Trump’s Latest Polling

If I’m not mistaken, I saw an anti-Trump conservative wondering hopefully on Twitter the other day how soon Trump would be polling in the 20’s nationally. No doubt that he’s done himself harm, as noted earlier, but as the sharp Josh Kraushaar notes, his polling is about where it was, maybe a little higher:

Finally, Trump’s overall job-approval rating is virtually unchanged in the aftermath of Charlottesville. Quinnipiac’s new survey found it at 39 percent, up 6 points since its last survey earlier in the month. Gallup now pegs his approval at 38 percent, inching upwards from his all-time low of 34 percent just before the Charlottesville protests. The aforementioned PBS/Marist poll also found his job approval at 38 percent. For context, that’s the same percentage who viewed him favorably on Election Day before he won the presidency.

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
