“The proof is in a stunning new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll just released and conducted after the family-separation issue exploded along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump now enjoys 47 percent job approval, up 2 points from May. This is remarkable given the constant drumbeat of negative coverage, and it demonstrates yet again his uncanny ability to defy the laws of political gravity. When President Reagan and his policies remained popular in the face of never-ending criticism, he became known as the “Teflon president.” Trump is Teflon on steroids.
Much of his strength is tied to the public’s views on the economy. According to the poll, 69 percent say the economy is “strong,” 58 percent approve of his efforts on job creation, and 57 percent approve of his overall handling of the economy. Perhaps most significantly heading into the 2018 midterm elections, a whopping 68 percent say that their personal economic situation is improving or holding steady. Clearly, voters are experiencing tangible economic benefits as a result of the Trump tax cuts and aggressive deregulation, putting the lie to the Democrats’ sky-will-fall warnings. Given that kitchen-table issues largely drive midterm balloting and Democrats lack a compelling economic message to counter the Trump/GOP successes, Republican candidates are likely to enjoy a significant lift.

Even more striking numbers are evident on immigration. Despite the sound and fury stemming from the recent border controversy, fully 61 percent think current border security is “inadequate,” and when asked if the U.S. should have “open borders” or “secure borders,” a whopping 76 percent want the secure kind.

As for Trump’s cardinal promise to “build the wall,” 60 percent support “a combination of physical and electronic barriers” on the southern border and 69 percent want Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to continue its work and not be abolished — despite the left vilifying it as the Gestapo. In fact, a staggering 70 percent want even stricter enforcement of immigration law. That includes deportations: 64 percent say those who come into the country illegally should be “sent home” rather than “allowed to stay.” That also applies to parents who cross the border illegally with children in tow: 61 percent say they should be sent home.“

Clearly, people support the President at majority levels and his popularity with voters continues to rise. This November the wave may be even more red than I suspected! I’m starting to think Democrats will lose as badly as they did in 2010.

47% of 326,000,000 Americans or 47% of maybe 40,000,000 base voters?
Rep/Cons are so stupid,140,000,000 did not vote for Trump. Did anyone poll them?
Ciphering is so hard for Republicans trying to defend slime.

Cohen's is about to flip?

I think a lot of people have given up on the MSM after several years of blatant bias and horrific reporting that didn’t even try to disguise itself as news.

Trump is doing a lot of stuff. That looks good to many - he's not just sitting around doing nothing. But once the effects of what he's doing kick in, it will be a different story.

Most of the media is silent about how bad his trade policies are for us, in the hopes that they are wrong ? I don't know. There are economists commenting on the reality of the likely impact.

I still say Trump is only interested in causing inflation. Which is insanely good for him, and might be good (only in some ways) for the federal government with it's trillions in debt.

But you can be sure it's not going to be good for most of us.

- Once the US drops out of the Paris Accords, millions will die.
- Once the individual mandate is gone, millions will die.
- But once net neutrality is gone, millions will die.

Democrat fear mongering is ineffective. The past 2 years has proven this in spades.

Trump’s America

Obama had help from an adoring press, all of Hollywood, and all the elites of every major city. Why wasn’t his approval rating in the 80s? There aren’t that many absolute racists out there!

Trump has had a battle from even before his confirmation, an overtly hostile press, hostile elites, hostile celebrities, mobs of protesters and Antifa clogging the streets, an ongoing Russia investigation, and more negative coverage than any fifty Presidents before him.

Yet, he rises. And he rises due to the one thing Obama couldn’t do or fake: good governance. People are coming to trust him with the important and relevant business of fixing the economy, the nation’s security, and restoring Justice. Those three pillars are the foundation of any civilization, and Trump is paying careful attention and making good progress on these fronts.

And people are noticing.
It would seem that the fundamentals count for far more than the peripherals, upon which his opposition is LASER-focused.

I stand corrected. The press wasn’t 100% pro-Obama. It was only 80% pro-Obama. Does that explain why his approval numbers were lower then than Trump’s are now? Those “alternative view” news outlets really wrecked the narrative that much? Interesting point!

I’m really becoming curious about how he came to be idolized. I don’t idolize anyone so it doesn’t make sense to me, but after the way these people treated Obama for 8 years, and then now they’re lining up to get a taste of Chumps baby batter it is definitely a site to be seen.

You must love Trump. Or else you’re a bad American. Real Patriots blindly and unquestionably love their president. Thecreason they hated obama was he was a fake president, more of a brown muslin interloper honestly.

Be careful to not say that in front of the 7 million that are paying more taxes.
Hope the tariffs don't eat up tax breaks. roflmao
Wonder how the taxed 7 million will vote? I'm sure they are tickled!
DIE! all Republicans! I'm paying more taxes that eat up my SOCIALIST Security ($4.00/month,;-). One doesn't pay SSI on all income over their work/entrepreneurial history.
Some of us Successful Independent codgers have other income that Trump can steal from.

Sometimes a message is worth repeating: Fuck Trump & all his slime voters/supporters! God Damn Redistribution Socialists!
Republican thieves!

How so? The Fed greatly increased the money supply under Obama and is now decreasing it. That leads to deflation, not inflation -- if any effect at all.
