Who are the persuadable Trump 10% and what do they want?

Since Trump has been in office, his approval ratings have stayed pretty consistent in all of the reputable polls.
He stays within a 10% framework of 35%-45% approval.
Generally, he bounces from 38%-42%.

My question is this. Who are these people that bounce around?
We know that the 35% base are Unreachable Fox News/RW radio deplorables.
But, Iím more interested in those 10% that neither worship nor hate him.
Who are these odd people that blow with the wind 💨 on their Trump affection level?

I think if we knew who they are, where they are, and what matters most to them, we might then know what we could do to target 🎯 and make them permanent anti Trumpers.
A flatline of only 35% would mean a landslide win in 2020 including flipping the Senate.

1. I think, at this point, 10% is unrealistic. Probably looking at something like 3-5%

and what they want is not compatible with Democratic Party values

2. Jobs

Barack Obama kept organized labor and environmentalists voting Democratic as long as he was waffling on the Keystone Pipeline. Once he came down on the side of the environmentalists on that issue, some of the labor folks wanted to fight back, and voting for Trump was a way to do that.

If we campaign heavily on the Green New Deal, we can expect them to vote accordingly.

5. Does it occur to anyone that the polling might be wrong?

Cellphones are regulated differently than landlines -- and that's forcing pollsters to use a mix of landlines and online polling

6. Could be. But they've been consistent for 2 years now.
