On the anniversary of Donald Trumps historic election victory, there are two views of the presidents performance thus far.
The prevailing media narrative is that Trumps presidency is floundering. His approval ratings are languishing in the mid-30s and his legislative agenda has yet to get off the ground. Media outlets have been publishing buyers remorse pieces almost nonstop since the early weeks of Trumps presidency.
But among his supporters, Trumps presidency is already viewed as a success. Most Trump voters credit him with at least trying to follow through on his campaign promises, particularly his pledges to boost the economy, appoint conservative judges, renegotiate trade deals, and reform the immigration, healthcare and federal tax systems.
In fact, almost without exception, the 30 or so residents of key Trump counties that Ive canvassed in recent days say they would vote the same way they did one year ago.
In Grant County, W. Va., I couldnt find anyone who regretted their vote for Trump. Allen Evans, who represents part of Grant County in the West Virginia House of Delegates, and Bill Hamilton, who represents nearby Upshur County, both said they think Trump would win more votes today than he did a year ago. Thats saying something since 88 percent of Grant County voters cast their ballots for Trump in 2016, the highest share of any of the states 55 counties.
Keep doing exactly what youre doing, because all my friends and relatives agree with what youre doing, Evans said when asked if he had advice for the president. Ill ditto that, Hamilton added.
For the people who live [in Grant County], Trump offered a change and it was worth taking a risk, said Ray Blum, who owns a Dairy Queen in Petersburg, W. Va. Trump has been a breath of fresh air.

I am JOYFUL as we celebrate the one year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s election!
V A L I D A T E D !
This is my line of reasoning.
Trump did _____, or said _____. I’m not sure how I feel about that.
Would you rather have Hitlery Clinton as president?
I’m over whatever it is. Resume daily activity.
Go, President Trump, MAGA!
I’m more deploreable now than I was a year ago.
Unfortunately, Menendez will now be replaced by another RAT.
nobama presented an ongoing threat to our country. You never knew what he’d do next. And you knew whatever it was wouldn’t be good for the country.
Thank God for President Trump. He does things that are helpful to the country and contain common sense.
Trump supporters know that that what Trump has done is saved them from an avalanche of fascism.
