Despite media outrage and gun protests, President Trump’s approval ratings are at the highest since the honorific 100-day mark of his tenure.
According to a new CNN poll, albeit potentially biased, 42% of those asked approve of the president’s actions thus far.
Compared to Barack Obama at the same point in his presidency, President Trump is only 4 points behind; leaving many to speculate how such a small dissension could be when the mainstream media blasts Trump left and right.
Though the approval rankings are less than half of those inquired, a 7% increase in ratings since February must be acknowledged.
Within the Republican party and amongst independents, President Trump’s ratings have increased from 80% to 86% and 35% to 41%, respectively.
And while his ratings have varied over the past few months – 40% in January, 35% in February and presently 42% – the amount of those “strongly approving” and “strongly disapproving” have remained comparatively constant at 28% and 46%, correspondingly. Meaning: An increasing number of Americans stuck in the middle of voter turnouts seem to be leaning to the right.
When asked about President Trump’s economical organization, 48% approve, opposed to the 45% disapproving.
In light of the president’s recent tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from China, 38% approve, whereas 50% disapprove.
Surprising to some, 54% disapprove of the White House’s stance on gun control with only 36% approving.
Overall, it makes sense that despite social unrest and political correctness creeping into all facets of American daily lives, a decent majority still trust his cost-conscious approach to relieving the U.S. of the trillions of dollars in debt the nation has amounted.
Regardless of his approach being a short-term solution or long-term orientated, even those unaligned with the Democratic and Republican parties may very well be waking up to the true inadequacies plaguing this great nation.
