Brace Yourselves. This Might Just Ruin Your Day. On the Other Hand...

Remember we all said he would never get elected? We all were convinced that Hillary Clinton would become the first woman president of the United States. And then, like a kick in the gut, the election went to the most improbable candidate in American presidential history, Donald J. Trump.

Trump has been widely criticized in the media for his response to the Parkdale, Florida school massacre. The Trump response was to arm teachers,  up to 20% of the staff in each school. Strictly concealed carry. That earned Trump no end of ridicule and derision.

Apparently a good many Americans didn't see it that way. Trump's proposal to turn US schools into the OK Corral seems to have earned him a rebound in public support.

A poll by Rasmussen Reports has Trump's approval rating hitting 50%. Barack Obama's approval rating at this point in his presidency was only 45%.

There's the link. Read it for yourself. I can't bear to repeat it.

But wait! CNN has released a poll that finds Trump's support hasn't soared but, instead, has tanked.  The CNN poll finds Trump's approval at an all-time low at 35%.

Trump's approval rating in a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS stands at 35%, down five points over the last month to match his lowest level yet.

The slide follows a January bump in approval for the President, a finding that appeared connected to a bullish stock market and strong reviews for the economy. His new rating matches a December poll, which marked his lowest approval rating in CNN polling since taking office in January 2017.
