Polls, Polls, Polls....Trump Devolves

As Trump devolves, or, if you prefer, dissolves into a public opinion abyss, we think it is time to catch up on the extent of the decent.

First, a reminder of the man, his psyche and his embarrassing reality.

Let's start our review with a poll from the GOP and Trump's communication and propaganda outlet: Fox News.

Overall, the poll shows continued approval slippage among poll respondents. A critical consideration of the poll results is the respondent group probably includes people who voted from Trump.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,005 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from October 22-24, 2017.

The image above doesn't is stark but pales when compared against a trend review of Trump's approval/disapproval over a period of time. Herewith is a copy of the trend cut from a full Fox News Poll report pdf file.

Fox News Editors are quick to attribute Trump's most recent poll results to our summer storms. The excerpt above seems to poke a hole in that result assessment.

Morning Consult Poll

The poll surveyed 1,988 registered voters and from Oct. 19 to 23 — at the height of the controversy over Trump’s phone call to Myeshia Johnson and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points

 The latest Harvard-Harris survey

The Harvard-Harris Poll online survey of 2,159 registered voters was conducted between Oct. 14 and Oct. 18. The partisan breakdown is 36 percent Democrat, 32 percent Republican, 28 percent independent and 4 percent other.

The Harvard–Harris Poll survey is an online sample drawn from the Harris Panel and weighted to reflect known demographics. As a representative online sample, it does not report a probability confidence interval.

The Military Times also reports on survey results among a respondent group of active military.
