    Trump's current approval rate is 42.9, based on the average of major polls:
    President Trump Job Approval | Election Other | RealClearPolitics!

    Trump is well behind Obama, and just barely does better than George HW Bush and Jimmy Carter.

    Give it a little time. Americans are still processing his more recent behavior.

    Maybe not. A lot of Trump's followers never check data before they believe it.

    If you go here:
    How Popular Is Donald Trump?
    you can compare their polling numbers by the day for all the way back to Truman:
    President Trump's over all rating for today (day 1,233) is 41.6 approve compared to President Obama's which was 47.5 approve. :wave:

    Gallup? They have a liberal slant in their sampling. So Trump is probably higher.

    The only daily presidential tracking poll left is Rasmussen. The actual person running that poll is a “never Trump” type but keeps his professionalism.

    That daily tracking poll has consistently had Trump between 47-49% for months. Which compares to their job approval polls of Obama.

    The third week of May Trump dropped to 43% in the poll, but has since climbed back up to 48%.

    How many of these polls are the same ones that were absolutely certain that Clinton would win by an impressive margin? considering all that has happened in the last 2 months Trumps figures look fantastic.

    Rasmussen had Romney winning by a landlslide, and predicted the 2018 elections would be a republican victory.

    At least he's consistent.

    According to Real Clear Politics, the average poll predicted Clinton would get about 2% more votes than Trump. She got about 1% more.

    It's not over yet. And as you see, Trump isn't nearly that close to Biden this time around. The only swing state that Trump is behind by less than 3.4 percent is North Carolina.

    It's always interesting when people try and pretend this late in the Trump administration to not be aware the polls in 2016 were correct, they said President Trump would get millions of votes less then Clinton. And he did. The polls were pretty much right on the numbers. where they were wrong was in understanding those numbers for that particular election.

    What's more fantastic is why any President Trump supporter would post a thread talking about President Trump's polling numbers being better then President Obama at this point in their administrations if they hold polls in such low regard? :scratch:

    Rasmussen has always had a right leaning slant, so a 47% would be much lower when the average is viewed.

    Scott has a “never Trumper” now running the daily tracking poll.

    But I trust Scott’s consistent methodology. He did not slant Obama’s numbers.

    Again it is a daily tracking poll. Like a slow flame which eventually boils water the major changes in the poll will be seen over time as opposed to other polling which tries to get snapshots in time based on headlines. The immediate 43% daily figure drop from 49% in late May took quite a few days to climb back up to 48%. Was it an outlier? Perhaps but it was that week where most states were still locked up or at 25% pandemic measures. Then many states opened back up either fully, at 50% and places like Texas 75%.

    Rasmussen:
    Bottom line: Romney 315, Obama 223. That sounds high for Romney. But he could drop Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and still win the election.

    Fundamentals.

    Is Another Silent Red Wave Coming?
    The final Rasmussen Reports Generic Congressional Ballot before Election Day shows Republicans edging ahead by one point, but in essence, the two parties are tied. The survey has a +/-2 percentage point margin of error.


    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds that 46% would choose the Republican candidate if the elections for Congress were held today. Forty-five percent (45%) would vote for the Democrat.

    Trump's base is very loyal. Like gamblers in a casino, they keep betting that someday his promise that they will say, "Please, President Trump! I'm tired of so much winning!" will come true. As they lose and lose and lose--along with the rest of us.

    But it never increases--and I have never seen any poll in which it has been at 49%.

    In my town, I have seen daily protests with large groups of young people who have probably never voted before. My friend, who is in her early 70's but is running for JP, has brought voter registration forms to the protests (and I am sure lots of others have, too). They have had the support of the police, who send sno cone machines down and have attended a few vigils.

    Yesterday, we talked to one of my husband's friends, a sincerely religious man who perplexingly has no trouble reconciling his moral views with the poster child for the seven deadly sins. He said, "Trump got 8% of the black vote in 2016, and he may get 20% this year." If he can believe Trump is a good person, I guess he can believe anything! I did nothing to dissuade him, because the more people who think Trump will get 20% of the black vote, the more complacent they will stay.

    While I desperately hope that Justice Roberts will break from his ideological block and rule that the Affordable Care Act is legal, if he votes with the hardened ideologues that will be the final nail in Trump's coffin (or, as I would call it, the "silver lining.")

    After we get an ethical president elected, we can work on changing the number of Supreme Court justices (as has been done three or four times in American history.)

    He's showing you that the polls were very accurate. They called the vote to within 1%. Because of the electoral college, the system sometimes glitches and the person most voters rejected can win. That's what happened last time.

    Do you really find that difficult to understand?
