All the negative coverage of President Trump by the liberal media has not stopped him from jumping up to a 45 percent approval rating in a new poll.

And while his critics may pan the number as not so significant, Trump actually has a better rating than Presidents Obama and Reagan at the same point in their presidencies according to a Fox News poll.

Trump is enjoying a 45 percent approval rating in the new Fox News poll, and a 44 percent rating in the Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, according to Fox News, matching those of Obama and Reagan in June of 2010 and 1982, respectively.

According to Rasmussen, Trump’s approval number is at 47 percent. Obama’s approval number was 46 percent on the Rasmussen poll on June 9, 2010.

Fox News analyst and host of “MediaBuzz,” Howard Kurtz said this is “hardly the statistic you’d expect from someone on the verge of political oblivion” according to the mainstream media.

“There is a yawning gap between his actual support and the media’s portrayal of an embattled and unpopular president,” Kurtz said.

Kurtz believes the booming economy has a lot to do with the public approval of Trump, with more than half of those polled in the Fox survey approve of the president’s handling of the economy, leading to lower unemployment and increased jobs.

“But it goes deeper than that,” Kurtz explained.  “Much of the public simply isn’t breathlessly following all the scandal stuff and controversies and flap-of-the-day flareups the way the press corps is. Many voters shrug off his provocations and exaggerations because they think he is delivering for them on kitchen-table issues and like his economic warfare against China.”

Former Fox host Bill O’Reilly believes the president’s approval rating would be even higher if not for the constant negativity from the press.

It seems the numbers don’t lie and many on Twitter appeared no so surprised that their president is polling well.
