WASHINGTON – True, it’s an unscientific, anyone-welcome-to-vote poll.

But it’s on the Drudge Report, one of the most influential websites.

A stunning 92 percent of the respondents believe President Trump is doing a “great” or “good” job six months into his presidency, despite intense criticism and virtually a total-opposition approach Democrats and the establishment media.

Likely not indicative of the U.S. at large, the poll does suggest President Trump continues to hold strong support from his conservative base.

The percentage favor Trump varied by only fractions of a point as the response total rose to well over a quarter of a million over the day Friday.

Other polls agree.

According to a poll by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal, Trump enjoys 82 percent support among Republicans.

Chris Buskirk and Seth Leibsohn explain how the conservative elite, Washington insiders, and mainstream media were so completely out of touch with reality during the 2016 US presidential election cycle, in “American Greatness.”


“The vast majority of the public has not been moved in a significant way off of their impressions of Trump from the beginning of his presidency,” according to pollster Fred Yang.

Other metrics demonstrate Trump continues to enjoy mass support among conservatives, such as the recent Republican sweep of four contested House special elections.

Nowhere was this more apparent than the GA-06 race in Georgia, where Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff. Democrats set a spending record, writing checks for $32 million, compared to $23 million for the GOP.

When Handel won on election night, her supporters erupted into chants of “Trump! Trump! Trump!”

“They thought the [special elections] were going to be a referendum on this president,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on “Fox and Friends.” “And once again, he proved, never underestimate him, and that the American people put him and other Republicans in place for a reason: They have an agenda.”

Trump’s base also remains skeptical of the D.C. establishment and mainstream media. Eighty percent of Republicans believe Trump’s shortcomings are because “the establishment in D.C. opposes the changes Trump wants to make.”

Seventy-six percent of Republican voters believe that most reporters are biased against Trump, and only 34 percent of likely U.S. voters believe media coverage of Trump is “good” or “excellent,” according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports.
