Poll || Sixty Percent Oppose Trump Arpaio Pardon

Sixty percent of Americans oppose President Trump’s decision to pardon Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, while only 34 percent support it, according to a new NBC News poll.

Now, I know, consider the source. But the poll also gives Trump a 36 percent approval rating, which is just a couple of points below the average of polls. So I think this probably does suggest most people do not approve of the pardon.

The poll also finds that just 31 percent have a favorable opinion of Hosue Speaker Paul Ryan, while only 30 percent like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Two Thirds of Americans Don’t Believe Trump Will Build the Wall

Sixty seven percent of Americans believe President Trump will not keep his promise to build a wall with Mexico to keep out illegal entrants, but a majority, 53 percent, think he will deport millions of illegal immigrants, according to a new Bloomberg poll.

The poll also finds that 54 percent think Trump will keep his promise to create more-favorable trade deals for the United States and that 66 percent believe he will make significant cuts to government. But only 43 percent think he can revive the coal industry, and just 47 percent believe he can get tax reform through Congress.

The wall with Mexico was perhaps Trumps most high-profile campaign promise. That only 30 percent think he will build it perhaps suggests some forgiveness in 2020 if he doesn’t.

The poll gives Trump only a 40 percent general approval rating.

New Poll Shows Vast Support for Trump Travel Ban

Well, this certainly contradicts the normal media narrative.

A new poll by Politico indicates that American are not ready become a vast sanctuary city for refuguees from countries where terrorists abound.

According to Politico:

After months of litigation and controversy, six-in-10 voters back the ban — and the survey suggests the actual policy may be more popular when separated from the president.

Asked whether they support or oppose the State Department’s “new guidelines which say visa applicants from six predominately Muslim countries must prove a close family relationship with a U.S. resident in order to enter the country,” 60 percent of voters say they support the guidelines, and only 28 percent oppose them.

The POLITICO/Morning Consult question doesn’t mention Trump, nor does it refer to the president’s executive orders on immigration. That contrasts with other polls, which mostly show greater opposition to the policy.

Eighty-four percent of GOP voters support the ban, while only 9 percent oppose it. But the policy is also popular among independent voters: 56 percent support it, compared to 30 percent who oppose it. Democrats tilt slightly against the ban, with 41 percent supporting it, and 46 percent in opposition.

Democrats are split on this? Since when did some Democrats embrace sanity at the expense of political correctness?

GOP Insiders: Polls Don’t Capture Trump’s Support

More than seven-in-10 GOP insiders in battleground states say the polls understate Donald Trump’s support because voters don’t want to admit to pollsters that they support him, according to Politico. Politico is not going to be talking mainly to pro-Trump enthusiasts. It would be surveying seasoned Republican operatives with knowledge of their states. Lots of… Continue Reading

Trump Ahead of Cruz in Indiana

The first statewide poll of the presidential primaries in Indiana gives Trump an edge over Ted Cruz. Indiana is a crucial state because it is one of the few major states remaining where Cruz can snatch significant numbers of delegates from Trump. According to WTHR: The WTHR/HPI Indiana Poll has Trump with a 6-point lead… Continue Reading

Trump Backers: If Donald Loses, Bolt the GOP

Sixty three percent of Donald Trump’s GOP supporters say that if he earns the most delegates in the primaries but fails to secure the Republican nomination in Cleveland, he should run as an independent or a third-party candidate, according to a newly released CBS poll. Among all Republicans, a third think he should run on his… Continue Reading

New Poll: Bush at Four Percent

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush scored just 4 percent of the vote in the latest national GOP survey, a catastrophically low number that is sure to raise grave concern among the establishment donors who have invested millions in his success for the 2016 presidential race. The poll, released Friday by the Pew Research Center, shows Bush slipping… Continue Reading

Poll: Trump Scores Twice as Much Support as Bush

Well, so much for the predictions by the Washington cognoscenti that Donald Trump’s comments about John McCain not being a hero – a flip aside which he basically corrected a few sentences later, BTW – would destroy his campaign. What the prognosticators didn’t understand is that McCain is deeply unpopular among conservatives, even if his… Continue Reading

Bush Tops Obama in Poll

No, not that Bush. The other one. A new CNN poll finds that 52 percent of adults have a favorable view of George W. Bush, compared to 43 percent who see him unfavorably, a shift from previous polls that have shown Bush’s post-presidential approval well south of 50 percent. Bush’s positives are a bit ahead of… Continue Reading
