Trump keeps winning and the Democrats are getting very nervous. Political numbers go up and down during a presidential term.
But what has Democrats freaking out is that most of Trump’s dips have more to do with style than policy.
Trump’s dips are self-inflicted and happen when his style turns people off, but it is shortlived and just related to the event in question, not the underlying policy. When the dust settles his numbers always go back up.
This terrifies the Democrats. As it should because after two years of the media relentlessly bashing Trump, most Americans still agree with his policies.
The Democrats have tried to destroy Trump for two years, they have used every single trick in the book and his numbers are surging.
They have to be losing their minds at the DNC because nothing works to hurt Trump. All Trump did was end the shutdown deliver a well-received SOTU that appealed to everyone and his numbers surged past Obama’s.
When he does that, when the substance outshines the style, the base expands and the Republicans and independents come home and he is nearly unbeatable because most people agree with his policies.
From The Gateway Pundit: President Trump’s approval rating reached 52% on Monday following the State of the Union Address last Tuesday.
Barack Obama’s approval rating was at 50% at a similar point in his presidency.
This is also despite national mainstream media reporting negatively on the highly successful President Trump 92% of the time.
Barack Obama had a cake walk with the media.
From The Daily Mail: Donald Trump’s job approval rating among likely U.S. voters hit 52 per cent on Monday in a daily tracking poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports, the polling organization he uses most frequently to promote himself.
That number is his highest since March 6, 2017, less than seven weeks after he took office. It has been even longer since Trump’s ‘strongly approve’ and ‘strongly disapprove’ numbers weren’t under water. They were even at 39 per cent on Monday.
Overall, 47 per cent of likely voters disapprove of Trump’s Oval Office performance. That’s a low water mark since November 2, 2018.
Monday’s numbers came from surveys conducted during the three weekdays following the president’s State of the Union address. It’s not unusual for presidents to get a polling ‘bump’ after the high-profile annual address.
Trump could use the groundswell now more than ever: A Friday deadline looms for the White House and congressional Democrats to hash out a budget deal to avoid a second government shutdown.
Asked what Monday’s numbers mean, a senior Democratic House aide confided on background: ‘I don’t know yet if it’s horrible, but it sure isn’t good.’
The White House, however, seemed pleased. Trump himself tweeted an image of this story at the top of The Drudge Report, an influential news aggregation website.
