Even Donald Trump’s Favorite Poll Has Him Bottoming Out

Donald Trump’s favorite polling agency has always been Rasmussen, based in. When the President tweets out an image of a poll that shows him with over a 50% approval rating, it usually comes from them. Rasmussen had a good showing during the 2016 election, showing Hillary Clinton with only a 2% popular vote lead.

The website, 538.com, ranks Rasmussen as a reliable polling service but also assigns a 1.5% Republican partisan lean to their numbers. So it must have been a shock for the White House to see Trump with a 15% net negative approval rating in Thursday’s numbers.

On Monday, pollster Josh Jordan predicted that bad numbers could be coming for Trump. He tweeted, “Rasmussen: Trump approval falls five net points to 43-55, his worst day since April 13th. Most interestingly, today is his worst ‘approval index’ (strongly approve minus strongly disapprove) since January *2019.* His strongly approve is at 31%, strongly disapprove at 47%.”

And those numbers got worse on Wednesday. Today’s 42% job approval against a 57% disapproval stands as Trump’s worst rating in 2 years. Some of the drop is attributed to the President’s calls to investigate MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough for murder.

Activist Amy Siskind wrote of the poll, “This seems significant: Trump’s approval with his favorite pollster conservative Rasmussen has him down to 42% approve, 57% disapprove. You have to go back more than 2 years, to January 2018 to find his approval that low.”
