President's approval rating at 40%, according to two new polls

The President's approval rating rose to 51% among likely American voters Monday; edging upwards despite weeks of negative media coverage surrounding the Russian Federation investigation and Trump's personal lawyer.

The conservative-leaning Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows 50 percent of likely USA voters approved of the job Trump was doing compared to 49 percent who disapproved. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

The Washington Post/ABC News poll has determined that 40 percent of respondents approve of whatever Trump is doing on the White House, while 56 percent disapprove of his performance. When looking at approval ratings of Trump's handling of the economy, Americans are almost evenly spit, with 46% approval and 48% disapproval.

According to the Real Clear Politics presidential approval average the Rasmussen number is an outlier.

The president said it's "hard to believe" he is at 50 percent in the Rasmussen poll, given all the "phony stories and Fake News".

According to ABC News/Washington Post polls, this is Trump's highest approval rating in a year and comes as consumer confidence reached its highest since February 2001, according to the weekly Bloomberg Consumer Confort Index. Most other polls tracked by RealClearPolitics showed Clinton leading by three or four points.

Only one polling entity tracked by RealClearPolitics had Trump leading going into Election Day: A collaboration poll between Investor's Business Daily and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence that had Trump leading by two points. The Monmouth University poll showed Clinton leading by six - the furthest off of any poll tracked by RealClearPolitics.
