As is a prerequisite for the week in between Christmas and New Year’s Day, the media will begin to smash together what they believe are the year’s biggest stories.
For 2017, things should be fairly easy. First and foremost on the minds of everyone with running water and access to the world at large is President Donald Trump: An unconventional powerhouse of populism that has smashed the political stereotypes that led our nation down a dark and dismal path of corruption over the last 8 years. Trump eclipses even the second biggest story of the year by a mile, (the American sexual harassment revolution), thanks to his unending crusade to make America great again…something that every one of our financial metrics has determined that he is achieving.
As we peer back into the last 12 months for our predictable summarization of the year at large, there may be no better indicator of Trump’s successes than the approval rating bestowed upon him by the American people, especially during this time of reflection.
Good news for the President: These reminiscing U.S. citizens have bestowed upon the Commander in Chief a nice little pop for the end of this bizarre year.
“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove.
“The latest figures include 29% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 44% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15.
“While it’s been a roller coaster year for America when it comes to voters’ outlook on the future of this country, more voters now think America’s best days are in the future rather than in the past.
Trump’s populism also had an effect on how Americans respond to the Christmas holiday as well, with a whopping 59% of the U.S. declaring that Christmas is the “most important” holiday of the year, with religious services being attended by over half of the nation to celebrate the birth of Christ.
Trump could certainly take a bit of credit here as well, with his unabashed opinions on Christmas and its importance on full display as of late.
