Trump job approval slips 4 points in Gallup poll

Source: The Hill



By Brett Samuels - 03/14/19 08:25 AM EDT

President Trumpís approval rating dipped by 4 percentage points to start March, according to a new poll, dropping below 40 percent.

The Gallup poll released Thursday showed Trump with a 39 percent approval rating, down from 43 percent in the second half of February. Trump closed the month with an unsuccessful summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and saw his former personal attorney Michael Cohen deliver explosive testimony before House lawmakers. March also opened with a less-than-stellar jobs report.

Trump's approval rating is buoyed in large part by Republicans, 90 percent of whom gave him positive marks in the Gallup poll. Thirty-three percent of independents approve of Trump, as do just 4 percent of Democrats, according to the poll.

The poll surveyed 1,039 people from March 1 to 10 and has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

13. I agree. Almost 40% still approve of him? Really?

I think it has to be the dominance of RW media. And their disinformation campaign for the last couple of decades. Some of these voters are truly deplorable racists, but many actually believe the Dems will abolish the 2nd amendment, will force abortions on young women, force people to turn gay, open the borders completely to all gangs, and much more. They are truly afraid of Democrats attaining power from everything they hear.

2. A lot of people who voted for him are just like him in that they will never admit they were wrong.

They will go down with the ship before they admit they were conned by the Con.

3. Two more Republican friends, down to do

some fishing with my husband, told me separately that they donít like to watch the news. This was even though I had courteously tuned the TV to Fox to pick up the evening news.

These arenít the first times Iíve heard this from Republicans. (We live in Georgia.). It doesnít mean they wonít vote Republican in 2020, but itís obvious they havenít liked what theyíve been hearing for some time, even though Iím guessing they only watched Fox News before they started avoiding it.

11. It's a start

Remember at the beginning of 'Gone With the Wind' how jubilant the southerners were to go to war, then cut to post burning of Atlanta when their sentiment had been shaken. No more yips and hollers. Those people never really learn, but the quiet gets nice. Waiting for the quieting again when their hate no longer wins elections nationally.

It was very accommodating of you to put Fox on for your guests. That's how you show others that decency out shines everything else.

12. Yes. Exactly. Times are different, but I think now and then

of how the big, angry surge in anti-immigration, anti-alcohol, anti-science, anti-secularism conservatism in the 1920s, the Scopes monkey trial era, seemed to have disgraced and burned itself out. That one followed giving women the right to vote just as this follows election of a black president, attempt to elect a woman, and big advances in gender rights.

So as you say, we're hoping and waiting "for the quieting again" and wonder if we might be seeing signs in our friends. These guys are both very conservative, but not the crazy, hostile sort or they couldn't be friends with us.

4. "Thirty-three percent of independents approve of Trump, as do just 4 percent of Democrats"

those so-called "Democrats" are NOT Democrats. They lied to the pollster.

5. 4 points means it could be 35.

Which is about the number of truly crazy people we have in this country. 28% of them are so hard core they won't be reached in this lifetime.

6. Your 28% number

is most likely the real hard number. Polling is a interesting issue. All the q and a is designed to produce a certain outcome paid for by the sponsor.

8. Learned a ton by doing polling part time

years ago. It is all about a probable out come.

When it comes to Presidential Elections,it is all about the Independent Voter swings.
