President Donald Trump has come a long way in his general approval numbers. Even though he won the election against Hillary Clinton, his early numbers (if you believe the polls) were not great.
But after he started to literally fulfill his biggest promise of making America great again (which he has in spades), his numbers skyrocketed. Even Democrats are jumping on board.
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.
Below are all of Trump’s numbers for the last two weeks:
By comparison, at the same stage in his presidency, Obama, who had far more sympathetic media coverage, was at 45% approval and 54% disapproval.
Below are Obama’s numbers for the same period, which range from 43% to 47% approval:
While Rasmussen found Trump tracking quite well, Real Clear Politics’ average is a little less sunny: Trump currently sits at 43.5% approval and 52.8% disapproval in RCP’s average of national polls. While that approval number isn’t great, it’s a significant improvement from eight months ago, when he dropped to an abysmal 37% approval.
