A new Zogby poll gives Donald Trump the highest approval rating he’s achieved since he became president. Trump’s job approval is now at 51 percent, which is higher than 48 percent received at the same time in Obama’s presidency, which was about a year out from his re-election campaign.
If you recall, Obama was elected to a second term.
Millennials aged 18-29 also give President Trump a 51 percent approval rating. 25-34 year olds give him 53 percent, and ages 35-54 give the president a whopping 59 percent.

It seems the results of the Mueller report have helped Trump’s numbers.
“President Trump’s job approval rating has seen a post Mueller report boost! We called it a few weeks ago. But that’s not the complete story as to why the president has reached a peak in his job approval rating. Trump is also riding high on positive economic news-a record high stock market, low unemployment, and solid GDP growth at home.”
“One of the demographics to give Trump a very good job performance rating were self-identified social networkers (59% approve/40% disapprove-people who engage with social media), Zogby added. “The president also made strides with college educated voters (55% approve/45% disapprove), and saw support increase slightly with non-college educated voters (47% approve/50% disapprove).”
Zogby indicated that a strong economy likely also played a significant role in Trump getting such high numbers.

As the 2020 election gets underway, every Democratic challenger will continue to make the case that Donald Trump has done a horrible job in office, hurling every criticism and insult at the president imaginable.
But will it hold up?
It’s much easier to make such a case when the economy s down, which it isn’t at the moment. As Democrats continue to veer further to the extreme Left, are they actually doing President Trump a favor? Making him look like the only sane alternative to a party that openly embraces socialism, late-term abortion, and authoritarianism?
Democrats have a lot of work to do if they want to make any headway in the next election.
President Trump has already been doing the work and has the solid poll numbers to prove it.
