THEY CAN’T DENY IT
A new CBS News poll has predictable partisan divides on President Trump’s job performance and favorability. Republicans continue to stand staunchly by their man, Democrats cringe, and independents linger somewhere in the middle for the most part. There is one area they all agree on, however.
“Positive views of the economy have been inching up since last fall, and 64 percent of Americans now say the economy is in good shape, the highest percentage since May 2002. Majorities of all partisan stripes rate the nation’s economy positively,” the poll analysis says.
And the numbers: 78 percent of Republicans, 58 percent of Democrats and 60 percent of independents agree.
