Trump’s disapproval numbers are running at around 56%, while his approval numbers are around 39%. But, Legal Insurrection, Politico, and Victor David Hanson all seem to agree that Democrats would be naive to assume this means they’re going to win big in the midterms.
For one thing, his numbers haven’t changed since he was inaugurated. That’s unusual. Most presidents get a honeymoon period when folks are giving the new guy the benefit of the doubt.
For another, privately done research shows the so-called “resistance” may be backfiring. Hanson writes:
“There is a populist and growing resistance to the Orwellian idea that free speech is hate speech, that equality of opportunity is defined only by equality of result, and that identity politics determines the degree of government-mandated penance and reparations. … The quiet resistance is far larger than the loud Resistance and far more revolutionary. Its nature is still not fully understood by the elite Left.”
