I love when I hear members of Congress bash Trump for his low approval rating. I love it because they seem to be completely uninformed about what their own approval rating is.
President Trumpâ€™s approval numbers may be under water, but heâ€™s significantly more popular than House Speaker Paul Ryan or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
AÂ new pollÂ byÂ The EconomistÂ finds Trump with a 39 percent â€œfavorableâ€ rating, with 23 percent holding a â€œvery favorableâ€ view of the president, and 16 percent â€œsomewhat favorable.â€
Forty-five percent say they have a â€œvery unfavorableâ€ view of Trump.
While Democrats and some Congressional Republicans may be reassured by Trumpâ€™s relatively low numbers, leaders of both parties fair significantly worse in the poll taken August 27-29.
House Speaker Paul Ryan is held in a â€œvery favorableâ€ light by only 6 percent of poll respondents, and a combined 26 percent view him positively.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fairs even worse.
A combined 18 percent of Americans view him favorably.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosiâ€™s numbers arenâ€™t any better than Ryanâ€™s.
Only 7 percent hold a â€œvery favorableâ€ view of her, while 19 percent hold a â€œsomewhat favorableâ€ view, totaling 26 percent.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumerâ€™s ratings are a little better â€” heâ€™s viewed favorably by a combined 29 percent of respondents.
The poll also finds only 8 percent of Americans approve of how Congress is handling its job, with a meager 3 percent saying they â€œstrongly approve.â€
Only 7 percent of Republicans â€œstrongly approveâ€ of the job the Republican-led Congress is doing, and a combined 20 percent do so.
So, what do these numbers show us? These numbers show us that the American people have very little trust for the government as it curreblty stands. They are tired of the corruption in Washington and the lack of results out of Washington. This is amazing news for Trump. Trump’s entire agenda rests on who is in congress. With the American people not satisfied with the current elected officials they will turn to new people. Those people will be Pro-Trump Republicans. Trump has brilliantly laid out his strategy for pushing his agenda for the long haul. It’s pretty simple, he puts blame on congress, gets the never-Trumpers voted out and gets his people put in. Once that happens nothing will stop Trump from pushing his agenda and truly Making America Great Again.
