Trump has done an excellent job on the economy and keeping the United States out of new entanglements overseas and he’s being rewarded for it.
He is now heading into the 2020 election season at a new polling high, according to Gallup.

Trump’s approval rating hits all-time high in Gallup poll
President Trump’s approval rating reached new heights in the second half of April, according to the Gallup poll, as nearly half of voters gave him positive marks.
Trump’s approval rating ticked up to 46 percent, up slightly from 45 percent in the first part of April and the highest mark to date for Trump in the Gallup poll.
It comes on the heels of strong economic numbers and the largely favorable outcome of the Russia investigation.
Trump remains overwhelmingly popular among Republicans, 91 percent of whom gave the president positive marks in the latest Gallup poll. That figure falls just short of the record high of 92 percent approval among GOP respondents, reached in a Gallup survey in November…
The Gallup poll surveyed 1,024 adults nationwide from April 17 to April 30. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Trump has largely been buoyed by a strong economy that saw continued growth in April.
One other important aspect of this poll is how the numbers compare to Obama. Trump is in great shape.
The Daily Caller reports:
POLL: TRUMP’S APPROVAL NUMBERS TOP OBAMA’S DURING SAME POINT IN HIS FIRST TERM
President Donald Trump’s approval ratings blew past former President Barack Obama’s first term numbers from April 2011, according to a Gallup poll published Monday.
Trump’s ratings reached 46 percent for the first time during his presidency, the poll noted. Gallup argued the higher numbers are likely a result of a strong economy and the Department of Justice’s decision to publish special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian election meddling.
Department of Labor data released Friday showed the U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs in April while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, making March the 103rd straight month of job growth. Economists predicted 190,000 jobs would be added and the unemployment rate would hold at 3.8 percent. The unemployment rate hit a 50-year low, media reports show.
The president’s rating is higher than former President Barack Obama’s numbers by April 2011, when he enjoyed a 44-percent approval rating.
This is even more amazing when you consider that Trump has accomplished this despite never-ending attacks from the media.
It just shows that the American people can see through the media’s game.
