Trump Approval Rating Steady Despite Fallout From Capitol

(FreedomBeacon)- No matter what the press and left-wing politicians throw at President Donald Trump, the polls repeatedly show him to have huge support among the general public. According to a Rasmussen poll that was published on January 11, the president enjoyed remarkably high approval ratings even after Democrats accused him of inciting a violent insurrection.

Probably because most Americans know it’s a lie…

According to the poll, 48% of likely voters approve of the job that President Trump has done, with 51% disapproving. President Barack Obama enjoyed an approval rating four percent higher than President Trump, but President Obama wasn’t accused of inciting violence in the final days of his presidency.

The president enjoyed a spike in his approval ratings towards the end of 2020, which is one of many reasons why there is speculation of misconduct or wrongdoing in the presidential election. Nonetheless, the president has seen lower ratings than he has right now, most notably in April, June, and July of 2020. And even then, the president was fighting a pandemic from China.

Setting aside those brief dips in support, the president has seen his approval rating sit anywhere between the mid-to-high 40s, to as high as 52% in September of last year.

Rasmussen’s polling on the president’s performance among the general public is among the most extensive, being the only polling organization that ranks his approval rating every day. It has also been the most accurate in terms of election results, being one of just a handful of polling groups that successfully predicted his victory in 2016.

Since January 6, President Trump’s approval ratings have stayed pretty steady. Democrats, however, remain intent on pushing through an impeachment hearing before January 20 when Joe Biden will be inaugurated. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing through impeachment as quickly as possible despite the president’s huge amount of support across America.

Which will hardly do anything for “unity.”

One article of impeachment was introduced by the Democrats on Monday, January 11. The resolution attempted to paint President Trump as having encouraged his supporters to violently attack police officers and members of Congress.

They cited a line from his speech in D.C. on January 6, where he said, “if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country any more.”

Just how many times have the Democrats urged their supporters to “fight” President Trump?

Just asking…
