President Trump’s ratings tend to go up when he’s under fire. And he’s playing this entire situation to undermine the Biden campaign and drag the Democrats through the rapids of their own making as allegations go back and forth about criminal misconduct.
When firestorms happen, Trump’s ratings tend to rise because he’s seen as fighting. So this is no surprise.
President Trump’s approval ticked up to 49 percent — its highest mark this year, according to a new Hill-HarrisX survey released on Wednesday.
The figure marks a 2-point increase from a Sept. 11-12 poll, but a 2-point decrease from its previous peak of 51 percent last August.
Trump’s disapproval rating, meanwhile, dropped to 51 percent, which marks his lowest level so far this year.
The nationwide survey was conducted on Sept. 28 and 29, less than a week after House Democrats launched a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump over concerns raised in a whistleblower’s complaint about the president’s communications with Ukraine.
Not the poll the media is touting, but the one it ought to be.,
