MSNBC host: Trump supporters ‘vote pretty selfishly’
MSNBC hosts linked President Trump’s approval rating with people who vote based on “what’s going to give me more money in my pockets” on Thursday.
MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle also said “a lot of people vote pretty selfishly” when it comes to supporting Trump.
“While we could find or do find the president’s constant lying or lawlessness or reprehensible behavior morally unacceptable, a lot of people vote pretty selfishly, and they say, ‘What’s going to give me more money in my pockets?’ ” Ruhle said in opening a segment with billionaire Tom Steyer.
Trump is currently sitting at 43.3 percent in the RealClearPolitics average of major polls, a 6.2 point rise since December of 2017, before the GOP tax bill was passed. In a breakdown of respondents, his approval among Republicans is consistently high and consistently low among Democrats.
