Despite weeks of non-stop press coverage surrounding President Trump’s alleged “collusion” with Russian officials, new polling shows the Commander-in-Chief’s approval rating hovering at a healthy 50%.
“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove,” writes Rasmussen.
President Obama garnered a 47% approval rating at the same point in his presidency.
The President’s support comes as strong economic data suggests a soaring US economy, while Trump also earned high praise for his decisive strike against Syria following a deadly chemical weapons attack.
The numbers also raise serious questions for Democrats heading into the 2018 midterms, with Republicans erasing large liberal gains in recent weeks as both parties struggle for control of Congress.
