It seems all the polls are getting on the same page.

Rasmussen, the generally more conservative polling company, that has in the recent past, shown more favorable numbers for President Trump, has some bad news.


Trump’s approval fell to 39 percent Monday, according to Rasmussen Reports — the first time his approval has dipped below 40 in the conservative poll. The poll showed him with a disapproval rating of 61 percent.

The conservative poll has generally shown approval ratings higher than those of other surveys, but the new poll places it in line with the findings of other surveys like Gallup, which has Trump’s approval at 38 percent.

This is actually very much in line with Trump’s numbers during the primaries, when you think about it. He hovered around the mid-30s to low-40s, with the majority of voters preferring somebody else. The problem was that there were so many other somebody elses that the numbers were woefully split.

It would seem some cap needs to be put in place on how many candidates can enter, at a time.


Trump has used Rasmussen to tout his favorable rating with voters in the past. He’ll likely not tweet this figure out.

As to what caused the dip in approval, there has been a lot going on.

The failure to secure an Obamacare repeal, multiple stories of turmoil within the White House, the ongoing Russia probe may all have had something to do with the fall in numbers.

Seriously, he can only ride Neil Gorsuch’s back for so long.

This was a rolling tracking poll, carried out by phone over the course of three nights. With 1,500 respondents, the poll has a 2.5 margin of error.
