It's amazing to me how much it fluctuates. How can it fluctuate from like 32% to 40%? There is really that many people who are like "Yeah, this is fine now", even if briefly?

Though daily tracker polls are weird. And overall trends seem to keep him at about 36% to 38% on average.


I think the odd aspect of this presidency is how much is based simply on his Twitter account, seems the past few weeks someone got a degree of control on it and he's been relatively sane but these past couple of days he's gone off the edge again. His approval seems to essentially rise and fall against the sanity of his tweets.

It also drops during indictments.

Meh, Bannon couldn't get a Republican elected in Alabama. He's a self-aggrandizing bullshitter and "professional troll", nothing more.

Yep. If you ever find yourself doing a paper on cult behavior or something like that, you'll find no better cesspool to use as a case study.

He is slitting his throat. Bannon is clever and unlike Arleton's lot, his message of economic nationalism and controlling capital is popular. Wait till Breitbart turns on him.

So you're saying I'm being the Emperor in Return of the Jedi? Neat. :P

Seriously, though, I'm not sure how this will turn out for Bannon and Trump. It may all boil down to whether the lion's share of Trump's base (or at least his more militant base) are primarily ideologues or cultists. If the majority care more about ideology and policies than they do about Trump as their leader, Trump's fighting with Bannon is not going to end well for him.
