The Trumpslide cometh

You might want to start sporting those Trumpslide 2020 shirts right about now:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove. The latest figures include 34% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8.

President Trump has a stronger approval rating today than media darling Barack Obama did back in 2010 on this same day. Back on February 7, 2010 Barack Obama had an approval rating of 44% while 56% of likely voters disapproved of the far left president.
Donald Trump has already shown himself to be the best President of the 20th and 21st centuries. And he's barely gotten started.

Coolidge didn't have to outmaneuver his own disloyal bureaucracy, did he?

I don't think these polls are accurate, but just looking at the change in the polls gives a lot of reasons for optimism. Given that tax cuts are just now starting to hit people's wallets and deregulation still hasn't really been felt, there's still a lot more upside economically speaking. And does anybody really think that Trump won't win re-election if he delivers even 4% growth for his first term? Bush was weighed down by Iraq and didn't have that kind of economic performance in his first term and he was re-elected.

Blogger Anchorman February 08, 2018 11:21 AM  

The presidency has grown in power for decades.

Trump is literally giving up power with his deregulation push. In addition to the economic and civil benefits, this is a massive shift in thinking.

Regarding the Trumpslide.

His advantage: The media can't hurt him in 2020, relative to the way things currently are.

His disadvantage: The economy can't help him in 2020, relative to way things currently are.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan February 08, 2018 11:25 AM  

It helps a lot that Trump helps the left auto-delegitimize, instead of the usual conservative tailgate shtick.

So yeah Trump is hands down the best since Reagan at the very least ("Evil Empire" and "Tear down this wall" being perhaps the best rhetoric of all time till at least "Fake news")

@3: Rasmussen is better than most, because they are more data driven and much less likely to try and "spin" their results to promote an agenda. Still, it's only a data point and one that changes literally daily at that, but it's not like this is the latest CNN poll.

Check out the 2018 Generic Congressional Vote: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/2018_generic_congressional_vote-6185.html

Dems have dropped from +13 around Christmas last year to +6.2 currently.

Blogger Thucydides February 08, 2018 11:46 AM  

A more important consideration his if President Trump has "coattails".

Obama didn't, and over the course of his 8 years in office the Democrats lost 1000 seats at the Federal, State and local levels, decimating the Democrat party as a political organization.

President Trump is delivering on his promises, which is a huge positive for him, but will this translate to votes for Republicans at all levels? Republicans in the Congress have largely been obstructionist rather than supportive. I don't have a clear picture of Republicans at the State or local levels, but if they have been "Never Trumper's", then the economic and other good news might not rub off on them either.

What may be needed is a concerted effort to take over the Republican Party from within. The TEA Party movement tried this, primarying many Republican incumbents, but their efforts were eventually overwhelmed by the Party establishment and the fecklessness of many TEA Party candidates once elected. Populist candidates are needed at all levels, both to support the President during the next 7 years, but also to provide a "bench" to keep Trumpian populist candidates in offices for decades to come. I'm not convinced that there is enough of a movement to really displace GOPe's, or more importantly, to create and maintain the intellectual and political foundations of Trumpian populism past January 2025.

You didn't have to set the bar that low. Win or lose, Trump is going to be mentioned in the same breath with the greats. We haven't had any greats in the 20th or 21st centuries.

Coolidge was willing to do nothing, in a time when most citizens were still Americans, and most Americans sort of expected the president to do little or nothing. The Federal government was mostly set up to do nothing, so Coolidge didn't have a huge bureaucracy fighting tooth and nail to do evil in his name.

In order to do nothing like Coolidge did, Trump has to engage in a heroic struggle against titanic, evil forces.

If Trump and what few allies he has in the GOP apparatus don't up their GOTV game, 2018 is looking to be rough.

@8
So far I have seen barely any coattail effect for Trump. His 2016 ticket was an insurgency, and his voterbase know this. Further, his endorsed primary candidates have been hit or miss.

@7 - These polls may be encouraging, but do NOT underestimate the sheer power of the mass hysteria bubble the Democrat party has erected.
The DNC's base has been turning out at "presidential" levels for special elections, causing 40 point shifts leftward.

https://twitter.com/cFidd/status/961066775046696960
"Democrats just flipped another deep red seat, this time in Missouri. Democrat Mark Revis just won MO HD-97."

By all accounts this is the democrat base in another 95%+ turnout in a red state just like Moore.
This is muad'dib level anti-American fervor even 2010's Tea Party would not have matched.

Blogger Longtime Lurker February 08, 2018 12:06 PM  

@8: Republicans are pretty close to their natural limit in the House with 238 seats, which is below their recent all-time high of 247.

Dems need to pick up 24 seats to gain control. Average turnover in non-presidential general elections (if memory serves) is 26. 41 House Republicans have announced retirement or plans to seek other offices. Only 16 Dems have. Dems also have a significant fundraising advantage in 40 House races.

On the Senate side, Dems are defending a record 23 seats, 10 of which are in states won by Trump.

Expect President Trump to hit the campaign trail hard.

@11: I see the same things you see. If memory serves, the Dems won that special election in Missouri by 100+ votes.

That said, the generic party preference is a useful leading indicator. At Dems 13+, expect a wave. At Dems 6.2+, expect gains, but no wave.

My hunch is that Trump is going to campaign hard for Republicans, if only to prevent the Pelosi Impeachment Circus from coming to town.

@14

If trump had actual loyalty out of the RNC he could have gone nuclear and pushed through a new "judicial act of 1802"

Trump's election proved one thing very clearly: American conservatives want a fighter, and had they cleaned Obama's judicial house it would have mobilized the base like never before. They still could, but gl getting soy-boys and turncoats like Flake and McCain to do it.

Because he did not, Obama's activist judges have been actively gerrymandering republican states from the bench on behalf of democrat activist groups. This has been happening mostly under the rader, but the loss of 9 seats as noted by @12 is possibly a result thus far.

Of course you will NEVER see these "unique" rulings applied in reverse, not that there are any grass-roots or even RNC-astroturfed groups doing this from the republican side.

The lack of community organization and GOTV is absolutely concerning. Generation zyklon is starting to come of age, the public is fed up with a DNC whose ticket openly treasonous and anti-white, and there's virtually no voter outreach, just the same old loser tactics of think tanks and policy papers published but never read.

16 Yep. So I hope I dont get into trouble with moderators. I almost sent an email to Vox over Becks show today it was appalling all lies, all 2 years behind RE alt retards. 1st hour I was listening closely to Beck lying, he even linked Dugan to Alex Jones, then he went on about non entities like Pro EU Spencer or RS.

Beck is clueless and lying regarding this matter. It is like the team never read or even heard of the very basic 16 points that are totally rational.

Anyhow 30 mins into the 1st hour, Beck said he will expose the alt right but again Beck only looks to irrelevant RS and Chltsville then some silly election in IL.

I am in favor of the poor sick left furthering their tantrums they dont want to live, work or anything, leave them in their weirdo cities and their 60 genders, these sick people plan on laying in front of the military parade to further reddened the country for the Trumps, the media to Beck just don't get it.

Yes, this impact will start to hit the public opinion over the next couple months.

I'm in CA and earn well but STILL have 3% more in my paychecks.

Calculations show only people making about 170k and above in tax-heavy blue states (NY, CA) are receiving a net tax increase.

It's been amusing forcing democrats like Pelosi to defend the rich from a more progressive tax code, not that it lasted long with a complicit media changing the topic after it became clear to them what was happening.

That said, the media's unified fear-mongering of a tax hike will clash horribly with the reality of people's paychecks. I can just hear trump saying "not you, you are fake news!" in collective heads across america as they notice their pay packets getting fatter over the next 8 weeks.

Though obviously CBS is lying. That wall is because of the constant stream of leaks from Democrats, not from increasing partisanship (even if that is the case).

If they can find the money to build that wall, they can certainly find it to build The Wall.

Flashback to 2016: "Texas is in play! Florida is blue! Ohio is blue! Michigan is solid blue! Pennsylvania is solid blue! Wisconsin is solid blue! The Blue Wall stands strong! Trump can't win! It's IMPAWSSIBLE!!!"

In November-December, the blue wave was the likely conclusion for the 2018 midterms. But a lot has changed in just one month. And the trends are RAPIDLY moving in the opposite direction.

The Democrats are suddenly crashing and falling in every poll. Within a month (December to January) they fell in an important poll from +15 to +2. And RCP overall from +13 to +6.

Democrats had energized their base so far by keeping discussion in the hypothetical ("all these horrible things will happen, we promise"). But now real world results are debunking the propaganda.

The economy is booming. Jobless claims are at a 45 year low. Wages will inevitably rise soon, finally. The tax cuts are turning out to be a pleasant surprise for tens of millions who bought into the fake news propaganda. Many Fake Right Spencercucks scoffed at the tax reform. But I knew it would create a huge shift in public perception because of how immediate and personal the benefits would be. Plus, it is red-pilling for those who took the fake news seriously before. "Trump is raising your taxes, we promise. come out and vote for us in the special elections". LOL this blatant betrayal of trust will cost them dearly in the midterms.

Furthermore, ISIS is more or less finished. Refugees are down. Illegals are being deported. Legal immigration will possibly be reduced and The Wall will possibly be funded. Speaking of which...

The DACA deal is looking like a lose-lose for the Democrats. Either they are rejecting DACA amnesty or they are funding the wall + cutting legal immigration (while also tilting it in favor of white immigrants). Any of these two will totally DEFLATE their far-left base, who they need for midterms. At the same time, their open opposition to Trump's popular immigration reforms (end chain migration, end visa lottery, secure border, etc) is deflating their support among moderate liberals, who they also need for midterms.

The Democrats have a unique problem with their impossible coalition. Their far-left base deflates their moderates. And their moderates deflates their far-left base. All of them were united against a Hitler who was gonna gas everybody, raise taxes, energize ISIS, and kill the economy, cause nuclear war, etc. But that was until early this year. People are starting to feel very differently now.

People will feel even more positively about Trump if the North Korea situation shows some positive results. Which it is looking like it will.

On top of all this, the infrastructure bill will boost things even more. Some kind of efforts at prison reform could make even more of a difference. The Republican approval is rising dramatically. Trump's approval is rising dramatically.

All in just ONE month.

We're only in February. The midterm elections at at the end of the year.

By then, Trump will have delivered many more positive real world results. These will counteract the hypotheticals and the propaganda. Just like the surprise tax cuts did. The deflated leftist base will see the Democrats as traitors no matter what they do on DACA/Wall.

These are very encouraging things. The Republicans will possibly retain control of Congress.

Scott Adams and Cernovich were predicting blue wave in December. But both now predict a Republican win. I agree with them.

Though Cernovich is right. He says Republicans should also add some more incentives to motivate their voters to get off their ass to vote. People turn out more if they have something to gain.

If marketing genius Trump can find a strong incentive/message to encourage turnout, combined with the strongly pro-Republican trends, we may even see a red wave.

The "Great Window" opened by Wikileaks, Trump, and potentially the sacrifice of Seth Rich is real, and great things are being done. But I would disagree that we've barely gotten started. We only know with certainty the window will be open for another year, and the Russia probe REALLY has to be concluded by May-June, or you can believe there is going to be an "October Surprise" in the form of an all-out, kill-or-be-killed Bob Mueller indictment blitz. That gives Trump about 4 months to slay the Mueller dragon, and another 6 months to build the wall. If the mid-term is won, that is well. But the other side has plans of their own in the works, and the GE needs to break their line SOON.

I've written my congressmen and Senators and urged them to leverage the work of Nunes and Gowdy, et al and go over to the offensive now. A memo being released to the public is not the offensive. Indictments, Subpoenas, Contempt of Congress charges are the offensive. At this moment I don't know what else to do except talk to people and try convincing them that the Nunes memo is a big deal.

Hi LP9,

It was so brutally skewed, and such a distortion of truth that I was just hoping that through some miracle, Vox would magically call in and obliterate that tool.

Then he went on to explain how he has been studying revolutions for 15 years, and naturally, the Alt-Right would soon birth Adolph Hitler II. I was focusing on the radio so much that I walked out of the office not knowing what I went in there for in the first place.

It is infuriating that there is no rebuttal to his out and out lies. And he spewed it out as if it were gospel, and he the Apostle Paul. Outrageous!!

Key voting demographic: middle class white women (especially the latte drinking urbanites). They are herd thinkers and use every tactic to lure and shame them to support the left. How this plays out is shown in the #metoo where a typical woman is being told to toe the line and resist the evil patriarchy.

As for the traditional minority democratic voters, who leads the DNC in the next election will be telling. If it's a white person, I think this nominee will do horribly against Trump. The Schumers will play the race card (DACAtears) and appeal to emotion. Nothing more.

But, if they go for a minority (say Kamala Harris), I think what we will see is the right go all out in stating her supporters are basically racist. Same for any woman who picks her - the rhetoric we will use should be merciless. Call them sexist. Expose their blind loyalty.

One thing you also need to look at is that traditionally, all polls have automatically given the democrats a 7% boost. Hell, Gallup flatly admitted this. That means that in a very real way, the number is likely closer to 55%, which, as far as I can tell, blows away approval ratings of every other president in the first year since they started...you know... having presidential approval ratings.

This evidence was displayed back during the election.

Need details, as in exactly how do they do their polls? Who do they poll? Where? Landlines? Who of Trump supporters even bothers to answer when poll takers call? I know at least half a dozen who say they will not answer. If Rasmussen does not tell about all their methods, then they are fake. Being somewhat less biased is not Truth, in fact, modern polls cannot reach the truth by phone polling.

Teddy the progressive, who got Wilson into office and trampled the constitution with parks? No.

Eisenhower? He might have meant well, but I'm not sure he rose to Coolidge's level.

Teddy's self-monument on Rushmore should be dynamited off.
