Last month, Trump touted a poll from a conservative-leaning polling group showing his approval rating at 46 percent.

“One of the most accurate polls last time around. But #FakeNews likes to say we’re in the 30’s. They are wrong. Some people think numbers could be in the 50's. Together, WE will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump wrote on Twitter about the poll from Rasmussen.

Trump often touts polls showing approval ratings in his favor while blasting other polls as “fake” or wrong.
