Posted on 08/14/2017 7:22:58 PM PDT by Impala64ssa
President Donald Trump's approval rating stands at 45 percent a jump of six points from last week, according to the Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
On Aug. 4, 39 percent of those polled had said they approved of the job the president was doing, according to the survey. But Friday's approval rating is Trump's highest daily mark since July 12 when he also received a 45 percent favorable response, figures provided by Rasmussen reveal. Trump's highest approval rating is 59 percent recorded on Jan. 26 less than a week after he took the oath of office
The poll surveyed 1,500 people and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.

I would be interested to know the actual (if any) number if people polled in relationship to how many people inhabit the USA. Its probably one millionth of a percent.
Trump has been working this issue hard and suspect he has his own polls that show this is hurting him. There is turmoil in the country orchestrated by Trumps enemies and he has a tough battle on his hands.
I think this is why Charlottesville happened. We need to plot when Antifa activity happens against Trump’s ratings.
Add at least a 10 point handicap from all the fake news and leftist propaganda which I no longer listen to or watch. Mainstream DemoRat propaganda mill is like reading “Animal Farm”
If anything, he got a big boost, because he refused to jump through the MSM’s hoops and only condemn the right-wing thugs, and instead condemned both groups. That was a grand slam, and the MSM keeps trying to twist it around into an endorsement of the Klan, which it plainly is not. CNN remains the world’s most clueless straight guy.
Whaaaaaa? Trump has nothing to do with the protests, counter protests or drivers of alledgedly errant cars.
Where would the idea that Trump is being hurt by that situation come from? NBC? MSNBC?CBS?
I can tell you i usually get kicked out of polls once I check off that i strongly support Trump.
They are online polls.
Some are so left slanted i’m surprised i can see them on my screen :)
get a slightly right of center one every now and then too which is good.
Unbiased would be ideal for a poll.
Well, he has now re-spoke on the issue, and explicitly condemned the KKK, White Supremacists, and the Alt-Right.
WITHOUT also bringing up Soros, Antifa, and BLM.
I am very sorry he caved to the MSM barrage.
It’s understandable given the pressure, but he knuckled under in any case.
Calling all white people racist is one of the things that got Trump elected to begin with.
The media’s response to Charlottesville doesn’t hurt him. It helps him.
“...We need to plot when Antifa activity happens against Trump’s ratings...”
You are onto something here. And it is starting to come out that Jason Kessler, an organizer of the Charlottesville event is possibly a CNN reporter and a Wall Street Occupier who suddenly switched sides ...
hmmmm this looks like a possible trap set up to cause a riot to make our President look bad... add to that the various reports that the police were standing down.
[I think this is why Charlottesville happened.]
I totally agree and thought this same thing as it was happening... esp. the media’s reaction to it and their efforts to pin this on POTUS.
Pres. Trump was getting a significant ratings boost from NoKo. These scumbags may have successfully blunted that... for now.
“This poll was taken just before the events at Charlottesville, how much of a hit, if any did Pres. Trump take since then? IMO, nothing long term. “
Gallup had him down to 34%.
NO path to 270.
Sadly Trump is a republican that is being trashed in the polls because the RINOs in the fallen republican party are doing nothing in Congress, not fulfilling any of the promises the president made nor those they made to keep their offices. So, Mr. Trump gets bad grades because the sorry good for nothings in congress have screwed up everything they touch. They failed to get rid of Obammycare, thus Trump is held responsible by the people. Since he is head of the stinking RINO party, he is held responsible by a lot of people. Good for nothings in congress are worthless. Worthless to the American people.
All these polls are fake.
Why waste time talking about fake polls from the Fake Stream News.
They got the Election exactly right, Hillary by 2%
FOX is running with his number gone down to the low 30’s off Gallup, no surprise FOX is reporting that, and this is why I never have FOX anymore on my TV. One American News for this family
