President Trump has ‘Made America Great Again’ according to a newly-released Rasmussen Report.
Overall, “voters tend to believe President Trump has made America stronger and remain more optimistic about the nation’s future than they have been in years.”
It’s a stunning reversal from decades of managed decline pushed by the political establishment at the expense of everyday Americans: endless, costly foreign wars, continued outsourcing of the American supply chain to China, unfair immigration policies subsidized by hard-earned tax dollars, and trade deals that sacrifice American workers.
And it reveals President Trump is entering the 2020 election cycle with high levels of support, confirming that retrofitting the Republican Party with populist ideals is what voters want.
The poll shows 46 percent of likely voters believe America has “become a stronger nation” since Trump’s election, while fourt-one percent believe he’s made the nation weaker. Ten percent say the nation is the same.
Look no further than President Trump’s killing of Qassem Soleimani – while abstaining from dragging the country into another endless war in the Middle East – or even his ability to make alliances like NATO “stronger” by compelling member states to finally pay their fair share, according to the NATO Secretary General.
These trends have instilled confidence amongst Americans that the future is just as bright, if not brighter, than the present: 50 percent feel America’s “best days are in the future,” as Trump stated in his State of the Union speech earlier this week.
We look at tomorrow and see unlimited frontiers just waiting to be explored. Our brightest discoveries are not yet known. Our most thrilling stories are not yet told. Our grandest journeys are not yet made. The American Age, the American Epic, the American Adventure, has only just begun!

In comparison, virtually all reports conducted by Rasmussen since November 2006 have seen the response to the same question hover around the mid to upper 30s.
This Bush-Obama era trend began to reverse around May 2017 – just 5 months after Trump took office.
Similarly, nearly double the number of voters when compared to President Obama feel that under President Trump the country is headed “in the right direction.”
During President Obama’s last full year in office, the number fluctuated between the mid to upper 20s, whereas President Trump is at 42 percent.
It’s ‘morning again in America.’ Finally.
