The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-one percent (41%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 44% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 31% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +13 (see trends).
So now, all of a sudden, polls are credible?
I mean, hasn’t most every resident Trump lickers here defended the least popular president in history because the election polls proved false and therefore his popularity polls were irrelevant? What happened to that?
Rasmussen? LOL Why not an internal White House poll?
Even assuming the laughing stock Rasmussen had merit, where else could this bottomed out serial lying con man go but up?
I will give his groomers credit in polishing the turd.
@Ajay42302: Polls don’t matter. I think the election proved that pollsters can get whatever results they seek.
The Trump victory was an upset and an unexpected occurrence. Las Vegas gambled on a Hillary victory and lost. Dismissing Vegas as ignorant on odds would be foolish.
Point is, reputable pollsters are generally correct albeit there are manipulative variables that come into play. Perhaps like the weatherman, they can get it wrong but quite often you really should take their advice in taking your umbrella or you may end up in a predicament.
Dr John and his rabid right merry-men like to have it both ways and prefer to cherry pick to create some nonsensical logic to advance their rather unhinged agenda.
Rasmussen has not only been historically right leaning but has seriously tanked in credibility over the past few years.
President Obama’s Average Approval Rating Was Worse Than Nixon’s
President Barack Obama had an average approval rating of 47.9% during his time in office, according to the Gallup poll. That puts him behind Richard Nixon, who resigned, and George W. Bush, who saw his approval rating drop as low as 25% near the end of his term.
Trump’s current job approval average is only 42%. Over 49% disapprove.
@Ajay42302: You do know that Rasmussen was the only major poll that said Trump would win? Uh….don’t you?
