Trump Lies Once Again About His Approval Ratings

Axios fact-checks the bullshit:

RealClearPolitics’ polling average places Trump’s approval at 40.9%, significantly lower than Obama’s approval (48.5%) at the same time during his presidency.

Rasmussen Reports’ latest numbers, from Friday, put Trump’s approval rating at 44% — not “around 50%.” Rasmussen, whose “likely voter” model tends to favor Republicans, also had Obama at 44% on the same day in 2010.

Trump’s numbers have ticked upward, and his current approval rating is higher than the low point of Obama’s presidency (39.8% per RCP). But Trump’s rating remains below the 48% that Obama averaged over 8 years, and far below the 57.2% rating he had when he left office.

      Fake polls

            Then why do you not want to tell him, mofo?

      I’ve long-believed that a solid third of Americans are deplorable scum. This corresponds roughly, I believe, with the number of people who identify as fundamentalist religious.

      Trump’s core base.

      • JCF

        Probably most are. But some are just dyed-in-the-wool RACISTS, w/ no belief-system besides “All White, All Right”.

        I totally agree. I wish we could put that one-third on an island somewhere where their dumbfuckery only hurts themselves. Then we could have a sane America.

    • My sentiment exactly. 40% of Americans approve? There continue to be way too many people with their heads up their collective asses. When will they pull out and see the light?

      • thatotherjean

        Too many people’s attitude comes down to “I’m all right, Jack. Screw you all!” Especially in Trump’s America, where the nasty critters have crawled out from under their rocks.

    • bearLvrFL

      They’re either tribal loyalists or oblivious (“Gee, My IRA still looks OK, nothing bad has happened close to my life yet, so…I’ll approve!”).

    • Scott Carpenter

      Does anyone remember back in the good old days, when weekends weren’t part of the news cycle, and nothing major got posted from Friday to Monday? Those were good times.

  • Todd20036

    The pathetic thing is, the only people impressed by Trump are already impressed by Trump.

    As for the rest of us, Trump may as well be shouting to the democrats: DON’T GET COMPLACENT!!

    It’s a public service announcement for those who want a blue tsunami this november

  • Devon Rodriguez
    • Todd20036

      Notice that after the first 6 months, that graph is relatively stable.

    • northern_neighbour

      Exactly, … skewed polls of low quality can give the illusion of passive “consent”.

      There is no “consent” in today’s America, and this reflects the state of affairs more accurately than any self-aggrandizing Twitler Tweet could ever do.

    • JCF

      It’s hard to believe that Drumpf ever had UNDER 50% disapproval!

  • another_steve

    I conducted a poll of friends and relatives and people living within a two-mile radius of my home.

    Donald Trump and my hemorrhoids have the exact same approval ratings.

    • Christian1234567

      Cockroaches have a higher approval rating than Trump when sane people are polled.

  • octobercountry

    The truly horrifying thing is that over 40% of the public actually approves of him. Makes me think the future of this country is doomed….

    • Karl Dubhe

      Not just your nation. 🙁

      The delusional ones are multiplying very fast.

    • Christian1234567

      It’s because he has an R after his name and is giving bigots and corporations everything they want. There are quite a lot of bigots in this country.

      • And a few will hope their portfolios will increase along with corporate greed…and that is their only deciding factor.

      • kareemachan

        And rich bigots carry a lot of weight.

    • JCF

      They’re the dying-out 40%. TOPS.

  • another_steve

    Unbelievable that his rating has ticked upward.

    Why is that?

    Because it’s been learned that he fucked a porn star shortly after the birth of his son?

    “…my approval ratings at around 50…”

    No, you fuquing idiot. That’s your IQ.

  • Tulle Christensen

    Give the old guy a break, he just left off the three letters d i s in front of approval. I mistype all the time

    538 have great graphs comparing Trump’s approval with the previous 12 Presidents that have polling data at the same stage in their respective presidency.
    All bar Clinton and Ford are CONSTANTLY better than Trump. Clinton had a brief dip to Trump levels before recovering to much higher approval. Only Ford has Trumps very low levels and that was due to the Nixon pardon.

  • Tomcat

    Trump is as loved as ebola in a sterile operating room.

      Your “creepy” reminds me of the official name of Nixon’s re-election pushers: Committee to Re-Elect the President. It took about 4 seconds to realize that the acronym said it all: CREEP. Perhaps, since circumstances are similar, that could be used again if it makes it to 2020.

  • David Walker

    AP fact check on one of the fucking moron’s “claims” at his PA hog calling contest:

    TRUMP: “Women! We love you! We love you. Hey, didn’t we surprise them with women during the election? Remember? ‘Women won’t like Donald Trump.’ I said, have I really had that kind of a problem? I don’t think so. But, ‘Women won’t like Donald Trump. It will be a rough night for Donald Trump because the women won’t come out.’ We got 52 percent, right? 52.”
    THE FACTS: Exit polls found he got 41 percent of the votes from women in the election, not 52 percent. The figure he cited — 52 percent — applies only to white women. The surveys of voters found that only 4 percent of black women and 25 percent of Hispanic women voted for him.

    I’ve read that he said something to the effect that “the whole world is watching PA” because of Tuesday’s election. Here’s hoping they get someone worth looking at.

    • Mikey

      what, there are women that aren’t white???
      can they even vote?

      • TexasBoy

        Well, maybe 3/5 of a vote in the Trump universe.

      • JCF

        Rethugs are workin’ it (to make it not so).

      White women in America, WHY? FFS!

      • JCF

        This is why: Hillary got the majority of white women who are college-educated. Ergo…

        • zhera

          But it can’t be that, can it? Are minority women more educated than white women?

          • JCF

            By life? Yes!

            A white woman needs a college education to figure out what women of color already know: that Republicans, serving their donors, are out to SCREW everyone who’s not a wealthy, straight white Christianist male.

    • Chris H.

      LOL at “hog calling contest”!

  • MikeBx2

    Those he’s trying to convince are easy to fool. They also believe he has a very good brain and that he loves Jesus.

  • evanedwards

    Trump’s approval can always be expressed as the square root of negative one.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      And those who approve of him share a characteristic with the square roots of 2, 3 and 5.

    He is SO SO desperate to have friends…

    Only the best government. NYT today:
    “The $1.5 trillion tax cut spawned a host of errors and ambiguities in

      I hope the Dems exact more than a pound of flesh. Hostage-taking comes to mind.

      gee – it was rushed through in the dead of night by only a handful of people trying to maximise their own gain. What could possibly go wrong?

        Even smart professionals who spend years on a given law have unexpected problems. To do it like they did the tax bill was a guarantee of exactly the issues they are seeing now.

  • Lars Littlefield

    Way Off Topic:
    I have a thing for Anthony Verreachia. He lost his husband in a tragic accident a couple of weeks after they finally could get married. Luis thinks Verreachia is too ethnic looking. (Mexicans and Italians rarely compliment one another.) So Luis is always on the lookout for well aged meat to show me. Here’s something interesting if your into mature eye candy. Ron Jack Foley seems promising and at 80-years-old Wang Deshun seems awfully perky. Verreachia is the No. one pick according to this fluff. Still, incredibly handsome.

  • Treant

    Exactly who and where are they polling? I don’t think you could find 1 person in 5 who approves around here.

    Of course, it could be the way I would ask the question, “You don’t actually like that fuckwad, do you? Because if so, your ass is right out of my life.”

  • bearLvrFL

    Noxious pseudo human being says what?

    I don’t think he’s lying. I think he’s being told this so he doesn’t have a meltdown. He’s illiterate and lacks any intellectual curiosity, so this wouldn’t be something he’d go out on his own to verify.

      Bingo. In some poll cross tabs I’m sure he’s doing stupendously well:
      a. white men 70+ with incomes >$900k.
      b. white men 50+ employed in rapidly automating industries.
