President Trump’s approval ratings popped to their highest levels since March of 2017 this week, with the American public supporting the Commander-in-Chief’s agenda following his annual State of the Union address Tuesday night.
According to a new Rasmussen report, the President’s daily-tracking data shows 49% of likely US voters approve of Trump’s job performance, rising to numbers higher than Election Day 2016 -when the President had a 46.1 approval rating.
“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Trump making substantial gains after Tuesday’s State of the Union speech, and achieving his highest voter approval since March 7, 2017,” says the poll.
The poll shows that 35% of registered voters “strongly approve” of the President’s agenda; likely fueled by strong economic growth and record-shattering stock market figures.
“Rasmussen was among the few national polls that accurately predicted the election outcome which vaulted Trump to power,” writes the Daily Mail.
“Unlike other polls that ask questions in live telephone interviews, it relies on push-button phone calls – meaning voters who like Trump’s performance in office aren’t required to say so out loud to another person,” the author adds.
GREAT AGAIN: $2 TRILLION Added to US Economy Under President Trump
The United States Stock Market has added over $2 trillion to the American economy since President Trump won the 2016 presidential election; smashing expectations and further signaling a robust recovery following years of stagnant growth under Barack Obama.
According to CNBC, the S&P 500 stock index grew by $2.04 trillion since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton last November; soaring after the election on renewed hopes of significant tax reform and the reduction of burdensome regulations imposed by Trump’s predecessor.
The largest gains were seen in information technology, financial services, healthcare, and materials.
President Trump now sets his sights on reforming the nation’s complicated and outdated tax code, a key campaign promise to deliver tax relief to millions of American families and businesses.
“People are in wait-and-see mode in terms of tax reform. We get a bit of a pop every time it gets mentioned, but I think the market is in a bit of disbelief,” said one market strategist.
Analysts also credit President Trump’s pledge to rebuild the American military with the massive rise in stocks associated with Defense contracts, reporting some businesses have seen growth of 30% since the US election last fall.
GREAT AGAIN: Dow SOARS 31% Under TRUMP, Best Year Since GREAT DEPRESSION
As Democrats and Republicans scramble to reach a last-minute agreement to avert a federal government shutdown, the stock market continues to smash records under President Trump; soaring 31% in his first year in office and posting the greatest gains since President Franklin Roosevelt.
According to CNBC, the Dow has surged over 31% since President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, marking the largest increase since Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s first year in office which saw the Dow “skyrocket” by 96.5% following the Great Depression.
“This is all about policy,” said a chief investment strategist at Baird. “You’ve got lower taxes, less regulation and confidence in the economy is high. Things are firing on all cylinders.”
President Trump rode a wave of economic promises and policies into the Oval Office throughout the 2016 presidential race; vowing to put “America First” and unleash “the power of the American worker.”
Trump touted the economic gains throughout the country at a rally in Pennsylvania Thursday, saying the US is “coming back bigger and better.”
“We are coming back bigger and better and stronger than ever,” said the President. “At the center of America’s resurgence are the massive tax cuts that I just signed into law.”
