Being a supporter of President Donald Trump, I was pleased to see his approval rating going through the roof, according to the latest Rasmussen poll.
It has President Trump’s approval rating up to 50 percent, which is his highest since the beginning of May 2017 and his disapproval rate has also dipped to 48 percent.
The stunning turn of events for the president comes on the heels of his State of the Union address, where polls showed 75 percent of viewers approved of the speech. Also influencing the increasing rating is the more promising economic news centered around the Republican tax reform, which is gaining popularity quickly. The president and congressional Republicans still have their work to do, but rising poll numbers are encouraging.
