Rasmussen: Trump Approval Rate Climbs Despite Media Onslaught

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.

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.”

    Of course this was before all of the dirt came out about Hillary and how she not only botched Benghazi but was also cozy with Wall Street and a biased, swamped-filled State Dept. Still, the 66% couldn’t help her win the presidency, and that’s a glaring fact – especially with many voters insisting they may not like Trump, but they simply cannot stand Hillary.

      Oh yeah, and it was kidnapped children that Saudi Arabia gave her the 20 million for… that too.

      Let us not forget the 25% of American Uranium she sold to the Russians! and progressive radicals are having melt downs over a phone call from a man who is waiting on appointment of National Security Advisor. Hmmm… not sure why doing your job is wrong.

    A key fact that this left out is that the trust level that the American people have in the media is at extremely low levels as reveled in other polls. The media only has one gear, create division and controversy to boost ratings and to forward a radical liberal agenda. Of course there are some exception, but they are in the minority. Good thing that minority exists too, otherwise there’d be no real hope for any real news to get out.

    The MSM’s pretense of civility and integrity is a joke. It’s corrupt to the core.

      Yes they think they have power over the people still to make them think what the radicals want them to think, but guess what. NOT! I call them Cartoon news, because they are so fake and live in the celebrity fantasy land. No one celebs or msm have a clue how real people had to live under an Obama Administration.

    Meh. Wishful thinking, it’s just a likely voters poll with less participants. Not sure about the other but reality is probably somewhere in between really.

    Nobody with any intelligence takes the media seriously. It’s just a propaganda machine at this point.

    Good job to The Hill for actually referencing all the polls on this although they dismissed the Rasmussen as an aberration, stating it leans Republican. I wonder how Rasmussen did in the general election compared to the other polls. I couldn’t access the comments there. but am curious to know if this has been discussed by their readers.

      They keep him consistent with Clinton throughout the election. They were basically within 5 points of each other up and down. Two days before Nov 8th they had Trump ahead by 3. Just like the LA Times! During the election their sample size was kept at 1000 or above, off seasons seems they are sampling lower but still producing consistent results.

    The media just make up whatever they want, and there are plenty of statisticians who will give them whatever number is needed. None of this can be believed anymore. Anti-liberal sentiment on the anonymous internet is growing, but people are still afraid of liberal fascism and so if their name is attached (FB) they don’t speak up.

      Especially when said liberals even boast about costing people their jobs. If you post anti-liberal commentary where these bastards can see it they’ll dogpile your employer and get you fired, and then brag about it afterwards. That’s why people keep quiet.

      We need to organise, to counter-dogpile thse companies whenever the SJWs start doing it. Companies follow the bottom line, and a liberal dogpile makes them think they’ll lose a lot of business. If enough of us get together and give them to understand they’ll lose a lot MORE business if they cave to the SJWs and fire their victim, the companies will start ignoring them.

    There is a war coming. I see no way around it now. It’s going to be Trump supporters vs everyone else. The media, the military industrial complex, the deep state, are all working against him. It’s going to be the elites vs the “common folk”. Left vs Right. They are actively trying to topple the president simply because they lost a free and democratic election. We need to start taking this seriously because these idiots are convinced the can get Trump out. Liberalism cannot win. It just can’t, we all know it.

      I’m ready to pick up a gun and start blowing SJW brains out as soon as everyone else is. I don’t want to go the lone-gunman-shoots-up-a-university route because that doesn’t make any difference and just plays into the liberal agenda of banning guns and claiming all white males are evil. But once there’s an organised army of us – I’m good to go.

      I think it is more the Radical Progressive left snowflakes and racists against Trump supporters which include the Military industrial complex, which isn’t government owned, but privately owned creating jobs, legal immigrants and as far as the deep state, well there will be no Deep State in a Trump Administration. You see, he is different, he isn’t like the establishment politicians, he will do what he needs for us the American people, not his or any other politicians pocket. Don’t expect you militant racist radical progressive goons to believe it, but it is true.

    “the Pew Research Center
    – which collected its data over six days and surveyed 1,503 adults –
    puts the President’s approval rating at 39%.”

    And where did the Pew Research Center source those 1503 adults from? Bay Area San Francisco?

      Yep and those are the same kind of polls, that threw the media and the radical progressives for a loop. They were using an ex Hillary campaigner’s polling company who’s group consisted of 75% Hillary Supporters and 25% other supporters…….. LOL! They screwed themselves by cheating.

      They are asking the same people that told them hillary was going to win by a landslide.

    Sane liberals are jumping the sinking on the left Democrat ship. The more well known ones are announcing it like David Rubin but I am seeing many liberals saying they are leaving the Democrat party in many social media comments.

    Mainstream media has lost millions of viewers. This is definitely going to be hitting their pocketbooks.
