Is He Losing His MOJO?

A new poll from NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll has President Trump slipping in his approval numbers from last month with a new wrinkle added. He is losing support from his base. According to NPR

A new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds Trump’s approval rating down and his disapproval rating up from a month ago. He currently stands at 39 percent approve, 53 percent disapprove — a 7-point net change from December when his rating was 42 percent approve, 49 percent disapprove.

Down significantly among suburban men, a net-positive approval rating of 51-to-39 percent to a net-negative of 42 percent approve, 48 percent disapprove. That’s a net change of down 18 percentage points.

Down a net of 13 points among white evangelicals, from 73-to-17 percent approve to 66-to-23 percent approve.

Down a net of 10 points among Republicans, from 90-to-7 percent approve to 83-to-10 percent.
Down marginally among white men without a college degree, from 56-to-34 percent approve to 50-to-35 percent approve, a net change downward of 7 points.

Not the way to kick off the New Year for POTUS 45.

Now, I know people that are SUPER PRO TRUMP will immediately believe that this is some sort of #fakenews operation but you do need to look at these things for clues.

Why would Trump have lost support among his base? I can’t believe that the people who have overlooked a lot of other issues with Trump would be dismayed by the government shutdown. Is the economy starting to slow down in the rest of the country? Government data always lags a few months behind what is actually happening on the ground.

The trade standoff with China has affected their economy and is bound to affect ours at some point. The United States is the driver of the global economy and when others in the car get sick eventually so does the person leading the pack.

These are numbers that you need to take a serious look at and see if it makes sense. Donald Trump won an impressive victory in the electoral college due to sneaking up on the Dems in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

He is now President and won’t be sneaking up on anybody in 2020.
