There's a bigger chance that it grinds on for months and Trump's current "surge" in the approval/disapproval polls will dwindle away like his stock market gains.

Trump is blessed with Teela Brown's luck. It's not normal.

That's why I'm watching to see if this isn't but a short term thing, which would be normal. After any major event or happening there usually is a spike or a drop for a few weeks, then the ratings return to normal as prior to any event happening. Whether that will be the case or not, remains to be seen.

I've noticed it isn't the Republicans nor the democrats that have changed their view on Trump's job performance. The increase comes from independents, the non-affiliated and less partisan. But they're finicky and can revert back to where they were in a heartbeat or they could attached themselves permanently. Time will tell.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
