96% "It's only June, and he's still relatively strong on the economy."
95% "But he has created his own headwind."
92% "Quite often, Trump has blown the easy stuff while his team has performed admirably dealing with the more nettlesome issues of governance."
90% "It won't be because he adopted an unorthodox policy mix that alienated his own side."
84% "By this standard, the period between mid-March and mid-April was an astonishing success -- as the online news outlet Axios has pointed out, Trump dominated former Vice President Joe Biden on cable news mentions, social media interactions, web traffic and Google searches."
81% "Allocating ventilators, acquiring personal protective equipment and ramping up testing on a rapid basis in the middle of a pandemic when the traditional apparatus of government isn't up to it is hard -- and the Trump team has managed it over the past couple of months."
79% "His philosophy is never to give ground, so he has little appreciation for the occasional need for defensive politics -- to play against type, to preempt arguments against him, to couple a hard line with a soft sentiment."
74% "This is one of those moments of peril."
70% "It will mostly be because he took his presidency and drove it into the ground, 280 characters at a time."
68% "As one of the most compelling showmen of our time, his metric for success is different than that of standard politicians or political operatives."
63% "The press doesn't tell that story, and regardless, it gets overwhelmed by the constant drama emanating from the Oval Office."

Contributing sentiments towards policy:

96% : It's only June, and he's still relatively strong on the economy.
95% : But he has created his own headwind.
92% : Quite often, Trump has blown the easy stuff while his team has performed admirably dealing with the more nettlesome issues of governance.
90% : He's not the Minnesota governor or the Minneapolis mayor.
90% : It won't be because he adopted an unorthodox policy mix that alienated his own side.
84% : By this standard, the period between mid-March and mid-April was an astonishing success -- as the online news outlet Axios has pointed out, Trump dominated former Vice President Joe Biden on cable news mentions, social media interactions, web traffic and Google searches.
81% : Allocating ventilators, acquiring personal protective equipment and ramping up testing on a rapid basis in the middle of a pandemic when the traditional apparatus of government isn't up to it is hard -- and the Trump team has managed it over the past couple of months.
79% : And yet the president has worsened his position with his profligate tweeting, unpresidential conduct and refusal or inability to step up to the magisterial aspect of his office.
79% : His philosophy is never to give ground, so he has little appreciation for the occasional need for defensive politics -- to play against type, to preempt arguments against him, to couple a hard line with a soft sentiment.
74% : This is one of those moments of peril.
70% : It will mostly be because he took his presidency and drove it into the ground, 280 characters at a time.
68% : It's true that events have taken a hand -- a pandemic with a death toll of more than 100,000, a sharp recession, double-digit unemployment and civil unrest would be the horsemen of the apocalypse for any incumbent president.
68% : But he's been hurt by his reflexively combative posture.
68% : As one of the most compelling showmen of our time, his metric for success is different than that of standard politicians or political operatives.
63% : The press doesn't tell that story, and regardless, it gets overwhelmed by the constant drama emanating from the Oval Office.
59% : President Trump is in the midst of a polling swoon largely of his own making.
50% : Trump is never going to change, but in the 2016 campaign, he was able to adjust and modulate at moments of peril just enough to see it through.
49% : CLICK HERE TO TURN ON NOTIFICATIONS.
46% : If Trump loses in November, it won't be because he pursued a big legislative reform that was a bridge too far politically.
45% : The president's poor ratings on the coronavirus have much to do with his overexposure, squabbling with reporters and meandering performances at his news briefings -- all of which was avoidable, and indeed was eventually avoided by stopping the briefings.
41% : GET BREAKING NEWS IN YOUR BROWSER.
35% : But it hasn't helped his political standing.
31% : Of course, nothing is inevitable.
29% : It would mean that immigration enforcement would be drastically curtailed.
29% : It won't even be because he was overwhelmed by events, challenging though they've been.
24% : He wants coverage, good, bad or indifferent.
12% : Losing to Biden would mean all the changes he pursued through administrative action would be subject to reversal.
10% : It would mean, assuming Democrats take the Senate, too, that his judicial appointments would immediately begin to be counteracted.
2% : In the case of George Floyd, there's nothing Trump could have done to stop his killing.
1% : The St. John's Church visit might have been poorly thought out and politically counterproductive, but who can doubt that it was a jaw-dropping spectacle?
