    Approve: 16%.

    Wish he would be more cautious: 32%.

    That's the problem with polls. No matter who makes the poll the questions don't allow for grey, just black and white. I would bet you that the 32% approve of president Trump, they just wish he would be a bit more cautious. The poll can make it look like only 16% actually do approve of him.The other telling thing is the 50% who disapprove of him. I would bet that there is no grey with that group either. Just black and white. They just hate him and it wouldn't really matter what he does, they will still hate him.

    I follow him for entertainment purposes... if I want news about the President or White House, that's what the media is for because Trump and his tweets are $#@!ing useless beyond entertainment.

    It is cringe-worthy and I feel embarrassed with how the world is perceiving him. When he Tweets with no thought to the consequences, he makes himself look very foolish most of the time. He needs someone who specializes in social media to take over his account for the next 4 years.

    I don't think that this poll is meant to be about his overall approval; there are things that Trump has said and done which aren't supported, even by his supporters. His Tweets seem to be one of them. I wouldn't consider it an indication of his actual approval rating. I didn't support how Obama used drones, but for the first couple years I still probably would have polled as approving or indifferent.

    I understand. There are many people who have to be told what to think.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of states to propose amendments.

    The converse is also true: he is the President; treat him like it.

    Most of these tweets which so many find objectionable are instigated by actions from the left that I find objectionable. I am, therefore, far more forgiving to Trump's reaction than I am the MSM/etc instigators.
