Trump approval remains at 50% among registered voters nationwide, 90% among his voters, in latest Morning Consult Politico online poll, March 16-19, 2017, 1927 registered voters

Morning Consult is apparently unable to bear the pain of reporting continuing positive Trump approval numbers which have remained at around 50 percent [90% among Trump voters] since his inauguration with the exception of week 2 which dropped a few points (see chart below), so creates a "Trump Scandals" narrative for March 16-19 positive poll results. With a "scandals" narrative, busy readers would have to be predisposed to exerting extra effort to find anything not worthy of ridicule. The notion of a positive Trump number may be written off as irrational, a joke, just people with no teeth. Morning Consult Politico poll dates March 16-19, 2017, 1927 nationwide registered voters.

"On the whole, these scandals don’t seem to be pulling down Trump's overall approval numbers. He has hovered around 50 percent [and 90% among Trump voters] after dropping a few points after the first executive order on immigration. [That "executive order on immigration" was approved by 55% of registered voters, tied for #1 most popular of Trump executive orders to that point, the other most popular being revoking federal funding for sanctuary cities, see chart below]. It’s also important to note that for about a 20 percent of voters, these scandals didn’t change their opinion either way."

page 12 of 276: "Table Q172: 

"Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President?"

Among registered voters: 50% approve:

"Strongly approve 26%
Somewhat approve 24%"

Among Donald Trump voters: 90% approve:

"Strongly approve 52%
Somewhat approve 38%"

(continuing, Morning Consult): "The media-as-enemy tweet in particular was a hit with Trump voters, with 48 percent saying it gave them a more favorable view of the president. That is nine points higher than any other event we tested....

The national, online survey polled 1,927 registered voters from March 16-19. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Crosstabs are available here."
