Tracking Trump - Direction of the Country for June 2nd:
Bottom Line: This Friday feature is designed for political junkies. For years, despite generally favorable approval ratings for President Obama, we'd collectively been unhappy with the overall direction of our country. In the early months of the Trump Presidency we're seeing a bit of a shift with a less popular President but a bit more optimistic country generally.
In this entry I'll be tracking the overall view of the direction of the country led by President Trump.
Here's where we stood on Inauguration Day:
- Right Direction: 30%
- Wrong Track: 59.1%
- Net Negative: -29.1%
Last week's ratings:
- Right Direction: 27.5%
- Wrong Track: 58%
- Net Negative: -30.5%
- Right Direction: 32%
- Wrong Track: 56.7%
- Net Negative: -24.7%
Change: +4.4% since Inauguration Day & +5.8% from a week ago.
A week ago we were the most pessimistic we'd been under the Trump administration. This week we saw a pretty solid bounce back off of those lows and while we're still generally still negative - we're still more optimistic than we were prior to Trump's inauguration.
