President Trump’s approval rating continued its upward trajectory in recent days; reaching over 51% after months of strong economic statistics, a diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea, and a renewed push for comprehensive immigration reform.
According to a recent survey, the President’s job approval rating popped to 51% Tuesday, with 48% disapproving of Trump’s performance.
“The latest figures include 33% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 38% who Strongly Disapprove,” writes Rasmussen. “This is the president’s best overall job approval rating since April of last year. President Obama earned a 46% job approval rating on April 4, 2010, his second year in office.”
The GOP and President Trump have largely erased strong Democratic gains in recent months after the left-wing legislators failed to secure a highly-anticipated deal on the nation’s ‘Dreamers’ and refused to fund President Trump’s signature campaign promise: The border wall.
