Trump’s latest approval rating hits 48%


Like him or not, but President Trump is sitting in the White House and his approval rating is sky high.

Well, that depends on which public opinion poll you want to believe.

The latest Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll shows Trump with a 48% approval rating of Likely U.S. Voters, and a 52% disapproving rating of his job performance.

48% is pretty high, but according to CNN, ABC, Washington, Post, and a few other polls, Trump approval ratings are hovering in the mid-30’s, while a couple of these polls showing him at around 37-38%.

Some statisticians believe that in order for Republicans to retain the U.S. House of Representatives, Trump’s approval ratings need to be in the low-to-mid 40’s.

But how credible are all these polls?

Remember, people change their minds on a moment’s notice, and the business of politics is so fluid, that one issue could tip the balance of power in the congress.

Take for instance the economy. The economy is the one issue that matters to all Americans, regardless of political affiliation.

The latest jobs numbers are up, exceeding expectations, and the unemployment rate among Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities is down to historic levels.

All these factors should be considered to be positives for any administration, but the Trump administration isn’t just any administration.

Trump has broken the mold, and the media and his detractors appear poised to make the next two elections about the persona in the oval office, and not about the issues that matter most to Americans.

A lot can change with less than two months before the 2018 midterm elections. A lot.
