    Donald Trump has insisted his performance in a poll assessing his six-month approval rating is "not bad" – despite recording the lowest rating of any president since it started being conducted in the 1940s.

    Just 36 per cent of Americans endorsed his job performance, down from another record low of 42 per cent at the 100-day mark, in a joint survey by The Washington Post and ABC News. Fifty-eight per cent disapproved of his first six months, most of them "strongly".

    The previous worst approval rating after half a year in the White House was 39 per cent, given to Gerald Ford in 1975.

    Mr Trump's deterioration in support comes amid questions over his election campaign's links to Russia, doubts over his ability to negotiate on a world stage, and unpopular policies at home.

    We should cut the person who created this topic some slack. He's a BRIT and doesn't even live here. So he is likely not aware that the polls are all overweighted with Democrats.

    And these two images are supposed to prove you have "won" some kind of victory?

    What have you won? How does President Trump's daily approval ratings affect you as a British citizen living in the UK?

    Your obsession about President Trump's approval ratings is puzzling.

    President Trump is not a disaster because he is trying to fulfill his campaign promises which is a lot more than could be said about the entrenched career politicians. The only disaster around here are all the democrats and liberals having childish hissy fits over Donald Trump winning the election last year.

    The morning after the election I stated that we needed to give Trump a chance..Six months later..nothing legislatively has passed. Some of this ....caused by his poor cabinet choices..family scandals.. You name it..It isn't democrats stopping the president's agenda..Lay the blame on poor management and bloated egos.

    From the same poll:

    Only 37 percent of Americans say the Democratic Party “stands for something,” while 52 percent say it just stands against Trump. The perceived lack of an affirmative agenda weakens the Democrats’ efforts to capitalize on Trump’s failings.

    I agree we need a new political party to counteract the republican party which is know known as the party of idiots

    How the ‘Stupid Party’ Created Donald Trump

    It’s hard to know exactly when the Republican Party assumed the mantle of the “stupid party.”

    Stupidity is not an accusation that could be hurled against such prominent early Republicans as Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Elihu Root and Charles Evans Hughes. But by the 1950s, it had become an established shibboleth that the “eggheads” were for Adlai Stevenson and the “boobs” for Dwight D. Eisenhower — a view endorsed by Richard Hofstadter’s 1963 book “Anti-Intellectualism in American Life,” which contrasted Stevenson, “a politician of uncommon mind and style, whose appeal to intellectuals overshadowed anything in recent history,” with Eisenhower — “conventional in mind, relatively inarticulate.” The John F. Kennedy presidency, with its glittering court of Camelot, cemented the impression that it was the Democrats who represented the thinking men and women of America.

    Rather than run away from the anti-intellectual label, Republicans embraced it for their own political purposes. In his “time for choosing” speech, Ronald Reagan said that the issue in the 1964 election was “whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant Capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.” Richard M. Nixon appealed to the “silent majority” and the “hard hats,” while his vice president, Spiro T. Agnew, issued slashing attacks on an “effete core of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals.”

    William F. Buckley Jr. famously said, “I should sooner live in a society governed by the first 2,000 names in the Boston telephone directory than in a society governed by the 2,000 faculty members of Harvard University.” More recently, George W. Bush joked at a Yale commencement: “To those of you who received honors, awards and distinctions, I say, well done. And to the C students I say, you, too, can be president of the United States.”

    Many Democrats took all this at face value and congratulated themselves for being smarter than the benighted Republicans.
    Here’s the thing, though: The Republican embrace of anti-intellectualism was, to a large extent, a put-on. At least until now.

    Trump's take on the poll from his twitter account:

    Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 17 hours ago

    The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though almost 40% is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!


    He's the master at spin.

    Rasmussen's Strongly Approve is 27% and Strongly Disapprove is 48%; Total Disapprove is 57%.

    34 percent trust Trump to negotiate on America’s behalf with other world leaders, only 19 percent trust him “a great deal.” The other 15 percent trust him just “a good amount.” Two-thirds of the country does not trust Trump at all in negotiations, which is remarkable when you think back to how heavily he emphasized his negotiating skills during the campaign.

    On health care, 24 percent favor the Republican plan over Obamacare. Seventeen percent “strongly” favor the GOP plan, which was not explained in detail.

    Would you say that the more you hear about Trump, the more you like him? Or the more you hear about Trump, the less you like him? Asked that question, roughly 3 in 10 adults said more. Nearly 6 in 10 said less.

    The poll cited in this topic oversampled Democrats by 15 points.

    The same rigged poll on election eve:

    Post-ABC Tracking Poll: Clinton 47, Trump 43 on election eve

    Hillary Clinton maintains a narrow four-point advantage over Donald Trump in the Washington Post-ABC News Tracking Poll, with the Democrat holding key advantages on election eve even as pockets of uncertainty persist.

    You might want to take up that argument with PennsyGuy, who describes Rasmussen as "the only polling company that conducts accurate polling".

    Even by the standards of the most ardent Trumpster, Trump is failing.

    And Rasmussen is the most friendly pro-Republican major poll out there. All the other national polls have Trump much lower.

    And before you repeat the lie that the polls were wrong about Hillary Clinton, no, they were not. If anything, some UNDERpredicted her popular vote, exceeding Trump by nearly 3 million voters.

    Where some polls failed was in anticipating the effect of the anachronistic Electoral College with some smaller Red States. Just like with the US Senate, smaller States get Electoral College votes that are disproportionate to their comparative populations.

    Hillary DID win the popular vote, as the polls said, but not the Electoral Vote from the smaller-population Red States. Making Trump the least popular President in all of US history. As his current poll numbers show, aided by his disastrous non-productive first 6 months in office.

    About what you would expect from a crooked real estate con artist, with no government or public service experience. And a family as dishonest as he is, that he entrusted with senior government positions.

    DONALD TRUMP'S LATEST APPROVAL RATINGS COULD JEOPARDIZE HIS ENTIRE PRESIDENCY

    President Donald Trump’s latest approval ratings spell trouble for his already embattled White House, suffering from near daily leaks and a storm of Russian controversy that continues to consume Washington and the 24-hour national news cycle.

    Trump set a new record low for a second-quarter presidential job approval rating in the history of modern polling, falling below any of his predecessors’ with an average 38.8 percent of the public’s approval between April 20 and July 19, a Gallup poll published Friday revealed. That number is below his first-quarter 41.3 percent average and far below the historical average second-quarter rating of 62 percent.

    Since entering the White House, the president enjoyed a Republican-controlled House and Senate seemingly willing help him realize his broad goal of making America great again. But his full-throttle support of the GOP’s health care bill and working with Republican senators wasn’t enough to get the legislation passed. He’s also failed to convince the Senate to outright repeal Obamacare without an alternative.

    More obstacles are going to come Trump’s way as he pushes for the policies and promises that brought him to the White House. If he’s unable to win back a decent portion of public support and his Republican constituents continue to express their disapproval, slowly eroding his base, lawmakers will likely no longer be so keen to work with him.

    The color key's stop at 60%, its obvious that the electoral college has to go, and gerrymandering must be reviewed or outlawed, we cant have slow, redneck states running our country, this poll map appears to be accurate as far as which states are die hard tRumpsters

    Texas is a surprise, thought they would have been a bit higher in percentage

    West Virginia is no surprise, coal miners approve of Dump-T the most icon_redface.gif




    http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-approval-rating-every-state-gallup-2017-7

    Trump has proven to be a divisive figure in his first six months in office, and Americans' views of how well he's doing his job vary widely across the country.

    On Monday, Gallup released estimates of Trump's job approval rating in each of the 50 states, based on a collection of over 81,000 survey results between the president's inauguration on January 20 and June 30.

    It's worth noting that the extended time interval, while necessary to ensure large enough sample sizes in each state to make reasonable estimates of the president's approval rating, means that views of Trump may have changed amid a tumultuous six months. Still, Gallup's results provide at least some idea of where the president stands across the states.

    The president won all 17 of the states where he had an approval rating of at least 50%. However, approval was in the low 40s in several states he won in November, including in states like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, where he won razor-thin victories that put him over the top in the Electoral College.

    Here's the president's job approval rating in each state
