For almost two years mainstream media and liberals have attacked now President Donald Trump as someone who could never succeed.
They laughed and were wrong when they said he couldn’t handle a political run, said he couldn’t win the Republican nomination, said he couldn’t handle presidential debates and said he couldn’t win the election.
So-called political experts and their liberal lackeys said emphatically that Trump would never be president under any circumstance.
President Trump proved them all wrong.
He hasn’t stopped there as he plows through actions his first week in office to set the country along the path he proclaimed throughout his campaign. What he’s accomplishing is resonating well with the American people, according to recent public indicators.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-three percent (43%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 42% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 33% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +9.
Trump is doing well for someone who, according to radical liberals, would lead the country into dire consequences from day one.
Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters think the country is heading in the right direction, the highest level of confidence in four years. It’s important to note, though, that this survey wrapped up the night before Trump’s inauguration.
Voters overwhelmingly followed Trump’s first day in office, but Republicans were a lot happier with it than others were.
Some media commentators were highly critical of Trump’s use of the phrase “America First” in his inaugural address to describe his trade and foreign policy agenda, but most voters continue to feel the new commander in chief is on the right track.
Voters don’t like free trade deals, and Trump mirrors public opinion in exercising his power.
Voters are more comfortable than ever with the amount of power the president now holds.
Trump on Monday withdrew the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a mega-trade deal involving 11 Pacific Rim countries, saying it is bad for America. Just 27% of voters have a favorable opinion of the TPP.
Rasmussen Reports is a pioneer in polling techniques to gauge how well politicians are doing in their jobs.
Trump has bolted from the gate in his new role as president, and any success he achieves will be met with vitriol from the jealous, vindictive left.
Liberals still can’t get it through their thick, biased heads that Trump won and the country will move forward in a direction where he leads.
They want a rebellion, and rebellion is staring them down from his seat in the Oval Office.
