(TheFreedomFlag.com)- President Donald Trump just broke yet another record with a new Gallup survey revealed this week. The poll found that a majority of Americans, some 56%, feel that they are better off now than they were four years ago under the Obama/Biden administration.
Four years ago, the Obama/Biden administration had just completed eight years of work. That’s almost a decade to improve the economy and peoples’ lives…and this poll suggests they failed to do it.
Laura Ingraham of Fox News said on Thursday night that the number is the “highest Gallup has ever recorded,” with only 32% of Americans saying they feel worse off than they were four years ago.
How bad does an administration need to be for people to feel better off during a global pandemic that shut down the national economy?
President Donald Trump responded to the poll, describing it as “pretty amazing.”
The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden). Highest number on record! Pretty amazing!

It’s good news for President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly performed poorly in national and swing state polls. Numbers like this bode well for the president given that incumbent president seeking re-election have never seen numbers this high. In fact, no other president has ever had a majority of Americans saying they feel better off than they did four years ago.
% of Americans who say they are better off now than they were 4 years ago
Sept 2020: 56 percent
Dec 2012: 45 percent
Oct 2004: 47 percent
Oct 1992: 38 percent

During Obama’s campaign to be re-elected in 2012, just 45% of Americans felt they were better off than they were before he took office. George Bush beat Obama in his re-election campaign with 47%, but still not managing to reach a majority.
President Donald Reagan, who implemented history tax cuts in the same way President Donald Trump did just a year into his administration, won a 49-state landslide in his re-election campaign with just 44% of Americans saying they felt better off than they did four years ago.
So could the polls be wrong just like they were in 2016? Could President Donald Trump be on track for a huge victory in November?
