President Trump is as popular as he's ever been right now
CNN ^ | 25 March 2020 | Chris Cillizza

Posted on 03/25/2020 11:43:18 AM PDT by Magnatron

Here's an indisputable fact: President Donald Trump is as popular today as he has been since his first day in office.

In a new Gallup poll, 49% approve of the job Trump is doing as president while 45% disapprove, matching the highest his approval rating has ever been in Gallup surveys. A Monmouth University poll released on Monday showed Trump at 46% approval, again the best he has done in that poll in more than three years.

What accounts for Trump's rise? Simple: His response to the coronavirus crisis.

In the Gallup poll, 60% of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing in handling the crisis while 38% disapprove of how he has done. Six in 10 independents approve of how Trump has done on the coronavirus as do more than 1 in 4 (27%) of Democrats. In the Monmouth poll, 50% say Trump has done a good job with coronavirus while 45% said he has done a bad job.

The heightened approval for how Trump has managed this crisis -- particularly among independents and even Democrats -- is what is pushing up his overall approval numbers, which have been largely stagnant for years.

This had to kill CNN editors to post this.

I’m sure they threw up in their mouths a little.

How sweet would it be if CNN went into dissolution bankruptcy?

It’s always easy to tell how Trump is doing in the polls. Just pay attention to whether the Democrats/Media have ramped up their attacks on him in the past few days. If so, that means their internal polling is giving them news they don’t like.

Meanwhile, Slow Joe is cancelling press conferences because he’s such a disaster.

“Also they want him off the TV!! LOL!”

And that’s exactly why.

He’s more popular than ever. The die hard, anti American filth in this country will never change and always be seething with hatred, jealousy and arrogance.

People who don’t necessarily support Trump can see that he’s doing his level best to help the American people, even reaching out to people who were calling him Hitler just three weeks back.

Meanwhile Pelosi & Co. try to slam abortion funding into a relief bill. If you have functioning brain cells you’re moving in Trump’s direction.

The joy of imagining how painful it is for CNN to say that.

The American people are seeing a calm and strong leader in Trump and are responding to it positively. With Dementia Joe mumbling and stumbling all over the place why do you think the MSM is showcasing Andrew Soprano Cuomo’s Wuhan flu updates and gushing over him. They think the son of Mario the Pious exhibits leadership too though we all know Loudmouth Andy is in over his head and incompetent as hell!

You watch. Once his numbers start to climb the “catastrophe” will end.

This morning Trump’s RealClearPolitics average job approval number was 46.5

I believe that was an all-time high.

This afternoon it’s 46.3

DJT is playing off the Governors

DJT is the good cop.

Governors are bad cops.

Gee who would have thunk rooting for virus to kill thousands of people and faking outrage over the virus being called a”Chinese” virus would backfire big time?

Helped by lawsuits from Sandman (Covington Catholic kid) and the Trump campaign.

I currently could give less than a hoot about his popularity right now.

Just get this CV issue taken care of!
Where are the masks?
I have 2 family members and other friends and relatives who work in the healthcare industry and they are all scared to death of running out of Personal Protection gear.

Where are the masks?

?Have you asked the facilities, city or county, state etc. They've all had a pandemic plan since 2005.

National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza

Johns Hopkins has been paying a higher price for masks because they were smart enough to insure their supply.

Wait til this bug blows thru and we learn of a) the massive, falsehood-based panic-mongering done by D’rats and their MSM, which hurt basically all Americans, b) the woeful unpreparedness of the (Obama-infected) CDC and many states and c) the D’rats’ massive porkulus attempt.

A bunch of people better be recalled, impeached and/or indicted for this thing.
