Trump Hits Highest Approval on His Handling of Economy of His Presidency



CNN's report:

Trump's previous high mark in CNN polling on handling the economy came in March 2017 when 55% approved. Since then, he's edged above 50% four times, but this is the first time it's been meaningfully over the 50% line.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney spelled out Trump's 2020 economic message on Tuesday -- suggesting voters would still be willing to support the President even if they don't like him personally.

"You hate to sound like a cliche, but are you better off than you were four years ago? It's pretty simple, right? It's the economy, stupid. I think that's easy. People will vote for somebody they don't like if they think it's good for them," Mulvaney said during a talk at the Milken conference in Los Angeles.

Trump improved his standing in most areas:

Trump's approval on health care policy has improved slightly since June 2018, up five points to 38%, his worst approval rating tested in the poll.

Slightly more, 42% approve of how he's handling immigration and foreign affairs, and 39% approve of his handling of race relations.

His approval on race relations has increased since September 2017 -- up 6 percentage points -- but the last poll was taken amidst the protesting in the NFL by kneeling, when Trump called for owners to fire protesting players. His increases since 2017 came largely among conservatives, Republicans and whites.

At the same time, Trump's favorability rating has hit its highest point since the 100-day mark of his presidency: 45% of Americans have a favorable opinion of the President.

There's another interesting poll finding out there, which I think might be a little deceptive, but it's worth mentioning: sixty-nine percent of the public wants the "origins of" the FBI's investigation into the Trump/Russia collusion claim investigated.

So, that sounds like nearly seventy percent of the public wants Obama's and Hillary Clinton's weaponization of the FBI against a rival political candidate investigated.

According to a April 25-28 poll of 1,007 random adults taken for CNN (a far-left fake news outlet), a full 69 percent "think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department's inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans."

Here is my reservations about that finding: People, particularly those on the left, are fucking stupid and ignorant.

Note that the leftwing media has kept the story about the shady origins of the investigation out of the public view, for the most part. A sizable fraction of the public doesn't even know that there are legitimate suspicions about abuse of law enforcement/intelligence resources to spy on and sabotage a competing political campaign.

So when your average Wine Mom (TM) and Zin Femcel (TM) CNN viewer hears a question about investigating "the origins of the Justice Department's inquiry" into Spygate, do you really think they understand what they're being asked about?

Note that eye-popping number: 76% of Democrats want the origins of the US goverment's spy operation against the Trump campaign investigated, which is higher than the number of Republicans (62%).

Why, it's almost as if Democrats are stupid, ignorant, and demon-haunted brutes who don't really understand English and don't keep fully abreast of the news, and got completely confused by the question.

I think they heard "blah blah Investigate Trump blah blah blah" and immediately said "Yeah that, I want that."
