Gallup: Trump's only friend is a Dog

Recommended Posts

 

The public's overall mood has soured since Gallup's post-election measure in November. Specifically, satisfaction with the direction of the country and views of economic conditions in the U.S. have worsened significantly.

So, too, has Congress' job approval rating, which, at 15%, is the lowest of the 116thCongress. President Donald Trump's job approval rating has fallen to 39% -- down seven percentage points from before the election. In contrast, nearly two-thirds of Americans approve of the way Joe Biden is handling his presidential transition.

 

Americans' Views of the Nation, November vs. December

GALLUP

 

The latest Dec. 1-17 Gallup poll was conducted as COVID-19 cases continued to surge in the U.S., Congress attempted to negotiate another economic relief bill with no success and Trump refused to acknowledge Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election.

The coronavirus is cited as the most important problem in the country by 33% of Americans outpacing mentions of government or poor leadership (20%) and the economy (10%).

Americans' Satisfaction With U.S. Direction Drops Further

Overall, 16% of U.S. adults are now satisfied with the direction of the country. This is the second consecutive month that satisfaction has fallen. It was as high as 45% in February, but it declined as the pandemic took hold in the U.S., hitting a low point of 13% in July and August. After a brief preelection rebound, satisfaction is dropping again.

US-Sat

Line graph. Americans satisfaction with the way things are going in the U.S. since January 2020. Currently, 16% of Americans are satisfied, down from 28% in October and 21% in November.

This overall decline is driven primarily by Republicans, whose satisfaction fell from 60% in Gallup's final preelection measure in October to 22% in the most recent poll, likely a reaction to the election outcome. Independents' satisfaction dropped more modestly to 14%, while Democrats have become slightly more satisfied than they were in October and November. Still, Democrats' satisfaction is 10 points below Republicans'.

Would this be the time the Faithful will pooh-pooh the results from this poll?  

Likely the same folks who bragged about President Trump's approval rating once approaching the 50% mark.

If Trump's only friend is a dog, It must be the stuffed Rin Tin Tin stolen from the Hollywood museum.

The irony is that Trump doesn't like dogs.

I'm surprised.  I figured they would be up instead of down.  This is the best stretch of his presidency yet.  He's been completely absent from governing, has mostly stayed quiet on big matters, and spent his time golfing.  Had he done that for the last 4 years instead of being his usual asshole self - he probably would have been re-elected.

He doesn't give a shit about our Dog or any other dog or any other human being.  Except maybe Ivanka, but that's just lust.

One in 17 persons in the U.S. are infected, One in 1000 are dead. It makes a difference, no matter what the denialists say.

Even Murdoch's NewYork Post, which has been rabidly tRump-suporting, just turned on him.  "Stop The Madness!" cover headline.

You lose Murdoch, pretty soon you might even wake up Moscow Mitch.

Great... this means that in about 12 years of this, we'll have achieved the 80% needed for herd immunity

I wonder what the next 3 Presidents are gonna do about it?

The CDC already set worst case scenarios. 

"Between 160 million and 214 million people in the United States could be infected over the course of the epidemic, according to a projection that encompasses the range of the four scenarios. That could last months or even over a year, with infections concentrated in shorter periods, staggered across time in different communities, experts said. As many as 200,000 to 1.7 million people could die."

It's the strain on our health care system that will become the most serious problem since we have just 925,000 beds to address this problem. We either take the problem seriously or we die.

Fill your boots. I can't be bothered opening up any of his posts long enough to downvote, so I'm in the ignore and mock camp.
