President Donald Trump’s approval rating is now higher than former President Barack Obama’s at this point in his presidency, according to the results of a daily poll released Tuesday (02/27/2018).
As of Tuesday, 50 percent of likely voters in the United States approved of President Trump’s job performance, according to the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll. On this date during year two of Obama’s first term, only 43 percent of likely voters approved of how the president was performing, the same poll found.
Polls conducted by CNN, of course, show President Trump with lower approval ratings, and this is what they choose to report, but we all know how reliable CNN’s polls are. “Trump has no path to victory,” was what they declared, based on their polls, during the 2016 presidential election.
Across numerous polls, President Trump has performed better in recent weeks. President Trump tweeted this news, adding, “Other Trump polls are way up also. So why does the media refuse to report this? Oh well, someday!”
I guess it’s hard for me to share The President’s optimism. Somehow I don’t think someday will ever come.
