For the three days ending July 16, 2019, 47% of Registered Voters nationwide approve of the way that President Trump is handling his job while 53% disapprove.

These number have remained very stable for more than five months. Since January 28, the number approving has stayed within two points of 46% every single daily release (see daily topline trends and today’s crosstab results).

However, over the past three days, the president’s support on social media has fallen sharply.

The job approval totals include 25% who Strongly Approve and 39% who Strongly Disapprove.

Sixty percent (60%) of voters nationwide now believe it is at least somewhat likely President Trump will be successful in next year’s campaign. That’s up from 57% in May, 54% in April, 50% in March and 46% in February.

At the same time, 42% of voters nationwide believe President Trump should be impeached and removed from office. The latest ScottRasmussen.com survey shows that 46% disagree and 12% are not sure.

Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters nationwide believe that President Trump is at least as ethical as most politicians.

Still, just 35% believe he is a good role model for young Americans. By way of comparison, 31% believe most Members of Congress are good role models.

Thirty-five percent (35%) believe the country would be better off if Hillary Clinton was president. However, 41% think things would be worse.  Twenty-four percent (24%) don’t think it would make much difference.
