Skip to comments.Poll of 10 Trump states has some bad news for Senate Democrats

President Trump's national approval rating is still historically low 39.8 percent in the RealClearPolitics average and 40.2 percent at FiveThirtyEight but "as state-by-state polling of Trump's approval rating shows, the national mood really isn't so national," Nathaniel Rakich notes at FiveThirtyEight. "Voters in different corners of the country differ in how deep their anger runs and at whom it's directed. ... To take control of the Senate, it doesn't much matter how Democrats perform elsewhere if they can't win both Nevada and Arizona and defend red-state Democrats in places like Missouri and Indiana." According to a new poll by Axios and SurveyMonkey, that could be very difficult for Democrats to pull off.
After the last presidential election... We’re supposed to pay attention to polls again?
The same polls that gave Hillary! a big win.
Rasmussen has Trump higher than Obama was at this point into their term.
That poll has the Democrats running against a generic Republican candidate in most cases. Put a name to the candidate and we’ll see what happens. When Nelson was polled against a generic Republican in Florida it was a close race. Put Scotts face on the poll and suddenly Nelson is up by 10.
Interesting that they site 2 left leaning polling sources indicating Dems are not doing as well as the fake media tells us they are doing.
This is why trying to use special elections to forecast general election turn out models is stupid. The party out of power always has an enthusiasm edge so they are more likely to turn our for special elections.
Hahaha. MAGA! Unstoppable MAGA! Vote in every election. Vote OUT the LIBs/DIMs. Crush them.
Some people live and die by polls, weather forecasts or market predictions. IMO, they all have the same thing in common with climate change predictions or MSM fact checking.
I still have “zero” confidence in any org that calls themselves “Survey Monkey”.
Still, you look at what the Dems have to defend and it is hard to picture them gaining seats. You can three gazillion illegals dissing Trump in California and New York but that’s still only four Senate seats.
No. The DC/NY clampdown fake-news axis wishes we still would, but no.
Agree there is a LOOOOONG way to go till November and in razor thin districts and states the winds can change direction quickly. But looking from a strategic point the Dems in the Senate described here in the editorial have a tough task in gaining control.... Can we finally take W.V. and Missouri?
Saw Scott welcome a conference to Orlando several years ago and he no more knew what the group/conference was about than the man in the moon. He’s no great shakes in the brains department and Nelson is no better, IMO. FL deserves better than either one of those.
Matt Gaetz should run.
The poll next Tuesday in SW Pennsylvania is for real and should be taken seriously.
These Democrat polls have an agenda. These polls are used to create panic among Democrats so they give more money and “volunteers” to the cause.
They know it is all about turnout. The money buys volunteers and he volunteers execute the ground game that creates the turnout.
The purpose of Democrat polls is to prevent complacency among Democrats.
The Week itself is left leaning, subscribed to by dem wife.
I was the 38th to vote in my precinct; at that time, there had been two (2) democrap votes...
Heck, our Texas governor pointed out that Ted Cruz got more votes than the entire Statewide democrap turnout!
I sure hope Claire McCaskill goes bye-bye.
Judging by the Missouri GOP’s penchant for selecting candidates with self-inflicted wounds like Todd Akin and Eric Greitens I have my doubts.
Legit polls put President Trump at 48 to 52% approval rating.
