Data from Rasmussen Reports indicates that the majority of likely voters in America now approve of President Donald Trump despite his undoubtedly contentious first few weeks in the White House.
According to Rasmussen Reports’ website, this data came in at 9:30 AM – several hours before President Trump’s fiery press conference in which he blasted numerous members of the media.
Nonetheless, many see these results – which Rasmussen collects by polling 500 likely voters each night and presenting rates on “a three-day rolling average basis” – as a clear sign that the President is coming out on top despite continued attacks from the media.
Trump's approval rate now at 55%. Keep up the pressure against the libtards and DNC idiots

Trump's approval rate is at 55%. Listening to the hysterics of the left and their media colluders you'd think it was 5%. @Rasmussen_Poll

The Media keeps making these declarations of Trump's base abandoning him. I see NO evidence of that – just the opposite as Trump hits 55%.

Even Nigel Farage weighed in.

The approval rate of 55% – and, consequentially a disapproval rate of 45% – is not going uncontested, however.
As The Hill reports, the Pew Research Center – which collected its data over six days and surveyed 1,503 adults – puts the President’s approval rating at 39%.
It shouldn’t be hard to guess which figure liberals are focusing on.

Hillary's approval rating as Secretary of State began at 65% and was 66% upon leaving.
After four weeks, Trump's approval rating is 39%.
