RUSH: Presidential approval. Rasmussen poll. Trump is up to 49% now. In the Rasmussen poll of likely U.S. voters, 49% approve, 49% disapprove. The latest figures include 35% who “strongly approve” of the way Trump is performing and 38% who “strongly disapprove.” So the presidential approval index rating is minus 3. All of these are big improvements.
In some polls, Trump’s been hovering in the high thirties or low forties. This is 49%, and the poll was taken, of course, after the tax cut had gone into effect.
