Gallup: Trump Approval Rating Higher Than Four of the Last Six Presidents, Including Bush and Obama

This can't just be an outlier poll at this point.

At 49%, Trump is a hair away from the generally accepted 50%-51% approval political experts consider a lock to win reelection. Both Obama and Bush were at 50% approval on their reelection days.

At this stage of their presidencies, Obama was at 47% approval, and Bush was at 46% approval. Also, at this stage of their presidencies and heading into the reelection, Bill Clinton was at 55% approval, George H.W. Bush at 40%, Ronald Reagan at 52%, and Jimmy Carter at 38%.

CNN also found that Trump's approval rating was at the highest levels they'd ever found -- from the moment of his inauguration -- but chose, for reasons no one can even guess at, to completely hide that finding from the public.

The CNN poll found that Biden was ahead of Trump nationally 51-46, which, you know, who cares. But meanwhile Trump was even further ahead of Biden in the swing states which will actually decide the election, 52-45.

In the new poll, 51% of registered voters nationwide back Biden, while 46% say they prefer Trump, while in the battlegrounds, 52% favor Trump and 45% Biden.
