Polls continue to be bad for Trump and Republicans. Of course, he lies about them.

The shutdown has hurt the GOP. Americans viewed the parties equally before the shutdown and now Dems are viewed more favorably than GOP who have dropped 8 points https://t.co/uQw4bQSjDw

Who came out of shutdown stronger? In @QuinnipiacPoll voters prefer @SpeakerPelosi over Trump on issues that matter to them by 26 points for 18-29; 13 points independents; 11 points college plus whites. Its 80 points among African-Americans & 35 w/Hispanics.

Trump is telling his "four women" "duct tape" "backs or cars or trucks" "desert areas" human trafficking tale again. Again, human trafficking experts tells me they've never heard of this happening; just isn't how it usually works. https://t.co/ZQAF6bvbKV

#Trump is claiming:
1. Mexicans have amazing cars, better than the Border Patrol.
2. Women are crossing border bound up with tape.
3. Prayer rugs left in the desert.

POTUS also told his tale of duct-taped women again, but in tonight's version there was also electrical tape, and he described it as "blue" at one point, per two attendees. One attendee thought blue was intended as a joke.

In 2010, Americans preferred the GOP to Dems on "border security" by 20 points.
Before the shutdown, the GOP led by double digits.
Today, Democrats lead Trump by 9 points.https://t.co/pWsPVYGvBr

Trump should end his shutdown now!
CBS poll: 70% Americans said that the issue of a border wall is not worth a government shutdown.
70% of Americans rarely agree on anything, and yet Trump and McConnell are still hurting millions of people, putting us in danger, risking a recession.
Open the damn government.
— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) January 24, 2019
This is not winning.
The majority blames him for the shutdown.
More people oppose the wall than support it.
The majority doesn’t want a shutdown over the wall.

Would you say you trust what Donald Trump says more, about the same, or less than you trusted what previous presidents said while in office?

As you may know, there is a proposal to substantially expand the wall along the US border with Mexico. …

Trump is touting a poll that shows that 45% of Americans strongly disapprove of him, compared to 24% who strongly approve; that 57% of Americans say they definitely will not vote for Trump in 2020; and that 43% of *Republicans* want him to face a GOP primary challenger in 2020. https://t.co/hOai4tQiMF

An even worse poll for Trump, from CBS:
Trump's approval sinks to 36%.
71% say Trump's wall is not worth shutting down government over.

This to my knowledge is the first (at least "high quality") poll that directly pitted Pelosi and Trump. Good for the Speaker and not so good for the President. pic.twitter.com/wIGCH07to0
