Throughout 2017, into 2018, right up until October 2018, the establishment media coverage of President Trump has remained 90 percent or more negative against him, his supporters and his agenda, according to MRC studies throughout the Trump presidency.
Despite the consistent and hostile coverage by the establishment media, rallies that include the president continue to grow bigger, more energized, as his approval numbers continue to rise, to levels that match two-term presidents, with other polling showing his approval is higher than many other presidents at the same time in their presidency, including Barack Obama.
President Trump's approval rating before the November elections has jumped to a higher level than former President Obama's ahead of the 2010 midterms, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.
The poll found Trump's approval rating at its highest level for that poll yet, at 47 percent. Obama's approval rating was 45 percent around the same time in 2010, according to a similar NBC/Wall Street Journal poll taken in late October 2010.
Yet the media continues to refer to President Trump as an "unpopular" president, and they wonder why the populace has stopped putting any stock in their assertions.
A look at the rally slated for Monday in Houston Texas, where president Trump is speaking in support of Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is up for reelection, is the perfect example of 1) How popular President Trump is; 2) Why the media doesn't even try to hide how much they hate him anymore, and 3) Why the American people distrust the media.
HOUSTON- FIRST EVER TAILGATER FOR A MAGA RALLY
Consider this: In a non-presidential election year, this rally was originally schedule to be held at the NRG arena, which holds about 8,000 people. The response was so overwhelming, the location had to be moved to the 19,000 seat Toyota Center. Yet 100,000 tickets were requested, with people lining up over 24 hours ahead of time.
Rather than disappoint so many, the Trump campaign went to work, with Brad Parscale, Trump's 2020 campaign manager, announcing on October 21, that he flew in early with his team to set up the first ever "tailgater", with food trucks, live music and more!
It is that personal touch, that desire to adjust to demand to keep supporters happy that rally-goes appreciate.
The disconnect is not on the part of Trump supporters, it is on the part of the media, that simply cannot comprehend how they can relentlessly tell their audience how awful President Trump is, with article after article bashing him, declaring everything he does is horrible, yet, the excitement grows, as do the attendees.
Deja vu: They did the same thing throughout the presidential primaries and the general election in 2016, the bashed Trump, the hailed Hillary, they told the populace he didn't have a chance to win (right up until election day), then he won.... no matter what they have done, how much the media opposed him... he prevailed, and that ladies and gentlemen is why the media hates him so much and why his supporters can overlook some character flaws.
Trump supporters want a president that keeps his promises, creates jobs, lowers unemployment, re-works deals that were patently unfair to America, etc.... the establishment media, wants..... well, an establishment "presidential" figure.
The media has overplayed its hand once again ahead of midterms. Weeks ago Democrats were sure they could take control of both the House and the Senate, today they are hoping to limit their loss in the Senate, while others are now warning the House isn't a sure thing for Democrats either, despite historical precedent where a first term President's party almost always loses House seats (Exception was Bush after 9/11).
The bottom line here is when the media screams "unpopular president" yet polling shows President Trump's approval numbers right up there with two-term presidents and higher than Obama's levels at the same point by the same pollsters, and millions of Americans look at the energy, hype and excitement at the MAGA rallies like the one in Houston, where people camped out overnight just to be part of it all..... the media looks like the hacks they are and that energizes Trump supporters even more.
