Poll: Trump would beat Clinton again

Different poll slants from the US, none of which mean much.

New News/WaPo poll: 56% say Trump has accomplished either not much or nothing in his first 100 days in office

Washington Examiner saw something different of interest: Wash Post poll hides: Trump still beats Clinton, 43%-40%

A new Washington Post poll that declares President Trump as “the least popular president in modern times,” waits until the second to last paragraph to reveal another tidbit: He’d still beat Hillary Rodham Clinton if the election were held today and in the popular vote, not just Electoral College.

It probably wasn’t prominent because it isn’t very important.


Clinton is failed political history so it’s not surprising to see her support waning. It’s more notable that Trump’s support is staying low even though he is now president and getting a lot of attention.

Also unchanged: His base still likes him.

That’s not surprising, he had strong support from his base and hasn’t done much that would lose that support. He hasn’t done much to gain support from people who doubted his abilities either.

The poll found that Trump’s polls continue to be upside down, with a 42 percent approval and 53 percent disapproval.

That’s similar to most other polls. Trump’s approval was diving until his missile strike in Syria and big bomb drop in Afghanistan, after which it recovered a little but that doesn’t seem to have been sustained.


Trump still has a lot to prove – that he can get things done as promised, and that he won’t stuff up the world and provoke Armageddon.

Support may drop off if he keeps failing to deliver on his tough talk and campaign promises, like this winding back the rhetoric.

    If I lived next door I’d drop over some tissues but In don’t so suck it up. Trump is not flash but he’s better than Clinton.

    What will make Trumpy a great president and eventually gain him more support? One word-
    ‘decisiveness. ‘ Couple that to the art ‘doing’ and we need nothing more. If Trumpy brings on
    Armageddon, so be it. I would rather die standing up than on my knees thinking…if only we tried this or that.

    The Alt Right supported Trump with reservations, he was a step in the right direction.

    Not so happy with him now:

    “Donald Trump does not understand that he was elected because of White racial consciousness in the United States that increased under the mulatto presidency. He only understands what his Jewish in-laws and advisors tell him about the world, otherwise he would end the mulatto’s executive order to make America less Aryan and start deporting these colonizers.

    The only positive policy Trump could possibly achieve at this point, having already broken promises on war and illegal immigration, would be the construction of a border wall. The border wall would do nothing to stop the ongoing de-Aryanization of the United States, only partially prevent it from being done illegally via an overland route any further. He may not even give his supporters this token gesture.

    Elected Republicans have shown they will do nothing to maintain Aryan hegemony in the United States. Even though it is a prerequisite for their politics since White Americans are mostly Republicans while non-whites are mostly Democrats.
