Gallup has released the following poll which compares America at the end of the Obama-Biden second term to the Trump-Pence presidency to date.
Under Trump-Pence, the economy is better (+22 points), the country is more secure against terrorism (+18), the military is stronger (+15), the streets are safer (+9 points).
Race relations advanced 14 points, from 22% at the end of the Obama administration to 36% this month. Blacks and other minorities are recorded 9 points better off under Trump than Obama.
Decreased satisfaction vs Obama for the Trump team was as follows:
All in all, the net satisfaction of the 27 categories saw the highest number since 2005.
As all politicians know, “it’s the economy, stupid!”
The survey was conducted across 1,014 people. How representative of 330 million? What needs to be pointed out is that the survey is consistent in the number polled over the years. The numbers are so strong that some might question whether there was a large Republican bias.
If the poll is remotely accurate, the Democrats must question how they tackle the mood over the coming 10 months given the impeachment saga and a field of disjointed candidates.
