TRUMP BUMP: The President’s Approval Rating POPS to 50%

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.02.18

President Trump’s daily approval rating popped to 50% this week following a series of strong economic reports and a raucous rally in Tampa, Florida; spiking to its highest level in months.

The new survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports shows the Commander-in-Chief’s poll numbers on the rise after the US GDP rose a stunning 4.1% in the second quarter of 2018.

“The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6,” writes the report.

Trump’s healthy approval rating throws more cold-water on the media’s over-hyped “blue wave” predicted for this fall, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowing to repeal the widely popular GOP tax cuts should the Democrats retake control of Congress.
