AMAZING! Rasmussen Poll Shows Trump at 50% Approval Rating Three Points Higher than Obama at Same Point in His Presidency
Gateway Pundit ^ | 07/31/2020 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 07/31/2020 7:52:46 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

President Trump’s Rasmussen approval rating surged to 50% on Friday.

This is despite the continued media onslaught and the outrageous smears over his handling of the coronavirus.

Barack Obama had a 47% approval rating at the same point in his presidency.

And, as Rasmussen reported earlier, Obama had a 95% positive media.
Trump has a 95% negative media.

The fake news media and their tech giant cohorts are doing everything they can to sway the election.
So far it’s not working.

FROM RASMUSSEN REPORTS (JULY 31,2020):

https://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/prez_track_jul31

(EXCERPT)

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 39% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 43% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -4.

Wow, that is amazing, esp. with the overwhelmingly skewed media coverage, night and day, with no letup. Another consideration: Obama's numbers were higher than actual because people didn't want to be seen criticizing him, while Trump's are lower than actual because people are afraid to praise him publicly. Amazing.

How does this reconcile with all these polls showing Biden 15 points ahead???

Are there huge numbers of people who approve of Trump’s job performance, but then are going to vote for Biden instead? That’s what you would have to believe, if all these polls are to be taken seriously.

Even Tucker is in on that game. Said a couple of nights ago that Trump’s approval rating has tanked and mentioned the double digit lead by Biden.

“But Senior Citizen Biden is going to win by 25%.”
My opinion, Biden will never get to the ballot box.
He is bread and circus entertainment until the big switcheroo just before the ballots have to be printed.
This will keep all eyes off or candidate X until the time is correct to trot her out for the photo shoots.
If, however, it looks as if Trump stages a big comeback and can’t be beat, they can let Joe go ahead and take the fall.

Plugs always stuffs Franklins in our boots and g-strings. Trump never even comes by. So his approval among the poles is low, while Biden's is high.

Answer: He isn’t.
Nobody can lose to Sleepy Joe by 12%.
Did you see the Dem Primaries before everyone was forced out apart from Sanders? Good ole Joe couldn’t even manage third place in Iowa.

You should know by now that these polls select MORE (LOTS MORE ) Democrats than Republicans in their polling.

“Another consideration: Obama's numbers were higher than actual because people didn't want to be seen criticizing him, while Trump's are lower than actual because people are afraid to praise him publicly.”

Similarly, as a millennial caller to Rush’s show observed yesterday, there is now enormous social pressure to show you’re “in with the struggle” as regards BLM and other leftist causes.

Ergo, many who want nothing to do with BLM et al show their “support” on social media and elsewhere in the hopes of being left alone.

Could it be that Tucker is doing his part in keeping conservatives on their toes for election day? There are some that will stay home if they believe Trump has it in the bag.

Can you imagine an aide having to wake Biden up to tell him he won? Or much, much better, that he lost? The way he is slipping, would he even remember?

It could be as simply as people saying “Yea, he’s good”, but afraid to say they’re voting for him for re-election (i.e., ‘keeping an open mind’).

In fact, I wouldn’t put it past the Left to call up people, ask them who they’re voting for, and then tear into them (or worse) if they say Trump.

That would be awesome in an election. But Democrats governors and revolutionary socialist judges will be putting their thumb on the scale. If they shut down the economy for four months and launched riots nationwide, they will make their move on Election Day. This will be a 2000 election on steroids. They are going to try to launch a color revolution in support of a president that they claim “won” no matter what the votes say
