Despite numerous legislative victories and a booming stock market, President Trump’s approval rating stood at a historically low level throughout his first year in office.
Conservatives may not care, considering most polls had Hillary Clinton winning in a landslide in 2016.
However, Democrats’ midterm chances just took a stunning blow as 45’s approval rating has jumped to 49%.
Check this out…
President Donald Trump’s approval rating has risen to 49 percent following his first State of the Union address, according to the most recent Rasmussen Reports poll.
Rasmussen polls 500 likely U.S. voters regularly to track Trump’s approval rating. On Friday, that rating jumped four percent.
-49 percent approve
-49 percent disapprove
-35 percent strongly approve
-38 percent strongly disapprove
CNN decided to interview Democrats from Ohio who voted for Trump over former First Lady Hillary Clinton in 2016.
To the network’s surprise, said voters are thrilled with what Trump has done since taking office.

From Daily Wire:
The group of Democratic voters, who had all crossed over to vote for Trump during the 2016 election, agreed in their assessments of the president and on the importance of his key agenda goals, like ending illegal immigration.
When asked how they thought he was performing, the group replied, “Fantastic,” “Phenomenal,” “Better than I ever would have dreamt,” and “He’s doing wonderful, he’s staying on task.”
The panel did not agree with the media and the Democrats’ portrayal of Trump being a racist, as they also said he does not get a fair shake from the media.
Economists agree: former President Barack Obama is not responsible for anything good economically – despite what many lefties in the press want the uninformed to believe.
From The Daily Wire:
The Wall Street Journal asked 68 economists spread across academia and throughout the business world who was responsible for the booming economy, and, “happily for President Trump, the pros agree with him,” The Hill reported. “A recent survey of economists suggest it is President Trump, and not Obama, who should be taking a bow.”
Key takeaways from the report:
-Most of the economists said Trump was “‘somewhat’ or ‘strongly’ positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.”
-The experts said Trump’s decision to cut regulations and cut taxes were a major factor.
-The group gave Obama “neutral-to-negative for GDP growth and negative for long-term growth,” while scoring Trump as “neutral to positive for long-term gains.”
-The group of economists said Trump scores higher than Obama because business confidence is higher and business investments are increasing under Trump.
Trump’s first official State of the Union address was well received by Republicans. No surprise there.
Democrats weren’t fans of the speech, naturally.
Independents? They held the same view as the GOP.
From BizPac Review:
A whopping 97% of Republicans approved of Trump’s State of the Union address, while a stunning 72% of Independents did, according to a CBS News poll.
The Trump State of the Union address was the most tweeted-about in history (Twitter launched in 2008).
Fox News’ Brit Hume said “it will be interesting to see how it polls in a couple of days when the sample includes people who didn’t watch the speech but heard about it from the [anti-Trump] media.”
Three in four Americans approved of Trump’s address:
CNN did a little poll of their own and they quickly released they made a huge mistake.
If you watched the speech on Tuesday night, you saw the Democrats refusing to stand for Trump applause lines that went beyond party. He talked about the booming economy which is something everyone should get behind. Democrats just sat there with mean looks on their faces.
In fact, the look on Pelosi’s face throughout the speech was absolutely priceless.
Here is how Twitter reacted…

Couldn’t Pelosi at least pretend to be respectful?
