A Gallup poll released on Tuesday found that president Donald Trump had received the highest economic approval rating of any president in the last 20 years. A whopping 63% of the public approves of Trump’s handling of the economy.
It’s the highest economic approval figure since the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy when George W. Bush was president. Bush’s economic approval peaked at 72% in October 2001.
By comparison, President Obama saw support for his stewardship of the economy top out at 59% in February 2009, the first month of his presidency and the height of the Great Recession, according to Gallup.
Last week, a Washington Post-ABC News poll found 56% of respondents supported Trump’s management of the economy, which is undergoing its longest expansion on record and continues adding jobs at a healthy pace. –Yahoo News
Much to the dismay of the mainstream media, the same Gallup poll also found that Trump’s job approval rating stood at 49%, and just over half of Americans now view the Republican Party favorably. These strong back-to-back poll results came at a pivotal moment for President Trump. With the Republican-led Senate likely to acquit him in his impeachment trial over an alleged attempt to investigate Hunter Biden’s corruption in Ukraine, Trump is seeking to place the economy front and center in his re-election campaign.
If Trump wants to win reelection, and win it in a landslide, he’d do well to dramatically cut taxes for the middle class. And by “dramatic” we mean severe and deep cuts that people will notice. The problem with his last tax cut bill was that not enough of those who make less than $1 million saw a difference because it could have been negligible. Trump needs to make the next tax cut noticeable to everyone and in a meaningful and impactful way so that even socialists begin to understand the power of being “allowed” to keep more of the money they worked so hard to earn.
That’s just our two cents…
In “Parasites on Parade,” Larken Rose (author of “The Most Dangerous Superstition” and “The Iron Web”) uses his own direct experiences with bureaucratic and judicial stupidity, intrusion and corruption to illustrate why, everywhere and at all times, in every situation and at every level, government sucks! This snarky, flippant look at the mentality and tactics of various state busybodies also provides an important lesson regarding the true nature of political “authority,” and the problems and abuses it naturally creates.
