Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, March 23, 2020

A majority of Americans now approve of President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new survey, as the administration has issued stricter federal guidelines in recent days and the president has adopted a more public-facing role in combating the disease.

An ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday reports that 55 percent of respondents approve of Trump's management of the public health crisis, while 43 percent disapprove. The latest figures represent a boost in the president's rating from the previous iteration of the survey, published one week ago, which showed only 43 percent approval for Trump and 54 percent disapproval.

I know why I loathe Trump, JEFF, and can provide a rationale for that in detail.

Why you love Trump is what remains the mystery.

Once he stopped lying and giving out misinformation from the White House podium, why shouldn't more people like what he is doing? Why is that a surprise to you?

There is still a lot more he can/should do, though. As indicated by 55% approval number.

Trump's a monster, JEFF.

You appear one of the last to know it.

@#4 ... Based upon the media coverage ...

I've seen a pretty big change in media coverage since Pres Trump significantly reduced his lying about the crisis. That's another reason why the poll results were not surprising to me.

Most people want Trump to stop lying and listen to smart people.

Too bad it took so long.

There is a rally-round-the-president effect during a crisis. The public needs Trump to do a good job so desperately that some people see what they want to see.

Won't last long if things keep going sideways.

Just a thought, but given Americans generally rally around the president in times of crisis-look at Dubya's approval numbers after 9/11, these numbers seem VERY low.
