A new survey from Gallup shows Americans’ general satisfaction with life in the United States is at the highest level since 2005; throwing more cold-water on the Democrats’ chances to take the White House in 2020.
“The latest survey finds a further increase in national satisfaction, with 45% now satisfied, the highest since February 2005,” Gallup reported.
“Trump’s approval rating may be higher because of the Senate’s acquitting him in the impeachment trial. Bill Clinton’s job approval ratings also were higher spanning the time between his impeachment in late 1998 and his acquittal in early 1999,” continued Gallup. “Americans’ generally positive and improved perceptions of the state of the nation are also likely a contributing factor. These factors may be driving Republicans’ and independents’ ratings of Trump higher, but not Democrats’.”
