Truth is Trump going left is a good strategy. His 30 percent base will never abandon him and are not politically aware enough to recognize a move to the left. Trump can wrangle in more support and might get back to 50% in time for 2020.

Trump might be a bigot and idiot, but his need to be liked "trump's" everything.

Unfortunately for Trump I don't think Robert Mueller cares about debt ceilings or approval ratings.



I've had thoughts along those lines. And I'd love to see Trump moderate. It is my distinct belief, seeing him in action, that he's ... just not the same guy we've known for years. He seems ... somewhere around 2011 or so, to have started some pretty serious mental decline.

And if you believe in polls, Trump's numbers are approaching 48%. Imagine the outrage if he actually becomes a decent leader.

yeah... I don't think we ever have to worry about that happening. He is a walking travesty.
and you're either reading inaccurate information, or you're being disingenuous. His approval rating is currently at 38 percent. That extra 10 percent you just randomly added on is a pretty important difference....

Of course not. Someone who dismisses someone else as a "walking travesty" will NEVER give anything other than hate towards him.

The man could end up being the best President in history, and you'll STILL find a way/reason to hate.

Same with the people responding to these "polls"

For anyone who's interested in the facts about the President's approval/disapproval rating, here is the Five Thirty Eight page which summarizes scores of poll results.

The Prez remains at less than 40% approval.

You decry partisan BS while performing it.

You can't make this up.

Trump has demonstrated little more than bumbling incompetence to this point.

Let's hope it gets better.



Lol, sure he has, especially right up to winning the election.

Hey as an independent, I'm just as partisan as you are.

Trump is doing just fine, probably above average all things considered.









Your definition of fine is much different than mine. I will say that Trump is performing the role he was intended to.


Trump is an actor, member of my union SAG/AFTRA and gets a pension.

Indeed.

He reminds one of many performers past their prime ... he's got a few tricks, and he keeps repeating them.

Sad closing, really, to a decent if somewhat tabloidesque career...


and yet, here he is, billionaire and president of the United States. A real "One Trick Pony".



That's almost as good as Tony Stark!

Trump probably is best compared to a fictional character. Good point.

Yeah that's the only way to accurately describe him.

Bigger than life!

I don't think it's polite to shame him for his weight.

I do need to ask...scoping over the running list of all credible polls at 538 and Real Clear Politics...Where did you get 48%?

Sorry about the 48% number. I saw it on Drudge and didn't bother to read it, or mark it down, so let just assume his number are more like 5%. Then anything that's better will be a pleasant surprise. I think most people learned their lesson on poll numbers back in November of Last year.

People learned their lesson, but you were excited to tell us that Trump's polling numbers were up?

Ok.

Care to specify?

Cutting of salaried OT pay? Making arms deals with SA?

How's the "lock her up," mantra going?

All speech, no act.

Look, I am sorry. I saw it, and didn't bother to check it before I posted about it. I made a mistake. I will really, really try hard not to make another one, and if this one hurt you in any way, please let me know what I can do to make it up to you. Again, I apologize. I can only hope others find it in their hearts to forgive, I realize some will not.

I think after being stuffed by GOP a number of times...he will get things done with or without them. Maybe a good wake up call that they might not be in control as they think they are.

It takes a big person to admit a mistake and apologize.

Much respect.

Trump seems to have an uncanny ability to judge which way the wind is blowing. While republicans are the party in power, they seem to have a lot of trouble getting anything done as a unified party. Does anyone really like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell?

Meanwhile, democrats are winning some key special elections in districts previously held by the GOP. Yesterday there was an article on ATS about 21 or 27 special elections where the district or region flipped to the democratic column.

Mid-terms are often when the electorate voices its collective opinion about the policies and management of government by the president's party. The reality is setting in that mid-term congressional elections are only a short time away, and he could find himself with democratic control of one or both branches of congress. If that were to happen, everything he is doing now in coordination with democrats will look prescient.

Indeed, Trump's actions are more important than his words. But the rhetoric he is using -- warmly referring to Chuck and Nancy, as if they are fast friends -- is curious. Not to mention switching directions on DACA.

Interesting times, as they say.
