President Trump’s Approval Rating at 48% Despite ‘Fake News’
President Donald Trump late Friday pointed out his latest approval rating is at 48 percent, tweeting that “despite the constant and intense fake news” his ratings are at a high point.
“Higher than Election Day and higher than President Obama,” President Trump said. “Rasmussen was one of the most accurate Election Day polls!”
The tweet appeared to have been posted in response to a Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll Friday, that showed 48% of likely voters approve of the president’s job performance, while 50% disapprove.
The poll showed that 35% of those questioned strongly approve of the way President Trump is performing, and 42% who strongly disapprove, giving him a presidential approval index rating of -7 points.
Rasmussen posts daily updates on Monday through Friday at 9:30a EDT.
He also posted a Tweet ridiculing ABC/Washington Post for a poll that he said was “by far the least accurate one 2 weeks out from the 2016 Election.”
“I call it a suppression poll – but by Election Day they brought us, out of shame, to about even,” he said. “They will never learn!”
Earlier Friday, the Washington Post/ABC News poll reported that just 36% of voters approved of President Trump’s performance, tying his all-time low mark. But it was learned later the ABC News poll canvased 75% Democrats, and n on registered voters, including Hispanics and Blacks.
President Donald Trump’s approval rating on 14 August was at 39%, according to a new Gallup poll.
The pollster’s weekly tracking of how voters rate the President’s job performance said 56% disapprove of the job he is doing in the White House.
The prior week, President Trump had a 41-54 approval rating. And as recently as of 17 June, he had a 45-50 rating.
The 39 percent approval in the latest poll is the lowest since 22 April 2018 when he recorded a 38% approval rating in the weekly survey.
Have a terrific holiday weekend
