Trump's favorability and perceptions of COVID-19 response stagnate post-convention: POLL

Source: ABC News

President Donald Trump's efforts to build his appeal and define his opponent at the Republican National Convention, using pageantry and the White House as the backdrop, had little apparent impact on the electorate's impressions of both him and former Vice President Joe Biden, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds.

Trump's week of celebration did not improve his favorability, even among his own base, and the country still remains widely critical of his handling of the major crisis of his presidency: COVID-19.

Less than one-third (31%) of the country has a favorable view of the president in the days after he accepted the Republican nomination for the second time -- a stagnant reality for Trump. His favorability rating stood at 32% in the last poll, taken a week earlier, right after the Democratic National Convention.

...snip...

In the new survey, which was conducted using Ipsos' KnowledgePanel, Biden's favorability remains higher than his unfavorability, 46% to 40%, solidifying his improvement in favorability from last week, when attitudes about the Democratic nominee improved to a net positive from his slightly underwater position prior to the convention.

6. According to a colleague of my late father ... a political scientist @ Ohio State Trump has ...

... a 25% base that will almost never leave him*. These are people who like that he is an
asshole, use the n****r word, and don't believe in science. But Trump is now getting down
to that 25% figure.


* Some that base might still leave Trump if they, a member of their family, or a friend get
sick and or die from c-19. No football is going to really hurt Trump too.

10. I've Been Saying 30%...

...for quite some time now.
I think his approval floor is 30. Your dad's colleague says 25. Not that much different!
Given this person's credential, I'll take that as affirmation! Thanks!

15. In some areas that 25% is 80% of the local population

See S.E. Ohio, KY, W.V., Tennessee, rural PA, Oklahoma, and so on.
Racism, anti-intellecutalism, and being spoon fed hate by TV, hate
talk radio, and social media runs deep.

2. Everyone in the country knows who he is and what he's about..

Their Klan meeting simply went down that same old worn path...fear, hate and bullshit. Nothing new. No pivot anywhere. That appeals to only roughly ~30%, comprising the worst of us. The rest aren't falling for it anymore. The Biden / Harris bump is driven by the introduction of a sane, decent alternative to those who may not be familiar with them. An alternative the many have hoped for since "give him a chance" devolved to "this guy is fucking crazy" in early 2017.

12. Seems about right!

And no telling how the sociopath might decide to "punish us" if he loses.

I hope the military brass keeps a close eye on that fucker!

5. 538 (post conventions)

Only 1 outlier in Mi (Likely Voters from tRafalgaR gRoup with a C- rating).

No complacency allowed & Biden/Harris must destroy tRump/pence (who want to cut SS to zero) in debates.

14. GOP approval dropped because they showcased African-Americans and Latinos at RNC

Basically, Trump nuts are racists. They cannot stand even the decorative pieces in their convention. (Hershel Walker and the rest)
