The worst nightmare of the liberal/progressive/socialist radical left is actually coming true. While I don't actually believe polls, they're too easy to manipulate and provide the desired outcome of the poll taker, this is interesting in that other polls are also indicating the same approval improvements.
Anyway, some will cheer and others will cry in their morning cereal.
So, MERRY CHRISTMAS (belatedly) and to many ENJOY THE GOOD TIDINGS, for the others, Merry Christmas and don't despair, the sun will come up again tomorrow, and the day after and Trump will be re-elected and you can continue your vitriolic diatribes for another four year Trump administration.
On the same day that the House of Representatives is set to impeach Donald Trump, a new poll from Gallup shows that his approval rating has steadily risen since the impeachment inquiry began in September, and is nearly at an all-time high.
In a poll taken during the first two weeks of December, Gallup found Trump’s approval was 45 percent, up 6 percent since the start of the impeachment inquiry. Trump’s highest ever number with Gallup was 46, which he only reached once. The recent increase in Trump’s approval is driven, Gallup says, by an 8 percent jump in his number with independents. The December polls put Trump’s approval among independents at 42 percent, up from 34 percent in the early fall.
The poll also found a drop in the number of Americans who support impeaching and removing Trump. That change, Gallup notes, was also driven by independents.
Democrats (85%) remain widely supportive of impeachment and removal, while a small percentage of Republicans, 5%, agree.
The movement in the national figure mostly reflects a small shift among political independents, a slight majority of whom supported impeachment and removal in two October polls (55% and 53%), but whose support has fallen below the 50% mark in the two polls since (45% in November and 48% in the latest poll).
Gallup is among a handful of pollsters bringing Trump holiday cheer. A Fox News poll released this week showed Trump’s job approval at 45 percent, up three points from late October. That puts him roughly where he was at the beginning of the year, before the Ukraine scandal hit the headlines. Despite the approval uptick, though, the same Fox News poll found that 54 percent of respondents want Trump impeached.
