Trump approval rating near 50%. Can anyone explain that to me?

Trump is currently enjoying record approval rating. Seems like many peple are happy with his response to this pandemic. WTF? I think he's done a horrible job. I just don't get it.

Decades of cutting education funding by republicans is paying off bigly.

It's a double win for them, make people dumb and stick it to the unions who they fucking loathe.

Edit: and it's hilarious that 50% of the country thinking he's a shithead is record approval for this guy.

Don't worry, there is absolutely no path to reelection at this point....

I wouldn’t be so sure. Above someone mentioned wartime president syndrome. That’s a part of it. Any leadership in a storm...

Remember 50% ish got him elected. They haven’t gone anywhere.

I suspect that when more of the electorate has a personal connection to someone killed by Covid-19 the numbers will change. I would be happy to be wrong about the former, although I think it's unlikely that I am.

Democrat leadership is wishing and hoping it comes true, they see it as a "tremendous opportunity"

Remember 9/11 and POTUS Bush? I believe his approval rating when 9/11 took place was in the high 80s.That quickly came down though.

I'm sure the same will happen to Trump. Maybe.

That's not what your link says, but I know you're just trolling. I'm still not sure if you're actually stateside or not, but I suppose either way it's reasonably likely you'll personally know someone killed by Covid-19 as well. Hell, could be you. I guess we'll see.

It's roughly ~45% average now. I'm not sure it's all coronavirus. Incumbents sometimes gain in approval as the election nears. We'll see. I don't think this short-term boost if by coronavirus response will hold as the economy dampens and more people get sick/die.

According to 538 his approval rating has rocketed from 43.5% at the beginning of the month to a mammoth 44.6%.

Damn!! With a jump that high I think the only democratic candidate that can beat him is one whose 2020 results are worse than their 2016 results!

You're being purposely dishonest like your savior!

When are trolls going to be reigned in or is it now acceptable?

It’s the new normal. When anandtech was sold I’m pretty sure the new owners only cared about “hits”, allowing trolls to continue posting helps them. It’s why I now have no problem blocking 100% of the ads on this site.

Let me guess, you watch the China/Clinton News Network.

I said this when Incorruptible was here. Trolls keep P&N traffic up.
