Polls Spell Trouble For President Donald Trump 89 Days Into Presidency | Morning Joe | MSNBC


SAW.
YOU WOULD THINK THAT WOULD GIVE HIM A COUPLE POINTS HERE AND
THERE. BUT AS MIKA IS ABOUT TO SHOW US,
HE’S FLAT. >>NEW POLLING FROM GALLUP HAS
THE PRESIDENT’S APPROVAL RATING AT 40%, ESSENTIALLY THE SAME AS
FEBRUARY. HIS NUMBERS ARE SINKING ON KEY
CHARACTERISTICS. 45% THINK THE PRESIDENT KEEPS
HIS PROMISES. THAT’S DOWN 17 POINTS IN TWO
MONTHS. 52% SAY HE’S A STRONG AND
DECISIVE LEADER, A DROP OF SEVEN.
46% SAY HE CAN BRING ABOUT THE CHANGES THE COUNTRY NEEDS, DOWN
SEVEN POINTS. JUST 36% SAY HE’S HONEST AND
TRUSTWORTHY, DOWN SIX POINTS. 42% SAY HE CARES ABOUT PEOPLE
LIKE YOU, DOWN FOUR. AND 41% BELIEVE HE CAN MANAGE
THE GOVERNMENT EFFECTIVELY. AT THE SAME TIME, A PEW RESEARCH
POLL FINDS THE PRESIDENT’S JOB APPROVAL HOVERING AROUND 39%,
WELL BELOW THE POPULARITY OF HIS PREDECESSORS AT SIMILAR POINTS
IN THEIR PRESIDENCY. >>OBAMA WAS AT 61, BUSH 55,
CLINTON 49, BUSH 56, REAGAN 67. >>HE HAD A RATING OF —
APPROVAL RATING OF 39%, RELATIVELY LOW DISAPPROVAL
NUMBER COMPARED TO TRUMP, 54%, TALKING ABOUT PRESIDENT CLINTON.
>>LET’S TALK ABOUT THESE NUMBERS, MARK HALPERIN, YOUR
MARIS POLL THAT YOU SO ABLY RAN HAD DONALD TRUMP AT 39%.
I WAS SKEPTICAL OF THAT POLL TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.
I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO — I THOUGHT AFTER THINGS SHOOK OUT
HE WOULD BE AROUND 32, 33, 34%. BUT THAT’S JUST DEAD ON WITH PEW
AND GALLUP AND THESE OTHER POLLS.
>>THE POLLING IS PRETTY CONSISTENT.
JUST UNDER 40 OR JUST AT 40. AS MIKA JUST SHOWED, THAT’S
WORSE THAN OTHER PRESIDENTS AT THIS POINT.
YOU THINK HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A BOUNCE.
I THINK THE LACK OF CHANGE IN WASHINGTON, LACK OF PROGRESS IN
WASHINGTON IS WHAT’S HOLDING HIS APPROVAL RATING DOWN.
PEOPLE LOOKED AT HIS STYLE DURING THE CAMPAIGN AND A LOT OF
AMERICANS SAID THAT’S AN UNORTHODOX STYLE —
>>HE’LL GET IT DONE AND HE SAID HEALTH CARE WOULD BE EASY, MIKE.
HE FAILED ON HEALTH CARE. THE TAX CODE IS BOGGING DOWN
NOW. >>THE MUSLIM BAN.
>>THE FAILING “NEW YORK TIMES,” SUBSCRIPTION IS WAY UP SINCE
DONALD TRUMP WAS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SAY HE’S NOW
THE TAX CODE. HE’S STUMBLING ON TAX REFORM.
YOU’RE RIGHT, THE TRAVEL BAN. >>DIDN’T GET IT DONE.
>>HELD UP IN THE COURTS. >>TWO THINGS.
MARK JUST POINTED OUT ONE OF THE THINGS.
THE LEVEL OF EXPECTATION AMONG VOTERS ON BOTH SIDES IS, OKAY,
FINE, HE’LL GET SOMETHING DONE, SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN.
NOTHING REALLY HAS HAPPENED. THE OTHER THING I FEEL IS HARDER
TO GET TO, AND YOU PICK IT UP ANECDOTALLY, AND IT’S ALMOST A
COSMETIC ISSUE. PEOPLE ARE SORT OF DISAPPOINTED
THAT HE’S NOT ACTING MORE LIKE A PRESIDENT —
>>SO YOU REMEMBER ONE MONTH IN, I CAME HERE AND SAID I CALLED 14
OF MY FRIENDS IN FLORIDA THAT SUPPORTED HIM.
EVERY ONE OF THEM, EXCEPT ONE, STILL SUPPORTED HIM, IT’S GREAT
WHAT HE’S DOING WITH THE PRESS, IT’S GREAT, STICKING IT TO
EVERYBODY, RIGHT? >>THEY’RE FROM THE PART OF
FLORIDA THAT CAME THROUGH FOR TRUMP.
>>THAT’S NOT WHAT THEY’RE SAYING NOW.
A LOT OF THEM ARE TELLING ME I’M JUST NOT WATCHING ANYMORE.
>>SICK OF THE TWEETS. >>THIS IS INTERESTING.
THEY TUNED HIM OUT. I’M NOT WATCHING.
THIS IS SOMETHING HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND.
I’LL SAY IT FLAT OUT, HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND.
EVERY PRESIDENT HAS A SELL-BY DATE.
I REMEMBER BEING SHOCKED THAT SIX YEARS IN IN 1986 RONALD
REAGAN WAS GIVING A PITCH ON GETTING RELIEF, ON GIVING AID TO
EL SALVADOR REBELS. HE WOULD HAVE SOLD THAT IN A
SECOND IN 1981. BY ’86 PEOPLE WERE TUNING HIM
OUT.
THEY ALL HAVE A SELL-BY DATE. BARACK OBAMA’S MAY HAVE BEEN
FIVE OR SIX YEARS IN. HIS SPEECH WASN’T THE SAME AS IN
2009. DONALD TRUMP, BY GIVING SO MUCH
AND TWEETING SO MUCH AND BEING SO MA NYE CAL ABOUT BEING IN THE
PRESS EVERY SECOND HAS ALREADY BURNED OUT SOME SUPPORTERS.
>>IT’S PUT SOME LIGHT ON A LOT OF BAD THINGS — THINGS THAT
HAVEN’T GONE WELL. PUT THE LIGHTS ON FOR EVERYONE
TO SEE, AND I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY DAYS INTO THE PRESIDENCY —
>>WHAT YOU PICK UP IS HE HAS ACCELERATED THE PACE OF
EXHAUSTION AMONG PEOPLE. >>I ALSO THINK THEY’RE LOOKING
AT NOTHING GETTING DONE. >>I’D LOVE TO SEE EVERYONE
MEASURE IT, BUT WE ALL THINK THIS IS THE MOST INTENSE 90 DAYS
THAT WE’VE SEEN. PEOPLE WANT RESULTS.
IF HE GETS RESULTS, HE CAN GET SOME OF THESE PEOPLE BACK.
90 DAYS OF EXHAUSTING PEOPLE AND HAVING A SUPREME COURT
NOMINATION TO SHOW FOR IT. >>THE NUMBER ON KEEPS PROMISES
TELLS THE WHOLE STORY. IN FEBRUARY, 52% SAY HE KEEPS
HIS PROMISE, NOW ONLY 45%. BACK IN FEBRUARY, WE WERE
TALKING ABOUT THE TRAVEL BAN, HEALTH CARE, WE SAID YOU CAN BE
ANGRY, BUT YOU CAN’T BE SHOCKED BECAUSE THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HE
TALKED ABOUT DURING THE CAMPAIGN.
NOW HE DIDN’T DO ANY OF THOSE THINGS.
THOSE THINGS DIDN’T MAKE IT THROUGH.
NOW HE’S CHANGED HIS TONE A LITTLE ON CHINA, SOMETHING HIS
SUPPORTERS LOVE. I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE
THINKING RIGHT NOW ALL THOSE BIG, BOLD PROMISES, WE THOUGHT
HE WOULD BE THE GUY TO COME AND CHANGE WASHINGTON AND HE HASN’T
DONE IT. >>MIKA, ALL THE THINGS AROUND
THIS TABLE WE WARNED HIM ABOUT IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER,
THEY’RE ALL ON TAPE, AND ALL IN THE TRANSCRIPT.
THIS IS NOT MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACKING.
WE WARNED HIM EVERY DAY, DON’T PICK FIGHTS WITH THE INTEL
COMMUNITY, DON’T PICK UNNECESSARY FIGHTS WITH THE
PRESS, DON’T INSULT THE SENATE MINORITY LEADER.
DON’T GO TO PAUL RYAN’S DISTRICT AND MOCK HIM AND SAY YOU’LL
SUPPORT HIM UNTIL YOU DECIDE NOT TO.
WINNING IN WASHINGTON IS HARD ENOUGH WITHOUT PICKING
UNNECESSARY FIGHTS EVERY DAY. YOU KNOW WHO HE REALLY NEEDS TO
BE TALKING TO RIGHT NOW ON NORTH KOREA?
THE GUY WHO WARNED HIM THAT NORTH KOREA WAS GOING TO BE HIS
MOST DIFFICULT PROBLEM, BARACK OBAMA.
HE CAN’T DO THAT BECAUSE HE’S BEEN SO RECKLESS AND
IRRESPONSIBLE, WITH A TWEET THAT HE DID ON A SATURDAY MORNING AND
HE DIDN’T HAVE THE CHARACTER TO TAKE IT BACK AND STEP BACK.
SO HE’S INSULTED EVERYBODY FROM THE 44th PRESIDENT TO GREAT
BRITAIN TO ALL OF OUR ALLIES. >>HOLD ON ONE SECOND.
WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY WAS, TO YOUR POINT, I ACTUALLY DISAGREE.
I DON’T THINK PEOPLE ARE TUNING OUT.
I THINK THEY’RE TUNING IN. IF YOU’RE SAYING SALES OF “THE
NEW YORK TIMES” ARE UP AND ARE TV RATINGS UP?
I THINK THEY ARE. I THINK PEOPLE ARE WATCHING
CLOSELY AND LIKE ME, THEY’RE REALLY DISAPPOINTED.
SOME OF THEM ARE LESS DISAPPOINTED BUT THEY’RE
DISAPPOINTED. I THINK THE LIGHTS ARE ON WITH
THIS PRESIDENCY. IT WOULD BE REALLY GREAT FOR
TRUMP IF THEY WOULD TUNE OUT JUST A TAD BIT.
>>I’M SAYING HIS CORE SUPPORTERS THAT WERE THERE ALL
THE TIME AND ONLINE AND FIGHTING FOR HIM AND WATCHING TV ALL THE
TIME ARE ALL GOING, WAIT A SECOND, WHY AM I FIGHTING FOR
THIS GUY ALL THE TIME WHEN HE KEEPS STEPPING ON POLITICAL LAND
MINES? >>THAT’S RIGHT, THAT’S RIGHT.
>>YOU MENTIONED SOMETHING VERY INTERESTING AND INTRIGUING —
>>THE FIRST TIME THAT HAS HAPPENED IN TEN YEARS.
CAN WE GET THE CONFETTI FROM THE CEILING?
>>THE LACK OF COMMUNICATION, OBVIOUSLY, WITH FORMER PRESIDENT
BARACK OBAMA. WHAT YOU PICK UP ANECDOTALLY AND
LISTEN TO CONVERSATIONS WITH PEOPLE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE
SEEMINGLY — THEY’RE NOT INDICTING HIM, NOT CONTEMPTUOUS
OF HIM. THEY REPRESENT THE VAST MIDDLE.
THEY’RE SICK AND TIRED OF HIS REFERENCING THE ELECTION.
HE WON THE ELECTION, STOP TALKING ABOUT THE ELECTION, STOP
TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU WON, STOP TALKING ABOUT THE ELECTORAL
COLLEGE YOU’RE PRESIDENT, ACT LIKE THE
PRESIDENT. >>THE GUY ALSO — THE GUY SAID
THAT HE HAD WON THE MOST ELECTORAL VOTES OF ANY
REPUBLICAN LIKE IN HISTORY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
IT ENDS UP — PETER BAKER LOOKED INTO IT QUICKLY, OTHER THAN
GEORGE W. BUSH IN 2000, HE ACTUALLY WON THE LEAST NUMBER OF
ELECTORAL VOTES OF ANY REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT GOING BACK
TO RUTHERFORD B. HAYES. PEOPLE ARE PICKING UP ON THIS
STUFF, TOO. HE KEEPS SAYING THINGS THAT
AREN’T TRUE. HE WAS RUNNING AGAINST HILLARY
CLINTON WHO HE TOLD EVEN MORE FALSEHOODS, ACCORDING TO THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE. HE’S NOT

  1. Donald Trump is the necessary consequence of the Reagan era. I am grateful that I'll be dead by the time the necessary consequence of the Trump era has arrived.

  2. 36% of those polled need to learn what words like "honest" and "trustworthy" mean. As for Trump, "tuning him out" is the most dangerous thing we could do!

  3. I love how you yentas who help build Trump on this show try to act shocked by his incompetence. This guy has been an obvious simpleton fraud since day one, stop acting like anyone intelligent actually believed this petulant 70 year old child could be anything but a delusional lunatic.

  4. Wait, 36% of people still think he's honest, and trustworthy?!? All those numbers seemed far too high, but that one still stood out for me, even though it was the lowest of the numbers shown there.

  5. Am I the only one who wishes that Joe would stop talking sometimes?
    I mean, he's not that bad, but… he has a tendency to declare that his opinions are facts. Spoiler alert: they aren't.

  6. How does Trump keep such HIGH numbers??? You'd think he'd be 10% or lower on all positive questions? Are Americans reeeeaally following the news?

  7. Yes Mika! WE ARE TUNED IN! WHY IS TRUMP STILL PRESIDENT.
    TO THE SENATE AND CONGRESS: WE WANT HIS TAX RETURNS!!! SUBPOENA THEM!!!!

  8. Anyone else think Mika's gonna walk off one of these days? She looks like she's getting irritated with Joe not letting her get a word in.

  9. whatever the polls say you gotta add like 15 points. Remember that's how he won. Any time you take a poll about trump the actual number is higher.

  10. What kind of authority figures do those people ( the 40%) have in their lives that they can look at That Person and see anything that isn't weak, ignorant, petty and irresponsible? I honestly don't get it.

  11. More polls for you guys to lie with. You have been wrong now for a long time with your biased and bought polls.

  12. People ARE tuning in. Here in Canada!! We repost all of these morning shows. We scratch our heads that nobody saw him for what he was during the campaign. Seriously!?

  13. I think the poor figures can be attributed to the continuous daily media attack on him . I don't like him because he hate me just because I am a Muslim. Yes, he is a silly bigot. However, he is the President now which affect the USA and the World. .Why don't the media be more merciful and have a positive engagement with him to change him.He is capable of changing his mind when he is more informed as in the case with China.

  14. Show us your TAXES Mr "president." If you don't have anything to hide….why are you hiding them??

    And the hypocrite Trump is now okay with China because they basically bribed him and his daughter. Disgusting.

  15. big mouthed liars have a short used by length of time. Personally, when this ugly pig-eyed fool opens his mouth my skin crawls.

  16. I love how they still talking about polls after the disaster! Keep banking on asking a few people how they feel about the president. Remember how that worked out!

  17. Is Trump absolutely unqualified for office, or extremely mentally unstable, or outrageously corrupt? Yes, yes, and yes. Congrats America on electing the biggest moron in US history.

  18. 39% is still a large percentage of Americans… I don't understand how so many people can still think he is doing a good job.

  19. And here I thought electing a complete moron president was going to be great for the country, but now I'm starting to have my doubts.

  20. TROUBLE IS: "Trump-headed voters" are "fire-and-forget" voters. After they get their guy in power they "tune out". That's what authoritarians DO> "The king will handle it". That's why they can say "fake news" when they hear bad news. It's more face saving than "I quit paying attention".

  21. This is the same network who said he would lose the election by the same margin Mondale lost to Reagan in '84. MSNBolloCks.

  22. Mika is right, under Obama, I didn't pay close attention, but under Trump my interest in politics have resurfaced. Like so many Americans, I have concern how Trump will try to destroy all the great things this country is known for. It seems implausible this man was ever elected. Scary times.

  23. Amazing how much of a mess one man can make. As ALL the major back door deals are made and we sleep through them as we are distracted by the drama.

  24. I would say his numbers are going up. He came into the White House at 29%. Now they are at 40%. I predict that they will be at 60% by the end of 2017.

  25. I can't wait until Trump wins again. I think it will be even more hysterical than the last time. I'm going to need more cups for all those liberal tears.

  26. It ain't over till it's over. He's slowing Islam from creeping into America. Left will say its racist but remember they say Islam the religion of peace!! Ignorant fools.

  27. How about Article 1 Section 9 Clause 8; Article 2 Section 4; Article 6, Supremacy Clause; Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the 14th Amendment; and Sections 1 and 4 of the 25th Amendment. Here is where each and everyone of you need to bring out to the American Public regardless of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity or political affiliation. Education wins!

  28. Pride goes befor the Fall. His boasting will turn off Americans and the rest of the World, people like to see humility, humanity, compassion and Quiet Strength in a REA Leader!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Trump had one of the lowest electoral college wins as a Republican? Man you're all fishing for anything negative. Yes he has failed and has disappointed but you have you also look at all he has accomplished. Your show has an obvious bias and has failed to mention any of his accomplishments

    You all are the real reason why we are disappointed and why we are tuning out MSM. Why would Trump apologize when he was proven to be correct? Where is his apology for calling him a liar immediately or claiming that it was impossible for him to win the presidency?

    If you are gaining any viewers, it's strictly to analyze the amount of deceit, propaganda and to set an example of what the news isn't. We appreciate the laughs but please just focus on real news coverage.

    WE SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO TELL IF YOU LIKE OR DISLIKE THE PRESIDENT! YOUR JOB IS TO REMAIN NETURAL AND CALM, KIND OF LIKE THE NEWS ANCHORS ON THE MORNING OF 9/11

  30. If you want a quality meal, you start with quality ingredients…. Trump is old round steak, tough and indigestible … How are you going to create a great meal out of that?

  31. How can ANYONE say this man is trust worthy when everything that comes out his mouth is a LIE? I dont get it. I do NOT believe polls anymore.

  32. Trump is an utter disgrace. He is degrading the presidency and has dramatically lowered Americas standing in the world. He is not fit to be a dogcatcher. He would lie about the number of dogs he caught. The dogs would be the biggest, really big, really huge and bigly.

  33. Why did hillary clinton as sec of state sell America`s uranium mining interests to Russia? How much money did she receive personally and through the clinton foundation? Will be fun watching how she squeals her way out of this one before a grand jury. LOL

  34. Why dont they ever cover recent events around america changing the world, or disasters, or new inventions? Just politics…

  35. The 36% who believe the POTUS is honest and trustworthy are 100% ignorant. Personally, I'm not a fan of Pence, but at least he understands how public service works. I pray every day Pence is the busiest VPOTUS in history.

  36. I don't trust polls anymore look what happened in the election. Trump people are not honest when they are being polled. They still support in secret.

  37. The roughly 40% of Americans who think Trump is doing a relatively good job – they don't watch, read, or listen to the news. They can't be paying attention. If they were, they would see Trump is a sociopath and a danger to this country.

  38. Trump's approval rating is the lowest for any president since pollsters started measuring it Forty-two percent of Americans say they approve of Trump's performance as president, while 53 percent say they disapprove.Obama had an approval rating of 69 percent, with 26 disapproving.

  39. They forgot to mentioned sampled 85 percent democrats. Same polls still show Hillary up 10 points in PA.

  40. 36% of Yanks think Drumpf is "honest and trustworthy".
    What are the stats on autism-vaxers? young Earthers? climate change deniers? evolution deniers?
    Is it something in the water?

  41. Trump thinks he can do anything he wants and not lose his core supporters. Recent experience seems to bear this out. And the Republican congress has, with a few high profile exceptions, proven themselves to be political opportunists willing to hitch their wagon to Trump's star hoping to get political advantage.

  42. yeah well polls were spelling trouble for him before the election as well, look what happened. these polls are biased against President Trump and the public sees through it.

  43. It infuriates me how Trump gets credit for putting a judge on the supreme court. That seat was Garlants seat! It was Obamas job to fill it and he did, Republican Senate stole that Judge from the Nation!

  44. I feel sick that 40% of our country still have faith in this guy who has told more lies than we can keep track of.

  45. WE SHOULD STOP CALLING THEM ALL ENTITLEMENTS GET IT STRAIGHT WELFARE FOOD STAMPS WIC AD NAUSEUM ARE NOT ENTITLEMENTS THEY ARE TAXPAYER-FUNDED HANDOUTS AND SHOULDN'T BE CALLED ENTITLEMENTS AT ALL SOCIAL SECURITY AND VETERANS BENEFITS ARE 'ENTITLEMENTS' BECAUSE THE PEOPLE RECEIVING THEM ARE ENTITLED TO THEM THEY WERE EARNED AND PAID FOR BY THE RECIPIENTS ~HOLLYWOOD MEME

    boys, one from Iraq and two from Eritrea, entered their guilty plea last week but the case’s resolution received almost no national attention.
