If you only got your news from ABC, NBC, or CNN, you’d think that President Trump’s border policies were hurting the country and no Americans actually supported his views on immigration. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
It turns out the negative coverage might have helped boost the President’s approval numbers.
“…according to the Real Clear Politics poll of polls, on June 8, Trump’s approval rating rounded out to an average of 42 percent, while his disapproval rating averaged 54 percent — a 12 point gap.
As of Monday July 2, after two weeks of being pounded by the entire media over border enforcement, Trump’s approval rating has climbed to 44 percent, and his disapproval rating has dropped to 51 percent — a seven point gap.”
Most Americans are smart enough to see through the anti-Trump bias in American media. Experts suggest that many voters can see that much of the published outrage at the border has been drummed up by the same people who actively hate the President.
Turns out, the outrage from the media may be doing the opposite of what they want and may actually be helping the President’s approval numbers.
