The Democratic National Convention provided a bump… for President Trump.
Biden appeared to fall flat after announcing his running mate and hold his convention.
Meanwhile, Trump and the GOP have kicked off their convention—with rave reviews from supporters.
But how has the Republican National Convention affected Trump’s approval?
This new report suggests thing are looking good:
Buoyed by blacks and independent voters, as well as urban dwellers shocked by the Black Lives Matter protest violence raging in some cities, President Trump’s approval rating has hit a new high, according to a survey heavy with minority voters.
The latest Zogby Analytics poll just shared with Secrets had Trump’s approval at 52%. “The president has recorded his best job approval rating on record,” said pollster Jonathan Zogby.
Why It’s Important:
A new Zogby poll reveals Donald Trump’s approval among voters is at 52%. That is his highest rating on record for this group.
What’s particularly worth noting is that, according to this poll, his approval among black and Hispanic voters is particularly high.
It has reached its highest among blacks at 36%. Hispanics’ approval at 37%.
These numbers are historically high for a Republican candidate, who are often smeared by the liberal media as being racist or bigoted.
It appears Trump’s rising approval is contributed at least in part by the ongoing riots in major cities.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa are instigated destructive riots nationwide. Democrat leaders turn a blind eye as looters and anarchists seek to tear down countless livelihoods and homes.
President Trump, on the other hand, has condemned the riots from the start. He has called on local leaders to restore law and order.
In response, Democrats have called Trump a dictator and let the riots spread.
It should come as no surprise that Americans are growing increasingly angry at Democrats, even liberal voters who once supported them.
The RNC made law and order a particularly important topic. Numerous speakers mentioned the riots, condemning the destruction, and promising that Trump will restore peace.
It seems this message is resonating with more and more voters, even minority voters.
Add to that Joe Biden’s total lack of bump after his own convention, Democrats should be getting pretty scared right now.
- A new Zogby poll has Trump’s approval at 52%
- Black and Hispanic voters are giving Trump historically high approval
