I think pretty much everyone can agree that Trump stumbled in the press conference. But let’s just say that many voters are taking a broader perspective on developments than the official punditry.
(From New York Magazine)
Trump’s high rating, up one percent from June, is thanks largely to support of Republicans, 88 percent of whom told pollsters that they approve of the job he’s doing. Among them, 64 percent strongly approve of Trump, who is experiencing an almost unheard-of level of support from members of his own party, the WSJ reports.
Of the four previous White House occupants, only George W. Bush, in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, had a higher approval rating within his own party at the same point in his presidency.
