America has hit an important marker and the Trump administration has reached quite a feat according to the latest Gallup polls.
A new study found that Americans haven’t been this satisfied with the direction the country is going in for over 12 years.
The satisfaction rate reached 38%, its highest since 2005 and the trend is climbing. Gallup credited the positive outlook to the economic boom the country is experiencing under the Trump administration, shrinking unemployment numbers and Trump’s diplomatic efforts with North Korea.
Gallup reported that the new numbers come from Republicans and Independents, while Democrats remain stubbornly disgruntled:
The satisfaction rate, which Gallup has measured at least monthly since 2001, has now topped 35% three times this year — a level reached only three times in the previous 12 years (once each in 2006, 2009 and 2016).
U.S. satisfaction has averaged 38% in May and June after averaging 29% in March and April. The nine-percentage-point bump between the two periods is entirely owing to increased satisfaction among Republicans and independents, pushing Republicans’ satisfaction to 68% and independents’ to 36%.
Meanwhile, Democrats’ satisfaction is unchanged at 13%.
The positive numbers is an incredible feat considering the onslaught of negative media coverage:

In addition to overall satisfaction, President Trump’s job approval continues to rise:
Gallup: Donald Trump's weekly job approval jumps to match the highest level of his presidency at 45-50 (was 42-54 last week).
The only time his approval has been this high on Gallup was the first week of his presidency, when it was 45-47. pic.twitter.com/7oRIiH93bh

The numbers have many leftists terrified:
I really am shocked that this child separation issue at the boarder does not have his approvals lower. Not sure that reflects very positively on us…

Last week Democrats and the liberal media launched an all out assault on the Trump administration for following the law on U.S. border policy. Despite the overwhelming negative coverage, the Trump administration seems to be holding steady — not good news for Dems:

This is probably his ceiling, but could win re-election with those numbers.

It’s not gonna happen for the Democrats, is it?

At this rate, it’s unlikely.
