Elder Patriot – The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.
This news has the inside-the-beltway anti-Trumpers, who have lorded over us since Ronald Reagan left town, flummoxed and in fear that Trump has ended their deathgrip on the exfiltration of America’s wealth.
While reaping trillions of dollars in downstream benefits, Tom Donahue, the Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, the Koch brothers, foreign governments, multinational corporations, and international bankers, have thrown billions of dollars into controlling the legislative agenda over the past thirty years.
Trump is changing all of that. And his brash, in your face, but successful management style has resulted in a level of personal economic optimism for long-suffering American workers.
Americans’ optimism about their personal finances has climbed to levels not seen in more than 16 years, with 69% now saying they expect to be financially better off “at this time next year.”
This, as much as anything else explains why, despite a government shutdown that the media hung around his neck like a noose, an increasing number of Americans continue warming to the president.
This despite a two-and-a-half year assault on his character by a media intent on convincing Americans he’s a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a xenophobe, an adulterer, and all-around bad guy.
This despite the CIA, DOJ, FBI, Hillary’s State Department, and finally a special counsel charade that was intent on convincing you the man is a Russian asset. Another epic media fail.
Where a significant portion of Americans have allowed themselves to buy into the Russia hoax and continue to view Trump as detestable, the important fact is Trump has passed the approval level necessary for re-election.
Where those Americans hate Trump, the majority now view President Trump as a hard-nosed, red-blooded, blue collar billionaire, with a bat in his hand fighting tooth and nail for us.
As far as Trump supporters were concerned, the shutdown was about the wall. Trump’s intransigence has been viewed as a sign that he’s willing to go to any lengths to protect everyday Americans, their families, and their communities.
Don’t believe me? Trump was at 43% approval when the government shut down. He’s gained 9 points in a matter of weeks. How to explain.
The State of the Union and the fact that the overriding concerns for most Americans -the so-called kitchen table issues – is their personal financial well being and the safety of their families.
Donald Trump has stood firm in defense of both of these.
Trump has stood like a principled boulder against the onslaught of hate, vitriol, and legislative skulduggery of both parties. The interference of foreign governments. And, he has literally withstood and reverse the narrative on the corrupt mainstream media.
With both the House and Senate committees having concluded that there was never collusion between Trump and Russia, and with special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly wrapping up his investigation, it appears the wind will soon be at Trump’s back.
Americans have found their leader.
