Trump’s Approval Higher During Impeachment Than Obama’s At Same Point In Presidency

Despite this past week’s public impeachment hearing, President Donald Trump’s approval rating hasn’t dropped significantly.

Instead, Trump maintains a strong approval rating despite the Democrats’ best efforts to attack him through the impeachment hearing. This fact is likely frustrating for many Democrats.

According to Rasmussen Reports Presidential Tracking Poll, half of the American voters approve of Trump’s job performance.

Trump’s approval rating is actually higher than President Barack Obama’s during the same point in his presidency:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 37% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -5. (see trends).

The president’s overall approval has been tracking up since Wednesday, the first day of the House impeachment hearings. It was at 46% on Wednesday morning, then rose to 48% yesterday and is now at 50%. Two of the three nights in today’s survey follow the highly-publicized hearings.

To make matters worse for Democrats, another recent survey from Rasmussen Reports showed that most Americans think the media was actively trying to get Trump impeached:

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Likely U.S. Voters think most reporters are trying to help impeach President Trump when they write or talk about the impeachment effort. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 32% believe most reporters are simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner. Eight percent (8%) say most are trying to block Trump’s impeachment.
