    Trump's Approval Rating Just Bounced Back From Worst In History for a President

    Trump's Approval Rating Just Bounced Back From Worst In History for a President

    By Harriet Sinclair On 9/10/17 at 12:08 PM

    Donald Trump has seen his approval rating rise in recent weeks, with a new poll showing the president is enjoying his highest such rating since June.

    According to a Rasmussen Reports poll released on September 10, Trump currently has a 46% approval rating, with 29% of likely voters polled stating they strongly approved of his performance.

    This is compared to 53% of likely voters who disapprove of the presidentís job performance, of whom 45% strongly disapprove of Trumpís performance, meaning the president has a Presidential Approval Index of -16.

    The most recent poll is a turnaround from just several months ago when Trump set a record low for second-quarter presidential job approval rating in modern polling history.

    Indeed, a Gallup poll taken between April 20 and July 19, and published on July 23, showed Trump had an average 38.8% approval rating, which was below his first-quarter poll results that showed a 41.3% average and was much lower than the historical average presidential second-quarter rating of 62%.

    The results in July put Trump in the position of least popular president in history, at that particular point during his term, with the new poll from Rasmussen marking a much-needed bump in approval for the president.

    At the time the July poll was released, Trump suggested he did not put much stock in polls, stating in a tweet that the poll in question was inaccurate, and citing pre-election polling that heavily suggested his rival Hillary Clinton was likely to win the 2016 election.

    Trumpís approval rating among his own base also took a battering following the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville and the presidentís much-criticized response to the incident.

    A Morning Consult/Politico poll published in August showed a drop in Trumpís approval rating among Republicans, with just 72% stating they approved of the presidentís job performance, compared to 81% the week prior to Charlottesville.

    They didn't say what caused this.

    I don't believe the drop was caused by his reaction to Charlottesville. What was wrong with his condemning violence on both sides?

    That was the media's take on it -

    Probably from being vocal for Hurricane Harvey and showing up and trying to support the victims. Something Bush and Obama forgot to do.
