Democrats have spent nearly their entire convention blaming Trump for everything. They’ve used the same tired insults, that he’s racist, sexist, etc., etc. Other than empty, liberal platitudes, they haven’t offered much in the way of policy. It seems their entire party platform is hatred of Trump.
But after all this—how is Trump’s approval doing? After a week of the DNC, it’s taken a sharp turn:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll sponsored by Liberty Nation for Thursday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.
According to Rasmussen, Donald Trump’s approval has risen since the DNC started. It is at 51% today, beating Obama’s approval at the same time in his administration. What’s so telling about this poll is that voters are giving Trump a better approval rating, after the Democrats’ endless hate show.
Major Democrat leaders, including Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Kamala Harris spent the week slamming Trump. They spent much of their time and energy during their convention, not talking about their plans, but talking about how bad President Trump is at his job. Obama even accused Trump of doing nothing for the American people and only helping himself and his friends.
Gee, that sounds a lot like what Obama did during his eight years in office, not Trump.
It seems that all the free publicity the DNC is giving Trump is only helping him. From all appearances, this odd “virtual-only” convention is not exciting their base. And regular Americans are totally unimpressed (if they’re even watching). Some reports reveal that ratings for the event are markedly lower than the 2016 convention. Those that are watching are apparently more approving of Trump.
So, the Democrats are doing a better job helping Trump than themselves. You have to be particularly bad at politics to accomplish that!
It’s also worth noting that, as if often the case, Trump’s approval is higher than Obama’s at the same time in his presidency. That’s with endless negative coverage from a MSM run by Democrats.
Do you think Trump is on his way to a lead in the 2020 polls?
- After a week of DNC speeches and events, Donald Trump’s approval rating has risen.
- Trump now stands at 51% approval, despite the many negative speeches about him at the DNC.
- His approval is actually higher than Obama’s at the same time in his presidency.
