Trump’s Poll Numbers Sinking

Supposedly Trump aides are showing him sketchy polls that claim big positive numbers, but the reality is far from that. Pew Research is a highly respected polling organization, and the latest results show Trump’s numbers to be low and sinking. Right now, of those polled, only 32% approve of the job he is doing, while 63% disapprove.

I haven’t heard Trump bragging about his poll numbers recently, but then, I tend to turn the TV to “mute” when he comes on. I really can’t stand the sight or sound of him. That means I missed his slurring of words at the end of the speech announcing the Jerusalem move. I had to go back and listen to the clip on CNN.

Trump has been playing to his base since he was elected, with little thought for the rest of us. If his base numbers are shrinking, that’s music to my ears.

  1. His number are shrinking! I’m delighted. Wish the election for the House were next week. As for his slurring………..read Joe Scarborough in this morning’s Post! Scary.

  2. for Ada: Couldn’t agree more. And I did read the Scarborough piece — terrifying. I can’t believe the people who work with Trump every day, and who are supposed to have integrity — like Mattis and Tillerson — are enabling this.

  3. No one comes to mind. I had hope McCain might be the one, but when he voted for “tax reform” I decided there was no one.

  4. And I should have gotten the quote right. What Welch said was this: “At long last, have you left no sense of decency?”

  5. for Ada: Discouraging, isn’t it? And of the ones we might hope for in the Republican Party as people who might stand up and do the right thing, only Susan Collins is staying around. The others are on their way out. I can’t wait to see what Collins’ “ironclad promises” from Republican leadership amount to.

  6. Me, too. And I’ll bet if they renege on the ones they made, she will have no problem voting against the tax bill, if they ever get one put together.

  7. for Ada: I hope so. I was discouraged that she supported it in the first place. I think the Republicans are under huge pressure to get what they consider a “win” — even at the cost of passing something terrible for ordinary Americans.
