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.
