In fact, more Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the virus than the media’s reporting on it. No wonder some “journalists” are calling on networks to stop broadcasting Trump’s pressers with his coronavirus task force.
American politics has temporarily been reduced to a single issue, and Trump’s growing approval on that issue is translating to his overall approval ahead of the November election.
According to Gallup: Forty-nine percent of U.S. adults, up from 44% earlier this month, approve of the job Trump is doing as president. Trump also had 49% job approval ratings — the best of his presidency — in late January and early February around the time of the Senate impeachment trial that resulted in his acquittal.
