I’m not making this up: Republicans approve of the job Donald Trump is doing at levels that EXCEED Ronald Reagan and both Bushes at this point in their presidencies.
You don’t believe me?
…84% of Republicans and Republican leaners approve of the way he is handling his job as president, which is in line with the support past presidents received from their own parties. For more, see detailed demographic tables on Trump job approval.
These data provide Trump a powerful incentive to push forward with his agenda. It also compels Congressional Republicans — no matter their personal feelings towards of him — to mute their criticisms.
So, if you were bothered by Trump’s behavior during his Thursday press conference and believe that conduct warrants his removal as president, well, you’d better not hold your breath.
And if you want politicians to do a deeper dive into Trump’s longstanding relations with Russia, you shouldn’t be disappointed if those politicians throw up all sorts of delay tactics.
