Rasmussen has show in consistently in the 50% range:

Voter attitudes about President-elect Donald Trump have changed little since Thanksgiving, with just over half of voters continuing to give him favorable marks

Yeee-Haw!

Again, you're cherry picking

Again, you're cherry picking the poll you like. I note one, CBS, has him at 32%. I'll choose that one to advance my agenda. Since they're probably all wrong an average of 10 polls ranging from 32% to 52% is more accurate than picking the one that best fits your or my agenda. Interestingly, the average 42% is exactly what Fox News has…

Hunting for any excuse to

Hunting for any excuse to account for her loss, the main stream propaganda machine would have you believe she lost because she wasn't popular. Au contraire, she was more popular by over 3 million votes. If the baggage she carries wasn't exposed lending doubt to some of the lemmings she would have swamped Trump.

When I was a kid my parents could go into the voting booth and pull one lever to vote for every candidate on the Democrat or Republican ticket. In those days of Roosevelt he was giving the masses what they wanted and keeping his promises, the right of organized labor to steal and the money men (banks) loan guarantees. They don't need to do that any more but they need a villain because things are not going too well for more and more people so it was time for them to lose and prove the Republicans are the villains they make them out to be because without someone to blame for your misfortunes their game would be exposed.

It appears the Trump propaganda machine has now more credibility than the Clinton or Obama faction. Or, is it that they selectively polled Trump supporters. We have built ourselves a vicious cycle of perfidy and so long as we let governments to control the economic system things will never change.

Ah, yes. Thanks AC. The dreaded oversampling isn't back... it never left. MSM is still Fake News.

The polls were right, Hillary

The polls were right, Hillary did win by over 3 million votes. The problem was those votes didn't count as much as the ones Trump got because he gamed the system and concentrated on those states where the votes count for more.

Rasmussen - Trump

-
Rasmussen - Trump favorability up to 57%:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

Oh, by the way:

President Barack Obama had an average approval rating of 47.9 percent during his time in office, according to the Gallup poll.

That puts him behind Richard Nixon, who resigned, and George W. Bush, who saw his approval rating drop as low as 25 percent near the end of his term.

47.9%: Obama Had Lower Average Approval Rating Than Nixon or Bush

According to the Rasmussen

According to the Rasmussen link, Obama came into office with 67% approval rating and left with 62% approval. Go Trump Go; you can catch up! But seriously, Tom C. please continue to track the progress and keep us informed.

PMCONUSA is it really necessary to say that Trump gamed the system? To me he just organized his campaign to win knowing that the electoral college was the path to theWH.

The CNN portion of a poll

The CNN portion of a poll that had me most hopeful was 63% think he can lead us in economic matters and 61% think the jobs outlook will improve under Trump...

Please clarify.

Please clarify.
He is elected president and sworn in pursuant to the constitution.
Just where does his like ability come into play ? Except to perpetuate the
criticism factions. If he is totally unlikeable but what he p[oroses is inacted and works
he is an unlikeable whatever but successful.

Bruce:

Bruce:

Trump supporters are like Trump; obsessed with winning margins, popularity, poll numbers and the Inaugural crowd size. That’s why Trump’s Press Secretary went bonkers and reamed the press corps a new one with his alternative facts crap on Saturday. Also why Trump visits the CIA Office, and stands in front of the Wall of Honor and talk’s ad nausea about himself, how many magazine covers he’s been on and once again about how many people were at his Inauguration.

Hopefully someone will inform Trump that the election is over, he won, and now time to actually be President. Let Tom C worry about his approval ratings.

I see with your point ,but leave some room once in awhile for those who have supported but disagree with some things
and how they are done. These dynamics are being perpetuated on both sides.

Let Tom C worry about his approval ratings.

I'm not worried about his approval ratings. I'm just responding to the lefties that are obsessed with trying to prove he is America's most hated persona. You don't think the lefties are obsessed with that? Heck, they are the one who don't think the elections are over.

I'm just laughing at them. They are such losers.

What will be most satisfying

What will be most satisfying will be to see President Trump appoint the next four Supreme Court Judges. This will truly be a well deserved requiem of leftist ideology ( may it have eternal rest never to see the light of life again) in order to bring this country back into a more humanitarian profile.

Without doubt, it will not die quietly.

Of course given the velocity of the his executive orders, I imagine this will gyrate pretty wildly over the next 100 days.

Just so no one gets accused

Just so no one gets accused of cherry picking, here is a summary of all available polls:
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/

No idea on the methodology of any of these.

Edit: just in case anyone was accusing Rasmussen of being biased, they gave Obama a 62% approval rating last week:
President Obama Job Approval Rasmussen Reports Approve 62, Disapprove 38 Approve +24

here is a summary of all

here is a summary of all available polls:

President Trump Job Approval Gallup Approve 46, Disapprove 45 Approve +1

President Trump Job Approval Rasmussen Reports Approve 57, Disapprove 43 Approve +14
President Trump Job Approval Economist/YouGov Approve 43, Disapprove 39 Approve +4
President Trump Job Approval Reuters/Ipsos Approve 43, Disapprove 45 Disapprove +2

Average approve over disapprove +4. Taking out the high and low, still gives you +2.5.

When it comes to President

When it comes to President Trump and his administration I see polls becoming as irrelevant as msnbc,cnn nyt and other news organs to his administration...... That's not necessarily a bad thing.....Hmmm what a unique idea to have an administration that's not governing based on a popularity contest.......... Fuh duh you know she won the popular vote.......
