36% is not 'almost' 40%?
Another day, another samcraig Twitter thread…
It would be nice if POTUS wasn't consumed with such things.
On the other hand, maybe not.
Almost 40% is reaching when the numbers are that low.
Best domestic approval ratings on the planet are probably those of Putin and Al-Assad.
Should we draw any inference from this?
Our democracies need to try harder?

Id go for 38.6% - https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/?ex_cid=rrpromo

Lowest in Presidential history, Trump making low approval ratings great again.
He's going for 33%, clearly: "I have the best, the best third in the greatest country in the world."
Well, if he does excel at one thing all other president's haven't in 70 years, highest disapproval rating @ 6 months. YAH!
The only other recent US president with an approval rating this bad is Bill Clinton.
Bad approval ratings are probably just baked into US politics these days.
Trump isn't popular but Hillary only has 3% better approval ratings.
They don't make presidents like they used to.
I suppose that's only because Hilary hasn't gotten as much done as president as 45 has.
Isn't it funny that even after Bill Clinton's impeachment proceedings, his approval rate was still 15% higher than Trump's is now? And prior to those proceedings, we was 35% higher.
A 4% difference is pretty big in a country with nearly 50/50 polarization. But hey, I am fine with him rounding up in this case if he will also round DOWN. Think 34% will become almost 30? Not a chance.
40 percent is failing big. 36 - even worse. Can you image what Trump would be tweeting if Obama's approval rating were a 36? lol
Trump has selective tweeting complex though. Like today's defending of his son and bashing of Hillary yet again. If Chelsea had met with Russians to dig up dirt on Trump in an office in Manhatten and lied about it, he would be coming unglued. But if his family does something...meh, no big deal. Such selective outrage.
and it's the media's fault for covering it. Seems as though this goes against his narrative that he's ok with "bad" stories as long as they are true and fair lol
There's a margin of error associated with the poll. IIRC from the "stat lecture", 95% of the time, the true value is likely between 33 and 39%. And 39% is almost 40.
Or something along those lines.
That chart seems to correlate with job security, which started to take a dive in the 90s.
Truman's ratings were absolutely horrible later in his term.
What was "he" doing during his first six months? Winning WWII.
What was "he" doing later on? Losing Korea.
Plus, there was massive pushback from the Republicans.
Look here for more graphs.
I'm pretty sure Nixon dropped and Clinton went up, and etc. But the first 6 months has always seem pretty decent in approval ratings with good job security. Nowadays, it's a completely differ story.
The kind of thing one says when one is afraid to click on links.
(I believe that gallup has another page where they overlay Trump's graph onto those of previous presidents, so that one can see the comparative nadir of his numbers, but I can't find it.)
Yes, I'm stating the obvious. And I clicked on your link and ......Guess what? I was right about Nixon and Clinton.
What's your point though? Cause my point is that everything else aside, job security WAS mainly consistent with previous first 6 month ratings until the 90's.
To be fair Obama did keep his job and his first 6 months was excellent.
Bush and Clinton were different. Bush had 9/11 which he handled well and which pushed his approval to 90% and Clinton had Dole as the opponent who was terrible.
538 have one.
