50%, 40%, 35%: Polls on Trump approval are all over the place

A trio of polls released on President Donald Trump’s approval rating ranged from 35 percent to 50 percent on Friday, leaving some political watchers scratching their heads as they try to figure out whether the president is retaining the support of his once massive and energetic base as his agenda remains overshadowed by controversy.

The best data for Trump, and the polling numbers he featured in a Friday morning tweet, is the 50 percent approval rating he received from Rasmussen.

“This is the first time the president’s overall approval rating has hit the 50 percent mark since late April. His approval rating has ranged from a high of 59 percent in late January shortly after he took office to a low of 42 percent in early April,” the polling outlet relayed.

The Associated Press’s polling wing, meanwhile, painted a far less impressive picture of Trump’s current job approval among U.S. voters, declaring: “Most Americans say they think President Donald Trump has little to no respect for the country’s democratic traditions…”

The AP said just 35 percent of its respondents currently approve of the job the president is doing.
