A new poll conducted by Rasmussen has President Trump’s job approval rating at 51 percent.
According to The Daily Caller:
Fifty-one percent of people approve of President Donald Trump’s performance as president, according to a poll from Rasmussen Reports released Monday.
The survey company’s Presidential Tracking Poll said that 47% of people disapprove of his job performance.
The survey also shows the divide between the 40% of those indicating they strongly approve of Trump’s job performance and the 41% who strongly disapprove. “This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -1,” according to the pollsters.
Recently, a series of polls indicated Trump is trailing presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. A Rasmussen poll released July 29 showed that Biden was leading Trump by 48% to 42% in voter support. The current RealClear Politics average of polling has Biden with a 7.4% lead over Trump.
Mid-July polls by Rasmussen had the company declaring Trump was back in the race with Biden at 47% and Trump at 44% while another poll showed that 54% of people didn’t think Biden could effectively debate Trump.
