Tracking Trump - The President's approval for November 10th:
Bottom Line: This is one of two weekly tracking stories to get a reality/temperature check with regard to what's really going on with public opinion of the President. In this series we'll track the high point, low point and current ratings...
Trump's lowest ratings: 37% approval and 59% disapprove: -22% (8/4/17)
Trump highest approval ratings were an average 45% approval and 43% disapproval +2% (1/27/17)
Trump's current ratings: 38% approval and 57% disapprove: -19%
President Trump's rating was down a point this week despite more exceedingly positive economic news. I'm continuing to track a trend with President Trump's ratings. The more likely someone is to vote, the higher his overall approval rating.
With adult only samples his rating over the past week averaged: 36%
Registered voters only: 39%
Likely voters: 42%
We're now a full month into this trend. The President's approval ratings aren't good regardless but there's a big difference between 36% & 42% (one that's statistically more significant than just 6%). We're in an important window of time with the budget deal now passed in Congress and the high potential for tax reform sitting in front of us. If the President has two thirds of our top priorities enacted in his first full year as President that's arguably a success - especially if healthcare reform happens early in 2018.
The range was Rasmussen –15% to Reuters -25%
Until next week...
