President Trump (words that Red still chokes on) has a stagnant overall approval rating at around 40% even after attempting to bomb his way to better numbers.
More troublesome for the golden-haired dear leader are some other numbers about how the public feels about his specific attributes. A Gallup Poll released this week found that a pitiful 45% of Americans say Trump “keeps his promises” despite clear evidence to the contrary. This is down from 62% who believed that nonsense in early February. Gallup also found that only 46% of Americans now believe that Trump “can bring about changes this country needs.” 53% thought that in February. These numbers indicate that a good number of his supporters are starting to realize they have been sold a bill of goods by the greatest con man of our times – perhaps of all time. As it becomes more and more clear that Trump has no core beliefs and is swayed by the idea of the moment, Americans may be beginning to catch on to Trump charade.
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.
