Trump’s poll numbers sink into death spiral on the one-year anniversary of his campaign’s start

Published

on

It’s been one year since Donald Trump took that fateful ride down the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for President of the United States — and his poll numbers are absolutely tanking despite the fact that he’s seemingly locked down the Republican nomination for the presidency.

Here is a chart from Real Clear Politics that shows what’s happened to Trump’s polling averages ever since he got a brief boost after clinching his status as the presumptive Republican nominee:

What’s particularly devastating about this from Trump’s perspective is that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton hasn’t gained all that much in the past three weeks — instead, it’s mostly been about Trump spiraling downward.

How bad are Trump’s poll numbers right now? This bad: None of the last seven polls released have him even cracking the 40% support barrier. In fact, the last poll that had him at 40% or higher was an Economist/YouGov poll that came out on June 5th — and even then, Trump only garnered 41% of the vote.

Another thing to consider is that Hillary Clinton’s top rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders, hasn’t even conceded or endorsed her yet. If he does that at the Democratic National Convention in July, that might give her a further boost over Trump in the polls.

"What about Roger Stone, does he look like he’s about to burn here?" MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews asked. "Does he look like he’s going down?"

"He does," Dilanian replied.

"And also, physically, he doesn't look well at this trial. He’s walking around the courthouse kind of unaccompanied, shambling around," he continued. "He doesn't look like a happy warrior, which is usually his persona."

Published

on

On Thursday, Bloomberg News reported that President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is under federal criminal investigation, according to multiple officials — and that this investigation "presents a threat to Trump's presidency."

Giuliani, who was a central figure in the apparent scheme to extort Ukraine into a politically-motivate investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden's family, could potentially be facing charges under campaign finance law, and for failure to register as a foreign agent.
