Trump’s favorite pollster finds many of his own voters don’t want him campaigning in their district

Published

on

Rasmussen Reports, the Republican-friendly pollster that is frequently cited by President Donald Trump, has found that a plurality of voters think Trump would hurt local candidates by campaigning for them in their districts.

According to the pollster, 40 percent of likely voters think Trump campaigning in their district would hurt the candidate he’s trying to help, while just 28 percent said it would help the candidate. 21 percent of likely voters, meanwhile, said his presence in their districts would have no impact.

Although Rasmussen does not break down these numbers by party affiliation for non-subscribers, it does say that while “most Republicans plan to vote for a member of Congress who supports President Trump’s agenda… they have reservations when it comes to the president joining candidates on the campaign trail.”

Earlier this month, Trump campaigned for Republican Rick Saccone, a congressional candidate in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district. Despite the fact that Trump had won the district by 20 points in 2016, his presence was not enough to drag Saccone over the finish line, as he narrowly lost the race to Democratic challenger Conor Lamb.

According to FiveThirtyEight, Trump’s current average approval rating stands at 40.8 percent, while Democrats have an average lead of over nine points on the congressional ballot.

Trump’s capitulation cheered on Russian TV: Ambassador McFaul says ‘they are joyous in Moscow’

Published

on

America's former ambassador to Russia explained how their state media is celebrating President Donald Trump's capitulation in Ukraine and Syria.

Ambassador Michael McFaul was interviewed Wednesday by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.

"How do you think this should play out, now that they are assembling step-by-step insider accounts with people who are bravely stepping forward, some giving up their careers, Mike McKinley and others having had to quit over this," Mitchell noted. "How do you think this plays out legally or in terms of the politics of impeachment?"

"Well, legally, I’ll defer to others who are more expert. I think what it does underscore is how grossly inept and just broken down the Trump foreign policymaking process is," McFaul replied.
