So I'm not super good with math, but help me out on this one….
If you are hitting 52% of support among "likely voters" does that mean you are on your way to winning a second term?
Oh I think so!
Tremendous news out today as President Trump's approval rating continues to spike after the Republican National Convention.
It looks like Americans liked what they saw with Trump, and not so much with Hiden Biden.
Check this out:
Here are more details from Morning Consult:
President Donald Trump needed a convention bounce — and he got one, emerging from the Republican National Convention with an improved standing against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, fueled by gains among white voters and those in the suburbs, though he still trails the former vice president nationwide.
A new Morning Consult poll conducted Friday that asked 4,035 likely voters which candidate they would pick found Biden leading Trump by 6 percentage points, 50 percent to 44 percent. It marked a 4-point improvement from his standing heading into the convention on Aug. 23, when Biden led 52 percent to 42 percent. Friday’s poll had a 2-point margin of error, compared with a 1-point margin of error for responses gathered among 4,810 likely voters on Aug. 23.
The movement stands in contrast to voters’ reaction to the Democratic National Convention held the previous week, when Biden’s lead over Trump went statistically unchanged, and harks back to the bump in support that Trump saw after the 2016 Republican National Convention. However, due to a smaller share of undecided voters, Biden, who continues to have about half of the electorate’s support, remains in a significantly stronger position than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was four years ago.
The poll results come after a convention that was less watched than the Democratic National Convention a week before. According to The New York Times, an average of 19.4 million people watched the Republican gathering each night on live TV, compared to 21.6 million who watched the DNC; Trump’s acceptance speech was viewed live by 23.8 million, less than Biden’s 24.6 million the week before.
And from Rasmussen Reports:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 42% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of 0.
