Trump's Approval Rating Back To 50% In New Poll


U.S. President's overall approval rating is back in the 50 percentage range for the first time in nearly a month.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50 percent of Likely U.S. voters approve of Donald Trump's job performance. The rest of the voters disapprove.

Just after his inauguration in January, Trump's job approval peaked at 59 percent and remained in the 50s every day until early March. It's gone as low as 42 percent since then.

His predecessor's approval rating was comparatively better. Barack Obama had 67 percent approval rate on the day he was sworn in for the first term, and has gone down to 55 percent three months later.

His approval rating remained below 50 percent for several months in both the first and second terms, before showing an upward trend in the final few months to close at 62 percent when his second term came to end.

The latest figures for Trump include 30 percent who strongly approve of the way Trump is performing and 39 percent who strongly disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9.
