MAGA: Trump Tops 50% Approval Rating

President Trump’s approval rating has hit 50% in the Rasmussen Reports daily presidential tracking poll.

His disapproval rating stands at 49%. “The latest figures include 33% who Strongly Approve of the way the president is performing and 39% who Strongly Disapprove,” Rasmussen reported.

That puts Trump’s overall job approval rating “ahead of where Barack Obama’s was at this stage of his presidency.”

On other topics, Rasmussen found that:

Just 15% of all voters think Congress is doing a good or excellent job. That’s par for the course in recent years. Most GOP voters want their party to follow Trump, not Senate Republicans.

Democrats and liberal activists are angry at the Trump administration for adding a citizenship question to the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census. But two-out-of-three Americans (66%) agree that the Census should ask respondents whether they are citizens of the United States. …

By a 54% to 33% margin, Americans believe the failure of government agencies to respond to numerous warning signs from the prospective killer is more to blame for the mass shooting in Florida than a lack of adequate gun control.

The poll was collected using telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. “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.”
