Did we just get evidence of the Big Red Wave?
To be fair, we’ve already had plenty of evidence night after night after night as Trump draws tens of thousands to his rallys on a daily basis!
It’s like a rock star is in town. Often times bigger than a rock star. I’ve never seen anything like it.
But it looks like we just got some more confirmation, in the terms of hard data….if you can consider popularity polls hard data.
Yes, in a breaking news story out today, The Hill has reported that Trump’s approval rating in the critical period right before Midterms is higher than Obama’s was at the same time.
Here are more details, from our friends over at The Hill:
The poll found Trump’s approval rating at its highest level for that poll yet, at 47 percent. Obama’s approval rating was 45 percent around the same time in 2010, according to a similar NBC/Wall Street Journal poll taken in late October 2010.
Obama’s approval rating was reaching a record low in October 2010, just before his party lost a significant number of seats in the House and Senate.
Trump is a historically unpopular president among the general U.S. population, but consistently retains extremely high levels of Republican support. Recent polls have put him at around a 90 percent approval rating among Republicans.
Many see the midterm elections as a referendum on the current president.
Republicans and Democrats are facing a particularly tough election year, with vulnerable Democratic senators seeking to retain their seats in states Trump won by double digits in 2016 as Republicans deal with widespread Trump disapproval among suburban women and other groups.
The new NBC/WSJ poll found voters more energized than they have been for years, with 72 percent of Democrats telling pollsters they are very interested in the upcoming election as 68 percent of Republicans said the same.
“Midterms are about mobilization, and we are headed into the stretch run with unprecedented enthusiasm among both parties,” Democratic pollster Fred Yang told NBC.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: I don't care what the polls show. If they say Republicans are way up or way down, you get out and vote!
In fact, vote early if you can!
Don't let being sick or job problems or problems at home derail you from voting!
We need to create the biggest Republican turnout in the history of Midterm elections.
Counting on all the Deplorables to show up big league!
