President Trump's Approval Rating Shakes Up Washington
By Steve Straub
February 11, 2019 at 4:14pm

A new poll showing President Trump with an approval rating not seen since just after his election in 2016 has shaken up Washington D.C. and given him additional leverage in his border wall negotiations with Congress.

A new Rasmussen poll shows President Trump with a 52% approval rating among likely voters:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump's job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.
Trump's highest level of approval since shortly after his inauguration.

The latest figures include 39% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove.

The poll was taken three days after the State of the Union and reflects the strong approval the public had with the speech and its contents.

Trump's high numbers do not bode well for Democrats hoping to unseat him in 2020.

It also gives him additional leverage in border wall negotiations with Congress, as the Daily Mail reports:
Trump could use the groundswell now more than ever: A Friday deadline looms for the White House and congressional Democrats to hash out a budget deal to avoid a second government shutdown.
Asked what Monday's numbers mean, a senior Democratic House aide confided on background: 'I don't know yet if it's horrible, but it sure isn't good.'

The White House, however, seemed pleased. Trump himself tweeted an image of this story at the top of The Drudge Report, an influential news aggregation website.

Of course bad news for Democrats is good news for the rest of America.

President Trump's popularity on the border issue has a lot to do with the fact that he's putting the needs of American citizens first, while Democrats are favoring the needs of illegal aliens.

This is also very good news for his 2020 chances:
Trump often cites Rasmussen as a rare example of a trustworthy poll, suggesting others are operated by 'fake news' outlets that are slanted against him.

The president won 46.1 per cent of the votes cast in the 2016 election, prevailing on the strength of a commanding majority in the Electoral College.

Rasmussen's Monday numbers suggest Trump could have a majority of Americans behind him and a leg up on his winning position from two years ago.

Lets hope the Democrats keep up their leftward march as we head into 2020 so the American people can see the hard truth about what that party really stands for.

I'll just cut and paste from Tspank's anemic post from yesterday...

The source is garbage and they routinely prove themselves to be:

"The president is citing a poll from @Rasmussen_Poll, which said that Republicans would win the popular vote for the U.S. House," said FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver, who once described Rasmussen as "biased." "Instead, Democrats won it by 9 points."

Further and as Cole pointed out recently Rasmussen relies on landlines with an attempt to reach those not crippled with debilitating age related dementia by doing a bit of on-line polling.

Like (Insert name of addled and angry GOP supporter here) the Rasmussen polling is broke down and depleted.

Fish guzzler's bubble needs cleaning. Only the most wretched and feeble minded are left worshiping their racist idol. That Rasmussen would publish garbage (note that you have dig to get their polling methodology) to give hope to the mindless maga believers is nothing new.

Anyone notice how many democrats are rushing to run for President? They all know if they get the nomination they win. It was like the Republicans with Hillary and the orange lying commie lover emerged to the joy of the racists.

The dope in chief is a shell of his former self. He's a nobody anymore. He was used by the GOP to get tax cuts and now he's getting thrown out faster than a person interviewing with a credential from Trump U.

Perhaps it's the steak eating that makes the GOP cheer geezers so slow witted and grumpy?
