UT/TT Poll: Immigration, Border Security Still Top Concerns For Texas Voters

"Sound of the atom splitting. coming from Rasmussen, most accurate poll of '16", Drudge wrote to his 512,000 followers.

Just one day after President Donald Trump boasted of last week's 50 percent approval rating reported by the right-leaning daily poll from Rasmussen Reports, the figure had already slumped two percentage points by Monday.

Though Trump says his was higher than former President Barack Obama's numbers, Obama's approval rating on the same day of his first term (June 16, 2009) was 56%, according to Rasmussen.

A new poll tracking President Donald Trump's approval rating shows American voters' view of the president has shifted in his favor in recent weeks.

The AP questionnaire worked to get to the bottom of what motivated or informed that disapproval, finding that 65 percent of respondents believed that Trump had no respect for democratic institutions.

In the overall district, over 140,000 voters cast their ballots early for the runoff, compared with 57,000 in April. Ossoff and Handel were the top two finishers in an April 19 primary, and advanced to the June 20 one-on-one runoff.

The only government official who scored higher than Trump in Zogby's poll was Trump's Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who scored an approval rating of 43 percent. The same poll found that only 50 percent of whites without a college degree approve of the job the president is doing.

And, while Republicans are more dissatisfied than ever since Trump took office, Democrats are even more concerned. A meager four percent of Democrats think the President to be honest. "They continue to embrace him".

While that sentiment appeared most common among Democrats and independents - 9 in 10 and 6 in 10, respectively - a third of Republican voters said Trump had little or no respect for democratic institutions in America. Two in five Texas voters - predominantly Democrats - believe Russian Federation influenced the 2016 election and in a way that benefitted Trump.

The internet survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted June 2 to 11 and has a margin of error of 2.83 percentage points.

Texas opinions were divided with 39 percent holding a favorable view of the existing health care law and 49 percent an unfavorable view. Numbers in charts might not add up to 100 percent because of rounding.
