President Donald Trump’s approval ratings soared to 52% in a new national poll after giving one of the most pro-life State of the Union addresses in recent memory, his highest level since shortly after his inauguration in 2017.
The Rasmussen daily presidential tracking poll shows 47 percent of likely US voters disapprove of his job performance.
Trump’s approval rating was at 55 percent just days after he was sworn in as president on Jan. 20, 2017.
The president touted the results in a tweet that included an image of the Drudge Report’s web page headline: “Trump 52% approval jolts Washington. Best in years.”
His marks have been on the rise since his State of the Union address last Tuesday and in the wake of the 35-day partial government shutdown over border security and his demand for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall.
The Rasmussen poll shows Donald Trump’s approval rating was at 46 percent the day the government shut down on Dec. 22 and fell to 43 percent on Jan. 14.
The daily tracking results come from surveys involving 500 likely voters each day and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. It has a plus/minus 2.5 percentage-point margin of error in the 1,500 sample.
