THIS JUST IN: the Trump train is chugging right along.
Trump’s 44 percent approval rating matches those of former Presidents Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan in June of 2010 and 1982, respectively, midterm years in which their parties suffered significant electoral defeats in the House.
Among those polled, 60 percent said they are satisfied with the U.S. economy and 44 percent said Trump deserves credit for its strength, a four-point increase in that number over a year ago.
Well, now, that’s not what the media tells us on a regular basis, is it?
What is interesting, though, is that this enthusiasm level does not extend to the rest of the members of the president’s party.
But despite the credit that many of those polled said the president deserves for the economy’s strength, that recognition did not appear to translate into enthusiasm for the GOP in the upcoming midterm elections. Forty-eight percent of those polled said they would be more likely to support a candidate who promises to provide a check on the president while just 23 percent said they would be less likely to support such a candidate.
Fifty-three percent said they would be more likely to support a candidate who does not support Trump’s positions more than 90 percent of the time, while just 31 percent said they would be less likely to do so.
The people seem to be leery about voting for those who give lip service to the president and his plans and then turn around and politically stab him in the back.
The media has never understood that the American people do not like to be double-crossed.
No wonder so many Americans are no longer watching or listening to them.
