President Donald Trump’s Approval Hits High-water Mark

If the liberal media was hoping this immigration crisis would make people think twice about Donald Trump, they’ll have to try harder. The president’s approval ratings are getting a good bump — and so is the country he’s leading.

Not since 2005 have more people been happier with the way things are going in the United States. Today, 38 percent say they’re satisfied with the state of America, the highest since a 39-percent peak 13 years ago. “A supermajority of Republicans and a healthy slice of Independents are pleased with where the country is moving,” pollsters point out. Only Democrats seem stubbornly opposed to the growth of the economy, diplomatic success, and job numbers.

“The rise in satisfaction over the past two months comes amid a spate of positive economic news – including the shrinking of the unemployment rate to levels last seen in 2000, and the continuation of economic expansion that is now the second longest on record,” Townhall’s Matt Vespa points out.

Meanwhile, the numbers for the leader overseeing the shift aren’t shabby either. On Monday, Gallup also announced that President Trump tied the highest approval rating of his presidency — 45 percent, matched only by its highest mark the week after his inauguration. So when the extremists start jabbering away about all the people who don’t support what the White House is doing, just know: it’s more fake news.
