Zogby Analytics Poll – Trump Approval Climbing Simultaneous To Main Street Economic Gains…

Zogby Analytics is out with a new survey of 1,300 “Likely Voters” and shows President Trump’s approval numbers are climbing and now around 45%.  However, the interesting aspect of the survey is the groups showing the highest gains in approval.

It won’t surprise you to discover the strongest gains in support for President Trump can be found amid the middle-class and working population of the U.S.  Those who are benefiting the most from Trump’s America-First Main Street economic policy are the constituent group with the largest gains in support.


♦Trump’s approval numbers have moved up slightly, especially among his base and a few other sub-groups not known for their support of the president.

♦When it comes to party, President Trump’s numbers are steady among Republican likely voters; he has a 76% approval/22% disapproval rating among Republicans, which is almost identical from our July poll. Among Independents, Trumps numbers have improved nearly seven points to 40% approval/50% disapproval. The president’s numbers are still down among Independents from a few months ago.

♦Trump’s numbers improved with Asian American voters surveyed; Trump’s approval stands at 43% approve and 55% who disapprove.

♦Trump saw one the biggest improvements among any sub-group with Hispanics; his approval increased 11% to 42% approval versus 55% who disapprove of Trump’s job as president.

♦When it comes to where voters live, large city voters-population >100k (39% approve/58% disapprove) and small city voters (44% approve/51% disapprove) are more likely to disapprove of President Trump. Small City voters (population less than 100k) were the largest increase in approval for Trum among sub-groups, with a 12% gain in approval since July. Trump does slightly better in the suburbs–47% approve/48% disapprove and he remains popular in the rural areas with 50% approve/44% disapprove.

♦Trump also continues to get higher marks among married voters-53% approve/43% disapprove versus single voters-31%approve/61% disapprove; homeowners-50% approve/47% disapprove versus renters-35% approve/59% disapprove, while NASCAR fans-58% approve/37% disapprove and Weekly Walmart shoppers-55% approve/43% disapprove.

♦Trump’s numbers also increased significantly among union voters from 43% approval to 51% approval in August. (full poll link)

These results don’t look good for the Democrat opposition party who see the largest part of their historic constituency benefiting immensely from President Trump.  It is no wonder the DNC and Democrat Leadership are now trying to steal President Trump’s middle-class economic platform.

Funny that…

What’s a good Vichy Republican to do?…

      Did you see his big approval increase with Hispanics? Wow. And that despite all the wailing and gnashing of teeth about deportations and Sanctuary City and DACA blah blah blah.

      I suspect because there are a lot of Hispanic citizens who are lower to middle class working people whose interests are aligned with the rest of us. They seem to have their race baiters, and the reconquistas, and most of all the open borders lefties who are making all the noise…

        Would that be the same Hispanics, Republicans, Independents and Democrats that destroyed Politico when they were polled about the RAISE Act.

        Immigration is the one topic that brings together Republicans, Democrats and Independents like no other issue. Our President is beyond brilliant by introducing the RAISE Act prior to the August recess.


        From the article linked above:

        Voters support most elements of President Donald Trump’s proposal to scale back legal immigration to the United States and change the criteria by which the U.S. admits immigrants, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

        In defending the bill, White House adviser Stephen Miller cited the popularity of provisions of the bill in public opinion polling and predicted a wave of popular support for a bill that’s long been stalled in the Senate.

        “Public support is so immense on this — if you just look at the polling data in many key battleground states across the country — that, over time, you’re going to see massive public push for this kind of legislation,” Miller said last week from the podium in the White House briefing room.

        In general, more voters support most elements of the legislation than oppose them.

        Majorities back limiting the number of refugees offered permanent residency (58 percent) and establishing a “points system” that would award points based on criteria such as education, English proficiency and prospective salary in the U.S. (60 percent).

        Support for some of the other provisions in the bill isn’t as strong but still exceeds opposition. Forty-eight percent of voters support reducing the number of legal immigrants by half over the next decade (LIE see my comment below) compared to 39 percent who oppose that. On what Miller called “unlimited family chain migration,” 45 percent support ending the ability of U.S. citizens and permanent residents to petition to get extended family members green cards, while 39 percent oppose ending that.

        As for English-language proficiency, 62 percent say it should be a factor in determining who should be allowed to immigrate legally.

        They even lied in their article!

        According to the poll, here are the percentages of those American voters who support the following seven options of how many legal immigrants should be added to the United States each year:

        24% — NONE
        22% — 250,000
        16% — Half a million
        14% — One million
        3% — One and a half million
        2% — Two million
        4% — More than two million
        14% — Not sure

        In other words, 62% of likely voters nationally say they would prefer cutting immigration at least as much as would the RAISE Act.

        Sylvia, all my hispanic-american friends, except one, voted for Trump. We know exactly who are the people crossing illegally, to take advantage of the system. Some of them are the same criminals that cause chaos in our birth countries. We see how they just come here to take and steal, we don’t like that they don’t pay taxes or insurance, and get better treatment than hard working americans. We know they make a lot of money and on top of that they use EBT’s, go to get food at food banks in our churches, etc. The hispanics that support Trump are the ones that came here legally and as PDJT says, we are here to work and be loyal to this country. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

          They are excellent neighbors.

They must have learned it from the blacks that went there, because I never once saw anyone white going there while I was there… That doesn’t mean there weren’t every any whites going.

          And I agree with you about them being treated better than the rest of us, which could also be related to the fact that the rest of us aren’t looking for any “treatment” from anyone, especially “big brother”… there is a long, long, row to hoe ahead of us making America great again.

          For the most part, people who have come to our country – legally – come here with high hopes for a better, freer, safer, more prosperous existence than the countries they left. I have to assume that they, too, look at the importation of third world living standards and practices and their impact on their quality of life, safety and education in their communities, much the same as we who have lived here all of our lives. The squalor, crime, disruption to school systems, syphoning of tax dollars and medical services, is something you cannot disregard unless you are a SJW.

          As our President re-sets the foundation of our country – increased security, less crime, better jobs and pay, strong pro-business environment, less taxes and government intrusion – I can’t imagine any fill in the blank – American not taking a long look and saying – “This guy is really working for me – when was the last time I have seen that – maybe I want this to continue”.

      Yes, he’ll have a good shot at taking these states if these Hispanic numbers stay on this track: Nevada, Colorado and maybe even New Mexico. It will also cement his hold on Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Virginia? Maybe, but the Swamp is pretty strong there now, but that and even Illinois and New York could tighten up a bit. 2020 becomes a cakewalk if this keeps up.

      But the best news is that Trump doesn’t need to negotiate with the Swamp creatures over RAISE… he can just dictate terms to them, and threaten their reelection in 2018. He’s got the whip hand now.

      HMMMMMmmmm I smell something that stinks more than chicken and pig feces combined.

      The North Carolina governor’s race may come down to voter fraud questions
      “[…] yesterday a formal protest was filed in Bladen County challenging over 400 fraudulent votes that stem from an “absentee ballot mill” run by a Democratic PAC. The details of that one look pretty bad. There were stacks of straight Democratic ticket ballots turning up, most of which had “suspiciously” similar handwriting on the witness signature line.[…]”

      that kinda already happened! on election night, there were suddenly 90,000 early votes “found” in liberal durham county, and when those votes were added, it gave cooper a big boost. i live in NC and was eagerly watching election results. mccrory was winning until about midnight when suddenly he was losing. it was thanks to the 90,000 votes that were “found” (appeared out of nowhere!!)

      That is what I remember. Also it took a LOOOOooooong time before all the counties were declared compared to normal. (Takes time to create all those extra ballots…)

      Dear 804hokie, or anyone else looking for a job … Please consider visiting a temp agency, if for no other reason than to go through its evaluation process. This can be great for morale, and especially beneficial if you’re told about a skill you could strengthen to better your hiring chances.

      Something I discovered (years ago) by signing up with temp agencies is that larger companies often use temp agencies to find both temps and full-timers. In both cases, they use agencies to pre-screen an applicant’s background and measurable skills (like software proficiency). But, shhhh, another strategy is to give the company a chance to “honeymoon” with a potential full-time hire.

      Using the agency as a go-between, an applicant is brought in as a temp for a short period to demonstrate their “fit”, avoiding the company’s time and paperwork of actually hiring someone. If the fit is good, the company pays a finder’s fee to the agency and the applicant is hired permanently. And if it isn’t, the applicant is not called back when the “short-period” assignment ends. Easy-peasy with nothing “messy”.

      Most temp assignments are set up for maybe 2-4 weeks, during which time all parties involved have a “temporary” mindset with “temporary” expectations. If you agree to any assignment offered to you, I would suggest you just do your best and NOT assume there’s anything else waiting for you when the assignment ends. But if the company’s ultimate goal is actually to hire a full-timer, the first clue will be the temp agency notifying you that the company wishes to extend the assignment for another week or so. And if the assignment is extended twice, this is a really good sign. Just be patient.

      Temp positions aren’t for everyone, usually don’t pay benefits, and may require coordination with your State unemployment agency (if still receiving compensation). But I myself was offered one permanent job this way — and accepted another — so thought the idea might help someone else out there. Good luck!

Such visibility would make the soup lines of the great depression seem insignificant by comparison.

    There is no way in hell that down South our President has a -6% approval rate while in the East, that rate is -4%. I think this polling company was mortified by our President’s numbers in the West and East and needed to fudge it big time in the South.

    I apologize in advance for pointing this out but how could the percentage be -6% in the South yet NASCAR fans – 58% approve / 37% disapprove and Weekly Walmart shoppers – 55% approve / 43% disapprove.

    They can’t even lie with their own numbers!

    Our President is absolutely killing it!

      Polls are just a ‘snapshot’ right?
      They are just a snapshot of the opinions at-the-time that the polls are taken.
      [That is, if they’re honest…which they are not.]

      It’s like the Dem-media throws out a bunch of negative stuff at Pres Trump…and then the pollsters go “Let’s do a poll right now!” to see the damage.

      So I view all the polls as a part of the Leftist/Globalist elitist group that is out to destroy our President, and enslave us.

    Good stuff. Thanks, Sundance.

    The real number is likely higher, as several people have pointed out.

    However, I do think Trump hit a snag with the Don Jr/Sessions/Scaramucci/Priebus time frame. That probably did cost him some GOP support. The good news is that the lost support is likely recoverable.

    This 45% figure in Zogby (Likely Voters) reflects the 44% (LV) number in today’s Rasmussen poll. The LV polls, to me, are much more important than any other polls. I think the LV polls do a better job of capturing GOP support and obviously a better job of capturing actual voter feeling as compared with talking to adults in California who know that their vote means nothing and don’t intend to vote one way or the other.

    The Manafort FBI raid may be the final bottoming-out of Trump’s numbers. Sure, there will be more leaks from the Special Counsel, but if anyone in the Trump orbit was going to have an FBI raid you’d think it’d be Manafort and/or Flynn. And if Flynn hasn’t been raided yet, it’s doubtful that’s going to happen.

    I honestly think that Trump at around 45-50% in a national LV poll is a great place for him to be in 2020. Because all he really needs to do is clean up in the swing states and he’ll get a second term. And he’s doing excellent work in the swing states to galvanize the base there. So if New York or California bring his overall poll numbers down, it doesn’t matter.

    Higher Trump poll numbers, though, could be key for the GOP in 2018. So in that sense I hope we can get all of the various poll figures up before next November. And, obviously, there is plenty of time to get that done.

    Trump went back on offense strongly today with his double press conferences. Good to see him back in command and it seems reasonable that such a solid presentation should assist him in further rising in the surveys.

      You forget the globalist have the REAL poll numbers.
      * They have the reports of the irate voters phoning their Reps and Senators to scream at them.
      * They have the nasty e-mails and letters sent to the Congress offal and the MSM.
      * Most of all they have the MILLIONS of RNC donor lit. returned with ‘If You don’t support President Trump, I won’t support you!”

      There are a LOT of truly pissed off, wide awake people out there (WITH GUNS) and THIS time the Elite can not pull a Nixon or a Kennedy without the backlash hitting home.

      Don’t think the shooting of Representative Steve Scalise wasn’t a wake up call no matter how much the MSM down played it.

      There are 22 million military veterans in the U.S. 2.7 million ‘Nam vets and 1/2 a million of them have PTSD. And believe me some of them are VERY SCARY DUDES who are now in their 60s and 70s with NOTHING TO LOSE and families they love who are threaten by the elite’s plans for the USA..

      As David Rockefeller allegedly said “This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long – We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”

      Rockefeller, who just died at 101, was the last in his generation that hailed from the old billionaire families and I think this is very significant. I am not sure the Elite/Left have the rabid driven but savvy and intelligent people to fill the shoes of Queens Elizabeth and Beatrix, David Rockefeller, Maurice Strong and George Soros. Often, very powerful people have spoiled brats or wimps for children.

      The core, is over 250 years old. “It was 248 years ago, in 1760 that Mayer Amschel Rothschild created the House of Rothschild that was to pave the way for international banking and control of the world’s resources on a scale unparalleled and somewhat mysterious to this date.” — From a fun 2008 article on the three top banking families: J.P.

    35% will always support Trump. 35% will never support Trump. The remaining 30% are what the battle is over. Of this group, I reckon about one third to a half of those support Trump but will never say so. Not until it is safe to do so.

    The uniparty knew that if Trump won in 2016, they were in big trouble. That’s why they lied and cheated and did everything possible to stop him from winning. Now, all they can hope to do is throw up a big enough smokescreen of Russia and WH chaos and congressional non action and whatever else to keep the people from seeing that President Trump is keeping his promises. The smokescreen isn’t working, and we’ll have the chance to prove that in 2018.

    We just need to hang tough and stick with our guy and not get distracted or demoralized. He’s winning. It’s not as fast or as bold as some might want, but it’s clearly visible if you look through the smoke.

    The only people who didn’t support President Trump, didn’t support him because they were either told he was Hitler (he’s not) or they thought he would go liberal after he was elected and break his election promises (he didn’t).

    It is impossible for him to ever lose support, if he keeps attempting to do ‘the right thing’ like he has his entire life. It is possible for him to gain MASSIVE support, as time proves all of the criticisms of him short sighted and wrong.

    With that said, I don’t believe the polls. I don’t even believe they actually call people. I’m sure they do a ‘straight’ poll every once in awhile, but most of them are just some guy writing numbers down.

    In an ironic reversal, President Trump’s growing strength with the electorate will drag Ryan & McConnell’s Congress kicking and screaming to his policies in the same way Newt Gingrich’s Congress dragged President Bill Clinton kicking and screaming to theirs.

    And then, when the policies prove successful and popular the RINO’s in Comgress will boast about how it was their idea all along, just as Bill Clinton still brags about all the policies Gingrich forced him to accept as if it was his doing.

He served on the advisory council for Bio-Technology for the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and as a commissioner on the Center for Strategic and International Studies Commission on Smart Power. Zogby previously served on the congressionally-created Advisory Group on Public Diplomacy for the Arab and Muslim World.[2]”

      Jeff, you missed one very important point.

      Once a person’s eyes are opened they never can put the rose colored glasses back on. AND there is nothing like losing your job and trying to find one among the boarded up businesses and decaying factories to wake you up to the fact something is REALLY WRONG.

      That was part of what was behind the Tea Party.
      December 07, 2009 Tea Party Tops GOP on Three-Way Generic Ballot

      ” Suppose the Tea Party organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district or the Tea Party candidate from your district?

      Democratic 36%
      Tea Party 23%
      Republican 18%
      Not sure 22%

      Tea Party 48% Obama 44%
      “In major issues, 48% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is closer to their views than President Barack Obama. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 44% hold the opposite view and believe the president’s views are closer to their own.”

      Other Rasmussen polls during the last decade:
      62% favor smaller government
      64% Think too many Americans are on Government Financial Aid
      49% Say Current Government Programs Increase Level of Poverty in U.S.
      83% Favor Work Requirement for Welfare Recipients
      72% Of American Citizens Want Off Shore Drilling

      Given those polls, Trump’s win and approval makes sense.

    That’s not the only reason Trump’s ratings are climbing! The main reason is that the jacka$$es have gone another step too far by blaming the dust up with North Korea on Trump! Anyone in their right mind knows who is to blame for this, Kim Jung-un, and of course Obama for not doing something when he should have, and for aiding and abetting North Korea.

    There’s a reason the poll is measuring approval and not who you would vote for.

    A lot of people don’t “approve” of PDJT because of his brashness, language, the effect of anti-Trump propaganda, etc. but prefer him to all other politicians and will vote for him.

    In the polling booth, that counts just as much as “approval”.


  46. James O'Malley says:

    Time to rant. Got into it last night with friends over the issue of Trump and his achievements executively. They honestly believe the economic growth is Obama’s policies “finally kicking in”, as they claimed, and that Trump has been completely ineffective except in getting Gorsuch successfully confirmed. Even went to great lengths to discuss Mnuchin and the Dodd-Frank parallel system for small/medium sized banks. But to no avail: apparently Trump, according to them, has been absolutely a failure, but Obama is somehow responsible for the massive changes of the past few months.


    And what’s worse, besides the fact that hey ganged up on me, is that they’d be perfectly happy voting for the same when the chance arises. They’d willing support policies that would destroy this country and not even bat an eye because they’re so convinced that Obama-esque policies are what’s best for the country.

    Oh, and apparently green energy is far cheaper than coal and natural gas-derived power production, and that coal doesn’t have a future. Maybe in 100 years it won’t, but now? Tell that to the miners who’ve finally gotten their jobs back.
