He will either ignore it, call it fake news, or remind us that polls told us Hillary was most likely to win the 2016 election. But my guess is that he will be seething on the inside, terrified at the prospect that it might be true.

Boston Globe
Obama’s popularity is rising even as Trump is president

WASHINGTON — One American politician is currently dominating the cultural landscape, from social media to late-night television. His poll numbers look great, his Twitter posts are often among the most read in the world, and with every utterance, his impassioned base of supporters reacts with a fervor more typical for celebrities than former civil servants.

Meet Barack Obama.

The former president left office last January with favorable approval ratings, but historians, former staffers, and political observers now say his societal standing has reached a new echelon — and it’s partly due to his successor.

Donald Trump spent much of his first year in office attempting to erase Obama’s policy legacy, but experts, backed by loads of anecdotal evidence, say Trump’s unconventional and often divisive conduct has actually deepened the connection to Obama for liberals and independents. As the current president spent 2017 buffeted by scandals and igniting Twitter controversies, Obama seemed to increasing numbers a throwback to simpler political times, more deeply admired by those who find Trump ever more deeply objectionable.

The Hill
Poll: Trump approval drops to 37 percent

President Trump’s approval rating dropped slightly to 37 percent following a week of explosive allegations detailed in a new book about the Trump administration, according to a poll released Monday.

The first Gallup Poll of 2018 shows Trump’s approval rating dipped 2 percentage points in the last week. A Dec. 31 poll showed Trump with a 39 percent approval rating, his highest mark in months.

In the week since, Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” has been released, which contains numerous allegations about the Trump White House and sparked a public rift between the president and his former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon. ...

Gallup announced last week it will no longer issue daily updates on presidential job approval ratings. Instead, the group will update its polls on a weekly basis.

The shift results from a change in surveying methods, Gallup said.

Cf.: 538 presently has the president at 38.7% approve/55.0% disapprove (-16.3% net). Which are not-good numbers for a president, but this president has had worse; he's back to his October numbers.

Quinnipiac
January 10, 2018 - Trump Is Intelligent, But Not Fit Or Level-Headed, U.S. Voters Tell Quinnipiac University National Poll; First Year Was 'Disaster,' 'Chaotic,' 'Successful

President Donald Trump is intelligent, American voters say 53 - 44 percent, one of his lowest scores since Inauguration day, but voters say 69 - 28 percent that he is not level-headed and 57 - 40 percent that he is not fit to serve as president, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

Grading President Trump's first year in office, 39 percent of voters give him an "F," while 17 percent give him a "D." Trump gets an "A" from 16 percent of voters, a "B" from another 16 percent and a "C" from 11 percent of voters, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh- pe-ack) University Poll finds.

In an open-ended question, allowing any answer, 69 voters (not percent) describe Trump's first year in office as a "disaster," followed by 62 voters who say "chaotic," 44 voters who say "successful," 28 voters who say "horrible," 27 voters who say "great," 26 who say "good," 24 who say "terrible," 24 who say "embarrassing" and 23 who say "interesting." ...

American voters give Trump a negative 36 - 59 percent job approval rating, compared to a negative 36 - 44 percent score in a January 26, 2017, post-inaugural poll. In his first year as president, Trump's rating ranges from a low negative 33 - 61 percent approval August 2 to a negative 42 - 51 percent score February 7.

Poll: Majority of voters say Mueller probe is 'fair'

A majority of voters say special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia is “fair,” according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Fifty-nine percent of respondents said they believe Mueller is conducting a fair investigation, while 26 percent said it was not fair.

This number is in line with previous Quinnipiac polls. In December 58 percent said the investigation was fair, and in November 60 percent shared that view.

Among Democratic respondents to the January poll, 75 percent said the investigation was fair, compared with only 37 percent of Republicans and 61 percent of independents.

Newsweek
Trump Approval Rating is Rapidly Declining Among His Key Base in Latest Warning Sign for President

President Donald Trump’s approval rating has slipped significantly among white voters, including blue-collar whites who make up much of his base, according to newly published data.

Trump is losing his formerly strong grasp on white voters without a four-year college degree, a group that he won with 66 percent in the 2016 presidential election. But in 2017, his average among the same group had dropped to 56 percent, according to more than 600,000 interviews conducted by the polling company Survey Monkey, reported by The Atlantic Thursday.

White voters overall are turning away from the president as well, with 60 percent of the demographic disapproving of Trump’s performance. While 48 percent of whites with college degrees voted for Trump in 2016, his support dwindled to 40 percent over the following year. ...

Trump narrowly won young whites on his way to the White House, but now white millennials largely disapprove of his performance. Among millennial white women with and without a college degree and young men with a degree, between 62 percent to 76 percent disapprove of the president. And there is a 49-49 percent split with young white men without a degree.

How Does Trump Make Voters Feel? Almost 50 Percent Used This One Word

The majority of Americans are embarrassed or angry about a president they believe is increasing the likelihood of war between the U.S. and North Korea, a new poll suggests.

The survey from CBS News Polls asked voters their feelings on the president and how he has affected the country during his first year in office, with more than half of Americans surveyed sharing that they fear the president’s attitude on North Korea makes the regime likely to think about attacking the U.S.

And almost half of those surveyed (44 percent) used the word “embarrassed” to describe how they felt about Trump being president, while 35 percent used the word angry, and 38 percent pessimistic. In contrast, 18 percent said they were proud, 32 percent used the word optimistic, and a further 16 percent used the word happy.

On the topic of North Korea, 32 percent of voters believe Trump’s actions make the isolated regime afraid to attack America, while 68 percent believe it makes North Korea more likely to attack the U.S. first. ...

I'm actually one of the respondents to that poll so I can tell you that those numbers actually do work. The reason why is that on many of the questions you were given 8 to ten answers and told to pick as many as apply. So one question might be, "How do theDonalds tiny hands make you feel?" With the possible answers to pick from including,"afraid, embarrassed, empowered, encouraged, resentful, pretty, happy, sneezy..." I would have picked afraid, embarrassed and resentful.

Trump Resistance: Nearly Half of Americans Now Opposed to President, Poll Shows ...

Forty-one percent of Americans say they are strongly opposed to President Donald Trump, a 6 percent increase over the last year, a new poll from CBS News said.

The poll, released on Sunday, labeled the 41 percent as "resisters," referencing the broad protest movement again[st] Trump known as "the resistance."

Trump supporters, or “believers,” fell from 22 percent to 18 percent over the last year, according to the poll.

The number opposing Trump nearly matches the 43 percent who said the country is now worse off than when Trump took office, and the 44 percent who said they are "embarrassed" to have Trump as their president. Sixty-seven percent said they felt Trump was "working against me."

While a majority were concerned about the direction of the country in the CBS poll, race issues were particularly alarming to respondents. Fifty-nine percent said that racial divides had worsened since Trump took office.

Trump's approval rating at lowest for any president in their first year

Gallup poll shows Trump has averaged just 39% approval rating since his inauguration, a number that’s unprecedented for a US president.
Tue 16 Jan 2018 13.40 EST
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... first-year
That is according to polling by Gallup, which shows that Trump has averaged just a 39% approval rating since his inauguration. The previous low was held by Bill Clinton, whose first-year average stood 10 points higher than Trump’s, at 49%.

Recent surveys show most Americans view Trump as a divisive figure and even question his fitness for office. One relative bright spot for Trump is his handling of the economy, though even there his ratings are not as high as might be expected given a relatively strong economy.

Trump’s current approval rating in Gallup’s weekly poll is comparable to his average rating, standing at just 38%, with 57% saying they disapprove.

The persistence of Trump’s first-year blues is unprecedented for a president so early in his term. Americans usually give their new presidents the benefit of the doubt, but Trump’s “honeymoon period”, to the extent he had one, saw his approval rating only get as high as 45%.

Since then, Trump has spent more time under 40% than any other first-year president.

Very simple. Bad news about the economy is Obama's fault and Trump inherited a mess, while good news is all because of Trump.

538 presently has the president at 40.2% approve/54.3% disapprove/-14.1% net. In other words, all of these recent dumpster fires have helped his numbers.

The last time the president had these good of numbers (relatively speaking) was mid-May.

Look down at the bottom of the page where it has the graph of all other presidents. There is generally a December uptick. Its the season of good will to all men, and slugs. And Trump is under attack, so the base will rally a bit. But Trump still looks pathetic.

Two thoughts.

First: If the economy and stock market weren't as robust as they have been, he'd be around 28%.

Second: There are a lot of ashamed Trump supporters out there who will say what they think we want to hear. The key will be to discourage them from voting, the only poll that counts.

I think OSG's uptick in poll numbers have a lot to do with the amount of time he's spent golfing recently and how little time he's spent doing his job.

Could be. Remember, they kept him off his twitting phone, the last few weeks of the campaign, and his numbers went up. And when he started twitting again they went down at which point they were able to drag the phone off him for a few more days.
