WASHINGTON – More than half of U.S. voters disapprove of President Donald Trump’s job performance, according to a poll released on Monday.
The Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll found that 53% of the respondents said they do not think Trump is doing a good job and 46% said they do think he is doing a good job.
Moreover, 43% said they strongly disapprove of Trump’s job performance and 32% said they strongly approve.
The survey included 1,500 likely voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
Monday’s poll results are fairly consistent with Trump’s approval ratings for the month thus far, which according to Rasmussen projections has ranged from 45 to 49%.
A recent Fox News poll showed Trump’s approval rating at 43%.
Trump told reporters on Sunday that he is “not happy” with the Fox poll numbers. He said he has doubts about whether they are accurate. Trump said that Fox, which has generally given him more positive news coverage than any other network, “has changed.”
Trump tweeted Monday that his internal poll numbers are “great.”
Great cohesion inside the Republican Party, the best I have ever seen. Despite all of the Fake News, my Poll Numbers are great. New internal polls show them to be the strongest we’ve had so far! Think what they’d be if I got fair media coverage!
