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.

"How much was fact?" Blitzer asked. "How much was false?"

"Well, it depended Wolf on who we were listening to," Dale replied.

"I think it's important for us as journalists to say when both sides are not alike -- and they were not alike tonight," he explained.

Jake Tapper stunned by Trump’s debate: ‘That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck’

CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.

"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."

"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"
