Tag Archives: Donald Trump Approval Rating

How Low Can He Go (cont.)?

There’s nothing like bombing the shit out of something to bump up your approval ratings.  As shown below, Donald Trump is familiar with the concept.  And it almost always works – even the historically unpopular Trump got a small boost from the pre-disclosed (to the Russians of course) cruise missile strike on a Syrian airbase.  Fivethirtyeight has Trump’s composite approval/disapproval ratings now at 41.5% approval against 52.5% disapproval – still a negative 11 point spread.  The numbers may be somewhat skewed by the outlier Ipsos poll which has Trump with a favorable 2 point spread.

Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate.
