    Trump is still fooling 36% of the electorate.

    at least according to this latest poll:

    Approaching six months in office, Trump’s overall approval rating has dropped to 36 percent from 42 percent in April. His disapproval rating has risen five points to 58 percent. Overall, 48 percent say they “disapprove strongly” of Trump’s performance in office, a level never reached by former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and reached only in the second term of George W. Bush in Post-ABC polling.
    and it took thousands of dead soldiers in an unnecessary and ill advised war to bring Bush 43 down that far.

    " It has been well remarked that Trump shows a contemptuous regard for truth or facts. He is appealing to the constrained who do not want to be hemmed in or constrained by facts either, as they are by so much else in their lives. This is related to the wish to win that Trump so effectively conjured during his campaign (with his repeated emphasis on America winning again, winning huge, etc.)."

    Sad isn't it ?

    You're just saying that because......well:



    But on the bright side: If his approval is going down, does that mean that facts are becoming more important to the electorate?

    That 36% consider themselves religious.
    It speaks volumes that those "religious" folk have no problem supporting an AMORAL man.

    Then the smart plan for the democrats is to run a centrist next time, right?

    I bet they won't even sniff at one. Hardcore progressive coming your way and the majority of America disagrees with their policies...
