Rasmussen and IBD proved to be the most accurate during the election.

CNN uses multiple polls vs Fox using just Brannon's numbers

Rasmussen has it best.

BTW, Bubba's approval ratings were below Trumps in his first 119 days.

It was a Gallup poll reported by CNN, not that that will change opinions.

I've seen a few other polls recently indicating his approval rating is in the mid-upper 30s. Since each are biased I'd just take an average and call it upper 30s.

Either way it's not something to be proud of. Especially when there are polls about impeachment that get similar numbers.

I chose Fox because I prefer Fox out of the two; however, neither is probably correct. CNN viewers are going to be more likely to be against Trump while Fox viewers have a higher likelihood as they appeal to a more conservative audience (it's also important to consider here while looking at the Fox statistics that there's a good handful or more of conservatives that don't like Trump).

I think Fox probably is, it seems those who support Trump are largely unaffected by any controversy he's gotten into, and that in some cases they love it. There seems to be a decent number of Americans that just like his Hand Grenade to the typical style.

I'm not sure about that. I've heard many conservatives, mainly more religious ones, who are concerned about his controversies mainly with women and his rhetoric he used during the primaries and general mainly towards women.

Agreed and I don't think either are entirely right, but the longer he's in office the I have actually seen more of his stickers and the supporters seem to be more vocal but I'm in a very liberal area so any change would seem larger.

I agree Trump has exposed that 34% of America has no empathy , hate filled , rude and crude and narrow thinking souls.

I know good decent people that like Trump, I don't understand it but the people themselves are bigots or crude. It's almost like there is a sort of cognitive break between what they believe and what they want it happen about it.

I believe there is more of a disconnection between what is really a bigot and what is really offensive.

I also think the opinions of conservatives are most often misrepresented in the minds of liberals because the ideology becoming identity politics

I'm glad you realized I meant to say aren't! Oops 😂. I think you are absolutely correct and to some extent there is plenty of identity politics on both sides. Labels and categories make the other side of the argument a thing instead of a human. "Those conservatives..." it's just a mass not a collective of human beings and it helps people associate there negative feelings on that ideology. I do think plenty of bigots exist within the conservative movement but they are far from the majority they are a small fringe as true socialist are a small portion of the left. It's a matter of using extremes of parties to discredit the entire party.
