    Sauce for the goose....

    The WashPo/ABC poll can be compared with itself over a long time period. I think the fact that neither Clinton nor Obama ever reached this level is telling. Even the massively unpopular GWB didn't get this far down until well into his second term.

    The bigger overall question is this one: Usually a president is never more popular than in his first few months in office. The trend is generally downward from there, for obvious reasons. Where does Trump have to go?

    Here's another big question (I think): GWB's numbers were going down pretty fast in the months after his inauguration (though not as far as Trump's). What saved them? An even on September 11 of his first year. After that his approvals soared for months or years, going down only as the foolishness of his adventure in Iraq became apparent--long enough into the future that he could get re-elected on the strength (among other things) of Americans' reluctance to change horses in the middle of a battle.

    Question: Will Trump manufacture himself an armed international conflict for the same purpose?
    Yep, to all the above. Bottom line, he got NO honeymoon period. I think it is safe to assume they got blindsided by all of it. But then that was the darkest inaugural address in US history. Followed by a screaming session the next day by Spicey, followed by fake claims all over the place, followed by pictures like this from all over the world also from the next day...

    Thanks from Babba

    What hits straight home and really bites and smashes hard is the realization by Americans that Trump and Republicans are the ones taking away more than they are putting into services they now have and that they truly need for their survival. That is what is felt the hardest of all by the voters in the U.S.

    Yep. The start of his term was a mini-nightmare. They've been picking themselves up and dusting themselves off over and over again the last six months.

    Yes. And Trump's numbers are startling low--historically low--and lower now than ever before. That's news.
    Yes and yes!!

    The poll also says that only 37% think the Democratic Party "stands for something".

    And that 52% say that the Democratic Party is "just against Trump".

    The OP did not highlight that information for some reason.

    Congrats to the Dems, for those outstanding numbers!
