The President seems to be in a bit of a pickle this week, even if he isn’t showing it outright at all times.
Late last week, on Friday to be exact, Donald Trump’s former “fixer” Michal Cohen was at the center of a major revelation in the Robert Mueller investigation. Mueller is, of course, tasked with looking into the very serious accusation that Trump may have been elected on account of a deal he had between himself and Russia.
Of course, there has been no evidence provided of this so far; only tertiary connections being touted in the mainstream media as some sort of smoking gun.
What Mueller has found so far appears to be a couple of payments made to silence extortionists during the run-up to Trump’s election, in what the President has described as “private transactions”. Still, the media is calling for impeachment and removal of Donald Trump from the presidency.
We The People, according to Rasmussen polling, however, don’t quite see it the same way.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 36% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -3. (see trends).
This flies in the face of the leftist media, who have been drumming up all sorts of vitriol about the removal of Donald Trump from the Oval Office over the supposed “bombshells” in the Cohen case.
While such a move may be technically sound in liberal logic, the problem is that it would be a societal and political nightmare to attack a President with such a high approval rating.
The left need to tread lightly here, lest they wish to find themselves wholly ousted from relevancy in a conservative-shifting America.
