Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh shared several polls showing President Donald Trump surging since Democrats began their push for impeachment.
“Schiff had all the witnesses, and they don’t have any facts,” he explained. “It’s been going on since October.”
And it’s only making life harder on their party in the upcoming election …
“In an ABC News/Washington Post poll, Trump has surged by double digits in head-to-head matchups against his competitors,” Limbaugh relayed.
“Against the four most likely winners of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, in October Trump was down 56 to 39 against [Biden],” he continued. “As of now, the gap has closed 13 points. Trump is down four points to [Biden], 50 to 46.”
Limbaugh further noted that the polls show Trump closing the gap between him and “crazy Bernie [Sanders]” – from 14 points to just two.

A Record Obama Would Envy
Limbaugh expanded on the matter, touting a recent Gallup poll, as covered here at The Political Insider, which indicates satisfaction with race relations and the position of minorities in America have significantly increased since President Trump took office.
Gallup discovered a trend demonstrating double-digit improvements in several categories – including how Americans view the nation’s economy, security from terrorism, military strength and the state of race relations in our country.
The position of blacks and other racial minorities in the nation also rose 9 percent since Trump’s first day in office.
The President is making headway with minorities, something that could seal his victory in 2020.
Gallup reveals that in general, Americans haven’t been this satisfied with the direction of the country in nearly 15 years.
The survey finds that Americans are overwhelmingly more satisfied with the state of the country than they were in the final days of the Obama-Biden presidency:
- 68% of Americans are satisfied with the U.S. economy, up 22 points since Trump took office.
- 68% of Americans are satisfied with the nation’s security from terrorism, up 18 points since Trump took office.
- 81% of Americans are satisfied with the nation’s military strength and preparedness, up 15 points since Trump took office.

Limbaugh explained exactly why race relations actually deteriorated under Obama, America’s first black President.
“No criticism of the president was going to be permitted. Even warranted policy criticism would not be permitted because it was going to be called racist,” Limbaugh elucidated. “So race relations got far more friction with Obama in the White House.”
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has, in the past, concurred that any media narrative that race relations are actually worse under President Trump than they were in the past is ridiculous.
“It sure doesn’t feel worse than when I grew up in Jim Crow Alabama. So let’s drop this notion that we’re worse race relations today than we were in the past,” Rice asserted in an interview with NBC’s ‘Today’ show.
Polling at the time of Obama’s election showed just how the former President was given a lot of credit to work with when it came to race relations and how he utterly squandered it by the time he left office.
One such survey a month prior to the 2016 election showed a majority of Americans believed race relations had worsened under Obama. 54% said the divide had grown worse, while a very low 16% said it had gotten better.
By contrast, in May of 2009, mere months into Obama’s first term, 32% of all Americans believed race relations had improved, while only 6% said they had gotten worse.
That is a massive 64-point turnaround. Obama took the racial harmony that led to his historic election and turned it into a wedge that divided the entire nation.
Just another mess President Trump is cleaning up to keep America great.
