Margie Omero of PSB Research has some interesting new polling out on how President Trump's performance in office has compared with voters' expectations.

Three key points, from PSB's online interviews with 800 general population respondents between March 6-9:

  1. "Three of the four traits on which Americans rate [Trump] as doing 'more than they expected' are negative."
  2. "He is particularly weak on 'going too far,' and 'getting sidetracked by things that aren't important.'"
  3. The good news for Trump: especially strong on keeping his promises, improving the economy, getting things done, and keeping America safe.

Why this matters: PSB Research, a Democratic-aligned firm, is measuring changes in Trump's image. They've identified a category of voters they call "Trump Regretters," and are testing what about Trump's presidency moves them. Based on her polling so far, Omero believes that the sense that Trump is "going too far" will make voters regret their vote for Trump.

In her first sit-down interview since being named Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris talked about what she'll do to fight for women if elected VP, and how the Democrats are thinking about voter turnout strategies ahead of November.

What they're saying: "In a Biden-Harris administration women are going to be a priority, understanding that women have many priorities and all of them must be acknowledged," Harris told The 19th*'s Errin Haines-Whack.

Facebook goes after Apple

Facebook is seeking to force a face-off with Apple over its 30% in-app purchase commission fee, which Facebook suggests hurts small businesses struggling to get by during the pandemic.

The big picture: Facebook has never publicly gone after Apple, a key strategic partner, this aggressively. Both companies face antitrust scrutiny, which in Apple's case has centered on the very fee structure Facebook is now attacking.
