Most US voters oppose Trump's impeachment

A poll from Quinnipiac University shows Trump's approval at 38%, down from 41% the month before. The poll finds a growing share of Americans now think Trump did know about the $130,000 payment made directly by Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels in October 2016 (73% say so in the survey, up from 67% in May).

Trump's low approval ratings nationwide come as his administration fights off allegations of chaos within his administration in Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear", as well as claims in a recent anonymous New York Times op-ed article of a "quiet resistance" against the president within the White House. The numbers among self-described "liberals" are almost the same; 79% want Trump impeached as compared to 17% who don't. He is just below 50 percent approval for his handling of the economy, but his other policy numbers are atrocious.

Black voters pick Democrats by 84 - 7 percent. Republicans in deep-red regions might want to rethink running on "Helping Trump's agenda".

Nope, according to a vast majority of Americans. A smaller share take the positive angle on each one, with 28% calling him more in touch, 27% more honest or less corrupt and 22% more intelligent. The guy who was supposed to change D.C. turned out to be a change for the worse - a lot worse.

With congressional elections looming, Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Monday proposed more deficit-expanding tax cuts, an effort seen by some tax experts as unlikely to become law and geared chiefly toward winning votes.

Brickyard 400 to be run today
Rain washed out the entire weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the final race before the playoffs was moved to today. This almost became an issue in last year's Brickyard 400 after a one-hour, 47-minute rain delay took place during the race.

Hurricane Florence evacuations expand, with 'disaster at doorstep'

Bills will start rookie Josh Allen at QB against Chargers
Allen gets a tough first opponent in a Chargers defense that could be without star defensive lineman Joey Bosa. Peterman went 5-18 for 24 yards and two interceptions before getting replaced by Allen in the second half.

As other polls have shown, Trump polls terribly among women voters (29 percent approval, 65 percent disapproval), college graduates (31 percent, 65 percent), white college graduates (34 percent, 63 percent) and independents (31 percent, 59 percent).

With an eye toward November's midterm elections, House Republicans on Monday unveiled legislation to make permanent the individual tax cuts and pass-through business deductions that were set to expire in 2026 as part of the sweeping tax rewrite enacted late previous year. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently said it would be a gift to Republicans, implying it would fire up Trump's base supporters.

Republicans, however, said by 62 to 11 percent that Congress does enough to check Trump. That friendship, Carter said, means when Russian Federation and other nations hold multilateral talks about the Syrian conflict, "Quite often they invite the Carter Center". Republicans are doing miserably on health care, so they dare not raise that as a topic.

President Donald Trump is starting to acknowledge the growing chance that Democrats could win in this fall's midterms, and he is already developing a strategy in case of impeachment without removal, Axios reports.
