AP-NORC puts the President's approval rating at 36%, down from 38%.

Fox News gave Trump a 43% approval rating, a decrease from 46%.

Gallup shows Trump's approval rating at 41%, down from 42% in late July and 44% in early July.

Monmouth University pegs Trump's approval rating at 40%, down from 41%.

NBC News/Wall Street Journal found Trump had an approval rating of 43% among all adults, a decrease of 2 points from 45% in July among registered voters and 1 point from 44% in their last poll that surveyed all adults in June.



Why is all this such a big deal?

Elite keepers.  Ah, yes.  Strong legs, they.

I will clue you in - directionally they are equally adept.  And with either peg.

Would have been grand to have Carly say, "can I take one left-footed now?" - really leave their mouths agape.  But she is ever so humble.

(sucks she sits for some of the undeserving lot that they trot out on the pitch in international play)

He also knows there are limited number of levers he can pull to change things. It's why he is throwing absolutely everything against the wall -- like a payroll tax cut! (Or maybe not!) And why he puts out tweets like he did on Friday in which he tries to assert control over something on which he has no formal control. It just makes him feel better, more in control of a situation that, in reality, he isn't in control of at all.

If you want to raise cattle, go raise cattle in Texas, and in Nevada, USA, there is no reason to burn down the Amazon for beef. We can still have beef, just buy it from an area where people are not destroying the rain forests. Support American beef, and save the rain forest. Maybe the American ranchers can donate money to declare the Amazon to be an international park and preservation.

Salute,

Tony V.

Yeah - dont the Amazon cows fart too much anyway?

Yeah, those trade talks with China are coming right along. Any minute now...

China slaps new tariffs on US.

Oops.

Sir, as you were asked - please hold all comments til the end

Thanks

Remember when you thought the "end" was nigh? Any day now (then), the negotiations would be over?! You chided us for our skepticism.

And I am so sure that you always waited until the end of any of Obama's negotiations before judging them and him. Yeah, like that ever happened!

No, Kid, people are suffering NOW from what Trump is doing - and not doing.

If it turns out wonderfully well and all those folks are made whole and the economy moves forward without a recession caused in good measure by Trump's trade war, I will be more than happy to admit I was wrong.

You may have noticed, I do that. (Nah, you probably glossed right over it.) You might try it sometime. Your president doesn't! (Biden's not much better! No wonder you like him.)

Yeah, man - 5 bucks more for sneakers.  That's $2.50 for each foot.

Your usual level of compassion and comprehension are on display.

You have no compassion and no comprehension.
