A recent poll from Rasmussen shows President Trump’s approval rating at 50 percent, which is higher than what former President Obama’s approval rating was at the same point in his presidency.
The poll compared August 2, 2018 of President Trump to August 2, 2010 of former President Obama.
With the mid-term elections coming up, everything is on the line. Republicans must maintain control of both the House and Senate in order to push through President Trump’s agenda.
President Trump recently spoke at a rally in Pennsylvania with candidate for U.S. Senate Lou Barletta.
“The economy is soaring under President Trump…the market is up over 20 percent, unemployment is at 4 percent, black unemployment is at an all-time low, Hispanic unemployment is at an all-time low, women’s unemployment is at an all-time low, small business confidence is at an all-time high, consumer confidence is at an all-time high, there are more jobs now than people who are unemployed, ISIS is practically gone, North Korea’s at the table, the wall’s being built. Why would we ever stop that? We’re not tired of winning Mr. President, we’re not tired of winning,” Barletta said.
