President Donald Trump’s approval rating stands at 50 percent according to Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll released Monday morning – putting Trump ahead of Obama at the exact same point in his predecessor’s presidency.
As the Daily Caller‘s Saagar Enjeti notes, a CNN poll found that Trump’s approval rating is at an 11-month high of 42 percent, which was in line with results from the Associated Press.
Methodology via Rasmussen; “Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.”
Trump’s base is predictably pleased with the results:
Obama approval: 46%
Trump approval: 50%
Obama Media Coverage: 95% POSITIVE
Trump Media Coverage: 95% NEGATIVE
Obama: EMPTY Hype
Trump: REAL Results

No moron. But it is hilarious to see Trump rise in every approval poll including CNN’s after the massive Stormy Daniels coverage. Lol losers. https://twitter.com/michaelianblack/status/980785333825626114 …
