This news is especially amazing when you consider one simple thing. Obama had the media cheer leading for him every single day, while Trump has the exact opposite.

Nolte: Trump Job Approval Jumps to 53% – Seven Points Higher Than Obama
President Trump’s job approval ratings currently sits at a robust 53 percent, a full seven points higher than Barack Obama at this same point his presidency.
On April 9, 2011, a little over two years into his first term, 46 percent of those polled by Rasmussen approved of the job Obama was doing, compared to 53 percent who disapproved. That put Barry upside down by seven points.
On the issue of strongly approve and strongly disapprove, Obama was upside down by a whopping 17 points, with only 21 percent strongly approving of the job he’s doing while 38 percent strongly disapproved…
So not only is Trump’s overall job approval seven points higher than Obama’s was at this same time, Trump is scoring 15 points better (-7 compared to +8) on the question of approve/disapprove and a whopping 18 points better (-17 compared to +1) on the question of strongly approve/strongly disapprove.
Trump’s 53 percent approval rating is his best showing in this poll since the early months of his presidency.
Rush Limbaugh also talked about Trump’s numbers during his show on Tuesday.
From Rush’s website:
Rasmussen: Trump at 53% Approval, 7 Points Higher Than Obama at Same Point
RUSH: The Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking poll: “President Trump today shows at 53% job approval likely U.S. voters, 45% disapprove.” But here’s the thing. At 53%, Donald Trump is seven points above where the, quote, “extremely popular,” unquote Obama was at this same point in his first term. Remember coming out of the 2010 midterms Obama was toast. The Republicans picked up 60, 63 seats in the House. Obamacare had just happened. A lot of America was unhappy about it….
So Obama was down, but back then the Drive-Bys were calling him very popular. They never referred to Obama as having any trouble with public opinion.
Watch now as the liberal media tries to dismiss Trump’s high approval as irrelevant.
