The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trumps job performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 28% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 43% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. (see trends).
Two-out-of-the-three nights in the latest survey follow the presidents decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

It would just kill these “pollsters” to report the real, honest figures....LOL
As the Houses plan to revamp Obamacare moves to the Senate, most voters continue to agree that the health care law needs to be changed. But support for a single-payer health care system where the government provides coverage for everyone is up to a new high, even though voters admit that it will push up costs and lower the quality of care.After reading that (its on the same page), I of course concur with what you said. (Well, I did even before I read that.)
I read that as ‘CANING’..................
I imagine some percentage of “disapprove” includes those who feel Trump hasn’t been sufficiently Trumpian. The remainder is mostly those who will still hate him even he were to cure cancer, end poverty, and beat swords into plowshares. So if he wants to be more popular, he need only be himself.
Don’t tell that to Charlie Rose, he almost had a heart attack berating Hucksters daughter this morning. And their White House correspondent has the permanent case of constipation all over her face.
Voters showing appreciation for his draining the swamp. Comey was a YUGE swamp creature.
Buy popcorn stocks! ;)
That’s why people have tuned the MSM out. They lost whatever shred of credibility they still had when they coronated crooked Hillary before voters even had a chance to weigh in LOL
The pollsters, the media and the entertainment industry all babble on, barking in the night - but the caravan to make America great again rolls along.
.... Why is it that every time a story about stating that Trump’s approval rating has risen ... The article always says that it’s risen to 48% where it always seems to stay?
Most of us wondered why Comey was not fired immediately after Trump took office. I am just wondering how many of those paying attention to his behavior as head of the FBI, a very crucial job in this country, in the Clinton matter, with any trust in him.
There used to be money to be made owning newspapers and television stations.
Now, papers like NYT and other cities, some are purchased for their real estate holdings.
Not a lot of money in it.
For the remainder, there is no income producing reason for owning “old media” companies except to use them for propanda, to further business interests. That is why we must examine freedom of the press vs freedom of market/public relations/propaganda.
Why did Bezos buy WAPO, Carlos Slim=NYT or Adelson=Las Vegas Review. Not because they generate profits. Plus you can buy them extremely cheap.
Sorry. I meant to say, “came away with any trust in him.”
If the poll me, I’ll vote twice (or all I can).
It was 46% before Comey’s firing. The pundits predicted Trump’s support would collapse (wrong again)
Does anyone think Comeyâs recent testimony was bizarre? A co-worker who voted for HRC and detests Trump was honest enough to reply when I asked him, âI’ve avoided talking politics since months before the election, but I am curious about what you thought about Comeyâs testimony. The word that came to my mind was, âweirdââ. He said he had the exact same reaction. That’s what makes me think all the hysteria from Hollywood and the media will blow over. Comey just did not comport himself the way 90% of the public would expect of the head of the FBI.
