A new Hill – HarrisX poll showed President Trump’s approval rating reached 48 percent among registered voters, up 2% from earlier in the month.
The Hill reports that the biggest increase in approval was from voters under the age of 35. The poll found:
Stronger support for Trump among younger voters compared to older adults. Fifty percent of adults under the age of 35 approved of Trump’s job as president, as did 55 percent of voters age 35 to 49. By contrast, 57 percent of 50-64-year-olds and 55 percent of those 65 and up disapproved.
AP reports that Trump rallies are “among the nation’s biggest events.” Following suit with Democrats, AP spent more time discussing COVID-19 than the people attending Trump’s rallies.
But that doesn’t deter attendees. Ysabel Benejam, 69, of West Bloomfield, Michigan, who waited more than four hours in the rain in near-freezing to see Trump on Tuesday said, “I’m not afraid at all. We need to step back into normality.”
Incumbent Presidents have rarely passed a 50% approval rating, the last being Bill Clinton at 55.1%. By contrast, George W. Bush and Barack Obama had an approval rating of 49.4% and 47.9 respectively. Obama’s first term average approval rating was 49.1%, almost identical to Trump.
