That's the good news for Trump. The bad news is 49 percent of the public disapprove – 39 percent strongly. On the flip side, 33 percent of Trump's support is also strong. That gives Trump overall, according to Rasmussen, an approval index of -6.
Rasmussen Reports is now the only nationally recognized public opinion firm that still tracks President Trump's job approval ratings on a daily basis.
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. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Platinum Members.
