actually this was a pretty quick bump in the RCP average after a couple months of hovering around 42%.

i agree with others that this is most likely a response to n. korea.

will have to see if he can maintain it.

But honestly, look we have NOT imploded. As much as I don't care for Trump and I'm not impressed with his performance it isn't as bad as I thought.

I can't ever accept Trump because I can't stand his moral character. I may be in a small minority but I think integrity, dignity, morality matter for our President (I know I would not have voted for Clinton -- I thought he was a creep too). But many Americans are becoming comfortably numb to his character, the chaos....etc.
I think on a regular poll, 2% definitely isn't significant, however I think the intent of averaging all of the polls is to help smooth out and lower the impact of any margin of error.

I hope it is North Korea, because that situation has the potential to get A LOT better when Trump and Kim meet (or negotiations that take place before that).

No, I think N. Korea and the Economy would normally give a regular POTUS a big bump, like 15%+ but all of those other things knocked him down a bunch.

I've noticed Obama never looked as enthusiastic as Trump.
Trump is personally attached to the issues he speaks of, very passionate.

I didn't say I don't want it to happen, I'm just being realistic.

Yeah I was pretty convinced that ANY POTUS would end up eventually striking or going to war with NK, I'm quite honestly shocked that things have de-escalated, for now.

That's what Obama thought too- "North Korea will be your most urgent problem Donald".

He will probably be the most talked about but that will be because he will be at the bottom of the list!

He will not have another term.

But also, don't forget:

And, the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because, the Cold War's been over for 20 years

Yes Obama loves the one-liners.
I've noticed even his tone of voice sounds like a stand-up comedian
