Donald Trump has reached a new high in his poll. The Daily Wire reports:
Amid the constant storm of bad press, controversy and #resistance outrage, President Trump has seen his approval numbers climb — in fact, according to Rasmussen, he’s outpacing President Obama at the same stage in his presidency.
Rasmussen’s latest numbers from its daily tracking poll are the best Trump’s seen in a while. As of August 2, 50% of U.S. Voters approve of Trump’s job performance, while 49% disapprove.
Though he’s currently got the edge on overall approval, he’s still behind when it comes to those who feel “strongly” about his performance in office. “The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove,” Rasmussen reports. “This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6.”
Over the last month, Trump has been hovering between 44% to 48% approval. The 50% mark measured Thursday is the highest approval he’s attained since May 22.
While these numbers look promising, Barack Obama did not fare well in the 2010 midterms, where the Tea Party swept the House.
