Vice President Mike Pence started his address on Thursday afternoon to the attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Md. by talking about the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus.
“President Donald Trump has no higher priority than the health, safety and well-being of the American people,” Pence said, referring to President Trump’s “unprecedented action” to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Pence said that all patients who have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the U.S. have been treated and are doing well, but they will maintain on guard with the Vice President at the helm of the effort in the weeks to come.
“I promise you. We will continue to bring the full resources of the federal government to bear to protect the American people,” he said.
Pence said that the administration is looking to work in bipartisan fashion to stop the spread of coronavirus before launching into his promotion of the Trump/Pence ticket heading into this November’s election.
A group of hecklers were ushered out of the event yelling at Pence, as the crowd chanted “USA! USA! USA!” to drown out their jeers. One of the hecklers appeared to be dressed in a President Trump costume.
Pence compared Trump to former President Ronald Reagan, who addressed CPAC many times before his death in 2004.
“How great is it to have a President of the United States who embraces his role as leader of the free world?” Pence asked the attentive audience, adding that the world knows under Trump that “America stands with Israel.”
He also talked up the administration giving more healthcare options for veterans, increasing border security, supporting law enforcement and ICE against the far left, remaking the federal judiciary, and most importantly standing for the unborn.
“President Trump is the most pro-life president in American history,” Pence said to a massive ovation from the crowd.
Pence then went into promoting President Trump’s economic record, including tax cuts, regulatory reform, an energy policy overhaul, and revamped trade deals. After that, he took shots at the socialists running to oppose President Trump in November, calling their recent CBS News debate a “demolition derby.”
“The truth is today’s Democratic Party has been taken over by radical leftists who want higher taxes, open borders and late-term abortions,” Pence said, adding that the party of Harry Truman and JFK is gone.
“Let’s be clear. It isn’t just about Bernie. Despite what the media loves to tell you, there are no moderates in this Democratic field. Everyone of the other Democrats embraces Bernie’s socialist agenda,” he contended.
Pence made the case it is not enough for President Trump to be re-elected, but a cultural shift must be enacted in order to keep capitalism as the economic system in America for the decades to come.
“It won’t be enough to win the next election. We have to win the next generation,” he said.
He closed his address with an impassioned defense of freedom, using Venezuela as an example of what the U.S. must never become. He expressed his belief that the current generation is one that is embracing freedom more and more.
“Ladies and gentlemen of CPAC 2020, President Donald Trump is the real deal. He is a man who says what he means and means what he says,” Pence said.
“I want to challenge you. I want to challenge all of you… Keep bringing your enthusiasm. Keep bringing this support,” he urged.

President Trump’s Approval Rating Soars as the Public Increasingly Supports His Coronavirus Response
The public supports Trump’s crisis response.
A Gallup poll has shown that President Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 49 percent as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
His approval rating has jumped five points in the past month. This matches his all-time high, which was previously achieved in late January and early February. Ninety-two percent of Republicans support the President, while 43 percent of independents and 13 percent of Democrats approve of Trump.
Americans also approve of the way President Trump has handled the coronavirus pandemic. Sixty percent of Americans support Trump’s disaster response while 38 percent of Americans disapprove. Ninety-four percent of Republicans support his response, while 60 percent of independents and 27 percent of Democrats support how Trump has handled coronavirus.
“The Trump administration has received some criticism for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic — including that the president downplayed the threat, at least up until his nationally televised address on March 11,” Gallup noted in their report.
“On March 16, Trump acknowledged the seriousness of the situation by urging people to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and to have workers and students stay home if possible. The administration has had daily press conferences since then to update the nation on what the federal government is doing to address the situation,” they added.
It is not uncommon for an incumbent president to gain in popularity during a crisis, as every commander-in-chief in office during a serious threat has gained support from the public as a result.
“Historically, presidential job approval has increased when the nation is under threat. Every president from Franklin Roosevelt through George W. Bush saw their approval rating surge at least 10 points after a significant national event of this kind. Bush’s 35-point increase after 9/11 is the most notable rally effect on record,” Gallup noted.
Although he is peaking right now, President Trump has consistently shown strength in various polls for many months as the public realizes the fake news is lying about his administration:
New polling from Quinnipiac released Thursday shows President Donald Trump handily defeating every major Democratic presidential candidate in hypothetical general election matchups…
Well-known Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are the most competitive candidates against Trump in the Wisconsin general election, and even they lose by a considerable seven points to the incumbent Republican president.
Even Pete Buttigieg, an Indiana mayor who claims to have a credible path to victory in midwestern states the President grabbed from the Democratic Party in 2016, appears nowhere near seriously competing in the state.
The polling suggests Democrats will have a serious uphill battle in order to contend for the electoral votes of midwestern states such as Wisconsin, in 2020 or other future Presidential elections.
President Trump’s polling in statewide and national surveys has consistently improved as the Democratic Primary erupts in contention, suggesting that the divisions within the Democratic Party may bode well for his re-election.
The state was formerly assumed to be a safe blue state, before Trump won its electoral votes in a shocking upset in 2016. Pennsylvania and Michigan also went Republican for the first time in decades in Trump’s victory, and will prove essential to the election in 2020. Polling of the latter two states shows closer general election contests than in Wisconsin.
President Trump is showing his leadership bona fides during the crisis, and the public is thrilled with the way he is handling the coronavirus pandemic.
