If you listened to the mainstream media, you’d swear up and down that the vast majority of Americans in this country hated President Trump and were extremely disappointed with his handling of the coronavirus crisis, but that’s all fake news.
In fact, a new poll released by Gallup has the president’s approval rating hitting a brand new surge as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to rage on across the United States, news that should put a smile on Trump’s face and continue to irk Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden.
Here’s more information on the poll from The Washington Examiner:
The latest Gallup survey found that 49% of adults approve of the president’s job, up from 43% two weeks ago. Trump has never crossed 49% in the Gallup survey.
The pop came despite crushing media criticism of his fight against the coronavirus and push to reopen the economy.Trending:
But it also came as the stock market was signaling support, and many in the United States joined with his call to get the U.S. back to work.
According to Gallup, what really helped to give President Trump a boost was the the increasing support of independents.
“Most of the variation in Trump’s recent job approval rating is among independents. In the current poll, 47% of independents approve of the job he is doing as president, the highest Gallup has measured for the group to date. 93% of Republicans and 8% of Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing,” the poll results stated.
Again, the news media in this country is reporting a narrative that has people hating the president and being disappointed with his handling of this pandemic, but that’s not the truth. The mainstream media has an agenda to push and that’s precisely what they are doing.
This is why, as folks with fully functioning brain cells, it’s critical to ensure that all of the stories we are fed by the mainstream media are checked and verified by multiple sources. We have to do the job of the press to ensure we are receiving both sides of a given story. That’s just the reality we live in right now.
