New Gallup Poll Says Americans Better Off Under Trump Than Obama...EVEN DURING A PANDEMIC!

The Gallup poll is one of the most thorough and reliable public surveys in the United States. In operation for nearly 90 years, the Gallup poll surveys over a thousand people per week from all 50 states, using randomly selected cell-phone and landline numbers.
According to the most recent pole, posing the question as to whether or not Americans are better of now than they were four years ago, over half of American adults responded with "YES".
"Only 32 percent say they are worse off than four years ago. The number is, as Fox News’s Laura Ingraham noted on Thursday night, 'the highest Gallup has ever recorded.'"
But it gets even better.
Matthew Boyle from Breitbart writes:
While the 56 percent number is impressive indeed — again the highest ever recorded this close to an election — it was even higher before the coronavirus pandemic swept across the United States. In February, a whopping 61 percent said they believed they were better off than three years earlier when Trump took office in January 2017. As such, while the number slid a little bit — five points — during the coronavirus pandemic the past six months, the number of Americans who consider their lives better with Trump as president remains at record levels even with all the disruption this year.
All this means, also, that the vast majority of Americans think their lives are better off — literally during, again, a pandemic that has upended American life — than it was when Obama was president and Trump’s opponent this year former Vice President Joe Biden was Obama’s second-in-command. Even with the disruption from the pandemic, in other words, it is hard to see those people who like life more now under Trump than they did when Biden was in charge voting for a change. And it would amount to a serious historical aberration for Trump to lose, given the trends in Gallup polling on this question since Reagan asked it of the public in 1984.
Despite everything the American people have had to put up with, Americans still say they'd rather have things the way they are now than go back to the days of the Obama Biden Administration.
According to Gallup, Americans haven't noticed such an improvement in decades.
But it doesn't stop there. More Americans say that although Joe Biden seems to have more "Presidential Qualities", the majority of Americans align more with President Trump's policies.
The year 2020 has been unforgiving, to say the least. But these numbers who some promising bright spots for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
In the grand scheme of things (and yes, Gallup even surveys that too), Americans are over all not happy with the current situation and the polls reflect that. Below is the graph that shows overall dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs.
But even with the divisive media, the Corona Virus, and racial tensions, and the economy decimated by lockdowns, Americans by and large say they're better off now than they were four years ago. It just goes to show that more Americans see what Donald Trump has done for this country and less Americans are listening to the fake news mobs. The Gallup Polls don't lie.
