Trump Approval Rating Leaps Ahead of Obama’s at Same Time in Presidency

…and that’d WITHOUT No. 44 being impeached!

There is no denying that Donald Trump is wildly popular.  His packed-to-the-gills rallies have been raucous and enthusiastic events, spurring on a record-setting fundraising push that inches him ever closer to victory in the coming 2020 election.

This popularity doesn’t seem to waver at all.  Ever.  Folks who voted for Trump will vote for him again, and they’ll do their darnedest to convince their loved ones to consider him as well.

In fact, even in the midst of his impeachment, Donald Trump has a higher approval rating than Barack Obama at the same time in their first terms.

Trump’s job approval rating now sits at 49 percent, with a 94 percent approval rating among Republicans and a 42 percent rating with independents, both numbers being highs for Trump’s presidency. The GOP itself is also seeing a significant boost.

With Trump’s impeachment trial nearing its end, his approval rating among Democrats has decreased from 10 percent in early January to 7 percent now. The 87-point gap between Democrats and Republicans is the greatest difference in any Gallup poll, Gallup said. The prior record, 86 points, was set by the ratings of President Barack Obama during the time of the 2012 election and was matched by earlier polls during Trump’s presidency.

Barack Obama was never impeached, either, making Trump’s number vastly more impressive.
