Imagine: Trump Ties Obama at 46% Approval and 53% Disapproval At Year End

Rasmussen Reports latest Presidential Tracking Poll shows that President’s Trump’s year end approval/disapproval rating is 46% approve and 53% disapprove.  That happens to be the same rating that President Obama received at the same time of his presidency.

What is remarkable about that is this headline from Pew Research:

Trump media three times more negative than for Obama, just 5 percent positive

What would Trump’s approval rating be if his media coverage was as favorable as Obama’s?  We shall never know.  However, it is logical to assume it would be higher than it is and therefore higher than Obama’s.

In any case, the fact that at year’s end they have the same number is more evidence of just how Divided this Era is.
