(RightWing.org) – While the national media tries to create a narrative that Trump is more likely to lose than win, his approval rating tells quite the different story.
Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll has Trump at his highest approval in a year with a rating of 53%. The last time it was this high was right after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced impeachment hearings. Trump is also pulling ahead, albeit slightly, in a head-to-head matchup against Biden. The president is now ahead 47%-46%.

Elections are not won or lost based on polling and approval ratings, but they are a good measure of public sentiment. As Trump continues to receive positive approval ratings, the 2020 election map may look very different from 2016. Several purple states are starting to look good for the president’s reelection chances. Minnesota is one such state. It hasn’t voted for a Republican president since 1972. Based on current numbers, Democrats are concerned Biden could lose the state.
If Trump holds on to Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and if he picks up a state or two, he will easily win re-election. Most polls in battleground states are well within the margin of error, and Trump is picking up momentum as the two candidates prepare for the debates starting on September 29.
The election is getting close, and people are paying attention after a summer of riots. We’ll keep you updated as campaign news breaks.
