Trump Celebrates Approval Rating Higher Than When He Won The Election
approval rating sourced 49 percent following his state of the Union address
President Donald Trump cited a new poll figure on Saturday morning claiming his presidential approval rating is high than when he won the election in 2016.
The Presidents approval rating sourced 49 percent following his state of the Union address and the FISA memo release according to the conservative-leaning Rasmussen report. An estimated 75 percent of viewers approved his speech according to a CBS poll.
“Rasmussen just announced that my approval rating jumped to 49%, a far better number than I had in winning the Election,” Trump tweeted
The DailyCaller reports: The president has traditionally relied on the Rasmussen reports, which tend to provide figures higher than some other polls, to gauge his performance. The latest Gallup poll, which was taken prior to the State of the Union address, has the president’s approval rating at 38 percent. Overall, Trump’s approval rating has been on a downward trend since he took office last year.
Rasmussen just announced that my approval rating jumped to 49%, a far better number than I had in winning the Election, and higher than certain “sacred cows.” Other Trump polls are way up also. So why does the media refuse to write this? Oh well, someday!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2018
Friday’s Rasmussen report indicates that record low unemployment rates, a booming stock market, and faith that the president will try to keep the promises made in his State of the Union address are contributing to improvements in Trump’s approval rating.
