BEDMINSTER NJ - As President Trump plans his first trip of the summer to the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster this Thursday night, May 4th, UltraViolet, a leading women’s advocacy group, is renewing its “More Popular Than Trump” campaign - with plans to saturate the Bedminster media market with all things that the group believes are more popular than the President of the United States.

The campaign will focus, among other things, on abortion rights.

Starting today, and running through Monday UltraViolet has commissioned a digital truck billboard to circle Bedminster declaring “Abortion Access is More Popular than Trump.”  Starting on Thursday night, the digital billboards will be on I-78, to troll Trump as he heads from New York City to Bedminster.

“Since Donald Trump is so obsessed with his own ratings and popularity, prioritizing them over issues that actually impact the American people, we could think of no better way of trolling him than surrounding his golf course where he’ll vacation all summer with a clear message: America rejects Trump and his agenda,” said Shaunna Thomas, Co-founder of UltraViolet.  “Among the many things that are more popular than Trump are abortion access, the Affordable Care Act  and policies that would guarantee paid family leave for employees more than they support the President. After countless weekends vacationing at his many golf clubs, we hope this ad campaign let's Trump know - that even as he hides in Bedminster - he’s still not popular.”

UltraViolet claims that the President's job approval stands at 38%.  The most recent nationwide poll says otherwise.  Rasmussen Reports' daily presidential tracking poll puts Trump's national approval rating at 48%, and his monthly approval for April at 47%.  Rasmussen tracks presidential approval by polling daily.

According to a Gallup Poll from May 2016, 29% of Americans support abortion under any circumstances, 50% of Americans support abortion only under certain circumstances and 19% of Americans oppose abortion under any circumstances.

President Trump lost New Jersey and Somerset County in the 2016 General Election.  However, he won all four municipalities covered by TAPinto Somerset Hills.
