From the OC Register

Trump Approval in OC at 37%
Most Orange County residents disapprove of President Trump’s job performance, strongly support gun control, support a path to permanent U.S. residency for undocumented immigrants and are willing to tax themselves to fight homelessness, a new Chapman University poll released this week shows.

On the issue of Trump and how he’s handling his job as president, 63 percent disapprove, while 37 percent approve.
Meanwhile, 60 percent say the country is headed in the wrong direction, while 31 percent believe the country would be better off if Democrats controlled Congress vs. 27 percent who prefer Republican control.
Definitely not Walter Knott's or Carl Karcher's OC.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

"...31 percent believe the country would be better off if Democrats controlled Congress vs. 27 percent who prefer Republican control."

And 42 percent who said they should both be replaced with trained monkeys.

Rasmussen polls by computer call-up. Computer/robocalls to cell phones are currently illegal, so Rasmussen ends up only getting opinions from people with landlines. Those tend to be older voters. They miss all the younger voters with cellphones. This is why Rasmussen always had worse numbers for Obama and Hillary in the past, and it explains why it's so different from all the other current polls in terms of Trump's approval/disapproval.

Hope this puts an end to you trumpeting this inherently flawed poll.

How can this be?

The two latest polls show Trump's approval rating in the black. :shock: Maybe it's the Kanye West effect (Fordama?).

Rasmussen Reports has it 51% approve, and 49% disapprove.
Reuters/Ipsos has it 49% to 49%.

This is where Omar chimes in to point out that the Real Clear Politics Average still shows Trump underwater at 44.4% approve while 52.1% disapprove.

Still, improving, despite all the effort to bring him down.

Look at the history in the daily poll numbers. Trump has been as high as 50% and as low as 39% approval. The next batch of polls should provide a better measure of his approval rating.
This week’s Reuters/Ipsos Core Political release presents something of an outlier of our trend. Every series of polls has the occasional outlier and in our opinion this is one

Washington, DC - The Reuters/Ipsos Core Political poll has a significant realignment this week across a number of metrics. Most pronounced is President Trump’s approval rating which currently sits at 48% with all Americans. His number with registered voters is essentially the same at 49%. Corresponding with Trump’s stronger approval rating, evaluations of his job performance across the board are stronger this week from 57% approving of his handling of the economy to 44% approving of the way he treats people like them. On the generic congressional ballot, our current poll shows a +5-point advantage for Democrats, the smallest lead we’ve seen in recent weeks. --:--

I've finally got you trained to auto-refute your own misleading posts :lol:

Not surprising that you selectively ballyhoo the only two polls that show your boy barely scraping by, but RCP includes 9 polling organizations in their average:

Rasmussen Reports: +2
Reuters/Ipsos: Tied
Monmouth: -3
Economist/YouGov: -9
FOX News: -9 :shock:
Gallup: -11
Pew Research: -12
Harvard-Harris: -12
Quinnipiac: -15

Nonsense. If you bother to click on the link, check the graph of his rolling approval rating...he's exactly where he was last year at this time :yawn

I do wonder who you think is putting forth all this effort you're talking about. It seems to me that trump's biggest enemy is trump, and his second biggest enemy is anyone he's appointed to any job.

Uh-oh, Looks like the American people have had enough of the Mueller Investigation.
More Americans now say Russia investigation is politically motivated – CBS News poll

A year into the special counsel investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, a slight majority of Americans thinks the investigation is politically motivated. Fifty-three percent say so, while 44 percent think the investigation is justified.

Image

Nevertheless, three in four Americans still think President Trump should cooperate if he is asked to be interviewed as part of the Russia investigation, though this is a smaller proportion than thought so at the beginning of the year. In January, 84 percent said that Mr. Trump should cooperate, now 76 percent do.

The shift reveals a hardening stance among Republicans, who are now even more critical of the investigation. While a large majority of Republicans has always seen the investigation as politically motivated, the percentage that thinks so has risen seven points since December. There is an even larger shift when it comes to whether Republicans think Mr. Trump should cooperate with the special counsel. In January, 73 percent said he should cooperate, but now just 53 percent do.

Nothing about the large majorities who want the investigation to continue and for Trump to speak with Mueller?

Right under the first graph it is mentioned that 76% still want Trump to cooperate. No graph available. Also 64% want the probe to continue. No graph available.

Looks more like you're imagining things again. Support for the probe dropped 2% in one poll.

If you like that, you'll love this. (But it will drive Broman up the wall). This one from CNN.
Trump's approval is rising among these specific groups
By Grace Sparks, CNN

(CNN)A Gallup poll released on Monday has President Donald Trump's approval rating at 42%. He has not had an approval rating above 40% in Gallup's poll since it hit 41% in late May 2017, which was immediately after he fired James Comey as FBI director.

...One of the largest areas for growth has taken place among people ages 50-64, among whom Trump's approval has increased by 8 points since December. Other age groups have continued with little movement except for those ages 18-29, who now approve of the President at 29% -- an increase from 24% in November.

Another strong spot for Trump approval is church attendance -- among both those who attend regularly and those who don't. While those who attend church weekly give Trump a 53% approval rating compared to 46% in November, the other big jump took place among those who never or seldom attend church. Thirty-six percent of the people who seldom attend church approve of the job the President is doing, which has jumped from 29% in December.
Trump's approval rating among men has increased from 41% in December to 48% now. Women have remained stagnant, with approval for the President hovering between 31% and 33% since last year.
There have been no significant drops in Trump's approval ratings in any specific demographic group.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/08/politics ... index.html
It appears the Stormy Daniels thing hasn't hurt Trump among Church goers, non-church goers, women, or men. :eh?: :lol:
