President Trump's approval rating hit its highest mark since February — about a month prior to the coronavirus pandemic that paralyzed the U.S. and the rest of the world.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 52% of "likely" U.S. voters approve of the president's job performance, while 48% disapprove.
Rasmussen also reported that an equal 42% "strongly approve" and "strongly disapprove" of the job president Trump is doing. This gives Trump a Presidential Approval Index rating of 0. Trump last saw a Presidential Approval Index rating of 0 on February 12.
In comparison to previous elections, both Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush had an approval rating less than 51% on the day they won the election.
