Poll: Trump approval rating on the rise in Tennessee

Graphic: Mason-Dixon Polling.

A new Mason-Dixon poll shows President Donald Trump’s popularity is on the rise in Tennessee and three out of five respondents say they oppose efforts to remove him from office.

Trump’s approval rating was 57% in the poll released Friday, up from 54% in April 2018 and 51% in November 2017. Disapproval was a steady 42% in all three surveys.

Trump’s approval was highest in East Tennessee at 61%, compared with 56% in Middle and 53% in West. Ninety-three percent of Republicans approved of the president, while 53% of independents agreed. Just 10% of Democrats approved of Trump’s job performance.

Fifty-nine percent said they opposed the efforts to remove Trump from office. The ratio was higher among men (65% for to 32% against) than women (54%-41%). A near-unanimous 97% of Republicans opposed the president’s removal, as did 56% of independents, and 7% of Democrats.

The poll of 625 registered voters, including 247 Republicans, 207 independence, and 171 Democrats, was conducted between Jan. 28 and Jan. 30. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    who are they polling? Neanderthals?

    • Lenny says:

      Beatrice – The LORD OUR GOD annointed and blessed our planet Earth with Donald John Trump. He didn’t have to run for the job. He’s a billionaire. But first he’s a CHRISTian sent to restore America unto thy Lord!

      God created Adam and Eve not Neanderthals. Evolution is a hoax and a obamanation.

      Third – women are to remain silent. First CORINTHIANS.

        Grab’em by the pussy!!

          I pray for thy wicked demons to be cast from you. Only libral baby murderers talk with such venoms. I assume you are referencing to the DOCTORED video of anointed Trump. If you kindly stop watching preverted FAKE NEWS you would now DONALD JOHN TRUMP never said it.

          In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was God and God choose Donald John Trump to save us from our demonic ways. Thank you Jesus.

          AMEN!

      Keen political analysis Beatrice as usual. The Democrats spend most of the last three years pursuing narratives about Russian responsibility for the 2016 elections and the impeachment of Trump that was never going to happen. They take positions regarding identity politics and the environment way outside the mainstream of American politics. The favored candidates to win the Democratic nomination are two men nearing their 80th birthday one of whom is an outspoken socialist and the other is a mentally frail man whose nepotistic corruption is on tape. And you conclude that only “Neanderthals” will in desperation say they, relatively speaking, support Trump.

    Great poll numbers! Nancy spun the Roulette Wheel and bet it all on Black. So sorry, Red was the winner! And she has failed early enough that the balance in Congress can shift with a better informed electorate. Hats off to Trump, Meadows, and McConnell as they ran a great trap for the TDS afflicted liberals.

    Helps explain Lamar’s vote not to call witnesses.

    Shame on you Beatrice, it”s comments like yours that helped elect the President. Remember the deplorables; how did that work out for you?

  • Eddie White says:

    I did not vote for Trump in the primary, but I did in the general election and I look forward to voting for Trump in 2020. President Trump has exceeded my expectations in most areas. The economy is doing very well thanks to the rollback of numerous regulations and a tax cut for many Americans. I also appreciate Trump’s strong efforts to protect religious liberty and advance the pro-life agenda. I am not surprised his approval ratings have gone up.

    • James White says:

      Just wonder’n Whom did you vote for in the primary. I voted for Trump in the primary and the Constitution Party (Darrell Castle) in the general. Trump has been better than most lately.

      • Eddie White says:

        I voted for Cruz. You did Hillary Clinton a favor by voting for Castle.

        • James White says:

          CFR loving, Aspen Institute Cruz? I did our country a favor by voting For Castle. I have no part in Hillary. If more had voted for Castle, our country would be in a better, Much better shape now.

      • Stuart I. Anderson says:

        OK James, as usual your voting habits are mystifying to me. You are a small government/strict constructionist guy so by the time the primary came to Tennessee it was a contest between a relatively small government/strict constructionist Ted Cruz vs. a man who spent his entire life financially supporting the big government/loose constructionist Democratic Party Donald Trump. You vote for Trump. In the general election naturally we all knew Trump would carry Tennessee but it would have been nice if you contributed to increasing his popular vote against big government/loose constructionist Hilleary so you vote third party.

        Let me guess, somewhere along the line Cruz probably voted for an Art. V Convention. and Trump never did because (1) he never held public office before, and (2) he wouldn’t because we know he doesn’t mind big government even as a Republican and he certainly didn’t mind the constitution just the way it was as a Democrat just so long as we have liberal justices to do the “interpreting” (or creative writing). Am I right? If so, this so perfectly illustrates the lunacy of one issue voting?

          My bad, it wasn’t the “Art. V Convention” it was membership in, or was it just attending a meeting of, the “Aspen Institute.” As Rosanne Rosannadanna once said “It’s always something.”

            Sen. Ted Cruz Supports An Article V Convention of The States
            By queenofliberty · 2 Comments

            This is from a fairly older interview but I wanted to post it here along with our articles and videos about a Convention of States.

            Cruz teaches Katie Couric that an amendment can be proposed by the states.

            Cruz wants an amendment to the Constitution to subject Supreme Court Justices to periodic judicial-retention elections.

            “We are seeing a growing movement pushing for a Convention of States because people are so frustrated with what I call the Washington cartel” Ted Cruz

          • James White says:

            Stuart did you ‘just’ attend a meeting of the the Socialist party? Would that make me suspect of your motives?
            I think you may be a collectivist and that would make you the enemy of freedom. ( there are only 2 enemies)

  • James White says:

    I will post without the links and hope they will allow.

    James, you would be a good professor. The kind that lives in the theory, but has little practical application. Or maybe an officer, occasionally winning a battle while badly losing the war. I believe you are a man of principle suffering a lack of logic.

  • Phil Lassiter says:

    Ooooooh Eddie has NAILED it.
