As we knew all along, Trump is wildly popular with real Americans. And these are the “official numbers” they publish, so you know the real numbers are probably MUCH higher.
Kind of like election day. You remember that? Even the morning of the election, all the news outlets were saying Trump only had a 5% chance of winning.
So yeah, I’m not real impressed with your “official numbers”.
But I do take notice when they publish results like this, because it means the number is probably so high that they can’t keep it so low and still keep any shred of credibility.
The new report:
From Rasmussen, here's the new report:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 30% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 44% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14. (see trends)

The government jobs report for October showed the hurricane-hit U.S. economy rebounding strongly, with the unemployment rate down now to 4.1%, the lowest level since 2000. We’ll tell you at 10:30 how Americans view the job market these days.
Economic confidence remains high. The latest Rasmussen Reports Consumer Spending Updateshows that Americans are ready to spend for the holidays.
Interestingly, however, while all these indicators have been rising since Trump’s election, voters are evenly divided over whether the economic boom is due to the new president or his predecessor, Barack Obama.
