President Donald Trump’s approval with the people for job performance hit 50 percent in a new Rasmussen Reports poll — the same surveying company that correctly predicted the Electoral College winner for the 2016 presidential election, by the way.
Shh, somebody tell the Democrats and their propaganda tools in the mainstream media. It seems they’re still busily reporting how much the American people hate Trump.
They’ve not caught wind of the truth just yet.
And the truth is this: Trump’s approval rating is fully five percentage points higher than the numbers for Barack Obama back in early August of 2010.
Here’s the storyy, right from Rasmussen:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
And more, from Newsweek:
President Donald Trump received an approval rating 5 points higher than his predecessor, Barack Obama, achieved 18 months into his first term in office, according to a new poll released Thursday.
The latest Rasmussen Reports poll, which has often reflected higher approval ratings for Trump than most other major polls, pegged Trump’s latest rating at 50 percent. In August 2010, Obama earned a 45 percent approval rating.
The current president also received a disapproval rating of 49 percent, with 35 percent strongly approving of his job performance and 41 percent strongly disapproving. The poll drew results from 1,500 likely voters between Monday and Wednesday and had a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
The same poll has produced similar results before. This past December, Trump picked up a 46 percent approval rating, with 53 percent disapproving, and those figures mirrored Obama’s results from Rasmussen’s poll in December 2009.
And guess what else?
There’s more bad news for the left. Apparently, Hispanics, in growing numbers, are abandoning the Democratic Party and all its socialist-style principles, and jumping ship to Republicans.
What a boon for this election cycle — for conservatives, that is.
From the Washington Times:
Are Hispanics shifting their allegiances to President Trump?
A recent Harvard/Harris poll recorded a 10-point spike in Hispanic support for Mr. Trump. It hasn’t received much attention from the mainstream media, which is heavily invested in its portrait of the president as an unrepentant — and unpopular — “nativist.”
Coming in the midst of the nationwide controversy over children and families at the U.S.-Mexico border, it suggests that Hispanics may not be the entrenched liberal voting constituency that Democrats so often imagine.
And consider Florida’s hotly-contested Senate race. Republican Gov. Rick Scott is besting his Democratic opponent among Hispanics, according to a Mason-Dixon poll. Historically, a large and aging Cuban-American exile community has given Republicans a decided partisan edge in the Sunshine State. …
Moreover, the economy is booming. And more good news on that front is on the way.
Trump’s recent Gross Domestic Product number was dynamite. And guess what, Dems?
All signs are showing that an even higher GDP is on the way for next quarter.
Don’t be surprised if GDP hits 5 percent.
From Business Insider:
President Donald Trump took a victory lap Friday after the release of a strong second-quarter gross-domestic-product number, and early signs point to the celebration continuing in the third quarter.
The second-quarter reading of 4.1% GDP growth was the highest since 2014, and both the White House and the GOP pointed to it as evidence that Trump’s policies were boosting the US economy. The president also touted the number as proof the economy could achieve his promise of annual GDP growth of over 4%, a claim about which almost all economists were skeptical.
While Friday’s release was substantial, many economists pointed to short-term factors that could fade in future quarters — like a huge boost in soybean exports ahead of Trump’s tariffs, or fiscal stimulus from the federal budget.
But there are early indications that Trump may have reason to boast about the third quarter too.
The Atlanta Federal Reserve’s GDPNow model, which uses available economic data to predict the current quarter’s GDP growth, stood at 5% on Thursday, up slightly from an initial estimate of 4.7%.
The model has a strong track record. But GDPNow isn’t perfect, especially so early in a quarter, and it is subject to updates as more data emerges.
Neil Dutta, the head of US economics at the research firm Renaissance Macro, pointed to data suggesting that the strong initial reading from the Atlanta Fed is likely to hold up.
While Dutta said it was “unlikely that we’ll get 5% for the third quarter,” the economist noted that the average move for the GDPNow reading over the course of a quarter since its inception was a drop of 0.6 percentage points. Based on the initial estimate, that would put the final third-quarter GDPNow estimate at 4.1%, which would be on par with the second quarter and one of the highest postrecession readings.
