Despite endless negative press and being attacked by most on cable news, many Americans approve of President Donald Trump’s job performance in office.
According to Pennlive, an accumulation of polling this year shows that the president is only getting stronger with Americans, which will be critical ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
Here’s more from the Pennlive report:
Day after day, the biased press publish an endless array of news reports and opinion columns intended to attack President Trump’s policies and portray him as a failure.
This narrative, however, is utterly misleading — and the president set the record straight in his State of the Union address, which received an overwhelmingly positive response from the public.
According to a poll conducted over the three days following the speech, President Trump’s popularity soared to its highest level since shortly after he took office, with 52 percent of likely voters approving of his performance in the White House.
The Rasmussen poll, which is updated daily based on a three-day rolling average of survey responses, showed that the president’s approval rating jumped by an impressive nine percentage points in just over one week.
By contrast, Obama’s approval rating at the same point in his presidency was at 50 percent — 2 points lower than President Trump’s post-SOTU popularity.
The impressive spike in the president’s approval rating is all the more stunning in light of the relentless mainstream media attacks on his administration, which reached a fever pitch during the partial government shutdown that ended Jan. 25.
Instead of focusing on the remarkable performance of the U.S. economy, for instance, the liberal press repeatedly warned that the shutdown would devastate the economy, even as the economic data continued to show strong job growth throughout the impasse.
Making matters even worse for Democrats, the president’s approval rating with Hispanics has soared to a record high.
A recent poll from Fox News revealed that Hispanic voters are supporting Trump in large numbers amid his push to enforce stricter immigration policies and secure the U.S.-Mexico border.
Latinos are increasingly rallying for President Trump, according to data from a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll. The poll notes that 50 percent of Latinos surveyed approve of the job Trump is doing, a 19-point increase from December of last year.
Republican strategist Gus Portella said Saturday on Fox & Friends that the improvement is “very important.”
“This president has done historic strides to help the Latino community,” he said, noting the low unemployment of Latinos under Trump.
The poll also noted that 63 percent of all adults surveyed want to see elected officials make compromises.
That’s absolutely terrible news for Democrats, and Trump took to Twitter to tout the poll.
