Trump Approval at 50% — 5 POINTS HIGHER THAN OBAMA at Same Point in His Presidency

Despite the continued media anti-Trump hysterics over the past several months including the meltdown after President Trump said kind words to Vlad Putin — the US president’s approval rating continues to rise.

Media darling Barack Obama had an approval rating of 45% on August 2, 2010.

President Trump is now 5 points ahead of Barack Obama at a similar point in his presidency.

And this is while 90% of network media coverage has been negative of President Trump.

If President Trump had just 50% positive coverage by the liberal media his approval numbers would be in the 60’s.

"If" people were smart they would be rich.

So all smart people are rich? So if if are not rich, you must be dumb?

Wait, this can't be true, the Liberal media keeps telling us Trump is racist and hates Brown people....

Hispanics boosting approval numbers...

A recent Harvard/Harris poll recorded a 10-point spike in Hispanic support for Mr. Trump. It hasn’t received much attention from the mainstream media, which is heavily invested in its portrait of the president as an unrepentant — and unpopular — “nativist.”

Coming in the midst of the nationwide controversy over children and families at the U.S.-Mexico border, it suggests that Hispanics may not be the entrenched liberal voting constituency that Democrats so often imagine.

What’s going on? Hispanics, like most mainstream voters, are waking up to post-2016 America. The economic recovery disparaged by Democrats is gathering steam and Hispanics — at 17 percent, the nation’s most populous ethnic minority — are clearly benefitting. Unemployment among Hispanics has fallen to its lowest level in decades, and there’s little doubt that Mr. Trump’s pro-business policies are the reason.

Mr. Trump, it appears, is making real progress in the face of a massive liberal propaganda campaign depicting him as hostile to Hispanics, especially Mexicans.

Everyone is a Democrat until they Understand Politics.

This is why when you talk politics with Democrats they get angry and frustrated. They resent your command of what's going on, as they realize they don't understand SHIT.

It would really help Trump would stop saying stupidly narcissistic shit all the time. Every time he declares himself the greatest President or thanks God for himself or says he’s the man of the year, his approval ratings drop.
It’s like he can’t even help it.
He’s the best and worst POTUS we’ve ever had.
At the same time.

Oh come on, hyperbole much? Honestly, he's neither. Seriously, what has he done that justifies this statement? I can't think of anything incredibly remarkable- or incredibly disastrous- about his presidency. His environmental policy sucks, but that's such a long term thing that it can be checked and corrected well past his time in office. His economic policies have been decent up to now, but it looks like markets are in correction now so it's anyone's guess where that's headed.

For all the hue and cry over the past two years, the results have been decidedly lukewarm.

How's your 401K or IRA balance look after the first two years of Trump compared to the last two years of Obama?

Barack's approval was barely higher than Trump, even with the Media Fawning on Him.
Trump's approval is barely lower than Obama, even with the Media's 90%+ Negative Coverage.

Obama did not have the Press actively arguing with him about policy.

Doing fine, yes, if you took the time to read my post you'd see that I think Trump's economic policies have been pretty good... For people like me, at least.

And you're posting a Rasmussen chart. My chart is a poll of polls from FiveThirtyEight, likely more reliable as it draws on much more data. But, whatever.

Baby name ‘Melania’ soars 227 percent, 'Ivanka' spikes 362 percent

Also from the article:

And for the guys, first son Barron is the winner, with the use of his name jumping 90 percent from 2015.

If we go simply by the way Trump names his kids, the Donald would be the first black President.

Okay, how about RealClearPolitics? Known to have a neutral/slight right lean.

RealClear puts Trump at 43.8 approval, roughly two years into his term. At two years Obama had 46.9. Bush had 70.9.

You say fivethirtyeight has known 'strong' left lean. Then you go sourcing Rasmussen, as if they're some bastion of even-handedness. Lol

I'm sure you'll write this off as fake news, because reasons, but I thought it was germaine to the discussion:

From the article:

Rasmussen's final poll was the least accurate of any of the 32 polls. They had the Republicans ahead nationally by one point. Democrats are currently winning the national House vote by 8.6 points. That's an error of nearly 10 points.
Of course, it's possible for any pollster to have one inaccurate poll. Fortunately, for statistical purposes, Rasmussen released three generic ballot polls in the final three weeks of the 2018 campaign.
The average Rasmussen poll had Democrats ahead by 1.7 points on the generic ballot. That's an underestimation of their eventual position of nearly 7 points. This made Rasmussen's average poll more inaccurate than any other pollster.
