President Trump’s job approval ratings, according to a variety of polls, have hovered around 40-ish percent for the last few weeks, dipping into the high 30’s and now standing at 43 percent as of today, July 18th, according to Rasmussen Reports.
It’s a number lower than he’d like, but there’s a still a bright spot in all of this.
Despite the fact that the according to the media everyone hhhhhates Trump, his family and his collusion with Russia, they’d still rather have him than Hillary.
According to Bloomberg, Trump’s 2016 Democratic rival is viewed favorably by just 39 percent of Americans in the latest Bloomberg National Poll, two points lower than the president. It’s the second-lowest score for Clinton since the poll started tracking her in September 2009.
More than a fifth of Clinton voters say they have an unfavorable view of her. By comparison, just 8 percent of likely Clinton voters felt that way in the final Bloomberg poll before the election, and just 6 percent of Trump’s voters now say they view him unfavorably.
Poll participants said their negative feelings about Clinton had nothing to do with her losing the election, but rather their collective angst about how Democrats will be able to position themselves against Trump and the GOP in 2018 and beyond.
Many respondents said they always liked Bernie better and wished he’d won the nomination, but voted for Clinton in the general election because she was their only choice.
“She did not feel authentic or genuine to me,” said Chris Leininger, 29, an insurance agent from Fountain Valley, California. “She was hard to like.”
Hoo-boy, did the DNC make a mistake when they tipped the scales in Hillary’s favor. Smooth move.
However, Hillary herself can take some comfort in the fact that her numbers are significantly higher than Congress as a whole.
The most recent congressional job approval poll from Gallup on Thursday, July 13th shows a whopping 74 percent of respondents disapprove of the job our representatives are doing.
Hands up, everyone reading this who’s in that camp too. Thought so.
