Winning bigly, we are going to win so much we are going to get tired of winning. Looks like we are just getting tired of Donald Trump.

34% still approve, to the everlasting shame of the country.

God's teeth...

Like in Maine, with the craziest governor in US history, it won't go down any deeper than the low 30's that's where the nazis live.

Not low enough, pulled from a handful of google searches that came up with more or less the same numbers:

According to official sources, however, the 131,689,908 voters who actually cast ballots in the 2016 election represent roughly 55% of all registered, and therefore eligible, voters in the United States. If we do the math, we find that 25.7% of all eligible voters voted for Mr. Trump and 26.51% of all eligible voters voted for Mrs. Clinton.

With DT in the White House and McConnell/Ryan leading Congress, no one is winning. America is losing. The media is spot on.

Congress as a whole has a very low approval rating but individual Senators are mostly "above water" (or at least they were in July when this poll was taken) https://morningconsult.com/july-2017-senator-rankings/. Which is congruent with my observation of politics over the years, most people seem to feel "their guy" is okay, it is the other bums that need to be booted out. My hunch is that if you asked Fox News viewers about the media they would give Fox a big thumbs up and trash everybody else.

Trump's approval curve since his inauguration can be approximated very closely as a straight line trending downward at about 1% per month, starting at about 44%, now down to 36% or thereabouts. His disapproval since the middle of February is also close to a straight line going up at about 1% per month. 50% up to about 57%. I expect the approval number will bottom out at some point no matter what he does, since there are a certain number of people who really wouldn't mind if he shot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue - I'd bet around 25% or a little less. There's a bunch of data here at fivethirtyeight.com (https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/?ex_cid=rrpromo), including comparisons to previous presidents

34 is holding firm but DISAPPROVAL bumped up a point

These numbers show why he wants to start a war so badly. Let's hope Mueller gets him first.
