President Trump’s fiery press conference this week has led to perhaps the most public pushback against his rhetoric so far, but his loyal base still doesn’t seem to be abandoning ship. On Aug. 10, Trump’s Twitter handle, @realDonaldTrump, had a 36.3 percent positive score. On Saturday, Aug. 12, when Trump blamed “all sides” after the death of Heather Heyer, who was part of the counter protest against white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, his score dropped to 31.7 percent positive. It remained in that range for two more days, and curiously didn’t jump up on Monday, Aug. 14, when he finally called out white supremacists by name. In fact, it wasn’t until the next day, when he was back to blaming “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville, that he received a three-point bump in positive scores. In total, he’s about two percentage points down from a week ago and is quickly returning to where he was before—deeply unpopular but maintaining a strong core of support. His Twitter handle has dropped below 30 percent positive just twice in the last 90 days. --Alex Shultz
