President Donald Trump’s overall approval rating has climbed above 50 percent according to the latest Rasmussen poll.
Tuesday’s daily presidential tracking poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports indicates that Trump’s job performance now enjoys a 52 percent approval rating among likely voters.
His approval-disapproval is heavily split along party lines, with 79 percent of Republicans approving and 72 percent of Democrats disapproving. Fifty-one percent of those who claim no party affiliation approve what the commander-in-chief has been doing so far and 49 percent disapproving.
This is welcome news coming fast on the heels of the president’s national security advisor tendering his resignation amid controversy, prompting the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of White House leaks.
The poll results, on the other hand, are not so welcoming to Democrats.

@DailyCaller I wondered why the far left media went quiet on his approval rating all a sudden!

The results of the survey came also as a sigh of relief to Trump supporters.

The Rasmussen poll contrasts to a DesMoines Register survey indicating that his approval rating is 42 percent among Iowans.
