Listen to the mainstream media, and you’d think everyone and their mother is opposed to Donald Trump and every single thing he’s done since taking office.
But if you look at the polling on Trump’s approval rating and for the policies he’s done thus far, and you’ll find a huge majority of people approve. The most popular policies thus far have to do with illegal immigration, squashing regulation, and ending Obamacare. Even the majority of Hispanics agree with Trump’s immigration policies according to one poll.
Even bigger news is Trump’s overall approval rating. Right now, he’s at 55%! Could you even have guessed that based on the vile hatred spewed by the liberal media?
So what explains the divergence between the media’s reporting and public opinion? To a large extent: reality. Nobody is believing the chicken littles in the media – and if it weren’t for them, the numbers would be even more slanted in favor of Trump.
Rasmussen was one of the few polls that showed Trump and Hillary polling within the margin of error before the election. On the day before the election, they had Hillary ahead by two points, but a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percent. So unlike other biased polling outlets, Rasmussen wasn’t totally blindsided by Trump’s victory.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-five percent (45%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 36% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2. (see trends).
The Rasmussen poll is in line with what we’d expect Trump’s net favorability to be, given how he polls on individual issues.
For some context, Barack Obama averaged 47.9 percent approval on Gallup during his eight years in office. That shouldn’t be a hard average to beat!
At the end of the day, there’s a reason so few people believe the liberal media. They don’t accurately reflect reality.
