Trump’s Rasmussen Approval Rating Hits 50 Percent

For the first time polling since May, a recent Rasmussen Poll indicates President Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 50 percent. That is five points higher than former President Barack Obama’s approval rating at the same time in 2010.

Since May, the President has seen a higher approval number at 50 percent than his unfavorable rating of 49 percent. Not surprisingly, the “strongly disapprove” rating is 35 percent. That remains very consistent each polling. It is exactly the percentage that Rasmussen predicts from people who will never change their minds no matter what.

Liberals are in a state of shock. Whether they thought by this point in Trump’s presidency the fake Russian collusion would catch on or he would be impeached is anyone’s guess. But the continued record unemployment for African-Americans, Hispanics and women is driving the left crazy. They are hoping for a recession or anything to jolt the man they hate with passion. America be damned, they hate Trump because their power is gone.

Nevertheless, the ‘hate Trump 24/7’ crowd needs to face reality; America is warming to this complicated man. Trump’s approval rating was stagnant at 44 percent on July 22nd but has seen a boost in his numbers since.

Remarkably, even with the media’s portrayal of Trump as a heathen for personally separating parents and children at the Mexican border, his 50 percent approval comes in large part from Hispanics. The left is ripping their hair out since they consider people of color to be in their back pocket.

Even though the enabling media has pulled out all of the stops to manufacture a crisis with immigration policy that is the law, Trump manages a ten-point spike from Hispanics. The president is even ahead of the 46.1 percent he received during the 2016 presidential election.

Meanwhile, Trump is way ahead of Obama’s 45 percent on August 2nd, 2010. Again, the media and the left are beside themselves. What more can they conjure up to derail this man? Next attempt will be the so-called trade war where the left thinks they can conquer the Midwest farmers. Good luck with that!

Media coverage of President Trump is overwhelmingly negative as the left dreams of yesteryear and their long gone idol. Don’t count on the media to become impartial journalists anytime soon, but the American people are beginning to see Trump is right about the fake media factor on CNN, MSNBC and many other networks and newspapers.

It is now approximately three months to the midterm elections. As the far left takes control of the Democratic Party, the hysteria becomes full throttle. As more left candidates tout socialism as the answer, the Democrats slowly sink into oblivion.
