47% Give Trump Positive Marks on Foreign Policy

47% Give Trump Positive Marks on Foreign Policy

With the economy soaring, President Trump’s ratings on economic issues are on the rise. Voters are pretty happy with his foreign policy, too, following his generally well-received summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of U.S. Likely Voters now rate the way Trump is handling economic issues as good or excellent. That’s up from 39% a year ago and 45% at the beginning of 2018. This is higher praise on the economy than President Obama received during most of his presidency.
