(Breitbart) – President Donald Trump’s approval rating is back at 50 percent according to a Rasmussen tracking poll released on Friday.
The daily presidential tracking poll for Friday reveals 50 percent of likely American voters approve of President Trump’s job performance, while 48 percent disapprove.
The last time Trump hit an approval rating over 50 percent was on February 25-27, when he was still in the early stages of responding to the coronavirus pandemic.
The president’s approval rating sank as low as 42 percent in late June during the George Floyd protests and subsequent violence and rioting on top of the worsening pandemic but has steadily ticked up in July.
Rasmussen’s daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of error is +/- 2.5 percentage points.
Flashback: Swing Voters In Michigan Say They Will Vote For Trump, Call Biden A “Puppet” Who’s “Not Mentally Capable Of Being President” (Video)
Swing voters in Michigan say they will vote for President Trump in the November election because they believe Biden is a “puppet” who is “not mentally capable of being president.”
The Axios focus group included nine swing voters in Michigan who voted for Barack Obama in 2012, but voted Trump in 2016.
One swing voter expressed his concern over Biden’s cognitive decline.
‘Biden is showing signs of dementia and would likely become a puppet — controlled by a lot of people in the Deep State,’ a voter named Matt T said, describing Biden as “up there in age.”
Jeff O said he’s picking Trump because “I don’t think that Biden is mentally capable of being president.”
“I just feel that what he’s saying is not making any sense to me,” said Sharon T. of Biden’s livestreams. She also called Biden “a puppet” for wearing a face mask in public.
