The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President-elect Trumps job performance. Forty-four percent (44%) disapprove.
Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans and 55% of unaffiliated voters approve of the job Trump is doing. Seventy percent (70%) of Democrats disapprove.
The latest figures include 38% of all likely voters who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 36% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2 (see trends).
Why do the liberal media polls say he is below 50? People will continue to doubt honesty in the big media.
Because they lie.
In the wake of Brexit, the Italian vote, and the election of Donald Trump, if 2016 taught us anything about polls, it is that they are totally untrustworthy. So I refuse to believe polls whether or not they purport to show what I would interpret to be good news.
I was moved deeply, what a gracious and continous tradition of Liberty and Justice in the USA to see the arrival of Trumps and the Obamas standing on the red carpet. A Peaceful and quiet transition of power and taking command is a tribute to any culture. Thumbs up to both individuals for not resorting to bullets, deceit to subvert the tradition and process. The nations is blessed.
Like Arnold in the Simpsons movie, Trump was elected to lead, not to read. I suggest that we avoid the temptation to worry about polling until the midterms roll around. I would argue that Reagan we great not because he did what was popular, but because he did what was thought impossible and made it popular after the fact.
If you left out LA it would be in the mid 60%s
This is exactly opposite of what Fox News reported this morning. What gives???
Couldn’t agree more. The whole polling industry is in shambles, just like “journalism”, for a reason.
Like I said, I generally don’t trust polls. But most of the polls that have President-elect Trump under 50% are corrupt media polls, rigged by the fact that they don’t even screen for likely voters.
Media poll — Fox polls showed Trump had no path to 270. They’re basically junk, fake news.
And they include illegals.
Sorry the Congress members who decided not to attend gave the media something negative to talk about. I think they hurt their party by not attending. Voters will remember, even if they are not part of a particular voter’s district.
The Democrats want to rain on the Trump parade. We will see what it gets them? Not a very good strategy to whine and complain about anything. Now they totally lost real power!
It’s going to be really funny to see those polls skyrocket upward AS illegals are expelled.
It will completely undermine their anti-Trump meme.
Bingo! Just like Election Day. The only way Hillary “won the popular vote” is by excluding 49 states outside of California! Hillary is basically president of California LOL
Riight...do not trust polls and HE HAS NOT DONE THE JOB YET.
“if 2016 taught us anything about polls, it is that they are totally untrustworthy.”
They have morphed into just another propaganda element.
