His first days as president has been a disaster. Inauguration crowds, illegal voting, Obama Wiretapping, Russia, Travel Restrictions and Ryan care. His supporters are growing restless. His budget isn’t well received and his distractions (tweets) are less effective.
While the scathing editorials from the big cites like Today’s, Los Angeles Times bruise his ego. His heart is in the Ohio Valley, Appalachia, in cities like Louisville and Tampa, Casper,Wyoming and the northern red states. His supporters in these states continue to trust him, they say give him time, they continue to trust his business acumen even though some of the changes in his proposed budget effect them negatively.
The cracks grow daily, the majority of his supporters want him to stop tweeting. While the majority continue to believe the left is behind the Russia controversy, some of his supporters support an inquiry .
His continued low approval ratings has reduced his power in Congress. He administration is fragmented, and is under attack.
Earlier Today, 45 time told the Financial Times said he would be willing to go it alone to restrain North Korea’s nuclear weapons program should China fail to change the situation, saying if Beijing won’t help solve it, then “we will” alone.
From Gallup: September 18, 2001
In the wake of the terrorist attacks, American approval of the way President George W. Bush is handling his job has surged to 86%, the fourth highest approval rating ever measured by Gallup in the six decades it has been asking Americans to make that evaluation. Only Presidents George H.W. Bush and Harry Truman received higher ratings — the elder Bush twice during the Gulf War, with 89% (the highest ever) and 87% ratings, and Truman with 87% just after the Germans surrendered in World War II.
The latest Gallup poll before the terrorist attack found that 51% of Americans approved of Bush’s job performance. The 35-point jump in this rating is the highest ever measured by Gallup. The second highest short-term surge, termed a “rally-around-the-flag” (or “rally”) effect, was measured for the first President Bush right after the start of the Gulf War. His approval rating jumped 18 points, from 64% before the attack against Iraq was launched to 82% right afterward. For the next month, his rating stabilized, but surged to 89% at the end of the “Desert Storm” operation.
