A new poll by Rasmussen shows Trump’s approval rating at 50%. This is higher than Obama’s 45% at the same point in his presidency. But don’t expect to hear about this polling report from the likes of MSNBC, CNN, ABC, New York Times, Washington Post and other news outlets that have discarded their journalistic ethics in favor of their own political agenda.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 50% of America’s Likely Voters approve of the job President Donald Trump is doing, according to the political polling firm. Meanwhile, 49% of the nation’s Likely Voters disapprove of Trump’s job performance, according to the report released on Thursday..
The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. (Watch video posted below.)
While the news media have arguably over-done their coverage of the Trump-Russia Collusion Probe headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, they’ve failed to report the costs of the nearly two-year investigation. The federal government has spent upwards of $17-million in taxpayers’ money so far investigating the Democratic Party’s and news media’s allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 election. nearly half of voters don’t think his probe is worth the money, and only a few believe the outcome will benefit our nation.
The Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 37% of Likely U.S. Voters believe, regardless of its outcome, that Mueller’s investigation will be good for the country in the long run. Twenty-nine percent (29%) think the results of his probe will be bad for the country. Twenty-three percent (23%) say it will have no impact. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.
Most voters are now unwilling to give the FBI a pass when it comes to playing politics in the last presidential election. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Russia is more likely than the FBI to have meddled in the 2016 presidential race. But 34% now think the FBI is more likely to have meddled in the election, while one-in-four voters (24%) are not sure which was the bigger meddler.
Most Republicans (55%) believe the FBI is more likely than Russia to have meddled in the 2016 election. Sixty-two percent (62%) of Democrats and unaffiliated voters by a 45% to 30% margin see Russia as the more likely transgressor.
But a sizable 26% of GOP voters, 20% of Democrats and 25% of unaffiliateds are undecided.
Besides the Rasmussen Reports survey, a recent Harvard/Harris poll recorded a 10-point spike in Hispanic support for Mr. Trump. It hasn’t received much attention from the mainstream media, which is heavily invested in its portrait of the president as an unrepentant — and unpopular — “nativist.”
