A great sign for Republicans has President Trump hitting 51% approval rating on the eve of Midterm elections.
While the historical trend is strongly against an incumbent President winning in Midterm elections, Trump is not your ordinary president.
He doesn’t do things the normal way a politician does them, so maybe he won’t get the normal results.
At least that has to be what he’s hoping for.
And two new data points out today strongly back him up.
First, is the jobs report which was simply stellar.
Take a look:
Second is the polling data.
While Trump doesn't always rely on polls, often finding them to be unreliable, it's always nice when they show something positive.
And they certainly are looking good, take a look:
The Daily Caller had more on the story:
President Donald Trump’s approval rating stands at 51 percent in a daily tracking poll from Rasmussen with 47 percent disapproving of his performance.
The results show an upswing of support for Trump with the midterm elections less than a week away. The tracking poll shows Trump rising from 46-percent approval of his job performance on October 24 with a steady climb since.
Trump has taken to holding a political rally for candidates facing election in 2018 nearly every day and in some cases with two rallies per day. The president has told voters that while he may not be on the ballot he wants his supporters to act as if they are.
Other polls, however, show Trump with a lower approval rating though they acknowledge a relative high for the president since he assumed office nearly two years ago. Data website FiveThirtyEight’s polling aggregator shows Trump with a 42.1-percent approval rating overall with a 52.9-percent disapproval.
RealClearPolitics aggregator similarly shows Trump with a 42 percent approval rating with 54.3 percent disapproval.
So, what do you think?
Will Trump pull off the impossible?
Will he defy the historical stats and win big in the Midterms?
