Poll: Trump's approval rating hits new low in Pew poll

Source: The Hill




BY BRANDON CARTER - 12/07/17 04:21 PM EST

A new poll released Thursday shows President Trumpís approval rating has hit a new low.

The Pew Research Center poll finds that just 32 percent of Americans approve of how Trump is handling his job as president. Sixty-three percent of Americans say they disapprove.

Trumpís 32-percent approval rating is a new low in the Pew poll. The groupís most recent survey, conducted in October, found Trump held a 34 percent approval rating after three consecutive surveys dating back to February measured his approval rating at 39 percent.

The 63 percent of Americans who disapprove of Trumpís job as president is the highest Pew has measured in the poll, topping a previous high of 59 percent in Pewís October survey.

14. Trumpsky is only supported by his deplorable cult, propped up only by RW media lies and

MSM silence regarding his obious evil.

3. So What?

It's not far away from it's floor. Doubt we'll see lower than 30%....even if he were to shoot someone on Park Ave.

23. I disagree. I tend to be an optimist, and think his base will erode over time.

I've never been willing to call them deplorables and write them off.

I think most are stupid and easily conned.

But even an idiot will notice if you steal his money.

5. Nice!

I'd hope for lower, but we all know that ~30% of the USA is nothing more than pond scum.

10. Interestingly...

I was listening to a Katy Couric podcast the other day with my son; she had conservative Norman Ornstein on. Ornstein said the 35% base still supporting el Trumpo constitutes 65% of the Republican vote! 65%!!

6. I guess the lesson here is...

Nearly 1/3 of the country are deplorable / crazy. It is not only sad and tragic, but ultimately dangerous for democracy.

13. I don't think that is accurate

Turnout was over 89% and the Nazi party (in 1933) got about 43% of the vote. Maybe the 30% number was from an earlier year election.

16. Maybe they meant 30% of population incl non voters, I dunno. We certainly seem to have the same

malignant 30% who are cultist-extremists and who will never change.

19. Seems to be

something present throughout the species--about 1/3 of humans are programmed to support authoritarian governments and fascism.

Works the same here as in Germany and Italy during earlier times.

Wait until the economy tanks. We are overdue for a recession, and their tax scam will push us over the edge. Trump will be in the teens.

18. Apparently that doesn't matter. He's President, and the most popular Senator in the nation

is ousted from his job.

What a crazy, mixed up world, huh?

21. At that rate he'll be at less than 10% in a year.

How low can he go? No one knows.

22. None of this matters.

He'll get his tax reform. He's changing education in a way we can not rebuild. He has a Supreme Court that supports a Muslim Ban which means we really are Hitlerian now. He's fomenting a fire in the Middle East and probably hoping for an attack on our shores that will allow a military crack down. He's getting rid of net neutrality and climate change policies.

He's already created structural changes that will take a generation to turn around, if ever.

He has the RW power elite working darkly and endlessly for their policies and they give a contemptuous flying fuck for the people being measured in polls. They don't need them.

They are doing everything they want and if they lose Trump as the figure headóit doesn't matter. It's about the structural dismantlement of democracy and they have that well under way.

28. Exactly.

And Trump will likely be making additional Supreme Court appointments, resulting in a hateful, bigoted, reactionary rightwing Court lasting decades.

This disaster would be taking place regardless the Republican president in office.

25. of course

I don't trust any of these polls.

This Racist/Facist prick has tapped into something dark that the polls can't show.
Racists and Facists aren't going to identify themselves by telling who they'll vote for in any poll.

We need to register as many Dems as possible!
Stop believing in polls and just work to elect as many Dems as we can.

The only vote we should be focused on is the one that puts one of ours in office and that poll is done one time each Nov.

Believing in polls is what got us here in the first place..NEVER will I fall for that crap again.
