Trump’s favorite pollster shows his approval rating crashing and burning amid shutdown chaos

Published

on

President Donald Trump in the past has regularly touted polls from Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning pollster that has traditionally found his approval rating to be much higher than all other reputable pollsters.

However, the president will likely not be promoting the latest Rasmussen poll on his Twitter account any time soon.

In its daily tracking poll released Monday, Rasmussen found that Trump’s approval rating has fallen all the way to 43 percent, while his disapproval rating has climbed to 55 percent. Additionally, Rasmussen found that 46 percent of voters “strongly disapprove” of Trump’s performance, which is three points higher than his overall approval and 14 points higher than the percentage of voters who “strongly approve” of the job he’s doing.

The latest numbers mark a significant deterioration of the president’s standing in Rasmussen polls over the last month, as Trump’s approval in Rasmussen regularly touched the 50 percent mark in December 2018.

Polling aggregation website RealClearPolitics currently has Trump’s average approval rating at just below 42 percent, with a disapproval rating of 55 percent. Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight, meanwhile, gives Trump an average approval rating of just 41 percent, with a disapproval rating at 54 percent.

Published

Press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Saturday argued it was "dangerous for the country" for anyone to challenge the veracity of her claims.

Grisham made her argument after President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed Hospital for an unannounced doctor's visit, resulting in a great deal of speculation.

Following the visit, Grisham claimed Trump was "healthy" and "without complaints" -- a claim many found unlikely as the president has spent a good deal of time as president airing his many grievances.
