Texas Republicans love Trump and Democrats don't, new poll shows — Surprise


Rasmussen has been a consistent outlier since Trump took office, however, with the president sitting at 39.9 percent when averaging all major approval polls, including Rasmussen.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump's job performance.

President Trump may have cited the Rasmussen Reports poll when touting his 50 percent approval rating, but President Trump didn't cite the poll's other stats.

Sixers get No. 1 pick from Celtics
With Thomas, the Celtics didn't necessarily need a point guard - which is the piece Philadelphia apparently wanted most. The Sixers used the No. 1 pick past year on Ben Simmons , who missed the entire season because of a foot injury.

Real Clear Politics - which averaged the most recent poll results of Quinnipiac, Gallup, Rasmussen and others - saw Trump's approval rating at 40 percent with a mean disapproval rating of 53 percent on Monday.

The AP questionnaire worked to get to the bottom of what motivated or informed that disapproval, finding that 65 percent of respondents believed that Trump had no respect for democratic institutions.

Trump suggested that his approval rating was higher than that of his predecessor, Barack Obama. He said Democrats are not fans of the state's junior senator - "he's got to write off 33 percent of the electorate" - but said Cruz's strength with Republicans gives him a solid foundation.

The Fifa Confederations Cup
The Confederations Cup will be held from June 17 to July 2 in the Russian cities of Kazan, Sochi, St. Asked about his team's chances in the tournament, he said: "We're confident we can do well".

He dipped down to 43 percent on May 17, in this particular survey, and has been slowly moving back up since.

The latest figures also include 31 percent who "strongly approve" of the way Trump is performing and 42 percent who "strongly disapprove". Republicans in Texas are still satisfied, with 66 percent saying Trump is honest and trustworthy and 80 percent saying he's competent. Perhaps more significant, however, was its report that 64 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump's performance.

On June 13 it registered at 56 percent, the day before the shooting.

Irish parliament elects new prime minister
The New York Times uses the Reuters copy and with the headline: " Leo Varadkar Elected as Ireland's First Gay Prime Minister". LEO Varadkar last night celebrated his election as Taoiseach with late-night bash in Dublin's best known nightclub.

Democrats' astonishment notwithstanding, the success of Donald Trump's usurpation of the Republican Party leadership is clearly in evidence in the attitudes of Texas voters, making any expectations that Republican elected officials can abandon him without penalty ill-advised. The Rasmussen survey samples 1,500 likely voters over a three-day period and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. To see more, visit KUT 90.5.
