Just a few years ago the Republican Party rejected Trump.
But now that he’s president, he truly has become the most powerful Republican in America.
And he just proved he runs the Republican Party after scoring a huge victory.
President Donald Trump is immensely popular, especially among his fellow Republicans.
Recent polling has shown that Trump has over 70 percent approval among Republicans.
That number is so good at the point he is in his presidency that no Republican has ever been able to match it, besides George W. Bush whose approval rating had a massive boost after the 9/11 terrorist attack.
Trump’s increased approval among Republicans can almost certainly be attributed to the fact that he has followed through on many of the promises he made.
Usually when a politician gets into office they back away from the promises they make, especially the ones that are harder to achieve.
But Trump has not.
He has taken on the Democrats, and the establishment in the Republican Party and lowered taxes left unfair agreements with other countries, forced fairer trade around the world, and created a more positive relationship with North Korea.
And all these moves have brought about noticeable results.
The unemployment rate is much lower than in previous administrations, the stock market is doing fantastic, and economic growth over the last quarter was 4.1%.
Those improvements aren’t just signs of a good president; they are affirmations for just how much Trump understands the economy.
And they also put a lot of trust in Trump’s judgment, which seems to be carrying over into political endorsements.
On Tuesday, there were a number of elections across the country.
Those elections created a true test for Donald Trump on his influence, and whether or not his opinion matters to Republicans across the country.
As it turns out, it does, and candidates blessed with the endorsement of the president did very well.
In Michigan, U.S. combat veteran and businessman John James beat out his more establishment opponent, Sandy Pensler in a race that likely came down to one thing.
That one thing was the endorsement of Donald Trump, which went to James, who won.
Also, in Missouri, the state’s Attorney General Josh Hawley found himself in a competitive and packed race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.
The race was seen as competitive until Donald Trump dropped his endorsement of Hawley, at which point it became apparent he would almost certainly win.
That was proven as correct when Hawley beat his closest opponent by nearly 50% of the vote.
While those races were all primaries, Trump was able to gain one ally in a special election being held in Ohio.
In the special election for Ohio’s 12th congressional district, Republican Troy Balderson, who Trump supported, beat back the Democrat, Danny O’Connor, who was endorsed by virtually the entire Democrat machine.
Trump is proving that his influence is important, and as time goes by it will only be proven more apparent.
