Trump approval rating 4/2/18 — 50%
Trump last hit a 50% approval rating on February 27, as he had been hovering around the 47-50 percent range.
As the Daily Caller's Saagar Enjeti notes, a CNN poll found that Trump's approval rating is at an 11-month high of 42 percent, which was in line with results from the Associated Press.
Methodology via Rasmussen; "Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence."
Trump's base is predictably pleased with the results:
