How Unpopular Is Donald Trump? By John Hinderaker.
The Democratic Party media tell us every day that Donald Trump is a uniquely, unprecedentedly unpopular president. His disapproval numbers, they say, are astronomical. There is some truth to that. Trump’s numbers certainly could be better. Just look at this chart, which tracks his “strong approval” numbers against those who “strongly disapprove.” This guy is about as unpopular as you can get:
Oops…wait…sorry…The guy with the 45% strong disapproval rating and a -26% Approval Index was Barack Obama, in August 2011. Funny, I don’t recall the press yammering at us non-stop about how unpopular Obama was for eight years. For purposes of comparison, how does President Trump stack up?
Currently, Rasmussen, the source of the Obama chart embedded above, has President Trump with 45% approval and 53% disapproval, compared with Obama’s worse numbers – 44/56 – in August 2011.
Trump’s current Approval Index of -14 is one that Barack Obama could only dream of for most of his presidency.
Think of the media as leftists with bylines, and it all makes sense.
