(Liberty Bell) – If you happen to flip on mainstream media networks like CNN or MSNBC, you’d swear up and down the entire country hates President Trump, even more so now that we are in the midst of this horrific coronavirus pandemic. The coverage these organizations offer is nothing but around the clock Trump Derangement Syndrome, a desperate attempt to slam the commander-in-chief over anything and everything they can nitpick about.
However, despite their best efforts to create a negative spin and pin the blame for this whole situation on Trump, it seems the American people are pretty well satisified with how he’s been handling things.
In fact, his approval rating shot up to its highest in two years. It now currently sits at 61 percent.
Here’s more from BizPacReview:
While the Left and their media henchmen have been fear-mongering and catastrophizing every facet of the coronavirus outbreak to attack Trump, the crisis underscores that the public sees through media gaslighting.
“People are rallying around him though, of course, we see differences between Democrats, Republicans, and independents,” Karlyn Bowman, a public opinion analyst at the American Enterprise Institute, told The Hill. “Those could become powerful over time as the coronavirus continues.”
Fifty percent of registered voters approved of President Trump’s job performance, while 50% disapproved, according to the latest Harris/Hill poll.
Not surprisingly, the approval ratings were split down party lines: 85% of Republican voters approved of Trump, while just 19% of Democratic voters felt the same. Independent voters were evenly split at 50-50.
Mainstream media outlets have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at President Trump since he took office in 2017, but they’ve really ramped up the attacks on him ever since the coronavirus outbreak reached out shores. They’ve called him racist for using the term “Chinese virus” and went so far as to label him “xenophobic” for limiting travel to Europe, despite the fact that such a measure being necessary to stopping the spread of the virus.
Then, of course, the World Health Organization comes out and says that Europe is actually the “coronavirus epicenter” and then Trump is heaped with praise. The media are sycophants to the core when it comes to their cause. And right now, their cause is destroying Donald Trump and his presidency.
And yet, despite the best efforts of liberal journalists, 61 percent of American citizens are happy with how Trump has handled the situation. That’s got to leave progressives feeling quite irritated, wouldn’t you agree?
Now, the fact his approval rating is going up doesn’t mean he’s starting to soften up Democrats toward voting for him. That’s probably not likely to happen anytime soon. In fact, despite the great efforts and leadership he’s showing in the middle of this crisis, Democrats are still unwilling to let go of the past and focus on the future.
Trump still has his work cut out for him election wise.
