After a new poll showed that President Donald Trump’s approval rating have risen to 51%, their appears to be a shift in this coming November’s election.
That’s great news for the Trump administration, and more is on the way.
A new poll from Economist/YouGov paints a much more enthusiastic portrait of Trump supporters in contrast to Biden supporters.
The Washington Examiner has the story:
President Trump, scratching back to just 4-6 points behind challenger Joe Biden, is being bolstered by new polls showing a surge in his approval rating and a widening “enthusiasm gap” favoring him over his Democratic foe.
Just out is the daily Rasmussen Reports presidential approval rating for Trump at 51%.
Notably, said Rasmussen, at this stage of his presidency, former President Barack Obama had a 44% approval rating.
Add to that new polling from Economist/YouGov that shows the president’s supporters far more enthusiastic about him, and voting for him, than those of Biden’s.
When asked, “How do you feel about the presidential candidates listed below?” 40% of Biden’s supporters said “enthusiastic” compared to 68% of Trump’s supporters.
And when asked, “How enthusiastic are you about voting for president in the upcoming presidential election in November?” 53% of Biden’s supporters said “extremely or very enthusiastic” compared to 76% of Trump supporters.
President Donald Trump's base has always been enthusiastic, and it appears the closer we get to election day, the more enthusiastic they become.
President Trump himself is definitely not lacking for enthusiasm.
He posted this to Twitter:
Meanwhile, there's just not too much to be said about Joe Biden's sad campaign.
Quite frankly, there seems to be no passion behind his campaign or his voter base.
This isn't completely shocking.
Several have predicted that Trump supporters would be extremely enthusiastic this election.
Ronna Mcdaniel wrote a piece on voter enthusiasm just over a week ago for Fox News:
This weekend marks 100 days out from Election Day. As I reflect on the last four years and think ahead to the next few months, I’m reminded of an instance that occurred roughly 100 days into President Trump’s administration. I was chaperoning my daughter’s class trip to Washington, DC.
While millions of Americans were excited about the new administration, you couldn’t exactly count my daughter’s classmates among them.
Their attitudes towards the new president were largely negative, and even when given a chance opportunity to meet with a senior member of the administration, their reaction was blasé, at best.
This initial tepidness to President Trump seemed to speak to the concerns of some who were frankly unsure if the billionaire businessman could shake up the status quo in Washington and deliver on his America-First agenda.
Flash forward a few years and I was chaperoning the same trip for my son’s class but this time, the students’ reaction was completely different.
A couple years and countless Promises-Made, Promises-Kept later, this time they couldn’t get their hands on the MAGA hats at the gift shop fast enough and couldn’t wait to show off just how proud they and the people of Michigan were of their president. The change in attitude was surely a reflection of the conversations taking place at their own dinner tables and the impact this president had had on their own families’ lives.
This is just one snapshot of many that shows the record-breaking enthusiasm President Trump enjoys because of the record-breaking achievements he has secured for the American people. As Election Day approaches, it’s because of this enthusiasm that President Trump will carry the day once again.
Americans of all political stripes are excited to get out and vote for this president for the simple reason that his policies have made their lives better.
They know his tax cuts, combined with regulatory relief and energy independence, created the best jobs market our country have ever seen. More importantly, they know these pro-growth policies will do so again as we continue to recover from the coronavirus and rebuild our economy.
We’ve watched President Trump put our enemies on notice and stand up for America on the world stage. We’ve seen him negotiate free and fairer trade deals that will foster economic prosperity for our farmers and manufacturers in the years and decades ahead.
In the face of the worst public health crisis the world has witnessed in a century, Americans recognize President Trump’s bold and unprecedented response to the coronavirus has saved countless lives.
His marshaling a ‘whole-of-America’ approach is why the United States leads the world in testing, our case fatality rate is down 75 percent since mid-April, and why we are on our way to producing an effective vaccine against the virus.
As elected Democrats in cities across the country cave to the left-wing mob and let their communities devolve into anarchy and chaos, President Trump is standing up for law and order and the American people stand with him. Recent polling found Americans overwhelming oppose defunding the police – instead, they want someone who will defend the police.
The Biden campaign probably isn't going to gain any more enthusiasm going forward.
At this point, the Democrats' only hope is to keep attacking President Trump, and hope that nobody remembers that Joe Biden is the alternative.
Everytime Sleepy Joe gets in front of the camera, he takes minutes to speak one sentence that usually doesn't even make sense.
