President Trump's Approval at 45%, Job Market Surging

According to a poll conducted by POLITICO/Morning Consult, President Donald J. Trump's approval rating is at 45%, its highest since September. This represents a 2% increase from last week's POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

Washington Examiner described the poll methodology in an article, writing, "The online survey was conducted with 1,997 registered voters nationwide and had a 2 percentage point margin of error."

Along with the poll, the jobs report published today is a testament to President Trump. It shows that 228,000 jobs were added in November, 28,000 more than predicted, and that the unemployment rate (4.1%) is still at its lowest level since 2000. Additionally, average wages increased by 2.5% over the past year.

The American job market is the strongest it’s been in a decade, and arguably the strongest since 2000. The United States has now added jobs for 86 consecutive months — a downward blip in September was later revised to show a small gain — and the unemployment rate is lower than it ever got during the last boom, which ended when the housing bubble burst.

Since the election of Donald Trump, the economy has been surging.

The president accelerated the growth with his deregulation of the private sector through executive edict. Additionally, the markets realize that the passage of the tax plan that is making its way through Congress would be a major boon for American industry.
