52% Approval rating


#124

In the real world, 538.com says, his latest approval rating among all adults is 40.1 % among all adults and 43% among likely voters. Not good!


#125

Oops thats not good


#126

The good news is that with Trump math, their 43% actually equals a 375% approval rating.


#127

Curious to see what @Cratic3947 thinks about this. 3 point drop in approval, 3 point increase in disapproval.

Weird. Almost like a bunch of us predicted this. And I suspect the number is going to keep trending back toward disapproval, especially after the emergency declaration followed by a weekend of golf.


#128

Do you know how that compares to other presidents at about the same time?


#129

Gallup has a comparison chart.

At the two year mark:
Obama 48%
Clinton 40%
GWB 63%
GHWB 67%
Reagan 42%
Kennedy 63%
Nixon 51%
Trump 37%


#130

It’s all here.


#131

The 538 chart looks a little more comprehensive. You think that the fact that Obama was more popular than Orange Donniebrook ticks him off just a little?


#132

If he’s literate enough to even understand those graphs, I’m sure he’s just staring at the Reagan one.


#133

What’s the deal with George H. W. Bush’s high rating? I feel like I must be forgetting some world event that pushed it up.


#134

Just different times, man. I don’t think we had reached peaked partisan yet. I don’t think any president could get numbers like that now.


#135

The most recent Fox News Poll has Trump’s approval at 46% with his diapproval at 52%.


#136

Trump is cool.


#137

Fall of the Berlin Wall? End of Cold War?

I am being lazy and not looking, just free-styling.


#138

I guess. It still seems odd that of the comparisons provided (Eisenhower; Kennedy; etc.), George H. W. Bush had the highest rating.


#139

I think those events were earlier.


#140

Then the first Iraq War.


#141

We were in the midst of Desert Storm. If it were 1991(two years in exactly where Trump is now) ground combat in Iraq and Kuwait would start in five days.


#142

Thanks for confirming. I knew some world event had boosted his approval ratings.

GW Bush’s ratings were actually in a decline mode from 9-11 (not that its a bad thing, as his numbers wre almost to 90% immediately following 9-11). Still impressive his numbers were still in the 60’s.


#143

That must be it.
