For the third week in a row – ever since President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the number of Americans who say the country is on the “right track” has been at 45 percent or higher. That’s a ten-point jump from two weeks prior, when Barack Obama still occupied the White House.
In fact, according to the Rasmussen Poll, throughout much of Obama’s eight years, the “right track” “wrong track” numbers have been dismal. They were mired in the high 20 percent to low 30 percent, only jumping above 40 percent one time in late 2012.
That was after Obama’s second election, when America still had hope that President Obama could turn things around.
But that 41 percent fell to the mid-30s, then to the 20s by September 2013. By October 2013, they fell as low as 13 percent.
How times have changed.
