President Donald Trump’s popularity among Republican voters is climbing to historic levels. It is a good sign going into this years mid-terms and the presidential election of 2020.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Republican voters are demanding that President Trump run for re-election in 2020, the latest evidence that support among his backers is stronger than it was for nearly every recent president.
According to the latest Economist/YouGov poll, 68 percent of Republicans want Trump to run for re-election.
And Democratic pollster John Zogby said this week that only former President George W. Bush was more popular than Trump among his base going into his first mid-term election, and he had just launched a war against America’s 9/11 attackers.
His approval ratings within his own party are high. If you look today, 87 percent of Republicans give him a positive approval rating. What’s that mean? At this point in his presidency, Barack Obama had a 79 percent rating among Democrats. The only president at this point in time in the presidency to outscore Donald Trump was George W. Bush at 95 percent, and of course, by this point in time, we had launched the war in Iraq. Ronald Reagan wasn’t this high. Jack Kennedy wasn’t this high. The GOP is the party of Trump.
President Trump has infused energy into the Republican party. The upcoming years are going to be interesting. We are living in historic times and it will be fun to watch what President Trump can accomplish.
