New Poll Suggests Trump Would Now Win Popular Vote

Tyler Durden's picture

Despite historicaly low approval ratings (before his recent warmongery bounce), nearly all of those who supported him in the November election say it was the right thing to do.

All told, the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 42 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s performance as president, while 53 percent disapprove. That compares to an average of 69-19 percent for past presidents at or near 100 days in office – for example, 69-26 percent for Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama.

However, as we noted previously, Trump's "favorability" rating according to Rasmussen has upticked notably in the last two weeks since his sabre-rattling and 'Tomahawk'-ing began.



Moreover, while Democrats find solace in this national poll's results, the fact remains that ABC/WaPo find no evidence of buyer's remorse among Trump supporters.

Among those who report having voted for him in November, 96 percent today say it was the right thing to do; a mere 2 percent regret it.

And if a rerun of the election were held today, the poll indicates even the possibility of a Trump victory in the popular vote among 2016 voters.

Among Americans who say they voted in the 2016 election, 46 percent say they voted for Hillary Clinton and 43 percent for Trump, very close to the 2-point margin in the actual popular vote results. However, while Trump would retain almost all of his support if the election were held again today (96 percent), fewer of Clinton's supporters say they’d stick with her (85 percent), producing a 40-43 percent Clinton-Trump result in this hypothetical re-do among self-reported 2016 voters.

President Trump was quick to notice (what the mainstream media seemed unwilling to admit)...

Dear uneducated and perpetually uncurious Amerikansky voter,

Trump would NOT win popular vote because popular vote is not metric by which POTUS election is win. Trump did not lose popular vote and cannot win by popular vote, any more than New England Patriot football team is win by yardage, by rule of game, it is by point earn by touch down and field goal. "Popular Vote" is subterfuge argument that is only exist in mind of dysregulated and uninformed liberal ignoramus.

Amerikansky COTUS is law by which Republic is form and it is by win vote from 50 state that election is win. Period.

… but what is Boris know?

how much did that poll cost?   Who the hell believes polls/surveys anymore...

A mere 2% of Trump voters express buyer's remorse?

Judging by this place, they mixed things up a little, a mere 2% DON'T express buyer's remorse.

"Poll" two days before election: "Hillary by 12%"

Actually I think he has lost ground with some of the people that voted for him (myself included) because of all the flip flopping on core issues.

I tend to think his "warmongering" uptick in the polls is with the stateists and collectivists (even some lefties) that see him as finally acting "presidential."

Maybe I am missing some 4D chess bullshit but I would probably not vote for him again.

but I would probably not vote for him again.

Bear in mind that the only real alternative you were given was Hillary Rodham Clinton. There cannot really be any buyer's remorse when the only other option was 'pure shit sandwich.'

"But as we have seen with Trump, it doesn’t even matter. Even if Le Pen had won, she probably wouldn’t even have done Frexit, let alone anything else that mattered.

There is a force more powerful than elected politicians that controls the Western world. An evil force. With a hooked-nose.

We need to start forming our own governments, within our countries. That is the only way forward at this point. We don’t have any choice."

Trump’s Latest Black Pills April 23, 2017

This fellow is a good analyst and he is under attack: On the SPLC and Their Lies: The Harassment of Andrew Anglin by Andrew Joyce, Ph.D. (Mr Joyce is a retired British professor)

I don't think there will be a better analysis than this one:
The Wall Continues to be Promised as Government Shutdown Looms

Anglin’s Analysis

I don’t think the wall will ever be built.

At least not under a Trump Presidency.

I think the key statement was Priebus saying that the President would be happy as long as there’s some random “border funding” in the bill (which there already is in all budget bills).

Forcing a shutdown over the wall would certainly energize the base.

And maybe they’ll throw us a bone, as every other promise gets flushed down the toilet.

But I’m not hopeful.

Just Remember

If/When Trump fails to deliver anything to his people, it means that there is only one option left.

All these people are going to come to us.

And then we’ve got ourselves a rodeo.

Trump's election was kind of like an NFL game where the score was 28-27 because the winner scored 14 safeties.  It's legal, and it would be fun taunting the losing team afterwards.

Title: New Poll Suggests Trump Would Now Win Popular Vote

My response: With 28 years of despicable behavior by last four Presidential candidates, i would expect some improvement pf opinion with the America people. As a reminder, popular vote with MAN (or WOMAN) is not what matters, but what really matters is President TRUMP and his team in good standing with the GOD of the BIBLE?

Ephesians 5:10 "Do what is pleasing and acceptable to the Lord."

As President Regan once said: "We should NOT be asking if GOD is on our side, but are we are His side?

If not, then America can expect judgment from GOD.

Pretty simple.

The guy is king Pepe. This stuff drives the Demtards crazy. His masterful trolling is why I'd vote for him again. Keep it up President Pepe.

aardvarkk's picture

Yeah, I am getting kind of beyond policy at this point.  We are fucked, the end.  But Trump is the best troll I have ever seen, and that includes the jackasses inhabiting Usenet in the mid 90s.  I will probably vote for him again just for that, unless a miracle happens and the Dems nominate Tulsi Gabbard.

For some reason, Trump ALWAYS reminds me of the Cat in the Hat:

“Look at me!

Look at me!

Look at me NOW!

It is fun to have fun

But you have to know how.”? Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat (Deluxe Edition)

I wonder why that is?

The judeocorporate media...

to include the NYT, which is still considered a news organization y dumb people.

The same ziojew columnists and reporters and editors who helped gin up Iraq (for Israel) are still there, writing neocon, anti-Russian, anti-Iran, anti-Assad, anti-White lies.

Not slant - deliberate Ziolies.

The only good news is very few people under 30 take them seriously. But too many still do.

Oh and after all the frenzied judeocorporate media coverage of the Russiagate nothing burger (NSA's 'moderate confidence' was a tell)...

why never any coverage of an Israelgate?

because no one would cover it because 3564 jewish orgs would cry and shit their pants that fair coverage as to israel is 'hate'...

mostly because Americans' adoration of Israel outside the Scoffield Hoax vics is dependent on *very* selective and slanted coverage.

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture


You know something though?
I don't feel tardy... or 'far right.'

I've been an antiwar libertarian since I saw Iraq and the fruits of neocon policies up close, but I guess, for the Zionistas and the Regressive Left... we are all 'nazis' now.

Anti-war, pro-civil liberties, anti-violence nazis v warmongering, authoritarian, pro-violence 'liberals' and 'progressives.'

What a world.

Teja's picture

Actually, being the only president on the list with higher disapproval than approval rates after 100 days, I would count that in his favor.

bshirley1968's picture

Hey, Trump!  We would have voted for a chimpanzee over Hillary Clinton.  So keep bragging dumbass, you are too stupid to realize you were just the least skankiest whore left standing in the bar.

Look at the first 100 day poll since Truman.  The author post that chart and then tells everyone that Trump is really doing G G G R R E E A A A T T T! ! ! ! !

This Trump guy attracts morons like flies to shit.  Well, that and bankster Jews. 

bshirley1968's picture

You know what's funnier that this egomaniac in the WH?

The little Trump trolls on ZH that are relegated to down votes because they got nothing to say in defense of the jackass except, "Well, at least he's better than Hillary! "  Take that statement from them and they are dumbfounded and speechless.

They like to brag about how Trump trolls the losers at CNN, but its just as fun watching Trumptards getting trolled for their blind loyalty to a moron.

Trump has been forced into the ultimate act of degradation-

starring in his own presidential reality show.

It's about a celebrity torturing white people

who are stupid enough to work for him.

because the cunt. the only worse democrat contender would have been al sharpton. i bet he loses against bernie.

Chris88's picture

After he lied to all his dumb hick supporters (who couldn't see that coming) now they'd support him again.  Speaks volumes to the kind of lemming it took to get behind this jackass.

aardvarkk's picture

The one calling Trump a jackass and his supporters dumb Hicks apparently thinks Hillary would have been better.  Irony of this strength kind of stings my eyes a little.  Like the ammonia in old piss.

Chris88's picture

The fact that your only argument is "he's not Hillary" shows you must be having buyer's remorse.  

Giant Meteor's picture

That purdy harsh, so let me just say, to lighten the mood, when life hands you a lemming, you just learn to make lemming aide !

chunga's picture

When Trump kept his yap shut just prior to the March 20 hearing on "election tampering" you had to know the gig was up.

"You can't review 650,000 emails in 8 days."

He didn't say a damn thing did he? 

Giant Meteor's picture

Well let us put it this way, a lot of things that were on his radar, pre-election, were, as we know, OFF his radar post elections, and visa versa .. As to the 650,000 emails, that is being erased from our memory banks as we speak, as with many other things ..

Apparently it is already erased from his ...


chunga's picture

I remember it. I remember it well because everything was tee'd up for a swamp draining. Instead, Trump said nothing and Schiff ran right over the top of the red team who looked like a bunch of bitch-slapped pussies.

Comey is still there, laughing, and Nunes recused himself. Sessions is still there too, burrowed deep in the swamp mud.

terrific article on pat buchanan and his spiritual(political) connection to trump. one of the best articles i have ever read on buchanon. i never realized how much he and trump share the same view(ex israel).

Giant Meteor's picture

Interesting reading on Buchanan,

The money shot on Trump, although I would have gone much further ..

"But none of this means he’s suddenly bullish about America’s future. Buchanan says he has “always been a pessimist,” and despite Trump’s conquest, two things continue to color his dark forecast for the nation. First, Buchanan harbors deep concerns over whether Trump, with his off-topic tweeting and pointless fight-picking, has the requisite focus and discipline to execute his nationalist agenda—especially over the opposition of a media-establishment complex bent on his destruction."

"Second, even if Trump delivers on the loftiest of his promises, Buchanan fears it will be too little, too late. Sweeping change was needed 25 years ago, he says, before thousands of factories vanished due to the North American Free Trade Agreement, before millions of illegal immigrants entered the country, before trillions of dollars were squandered on regime change and nation-building."

Too bad the cocksucker lost it. But go on--keep pulling your bullshit "polls" out of your Trumped-out ass to justify his presence in the White House.
