Despite all of this bad news President Trump holds a 48% approval rating today in the Rasmussen daily tracking. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 34% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8.

President Trump has a stronger approval rating today than media darling Barack Obama did back in 2010 on this same day. Back on February 7, 2010 Barack Obama had an approval rating of 44% while 56% of likely voters disapproved of the far left president.

Trump had a tremendous first year despite an unbelievable barrage of attacks against him.

Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.

Do any of these pollsters bother asking what it is, specifically, that they disapprove of? If the respondent cannot give a concise, factual answer, they should be discounted from the poll.

They can give a concise factual answer easily, they disapprove of the fact that he is not a democrat. They will approve of anything he has done if you make them think that Obama did it.

Obama lost Congress that year.
Trump needs more popularity to prevent this I think.

I don’t think the job approval ratings ever ask any specifics, do they? It’s just do you approve of this person or not?
