I'm not surprised, since you have to dig for his approval ratings.

Say, is it possible to recall a POTUS?

It's called impeachment. I know he'll do something impeachable in these next four years, hell his refusal to divest raises the emoluments issue and it's literally day one. Not to mention his complete disdain for rules and norms. But the GOP will never impeach him, even if it does come out that he was working with Putin and peeing on Russian prostitutes.
Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?

But can the voters call an election and boot him out?

That can get him impeached as the GOP is nothing if not hypocritical about sex.  Especially when he starts to become politically inconvenient.

Ironbite-like....now.

If enough evidence comes out the dems could look into impeachment if and when they take back the senate and house. With the way things are going to go that might happen sooner than later.

GOP will impeach him sooner just to score points with the electorate and not get squished in the mid-terms.

Ironbite-we're in for a rough 3 years though.

Recall is, AFAIK, the exception in representative democracies, not the rule.

Also, so many Democratic Senators are up for re-election in 2018 that they literally cannot get to the 67 seats necessary to remove Trump from office, or override a veto. (They can't even get to the 60 they'd need to break a filibuster.)

EDIT: Spelling.

Not good, mostly because I think he'd ragebomb something before ragequitting. The US military is the ultimate penis extension, after all.

Not before the damage is done.

A figure like Trump is politically useful for them at least in the short term, they can do all of the unpopular stuff-like gutting ACA without a replacement and blame him later when public opinion turns. The things that will negatively affect their base, the small business owners farmers and disenchanted rust belters are things the GOP desperately wants. Trump is the perfect fall guy.

Of course Trump is just as likely to blame them when it all turns to shit. What a happy, fun bunch.

Donald Trump's approval rating according to a recent Quinnipiac poll: 37%.

George W. Bush's approval rating after Hurricane Katrina: 43%.

I thought we learned from the election itself that the polls are just flat out wrong.

The national results, and the swing state results, were within the margin of error, if at the upper end of that for Trump.
