Trump’s Monthly Job Approval Holds Steady in December

Trump’s Monthly Job Approval Holds Steady in December

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 48% in December, unchanged from the month before. That’s down just one point from his high for the year of 49% reached in both April and October. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapproved of his job performance last month, up a point from November.
