The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trumps job performance. Forty-five percent (45%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 39% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 37% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2. (see trends).

Given the choice of saving a rabid dog or an NSM vermin during a flood, the dog wins hands down.
For way too long (decades) the media was told that they were to "interpret and shape" the news. They began to believe that THEY determined policy.
Trump is now setting them straight!
When you consider that Trump gets ONLY negative MSM coverage this is amazing.
If Donald Trump found a cure for all the ills and diseases in society, the mass media would lead with the headline: Trump fires medical professionals.
The MSM would throw another tantrum. “What took him so long to cure all diseases?!?!?!” ;)
The dog has my vote too ;)
Exactly. Chuck Todd yesterday accused President Trump of “delegitimizing” the media. I had to laugh. No institution has done more to Delegitimize the media than the media itself. Todd beclowns himself with such rubbish.
It’s pure venom that comes over the airwaves and in print, 24/7. The public has tuned the media out and dismisses the press in general as completely discredited after having crowned crooked Hillary as the next president. As President Trump pointed out yesterday, that’s why no one believes the media anymore. Their credibility is shot full of holes, with no end in sight.
BTW, I'm not purposely following Trump. He just happened to schedule these appearances during my vacation. Very nice of him, I might add. I was passing through D.C. yesterday just as he was giving his press conference.
Anyway, I think the media have totally shot their wad and Americans are finally coming to realize that they are nothing but a bunch of Leftists who will lie and say anything to make the conservative look bad. I expect Trump to be north of 60 per cent favorable once he gets through this weekend of appearances, surrounded by thousands and thousands of real people who support him.
Yes, the dog can be cured
Oh please. Trump could push a baby carriage out of the path of a speeding bullet train and the media would find a way to spin it into child abuse.
Right. There’s always the chance of curing the dog.
Couldn’t agree more. The incessant attacks on Trump have only backfired on the media. They’re just too stupid to realize that, with Trump, they’re not dealing with your typical scripted politician. He’s completely rewritten the rules of politics — conventional wisdom is out the window — and the media just hates it that he’s keeping every single one of his campaign promises.
If Trump got the same treatment as Obama did, he’d have 90% approval ratings.
Thank you! This cannot be said nearly enough every time that the media complains. They have dug their own graves and The President is just dumping the dirt on them now.
No doubt about it.
I think that survey needs to be filled out as if you were a whacked out lefty. It’s so skewed to the left that any normal or God forbid, conservative responses would be obviously targeted. Just think if 100% got their news from MSNBC, etc. The higher the “success” of the lefty poll, the more obvious it is that it’s totally completed by the radical left. I’d stay away from it which in effect renders it useless.
Exactly. Trump’s Boeing trip today, MAGA rally on Saturday. It’s gonna be a long weekend for the hateful MSM.
schadenfreude is delicious .. mmm mmm mmm
Yum! Yum! ;)
Let the trauma surgeon do his work on America. MAGA!
The rabid dog certainly would foam at the mouth less.
The People know the Liberal Media is not to be trusted. The Liberal Media’s power was to appear objective while subjectively reporting the news. This past election campaign exposed them as frauds and they can’t undo that exposure. That drives them crazy.
I’d like to see where that number is in a couple of days after that presser sinks in with people. I bet he gains a couple just off that performance.
Meet the Press host Chuck Todd on Thursday slammed President Trumps efforts to delegitimize the media as un-American.
Chuck, honey, the “press” delegitimized” itself by its MASSIVE propaganda effort to elect Hillary and its subsequent propaganda effort to destroy President Trump, an effort that’s spun so far our of control that the media now pretty much just publishes nothing but rumors, rumors which are dressed up in “anonymous sources” tuxedos to try to trick the public into thinking they are reading actual “news”.
And all that President Trump has done is voice what we-the-people know and say amongst ourselves about the evil known as the American media. And, Chuck, how could President Trump merely voicing our sentiment have any actual impact on the media if in fact the media was actually “legitimate” and respected by the people?
Steve Bannon was right when he said the media is the true opposition party, given that the Democrat party is nearly moribund at the moment, wandering about in the desert, running out of water, and clueless as to what direction to take to escape.
But it ain’t working,Chuck. The American people are not stupid like you and the rest of the media believe we are, which is why your propaganda is failing and why the media have approval ratings worse than Congress.
So, Chuck, I exhort you and your fellow presstitutes to keep up your chorus of whining: it’s music to our ears.
Between putting the media in it’s place yesterday, and setting up these rallies, DJT is totally baiting the left. Tis a joy to watch.
I can’t believe what a backstabbing mutt this John McCain is, bashing Trump while giving a speech in Germany. Can Trump kick this guy out of the party? Sometimes I don’t know who is more leftist: McCain or Pelosi, it’s unreal.
