No longer is it news that President Trump bested Obama.
In as much as GDPs over 3 percent are the new norm, Trump obliterating Obama’s policy non-achievements is the new norm as well.
And so we get more news on President Trump that’s sure to vex the Left.
As HuffPo reports,
The poll found Trump’s approval rating at its highest level for that poll yet, at 47 percent. Obama’s approval rating was 45 percent around the same time in 2010, according to a similar NBC/Wall Street Journal poll taken in late October 2010.
Obama’s approval rating was reaching a record low in October 2010, just before his party lost a significant number of seats in the House and Senate.
Let’s stop for a second to consider the presidential trajectories.
Obama reached a new low, and Republicans CRUSHED Democrats in the 2010 midterms. In contrast, President Trump now reaches a new high. I will leave it to Democrats to figure out what these trend lines mean.
The article continues,
Trump is a historically unpopular president among the general U.S. population, but consistently retains extremely high levels of Republican support. Recent polls have put him at around a 90 percent approval rating among Republicans.
Many see the midterm elections as a referendum on the current president.
Consider the falling poll numbers for Obama during his first two years leading into the midterm bloodbath. Did he maintain support from Democrats as Trump has Republicans. That’s debatable. But one thing is certain, he lost enough votes to lose hundreds of seats across all sectors of government. Clearly, Republicans who may have voted for Obama had enough, and reverted back. I suspect some Democrats did as well.
Republicans gained 6 Senate seats and 63 House seats. We also gained 6 governor’s seats, bringing the GOP total to 29.
With Trump, he maintains high Republican approval. Further, I believe even more Democrat defectors will join Trump in this midterms, particularly understanding what their party plans to do to Trump if they regain power.
2014 yielded similar results, as Republicans strengthened their numbers across the board.
The Democrats knew who to blame. Barack Obama. But most wouldn’t dare. It was after Obama left office before even the slightest significant criticism about his was levied. But make no mistake about it, Obama was to blame.
But his handlers were complicit. They chose Obama’s path, and he gleefully followed. After all, he accomplished what he wanted. Now the minions could run the country.
During his tenure, Obama lost about 1080 seats to Republicans.
Now Democrats can continue to pretend that Obama saved their party. However, the truth contradicts that theory.
Trump offers a total contrast to Obama.
A vibrant economy, for starters. Business is booming, unemployment at record lows. Moreover, prospects look phenomenal, as manufacturing jobs continue to return to the U.S.
America has optimism. A few holdouts credit Obama. But more Americans know who to thank for the robust economic atmosphere.
While these are great accomplishments, what Trump really accomplished was less policy and more perception. For example, Trump is a fighter. He attacks problems, he doesn’t address them.
Trump attacked the “fake news” media. He identified the problem, and now destroys it.
He attacked illegal immigration. Again, he identified the problem, and he’s in the midst of destroying it.
Trump sees the problem, and conquers it. And his fans love it. His non-fans respect it, and ultimately come to love it.
This poll tells most all they need to know. Democrats know what these numbers mean, thus they threaten to disrupt. Sadly, that’s all they have to offer.
