CNN has been hammering the Stormy Daniels story for at least two weeks now but the big 60 Minutes interview turned out to be a nothing burger. Despite CNN’s best efforts to damage him, Trump’s approval numbers are going up and even CNN has to admit it.
Here are some details from their new poll:
CNN Poll: 42% approve of Trump, highest in 11 months
President Donald Trump’s approval rating has rebounded to its highest level since the 100-day mark of his presidency, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, even as his approval ratings for handling major issues remain largely negative.
Overall, 42% approve of the way Trump is handling the presidency, 54% disapprove. Approval is up 7 points overall since February, including 6-point increases among Republicans (from 80% to 86% now) and independents (from 35% to 41% now). Trump’s approval rating remains below that of all of his modern-era predecessors at this stage in their first term after being elected, though Trump only trails Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama by a narrow 4 points at this point in their first terms.
The President’s strongest approval ratings on the issues come on the economy, the only issue tested where his reviews tilt more positive than negative: 48% approve and 45% disapprove.
The liberal media keeps attacking him with whatever they can find but nothing sticks and they end up looking ridiculous.
