Trump is Still More Popular than the President of France

Mish

This is actually an "approval rating" measure, but it is amusing. Trump has the third worst approval rating with a score of -21.

That's nearly much a tossup. Only Yoshihide Suga is worse.

Trump is leaving office with an approval rating of 29%. Nixon tumbled to 24% when he left. For the United States this is rock bottom at least if you look back at the last 50 years. I'd suggest that those who still approve of Donald Trump are likely to have pro-autocratic viewpoints. How else do you reconcile 29% approva after an insurection that occurrer with the apparent support and encouragement of Donald Trump who tried to circumvent an election to stay in power.

"Congratulations to President Trump for not being dead last."

Hilarious.

Maybe the Trump foundation can plan a fund raising dinner, with an award ceremony for "Not being dead last".

On a serious note, the fact the he's not dead last is symbolic of the levels of disinformation in the U.S.

Whole swaths of the U.S. populace are drowning in their own group-think, confirmation bias and media disinformation, partly from Russian propagandists seeking to divide us, and it's worked incredibly well, good job Putin!

Yea Macron is at 32%. The country isn't happy with his handling of Covid or the economy. But comparing Macron to Trump is not relevant or apple to apples. There's not a chance the French would wish to replace Macron with Trump.. Compaing the popularity of a French and American President is like comparing GDP numbers from different countries.

What is brand approval rating? The vast majority of his supporters cant afford a trip to Maralargo nor his hotels.

Approval rating has nothing to do with popularity. What a flawed assumption.

The election seems to be turning to almost a blessing in disguise for Trump. If the economy tanks, Trump will be vindicated as arguably one of the best presidents America has ever had.

Rutte resigned to save his party at the polls in Netherlands.
Italian Gov collapsing, again.
Macron thought of as next to useless.
Merkel jumping into bed with the Chinese, ignoring human rights abuses - concentration camps & slave labour (guess that's OK in their book).

Makes Trumps America look positively OK.
Don't be so hard on yourselves.

Seriously, accept your differences and mistakes and decide to do stuff differently going forward and it will come OK,better than you expect.

Trump is still very popular with his base. So popular in fact they many Democrat and Republican politicians are hiring extra private security to protect their families from Trump hooligans.

And they keep increasing the numbers of national guard troops for the inauguration: it started with 5000 and is now 25000.

This is America today. Full of hate and guns.

It may be only terminology, but it's very important. The leaders quoted are not Heads of State, they are mostly Heads of Government, with a few who have dual roles (eg Trump). Boris Johnson is not the UK's Head of State, nor is the German Head of State Angela Merkel. etc

The most important takeaway from these polls is the fact that the popularity of "leaders" went up with the onset of pandemic, in many cases reversing trends. This poll is a great study of sociology, and mass psychology.

Trumps base has grown as well as his approval ratings your democrat lies won't help you on the 19th and 20th when the military and fema run your cou try. This is all planned. And the dems don't even know it

Macron won because he wasn't Marine Le Pen. That 'distaste' for voting for her wont be nearly so strong in 2022, and he has a hell of a fight on his hands if he wants to retain office. He doesn't deserve to win again, but I doubt they will allow Le Pen to win. Nor will they want Melanchon.
