As President Trump remains in Walter Reed Medical Center, stricken with coronavirus, new numbers have rolled in that can offer his campaign a bit of good news in the midst of a troubling situation.
Fox News is reporting that a new Gallup poll saw Trump’s approval rating rise significantly in the month of September.
Fox notes that “Gallup released its results on Thursday, claiming that Trump saw his highest approval rating (46%) since May with approvals on his handling of certain issues, other than the economy, below 50%.”
These numbers are almost identical to President Obama’s in 2012, which were 47% and 50% around the same time in the campaign.
Perhaps even more significantly, Gallup reported that 56% of Americans believe the president will win in November. Only 40% said the same for Biden.
Clearly Americans haven’t forgotten the lessons of 2016, even if the media has.
