Ridgewood NJ, in the latest Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-five percent (45%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 36% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2.

Also, in the Poll  a plurality (47%) of voters believe America’s intelligence agencies have their own political agenda after questions about the source of top-secret information leaked to the media to hurt the Trump administration.

Nearly half of those polled (48%) also believe most reporters are biased against the president.   Only 12% think they are biased for Trump, while 31% feel most reporters try to be fair and balanced. Needless to say, Republicans and Democrats strongly disagree in their assessments of the media.
