A new poll from FOX News says Trump’s approval rating is doing well, especially on the economy.
In fact, voter approval of the economy is the highest it has been since 2001. That’s amazing.

Fox News Poll: Trump approval up, voter ratings on economy best in decades
More voters rate the economy positively today than have since 2001, according to the latest Fox News Poll.
In addition, approval of the job President Trump is doing on the economy stands at 52 percent (41 percent disapprove). That’s just one-point off his high of 53 percent last summer, and up from 48-46 percent in May.
That job rating is helped, in part, by the 51 percent of voters now feeling the economy is in positive shape (excellent or good). The last time this many felt that way was almost two decades ago (59 percent, January 2001)…
In general, voters think Republicans would do a better job handling national security (+10 points) and the economy (+7). They give Democrats the advantage on race relations (+23 points), bringing the country together (+15), health care (+14), and immigration (+5). It’s mostly a draw on some issues that historically fall in the GOP column, such as on foreign policy (D+4), border security (R+3), the federal budget deficit (R+3), and taxes (even).
Many young people don’t realize what an amazing opportunity this economic environment is for them but Trump is trying to get the message out.
