Trump’s Monthly Approval Continues to Fall

Trump’s Monthly Approval Continues to Fall

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.

Leading the nation through the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, the president earned a monthly job approval of 45% in April, down from 47% in March and a high of 49% for the year to date in February. In 2019, Trump’s monthly approval ran from a low of 44% in January to a high of 50% in April. He ended the year at 49%. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapproved of the president’s job performance this April, up three points from the month before.
