Rasmussen: Trump's Approval Index Turns Positive Day after Pelosi Signs Impeachment Articles

 

On Thursday - the day after Democrats delivered impeachment articles to the Senate - Donald Trump's Presidential Approval Index rating turned positive for the first time in nine months, Rasmussen Reports' Daily Presidential Tracking Poll results show.

Trump's +1 rating in Rasmussen's Presidential Approval Index reflects 40% of likely U.S. who said they "strongly approve" of the job Pres. Trump is doing and 39% who "strongly disapprove."

Overall, Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters either "somewhat" or "strongly" approve of President Trump's job performance, while 47% somewhat or strongly disapprove.

Not since December 5, 2019 – the day House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Democrats would formally proceed with impeachment – have so few voters disapproved of Trump's performance.

It's crazy for them to do this. It doesn't really make sense. There are more democrats in the country than republicans. It is their election to lose, if they can just retain 50% of independant votes they win the election but when they do transparent shit like this and act so irrationally they are just throwing away all those independant votes (mostly rational people) and hell I wouldn't be surprised if you probably end up with even a few registred democrats voting for trump in 2020.

And the eventual candidate (Biden) the other night was like a wooden post during the debate. No energy, no enthusiasm, zero ideas that wow'd anyone. 

And THAT is why they are pushing Impeachment. And when he gets acquitted (or whatever the term they use), they will continue to smear and disparage anything Trump.

It's amazing that all the Democrats had to do was act less crazy than Trump for 4 years and they couldn't do it. They didn't put forth a single decent piece of legistlation and helped absolutely nobody for 4 years but themselves. 

People are tired of the left acting like eliteists and telling everyone else how they should behave and speak at all times. They now view the world in terms of right and wrong in which the side they take is always right, good and just while leaving anyone who disagree's with them as wrong and evil. There is no having a different opinion because if you have one, you are labeled. You're a racist, homophobe, xenophobe etc, if you don't agree with the whole platform from start to finish.

Dems declaring that this a sad day for the United States while smiling, handing out golden souvenir pens, and then Pelosi saying that the biggest reason this is a win for them is because they got to tarnish the president's reputation forever does not make them look good. It makes them look petty and vindictive which obviously aren't admirable traits.

Are we seriously celebrating that Trump finally got over the hump on the most lopsided polls for approval?

Trump's approval rate has been pretty much a straight line for 2 years and if you think that's changing in any significant way before the election, you're delusional.

Many Dems in the house are more worried about being primaried than they are about the presidency.

The election isn't a popular vote.

About 47% of independents support not just impeaching Trump, but also removing him.

Yes, some registered Democrats will vote for Trump.

Oh bless your naive hearts for trusting polls.

See you when Trump is sworn in again for his 2020 victory.

Toodles!

Love,

Tomato Can - Trump's approval rate has been pretty much a straight line for 2 years and if you think that's changing in any significant way before the election, you're delusional.

agree but wouldnt be surprised to see a tiny upswing due to the fact that over the years people are seeing his admin do things and get them done, deliver on his word, all with the dems trying to stop him at every turn.  

people are starting to see through the various fake news narratives

This is smart. 
 

All they had to do was WATCH and POINT OUT CRAZINESS. 

Instead they are spending the whole time trying to get him out before his end of term. When getting him out AFTER his term would have been so much easier. Seriously - could they not have just found / decided on one candidate to agree on and push opposing ideas for 3.5 years until the election? And then have a shoe-in?

Instead we have the primaries which only serve to point out each candidates faults. Biden is senile and weird. Sanders is crazy and feeble. Warren is at best boring and at worst unable to put together a rational idea. Everyone else just brings down the 3 front runners. 
 

I think this mishandling of the Trump presidency by the democrats will be studied in political science classes for generations.

The left will be dumbfounded when Trump takes 20% of the black vote. He's already polling high 30's in 3 polls which the left loves to tout as being accurate.

When they all stood up for healthcare for illegals at the first debate. That's when they lost the black vote. Dont forget getting ASAP Rocky out of swedish prison and the Kanye effect.
