Trump Approval Surges During DNC - Geopolitics News

Obama also spoke last night and blasted Trump for not taking the presidency seriously – but Obama’s approval was two percentage points lower than Trump’s was at this exact same point in their respective presidencies.

For the most part there’s been a consensus that this cycle’s DNC has been a complete snoozefest. The speeches ain’t great, and the ads spliced in-between feel eerily similar to drug commercials (except the Dems don’t mention the side effects of their policies).

Two real reliable sources you got there.....

Meanwhile Newsweek, ABC News, and The New York Times have Biden with a 5 point bump post DNC.

Rasmussen is the only daily poll. There is that.

Nate Silver gives Rasmussen a C+ and uses the poll. There are several he will not use. He does give it a Republican bias, but not a big enough one to be unworkable. On the plus side, it's LV, a likely voter poll, which is more stable and predictive, so 538 weighs it more.

All that said, the 538 average for President Trump's job approval increased during the Democratic convention, just as OP said. Biden got a bump in the head to head polling. Nate Silver acknowledges that TRump's position is improving on the main points of the Democratic convention--COVID, economy, protests. The other side is that Biden is over 50%. Even with the enthusiasm gap, that's a lot to overcome.

I’m sorry, you’re not allowed to use actual data to have a discussion of Trump’s popularity. You have to use such scientifically proven methods such as “Did you see all the boaters?” or “I know of at least 3 people on Facebook that have said the’re gonna #walkaway.”

Polling, actual votes cast...meh.

Rasmussen paints a more accurate picture when Trump voters are included.

Which is why Rasmussen was the most accurate polling firm in calling the 2016 Presidential Election. They were off by only 0.4%.

Regardless, both RCP and 538 showed Trump’s approval rising by up to 2 percentage points during the DNC Marx Fest

You say that like it’s also not a fact that he’s underwater in virtually every polling category

Don't project your fact free attitude on everyone.

There are people in the country that do not have an approved news source list. Everyone uses facts when it helps their case, and tries to ignore them when they do not. You have to read the biased sites if you want to get all the facts. To do that, you have to develop a feel for what is factual vs what is wishful thinking. In this thread it is factual that Biden has a 9% edge in the polling average. it is also factual that Trump's job approval has been improving for the last two weeks, including during the Democrat's convention. The Republican convention is coming, so we will see how it fares in comparison.

CNN has Biden with a single point lead, within the Margin of Error, in 15 swing states.

Did you follow the 2016 Election lol?

GOP declined to adopt a platform for 2020, instead simply declaring “Whatever Trump says”.
What is your source for this?

Are you implying that the GOP is allowing Trump to create the platform himself? Good.

Biden was handed the DNC platform, and told you’re doing this, or else!

I don’t want a leader who lets everyone walk all over him.

Trump’s polling has always been in the gutter. He’s always low 40’s or high 30’s. His base isn’’t going anywhere, everyone knows this.

And no one gives a ****.

I did, and Biden’s lead over Trump has been remarkably steady with no fluctuations. In 2016, Clinton and Trump ran fairly close for much of the race.

Is that what you’re referring to?

Been saying this for months. Biden has plateaued. He is not gaining any new support whatsoever. The "big lead" is simply Donnie going up or down in the polls. Biden isn't winning over any new support. Others are just trying to decide whether or or not they are actually going to tell pollsters they support Trump. It is a dead even race and that bodes poorly for Biden. The only real question is how much of the house majority will the democrats lose. The democrats are going to have a turn out problem and that is going to drag down the House numbers. San Fransisco Nancy realized that when she dropped the ice cream on the floor of her mansion and jetted back to DC. The tide is turning against them and she desperately needed to double down on the post office nonsense.
