Fox News poll: Trump disapproval rises to near record

President Trump's disapproval rating has jumped to 56 percent in a Fox News survey released Wednesday, just one point shy of the record high in Fox News polling. The survey found a 5 percentage point increase in Trump's disapproval from last month.

Trump has the disapproval of a record number of men, at 53 percent,
white men, 46 percent,
and independents, 64 percent, according to the survey.

The poll comes at a tense political moment following two mass shootings earlier this month, one of which appears to have been racially motivated. Approval for Trump's response to the incidents is just 37 percent, and 46 percent said they believe his administration has made the country less safe from mass shootings.

Fifty-nine percent of voters in the poll say they are unhappy with the way things are going in the country. The same proportion (Fifty-nine percent) say the president is "tearing the country apart," compared to only 31 percent who say he is "drawing the country together."

Researchers surveyed 1,013 registered voters nationwide from Aug. 11 to 13. The results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

1. Something is wrong with this:

(Fifty-nine percent) say the president is "tearing the country apart," compared to only 31 percent who say he is "drawing the country together."

33. a few hundred gop/putin think tank-scripted liars on 1500 radio stations blasting

50 mil a week dominating 40 states with 80 senators for 30 years while getting a free speech free ride, no challenge, from democrats and the left.

at $1000/radio hour 1200 radio stations x 15hrs/week x 5 day/week = about $5BIL /yr FREE

the GOP, ALEC, Putin, COC, the kochs, and all the other racist and corporate sex-on-the-wrong-brain certainty addicted authoritarian global warming denying motherfuckers got a free ride on the most effective propaganda operation in history for 30 years while liberals walked by with their fingers in theirears

That's a massive number for such a question, no leader should be allowed to continue setting policy with such abysmal ratings.

21. He might pull what I call a "crazy Ivan" to shore up his approval ratings.

From Urban Dictionary, definition #2 of "Crazy Ivan":

When a jack ass driving on the highway realizes they are going to miss their exit at the last second cuts across three lanes of traffic to make it with complete disregard of other drivers on the road. Usually causing extreme cases of road rage. Taken from the movie The Hunt for Red October.

23. But 95% approval from Republicans?

I didn't see the party breakdown in the article, but I'm sure it's at least 90% since he is consistent with his blatant racism.

... they just never bothered to join the Democratic Party. Problem is ... we don't always know if we can count on them when the chips are down.

30. I know what you mean, I was an independent for most of my life

I've voted D in every election since 1972, but I didn't join the Democratic Party until 2008.

The reason: in 2008 I wanted to voted for Hillary in the primary. So the only way I could do that (in PA) was to register in the Democratic Party. I have no regrets, and I'm sure that I'll never vote for a Repuke in my lifetime. No doubt there are a lot more like me out there.

They're not interested in reporting the news, they're only interested in creating the drama of a close election.
