Trump’s Approval Rating the Same as Obama’s At Same Time in Presidency

The liberal media and their Democrat minders want you to believe that everyone universally hates President Donald Trump, but everyone just loved Obama. However, a recent poll found that Trump has about the same popularity rating two years into his presidency as Obama did at the same point.

According to Fox News, by the middle of December, Trump’s approval rating was at 46 percent.

As Fox reported on December 12:

Again this month Trump gets his best marks on handling the economy: 50 percent of voters approve, while 43 percent disapprove. On border security, it’s 46-49 percent, and on immigration, it’s 43-53 percent. On voters’ top concern, health care, the president is underwater by 23 points: 33-56 percent.

Overall, 46 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing and 52 percent disapprove. In January, it was 45-53 percent. Moreover, approval has barely budged all year, staying within the narrow range of 43 to 47 percent.

But, according to Gallup, Trump’s approval rating mirrors Obama two years in.

As American Mirror noted:

In a survey taken December 6-12 — after the midterms that swept Republicans back into Congressional majorities — Obama’s job approval was 45 percent.

Forty-eight percent disapproved of Obama’s performance.

At the same point in his presidency, Trump’s disapproval was 52 percent, according to the Fox poll.

Last week, President Trump celebrated a Rasmussen poll that found Trump at a 50% approval rating.

It has to be noted, though, that Rasmussen often has results a few points higher than other polling firms.
