You wouldn’t know it from watching or reading the mainstream media, but President Trump’s approval rating as he nears the end of his first year in office is virtually tied with that of former president Barack Obama’s at the same time in his first term.
On Dec. 29, 2009, 46% of voters approved of the job Obama was doing, while 53% disapproved. For Trump the numbers are 45-53, according to the Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll.
“The Rasmussen poll is somewhat of an outlier, though,” Politico reported. “Of the 12 polls that go into the RealClearPolitics polling average of the president’s approval rating, the 46 percent in Rasmussen’s poll was the highest score Trump earned, 3 points better than his next best score.
“Overall, the RealClearPolitics polling average shows Trump with a 39.3 percent approval rating and a 56.2 disapproval rating, historically poor numbers for a president at this point in his first term. Obama, in late December of his first year in office, had an average approval rating of 49.9 percent, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average, and a disapproval rating of 44.5 percent.”
