I don't think I need to link it if you've been watching the news. To me it's an example of how what people view as the "liberal media" can get on a jag that is not what liberals want to hear. It's the thing about how Trump has his highest approval rating ever now. It's based on him reaching 49% in the Gallup poll. I've been watching CNN and MSNBC since Gallup released the results and it's all over the place. People keep saying "he's at his highest approval rating ever."
But it's just one poll. If you look at the Real Clear Politics average page on that issue right now it shows seven polls that represent later periods than that Gallup poll and they have Trump's approval rating at 44, 43, 46, 46, 42, 48, and 44%. And the 48% is the Rasmussen poll. By he real clear politics average he has a 45.0% approval rating. His historical high approval rating in that average is 46.0% and he's been in the 45 through 46 range a number of times.
Don't bet me wrong: I do think he's had a bit of an uptick in approval rating, I think he's in one of his better positions in that regard relative to where he's been historically and that does disturb me. But I don't think he's in the best position of his Presidency. Also, there is good news in that the two polls up that were conducted entirely during February that aren't Rasmussen have him at -10 (44% approve, 54% disapprove) and -13 (42% approve, 55% disapprove).
But anyway I think the "liberal media" have been a little off the mark by trumpeting the idea that he's got the highest approval rating of his presidency because that happened with one poll and the rest of the polls don't say that.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?
