It's a special Valentine's Day this year for a few reasons; we have a political and patriotic twirl to Valentine's Day this year. President Donald Trump is making us all fall in love with America once more.
Yes, President Trump has made America great once again. The economy is blossoming. Jobs are plentiful. Wages are way up. Stock market trading is probably the best of all time. But it's more than that.
On this Valentine's Day, President Trump has made it modern to love America once more. It's cool to be American. It's cool to rejoice America's success. It's politically appropriate to put America first. We're encouraged to stand for the national anthem and to chant, “USA, USA! “
And the effect of all of this is that Americans who actually love America are happy once again. We're feeling probably the most pleased of our lives. We are able to be ourselves. We don't need to be noiseless ever again. We're no longer irritated and mad. It's our turn to emerge from the storage room.
We're no more the “muted majority.” Now we're the ones who are loud and proud.
Trump is like getting Tony Robbins as president. Trump has unleashed our inner strength. Trump has unleashed our inner joy and happiness. We just found out Trump will be the 1st president to be grand marshal at the Daytona 500. Yeehaw!
The evidence is in the pudding. Gallup just polled Americans regarding their “satisfaction” level. An amazing 90 percent of Americans report feeling “satisfied.” This is the highest possible percentage since the poll started off. Even more remarkable, the number of Americans confirming they are “very satisfied” hit 65 percent, also an all-time high.
Not surprisingly, Republicans top the list of happiness. Ninety-three percentage of Republicans are “satisfied.” Eighty percent report being “very satisfied.” Both are all-time highs.
But it's not just Republicans who are happy this Valentine's Day. Remarkably, pretty much everyone is happy with Trump as president.
Americans who earn $100,000 or higher are 96 percent “satisfied” and 76 percent “very satisfied.” Married Americans are 93 percent “satisfied” and 74 percent “very satisfied.” Men are 92 percent “satisfied.” But women are 87% “satisfied.” That's pretty darn good, also.
Poll after poll demonstrates the exact same result. Sixty-one percent of Americans record they are better off than they were four years ago under President Barack Obama. That's far greater than in any election cycle where an incumbent president ran for reelection in the past three decades.
Confidence in our personal financial situation just hit an all-time high. Confidence in the U.S. economy just hit a 20-year high. Consumer confidence is at a 17-year high. Americans pleased about the route of this country just hit a 15-year high. Sixty-nine percent of small-business owners record they benefitted from Trump's tax cuts. The list will go on and on. Everyone seems to be happy.
