Despite months of full-fledged attacks from the mainstream media and liberal activists across the country, President Trump’s approval rating popped to 50% in recent days in the wake of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle.
According to a recent survey published by Rasmussen Reports, half of American voters approve of the Commander-in-Chief’s job performance with 49% disapproving. 37% of those asked “strongly approve of Trump” with 40% “strongly disapproving.”
The strong polling data comes as the White House fights to advance the confirmation of Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court despite weeks of “obstructionist” Democrats delaying the process.
“This confirmation process has become a national disgrace,” Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee. “The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process, but you have replaced advise and consent with search and destroy.”

“In April 2018, Sadiq Khan was still ahead among those aged 50-64, working class Londoners, those living in outer London and white voters. He’s now behind among all of these groups,” said a professor of politics at Queen Mary University.
“When we first started polling, he was one of the most popular politicians in Britain. Such was his cross-party support, he even had net positive support from Conservative voters. Those days are long gone,” he added.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Polls Show Democrat Advantage 'CUT IN HALF'
As President Trump’s approval rating continues to rise after a string of economic and diplomatic successes, Democrats are seeing their midterm advantage shrinking as both parties set their sights on the 2018 elections.
A surprising new poll shows the generic Democratic advantage shrinking to just six points over generic Republicans; the lowest level seen since President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.
“In the past six months, the generic congressional ballot has been cut in half, from a Democrat lead of roughly 13% in December to about 6% now. While still behind, Republicans are closing the gap, suggesting 2018 may not be the ‘blue wave’ many expect,” writers USA Today.
The stunning survey comes on the heels of a Rasmussen poll that showed President Trump hovering at 50% approval despite months of negative covering surrounding the never-ending Mueller probe.
