The only president who had better standing among his base at this point was Bush after 9/11
President Trump must be doing something right, or the #Resistance is doing something very wrong. Or both. No recent president has enjoyed a higher approval rating among his base than Trump since President Bush following the 9/11 terror attacks.
Republican voters are demanding that President Trump run for re-election in 2020, the latest evidence that support among his backers is stronger than it was for nearly every recent president.
According to the latest Economist/YouGov poll, 68 percent of Republicans want Trump to run for re-election.
And Democratic pollster John Zogby said this week that only former President George W. Bush was more popular than Trump among his base going into his first mid-term election, and he had just launched a war against America’s 9/11 attackers.
Discussing U.S. politics with foreign reporters, Zogby said:
His approval ratings within his own party are high. If you look today, 87 percent of Republicans give him a positive approval rating. What’s that mean? At this point in his presidency, Barack Obama had a 79 percent rating among Democrats. The only president at this point in time in the presidency to outscore Donald Trump was George W. Bush at 95 percent, and of course, by this point in time, we had launched the war in Iraq. Ronald Reagan wasn’t this high. Jack Kennedy wasn’t this high. The GOP is the party of Trump.
