If you watch CNN or MSNBC, you might believe that Trump is terribly positioned for reelection.
That’s the narrative they push out all day, every day.
But it isn’t true, in fact it’s not even close.
According to Gallup, Trump is enjoying a higher approval rating than Obama or George W. Bush had at the same point in their first terms.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Trump approval at Gallup ‘highest,’ better than Obama, Bush
Despite a wave of critical news coverage and Democratic catcalls, President Trump sits at his “highest” approval in the latest Gallup survey, and above where four of the last six presidents, including Barack Obama and George W. Bush, were at this point of the first term.
After two weeks of bad news on the coronavirus and economic front, Trump maintained his 49% approval rating, and his disapproval crept up just 1 point, to 48% in the Gallup survey of adults, a broad test.
Gallup said that Trump’s approval is “tied for the best of his presidency.”
At 49%, Trump is a hair away from the generally accepted 50%-51% approval political experts consider a lock to win reelection. Both Obama and Bush were at 50% approval on their reelection days.
At this stage of their presidencies, Obama was at 47% approval, and Bush was at 46% approval. Also, at this stage of their presidencies and heading into the reelection, Bill Clinton was at 55% approval, George H.W. Bush at 40%, Ronald Reagan at 52%, and Jimmy Carter at 38%.
You won’t hear any of this on CNN.
Surprised? @realDonaldTrump approval at his Gallup ‘highest,’ better than Obama, Bush, HW Bush, Carter at this stage of the first term. Pollster @jmclghln says the 'anti-Trump' media has lost credibility in coverage of prez. https://t.co/ReNdKYAJI0 pic.twitter.com/QKP1KspiQu
