It is a day in the Trump administration, therefore there is a new poll showing Trump winning at polls in ways he never imagined. Now, recently we told you about a Quinnipiac poll that showed Trump with a number NEVER BEFORE seen for a new president, which was a 33% approval rating. That was bad! And to be sure, this Gallup poll that just came out isn't quite that bad, at 34%, but it does break Gallup's own record! (And that Quinnipiac number is within Gallup's margin of error, so this is equally bad.)

Now please understand that this poll was conducted before Trump soothed all our sadness and outrage, by saying OK fine he guesses the Nazis who did all the violence in Charlottesville were Nazis. IF YOU INSIST, he will say Nazis and white supremacists are bad, and he will cross his tiny fingers behind this rump when he's saying it, but HE'S SAYING IT, OK? AND IF YOU DON'T REPORT THAT HE SAID IT, YOU ARE FAKE NEWS, like a common Jim Acosta from CNN.

Trump's disapproval in this latest poll, which was taken August 11-13 (so that includes two days of Charlottesville), is 61%, which is the exact same as Quinnipiac showed a couple weeks ago.

What's that thing Trump always says about winning? Pffffffft, is it even funny to point that out anymore?

Gallup notes that Trump's numbers were already looking godawful during the Friday portion of this poll, so EVEN IF Charlottesville hadn't happened yet, it's POSSIBLE that a lot of the folks they talked to also unfairly disapproved of how Trump spent the week trying to macho dick us into nuclear war with North Korea, all while he was beached at Bedminster on his "working stay-cation." We just don't know.

It's starting to feel redundant to write all these "haw haw Trump sux at polls" posts, because his support just keeps drip, drip, dripping away, like a leaky Russian pee hooker. A CNN poll last week found that the number of Republicans who "strongly approve" of Trump has gone down to 59%, which means he's even starting to chip away at his base a little bit. But we will be Ford Tough about it and keep letting you know each time there's evidence that America hates him a little bit more, because we know how happy it makes you.
