With the media throwing the kitchen sink at President Trump, this must be incredibly frustrating for the fake news gang.
Donald Trump begins his presidency facing unprecedented polling headwinds: Roughly a quarter of voters think Donald Trump is the worst president in the last century. Forty-three percent of voters are ready to vote for a nameless Democrat in 2020, while just over a third say they’ll vote for Trump.
But, in the fourth week of Trump’s presidency, a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that Democrats could be in trouble — and Trump could triumph — if they continues their lurch to the left.
Just an aside, but was Politico polling on 2012 matchups back in February 2009?
Despite the public’s increasing misgivings about Trump’s behavior and tactics in the White House, he still beats Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in a hypothetical matchup, 42 percent to 36 percent — a fairly impressive margin for an less-than-popular president against the prominent senator.
Do they even realize only 44% of Massachusetts voters want Fauxcahontas re-elected? Meanwhile, buried deep in the story, which should probably be the headline:
Trump is, however, maintaining relatively higher approval numbers in the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll than in other public surveys. Forty-nine percent of voters approve of the job he’s doing as president in the new poll, and 45 percent disapprove.
Considering he got 47% of the vote last November, a 49% approval seems like positive news. No wonder they buried it.
