The Washington Post has just reported that the latest Quinnipiac poll shows Donald Trump's approval rating has sunk from 40% after his bombings a couple of weeks ago, to 35% today. And remember that these numbers largely do not reflect the news we have had in the last 24 hours. This is the lowest Trump rating yet, and the lowest ever recorded for a President in his first term. And remember that Quinnipiac tends, for whatever reason, to lean slightly Republican, so we could guess that the real number is something like 33%, or only six percentage points about the dead minimum support that any Republican gets from their self destructive, hate filled base. It'll be interesting to see where he is next week, although as we approach the core remnant of their irredentist batch of morons, each further point down will get harder and harder to reach.
