President Trump’s Approval Rating is Highest Ever as Public Appreciates His Coronavirus Leadership
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:
Donald Trump just doesn't understand: We have an economic crisis because we have a public health crisis — and we have a public health crisis because he failed to act. pic.twitter.com/hRrueGgx2C

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.
