Trump Pounces to 47% Approval Rate in Harris Poll;
Seizes 52% of Likely Voters in Rasmussen Poll

Maybe America didn't like the Women in White sitting on their hands when Trump mentioned other people finding jobs, but then springing to their feet and childishly dancing around when he mentioned that they themselves had new jobs in Congress.

President Trump's job approval rating increased following Tuesday's State of the Union Address, the latest Hill-HarrisX poll found.

Forty-seven percent of registered voters contacted Thursday and Friday said that they approved of Trump's job performance, an increase of three points from the 44 percent who said the same last week.

Initial polls showed many who watched Trump's address liked it.

A CBS News-YouGov poll conducted the night of the speech found that 76 percent of respondents who watched said they approved of it. As would be expected, GOP respondents who viewed the address approved of it but almost one-third of Democratic viewers contacted for the survey said they approved of it.

Rasmussen's numbers are even better, but they usually are better.

That number is his highest since March 6, 2017, less than seven weeks after he took office. It has been even longer since Trump's 'strongly approve' and 'strongly disapprove' numbers weren't under water. They were even at 39 per cent on Monday...

Asked what Monday's numbers mean, a senior Democratic House aide confided on background: 'I don't know yet if it's horrible, but it sure isn't good.

There might be a downside here, if Trump isn't willing to put his job approval in danger again by shutting down the government or declaring a national emergency to fund the wall.
