Trump Seen As Better Leader But Still Too Confrontational

Trump Seen As Better Leader But Still Too Confrontational

Voters have a more favorable opinion of President Trump’s leadership these days, but they still think he’s too confrontational.

Forty-five percent (45%) of Likely U.S. Voters now rate the president as a good or excellent leader, up from 39% a year ago and 38% just after his inauguration in 2017. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% still rate Trump’s performance as poor, but that’s down from 48% last March. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
