President Trump's approval rating hits 50 percent, poll shows

"The rumblings that Ted Cruz was damaged by his presidential campaign were overstated", said Jim Henson, head of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin and co-director of the poll.

In November 2016, Rasmussen Reporters asserted that its final survey results leading up to the election were the single most accurate when compared to other polling groups, according to The Hill. For example, as long as Trump maintains 80 percent job approval among Texas Republicans, it is inconceivable that Republicans in the Texas congressional delegation will entertain any idea of impeachment proceedings.

Trump also faces disapproval in some key policy areas.

No other pollster tracked by RealClearPolitics came as close to the final results.

Beneath the 43 approval to 51 percent disapproval rating - in which 25 percent of Texans polled said they strongly approve of Trump's tenure and 44 percent said they strongly disapprove - there is some important good news for Trump: Republicans remain overwhelmingly in his corner. Perhaps more significant, however, was its report that 64 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump's performance.

President Donald Trump unleashed a series of tweets Sunday morning, touting a poll that showed him with a 50% approval rating, which he said was higher than his predecessor.

Exactly two-thirds of Americans said they did not approve of how Trump is handling health care reform, while about the same about (64%) said they did not approve of Trump's climate change policies. He was the least-popular president-elect in modern history back in January, and he had a dismal approval rating after his first 100 days-the lowest of any president since Dwight Eisenhower. As historian and author Kevin Kruse noted on Twitter, only four of Trump's modern predecessors ever reached the 60 percent disapproval mark.

By contrast, "Trump did it in just 143 days", Kruse said.

Trump's approval rating has steadily declined during his challenging first months in the White House.

But among Democrats, 90 percent of respondents said Trump lacked honesty and the temperament to be president. The order increases by double the funding for apprenticeship grants to $200 million by reallocating money from existing job-training programs.
