Added: MSNBC and ABC stunned that their 24/7 attacks against Trump haven't worked: 4/24/17, "Sad 'Morning Joe' Is Floored That Only Two Percent of Trump Voters Regret Backing Him," NewsBusters, Curtis Houck. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough: "That’s a remarkable number....Mika, how can that just be two percent?"
4/24/17, ABC's Good Morning America anchor, "Stephanopoulos ‘Surprised’ Trump Would Beat Clinton Again, Still Has Strong Support," NewsBusters, Kristine March
Poll dates, April 17-20, 2017, 1004 random adults, 3.5 error margin, land lines and cell phones. Above Karl tweet via, "Wash Post poll hides: Trump still beats Clinton, 43%-40%," Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard. "His (Trump's) approval rating among those who cast ballots for him stands at 94 percent....When asked if they would vote for him again, 96 percent say they would, which is higher than the 85 percent of Hillary Clinton voters who say they would support her again."...(Second WaPo article below, parag. 11)
4/23/17, "Trump voters don’t have buyer’s remorse. But some Hillary Clinton voters do." Washington Post, Aaron Blake
"I argued last week that anecdotal stories about disillusioned Trump supporters were overdone. The fact is that, on a broad scale, Trump supporters say they aren't disappointed. In fact, a poll showed they were more pleased than disappointed, by about 5 to 1
"...The Pew Research Center released a poll showing very little buyer's remorse among Trump voters. The poll showed just 7 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say Trump has performed worse than they expected him to. Fully 38 percent — five times as many — say he has performed better."
A new Washington Post-ABC News poll confirms this — in spades."...
[Ed. note: Clicking on this link takes you to a headline that contradicts reporter Blake's thesis: "President Trump is least popular president at 100-day mark." Looking through the page, I saw no no mention of positive Trump poll results reported above by Aaron Blake. Even the subhead of the link we're provided sells "record low" Trump approval. Readers are invited to, "Click "detailed view" to see interactive results by political and demographic groups"...Unless being paid to do so, most people don't have time to click through "detailed views" of each question to find out what news Jeff Bezos and the Washington Post hope you never find out.

(continuing): "And, in fact, it shows more buyer's remorse for Trump's opponent in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton. And were the 2016 election held again today, it shows Trump would avenge his popular-vote loss.
While just 4 percent of Trump's supporters say they would back someone else if there was a redo of the election, fully 15 percent of Clinton supporters say they would ditch her. Trump leads in a re-do of the 2016 election 43 percent to 40 percent after losing the popular vote 46-44.
That 15 percent is split between those who say they would vote for Trump (2 percent), Gary Johnson (4 percent), Jill Stein (2 percent), and either other candidates or not vote (7 percent).
It's not hugely surprising that the losing candidate in an election would see this kind of drop-off. People don't like voting for losers, and if you look closely at polls after an election, some voters won't even admit to having cast their ballots for the losing candidate. The winning margin for the victor is generally exaggerated.
But against the backdrop of stories about how Trump hasn't delivered what his supporters thought he would, it's notable how much his backers are sticking by their candidate, relative to his opponent. There is basically no real defection to the one candidate who could have delivered a different result.
Of course, you can still be disappointed in Trump and not say you wish you had voted differently. But this poll also reinforces the idea that Trump supporters aren't even disappointed. Not in the least, in fact.
Just 2 percent of those who voted for Trump say he has been a worse president than they expected. Only 1 percent say he has been “much worse,” and 1 percent say he has been “somewhat worse.”
In contrast, 62 percent say he has been better than expected, with one-third (33 percent) saying he has been “much better.”
That's not disillusioned Trump supporters; that's quite the opposite. And we have yet to see a poll that suggests there are a bunch of disgruntled Trump voters out there, stewing over their decision to install a reality show star as president."
Added: "The Post-ABC poll was conducted April 17-20 among a random national sample of 1,004 adults interviewed on cellular and landline phones. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points."
Trump’s first months in office have produced some tangible successes. Beyond the continued enthusiasm of his most loyal supporters, a small majority of Americans see him as a strong leader. A bigger majority approves of his efforts to pressure U.S. companies to keep jobs in this country. Those who say the economy is getting better outnumber those who say it’s getting worse by the biggest margin in 15 years in Post-ABC polling.
