More Americans are feeling good about the U.S.A. in this, the era Trump, than they have for a long time, according to a new Gallup poll.
After eight long years under the oppressive Obama, Americans are again feeling good about America. In fact, Americans haven’t rated the U.S. so well since early in the Bush era in 2003.
According to a report at The Hill:
In a Gallup survey, 58 percent of respondents said they believe the U.S. is rated “very” or “somewhat favorably” by the rest of the world, a 3 percent increase from last year.
In fact, in a good sign for Trump’s re-election, it is political independents who have gained a more positive opinion about the country…
Despite the uptick, the views of Democrats and Republicans on the matter have not changed in the last year, but 8 percent more independents believe the world views the U.S. in a favorable light.
Naturally, the psychotic Democrats were the ones who don’t see reality. Only 36 percent of Democrats feel good about the U.S. But, since Democrats hate this country in the first place, that is probably not a surprise.
However, Gallup did feel that many are separating how they feel about the country from what they think of Trump.
Still, the good feelings usually do impact how people vote. After all, when they feel things are bad, they often vote people out of office. While that didn’t happen for Bush or Obama, Congress did flip flop from one party to the other several times during both their presidencies.
So, we’ll have to see how these good feelings affect 2020.
“Gallup surveyed 1,016 American adults between Feb. 1-10. The margin of error for the sample is plus or minus 4 percentage points,” The Hill reported.
