Trump Approval Ratings Soar As He Takes Aim at Corona Crisis

Despite constant attacks from the left-wing media, President Trump’s approval ratings are on the rise, largely based on his handling of the coronavirus crisis.

The president’s job approval rating jumped 4 percentage points in under one week, according to a new Harris Poll.

Mr. Trump’s approval rating jumped to 53% in Harris’ national surveys conducted March 17 and 18, Tuesday and Wednesday, which was up from 49% in polling taken on March 14 and 15.

Support for the president is tied to the public’s view of his handling of the coronavirus outbreak and his approach to foreign affairs. Approval of Mr. Trump’s management of the coronavirus crisis rose 5 percentage points to 56% in polling conducted this week. His handling of foreign affairs rose 3 percentage points to 52% in the same timeframe.

The Harris Poll also found a majority of respondents do not fear dying from the coronavirus. Seventy-two percent of respondents said they do not fear they could die as a result of contracting the virus.

An ABC poll last Friday, also showed that the president’s approval ratings are on the rise.

That survey showed that 55 percent of Americans approve of Mr. Trump’s strategy compared to 43 percent who disapprove.

The ratings are a sharp reversal from the week prior, where 54 percent had disapproved, but 43 percent had liked the president’s handling of the crisis.

The uptick in the president’s ratings comes after the administration took a variety of new response measures over the past week.

Since last Friday, Trump has declared a national emergency, expanded the European travel ban, urged against group gatherings of more than 10 people, signaled his support for dispensing checks to affected Americans, and invoked the Defense Production Act — although he has stopped short of actually triggering the statute.

The president has also often led the daily press briefings of the White House coronavirus task force, announcing new federal actions, taking questions from reporters and generally appearing more solemn regarding the nature of the threat facing the U.S.

    President Trump has worked diligently to fulfill his promises and has been very successful in spite of the left’s constant resistance. If the Democrats would stop their hate campaign and trying to stop his progress our nation would prosper and the divisions caused by the Dems.would heal and we could again be one nation under God , indivisible and growing stronger.

    Think you can find a writer who can spell? Approval ratings can SOAR, which means that they can rise speedily to a higher level. Approval ratings cannot SORE. SORE is what you get when you sit on a tack.

    I am very surprised and happy with the way he is handling this crisis. I like his push to give all Americans Amounts of money to help in this Situation. I would question now how somebody like myself who started his business just 9 months ago will be able to get any assistance because my business relies heavily on dealing directly with customers and it has been impact good greatly in the past 5 weeks since people in South Florida. And my business was doing well with growth in such a short period of time. This is greatly impacting small businesses as I can see some even than the myself.

They way they are all consumed with impeachment of our President to the point that they will not do for the legal citizens. They only want to help themselves and the illegals when they are trying to impeach Trump. Most worthless politicians we have ever had.
