52% Approval rating


#144

Eleven points below Obama. I’ll bet that stings.


#145

If his rating is 40.1% among all and 43% among likely voters, that means his net positive rating is 2.9%, right?

Right???


#146

Ha! It would not surprise me at all if that’s what someone in the White House tells him.


#147

Down to 47% on Ras today. Oh noes!


#148

Well, there are Conservative statistics(that still have honor, and people trust them), and then there are Liberal Statistics(that have lied time and time again for political gain, and their trust levels have gone way down). The same Liberal Statistics that said Trump had 0 chance of going any where in the primary election of the Republicans in 2016 Presidential race. Then once he won, they said Hillary would crush him.


#149

This thread is about Rasmussen.


#150

You mean the poll that has him at 45% today?


#151

I actually believed they had him at 45% going back to last week.

But it’s definitely fake until it gets back to about 50


#152

you’re correct. 45% Friday and Today.


#153

Nothing because they compensate for it like this

from http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/about_us/methodology

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.

After the surveys are completed, the raw data is processed through a weighting program to ensure that the sample reflects the overall population in terms of age, race, gender, political party, and other factors. The processing step is required because different segments of the population answer the phone in different ways. For example, women answer the phone more than men, older people are home more and answer more than younger people, and rural residents typically answer the phone more frequently than urban residents.

Approval rising…

" Fifty-eight percent of respondents approve of President Donald Trump’s job on the economy, according to a Georgetown University poll released Wednesday.

That number is slightly higher than the president’s overall approval rating of 55%. And 38% disapprove of the job Trump is doing with respect to the economy. Also, 57% approve of the job Trump is doing on jobs, one of Trump’s key campaign issues."


#155

If it was 2%, I wonder who would have posted it.

Between you two I mean.


#156

Nope, another outlier.

His average approval rating is 43%.


#157

I bet they averaged in old polls before the conclusion was no collusion…


#158

I bet you’re right. The real polls have him at 75% approval.


#159

43%? That’s astounding!


#160

Did you look at the polls or is this another interpretation based on feels?


#161

The Realclearpolitics average is between 43% to 44%. Nice try. Outliners don’t count.


#162

Historically, an approval rating in the high 40s or better is needed for an incumbent president to win re-election. I guess we’ll see where he is a year from now.


#163

We will see what happens in November.

Unlike other Presidents, Trump approval/disapproval ratings have been relatively stable. On the approval side, he’s veered anywhere between 38% to 45%, and his disapproval side has veered anywhere in the 50-55% range.

He was able to win the electoral college by a somewhat comfortable margin because his opponent also had high negatives. If the Democrats put forth a candidate, people actually like, then Trump’s 2020 bid is going to be problematic.

Losing the house was a big negative for Trump’s 20-20 chances.

And you’re 100% correct that his approval ratings or lack of, is a big problem for him. If he were to win re-election, it would be a historic first.
