President Trump’s approval rating was just 43% at the time of the government partial shutdown. But his SOTU speech was so great a poll taken during the three days after the address, his approval rating climbed 9 points to 52%.
That’s his highest approval in 23 months. With the Democrats wanting to kill babies who were already born and trying to release 8,300 criminal illegal aliens onto the streets, not to mention the vast antisemitic rhetoric coming from the Democrats, his stock could soar even higher.
Considering that 92% of all stories about Trump are negative, 52% is a great rating. No one likes Trump except the voters.
Donald Trump‘s job approval rating among likely U.S. voters hit 52 per cent on Monday in a daily tracking poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports, the polling organization he uses most frequently to promote himself.
That number is his highest since March 6, 2017, less than seven weeks after he took office. It has been even longer since Trump’s ‘strongly approve’ and ‘strongly disapprove’ numbers weren’t under water. They were even at 39 per cent on Monday.
Monday’s numbers came from surveys conducted during the three weekdays following the president’s State of the Union address. It’s not unusual for presidents to get a polling ‘bump’ after the high-profile annual address.
Trump could use the groundswell now more than ever: A Friday deadline looms for the White House and congressional Democrats to hash out a budget deal to avoid a second government shutdown.
Asked what Monday’s numbers mean, a senior Democratic House aide confided on background: ‘I don’t know yet if it’s horrible, but it sure isn’t good.’
