Trump's weak poll numbers don't tell the real story

- The Democrat congressional leaders are actually polling worse.

- That matters more than usual now in light of the government shutdown and the adversarial political landscape.

- President Trump's weak approval ratings only tell half the story.

That's because it's never enough to look only at a president's or any politician's approval ratings and overall poll numbers. You never know the full story until you see the numbers for his or her chief opponents.

It was Schumer and Pelosi who have led the most visual and verbal counterattack against the White House during this shutdown drama.

That's when the news gets better for the president, a lot better.

The latest poll of polls by the Huffington Post has Schumer's approval rating at a measly 26 percent, 13 points lower than President Trump. The same poll of polls has Pelosi's approval rating just a hair better at just under 29 percent. Perhaps the only other Democrat who came close to holding the floor on the shutdown as often as Schumer and Pelosi did was Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, who holds an anemic 37 percent approval rating of his own.

With enemies like these, who needs friends?

The second factor just coming to the surface is the better-than-expected early positive effect from the tax reform law. The congressional Republicans are already starting to poll better on the shoulders of all the news of bonuses, raises, and increased corporate investments in America.

Trump's weak poll numbers just proves that there are still wingnuts who support a fool.

Trumps approval is historic low inside and outside the country. Deal with it.

All I need to know about poll numbers happened in 2016 when the "Polls" gave Hillary Clinton an overwhelming advantage to become president.

He still got elected and the house and senate is still red, because the Dems are just that much more horrible.

Wait until people start seeing their tax return checks.

The mid terms will be very interesting this year.

I agree.

The polls proved that they can be very wrong.

Especially when many of these leftist polling sources are over sampling a demographic to influence the results of their poll. Completely untrustworthy, and I wouldn't trust the data from any poll from certain sources (CNN, NYT, Huffington Post, etc).
