Rasmussen Poll: Daily Presidential Tracking Poll Friday 11/2 … Donald Trump at 51% … Jobs, Jobs, Jobs and Country Headed in Right Direction
PRESIDENT TRUMP AT 51% …
According to the most recent Rasmussen daily tracking poll, President Donald Trump is peaking just at the right time ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Even though he is not on the ballot, what he has done in his first two years in office has been nothing short of miraculous and unrepresented. Especially with regards to the U.S. economy. The October jobs number of 250,000 jobs created may just be a game changer for this Tuesday. Coupled with increased wages, historic all-time low Hispanic unemployment, the Labor Force Participation at 66.2%, up from 66.0% in September, a record number of individuals participating in Labor Force at 28,500,000 and the United States added 32,000 new manufacturing jobs in October, more than 1,000 every day, including holidays and weekends.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 37% who Strongly Approve of the president is performing and 40% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -3. (See trends)
Also, the polls are trending toward Trump and the amazing job he has done with the economy.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of the economy. Thirty-three percent (33%) still rate his performance in this area as poor. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 30% of Likely U.S. Voters view Trump as the most important issue to their vote in the upcoming elections. The economy is most important for 22%, followed by 15% who rank illegal immigration that way and 14% who say the same of Obamacare.
43% Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction … This is an amazing number compared to the past, especially during the Obama years where it was in the mid to upper 20′s.
For the fourth week in a row, 43% of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, this time according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey for the week ending October 25.
This finding has been running in the 40s for most weeks this year after being in the mid- to upper 20s for much of 2016, President Obama’s last full year in office.
BOOM!!! 250,000 JOBS in OCTOBER, Far better than Expectations!!! 3% Wage Gain, FIRST TIME Since Recession!!! LOWEST Unemployment for Hispanics in History!!!
AMERICA … PRESIDENT TRUMP AND GOP CONGRESS MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
Just ahead of the 2018 midterm elections we are presented with tremendous jobs news … 250,000 jobs were created in October and there was a 3% wage gain, the first time since the recession. The 250,000 jobs created smashed the 190,000 expectation. Over the past 12 months, job gains have averaged a solid 211,000. In a time where many economists have said we are fully employed, Trump and the GOP are creating even more jobs. From CNS News, 156,562,000: Record Employment for 12th Time Under Trump!!!
The unemployment rate held at 3.7 percent, the same as September, which is the lowest it’s been in decades — since the end of 1969. And the Hispanic unemployment rate, 4.4 percent, has never been lower. The unemployment rate for African-Americans, 6.2 percent, remained near the all-time low of 5.9 percent set in May.
AMERICA, WHY WOULD YOU RUIN A GOOD THING AND CHANGE THIS? WHY WOULD YOU PUT DEMOCRATS IN POWER? CAN YOU NOT STAND PROSPERITY?
- Nonfarm payrolls increased by 250,000 for October, well ahead of Refinitiv estimates of 190,000.
- Average hourly earnings increased by 5 cents an hour for the month and 83 cents year-over-year, representing a 3.1 percent gain, the best pace since 2009.
- The unemployment rate stayed at 3.7 percent, the lowest since December 1969.
Job growth blew past expectations in October and year-over-year wage gains jumped past 3 percent for the first time since the Great Recession, the Labor Department reported Friday.
Nonfarm payrolls powered up by 250,000 for the month, well ahead of Refinitiv estimates of 190,000. The unemployment rate stayed at 3.7 percent, the lowest since December 1969.
“The job market is doing remarkably well, particularly this late in the expansion,” said Jim Baird, partner and chief investment officer for Plante Moran Financial Advisors. “This report adds yet another data point to a narrative that has been positive for the labor market this year. Little seems to stand in the way of the economy finishing 2018 out on solid footing.”
The ranks of the employed rose to a fresh record 156.6 million and the employment-to-population ratio increased to 60.6 percent, the highest level since December 2008, according to the department’s household survey. That headline jobless number stayed level even amid a two-tenths of a percentage point rise in the labor force participation rate to 62.9 percent.
Those counted as outside the labor force tumbled by 487,000 to 95.9 million.
But the bigger story may be wage growth, which has been the missing piece of the economic recovery. Average hourly earnings increased by 5 cents an hour for the month and 83 cents year over year, representing a 3.1 percent gain. The annual increase in wages was the best since 2009.
Health care showed some of the biggest gains for the month, adding 36,000. Manufacturing contributed 32,000, thanks to a gain in durable goods and in particular transportation equipment, which added 10,000.
Construction also rose sharply, with an increase of 30,000 while transportation and warehousing jumped by 42,000.
In addition, leisure and hospitality was a strong contributor, with 42,000 new positions after being unchanged in September, due likely to Hurricane Florence, the government report said.
Professional and business services increased by 35,000, bringing its 12-month total gain to 516,000, and mining added 5,000.
LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN 49 YEARS …
As reported at CNBC, the unemployment rate fell two-tenths of a percentage point to 3.7% . This is the lowest since December 1969 and one-tenth of a percentage point below expectations. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 134,000. Also, August’s initial jobs count was revised up dramatically, from 201,000 to 270,000, while July’s numbers came up as well, from 147,000 to 165,000.
Job creation for September fell to its lowest level in a year though the unemployment rate dropped to a point not seen in nearly 50 years, according to Labor Department figures released Friday.
Nonfarm payrolls rose just 134,000, well below Refinitiv estimates of 185,000 and the worst performance since September 2017 when a labor strike weighed on the numbers. The unemployment rate fell two-tenths of a percentage point to 3.7 percent, the lowest since December 1969 and one-tenth of a percentage point below expectations.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP .. MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
As reported at The Politico, the Trump administration announced late Sunday night that the United States, Mexico and Canada have reached a deal to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement. Another Trump promise to the American voters has been done. And once again it is good news for Americans and the U.S. economy. President Trump has done his part, now it it up to Congress to pass and make into law. Yet another reason to vote Republican in the 2018 midterm elections so to continue the Trump-GOP economic plan.
They said it couldn’t be done and Trump did it. Trump has fulfilled a huge campaign promise to the American workers. But I guess Obama thinks he should get credit for this too.
The new pact is a major step toward completing one of the president’s signature campaign promises.
Trade ministers from the U.S., Mexico and Canada have reached a deal to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Trump administration announced late Sunday night.
The new pact, which is being called the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, is a major step toward completing one of Trump’s signature campaign promises and gives the president a concrete policy win to tout on the campaign trail this fall. It also sets the stage for what is sure to be a high-stakes fight to get the agreement passed by Congress before it can become law.
U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in late August that officials are planning to sign with their Canadian and Mexican counterparts by the end of November — a date that would also satisfy Mexico, which is eager to have current President Enrique Peña Nieto sign the deal before his successor takes over Dec. 1.
“It’s a great win for the president and a validation for his strategy in the area of international trade,” a senior administration official said on a call with reporters late Sunday.
As stated at Town Hall, the economy is on a roll and it is due to President Donald Trump and the GOP, not obstructionist, resistance Democrats … So, let’s go down the checklist here. We’re cutting regulations, have opened a denuclearization dialogue with North Korea, created over 3 million jobs, boosted U.S. worker pay to its highest levels in 10 years, unemployment is at an 18-year low, consumer and small business confidence are record highs, and over three million workers received bonus checks of $1,000 or more because of the Trump tax cuts. Second quarter economic growth is at 4 percent. There are now more jobs than job seekers. The economy is booming.
Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett Educates the White House Press As To Who and What Is Responsible for Amazing Economy
WANT TO LEARN WHO REALLY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CURRENT THRIVING ECONOMY …
Watch the video below and you will see a masterful job by Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett educate the liberal White House press as to when and where and who and why the economy is doing so well today. Unemployment is at 3.8%, we have had record low unemployment for Africa-Americans and Hispanics. Millions of jobs being created including manufacturing ones who Obama said would never return. Business and consumer confidence is up. Last quarters GDP was 4.2%. The DOW hit yet another record high today of 26,743.50, up 86.52.
Kevin Hassett goes through chart after chart showing the trend lines that distinctly indicate during who’s presidency the amazing gains have been made. Please watch. What is rather ironic is Obama is taking credit for things in the economy that he claimed would never happen again. President Trump has reversed many of the economy killing regulations.
Hey Barack Obama, you didn’t build it!
Remember when Obama mocked Donald Trump prior to the 2016 elections, stating the jobs were not coming back and how could he make such claims come true. Remember when Obama stated, what does he have a magic wand? It would appear he did Barack. It just goes to show just how clueless Obama was in the economy and job creation.
