Multiple past presidents have had approval ratings above 70 per cent in their first term (George W Bush, John F Kennedy, Jimmy Carter) and Trump’s 50 per cent rating comes from only pollster – Rasmussen Reports.
Other polls from the last week have put Trump at 42 per cent (YouGov) or 45 per cent (HarrisX).
More importantly, the Rasmussen polls have consistently been an outlier in showing support for Trump, generally putting him between 45-50 per cent approval while polls on average put him at just 42 per cent approval.
So okay, maybe the poll is good relatively for Trump… but it’s not a good rating.
Find someone who loves you as much as Donald Trump loves mediocre poll numbers from a single, sympathetic pollster https://t.co/lTD2hHx8jX
