CNN: Donald Trump is in a very bad polling place

(CNN)President Donald Trump has never been terribly popular with the American public. But in the past month, Trump has seen a sustained dip in his numbers that have to be concerning to the poll-obsessed President.

Of the 10 major national polls conducted over the past month, the highest -- repeat: the highest -- Trump's approval rating has been is 38%. The lowest is 33%. Trump's average approval rating over those 10 polls is 37.1%. His average disapproval? 57.1%.

That Trump is at his polling nadir is also borne out by Gallup.

Trump's weekly average in Gallup's daily tracking poll is at just 35% for the week of October 29. That matches the lowest Trump approval rating for any week of his presidency to date. (Trump's approval averaged 35% for the week of August 27.)

1. As the Mueller indictments pile up, those poll numbers will go down even further.

Hell, it may even go down as Trumpy makes an utter fool of himself in Asia.

When he and his kids lose all of their money from RICO convictions, we should all celebrate. Oh. And our old friend Roger Stone should spend the rest of his life in prison. He's skirted the justice system for long enough.

6. Why do I keep seeing these stories about "record low poll numbers "

Yet the numbers quoted are about where they were last time?
I haven't counted, but it seems like for the last 6 mo, approval is 31-33 and disapproval is 58-60.

I want to see much lower, of course. But does it really help the cause for truth with stories about "significant dips" when they aren't really significant?

To me, significant would be 25%. Until then, don't wake me up.

9. Record low polling numbers at this point in his administration

 

Or something like that. Usually this caveat is included in news stories on the polling numbers Trump is getting. The assumption being a newly elected president would be popular because people want to give the new guy a chance to get things right. With Trump that hasn't happened. In a record setting kind of a way.
