Donald Trump Net Approval Rating Has Seen Big Drops In Republican States Over Past Month

Mod: The damn fool of a president will be carrying on wildly about his useless wall on the tube this evening. The two articles we're posting today are pretty clear indications of the reasons why Trump feels he needs to do so.

Donald Trump Net Approval Rating Has Seen Big Drops In Republican States Over Past Month (Newsweek link): President Donald Trump’s net approval rating dropped in nearly every state last month, with the biggest dips seen in Republican majority states, according to the latest Morning Consult tracker.

Trump’s rating fell in 43 states in December, the survey, which was updated last Friday, shows, and six of the seven biggest drops from the previous month were in states that Trump won in the 2016 election.

The president’s net approval fell from November to December by 9 percent in Alaska, which Trump won in the presidential election. Trump’s rating dipped 8 percent in the same time period in Louisiana and Montana, which he also won in 2016.

Among the states with the largest drops for Trump, Hawaii, with an 8 percent decline, was the only state he lost to Hillary Clinton.

The next highest dips, of 7 percent, came in the Republican states of Alabama, Tennessee and Missouri.

House GOP leaders fear support eroding for Trump’s shutdown fight (Politico link): Several dozen House Republicans might cross the aisle this week to vote for Democratic bills to reopen shuttered parts of the federal government, spurring the White House into a dramatic effort to stem potential GOP defections.

White House officials and Republican congressional leaders worry that GOP support for the shutdown is eroding, weakening President Donald Trump’s hand as he seeks billions of dollars for a border wall that Democrats have vowed to oppose, according to GOP lawmakers and aides.

Hoping to sway skeptics in his party and the broader public, Trump will make an Oval Office address Tuesday night to discuss what he called the “Humanitarian and National Security Crisis on our Southern Border," he said on Twitter. Then he will visit the border region on Thursday.

Vice President Mike Pence and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen will address House Republicans on Tuesday evening. The House is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a Democratic bill designed to fund the IRS and several other agencies, the first of four bills Democrats hope will peel off Trump's GOP support in the House.

  3. About Trump's address tonight ... Is it live or pre-recorded? Is there a time limit applied, or can he spout on for as long as he likes?

    1. the longer he talks the longer he's likely to go off script... just more fodder for the comedians to use in their monologues... which I greatly enjoy.

    3. Yeah, how about lets put up a wall around him so we don't have to see or hear him anymore. Toss him cheeseburgers once in a while. Or not.

  4. Top Dem: 'I expect the president to lie to the American people' in primetime address

    Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) says he expects President Trump "to lie to the American people" during a primetime address on Tuesday about the partial government shutdown and situation at the southern border.

    “I expect the president to lie to the American people. Why do I expect this? Because he has been lying to the American people," Nadler said at a press conference near the border on Monday.

    Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, was joined by other congressional Democrats, including Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-N.M.) and Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), whose twin brother, Julián, is mulling a presidential bid.

    Nadler argued the White House has consistently used inaccurate statistics to bolster its claims about the existence of a crisis at the border.

    1. I personally believe that Trump supporters are idiots, but the article says they are more educated and affluent. Doesn't mean they're not misguided fools.

      I'd like to see a study that throws out the bottom 10-20% of those supporting Trump and those not supporting Trump. I bet such a study would show that those who don't support Trump are better educated and certainly more compassionate. The very poor, who tend to vote Democratic because Democrats are more compassionate and willing to help them, are too busy scraping out a living, have little time or resources for education, and therefore skew the "education" average downward.

      Affluence? Trump supporters probably have an edge in the same way that hyenas are often better nourished than lions because hyenas take and take and take every single scrap.

    2. Arguing Pro & con about Trump supporters educational levels will not prove conclusive for either argument. I am 100% anti-Trump, my I/Q is only slightly above average. However I have an extremely above average I/Q son, who is severely pro Trump, with an income in the upper six figures. WE do not discuss politics, neither of us would be swayed by the others line of reasoning. I am 20 years into retirement and he is nearing the beginning of it. I do think the rate of taxation should be across the board same for all income, my son recently had to pay an enormous sum, just for investing wisely.

  6. It's the stock market. A lot of middle-class Americans lost a lot of money over the last couple of months. We're not so smug and snug when our 401ks get ravaged by a precipitous plunge in the stock markets. Fold in the shutdown, the stupid wall and the 24/7 lying and yep, Trump's favorables are heading down.

  12. Major networks will carry Democratic response to Trump immigration speech

    Several major networks announced on Tuesday morning that they will air the Democratic response to President Donald Trump's prime-time Oval Office address on immigration.

    So far, CBS, NBC, and CNN have said they will carry the response. On Monday, all of of the major networks said they would air the president's speech, prompting Democratic leaders to call for space to rebut him.

    "Now that the television networks have decided to air the President’s address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement on Monday.

    Democrats have yet to say who will deliver the rebuttal.

  17. Since the cat is out of the bag and everyone (except republican stooges) that 'djt' is a complete idiot when it comes to finances and being a president instead of a CLOWN. My suggestion is just this, have countries outside USA to seize all of his properties and sell them off to the highest bidders then use that money to build a wall anywhere 'djt' wants too!
