If you were to travel back in time, 10 years or 10 months, and show the people then even a small snippet of today’s mainstream media malarky, you would have a hard time convincing them that our nation isn’t on the brink of utter catastrophe.
We are in the midst of an impeachment “inquiry” so biased and fervent that it is frankly embarrassing to a great many Americans. The left and right are so divided, and so frighteningly angry, that few conclusions outside of Civil War or a dissolution of the entire experiment could bring this issue to a head.
But that isn’t the whole story, nor is it even half the story. Instead, the nation is actually thriving. Our economy seems to be at a rolling boil in the late months of 2019, and that is something that Americans of all stripes can agree on.
Support for Donald Trump’s economic policies rose to the highest level of his presidency in November, according to the latest Gallup opinion poll.
Fifty-seven percent of Americans approved of President Trump’s handling of the economy, up from 53 percent in August and 50 percent in May. Approval is dramatically improved from the early days of his presidency, when just 48 percent said they approved.
The share of Americans who say they disapprove of Trump’s economic policies fell to just 42 percent, the lowest level on record. This was as high as 48 percent when Trump took office, nearly tied with his 47 percent approval rating. So the latest results show Americans have become more united in support of Trump’s economic policies.
President Trump’s economic prowess has been on full display during his first term, with joblessness declining in unprecedented ways and a number of records being reached on Wall Street.
While we may have found ourselves divided politically, on the economy, the truth is undeniable.
