A new poll put out by the Washington Post-ABC News is delivering some rather bad news for Democratic presidential candidates concerning Trump’s job approval, which has now reached, “the highest point of his presidency.”
Further making their faces stretch in frownie faces is a tidbit concerning where all of the candidates — minus former Vice President Joe Biden — stand in head-to-head matchups against Trump. They’re within the margin of error.

The apparent reason for Trump’s improving 2020 prospects, The Washington Post suggests, comes down to the most essential of electoral issues: “a strong economy and perceptions that he has dealt with it effectively.” With an all-time high 47% approval among registered voters, the Post admits, “Trump has a narrow but real path to reelection.”
“Trump’s approval rating among voting-age Americans stands at 44 percent, edging up from 39 percent in April, with 53 percent saying they disapprove of him,” the Post reports. “Among registered voters, 47 percent say they approve of Trump while 50 percent disapprove. In April, 42 percent of registered voters said they approved while 54 percent said they disapproved.”
Though Trump continues to poll badly on most issues, and a majority say he’s “unpresidential,” he’s increasingly getting credit for the improving economy — and that might be enough to see him re-elected, the Post posits. Even a fifth of those who fault him for acting unpresidential still approve of his handling of the job.
While Trump is in the red on taxes (42%), foreign policy (40%), immigration (40%), and health care (38%), he polls at 51% approval on the economy — and that’s among U.S. adults; among registered voters, Trump scored higher on overall approval. The Post found that 42% of adults say they disapprove of Trump’s handling of the economy, which is a 4% improvement for him since October.
As of this poll, Biden has a ten point lead over the president, but we all know that poll numbers do not always indicate reliably what will happen when folks go out to vote. The 2016 election is proof of that.
Right now, this all looks like good news for conservatives who are hoping to see President Trump pull off a victory next year and continue implementing his vision for America with four more years in the White House.
That would truly make liberal heads explode.
