President Trump’s approval rating comes in at 50 percent, according to Rasmussen Reports. Rasmussen conducted the poll after President Trump announced the United States’ withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal.
The poll result comes as President Trump is seeking to impose work requirements on food stamps, which is working its way through Congress, and has increased pressure on state and local jurisdictions who are harboring illegal immigrants. Earlier this week the president also made public remarks saying that criminals who murder police officers should receive the death penalty.
This week, 41 percent of people in the poll said America was headed in the right direction, while only 30 percent thought so in the same poll in January of 2017. The poll indicates that President Trump’s popularity, personally and politically, is inching upward while disapproval of his opponents is as well. The poll seems to indicate that the President is securing more support among the American people.
