Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

State By State With The Trumpsterfire

Gallup has a poll, which is nice for them, that has Trump's approval ratings in every state.

The bad news first.

Trump's overall approval rating hovers between 35-40%.  He's outperforming 40% in the following battleground states: NH, NC, FL, PA, OH, MI, WI, IA and NV.

The good news: He's under 50% in all of those states.

The better news: He's under 50% in TX, AZ, MI, MO and IN.  Right now, he's above water in the Hillbilly belt (WV, KY, TN, AR), the Confederacy (AL, SC, LA), the Great Plains (OK, KN, NE, SD, ND) and the Mountain West (MT, WY, UT, ID)...oh, and Alaska.

If Trump failed to reach 50% in a two person race, he could be faced with this outcome:a 439-99 Electoral College shellacking.
