3 Midwest State Polls Trump at ~35% Approval
These three NBC/Marist polls were conducted August 13-17 — after the Aug. 12 unrest and violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and in the midst of Trump’s multiple responses to the events.
In Michigan, 36 percent of voters approve of Trump’s job performance (including 19 percent who strongly approve), while 55 percent disapprove (including 40 percent who strongly do).
In Pennsylvania, 35 percent give the president’s job a thumbs up (17 percent strongly), versus 54 percent who disapprove (41 percent strongly).
And in Wisconsin, 34 percent of voters approve of Trump (17 percent strongly), compared with 56 percent who disapprove (42 percent strongly).
In 2016’s general election, Trump won all three states by a combined 80,000 votes, becoming the first Republican to carry these states since the 1980s.
The shocking thing to me about this- wait, I’m not really shocked at all….is that about 35% of those polled (I’m guessing about 65% or so of white people) still support this absolute turd of a President and his equally suck ass administration. And rest assured that it is these same voters who drag themselves over broken glass and barbed wire to get to the voter booths. Meanwhile, the left-leaning majority of the country can’t be bothered to even show up to assure we have quality health care, education, science or civil rights. These polls showing Trump to be the absolute pig he is do nothing to dissuade me from thinking he will win again in 2016 and the Republican Know-Nothings once again keep both houses this next cycle.
Polls = shit. Elections are what matters. And most of our country’s voters choose to simply sit on their ass through it all.
