Kavenaugh effect: Trump approval up to 51%

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

The "approval index" (strongly approve vs. strongly disapprove) is at -1, which is the best it's been since March of 2017 or so. This is a tidal wave.

'Rats will actually lose seats in the Senate, and might not take the House.

@Tom C: say what you want, but 538 is still the best poll analysis there is (and 2-1 odds are always in play, ask anyone who has bet on an NFL game this season).

When one considers that the mainstream media has savagely attacked Trump since he was elected one must accept that the mainstream media has lost a lot of its ability to sway public opinion. Trump's treatment by the MSM is historic yet after all the negative news and smarmy elitist condemnations he's still polling higher than the great and powerful Obama was at the same time. The smarmy elitists and mainstream media were fully enraptured by Obama yet polling numbers for Obama and Trump at this point were similar. Maybe, just like labor unions and typewriters, the mainstream media has lost its relevancy.

Depends on how the bookie works; if they sit on the bet, they sure run that risk.

Trump’s approvals are also at

Trump’s approvals are also at a record high in Saudi Arabia.

Women pissed and vocal that an assault is ignored? An angry mob flaunting the rule of law! People should go to prison for libel!

Saudis who dismember a reporter in a Turkish consulate? Let’s not overreact. They buy a lot of weapons from us. Plus, the guy was only an American resident. He wasn’t a citizen.

Conservative principles on display...

You meant "flouting" the rule of law, not "flaunting."

Incidentally, how would you describe the principles you display?

Wonder how some people would feel if accusations against them were automatically judged true.

Oh, yeah. That can't happen... your friends in the press will ignore those for you.

Eddie rarely stands in the negatives in the thumb count. This time he's at -8.

He uses the typical progressive adult approach of name calling and avoiding the points on the table as voiced by Collins ("Susie creamcheese.")

With 3 daughters, Beem wouldn't have the gonads to take an objective middle of the road position re "Blackout Brett," or he'd have the tiny little marbles handed to him on a platter by his wife and offspring.

I'd sure like to know how he got the FBI investigation report so quickly.

Which president did I endorse? Thanks.

P.S. I don't like Putin's regime either, but that's not much of a "principle." How would you describe your principles?

The latter is called "flight testing" in polite circles.

Just like throwing them overboard is known as "float checking."

Wasn't there a Nobel Prize winner who said "Elections have consequences"? Sounds like sage advice from a smart person! :)

Heh. I suspect that the media's bashing of Trump actually works in Trump's favor.

This is true. It allows him to maintain this underdog/conspiracy narrative - which is why impeachment would be a complete disaster for the Dems. The dude would become an instant martyr.

Best way to bring down Trump is to emphasize the things that distinguish him from the traditional GOP - deficit spending, protectionism, ethanol subsidies.

I wonder, and I surely don't know, whether "traditional GOP issues" are on the table this year, or next.

I'm traditional GOP, but as I see it, deficits, protectionism, and ethanol aren't drawing blood in the cockpit. The struggle is to decide whether the pro-government faction claws its way back to power to resume its stranglehold on American exceptionalism and free enterprise.

"Trump" is both figurehead and distraction in this contest.

I don't believe Trump maintains an 'underdog/conspiracy narrative'. Fake news on top of a 90% negative Trump reporting track record lays ownership of that narrative at the feet of the media. Trump is strong and having the time of his life.

Otherwise, E-mike is right. Either the swamp creatures crawl back or they don't. R +2 in the Senate, +5 (at least) in the House. Schumer (Pelosi is irrelevant), the Never Trump right and the media are vanquished.
