According to the well-regarded Rasmussen poll (by way of Jim Hoft, who first connected these dots), President Trump’s job approval rating sits at a healthy 48 percent. At this exact time in his own presidency (February 7, 2010), Barack Obama’s job approval rating was just 44 percent. That puts Trump at +4 over Obama.
On that same date, a full 56 percent disapproved of the job Obama was doing. On the other hand, only 51 percent say the same about Trump — a +5 point advantage for our current president, and an overall advantage of +9.
This is nothing less than a massive failure for the American media — proof that this disgraced institution is now so discredited they can no longer move the needle.
