Trump Year 1 in a Single Chart

[cap­tion id=“attachment_104658” align=“aligncenter” width=“719”] The Nation’s Top Two Prob­lems per Gallup over the last 10 years[/caption]

There are a lot of ways you can grade the 1st year of the Trump pres­i­dency USA today ran a piece giv­ing him grades from A+ to F, but for my money the best way to see how the pub­lic grades this pres­i­dency is not a poll con­cern­ing this president’s approval but chart above show­ing Gallup’s polling of the nation’s top two prob­lems over the least decade.

As you can see from these num­bers over the last ten years the econ­omy has been the #1 or #2 issue in the coun­try every sin­gle year.

Not any­more.

Accord­ing to Gallup after one year of Trump in the White House not only the Econ­omy dropped to sixth (Jobs is 7th) but accord­ing to them you have to go back to 1999 to find a time when less peo­ple men­tioned the econ­omy as the country’s #1 prob­lem.

And this is BEFORE the full effect of the Trump tax cuts that not a sin­gle demo­c­rat in either house voted for takes effect.

There are some peo­ple who think the GOP in gen­eral and Trump in par­tic­u­lar are in trou­ble come Novem­ber 2018.

After look­ing at those num­bers I don’t.

The Nation’s Top Two Problems per Gallup over the last 10 years

There are a lot of ways you can grade the 1st year of the Trump presidency USA today ran a piece giving him grades from A+ to F, but for my money the best way to see how the public grades this presidency is not a poll concerning this president’s approval but chart above showing Gallup’s polling of the nation’s top two problems over the least decade.

As you can see from these numbers over the last ten years the economy has been the #1 or #2 issue in the country every single year.

Not anymore.

According to Gallup after one year of Trump in the White House not only the Economy dropped to sixth (Jobs is 7th) but according to them you have to go back to 1999 to find a time when less people mentioned the economy as the country’s #1 problem.

And this is BEFORE the full effect of the Trump tax cuts that not a single democrat in either house voted for takes effect.

There are some people who think the GOP in general and Trump in particular are in trouble come November 2018.

After looking at those numbers I don’t.
