But if Trump can't accomplish anything - if he can't repeal Obamacare - the base is going to flee.
"Somebody needs to just rein him in", she said.
Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat and critic of Trump, said Monday that Trump's last visit had caused minimal disruption. He contended that political rallies he has held in several states he won in last year's election show his continuing strength. A batch of new polling data supports that conclusion. They forced Trump to sign a Russian Federation sanctions bill into law last week, and the Senate left town but technically stayed in session so that Trump can't fire, then self-replace, his attorney general and reshape the special counsel investigation. Trump's base turned out enthusiastically on the basis of economic angst, not "values".
It may seem odd for Trump's administration to pay someone to find positive stories from media outlets that Trump has repeatedly disparaged and told his supporters to ignore-not to mention helping to create a concerning anti-press environment in the United States.
But that shield now features major cracks. Of the four in 10 voters who said the most important thing to them was a candidate who could bring change to Washington, Trump took 82% to 14% for Clinton. And a stumbling president who the Boy Scouts of America had to distance themselves from not once, but twice in the span of six days.
If Trump scaled back his tweeting - or avoided days like Monday where he spends a significant chunk of time settling petty scores with other politicians via Twitter - his numbers would nearly certainly improve, according to the CNN poll.
A 46-45 split of respondents said they approved of Trump's handling of the economy, even though confidence in their financials went up five points to 69 percent.
Not surprisingly, just 24% of Americans say they trust the information coming out of the White House, while 30% say they trust nothing coming out of the White House.
His strong approval rating among Republicans has plummeted to 59 percent from 73 percent in February, the poll shows. According to Gallup, Obama's approval fell to a low of 72 percent among fellow partisans in early October 2011.
But according to a poll this month by Quinnipiac University, Trump's approval rating has dropped to a new record low, even among his core demographic: white noncollege educated voters.
Mr. Trump easily won the crowded New Hampshire primary in the 2016 GOP nomination race, helping him rebound from a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses to Sen.
