It’s been a little over a year since Trump took office and conservatives have had very little reason, if any, to not be happy with Trump’s presidency. In fact, you can make a solid argument he has done a better job than Reagan at the 1-year mark.
From Western Journal:
According to a prominent conservative think tank, President Donald Trump has accomplished more in his first year in office — at least in one respect — than former President Ronald Reagan.
Near the end of the Obama administration’s tenure, the Heritage Foundation created a list of 334 policy recommendations, known as the “Mandate for Leadership,” that they hoped the next Republican president would follow.
One year into Trump’s presidency, an analysis conducted by the think tank determined that 64 percent of those prescriptions have been pursued by the new administration.
But, it’s not just conservatives who are digging the Trump presidency.
“Forty-five percent of Americans are satisfied with the position of the United States in the world, a 13-year high and a 13-percentage-point increase from one year ago, just after President Donald Trump took office.”
From The Daily Caller:
This could potentially be bad news for Democrats in the upcoming midterms. Many in the establishment media have speculated that Democrats could win big in the upcoming 2018 midterms due to bad public feeling about President Trump, but if these poll numbers are any indication, that might not be the case.
Sounds like Trump is doing alright.
Democrats keep talking about this “blue wave” that’s coming in the midterms. Is it really coming? Sure. The party not in power usually does well in the midterms. But, Trump is a political phenomenon we simply haven’t seen before. It’s quite possible that the media is misreading the political landscape just like they did in 2016.
If fundraising is an indicator, the GOP has the momentum.
From The Daily Caller:
The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced Wednesday that it raised $12.4 million in January and more than $144 million in the 2018 election cycle.
“As we head into the 2018 midterm elections, the Republican Party continues to break fundraising records,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said. “We are working hand-in-hand with Republicans in Congress and President Trump to enact a pro-growth agenda on behalf of the American people. In doing so, we will continue to invest in our ground game, data operations, technology and Party infrastructure to win elections in 2018 and beyond.”
Democrats are trailing Republicans thus far in the 2018 election cycle, raising roughly $66 million and spending just over $71 million. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is also $5,594,727 in debt.
