Trump is now the third most unpopular President ever

Only Junior and His Trickiness stand in his way.

It took years for those guys to sink to their depths, Cheetolini's sinking like a stone right out of the gate.

We're just getting started.

2. interestingly enough, both shrub and tricky dick both had sky-high approval at some point

nixon peaked at 67% and won 49 of 50 states for re-election.

shrub hit 89% shortly after 9/11. which rather suggests that "approval" can be a pretty stupid metric, but that's another story.

13. At which point, we were reminded of our duty as citizens . . .

. . . . and told to go shopping.

Greatest blown opportunity in American political history.

16. which is why i said "approval" can be a silly metric.

"approval" is too vague, imho. in times of national crisis like that, it simply means you respect the office and showing a united front is more important than partisan bickering.

at other times it means you generally approve of the politician's actions, at other times the latest speech, at other times whether you doubt or believe the latest scandalous accusation, etc.

i know political scientists love "approval" ratings because there's a huge amount of data on it, but still, i think it's too vague and shifting in its nature.

20. it's a useful metric, it doesn't mean everyone will vote for, it's just an indicator

of whether the public perception of you is negative or not at that specific moment in time.

14. yes they are pretty fickle

but what makes trumpie truly unique is that he his still in his honeymoon period. All presidents have at least a fairly high rating this early in their presidency.

19. The question asked on 9-12-01

Was "Do you support President Bush?"

It was the day after 9/11. Of course I supported the American president. Did I approve? Have trust, faith, or any reasonable expectations? Hell no!

But it was after 9/11, and, in the media, "support" magically morphed into "approve."

11. Not Even Close

Dubya was a Cheney hand puppet, Nixon had a dark heart but while flawed he was competent.

This clown is in a league by himself.

12. James Buchanan is really hoping he will finally get dislodged

from ten thousand "worst president of all time" lists.

18. Truman was horridly unpopular upon leaving office

and Bush the elder got less than 40 running for reelection.

21. I was going to say, Junior must still have fans.

And Trump has to be sinking fast. Is there any demographic he hasn't managed to enrage, except for his wealthy friends? And if I had to choose among those three on a ballot, Trump would definitely be my very last choice.
