Trump has been under a relentless assault by the US media for three years, which constantly portrays his administration as “in chaos” and constantly on the brink of collapse. Yet somehow, Trump has started to rack up the policy successes and his approval rating keeps increasing. Right now, he’s about where Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan were at this point in their respective presidencies:
President Trump’s overall job rating is holding steady, buoyed by a record number approving of his handling of the economy. A Fox News poll released Thursday also finds that most like that he’s meeting with North Korea.
Forty-five percent of voters approve of the president’s performance, while 51 percent disapprove. It was 44-53 percent in April. Trump’s highest approval, 48 percent, came in February 2017, soon after taking office.
A strong jobs report released June 1 showed the U.S. with a seasonally adjusted 3.8 percent unemployment rate. The president seems to get some credit for that. His handling of the economy brings his most positive job ratings, as a record 52 percent approve, while 41 percent disapprove.
Optimism is increasing on North Korea, as more voters now think it could be convinced to give up its nuclear weapons. Twenty-eight percent feel that way, up 12 points from 16 percent three months ago (March 2018). Still, a majority, 60 percent, says North Korea won’t let go of its nukes.
The left has been fixated on preventing Trump from being “normalized” and yet the polls show trump is pretty normal at this point, about where Reagan and Obama were. The media’s power was already shown to be in decay when the left lost the 2016 elections, and this is further evidence of that decay. They have not been able to stop the Trump agenda and they haven’t been able to torpedo his presidency.
This is a far cry from the left of the 1960s and 1970s which won the Vietnam War for communism and managed to remove a sitting president. The hysterical volume and tone they are using (and its utter failure to make an impact on the American people suggests they’ve hit the end of the road in terms of influence.
