Trump Hits 50% Approval Rating, Surpasses Obama At This Time In His Presidency

President Donald Trump's approval rating stands at 50 percent according to Rasmussen's daily presidential tracking poll released Monday morning - putting Trump ahead of Obama at the exact same point in his predecessor's presidency.

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:

Maybe Trump is being rated by the same social credit system the Chinese government is getting ready to roll out:…

The whole world is being set up to grade us as either socially acceptable or deplorables. Any guess where this is headed:

There she is. I was concerned for a second. It seemed as though you were going to miss a chance to rant on a pro Trump thread. Glad to see you survived the assault on your mental wiring and things are still as they should be.

If Agent Orange can somehow turn back the "Camp Of The Saints" invading Honduran/Mexican army of ne'er do wells, I'll bite and give him one tiny thumbs-up of approval.  Of course, that will not make up for the 99% broken promises that his billionairness vowed to we voting plebs.  The results of the added power that we gave him in his waning years of tycooness will be weighed on the true scales of justice.  Tick tock tick tock.

Oh you mean like the hush money of massive Obama subsidies and attempt at massive Keynesian stimulation by the dems and the Obama administration? It's all just different flavors of bullshit, in one LOOOOONG bubble economy brought on by easy money.

Lets be rational about those "Polls" shall we?

Polls stated that Hillary had 92% of the vote (high poll)

Polls stated that Trump had some mid 30% of the vote (high poll on his end)

In the end, Trump wins through electoral college by a landslide

Hillary wins the popular vote by a slim margin of what? 52 to 48?

what does that say about those polls being so GROSSLY off? (hint: they were polled in democratic counties)= skewed

The way the questions are asked is also important. Used to do surveys for a jury analyst firm. We'd call folks, give them the details of an upcoming lawsuit and then ask their opinion of various things. Then a similar set of questions were asked with a different spin or a new piece of information in order to see what presentation would work better to convince a jury.
