Rasmussen: Trump Approval at 50%

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Let's remember back to the 2016 Presidential Election polls . . . all of them had Hillary Clinton winning by a landslide.  Only one predicted Trump would win.  Rasmussen, of the polls who claimed Hillary Clinton would likely win, had her winning by the slimmest margin.  In other words, Rasmussen was more accurate than all of the other major polls except one.

So, before the usual talking knuckleheads slam me for using Rasmussen regarding Trump's approval rating, while I believe polls tend to always be skewed in a leftist direction, of the polls out there, I trust Rasmussen the most.

That said, here's the latest:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
This is the president’s highest job approval rating since mid-June of last year. President Obama earned 45% approval on this date in the second year of his presidency.

Tax Reform, and his reaction to the Florida Shooting, likely are the two primary causes.

The more the Democrats try to make him look bad, the more Trump continues to keep winning.

While not perfect, Trump has been a breath of fresh air we have not experienced since Ronald Reagan.  Last century we only had two Presidents who stayed within the realm of the U.S. Constitution - Reagan and Calvin Coolidge.  Thank God we got another one early in the 21st Century.  That said, the enemies of the Constitution are not defeated, they are continuing to regroup.

The 2018 Mid-Term Elections are all out war, for them.
