I don't remember this poll being posted. Odd...some really odd results as well not just that 52% approve of Trump but a MAJORITY of millenials approve as well!

It's still a poll... meh...

But - no more daily Russian collusion talk. Just general sour grapes from the anti-Trump crowd. Maybe that's a factor.

And people are busy working and supporting themselves...

It is actually not odd. Zogby is not a credible poll, even by GOP standards, and the only people who use the results are the ones that purchased the poll.

".....story about animal rights, journalist Michael Pollan reported that 51 percent of Americans believe that "primates are entitled to the same rights as human children." It was a surprising finding, but one that Pollan simply attributed to a "recent Zogby Poll." When Pollan's article came out, you can only imagine the celebration at the Doris Day Animal League, a group dedicated to establishing legal rights for chimpanzees....By hiring the renowned pollster John Zogby, the group had essentially purchased an objective fact, one that entered into the conventional wisdom via the nation's leading Sunday magazine.

...Whomever you blame for this small propaganda coup, it's hardly unique. Media coverage of polling results often neglects to mention the self-interestedness of the sponsor, and John Zogby is a leading enabler...."

Zogby routinely puts out polls that are, well, off compared to other polls on the same subject by quite a bit so nothing really new in there. Which is more accurate is debatable but for a lot people it's just the one that says what they want to hear that matters more than accuracy.

We've talked about the numbers game many times. Zogby gets a C for its historical accuracy & methodology and is considered to lean right. (Even Rasmeussen gets a better score of C+).

But the key, I think --is the trend.. And the trend went up the first week in May across the board I think. I think since then the trend has gone down slightly for the more conservative polls even.

Early days kids....early days.
