1. I think it will go down to 33 percent approval..65 disapprove..

I doubt it will go lower..there are always a third will will support anyone with an R next to his/her name..But when he gets to 33 vs 66 it will be a message..and it will stay there, unless Drumpf changes..and that is very unlikely..it could happen..but..far more likely the Cubs will win a second time, then the idiot making major changes.....Perhaps the sun will come up in the west....that is more likely....

22. It could go lower.

At some point the republicans are going to start saying that Trump is really a democrat in disguise as they distance themselves from him or turn on him as they try to get reelected in 2018 and 2020. The rabble who are being hurt by Trump will turn on him if they think that he is not a true republican. Of course, he is a true republican in every awful despicable way.

Go Cubs!

25. Because he is President and can appear before the joint session of Congress

where the members have to be polite (yeah - Joe Wilson was an outlier) -- and after he more or less competently read a teleprompter speech, he was praised for being able to do that. I suspect that he had a very good day after he did this - before the Sessions problems came out. (A good day impacts 3 data points as this is a 3 day tracking poll)

This is the period normally called a honeymoon. The country is seeing the President announce his cabinet and, in Trump's case, a Supreme Court nominee. Normally, this and the innaugeration is when the public sees the person become the President. Most things he has done have been ceremonial - making announcements and welcoming world leaders. With the latter, the meetings are important, but we often hear little unless the two leaders opt to speak of agreements. Note that the conversation after Trump's biggest engagements has been distinctly weird - twitter memes on his very excessive handshake with the Japanese President followed by twitter memes that he refused to shake the hand of Merkel! (The best was the Irish Prime Minister annoying Trump by pointing out ST Patrick was an immigrant.)

For comparison purposes, for the same time period that Trump has been in office for President Obama - he was over 60 percent approval except for one day where he was 59. http://pollingreport.com/obama_job1a.htm (scroll to bottom as the poll has most recent days of the first term first.) Now, Obama was elected in a real landslide, but with all the controversy of 2000, President Bush was in the high 50s and 60s as well in the first three months of his first term. http://pollingreport.com/BushJob1.htm

Not to mention, Trump there have been few real problems in the economy or the world that have impacted these numbers. Obviously the middle east is still a problem - though the 68 country Obama coalition is on the verge of freeing Iraq from ISIS and has made significant progress in Syria. (Expect Tillerson/Trump to speak of that coalition - maybe not mentioning Obama or Kerry) In addition, NK has been setting off missiles. Compared to what Obama faced - with the economy near to going off the cliff and far hotter wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Trump's loss of the support that started to gather around him after he won -- has been the result of stupid mean things he and his team have done -- and who he surrounds himself with.

It's one thing for republican voters to know that they have been SUCKERED by Comrade Casino and his Fake Promises, and another for the republican Trumpies to be rubbing it in their faces by living it up with THE RICH AND FAMOUS in Aspen and at Marr a Lago week after luxury week.

in what he and his Pal Bannon try to pull. North Korea is off the table until China says so.

There was a General during the Mid Fifties Chastising McCarthur for wanting to cross the Yallo River into China. The Chinese Army is able to hit you with a 100k Troops for a Hundred Years.

Funny how people forget the truths of History.

10. The sad truth of numbers

We have increased the lethality of our anti-personnel munitions.

From Claymores, beehive rounds to the MOAB and finally Nukes. The days of a human swarm are over.

The massacre will be horrific. China knows this and has embraced tech over numbers.

On edit: These massive troop movements will starve and their effectivness drops daily. We keep blowing the supply lines and they go hungry. No Ho Chi Minh trails in 2017.

First will be total Stock Market disruption caused by the Flash Traders working out of Hong Cong. Second will be the use of massive numbers of Troops across the River into the North Korea Mainland. Still a numbers game,and our Military has adapted to Desert Warfare and in that lies the issue.

When it's their grandmaw's Meal on Wheels food that goes away or their recently acquired health insurance yanked out from under them, maybe their shouts of Trump, Trump, Trump will turn into Dump, dump, dump!!

Once they learn how they were played and duped, I predict a sizable portion will jump ship. Not all, mind you. Some will refuse to believe their hero lied to them. But the ones who get bitten on the ass for their loyalty and vote will turn on him. I would use pay per view to see that. Pitchforks and torches surrounding him ...wherever he goes. No place to run, tRump. No place to hide.

Unlike healthcare and other things the tHing with meals on wheels is easier to understand.

You either support it or not . There is no alternative plan being put forward to replace it.
