According to a poll released by Rasmussen Reports, their daily presidential tracking poll on Friday, June 16, showed that 50% "likely voters" in the United States approve of the President's job performance.

There are other worrying signs for Trump. It showed Clinton up by two percentage points nationwide before the Democrat went onto win the popular vote by a single percent, to the great frustration of Trump, who triumphed in the Electoral College. Of the House proposal, 20 percent of Texas voters hold a favorable view and 51 percent have an unfavorable view.

Jim Henson, director of the Texas Politics Project, which conducts the poll, said one takeaway from the survey is that if people are expecting "the bottom to fall out of Trump's support" among Republicans because of all the bad news and tribulations he has experienced since he became president, "It's just not happening". "But Texas Republicans are holding steady". Only 5 percent of self-identified Democrats said he has the temperament for the office, while 68 percent of self-identified Republicans said he does have the proper temperament. Among Republicans, 15 percent were positive, 45 percent were negative and 40 percent were neutral.

When asked about Russia's impact on the 2016 election, only 8 percent of Republicans thought interference influenced the outcome, and only 9 percent of the same group thought that the Trump campaign and Russian Federation colluded in an effort to affect the campaign.

The failure of those expectations during the campaign are now fully in evidence. Forty-seven percent said he was incompetent, while 46 percent said he was competent.

This is reportedly the first time that President Trump's overall approval rating reached the 50% mark since April this year.

Trump was unpopular among Americans overall even as he was elected president, but the poll shows that even many Republicans have doubts. This no doubt informs many Democrats' astonishment that Trump supporters don't see him as they do. Once again, the answers were colored by party affiliation: 74 percent of Democratic voters said yes, while 80 percent of Republican voters said no. That's slightly higher than the 33 percent who disapproved in February's UT/TT Poll, but he continues to get more positive than negative reviews.

While the White House has always been defined by tumult and some Republicans have been withdrawing from the president for a while, recent signs have been particularly worrying for Trump. Until and unless their voters shift their attitudes toward him, the Republican elected officials who have acceded to his leadership remain bound to a president who nearly daily calls into question their ability to trust in any of the qualities his voters seem to think he possesses.
