Donald Trump’s poll averages are rising after his first major legislative win.
President Trump is starting 2018 with a polling pop, called the “best in a long time.”
The average of several polls finds the president’s approval at 43 percent and Gallup has him at his highest point since mid-July.
In a review of the polls, Clarus Research’s Ron Faucheux wrote in his daily subscription blog, “Looks like President Trump starts the new year with the benefit of some holiday cheer. Today’s average is based on three polls, ranging from 40 percent (Gallup) to 45 percent (Rasmussen). Trump’s disapproval rating averages 54 percent today, which is 9 points higher than his approval rating. This is the best he’s done in a long time, although it’s worth noting that his approval rating still falls short of the 46 percent of the vote he received in the last election.”
And Gallup this morning said, “Trump’s weekly job approval rose to 39 percent for the week ending Dec. 31, his highest weekly average since mid-July.”
This is amazing news for Donald Trump. Since he was inaugurated he has dealt with a media attack like no other President has ever had to deal with. They have come out with stories that were blatantly false and helped cook up Russian hysteria trying to delegitimize him. That has almost worn off. I am not the bigest fan of polls but this is still something Donald Trump should note. It is clear that when he passes major parts of his agenda the American people take notice. Trump will likely never be a “popular” President according to the polls but if he can rise to near 50% he will be in a great political position.
