicans than other pollsters and they are always wrong. 

If I were a betting man I would say that by the time we get to November these numbers will be much lower and that by 2020 some will be down in the twenties. 

I think we are just about at the point where all of Trump’s support will be die-hard Republicans who will show up to the polls like good little drones only to be washed away by a blue wave in 2020.

    I am a crisis actor hired by Soros and Hillary to go to beach in NC and play dead.

    This will drive down Trump approvals more.

      tinydjt tweet>3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000…

      …..This was done by the Democrats in order to make ME look as BAD as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Ba politics. I love Puerto Rico!

      “the low official estimate was “because the conventions used for causal attribution only allowed for classification of deaths attributable directly to the storm, e.g.,
      those caused by structural collapse, flying debris, floods and drownings.””

    Trump is really homely looking, isn’t he?

    A landmark collection by New York Times journalist Dan Barry, selected from a decade of his distinctive “This Land” columns and presenting a powerful but rarely seen portrait of America.
    In the wake of Hurricane Katrina and on the eve of a national recession, New York Times writer Dan Barry launched a column about America: not the one populated only by cable-news pundits, but the America defined and redefined by those who clean the hotel rooms, tend the beet fields, endure disasters both natural and manmade. As the name of the president changed from Bush to Obama to Trump, Barry was crisscrossing the country, filing deeply moving stories from the tiniest dot on the American map to the city that calls itself the Capital of the World. Complemented by the select images of award-winning Times photographers, these narrative and visual snapshots of American life create a majestic tapestry of our shared experience, capturing how our nation is at once flawed and exceptional, paralyzed and ascendant, as cruel and violent as it can be gentle and benevolent.

    ” A CNN poll released this week showed Trump’s approval rating plummeting to 36 percent. With the midterm elections less than two months away, the West Wing is girding for Republicans to lose the House and even the Senate, sources said. Ivanka Trump is even worried about impeachment, a source close to her told me. “It’s just horrible,”
    “When books like this come out, he tends to shut down and calls up people he sees on TV saying good things about him.”
    ” Trump is “obsessed,” “lathered,” and “freaked out” that the leaker is still in his midst. His son Don Jr. has told people he’s worried Trump isn’t sleeping because of ~IT~”
    “Trump has instructed aides to call the anonymous author a “coward” in public to $HAME him or her. “He’s going to continue to $HAME this person,” a person close to Trump said.
    “The author will break under pressure or will eventually say, ‘fuck it, it’s me.’” Plans to administer polygraph tests to staff have seemingly died. “Nobody knows who ~IT~ is,”
    “one of the only people Trump continues to trust is Stephen Miller. “The op-ed has validated Miller’s view, which was also Steve Bannon’s, that there’s an ‘administrative state’ out to get Trump,” a Republican close to the White House said. “There is a coup, and it’s not slow-rolling or concealed,” Bannon told me. “Trump believes there’s a coup,”

    “Bitch McCONnell’s staff will ONLY focus on confirming judges before the midterms”

        This is interesting, Feinstein turned the letter over to the FBI that is going to investigate. All I have read is that the letter is about a women and Kavnaugh from high school time. Rape? Sexual harassment?

        Now how are they going to investigate this BEFORE his nomination goes for voting?

        “Asked for a comment, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told reporters:”
        “All I know is what I read, and I wouldn’t make any judgment of it until I get more information.”
        “Multiple sources have told HuffPost that the document in question is a letter sent to (Rep. Eshoo) that concerns a decades-old incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman. Eshoo’s office has also declined to comment, saying the letter was considered casework ― and thus wouldn’t be made public ― since it came from a constituent.”

      “Ivanka Trump should be worried. If her dad goes down in a flaming ball of impeachment, it won’t just be his political career that is toast. Trump is also going to take the family business, which is the Trump brand name down with him.” “The best thing that could happen to the Republican Party would be if Trump announced that he is not running for a second term, but since he is robbing the taxpayers blind and the presidency might be the only thing saving him from being indicted, Donald Trump will never step down or resign.

      Trump is going to have to be impeached, and Ivanka Trump is right to worry because impeachment is looking increasingly like Donald Trump’s destiny.”

    Hey, Grover Nordquist, you got your Stooge President!

    We don’t need a president to tell us what direction to go; we know what direction we want to go. . . . The Republicans in the House have passed 24-plus bills that create jobs and opportunity and strip out regulations. We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don’t need someone to think it up or design it. The leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the House and the Senate. . . . [We just need to] pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become the president of the United States . . . [and] to sign the legislation that has already been prepared.

    If I was a greedy son of a whoremonger with no moral code who grabbed others for my own deviant purposes, wantonly shafted workers of hard earned pay, called black people every bad name in the book BUT black, called fascists “good people”, said facts were always false, openly attacked the Constitution daily, hated the media players, hired many cons & lawyers just like my rotten self to break as many laws possible AND also have past business dealings with international spies and Russian mobsters?!
    And had no real true blue friends to vouch for me?

    Well check my snivelling, sorry ass into a padded room with a cork plugging both of my ends, wearing a pair of baggy brown pants because lawdy my diaper would be over flowing in straight up fear about now.

    The walls are finally closing in on Don-I-Con and I just refilled my teapot full of sweetly smooth schaudenfreude. Popcorn has been added to the grocery list too😉

      I like your comment. Alas, up is down and black is white in Trump’s psyche.

    Plenty did NOT like his disrespect of John McCain. That lost him Independents and even some Republicans, who had finally had enough.

    Then there was the Puerto Rico tweets, denying the deaths of U.S. Citizens because they are Puerto Rican? Yet another cray Democratic conspiracy? Well, that played right into the hands of Omarosa, Bob Woodward and everyone else warning us that Donald Trump is not mentally stable enough to be president.

    His numbers aren’t going to go up that much. There will be fluctuations. But this is by far the worst president ever and his poll numbers will continue to be the lowest of any president since they started recording that stuff.
