[Ed. – You don’t have to like Trump to recognize that he’s got the numbers. You do have to be kind of nutty to keep attacking him in the same way over and over again — and hoping for a different result.]
Many less than delectable looking bare bottoms were aimed at the Trump towers in recent days. In the White House briefing room, the media tried to follow suit and got a lesson in how Trump trumps haters.
For a full week, the press stories — funny how they all seem alike — charged that the White House was a scene of “turmoil and chaos.” Once again, they prematurely pronounced Trump dead. Rasmussen told another story altogether. Voters indicated by 45% that we were heading in the right direction, “a higher level of optimism than found during any week of the Obama presidency.” He had a higher approval rate than Obama had for his entire second term and most of his first term, save for the few first months of his honeymoon period and the last 10 days of his term, (when apparently under cover he was planting IEDs for his successor). One Wednesday’s tracking poll showed “53% of likely voters approve of his performance.” A day after his solo press conference his ratings soared higher: “The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.” …
As to public sentiment about deporting criminal illegal aliens — an effort now ongoing — and threats to cut off funds to sanctuary cities, despite all the tales of woe on your front pages, these policies seem to have substantial public support, even among Hispanic voters whom the Democratic Party was surely counting on to oppose them:
“Trump voters approved 93 percent to 4 percent, but Clinton voters also approved 53 percent to 35 percent. Republicans gave near unanimous support 92 percent to 6 percent; independents 66 percent to 18 percent, and Democrats approved 50 percent to 37 percent. The majority of Hispanic voters also approved the deportation of criminal illegal immigrants 56 percent to 31 percent.”
