National: President Donald Trump’s re-elect figures similar to those of President Obama and President Clinton by Gallup

  • 37% of U.S. voters say Trump deserves re-election
  • Obama (37%), Clinton (38%) had similar figures at first midterms
  • 78% of Republican voters think Trump deserves a second term

U.S. registered voters solidly believe that President Donald Trump does not deserve to be re-elected, by 59% to 37%. The percentage of voters who say Trump deserves re-election is essentially identical to that of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama at the time of the 1994 and 2010 midterm elections, respectively. More voters said George W. Bush deserved re-election at the time of the midterm elections in his first term, in 2002.

The latest results are based on an April 9-15 poll of U.S. registered voters. Trump’s re-elect number roughly matches his 39% job approval rating among all U.S. adults in the same week of Gallup tracking.

Trump’s approval ratings have been significantly worse than those of his predecessors at similar points in their presidencies. And his re-elect figures do not match those of Clinton (40% in April 1994) and Obama (46% in March 2010) in the spring of their first midterm election years. However, by the time voters cast ballots in those presidents’ first midterms that fall, the percentage of voters believing Clinton and Obama deserved to be re-elected had fallen to the same level Trump is at now.

Midterm election outcomes are often a referendum on the incumbent president. Clinton and Obama both saw their party suffer huge losses in their first midterm elections, when fewer than four in 10 voters thought they deserved re-election. In 1994, Democrats lost 53 seats in the House, and in 2010, they lost 63 seats. Those losses were large enough to make Republicans the majority party in the House of Representatives. In contrast, the Republican Party gained six seats in the 2002 midterms, when a majority of voters thought Bush deserved to be re-elected slightly more than a year after the 9/11 terror attacks.

Unless voters’ opinions of Trump improve significantly, the GOP could face a significant rebuke at the ballot box. Republicans currently enjoy a 44-seat majority in Congress — 237 to 193 — with five vacancies. A net shift of 23 seats in this year’s midterm elections would make the Democrats the majority party in the House.

U.S. voters’ opinions of whether members of Congress — including their own representative — deserve re-election are also more similar to what they were in 1994 and 2010 than in 2002, further supporting the idea of a difficult year for incumbents, particularly Republican incumbents.

Fewer Than Eight in 10 Republican Voters Say Trump Deserves Re-Election

As would be expected, Republican voters are much more likely than Democratic and independent voters to say Trump deserves to be re-elected. Currently, 78% of Republican voters think he should have a second term, compared with 32% of independents and 6% of Democrats.

According to the 2016 exit polls, 90% of Republican voters supported Trump, as did 48% of independents. Although that suggests Trump has lost a significant amount of support since 2016 among Republicans and independents, part of the gap could be accounted for by voter turnout, since many registered voters do not vote in a given election.

Trump’s standing with independents and supporters of the opposition party is similar to that of Clinton and Obama at the time of the 1994 and 2010 midterm elections. About one in three independents believed each deserved re-election, and fewer than one in 10 Republicans did. Trump’s numbers among Republicans are essentially the same as Obama’s among his fellow Democrats in 2010, but slightly better than those of Clinton among Democrats in 1994. Trump would need to see a recovery in his support over the next two years to successfully win re-election, as Clinton and Obama did.

The Trump campaign responds to the Democrats lawsuit

This looks absolutely desperate!!!

What Hillary and her campaign, and her aides in the media don’t understand is the glass ceiling IS broken–even though after the election they keep lamenting that it is intact. The ceiling is gone–because Hillary lost totally because she was personally immoral, politically corrupt, and criminally corrupt. She failed miserably as Secretary of State, was condescending to voters, and felt she was entitled to the White House.

She wasn’t defeated because she was a woman. Had she been successful in prior positions, and had a clean record instead of corrupt, and had at least some respect for the voters and at least tried to act humble instead of entitled, she would be president right now. But there is no glass ceiling–its gone. The USA is clearly ready to elect a woman, but she was the wrong candidate, regardless of gender.
