As President Donald Trump’s lawyers continue to challenge the 2020 election results in a number of key swing states and as the media continues to promote former Vice President Joe Biden as America’s new president-elect, the fact that Trump is still running this great nation seems to have been somewhat lost.
However, according to Breitbart, on Monday America was once again reminded of the president’s solid and steady leadership after the results of Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Presidential Tracking Poll revealed that Trump’s approval rating remains strong at over 50 percent.
As of this week, the president’s approval rating is 52 percent, which is solid territory especially given the turmoil that has surrounded the 2020 election and the fallout that quickly followed. It means a majority of likely voters approve of the job that Trump is doing in the White House.
In the same survey, 47 percent of voters felt differently, indicating that they do not approve of Trump’s current performance in the White House.
Those numbers provide Trump with a net-positive approval rating of five percent.
Trump’s 52 percent rating is right on track with former popular presidents like Barack Obama, who held a 53 percent rating around the same time period in 2012.
According to Newsweek, Trump scored a seven-month high in the FiveThirtyEight presidential approval rating tracker last week, at the peak of the post-election fervor, garnering 45 percent approval from those who were surveyed. That was a bump of five points from a low point in July.
Presumably, at this moment in time, Trump likely isn’t too concerned about his presidential performance tracking, as the stock market roars to new highs and the American economy steams forward even in the wake of reported surges in COVID-19 cases.
Even in the fog of the 2020 election, it’s clear that the president is still working every day to ensure this nation remains financially strong and that Americans remain safe under his watch.
