New polls showing President Trump’s approval ratings have increased significantly, and a good portion of voters say the convention has changed their votes.

New data from Rasmussen Reports show 51 percent of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance compared to 48 percent who disapprove.

This number is up from 46 percent just one month ago.

The large increase could certainly be a result of the Democratic National Convention as 19 percent of voters say the conventions have had an effect on their vote, despite the RNC not happening yet.

“Thirty-five percent (35%) say they are more likely to watch a convention this year than in previous years. Twenty-one percent (21%) are less likely to do so,” the report from Rasmussen said.

Another potential reason for Trump’s bump is that 59 percent of voters said they are likely to watch some of the RNC compared to the slightly less 53 percent who said they’d watch part of the DNC.

Among independents, 44 percent are likely to watch the DNC and 52 percent are likely to watch the RNC.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
