President Donald Trump’s approval rating shot up to 50 percent on Monday, according to the latest poll from Rasmussen Reports.
Here’s a comparison of Trump and former President Barack Obama’s approval numbers:
It’s been quite the climb for Trump in the approval ratings department after he hit a low of 38 percent in August of 2017. However, with the booming economy and foreign policy gains, it seems voters are warming to the Republican’s policies.
Many of Trump’s high-profile diehard supporters, from Sean Hannity to Roseanne Barr, have not seemed to waver in their support, seemingly separating the president’s past personal life and his performance as commander-in-chief.
Rasmussen Reports has more context:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 33% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6.
The numbers have to come as something of a shock for Democrats who have been going all-in on allegations of “collusion” between the president and Russia. Many Democrats have even floated the idea of impeachment, despite providing no concrete evidence so far of wrongdoing.
