Trump’s Approval Rating Is Starting To Really Go Up

Following an extremely strong State of the Union performance, President Trump’s approval numbers are steadily rising.  In fact, as you will see below, Rasmussen Reports says that Trump’s approval rating is higher than Barack Obama’s was at this stage.  That is startling, because the mainstream media would have us believe that Barack Obama was a widely popular president and that Donald Trump is the most hated president in modern American history.  Yes, there are definitely a lot of people out there that do not like Trump, but the truth is that there are also millions upon millions of us that support the president and want him to succeed.


I knew that Trump’s State of the Union address would help him, but I wasn’t sure exactly how much it would help his approval numbers.  Well, it turns out that some polls are now showing that his approval rating is approaching 50 percent.  For example, Rasmussen Reports found that Trump’s approval rating hit 48 percent on Wednesday

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 34% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8.

In comparison, Barack Obama only had a 44 percent approval rating on this exact same day eight years ago

President Trump has a stronger approval rating today than media darling Barack Obama did back in 2010 on this same day.

Back on February 7, 2010 Barack Obama had an approval rating of 44% while 56% of likely voters disapproved of the far left president.

Of course other surveys show that Trump’s approval numbers are a bit lower, but they still show that they are rising.

For example, the latest numbers from Real Clear Politics show that Trump’s average approval rating has risen from 37.0 percent on December 12th to 42.3 percent currently.  That is a move of more than five percent in less than two months, and that is an extremely promising sign for Republicans as we head toward the 2018 mid-term elections.

Many Republicans, including many of the opponents in my race, have purposely distanced themselves from Trump, and I believe that is a huge mistake.

Here in Idaho, one poll found that Trump has a 56 percent approval rating, and another poll found that he had a 53 percent approval rating, and both of those polls are from last year.  Now that Trump’s numbers are surging nationally following his State of the Union address, Trump’s approval rating in this state is now undoubtedly higher.

But what matters most for all of the Republican primaries around the nation that are about to happen is Trump’s approval rating among Republican voters.  And once again, those numbers appear to be surging.

For instance, for the week of January 29th to February 4th, Gallup found that Trump’s approval rating among Republicans hit 90 percent for the very first time in his presidency.

Trump only has a 6 percent approval rating among Democrats, but for the primaries that doesn’t matter.  Trump is extremely popular among Republicans right now, and we need to work very hard to help pro-Trump candidates win primaries all across the country in the months ahead.

If you have been following my campaign at all, then you already know that I am unashamedly running as a “pro-Trump” candidate.

I have repeatedly stated that I want to be President Trump’s best friend in Congress, and I am going to work as hard as I can to implement the Make America Great Again agenda.

2018 is a make or break moment for the Trump movement.  If the Democrats take back control of the House and the Senate, they are going to try to impeach Trump.  If establishment Republicans remain in control, they are going to continue to stall Trump’s agenda in Congress.

But if the same movement that propelled Trump to the presidency rises up and gets behind pro-Trump candidates all over the country, we can shake Washington like it has never been shaken before.

Now is the time for “we the people” to take our government back.  If we miss this once in a generation moment, we may never have this opportunity ever again.

Michael Snyder is a pro-Trump candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, and you can learn how you can get involved in the campaign on his official website. His new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters” is available in paperback and for the Kindle on

    I reckon Trump’s approval rating ain’t goin up above 40 or whatever percent. You can say that it is goin up all you want, but much of the country hates the imbecile.
    Trump took credit for the stock market’s rise and he will get the blame for the decline.
    There are a lot of factors for the market’s decline, but Trump’s erratic behavior and his stupid feud with the FBI and DOJ is hurting the country. The FBI and DOJ are core institutions of this democracy and Trump is UNDERMINING his presidency by attacking both institutions.
    Nixon tried to use both the FBI and CIA to end the Watergate investigation, but it backfired on himself and ruined his presidency.
    Trump can keep whining about the so-called deep state, but for a guy who claims to be innocent he sure acts like he isn’t. Remember when Nixon said, people gotta know if their president is a crook, and I’m no crook.

      It all depends on who your friends are and where. If you live along the northeastern coast or along the west coast, there is a good chance you will find most people with your own perspective. If you visit the other 80% of the country, you might find out you’ve been living in a bubble. Of course, most of the network news only covers events in these two areas. We don’t live there!

      The democrats have both coasts locked up but PA, OH, MI and WI are the major states they have to campaign in, and win, to actually get the presidency. Unfortunately, Hillary forgot this last election.

        I believe Isaac’s comments apply if you’re a globalist NWO shill!

    Donald Trump is a mystery. It proves Murphy’s Law. He should never have won with everything he had going against him. But the bottom line is he did win.
    Just like he has opened his mouth more than once and offended a lot of people.
    His wall does not make any historical kind of sense. It will not work as it is presented.
    His immigration policies make no sense whatsoever when a Jordan Man in Youngstown, Ohio with respectable businesses and family that are citizens in good standing is kicked out after living here for 40 years.
    The word bigot comes to mind in that particularly hateful case. I suggest he pardon whatever crime got him evicted and bring him back to his family now.
    There is a dangerous situation in the Koreas. Both North and South could end up in an active war before it is over with and they do have weapons capable of reaching our shores. So who pays who? Because someone is pulling the puppet strings just like they did in Cuba.
    Donald Trump has done a lot of things in his life. Some of them good and some of them bad. He is President because a majority of the people did not want his opposition as President of this country.
    I personally am tired of a setup where we either vote for one sick candidate or another because both parties are corrupt. And our state elections permit no one else to reasonably get elected except a Republican or a Democrat.
    Before this occurred, parties came and went. If they became too corrupt they disappeared. Making it either or, Democrat or Republican, is what has corrupted the political system of this country.
    Money talks and right now the Republican view is bought and paid for. The Democrats are basically broke and angry.
    But next week it may be the other way around.
    What Donald has done is stir up a hornet’s nest and it will not be over until a lot of corrupt men and women in Congress are tossed out on their ears. Maybe they may go to jail.
    The same goes for the FBI and the other untouchables. Well they might get touched anyway under this administration. A lot of political stuff has been happening both in the FBI and the courts. And no way is any of it legal.
    It looks like Donald never expected to become President. I think he ran to promote a future tv program like his apprentice program. So it came as a surprise when he actually won.
    It wasn’t the Russians that won him this election. It was really good imaging and marketing skills. Now he has to either put up or shut up. And he is not capable of shutting up at this point in time.
    What he really needs is good people under his command. And that is a really good trick to perform. The people who work for you either make or break you in the long run. And his track record to date has not been good in picking the right people.
    If I were building a wall between here and Mexico I would do it entirely different. As someone with security training in the USAF I have an idea what it would take to make it successful. The plans I have seen so far will fail.
    I hope you do get to Washington, D.C. as part of the Congress. You do have some good ideas. What Congress needs is fresh blood. It needs people willing and able to think outside the box and come up with new and better ideas to solve problems. You do your homework and you will get there.

      There usually are serious reasons if they face deortation after 40 years and yes, deportation is justified. His immigration policies does no go far enough by a long shot.

    Here in Wisconsin, the people I know are about evenly split. Just my 2 cents.
