President Donald Trump’s approval ratings soared to 52% in a new national poll after giving one of the most pro-life State of the Union addresses in recent memory.

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove,” writes Rasmussen Reports.

The data shows 39% of those polled “Strongly Approve” of the president’s performance and 39% “Strongly Disapprove” as America continues to be as sharply divided on Trump as they were on pro-abortion President Barack Obama.

Trump’s strong approval rating comes as more pro-abortion Democrats, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, announce their decision to officially enter the 2020 presidential race.

President Trump used his State of the Union to condemn democratic efforts to push abortion laws toward legal infanticide.

He slammed the governors of New York and Virginia for promoting abortion up to birth and infanticide. And he called for Congress to pass a ban on late-term abortions on babies who are capable of feeling pain.

There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days.

Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.

And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.

Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life.

And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth — all children — born and unborn— are made in the holy image of God.
