Trump’s Full-Month Approval Bounces Back to 2018 Levels

Trump’s Full-Month Approval Bounces Back to 2018 Levels

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 49% in February, rebounding five points from January and recapturing the high ground he held for most of 2018. In January, Trump’s job approval had fallen to its lowest level in a year, but it has turned around since his well-received State of the Union address. Fifty percent (50%) still disapproved of his job performance last month, but that’s down from 55% in January.
