The Rasmussen Reports tracking poll for Wednesday says 38 percent of likely voters approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 62 percent disapprove.

A quarter of those polled said they strongly approve of how Trump is performing in the White House, while 50 percent strongly disapprove. 

The president, in previous months, has touted the Rasmussen poll on Twitter, calling it “one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election” while bragging about his approval rating at the time.

The president’s approval ratings in the conservative-leaning Rasmussen poll generally have been higher than in other polls.

Rasmussen Reports completes its daily tracking poll by surveying 500 likely voters each night over the phone. It reports the results on a rolling basis every three days.

The sample of 1,500 individuals has a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
