45% job approval rating is good for Pres Trump, historically.

Rasmussen puts his rating at 46% approve, 52% disapprove.

Damned that site has a lot of pop-ups.

Harris did impress during the debate, she definitely seems like a serious person and emotionally aware. Not over the top or snarky.

She had two excellent moments - the food fight comment and bussing. Both hit her opponents smartly. I believe she could be a potent president.

I really like Warren and am in love with Sanders. He's still my man have a lifetime dedicated to equal rights.

I demand medicare for all. Yang is into stipends, otherwise he seems incredibly bright. No compromise on this issue can result in heathcare covering all citizens. Anything less is unreasonable. Insurance must be curtailed and the ownership society must be eliminated from these decisions. Lobbyists should just throw themselves into the ocean because I can't see anywhere they belong after 2020. Revolt will mean hunting them out.

Bernie Sanders has a record of fighting for equal rights. He is a perfect representation of what Americans should be.

Imo, the neo-Nazi and Black Panther have the very same needs and would prove effective fighting together to achieve a greater nation.

Latino rights are so important right now - highlighting how far from Constitutional rule our "leadership" will profiteer off of us all. The 5 billion in taxpayer money will not go to alleviate any of this border concentration camps, but a coalition of AMERICANS can. I want Border Patrol agents to fear this. I want them to remove themselves.

Natives have been shafted. Blacks obviously are not gaining economic ground. Poor people of every color need to hold each other accountable to fight the real enemy - corporate politicians and their payoff mechanisms.

I honestly feel so terrible today, the sun is blazing, the sky is beautiful and the air tastes sweet. All the while innocent immigrants are being herded like criminals to detention facilities, their families destroyed. Today is a very, very ugly day for all Americans.

can't say i disagree with anything you said...and trump has to go asap..he's an affront to 21st century civilisation, just like kim.
but honestly, we're so far down the rabbit hole as a society..i don't see anything on the horizon that's gonna' fundamentally turn things around.
because you can not deny A I..robotics..3D printing..to many people competing for fewer resources
technology in the next 20 years is going to render 80% starting from the bottom of the population unnecessary for the continued comfort of the top 20%
i wonder how long before the homeless begin disappearing?

Lots of great Dems. When there are less to divide the votes, expect to see them leading Trump by wider margins.

I'd bet the 2020 Dem ticket will be Biden-Harris.

But Trump is faring worse than Barack Obama at this same stage of his re-election race.

In the August 2011 NBC/WSJ poll, Obama held a 1-point edge over eventual GOP nominee Mitt Romney among registered voters, 46 percent to 45 percent.

Obama ended up winning the general election by 4 points, 51 percent to 47 percent.

ANYONE BUT TRUMP.

I personally would vote for a bucket of warm spit over Trump. This is not hyperbole, I actually think a bucket of warm spit would do a better job.

Rasmussen also says Americans favor repeal of the ACA by 16 points. Gallup says only 31% favor repeal while 63% say do not repeal

In 2018, Rassmussen Reports predicted that Republicans would win the generic ballot by 1 percentage point while the actual election results had Democrats winning by nearly 9 percentage points. This error of nearly 10 percentage points was the largest polling error out of major firms who polled the national generic ballot.

In previous elections post election analysis showed Rasmussen anywhere from 20th of 24 to dead last in polling accuracy

Rasmussen uses small sample sizes and only polls people with landlines which means they hit a more rural conservative pool of respondents

They're always skewed too Republican.

Nate Silver usually adjusts their positive Trump approval numbers down 4-6 points, which is more in line with all other polls.

Of the 6 largest polling companies Nate gave Trump the highest chance for victory over twice as high as the next highest

No gloating folks. Who remembers Hillary was ahead in the polls for the entire race and actually won by 3 million votes, if we lived in a democracy.
