Trump Approval Rating Excels Obama’s Midterm Rating in 2010, Poll Reveals

Donald Trump

Trump, who is frequently portrayed as the most unpopular president in history among U.S. voters, nonetheless commands an extremely high rating among the Republican supporters of his base.

Voter turnout for the midterms is usually much lower than in presidential elections but voter interest is at its highest level for 20 years - with more than 55,000 Dallas County residents casting their votes and more than 40,000 Nevadans on the first day of early voting.

The huge numbers of people were spotted lining up outside the Metropolitan Multi-Service Center on West Gray near River Oaks. Or could this be a typical midterm with the Democrats making just modest gains?

"We have very little foreign aid going, and the aid we do have helps them with law enforcement, drug interdiction, and with programs to help that population stay there", said the Arizona senator. "I tell you what, nobody has helped me more. than Senator Ted Cruz".

President Clinton had a 48 percent approval rating and the Democrats lost 52 seats in the House. It was also the year Democrats lost their Senate majority.

If they win, they may be able to block or delay potential bills put forward by Mr Trump in the future.

A new poll shows just how important turnout among certain groups of voters will be in determining whether Democrats take control of Congress after the midterm elections or if Republicans retain a majority.

New numbers from a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday show the out-of-power party with a 9-point generic lead among likely voters.

US President Donald Trump's approval rating prior to the November 2018 midterm elections exceeds the rating for President Barack Obama ahead 2010 midterms by 2 percent according to a new poll. Recent polls place him at around a 90-percent-approval rating among the Republican base.

The Associated Press reports that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, remains unsatisfied with a Republican probe into Russian interference which turned up evidence of meddling, particularly on social media, but nothing that would connect the Trump campaign directly to Russian hackers.

However, data on early voting also suggests Republican enthusiasm for their President could bump hopes of the so-called "blue wave".
