The media narrative that President Donald Trump is unpopular, unloved, and un-electable crumbled a little bit more this week, as a new poll showed the president nearly tied with two of the most popular U.S. leaders of modern times.
Trump’s approval rating hit a 100-day high this month. And the sweetest part is the poll was commissioned by the foremost purveyor of fake news: CNN.
A total of 42 percent of Americans support Trump and the job he’s doing in the Oval Office.
That’s his highest rating in that poll since last April 25, and a 7 percent increase in just one month – a major swing in such a short time.
CNN even had to write a sentence that must have given everyone at the network heartburn: “Trump only trails Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama by a narrow 4 points at this point in their first terms.”
That’s right – Trump is nearly as popular as former President Barack Obama and former President Ronald Reagan, but you’d never know it from the media coverage.
Worse yet for the left, two more polls confirmed CNN’s findings.

Trump’s support also stood at 42 percent in an Associated Press poll – but the AP survey shows even more Americans rallying behind Trump.
A third poll from Quinnipiac University on March 21 also found Trump’s approval rating jumped two points in two weeks.
No one should be surprised by the results. The president has been on a roll – and so has the country.

In late February, unemployment claims fell to their lowest level since December 1969 – 48 years ago.
But the polls left the Washington Establishment confused, angry, and afraid.
Trump’s popularity so rocked The Washington Post that it had to reassure its Beltway readership by highlighting the most negative part of the survey’s results.
It reported the poll like this: “People who say they’re most eager to vote strongly disapprove of Trump in a new poll.”

They decided to spin the poll as bad news.
The Washington Post reporter Philip Bump wrote, “Among those who say they’re very enthusiastic about voting in November, he’s at only 38 percent support, with 60 percent saying they disapprove. Among those less enthusiastic about voting, as many people view Trump with approval as with disapproval.”
The Capitol newspaper The Hill reported the poll’s findings, but threw in as much negative news as it could: “President Trump’s approval rating jumped to its highest point in roughly 11 months but remains underwater.”
The next day, they ran a story claiming: “Poll: Trump’s job performance rating drops.” But The HIll never mentioned that the poll in question was conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP), a Democratic firm known for skewing its results.
With the economy roaring, the president getting tough with Russia, and the world still at peace, Trump should be at least as popular as Obama.
By this time in Obama’s presidency, unemployment was 9.7 percent. Obama had gone on an international apology tour, agreed to close down the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, and signed Obamacare into law.
Trump’s popularity is more impressive, considering how the media has tried to destroy his presidency. Reporters have obsessively covered anti-Trump stories, from the Russian collusion scandal based on a false dossier, to how many Diet Cokes he drinks in a day.
A whopping 91 percent of media stories about President Trump has been negative, according to the Media Research Center.

That study, which covered the Big Three networks’ coverage in January and February, came out before this month’s wall-to-wall coverage of allegations that Trump had an extramarital fling with pornstar Stormy Daniels.
The more the media hates on Trump, the more he wins.
