As we predicted, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has gone up since the Trump-Putin Helsinki press conference that caused liberals and Democrats to suffer extreme cases of cranial fecalitus with bouts of hysteria.
Trump yielded a 45 percent approval rating in the latest joint Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll carried out between July 15th and 18th. That’s a rise of one percentage point from June.
Trump now has 88 percent support of polled Republicans. The Wall Street Journal writes:
Of the four previous White House occupants, only George W. Bush, in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, had a higher approval rating within his own party at the same point in his presidency.
And that is mostly thanks to enraged liberals in the Democratic Party and the establishment news media going all toys-in-the-attic, bat guano crazy over the dumbest of things, making their outrage seem all the more fake, phony, and fraudulent.
The Wall Street Journal‘s analysis of its own poll credits Trump — not Democrats or their news media allies — for sparking “controversy” related to the president’s approach towards Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin: “President Donald Trump’s approval rating edged higher during a week in which he faced withering criticism following a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, signaling that he is positioned to weather the latest controversy sparked by his unusual brand of politics.”
The poll asked its participants if they “believe Russia interfered in the 2016 election,” further asking if Trump’s election was dependent on “Russian interference.”
Those who accept the aforementioned assertion of “Russian interference” were further asked: “And do you believe that Donald Trump would have lost and Hillary Clinton would have won the election if Russia had not interfered with the 2016 presidential election?”
The poll’s ideological breakdown was: 25 percent identified as “liberal” or “somewhat liberal,” 36 percent identified as “moderate,” and 36 percent identified as “conservative” or “somewhat conservative.”
Even though the poll questioned people about their views on “Russian interference,” the poll’s creators did not list Russia or Vladimir Putin as possible issue priorities shaping poll respondents’ voting decisions in the forthcoming congressional elections.
