    Exclamation America Really Dislikes Trump and Republicans in Congress

    https://poll.qu.edu/national/release...ReleaseID=2500

    American voters disapprove 58 - 35 percent of the job President Donald Trump is doing, near his lowest score, a 61 - 33 percent disapproval August 2, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

    Today's approval rating compares to a 56 - 38 percent disapproval in an October 11 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

    Independent voters, a key voting bloc, disapprove of President Trump 63 - 31 percent. Democrats disapprove 91 - 5 percent. Republicans approve 80 - 11 percent.

    In a new low for this measure, only 40 percent of American voters say Trump is fit to serve as president, while 57 percent say he is not fit.

    American voters disapprove 79 - 15 percent, including 60 - 32 percent among Republicans, of the way Republicans in Congress are doing their job. Disapproval is overwhelming among every party, gender, education, age and racial group listed.

    Voters disapprove 63 - 29 percent of the job Democrats in Congress are doing.

    American voters say 51 - 38 percent that they would like to see Democrats win control of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018.

    Voters also say 52 - 39 percent that they would like to see Democrats win control of the U.S. Senate in 2018.

    and...

    American voter opinions of most Trump qualities remain negative:
    • 58 - 37 percent that he is not honest;
    • 59 - 38 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
    • 59 - 39 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
    • 65 - 30 percent that he is not level headed;
    • 58 - 39 percent that he is a strong person;
    • 55 - 41 percent that he is intelligent;
    • 62 - 34 percent that he does not share their values.

    They can't. Common actually used the poll to say one thing hidden waaaay down in the poll:

    American voters disapprove 58 - 38 percent of the way the media covers Trump, but trust the media more than Trump 54 - 34 percent to tell the truth about important issues.


    But failed to post the rest...

    Voters say 53 - 42 percent that the media focuses too much on negative stories about Trump, but do not believe 57 - 39 percent that the media makes up negative stories about him.

    lol you need to go check out the thread where the democrat parties favorability is the lowest in 40 yrs

    Trump will be re elected but he doesnt need to be after these 4 yrs of his liberal destruction and his judicial appointments he will keep the lunacy at bay for 40 more years.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    And we thought Bush Derangement Syndrome was bad. This hatred of President Donald Trump by those who are incapable of success makes BDS look like absolute adulation.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    I didn't see how they sampled the survey, may have missed it and it does matter. Also, a number of questions are ambiguous at best, such as the first question. I don't like the way Trump is "handling" his job, but I don't have any major problem with what he's actually done as President.

    But more importantly I'd really like to see their sampling methodology.

    BTW, Quinnipiac is known for their over sampling Dems and under sampling Repubs.

    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    I cannot stop the ignorant from selling their souls for a bowl of pottage but I can say that I like the job President Donald Trump is currently doing. Other than brain dead letter writers to the ultra liberal news papers owned by USA Today I have not spoken to anyone who thinks President Donald Trump is not good for America. The mentally and morally unfit don't like him of course but that is to be understood.

    Oh brother! To say, "America hates Trump" implies the entire US population hates him....that simply isn't true.

    Are you lefties hoping, if you come up with enough hate articles on Trump, he'll go away? I understand, it makes you feel better thinking your hatred will have an impact......it doesn't.

    It makes me smile, because, it means, he's really gotten to you and, you're working yourselves into some demented frenzy, which is amusing to watch.
