On the face of it, the new Quinnipiac poll is terrible news for the Russian Usurper and to make it worse, it came BEFORE he fired this THIRD person who was investigating his corrupt ties to Russia:
American voters, who gave President Donald Trump a slight approval bump after the missile strike in Syria, today give him a near-record negative 36 – 58 percent job approval rating, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Critical are big losses among white voters with no college degree, white men and independent voters.
Today’s job approval rating compares to a negative 40 – 56 percent approval rating in an April 19 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University and a negative 35 – 57 percent score April 4, his lowest approval rating since he became president.
The president is losing support among independent voters and groups which are important parts of his base. Approval ratings are:
Negative 29 – 63 percent among independent voters, down from a negative 38 – 56 percent April 19;
A split among white voters with no college degree, as 47 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove, compared to a 57 – 38 percent approval April 19;
White men go from a 53 – 41 percent approval April 19 to a split today with 48 percent approving and 46 percent disapproving.
American voters’ opinions of several of Trump’s personal qualities are down:
61 – 33 percent that he is not honest, compared to 58 – 37 percent April 19;
56 – 41 percent that he does not have good leadership skills, little change;
59 – 38 percent that he does not care about average Americans, compared to 57 – 42 percent April 19;
66 – 29 percent that he is not level-headed, compared to 63 – 33 percent last month;
62 – 35 percent that he is a strong person, little change;
56 – 41 percent that he is intelligent, compared to 58 – 38 percent;
64 – 32 percent that he does not share their values, compared to 61 – 35 percent.
“There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
If you look at the poll (which please do), and just browse the Republican columns, you will see:
- Do you approve or disapprove of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as President? — 82% favorability rating from Republican voters
- Do you approve or disapprove of the way Donald Trump is handling his job as President? COMBINED WITH: (If approve/disapprove q1) Do you strongly or somewhat approve/disapprove? — 63%
The Republicans control all the levers of government, and as long as their voters remain so firmly in Team Trump, he’s going to be in office. They will not pursue a special prosecutor, and they certainly will not pursue impeachment, and it doesn’t matter how noise much the Dims make asking/demanding/begging.
Those numbers are bulletproof, and if The New Confederacy and Y’all Qaeda factions of Wingnuttia don’t goose-step to Trump, you can bet they will be primaried. (Is too a verb!) It would be madness for the GOP to do anything punative. Trump IS the party and the party is Trump.
As the Russian Usurper hisself said during the campaign, he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and not suffer any consequences from his supporters.
And the same goes for the rest of them, as long as they shoot a liberal.
