Still below 50

Despite comrade GURPS' pathetically desperate attempts to convince himself and the ignorati crowd otherwise, Donald Trump still does not have an aggregate approval number above 50%.

He is the ONLY President going back to Truman who never spent anytime above above a 50% approval rating.

Christ even the latest Rassmusen polling data has Trump under 50%!!
Tell us why we should care, sugar-booger.

Speaking of the "ignorati7 It is obvious that you don't know what the bold word above means. Aggregate approval number would be the additive of all of the poll results into a single value. Maybe you were looking for the word "average" but I guess that is far too complicated for someone of your claimed superior intellect.

Approval rating is a media concoction that means little in terms of the political world. It is a summary number from polls taken around the entire country. In terms of election or re-election chances, it is not a reliable indicator. It is a snapshot in time. George Bush Sr. had an approval rating of over 90% right after the Gulf war. His son had about the same rating after 9/11. One was re-elected, one wasn't. Elections are won based on a hand full of swing states. And drilling down even further, they are won based on the outcome of votes by independents and potential moderate crossover voters. If the presidential election was simply a popular vote contest, then approval rating would carry more weight. Trump won in 2016 because of a thin margin in a few swing states. That margin was decided basically because he won independents in those states. Whether he can repeat that or not depends on who the democratic candidate is, imo.

I don’t pay attention to polls because they are slanted. That was proven when Hillary lost. I hope that there are still enough voting patriots, and the Left doesn’t get to tamper with the votes too much. They (the swamp) are hell bent to change our great Country. Power, and all. God bless the USA. :patriot:
