Look at that goddamn roller coaster George W. Bush was on, and the utterly flaccid lameness of Gerald Ford. The closest you get to Trump here is actually Barack Obama, whose numbers coast a fairly smooth curve all across the board.
This Gallup poll shows pretty well how far we haven't come in terms of Trump:
He was at 45 in January 2017, and in June 2018 he was back at 45. If you dig into the finer points of "Strongly approve" or "Strongly disapprove," you get the same damned thing across months of crazy news stories and scandals. Despite the proliferation of articles about everyone and their uncle turning on him, they sure as shit didn't turn far. But if you really want to be sad, you go back to before Trump was even elected. Here's Gallup data from the months leading up to the election, where Trump'a ratings of favorable vs. unfavorable are compared.
Look familiar? That's the same spread-open ass crack Trump had after he was elected. He's as predictable as Twitter wieners hating on Star Wars. This is the part where you look at the Post-It I asked you to set aside earlier. Did you write "Fuck no, Trump has lost no support at all because we live in a Black Mirror insanity loop?" You should have.
There is something the abundance of articles detailing Trump's failing support do show when you add them all up, and it is that we're going to be reading these same stories until Donald Trump is 105 years old serving out his first, endless, lifetime term as Emperor of All That Is and Will Be from atop a throne of gold-plated skulls. Because right up to the end, that is what we'll want to hear.
