Trump’s Full-Month Approval Takes a Hit To Start Off 2019

Trump’s Full-Month Approval Takes a Hit To Start Off 2019

When tracking President Trump’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture.  To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results for Trump’s presidency can be seen in the graphics below.

The president earned a monthly job approval of 44% in January, down four points from the previous two months. This month’s finding is the lowest since January of 2018 and is down five points from his high for the year of 49% reached in both April and October. Fifty-five percent (55%) disapproved of his job performance last month, up four points from December and the highest since late 2017.
