President Donald Trump may be lashing out at purportedly “fake” polls showing that he is a historically unpopular president, but even a Republican-aligned pollster says Trump’s approval is “dangerously low” heading into next year’s midterms.

Axios reports that new polling from GOP public-affairs firm Firehouse Strategies shows that Trump’s support has dropped across the board, including among the Republican voters who make up his base.

“Our data shows Trump losing support inside the Republican Party and a noticeable drop in his perceived honesty,” Firehouse Strategies’ Alex Conant explains to Axios. “Just 6 months in office, Trump is getting into dangerously low territory in key swing states. Trump’s base of support has shrunk from 35.3 percent of voters who have a ‘strongly favorable’ view of him in April to only 28.6 percent.”

Additionally, Firehouse’s data reveals that 28 percent of Republican voters now have a strongly unfavorable view of Trump, up from 21 percent earlier this year.

New revelations about Trump’s low poll numbers come as rumors have started swirling that Vice President Mike Pence is running a “shadow campaign” for president in 2020 in the event Trump is removed from office before then.

After all, Trump is a sociopathic narcissist with the emotional control of a — well, I won't insult toddlers with the comparison — and he lives in mortal terror of being viewed as a loser. He's already made clear that he will refuses to concede, no matter what, and he's grasping desperately for any way to get legal ballots thrown out so he can steal the election.

Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.

"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.

"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."
