Rasmussen: 50 Percent Of Likely Voters Give Trump The Thumbs Up

Rasmussen: 50 Percent Of Likely Voters Give Trump The Thumbs Up

But on June 16, 2009, then-President Obama had a 56% approval rating under the same poll.

"Sound of the atom splitting. coming from Rasmussen, most accurate poll of '16", Drudge wrote to his 512,000 followers. Ted Cruz was the home state candidate - and Trump won the state by a smaller, 9-point margin than recent Republican nominees, Henson said one might presume his support is softer in Texas than elsewhere and one would detect if he were having trouble with the base earlier in Texas than elsewhere. This equates to a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11, according to Rasmussen Reports. The surge in Trump's approval rating appears to be the sharpest increase of his short time in office.

Trump also faces disapproval in some key policy areas.

As for Rasmussen's veracity, as Newsweek noted Saturday, it was indeed the closest to predicting the final result of the 2016 election.

President Trump cited right-leaning Rasmussen Reports in a tweet on Sunday while discussing his approval rating.




A survey from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research published last week reported one of the lowest Trump approval ratings to date, finding American favorability of the president's job performance at 35 percent.

Where 39 percent of voters have favorable views of the Affordable Care Act, only 20 percent have similar views of the American Health Care Act, which passed the House in May. And among Democrats, 90 percent disapprove.

Sekulow said Trump "is not and has not been under investigation".

In the past week, Trump has concentrated on blasting the ongoing federal investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether his campaign was involved, a probe that has reportedly expanded to examine whether he attempted to obstruct justice.

Trump's approval rating has steadily declined during his challenging first months in the White House. The order increases by double the funding for apprenticeship grants to $200 million by reallocating money from existing job-training programs.
