...lowest in a year.

Trump’s net approval rating on his handling of the economy shrank to +7 points (46% approve; 39% disapprove). That’s down from +10 points in August (46%-36%) and +15 points in July (48%-33%). Over the same time, views of Trump’s handling of trade with China have gone from neutral to increasingly negative. Trump’s net approval went from flat in July (42%-42%) to -4 points in August (40% approval; 44% disapproval) to -10 points in September (39%-49%).

For all his bluster and insults, Trump has taken on a somewhat feeble quality. He makes the bare-minimum statement on the latest gun massacre, ducks a World War II commemoration in Poland on the grounds that he has to monitor the hurricane (but then plays golf and misinforms the public about the hurricane’s path) and eggs Vice President Pence to stay at the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel in Ireland, raising once more the grotesque self-dealing and corruption that permeates this administration.

But the best part is this:

Meanwhile, in the same poll, former vice president Joe Biden leads Trump in a general election match-up 54 percent to 42 percent.



Has it finally happened? One can only hope...

We know that 45 isn't the problem, it's that 42% number

I think that hits the nail on the head. I've never understood why Trump pulled more than 50% of the white female vote, nor why evangelicals went against every moral principal they rage against.

This article is about how British women seem to have come to terms with what would seem like irreconcilable differences may go a way to answering the question of who those 42% really are.

The locale where I grew into adulthood was saturated with deep rooted prejudices. Despite efforts to raise awareness and empathy for and about others, it (the area) stills harbors deep and abiding distrust of others.

It's a nationwide affliction that has a hold on that 42%, it's prejudice, plain and simple.

Trump will never carry that particular state but he'll still get that (in this case) 35 or so %.

It’s always the other and this isn’t going away. Too bad one party on our side of the pond wins by exploiting prejudice decade after decade. And all the many emotional wedgies.
