CNN Analyst Trump May Be Making a Comeback


CNN Analyst Trump May Be Making a Comeback A CNN political analyst warned Democrats this
week against becoming too cocksure of themselves heading into the midterm elections, cautioning
that President Donald Trump �has temporarily stopped the bleeding� and is on the verge
of bouncing back after months of an ailing favorability rating. �(T)he fact remains that his approval rating
is increasing,� wrote CNN political analyst Julian Zelizer, a history and public affairs
professors at Princeton University. RealClearPolitics revealed that Trump�s
average approval rate currently hovers around a notable recent high of 41.9 percent. �And Democrats are seeing some slippage
in the generic ballot (it asks voters, without using specific names, whether they will vote
for a Democrat or a Republican in the midterms) for November, which suggests that a �wave�
election is not as inevitable as it looked just a few weeks ago,� Zelizer continued. This stunning change in outlook belies months
of previous polling showing that Democrats were slated to enter the midterm elections
with a �sizable advantage,� as Politico reported two months prior. According to Zelizer, the change began to
manifest around Christmas, when the president passed a historic tax reform bill that cut
taxes for 90 percent of Americans and reduced America�s corporate tax rate by 14 percent. Passage of the bill likewise spurred a myriad
of companies into doling out benefits to their millions of employees, including bonuses of
up to $1,000 and more and an increase in wages. While Zelizer admitted in his op-ed that �(p)olls
now show that approval for the measure has been steadily rising,� he framed the president�s
tax bill in a way similar to how Democrat politicians such as House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have done. He accused Trump of �shed(ding) any pretense
of being a true economic populist and hand(ing) corporate America the big, fat whopping tax
break that it had been waiting for since the start of his presidency,� the suggestion
being that the bill was nothing more than a gift to the wealthy. Republicans have already begun using this
sort of rhetoric from Democrat lawmakers � particularly a remark from Pelosi claiming that the benefits
being enjoyed by working-class Americans amounts to �crumbs� � to hammer them for allegedly
being out of touch, as reported by The Hill. �Her �crumbs� comment is something that
I think we can use pretty effectively, and most workers that have now seen 50 to 100
bucks extra in their paychecks don�t think that�s crumbs,� National Republican Congressional
Committee chairman Rep. Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, told reporters last week. Vice President Mike Pence echoed this sentiment
as well during a GOP retreat, stating, �If you�re going to say that $1,000 is crumbs,
you live in a different world than I�m living in.� It�s this dichotomy between the rhetoric
of Democrat politicians and the experiences of working-class Americans that some believe
may cost the Democrats come November. �As long as the economic trends continue,
President Trump and the GOP will be in good position to claim that it�s Morning in America
Again, to borrow President Reagan�s phrase in 1984,� Zelizer wrote. �Regardless of who deserves the credit for
the economic boom, and regardless of the very real problems still facing millions of middle-
and working-class families, the numbers are strong enough to be used by Republicans on
the campaign trail as a sign of success.� What do you think? Scroll down to comment below.
