Something’s happening here: Trump reaches all-time high approval in WaPo-ABC News polls

Something’s happening here: Trump reaches all-time high approval in WaPo-ABC News polls

Maybe it is the economy, stupid.

The Washington Post and ABC News just released a poll, and it’s not good news for The Washington Post and ABC News.

ABC News headlines the poll: Trump reaches career-high approval, yet faces a range of re-election risks: Poll:

Bolstered by a strong economy, Donald Trump reached the highest job approval rating of his career in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll and runs competitively for re-election against four of five possible Democratic contenders. Yet he remains broadly unpopular across personal and professional measures, marking his vulnerabilities in the 2020 election.

Forty-four percent of Americans approve of Trump’s overall job performance, up a slight 5 percentage points from April and 2 points better than his peak early in his presidency. Still, 53% disapprove, keeping him at majority disapproval continuously for his first two and a half years in office, a record for any president in modern polling.

WaPo headlines the polls: Trump approval rises, but majority also see him as ‘unpresidential’:

The survey highlights the degree to which Trump has a narrow but real path to reelection. His approval rating on most issues is net negative, and more than 6 in 10 Americans say he has acted in ways that are unpresidential since he was sworn into office. Still, roughly one-fifth of those who say he is not presidential say they approve of the job he is doing, and he runs even against four possible Democratic nominees in hypothetical ­general-election matchups. He trails decisively only to former vice president Joe Biden….

The economy is the lone issue in the survey where Trump enjoys positive numbers, with 51 percent saying they approve of the way he has dealt with issues. A smaller 42 percent disapprove of his handling of it, down slightly from 46 percent last October. Asked how much credit Trump deserves for the state of the economy, 47 percent say a “great deal” or a “good amount,” while 48 percent say he deserves “only some” or “hardly any.”

None of this should be happening. The media attacks on Trump are relentless.

Maybe it is the economy, stupid.

after so much negative junk spewing from the likes of the ClownNewsNetwork, MSLSD, Georgie Step-ing-on-top-of-us, etc…. is it little wonder that the average viewer has a poor image of the man… thnk God for LI & others giving us truth….

Saying he’s unpresidential is like saying Patton wasn’t officer-like. Who seriously is worrying about whether or not Trump is guilty of the social faux pauxs they imagine he has offended delicate sensibilities with, if he delivers on all of the promises not a single one of his predecessors would or could?

    He’s “unpresidential” because of the swamp/left/islamic axis’ “uncitizen-like” and “unAmerican” behavior.

    They started it. Trump finished it.

    Don’t fall for that scam.

      “Saying he’s unpresidential is like saying Patton wasn’t officer-like.”
      ******
      Unpresidential is a big compliment for this survey since many of the respondents, “Presidential” role models would be Clinton, Bush, Obama.

        Clinton and Obama had a corrupt press shilling for them.

        In the case of obama, they literally had a diaper squad following him to wipe him whenever he crapped on himself – which was often.

        It’s easy to act ‘presidential’ when the media and the opposing party treats you ‘presidentially.’ When they don’t, squash them like the anti-American cockroaches they are.

      “swamp/left/islamic axis”
      Another good one to save!
      You guys are great this morning!

    This. Telling the pollsters you would prefer Trump refrain from tweeting ar 2am sitting on the toidy is not saying you won’t vote for a 2nd term. Many support Trump because of the insanity of his Opposition despite his sometimes bad manners, some even support him BECAUSE he’s rude and crude responding to his critics.

    puhiawa in reply to MrSatyre. | July 7, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    To say Trump is a poor winner, is like saying Trump is a poor loser. He is both. He is a boor. LOL. I have known many bombastic boors that were effective advocates with juries.

    “Saying he’s unpresidential is like saying Patton wasn’t officer-like.”
    Love that!

He just got more good news. He beats any generic candidate with the tag socialist by 6 points.

“keeping him at majority disapproval continuously for his first two and a half years in office” I believe this statement because these pollsters were so correct over the last couple of years

Given the corruption of the polltakers, and the push-poll type of questions asked – in addition to people not wanting to get grief over their support of a patrio – it’s probably many points higher.

Maybe they finally realized that nobody is buying their fake polls, and therefore their attempts to move the public opinion towards voting democrat will not work.

    It will NEVER stop them. Has is stopped organized crime?

    The swamp/left/islamic axis wants their money.

      They still have hillary clinton winning.

      Identifying a push poll:

      Political parties may conduct surveys containing negative information to test whether certain campaigns messages or advertisements will be effective. A respondent may be receiving a push poll if the survey contains the following characteristics:

      The interviewer does not clearly identify the call center making calls at the beginning of the interview;

      The interview only contains a few questions;

      The interviewer only asks questions about one candidate or one side of an issue; or

      The interviewer does not ask the respondent to provide demographic information such as age, education level or party identification.

    Maybe what they learned in 2016 was that they shouldn’t be pushing poll numbers that make it look like the Democrat is a shoo-in. Instead they need to make it look close (but winnable), so that they don’t depress voter turnout on their side. “Every vote counts!”

It’s probably 60% Dems and 30 Republicans, 10% Independent

Really, it doesn’t make a bit of difference what his poll numbers are good or bad.
Who other than liberals and the insane are going to vote for one of the fascist democrats running for nomination?

    Barry in reply to 4fun. | July 8, 2019 at 12:02 am

    Unfortunately 4fun, 45% of the country are “insane liberals”.

    Another 10% are fools, but might vote either way.

Even if the poll is both competent and honest (which I don’t for a second concede), the questions—and therefore the responses—are meaningless. Consider the question of “approval”. Who might not approve? Those who oppose efforts to police the border and deport criminals would certainly disapprove of the job the President’s doing. Similarly, those who support such efforts but think DJT is too quick to surrender to Democratic congresscritters and judges who sabotage his efforts to do the job he promised to do. That’s a lot of aggregate disapproval, but we don’t know which of the two opposing groups of voters dominate. Of course the leftoids want us to think that the open-borders types would outvote those ol’ nationalistic troglodytes, but that doesn’t mean they’re right. The only question which approaches anything real or useful is, how does someone plan to vote? And even then the importance of the answer depends on the state. It doesn’t matter in the least what a California voter says on a poll, because CA’s electoral votes are all going to the Democrat, whoever it turns out to be. So nothing DJT does or doesn’t do matters so far as CA is concerned.

The real issue is that none of the polls are using the correct methodology for a Presidential election. You have to in reality run 50 separate polls and look at each one and see who wins the all/how many Electoral votes for that state. Then add it up and see who is above 270. Otherwise all you have to do is oversample a particular state or states and you get wildly inaccurate results.

Lest we forget while Hillary did win the popular vote it was due to way over performing in an extremely small number of states, California in particular – her margin there was larger than her total margin. Pull CA and Trump beat her comfortably in the popular vote in the other 49.

Or maybe a few people have decided they don’t want to be the world social services provider…i was annoying some liberals over at the Hill earlier and they were talking about this poll … Laughing at it being 47% … I pointed out that was the % of vote Trump had when he won … They laughed and said Hillary had far more votes than Trump … I pointed out that Trump won 30 states to clintons 20 and it’s the states electoral vote that matters and 1 billion votes in NY Cal I’ll and Mass ain’t going to do them a damned bit of good … They didn’t get it

    I am concerned at the states that are changing their electoral votes to go to the popular vote i.e. Maine.
    Will this have to go to SCOTUS to stop? It appears quite unconstitutional.

I guess I’m going to go out on a limb (sorta) and predict POTUS’s re-election in 2020 — “bigly.”

Too much “woke” zealotry and insanity emanating from the Dhimmi-crats, to pass electoral muster (or, so I hope).

But, if history is any guide, we must all be wary and prepared for the Dhimmis’ bag of lawless and totalitarian dirty tricks, in pursuit of their goal of one-party rule.

How could more than about 3 people in the whole country disapprove of how Trump is handling the economy? He’s working miracles.

    Well, if you’re a fascist and/or get welfare, and want to keep getting that free money and you seek unearned position in return for street violence or receiving payoffs, the economy has little meaning for you.

    On the other hand, if you go to work (or try to), the economy means everything.

    I guess he found that magic wand someone said was needed.

I was reading this

http://azer.com/aiweb/categories/magazine/ai141_folder/141_articles/141_kolyma.html

and where the guy describes his interrogation by the NKVD, the totally made-up stories he was confronted with, I was reminded of the way Kamala Harris totally made up a story and confronted Brett Kavanaugh with it at his confirmation hearing.

It seemed weird and bizarre at the time and I had never seen people totally inventing stories out of thin air like that before in US politics.

    “It seemed weird and bizarre at the time and I had never seen people totally inventing stories out of thin air like that before in US politics….”

    People have never openly advocated fascism, communism or maoism. This is the legacy of obama (or rather, his puppeteers, like soros.)

    Remember: “by any means necessary.” Lying is nothing.

The coup plot continues.

Guess who is prosecuting Bill Clinton best friend Epstein’s perv case? Comey’s daughter!

Think certain clinton evidence will disappear, and they’ll try to “tie” Trump into it? —

Just remember – they’ve had fhree years to figure out how to better rig those voting booths and counting machines.

What it is, is exactly clear.

They cant report dropping numbers in the polls closer to the election if they dont go up at some point.

Maybe the polls are now actually polling some republicans.

2smartforlibs | July 8, 2019 at 4:01 pm

Think what it would be if the propaganda machine would be kissing Trumps “ring” like they did the jug-eared overlord.

So the new common core math makes 53% (approve) and 54% (disapprove) = 100%.

In the style of Reddit

I won two opposing bets on the 2016 election: one for Trump to win, and one for Hillary to win. Ask me anything!
