Trump’s improved image: Is it approval — or amnesia?
This is a difficult question to answer, as there is no definitive way of measuring the approval or disapproval of voters. However, it does appear that President Trump has enjoyed a significant boost in approval ratings since his first term in office. One possible explanation is that some voters may have looked past his divisive rhetoric, focusing instead on his policies and accomplishments, such as securing strong job growth. It is also possible that some voters may have simply forgotten some of his more controversial moments during this election cycle, choosing instead to focus on his current policies and rhetoric. Whatever the explanation, Trump’s improved image may be indicative of either voter approval or amnesia.
