WASHINGTON – More than half of U.S. voters disapprove of President Donald Trump’s job performance, according to a poll released Tuesday.
The Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll found that 53% of the respondents said they do not think Trump is doing a good job and 46% said they do think he is doing a good job.
Moreover, 42% said they strongly disapprove of the president’s job performance and 31% said they strongly approve.
The survey included 1,500 likely voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
Tuesday’s poll results are fairly consistent with Trump’s approval ratings for the month thus far, which according to Rasmussen projections has ranged from 46% to 49%.
A recent Gallup poll showed Trump’s approval rating at 42%.
Barack Obama had a 43% approval rating at roughly the same point in his presidency, according to Gallup.
