Yeah, Trump’s base is still solidly behind him

This has got to be frustrating for the #nevertrump Beltway media

(National SentinelPolling: Try as the disgustingly dishonest establishment media has, it still cannot separate President Donald J. Trump and his core supporters.

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll released Wednesday of voters in “Trump counties” found those parts of the country overwhelmingly back the president’s economic agendas.

As The Daily Caller reports, the poll of 600 adults found:

Trump has enjoyed widespread support in these counties for his willingness to negotiate with American companies on an individual basis to prevent the firms from outsourcing jobs overseas. Seventy-five percent of respondents approved of his methods, while only 14 percent opposed them.

Roughly two-thirds of those surveyed support Trump’s apparent willingness to act in response to North Korean provocations. A similar proportion of those surveyed supported Trump’s military response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his own citizens.

There were some rough spots for the president, however. Only one-in-three approved of his firing of FBI Director James Comey, while six-in-10 would like to see him use Twitter a whole lot less.

“Without a doubt, Donald Trump’s personal style was part of his appeal in the 2016 campaign,” said Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducted the survey with Republican Bill McInturff told WSJ. “But more and more it appears to be a distraction that is starting to hit a sour note with this base.”(not us — we think that’s a perfect way for him to bypass the dishonest media and go directly to the folks).

Personally, we are fans of the president’s use of Twitter; we think it’s a perfect way for him to bypass the dishonest media and go directly to the folks.
