In spite of Democrats’ constant attempts to stifle out the flame of pro-USA nationalism that our country so desperately needs right now, support for the only 2020 presidential candidate who wants to keep making America even greater is only going up – especially in the Southern American states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
A new poll conducted by NBC News found that 54% of Southern voters support President Trump, which is up 2% from last September.
The survey also found that 20% of Southern U.S. voters believe race relations are getting better (up 6% from September 2018) underneath the Trump administration, while 44% think they’re “about the same”; and that a whopping 72% are happy with the economy that Trump has boosted like crazy over the past few years.

NBC News has the specifics of the poll's findings:
President Donald Trump's approval ratings in the South have ticked upward, with 54 percent of voters giving a thumbs-up to the way he's handling his job, according to a new NBC News|SurveyMonkey online poll.
The survey of voters in 11 southern states found 38 percent said they "strongly approve" of the way Trump's handling his job, and 16 percent who said they "somewhat approve." That's up slightly from a poll in September of last year, which put his total approval at 52 percent.
Those numbers are higher than his national approval rating, which NBC News reported Friday had risen to 48 percent.
The approval ratings swung wildly in some individual states in the polling. Trump has a 60 percent approval rating in Alabama, but just 48 percent approval in neighboring Georgia, the polls showed.
The polling was conducted between July 2 and July 16, so much of it was completed before Trump's tweets on July 14 calling for four Democratic congresswomen to "go back" to the "totally broken and crime infested places from which they came." The error estimate for registered voters is plus or minus 2.3 percentage points.
The survey also found slightly more support for former Vice President Joe Biden in the South than the rest of the country. Twenty-seven percent of Democrats said if the primary or caucus was being held in their state today, they'd vote for Biden vs. 25 percent nationwide.
The second most popular candidates were Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Both had 14 percent of respondents say they'd vote for them. Thirteen percent said they'd vote for Sen. Kamala Harris, and 8 percent said they'd vote for former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke.
Southerners said they were happy with the current state of the economy, with 72 percent of respondents saying the national economy is "very good" or "fairly good."
The Epoch Times also commented on the survey:
According to the recent NBC News|SurveyMonkey online poll (pdf), conducted between July 2 and 16, 38 percent of Americans in the south “strongly approve” of Trump’s job as president, while 16 percent expressed that they “somewhat approve” his handling of the job. This is up from a total approval of 52 percent based on the same poll conducted in September last year.
Meanwhile, 45 percent expressed that they “somewhat disapprove” or “strongly disapprove” Trump’s job as president.
According to NBC News, much of the poll was conducted prior to Trump writing a series of Twitter posts between July 14 and 16 which ignited outrage, especially among Democrats. Most notably, Trump called on “‘progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen” to “go back” to their countries to help fix the “totally broken and crime-infested places” before returning to the United States to “show us how it is done.”
The posts eventually sparked a public feud between the president and four far-left members of the Democratic party—Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.). Apart from Omar, who was born in Somalia, the other three lawmakers were born in the United States.
The polling data also found that a majority of respondents expressed disapproval of the way Congress was handling its job.
Seventy-one percent of Americans said they “somewhat disapprove” or “strongly disapprove” Congress’s handling of its job, while only 28 percent said they “somewhat approve” or “strongly approve.”
This poll comes after a recent Reuters-Ipsos public opinion poll found that Trump’s net approval among members of the Republican Party rose by 5 percentage points to 72 percent, compared with a similar poll that ran last week.
