Posted on 03/20/2017 8:46:14 AM PDT by Sidebar Moderator
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trumps job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7. (see trends).

There seems to be a great discrepancy.
I are confused.
But the NY Post says the President’s numbers are in “free fall,” setting a 70 yr record low of 37%! That is quite a spread ..
I guess we're going to have to decide for ourselves what the truth is. We sure aren't going to find it in the "polls".
The Devil is in the details.................
What an improvement!
Just 30 minutes ago his numbers were in a free fall.
I think it has a lot to do with how phrases the question using modern propaganda tactics. They usually get the answer they are seeking by the way they set up the question.
I could have sworn I saw on this very site!! that he had approval ratings in the single digits :)
Nah, it was like 37 percent.
Some polls are about as accurate as they were about the elections :)
Trump needs to expose the 400 members of the Journolist to the public.
It only got “disbanded” in 2010 after it was discovered.
It is still active but under a different name.
Rasmussen nailed the 2016 presidential race.
Gallup has been garbage for over a decade now.
It depends who you poll. If you poll mostly democrats, not only is Trump’s approval low, but Hillary still may win!
Now we know why Gallup got out of the Presidential polling business sometime ago.
guess we're going to have to decide for ourselves what the truth is.
We sure aren't going to find it in the "polls".
Saw another poll in the last week with Trump over 50%.
It would be 60% if he’d stand staunchly behind his Obamacare promise.
But. . . but. . . but Gallup says Trump’s approval has dropped to 38%.
LOL. That’s a keeper.
Rasmussen polls “likely voters.”
Gallup polls everyone, including illegals, jihadists and dead people.
Polls like Gallup, Fox and CNN have no credibility because they still use legacy live operators rather than the new technology, which was much closer to the mark on election day. Another problem is pollsters tend to oversample metropolitan areas, and undersample rural and exurb communities. That’s why they never saw the tsunami on November 8 coming.
...There seems to be a great discrepancy.
I are confused....
So Were the polls before November 8th.
I wonder how Hillary is polling is she still winning?
I agree. Although I still watch FOX off and on, it is my opinion that the FOX polls are the wackiest of them all. I haven’t a clue who it is they are polling. Their “polls” are insane.
Well, she did “win” Second Place. Heh.
But but but our good friends at Gallup say it is 37% and our even better friend Mattie Drudge plastered that “news” on his page. Thanks Mattie - anymore scoops?
Your post suggests we haven’t learned ANY DAMNED THING about polling in the last election!
Polls smolls i say.
Gallup’s horse race polls were so bad, they got out of the horse race polling business altogether LOL
Morning Consult, People’s Pundit Daily both have him over 50
CNN said 90% of American people are against deportation. Ann Coulter had a nice retort regarding the violence scaring people from saying they are for.
All I know is the a$$hole Starbuck CEO is getting kicked out for his political statements on the matter
Wacky, indeed. They had Kerry winning by 5 points LOL
Hillary has it locked up.
All the polls say so..
Gallup: “Do you approve of President Trump’s performance, knowing that he is planning to cut off medical care and food to Granny?”
FWIW, the evil NYT’s automated map/poll the evening of Nov. 8 was right on the money. Was hovering at about 300 EV at 11 pm that night.
Day after day of the media attacking my President... the man I voted for... and I take, personally, the attacks from the left, the libs, the dems, the repubs and the media.... there is not enough time left on this earth, to ever forget what they have done and the lies told, and the fact they hate the man I, and many others, voted for... stood with.. defended... have faith in...
And the media has sealed their fate with me, it’s over!! for they considered their own hide, their own power.. their own wealth.. in place of the restoration of our country. I don’t understand people like that... I don’t understand them at all!! and they are worse than dirt.. they have a goal in mind that does not include anyone but THEM... and obama is included in all the above.. How can he do this... because he’s a snake... and so are those who have helped him become what he is today!
This is a poll of likely voters.
Who believes these fake polls?
Bogus. His numbers are higher.
The same efforts used to prop up President Obama are now focused on destroying President Trump.
The Media is composed of 98% Democrats and Liberals and the remaining 2% are Liars.
Haven’t we all learned by now that polls are lies used by the media to manipulate public opinion? They also serve a secondary purpose, which is to provide cover for whichever way the media wants to report on a president or candidate. Polls about Democrats go positive. Polls about Republicans go negative. So it’s best to ignore all polls because they are worthless.
If I had to guess, I’d say at least 10 points higher. Trump always under performs in every poll. The reason being you can’t quantify enthusiasm.
Gallup today shows Trump rebounding to 39% Will probably be in the 40s again tomorrow is my guess.
