Reuters Weekly Poll Reflects Upswing in Support For President Trump – Reuters Apologizes For Sharing…

Reuters weekly polling reflected an upswing in support for President Donald Trump.  Which immediately caused them to issue an apology along with the release.

Washington, DC – The Reuters/Ipsos Core Political poll has a significant realignment this week across a number of metrics. Most pronounced is President Trump’s approval rating which currently sits at 48% with all Americans. His number with registered voters is essentially the same at 49%. Corresponding with Trump’s stronger approval rating, evaluations of his job performance across the board are stronger this week from 57% approving of his handling of the economy (read more)

          This is why he won. The left just doesn’t get it. There has been dramatic change. How do you tell someone their taxes did not go down when they did. How can you tell someone that the job market is bad when they have a good job………..could go on and on.

          I still think our President’s approval numbers are even higher than shown. I say this on jobs, foreign and overall. As others have mentioned, one cannot ignore North Korea either.

          I don’t have any facts to back me up except to remind those of the polls during the election, and how far off those were. What I do say, these numbers to me are considerably high when it comes to all of the negative msm continuous reporting on our POTUS. It’s a constant 24/7 bashing. So, if Rueters and Rasmussen both say around 50%, I can’t help but think it’s really higher. One would think with all of the constant bashing, the numbers would be far lower.

          I know a lot more Americans have woken up, but if so, wouldn’t cnn and others viewership have dropped a lot more than what they say it has? Oops, there it is isn’t it? If cnn didn’t have their contract with all of our airports, their numbers would be far lower, way, way lower right? Okay. The numbers I’ve seen for msnbc and nbc are quite dismal, so I wouldn’t be shocked if they are closer to the truth.

          It’s sad nowadays one cannot even trust our polls whether it be for our President or the msm.

            You have plenty of facts to back you up in this poll. look at the approval numbers based on the issues. When people are asked about issues it becomes easier to favor Trump without approving the entire picture.

        That has always mystified me. Why isn’t it just as profitable for them to run phony polls favorable to the Republicans? Then again, why don’t they run a purely objective & honest poll and let the chips fall where they may – whoever benefits can pay them handsomely.

        Ok so I really know the answer – its’ because their polls are of interest to the eneMedia as “news”. Since the eneMedia is hard left, leftwing-favoring results are far more marketable $$$$. Got it.

        Wonder how much the pollsters get paid by the media for their twisted polls? That’d be interesting to find out.

This year has the same force as 2016 because they’re determined to wrest control of the House so they can spend the next 2 years continuing the witch hunt. IMO Mueller is hanging on for this outcome so he’ll be available for the Dem controlled House.

    The Mainsteam media’s job used to be to inform people about the news of the day. Eventually they decided their job was to tell us what to think, and how to think. Now it seems they can’t even pull that off. MSM might disappear entirely with enough polls like this.

      Media credibility has been totally crumbling during the past 18 months and they seem to be determined to stay the course. Good, their days are numbered. Their years of dominating the way people get the news is over and done with. Like the original heyday of newspaper and radio reporting, television news is becoming a vestige of what it once was.

      The job of the media remains the same; to gather and report the news. Its just that evermore there are less adherents to that duty. There are a few such as Sharyl Attkisson who still uphold that principal duty of the press.

      But what you detect is not new. It may have become more rabid but the ‘reporters’ conflating opinion with objective fact is not new. I’m not sure if even Hearst and his yellow journalism was the true advent of this.

      I think we can all see that the media have pushed it so far that their demise is likely. Their obfuscation of fact to favor unbalanced opinion coupled with the advance of alternate news sources via the internet and inexpensive print spell doom for the mainstream media. (its quite inexpensive to self-publish as never before) Until then, the MSM can be ignored. In fact, I encourage all to do just that, to ignore them in every way possible, for the purpose of rending them to irrelevancy and to cut off their funding.

    After the uprising of the 17th of June
    The Secretary of the Writers’ Union
    Had leaflets distributed in the Stalin Blvd.
    Stating that the people
    Had forfeited the confidence of the government
    And could win it back only
    By redoubled efforts.

  7. It’s no mistake what Giuliani did this week RE: Stormy. The Trump camp WANTS the media to chase the Stormy BS story. It’s been poll tested, i.e. American voters DO NOT CARE. Let the fake news networks chase it all they want, because they’re gonna chase something. Might as well put the cheese in the maze where you want it and have the dirty rats chase something completely ridiculous while the rest of the country moves forward and the economy keeps rockin’. 😉

      This is reminiscent of the old joke about (pick a political figure) can walk on water and the media makes hay of it and writes that that person cannot swim.

      I suggest perusing several different sources to try to glean what was actually said, by whom, and in what context.

      What I gather here is that Nikki Haley is not ramrodding for President Trump to immediately shut down Mueller so the media reports that as Haley being opposed to the President. Notice, Haley did say she thinks the Mueller bidness should be completed as soon as possible. One may read into that as they may.

      I’m not fond of Haley because of her behaviors before she was called up as Ambassador. But the opinion of President Trump of Haley is all that matters here.

        Let us consider it differently. The President has selected well skilled sheepdogs. There is bound to be friction between such personalities. Yet that does not mean they not once forget they are acting in cohesion towards accomplishing a set of defined goals. They do not go off the reservation, there are no loaners here.

        Or would it be that the President surround himself with doormats and sycophants? Mind you, this is on the world stage.

    People go to work and think the sky hasn’t fallen a dozen times it was supposed to by POTUS. The look at America and its going well, they look at America in the world and is going well. So the more the Left treat them as stupid by feeding a negative POTUS spin the more the election prospects of POTUS improves.
    Its called shoting yourself in the foot.
    Thats why POTUS comments on it but doesnt stamp it out. Chuck S has caught on as have a couple of others but they cant pull up MSM because that is all they have in a 24 hour news cycle. They cant go to policy they have none. What they did have under O has absolutely proven to not work. Bottomline is the more the Left does this the more support they drive to POTUS its a beautiful thing! So dont get mad just hope they dont twig to it.

    I’m curious if the POTUS slow walks Mueller so that this issue is front and center during november, does this more energize the left or right. My guess is that the left will be more hurt by this than the right because Trump’s popularity is in the increase and Mueller is sinking. I think slow walk their probe and allow voters the opportunity to punish the left for this abuse.

    For all those hoping this translates into a win in November elections, I urge a some caution. Note, this is a media “popularity assessment vs the President” and NOT the republicans in general. This all means ZERO if the Republican Candidates and RNC do not get on board with the President’s agenda to strengthen themselves in the local state elections, which are dominated by democrat supporting media narrative, sanctuary city driven population changes, local tax money distribution issues, etc. The RNC still has not initiated any sort of public campaign to align their candidates with Trump’s successes or policies in a believable manner. This non-alignment remains the republican’s Achilles Heal for November.
