President Donald Trump doesn’t seem to be too bothered by the idea that Democratic House Managers spent several days laying out their case against him and after news broke that his approval rating actually jumped significantly during the process, he might just hope that they continue on.
According to Daily Wire, Trump has seen a definite bump in his numbers as the impeachment trial drags out on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
“President Trump’s approval rating has climbed to match the highest of his presidency, boosted by majority approval of his economic stewardship even as Americans remain deeply divided on whether the Senate should remove him from office, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.”
The Washington Post reported that Trump hit 44 percent overall approval ratings from Americans, which is up significantly from his 38 percent number in October.
There were several other bits of interesting data within the latest poll, including another significantly higher number regarding the way the president has handled and managed the American economy.
Trump scored 56 percent approval rating on the way he handles the economy, which is up a staggering 10 points since September of last year and marks the highest scored number since he took office.
“The findings suggest the country’s strong economy and heightened support from men and independents are helping Trump weather an impeachment trial in which Democrats have argued Trump abused his presidential powers and obstructed a congressional investigation of his actions,” The Post article read.
On Saturday, the president’s legal team began to argue their defense against the two articles of impeachment facing Trump as the Senate impeachment trial continues.
