In the midst of intelligence leaks to the media designed to hurt the new president, more American voters (55 percent) approve of President Trump’s job performance, according to the latest poll from Rasmussen.
The rating has been slowly rising since Trump took office.
Approximately 47 percent of voters now believe that intelligence agencies in the U.S. have their own political agenda. And nearly half of voters believe that most news reporters are working against the president.
“Only 12% think they are biased for Trump, while 31% feel most reporters try to be fair and balanced. Needless to say, Republicans and Democrats strongly disagree in their assessments of the media,” says the report.
A majority of voters surveyed said they are now concerned that the country is less safe since the president’s travel ban was halted because the State Department has been rapidly accepting new refugees from countries that were identified as terrorist havens. Most people support Trump’s efforts to better screen incoming refugees.
The numbers show that 45 percent of voters said they disapprove of the president’s job performance.
