During the past several months we track Donald Trump’s approval and disapproval average here at PDog on our front page….
We get those numbers from Real Clear Politics….
They get their numbers from several polls
Well, today we a bit of a stunner
After the terrible week that Donald Trump has had?
His approval number has dropped in the ABC/Wash post poll by more than 5% points
THAT IS unusual…
Midterm election are just 2 months away and Republicans are being forever by THEIR party voters to support him….
If there are other polls that show Trump beginning a free fall in approval before the midterm elections?
Are the Republicans gonna lose even bigger that we think they could?
Could we see an erosion of Trump support within his party even before Mueller gets he shot at Trump?

The poll, released Friday and conducted just days after special counsel Robert Mueller delivered a one-two punch to the Trump administration in federal court, found a little more than one-third of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance. The poll was conducted last week, when former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was found guilty on tax and bank fraud charges and Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts, including campaign-finance violations, in a Manhattan courtroom.
Trump’s approval rating, according to the poll, was 36 percent. In the previous Washington Post-ABC News poll, conducted in April, Trump’s approval rating was 40 percent and his disapproval rating was 56 percent.
The poll found most Americans would oppose Trump granting a pardon to former associate Manafort — 66 percent of respondents said they were against a pardon. Only 18 percent said they would support a pardon…
…a majority of Americans side with Sessions, with 62 percent saying they are on his side. A slightly larger portion, 64 percent, said Trump should not fire Sessions.
Special counsel Robert Mueller saw similar positive percentages — 63 percent of those polled said they support Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and 29 percent said they oppose it, according to the poll. Further, 53 percent of respondents said they think Trump tried to interfere in Mueller’s investigation in a way that “amounts to obstruction of justice,” while 35 percent said he did not try to interfere….
