Trump Approval Rating Smashes Obama's
 
A new poll by Rasmussen shows Trump's approval rating at 50%. This is higher than Obama's 45% at the same point in his presidency.

According to Town Hall:

Amid the constant storm of bad press, controversy and #resistance outrage, President Trump has seen his approval numbers climb — in fact, according to Rasmussen, he's outpacing President Obama at the same stage in his presidency.

Rasmussen's latest numbers from its daily tracking poll are the best Trump's seen in a while. As of August 2, 50% of U.S. Voters approve of Trump's job performance, while 49% disapprove.

Though he's currently got the edge on overall approval, he's still behind when it comes to those who feel "strongly" about his performance in office. "The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove," Rasmussen reports. "This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6."

Over the last month, Trump has been hovering between 44% to 48% approval. The 50% mark measured Thursday is the highest approval he's attained since May 22.

Trump's numbers are better than Obama's despite the media coverage being much more favorable for Obama than Trump.
