President Trump’s approval rating hit an all-time high in July despite non-stop media attacks surrounding his historic Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin; smashing estimates after receiving widespread praise from rank-and-file Republicans.
The Wall Street Journal survey showed 45% of voters approve of the President’s performance, up one point from just one month ago with a whopping 88% of Republicans supporting the Commander-in-Chief.
“President Trump’s approval rating reached an all-time high this month buoyed by strong support from Republicans,” writes the Washington Examiner. “Of the four previous presidents, only George W. Bush, after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, had a higher approval rating with his own party at the same point in his presidency.”
The poll comes days after liberal legislators and the mainstream media trashed the President’s face-to-face meeting with Putin, with former CIA director John Brennan going so far as to call the summit “treasonous.”

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: New Polls Show Democrats' Advantage COLLAPSING
Democrats across the country are sounding the alarm after new polling shows liberal candidates are slowly losing ground to their GOP opponents just months before the high-stakes 2018 midterm elections.
According to new surveys published by Real Clear Politics, the Democrat advantage has largely vanished; shrinking from a whipping 13 points in December to just four points at the end of May.
The poll cites a list of Trump’s achievements as the motivating factor behind the ‘Trump Bump,’ saying tax cuts helped energize the President’s base while average Americans across the country are beginning to “question” the entire Mueller investigation.
“There’s a couple of things going on. I think the good economic news is starting to break through. I think people are starting to question where the Mueller investigation is going. I think it had kept the president down for a while. And I think the tax cuts energized the Republican base and are playing a role in the president’s improving fortunes,” writes the survey.

‘ANIMAL’ RIGHTS? Polls Show Americans SIDE with TRUMP on MS-13
A new poll conducted after the President’s fiery rhetoric towards violent gang members show the majority of Americans side with Trump’s remarks; saying it’s “fair” to describe MS-13 members as “animals.”
According to the survey conducted by Harvard/Harris over 56% of those asked believe labeling the criminal cartel as “animals” was a “fair description,” compared to 44% who believed the term was an “unfair” characterization.
The poll comes days after President Trump made national headlines when he described illegal MS-13 members residing in US prisons as “animals,” sparking outrage from liberal politicians who claimed he was referring to all immigrants from Central America and Mexico.
“We are taking people out of the country, you wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a rate that’s never happened before,” said the President during a round-table discussion at the White House.
Senator Chuck Schumer pounced on the President’s comments within hours, saying his “great-grand parents” weren’t “animals.”
When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t “animals,” and these people aren’t either.
