Tuesday’s daily tracking poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports shows continued support for President Trump.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 40% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -5.
Despite 24/7 media coverage that his detractors believe will hurt the president, it appears to be ‘baked in’ to the polling.
