President Trump’s approval rating shifts after Syrian airstrike


According to Rassmussen Reports, Wednesday’s Presidential Tracking Poll indicates that President Trump’s job approval rating has risen.  The poll shows that forty-seven (47%) of likely U.S. voters approve of the job he’s doing and fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove.

That’s up from thirty-five percent (35%) approval two weeks ago.

With 57% of likely U.S. voters in favor  of the president’s airstrike against an airfield in Syria, Trump’s approval rating has been in a slow but steady incline since the military action was ordered.

Included in Wednesday’s  figures are likely voters who strongly approve of Trump’s performance (29%) and those who strongly disapprove (43%).  Trump’s new presidential approval index rating is -14.

Rasmussen reports collects data daily via phone surveys.

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.
