According to a new Suffolk University/USA Today poll, it seems that although President Donald Trump is seeing historically low approval ratings, that he is still ahead of Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Congress, the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, and the media. Here is the breakdown:
Vice President Mike Pence – 46.8%
President Donald Trump – 44.9%
The media- 37.1%
Republican Party – 36.9%
Democratic Party – 35.7%
Secretary Hillary Clinton – 35.1%
Rep. Elizabeth Warren – 34.2%
Congress – 25.7%
So, it seems the mainstream media is leaving out that the President beat everyone else in the poll except for Vice President Mike Pence who is more of a traditional politician compared to the straightforward and outspoken Trump. What makes the poll more interesting is only 40.9 percent voted for President Trump and only 33 percent identified as Republicans.
In addition, when asked about the choices they considered unfavorable, 55.4 percent of respondents considered Hillary Clinton unfavorable, compared to 47.3 percent who gave President Trump the label.
Another question asked: “Do you feel the country is headed in the right direction or is on the wrong track?”
45.5 percent answered “right direction,” while 42.6 percent said “wrong track.”
Congress did continue its unfavorable streak with a sad 25.7 percent favorability rating.
Some Americans still aren’t used to a brazen president. We’ve been force-fed agendas for years. We are waking up though, as is the rest of the world.
