Half of Americans Approve of Trump's Handling of North Korea

Source: Reuters

In a joint declaration following their meeting in Singapore on Tuesday, the North Korean leader pledged to move toward complete denuclearization and Trump vowed to guarantee the security of the United States’ old foe. Forty percent of those polled said they did not believe the countries would stick to their commitments.

Another 26 percent said they believed the United States and North Korea would meet their commitments, while 34 percent said they did not know whether they would follow through.

Thirty-nine percent believe the summit has lowered the threat of nuclear war between the United States and nuclear-armed North Korea, slightly more than the 37 percent who said they did not believe it changed anything.

Trump received a 51 percent approval rating for his handling of North Korea and also led the list of leaders who should take the most credit for the summit and the joint pledge. Forty percent say the former reality television star should take the most credit, followed by South Korean President Moon Jae-in

2. Half of the fools will be disillusioned soon enough.

Hopefully Mueller will be able to show the financial ties between Trump and Kim, before November.

3. Ask them again on Saturday after the next 60 or so hour Shit Show...

featuring the arrest of Michael Cohen and the (hopefully) imprisonment of Paul Manafort. Not to mention the Rosenstein show down and the release of the internal FBI Clinton email report.

5. I agree with that

but it would be nice, if they aren't paying attention, that they don't answer questions like this. Just don't pretend to know what's really going on. This sort of stuff only validates and normalizes Trump. I also blame the MSM for how they've been hyping this meeting and catapulting Trump's propaganda.

I guess its good OTOH that it's a fairly even split and most Americans don't really think it's going to go anywhere ultimately.
