BREAKING: Huge Change for Donald Trump’s Approval Rating
Gage Skidmore / CCL
Amidst the scandal and tragedy engulfing the Beltway, there’s one report that’s apt to give the President a much-needed morale boost.
Likewise, over 30% say they strongly approve of his performance.
The President’s surge no doubt has to do in part with the attempt on Representative Steve Scalise’s life by a Bernie Sanders supporter, as evidenced in the survey:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% of American Adults believe the shooting incident was the result of political anger in this country. Only 28% think it was a random act of violence by an unstable person. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
Sympathy for the GOP may be growing as voters realize the deadly toxicity of liberals’ extreme anti-Trump rhetoric.
Man of the hour
Commentators also widely applauded the President for his magnanimous response to the shooting, including reliably Democratic ones.
John Cassidy of The New Yorker:
Trump had followed protocol and done what a President is supposed to do in a crisis: act as a unifier.
Jennifer Rubin wrote in The Washington Post:
I was impressed with President Trump’s well-crafted remarks.
And Stephen Colbert said on “The Late Show“:
I want to say thank you to the congressional leadership, and to the President, for responding to this attack of terror in a way that gives us hope that whatever our differences, we will always be the United States of America.
The greatest jobs president God ever created?
Plummeting unemployment is also contributing to Americans’ growing confidence in this Administration. Again, here’s Rasmussen:
As the unemployment rate drops to its lowest level in 10 years, optimism among voters that the U.S. economy is fair has soared to new highs.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. economy today, generally speaking, is at least somewhat fair. That’s up from 45% the last time the question was asked in October and is at its highest level since Rasmussen Reports first asked the question in December 2012.
The magic touch
President Trump has truly earned his boost and he has every right to celebrate. However, he should remember this formula: personal magnanimity combined with steady economic growth.
He doesn’t need a constant, self-destructive sequence of tweets to reach the American people. As more and more Americans go back to work, they will know just who to thank.
