DNC Fail: Trump Daily Job Approval Is Up Sharply

New polls showing President Trump’s approval ratings have increased significantly, and a good portion of voters say the convention has changed their votes.

New data from Rasmussen Reports show 51 percent of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance compared to 48 percent who disapprove.

This number is up from 46 percent just one month ago.

The large increase could certainly be a result of the Democratic National Convention as 19 percent of voters say the conventions have had an effect on their vote, despite the RNC not happening yet.

“Thirty-five percent (35%) say they are more likely to watch a convention this year than in previous years. Twenty-one percent (21%) are less likely to do so,” the report from Rasmussen said.

Another potential reason for Trump’s bump is that 59 percent of voters said they are likely to watch some of the RNC compared to the slightly less 53 percent who said they’d watch part of the DNC.

Among independents, 44 percent are likely to watch the DNC and 52 percent are likely to watch the RNC.
