Three separate polls show President Trump gaining support in the face of his controversial tweets telling the ‘squad’ that if they don’t like America, they’re free to leave.
“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe … telling the people of the United States … how our government is to be run,” Trump tweeted.
“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came?”
Democrats presumably saw this as a means to rally their party together to focus on the resistance. Instead, it has galvanized Republican support, motivated patriots who agree, and bolstered the President’s overall approval numbers.
According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, Republican support for the President prior to his tweets hammering the ‘squad’ – Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) – stood at a net 67 percent approval rating.
After the controversy? That number climbed to 72 percent approval.

“The results showed strong Republican backing for Trump as the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives passed a symbolic resolution on Tuesday, largely along party lines, to condemn him for “racist comments” against the four Democratic lawmakers,” Reuters reported.
Voters Agree With ‘America, Love it or Leave It’
According to a YouGov survey, nearly 90 percent of Republican voters are ‘okay’ with the President’s specific comments telling these far-left radicals to leave America if they have nothing but disdain for the greatest country on Earth.
Even better – A majority of Hispanic voters (52 percent) were at least ‘okay’ with Trump’s comments, with 21 percent referring to them as ‘great.’

Approval Rating on the Rise
A Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll shows that President Trump’s approval rating popped four full points – from 46 percent to 50 percent – since he tweeted about the ‘squad.’
At the same point in his presidency, Barack Obama had a 45 percent approval rating (5 points less than Trump) while 54 percent disapproved.
Trump took a moment to mock Ocasio-Cortez for helping improve his poll numbers while condemning her as a “vicious young socialist.”
New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 Election, has just announced that “Trump” numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50%. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen. America will never buy your act! #MAGA2020

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway explained it best.
“It’s always racism, sexism and xenophobia and it’s getting tired,” she said of Democrats.
They’ve thrown every name they can imagine at him and it isn’t sticking. Voters know the Democrat party has nothing but baseless lies to promote as we head into the 2020 election cycle.
