Now, this is something the left wasn’t expecting.
After all the fake outrage and lies flung at our new Justice of the Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh, it’s starting to look like instead of leaving President Trump and the Republican Party with a black eye it has backfired and given the president his highest approval rating to date. And it’s only a month away from the important midterm elections where Democrats had hoped to take over both the House and Senate. A goal which now seems about as out of reach as them believing that if Trump were to be impeached the presidency would be handed over to Hillary Clinton and her syndicate.
“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 38% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of zero (0). (see trends).
This is Trump’s highest Presidential Approval Index rating since early February of last year, shortly after he first took office. By comparison, Barack Obama earned a presidential approval index rating of -12 on October 8, 2010, in the second year of his presidency.
Protests continued over the weekend as U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. swore in Judge Brett Kavanaugh as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court shortly after his Senate confirmation in a 50-48 partisan vote.
Most voters disapprove of how the U.S. Senate has conducted Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation process and say the U.S. Supreme Court nominee has been investigated enough.
Responding to the drumbeat of support by Democrats for the still unproven sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, President Trump said last week, “It’s a very scary time for young men in America when you can be found guilty of something that you may not be guilty of.” Most voters agree.
