Trump’s Job Approval Craters Into The 30s As Joe Biden’s Favorability Rating Soars
The survey is the latest in a series of bad polling data that shows Trump’s reelection could be in major trouble.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


A new   Quinnipiac University poll   released on Tuesday has bad news on multiple fronts for Donald Trump.

First, the president’s approval rating has plummetted back into the 30s as only 38 percent of the country approve of the job he’s doing, while 57 percent disapprove.

Earlier in the month, the same survey showed Trump’s approval rating clocking in at a still-dismal 41 percent. Overall,   according to RealClearPolitics , the average share of Americans who support the president’s job performance stands at a paltry 42.7 percent.

The second piece of bad news from the Quinnipiac University survey relates to the 2020 presidential election, which is already in full swing.

According to the poll, the potential Democratic opponent Trump fears most – former vice president Joe Biden – has a +10 favorable rating, making Biden the only candidate in either party with a positive score.

Trump’s favorability rating, on the other hand, is worse than Biden’s by double digits with just 38 percent of respondents saying they hold a favorable opinion of the incumbent president.

The survey is the latest in a   series of bad polling data   that shows Trump’s reelection could be in major trouble.

Any candidate with a net-positive favorable rating will likely beat Trump


While political pundits will spend the next year and a half picking apart polls and diving into the trend of the moment, it is likely that any Democratic candidate with a positive favorability rating will defeat Trump.

As of right now, that candidate appears to be Joe Biden, who is seen as likable by a near-majority of the American people – far better than any of the other hopefuls seeking the Democratic nomination.

Whether it was fair or not in 2016 (hint: it wasn’t), a majority of the country did not view Hillary Clinton favorably. It’s one reason Trump was able to eke out an Electoral College victory.

If Trump ends up facing Joe Biden in 2020, he won’t have that same good fortune of running against an opponent with similarly negative favorability ratings. That stat alone – combined with historically low approval ratings – could be enough to send him packing next year.

The GOP keeps digging itself deeper and deeper in the hole while following trump.

Alabama Abortion, tax breaks for the 1% , Iraq, longest government in history, trump's taking children from families, childhood deaths, over 10K lies to this point, sabotage of Affordable Care Act, trump's demonization of immigrants, Trump's racism and bigotry, and more to come

Joe Biden will probably end up as the Democratic candidate for President. Whether he will win or not is yet to be seen.

The POINT is that polls can and are wrong at times. I used the polls regarding Hillary as a reference point to when polls are wrong. Surely my talk of Hillary and the polls conducted in 2016 are just as on topic as your  comment about "Alabama Abortion, tax breaks for the 1% , Iraq, longest government in history, trump's taking children from families, childhood deaths, over 10K lies to this point, sabotage of Affordable Care Act, trump's demonization of immigrants, Trump's racism and bigotry, and more to come".

I would appreciate it if you would define exactly what the topic is.

On this seed, people are talking about abortion, taxes, Iraq, immigration, deaths, lies, sabotage, racism, bigotry, Biden, Clinton emails, Barr, pro-abortion, minors forced to give birth, Breitbart, InfoWars, Fox, voters turning on Trump, market crash of 2008, economic trends, farmers, bailouts, drug testing, and welfare.

Please tell me exactly what the topic is.

Those do seem to be the reasons Trumps approval rating is tanking, and it's never been very high to begin with.

The topic appears to be "Trump Approval Craters" and anyone discussing the many obvious reasons for this would seem to be on topic.

I need to hear from the seeder, who flagged one of my comments about a poll as off topic.

Since polling was part of the article, stupid me figured a comment about polling would be on topic.

Sadly, I was incorrect.

If you have any long term faith in America, then you sort of have to assume that a sizable majority of Americans will say "enough is enough" on election day 2020 and send Trump back under the rock he crawled out of 4 years ago.

If you think the Democrats will win with an agenda of......

Open borders with no funding for physical barriers or processing facilities or healthcare for migrants, or

abortion up to date of delivery, and maybe beyond in some cases. or

special rights for people with gender issues and other identity groups, or

having done nothing since Trump got elected except trying to have him removed from office, while having offered little to none meaningful legislation for the good of American citizens. And on and on.

Then you have to consider the coming calamity of the Democrats when Barr's investigations start to look very, very closely at the actions of the previous administration as to how and why it started a fraudulent and illegal investigation into a duly elected president's imagined and supposed activities.

Only a dumb cluck would count their chickens this early in the race, when so much more is going to be revealed about the dismal democrats before long.

The HRC criminality was not bullshit. But you already knew that.

Considering who she was, there was no way Comey would recommend prosecution, even though he laid out a good case against her. And Lynch would have not prosecuted her anyway, since she was all lined up to be the president.

However, I don't think the Dems will escape a lot of bad press and investigation because of the number of people involved, the seriousness of the allegations, and the abundance of evidence.

You crack me up.  Trump could, as he stated, shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and you'd refuse to believe that he was guilty.  Even if you saw it with your own eyes.  But you will never believe that any Democrat isn't guilty of everything. 

Ultra-partisanship kills brain cells.

It's the number of people involved that makes this bullshit. According to some of conservative conspiracy nutjobs, the whole DoJ except Barr is out to get Trump and friends. It's more likely Barr can't find anything but political spin and the Administration looks as stupid as it always does.

If you think the Democrats will win with an agenda of......

"Open borders with no funding for physical barriers or processing facilities or healthcare for migrants, or"

Well that's one we don't have to worry about, because it's complete and total bullshit. Unless you're for a contiguous 2500 mile southern wall and a complete northern border wall you're technically for "open borders" so it's a rhetorical nonsense label. And Democrats did offer up to $2 billion for additional health care, judges and processing facilities, and ever the repair and replacement of existing physical barriers in high traffic areas, you know, where they're actually needed. They merely refused to fund more "wall".

"abortion up to date of delivery, and maybe beyond in some cases. or"

More pure unadulterated rhetorical bullshit. Just because Democrats care about the life of woman and allow exceptions for the less than 1% of late term abortions does not mean they want to allow any "abortion up to date of delivery". You find a case where it was totally elective and not to save the life of the mother or a case or rape or incest or a baby born brain dead and then you might have an argument, but even then it would have to be happening a lot if you're going to try and use it as a weapon against the 99% of abortions that occur long before viability.

"special rights for people with gender issues and other identity groups, or"

Please do list the "special rights" any of those groups you describe are supposedly demanding.

Is it a "special right" to allow to consenting adults to get married?

Is it a "special right" to use a public restroom?

Is it a "special right" to serve in the military?

Is it a "special right" to ask to be served at public establishments the same as any other American?

Well then list the "special rights" you're speaking of instead of just commenting on my examples.

What "special rights" are transgender Americans demanding? If they ask you to call them by a different gender name, how is that an "extra" right, we all have preferred names we ask to be called, not every Robert likes to be called Bob or Bobby. And if they ask to use a restroom they feel matches their gender identity, how is that an "extra right"? I use the men's restroom because that matches my gender identity. Is it the "compete in sports" thing? That's not really an extra right, though personally I think if they don't allow girls to compete who have been doping with male hormones, if a transgender athlete has those same levels of high testosterone they should not be allowed to compete even if it is naturally occurring. If they are taking female estrogen shots and don't have a high level of testosterone then I see no reason why they shouldn't be allowed to compete and I wouldn't see that as a "special right".

What is really amazing is the daily spiel feeding the 'now numb populace' that 'the economy' is the best the World has ever witnessed.

This too.  After the market crash of 2008 the new administration guided a steady upward economic trend.  The right wing screamed that the numbers were fake and the administration lied.

Now, with the Trump, the numbers are absolutely true------------even as the farmers are being bailed out--again.  This also.  Will the farmers pay back the bailout money like the auto manufacturers did?  Will the farmers also be drug tested before receiving federal funds?  More importantly, will the farmers stay with the GOP after being relegated into 'just another welfare recipient?'

The importance of this cannot be overstated.

Biden would have easily beaten Trump in 2016.  His campaign slogan could simply have been "Nothing too Radical...Stay the Course", and he would have walked to victory.

Political hotheads never seem to be able to understand that elections are decided by who wins the center.   Centrists have never liked Trump.  They just dislike him less than Hillary.

A Bernie or Harris or Booker or *insert your radical here* nomination will re-elect Trump.   A Biden nomination would be a very smart move for Democrats.

The left desperately clings to the false belief that voters will turn against Trump in 2020

"The ABC News–Washington Post poll released Monday found that 55 percent of respondents said they will not vote for Trump next year, with only 39 percent approving of his work since taking office."

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/441103-poll-55-say-they-wouldnt-vote-for-trump-in-2020

I know this might be a tough one for some, but I guess we need to start with the basics. Which number is greater? 55 or 39? And if you got that one right, which number would represent a majority of 100?

So facts show a large margin majority do not support this inept President. None need to "turn against" him, the vast majority of Americans already disapprove of him and the job he's done since taking office.

"Trump will carry anywhere from 34-47 states"

Do you really think he can carry so much with those bone spurs? He's going to carry the deep red States where many voters have no shame. Beyond that, he's going to get walloped, smashed, slammed, broken like the poorly made knock off he is.
