Approval Numbers Increase for Trump

Jun 19, 2017

President Trump’s approval numbers are at 50 percent according to the Rasmussen presidential daily tracking poll. Half the country approves of President Trump and the other half disapproves. A driving factor behind the poll is that voter optimism with the economy is soaring. At least 61 percent of likely voters think the American economy is in fair condition. When the economy is doing well, it tends to reflect well on the president in power. When President Trump took office in January, his approval ratings hit a high of 59 percent. In April his rating hit a low of 42 percent.
