President Trump hits record approval in Fox News poll, like clockwork the left goes bananas

President Donald Trump has scored a record-high approval rating with Fox News, earning 49 percent of registered voters’ approval and 49 percent of registered voters’ disapproval, thus leaving him with an unprecedented tie.

While ties have appeared in other recent polls by Monmouth, The Hill/HarrisX, Grinnell/Selzer, etc., the poll released by FNC on Thursday reportedly marks the first tie ever recorded by the network.

Similarly, the poll denotes “only the third time in Fox News polling that fewer than half rate him negatively,” according to the network.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the president’s average overall approval rating recently reached a record high of 47.4 percent approval and 49.3 percent disapproval, as recorded by RealClearPolitics.

Within the past week, however, his average approval rating has begun to return to normal levels, though FNC’s latest findings may perhaps be a sign that another upswing awaits.

The same trend has been seen with the president’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, with a stunning 50.6 percent of Americans having approved of his handling as of late March. By the end of the second week of April, the average had dropped to 46.8 percent, though FNC’s findings were poised to push the number higher again.

“When specifically looking at the pandemic, 51 percent of voters backed Trump,” the network reported. “Infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci ranked at 80 percent approval, followed by Deborah Birx at 62 percent and Vice President Pence at 52 percent.”

In response to the “good news,” the left immediately threw another tantrum, with the left’s many overgrown toddlers either positing wild conspiracy theories, accusing roughly half of all Americans of being “completely stupid” or purposefully misinterpreting the poll’s results.

Look (*Language warning):

FNC’s results come amid a widespread effort by the mainstream propaganda press to paint the president’s every coronavirus-related action in a negative light.

His optimism toward the potential coronavirus cure hydroxychloroquine? BAD!

His hope of reopening the economy sooner than later? BAD!

His willingness to call out China’s lies? BAD!

His willingness to ban travel from China and Europe? BAD!

His willingness to call out the media for cheering America’s decline? BAD!

His willingness to call out governors who’re screwing over their constituents? BAD!

As noted by the New York Post’s editorial board in a recent write-up, “much of the media can’t let go of their pre-crisis agenda — including their hatred of the prez, which persists unabated (blatantly on display in press briefings) even amid this national emergency.”

Except this time, their partisan games affect more than just the president. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic and shutdowns/lockdowns are a life-and-death matter for millions of Americans who’ve been left without a source of income.

But instead of addressing the crisis in a fair and impartial manner by weighing the pros and cons of these shutdowns — and, more importantly, asking tough questions about the sketchy, inflated data being used to justify them — the media have adopted the narrative that the country must remain shut down in perpetuity.

And those states that haven’t locked down their own citizens yet? They must suffer.

In fact, one journalist even suggested that grocery stores be shuttered as well …

To hear the media tell it, there’s only one “right” way through this crisis — endless lockdowns.

It’s perhaps because of the president’s willingness to challenge the fourth estate’s dogmatic views that he’s polling so well.

After all, leadership isn’t defined by one’s ability to be a follower but rather by one’s ability to take the right course of action no matter the pressure to do otherwise.
