Like the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more the lie of living just strong and independent leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

At 33% Approval Trump Is Now Worst President In History


Republicans experiencing profound embarrassment over Trump's performance in office.

The voters who launched President Donald Trump into the White House appear to be growing tired with his administration just six months through his tenure.

A new poll this week from Quinnipiac University found that not only had Trump's approval rating sunk to a new low, but support among key demographics Trump won during the 2016 election—most notably white voters without a college degree—had also dropped off.

Just 33 percent of voters approved of Trump's job performance overall, a sharp decline from 40 percent approval in the Quinnipiac poll at the end of June. Sixty-one percent of voters disapproved of Trump in the latest survey.
But even among white, non-college voters—the folks often credited with handing Trump the presidency—the president's approval rating was underwater. Just 43 percent of that demographic approved of Trump's job performance while 50 percent disapproved. In June, 53 percent of white voters without a college degree approved of the president. In the 2016 election, meanwhile, 66 percent of whites with no college degree voted for Trump, according to exit polls.

"It's hard to pick what is the most alarming number in the troubling trail of new lows for President Donald Trump," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll in a statement. "Profound embarrassment over his performance in office and deepening concern over his level-headedness have to raise the biggest red flags. The daily drip drip of missteps and firings and discord are generating a tidal wave of bad polling numbers."

Even among white, male voters—62 percent of whom voted for Trump in November, according to exit polls—were split on Trump. Forty-seven percent of white men approved of the job Trump is doing while 48 percent disapproved.

Nearly every survey this week was not kind to Trump. For instance, Rasmussen Reports—a firm that has been criticized as right-leaning and has long found better results for the former reality TV star compared to other pollsters—found the president's approval rating at one point dipped to an all-time low of just 38 percent. By the end of the week, the weighted average from data-focused website FiveThirtyEight had Trump's approval rating at just 37 percent, an all-time low.

The range of presidential approval ratings in Gallup's history stretches from a high of 90% (George W. Bush after 9/11) to a minimum of 22% (Harry Truman in 1952). The average is 53%. Trump is performing well below average, worse now than all other newly elected presidents at this point in their first year.
At roughly the same time in July of their first years in office, Dwight Eisenhower was at 69% approval, John Kennedy at 75%, Richard Nixon at 58%, Jimmy Carter at 62%, Ronald Reagan at 60%, George H.W. Bush at 66%, Bill Clinton at 45%, George W. Bush at 57% and Barack Obama at 58%.  -from Gallup

My Take:  Every poll from every outlet, even Trump's favorite polls, show support falling in every category including his base supporters and yet the clueless ego-ridden Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to declare that his political base is “bigger & stronger than ever before” despite recent polling — which he branded “fake”.  What else can Trump be but a spoiled brat man/boy ignoring facts in a seemingly perpetual fit because he does not get what he wants.
Some of his supporters, as demonstrated in widespread polling, are in fact waking up but there is still a cabal of dumbed-down prideful Trumpanzees intentionally hiding in their insular bubble world, Lol. Some of these did get what they wanted out of Trump or think they did and some wouldn't know the difference. 
Really when you look it in the face, and I have, it is mostly all stubborn pride. When you corner them they can say really nothing rational. So what is actually underneath? Racism, hate, fear, jealously, take your pick of irrational emotional un-intelligence.
