Gallup: Trump approval rating falters

after a month of higher ratings.
Approve: 39% Disapprove: 57%

After a strong February, President Donald Trump's job approval rating has dipped four percentage points, to 39%, matching his rating from December at the start of the 35-day partial government shutdown.

The latest poll was conducted March 1-10, just after Trump's second denuclearization summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un failed to produce an agreement. At the same time, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election was front and center as Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, provided potentially incriminating evidence during testimony on Capitol Hill. A weaker-than-expected jobs report toward the end of the polling period also may have contributed to a more tepid approval rating for the president, whose greatest perceived strength has been his handling of the economy.

On a relative basis, Trump's average approval rating since taking office is the lowest of any U.S. president dating back to Harry Truman. Trump's personal high rating, 45%, has been achieved twice in his presidency -- in the first week of his term and in June 2018, after his first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. His lowest rating, 35%, was seen several times throughout 2017, his first year in office.

Approval of Trump remains sharply polarized -- 90% of Republicans, 33% of independents and 4% of Democrats currently approve. Republicans' and Democrats' ratings have not deviated much over the course of Trump's presidency, but independents have been somewhat more variable in their views.

1. that's because...

...trump's a bad President...

The Star, 3-14-2019

" WASHINGTON—U.S. President Donald Trump has warned his political opponents of the possibility that they could eventually be confronted by armed Trump supporters in and out of uniform, telling a right-wing website on Monday that “it would be very bad, very bad” if his backers in the military, police and a motorcycle group were provoked into "getting tough". "

…………………..

Would you support a President that warns his political opponents with political violence?

…I wouldn't, and I don't think most patriotic Americans would either...

...beware of the Red Hats...

10. He's hurting the country

He's made us weaker across the board. He's corrupt. He fosters corruption. Everyone around him is going to end up before a grand jury.
He's weak. He talks tough and puffs himself up, then fawns over every dictator he meets . They've all got his number. Our allies no longer trust us and we can't trust the regimes he's sucking up to. This isn't TDS. It's a combination of patriotism and the survival instinct. This fool is putting all of us at risk.

14. This is all part of the public record

There are speeches, interviews, videos and judicial proceedings that document every one of those claims. Lalalalala really won't cut it anymore.

16. He is always at 42% (+/- 5%)


Get him to 36% or 48% and that will be news.


Other than that....
