    it was up to 50 percent which was somewhat low anyways, when other Presidents were in a crisis they numbers sored way above that.
    But this week it has plummeted down to 45 percent, the briefings are not working. this could be bad news for trump but we will see.

    I thought the 1200 check would get some folks on his But I guess not. There I much to disprove of.

    I can't figure out how to copy some links on this new small laptop but google Trumps briefings aren't working his approval ratings plummet.

    The first bit of "bigly" good news I've heard in a while.

    If only his satisfaction rating were to plummet so low as to become a plughole! Few things would offer me more joy.

    Except there's an issue with that. First place 45 percent wont reelect him second place, every President who has been in a huge crisis like this one, it is normal for their popularity to shoot up high. Trump is the.only one who's popularity has gone down, so it's not a good place for him to be in.He needs more then 45 percent to be reelected.

    You might be right. I hope you are right. Don’t be too confident.

    I read a whole article on what happens when America gets in crisis like this. We are emotional about the President and its usually the high point of the Presidents popularity, it is unusual for the Presidents approval rating to not shoot up high.

    So Republicans can spin it anyway they want, but it is not a good sign for Trump

    He wasn't elected last time. ~45% is what he got in 2016. He's still the sitting president.

    Now he's got lots more power over the people who actually decide the presidential race. And the Democrats continue to shoot themselves in the foot.

    If I'm not mistaken, the first U.S. COVID-19 related death occurred on February 29th At that time Trump's Disapproval/Approval rating (as reported by FiveThirtyEight) stood at 53.3 to 42.2. Today it stands at 50.3 to 44.4. In other words, it is marginally better. Furthermore, there is a possibility that his position could strengthen if he leverages an increasing clamor for an end to the shutdown and some return to normalcy.

    There is no silver lining here.

    The reason why they said it was plummeting is that it had got up to 50 percent, for a moment, his popularity got better. Now its back down to 44 percent.
