Trump Approval Index Month-by-Month

Trump’s Monthly Approval Hits 2020 High 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.

 

As the president employs federal agents to help quell violent protests in some cities and the coronavirus lockdown continues, he earned a monthly job approval of 47% in July. That’s up from 45% in June but still below his high to date for the year of 49% in February. In 2019, Trump’s monthly approval ran from a low of 44% in January to a high of 50% in April. He ended the year at 49%. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapproved of the president’s job performance this July, down two points from the month before.
