In the 27th day of Donald Trump’s border wall government shutdown it has finally begun to happen….
Donald Trump is beginning to lose support even with his base supporters….
In the true historical way in which the guy operates…
He’s screwing HIMSELF…
His intransigence, and effort to leverage Congress into making good on promise to build a border wall, with taxpayer money is increasingly seen as a hurtful to government employee’s and the Americans in general…
We are not ‘Enjoying the Ride’….
The sadder part is the Republican lawmakers in the nation’s capital continue to seem unwilling to vote to put a halt to Trump’s foolishness….
There are also thoughts that this shutdown could become a damper on the American economy also….
While the longest government shutdown in U.S. history continues, President Trump’s approval rating is down, and there are cracks showing with his base.
A new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds Trump’s approval rating down and his disapproval rating up from a month ago. He currently stands at 39 percent approve, 53 disapprove — a 7-point net change from December when his rating was 42 percent approve, 49 percent disapprove.
And the movement has come from within key portions of his base. He is:
- Down significantly among suburban men, a net-positive approval rating of 51-to-39 percent to a net-negative of 42 percent approve, 48 percent disapprove. That’s a net change of down 18 percentage points;
- Down a net of 13 points among white evangelicals, from 73-to-17 percent approve to 66-to-23 percent approve;
- Down a net of 10 points among Republicans, from 90-to-7 percent approve to 83-to-10 percent;
- Down marginally among white men without a college degree, from 56-to-34 percent approve to 50-to-35 percent approve, a net change downward of 7 points.
“For the first time, we saw a fairly consistent pattern of having his base showing evidence of a cracking,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, which conducted the poll. “Don’t know if that’s temporary — tied to the government shutdown — or a broader problem the president is having.”
The percentage of people now saying they strongly disapprove of the job the president’s doing is up to 45 percent, the highest for President Trump since December 2017…..
