A quick post about President Trump’s approval numbers. Rasmussen Reports surveys tend to give the President higher numbers because they do not ask “adults” or “registered voters” but “likely voters.”

But what is also true, as was pointed out today by Jim Hoft, is that President Trump’s approval number of 50% is 5 points higher than President Obama’s approval figures at a comparable point in his first term.

Part of that boost, as recorded by a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll in an exclusive to the Hill newspaper in June, was a 10-point spike in Hispanic support for Mr. Trump.
