Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll had Trump’s approval rating at 50 percent on Friday, with 49 percent of respondents disapproving of his job performance.  

According to the poll, 34 percent of respondents strongly approve of Trump’s performance, while 40 percent highly disapprove.

Most other major polls currently have the president’s approval rating hovering around the low 40s.

In recent months, however, Rasmussen had Trump’s approval rating in the high 40s and low 50s.

The poll surveyed 500 people and the margin of error is 2.5 percentage points.
