This despite the 24/7 attacks by every element of the establishment. While the midterm elections are unpredictable, the president enjoying what is likely over 50% approval will help GOP candidates who understand the benefit of supporting the president. In the meantime, Congress has just a 15% approval rating, also via Rasmussen.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 33% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6. (see trends).
Trump’s overall job approval rating is now running ahead of where Barack Obama’s was at this stage of his presidency.
