The liberal media doesn't like to hear good positive news about Trump. After a week that saw President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman convicted on eight counts of fraud and his former lawyer plead guilty to felony campaign finance charges, the president's job approval rating remains virtually unchanged, new polling from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal shows.
Now comes the negative liberal media spin. The stability in Trump's approval rating also comes as more than half of voters say he has not been honest and truthful regarding the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. And fewer than three-in-ten voters are convinced that Trump himself is not implicated in the wrongdoing of the six of his associates who have now either been convicted of crimes or have pleaded guilty.
Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public
Opinion Strategies, who conducted this survey with Democratic pollster
Peter Hart and his team at Hart Research Associates, called Trump's approval
rating "remarkably stable" despite the Manafort and Cohen developments,
both of which became public on the same afternoon last Tuesday. Hart
added that, for Democrats hoping to craft a midterm election strategy,
the week's news thus far "represents a fool's-gold opportunity rather than
a silver-bullet solution."
