In the new Harvard-Harris poll, @realDonaldTrump approval is at 47 percent. That's up two points since last month- yet another sign that these giant, Liberal, apocalypse du jour meltdowns are having no effect on Trump approval.

Thread👇
69 percent say the economy is strong v 31 percent who think it's weak. This number is VERY important going into the midterms. Especially given that Democrats told us so much about how the economy was going to tank under Conservative policies.
68 percent say that their personal financial situation is improving or staying the same v 26 percent who say theirs is getting worse. That exposes a certain big, fat lie the Dems were telling on how tax cuts would effect the middle class
58 percent say they approve of the job @realDonaldTrump is doing on "stimulating jobs" and 57 percent approve of the job he's doing on the economy. Those are kiler, killer numbers with the party headed into a midterm election.
63 percent STILL favor @realdonaldtrump's DACA compromise from months ago. This has not lost any support from month to month.
61 percent say our current border security is inadequate. That's a huge number. So much for the Dem idea that open borders are a popular idea.
Next question, "Do you think we should basically have open borders or do you think we need secure borders?" 24 percent say open borders while 76 percent say secure borders.

A vast, vast majority of Americans are still pretty smart.
60 percent say they support building a combination of physical and electronic barriers across the U.S./Mexico border.
51 percent believe illegal immigration increases crime, 41 percent believe it has no effect, and 7 percent inexplicably believe illegal immigration somehow reduces crime.
Do you think ICE should be disbanded? 31 percent say yes. A huge majority, 69 percent, say no.
Wow! Even after last week's fever pitch smear of the Trump administration, 70 percent say we need STRICTER enforcement of our immigration laws. Only 30 percent say looser.
36 percent believe that people who make it across the border illegally should be allowed to stay, while 64 percent believe they should be sent home.
"Do you think that parents with children who make it across our border illegally should be allowed to stay in the country or [be] sent home?"

39 percent say stay. 61 percent say sent home.
53 percent majority believe that people who cross border illegally should be prosecuted. 50 percent say parents with children who enter illegally should be prosecuted. Looks like Trump's zero tolerance policy is not the public opinion disaster the media has made it our to be
45 percent approve of catch and release policy while 55 percent believe in holding illegal crossers in custody until their hearing
47 percent believe in catch in release for illegal crossers with children, while 53 percent believe in holding them in custody until their hearing.
A massive 88 percent believe that the parents and children should be held together while only 12 percent believe they should be separated.
80 percent favor hiring more immigration judges to speed up the process.
55 percent majority believe asylum should only be for those who can specifically show their government was persecuting them
Wow! 73 percent said Trump admin acted appropriately by reversing its separation policy.
71 percent approve of Trump's executive order reversing the separation policy.
I was shocked by the immigration numbers in this poll. It appears the mainstream media and Democrat hysteria is NOT persuading anyone. So many comparisons to Nazi Germany and Hitler- more than I can count, and that attitude is in now way reflected in this poll
84 percent are against the sanctuary city policy of not notifying immigration authorities when an illegal immigrant is in custody. 84 percent! The Democrats are so totally on the fringe regarding some of these issues that it's shocking.
65 percent favor sanctions/tariffs on Mexico if they adopt the leading presidential candidate's policy of mass border crossings as a right.
57 percent say they favor building a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border as a response to that candidate's statement that going to the U.S. is the right of every North American. So, that backfired pretty profoundly.
72 percent say it is not acceptable for a restaurant to discriminate against anyone for their political views.
Big majority, 57 percent, say they approve of how @realdonaldtrump is handling North Korea. That's way up from last time if I remember correctly.
59 percent approve of how the U.S. government is handling North Korea.
.@realdonaldtrump receives 74 percent approval for meeting with Kim Jong Un. That is a HUGE number to approve of anything on any question that contains the words "President Trump."
61 percent consider the agreement signed by @realDonaldTrump and Kim Jong Un to be a "diplomatic victory by the Trump administration."
64 percent support the suspension of joint military exercises between the U.S. and SK even though the media told us it was the end of the world
Only 52 percent think Trump should get a Nobel prize if he successfully denuclearizes the North Korean peninsula. Come on, people! I don't think they understand the significance of such an accomplishment.
54 percent say President Obama was too lenient when negotiating with China, and- I'll include this just for giggles- 6 percent think Obama was too tough on China. 😂
59 percent say the Mueller investigation is hurting the country
Only 35 percent say they think Mueller has found evidence of Russian collusion. If I remember correctly, that is way, way down.
50 percent say Obama politicized the FBI
60 percent say the actions of the FBI and CIA in the Hillary email case and Trump-Russia case need to be investigated.
Wow on this one. Wow. 64 percent support appointing a special counsel to investigate abuses at the FBI. 64 percent! I'm shocked by this one.
77 percent say the FBI and DOJ need to start turning over all documents requested by Congress.
My big takeaway from this Harvard-Harris poll is that the aggressive anti-Trump narratives espoused by Democrats and the MSM do not have any effect on public opinion. In fact, they may actually be having the OPPOSITE effect they are intended to have.
