Seems that Trump's approval rating in his favorite poll that him and his minions love to cite when he breaks a mediocre 50% is not so favorable to him, and hasn't been for going on a month now.

Must be the fault of "Fake News", "the Obama shadow movement", or "Hillary Clinton". Or you know what? Maybe Rasmussen now has a liberal bias;)

And because it is Rasmussen with their bogus methodology that nobody else uses - you can take a solid five points off that approval rating to obtain the real number.

Oh, no doubt. I'm just amused at how Trump and his lemmings haven't talked about Rasmussen in what is perhaps a month now, or close to it.

eventually, Rasmussen will realize that they can make more money by just putting his baseline approval rating at eighty percent. it's not like anyone who actually takes Rasmussen seriously will question that. then they can spike it up to ninety five percent or so sometimes to really get his base hot and bothered.

Rasmussen down to 44 percent approval? That must put Trump's real-world approval somewhere around 40.

Republican Congresspeople will be refreshing realclearpolitics until Trump's approval dips to their predetermined magic number, and then suddenly they will develop a moral backbone again.

1. Rasmussen almost always represents an upper bound for Republican support. Any Republican that can't even crack 50% on Rasmussen is in serious political trouble.
2. 538 has consistently been more accurate over the years, despite howling from the naysayers. They currently have him at around a 40-55 approval-disapproval, which has been hurt by a few percentage points since the Trump shutdown began.

Oh, I know, which is why the orange Chump has been very quiet about Rasmussen for a while. Only when he reaches 50% on Rasmussen is when he tweets something like "MAGA!" to his idiot followers.

FAKE NEWS! Trump is MAGA and most Americans know it. We are the silent majority (at least 80% and we are all 120% behind TRUMP!) Your piddly 20% commie movement just has polls that lie! Trump is the best president ever!

How does it FEEL to have your argument CRUSHED by the MAGA train?

Yes, I guess a Republican president is doing roughly about the same as a Democratic president in a Republican leaning poll, whom people like yourself spent 8 years calling "the worst president ever". Sure is a ringing endorsement in Trump world, eh?

On six different polls released over the past two weeks, Trumps disapproval rating has increased by five points since his Oval Office address.

His numbers should continue to crater the longer his shutdown goes on.

Yes it is! We have been through this before. The left howls when a Rasmussen poll is posted. But as soon as
it drops a little they are posting it with their horns blaring........ Hysterical craziness. So touched by Trump
that he has upset their little elite world. ;)

But I thought Trump was winning? Why is it dropping in the first place? Does Rasmussen now have a liberal bias? Is it fake news?!?!?

I haven't heard any "howling" about Rasmussen polls being posted - I do it frequently. Nor have I heard anyone on the right "howling" because Trump's daily rating has dropped a little. Maybe you can show me a few of these posts you're basing your claims on? That would help.

Except with Obama there was upside, your boy has peaked!
Not really. Trump lost 40 House seats; at this point Obama lost 63, he also lost 7 Senate seats; trump gained a couple. Obama would go on to lose more seats and ultimately control of the Senate. If Obama peaked at all he peaked for the GOP. :lamo.

Gerrymandering did that, because we won a much larger percentage of votes for far less seats, so argment fail.:roll:

60 million people voted against the Trump and the GOP in 2018, 3 million less votes than Trump received in 2016. I believe it was 46 million in 2010 that voted against Obama and the Democrats, 24 million less than he received when he was elected in 2008.

By the actual numbers, Trump got rejected much more than Obama. Gerrymandering and a favorable senate map is a benefit the GOP had over the Dems. All that said, Trump should be embarrassed to lose 40 house seats with the economy the way it is. Goes to show you how bad he truly is.

So you are pointing out that President Trumps approval is about the same as when he was elected, slightly higher than average, and higher than Obama's was at this same time period.

Rasmussen is better than most pollsters but they still consistently error low for GOP especially Trump.


Anytime he wants President Trump can hold a political rally and get a Superbowl size crowd with a equal number waiting outside. When Obama tried that a few months ago he left the stadium 85% empty. A "shadow" is all Obama is.

Sure buddy, whatever you say.

As for Trump rallies, I wouldn't be surprised if half the people there are being paid to be there. The other half are likely just lazy jobless right wing rubes with nothing better to do than go cheer for their demagogue.

All that proves to me is just how racist the GOP and it's base really is and they are so willing to believe the racist bullcrap people like king and palin spout all the time. The right hates democrats, they really hate liberal democrats and there is a special place in hell for a black liberal democratic president. The hatred the right spouted over eight years was incredible. Even yelling you lie during a state of the union speech. Real classy.
