President Trump’s Rise Shows US Voters Do Not Care About Stormy or the Mueller Probe
A mixture of positives and the public’s rejection of scandal are responsible for President Donald Trump’s rising approval ratings, political analyst Scott Rasmussen said Tuesday.
“It’s obviously clear the President has been getting a bounce in the opinion polls,” Rasmussen, publisher of ScottRasmussen.com and editor at large at Ballotpedia, said in a TV interview.
“I’m not 100% sure it’s because of NKorea, it may be because the smear campaigns, the scandal allegations, have switched from being about Russian collusion to about an affair with Stormy Daniels.
“To be blunt, people are not shocked. They did not elect Donald Trump believing he was a choir boy. It may be an indication that things are getting better, the economy is getting better.”
A new CBS poll shows President Trump’s approval rating has moved up to 40%, the 1st time in a year it has hit that mark.
And the poll-tracking website FiveThirtyEight notes for the past 66 days, President Trump’s approval rating has been between 40.0 and 42.1%.
