President Donald Trump’s approval rating surpassed previous records, reaching 96 percent among members of the Republican Party and 51 percent in likely U.S. voters.
The trend is upward, building on the results obtained even before the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus deteriorated the nation’s stability, which is very significant in view the approaching presidential elections on Nov. 3.
Trump’s approval rating for his tenure at the helm of the country rose to 50 percent on July 31, and continued to climb, according to the latest survey conducted by Rasmussen.
Moreover, the FiveThirtyEight approval rating tracker shows that Trump’s popularity rose nearly two percentage points as of Aug. 20, which is consistent with a decline in the disapproval rating as measured by the same tracker, which takes into account the results of several pollsters.
The nationally recognized Rasmussen Reports firm presents daily results of tracking the opinions of 1,500 citizens collected by telephone over the previous three days.
Trump expressed his thanks to the voters through one of the usual tweets.
“96% approval rating in the Republican Party. 51% approval in the Rasmussen poll. Thank you!” he wrote in his account.
96% Approval Rating in the Republican Party. 51% Approval Rating overall in the Rasmussen Poll. Thank you!

It should be noted that the Democratic National Convention took place from Aug. 17 to Aug. 20, during which time Rasmussen conducted the poll that revealed the increase.
The country’s strong economic revival is one of the aspects in favor of the Trump administration.
The United States has faced in recent months the catastrophic impact of the CCP Virus and the violent riots generated since the death of African American George Floyd on May 25.
The challenges in the international arena have also been unusual, dominated by the aggressive attitude of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in various sectors and countries, which it has come to regard as a serious threat.
During Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to the Czech Republic, he assessed that countering the danger posed by the CCP is more difficult now than when it confronted the former Soviet Union after World War II.
“An even greater threat today is posed by the Chinese Communist Party with its campaigns of coercion and control,” Pompeo told the Czech Senate as released by the State Department Aug. 12.
“That’s because the CCP is already embedded in our economies, in our politics, and in our societies in ways that the Soviet Union never did,” he added.
