Rock solid Conservatives love Trump: POTUS receives whopping 93 percent approval rating at CPAC

Despite the continuous stream of controversy, President Trump’s support among his base remains rock solid.

On Saturday, a straw poll at the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference gave the president 93 percent approval, a figure he touted with glee.


“50% say President Trump should Tweet MORE or SAME (funny!). 79% say Republicans in Congress should do a better job of working with President Trump (starting to happen).”

The poll surveyed attendees at the annual gathering of conservatives, who totaled approximately 1,155 this year, the Washington Times reports.

The poll also found that 75 percent support the president’s current immigration proposal, which includes building a border wall, eliminating the visa lottery, and ending chain migration in exchange for offering illegal alien “Dreamers” legal status and a path to citizenship.

According to the poll, 79 percent of attendees want Congress to more effectively implement the Trump agenda–a 12-point increase from last year.

A close 35 percent would like to see President Trump tweet more, while 13 percent said he should continue his Twitter activity at current levels. About 11 percent didn’t care one way or the other.

During his CPAC speech on Friday, the president unabashedly tapped into the audience’s sense of patriotism, proclaiming:

“We salute our great American flag, we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of Allegiance, and we all proudly stand for the National Anthem.”
