President Trump’s approval rating soared to new heights in recent days after months of strong economic data and the recent easing of tensions with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un; throwing cold-water on liberal hopes of a ‘blue wave’ during the 2018 midterm elections.
According to a recent survey, the President’s job approval rating popped to 50% over the holiday weekend, with 49% disapproving of Trump’s performance.
“The latest figures include 33% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove,” writes Rasmussen. “Trump’s overall job approval rating is now running ahead of where Barack Obama’s was at this stage of his presidency.”
The boost raised alarm bells throughout Democratic circles in Washington as liberal lawmakers seek to retake the House of Representatives and Senate later this year.
The GOP and President have largely erased strong Democratic gains in recent months after the left-wing legislators failed to secure a highly-anticipated deal on the nation’s ‘Dreamers’ and refused to fund President Trump’s signature campaign promise: The border wall.
CLINTON DELUSION: Hillary Blames SOCIAL MEDIA for 2016 Election Disaster
Twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton found yet another excuse for her dramatic defeat to Donald Trump in 2016; this time blaming “social media platforms” for her electoral disaster over one year ago.
The former Secretary of State issued her ironic warning on “social media platform” Twitter, saying “We should all care about how social media platforms play a part in our democratic process.”
“Because unless it’s addressed it will happen again. The midterms are in 8 months. We owe it to our democracy to get this right, and fast,” she added.

Clinton’s warning comes as the GOP and President Trump enjoy high approval ratings heading into the 2018 midterm elections; erasing Democratic gains after the ‘Schumer Shutdown’ and the widely popular Republican-sponsored tax cuts.
HILLARY’S HEADACHE: Clinton’s Poll Numbers REACH RECORD Lows
Over a year after American voters ushered Donald Trump into the White House, Hillary Clinton’s approval ratings continue to reach record lows; with the doomed presidential nominee still struggling to connect with the public after months of book tours and speaking engagements, reports Fox News.
“Hillary’s favorability rating is down a shocking five points from last June, reaching a record-setting low of just 36 percent.”
According to a new Gallop poll, the former Secretary of State’s favorability rating is down a shocking five points from last June, reaching a record-setting low of just 36 percent. Similarly, her unfavorable rating reached a new high of 61 percent.
Clinton’s terrible stats buck decades of American tradition, where losing candidates tend to see similar numbers or actually increase favorability ratings as voters come together following a rough-and-tumble election cycle.
Hillary’s new numbers are likely related to recent revelations by former DNC boss Donna Brazile that Clinton had secretly “stolen” the Democratic primary from Bernie Sanders, seizing control of the party nearly a year before she was officially nominated. The political fallout reached the highest levels of the Democratic party, with DNC chair Tom Perez admitting they needed to re-examine their rules and regulations heading into the 2018 midterms and beyond.
