President Trump points out that a year-end Rasmussen poll has his approval rating at approximately the same as Barack Obama had on Dec 28th, 2009 – at 47%.
That’s an extraordinary achievement, when you consider the negative coverage that he has been hit with during his presidency, to date…which is to say…over 90% negative.
If the media affects polling by 10-15 points, as some claim, he’d be in the 60%+ range.
Maybe the best indication of Trump’s popularity can be found in this headline:
Does anyone think – by any stretch of imagination – such a GOP fundraising amount would’ve been possible if Trump were as unpopular as media would have us believe?
