President Trump’s Approval Rating is Highest Ever as Public Appreciates His Coronavirus Leadership

Trump is gaining in popularity amidst the crisis.

President Donald Trump’s approval ratings have soared to the highest point they have ever reached over the first two weeks of May, according to a recent Gallup poll.

The Gallup poll has Trump’s approval rating at 49 percent, which is higher than his previous two predecessors at the same time of their respective presidencies. This ties the highest approval numbers that Trump has had throughout his presidency and shows that Democrat attempts to blame him for the pandemic are not succeeding.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is expected to take on President Trump in November’s election, has released a video essentially blaming Trump for the outbreak:

Biden also released a video on his Twitter account blaming President Trump for the economic damage that has occurred because of the coronavirus pandemic and chiding him for trying to calm the panic-stricken American public throughout the crisis:

Last week, Big League Politics reported on polling data showing Trump that was leading Biden in a poll taken within 15 key battleground states:

New polling of voters in fifteen different battleground states shows President Donald Trump leading Democrat Joe Biden in the critical states, but trailing nationally.

The polling, conducted by research company SSRS for CNN, revealed that Trump is leading among a survey sample of 583 voters located in the critical states, while trailing nationally to Biden. Trump leads among battleground state voters by a margin of 52 to 45%, whereas Biden leads nationally by a margin of 51 to 46%.

The battleground states where voters were polled were Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The varying polling results in battleground and national settings suggest the 2020 election could possibly be determined by the electoral college, in a situation where the candidate that wins the popular vote does not win the election. Democrats have become harsh critics of the electoral college system in recent years, generally neglecting to recognize that a popular vote election system in which conservative voters in Democrat-dominated states have much greater incentive to vote for President would result in different electoral outcomes.

The battleground polling suggests that Tara Reade’s allegation of sexual assault against Joe Biden has damaged his standing in national polls, with Biden’s solid lead declining from nearly a double-digit margin in recent weeks.

Trump also led Biden with independents, by a margin of 50 to 46%.

Biden’s fear-mongering tactics do not seem to be working in the eyes of voters, as Trump’s popularity continues to spike. His leadership ability is resonating with the American public and that does not bode well for the Democrats.

Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement

Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”

Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.

“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.

“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”

Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.

“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”

Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”

Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.

“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”

He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.

“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.

Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.

“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”

Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
