President Trump Job Approval 48%; Disapproval 52%

The mission of is to enhance the public dialogue through data-driven analysis that explores the underlying currents of public opinion.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of Registered Voters nationwide approve of the way that President Trump is handling his job while 52% disapprove. These results, based upon a full week of polling from December 2-7, are unchanged from a week ago and at the high end of a very narrow range measured for several months.

Those totals include 26% Strongly Approve and 37% Strongly Disapprove (see crosstab results). Job Approval surveys do not offer a “Not Sure” response option. Other polls typically show about 5 percent of responses fall into that category (see Real Clear Politics). As a result,  both the Approval and Disapproval numbers appear to be a couple of points higher in our surveys than they would for comparable surveys.
