According to Rasmussen Reports’ latest Daily Presidential Tracking poll, President Donald Trump’s approval rating is at 50 percent, with his disapproval rating at 49 percent.
“The latest figures include 35 percent who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41 percent who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6,” Rasmussen added.
Trump’s average approval rating for July was 46 percent. The last time Rasmussen had Trump at 50 percent was in late May.

The height of his poll numbers comes after receiving much criticism for his conduct during a joint summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, along with the zero-tolerance policy for immigrant families caught crossing the border illegally.
Even in the face of much public scrutiny, a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released July 22 found Trump still had a 45 percent approval rating.
The Washington Times further reported that a recent Harvard/Harris poll noted a 10-point rise in support for Trump among voters who are Hispanic, with the positive economic milestones being the reason for the surge.
