A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows President Trump peaking in popularity just weeks before the November 3 election.
The president’s approval rating on Friday reached 53 percent, his highest approval rating in a year, outperforming former president Obama, who had a 49 percent approval rating at this point in his presidency. Trump’s approval rating has been at or above 51 percent for five days in a row in Rasmussen’s polls.
The poll also shows that 45 percent of Americans said Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. The president was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice last week for brokering two historic peace deals. In August, the Trump administration brokered a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates what included “full normalization of relations.” Additionally, Trump brokered yet another historic deal between Serbia and Kosovo earlier this month.
Although Rasmussen has consistently shown better poll results for the president than other national pollsters, it is important to note that it was the most accurate poll in 2016.
According to Rasmussen, the last time Trump reached 53 percent in his poll was when Pelosi announced that the House would begin impeachment proceedings.
Moreover, for the first time this week, Rasmussen showed Trump beating 47 percent to 46 percent in the 2020 election.
The president’s law and order messaging seems to be resonating with the American people.
