Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll released Thursday shows that the percentage of U.S. likely voters approving of President Donald Trump’s job performance has risen above fifty percent for the first day this month.

At 52%, Pres. Trump’s job approval is up from Wednesday’s 49% level. The last time a majority of voters approved of Trump’s performance was nearly a month earlier, when it hit 52% on September 25.

Thursday’s 52% showing includes 41% who say they “strongly” approve of the job Trump’s doing. Another 43% say they strongly disapprove, leaving Trump still in negative territory among the nation’s most passionate voters.

One in four (26%) of Democrats and nearly nine in ten (85%) voiced approval, Rasmussen reported on Thursday.

While 53% of White voters voiced approval, Black voters registered 37% approval and 58% of those of other races gave the president a positive rating.
