  • Trump’s Full-Month Approval Holds in September

    When tracking President Trump’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results for Trump’s presidency can be seen in the graphics below.

    The president earned a monthly job approval of 47% in September, unchanged from August and just two points shy of 49% in April, his high for the year to date. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapproved of his job performance last month, also unchanged from the month before.

  • Voters Think Charges Against ‘Deep State’ Anti-Trumpers Unlikely

  • Voters Give Pro-Kavanaugh Senators The Edge in November
