Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, December 28, 2017

President Donald Trump and his predecessor, Barack Obama, have at least one thing in common: identical approval and disapproval ratings in one national poll after their first year in office. Rasmussen Reports' latest poll showed Thursday that Trump had a 46 percent approval rating compared to a 53 percent disapproval figure, which were near the same percentages Obama received at the end of 2009. Obama polled at 46 percent approval and 54 percent disapproval in Rasmussen's December 31, 2009, results, according to its historical index of the 44th president's ratings. However, only 24 percent of respondents strongly approved of Obama's work at the time, and 42 percent strongly disapproved.

Currently, Trump's average approval rating sits at 39.3 percent with 56.2 percent disapproving, according to RealClearPolitics' composite. The average has climbed of late with many polls showing ratings above of 41 percent or higher, like NBC News/Wall Street Journal (41 percent), The Economist/YouGov (43 percent) and the Harvard-Harris poll (41 percent).

Rasmussen must be a caddy. It washes his balls, and pulls his putter on command.

The article states otherwise. Let's see if this fact get moderated away again.

You need to click to "registered/likely voters" on your link:

Rasmussen 46%

YouGov 43%

McLaughlin 45%

Survey Monkey 41%

Morning Consult 41%

Sorry it's so easy to show that you are wrong, as usual.

"registered/likely voters"

Approval polls are usually all voters. In theory, polls that sample all adults are less error-prone, since a pollster doesn't have to worry about projecting who will turn out to vote.

But hey, how would dumbass "lawyer" know that?
