President Donald J. Trump has been in office for less than two weeks and the liberal media is predictably doing everything in its power to diminish his presidency. On a regular basis, the left attacks every action President Trump does, from his Executive Order limiting travel from terror-prone nations to keeping his promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Despite the left’s efforts, the American public have seen through their bias and are giving President Trump strong marks for his first two weeks in office. According to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, approximately 49% of voters approve of Trump’s job performance!
The same poll shows that the president’s overall favorable rating is on the rise, with 49% having a favorable opinion.
But what about President Trump’s policies, which the left continues to rail against? Surely the onslaught of negative media coverage has hurt the president’s policies? Well, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday, 49% of American adults “strongly” or “somewhat” support President Trump’s immigration Executive Order. 41% “strongly” or “somewhat” disagreed with the president’s actions.
Obviously, many of those opposed are Democrats. From The Washington Examiner:
The majority of Democrats, 53 percent, said they “strongly disagree” with Trump, while 51 percent of Republicans said they “strongly agree” with the policy to block people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
Thirty-one percent of all respondents said they feel “more safe” with the ban in effect, but 26 percent feel “less safe” as a result of the executive order.
What about President Trump’s Executive Order authorizing the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline? Polling shows the American public is with the president. According to Rasmussen Reports, 51% of voters favor building the pipeline, with 43% opposed to its construction.
Despite the constant, wall-to-wall negative coverage President Trump has received since defeating Hillary Clinton in November, his policies are popular with a majority of Americans.
If he continues to follow through with his campaign promises, it is likely that the president’s popularity will continue to rise even higher.
Are you supportive of President Trump’s first two weeks in office? Are you glad he is fulfilling his campaign promises?
Thank you, President Trump, for restoring the Constitution and law and order in our country. I know it is has not been easy for you and your family and what you have been put through since the inauguration We are so proud of you!
