This is his highest approval index in Rasmussen in six months.

Doesn't matter if it's biased right or left, this shows a definitive trend towards Trump.

That was when I switched. I like a few running then but was leaning Cruz. Never cared for Trump. He some down that escalator, and gives his speech (which I was lucky enough to all watch live) and I switched during the speech to him.

My only regrets about Election Night 2016. I missed seeing the NYT needle and I had no idea The_Meltdown existed.

zathras11 4 points ago +4 / -0

I was on the PA page there and for about 90 minutes there were fewer ballots uncounted than his lead and I kept saying why aren't they calling this? They didn't want to! Finally FNC (which I had on) did and then the dam broke.

Yes, Reddit. It was created prior to Election Night 2016 as a forum for Trump haters to gloat over the Shillary victory and post screenshots of pedes in agony.

Needless to say, things turned out a little differently.

It'll never come at all. We still don't even have a 100% effective flu vaccine. Anyone who says lockdown needs to continue until a vaccine is arguing for a never-ending lockdown.

Why will the vaccine take many years? Dont we have some in late stage testing now?

13
ukr567 13 points ago +13 / -0

To make sure the damn thing is safe. Look COVID is not smallpox it does not kill 30% of people.. you need to make sure that the vaccine does not kill too many people or the trade off is not worth it.

I am not sure about years but November seems wildly optimistic, I would be glad to be proven wrong though.

6
DemRefugee007 6 points ago +6 / -0

Maybe it could be ready by November for use on high risk people like the extremely old or the heavily immunocompromised.

8
Italians_Invented_2A 8 points ago +9 / -1

Normally a vaccine takes many years to be researched and approved. Even if it was approved by the FDA tomorrow morning, it'll still take many months to mass produce and distribute.

I'd never get in my body a vaccine that was rushed in less than 1 year. Fuck that. And I wear a mask, for context.

Vaccine is surely not going to be a factor for the elections, take it to the bank.

11
DemRefugee007 11 points ago +11 / -0

Yeah, I'm not an anti vaxxer under normal circumstances. I'm a little skeptical of covid vaccines due to the rush, though. Challenger happened because of govt rushing things due to public pressure.

6
makethemwatch 6 points ago +6 / -0

Trump fronted Drug companies some money so they are already in the process of mass producing. Once they get approval millions of doses will go to front line workers the next day

4
LibertyStillMatters 4 points ago +4 / -0

I disagree. It will be here this year or early next at latest. Everything from the local bar/concert hall to the SuperBowl need to have piece of mind that gatherings are ‘safe’ ie the leftists idea that risk must be nearly zero....

American economy has endured well, despite all the restrictions. Vaccine will give any of those still concerned the opportunity to feel ‘safe‘ about moving back into society. Many of the things you’ve said about vaccine development are different here. Manufacturers are getting tremendous assistance by Trump to cut red tape and loop holes and to expedite things like never before. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised that we know exactly what this virus is because we’ve foolishly partnered with the Chinese to develop. Our medical ‘elite’ thinking it was to further science, the Chinese as a bio-weapon candidate. So a lot of the R&D has already been done before the outbreak even began. Just my two cents.

Just wait until the first reports of severe side effect start coming in. There's no way I'd be among the first ones to inject this.

Fauci and Collins this week both said vaccine this year is gonna happen. CDC sent letter to all 50 states saying to get infrastructure ready for vaccine deployment on Nov 1st. It's gonna happen.

11
OrangeElvis 11 points ago +11 / -0

That vaccine will be for "at risk" first - meaning seniors. Dont be surprised if it makes you so sick it incopacitates you for a week.

I dont trust this setup AT ALL.

5
elopez4024 5 points ago +5 / -0

At risk will be placebo patients of phase 3 trials first, then healthcare workers and the seniors in nursing homes. Safety trials have been done, the side effects will be similar to flu vaccine. This is over this year, and thanks to Trump we are going to get this vaccine on time.

I love this line:

"And, as Rasmussen reported earlier, Obama had a 95% positive media. Broadcast coverage of President Trump is a 95% negative."

I'm happy to see that so many people don't trust the MSM anymore. I'm pretty hopeful for the future.

28
deliquo 28 points ago +28 / -0

The critical thing about Rasmussen is their consistency in methodology/approach across multiple presidents coupled with the frequency.

Compare them head to head at the same point in their first terms and you'll note very similar approval numbers, but Trumps "Strongly Approve" is +10 over Obama.

I've copied all of these into a spreadsheet to watch how their numbers move over time. As I recall, Trump is consistently doing better than Obama did except during heavy media pushes of Russia-gate.

Nice work! The thing that gets me is people talk about Trump like he's the least popular president of all time, but his ratings are almost always the exact same as Obama's where at the same point in his presidency

5
Vests123 5 points ago +5 / -0

Yes, but the media coverage with Obama was usually positive, but with POTUS it's usually negative. This gives the appearance that he's not as popular, which we all know is false since he's more popular.

Block_Helen 7 points ago +7 / -0

I know Trump had his best aggregate polling ever at the end of March, but I believe Rasmussen was at 53% at some point.

Edit: He hit 53 twice in 2019.

4
JuicyfearsMAGA 4 points ago +4 / -0

So it's almost as high as it's been..within the margin of error.

About time it's rising, hopefully he can get to 53-55 by the end of the month.

It's clear he's winning BIG on law and order, and with the Covid plandemic winding down almost everywhere the deep state and media had to coordinate the new hit story about him calling wounder warriors and veterans losers and weak.

I pray his approval does not waver during this new attack, which would mean more and more see through it. Biden will be running with the story starting today or this weekend.

SomeGuyOnTheInternet 10 points ago +10 / -0 (edited)

It forces the media to cover how unsecure and inefficient the mail in system is, it provides a back up for all those republican votes that were going to disappear, dems will be too scared that Trump supporters will get an extra vote to allow mail in ballots, and the cherry on top - Trump is for it so the left machine has to be 1000% against.

thuggishruggishtrump 7 points ago +7 / -0

More specifically he said to send in a mail in ballot then go make sure that mail in ballot was received and tallied but if it wasn't THEN cast a vote in person.

The way unemployment is handled right now is basically a problem. Most folks don't start looking for work until their benefits are about to run out. Which is why extending said benefits does nothing to help people or the economy.

They asked the usual questions like who do you support but also some stuff like position on current issues like shutdown, school, Covid, etc. Also asked questions like have you seen trump speak in the last week and what was it about. Same for biden. Probably to gauge engagement.

One thing about Trump and the democraps, they've made up so much blatantly false shit about him that nobody believes anything negative about him anymore (nobody that matters at least). All presidents should be criticized because that's healthy but they've made it so that if he wanted to he could do fucking anything and most normal people would probably just be like "yeah that's probably not true".

6
Block_Helen 6 points ago +6 / -0

Yep, they blew it. They went too hard too fast against him. Everyone has tuned them out, even on the left. If anyone is still persuadable, they're not paying attention to national MSM headlines. They're looking around their own city/state/area and seeing what's going on, good and bad.

Rasmussen is definitely the most accurate poll until a couple of weeks before the election. Then the others tend to fall in line. Being massively wrong in September doesn't count for some reason, so the really loaded polls like Reuters or Politico feel free to publish recklessly inaccurate results.

I pay attention to Rassmusen the most just to see where where he trends for the most part and recently he is trending really well for this period before the election. Everything else is white noise to me unless aggregated with a few others taken at the same time, but for the most part it's still white noise because most polls are vastly underrepresenting the GOP who are already shy about telling their true positions and diluting it with over sampling of dems.

I have a 100 dollar bet with a friend of mine regarding the election. He thinks Biden will win because he knee jerk reacted to some polls in June that way under sampled Republicans. I told him you can't just look at the headline, you have to read their methodology.

I'll almost feel guilty taking his money. Almost.

If you want more betting, good odds on PredictIt right now. That place is infested with lefties. I have put in...a lot...and I could win...a hell of a lot.

If you have enough money, you could buy calls for January when the stock market is sure to boom after he is sworn in if you are certain he is going to win. They are running about 2300 a pop right now but the potential for profit is way higher than predictit.

Potential for loss much higher, too, though, right?

So you can actually get some better value than the ~.42 per share that is on PI right now. Electoral college margin of victory and popular vote margin of victory. Those are the riskier ones since its kind of q dart throw.

But let's just say you were to vote on the EC and popular vote being the same as 2016.

850 (the max investment) on popular vote margin of victory 1.5-3.0 returns $6560 after fees are taken out.

850 on EC 60-99 is the same.

$1700 investment return of $13120. Higher risk but those are logical bets IMO.

Personally I'm maxed out on multiple Biden NO, and now I'm spreading the 850 max on EC and PV margin of victory among the 3 most likely.

This is the biggest bet of my life. Been working 60+ hour weeks and dumping into it. Took off Nov 4th and 5th to either celebrate or drown my tears. Like Bart Scott said, CAN'T WAIT

Remember Bill Mitchell? He was huge in 2016, simply because so few conservatives would stand up for Trump. He convinced me that it was worthwhile to unskew the leftist polls, and I had Trump up by 2 to 3 points on Election Day.

Of course, the tracking polls like Rasmussen and LA Times had Trump very close all along, and they were proven absolutely right. Complicated business, folks!

Even here you'll have people point to the last 2-3 polls by any given outfit prior to Election Day and say "see they weren't that far off!" Well, in many cases they WERE really far off.

But more importantly, that ignores all the "narrative-setting" polls of earlier in the election cycle that had Hillary up double digits. For example, throughout the summer.

These were complete bullshit and their sole purpose was to set the narrative that Trump had zero chance and anyone thinking about voting for him was a racist loser wasting their time. Oh, and JUST like Biden, the polls gave her the excuse she needed for why she wasn't campaigning due to her poor health and the fact that the more people saw of her, the more they liked Trump. "She's so far ahead she doesn't need to campaign." Etc.

I thought they were already in full-on cornered animal panic mode.

You mean they can actually get crazier?

Is there any way we can predict this craziness? I'm guessing standard lawlessness and irrational hording/stealing, the usual debauchery and perversions can't really intensify if they're already maxed out.

I don't see how they could possibly even find another division point for identity politics. They're pretty much maxed out of options now and it's 1000 years of the Patriarchy/Whites never letting minorities/women/jihadist anywhere near 'our stuff', or go full murderous rampage on us. I don't know about you, but they serious fucked up this 'Trust based society' and I wouldn't let a stranger spend five minutes with my children anymore. I'm already prepared, like many of you, for the inevitable knock at the door at 4am OR the rampaging mob through the subdivision/neighbourhood.

See, i would argue your logic is backwards. You never know what could be on your hand when you go piss. If you wash em, you're clean. If you have STDs on your dick, you need to wash em afterwards. If your dick is clean, you don't.

Latest poll in MN has 18% of blacks saying they will vote for Trump. Not just approval, will vote FOR Trump. Needless to say that if it happens, it will be a historic high for a Republican in the modern era and could mean devastation all down the Dem ticket and the House will flip back to the Republicans.

Blacks will help him win in two ways: they'll vote for him in increased percentage, and they will not turn out in big numbers for Biden. Biden needs not only increased black turnout from 2016 to win, he needs to hold the percentage of the black vote too, or increase it. Neither will happen.

That's the only reason the Dems scream about muh racists all day every day. Desperation.

As the election gets closer they need to move the polls closer to reality so they can claim it changed right at the end.... same as 2016. They'll never admit the truth, but they need to at least make it plausible or else the deception won't work.

In fact it would be great if, because of the Democrats, Trump was elected President for His Life. Elections start again when GEOTUS passes away and people fight to represent one iota of the man he is/was.

Trump is a master strategist. Knows when to peak. Although, it’s not like he has let up since he came down that escalator... it’s just that he is working with a hostile media that gives him zero credit so somehow he is resonating with the normies at exactly the right time
