If you listened to the media, you’d think that everyone was opposed to Donald Trump and everything he has done since taking office.
But if you at the polling on Trump’s approval rating and for the policies he’s done thus far, you will find a huge majority of people approve.
The most popular policies have to do with illegal immigration, squashing regulation, and ending Obamacare. Even the majority of Hispanics agree with Trump’s immigration policies according to one poll.
Even bigger news is Trump’s overall approval rating, which is at 55% right now.
Rasmussen was one of the few polls that showed Trump and Hillary polling within the margin of error before the election. On the day before the election, they had Hillary ahead by two points, but a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percent. So unlike other biased polling outlets, Rasmussen wasn’t totally blindsided by Trump’s victory.
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).
The Rasmussen poll is in line with what we’d expect Trump’s net favorability to be, given how he polls on individual issues.
