Trump Approval Rating Better Than Obama & Bush Despite Attacks From Media, Dems
President's approval is 'tied for the best of his presidency' according to Gallup
President Donald Trump is enjoying his “highest” approval in the latest Gallup survey, way above four of the previous six presidents, including Barack Obama and George W. Bush, despite continuous attacks from the media and Democrats.
Trump’s approval is “tied for the best of his presidency," according to Gallup.
Trump is a whisker away at 49% from the generally accepted 50%-51% approval political experts consider a lock to win reelection.
This is what the former president's approval was at this stage of their presidencies:
- Obama was at 47% approval
- Bush was at 46% approval
- Bill Clinton was at 55% approval
- George H.W. Bush at 40%
- Ronald Reagan at 52%
- Jimmy Carter at 38%
Obama, George W. Bush, Clinton, and Reagan all won reelection.
Some pollsters say the media’s coverage of Trump has caused a backlash.
48% believe the media has been unfair to Trump, while 42% who said it has been fair, according to the latest McLaughlin & Associates survey.
John McLaughlin told Secrets:
"They play to a small active, deranged, anti-Trump base for clicks on the internet. That’s not journalism. In the process, they disregard facts and destroy their own credibility."
"The establishment media is no longer an independent, nonpartisan check and balance on both major parties. Instead, they are an extension of the liberal Democratic Party."
The latest Economist/YouGov survey revealed just one-third of voters blame Trump for the virus-crushed economy.
