I like the Rasmussen tracking poll because it gives us a trend. The latest from Rasmussen:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 32% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7.
Policies and stories ahead that could impact this approval either way: summit with North Korea, revelations about porn star payment, economic growth, and whether or not we’ll have an ill-advised trade war. It’s anyone’s guess where the approval/disapproval will go.
