President Trump’s Approval at 48%, Millennials Spike

A new nationwide Zogby poll of likely voters showed US President Donald Trump’s job approval standing at 48%, with his popularity growing among millennials, where he registered an approval of 50%, as opposed to voters age 65 and up, where he came in at 44%.

The President’s job approval is strongest in the East and South regions of the country, each at 52% approval.

Men were more likely to approve of his job at 56% than women, where he scored 41%, although President Trump’s numbers among women were up from the month prior.

When it comes to race

President Trump registered highest among White voters at 56%, Hispanic voters gave him 39%, and Black voters gave him 16%.

Republicans were more likely to approve of President Trump’s job at 87%, his numbers climbed with Independents at 41% and Democrats, 20%.

President Trump’s approval rating matches that of former President Barack Hussein Obama at the same point in his Presidency, Zogby noted.

Another Zogby poll showed that a majority of voters, 56%, want to support their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms when they hear Hollywood celebrities speak out against gun control. The strongest support was among millennials age 18-29, who registered 65%.

Support for the right to bear arms was strong among Hispanics at 54%, with Blacks at 46% support. White voters registered highest with 59% support.

Along party lines, Republicans scored highest with 86% in support, but Democrats and Independents both came in with 47% support.

According to the pollster, the numbers showed that, as the Fall midterm elections draw near, the gun debate “could be a tricky strategy for Democrats looking to take back power in both houses of Congress.”

The polls were conducted at the end of February and had a margin of error of ± 3.3%.

The numbers indicate the Democratic Party is in shambles.

Have a terrific weekend.
