Â Â More jobs? More optimism? Â The prospect of more jobs — is Â that causing more people to think that the USA is moving in the right direction?
Under Obama – for quite an extended period of time – roughly Â 70+ percent of Â prospective voters Â thought that the USA was going in the wrong direction.Â Those figures have changed recently, i.e., Â how people in general Â feel about the direction of the country.
More people are more optimistic.
Â One month into Trump’s administration and 42 percent think that USA is going in the right direction and 58 percent think Â it’s still going in Â the wrong direction. Â That’s an important shift.
Nearly a majority of voters, 49 percent, approve of the job Donald Trump is doing as president, according to a Morning Consult poll.
“Thirty percent of registered voters strongly support President Trump, while 19 percent somewhat approve. Another thirty percent strongly disapprove, while 11 percent somewhat disapprove. Ten percent werenâ€™t sure or had no opinion.”
While 42 percent said the country was on the right track, another 58 percent said it was on the wrong track.
Trumpâ€™s approval rating has increased quickly: Four days after assuming office, Gallup found Trump had an approval rating of 45 percent, the lowest since the outfit began polling.
The Morning Consult questioned 1,991 registered voters from Jan. 26 to Jan. 28 with a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points.
