For whatever it’s worth…
…the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll has just been published. It shows that, after a month of daily lambasting by our media – the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post being front and center among them -President Trump has shown a significant upward move in how he is viewed by the public.
Trump, who trailed Biden in this poll by 56% to 39% as recently as last October, and trailed by 52% – 44% just last month, now is behind by just 49% to 47%.
And he is doing it during a time when the major networks and newspapers have done their level best to demonize President Trump and blame him for the COVID-19 crisis.
If these data are accurate – a big, BIG “if” as I always point out – it means that, despite media’s best efforts, a lot of people in the county are happy with how President Trump is handling this, or that Joe Biden has been such a disastrous candidate over the past month that he is losing support over it, or both.
Personally, I think it’s a combination of the two.
But will it continue? Will the COVID-19 recession/depression, which seems so inevitable, change people’s minds? We’ll have to wait and see. But it is where we are now.
More on this as new polling is released.
