Running counter to other polls, the Rasmussen weekly White House Watch survey last week found that likely voters supported Democratic candidate Joe Biden by just 2% over Trump, 47% to 45%. Another 5% prefer a third-party candidate and 4% were undecided.
As for his job approval rating, Rasmussen’s daily Presidential Tracking Poll on Friday showed that 49% of likely U.S. voters approve of President Trump’s job performance while the same percentage disapprove. 37% strongly approve, while 42% strongly disapprove, giving Trump Presidential Approval Index of -5. That level matched some of his best index ratings in recent months and is a dramatic change from his -19 rating in June.
