Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 04, 2019

House Democrats threatened Wednesday morning to subpoena the White House for documents related to Trump's dealings with Ukraine as part of their impeachment inquiry. House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said in a memo that House committees have repeatedly tried to obtain voluntary compliance from Trump officials, but the White House has "refused to engage with " or even respond to " the Committees." Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) held a joint news conference later that morning, warning that attempts by the White House to "stonewall" the impeachment inquiry and "conceal facts" would be considered an obstruction of justice.

"President Trump's approval ticked up to 49 percent " its highest mark this year, according to a new Hill-HarrisX survey released on Wednesday.
The figure marks a 2-point increase from a Sept. 11-12 poll, but a 2-point decrease from its previous peak of 51 percent in August 2018.
Trump's disapproval rating, meanwhile, dropped to 51 percent, which marks his lowest level so far this year."

"HarrisX researchers surveyed 1,000 registered voters. The margin of error for the full sample is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points."

This will be news when/if it becomes statistically significant.

FWIW, Rasmussen polling has shown a consistent drop in President Trump's total approval (from 53% to 47%) since September 24 (the day the impeachment inquiry was officially begun).

I don't know if I'd say "nosedives."

There has been a recent drop in some polls, but it is way too soon to see if there might be any manner of trend worth mentioning.

That particular poll was taken Sep 28 & 29. The most recent HarrisX poll was taken Sep 30 - Oct 3 with 3000 respondents and reported a 45/55 result.
