President Trump Approval Rating Mostly Unchanged Despite Unmerited Blame for Capital Riot


There have been several claims lately that President Donald Trump’s apporval rating is at the lowest point ever of his presidency.

These claims have widely been pushed by the mainstream fake news media.

However, several other polls paint a different picture where the president’s approval rating is actually relatively unchanged, especially among Republicans.

The media and the Democrats are dersperate to kill Prsident Trump’s popularity, as evidence by their lies of his involvement in the Capital riot. 

These more optimistic polls show that Americans may be done listening to the media entirely.

The Hill released this story claiming that president Trump's approval rating was relatively unchanged:

A poll released by NBC News on Sunday morning found that President Trump’s approval rating has remained relatively unchanged following deadly rioting by his supporters at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month.

The new poll found that 43 percent of voters gave Trump a positive job approval rating, a result consistent with polling as recently as just before the November election. More than half of those surveyed — 55 percent — disapproved of Trump’s performance in office, however.

An overwhelming majority of Republicans — 87 percent — approved of Trump, a small drop from the 89 percent who said the same before the November election. Five percent of Democrats said in the new poll that they approved of Trump, as did 44 percent of independents.

Just five percent of Republicans who voted for Trump told pollsters they now regretted casting their ballots for him, while two-thirds said their feelings had not changed.

The Hill can't seem to remain consistant with their own stories, as some Twitter users have pointed out:

However, NBC News also reported on the unchanged rating:

A new NBC News poll found that 43 percent of voters nationwide gave Trump a positive job approval rating, just barely down from 45 percent who said the same before the November election and the 44 percent who approved of his performance shortly after he took office in 2017.

The same poll found that 35 percent of voters — including 74 percent of Republicans but just 30 percent of independents and 3 percent of Democrats — believe that President-elect Joe Biden did not win the 2020 election legitimately.

Sixty-one percent of all voters — but just 21 percent of Republicans — say Biden did win legitimately.

While a record 10 House Republicans broke ranks to vote for the president's impeachment last week, Trump’s approval rating among Republicans in the poll shows few signs that GOP voters are widely disillusioned with the president.

Almost 9-in-10 Republicans — 87 percent — give Trump a thumbs-up, compared with 89 percent who said the same before the November election.

And even for the half of Republicans who say they prioritize the GOP generally over allegiance to Trump, his high approval remains unmoved by recent events.

Among Republicans who say their primary loyalty is to Trump over the party, 98 percent approve of his performance. For those who say they prioritize the party over the president, his approval still stands at 81 percent — virtually unchanged from October 2020. (These findings contrast with some other recent national polls showing Trump’s job rating lower. Unlike other surveys that sampled all U.S. adults, NBC’s poll surveyed registered voters.)

In the NBC survey, nearly a third of GOP voters surveyed — 28 percent — said that Trump’s words and actions related to the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6 actually reinforced their vote for Trump.

Just 5 percent said they now regretted their support for him, and fully two-thirds — 66 percent — said their feelings about Trump had not changed.

One thing we know for sure:

The media cannot be trusted, and neither can the polls.
