Trump's favorite poll says his strong approval rating is below 30 percent

President Trump has praised Rasmussen Reports for producing "the most accurate" polls, although the latest news from the polling company might not have him so thrilled. As of Tuesday, Rasmussen finds Trump's "strong" approval rating is a mere 26 percent, while 45 percent of people "strongly disapprove" of the job he is doing in office.

Trump's lowest rating on Rasmussen came August 3, when a mere 23 percent of voters strongly approved of him.

Rasmussen also records "total" approval of the president, with Trump at 42 percent approval and 57 percent disapproval Tuesday. This is higher than his marks in the Gallup Daily tracking poll, which recorded a new floor for the president Monday at just 34 percent approval.

The Rasmussen poll surveyed 1,500 likely voters on landlines and through the internet and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent. The full daily results can be found here.
