The polls vs. Trump

Three recent polls to note on President Trump:

  1. Monmouth University: 52% disapprove vs. 39% approve
  2. ABC/Washington Post: 58% disapprove vs. 36% approve
  3. Bloomberg: 56% disapprove vs. 40% approve

The number to watch: 41% in the Monmouth poll support impeaching the president, compared to 24% for Richard Nixon at the same point of his presidency.

What you missed
  1. Biden spits fire: the former VP has an op-ed today at Washington Post, saying the GOP's effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act is enough to "make your blood boil." Top quotes.
  2. The new subprime: $26 billion in new subprime auto bonds were sold in 2016. Details.
  3. Speaking of buying stuff: 44% of Americans have regrets about buying their current home or the buying process. Numbers.
  4. Blue Apron spooked: After Amazon trademarked a slogan that suggests it's about to enter that market. Uh oh.
  5. The next big short: It's in retail, according to one hedge funder.
