Most people agree that President Trump’s State of the Union Address was a smash hit.
His no-nonsense, direct approach to the American people resonated with many. It even changed people’s opinions of the man, including his long-time critics.
Couple that with the amazing successes of last year, people are starting to question their original opinions about the president. The tax cut bill has opened the eyes of many Americans. They are discovering just how much money they are keeping as a result of this bill. It is one of many promises the president has made good on.
The end result is that polling is swinging wildly.
From Rasmussen Reports:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Trump making substantial gains after Tuesday’s State of the Union speech, and achieving his highest voter approval since March 7, 2017.
Forty-nine (49%) of Likely U.S. Voters approve of the president’s job performance. Another 49% disapprove.
The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 38% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -3.
These findings include the first two full nights of surveying following Tuesday’s speech.
You have to take some of these polls with a grain of salt. Some approval ratings gauge people’s opinions from week to week, day to day. They are essentially tracking people’s emotions and moods. That’s hardly an accurate appraisal of the entire country.
Add to that the fact they sample only a segment of the country across all states, these polls don’t give you a clear indication of what the majority of Americans believe.
That being said, this poll is encouraging. Even with the bias, flaws, and uncertainty, the poll indicates Americans are approving of the president. This, after a year of fake news, slander, and attacks by the entrenched media. Imagine what things would look like if they were actually honest!
2018 will shape up to be another historic election year. President Trump will score more wins for the American people. Come the fall, this country won’t look the same.
All reasons to be excited.
