Trump’s approval rating remains crappy at 44% by average. Even the polls that slant most in his favor don’t even put him at 50%.

If his presidency were over today, he would be the lowest by average since they started keeping track. By a good amount.

His base sure screams a lot and takes time off of the jobs they don’t have to attend his rallies. But America does not approve.

True but you have to remember he won in 2016 with 45.75 of the vote.

The vote in the House was an absolutely typical voter adjustment that occurs when one party holds the Presidency and both houses of Congress for two years.

Obama polled much higher than Trump and had an even more severe drubbing after his first two years in office.

And these are facts, which is more than you can say for your polls.

2018 midterms: A blue wave or merely an electoral adjustment into a new presidency?
Oh, but Trump told us that the house was safe, since he was so popular. He told us to look at his rallies.

Then comes record turnouts for a midterm to vote against him.

America doesn't approve of Trump. He has the electoral college (affirmative action) in his favor, but on the whole, he is not a well liked president at all.

Midterms arent usually a good indicator of anything. Most presidents lose horribly in midterms and this was no exception especially since the GOP had done so well during Obama. However, Trump remains solidly in that 40-45% range and cant break out of it. The only stumbling block for 2020 will be third party candidates. We dont yet know who they will be (both libertarian and Green party heads retired) so that could play a factor. As we saw in 2016, it doesnt take a whole lot of votes to swing an election.

Wow! Just got word that our June 18th, Tuesday, ANNOUNCEMENT in Orlando, Florida, already has 74,000 requests for a 20,000 seat Arena. With all of the big events that we have done, this ticket looks to be the “hottest” of them all. See you in Florida!

<<And according to a new report from the New York Times, the Trump campaign’s internal polling presents a starkly similar picture.

It’s so bad, in fact, that Mr. Trump reportedly told his aides to lie about the poll results:
After being briefed on a devastating 17-state poll conducted by his campaign pollster, Tony Fabrizio, Mr. Trump told aides to deny that his internal polling showed him trailing Mr. Biden in many of the states he needs to win, even though he is also trailing in public polls from key states like Texas, Michigan and Pennsylvania. And when top-line details of the polling leaked, including numbers showing the president lagging in a cluster of critical Rust Belt states, Mr. Trump instructed aides to say publicly that other data showed him doing well.
Not explicitly mentioned in the report is the clear fact that at least one aide likely disobeyed these orders by leaking the details to the Times.>>

These polls mean very little. The only poll that matters is election day. If the economy is still going strong before the election, look for Trump to win and win big.

It's the economy stupid!

Polls are one of the best examples of fake news.

They are not something that happened, but simply an imperfect survey.

This far out from the next election, polls are entirely meaningless.
