Even notoriously right-wing biased pollster Rasmussen now has Trump under water by double digits.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-five percent (55%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 27% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 47% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20.
Red is standing by his prediction that Trump will not drop below about 35% approval. It appears now, however, that there may not be a strong floor for his “strongly approve” number. That could easily dip into the teens at which point almost no one in Washington will be paying attention to him – except to tune in for regular updates in the “high comedy” act which this administration has become.
“No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly,”
Poor, poor pitiful President Donald Trump.
The Donald knows about unfair treatment of a sitting president. After all, when you question the very eligibility of a person to be president and accuse him of criminal acts without a shred of evidence, some might call that unfair. Here are just of few of the things he said about his predecessor.
“I want him to show his birth certificate. … There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like.”
“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that @BarackObama’s birth certificate is a fraud.”
“I think he’s a threat to our country.”
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
“I think he’s the worst president maybe in the history of our country.”
Red really likes that last one.
“He’s nothing but a bullshitter.”

How could any self-respecting real estate developer credibly deny that. It’s in the job description – “Must have line of excellent bullshit from here until next Tuesday.” A real estate developer without bullshit is like an artist without a canvas, a hitter without a bat, a taxi driver without a steering wheel, a teacher without a blackboard, a . . . well you get the picture.
The latest Quinnipiac University Poll has Donald Trump at a 35% approval rating -with 57% of Americans disapproving of the neophyte president. The negative 22 point spread is unprecedented for a president less than 3 months into his first term. Trump only seems to be holding on to the hardcore GOP base with 79% of Republicans still approving of his job performance. Overall, he is underwater with men, women, whites, non-whites, Democrats, Independents and people with brains. Other than Republicans he still has support from Russians, alien smugglers, polluters, Israeli settlers, late night comedians desperate for material, golf course designers, the criminally insane and anyone predicting that the end times are near.
Even more troubling for Trump are poll numbers showing that –
64% think he is not honest (Red can’t imagine where they get that idea)
66% think he is not level-headed (Well how could he be with that hair?)
55% think he is not a strong leader (Can’t even get wife to live in the freaking White House)
57% think he does not care about ordinary Americans (It’s difficult to really care about ordinary Americans when you have never actually met one)
It is really hard to make a comeback when 2/3rds of Americans think you are a liar and there is objective proof to back that up.
“Let me go very, very dark on you. The president of the United States put his own reputation, the reputation of his predecessor and the reputation of his nation at risk to get at least a draw out of the next 24 hours of news.”
