Trump approval hits record-low 32 percent in AP poll

Mod: The Cro-MAGA Man fails to impress.

Trump approval hits record-low 32 percent in AP poll (The Hill link): President Trump's approval rating has sunk to a new low in a new Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey. Thirty-two percent of Americans polled said they approved of Trump's handling of his job in office nine months into his presidency, while 67 percent of those polled said they disapproved. The president's approval rating in the poll is down from 42 percent in March and 35 percent in June.

Trump also did not fare well among Americans who were asked if he understands their needs and problems. Sixty-four percent of Americans said the president did not understand their needs "not very well" or "not very well at all."

Trump's job approval rating in the poll is lower than many released recently, as he is hovering around 40 percent in the RealClearPolitics average of such surveys.

The AP/NORC survey was conducted in late September and early October, at a time when the president was taking heat for his response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico.

The president stirred controversy when he attacked San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz on Twitter. Cruz had criticized the federal government's response to Hurricane Irma, which left virtually all of Puerto Rico without power.

The Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs research survey was conducted on Sept. 28-Oct. 2 among 1,150 adults. The margin of error was 4.1 percentage points.

Poll: GOP's popularity 'is in freefall' (The Hill link): Registered voters are increasingly turning away from the Republican Party and looking to the Democrats to solve America's biggest problems, according to a new poll.

A Suffolk University-USA Today survey released Thursday shows that 62 percent of respondents now have an unfavorable view of the GOP, a 7-point jump in unpopularity for the party since the same poll in June. Just under half, 48 percent, feel the same way about the Democrats.

The poll found that 43 percent of voters look to congressional Democrats to protect families when it comes to health care, compared to 15 percent who trust President Trump on health care and less than 10 percent who say the Republican Party should lead the way.

“The Republican Party is in freefall,” said Suffolk University poll director David Paleologos. “In March the GOP had a 48 percent unfavorable rating, in June the negative swelled to 55 percent. Today the GOP unfavorable is 62 percent. What’s next?”

When it comes to the president, more than half of respondents say Trump has not delivered on his promises. Nearly 57 percent of respondents say they want to see a Congress elected in 2018 that will stand up against Trump, while just 33 percent want Congress to cooperate with Trump and his legislative agenda.

Trump's unfavorable rating has climbed 2 points, to 57 percent, since the last poll. Just over a third, 34 percent of respondents, say they view Trump and his administration favorably.

Almost two-thirds of the country, 64 percent, say America is on the wrong track. That number has jumped 8 percent since June.

The Suffolk University-USA Today poll was conducted from Sept. 27 through Oct. 1 and contacted 1,000 likely voters by telephone. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.

    1. Investigating Hillary proved to be fake news. Building the wall proved to be fake news. Repealing O-care provedto be fake news. Trump being able to unite congress proved to be fake news. Trump promised me he would get more done in his first hundred days than any other president.


      I officially regret voting for him.

  6. Can you really believe any of the news media. The most recent problem is there reaction to Weinstein. He appears to be quite a malignant personality yet he is not headline news. Nor do the nighttime host pillory him. Is this not hypocritical?

    7. I think we need to ask how Trump has decided that his vulgar talk about woman's private parts is "locker room talk." Trump is obviously not a visitor to the gym to workout so how is he privy to locker room talk that men have regarding women? What I am really waiting for is the Warton School of Business mates of his who took his tests and did his papers for him to speak up about his cheeting days at college. What are they waiting for?

  7. Hypocritical with the Hollywood pervert Weinstein? he choose the day of atonement to say; but i love women.
    During this month's Hispanic recognition week; Rep. Sanchez, called out for Nancy Pelosi to step down, and allow the younger Dems to lead. All you hear now is the sound of crickets from the press and the Democratic Party. Sounds like discrimination; big time.
    Of the recorded Hurricanes; the largest Natural disaster's affected the United States and Puerto Rico. The press coverage was less than a week; due to the expertise of the Trump administration's ability to get the job done.
    Americaa is resilient; not the press, the polls show that no one trusts a journalists.

    4. I didn’t vote for Trump but fair is fair. Weinstein is not the headline with anyone in the Hollywood set. Yet they feel, and get the media coverage, to bash anything they don’t agree with. When it comes to their own, not so much. They all had to know Weinstein is a pig. He’s the tip of the iceberg! I read many of you posting polls as fact when today, a poll is only as good as the demographics, the questions and how they’re asked. But you believe them. You believe the media. Trust but verify-a lot of you don’t seem to do that!

    1. Trump just wants something to get through Congress so he can get credit for it. Right now he can't pass anything. So now he's turning to the Democrats. He doesn't care what passes, or who passes it. He just wants credit.

  19. Just got back in town and read about the FD here on the Tattler. I will share my comments at a later date. I can say that after that first CC meeting I called and got a meeting with our new city manager right away. What a positive meeting that was, a totally different concern for our community than any past manager has shown. I think were on the road to a supported FD and a safer city.
