that's false. gw bush, clinton, ghw bush, reagan, carter, nixon, kennedy and eisenhower all had points in their presidencies where their approval was higher than it was the day they took office.


trump currently has an RCP approval of 44.6% . it is one of the highest points he's been at but still close to the 43.7% that he's been hovering around for the past 9months.

and the sad part is that they have all been over 50% except for Trump. Well, he is #1 at not reaching 50% yet.

Compared to Trump's previous approval ratings, any poll that puts him at more than 50% after polling an even mix of 1000 or more registered voters should be cause for the Republicans to celebrate.

However, it is still six months to the NH primary and the Iowa caucus. It is certainly too early to count on anything!

As Hillary learned to her great disappointment, whoever thinks "their" party is going to definitely win should not bet on it.

44% overall rating for DT. about the same as Obama's approval in July of third year of presidency


thanks to a good economy, no war, no major terrorist attack, "the squad", and the mueller-report-witch-hunt

Another thread title that's a lie. I really think those should be changed.

POTUS Trump does pretty well with the economy. Obama did not do as well, but even Stuttering Barry could not kill American exceptionalism.
Clinton was the culprit who sabotaged the economy when he promoted the idea - and law - that everyone should qualify for a mortgage.
The worst? Nixon, who instituted wage and price controls. Truly, a stupid idea!

Just wanted to point out that even though Clinton's approval may have been above 50%, he never got 50% of the vote.
The poll that counts is the poll of likely voters. Obama won because the body of likely voters changed. Blocks of people voted who had never voted before. They have since gone back to sleep.

I still don't approve of Trump. And I haven't been given a reason to approve of him.
