Results from Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday show a slight majority of likely U.S. voters now approve of President Trump’s job performance.
According to the latest poll, 53 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s performance and 47 percent disapprove.
Wednesday’s figures also show that 37% of the majority strongly approve of the way Trump is performing, while 39% strongly disapprove.
Rasmussen reported that most voters favor Trump’s temporary ban on refugees and visas for those coming to the U.S. from the seven middle eastern countries that have been identified as terrorist havens with no reliable vetting process.
In the government’s effort to identify potential threats as they currently exist in the U.S., President Trump told military leaders on Monday that “radical Islamic terrorism” is America’s number one enemy. A majority of voters appreciate the president’s specific wording to describe the enemy, according to the Rasmussen results.
A separate, national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen finds that only 29% of likely U.S. voters believe the continuing public protests against Trump are likely to cause him to change his policies, with just 13% saying the shift is very likely. Two-out-of-three voters (66%), however, think Trump is unlikely to change his policies because of the protests, including 25% who feel he is ‘not at all likely’ to do so.
President Trump has recently tweeted that he thinks negative polls are fake news, so Rasmussen is probably a trusted source for information… today.
Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.
