Trump Job Approval Highest Since First 100 Days; Majority Of Men Support The President

Update: Trump has apparently taken notice, correctly pointing out that his approval rating, according to Rasmussen, is higher than Obama's was at this point in his presidency.

* * *

Even Bloomberg and the Washington Post are being forced to admit that President Donald Trump's approval rating is on the rise.

Both media organizations, which had seized on every opportunity to tout the president's approval rating when it was mired in the mid-to-low 30s, are now being forced to tout a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll showing Trump with an approval rating above 40% - his highest since his first 100 days in office.

Poll

Furthermore, among men, Trump's approval rating has risen to 49%, while 47% of men disapprove. Meanwhile, 32% of women approve of the president's job performance. Meaning that, for the first time, half of US men support the president.

 

 

Nearly every credible poll is now showing the president's job approval at his highest since taking office. On Friday, Rasmussen Reports published a poll showing 50% of likely US voters approve of Trump's job performance - while 49% disapprove. Of those 34% strongly approve of the president's jon performance, while 40% strongly disapprove.

Last week, CNN was also forced to report that Trump's approval rating has rebounded to its highest level since the 100-day mark, with 42% of likely voters approving of the way Trump is handling the presidency.

The president's strongest approval rating was for his handling of the economy, of which 48% approve and 45% disapprove. This is clearly a sign that the Republican's tax cut plan has been welcomed by most Americans, who are beginning to see more money left in their paychecks.

Finally, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released last week shows Trump's approval rating just four points below a peak reached last month - down from 43% to 39%.

However, the president's decision to attack Syria will likely dent his support among some of his most fervent backers, who had applauded Trump's "America First" stance, and his promises to bring US troops home from abroad.

Enlist troll bot auto downvote times ten in 3..2..1...

 

edit: funny that earlier I was in ABC and noticed they had comments enabled for a Comey article. First five or six were anti-Trump with a couple of greens and an attempted sarcastic comment(you Democrat sycophants gotta work on your material) and one guy through a fuck Comey proTrump comment and it had like thirteen up votes. 

 

I’ve noticed that ZH has had an upswing Soros ball chuggers here. I think the authoritarian progressive troll comment army has really been targeted to the right wing sites like ZH.

 

Maybe I’m wrong. Anyway, Bes, Deep Snorkler, Bababuoy (added Pandelis too ya cunt) and the other nevertrumper cunts can eat my taint.

Lincoln was fighting labor arbitrage, and at least made an effort to stop thieving international bankers. These scum are in bed with them, and using our military to protect the bankers' dollar racket. Some have said the plan is to to run oil/gas from The Leviathon Field near Israel, through Syria, Turkey, and on to Europe, but, they could run a pipe across The Mediterranean to Turkey if that were the only objective.

It isn't a Clinton vs Trump poll.   It is an "Is he doing a good job?" poll.   And the results or the people of America who responded... well one of them is really fucked up.  

 

He is very likely the worst president for the majority of the people that they've ever had in America.   Seems pretty darn good for the 1% elites though.   Those people don't care one bit about pensions, student loans, car loans, credit card debt or even national debt.   They've already got their money and money can be moved anywhere fast these days.  Their families are set for generations.   The other 99% are royally screwed.   They just don't know it yet.   The fault lies with BOTH Obama and Trump.  Hell it is a problem with the whole corrupt political system.

Trump was supposed to be the non neoliberal character in this play, so he's the one who has to take the dive. Remember Trump's pitifully weak tariffs we were all supposed to equate to the Smoot Hawley tariffs they want us to think caused The Depression? The timing of these rate hikes were purposeful, and calculated to scapegoat any economically nationalist tendencies, no matter how feeble. Everyone has known that easy money has kept the stock market afloat since the last crash. We've also known what would happen if that money begins to dry up. Haven't you?

How the fuck can you even say that you pugnacious little twat?

Worst president for the "majority" of people?

Who? Single white women, welfare dependent baby mamas and SJWs?

That's the "majority" of American voters.

Trump hasn't even turn the corner on his first year and dullards like you are exclaiming "worst president ever"

Did you not just live through 8 years of Obongo, 8 years of Dubya, 8 years of Cunton and 4 years of  Granddaddy CIA

Just STFU.

10 to 1 says you're a millenitard. Didn't you see the fine print millenitard? You're not even allowed on ZH comment threads

You're obviously not using any objective standard in your lists "reasoning"

Trump is the greatest president at least since Reagan JUST BECAUSE he beat that fucking child eating hillbilly witch. Period.

Keep your stupid yogurt gargler shut before Obongos cum drips out

@DemandSider

"because Clinton still seems to be the neoliberal choice"

 

you are missing the point.  the survey is not about Trump versus Clinton.  It is about Trump's performance so far.  Talking about Clinton is diverting the issue ... i don't see how his performance so far has anything to do with Clinton. 

We got enough of that "lock her up" talk ... it is time to deliver on his promises.

The survey is about him keeping his promises.

Trump talked trade more than anything else, so, honestly, I don't understand why a lot of red staters from farming states voted for the guy. I voted for an immature, capricious, egomaniac, who, hopefully, from my standpoint, had just enough power to throw up some tariffs that would stick on some consumer goods. I also knew that The PRC would, obviously, react by blocking ag exports from the U.S. I'm an adherent of The American School of economics, where smart countries NEVER export commodities and import finished goods, so this issue was central to me.

 

I don't understand how Trump can satisfy both constituencies, that is, Lincoln Republicans like me, and farmers, and I was very surprised he won.

GMAFB are you serious?

If Trump had just ended the TPP and coasted I'd still think he's the best POTUS since Reagan. And he is not "changing his mind" you pusillanimous cunt. Learn to fucking read. 

The fact that he is building the wall and millions of turds aren't floating across the Rio Grande is also a major win. And watch as he makes Mexico pay for it. Either through remittances, renegotiated trade deals or some other way. 

You say job creation BS then worst economy ever. WTF are you a Democrat?
Job creation is way up, even by the rigged standards of US unemployment reporting - check Shadow Stats
Hundreds of companies are, in fact, relocating back to the US. Yes the fuck they are.

You'll believe it when we get out of Syria? You may believe it but you won't come back here and correct the rest of your bullshit list of bullshit non-arguments against Trump.

And who gives a fuck about the joozean embassy. Nobody, that's who. So why the fuck is it even on your list as if that's something he did or did not accomplish. The fact is he said he was going to do it and he did it. I swear to God if we have to deal with every dumbfuck like you who thinks being the stupid kind of sarcastic and attacking Trump is "cool" instead of having clear-headed people who know what the fuck they're talking about post on ZH comments then I am done with ZH. I've been coming here since long before this newest crop of fucktards, nearly a decade and I've noticed a lowering of standards in the comments, which use to be razor sharp and full of useful info.

Not anymore.

And who are the 31 mongoloids who upvoted your dumbass list?
Nearly half are leftard bots we all can see that now, but who are the other 10 or 15?

I'd like to flame each and every one of them and I have the day off to do it.

Fuck outta here

The actual percent in a poll an be wrong, and often is.  That's why a proper poll will always list a margin of error, because it's just luck if you poll perfectly reflects reality at any given point.

However, when polls show a movement in the numbers, especially when that movement is consistent and exceeds the former margin of error, it is almost certainly correct.

Thus, if you want to believe Trump's approval has been hovering around 25%, you are welcome to believe that, but know also that it is now headed toward 30%. 

As more Americans get more money in their paycheck and more Americans are getting paychecks, people are starting to trust the president more than the trust the media and Democrats, at least on the economy, which is really what wins or loses elections.

Polls like the MSM "news" are all rigged. Sadly, we live in a rigged and fake universe. Truth has been banished from the western world. Welcome to a modern version of serfdom with 24/7 surveillance run by thieves, gangsters and criminals. Bread and circuses for the indoctrinated and drugged masses.

Just remember that the more downvotes you get on ZH, you have probably hit the nail on the head. Down votes on ZH is most likely an affirmation of the veracity of your comment. These people on ZH love historical revisionism and blame everything on less than 2/10,000ths of one percent of the world's population -- the Jews. 
Most poster on ZH are paid idiots who love Iran, a place where dissent, including such horrible activities as dancing or not wearing a hijab (if you are a woman) is punishable by torture and jail and death.

I would bet that the majority of those that changed their mind have the patience of a 5 year old. I am sure they expected Trump to walk into the oval office, sign a bunch of executive orders and presto, 6 months later all his promises would be fulfilled. Sorry to disappoint you all, but Trump is not a dictator and Washington doesn’t work that way.
