And, yesterday, the Presidential approval rating surpassed that of Barack Obama when he had been in office as long!

Donald Trump’s Presidential approval numbers are going up despite the stock market. What he has accomplished counts for a lot with voters. The Democrats’ attempt to criminalize the administration using bogus accusations is not working with a majority of Americans.

From Rasmussin Reports comes “Daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 34% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 43% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9. (see trends).

The House today will vote on a two-year budget deal the Senate passed yesterday to increase government spending and avert another shutdown.

Voters last summer favored major spending cuts but were losing confidence that those cuts were coming.

A day earlier the President’s numbers weren’t as high, but he passed another marker. As Jim Hoft wrote at the Gateway Pundit, “AMAZING! President Trump’s Approval Rating Tops Barack Obama BY 4 POINTS at Same Time of His Presidency.

President Trump has a stronger approval rating today than media darling Barack Obama did back in 2010 on this same day.

Back on February 7, 2010 Barack Obama had an approval rating of 44% while 56% of likely voters disapproved of the far left president.

And then there was this great conversation on The View:
