President Trump’s approval rating in some of the main day-to-day monitoring polls has advanced considerably and is now upper than President Barack Obama’s at the same date of his first time period.
The Rasmussen Reports day-to-day survey launched Thursday presentations that Mr. Trump’s approval rating is at 48 p.c, statistically tied along with his disapproval rating of 50 p.c.
Until past due ultimate week, his disapproval charge has been above 50 p.c on a daily basis for 10 months. But Thursday marked the 5th consecutive day his approval rating was once 48 p.c or 49 p.c, after now and again dipping into the 30s.
And this week’s Rasmussen numbers even best Mr. Obama’s similar figures.
On Feb. eight, 2010, Mr. Obama had a transparent majority disapproving of his efficiency as president — 54 p.c as opposed to simply 46 p.c approval.
That disparity raised the eyebrows of Thomas Lifson at the conservative weblog American Thinker.
“Given the overwhelmingly negative coverage President Trump has received (in the 90% negative range) and the overwhelmingly positive coverage President Obama enjoyed (remember the late night comedian who complained that there was nothing to joke about early in Obama’s presidency?), these approval polls reveal a public that has tuned out the mainstream media’s nattering against the president,” he wrote.
