Tracking Trump - Direction of the Country for June 23rd:  

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: 31.5%  
  • Wrong Track: 55%     
  • Net Negative: -23.5%    

And today:   

  • Right Direction: 30%  
  • Wrong Track: 56%     
  • Net Negative: -26%    

Change: +3.1% since Inauguration Day & -2.5% from a week ago. 

Just as President Trump's approval tracked a bit lower this week - so did our overall optimism. We can make this complicated but it doesn't have to be. Is healthcare more affordable yet? No. Are taxes lower yet? No. Has media scared people into believing that Trump's the boggy man and his agenda is dead? Not for the non-bigoted but the noise makes people think it's unlikely reforms will pass. Until next week...
