    - 68% want Trump out of politics
    - 75% say he has at least some responsibility for the Capitol Hill violence

    If there is violence on Inauguration Day, Trump's ratings may decline even more. The odds of a Senate conviction will go up.

      This is pure wishful thinking.

      "Biden approval jumps to 64%; Trump plunges to 29%"

      And he has not done anything as of yet, not even in the job yet...  Makes one really wonder about polls or maybe about many American's thought processes. Interesting

        I don't know why you all think this Trump fellow is so wonderful that so many of you would defend him even from the depths of hell?

        Our thought process are fine Sharlee, the outcome of all this could have been reasonably and logically anticipated ahead of time. After the Coronavirus pandemic, Trump's alleged tepid response and the nose dive of the economy, he became vulnerable in a way he did not before. I am sure that if it wasn't for that, he probably would have won reelection, to my dismay.

          Simple opinion responding to the poll posted in this thread. Just a thought.  Not sure what people are going on to give him such high praise.  Not pointing to finger at any one person or persons. 

          I was making a deduction about polls, and what seems to be human nature.

          I had hoped some here would realize by now, I am pretty straight up, no dog whistles.  I was careful, not to point out anyone or any group. Just critiquing a poll.   I mean do we have any idea what Biden will do or won't do to assign him an approval rating?

          I would like to get to know Biden a bit before I take an approval poll. Just saying.

            Let's see....he is assembling a diverse cabinet of highly qualified individuals, he has assembled a science team and created a cabinet-level science posituon, he has developed a plan to speed the dissemination of the COVID-19 vaccine, he has shown maturity and restraint around the Capitol insurrection attempt, and he has behaved like an adult in the face of the current administration's shenanigans, which range from remarkably childish to maliciously dangerous.

            So far, I approve.

              Last I heard none of his cabinets had been confirmed. The majority were laid off by Obama and now called off lay-off. Not sure what he will do no the vaccine, hopefully, he does do well. I am not ever impressed by politicians that make promises, I like the ones that do what they said they would do. Get back to on this one in a year or two. Don't ever like to predict or back "if comes".

              Not going to bash him or give him accolades for "if comes".  So far looks like he can read a monitor, and say what's been written.  I will give him some time.

              I approve as well, Panther.

              He is showing me that he does not intend to be a mere GOP light lapdog. I am most pleased.

            Most new presidents start out with stellar performance ratings, much because of anticipated change in course.

            Trump and his troubles are naturally going to depress his ratings.

              Yes, I think you may be right about most presidents starting out with good polls. As a rule American's rally around the president they voted for.

              Obama started out of the gate in the high 60's
              Barack Obama Job Approval Rating Summary
              % Approve
              2009-2017 term average    48
              First-term average    49
              Second-term average    47
              High point    69
              Poll date    2009: Jan 22-24
              Low point    38
              Poll dates    2011 Aug -- 3 polls; 2011 Oct -- 2 polls; 2014 Sep -- 2 polls

              No need to compare Trump versus Obama polls am well aware of the fact  Trump's polls were not great coming in and very bad going out.

    Umm, kind of hard to believe; without factoring in biased questions by pollsters, manipulation of data and heavy partisan spin.

    The guy has done nothing yet.

    I always viewed Trumpism as a psychological, rather than a political phenomenon, characterized by a politically induced mass hypnosis. The subjects were mostly folks in a need of an inner strong guide to fight their own inner soft human side -- which got exteriorized and projected in political arena where they saw one "macho"-leader fighting the soft, human nature of Democrat policies.
    And I am not criticizing, mocking, or otherwise putting down any of it -- just diagnosing. If any of you find it offensive, then don't forget to also resent your doctor's telling you that your blood pressure is a little high, and your sympathetic nervous system somewhat hyperactive.-- should that be a case.

    It's been said that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" -- and yet -- some intentions don't sound at the very start as if they are doomed in advance to end up with that proverbial hell.
    I shamelessly admit, I almost liked something about Trump, all until he said that Mexico was going to pay for his wall. In what insane universe could that have happened? And he totally lost me when he separated those parents from kids. All politics aside, that was inhuman.
    As for ratings, running a country is a terribly complex job, and with all good intentions so much stays unpredictable. Like the whimsical stock market, favorable-or-not global economy, and the nature of resistance from the opposition party which may thwart the best of intentions -- just to make themselves more popular, not for the ultimate benefit of the nation.
    What I am saying is that it's not always solely up to a candidate how his or her promises turn out.
    But, so far, this dude looks at least pretty collected and free of tantrums -- which of itself is promising, because decisions in life shouldn't be generated by nerves, rather by a sober mind. And listening to those around, instead of firing them has its own virtue.
