Something has changed. And better still, these good numbers for Trump are a trend. For the rest of us, the trend is your friend.
The reason he’s up, despite the Beltway’s over-covered supposed turmoil at the White House, and the Russia,Russia,Russia obsession of the leftwing press, is not hard to discern. Job creation just hit the 300,000 mark, a number we have not seen in about a decade. Taxes went down – and they went down hard for almost everyone. Factories and their jobs are returning to the states. Workforce participation is growing. And get a load of this one, from the Wall Street Journal:

Oh yeah. What it means is exactly what Democrats think it means: Bad news for them. Get a load of Axios’s headline on one of its top features for today:
New peril for moderate Dems: Voters happy with Trump’s economy
Peril? We’re supposed to be concerned because these people face the prospect of losing their grip on power? No great blue wave? Because they had their chance to create a good economy through free market reforms, and they blew it? What kind of political party gets thrilled about economic bad news and upset at economic good news?
Just Democrats. These clowns held nearly all of the political power dating from 2006 through the Obama years and had all the opportunity in the world to enact free market reforms such as President Trump has. Cut taxes, cut regulations, cut bureaucrats? They could have done that, because free market ideas belong to anyone who wants to give them a go, not just Republicans, yet somehow they didn’t. And now they’re unhappy about how numbers work. Do they really think voters should love them despite the bad economy they created?
Nah, not so much that. They think voters should shut up, acknowledge the Left’s higher intelligence and moral superiority, and meekly accept our role as helpless cogs in their clanking, sputtering Rule By Expert machine until such time as they figure out some way to make the infernal contraption run smoothly at last.
It won’t be long now. We promise. Trust us. THIS TIME FOR SURE!
The Axios headline quoted above is actually correct in part: they are in peril—peril most dire and deserved, stemming from the fact that there really ARE no “moderate Democrats” anymore. Unless they somehow find a way to convincingly become pretty much everything they aren’t now, the Democrat Socialists are finished. The pathetically fatuous article I did an old-fashioned fisking of the other day declaring that “It’s time to give socialism a try!” tells you all you need to know about just how likely they are to find it.
On the contrary, Proggy McDemocrat obviously much prefers to double down on delusion. The Democrat Socialists don’t seem able to perceive that their problem isn’t Trump, nor even his supporters. Nor is it racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, or Islamophobia. It isn’t Collusion. It isn’t HATE™, BIGOTRY™, or FEAR™. It isn’t Corporate Greed, nor is it any other convenient scapegoat they can dream up. It’s them.
It’s a tough admission to have to make, sure. No one enjoys having to admit error about even small things. If they’re to regain power, shitlibs have to face up to being wrong about absolutely EVERYTHING. Such a monumental admission must come despite the unshakeable conviction that they’re RIGHT, that they’re SMART, that they’re the only ones qualified to micromanage the affairs of a vast lowing herd too benighted to act in their own best interests. It requires humility from the most insufferably arrogant among us, intellectual flexibility from the most rigid of ideologues, tolerance from the intolerant. It requires contrition from people who think everybody else owes THEM an apology for screwing them over and failing to appreciate them.
Reality sure is a brass-plated bitch, ain’t it, Lefty? No wonder you guys shun it like vampires shun sunlight. Bottom line: when good news for the country is bad news for your party, you’re doing it wrong. And it will assuredly wreck you in the end.
