Poll:Trump approval @ 55%

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-five percent (45%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 36% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2. (see trends).

Regular updates are posted Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

Questions are growing about the source of top-secret information leaked to the media to hurt the Trump administration. A plurality (47%) of voters believe America’s intelligence agencies have their own political agenda.

Nearly half (48%) also believe most reporters are biased against the president.   Only 12% think they are biased for Trump, while 31% feel most reporters try to be fair and balanced. Needless to say, Republicans and Democrats strongly disagree in their assessments of the media.

While the president’s refugee freeze is tied up in the courts, the State Department has sped up acceptance of newcomers from the Middle Eastern terrorist havens targeted by the freeze. Most voters think that’s making America less safe.

How aggressively do voters want to deport those who overstay their visas here. We’ll tell you at 10:30.

Most voters support Trump’s plan to halt refugees and visas from certain countries until these newcomers can be properly vetted to screen out potential terrorist

The president feels strongly that federal government overregulation is hurting the economy and has signed an executive order mandating that every time a government agency adds a regulation, it needs to cut two others. Most Republicans approve of Trump’s two-for-one deregulation plan; most Democrats don't.

But voters have long felt that Wall Street got off lightly after the economic meltdown in September 2008. This helps explain why voters, including Republicans, favor more government regulation of the U.S. financial system.

Hillary Clinton recently declared that "the future is female." Thirty-six percent (36%) of women (36%) agree, compared to 28% of men.

Some readers wonder how we come up with our job approval ratings for the president since they often don’t show as dramatic a change as some other pollsters do. It depends on how you ask the question and whom you ask.

To get a sense of longer-term job approval trends for the president, Rasmussen Reports compiles our tracking data on a full month-by-month basis.

Rasmussen Reports has been a pioneer in the use of automated telephone polling techniques, but many other firms still utilize their own operator-assisted technology (see methodology).

Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Platinum Members.

Gallup has him in the 40-45% range most weeks.

The MSM, Hollywood, and a few thousand raving lunatics do not represent America. Wait until after tax cuts and in 6 months when people have 15% ytd in their retirement portfolio, then well see what a fringe the anti-president people really are.

This wasn't CNN bro:)

It's pretty remarkable considering the propaganda being used against him by every public figure imaginable

FiveThirtyEight has them rated better than Rasmussen.

if the polls are accurate (if) the constant narrative in the media and Hollywood is not serving the left well. Which is what many people on the right have been saying .

Rasmussen is fake news. Clearly leans very right. Gallup is the only poll that matters.

538 is Nate bronze...guys a fake pollster.

But we need to be looking at multiple sources to get a better idea of the truth.

That must be driving them crazy that they aren't able to herd the public in the direction they want and they just keep trying harder and harder to do it.

The statistics on poll quality were done based on historic data and results.

You are somehow trying to relate that to a prediction. Totally different things. And if I recall correctly, he had a pretty impressive run of predictions prior to that.

Absolutely nobody gets it right all the time in the world of predictions. Just because a baseball player hits .250 and he got a hit in his last at bat does not mean he is automatically doing to be out on the next 3 at bats.


You do understand the difference, right?

And if that doesn't happen I'm sure you'll be back here posting about eating crow right?
