President Donald Trump's approval rating has increased dramatically since he was elected in 2016, according to analysis from The New York Times...Millions of Americans who did not like the president in 2016 now say they do," the Times' Nate Cohn writes. "Over all, his personal favorability rating has increased by about 10 percentage points among registered voters since Election Day 2016, to 44% from 34%, according to Upshot estimates."

Well just goes to show you after all the looney lies and name calling the Democrats have waged against Trump for years now it has no effect whatsoever other than to demonstrate they have nothing to offer that voters are interested in and their gig is up. They have cried wolf on Trump so many times in so many ways that if something legitimately threatening to his candidacy came up no one (but their useful idiots) would believe it! Trump has them over a barrel and all he had to do was be Trump! They did the rest to themselves showing America what they, the Democrats and the media, are really about and that has nothing to do with keeping America great!
NewsMax is owned by a close personal friend of Trump and regularly publishes pro-Trump articles. The NewsMax article spins a piece by a NYT conservative writer.
Trump's actual approval rating is unchanged at this time from when he first arrived in office.
His polls depend on a 90%+ approval by Republicans. He has an approval only in the 30s among independents. He needs them to win re-election.

When the recession hits in the next 6-12 months (according to experts), Trump's low approval and high disapproval rating will get quite a bit worse.
Trump and NewsMax owner:
Promisem, You and I have both worked for newspapers so we both know how syndication works. This is not an article written by Newsmax, it is an article written by the New York Times. One of the larges newspaper syndication sources in the United States.
Here is a link to the article in the New York Times.

Mike, the NewsMax article was written by Theodore Bunker of NewsMax and not by Nate Cohn of NYT.
My bigger point is that Trump is relying on a high approval rating from only Republicans when he really needs to boost his support from independents.
Can we agree the subject of the Newsmax article was the NYT article?
Republicans and some Democrats who are secretly Trump voters.
They just don’t want to admit it to pollsters or their liberal friends.
If a recession hits, I am sure you will be proven correct.
But that is not what Mike is pointing out.
What he is saying is that only 34% of Americans thought favorably of Trump in 2016.
Today 44% think favorably of him. That number is rising.
Ken, I don't think it makes sense to compare Trump's approval rating on some random dates when Obama was still in office with Trump's rating as President. It's apples and oranges.
Besides, Republicans were split among other Republican candidates in 2016. Trump has simply gained some support by Republicans and not by independents.
Here is another prediction.
Not only Trump will win in 2020, he will be ranked higher than president Obama by historians when all is said and done.
Clinton was the first “black President”...
Obama was the real first Black president...
Trump will be known for the President who actually helped black improve their condition...with jobs, and higher wages and getting out of prison and getting off welfare...
PP, a question.
After ALL of the negative things that have been written about President Donald Trump by the press, how is this possible? How can his popularity increase? Do you have any thoughts?
I'm certain a poll can be found to dispute that.
Polls don't mean anything anymore.
The only poll that matters is the election.
Trump will be reelected in 2020.
If the democrats continueto run on a socialist platform, I'd say you are correct.
The Dems appear to be heading off the Far Leftist Cliff, so yeah, Trump will win.
Is that any different than the Far Right Wacko Cliff?
Gun massacres, war with Iran, trade war with China, skyrocketing deficits, declining economy, tax cuts for rich people, disgusted allies, anti blacks, anti Hispanics, anti Muslims.
That's quite a cliff!

If President Trump is "doing a bad job so far" then why are his approval numbers rising?Despite the partisan climate we're seeing since the election - Americans are starting to warm up to this president and his approval rating climbed to 55%

So President Obama's approval rating after one month is...only 68%. Our expectations of him on Inauguration night were too high. His approval rating back on Jan. 20 was around 80%.

when I went to a private club/restaurant that we belong to. All of them voted for Obama, but none are happy with him. One wants Hillary to challenge him in 2012, two said they'd vote dem in 2012 if someone other than BO is running, one is definitely voting Republican in 2012, and two have...
