According to a new poll on Thursday, President Donald Trump received a higher approval rating than former President Barack Obama achieved 18 months into his first term in office.
The Rasmussen Reports poll showed that Trump received a 50 percent approval rating, while Obama only had a 45 percent approval in August of 2010.
Sixty-four percent of “likely Republican voters say that when it comes to major issues facing the nation, their views are closest to those of the president,” Rasmussen said.
Rasmussen collects their data for the polls from telephone and surveys of 500 likely voters a night.
Trump celebrated his new victory with a tweet on Thursday, saying, “Working hard, thank you!”

Over the past eight months, Trump has been experienced a mega-boost in ratings, and has kept steady between the mid-to-upper 40s.

Unfortunately for Obama, he took him until January of 2011 to achieve a 50 percent approval rating. That is 5 months longer than it took Trump.
Does that come as a big surprise? Not at all.
According to Newsweek, “Between June and July of this year, Trump earned 90 percent approval from Republicans in three separate Gallup Polls and has not experienced a mark lower than 81 percent approval from GOP members in 2018.”
The more that the mainstream media hates on Trump, the higher his ratings become.

Congratulations to the president on his excellent approval rating — it was very well-earned.
