Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 11, 2017

President-elect Donald Trump is starting out his political career with a 37 percent approval rating, according to new polling data released on Tuesday. The latest numbers come from a Quinnipiac poll which shows the majority -- 51 percent -- of Americans currently disapprove of the job the billionaire businessman is doing during his transition to the White House. For comparison, President Obama's approval rating was 63.3 percent a week into his first term back in 2009, according to Real Clear Politics.

Trump's favorite book outside of Two Corintians is "Yellow River" by I.P. Daley.

He's up significantly since they started tracking him. He started at 22.7, now he's at 42.8. That includes the latest Quinnipiac poll.

Only Trump could manage to become less popular from Election Day to Inauguration Day.

He's up since the election in aggregated polling. Barely, but still higher than November.

The American people are showering Trump with their disapproval.

But they get what they voted for.

President Obama, you're out. President Trump, urine.

Will not be long and many will look back on the results of this poll as the good old days...

How low will he go? So long as Trump is unable to control his juvenile compulsion to send out tweets, the sub-basement is the limit.

That's all they need to get reelected. Things are going very well.

He's lower than any recorded PEeOTUS at this time. By a signifiant amount, too.

"only 30% approve of his Cabinet choices

Fifty-two percent say Trump does not care about average Americans, and 62% say that he is not level-headed.

In the Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, 64 percent of American voters said they think Trump should "close his personal Twitter account" when he takes office. And 32 percent of voters said he should keep his account.

Eighty percent of Democrats polled said Trump should dump his account.

Sixty-five percent of Independents agreed the president-elect should stop using his personal account."

Someone take his chubby little fingers offa the keys!

A 20 percentage-point lead among women and a 45-point lead among non-white voters lift Democrat Hillary Clinton to a 45 - 40 percent likely voter lead over Republican Donald Trump, with 6 percent for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and 3 percent for Green Party candidate Jill Stein, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Hahahahhahaa

Let me help you with this since you are too dumb to understand how polling works versus polling to determine voting outcomes.

The key issue is this term: Likely Voter.

I don't know why you'd be laughing about a poll that got it so close. She won the vote nationally by almost 3 percent.

37%

LOL ~ Don't waste your time. Trump doesn't give a damn what the public thinks of him. He's going to be "the president" and he can do anything he pleases, without or without your approval. Your usefulness to him was over on November 8. (suckers ~ and the same goes for the House and Senate weasels who are groveling at his feet.)

Then there's Marco Rubio who is putting on his usual dog and pony show for the press. He's go with the herd when the chips are down. Right now, as long as there's a camera in the room, Rubio will be stagecrafting himself for 2020.

Yea right you couldn't get the pols right before the election you expect them to be right after it.

All that counts was the vote not the polls. The people that voted for him dont get counted in polls like this.

How do you figure? What about the methodology do you disagree with? Or are you just making things up because you disagree with the outcome of the opinion (vs predictive) poll?

"From January 5 - 9, Quinnipiac University surveyed 899 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 3.3 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones."

I wonder how much higher HRC's would have been at this point had she been elected.

We were offered two ------ candidates in the general election and now we are surprised that the winner has a low approval rating?

As for the 37% approval rating, it is shameful. And Trump is a media-savvy enough kind of guy to know it is shameful. America does not like nor trust him. He just happened to get more EC votes than the other ------ candidate.
