Trump's poll result?

I just got this from CNN via email:

Quote:
Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have earned the ire of most Americans, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with nearly seven in 10 (68%) judging the Republican Congress a failure.

Approval of the current Republican leaders in Congress has dropped from 39% in January to just 24% now. President Trump gets the approval of 38% of Americans in the poll.

Only one in three Americans (34%) say they approve of Democratic leaders in Congress, while six in 10 (59%) disapprove.

Congress left for its August recess without passing any sweeping, comprehensive legislation, failing in its attempt to pass something on health care and leaving tax reform on the docket. A vote on the debt ceiling looms this fall.

Separately, a CNN poll found that 70% of Americans feel the President's finances are fair game in a probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 US elections. The poll was conducted in the wake of news that federal investigators are looking into whether Trump and his associates have financial ties to Russia.

As I have confessed before, I recently opened a twitter account just to get a morning laugh. The only person I follow is "@realDonaldTriump".

So this morning he tweeted some poll showed him with 60+% approval and Obama at 40-% approval in terms of job done as president. And he declared that to be good.

That tweet is now gone. Hmmm. I wonder why?
Thanks from Clara007

Somebody in the Trump team with some sense, someone who DJT will listen to, said to DJT, "Damn, that's fake news ... er ... sir."

Tillerson? I don't like the guy much, but he's the team member closest to reality

I think Kelly is a good influence on him too.

What is funny about this is this is about the same poll numbers he had when he beat Hillary like a 5 dollar mule.

I thought the same thing. I really did. That is was when people were actually engaged about the election.

Maybe it was Jeff Sessions?

However, comparing nationwide polls to US presidential election results is the same as...well...comparing apples to oranges, since they utilize different methodologies.

[Welcome back, by the way. ]
